We must talk about Islam in the political realm, because it is a powerful political system, a system that concerns us. Islam is called the religion of peace, but its politics are the politics of jihad and war.
In Medina Mohammed became a victorious warrior and politician. Politics and jihad were much more effective than religion to convert the Arabs to Islam. If Mohammed had not taken to politics and jihad, there would have only been a few hundred Muslims in Arabia when he died. The religion of Islam was a failure, but politics combined with religion was a total success.

Manchester mosque sermon 'called for armed jihad', say scholars

9:14 "Fight against them [non-believers] so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people;"
9:29 "Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture [Jews and Christians], until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
47:4 When you encounter the unbelievers on the battlefield, cut off their heads until you have thoroughly defeated them and then take the prisoners and tie them up firmly. Afterward, either allow them to go free or let them pay you their ransom until the war is over. This you are commanded. If it had been Allah’s will he would have taken out His vengeance upon them, but He has commanded this so that He may test you by using these others. As for those who are killed for Allah’s cause [jihad], He will not let their sacrifice be in vain. He will lead them into Paradise, of which He has told them.
33:25 And Allah drove back the unbelievers in their wrath, and they gained nothing by it. Allah aided the believers in the war, for Allah is strong and mighty. He brought down some of the People of the Book [the Jews] out of their fortresses to aid the confederates and to strike terror into their hearts. Some you killed, and others you took captive. He made you heirs of their land, their homes, and their possessions, and even gave you another land on which you had never before set foot. Allah has power over everything. [800 male Jews were executed, their property taken, and women and children enslaved.]
66:9 Oh, Messenger, make war on the unbelievers and hypocrites, and be hard on them. Hell will be their home, and wretched is the passage to it.
