... When we delve into the Islamic theological doctrine that the Prophet Muhammad had preached and propagated, it becomes the most difficult and unreasonable proposition for the Westerners. In the eyes of the Islamic doctrine, the Westerner who comprises of mainly of the Jews, Christians and nontheists, are labeled as Kafirs which means cruel, deceptive and hypocrite infidels/unbeliever [Koran 2:39]. The Westerners are the worst beast in the eyes of Allah [Koran 8:55]. The God of the Jews and Christians of the West are false who lead them to darkness [Koran 2:258]. Westerners are deceptive and liars [Koran 3:23] and wrongdoers [Koran 2:254 ]. The Western infidels must not be taken as friends and contacts must be avoided at all costs [Koran 3:28]. Muslims must not associate with their own kindred (son, parents and wives) if they don not believe in Allah [Koran 58:22] and such kindred are their enemies [Koran 64.14].

The Prophet Muhammad did not only propagate a derogatory and demeaning doctrine against the infidels, including those of the West, he also incited violence and ordered his followers to wage wars against the infidels. Muslims must fight the infidels, the minions of the devil [Koran 4:76]. Muslims must not take the infidels as friends and unless the latter offer peace, they must be killed wherever the Muslims find them [Koran 4:49, 4:91]. Muslims must fight the infidels with determination, they must not retreat in the fight and those who retreat will be condemned to the fire of hell [Koran 8:15-16]. Muslims must fight the infidels, they must not let the latter escape [Koran 8:59-60 ] and they must seek out, lay in wait to ambush, seize and slay the latter wherever found [Koran 9:5]. Muslims must fight the infidels whoever is near and show harshness to them [Koran 9:123]. They must fight the infidels in Allah's cause and in the process they will slay the infidels and be slain themselves [Koran 9:111] and if they refuse to fight the infidels, they will be afflicted with painful doom by Allah [Koran 9:39 ]. When Muslims meet the infidels, they must strike off the latter's heads, until they have made a great slaughter amongst the infidels [Koran 47:4]. In a nutshell, Muslims must fight, kill and slew infidels until the latter have submitted to Islam or subdued to the status of dhimmitude and humiliation and agree to pay Jizya taxes for not accepting Islam [ [Koran 09:05, Koran-9:29].

Those revealed verdicts of the Koran remains relevant for all time and are the cause for the Muslims failure to respect the Western cultures and assimilate in those societies. Same edicts also led them to mistreat and violate their non-Muslim minorities anywhere in the Muslim world. Muslim youths' tendency to rape the women in the Western countries also emanate from the standard set by the prophet with verdicts from the Koran. The series of rapes of white girls in a Sydney neighborhood by Lebanese youth in 2001 is one such example.

In the light of what the Prophet of Islam had preached against the infidels as eternal edicts, it is extremely unreasonable to expect that the people of Western Europe and non-Muslims in general would be able to show unqualified respect for such a man. Showing respect to him amounts to agreeing that the Western infidels are the worst beast, the wrongdoers, deceivers and liars, minions of devils and not worthy of keeping friendship with the Muslims. By showing unqualified respect to the Prophet, the Westerner agree that the Muslims should fight them, kill and slew until they become Muslims or are subdued to humiliation and dhimmitude and pay Jizyah taxes. By showing any respect to the prophet of Islam, the Western infidels agree that the Muslims should capture their women after they have been defeated and those women serve as sex-slaves to their Muslim captors.
