First of all nowhere in the Quran says kill women or children as you see a great equivalence of that part in Torah. You would know that if you read the Quran as a whole instead of just listen what people says and points out.

"It turns out that during the time of Muhammad, many of the tribes in Arabia were Jewish. Therefore he did kill some Jews in the process of raiding-- which was his profession."

Great reasoning !!! Congrats !!! So with the same reasoning can we say this: It turns out that during the time Israel was established there were Muslims living in their own lands. Therefore Israel kill some Muslims in the process of invasion- which was their profession.

Please read this article and this discussion here. They will give you an insight about the relations between Muslims and Jews at the time of Prophet Muhammed (pbuh).

"Those were savage times, and people did savage things just to keep their tribe together. Hopefully we have advanced far enough, at this stage in history, to be able to move over and make a little room for our neighbor."

I wish I could agree with you. The only advancement has been had is the tools that is used to do savage things. Talking about savage things and making room for our neighbors have you read the article published on British Newspaper The Independent.
