Do Jews and Christians, and other non-muslim people living under islamic rule feel that? Of course not. If Jews and Christians were so satisfied by muslim rule, then why did Spanish fought muslims for about 800 years and finally defeated them, and then kicked all muslims out of Spain? Remember Aurangzeb in India? I certainly do. I could go on giving examples but what is the point. Koranic Justice is pure injustice. I would like to be the caliph and will treat all muslims as Dhimmies; how would muslims like that. Should US treat muslims as Dhimmies? I don't think I will shed any tears.

Even the so called "righly guided caliphs' were not any better. They were the ones who islamized arabia by killing/kicking all non-muslims and then invading other countries.

Self praise is no recommendation.
