I545 Mohammed assembled the Jews in their market and said “O Jews, be careful that Allah does not bring vengeance upon you the way he did to the Quryash. Become Muslims. You know that I am the prophet that was sent to you. You will find that in your scriptures.”
They replied “O Mohammed, you seem to think that we are your people. Don’t fool yourself. You may have killed a few merchants of the Quraysh, but we are men of war and real men”.
The response of the Koran:
[3.12] Say to those who disbelieve: You shall be vanquished, and driven together to hell; and evil is the resting-place.
[3.13] Indeed there was a sign for you in the two hosts (which) met together in encounter; one party fighting in the way of Allah and the other unbelieving, whom they saw twice as.many as themselves with the sight of the eye and Allah strengthens with His aid whom He pleases; most surely there is a lesson in this for those who have sight.
I546 A little later, Mohammed besieged the Jewish tribe of Banu Qaynuqu in their quarters. Neither of the other two Jewish tribes came to their support.
