People who would make your argument are the exact same kind of people who read Matthew 6:6 and then say that Jesus commanded us to not pray in public.

Again, you are welcome to educate me.

I wonder what Jesus would have said about the Israelites slaying Canaanites in the Old Testament. Would he have approved?

I think so!

Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

2Kings 19:34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake. 35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

It does seem that God (and all Christians agree that Jesus is God) does use war to destroy his enemies. So I do not think you can say Jesus is a pacifist.
