in response to reader comment: Nozzi: Prove that the Meccans were the aggressors

Violating oaths is not fighting. Do you know what is the definition of 'violating? Please refer to your dictionary. Violating means breaking. Violating oaths means breaking oaths. Oaths is a certain words that is promised to your god or to our Allah. The phrase, a people have violated their oaths (pagans of Makkah), in Quran 9:13 could be implied that the pagans could have sweared to Makkah or to our Allah for certain action to do and yet they did not do it. I do not see any big deal in mentioning 'violate their oaths'.

However, the phrase, intended to expel Messenger, in Quran 9:13 has shown us very obvious that these Meccans had the intention to chase Messenger away. The phase, while they did attack you first, in Quran 9:13 gives an obvious clue that these pagans not only violating oaths but they did fight with Muhammad followers first. If all religions could respect each other and if the pagans would not fight with Muhammad and his followers, they would not be any war since all of them would respect each other.

From the very beginning of my few comments I did highlight that all religions have to respect each other until now and you, Plato, never mentions to encourage all religions to respect each other and this shows that moderate muslims are not what you think so bad and indeed, all moderate muslims, want peace but not violence. The only one that causes a lot of soceity's problem, the muslim extremists. To me I believe that these muslim extremists would feel proud that they are doing the work of Allah and have rewarded from Quran due to they believe many verses in Quran have supported their acts. You keep on bringing out verses to support that they act in accordance to the Holy Quran so as to cause them to feel to have a place in Paradise (though you, Plato, do not believe what we believe). However, we, moderate muslims, would call for their repentance and highlight all the sinful things that they act are against the Holy Quran.
