Over 100 verses in the Quran suggest imperialistic conquest and violence against non-Muslims. For example:

Sura 8:12 I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them

Islamic fundamentalists well understand:

In Indonesia three teenage girls were beheaded on their way to their Christian school and one head left on the steps of a Church.  The note left behind reads:  "We will murder 100 more Christian teenagers and their heads will be presented as presents."

From the plunder of the first caravan, the First Jihad was financed by property stolen from others. Chapter 8 of the Quran titled "Spoils of War, Booty" details the disposition of stolen property, including Mohammed's 1/5 share.

Sura 8:41 And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things.

Indeed the stolen property of others was to be enjoyed by all.

Sura 8:69 But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good: but fear Allah: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

What are some of those spoils?

Sura 33:50 O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

So part of the booty of imperialistic conquest includes the pressing of captives into sexual slavery. For this not to be considered an act of rape would necessitate that these captured women desired to be in the sexual service of their captors.

It doesn't end there:

Sura 24:33: Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which Allah has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is Allah, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),

So when your maid does not desire chastity you can pimp her out and make a little cash! Perhaps split it with her the first time to encourage her to abandon her chastity.
But then even if your force them, Allah is forgiving! How convenient.

In summary we have the murder, pillage and plunder of imperialistic conquest, with beheading and cutting the fingertips off unbelievers - because they are unbelievers - theft of the property of other's, rape and sexual enslavement of women taken as spoils of conquest, and prostituting those female slaves for profit.

With that kind of value placed on women in Islam it's no wonder that there are thousands of women murdered every year in Islamic so-called "honor killings" including here in the U.S.
Sura 2:223 your wives are as tilth (farmland) unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will; but do some good act for your souls beforehand; and fear Allah. And know that ye are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these) good tidings to those who believe.

Can this be the book of a good God of love, or is it more like the opposite?

From the Hadith: Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!

"Shirk" manifest specifically as God has no Son is the most important fundamental in Islam.

Sura 9:30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

From God's Word:

1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Islam is the OPPOSITE of Christianity.

Founded as perhaps the only anti-religion religion, other than Satanism:

Sura 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-

Is the Islamic Second Jihad so different than the first? Is it really nothing more than "striving" as the western liberal Muslims - who middle eastern Muslims consider apostate - characterize it?

"Once again, women are the targets. In mid-March, rebels assaulted three women gathering firewood and cut off their ears, lips, and breasts."  

"Starting in 2003, Janjaweed Arabs, a Sudan-backed militia, have driven 2 million villagers from their homes in ethnic-cleansing attacks designed to suppress local rebels."

"Eyewitness accounts detailing the militia attacks are horrifying. 'They killed my 3-year-old son right in front of my eyes,' one father from West Darfur said. Since last fall, women have reported more than 500 rapes. Three women said five militiamen beat and raped them last August. The women said, 'After they abused us, they told us that now we would have Arab babies. And, if they would find any [more] women, they would rape them again to change the color of their children.'"

The Islamic Second Jihad is the image of the First Jihad, with 2 million slain in the Sudan alone, and more bombs going off in India as part of the latest. No surprise that Islam seeks to conquer the kingdoms of the world since these kingdoms have been Satan's legal property ever since Adam's fall.

Don't be fooled by those that pretend that the world-wide slaughter of non-Muslims has anything whatsoever to do with Zionism. The Israelis are the only democracy in the middle east, and the only free people that share our western values.

Islam has been at war against the non-Islamic world for 1400 years. It's the same division of the world into the dar el salaam or house of peace of Islam and the dar el harb or house of war, that Islam has been at war against, since it's inception.
