Is this true, does anyone have a copy of Quaran to confirm this?

I would like just to know if these lines are really in Quaran. not by some someone who hasn't read the quaran, but by someone who did. And tell me if these verses are in Quaran and if they are accurate.

I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them 8:12 Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah 3:28, "O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as awliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but awliya' to one another…Q.5: 51 I was also shocked to learn the Quran denies freedom of belief for all and clearly states Islam is the only acceptable religion (Q.3:85). Allah relegates those who do not believe in the Quran to hell (Q.5:11) and calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) (Q.9:28). He says unbelievers will go to hell and will drink boiling water (Q.14:17).

Further, "As for the unbelievers, for them garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowls and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods" (Q.22:9). How sadistic! The book of Allah says women are inferior to men and their husbands have the right to beat them (Q.4:34), and that women will go to hell if they are disobedient to their husbands (Q.66:10). It says men have an advantage over women (Q.2:228). It not only denies women equal right to their inheritance (Q.4:11-12), it also regards them as imbeciles and decrees that their testimony alone is not admissible in court (Q.2:282). This means that a woman who is raped cannot accuse her rapist unless she can produce a male witness, which of course is a joke. Rapists don't rape in the presence of witnesses. But the most shocking verse is where Allah allows Muslims to rape women captured in wars even if they are married before being captured (Q.4:24) (Q.4:3) Religion of peace? Tollerance (well pre-muslim arabs were tolerant)?

If any of these are true - well people - we have nothing to discuss because 'TRUE Muslims' must follow Quaran to the letter. How can believers act not acording to God's will? And here's another intersting fact: While not most muslims are terrorists, most terrorists are muslims. Why is that? The answer is in Quaran verses.
