Then why should a non-muslim feel any differently?
(Mentioning 'that this is not a offensive thread' thereafter, does not lessen the negativity of your initial question).
If you are referring to the ignorance of the kuffaar to the Oneness of Allah.......or to their 'arrogance' in terms of rejecting His existence, His messengers and His Books, then surely there are better ways of raising this point.
As muslims we should take pride in living our lives in the manner of the most perfect of creations, Muhammed (sallalahu alaihi wasalam) - not just in terms of our ibaadat, but also our interactions with others.
Did our prophet (sallalahu alaihi wasalam) ever
use insulting words when referring to the kuffaar, despite the incredible hardships that they subjected him to?
If we too, could remember his blessed manners when interacting with others, then insha Allah, people would be entering Islam in their droves.
Unfortunately, as muslims, we forget this....and we tend to spend more time pointing fingers at others, and less time reflecting on our own flaws.....
Remember: 'Be hard on yourself. Easy on others' (Imam as-Shafiée).
