Islam makes me want to be a better person, to help humanity, worship God and appreciate all that I have.. and this includes life."

Many Muslims will like the unbelievers to believe that Islam teaches to love others. Please inform me where even once does the Koran or any of the hadiths say to love or even treat the unbelievers same as the Muslims?

Where does the Koran say all religions are good and it does not make any difference which religion one belongs to as far as one is a good, kind and gentle person?

Where does it say "which God one worships or in what manner is immaterial as long as one does good things and promotes peace and goodwill"?

Indeed there are many "good" Muslims who cause no harm to others but it is so not because they are Muslims but in spite of being a Muslim. For if they were to be good Muslim and follow the Koran they have to be at least harsh to the unbelievers.
