>>There isn't an iota of peace and love in Islam and is full of hate towards everybody. In short Islam is anti-life.<<

You said it Jaladhi. The anti-life nature of Islam is revealed in the following verses:

057.020
YUSUFALI: Know ye (all), that the life of this world is but play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying, (in rivalry) among yourselves, riches and children. Here is a similitude: How rain and the growth which it brings forth, delight (the hearts of) the tillers; soon it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow; then it becomes dry and crumbles away. But in the Hereafter is a Penalty severe (for the devotees of wrong). And Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the devotees of Allah). And what is the life of this world, but goods and chattels of deception?

009.038
YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter.

006.032
YUSUFALI: What is the life of this world but play and amusement? But best is the home in the hereafter, for those who are righteous. Will ye not then understand?

016.107
YUSUFALI: This because they love the life of this world better than the Hereafter: and Allah will not guide those who reject Faith.

Muslims are asked to prefer the life of the Hereafter. The life of this world is considered to be play and amusement i.e reject life, embrace death! And many Muslims are doing it enthusiastically.

Regards,

Plato
