Saddam lives like a king, is served two gourmet meals a day

Saddam lives like a king, is served two gourmet meals a day

IOL | November 23 2004

Kuwait City - Saddam Hussein is living like a king in American military custody in Iraq, an adviser to the Iraqi interim prime minister told a Kuwaiti daily in an interview published on Tuesday.

George Sada, an air force officer under Saddam, told the independent Al-Qabas daily that the former Iraqi dictator's house "was centrally air conditioned" and he was reading newspapers and watching television.

"They prepare two kinds of food for him every day, Eastern and Western, and he eats what he chooses," Sada said in the interview conducted a week ago in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. It is being published in a series.

Saddam's menu includes Qouzi, which is sheep stuffed with rice, and Masqouf, Iraqi-style grilled fish, Sada said, adding that the former dictator is living "like any king, better than the way he lived at the Republican Palace".

Sada declined to elaborate on where Saddam was being held, but he has been in US custody since December 13 when he was captured by American troops in a hole near his hometown of Tikrit. He is believed to be detained in an American-guarded facility near Baghdad International Airport.

Saddam faces trial on at least seven charges, including killing rival politicians, gassing the Kurds in 1988, invading Kuwait in 1990 and suppressing Kurdish and Shiite uprisings in 1991. No date for the tribunal has been announced.

Sada said Saddam's top aides in US detention were also living very well.

Although the Iraqi interim government has taken legal custody of Saddam and his aides, US forces have been holding them until Iraqis are ready to take control.

Sada told Al-Qabas that the Americans have "said they were going to live like this until they are delivered to you (the Iraqis), then you can do what you want with them".

If Saddam, who was toppled in April 2003 by a US-led coalition, "was handed to Iraqis, they would have eaten him (alive) a long time ago," he added. - Sapa-AP

If Saddam, who was toppled in April 2003 by a US-led coalition, "was handed to Iraqis, they would have eaten him (alive) a long time ago," he added

They're way too busy eating alive the people who overthrew him.

erm, correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't the best thing about being a king that you can do whatever you want and when you tell people what to do they do it, and come and go as you please whenever you feel like it?

I doubt that saddam is living like a king.

I bet those so-called gourmet meals are served on army mess hall trays.

I bet he gets interrogated pretty often too.

Not likely. What would we want to know that the CIA didn't already about Iraq or Saddam? We've been helping him out and funding him for years. We helped him get into power. We knew what he was doing all along because we helped him do it.

That is totally ridiculous. But from such a source I'm not surprised.

I wonder what you guys will say when he has been executed.

I'd say it should have been done 20 years ago when Bush and Reagan were busy sucking Saddams pecker.

I'm sure your sources tell you that Saddam killed approximately 300 people in his career, while Bush has in fact killed well over a billion Iraqis.

I agree. Saddam should have been removed years ago but 20? Seems a little unrealistic considering the state of the Middle East at the time.

TERRORISM from the Quran and hadiths:

