You can not just read the Quraán and explain it like this Mr. Fage.

Quaán is like a medical book, you can not just read a medical book and understand it, or once you have red it you become a doctor. Please read the book attached to the Quraán called " Tafseer" (Explainer) that you understand the meaning of those verses you claim encourage Muslims to kill unbelivers.

For instance. The Quraán says: "They (unbelivers) have their religion and you (Muslims) have your own religion." When you read "Tafseer," you would know "They" refer to whom and "You" as well. However, its meaning is to stay away from unbelivers, no attack or threaten. In another word, live in peace with them. No attack, and no killing.

You would even know that Quaán order people not to kill or attack any other religion if you read this verse from Quaán: "Do not threat ever, Allah do not like threatens". This refer to unbelivers. If you read "Tafseer," you would know that Allah order Muslims not to threat or attack other religions. And examples are a lot.

You did a good job to bring these quotes from Quraán but you missinterperted them.
