The Mufti does not face a threat to his life, because his is expounding on one of the basic tenets of Muslim law. Muslims protect those who are not allowed to protect themselves. Ie., Jews and Christians, who are not allowed to take up arms, or law against any Muslim attacker. That's status quo ideology, hardly some progressive liberal thought. Moreover, realize that protection doesn't mean peace. It means ruler and subject, with the Muslims being the rulers and the Jews in this case, being the subjects. One should also remember that the 'subjects', while protected, are only protected as long as they obey their masters.
