Mansoor, you wrote:

>> But this is a very old and toothless tactic to quote Quran the glorious out of context.

None of the verse mentioned above is a direct threat to non believers. Every verse above is revealed to prophet at the time of confrontation or in the state of war with the disbelievers….<<

If it is not a direct threat, is it an indirect one? Since they were revealed at the time of war does it mean that we can ignore them in peacetime or wait for wartime to put them into effect?

>> When you are becoming victim of hostility, you should kill, destroy and enslave your enemy. This is normal war practice, not at all objected worldwide. Why maligning the message????<<

Would Pakistan have objected if India had beheaded the 75,000 of your soldiers captured in the 1971 war or distributed them as house slaves to the Indian officers? Why did Pakistan demand your POWs be sent back?

>>Whatever action is taken by Muslims in all severeness is purely to defend their homeland and expel the intruders and illegal occupiers.<<

When the Arab Muslims invaded your country more than a thousand years ago what were the invaders defending? Don't you think it is high time you expelled these invaders, intruders and occupiers from your country and let the original inhabitants, the Hindus and Buddhists, reoccupy their lost homeland?

When the Arabs invaded Spain, Egypt, Persia, Africa whose homeland were they defending?
