In referring to verse 5:5 you stated "The above ayat clearly nullifies the possibility of Muslim women marrying Christian/Jew men even if they are chaste. It also clarifies that those who have chosen to believe in The Quran cannot be called people of the book."

I think it is a matter of perspective when it comes to verse 5:5. This verse is stating that two types of women are permissible to a believer: a chaste believing woman and a chaste woman from the people given the scripture before. In both of these cases the woman in question has to agree to marry the suitor as a woman can not be married against her will (4:19). So what is the decision making process for the woman?

It does not say in the Quran that the believing women can only accept believing men as suitors.

On your other comment that believers in the Quran can not be called the people of the Book. Certainly Jews, Christians, Hindus and others can call us people of the Book.