Bukhari:V4B52N220 ?Allah?s Apostle said, ?I have been made victorious with terror.??
Qur?an 8:12 ?I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.?
Qur?an 8:57 ?If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.?
Ishaq:326 ?If you come upon them, deal so forcibly as to terrify those who would follow, that they may be warned. Make a severe example of them by terrorizing Allah?s enemies.?
Qur?an 8:67 ?It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughtered in the land.?
Ishaq:588 ?When the Apostle descends on your land none of your people will be left when he leaves.?
Tabari IX:42 ?We have been dealt a situation from which there is no escape. You have seen what Muhammad has done. Arabs have submitted to him and we do not have the strength to fight. You know that no herd is safe from him. And no one even dares go outside for fear of being terrorized.?
Ishaq:326 ?Allah said, ?No Prophet before Muhammad took booty from his enemy nor prisoners for ransom.? Muhammad said, ?I was made victorious with terror. The earth was made a place for me to clean. I was given the most powerful words. Booty was made lawful for me. I was given the power to intercede. These five privileges were awarded to no prophet before me.??
Ishaq:327 ?Allah said, ?A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.??
Qur?an 7:3 ?Little do you remember My warning. How many towns have We destroyed as a raid by night? Our punishment took them suddenly while they slept for their afternoon rest. Our terror came to them; Our punishment overtook them.?
Ishaq:510 ?When the Apostle looked down on Khaybar he told his Companions, ?O Allah, Lord of the Devils and what into error they throw, and Lord of the winds and what they winnow, we ask Thee for the booty of this town and its people. Forward in the name of Allah.? He used to say this of every town he raided.?
Bukhari:V5B59N512 ?The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer [Prayer of Fear] near Khaybar when it was still dark. He said, ?Allahu-Akbar!? [Allah is Greatest] Khaybar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a hostile nation to fight, then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.? Then the inhabitants came out running on their roads. The Prophet had their men killed; their children and woman were taken as captives.?
Bukhari:V9B87N127 ?The Prophet said, ?I have been given the keys of eloquent speech and given victory with terror.??
Ishaq:517 ?Khaybar was stormed by the Apostle?s squadron, fully armed, powerful and strong. It brought certain humiliation with Muslim men in its midst. We attacked and they met their doom. Muhammad conquered the Jews in fighting that day as they opened their eyes to our dust.?
Tabari VIII:116/Ishaq:511 ?So Muhammad began seizing their herds and their property bit by bit. He conquered home by home. The Messenger took some people captive, including Safiyah and her two cousins. The Prophet chose Safiyah for himself.?
Bukhari:V5B59N512 ?The Prophet had their men killed, their children and woman taken captive.?
Tabari VIII:129 ?After the Messenger had finished with the Khaybar Jews, Allah cast terror into the hearts of the Jews in Fadak when they received news of what Allah had brought upon Khaybar. Fadak became the exclusive property of Allah?s Messenger.?
Tabari VIII:133 ?The raiding party went to Tha?labah. One of Muhammad?s slaves, said, ?Prophet, I know where Tha?labah can be taken by surprise.? So Muhammad sent him with 130 men. They raided the town and drove off camels and sheep, bringing them back to Medina.?
Tabari VIII:138 ?Muhammad carried arms, helmets, and spears. He led a hundred horses, appointing Bahir to be in charge of the weapons and Maslamah to be in charge of the horses. When the Quraysh received word of this, it frightened them.?
Qur?an 33:26 ?Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.?
Qur?an 59:2 ?It was Allah who drove the [Jewish] People of the Book from their homes and into exile. They refused to believe and imagined that their strongholds would protect them against Allah. But Allah came at them from where they did not suspect, and filled their hearts with terror. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson, O men who have eyes. This is My warning?they shall taste the torment of Fire.?
Qur?an 33:60 ?Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbors for any length of time. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy?a fierce slaughter?murdered, a horrible murdering.?
Tabari VIII:143 ?In this year a twenty-four man raiding party led by Shuja went to the Banu Amir. He launched a raid on them and took camels and sheep. The shares of booty came to fifteen camels for each man. Also a raid led by Amr went to Dhat. He set out with fifteen men. He encountered a large force whom he summoned to Islam. They refused to respond so he killed all of them.?
