Mr. Keith quoted:
"Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (60) "

THE PURE MEASURELESS BEING THAT IS WITHOUT LIMITATION OR DETERMINATION, THE ONE WHICH IS NOT OPPOSED TO ANOTHER, THE ABSOLUTE SUPREME REALITY, THE UNIVERSAL SELF, DEFINED AS -- EXISTENCE, CONSCIOUSNESS, BLISS--
which we humans call GOD, and by so many other names (including Allah for your joy), is reduced by this Ayah to a mere thug or gangster or warlord or a mafia boss.

You think really that Allah has enemies, friends & alliances, who are they? Can you elaborate.

Ok I presume you'll say those who don't believe in the words of Quran, then it's a clear, categorical presupposition that Quran has zero tolerance for others faiths, and endorses terror.
This Ayah can cause chaos and lawlessness 'cause each individual/groups of muslim/s can construe this in his/their own way, it can also be an excuse and cover for largescale crimes against humanity.

Allah also assures reimbursement of the expenses and compensates fully for these acts of browbeating.
I leave it to the respected members of this forum to throw light on this terror funding.

This Ayah perfectly encapsulates the present state of affairs in the world.

What is your suggestion Mr. Keith, if the laws of your land are in direct contrast with the writings of your book? What do you choose, your Nation or your Religion? Do you or any of your co-religionists have an answer.
