Myth vs Fact #18

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.    3:157 And if you are killed or die in the Way of Allâh, forgiveness and mercy from Allâh are far better than all that they amass (of worldly wealths, etc.). 
Tafsir Prohibiting the Ideas of the Disbeleivers about Death and Predestination
Some of the Believers Give Flight on the Day of Uhud
Bottom Line: 3:150-200 are rabble rousing/warmongering verses. In them, Moe is trying to overcome objections & reluctance to joining Jihad. Muslims are afraid of being killed in battle. He pitches the great reward to be obtained through martyrdom.