Bukhari:V4B52N256 ?The Prophet passed by and was asked whether it was permissible to attack infidels at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, ?Their women and children are from them.??
Tabari IX:20 ?The captives of Hunayn, along with their possessions, were brought to the Messenger. He ordered that their captives, animals, and their possessions be taken to Ji?ranah and held there in custody.?
Ishaq:576 ?Allah and His servant overwhelmed every coward. Allah honored us and made our religion victorious. We were glorified and destroyed them all. Allah humiliated them in the worship of Satan. By what our Apostle recites from the Book and by our swift horses, I liked the punishment the infidels received. Killing them was sweeter than drink. We galloped among them panting for the spoil. With our loud-voiced army, the Apostle?s squadron advanced into the fray.?
Ishaq:580 ?Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter. By us Allah?s religion is undeniably strong. You would think when our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons are among them. The day we trod down the unbelievers there was no deviation or turning from the Apostle?s order. During the battle the people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior?s blow. Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying alas over her mutilated husband. ?Tis Allah, not man we seek to please.?
Tabari IX:122 ?Muhammad sent Uyaynah to raid The Banu Anbar. They killed some people and took others captive. Asma was one of the women taken prisoner.?
Tabari IX:123 ?Muhammad sent an expedition to Ghalib and to the land of the Banu Murrah. The raid on Amr and Abi was sent to the valley of Idam. Another by Aslami was sent to Ghabah. And Abd al-Rahman was ordered by the Messenger to lead an army to the seashore.?
Tabari IX:69 ?He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for those who disbelieve, we will fight them forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing them is a small matter to us.?
Bukhari:V5B59N516 ?When Allah?s Apostle fought or raided people we raised our voices saying, ?Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.??
Tabari VII:10 ?In Ramadhan, seven months after the Hijrah, Muhammad entrusted a white war banner to Hamzah with the command of thirty Emigrants. Their aim was to intercept a Quraysh caravan.?
Ishaq:281 ?The Raid on Waddan was the first Maghazi [invasion]. The Expedition of Harith was second. They encountered a large number of Quraysh in the Hijaz. Abu Bakr composed a poem about the raid: ?When we called them to the truth they turned their backs and howled like bitches. Allah?s punishment on them will not tarry. I swear by the Lord of Camels [Allah?] that I am no perjurer. A valiant band will descend upon the Quraysh which will leave women husbandless. It will leave men dead, with vultures wheeling round. It will not spare the infidels.??
Ishaq:285 ?Then the Apostle went raiding in the month of Rabi u?l-Awwal making for the Quraysh. Then he raided the Quraysh by way of Dinar.? Tabari VII:11 ?In this year the Messenger entrusted to Sa?d a white war banner for the expedition to Kharrar. Sa?d said, ?I set out on foot at the head of twenty men. We used to lie hidden by day and march at night, until we reached Kharrar on the fifth morning. The caravan had arrived in town a day before. There were sixty men with it.? Tabari VII:11 ?The Messenger of Allah went out on a raid as far as Waddan, searching for Quraysh.?
Tabari VII:15 ?Expeditions Led by Allah?s Messenger: In this year, according to all Sira writers, the Messenger personally led the Ghazwa of Alwa. [A Ghazwa is an Islamic Invasion in Allah?s Cause consisting of an army unit led by the Prophet himself.] He left Sa?d in command of Medina. On this raid his banner was carried by Hamzah. He stayed out for fifteen days and then returned to Medina. The Messenger went on a Ghazwa at the head of two hundred of his companions in October, 623 and reached Buwat. His intention was to intercept a Quraysh caravan with a hundred men and twenty-five hundred camels.?
Ishaq:286 ?Meanwhile the Apostle sent Sa?d on the raid of Abu Waqqas. The Prophet only stayed a few nights in Medina before raiding Ushayra and then Kurz.?
Bukhari:V5B57N51 ?The Apostle said, ?Tomorrow I will give the flag to a man whose leadership Allah will use to grant a Muslim victory.?
Bukhari:V5B59N569 ?I fought in seven Ghazwat battles along with the Prophet and fought in nine Maghazi raids in armies dispatched by the Prophet.?
Bukhari:V5B57N74 ?I heard Sa?d saying, ?I was the first Arab to shoot an arrow in Allah?s Cause.??
Bukhari:V5B59N401 ?Allah?s Wrath became severe on anyone the Prophet killed in Allah?s Cause.?
Bukhari:V5B59N456 ?Muhammad led the Fear Prayer [Allahu Akbar!] with one batch of his army while the other (batch) faced the enemy.?
Bukhari:V5B59N440 ?Allah?s Apostle used to say, ?None has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone because He honored His Warriors and made His Messenger victorious. He defeated the clans; so there is nothing left.??
