"The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet
of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may
be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet,
may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem
creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the
prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force."
