I am looking for analogies within Islamic history, from islamic point of view. Within 100 years of the founding of islam, Muslims looted wholesale rich civilizations of Eastern roman Empire and persian Empire. Later this was repeated on Hindu civilization. More than the message of Allah, what prompted the arabs to go on a conquering spree was attainment of wealth , slaves and sex on demand.

Loot is a powerful motivating factor within Islam. Some years back an Islamist in Britain was advising his followers in the UK to cheat the system as much as possible, to live off the society and the government as much as possible and in indulge in any economic crime like Visa fraud . According to him, Allah has given a godgiven right to rule over others and other non Muslim nationss are a fair game for any kind of loot and crime.

Muslims are able to replicate their 1st century loot, All they have to do to BS about peaceful religion, human rights and so forth.
