Obama: "No god condones this terror". Except Islam does...

Obama spoke at the UN General Assembly today and said, in his best and fluent Teleprompter-ese: "No god condones this terror" (0:47' in the embedded video).
Only that's not true.  Allah, Islam's god, surely does condone terror and violence against "unbelievers""
“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” (Koran 8:12).
“When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful.” (Koran 9:5)
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth.” (Koran 9:29).
I understand why Obama feels he has to speak this way. Nevertheless, it's not true.  And until that truth is faced and countered, there can be no victory in the fight against what Obama has called the "Network of Terror".
