Mr Mohammad Ali:
John M. has very correctly analyzed 5.32. Mohammed prohibited killing of muslims only . Tafsir e Khatir also confirms that.Muslims can be killed only for three reasons as this hadiths clearly outlines.

Bukhari Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and
leaves the Muslims."
However a non muslim is killed for denying to accept islam:

9.5: Kill the infidels wherever you find them unless they accept islam. (summay of aya)
Many hadiths and sira confirm it:
002.216 Fighting is prescribed for you,
008.065 Rouse the Believers to the fight.
009.088 : Those who believe , strive and fight with their wealth and their persons:
009.111 Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth.

Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle

Tabari IX:69 "Killing disbelievers is a small matter to us."

Ishaq:550 "The Muslims met them with their swords. They cut through many arms and skulls. Only confused cries and groans could be heard over our battle roars and snarling."]
Ishaq:489 "Do the bastards think that we are not their equal in fighting? We are men who think that there is no shame in killing."

Tabari VIII:143. He encountered a large force whom he summoned to Islam. They refused to respond so he killed all of them."
