To answer your question

My arguments here are focused on religion, not politics.

And honestly Sultan, my strong belief is that there is no justification for violence in the name of Religeon or in the name of GOD

What US is doing in Iraq is simply politics. Killing has no justification in Christianity, violence has no justification in Jesus teachings nor in his actions.

That's why my question is still open, when you said that Muhammad was defending Islam by killing people, and also the order of killing came from GOD. My point is that GOD's words should be true all the time. If you think that the violent verses in the Quran are not valid in today's world. And since we know that GODs words should be true all times then these words could not have came from GOD even 1400 years ago.

If GOD permits killing in his name, it is actually damaging GOD's main characters, Love and Mercy.

Do you honestly believe that this verse in Quran "kill the infidels" comes from loving and merciful GOD.

When you say that " Even if Christianity or another religion becomes the most believed one we as Muslims must always peacefully keep our religion and never change it.This dont mean that we kill non believers"

I recall that you have justified the killing of unbelievers 1400 years ago by saying that was for defending Islam so the religion will not die, now if Islam is in danger today don't you think that "killing the infidels" is right, it is justified in the Quran and the conditions are similar to what was 1400 years ago.

I would appreciate clear answer on all of my points above please

Thanks
