Agreed. That is your ignorance and stupidity talking, not authetic history. Hint: learn muslim history from muslims not liars of sites like answering-islam Like I said, this is your ignorance and stupidity talking, not authentic history. because you are so utterly ignorant both about your own religion and mine, I'm gonna have to break my previous creed and do it the hard way. This post is a bit long, but will help you understand what is necessary when analyzing historical events, something called context. The Jews of Medina were waiting for their messiah/savior to come, who would give them total dominion on a land where many of them lost their lives due to coalition attacks from the Aws, Khazraj and Christians of al Sham who viewed them a Jesus' crucifiers. When Muhammad(sas) arrived at Medina after the Hijra, acclaimed by the people as the Messenger of God, they came to him to inquire about his motives. "I call men to bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that I am the Apostle of Allah, whom you find described in the Torah and of whom your own learned men have already informed you" he told them. After hearing what he had to say, they offered a truce with the Messenger on a written agreement that they would not support anyone against him or his Companions, be it with the tongue,hand,or arms, neither openly nor in secret. They agreed with him that in return "you (Muhammad) shall neither trouble us, nor anyone of our coreligionists until we see how it shall be with you and your people". The Prophet and the whole Muslim community lived in peace with them but the bitterness towards him grew as it implied Prophethood had ceased to be in the progeny of Isaac and had instead been established in the line of Ishmael. A bitterness which would greatly increase with the conversion of their Rabbi Abdullah ibn Salam and his household. This would lead to a war of words between the 2 communities. The Jews would send some of their rabbis fainting conversion and engaging in debates with the Prophet in front of the Muslims in order to create doubts 25:33"And they shall not bring to you any argument, but We have brought to you (one) with truth and best in significance". They would try causing dissensions among the former ennemies of Aws and Khazraj, now united under the banner of Islam, by arousing memories of the day of the Bu'ath war when al Aws vanquished al Khazraj. But Muhammad continued to talk to them, emphasizing their Islamic unity and brotherhood until their tears ran down in emotion and they embraced one another. The Quran reminds of this tension in 2:87-89. In the particular environment in which the Quran was revealed, there were at least two groups who believed that they were the chosen ones of God. The Quraysh who did not understand why, if Muhammad's prophethood was true, didnt God send His message to the noblest among them and the Jews who maintained that if God had chosen them to be the leaders over others during the past many centuries, then how could anyone -- especially the poor and the homeless -- surpass them in this case. It is primarily as a reply to such idiosyncrasies of the two groups that the Quran has stressed that no one has a monopoly over God�s guidance. The first victorious battles silenced the plotting in Medina of many hypocrites among the Muslims, the idolator spies, and the Jews. Especially after the success at Badr which made them feel that their position was degenerating into one of weakness and isolation. Only 2 years after his migration, the Prophet of God had managed to brake the traditional pattern of power distribution in the desert. The ennemies of Islam would meet clandestinely and encourage the composition and recitation of divisive poetry. Now the dispute was not over Muhammad's religious views but over his political power which grew tremendously after the victory of Badr. Addidng to the constant plotting, street fights would errupt between the 2 communities, the worst one being caused by the public humiliation of a Muslim woman by a group of Jews from the Bani Qainuqa which resulted in deaths from both sides. The Prophet urged them to honor their initial agreement, to which they responded with arrogance. This led to the expulsion of the whole tribe from Medina. After Badr, Abu Sufyan had vowed revenge against the Muslims he swore not to wash himself unless he killed the Prophet of God. He went by night to Medina to plot with the Jews of Banu Nadir and launched a small raid on the outskirts of Medina and managed to kill a few Muslims. Followed an incident which caused the accidental bloodshed of innocents, so the Prophet went to all notables of Medina, including Huyayy ibn Akhtab of Bani Nadir, asking for the payment of the diyat(blood money). He immediately sensed danger after entering the quarter of Bani Nadir, so he pretexted a call from nature and left, leaving his Companions knowing for sure they wouldnt be harmed as long as the Prophet was alive. On his way, he met a group of people called by Huyayy to help him in setting a trap to the Prophet in his quarters. Huyayy heard of the encounter, as well as the Prophet's knowledge concerning his intentions so the Muslims got up and left quickly for their homes. Ibn Surya, the most learned man from the Banu Nadir knew that after such an incident Muhammad would only offer 2 options: convert, or leave at once as a result of their braking the agreement. They were given 10 days to decide, and they preferred leaving after attempting a useless resistance. The decision to allow them to emigrate and take most of their possessions with them without harm would have grave consequences later, against the Muslims. At this point started one of the most bizarre twists in the history of monotheism vs polytheism. Muslims felt they had to develop a system of control and security which would protect them from all sides as they weren�t even secure within the city. This prevented their engagement in agriculture or commerce which was balanced with the booty acquired through the military campaigns. Fearing enemy attacks at any moment, the Prophet organized a channel of communication throughout the Arabian Peninsula which was at the time composed of a complex net of autonomous little republics, each of which extended over the territory inhabited or used by its various clans, and depended for its security on an intricate system of intertribal customs, pacts, and traditions. The Muslims had to keep steadfast from all these groups awaiting the opportunity to avenge itself on this man who had divided the Arabs in their religion, and, though emigrating from Mecca devoid of power or ally, had acquired, within the last five years by virtue of his great faith, such prestige and power as to make him a real threat to the strongest cities and tribes of Arabia. The animosity against Muhammad was such that the Jews turned against their own religion and their own Semite brethren's pure call to monotheism and preffered allying with the paganism which Moses and