Arabic term or phrase: Salaam Salit
Unknown
Amon
oppressive peace
Explanation:
Assuming that the posted phrase is a transliteration of the Arabic phrase

سـلام سـليط

then the most probable intended meaning would be "oppressive peace," which would mean peace that is heavy-handedly imposed and cruelly maintained.

SALEET means one who exercises authority (SULTA) in a harsh or autocratic way.
