Allah repeats the call for Jihad many times- in fact it is a religious duty that is only excusable if you are too old or sick.
The founder of Islam, Mohammed took this Jihad duty very seriously. He was personally involved in 28 Jihads and planned a total of almost 80.
Even the best Muslim apolgist has to admit that the founder of Islam was directly responsible for killing hundreds of people. The true figure is
almost certainly much, much higher.
Note that neither of the two recent Muslim posters have contested the factual accuracy of my above statement.
They appear not to want to open up that particular can of worms.
They know that I will have a field day using their own Koran and the Hadiths to illustrate the killing carried out by Muhammad in his many Jihads.
All we have is this justification:

OK. Let's look at a selection of what I can prove
(1) Mohammed besieged a tribe of Jews in Medina, and then, after they had surrendered, beheaded the 800 male Jews
of that tribe. The women
and children were sold into slavery
. One of the girls, who had the pleasure of seeing the husband she had recently married being murdered by
Mohammed's men, had the pleasure of spending the first night of her new life as a slave in Mohammed's bed
(2) Muhammad also authorised the murder of a number of poets
(male & female) who had mocked him
. One poet was a mother sleeping with her
young children. The Muslim assassin had to move a child aside before thrusting his dagger into her chest. Another victim was a male poet who was,
according to Muslim sources, over 100 years old. Mohammed then absolved the Islamic murderers of any wrong doing.
(3) Muhammad ordered people to be burnt in their houses for not coming to prayer.
(4) He was also an accomplished caravan raider
and a man who had the propensity to execute prisoners
who had been political opponents in
the past. One such man had fallen foul of Muhammad when Muhammad was in his early days due to being a better story teller than Muhammad,. "Who will
look after my young daughter?" cried the man, moments before he was executed. Muhammad then cursed him.
(5) The Koran is full of quotes of Muhammad ordering Muslims to wage holy war on non Muslims. The passages urging violent Jihad date from when he
was stronger - his time in Medina
and after he had attacked and taken Mecca.
Muhammad's tolerant messages date from when he was weak, when he was a minor preacher in Mecca
before he was invited to move to Medina. No
matter when they date from, the intolerant preaching greatly out numbers the tolerant teaching.
In light of the character and the message of Muhammad as relayed by the Koran and Hadiths, Jihadists of today are both following the spirit and the
letter of Muhammad's teachings.
Luckily, the vast majority of Muslims do not. However, with any significant group of moderate Muslims, there appears always to be an extreme minority
who do follow both the spirit and the letter of Muhammad's teachings.
While all Muslims must take a literal interpretation of the Koran, most don't know or don't care what the Koran says.
Some Muslims, usually young males, however do take a hard-line approach and follow the Wahhabism/Salafism school of Islam
that demands that we
all live out life in accordance with 7th century Islam. Almost all Muslim terrorists come from this Wahhabism/Salafism school
Since 1973, the Saudi government has spent $87 billion to promote Wahhabism in the United States
, Africa, Southeast Asia and Europe.
According to official Saudi information, Saudi funds have been used to build and maintain over 1,500 mosques, 202 colleges 210 Islamic Centers wholly
or partly financed by Saudi Arabia and almost 2,000 schools for educating Muslim children in non-Islamic countries in Europe, North and South America,
Australia and Asia.
Allegations have been made that the funding for the Ground Zero Mosque is coming from Wahhabism sources.
