الاسلام دين ودولة and the OTHER!

Reader comment on item: Jerusalem, Jordan, and the Jews
in response to reader comment: الاسلام دين ودولة and errors in the book of al-Deen? How did the Islamic tradition deal with grammatical mistakes in the Qur'an!

The question is: Why do non Muslims have to know a lot about Islam? The answer is because Islam is interested in the other (non Muslims) and the interest of Islam in the other is not nice in the least.

So who are the others in Islam? The clue is a loan word from Syriac/Aramaic and it is Kapura or ܟܦܘܪܐ (compare with Hebrew Koper)

The word ܟܦܘܪܐ means: Non Jewish, non Christian

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%DC%9F%DC%A6%DC%98%DC%AA%DC%90

Enter Muhammad and he uses it in the Qur'an not realizing what the word really means (not unlike the loan word Hanif حنيف which is plagiarized by Muhammad from Syriac/Aramaic ܝܢܚܦܐ or pagan and now the Quranic Ibrahim is a pagan!) and now this evil word in Arabic is used to dehumanize non Muslims.

So the word كافر or Kafir in Islam means: Non Muslim

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%DC%9F%DC%A6%DC%98%DC%AA%DC%90

Next, there is a famous hadith where Muhammad is quoted as saying:

امرت ان اقاتل الناس حتى يشهدوا أن لا اله الا الله وان محمدا رسول الله

https://binbaz.org.sa/audios/2685/385-%D9%85%D9%86-%D8%AD%D8%AF%D9%8A%D8%AB-%D8%A7%D9%85%D8%B1%D8%AA-%D8%A7%D9%86-%D8%A7%D9%82%D8%A7%D8%AA%D9%84-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%86%D8%A7%D8%B3-%D8%AD%D8%AA%D9%89-%D9%8A%D8%B4%D9%87%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%A7-%D8%A7%D9%86-%D9%84%D8%A7-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%87-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A7-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%84%D9%87-%D9%88%D8%A7%D9%86-%D9%85%D8%AD%D9%85%D8%AF%D8%A7-%D8%B1%D8%B3%D9%88%D9%84-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%84%D9%87

This can be rendered as: I have been ordered to fight the people (read this as non Muslims and Muslims if needed) until they witness that there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.

This hadith is based on what al-Mufasereen called (the infamous) Ayat al-Sayf or the "sword verse" or Q9:5 where it says:

اقتلوا المشركين

Or Fight to kill the idolaters

It has been estimated that 280 million human beings were murdered by Muslim invaders because of this verse alone.

https://www.politicalislam.com/tears-of-jihad/

And the staggering number of 80 million Hindus that were murdered by the Muslim invaders of India over a period of 500 years because they were polytheists and Allah al-Rahman al-Rahim does not like polytheists, the same God who believes in pre-destination! But again Muhammad and his God were not good theologians.

So the question now is who are the idolaters/polytheists?

1. Jews and Christians based on Q9:30 where it says:

وقالت اليهود عزير ابن الله وقالت النصارى المسيح ابن الله

And the Jews said (feminine plural which is very odd) 'Uzair the son of Allah and al-Nasarra (read this as Christians) said (again feminine plural which is very odd) the Christ is the son of Allah

To make it simple Muhammad and his God are accusing the Jews and Christians of being polytheists which is not true

2. Hindus, Buddhists, Jain, Zoroastrians, Atheists, Sikh, Mormons etc... or the rest of humanity

However, Muhammad and his God must have realized that they can give another option (and make some money in the meantime after all what is the use of a dead non believer) to those pesky Jews and Christians that did not want to convert to Islam and that is the mafia tax known as al-Jizya (Q9:29)

Notice that this "law" is good for all times and all places.
