In Islam eating an animal becomes an act of self-veneration because the owner of the animal sacrifices his piety to Allah

Surah 22:

We have made camels part of God’s sacred rites for you. There is much good in them for you, so invoke God’s name over them as they are lined up for sacrifice, then, when they have fallen down dead, feed yourselves and those who do not ask, as well as those who do. We have subjected them to you in this way so that you may be thankful. It is neither their meat or their blood that reaches God but your piety. He has subjected them to you in this way so that you may glorify God for having guided you.

What the text is also saying is that Allah should be thankful for the piety of his believers and they are also being glorified, as well as Allah.

If you couple this with all the denunciations of unbelievers found in the Koran it is not surprising that Muslims feel themselves to be a superior species and behave themselves accordingly.
