I think that you can carry this point much too far. Muslim does not equal terrorist. There is no direct a to b correlation here.
Yes, a true muslim is required (encouraged for some is a better term) to convert non-muslims to their faith, but like many religions there are extreme examples of how to accomplish that and the not so extreme ways. Conversion by the sword is used by some, but would not fly in the US under any circumstances. Here they use standard "western" conversion practices, showing what the person can get out of the religion, how it makes their life better, how it can make them feel better about themselves, etc...
Under Islam there can be no peace until all are Muslims. Does that mean that the mosques are all used for terrorist training grounds? No, and peace is not necessarily measured by the level of violence either. It depends on who you are asking and how they interpret their holy books. All that to say, you are over generalizing and it is seriously hurting your argument.