Ishaq:287 ?The Muslim raiders consulted one another concerning them. One of the Muslims said, ?By Allah, if we leave these people alone, they will get into the sacred territory and will be safely out of our reach. If we kill them we will have killed in the sacred month.?? Tabari VII:19 ?They hesitated and were afraid to advance, but then they plucked up courage and agreed to kill as many as they could and to seize what they had with them. Waqid shot an arrow at Amr and killed him. Uthman and al-Hakam surrendered. Then Waqid and his companions took the caravan and the captives back to Allah?s Apostle in Medina. This was the first booty taken by the Companions of Muhammad.?
Ishaq:289 ?Our lances drank of Amr?s blood and lit the flame of war.? Tabari VII:20/Ishaq:287 ?Abd Allah told his Companions, ?A fifth of the booty we have taken belongs to the Apostle.? This was before Allah made surrendering a fifth of the booty taken a requirement.?
Tabari VII:20/Ishaq:288 ?The Quraysh said, ?Muhammad and his Companions have violated the sacred month, shed blood, seized property, and taken men captive.? The polytheists spread lying slander concerning him, saying, ?Muhammad claims that he is following obedience to Allah, yet he is the first to violate the holy month and to kill our people.??
Ishaq:288 ?When the Qur?an passage concerning this matter was revealed, and Allah relieved Muslims from their fear and anxiety, Muhammad took possession of the caravan and prisoners. The Quraysh sent him a ransom and the Prophet released the prisoners on payment. When the Qur?an authorization came down to Muhammad, Abd Allah and his Companions were relieved and they became anxious for an additional reward. They said, ?Will this raid be counted as part of the reward promised to Muslim combatants?? So Allah sent down this Qur?an: ?Those who believe and have fought in Allah?s Cause may receive Allah?s mercy.? Allah made the booty permissible. He divided the loot, awarding four-fifths to the men He had allowed to take it. He gave one-fifth to His Apostle.?
Ishaq:288 ?Allah divided the booty stolen from the first caravan after he made spoils permissible. He gave four-fifths to those He had allowed to take it and one-fifth to His Apostle.? Tabari VII:29/Ishaq:289 ?The Apostle heard that Abu Sufyan [a Meccan merchant] was coming from Syria with a large caravan containing their money and their merchandise. He was accompanied by only thirty men.? Ishaq:289 ?Muhammad summoned the Muslims and said, ?This is the Quraysh caravan containing their property. Go out and attack it. Perhaps Allah will give it to us as prey.?
Tabari VII:29 ?Abu Sufyan and the horsemen of the Quraysh were returning from Syria following the coastal road. When Allah?s Apostle heard about them he called his companions together and told them of the wealth they had with them and the fewness of their numbers. The Muslims set out with no other object than Sufyan and the men with him. They did not think that this raid would be anything other than easy booty.?
Bukhari:V5B59N702 ?Allah did not admonish anyone who had not participated in the Ghazwa [raid] of Badr, for in fact, Allah?s Apostle had only gone out in search of the Quraysh caravan so that he could rob it. But Allah arranged for the Muslims and their enemy to meet by surprise. I was at the Aqaba pledge with Allah?s Apostle when we gave our lives in submission, but the Badr battle is more popular amongst the people. I was never stronger or wealthier than I was when I followed the Prophet on a Ghazwa.??
Tabari VII:29 ?They did not suppose that there would be a great battle. Concerning this Allah revealed a Qur?an: Qur?an 8:7 ?Behold! Allah promised you that one of the two parties would be yours. You wished for the unarmed one, but Allah willed to justify His truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the unbelievers.??
Tabari VII:29 ?When Abu Sufyan heard that Muhammad?s Companions were on their way to intercept his caravan, he sent a message to the Quraysh. ?Muhammad is going to attack our caravan, so protect your merchandise.? When the Quraysh heard this, the people of Mecca hastened to defend their property and protect their men as they were told Muhammad was lying in wait for them.? Ishaq:290 ?Some Meccans got up to circumambulate the Ka?aba?. Sitting around the mosque, they wondered why they had allowed this evil rascal to attack their men.?
Ishaq:292 ?Setting out in Ramadhan, Muhammad was preceded by two black flags. His companions had seventy camels.? Tabari VII:38 ?I have been informed by authorities that Muhammad set out on 3 Ramadhan at the head of 310 of his companions. The war banner of the Messenger was carried by Ali. The banner of the Ansar was carried by Sa?d.?
