Certainly a time of turmoil and great (repeated) change. It's a translation, the original wasn't in English.

Not Cicero. This chap was rather more loquacious in falsehood.

Seneca, then, about the Civil War (or rather, civil wars) before the establishment of the Empire by Augustus?

The word 'Islam' means 'peace.' The word 'Muslim' means 'one who surrenders to God.' But the press makes us seem like haters.

I'd been going to have a rummage in my Historical Muslims bag, until I noticed the reference to "the press". Somebody of the modern age, then, and western? Use of the fucking stupid word "haters" suggests an American.

They use that word all the time here. Singaporeans, Malaysians, Burmese, Thai, Vietnamese - they all use it.

Lianachan is along the right lines, US born, still alive.

Edit: I can't find when he said it, only that the interwebs say he did. It is plausible that he did so I'll leave it up.
