TWO DECADES ago al-Qaeda made its name by mounting a succession of bombings against America across the world. These included the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998; an American destroyer moored in Yemen in 2000; and, most bloodily of all, the attacks of September 11th 2001 on American soil. Though Osama bin Laden, the group’s founder, had long railed against “Jews and Crusaders”, so giving a religious sectarian dimension to his global jihad, his central target was clear: “kill the Americans and their allies”.https://www.economist.com/asia/2019/04/23/global-jihadists-increasingly-strike-at-religious-targets?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Economist_Films&utm_campaign=Link_Description&utm_term=International_Politics_and_Current_Affairs&utm_content=Social_native_videos&linkId=100000005994855&fbclid=IwAR2GgkHwprP_pOA22ZS3-4hz4TcZ5E9HlourqjGM4545Q7LoPLIK61QJnp8

The Quran doesn't speak of it like you think it does. I suggest you buy a copy of Quran with a 'tafseer' or explanation, as verses in the Quran can mean different things once read without context. There is a whole context and a background to almost everything stated in the Quran.

There are several religions and more than a thousand sects that are based on the Abrahamic movement. It is philosophically a wonderful movement, but each sect has their interpretations and each insists that there is only one TRUTH. All nonbelievers are heathens who should be converted or killed.
