For the first case, there's no penalty at all, it is an individual choice that is made by the person, in which he didn't intend any harm to the community, the second case is the opposite, as he does intend to harm the community, in which the death penalty is the punishement.
    That's probably your interpretation. However, the historic details point to a different meaning. The most reasonable examples to consider are:
    1. Muhammad's example
    After gaining a large number of followers, Muhammad returned to Mecca to take over the city and cleanse it from pagan idols --> to me this sounds like an offensive technique rather than a defensive one.
    2. The rule of force implemented by the Ottoman empire (which was an Islamic organization at core)
    I'm not even going to mention which methods have been applied when conquering the countries from South East Europe , North Africa and Arabia.
