You don't know if your knowledge about Islam is right or wrong. How can you know
your bounds of knowledge?

In a single sentence; retaliating always war with always peace not Islamic. War
must not necessarily be with weapons and arms.

Quran offers every non-Muslim to read and understand it in his own way. If you
study it deeply without any prior knowledge you'll still feel every verse of
Quran inside yourself.

I don't know if there is any. Has Iran ever attacked any country or showed
military aggression against any country?

You are still not getting my point or refusing to get it.
