Plato,

With complete sympathy for your highly prepared but failed attempt to malign the actual face of Islam, I must say that playing with emotions and twisting the history cannot earn much because reality is totally against than what you are painting over here. Ironically, I have found some supporter of your ideas who think as if you are a wrestler and got be down with your joker action.

The history excerpts you are quoting are very very very over exaggerated and are engineered to malign the personality of Last and most influenced Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This is very natural because the Last Prophet challenged Christianity with full force and cornered Jews in that region. The hatred is inborn and much deep rooted which cannot be wiped out very easily. The one who overcome your power could never be seen with a good eye. Your anger and distress is natural and I don't mind it.

Allah gave all the authority to the Prophet to take strong action against those who were coming in the way of ensuring the supremecy of Islam. The tribe you discussed betrayed Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and did not honor the agreement to stay away from war of "Ahzab". Their fate was an example for those who misjudged Islamic power. Allah's anger will always give horrifying lessons specially to Jews to repent and understand that they cannot challenge the one and only Lord "Allah". Be it Holocaust or any other event of the history, Jews could not learn any lesson. The mistake of believing themselves as chosen one will also vanish on the day of judgment.

[62:5] The example of those who were ordered to bear (the responsibility of acting upon) the Torah, then they did not bear it, is like a donkey that carries a load of books. Evil is the example of those who have rejected Allah‘s verses. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. [62:6] Say, ―O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are the friends of Allah to the exclusion of all other people, then express your desire for death, if you are true. [62:7] And they will never express this desire, because of what their hands have sent ahead. And Allah is fully aware of the wrongdoers. [62:8] Say, ―Indeed, the death from which you (try to) run away has to visit you, then you will be sent back to the Knower of the Unseen and the seen, and He will tell you what you used to do.

I know that Quran's verses would change your view and I hope that God's message would some day melt your heart and make you repent and seek his forgiveness. Do not bank on this very very short span of life PLATO.
