"Protected" not "Equal". Muslim 'protection' came at a steep cost, key of which was the inability to defend oneself, either physically or in a court of law. Notably, non-Muslims weren't even allowed to offer testimony. The other restrictions and costs are well known. What is also lacking from the Mufti's comments is a sense of timing. 60 years after Israel's founding, a time when Syria first persecuted, and finally disperesed its own Jewish community, shows a willingness to protect what was already destroyed. If the Mufti is sincere in his words, then he will advocate a push for Syria to end its hostility towards Israel in search for a true peace. Yesterday's faults are history. Today is what matters. If the Mufti is willing to walk the walk, then praise to him for taking such a step.
