You are right about Islam being Spread by the sword. But, this was not the only method used by the muslims to propagate the religion. Actually, if you think from the point of view of the muslim warriors back then, you would realise that they were actually putting their lives at risk on the battlefield so that their enemy could see the greater good, which they did. If there was really something wrong with Islam, then the people, if they felt injustice from the muslims, would have rebelled against their rulers. This did not happen though because the message of Islam was true and pure.

Also, the fact that a lot of muslims fight each other does not mean that Islam is against peace, which it is not. Many muslims and non-muslims alike lack proper knowledge of the religion. So, the ignorant can look at anyone who ahs a long white beard and take their false message to heart. Hence the war, terrorism, cruelty you see today shown by so called muslims. Many of these people are wahabbis, whose leader Ibn Wahab was himself an ignorant fool who fell into the traps of the british gouvernment.

It is important to understand that wahabbis, including Ben Laden and many other terrosits, are in actuallity not even muslims!

As to the comment regarding the prophet's last words, to me it sounds completely false, but if you may give me the source of the quote I'd be glad to take a look.
