In 1793, Muslim Barbary pirates captured the U.S. cargo ship Polly. The ship was plundered and the crew was imprisoned. The Muslim captain justified their brutal treatment: "for your history and superstition in believing in a man who was crucified by the Jews and disregarding the true doctrine of God's last and greatest prophet, Mohammed."
"The precept of the Qur'an 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..." John Quincy Adams
