Because of religion they will kill each other. When Jesus returns to the Earth the only ones dying will be the true unbelievers and rebels against God Himself. He will have the final say. The payment of sin is death. So it doesn't matter who's religion is right if all you're doing is killing. This is not what Jesus taught. Jesus taught that God is Judge and we get to decide what our fate will be by our love, or lack of it.

here's a list of the crimes that you can be put to death for in the bible, with citation, though some of it was just mentioned in my last post.
the death penalty:
"And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death." -- Lev.20:10
"Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death." -- Ex.22:19
"And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast." -- Lev.20:15
"And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." -- Lev.20:16
"He that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him." -- Lev.24:16

The Canaanite massacre is horrible at first view, but you need to see the context of what happened. Amalek and his people were sentenced for destruction because Amalek decided to target Women,children, and the elderly in Battle instead of soldiers. This for obvious reasons outraged God (that the man would actually take advantage of superior military might to target the weak, and use proxy goverment to incite Genocide). Thus he was punished, but it doesn't end there, no it definitely doesn't. The Amalekites worshipped Moloch (that's actually Melqart, there's a complicated reason why this idol is given the name Moloch in scriptures) and part of this religion was to roast babies in huge pyres (note: they didn't just "pass" the children in the fire, they actually killed them). Cultic prostitution was also part of Canaanite religion. Pedophilia as well. From the point of view of God he was saving the young from a horrible fate in this society. Also Amalek would have destroyed the Messianic line putting all of humanity in danger (and spreading Canaanite custom in the heart of civilization). So there are reasons for everything, even this.
