But what if they choose not to accept Islam? Would they be beheaded like Mohammad (pbuh) used to do to them?
WOW u people are so deceptive!!
if they dont convert to Islam they will have 2 pay jizya if they are poor they dont pay jizya. They will not be killed . Lets see wht the 3rd caliph of Islam said
At-Tabari reported: Umar ibn Al-Khattab made peace with the people of Jerusalem at Al-Jabiya and therein he wrote a single covenant for every village besides Jerusalem: In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. This is what is granted of security by the servant of Allah, Umar, the commander of the faithful, to the people of Jerusalem. He grants them safety for their lives, their property, their churches, and their crucifixes, for their ill, their healthy, and their entire community. Their churches will not be occupied, demolished, or decreased in number. Their churches and crucifixes will not be desecrated and neither anything else of their property. They will not be coerced to abandon their religion and none of them will be harmed.

so when Umar conquered Jerusalem he didnt kill any of them . Had Muhammad taught to kill Umar would of.
Muhammad fought in battle but look at the history HE IS OUTNUMBERED IN EVERY BATTLE HE is a leader. He has to defend his community. Moses fought in battle aswell . Hav u forgot tht.
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:الْإِيمَانُ قَيَّدَ الْفَتْكَ لَا يَفْتِكُ مُؤْمِنٌFaith has prevented treacherous assassination. A believer does not assassinate.

, the Prophet did not kill anyone merely because he was insulted, but rather he performed military operations against aggressors in defense of the Muslim community.
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا مُعَاهَدًا لَمْ يَرَحْ رَائِحَةَ الْجَنَّةِ وَإِنَّ رِيحَهَا يُوجَدُ مِنْ مَسِيرَةِ أَرْبَعِينَ عَامًاWhoever kills a non muslim protected by a treaty will never smell the fragrance of Paradise. Verily, its fragrance can be found a distance of forty years of travel.
