Exactly, and the main difference I see between the Muslims and the Christians is that some Muslims do take Quran literly and they become terrorists.
I believe it says something like, kill the infidels, or protect yourself from the nonbelievers, or something like that. And many of the terrorists see the Jews and Americans as the infidels and the nonbelievers so they think that they must sacrifice themselves for their god and their religion.
Those passages were said when Muhammad was being attacked by the people from Mecca because he was kicked out for trying to convert people to Islam. I do not think that it means go out and kill every non-Muslim, but it can be interpreted however because there is no hierarchy in Islam, the interpretation is all your own.
Those passages are some of the reasons many Muslims hate Jews so much. And the president of Iran says he wants them wiped off the planet, and he is trying to get some nukes. Many people think he is just bullshitting. But Hitler wrote a book about what he was going to do to the Jews, and no one believed him, and look what happened there.
