I hate to burst your bubble, but the 'ridiculous' interpretations are extremely accurate summaries of the verses.
If you don't believe me check yourself - the summary is followed by the full verse.
1. Non Muslims are both Muslim's and Allah's enemy.
Don't be friends with disbelievers. They are your (and Allah's) enemy.
O ye who believe! Choose not My enemy and your enemy for allies. Do ye give them friendship when they disbelieve in that truth which
hath come unto you
, driving out the messenger and you because ye believe in Allah, your Lord ? If ye have come forth to strive in My way and
seeking My good pleasure, (show them not friendship). Do ye show friendship unto them in secret, when I am Best Aware of what ye hide and what ye
proclaim ? And whosoever doeth it among you, he verily hath strayed from the right way.
Disbelievers are perverted. They are the enemy, confounded by Allah.
And when thou seest them their figures please thee; and if they speak thou givest ear unto their speech. (They are) as though they were
blocks of wood in striped cloaks. They deem every shout to be against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. Allah confound them! How they
2. If a Muslim is friends with a non-Muslim, Allah has prepared a terrible doom.
Don't make friends with Allah's enemies. For those who do so, Allah has prepared a dreadful doom.
58:14 Hast thou not seen those who take for friends a folk with whom Allah is wroth? They are neither of you nor of them,
and they swear a
false oath knowingly.
58:15 Allah hath prepared for them a dreadful doom. Evil indeed is that which they are wont to do.
Muslims that make friends with disbelievers will face a doom prepared for them by Allah.
5:80 Thou seest many of them making friends with those who disbelieve.
Surely ill for them is that which they themselves send on before
them: that Allah will be wroth with them and in the doom they will abide.
3. Muslims are instructed to stay away from and to not be friends with non Muslims.
Stay away from non-Muslims, especially those who disbelieve in the afterlife.
Lo! it is those who disbelieve in the Hereafter
who name the angels with the names of females. Those who disbelieve in the
afterlife give female names to angels.
And they have no knowledge thereof.
They follow but a guess, and lo! a guess can never take the place of the truth.
Then withdraw (O Muhammad) from him who fleeth from Our remembrance and desireth but the life of the world.
Do not choose disbelievers as friends.
O ye who believe! Choose not disbelievers for (your) friends in place of believers.
Would ye give Allah a clear warrant
against you ?
Don't take Jews or Christians for friends. If you do, then Allah will consider you to be one of them.
O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends.
They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh
them for friends is (one) of them.
Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.
4. Non Muslims and their poisonous talk is to be ignored
Ignore disbelievers and their poisonous talk.
And incline not to the disbelievers
and the hypocrites. Disregard their noxious talk
, and put thy trust in Allah. Allah is sufficient
5. Non Muslims are liars and wrong doers to be stayed away from.
Stay away from non-Muslims. They are all liars.
And as for those who chose a place of worship out of opposition and disbelief, and in order to cause dissent among the believers,
and as an outpost for those who warred against Allah and His messenger aforetime, they will surely swear: We purposed naught save good. Allah
beareth witness that they verily are liars.
Don't believe anyone who is not a Muslim.
And believe not save in one who followeth your religion
Say (O Muhammad): Lo! the guidance is Allah's Guidance - that anyone is given the like of that which was given unto you or that they may argue with
you in the presence of their Lord. Say (O Muhammad): Lo! the bounty is in Allah's hand. He bestoweth it on whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing,
Non-Muslims are wrong doers.
And We prescribed for them therein: The life for the life, and the eye for the eye, and the nose for the nose, and the ear for the ear,
and the tooth for the tooth, and for wounds retaliation. But whoso forgoeth it (in the way of charity) it shall be expiation for him. Whoso judgeth
not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are wrong-doers.
The disbelieving people of the Scripture are liars. 59:11
Hast thou not observed those who are hypocrites, (how) they tell their brethren who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture:
If ye are driven out, we surely will go out with you, and we will never obey anyone against you, and if ye are attacked we verily will help you.
And Allah beareth witness that they verily are liars.
Stay away from idolaters.
Follow that which is inspired in thee from thy Lord; there is no God save Him; and turn away from the idolaters.
Those 'ridiculous' interpretations are actually very good summaries.
By the way, the Koran translation used by the Skeptics website is by (Mohammed) Marmaduke Pickthall a Western Muslim scholar who was a convert from
Christianity to Islam and was a stout defender of Turkey and Islam.
It looks like you haven't done your homework again and are wrong again.
