Compare what the Koran says about warfare with what the UN tolerates

The basic principle in fighting in the Qur'an is that other communities should be treated as one's own. Fighting is justified for legitimate self-defense, to aid other Muslims and after a violation in the terms of a treaty, but should be stopped if these circumstances cease to exist. The principle of forgiveness is reiterated in between the assertions of the right to self-defense.

Does the Koran say anything about destabilising someone else's country and then invading/bombing them on the pretext of protecting the  human rights of the people whose countries you have destabilised, because you want to steal their oil?


Permission to take up arms is hereby given to those who are attacked because they have been oppressed – Allah indeed has power to grant them victory – those who have been unjustly driven from their homes, only because they said: “Our Lord is Allah”.
—Qur'an, [Quran 22:39

Nope, nothing here about invading other people's countries to effect regime change or saving  them from their oppressive rulers when all you want to do is steal their oil.

  1. Cursed is he that curseth his father or mother.
  2. Cursed is he that removeth his neighbour's land-mark.
  3. Cursed is he that maketh the blind to go out of his way.
  4. Cursed is he that perverteth the judgement of the stranger, the fatherless, and widow.
  5. Cursed is he that smiteth his neighbour secretly.
  6. Cursed is he that lieth with his neighbour's wife.
  7. Cursed is he that taketh reward to slay the innocent.
  8. Cursed is he that putteth his trust in man, and taketh man for his defence, and in his heart goeth from the Lord.
  9. Cursed are the unmerciful, fornicators, and adulterers, covetous persons, idolaters, slanderers, drunkards, and extortioners.
Mentioned at 9 sure does sound like us ....
