Jan, It is a pleasure to read from a non Muslim well versed iwth Islamic teachings and history. The world will be a better, more peaceful place if we learn more of each others faiths.

The Bani Qurayza, a Jewish tribe living in Madina with a pact not to aid the enemies of Muslims in exchange for peace and security for themselves and their families, protection from enemies and not required to fight for the Muslims but forbidden to aid the Muslims enemies; violated the treaty and conspired to assist the Non Believing Makkans (Quraishi idol worshippers) in their fight against the Muslims.

When this plot of treason was discovered, the Jewish tribe requested prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) to allow them to choose the person who will judge them and agree to abide by his judgement. They chose a Muslim who was known for his sympathy for the Jews and who had had many dealings with them. I forgot the name of this close follower of Muhammad. His judgement was that all the men of that tribe were to be executed.

And the law of the day was carried out.
