Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee

From Weasel Zippers. Would someone please answer the question why must the West be "tolerant" of Islam's intolerance?
TALIBAN militants shot dead two women in the troubled north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar after accusing them of being prostitutes, police said today. The hardliners crushed the face of one of the women, apparently using rifle butts and stones, and left a note warning that others who engaged in "immoral'' activities would meet the same fate, they said. "We warned these whores but they did not stop their business,'' said the note left with the bodies of the women, one of whom was in her 20s..."

Another tradition states (Sahih Muslim, page 912, Mishkat II, page 534 and
others):
"Umar said: 'Verily Allah sent Muhammad with truth and revealed the Book to him. Out of the verses, the Almighty Allah revealed. there was the verse of stoning to death. The Messenger of Allah stoned to death (Sahih Muslim, page 920) and after him we also stoned to death: And in the BOOK OF GOD stoning to death is a truth against one, who commits adultery. The verse was thus: 'The old man and the old woman, if they have committed adultery, they stoned them both assuredly."
