You make fancy points and obviously love your religion, but lets look at what is done by Muslims not just what you want to believe. 1) Muslims are told they can lie in order to bring people into Islam. 2) I was discussing this passage with a moderate Muslim friend who was explaining how jihadists today are going against Islam. Later he said the reason they go against Islam is because their bombs dont give people a chance to turn to Islam like verse 7-8 of Al Taubah say, but if a kafir is given the chance to become Muslim and refuses, then he/she should be killed! THIS IS A MODERATE MUSLIM IN A MODERATE ISLAMIC COUNTRY THAT DOESNT HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY BUT REGULARLY ARRESTS CHRISTIANS!!! I have found moderate Muslims in this "peace loving" country are often very ok with non-Muslims being killed if they are given a clear chance to become Muslims and refuse.
