Actually klew(less) may have been more appropriate..
You asked...
So how does islam determine who among the Christians and Jews are a "party on the right course"??

Answered in 5:57of that chapter...Read it again , and slowly..
Again..
"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?

Your reference is for the chapter/verse 2:91....
Once again a part verse is quoted as is common practice ..

READ 2:90 a verse overlooked again:

"Fight in the cause of GOD those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for GOD loveth not transgressors."
Meaning obviously in SELF DEFENCE ..."those who fight you"

next verse 2:92...
"But if they cease, GOD is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful..."
Meaning aggression even in warfare IS NOT permitted!

Following that line 2:93..
but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression.
Again warfare purely for self defense... Comprender Klew ????

I have to the best of my ability answered and hopefully educated you Klew.. Peace out dude ;))

Submitting....
