Here are some solid arguments from anti-Islamics as to why they do not like the Qur'an

Here are some solid arguments from anti-Islamics as to why they do not like the Qur'an:
- Qur'an ensures Justice in this world and in the hereafter (4:135, 5:8, 4:58, 57:25, 39:69-70, 40:17, 21:47, 36:54, 2:281, 7:29, 16:111, 17:13-15, 20:134-135, 4:123). But we don't like Justice, as we are a bunch of criminals!
- Qur'an strongly condemns (female) infanticide (16:58-59, 81:8-9, 6:137, 6:140, 6:151, 17:31). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of killers of our infants! 
- Qur'an strongly opposes terrorists and oppressors (4:75, 22:39-40, 9:13-14, 42:39-43, 38:28, 2:190-193). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of terrorists and oppressors!
- Qur'an strongly condemns unjust killing and suicide (5:32, 2:195, 4:29-30, 4:92-93, 17:31, 17:33, 6:151, 25:68, 3:21). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of killers and potential suicide bombers!
- Qur'an teaches self-defense and tolerance (60:7-9, 2:190, 6:107-8, 6:68, 49:11, 39:3, 16:126-128, 73:10, 19:46-47). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of aggressor and intolerant persons!
- Qur'an teaches that Islam is for everyone (2:62, 22:17, 21:107, 2:111-112, 5:69, 34:28, 103:1-3, 22:67, 10:47, 35:24, 16:36, 68:52, 49:13, 4:1, 2:213, 10:19, 17:70). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of racist, nationalist, and communal minded persons!
- Qur'an offers freedom-of-faith (10:108, 6:104, 10:99, 39:41, 11:121, 73:19, 43:88-89, 2:272, 76:29, 18:29, 42:48, 76:3, 3:20, 88:21-22), freedom-of-religion (2:256, 109:6, 22:67-69, 42:15, 10:41, 2:139, 42:6), and freedom-of-freethinking (15:3, 17:84, 6:110, 10:11, 11:121, 52:45). But we don't like too much freedom, you know!
- Qur'an is the only non-Jewish scripture in the world where Jews have been honored and protected in so many places (2:40, 2:47-52, 2:57-58, 5:20, 5:44, 10:47, 10:90-93, 14:6, 17:2-3, 20:47-52, 20:77-80, 44:30-32, 45:16), good Jews have been praised with respect and they have also been offered salvation if they follow the true teachings of their own scriptures (2:62, 2:121-122, 3:113-115, 3:199, 5:12, 5:65-66, 5:69, 29:46). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of Jew hater; although we love Zionist terrorists and killers! 
- Qur'an is the only non-Christian scripture in the world where Jesus and Mary have been honored with very high regard (3:42-55, 5:44-46, 5:110, 43:59, Chapter 19 on Mary), good Christians have been praised with respect and they have also been offered salvation if they follow the true teachings of their own scriptures (2:62, 2:121-122, 3:113-115, 3:199, 5:65-66, 5:69, 5:82, 29:46). But we don't like it, as we hate Jesus, Mary, and good Christians; although we love Christian terrorists and killers!
- Unlike Bible that prescribes death penalty for idolatry and polytheism (Deuteronomy 17:3-5, 13:6-15; 2 Chronicles 15:13), Qur'an doesn't have any temporal punishment for the same (22:17, 6:107-8, 22:67-69, 17:84, 49:11, 4:48). But we don't like it, as we want to kill all the idolaters and polytheists!
- Qur'an teaches love, mercy, kindness, and forgiveness (1:1-2, 85:14, 21:107, 60:7, 4:17, 7:199, 39:53, 16:119, 3:159, 15:85, 16:119, 19:96, 2:160, 2:163, 4:27-28). But we don't like these kinds of teachings, you know!
- Qur'an gives equal status (as human) and rights to men and women (4:1, 4:7, 4:124, 3:195, 16:97, 33:35, 49:13). But we don't like it, as we don't believe in equality!  
- Qur'an strongly condemns priesthood and religious peddlers (2:41, 2:79, 5:44, 3:187, 9:9, 9:31, 9:34, 2:174, 12:104). But we don't like it, as we are a bunch of religious peddlers! 
- Qur'an gives rights to orphans, needy, and widows (2:177, 2:115, 2:220, 2:240-241, 4:2, 4:8, 4:10, 4:36, 9:60, 17:26, 93:9-10, 89:17-18, 107:1-3). But we don't like these kinds of poor and vulnerable people, you know! 
- Qur'an teaches to give charity to poor and needy (2:43, 2:177, 2:277). But we don't want to spend anything for them, as we will not get any return!

- Qur'an teaches that widow can re-marry, if she wishes (2:234-240). But we don't like it, as we want to burn her alive!
- Qur'an teaches that divorced woman can re-marry, if she wishes (2:229, 2:232). But we don't like it, as we want to keep her in prison!
- Qur'an teaches to be kind, helpful, and respectful to your parents (29:8, 17:23, 46:15, 19:14, 6:151, 4:36, 2:215, 2:83, 71:28). But we don't like it!
