Is this agressive Islam hatred turned to victimhood? One needs to point out a few things:

  • The founder of the Christian Faith does NOT instruct his followers to kill those who do not believe. Islam does!
  • An equivalent term for "Kafir", a perjorative Islamic term for 2/3 of humanity, does not exist in Western Society, (though the term "rag head" might serve as a crude counter-equivalent).
  • We do not strive to roll back human society a thousand years to where women are intentionally not educated, beaten, and treated as breeding cows. Nor do we wish to maintain the institution of human slavery. Islam does.
  • Christians are taught that a moral person is honest and deals truthfully with all men. Islam teaches that anything that furthers the cause of Islam is moral, even if it means "deceiving the Kafirs".

Therefore, "hate" is not the proper term: a better term is growing distrust..
