The context that Muslims fear to apply to the killing in the name of their prophet

The context that Muslims fear to apply is the fact that Mohammed failed by peaceful persuasion to convince the Meccans of his claim to be a prophet from Allah. For thirteen years Mohammed preached his message and harassed the Meccans as much as he could in Mecca, knowing he had the protection of his uncle. Nevertheless he failed to convince the Meccans to follow him en masse, leave their polytheistic religion and submit to him as a prophet from Allah. The Meccans as a tribe and a community remained faithful to their ancestral religion.

When this project failed by peaceful means Mohammed decided to emigrate to Medina and start to build a power base from which he could engage the Meccans in warfare.

It was a war in which Mohammed was the initiator from the very beginning and in which he drew first blood by attacking the caravans of the Meccans.

This is the context about which Muslims are silent, for good reason, because it exposes Mohammed for what he was.

    The context that we Moslems keen to apply is the fact that Prophet Muhammad succeeds by peaceful persuasion to convince the Madinah Arabs of his claim to be the last Prophet from Allah, as well as the Jews of his role being a leader for maintaining a calm or detente between the Arabs and the Jews.

    For thirteen years Prophet Muhammad preached his message to all, including to the Arabs and the Jews outside Makkah as much as he could to his own close Makkah’s tribes, knowing he had no power to force anyone to Islam, not even to his protective uncle.

    The Madinah Arabs and the Jews turn to be Prophet’s new loyal protectors – even more better than his uncle – as well as to be his staunchest followers and neighbors.

    Prophet Muhammad’s success of convincing the Madinahs to follow him en masse, leave their polytheistic religion, and submit to him as the last Prophet from Allah or as the leader of state, is the unmatched fruits of his fifteen years (13 years in Makkah and 2 years in Madinah) nonviolence character and peaceful preaching.

    Prophet’s personal acceptance of the Hudaybiyya Treaty despite having so many unfair terms toward early Moslems proves that there’s no intention whatsoever of Moslems to wage a war on the Makkahs.

    The subsequent wars with Makkahs is not about religion, but a just attempt of retrieval again the Moslem’s belongings and properties that the Makkah had confiscated and stolen. The subsequent wars with the Jews is not about religion, but a just response to punish a crime of sedition within Madinah.

    The only known “religious war” under a full direction of Prophet Muhammad is a set of military campaigns to destroy some heathen idols around Makkah and Madinah after the return of Ka’bah into our Islamic rule.
