Asking Christians to respect Islam and in return they will have respect is another way to soften the blow of dhimmitude and present it as if there was parity between the two beliefs. The respect expected of Christians means following the rules laid down by Islam regarding how Christians must "respect" Islam, and that includes no churches in Islamic lands, no outside worship or ringing of bells, no praying where Muslims can hear and no showing that you are other than Muslim in nay way, shape or form.
Respect from Islam to any other religion is non-existant, as told by the Qur'an and hadiths of Muhammad. Respect for Islam from every other religion is expected, and if not forthcoming is dealt with accordingly, as told by the Qur'an and hadiths of Muhammad.
