Mr Plato:
Believe me the truth is that you are NOT reading all the Hadith of the Prophet (s) which show his generosity, compassion and love for the humanbeings. I don't know why do you want to fill yourself with hatered and depression.

Once the Jews were carrying a dead Jew to the grave yard. The Prophet (s) looked at their funeral and wept. Omar (r) asked the Prophet (s) why are you weeping at a Jew? The Prophet (s) said because he was my ummatti (community) and I could not save him from the hell fire.

A young Jewish boy used to sit in the company of the Prophet (s) and listen to his sermons among his companions. The Prophet (s) liked him. Once the boy got sick and could not attend the sermons. The Prophet (s) found out about his sickness and went to vist him at his house. He visited him and made Du'a (prayer) for him. Then before he returned, he asked the young boy: "Why don't you become a Muslim?" .
The young boy looked towards his father (as if asking for him permission). The father told his son: "Accept Abu alQasim" The boy accepted the Islam. And the Prophet (s) came out of his home very pleased.

An elderly Jewish woman was carrying wood on her back towards her home. The Prophet (s) went to her and offered his help. And took all of her woods and escorted her to her home. Once he dropped her woods, she was very pleased with him. She advised him such "son I will give you a good advice, there is a man with the name Muhammed, who has brought a new religion in our city. Do not listen to him".
But when the Prophet (s) revealed to her that Muhammed was him, she accepted Islam at once.

All the pious Khalifas of the Muslims dealt fairly with the Dhimmis (Jews and Christians) and the History books are full of stories of Salah ud Din Ayoobi and others who were fair to the Jews in Palestine.

I could to on and on Plato.... But the story of Banu Quraizah and Banu Nadhir are the war time stories. And it was as decree from God which was fulfilled. Similar stories are written in Bible and Tanakh about previous Prophets who went to war against the enemies of God.
You should also remember that on the day of the conquest of Makkah, the Prophet (s) forgave EVERONE who had waged a war against the Prophet (s) and Islam for 13 years.

Finally, the punishment of Zina (adultery) is stoning to death, in all 3 religions. But remember Allah has made it very very hard to prove it. For example you need 3 witnesses to prove it otherwise you must let them go. And tell me which fool will commint Zina in front of 3 people?

Recently in a very controversial case, a Shariaa Judge in Pakistan set two people FREE because the prosecution could NOT bring 3 witnesses. So the President Mushraff stepped in and told the Judge to Accept the DNA results. But the Judge Did Not. He told the court that "Quran instructs us to have 3 witnesses and thats what I will accept- period" The scholars of Pakistan praised the Judge and the pair was set free.

I would like to add here that those who Kill their Daughters in the name of "honor Killing" are Pure Idiots and may even end up in Hell for Killing a person without 3 witnesses. They are Big sinners in my eyes and the eyes of the Ulemas (scholars).
The biggest museeba (problem) is when people do not know FULL religion and only know part of it.
