islam has laws of warfare never before seen. in fact, it introduced the code of cconduct in warfare which many un islamic nations today employ.

muslims arent allowed to kill non comabatants. for whatever reason.

muslims are not allowed to harm animals belonging to the enemy.

muslims are not even allowed to touch a mere plant in enemy territory with malicious intent.

muslims cannot harm monks, priests, rabbis and cannot damage religious temples.

muslims are suposed to treat the prisoners of war better than their own soldiers. they are to be provided with all their needs. if you are thinking of hotel service, you arent wrong.

muslims must consider releasing the enemy unharmed after receiving ransom.

before islam, this was a laughing matter. no one even imagined codifying these as rules for warfare. and the grand infidel could not have chosen a worse example than rome. he has forgotten that it was these romans who actually made gladiatorial sports official. rome was an empire raised in blood. and they certainly did not shy away from killing non combatants or turning prisoners of war into sex objects.
