Please accept my apology if I implied that I consider "Islam" a religion, it clearly is not. The political and legalistic aspects disqualify "Islam" as a religion. Muslims, as I understand it, emulate Mahamet,or Muhammed,or Mohammed as the model of behavior in social and political interactions. Your suggestion that My intent is to disregard religion is incorrect, I only disregard "Islam" as a political and legalistic model of societal organization. Hence the reference to the National Socialist Party, the international communist party, The Facist political party.

One need not consider "Islam" a religion at all, in fact the ploy is to deflect critical viewpoints as being racist, bigot, athiest, ad nauseum and equating robust critical dialogue as somehow immoral. As for the reference to Jesus of Nazereth, the philosopher carpenter, the message of " Love your neighbor os yourself" somehow seems a nigher moral position than "Submit or Die", don't you think?
