The Crusaders who slaughtered their way to Jerusalem in 1099 were as Christian as the Christians of the Renaissance and of today. Hisham Melhem
On the top of Solomon's Temple, to which they had climbed in fleeing, many were shot to death with arrows and cast down headlong from the roof. Within the temple about 10,000 were beheaded. If you had been there, your feet would have been stained up to the ankles with the blood of the slain. Not one of them was allowed to live. They did not spare the women or children. Fulcher of Chartres
If the British give Jinnah his own country, we won't leave a Moslem alive here [of the princely state of Patiala]. Nor in the districts around. Every Sikh will draw his kirpan and it will be "Death to all Moslems". Yadvinder Singh Mahendra Bahadur
I certainly do recall how I felt when the atomic bombs were used. My brother-in-law was captain of the first minesweeper scheduled into Sasebo Harbor. My brother was a Marine, with a flame thrower, on Okinawa. I'm sure these people would not have lasted in an invasion. It was pretty clear the war would continue, with half a million of our fighting men dead not to say how many Japanese. You know and I know that General [Curtis] LeMay firebombed Tokyo and nobody even mentions the slaughter that happened then. Leona Marshall Libby
I advocate firm action against those of His Majesty’s subjects who have exterminated whole tribes of blacks. Andries Stockenstrom
The British nation will never consent either to allow the emigrants, to perish from want or the sword, or to permit them to attack and slaughter the natives of the countries they invade. George Thomas Napier
The destructiveness of war waged on the scale and with the intensity which conscript armies, the new means of transportation and communication, the new artillery, the aeroplanes, the high explosives, and the continuity of the fighting on battle fronts of unexampled length, by night as well as by day, and in stormy and wintry as well as moderate weather, make possible, has proved to be beyond all power of computation, and could not have been imagined in advance. Never before has there been any approach to the vast killing and crippling of men, the destruction of all sorts of man's structures—buildings, bridges, viaducts, vessels, and docks—and the physical ruin of countless women and children. Charles W. Eliot
I did what I was supposed to do. Pedro Menendez de Aviles
Up! Children of Zulu, your day has come. Up! and destroy them all. Shaka Zulu
The war [WWI] has lasted more than a year. Millions of corpses cover the battlefields. Millions of human beings have been crippled for the rest of their lives. Europe is like a gigantic human slaughterhouse. All civilization, created by the labor of many generations, is doomed to destruction. The most savage barbarism is today celebrating its triumph over all that hitherto constituted the pride of humanity International Socialist Conference
The Bolshevik Smidovich gave a written promise to spare the lives of those Junkers who surrendered, and then allowed the prisoners to be beaten to death one by one. … General Dukhonin surrendered to Krylenko, who in turn offered Dukhonin no protection as he was torn limb from limb before his very eyes. The murderers remained unpunished. Julius Martov; Yuliy Osipovich Tsederbaum
Don't let's talk of national honor: what do such phrases mean? The plain fact is that war means the slaughter of millions. If the Prime Minister can still maintain the peace he will have saved those lives, he mustn't be rushed. James Maxton
He defeated the Americans with great slaughter. Charles Cornwallis
I was like a lamb that is led to the slaughter. Book of Jeremiah
Are there not other alternatives than sending our armies to chew barbed wire in Flanders. No doubt several hundred thousand men will be spent to satisfy the military mind in the point. Winston Churchill
The barbarian nation of the Huns, became so great that more than a hundred cities were captured. There were so many murders and blood-lettings that the dead could not be numbered. Callinicus
One hundred thousand infidels, impious idolaters, were on that day slain. Maulana Nasiruddin Umar, a counselor and man of learning, who, in all his life, had never killed a sparrow, now, in execution of my order, slew with his sword fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives....on the great day of battle these 100,000 prisoners could not be left with the baggage, and that it would be entirely opposed to the rules of war to set these idolaters and enemies of Islam at other course remained but that of making them all food for the sword. Tamerlane

If we do not act now, we will become spectators to slaughter. John Kerry
Alawites are more infidel than Jews and Christians, even more infidel than many polytheists. Good Moslems should rob and slaughter them Ibn Taymiyya
To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false pretenses, they call empire and where they make a desert they call it peace. Cornelius Tacitus
So that true Christians can serve God, the Father, without hindrance, The Father demands the purification and the cleansing of his new Jerusalem. Our republic cannot tolerate the confusion sewn by impious sects. I advise that we slaughter without delay the Catholics and Lutherans and all those who are not of the right faith. None may remain alive in Zion, but those who offer the Father a pure and pleasing worship … the only way to protect the pious from the impure is to sweep the impure from the face of the earth. Jan Mathias
Everywhere we are surrounded by dogs and sorcerers and whores and the Godless and all who love lies and commit them. Jan Mathias
Every book in the City other than the Bible shall be burned.. Jan Mathias
Hubert, the blacksmith here has been led terribly astray by an evil spirit, reaching such a pitch of madness that in public, he dared to despise the Prophet [Mathias himself] sent to you for your salvation—to revile him with unspeakable bitter and scurrilous jibes. From this it is clear that he is an impious disturber of the general peace. This man must be quashed, to be removed from the pious, to be pulled up by the roots Jan Mathias
