Most verses that people think are to promote violence are actually quoted in historical events for that occasion or time. For example during the war the incidents and at that time whoever said what . It does not apply for the rest of universal life. Even in biblical times the cruelty was at extreme but it is not a lesson for today.
When people were against Moses, or Jesus or Mohamed it is in those incidents at that time what ever happened or was said. There are clear messages of peace too. Please quote those too.

Religion is what you make of it within your heart. Most religious books are full of history incidents and rituals of that time.
I am a muslim and my heart cries at any cruelty or killings of any faith or religion. I dont care what any religion quotes as history but I don't want to see any Jewish, Christian, muslim American or anyone killed by anyone else. Life is precious, Lets respect it and not hurt any human being on earth. Lets not repeat history.
