"Hudaybiyah is a small oasis between Mecca and Medina where Muhammad fought a battle in the early years of Islam. When he saw he was fighting a losing battle, Muhammad signed a strategic 10-year peace agreement with the Quraish tribe who lived in Mecca. Two years later, when his forces were stronger and the Meccans were living securely and off their guard, Muhammad marched into the city and captured it. "
In Islam there is a principle known as Takiya, the right to fake peace when you are weak for the purposes of defeating your enemy when you are stronger. The very basis of their faith makes them un-trustworthy, dis-honorable and basicly weasels. How can there be peace with peoples whose underlying principle is to lie cheat murder and steal?
My point was that Peace in word is not the same as peace in deed. But given this Takiya principle, the 'deed' would also be unreliable.
What options are we left with? Either you're truly on the sideof peace, or you're not.
I advocating a bufferzone like with N. Korea, after of course, we retake Constantinople.
