in response to reader comment: off base

in Mecca the Prophet Muhammad was all about prayers amd meditation and peace and coperation with others...but in Medina the revelations talk about military power and invasion in the name of Islam (jihad)

Overcome people who do not accept Islam: Surah 2:217...4:71-104....8:24-36,39-65

4.89 They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.
47.4 So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.

9.123 O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

the last revelation from allah regarding christians and jews

Surah 8.39 And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah; but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do.....

in other words fight those who reject islam until all the worship is for allah alone...

Also the quoran teaches Muslims must not be friends with Christians or Jews....

5.51 O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

also 5:52-57 and surah 4:89

4.47 O you who have been given the Book! believe that which We have revealed, verifying what you have, before We alter faces then turn them on their backs, or curse them as We cursed the violaters of the Sabbath, and the command of Allah shall be executed.

just in case the meaning is not crystal clear this translation has a footnote at the bottom of the page which reads...

This verse is a severe warning to the Jews and Christians, and an absolute obligation that they must believe in Allah's Messenger Muhammad and in his Message of Islamic Monotheism and in this Quoran....
