1,400 years of following the example of Muhammad, we see the Islamic pattern of jihad and Islamic imperialism through violence and al-Hijra, the Islamic doctrine of migration. Al-Hijra, based on the "perfect model" Muhammad, who migrated from Mecca to Medina. And now from the Middle East to Europe to Africa to the US to Asia and beyond... colonization, then war.
Muhammad's prophetic career is meaningfully divided into two segments: the first in Mecca, where he labored for fourteen years to make converts to Islam; and later in the city of Medina (The City of the Apostle of God), where he became a powerful political and military leader. In Mecca, we see a quasi-Biblical figure, preaching repentance and charity, harassed and rejected by those around him; later, in Medina, we see an able commander and strategist who systematically conquered and killed those who opposed him. It is the later years of Muhammad's life, from 622 AD to his death in 632, that are rarely broached in polite company. In 622, when the Prophet was better than fifty years old, he and his followers made the Hijra (emigration or flight), from Mecca to the oasis of Yathrib -- later renamed Medina -- some 200 miles to the north.

Jihadist Calls on Muslims in France to Become a "Trojan Horse" and Attack French Civilians MEMRI, January 25, 2013
The following is a message to France from the Mujahideen of Syria that was posted on the Internet on January 23, 2013.
Jihadist: This Message is addressed to the French Republic and its people from the Mujahideen of Syria, following the French government's decision to attack our noble brothers, who instated the shari'a, who fought polytheism, who spread monotheism in northern Mali – the law of Allah, the shari'a, the only legislation to which a Muslim may submit.
The most fundamental right of a Muslim is to live according to his religion, and his duty is to strive to instate it on the lands of Islam.
A Mujahid fights so that the word of Allah may reign supreme.
The simple reason that drives France and its allies to attack and kill those who establish the shari'a in Muslim countries is that they want to maintain the subservient regimes that agreed to be their vassals, to serve their interests in Muslim countries, and to oppress them with their tyranny.
As a result of the decision of the French government, which is not satisfied with preventing our virtuous sisters from donning the veil in accordance with Allah's decree, and with constantly fighting Islam and the Muslims...
Today, in addition to its presence alongside the Crusaders in Afghanistan, France has become the banner of heresy and of the enemies of Allah, by attacking Islamic Mali.
As a bitter consequence, we urge and encourage Muslims worldwide, as well as those living in France, to perform their religious duty like a Trojan horse – to hit French interests, their institutions, their military, and their civilians, on the national territory (of France), as well as abroad.
The aim is to terrorize them, so that the French people will have to blame their Satanic leaders for their decision, leading to the loss of the security and tranquility they once enjoyed.
They will not enjoy them anymore as long as France continues to act as an enemy of Islam and the Muslims.
We remain confident in the true promise of Allah that He will bring victory to those who support His religion, and that those who are slain for the sake of Allah will live in His Paradise, whereas the disbelievers who are killed are tormented in their graves, waiting to be fuel in the Hellfire.
I will conclude this statement by inviting you to join Islam, to read the Koran, and to follow His last Prophet and Messenger, who was sent in compassion to all of mankind to free them from submission to other men and from the worship of idols, and (to direct mankind) to submit to Allah and to worship Him exclusively.
Blow them up wherever they are, and slaughter them.
Expel them for the hills of Jerusalem and defeat them.
