Hit and be not hit

"My body is my sword. My mind is my blade."

Of course, it is better to win a fight without fighting (war is deception) but circumstances don't always allow for that.

lol, it worked the first time though it didn't display fully. I double clicked on it and clicked copy.

Funny strip. Hard to rebut without falling into the "defender of liberty" trap like Calvin but I'll try... Yes, Islam teaches never to long to meet "the enemy". (Can't remember the Hadith exactly?) But at the same time Islam encourages strength. To be strong and forgiving is the challenge. Verse 2:216 I think is relevant. Fighting (i.e. war) should be disliked. I'll end there before I contradict myself, assuming I haven't already!

"The Holy Prophet was the most patient among men and the most forgiving inspite of his having power to take retaliation."

"In spite of the lofty position of the Prophet, he was the most humble and modest."
