Myth vs Fact #52

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 8:57-60 So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson. And let not those who disbelieve think that they can outstrip (escape from the punishment). Verily, they will never be able to save themselves (from Allah’s Punishment).  And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

Tafsir:
Bottom
Line:
Relate this: So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson. to the final sentence of 59:2 :
Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).

Those are clearly tokens of terrorism, as is 8:60, which is made clear by Yusuf Ali, Rodwell & Sale.  “to strike terror into”
