Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I referred to "monotheism", not "christianity".

I explicitly bracketed Islam and Christianity together as bastard offspring of Judaism.

With respect to your list of categories of people who one might be hostile to : I would qualify it, not by birth into a specific group (the English, the Germans, the Russians etc...) which would be very far indeed from the spirit of ET, as follows

  • American neocons, i.e. those who presided over, and still justify, the abomination of the war in Iraq (and most likely, the extermination of the Amerindians too)

  • English imperialists, i.e. those who adhere to the colonialist doctrine that was in force during the building of the Empire... if any can be found

  • German neo-nazis... no comment

  • Russian neo-Stalinists

  • obscurantist Christians and Muslims who adhere to the hegemonic doctrines of the Inquisition, the Muslim conquests etc

I can't think of anyone here who would not be hostile, justifiably, to all of the above groups.

Back atcha good buddy.
