During the seventh century, Muhammad, the founder of Islam, and his Muslim forces butchered Jewish tribes in Yathrib [now Medina]. One of them was called Banu Qurayza. When it came to the Banu Qurayza tribe, the men were put into separate courts from the women and children. The judge was Saad Ibn Mua’dh, who was from the Awes, which was a tribe that was allied to the Banu Qurayza. Mua’dh ruled that the men would be barbarically executed, the women and children sold as slaves and that the possessions would be divided among the Muslims. Muhammad supported that judgement and carried it out. Many Muslims and politically correct liberals who believe that any criticism of Muhammad makes that person a bigot, racist and/or an Islamo-phobe have tried to all they can to justify this massacre. We are told that Banu Qurayza collaborated with the Quraysh tribe, the tribe that Muhammad fought. However, that claim is untrue. Banu Qurayza didn’t help the Quraysh tribe in any way. What happened to the Banu Qurayza tribe was because they didn’t accept Islam nor did they believe that Muhammad was the prophet. In other words, it was for having the wrong beliefs and holding the wrong religion. The Banu Qurayza tribe offered to surrender when they were besieged. What Muhammad did to the Banu Qurayza tribe has no moral standings whatsoever in modern standards, no matter what propaganda you hear from the politically correct liberals or anyone else who seeks to stand Muhammad up above criticism. They seek to portray the Banu Qurayza to as treacherous and to demonize that Jewish tribe.

Now, we have the State of Israel in the same position as the Banu Qurayza tribe. Since birth, Israel dealt with existential threats all around her borders. Israel is Banu Qurayza, except it says no to the existential threats it deals with. Islamists and other Muslim anti-Semities use the massacre of Banu Qurayza and other Jews in that area in order to portray all Jews, not just those victims, as treacherous and to portray them as bad as can be. They chant,”Kaybar,kaybar, al yahoud, jaish Muhammad, al Saioud”, which is,”Kaybar kaybar, O’Jews, the army of Muhammad is returning”. What is means is that they will kill all Jews.
The barbaric massacres of Banu Qurayza and other Jews by Muhammad in the seventh century is used by Muslim anti-Semites including Islamists in order to promote hatred toward the Jews and to promote the genocidal war of extermination against the State of Israel. The reason why there is a war of extermination against Israel is because it’s a non-Arab and non-Muslim state right in the Muslim Middle East. It’s seen as an outpost of Dar al-Harb [House of War] right in Dar al-Islam [House of Islam]. To radical Islam, Dar al-Harb is land under non-Muslim rule while Dar al-Islam is land under Muslim rule. Another reason why Israel is an insult to radical Islam is because it is on the land of Islam [which is seen as land that was even under Islamic rule before like Spain].
Israel is Banu Qurayza. The only difference is that unlike Banu Qurayza, Israel defends itself. Israel is the Banu Qurayza that says no.
So propagandists don’t distort the message of this article, this column is not saying that all Muslims are bad or hold the same views regarding Dar al-Harb, Dar al-Islam or the land of Islam. Yes, there are peaceful interpretations of Islam that’s compatible with democracy, as well as Arab and Muslim reformers who seek peace with Israel, oppose radical Islam and seek to promote democratic reforms in the Arab and Muslim world. But the fact is that other important religious figures like Jesus, Abraham, Moses and other figures don’t stand up above criticism. Judaism, Christianity and other religions [excluding Islam] has no attempt being made to stand them up above criticism. When someone portrays Jesus or Christianity in a way offensive to Evangelical Christians, these same political correct liberals who seek to stand Muhammad and Islam up above criticism are in the front lines in defending the rights of people who portray Jesus and Christianity in that manner. People make fun of Jesus and Christianity all the time. Yet when the Danish newspapers had cartoons making fun of Muhammad, politically correct liberals condemned them as offensive, racist, bigoted, Islamophobic or any other name [never mind the fact that for decades, even today, Arab and Muslim newspapers have anti-Semitic cartoons, at least many of which are similar to the anti-Semitic cartoons in newspapers in Nazi Germany].
The massacre of the innocent Jews in Banu Qurayza and other parts of Arabia by Muhammad and his Muslim force was barbaric and holds no moral standing. Israel is the victim of the same kind of war of extermination. So make no mistake about it. Israel is the Banu Qurayza that says no, for despite all these existential threats, Israel fortunately managed to survive and legally even took more land from their wars of self-defense.
