Sorry, but I am anti anti anti anti anybody from any sect that thrives on fear and violence. Religions, mafias, politicians: screw 'em.

Now I fear a carbomb on my way to work tomorrow morning.

What obligation is there to respect these madmen?

I find it absurd that we must treat Islam as a religion of peace just because Muslims say it's so (hardly an unbiased source) when we in the west have taken that label away from all of our religions because of the violence and terror that they managed to inflict.
The fact that certain radical adherents of a faith betray the peaceful tenets of that faith does not mean that the faith itself is not actually about peace. I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate someone suggesting that since every major government that has been statedly atheist (as opposed to just secular--there is a difference) has had a history of violence and oppression that therefore means that all atheists are prone to violence and oppression or that atheism itself inherently creates violence and oppression.