other biblical prophets fought. Even the pagan Quraysh were hesitant to form an alliance with the Jews, who were so close to Islam. They answered their concerns by giving preference to the Meccan religions. It was to this that the Quran referred in 4:51-54 "Have you not seen those to whom a portion of the Book has been given? They believe in idols and false deities and say of those who disbelieve: These are better guided in the path than those who believe. Those are they whom Allah has cursed, and whomever Allah curses you shall not find any helper for him. Or have they a share in the kingdom? But then they would not give to people even the speck in the date stone. Or do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? But indeed We have given to Ibrahim's children the Book and the wisdom, and We have given them a grand kingdom.So of them is he who believes in him, and of them is he who turns away from him, and hell is sufficient to burn." This attitude of the Jews toward Quraysh and their favoring of the latter's paganism over the monotheism of Muhammad was the subject of a severe rebuke by Dr. Israel Wolfenson in his "The Jews in Arabia" and is in sharp contrast with the attitude of the Christian Negus of Abyssinia who sheltered and protected the early days persecuted Muslims of Mecca. This self-contradiction, this favoring of paganism over monotheism and the encouragement of pagan forces to rise against the monotheistic forces would reach its peak in the Month of Shawwal 5/626 when the Jewish leaders of Bani Nadir and Qainuqa joined men of the Quraysh (promising them a whole year's crop from their settlement of Khaybar in case of victory), Kinanah and Ghatafan tribes among others and went to Abu Sufyan and others of the chiefs of Quraysh to call them to wage war against the Muslims who were struck with panic when news of the huge coalition of almost all tribes of the Arabian Peninsula (enemies & allies alike) was preparing to attack Medina. The Prophet consulted with Salman the Persian, and decided to dig a trench in preparation. All Muslims were put at task, including the Prophet who worked with his hands alongside his companions lifting the dirt, encouraging the Muslim workers, and exhorting everyone to multiply his effort. The women and children were removed to the interior and placed within fortified walls. The battle known as Battle of the Trench/Ditch/Confederates or al-Khandaq/Ahzab started. When the Confederate armies showed up, the Muslims were troubled by their large number and retreated behind their trench for 20 days only exchanging stones and arrows with the enemy. The Muslims survived on their food reserves as well as the continuous supply of crops from the Jews of Banu Qurayzah who had stayed truthful to their covenant with Muhammad, within Medina. The difficulty of overcoming the innovative trench fighting was such that the enemy forces had no choice but to cut the Muslim food supply which was mainly coming from the Banu Qurayzah, for a general withdrawal would render such a future coalition almost impossible. Huyayy ibn Akhtab, the Jewish leader among the pagan forces decided to go find Ka'b, chief of the Banu Qurayzah and convince him of reversing against the Muslims. At first Ka'b would not receive him, knowing well that treason might bring some advantages in case of Muslim defeat but that it would provide the cause for extermination in case of Muslim victory. Huyayy appeased his fears by describing the extent of the pagan forces and their desire to exterminate the Muslims once and for all but Ka'b still hesitated, remembering Muhammad's loyalty to his covenant. After many talks, and a pledge from Huyayy that he would stand by his brothers of Banu Qurayzah in case of defeat followed by sanctions, Ka'b's Jewish feeling stirred, moving him to yield to Huyayy, to accept his demands, to repudiate his covenant with Muhammad and the Muslims, and to join the ranks of their pagan enemies. This betrayal shook the Prophet greatly as well as the rest of the Muslims, so he sent his companion Sa'd ibn Mu'adh, leader of the Aws and close ally to Banu Qurayzah to confirm the bad news, which he did. With the last Jews joining the pagan ranks, cutting the food supply and threatening the Muslims from within, the pagan forces had their moral uplifted. They prepared an invasion from 3 fronts and it was with reference to this deployment of enemy forces that the Quran said: 33:10-13"When they came upon you from above you and from below you, and when the eyes turned dull, and the hearts rose up to the throats, and you began to think diverse thoughts of Allah. There the believers were tried and they were shaken with severe shaking. And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was a disease began to say: Allah and His Messenger did not promise us (victory) but only to deceive.And when a party of them said: O people of Yathrib! There is no place to stand for you (here), therefore go back; and a party of them asked permission of the prophet, saying. Surely our houses are exposed; and they were not exposed; they only desired to fly away". They managed to find a breach in the narrowest side of the trench and engulfed their men inside but all got slain by Imam Ali and his group. And victory came a little later, with the help of God Who turned the weather against the enemy, with strong winds carrying small rocks instinguishing all night fires, blowing away their tents and weapons, forced the polytheists to shield themselves and finally retreat. 33:9"O you who believe! call to mind the favor of Allah to you when there came down upon you hosts, so We sent against them a strong wind and hosts, that you saw not, and Allah is Seeing what you do". The Muslims went back next morning to Medina, joyful of their victory against the rejecters of faith and immediately besieged the traitors of Bani Qurayza for 25 days without fighting until they surrendered and asked to be judged by the Awsite Sa'd ibn Mu'adh, who was their former protector. They thought that because of their former alliance with him, he would show leniency so they promised to willingly accept his decision. He judged them according to their law, which is death of all fighting men, enslavement of women and children and confiscation of their livestock (Deut20:10-15). He imposed this judgment just before the wound which he had suffered in his arm suddenly opened and the blood continued to gush out until he died. All fighting men were slain, the women and children taken as captives, their lands distributed to the Muslims immigrating to Medina and their wealth shared among all Muslims with one-fifth for public purposes. Now if you want some info on how the Muslims treated the captives and prisoners of wars I can give you some explanations, but for a start it has nothing to do with Moses' alleged genocide of entire nations or Psalms' dashing of infants against rocks. Like I said the barbarism of christians and jewish history has no parallel in Islamic history.
