"In “John Quincy Adams: A Bibliography,” compiled by Lynn H. Parsons (Westport, CT, 1993, p. 41, entry#194), there is a section named “Unsigned essays dealing with the Russo-Turkish War and on Greece,” (The American Annual Register for 1827-28-29 (NY: 1830). In that section, Adams had the following to say about Islam:

The natural hatred of the Mussulmen towards the infidels is in just accordance with the precepts of the Koran…

This is in stark contrast to his view of the Christian religion:

The fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion is the extirpation of hatred from the human heart. It forbids the exercise of it, even towards enemies. […]

One sentence in particular stands out in his commentary about the Islamic ideology. And boy, it is hard-hitting…

In the 7th century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab … spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. … He declared undistinguishing and exterminating war as a part of his religion. … The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust, to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature.”"
