Myth vs Fact #16

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.    3:154 Then after the distress, He sent down security for you. Slumber overtook a party of you, while another party was thinking about themselves (as how to save their ownselves, ignoring the others and the Prophet) and thought wrongly of Allâh – the thought of ignorance. They said, “Have we any part in the affair?” Say you (O Muhammad): “Indeed the affair belongs wholly to Allâh.” They hide within themselves what they dare not reveal to you, saying: “If we had anything to do with the affair, none of us would have been killed here.” Say: “Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death, but that Allâh might test what is in your breasts; and to Mahis that which was in your hearts (sins), and Allâh is All­Knower of what is in (your) breasts.
Tafsir Slumber Overcame the Believers; the Fear that the Hypocrites Suffered
Slumber overcomes Muslims
The Ansar and Muhajirin Defended the Messenger
3:151-160 are about rabble rousing: telling the Muslims to engage in Jihad, they won’t get killed unless their time was up anyway, and how, in that case, they get a great reward. Click the link to see the full context  at the King Fahd Qur’an site.
