There are four questions that need to be answered :

If Islam is respectful of other faiths, why is it that the Church of the Nativity was invaded and with those who take care of that Christian shrine held hostage for a couple of weeks? When it was all over, it was left in a mess.

If Islam is respectful of other faiths, why do Arab newspapers print cartoons demeaning of Jews and of Israel? I have seen a few and they are very horrible.

If Islam is respectful of other faiths, why did the Taliban destroy ancient statues of the Buddha? There was never any protest on the statue's distruction

If Islam is respectful of other faiths, why is it that to this very day, why is there is still fighting over land between Hindu India and Muslim Pakastan called the Kashmer?

Respect is a two-way street.