Ishaq:293/Tabari VII:30 ?The prophet marched forward and spent the night near Badr with his Companions. While the Prophet was standing in prayer [asking Allah to help him steal] some Quraysh water-carriers came to the well. Among these was a black slave. Muhammad?s men seized him and brought him to the Messenger?s bivouac. They ordered him to salute Allah?s Apostle. Then they questioned him about Abu Sufyan. When the slave began to tell them about the protecting force, it was unwelcome news, for the only object of their raid was the caravan.? Tabari VII:30 ?Meanwhile the Prophet was praying, bowing and prostrating himself, and also seeing and hearing the treatment of the slave. They beat him severely and continued to interrogate him but they found that he had no knowledge of what they were looking for.?
Ishaq:294 ?The Apostle was afraid the Ansar would not feel obliged to help him fight without the enemy being the aggressor and attacking in Medina. Sa?d said, ?We hear and obey. We are experienced in war, trustworthy in combat. Allah will let us show you something that will bring you joy. The Apostle was delighted at Sa?d?s words which greatly encouraged him. Muhammad shouted, ?It is as if I see the enemy lying prostrate.??
Tabari VII:32 ?When the Quraysh advanced, Muhammad threw dust in the direction of their faces, and Allah put them to flight.? The Meccan [merchant] force and the Prophet?s [pirates] met and Allah gave victory to His Messenger, shamed the unbelievers, and satisfied the Muslims? thirst for revenge.? Ishaq:297 ?When the Apostle saw them he cried, ?Allah, they called me a liar. Destroy them this morning.??
Bukhari:V5B59N330/Ishaq:300 ?Here is Gabriel holding the rein of a horse and leading the charge. He is equipped with his weapons and ready for the battle. There is dust upon his front teeth.? Bukhari:V5B59N327 ?Gabriel came to the Prophet and said, ?How do you view the warriors of Badr?? The Prophet said, ?I see the fighters as the best Muslims.? On that, Gabriel said, ?And so are the Angels who are participating in the Badr battle.??
Tabari VII:55 ?Mihaja, the mawla [slave] of Umar [the future Caliph] was struck by an arrow and killed. He was the first Muslim to die.?
Tabari VII:55 ?Allah?s Messenger went out to his men and incited them to fight. He promised, ?Every man may keep all the booty he takes.? Then Muhammad said, ?By Allah, if any man fights today and is killed fighting aggressively, going forward and not retreating, Allah will cause him to enter Paradise.? Umayr, who was holding some dates in his hand and eating them, said, ?Fine, fine. This is excellent! Nothing stands between me and my entering Paradise except to be killed by these people!? He threw down the dates, seized his sword, and fought until he was slain.?
Tabari VII:56 ??Messenger of Allah, what makes the Lord laugh with joy at his servant?? He replied, ?When he plunges his hand into the midst of an enemy without armor.? So Auf took off the coat of mail he was wearing and threw it away. Then he took his sword and fought the enemy until he was killed.?
Ishaq:301 ?Muhammad picked up a handful of pebbles and faced the Quraysh. He shouted, ?May their faces be deformed!? He threw the pebbles at them and ordered his companions to attack. The foe was routed. Allah killed Quraysh chiefs and caused many of their nobles to be taken captive. While the Muslims were taking prisoners, the Messenger was in his hut.?
Bukhari:V5B59N290 ?The Prophet said, ?The believers who failed to join the Ghazwa of Badr and those who took part in it are not equal in reward.?
Bukhari:V5B59N333 ?Az-Zubair said, ?I attacked him with my spear and pierced his eye. I put my foot over his body to pull the weapon out, but even then I had to use great force. Later on Allah?s Apostle asked me for that spear and I gave it to him.??
Ishaq:301 ?As the Muslims were laying their hands on as many prisoners as they could catch, the Prophet, saw disapproval in the face of Sa?d. He said, ?Why are you upset by the taking of captives?? Sa?d replied, ?This was the first defeat inflicted by Allah on the infidels. Slaughtering the prisoners would have been more pleasing to me than sparing them.??
Tabari VII:59 ?On the day of Badr I passed Umayyah as he was standing with his son Ali, holding his hand. I had with me some coats of mail which I had taken as plunder. Umayyah said, ?Abd al-Ilah, would you like to take me as a prisoner? I will be more valuable to you as a captive to be ransomed than the coats of mail that you are carrying.? I said, ?Yes. Come here then.? I flung away the armor and bound Umayyah and his son Ali, taking them with me. Muslims encircled us. Then they restrained us physically. One of the Muslims drew his sword and struck Ali in the leg, severing it so that he fell down. Umayyah gave a scream the like of which I have never heard. I said, ?Save yourself, for there is no escape for your son. By Allah, I cannot save him from these men.? Then the Muslims hacked Ali to pieces. Abd al-Rahman used to say, ?May Allah have mercy on Bial [a slave turned Muslim marauder]! I lost my coats of mail, and he deprived me of my captives.??
