Learn Islam and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) not from Jewish or Christian sources, which are interpreted as they are prohibited from being used, but from Muslim (eg Koran), and then, perhaps, you will enlighten on this issue.

That’s exactly what I did. First of all, I read the Qur’an.
The main thing that struck me was the lack of a moral code in the Qur’an, like the Ten Commandments of the Torah, and the morality that Jesus explained. Instead, Muhammad calls on believers to rely only on Allah and on himself, Muhammad.
But Muhammad repeatedly stressed that he is a man, not God. Consequently, he could make mistakes and commit sinful deeds. How may you know, when Muslims try to repeat such actions of Muhammad as the expulsion of Jews from Arabia, or put women in an unequal position, or try to establish the World Caliphate through jihad, maybe they sin after their prophet? Muslims have not yet proved that their faith is better than all other beliefs, instead they are already trying to impose Islam through jihad.
I believe that Muslims have a duty to all mankind — to improve their teaching, and first of all, to give respect for people who profess other views. If Islam is corrected in a such way, then jihad and violence will become unnecessary. Perhaps all of humanity will voluntarily turn to such a corrected Islam.
I do not deny that Muslims offer an alternative to morally disintegrated «modern society». But so far this alternative is far from perfect, it is better to stay with old beliefs, and to revive the universal morality without Islam.
