Myth vs Fact #9

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 3:13 There has already been a sign for you (O Jews) in the two armies that met (in combat i.e. the battle of Badr): One was fighting in the Cause of Allâh, and as for the other (they) were disbelievers. They (the believers) saw them (the disbelievers) with their own eyes twice their number (although they were thrice their number). And Allâh supports with His Victory whom He pleases. Verily, in this is a lesson for those who understand. (See Verse 8:44). (Tafsir At-Tabarî)
Tafsir Threatening the Jews With Defeat and Encouraging Them to Learn a Lesson From the Battle of Badr

Bottom Line: In this ayeh, Moe is using psychological warfare against the local Jewish settlements. He is setting them up for terror, to soften them for conquest.
