Is it justifiable for muslims to fight against non-muslims?

Reader comment on item: Claiming Jerusalem is in the Koran

Israel has been found favour by Allah and yet muslims have fought against them in the past:
Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #40, "O Children of ISRAEL! Remember My Favour which I bestowed upon you..."
Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #47, "O Children of ISRAEL!..."
Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #122, "O Children of ISRAEL! Remember My Favour which I bestowed upon you and that I preferred you to the 'Alamin [mankind and jinn (of your time-period, in the past)]."

The paragraph below even conveys the message that Allah even ordained children of Israel not to do this or that:
Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #32, "Because of that We ordained for the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind..."

The above verses show that Allah was not against Israel. A question has to be raised: Should muslims be against non-muslim people?
