Since Mona will not answer your question, I will gladly elucidate the requirements for Jews living with Arabs and in particular, Muslim Arabs. According to history books, Jews lived amongst Muslims from 638 AD to approximately 1900 AD as they did not come into their own homeland until 1948. Here are some simple rules the Jews would need to follow to live with Muslims. These rules are consistent with the rules that applied to Jews living amongst Muslim Arabs from 638 AD to 1900 AD.

1. Accept dhimmi status.
2. Walk on the street next to the sidewalk if a Muslim is on the sidewalk.
3. Never pass a Muslim on the right side.
4. Jews will need to wear special apparel or some identifying marker which clearly identifies them as Jews.
5. Jew must remove head apparel when approached by Muslim.
6. A Jew must never speak to a Muslim unless spoken to.
7. A Jew must never enter an establishment occupied by Muslims.
8. A Jew must never look a Muslim in the eye. The appropriate protocol is for a Jew to lower his head and look towards the ground.
9. Jews will be prohibited from building any more synagogues.
10. Muslims have the right to enter any Jewish home or establishment should they feel provoked for any reason.
12. Jews are not allowed to have any occupation wherein the position is above any Muslim. Management positions will be forbidden.
13. Muslims are permitted to punish any Jew physically, if they believe Jew has been disrespectful to Muslims.
14. Muslim children can entertain themselves by throwing stones or for that matter any projectile at Jews.
15. Jewish children can't attend the same school as Muslim children and can only rely on parents for education.
16. Muslims may beat or attack Jews on any occasion that they believe that they were provoked.
17. Jews may not retaliate under any circumstances.
18. Muslim men can take liberty with Jewish women at their discretion.
19. No Jew can date, associate with or marry a Muslim woman.
20.A Muslim can discipline a Jewish child at his discretion.
