Mr Harrak: You are not the first muslim to get embarassed by reading about the killings rapes and looting by your prophet and the fact that he earned his living by killing and looting his victims. Since Quran is so ambiguous confusing and disjointed , you try to get away with out of context excuse (although whole Quran itself is out of context and chronology). But there is no escape from hadiths and siras which clearly spell out all the violent activities of Mohmmed and complement the quranic ayas. Thus you just discredit it totally. That is what many new muslim sects do (Submitters are the largest).

Now, here you and your coreligionist deniers of hadiths and history "the submitters" etc deny the very history of Islam because it shows their prophet was a criminal. Can you tell us what happened to the real history of Islam and why all these devout followers of Muhammad who were so brainwashed that they were ready to die for him, instead of reporting the true story of him portrayed him, their own prophet, as a thug? This argument is counterintuitive and quite unintelligent. It makes absolutely no sense that all the followers of Muhammad confabulated with each other to fabricate false stories about their prophet making him look like a criminal. We can perfectly understand why believers lie to attribute false miracles to their prophet and make him look holy.
