I am a muslim i have never been taught to hate any one , not by my parents nor by my holy quran in fact nothing could be further from the truth the quran teaches you to respect and tolerate , certainly not hate . What the quran does teach is that evryone has a duty to stand up to oppression and thats what a small minority of muslims are doing . Can u really criticise them for this standing up for their own rights in the only way they can . I say respect to them and i hope my faith will guide me to aid them in this cause . I also hope for , believe in and look forward to the day when a majority of muslims unite with this minority and i assure this day is inshallah coming soon .
