Saying, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace.

I have quoted the Qur'an; This is from the Old Testament:
13 For from the least to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for unjust gain; and from prophet to priest, everyone deals falsely.

14 They have treated the wound of my people carelessly, saying, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace.

15 They acted shamefully, they committed abomination; yet they were not ashamed, they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown, says the Lord.

16 Thus says the Lord: Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, “We will not walk in it.”

17 Also I raised up sentinels for you: “Give heed to the sound of the trumpet!” But they said, “We will not give heed.”
Jeremiah 6.

The Qur'an reminds muslims NOT to seek peace when they are strong and in a position of power. Seeking peace is a sign of weakness. Muslims however are obliged to seek peace when they are a minority,militarily and financially weak.

Quran 47:35
So do not weaken and call for peace while you are superior; and Allah is with you and will never deprive you of [the reward of] your deeds.
