There is no verse in the Qu'ran that says to kill those who do not believe in Allah. The closest you may have referred to is "Quran 9:29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection."

This verse simply saying is to fight atheists who fight the Muslims. This does NOT mean in any way to kill them. If you find a verse that is about killing non-believers, let me know.

Allah created humans, with FREE WILL. It isn't Allah who willed humans to kill humans. It isn't Allah who created a division in Islam.

The Kaba, which is circulated during Hajj, is meant to represent unity. It is not worshipping other idols, because the Kaba is directly related to Allah. It was a gift from the angels (one of the beliefs in Islam, and believed as messengers of Allah) to the prophets (Abraham). It is literally known as the 'House of Allah'

I know this and Im not even Muslim. This is just from learning and speaking with other Muslims through interfaith dialogue. They believe in that too.
