What you are mistaken in is that this isn't about racism at all.

We aren't against blacks, whites, azian, etc...

We are against a belief that is as harmful to our way of life as that Nazis, communism and despotism possibly was in the past.

So, this isn't about racism, this is about belief and where the liberty of 1 person ends and the liberty of the next starts.

When I believe (hypothetically) that, everyone are infidels when they do not share my ideals and should be raped, robbed or killed for it, what am I then?

The most intolerant person alive?

Then what are muslims/Islam followers who's own scriptures claim this to be just for them to do to all that to those that aren't sharing there faith...

Perhaps Islam it self is as racist as it can be, or rather as intolerant as one could believe a faith could ever become.

Then would you offer your hand in understanding to living right-wing extremists, who can according to their faith, lie to you in your face because you are an infidel?
