Justifying suicide bombings with scripture

I propose a thought experiment. What if a certain prophet of a certain religion said the following:

-He promotes conflict and violence
("Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace but a sword.")

-He wants all that do not follow him to be killed
("But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.";"...except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish.")

-He condones killing yourself for him
("He who has the desire to keep his life will have it taken from him, and he who gives up his life because of me will have it given back to him.")

Wouldn't you agree that it is obvious that he would be in favour of suicide bombings to promote his teachings and/or kill people who do not believe in him or that have insulted him?
By now you might have already guessed which major religion i'm talking about and although "moderate" followers will no doubt try to explain away this interpretation, there is no denying it:

Jesus loves suicide bombers!

Yes, i was talking about Jesus, not Mohammad. If you want to check out the quotes from the bible above, they are(from top to bottom): Matthew 10:34, Luke 19:27, Luke 13:3, Matthew 10:39

The problem with critics of Islam

They often forget that "we", as in the western countries, weren't much better until recently. Looking at how we were "converted", we should realise that not hostility and harsh judgement, but logic and education will eventually enlighten those we left in the dark.
