Text from Brown Wall - (Islam and Judaism)

God does not forbid you to deal kindly and justly with those who have not fought against you because of your religion and who have not expelled you from your homes.
Quran 60:8

When my soldiers in great numbers peacefully entered Babylon I did not allow anyone to terrorize the people I kept in view the needs of people and all its sanctuaries to promote their well-being... Freed the slaves, I put an end to their misfortune and slavery...
Cyrus the Great
539 BCE

If it had thy Lord's will, hey would all have believed, all who are on earth! Wilt thou then compel mankind against their will to believe!

VIRTUES

God is attributeless.

God can be called "nothingness" because there is no "thingness." Differentiality has disappeared. From this state of unity, where there is no division, the universe unfolds.

Love is tempered by judgement; they must be balanced.

"Love your neighbor as yourself, Love Adonai your God, Because Adonai loved you, I have loved you."
Zohar, 165

Evil comes from God also. The demonic is rooted in the divine.

Divine presence is both transcendent and present in every part of Earth.

Doing good deeds honors God as much as prayer.

Everything we know or see emanates from God.

The goal of kabbalah is comprehension of Creator by all of his creations.

Annihilation of Thought is when human consciousness dissolves into the Infinite.

The Kabbalist works to overcome the barrier between the soul and the stream of cosmic life.

To understand kabbalism, one must rid oneself of material egoism and accept spiritual values as the only values.