Bukhari:V5B59N297 ?The Prophet faced the Ka?aba and invoked evil on the Quraysh people.?
Bukhari: V5B59N397 ?Allah?s Apostle raised his head after bowing the first Rak?a of the morning prayer. He said, ?O Allah! Curse so-and-so and so-and-so.? After he had invoked evil upon them, Allah revealed: ?Your Lord will send thousands of angels riding upon chargers sweeping down as a form of good tidings to reassure you that victory comes from Him. He will cut off parts of the unbelievers, overthrow them, and turn them back in frustration. For Allah is forgiving and kind.?? [3:124]
Ishaq:303 ?A cousin and I mounted a hill from which we could overlook Badr and see who would be defeated, so that we could join in the plundering afterwards. I was pursuing one of the Meccan polytheists in order to smite him, when his head suddenly fell off before my sword touched him. Then I knew that someone other than I had killed him.?
Tabari VII:61 ?When the Prophet had finished with his enemy, he gave orders that Abu Jahl should be found among the dead. He said, ?O Allah, do not let him escape!? The first man who encountered Abu Jahl yelled out and I made him my mark. When he was within my reach, I attacked him and struck him a blow which severed his foot and half his leg. By Allah, when it flew off I could only compare it to a date-stone which flies out of a crusher when it is struck. Then his son hit me on the shoulder and cut off my arm. It dangled at my side from a piece of skin. The fighting prevented me from reaching him after that. I fought the whole day, dragging my arm behind me. When it began to hurt me, I put my foot on it and stood until I pulled it off.?? Ishaq:304 ?Abd Allah bin Mas?ud said, ?I found Abu Jahl in the throws of death. I put my foot on his neck because he had grabbed me once at Mecca and had hurt me. Then I said, Has Allah disgraced you and put you to shame, O enemy of Allah?? ?In what way has he disgraced me?? he asked. ?Am I anything more important than a man whom you have killed??? Bukhari:V5B59N298 ?Abu Jahl said, ?You should not be proud that you have killed me.??
Ishaq:304/Tabari VII:62 ?I cut off Abu Jahl?s head and brought it to the Messenger. ?O Allah?s Prophet, this is the head of the enemy of Allah.? Muhammad said, ?Praise be to Allah.??
Ishaq:305 ?Ukkasha fought until he broke his sword. He came to the Apostle who gave him a wooden cudgel telling him to fight with that. He brandished it and it became a brilliant weapon. Allah gave him victory while he wielded it. He took that weapon with him to every raid he fought with Allah?s Apostle until he was killed in the rebellion. These were his dying words: ?What do you think about when you kill people? Are these not men just because they are not Muslims???
Ishaq:315 ?It was so criminal, men could hardly imagine it. Muhammad was ennobled because of the bloody fighting. I swear we shall never lack soldiers, nor army leaders. Driving before us infidels until we subdue them with a halter above their noses and a branding iron. We will drive them to the ends of the earth. We will pursue them on horse and on foot. We will never deviate from fighting in our cause. We will bring upon the infidels the fate of the Ad and Jurhum. Any people that disobey Muhammad will pay for it. If you do not surrender to Islam, then you will live to regret it. You will be shamed in Hell, forced to wear a garment of molten pitch forever!?
Ishaq:310 ?A Meccan said, ?As soon as we were confronted by the raiding party, we turned our backs and they started killing and capturing us at their pleasure. Some of our men turned tail humiliated. Allah smote some of us with pustules from which we died.?? Ishaq:311 ?When the Quraysh began to bewail their dead, consumed in sorrow, one said, ?Do not do this for Muhammad and his companions will rejoice over our misfortune.??
Ishaq:340 ?Surely Badr was one of the world?s great wonders. The roads to death are plain to see. Disobedience causes a people to perish. They became death?s pawns. We had sought their caravan, nothing else. But they came to us and there was no way out. So we thrust our shafts and swung our swords severing their heads. Our swords glittered as they killed. The banner of error was held by Satan. He betrayed the evil ones, those prone to treachery. He led them to death crying, ?Fear Allah. He is invincible!? On that day a thousand spirits were mustered on excited white stallions. Allah?s army fought with us. Under our banner, Gabriel attacked and killed them.?
Ishaq:341 ?Allah favored His Apostle and humiliated the unbelievers. They were put to shame in captivity and death. The Apostle?s victory was glorious. Its message is plain for all to see. The Lord brought repeated calamities upon the pagans, bringing them under the Apostle?s power. Allah?s angry army smote them with their trusty swords. Many a lusty youngster left the enemy lying prone. Their women wept with burning throats for the dead were lying everywhere. But now they are all in Hell.?
