If correctly understood Religion bonds humans to unity, peace and justice; if not correctly understood it is the fault of the vested individuals not of the Religion itself. Right, please?

“Until there is no persecution and religion is wholly for Allah”

November 13, 2017

‘Ammar’s father, Yasir, and his mother, Sumayyah, also were tormented by
disbelievers. On one such occasion the Prophet happened to pass by. Filled with
emotion, he said, “Family of Yasir, bear up patiently, for God has prepared for you a Paradise.” The prophetic words were soon fulfilled. Yasir succumbed to the tortures, and a little later Abu Jahl murdered his aged wife, Sumayyah, with a spear.

Zinnirah, a woman slave, lost her eyes under the cruel treatment of disbelievers. Abu Fukayh, Safwan bin Umayyah’s slave, was laid on hot sand while over his chest were placed heavy and hot stones, under pain of which his tongue dropped out. Other slaves were mishandled in similar ways.”

Not sure how that is helping your case. Sure, spreading mischief in the land can mean persecution. It’s not clear what count and does not count as persecution. And it says to fight us until there is no persecution and religion is wholly for Allah right there, that’s the very opposite of peace.

Quran verse [8:40]* addresses the Meccans who were persecuting Muslims, had burnt their houses, tortured them physically, not allowing Muslims to pray in congregation as per their religion, Muhammad and his companions were boycotted and restricted to an area for three years, not even allowing them access to food and were forced to migrate leaving their properties and valuable behind:

“Most of these slave-converts remained steadfast in outer as well as inner
professions of faith. But some were weak. Once the Holy Prophet found ‘Ammar
groaning with pain and drying his tears. Approached by the Prophet, ‘Ammar said he had been beaten and compelled to recant. The Prophet asked him, “But did you believe at heart?” ‘Ammar declared that he did, and the Prophet said that God would forgive his weakness.

[8:39] Say to those who disbelieve, if they desist, that which is past will be forgiven them; and if they return thereto, then verily, the example of the former peoples has already gone before them.
*[8:40] And fight them until there is no persecution and religion is wholly for Allah. But if they desist, then surely Allah is Watchful of what they do.

“spreading mischief in the land” is “persecution” in the verse/s

Quran is clear that a person deriding or ridiculing religion or religious personalities is not to be killed as this subject is separately discussed:

[4:137] O ye who believe! believe in Allah and His Messenger, and in the Book which He has revealed to His Messenger, and the Book which He revealed before it. And whoso disbelieves in Allah and His angels, and His Books, and His Messengers, and the Last Day, has surely strayed far away.
[4:138] Those who believe, then disbelieve, then again believe, then disbelieve, and then increase in disbelief, Allah will never forgive them nor will He guide them to the way.
[4:139] Give to the hypocrites the tidings that for them is a grievous punishment,
[4:140] Those who take disbelievers for friends rather than believers. Do they seek honour at their hands? Then let them remember that all honour belongs to Allah.
[4:141] And He has already revealed to you in the Book that, when you hear the Signs of Allah being denied and mocked at, sit not with them until they engage in a talk other than that; for in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will assemble the hypocrites and the disbelievers in Hell, all together; 
https://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/showChapter.php?ch=4&verse=140

Those who deride religion or the religious personalities are not to be killed, their punishment is in the hereafter, not in this world. If there is going on a discussion/debate or dialogue or some other social meeting/activity, the Muslims are advised to temporarily suspend that process till such time they again become serious and refrain from their derision or ridicule spree/spell/mood.
Some people here also do such things, so I go a step backward and don’t respond to such derision or ridicule and resume that in some other-way so that they don’t indulged in it. Please
Regards

The cartoonists who persist on such acts as a matter of policy , however, could be tried in the courts if the remedy is available in the law of the land in the West, these days*.

It was the lawful and Godly act for the Police to arrest the cartoonist and to prosecute them and to put a stop to the cartoons.

Is there a complete list of countries where Islam spread by the sword?

Your sentence that I have coloured in magenta (in italics above) is not clear. Please elaborate.

G-d did not abandon Muhammad, he was successful in every field, and this is a clear and brilliant sign , as mentioned in Quran of his being a truthful prophet of G-d and the Meccan idolaters were wrong in not accepting him rather opposing him tooth and nail:

[58:21]Certainly those who oppose Allah and His Messenger will be among the lowest.
[58:22]Allah has decreed: ‘Most surely I will prevail, I and My Messengers.’ Verily, Allah is Powerful, Mighty.
http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/showChapter.php?ch=58&verse=21

And that is the open secret of Muhammad being successful.
Note: Nobody has yet provided a complete list with consensus of countries where Islam spread by sword as is commonly alleged superficially.
