Who's promoting hatred?

Reader comment on item: Jerusalem Falls to British, "Great Rejoicing in the Christian World"
in response to reader comment: why rejoice?

Amir, I'm intrigued by your comment. Are you saying that the Muslim world does view the synthesis of ideas as honorable? If so, where's the proof in that statement? If we are saying that they are intolerant of other ideas, we are not promoting hatred, only observing hatred in them. What are your thoughts: is it honorable for Muslims to accept ideas that contradict their own? If so, show some proof for it. Otherwise, the overwhelming majority of observations, especially in regard to Israel, would seem to indicate the opposite.
