Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Loving One's Enemies to Counter Islamic Infiltration

There's always the paranoia that Muslim refugees may be infiltrators.  I can agree in part that it may be part of the infiltration plan.  It becomes a problem when people think too much about the infiltration than the initiative of preaching the Gospel to Muslim refugees.  While you can't be too sure it's part of ISIS' plan for world domination but one thing is certain they are part of the mission field.

It's no doubt that Muslims are indeed enemies of Christians.  But what did Jesus tell His followers on how to deal with their enemies?  The Bible offers this advice to how Christians should deal with infidels:
Leviticus 19:18 says, "Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD." 
Proverbs 25:21-22 says, "If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: for thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee." 
Matthew 5:44 says, "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;"  
Romans 12:19-21 - "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.  Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

It can't be denied that Islam indeed has caused a lot of trouble for world peace.  ISIS and other Muslim militant extremists are persecuting Christians as well at a daily basis.  They have continued to curse Christians and shown their hatred.  But the Bible just keeps telling Christians not to take revenge on those who hurt them, to show kindness to those who least deserve it and to pray for their persecutors as Jesus had told them.

Would killing Muslim terrorists be a solution?  It wouldn't because the demons inside the bodies of unsaved Muslim terrorists will just look for someone else to use.  That's because the demons don't go to Hell with the unsaved person.  After the death of Osama bin Ladin and the weakening of Al Qaida came the more brutal ISIS.  Instead, it has always been about preaching to them the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