Ishaq:342 ?I wonder at foolish men like these who sing frivolously and vainly of the slain at Badr. This was nothing more than an impious and odious crime. Men fought against their brothers, fathers, and sons. Any with discernment and understanding recognize the wrong that was done here.?
Ishaq:344 ?I wonder at Allah?s deed. None can defeat Him. Evil ever leads to death. We unsheathed our swords and testified to the unity of Allah, and we proved that His Apostle brought truth. We smote them and they scattered. The impious met death. They became fuel for Hell. All who aren?t Muslims must go there. It will consume them while the Stoker [Allah] increases the heat. They had called Allah?s Apostle a liar. They claimed, ?You are nothing but a sorcerer.? So Allah destroyed them.?
Ishaq:348 ?They retreated in all directions. They rejected the Qur?an and called Muhammad a liar. But Allah cursed them to make his religion and Apostle victorious. They lay still in death. Their throats were severed. Their foreheads embraced the dust. Their nostrils were defiled with filth. Many a noble, generous man we slew this day. We left them as meat for the hyenas. And later, they shall burn in the fires of Hell.?
Ishaq:349 ?The battle will tell the world about us. Distant men will heed our warning. The infidels may cut off my leg, yet I am a Muslim. I will exchange my life for one with virgins fashioned like the most beautiful statues.?
Ishaq:357 ?Their leaders were left prostrate. Their heads were sliced off like melons. Many an adversary have I left on the ground to rise in pain, broken and plucked. When the battle was joined I dealt them a vicious blow. Their arteries cried aloud, their blood flowed.?
Ishaq:308 ?Muhammad halted on a sandhill and divided the booty Allah had given him. They congratulated him on the victory Allah had granted. But one of the warriors replied, ?What are you congratulating us about? We only met some bald old women like the sacrificial camels who are hobbled, and we slaughtered them!? The Apostle smiled because he knew that description fit .?
Tabari VII:81 ?The next day I went to the Prophet. He was sitting with Abu Bakr, and they were weeping. I said, ?O Messenger of Allah, tell me, what has made you weep? If I find cause to weep, I will weep with you, and if not, I will pretend to weep because you are weeping.? The Prophet said, ?It is because of the taking of ransoms. It was laid before me that I should punish them instead.? Allah revealed: ?It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land.? After that Allah made booty lawful for them.?
Tabari VII:98 ?The Messenger ordered Zayd [the prophet?s former slave turned adoptive son] out on a raid in which he captured a Quraysh caravan led by Abu Sufyan at a watering place in Najd.? A number of their merchants set out with a large amount of silver since this was the main part of their merchandise. They hired a man to guide them along this route. Zayd captured the caravan and its goods but was unable to capture the men. He brought the caravan to the Prophet.? [If this isn?t piracy and terror the words need to be redefined.]
Tabari VII:98 ?The reason for this expedition was the Quraysh said, ?Muhammad has damaged our trade, and sits astride our road. If we stay in Mecca we will consume our capital.? ?The news of the caravan reached the Prophet, as did the information that it contained much wealth and silver vessels. Zayd therefore intercepted it and made himself master of their caravan. The fifth (khums) was twenty thousand dirhams; Allah?s Apostle took it and divided the other four fifths among the members of the raiding party. Furat was taken captive. They said to him. ?If you accept Islam the Messenger will not kill you.??
Qur?an 3:150 ?Soon We shall strike terror into the hearts of the Infidels, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be in the Fire!?
Ishaq:395 ?Muslims, if you listen to the unbelievers you will retreat from the enemy and become losers. Ask Allah for victory and do not retreat, withdrawing from His religion. ?We will terrorize those who disbelieve. In that way I will help you against them.??
Qur?an 33:9 ?O ye who believe! Remember the Grace of Allah, on you, when there came down an army. But We sent against them a hurricane and forces that ye saw not. Behold! They came on you from above you and from below you, and behold, the eyes became dim and the hearts gaped up to the throats, stupefied with terror, and ye imagined various vain thoughts about Allah!?
Ishaq:461 ?Muhammad besieged them for twenty-five nights. When the siege became too severe for them, Allah terrorized them. Then they were told to submit.?

Your link doesn't work.

What do you mean by "arms"? If Russia supplied 500 rifles while the US supplied material to make biological and chemical weapons and rocket launchers who is the more guilty?
