You write: "well if i found a poor non muslim and a good living muslim, to which one should i give chairty ? of course to the poorest this is god's law". Both are Muslims. That's zakat.

You add: "it also goes for non muslims in certain conditions". Which conditions? So, it would be an exception to the rule.

That video has no credit. Those "Jews" keep their shoes on while praying, they occasionally bend or sit,etc.
