“Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits, for Allah does not love transgressors”. 2:190

“And slay them (the infidels) wherever you catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out, for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter”

2:191



“And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and Faith in Allah; but if they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression”. 2:193



“Fighting is prescribed for you, and you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not” 2:216



"Let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah, whether he is slain or gets victory soon shall we give him a reward of great (value)" 4:74



“Seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.” 4:89



"Allah has granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home "4:95



"Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly" 8:60



"O Prophet! rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the Unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding" 8:65



"Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you to victory over them, and heal the breasts of the Believers" 9:14



"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" 9:29



"Say: can you expect for us (and fate) other than one of two glorious things (martyrdom or victory)? But we can expect for you either that Allah will send his punishment (for not believing in Allah) from Himself, or by our hands. So wait (expectant); we too will wait with you" 9:52

The violence in the Quran is a drop in the bucket compared to the violence of the Old Testament.
 
Christians follow the New Testament not the Old Testament.

The Old Testament is foundational to the New Testament.

Besides, according to Christianity, Jesus IS the God of the Old Testament. So it was Jesus who commanded all those wars and genocides in the Old Testament.
 
The Old Testament was merely the shadow of the New Testament and Gods full revelation. The revelation of Gods will and nature was progressive over the centuries. The final revelation of God was made known through Jesus that said "love your enemies" and "those who live by the sword die by the sword".
Islam has not evolved into the higher moral code that Christianity has.
