The full vigor of Quranic, Muslim terrorism discrimination explained
To understand the role of Muslim controlled societies, one must first examine the world view of the Muslims envisioned by Islam's foundation doc-uments, namely the Quran, the Hadith or traditions, and the Sheria or law code. Muslims view the entire world as the possession of Allah and his surrogates on earth, the Muslims. This world domination by Islam is called "khilafah" and it remains the goal of Islam. Jihad or "holy war" is the means by which the infidels are conquered and the goal of khilafah is achieved. All humanity must submit to Islam as the natural order of the universe. The exception, mentioned above, allowed to Christians and Jews, was and remains, as stated, mere sufferance, not an acceptable alternative. Muslims divide humanity into two kinds - believers or Muslims called by the Quran "the best of nations raised up to rule over all others" Surah III, 110, and "kufr" or infidels defined by the Quran as "the vilest of animals" Surah VIII, 55. Christians and Jews, while not pagans, remain infidels, "may Allah destroy them" Surah IX 3.
The world is divided by Muslims into the House of Islam where Muslims prevail and the House of War where infidels prevail. Between the two abodes of mankind perpetual war called jihad reigns as the natural condition or relationship. All Muslims are called to jihad as a moral mandate to subdue the House of War and establish the universal rule of Islam, khilafah. All Muslim society everywhere is contained in the "umma", the universal brotherhood of Muslims. In the early centuries following Muhammad the umma was led by the "khalif", the Commander of the Faithful, as the successor of Muhammad, in whom all matters of religion and state were combined. Islam, then as now, sees no distinction between the religion and the state.
Islam has no notion of inalienable natural or human rights such as envisioned by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. Moreover, Islam does not acknowledge civil rights, i. e. rights which inure to people by virtue of their membership in a political state. The only rights possessed by Muslims and dhimmi are religious rights recognized in the Quran and codified in the Sheria. In this scheme of things, the despised dhimmi fare badly, for they are excluded from the umma and remain subordinated to it in law as well as in practice. Muslims are even forbidden to befriend dhimmi Surah V, 51. By rough a n a l o g y the status of dhimmi may be likened to that of the Negroes in the South during the worst days of Jim Crow. 
Seen in the above context and supported by 14 centuries of practice, the Muslims are trapped in a "closed circle" of their own making which denies them the opportunity to regard and deal with infidels in any manner except that which is contemplated by their religion and culture. Because the mandates of the Quran represent the complete, final, eternal, literal and unalterable revelation of their deity, the Muslims are frozen in the Bedouin mentality of the 7th century and unprepared to deal with dhimmi or other infidels according to the universal human rights standards of the present. As stated by the author, Bat Ye'or, in her book, referenced below, entitled THE DECLINE OF EASTERN CHRISTIANITY UNDER ISLAM:
"Jihad and dhimma, emanations of the Creator's will, are invested with divine attributes: immutability, perfection, justice, infallibility; considered as perfect systems, they brook no criticism. The subjugation of Christians and Jews in Islam, in accordance with the divine will, is achieved by the perfection of the dhimma. Any criticism of jihad and dhimma - that is to say of the temporal realm - becomes a sacrilege because of the unity of the temporal and the spiritual."
Although the above standards apply generally to the relationships between the umma and the dhimmi in all times and places, the practical application in many Muslim states has yielded to outside influences and political realities. Accordingly the practical applications have been modified resulting in a variety of situations in which Muslim states have deviated from the norm, allowing in some cases more benign treatment of dhimmi. In some states like Baathist Iraq, Baathist Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia and Morocco the governments eschew the overt persecution of Christians, although the Jews were run off decades ago. Other states like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and Sudan apply the full vigor of Quranic discrimination.
