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.
