If i may take the pleasure of letting all know-

1)"Islam is the only non-christian faith which makes it n article of faith to believe in Jesus(A.S.).No muslim is a muslim if he does not believe in Jesus(a.s.)

2) We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah SWT

3)We believe that he was born miraculously without any male intervention,which many modern day christians do not believe.

4)we believe that he gave life to the dead with God's permission

5)We believe that He healed those born blind,and leapers with God's permission.
One may wonder then wheres the point of difference..THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHRISTIANITY AND SILAM IS THE CHRISTIANS' INSISTANCE ON THE SUPPOSED DIVINITY OF CHRIST.while a study of the christian scriptures reveals that JESUS a.s.never claimed divinity..Infact theres not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus a.s.himself says"I am God"or where he says "worship me".Infact Bible has statements attributed to Jesus.a.s. in which he preached quite the contrary.
so we(muslims and christians ) both believe in Adam(A.S.)..and Jesus(A.S)..
christians would stop at Jeses(a.s.).as the last messenger infact the Son of God as they call Him.

While Muslims go on to believe Mohommed(pbuh)was Allah's last messenger and prophet.
Point of difference arises when christians call Jesus as the SON of GoD..While Muslims argue-
He(Jesus.A.S.) WAS SON OF Mary(Maryam) ALONE(as gifted by God-not begotten) and did not have any father..as ALMIGHTY GOD NEITHER BEGETS NOR WAS HE BEGOTTEN....

Jesus(a.s.) did heal people ..but only with the help of special power bestowed on Him by HIS(JESUS.A.S.)'s And OUR God..Allah(s.w.t)not could he do it on his own.
If anyone disagrees that Jesus derived his powers from God...and think he was himself all powerful..,kindly refer:

"My Father is Greater than I"(John 14:28)

"My father is Greater Than all"(John 10:29)

"...I cast out devils by the spirit of God.."(Matthew 12:28)

"..with the finger of God cast out devils.."(Luke 11:20)

"I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear,I judge;and my judgement is just;because I seek not my own will,but the will of the Father,which hath sent me."

As for your quotes

where YOU THink Holy Quran says:

"When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam. (5:33)
The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies
Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur'an (8:12)
Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels (8:60) "

Lets see ,what I got from the Holy Quran as Real quotes..even though its a chapter based on one of the wars -
as theTreaties with those pagans who treacherously broke their terms are denounced..yet four months time is given for adjustment or repentance.
ITS THE INFEDILITY thats to be fought 1.www.answering-islam.org

> 2. www.aboutislam.com

> 3. www.thequran.com

> 4.www.allahassurance.com

what BAD job! they tried real hard to manipulate the islamic information..,well any rational person with basic Islamic-knowledge or who met any real muslims in person ,
can't stop laughting at the "converts from islam to chritianity"column which is "Not to Miss"add on up there....where the "Pseudo-converts" from Islam to christianity are mensioned..as though they are real people..narrating their experiences and how they got out of the "ISLAMIC CLUTCHES" ..funny.
considering all those who are completely blank about what islam is or what muslims actually are like..the job is fine..rest can look into these sites to get a laught :)..( like i just did).

Talking about the CH9:29-

29. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued
Nowhere is the word "kill" as you tried to hype it up.As for the Jizyah tax..it means-
"a poll tax levied from those who did not accept islam ,but were willing to live under the protection of islam ,and were thus
tacitly willing to submit to its ideas being enforced in the muslim state."

How easy it is for the reader to ignore the verses in the same chapter:9...where Almighty Allah inspite of the breach of terms of treaties by the Pagans is Still asking Believers to be just and be generous with people seeking asylum.
** If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the Word of Allah; and then escort him to where he can be secure. That is because they are men without knowledge.

Just imagine the deal of mercy Such a God must possess..most ignorants blindly talk crap about Islam not knowing what it actually is all about..passing vague but ridiculous statements about it.
I Would also love to bring to notice the position of Women in islam in near future.. with ref. to the general notion:In Islam -"women have no soul" ,being a muslim myself ,confidently aware of equal rights for women in Islamic shariah.

And as for Beloved Prophet(p.b.u.h)you ought to go throught the book-
"AR-RAHEEQ AL-MAKHTUM(The Sealed Nectar)-Biography of the Nobel Prophet(s.a.s)" by Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarakpuri(Islamic university ,Al-Madina Al-Munawwara)in 1979.Maktaba Dar-us-Salam publishers and distributors .that you know whom you actually talking about..This book was awarded first prize out of 171 manuscripts received from all over the world. in the competition held on Prophet Mohommad(pbuh)'s biography in the year 1976 at pakistan throught the muslim world league.
Hope the next time you talk about Him you maintain keep your accusitions within the lines of decency ,making it a more decent and rational arguement/dialogue even if u disagree with me or the Islamic teachings as a whole.I hope you can atleast bear in mind the famous Biblic quote:"JUDGE NOT YE SO THAT YE MAY BE JUDGED",and try to abide by your principles

***QUOTE FOR THE DAY***:Allah doth wish to turn to you, but the wish of those who follow their lusts is that ye should turn away (from Him),- far, far away. [SOURCE:-ch4. Women (An-Nisáa) :27]

Lets try to keep our approach calm and peaceful -as we can still put forth our reasonings and arguements .thankyou.
May Allah SWT guide us all aright...removing the veils of darkness from our eyes and the seal of ignorance set on our hearts-Amen.
