Your points are:

The problem is not Islam. If so, how do you explain the verses such as :

I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

2:191, And slay them wherever ye catch them

2:193, And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression

2:216, Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you

3:28, Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah

4:48 Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed.

4:84, Then fight in Allah's cause - Thou art held responsible only for thyself - and rouse the believers. It may be that Allah will restrain the fury of the Unbelievers; for Allah is the strongest in might and in punishment.

How do you explain the conduct of Mohammed who waged relentless wars, some seventy or so and all of them offensive , on other tribes and killed them and enslaved the women and children. Is he an example for others to follow in todays world.

How do you explain the relentless propaganda carried on in mosques and madarassas that Islam will win the world and dominate etc.

Let me clarify that it is not ethnical question; it transcends that. It is a political religious movement with a design to submit the entire world to its theocratic rule.

I am unconvinced about your itjihad etc; sounds absolutely spurious and there is no evidence that Islamic rule in Spain, India etc was glorious or tolerant. I have already quoted what Will Durant said.

This is what Islam does to its minorities: Claiming a corpse in Malaysia: M Moorthy, 36, was a national hero in Malaysia due to his mountaineering exploits, especially his being a member of his country's first expedition to the top of Mount Everest in May 1997. He was also a Hindu, the child of Hindu parents, married to a Hindu wife, who as recently as two months ago was interviewed on television about his preparations for the Hindu festival of Diwali. But he was paralyzed from the waist down due to a 1998 injury and a fall from his wheelchair on Nov. 11 led to his death on Nov. 20. His family, naturally, wanted to give him a Hindu funeral.

At that point, however, an Islamic court sided with Moorthy's former colleagues in the Malaysian Armed Forces who claimed that he had converted to Islam; the court would not even permit the family, non-Muslims, to appear before it to dispute the matter. A dreadful scene then occurred at the mortuary as family members jostled with state Islamic officials and former soldiers for the body. The family lost and applied to the country's Appellate and Special Powers High Court, which ruled that it could not override the Islamic courts in such a matter. Moorthy in the end was buried as a Muslim.

The president of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and Sikhism, Rev. Sri K. Dhammananda said the council was "very disturbed" by what happened and called this development "a crisis for non-Muslims because they can seek no legal remedy." He called for the repeal of a subsection of the Federal Constitution "to make it clear that the Syariah [Shari‘a] Court has no jurisdiction to hear matters involving non-Muslims." (December 29, 2005)

Islam will not allow others even to die in peace. I can only say Islam is 7th century barbarism.
