„Third we must not seek to defeat or humiliate the enemy but to win his friendship and understanding. At times we are able to humiliate our worst enemy.“

—  Martin Luther King, Jr. American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement 1929 - 1968
Context: Third we must not seek to defeat or humiliate the enemy but to win his friendship and understanding. At times we are able to humiliate our worst enemy. Inevitably, his weak moments come and we are able to thrust in his side the spear of defeat. But this we must not do. Every word and deed must contribute to an understanding with the enemy and release those vast reservoirs of goodwill which have been blocked by impenetrable walls of hate.

„If you kill your enemies, they win.“

—  Justin Trudeau 23rd Prime Minister of Canada; eldest son of Pierre Trudeau 1971
attributed by Miles McInnes of Rebel Media in 15 March 2016 video "Why Miles McInnes is moving back to Canada: Trudeau's 10 Greatest Quotes!" at 5m45s number 9/10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tpW1m-8yVQ&t=5m45s" (along with accompanying article by Gavin McCinnes “If you kill your enemies, they win”: Justin Trudeau’s greatest quotes! https://www.therebel.media/justin_trudeau_s_greatest_quotes released the same day)) then repeated by Daniel Greenfield of Canada Free Press in 31 March 2016 article " Surrendering to ISIS is the Only Way to Defeat It https://canadafreepress.com/article/surrendering-to-isis-is-the-only-way-to-defeat-it" this thread https://www.reddit.com/r/canada/comments/68iwe3/any_evidence_that_trudeau_said_if_you_kill_your/ questioning the veracity of the attribution was created in April 2017. No corroborating evidence was found to support the McCinnes brothers claim that Trudeau said this, yet many others have repeated it. Possibly a paraphrasing of Justin's February 2016 quote about elevating enemies.
