This morning I was having breakfast watching to NBC’s Morning Joe. They were discussing whether those who authorized torture in American Prisons should be persecuted when Joe asked which is worse torturing prisoners or killing hundreds of thousands of German women and children in World War II; should we go ahead and persecute Ted Roosevelt for killing innocent Germans?
I could not help but to remember that the Prophet Mohammed instructed Muslims to avoid killing women, children and old people when fighting wars. Even trees were protected as well as churches and synagogues. Muslims armies were instructed not to touch these places.
I also could not help but remember that the Prophet Mohammed also forbidden Muslims from torturing their enemies saying only god can do that.
