Plato says you are very good in Holy Quran. However, I discover you are always quick in jumping conclusion to condemn the holy Quran for violence. Let's me extract the verse as below for explanation:

Quran 9:95, "They will swear to you by Allah when you return to them so that you may turn aside from them; so do turn aside from them; surely they are unclean and their abode is hell; a recompense for what they earned." This verse is the advice from Allah to the pagans, the unclean,and we are told to turn aside from them, or in other words, Allah told us not to associate with the pagans. However, this verse does not tell us that we have to ill-treat them. The phrase, their abode is hell, in Quran 9:95 certainly refers to the consequence after the last judgment day. Or in other words, this verse should be meant to be for the execution of Allah to non-muslims. As it is the execution of Allah to non-muslims, we, muslims, have to respect Allah's decision for his execution of judgment by him. We, muslims, must not abuse the authority of Allah in which it is mentioned that Allah is the one to execute judgment upon non-muslims. We, muslims, have no right to execute judgment while we are on earth since Allah did not/do not delegate this right to us. Bear in mind that the phrase, their abode is hell, is mentioned in Quran 9:95 and it certainly refers to the last judgment day in which Allah will deal directly with non-muslims. However, you have abused this verse to support that we, muslims, have to fight while on earth. Your act is simply to abuse the right of Allah since Allah mentions that He will do it and He did not/do not delegate this authority to us. Bear in mind that Allah could send a non-muslims to hell. We, muslims, could have no power to send them to hell. As the word, hell, is mentioned, it certainly refers to the Last Judgment Day instead of the current stuation.

You have abused the Holy Quran for war. Who do you think we are? We are not Allah! How could we abuse the authority of Allah especailly Allah is the only one can put non-muslims to hell. But we cannot.
