>>Quran 9:13, "Will you not fight a people who have violated their oaths (pagans of Makkah), and intended to expel the Messenger while they did attack you first? Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him if you are believers." The phrase, they did attack you first, in Quran 9:13 provides a strong proof that muslims only fight when non-muslims start their fighting with us first. We, moderate muslims, do not fight in Singapore since non-muslims respect our religion here and why should we fight if they do not even fight with us first.<<

Nozzi, prove that the Meccans first violated their oaths. If you read 9:1-5 you will realize that it is the Muslims who have been told by Allah to violate their oaths. Muslims can violate their treaties but Pagans cannot. You see how unjust is your Allah.
