“‘A’isha and Abdullah reported: As the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was about to breathe his last, he drew his sheet upon his face and when he felt uneasy, he uncovered his face and said in that very state: Let there be curse upon the Jews and the Christians that they have taken the graves of their apostles as places of worship. He in fact warned (his men) against what they (the Jews and the Christians) did.” — Sahih Muslim 1082
“Narrated ‘Aisha: Allah’s Apostle in his fatal illness said, ‘Allah cursed the Jews and the Christians, for they built the places of worship at the graves of their prophets.’ And if that had not been the case, then the Prophet’s grave would have been made prominent before the people. So (the Prophet ) was afraid, or the people were afraid that his grave might be taken as a place for worship.” — Sahih Bukhari 2.23.472
According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad died on June 8, 632, after once again cursing the Jews and Christians.
As for the historical reliability of these traditions, see here. But the Muslim contempt and hatred for Jews and Christians remains.
The final answer to whether Islam is a religion of peace is Muhammad’s final words to his followers in which he CURSED Christians and Jews. If Muhammad, the founder of Islam had meant for Islam to be a religion of peace, would he have cursed and killed Christians and Jews throughout his life and at the end on his death bed? If it had been someone else besides the founder of Islam who had said and done those things, then maybe Muslims could defend Islam as a religion of peace but when the founder of that religion said and done those things, it is impossible to defend as a “Religion of Peace.”
