White washing with the absence of the shocking truth:

What do the Islamic sources say about how Muhammad became this leader?

“It was He (Allah) who drove the Jewish People of the Book from their

         homes (Medina) into exile.   Quran 59.2

“I give judgment that their worriers should be killed and their children and

 women should be taken as prisoners.” Bukhari 4,522, 280

“It was Allah who drove the followers of the Book (Jews) from their homes

          (Medina) and into exile.” Quran 59.2

“So the Prophet (Mohammad) killed the Qurayza men. ( beheaded 800 of the

Medina Jewish Tribe)  He distributed their women, children and property among the Muslims.”     Bukhari V5B59N362

“The Jews were made to come down, and Allah’s Messenger imprisoned

them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina, and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men.”   Ishaq 464
