"Muslims in those times fought the pagans because G-d told them too. The prophet (pbuh) did not want to fight back the pagans that attacked him nor did he want to fight any jew,christians or meccan that wished his death. but G-d ordered him to fight because it was the only way for him to survive and continue to preach G-ds word."

Poor Muslims what could they do? How could they not carry out God's orders?
