If the prophet wanted to eliminate all the people who opposed him he could have eliminated all the jews he encountered when he entered al-madina "yathrib" instead he made a treaty with them as the one you read.

i'm amazed why do you neglect my points as if i didn't write anything at all !! even your fabricated resources can't deny something like that treaty between the muslims and the Jews..which also supports my first point. "why making a treaty from the first place if killing was the goal".

P.F "why do we have to buy it when you claim that our resources of information which is made
by your own people "are fake"and disbelieve us when we commit the same reaction !"
Now you come to educate us about our OWN religion !! GOD !!!

Again..another example of distorted information :
you claimed that,
Sa'd bin Mu'adh, one of Muhammed's men, really had it in for these guys (which Muhammed knew full well of this hatred).

(Sa'ad bin Mu'adh) former Jewish man from "bani-Qurayza" who converted to Islam along with "(Nu'aym ibn Mas'ud) from bani-Ghatfan before the starting of the trench battle.

" Al-Aws tribe" supervisors of the early treaty , interceded begging the Prophet him) to be "
lenient "towards them. He suggested that "Sa'ad bin Mu'adh",( a former Jewish ally), be deputed to give verdict about them, and they agreed.

Sa'ad meanwhile stayed behind in Madinah due to a serious wound he sustained in the
Confederates Battle. He was summoned .
On his way to the Prophet , the Jews used to exhort him to be lenient in his judgement on
account of former friendship. Sa'ad remained silent but when they persisted he uttered: "It is
time for Sa'ad not to be afraid of the blame of the blamers." On hearing this
decisive attitude, some of them returned to Madinah waiting a desperate doom.

On arrival he alighted with the help of some men. He was informed that the Jews had agreed to
accept his verdict about them. He immediately wondered if his judgement would pass on all the
people present, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) included, turning his face away in honour of
him. The reply was positive.

He decided that all the able-bodied male persons belonging to the tribe should be killed, women and children taken prisoners and their wealth divided among the Muslim fighters. The Prophet accepted his judgement .

"The sentence for treachery is death according to the Arabic tribes law back then" even before
So yes, treachery is the worst crime of man kind,thus for a more worse punishment was founded....
