Invading Muslim militias tell Christians to 'Pay money to Muslims, convert to Islam, leave their homes or be killed'Topics: Understanding Islam
As Robert Spencer points out, these "invading militias are apparently following the teachings of their prophet:
Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, gave this command to his followers:Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war...When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them....If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim 4294)
So are these "invading militias," when they offer Christians these choices of conversion, payment of tribute and subjugation, or death, really Misunderstanding Islam?
