Does the Koran really say Jews and Christians should be killed?

They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks. . . Surah 4:89

If Jews and Christians reject Islam, this says to capture them and kill them, wherever they are.

O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination. Surah 9:73

Strive means fight, attack, resist, put pressure on those who don’t believe or those who say they believe, but don’t.

O you who have been given the Book! believe that which We have revealed, verifying what you have, before We alter faces then turn them on their backs, or curse them as We cursed the violaters of the Sabbath, and the command of Allah shall be executed. Surah 4:47

The Koran believes Jews & Christians were originally given the true message or the Book then lied about its contents. They are to be cursed.

It is He Who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the Book from their homes at the first gathering (of the forces). Little did ye think that they would get out: And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah. But the (Wrath of) Allah came to them from quarters from which they little expected (it), and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers, take warning, then, O ye with eyes (to see)! And had it not been that Allah had decreed banishment for them, He would certainly have punished them in this world: And in the Hereafter they shall (certainly) have the Punishment of the Fire. That is because they resisted Allah and His Messenger. and if any one resists Allah, verily Allah is severe in Punishment. Surah 59:2-4

This says to remove Jews and Christians from their homes, terrorize them, destroy their homes, banish and punish them.

Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book and the polytheists shall be in the fire of hell, abiding therein; they are the worst of men. Surah 98:6

While the Koran once tells Muslims to embrace the People of the Book (the Christians), it later calls them to be executed, destroyed, banished, punished and sent to Hell. They are called the worst of men.

This is an  inconsistent message throughout the Koran.
