Asalaamu alaykum (peace be upon you)
First and foremost, I meant that the word Islam is derived from the word salaam meaning peace, however the definition of Islam is to 'SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF ALLAH.' I also don't deny that the Islamic religion is hostile to apostates- but what religion isn't?
No, religion (including) Islam has responsibility over how people interpret that which has been written, it say's in the Qur'an the worst person, is he who innovates the Qur'an for his own purpose's. It is the action of Muslim's that highlights the so-called 'hostility to aspostates' NOT ISLAM.

Secondly, Islam has made the biggest contribution to society; it was the Islamic scholar or astronomist who first discovered the arrangements of planets, it was an Islamic scholar who managed to produce gunpowder and torpedo's, it was an Islamic scholar called Ibn Siba (i think its spelt wrong) who produced the first science textbook in the world, it was an Islamic merchant who discovered tea, it was an Islamic scholar who further extended the knowledge of medecine (THESE ARE ALL FACTS). Islam has contributed so much.... no-one can deny that because if you research thoroughly you'll find that I AM RIGHT.

'Can you please read your own sentence. Allah created this Jaal and will send him down to earth to destroy non-believers, his very own creation?' Yes, do you believe the concept of Adam,Eve and the Shayteen (satan) the event which occurred? Then you would know if Allah wanted him to not have eaten it (the apple) it would have, however he gave MANKIND freewill - Taqdeer.
Hence, Allah has given us free-will, the prerogative to decide whether we believe or not and which path we take. Allah already knows which path we are to take, but it wouldn't be a test if he decided for us.

We create are own destiny, hence those who do not believe have no excuse. In the Qur'an it says that Allah created man from a clot of blood, it further mentions that if you deny He, Allah He will deny you.
