This means that they are allowed to live only if they convert to Islam! This is an interesting verse. Acts of terrorism are part of any strategem of war. With Muslims, there seems to be no honorin battle. And forget about fairness, and "rules of engagement." That's for all the GI's, and other heroic Westerners. Muslims prefer to abide by the Koran, and sneak, lie, cheat, deceive, lie in wait, and do anything else to gain advantage.
