All these verses were in the context of war when Muslims were under attack of invaders .. A lot of people of jewish beliefs and christians beliefs had plans to kill the prophet Mohamed pbuh... so they had to fight back . we don't turn the other cheek because in todays' world this is perceived as weakness mr/mrs smartass .You want extreme.'There are a number of inconsistencies in the Koran'.

You want to talk about out of proportion, that's out of proportion.
This is how Islam defends it faith.
9:29 Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah,(2) nor in the Last Day,(3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
8:12 (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."
8:13 This is because they defied and disobeyed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever defies and disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then verily, Allah is Severe in punishment.
Those who disobey and don't go out to create a great slaughter should be struck across their necks. They've driven themselves to death under Islamic law.
8:16 And whoever turns his back to them on such a day - unless it be a stratagem of war, or to retreat to a troop (of his own),- he indeed has drawn upon himself wrath from Allah. And his abode is Hell, and worst indeed is that destination!
8:17 You killed them not, but Allah killed them. And you (Muhammad SAW) threw not when you did throw but Allah threw, that He might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
Under Islam, not slaughtering and enslaving non-believers is worthy of the death penalty. You want to talk about extreme, that's extreme.
Also, all these death penalties mean no sh*t . why? because anyone can change their beliefs in their heart no body will know. It's to stop the public out of proportion comments of those Islam leavers against Islam. They would not leave something peacefully , they will try to attack it just like you're doing now. And this is to protect the strong Islamic values in our societies.. whereas you guys lost a lot of it long time ago.
