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.

I 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 the people’s right to choose or of  their lives.

 9:123 Oh ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers and let them find harshness in you.

9: 5  Slay the idolaters wherever you find them

9: 29 Fight those who do not believe in God and the last day... and fight People of the Book, who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute by hand, being inferior

3: 85 Whoso desires another religion than Islam, it shall not be accepted of him; in the next world he shall be among the losers.

 5: 11 And as for those who disbelieve and reject Our Signs, they are the people of Hell"

 9: 28  O you who believe! Verily, the Mushrikűn (unbeleivers) are Najasun (impure). So let them not come near Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah) after this year, …

 2: 193 Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah”

 22: 19“As for the unbelievers for them garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowls and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods. “

 9: 23 O ye who believe! take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love Infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong.

 25: 52 So obey not the disbelievers, but strive against them herewith with a great endeavor.

  66: 9O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end.

 47: 4 When you meet the unbelievers, strike off their heads; then when you have made wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives. 

 3: 28 Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah. except by way of precaution, that ye may guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (to fear) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.   

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 responded “- if they brought the Sun to my right hand, and the Moon to 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 attempt.
