Nozzi:Why did the Muslims invade Persia, Egypt, Spain and India?

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: ALLAH IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REPENTANCE FROM ALL THE PAGANS

Nozzi you write:

>>Thus, we, moderate muslims, fight only when non-muslims start to fight with us, is indeed by nature is acceptable too.<<

Your prophet attacked without provocation caravans passing at great distances. He also raided and killed and enslaved tribes like those of Khaybar. Was Muhammad an extremist or moderate? He started fighting before the non-Muslims began hostilities.

Abu Backer went to war against tribes that apostatsised after the death of the prophet. He attacked without provocation.

Can you deny that your prophet and his favourite companion attacked without provocation?

Regards

Plato
