“Muhammad respected other religions.” p.453 My World History (Early Ages)
Just three paragraphs later on the same page, the texbook says the reverse.
“Muhammad destroyed statues of the gods at the Kaaba and rededicated it as an Islamic holy site.”
These two sentences contrdict themselves. But remember that this textbook is for 7th graders, who do not have the critical thinking skills to notice this inconsistancy.

The truth is that Muhammad was never tolerant of other religions in the sense we expect today.
Quran, Sura 9:29 “Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last day.”
