So how does islam determine who among the Christians and Jews are a "party on the right course"?

Are they the ones who live in dhimitude in islamic countries and are second-class humans there?

Yet there is a quranic command to slay them wherever they are. So is that what you have in mind? Make friendship with them so they drop their guard?

But as a good muslim I'm sure you won't answer any of that ;))

There is no peace for the wicked.
