Many Christians are deceived by muslims in the west. The problem is they do not know what islam teaches about how they should treat Christians in islamic lands. We should remember what Christians did with mohamed when he asked for their help. Mohamed sent a group of refugees to "Al Habasha" Ethiopia where a Christian king ruled. The king welcomed them and was very courteous to them, but after mohamed came into power, he forgot the generosity of the King . We can see how mohamed treated Christians, look at surate 9 the verse 29 in quran which says
Fight those who believe not in allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that which hath been forbidden by allah and his messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued)
This verse means that muslims should fight all who do not believe in allah. The “people of the book” refers to Christians and Jews whom have to pay al Jizya and they have to pay it subdued meaning; they have to feel humiliated, insulted.
If the Christians do not pay al Jizya, they will be killed. So, al jizya is money that Christians and Jewish pay to muslim authority to be safe, and muslims now try to deceive the west by saying it is a tax. There is no such tax in the entire world to pay for your life. A tax that if you cannot pay, you pay with your life. muslims will also tell you this verse is only applies in time of war but the islam teaching about quran is for all time and all places because it is the word of allah. So the word of allah is regarded to be forever and not limited by a circumstance or by a time or a place.
Muslims now try to modernize Islam and show to the west that islam respects other religions. How does forcing others to pay tax for their belief or die, show respect?
I will show you the reason why muslims are taught not to respect Christians directly from the quran in surate 8:12 (Remember thy Lord (satan, islams god) inspired the angels(demons) (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers(muslims): I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers( non muslims): smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips off them.) This verse orders muslims to kill unbelievers. In Arabic the word “unbelievers” is "aladena kafaru" and it means those who blaspheme.
We can see in another verse that Christians are blasphemous, according to islam. In 5:17: (In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Al-Masih the son of Maryam. Say: "Who then hath the least power against Allah, if His Will were to destroy Al-Masih the son of Maryam, his mother, and all, everyone that is on the earth? For to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth. For Allah hath power over all things.) This verse shows that Christians should not be treated with respect in islam.
To prove that muslims should subdue and humiliate Christians and Jews,there is The Pact of Umar the great Khalifa (ruler in islam authority).This is what the pact says;“We heard from 'Abd al-Rahman ibn Ghanam [died 78/697] as follows: When mar ibn al-Khattab, may God be pleased with him, accorded a peace to the Christians of Syria, we wrote to him as follows:
In the name of God( the God of islam), the Merciful and Compassionate. This is a letter to the servant of God, Umar [ibn al-Khattab], Commander of the Faithful, from the Christians of such-and-such a city. When you came against us, we asked you for safe-conduct (aman) for ourselves, our descendants, our property, and the people of our community, and we undertook the following obligations toward you:
Christians have to follow theses rules and regulations in muslim countries:
-We shall not build, in our cities or in their neighborhood, new monasteries, Churches, convents, or monks' cells, nor shall we repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims.
-We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.
-We shall not give shelter in our churches or in our dwellings to any spy, nor bide him from the Muslims.
-We shall not teach the Qur'an to our children.
-We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it.
-We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit.
-We shall not seek to resemble the Muslims by imitating any of their garments, the qalansuwa, the turban, footwear, or the parting of the hair. We shall not speak as they do, nor shall we adopt their kunyas.
-We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our persons.
-We shall not engrave Arabic inscriptions on our seals.
-We shall not sell fermented drinks.
-We shall clip the fronts of our heads.
-We shall always dress in the same way wherever we may be, and -we shall bind the zunar round our waists( the zunar is to indicate who is muslim and who isnt and its an insult to wear this, (like how the star of David was used with the Jews during the Nazi holocaust)
-We shall not display our crosses or our books in the roads or markets of the Muslims. We shall use only clappers in our churches very softly. We shall not raise our voices when following our dead( which is denying an open display of grief of loss). We shall not show lights on any of the roads of the Muslims or in their markets. We shall not bury our dead near the Muslims.
-We shall not take slaves who have been allotted to Muslims.
-We shall not build houses overtopping the houses of the Muslims.
(When I brought the letter to Umar, may God be pleased with him, he added, "We shall not strike a Muslim.") In otherwords a Christian can't defend themselves against an attack by a muslim by fighting back.
We accept these conditions for ourselves and for the people of our community, and in return we receive safe-conduct.
If we in any way violate these undertakings for which we ourselves stand surety, we forfeit our covenant [dhimma], and we become liable to the penalties for contumacy and sedition.
Umar ibn al-Khittab replied: Sign what they ask, but add two clauses and impose them in addition to those which they have undertaken. They are: "They shall not buy anyone made prisoner by the Muslims," and "Whoever strikes a Muslim with deliberate intent shall forfeit the protection of this pact."
from Al-Turtushi, Siraj al-Muluk, pp. 229-230.

So this pact shows really how muslims are taught to treat Christians , and to be sure about this, look how Christians are living in islamic lands now. As a Christian living in muslim country, we are not allowed to have a local church and we are not allowed even to attend a church for foreign Christians. We are not allowed to have a bible in Arabic, our mother tongue, or the Berber in their languages. We see now muslims are saying in the west that they respect other religions and there is freedom in islam. In reality, there is no respect or freedom in islam. But, muslims now need the west cause the west is rich and they try to deceive the west so they can take it over and spread islam. In islamic land, no one is allowed to spread any religion other than islam.
When muslims pray, they ask allah to curse especially the Christians and the Jews. So why do muslims now say they respect Christians? Because there are some verses in the quran that order muslims to respect Christians, but those verses were abrogated by the verses that I mentioned previously. They want to use these abrogated verse that do not apply today because they are afraid of the west. As well, there are many muslims that leave islamic land to live in western countries so they cant say the truth about islam because they have no power. I wish muslims could be honest about this and say the truth about Islam .
