Muslims - 3 days of plundering of unsurrendering town

Reader comment on item: The Muslim Brotherhood's Place in Islamist Politics

Submitted by Plamen Ivanov (Bulgaria), Oct 16, 2014 at 03:08

Dear Mr Daniel Pipes,

Thank you for posting my question from September 2nd and discussion so far.

I have another one, for anyone here.

We all know that after conquering Damascus in 634 Muslim forces for three days carried out unlimited killing, rape, plunder, enslavement, and arson.

Same happened in 1453 in Constantinople, again said to be for three days.

My qustion is where in Islam doctrine mentions that city that not surrenders should be subjected to such "measures": is it in Quran, Hadiths, Sharia, tradition, whatever?

Thank you all in advance!

With kind regards,

Plamen
