Hmm, it seems you have not understood my point.

Please, from real Qur'anic verses, find me where it says those phrases.

If not, then I shall show you some Surahs (passages in the Qur'an) that I found on my own.

17:33: And do not take any human being's life - that God willed to be sacred - other than in [the pursuit of] justice.If one is killed unjustly, then we give his heir authority to enforce justice. Thus, he shall not exceed the limits in avenging the murder; he will be helped.

"O ye who believe!... [do not] kill yourselves, for truly Allah has been to you Most Merciful. If any do that in rancour and injustice, soon shall We cast him into the Fire..." (Qur'an 4:29-30).

If that's not enough, Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) strictly forbid harming innocent people, even in times of war.

I don't know what you'll have to say, Ynnatchkah, but apart from a debate, let's keep this friendly, for this is just a friendly debate between two people.

Thank you for responding, Ynnatchkah. :)
