I just exist, if my beliefs and existence are enough to provoke your ire, then there is nothing I can do about it.
I have the right to be who I am. I have the right to think what I think, and be honest about it.
You can say it's provocation, but it's just subjective honesty. Perhaps you consider that any view that is disagreeing with yours (even slightly) is a kind of provocation?
Most of my muslim friends respect who I am, and know that I wish them no harm, and that I would never really provoke them, that I would never cross the line. So perhaps, indeed, that you could learn something from them.
