Why are non-Muslims treated like dirt in Muslim countries -- it is not Muslims' fault -- they just follow their religion:

The Koran says:

""The unbelievers are like beasts which, call out to themas one may, can hear nothing but a shout and a cry. Deaf, dumb and blind, they understand nothing." (2:170)

"As for the unbelievers, it is the same whether or not you forewarn them; theywill not have faith. God has set a seal upon their hearts and ears; their sight is dimmed and grievous punishment awaits them." (2:6-7)

"Those that deny our revelations We will burn in fire. No sooner will their skins be consumed than We shall give them other skins, so that they may truly taste the scourge. God is mighty and wise. (4:56)

The 'Compassionate and merciful God' seems to take great pleasure in torture of those whose hearts He himself had sealed and deny His revelations.
