Nozzi: Unprovoked attacks were Muhammad's speciality

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: FIGHTING BACK IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED AS TERRORISM

Submitted by Plato (India), Apr 30, 2009 at 09:55

Nozzi you write:

>>Non-muslims start to fight with muslims. We, muslims, fight back so as to protect our mosque and our muslim people. This kind of fighting is not to be considered as terrorism since we fight so as to protect ourselves and our religion.<<

I have shown in many posts that your prophet and his followers set the example of attacking without provocation. Nakhla, Badr, Banu Nadir, Banu Qainuka, Banu Mustaliq. The conquest of Persian, Egypt, Spain, India.

You Muslims fight to conquer and destroy the mosques of other faiths. Your brothers destroyed thousands of temples in India. Somnath was destroyed many times. How many Muslim mosques can you show were destroyed by non-Muslims. Do you have any in Singapore, Malaysia or Indonesia. We only hear of Muslims desecrating Hindus shrines in Malaysia and attacks on Churches in Indonesia. The prophet also had a rival mosque destroyed which is referred to in 9:107-108

>>Terrorism is different from us since they start to fight even at the time when non-muslims do not start fighting with them.<<

The terrorists are only following the great example set by your prophet when he started his gazwas and saraias. They almost always surprise attacks and raids on unoffending caravans and tribes.

>>Terrorism stirs up problem and trouble in the society.<<

This is exactly what Muhammad did. He terrorized caravans and raided tribes resulting in trouble for the Arab society of the day.

>> However, moderate muslims do not fight when non-muslims do not start fighting with us. You could see the discrepancy between us. Terrorism does not want people to repent to become muslims and they only encourage muslims to kill and kill and they are happy when they see non-muslims lying around dead <<

You see the extremist Muslims harming moderate Muslims by killing non-Muslims. If you think this is not Allah's wish why don't you moderate Muslims fight the extremists among you. Unless you do that moderate Muslims will be seen as hypocrites shedding crocodile tears.

>>However, moderate muslims want to preach to non-muslims so that more and more will become muslims.<<

A certain number of Muslims will always become extremists. The more people you attract to your religion the more the world will have to suffer.

>>We do not kill non-muslims and we want to wait for their repentance. We want to show good conducts to them that they would return to Allah.<<

This Allah of yours has not stepped in to stop the bloodshed by Muslims in His name. Why would anyone want to believe you when you demonstrate your good conduct?
