    It was the doing of the Meccans; they were themselves to blame.
    It was no fault of Muhammad; he had been  peaceful.

      Yes, it was the fault of the Meccans for not accepting Islam. Muhammad simply "fixed" that fault and had them slaughtered.

        Hi friend (Q)

        You mean the Meccans, 10,000 of them well armed were wise enough to travel some hundred miles to attack Medina 3,000 of them; so that they get slaughtered by Muhammad.

        Thanks

          Yes, peacefully slaughtered, if you so wish to imagine it that way.

            Hi friend (Q)

            If Muhammad had been interested in slaughtering them; he would have attacked Meccans at Mecca. Don't you get it, wise-man.

              Oh I see, it was a toss up between having a BBQ and going out and slaughtering Muhammad and his followers?



              And, I'm Donald Duck.

          I would imagine that after travelling some hndred miles, they would have been tired and hungry, and therefore at somewhat of a disadvantage. Remember Tescos hadn't been invented back then.

            Hi friend Disappearinghead

            The Meccans attacked and besieged Medina; they must have calculated well for the attack, they were outnumbered more than three times of the Medina people. It were the Medina people who were in fact tired due to digging of the long Trench with primitive tools.

            Sorry, please improve your guesswork.

      Oh I could give you an account of one of the many battles of the English Civil War, but I guess that would mean nothing to you either. What's the point you are trying to make here?
