I was born in UAE(united arab emirates), being muslim from indian parents, THEY DID NOT GIVE ME CITIZENSHIP EITHER OR TO MY BROTHER. I have lived there for 16 years, people practice their religion quietly, they go to the mosque....pray, and come back home. No one over there likes killing "non-believers". I have read the Quran as well as i was taught in school as a course and i never saw teachings which justified killing a believer or non-believer in any way; Murder sent you to hell, Suicide sent you to hell. Unless they were coming to kill you and invade your land which is called jihad(kill or be killed situation).

Islam taught us to be tolerant and let others practice what they want, because forcing islam on someone doesnt mean they become muslims. Please be open minded, read the Quran yourself (there is only one version, you can get them in any language. It will clear your doubts and change your opinions.

BTW, Christians who claim to be loving and peaceful have all committed a lot of acts of violence and murder, through history.
