Considering that fundamentalist of the past and present pull quotes from their books to rationalize their hatred I would like to see an end to all violent religous hatred period. Unfortunately all religous groups tout their religion as the one and only true religion and can't help but to stigmatize the others that don't agree.
I can see that religions are being used specially when people get hopeless

As one of "The people of the Book" I know this, but the OP is a self described atheist/agnostic.

in addition to this , Muslims are ordered to be fair with non Muslims ,here I translated a narration from Islamic references let us hope to be understood

prophet Mohammed PBUH said " Whoever abuses Mu'ahad* ,cheats him or take something belongs to him wrongfully, thus I will stand out against him on the day of Judgment "

*Mu'ahad : a visitor to Muslims' territories from other nations , religion or culture.

If Muslim killed any Muslim accidentally ,he will be fined around $ 100.000
if Muslim killed any non Muslim accidentally, he will be fined double that means $200,000 approximately

but if did any thing on purpose ,,,this is another story there is " Qisas " which means the same act will be done to the aggressor wither it is killing or a similar physical harm !unless you forgive

Allah said in ch 5 verse 45;
" We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (No better than) wrong-doers."
