An infidel is not a nice thing to call yourself or others, whether or not out of jest.

I see infidels are those who have declared war on God and those who obey Him in the true sense.

A fundamentalist Muslim might call you an infidel. (S)he might even go as far as to call yours truly an infidel for not standing up for my "brothers" and "sisters".

What fundamentalist Muslims don't seem to realize is that they themselves could be considered to be "infidels" for having destroyed Islam from within with their ignorant, intolerant and violent ways.

I may not see you as a Muslim, but unless you try to kill me or Muslims like myself who wish you no harm, I will not see you as an infidel.
