Question # 3 : Why do Muslims wage war or quarrel against each other when it is said to be a religion of peace? Between politicians, neighbors or even between family members? If Islam is truly good, surely Muslims wouldn't be squabbling amongst themselves but unite as one?

My answer :
Such assumptions betray the questioner's failure to take a look at his or her own community's shortcomings. Why do I say that?
Study history. Look deeply into the history books and see for your own self's the records of all tribes and nations of this whole wide world.
Are those who are not Muslims peaceful and minding their own businesses as far as the subject of waging war against one's own people is concerned?
I'd be spending days and weeks if not months or even years if I am to compile the uncountable numbers of wars and in fighting amongst those who weren't or aren't Muslims in response.
He or she who asks these questions would do better to take note that the non Muslims outnumber those of us who are Believers in Almighty Allah almost 5 or 6 to 1.
Study the history of the Romans, Greeks, Persians, Chinese, Europeans, Mongols, etc.
Didn't they go down in history as those who slaughtered hundreds of millions of their own kind and from the same faiths in their quest for dominion over others?
Compared to the Muslims of this world, we pale in comparison to those bloodthirsty hordes of before!
Even to this day, who commits more massacres compared to the ones said to be 'Muslims'?
Doesn't the United States of America and Britain combined with the evil forces of Europe hold the record for massacring more numbers of Muslims than the warring tribes of the Middle East themselves?
Before you accuse the Muslims of such crimes, please be fair and take off those blinkered goggles you use to stifle and block your mind views when you tend to zero in on the Muslims affairs?
There is not one nation on Earth which is absolutely free from what you accuse only the Muslims of?
I would like to point out that Islam is perfectly and absolutely good.
It is us who call ourselves as Muslims who need to buck up and really truly strive to see to it that Islam is put to practice in the real sense of the word as Almighty Allah our Supreme Creator has commanded us to!
Right now, there is not a Muslim nation that is doing exactly that and in refusing to do so, has caused us to suffer the consequences as foretold and prophesied by Allah's Final Messenger, the Blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.
That concludes my answers to Question # 3.
Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah.
