Read the Qur'an maybe you'll learn something... It's not a book advocating violence, it's actually a peaceful book... Stop demonizing Islam with your ignorant words. Learn about it directly instead of what you "heard" or "read" from BS sources...
We hear this alot....about the Quran being a book of peace and yet we are constanly confronted with thier insane intoleration and bloody ways.
"will come saying peace peace but there is no peace"

Sorry Poet, I can't say anything to change your mind.
If I have a wife, I won't treat her like garbage, unlike my neighbor (I won't beat her up), treat her with at most respect, and allow her to work if she wishes to.
Yes Poet I'm a Muslim.
Let's think about the other side poet, shall we? Iran produces more women scientists than men, huge number of Iranian women are stacking up to study Engineering and Sciences, and they are great inventors. Why don't you think about Indonesia and Malaysia?
My sister is top in her school, she's 16 and already has 3 scholarships.
New Zealand Muslim Women are much more independent, and qualified than Muslim Men.
Here is a deal, why don't you come and see for yourself?
I have four sisters, my oldest sister has her qualifications in pharmaceutics, my two younger sisters are studying in University of Otago right now, one wants to become a Doctor, the other hasn't decided yet. My youngest sister is still at school and she has already got 3 scholarships to study in Auckland University for free, and that is the TOP, Internationally recognized University in NZ.
because I'm a Muslim.
here is my sister in NZ Newspaper (no one forced her to cover her head):

Let's establish one thing first:
Are you suggesting I'm not a Muslim?

Wow! Truly a can of worms.
I don't like Islam. I'm not gonna be all PC and say that it's a religion of peace, or that you can't generalize it. I do think most Muslim people are decent and probably overlook the more hostile parts of their religion, I'm sure many individual Muslims are very charitable and peaceful, but the religion is not.
On the other hand, Islam is not as bad as the New World Order which wants you to fear it so much.
The reason why we are encouraged to hate Muslims is because the Muslim countries are the last civilization in the way of world domination by the bankers,
at least that's my theory.
Even if you have the Islam operating system properly installed,
either the Islamic Suicide Paradise virus is disabled,
or you're not showing any symptoms of it.

I had to stop reading at the 3rd verse. First of all you don't mention the context of the verses where people are told to slay others. Secondly, from the little context that is included it would appear the context is self defense.
"Fight if they fight you." And in all your superior reasoning skills do you believe it should say "Expose your jugular in defeat if they wish to fight you."
Then you should read more to educate yourself for your own sake. The list is long for a reason, also see what others have posted in the thread or google History of Jihad and other related articles.
Also, quotes like that are interpreted by muslim religious leaders to suit their need, one day the quote means self-defence, the other day it means Jihad and war.
