Shall I smite them asks the king, no says the biblical prophet Elisha, yes says the islamic prophet Mohammed

2 Kings 6 v 20 And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said, LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see. And the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria. 21 And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them, My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them? 22 And he answered, Thou shalt not smite them: wouldest thou smite those whom thou hast taken captive with thy sword and with thy bow? set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go to their master. 23 And he prepared great provision for them: and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. So the bands of Syria came no more into the land of Israel.

Mohammed:

[8.17] So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy), but it was Allah Who smote, and that He might confer upon the believers a good gift from Himself; surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

Allah expects Muslims to do battle with those who do not believe what they believe, or enjoin what he enjoins, and to smite their necks, i.e. to cut their heads off, just as ISIS are doing to Christians:

[47.4] So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.

Or smite them with Sharia:

[5.33] The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement,

Or kill them, enslave them or hold them to ransom, see Islam Q and A:

Detaining prisoners

Prisoners should be detained until it is decided what is the best move. The ruler of the Muslims should detain prisoners until he decides what is in the Muslims’ best interests. He may ransom them for money, or exchange them for Muslim prisoners, or release them for nothing in return, or distribute them among the Muslims as slaves, or kill the men, but not the women and children, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade killing the latter. The purpose behind detaining prisoners is so that the Muslims may be protected from their evil. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to enjoin the Muslims to treat prisoners well, whereas the Romans and those who came before them the Assyrians and Pharaohs, all used to put out their prisoners’ eyes with hot irons, and flay them alive, feeding their skins to dogs, such that the prisoners preferred death to life.

What does the bible say:

Thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal. Elisha correctly understood what the law of Moses prohibited men from doing to other men, regardless of what they believe or what god they worship.

    What Elisha advised is far worse:
    (i) Killing the people that live in every fenced city.
    (ii) Destroying every good trees, to cause the painful starvation.
    (iii) Stopping the flow of waters of every wells, to choke every living men and animals to death slowly.
    (iv) Spoiling the good land with stones, to symbolise a great horror that Jews can show.

    2Ki 3
    14 And Elisha said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee.15 But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.16 And he said, Thus saith the LORD, Make this valley full of ditches.17 For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.19
    And ye shall smite every fenced city, and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree, and stop all wells of water, and spoil every good piece of land with stones.

    The Moabites refused to pay tribute. This is a declaration of war.

    “4And Mesha king of Moab was a sheepmaster, and rendered unto the king of Israel an hundred thousand lambs, and an hundred thousand rams, with the wool. 5But it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel.”

    “21And when all the Moabites heard that the kings were come up to fight against them, they gathered all that were able to put on armour, and upward, and stood in the border.

    “23And they said, This is blood: the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another: now therefore, Moab, to the spoil. 24And when they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and smote the Moabites, so that they fled before them: but they went forward smiting the Moabites, even in their country. 25And they beat down the cities, and on every good piece of land cast every man his stone, and filled it; and they stopped all the wells of water, and felled all the good trees: only in Kirharaseth left they the stones thereof; howbeit the slingers went about it, and smote it.

    “And ye shall smite every fenced city” doesn’t mean everyone in the city would be killed. It just means that the city would be taken by force.

    “but they went forward smiting the Moabites, even in their country. 25And they beat down the cities, and on every good piece of land cast every man his stone, and filled it; and they stopped all the wells of water, and felled all the good trees: only in Kirharaseth left they the stones thereof; howbeit the slingers went about it, and smote it.”

    The civilian population would have to re-locate while the damage was repaired.

    the law of the conquest of the promised land was that non-israelites who dwelt on the outskirts of the promised land had to pay tribute.

  4. θ says:

    All Moabites were slain inside of their country because they are trapped therein and can’t either flee to Edom.
    2Ki 3: 24 They went forward smiting the Moabites, even in their country.
    2Ki 3:26 To break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not.

    Only after the desperate king of Moab immolated his eldest son then Jews departed from him and unilaterally choose to withdraw themselves back to Israel.
    2Ki 3: 27 Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.

  5. θ says:

    “madmanna says: the law of the conquest of the promised land was that non-israelites who dwelt on the outskirts of the promised land had to pay tribute.”

    The Bible’s rule is worse, belligerent, and invasive.
    In Islam, Jizya or tributary is obligation for the Non-Moslem citizens only, not for the neighboring countries.

  6. madmanna says:

    lol, jihad is obligatory for the neighbouring countries, beligerent and invasive.
