Dear (logic-divorced, misguided and possibly taqiya monger) sir

32. Because of that, We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with Al-Bayyinat, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits in the land!) (33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified, or their hands and their feet be cut off on opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.) (34. Except for those who (having fled away and then) came back (as Muslims) with repentance before they fall into your power; in that case, know that Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.)

Notes

1) 5:32 refers to the children of Israel not the muslims. But even if it refers to both, it matters little due to the following veres

2) 5:33 says it is perfectly fine to kill, crucify, maim and exile people who fight muslims and "spread corruption to the land". (Not-so-funny-sidenote: Does this sound like something that a certain "Islamic State" is doing nowadays?) Would you like to enlight us here and please tell us what is "corruption" according to the "perfectly clear book" (said sarcastically)? I want you to tell us which of the below may constitute "spreading corruption" according to Islam:

Not allowing men to marry 6 year old girls and consummate the marriage when they are 9 years old.

Not allowing men to marry 4 women

Not allowing men to possess and have sex with women captives (Boko Haram anyone?)

Not allowing men to hit their wives

Not allowing husbands to rape their wives. In other words marital rape (I bet you just fell from the sky when you read this and are having trouble understanding what it even means)

Not allowing men to inherit double of what women inherit

Not allowing a woman's testimony in court to count as half of a man's

Not allowing men to divorce their wives by saying three times talaq

Not allowing muslims kill those who leave Islam

Not allowing muslims to kill or abuse those who criticize Islam and Mohammed

Not allowing muslims to kill or abuse homosexuals

Not allowing Khaliphs to wage offensive jihad to those who refuse to submit to Islam.

Not allowing muslims to ask Jews and Christians to either convert, pay Jizya (extortion money) or die

Allowing other religions to freely proselytize and pray in public

Allowing people to eat pork and drink alcohol

Allowing women to walk around freely and not be segregated from men

3) 5:34 reiterates ad nauseum the simple fact that the only salvation from death/torture/exile for infidels and "corruption spreaders" is to convert to Islam (convert or die/suffer). There is no compulsion in religion indeed! (said sarcastically again, in case your logic devoid mind missed it)

Do us a favour and stop repeating ad nauseum this verse when it actually promotes the opposite of what you claim. You are embarassing yourself. Oh and by the way, no matter what other religions teach, violence and supremacism are never OK (tu quoque, google it) my dear ignoramus.

Best Regards

Submitting....
