Nozzi: How many wars of your Prophet can you name that he did not start?

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: SMALL NUMBER OF MUSLIMS STILL COULD FIGHT BACK

Submitted by Plato (India), May 4, 2009 at 07:19

Nozzi, you write:

>>I, moderate muslims, discourage fightings when non-muslims do not start their fightings with us. However, let's assume that fightings are permissible then: <<

Your prophet never followed this principle. He attacked Abu Sufyan's caravan without provocation. He attacked Khaybar without provocation Your prophet attacked the Banu Quraiza after the Battle of the Trench on a trumped charge of perfidy. (Your present day Muslim historians ashamed of these attacks have devised some fancy explanations to account for them, invariably blaming the victims of Muhammad's attacks).

>>Fightings are also permissible for the victory of war:<<

Only if you are attacked and not by wars of aggression.

>>a) Small number of people could attack quietly at night while those people are not ready for war.<<

Your prophet was a master of this surprise attack tactic. He did that at Khaybar, the attack on Mecca, the Banu Mustaliq and with all his raids on caravans.

>>b) If you've ever watched the news from Indonesia, you would have discovered muslim extremists fight against non-muslims in smaller scale and yet you could identify in the news that they create riots; destroy houses, vandalism at the absence of Indonesia police. When police comes, they disappear from their sights.<<

This shows Muslims extremists of Indonesia are basically cowards.

>>c) Refer to the histroy of Prophet Muhammad and you would discover that when the meccans, the opponents, were relatively large in number as compared to Prophet Muhammad, Prophet Muhammad continued his fightings with them since their the meccans were the first that stirred up the battle.<<

Why don't you substantiate your claim that the Meccans stirred up trouble. I have shown you time after time that it is the Muslims who always stir up violence.

>>d) Have you ever watched the history of Ipman in China? He could defeat a number of Japanese by himself alone.<<

Really? Now that is one Messenger I would love to follow. For Ipman to single-handedly defeat the mighty Japanese Allah must have strengthened his flailing arms and legs even more than He had Muhammad's sword arm.

>>Yet, Prophet Muhammad did not even fight at all during his first three years after receiving revelations from Allah and continously preaching the message of Allah to his wife, friend, servant, and his daughters.<<

Which means Muhammad did start his life of slaughter after three years of frustration as a preacher.

Regards

Plato
