The treaty stated that the U. S. was not a Christian nation and, as such, it had "no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen (Muslims)." The treaty promised ongoing peace: "no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."
