Walt Kelly (1913-1973) was a cartoonist who wrote "Pogo". Pogo paraphrased Commodore Perry's famous quote from the war of 1812, "...we have met the enemy, and he is ours…..."; In 1953, Pogo said, "...we have met the enemy, and he is us..."
Oliver Hazard Perry, after winning a bloody two hour engagement on September 10, 1813 between his squadron and a smaller British squadron on Lake Erie during the War of 1812, …wrote to his superior officer, General William Henry Harrison on the back of an old letter: "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Up to this point the Americans had been losing all the battles for control of the Great Lakes to the British, but with this success the tide turned. Thus this message became famous once the American public learned of it.

Yes. In Matthew 5v43-48 (NIV) says: 43 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who… persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
