In addition to what brother Abdul Jabbar has said, I would like to add some points I think is the cause of intolerance. Quran is very clear that belief is a thing of heart and it is not to be forced on anyone. For example Quran says let there be no compulsion in religion (2:256) and don't force people on to Islam (10:99) etc. There are lot of similar ...

The Prophet is reported to have said = "Plague was a means of torture sent on a group of Israelites.
