Words for PR. Words for the believers. Not the same.
I quote from the Koran. "Kill them wherever you find them... Strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme".
Read 'em and weep.

The Bible also prescribes death for idolators. It includes stories both of God himself committing mass killings of idolators (the worshippers of the Golden Calf) and of God ordering humans to do so (wiping out the entire populations of many cities the Israelites captured in the conquest of the "holy land" under Moses and Joshua).
If we followed all the injunctions of the bible we would behave not much different from the most radical of Muslims. Neither do, nor must, all Muslims so treat the Koran.
