"Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians -- whoever believes in God and the Last Day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord. And there will be no fear for them, nor shall they grieve" (2:62, 5:69, and many other verses).
"...and nearest among them in love to the believers will you find those who say, 'We are Christians,' because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant" (5:82).
"O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors; they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship or alliances) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust. (5:51)
You may fight in the cause of GOD against those who attack you, but do not aggress. GOD does not love the aggressors.(2:190)
You may kill those who wage war against you, and you may evict them whence they evicted you. Oppression is worse than murder. Do not fight them at the Sacred Masjid, unless they attack you therein. If they attack you, you may kill them. This is the just retribution for those disbelievers.(2:191)
If they refrain, then GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.(2:192)
You may also fight them to eliminate oppression, and to worship GOD freely. If they refrain, you shall not aggress; aggression is permitted only against the aggressors.(2:193)

The Kurds are Muslims. The Iraqis and Syrians are Muslims. They are bearing the brunt of ISIL.
The US is responsible for this tragedy mostly.
So the Muslims are going crazy now before they were all colonized by the Christian nations who in WWI AND WWII had wars that killed more people in all the wars in the history of wars on the planet. That not even counting all the genocides they did and slaves and colonized people who died through their misrule and oppression
Such as the Christian King Leopold who worked, not read this carefully:
WORKED 10 MILLION AFRICANS TO DEATH!
So please spar us the Muslims are eviler than everybody else
The Qur'an openly states many times that Allah is the 'best deceiver'. The root word used in these verses is Makr which means deception
And the (unbelievers) Plotted and planned, and Allah to plotted and planned, and the best of planners is Allah. (3:54)
Did they then feel secure from the plan of Allah, except those doomed to ruin (speaking about Atheists) (7:99)
Remember how the unbelievers plotted against you, to keep you in bonds, or slay you, or drive you out (of your home). They plot and plan, and Allah to plans; but the best of planners is Allah. (8:30)
They follow the Hadiths of Mohammad

They unlike most western religion have kept both the Shariah( exoteric) and the Tariqah.( esoteric)...
True religion requires both. Just practicing a shariah is like trying to walk with one leg
It’s no accident that NONE of the fundamentalist Muslim countries allow Sufism
Example: grave worship
This is the practice of Sufi
A Muslim should fully trust in the compassion and mercy of Allah after the death of a loved one .
