Toga these are completely different points to the ones we were discussing. I am not saying that the situation in the Mid East is exlempary or Islamic in todays world, but thats because they don't have an Islamic system of rule, they have nationalistic ones. Even Saudi and Iran do not, though they call it Islamic, it's not.Originally Posted by Toga
We were talking about dhimmitude and the Islamic system of rule. Let's be clear that the Mid East countries today are nationalistic and not under a Caliphate.
THE ISLAMIC SYSTEM OF RULE IS A CALIPHATE. DHIMMITUDE ONLY APPLIES IN A CALIPHATE.
And if you read history, you will see it worked well. The golden age of your people came about under dhimmitude in an ISLAMIC CALIPHATE.
Islamic civilisation led the world, at that time.
