For those that have had, or does have, interaction with Muslims the word kafir will have probably come up in some context or other. Here Dr. Warner gives is a clear Islamic definition of what the term kafir means.
A new strain of thought has developed in Sunni Muslim thinking: ethnic cleansing. It’s not genocide, but it involves expelling non-Sunni populations. Its spread means that non-Muslim minorities have a grim future in Muslim-majority countries; and some may have no future there at all.
This article briefly lays out the terms that a non-Mulsim (zimmi or dhimmi) can live in a Muslim (Islamic) State, i.e. an Islamic country ruled by sharia law. So where sharia rules this is the condition of the non-Muslim.
Western Ignorance of the ‘Conditions of Omar’ – Islamic dhimmi-hood (the lot of a non Muslim in a Muslim society)
In Islam what does it mean to live in a Muslim majority country as a non-Muslim? In Islam, such people are called dhimmi. So according to Islam what is their status?
Christians are attacked by Muslim mobs, police and security forces wait until the mob has done it business, Christians are then asked to submit to what the mob wants (or face further violence). The lot of a Christin in Egypt. How long before Europe follows suit?
Equal rights have no place in Islam and we see this laid bare for us in this article. Known as zimmis or dhimmi and at times kafir’s. It describes sharia as it applies to non-Muslims and illustrates why Islam is not compatible with Western values.
There is another kind of dhimmi—kafirs who become apologists for Islam, fear and defer to it. So we have two types of dhimmi—the subjugated dhimmi who is under the political power of Islam and the apologist dhimmi who seeks Islamic favor.
