Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Abul Kasem, an ex-Muslim who is the author of hundreds of articles and several books on Islam including, Women in Islam.

He writes from Sydney, Australia and can be reached at email@example.com.
FP: Abul Kasem, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
Kasem: Thank you.
FP: We are here today to discuss how Islam views non-Muslims. What is the best way to start this discussion?
Kasem: Those who have not read the Qur’an in detail have very little idea about the unremitting hatred Allah has for the non-Muslims. One striking aspect of Islam’s unbound rage and hatred for the unbelievers is that Allah is obsessed with tagging the unbelievers with animals—various types, such as dogs, camels, cows, pigs, apes, goat and so on.
FP: Can you share some verses from the Qur’an, ahadith, and other important sources in Islam on this theme?
Kasem: Sure. Allah sees unbelievers as worse than animals. Let us start with verse 8:55 of the Qur’an. In essence this verse says: the unbelievers are the worst beasts (or worst animals) in the eyes of Allah.
