This is my question to Muslim women and others. Do you follow these commands from the pages of the Qur’an? I asked this question of our resident self-proclaimed Islam “expert” and her reply…well her reply is not suitable for printing here. Perhaps someone else can answer with less profanity and without labeling me a female dog. I didn’t know Muslims were allowed to curse like that!
1. 5:51 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily God guideth not a people unjust. Cont….
We (this is for us Muslims too) cannot just pull verses out of the Quran and say OK this is what I will do today cause I am mad at the world or do not like someone cause they do not follow my belief system.
A person would have to study Islam and the time period as to when the Prophet - received the verses (where he was at, what was going on at that time period, who where the people Allah is referring to, etc) to get an understanding as to their meaning and if they may or may not still be applied to the lives of Muslims today.
I am hoping since you have time to find verses in the Quran your intention is to increase your knowledge and not start something that is not going to bring some form of benefit to your understanding of our religion.

2. 5:72-73: They do blaspheme who say: "God is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship God, my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with God, - God will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help. They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.

3. 9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (trick in war for deceiving and outwitting the enemy); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them
