Qur'an says killing a single soul is like killing the whole of humanity...with this verse & many others how can one conclude that Islam says muslims should just kill or behead every non-muslim?
The holy master Muhammad lived peacefully in Medina with the Jews, Christians & pagans , then how can one conclude that Islam says muslims should just kill or behead every non-muslim?

Therefore how do we explain the verses that say kill the unbelievers. Most of the verses say kill them as they do kill you,(meaning retaliate).

Some verses even emphased by saying wherever you see them. This assertion can well be depended if you can depend the assertion of the Western leaders that every key leader of the Al-qaeda network should be killed, in some cases even some reward of 25 million US Dollar is mentioned. Then can you conclude by saying the Western leaders say kill every muslim where ever you see them?
Please read the Qur'an & the Hadith with the clear mind, you will definitely get guidance.
