Much as I despise Islam and consider it Satan's work, I actually have more respect, on a human level, for Muslims than I do for the filthy, venal, and slothful dhimmis in our own countries who do Islam's bidding by going after those who fairly criticize Islam. Our own people are doing this!!!
Muslims are being faithful to Ummah and Qur'an. On some level I can respect that, even if I consider them my enemy. Yes, one can and should respect one's enemies.
But I consider our Western dhimmis unworthy of respect. It is they who function as the Fifth Column for the Islamic jihad.
