People must respect other people's beliefs instead of insulting them and
provoking them by offending that which is sacred to them.
If you believe
people’s belief should be respected, please tell us how do you justify
Muhammad's bursting into Ka’ba and destroying the idols of the people
who believed in them?
Muhammad not only
insulted the un-believers and their sacred beliefs, he assaulted them,
killed them and forced his version of the truth on them.
In my school of
thought, beliefs do not deserve any respect. They must be confronted,
scrutinized and if found faulty, criticized and rejected. It's people
that must be respected.
I would respect the
rights of a Nazi but I would speak openly against his doctrine of hate.
I respect the rights Muslims to believe in their hateful doctrine that
calls for my death, but I cannot respect their religion that respects
nothing, not even human life. I will fight it until it is destroyed.
like the variety and believe in diversity. But I will fight
against Nazism, KKK, Islam and other doctrines of hate. The reason
I fight against them is because if we don’t destroy them, they will
destroy everything in their path and they will crush that very variety
that you and I cherish.
How can anyone justify
these hate-laden verses of the Quran? They are not even respectful of
right to choose or of their lives.

Muhammad was so
indolent towards the belief of the Quraish that some of their leaders
met with Abu Talib, Muhammad’s uncle and begged him to intercede and
refrain him from insulting their gods. They said:
This Nephew of thine hath spoken opprobriously of our gods and
our religion: and hath abused us as fools, and given out that our
forefathers were all astray. Now, avenge us thyself of our adversary;
or, (seeing that thou art in the same case with ourselves,) leave him to
it that we may take our satisfaction.
Abu Talib answered them softly and they parted. But as Muhammad’s
verbal abuse of their sacred belief did not diminish they went again to
Abu Talib in great exasperation; and added:
- “and now verily we cannot have patience any longer with
his abuse of us, our ancestors, and our gods, wherefore either do thou
hold him back from us, or thyself take part with him that the matter may
be decided between us.”
Katib al Waqidi, reports
that Abu Talib addressed the Prophet and told him “Verily thy people
ask of thee a reasonable thing, that thou leave off to abuse their gods,
and they will leave off to abuse thee and thy God." To whom he

my left, to force me from my undertaking, verily, I would not desist
therefrom- until the Lord made manifest my cause, or I perished in the
