Thats completely boulderdash -- Christians and Jews are considered "People of the Book", people of Abraham in Islam, they are highly regarded not infidels like the media has told u. Even in the Crusdaes, when the muslims took back Jerusalem from the Christians they let the Christians and Jews continue to live in the country without any attacks on them. Anyone with even a little bit of Islamic knowledge can tell you Islam doesn't advocate the killing of civilians, only these crazy terrorists will tell you otherwise.
Islam absolutely advocates the killing off of non-Muslims. Islam belief is to convert any non-followers, and if they resist, to kill them. Your examples of Musims letting Jews and Christians live in the country means next to nothing b/c it is a one time occurence, where as Islam's Holy War (killing off of non-followers) has been practised for hunders of years. Your other points seemed somewhat knowledgable, but you're sadly mistaken on this matter. I leave you with some quotes from the "Holy" Qur'an and Hadiths:
VIII/65: "O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred stedfast they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence."
VIII/12: "When thy Lord inspired the angels, I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then maim them in every limb and smite of them each finger."
Quotes from the Hadiths:
Sahih Al Bukhari, 216:"I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify that there is no God but Allah & that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah & until he performs the prayers & pays the Zakat."
Sahih Muslim, 217: "Verily Allah has prescribed proficiency in all things. Thus if you kill, KILL WELL, & if you slaughter, SLAUGHTER WELL. Let each one of you sharpen his blade."
