Fitna by Geert Wilders

I have read and heard people saying that Wilders has taken sentences out of context from the Qur'An. I have checked what are thought to be accurate translations by well-respected Islamic scholars and the wording of the texts quoted by Wilders is perfect. However, I am willing to be convinced. So, if someone can show me in what way these are taken out of context, ie., what the original intention was, if different, AND they can show me texts from the Qur'An which are comparable to Jesus teachings from The Sermon on The Mount, eg., "Love your neighbour," and "Love your enemy," then I may reconsider my opinion about the Qur'An being a book of hatred towards Jews and Christians.

Maybe someone could show me a quote from the Qur'An that expresses a similar sentiment to 1st Corinthians 13: "Faith, hope and Love, and the greatest of these is love." Note: this is not just referring to love for your fellow Jews or your fellow Christians. The love here is not qualified. So, is there such a text? Faith, hope and love for ALL of your fellow humans, totally unqualified as believers in Allah, just everyone? Please show me.
