Question
I do not particularly care that Muslims believe in one god. Why is it that Muslims (and your kooky kinfolk Christians) care that I believe in many gods? Why has the "religion of peace" murdered so many polytheists? Why this irrational hatred towards those who are different?

Answer
As Salaam Alaikum (Peace to you)

Well, If some people in particular religion represents wrongly that doesn't mean the religion
is at fault, but it's the people who are at fault by not understanding the religious teachings
in the right perspective.

Islam is not only a peaceful religion but a tolerant one though some Islamic countries & some
misguided Muslims chose to represent in the opposite.

Here's a chapter in the Koran that clarifies how tolerant Islam is.

109
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
109:1
Say, "O you disbelievers.
109:2
I do not worship what you worship.
109:3
"Nor do you worship what I worship.
109:4
"Nor will I ever worship what you worship.
109:5
"Nor will you ever worship what I worship.
109:6"
To you is your religion, and to me is my religion."

And for your information Koran discourages capital punishments & prohibits strictly killings
of the innocents.

May the Almighty creator of all the universes and that's between the earth and skies have mercy
on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path of submission for rest of our life.
