Is striving and fighting against people of a different faith seen as something that is basically good?

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

Galatians 5:19-21 – 19. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these... 20. hatred, strife, jealousy, wrath, factions, seditions… 21. envyings, murders… and such like… they who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

James 4:1 & 81 – From where come wars and fightings among you? Come they not here, even of your lusts?... 8. Cleanse your hands ye sinners…

Tebve 9:41 – Go forth, whether light or heavy, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah. That is better for you, if you only knew.

Al-'Ankabut 29:6 – And whoever strives only strives for (the benefit of) himself.

As-Saf 61:11 – O you who have believed... strive in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives. That is better for you if you should know.
