Mohammed’s wars

Was Mohammed only waging war or Jihad as Muslims want to call it only to defend himself against the bad Jews and Christians who attacked him?

From Sahih Muslim, Book Fadael AL Sahaba. Chapter Fadael ALi Bin Abi Taleb. (deliverd By Abu Huraira)

the prophet said in the day of Khybar i will give this flag to a man who loves Allah and his messenger, then the messenger called on Ali Bin Abi Talib and gave him the flag, he then told Ali walk and do not look back until Allah opens up for you. Ali walked up a bit and then stopped he didn’t look back, but he screamed for what will i fight those prophet O Messenger of Allah, the Prophet then said fight them until they acknowledge that there is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet. if they did they protected their blood and their money from me but for the right of Allah.

Arabic Text.

” صحيح مسلم ” عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم دعا عليا يوم خيبر
عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال يوم خيبر لأعطين هذه الراية رجلا يحب الله ورسوله يفتح الله على يديه قال عمر رضي الله عنه: ما أحببت الإمارة إلا يومئذ فتساورت لها رجاء أن أدعى لها فدعا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه فأعطاه إياها وقال: امش ولا تلتفت حتى يفتح الله عليك فسار على شيئا ثم وقف ولم يلتفت فصرخ: يا رسول الله على ماذا أقاتل الناس ؟ قال: قاتلهم حتى يشهدوا أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله فإذا فعلوا ذلك فقد منعوا منك دماءهم وأموالهم إلا بحقها وحسابهم على الله رواه مسلم

This story about Mohammed gives a disturbing image in general because of the following cases.

Case 1. We see clearly that one of Mohammed’s closest friends Ali Bin ABi Taleb had no idea why he should attack the Jews who actually did nothing against Mohammed. He literally asked why would I attack those people!

Case 2. This is a clear act of aggression there is no defense here whatsoever. So when Western Muslim keep telling us Mohammed only acted in self-defense are they deliberately purposefully lying to practice Takiya (legal lying to the enemy) or are they truly unaware of their own history?

Case 3. The claim of western Islam apologists that all the slaughters that Mohammed has committed where sanctioned by Allah as pure self-defense because the Jews and the Christians has broken their treaties with Mohammed. Why is this claim never supported by showing the treaty itself or what was in it? All we read is that they broke a some treaty and Mohammed slaughtered them in return.

Case 4. Did Mohammed only fight wars when he got attacked “legal self defense”? If that claim is true why did most of the battles in Islamic history specially the ones Mohammed lead happen very far away from Mekka and Medina? Aren’t defensive wars supposed to be in on your land as its being invaded and you are defending it? Another good point, were Egypt and Spain attacking Mekka so that Muslims years later would go invade them?
