Essential Distinction Between Torah and Quran - Love of Almighty God of Israel

"Love is not the answer nor is shar'ia." Lo tov?? Really???

It appears to this reader, and to many others as might be expected who love their LORD, that the Torah is emphatic on the subject of love:

Deuteronomy 6:5) "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [is] one LORD: 5) And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might."

Leviticus 19:34) "But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God."

For if our devotion to the LORD Almighty God is not based on the love He has for us and the love that we share from Him through His Holy Word, then what do we have? Is this not why Islam/Shari'a proposes to replace the Torah because it does not understand or embrace His love?
