Killing in the name of Allah is not subserviance to Allah. It is subserviance to killing, an Earthly secular mean. Subserviance to Allah would mean assessing the various Earthly powers and letting them compete for us. Self defense killing as a blessing ability to save one's life is no subserviance, it is a blessing given by God. On the other hand, killing in a purely unprovoked offensive manner is subserviance to killing to attain a pre-meditated goal of conquest of materials.
Muslims claim they kill in pre-meditated ways to spread the word of Allah, but that is a lie, because killing does not help spread the word, an abstract immaterial thing that is independent of material life.
