Interesting! Human brotherhood, eh? Will they renounce these Qur’an verses and others like them?

“Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Book and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the most vile of created beings.” (Qur’an 98:6)

“Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not believe.” (Qur’an 8:55)

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are ruthless against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves.” (Qur’an 48:29)

“O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them.” (Qur’an 9:73)

“O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness.” (Qur’an 9:123)

“And kill them wherever you find them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, for persecution is worse than slaughter.” (Qur’an 2:191)

“They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)

“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (Qur’an 9:5)

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, and do not hold forbidden what has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, of the People of the Book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (Qur’an 9:29).
