Mohammed's covenant with the Christians was made when he was in the
middle of a generational crisis war between his own Hashim clan versus
the Umayya clan. Mohammed had no reason to fight the Christians, so
he promised to protect them.
Over the centuries, Muslim nations have continued to protect
Christians living among them, choosing to tax them rather than kill
them. So Mohammed's covenant has been followed for 1400 years.
Even today, Muslims are not killing Christians except for public
relations purposes in high profile terrorist attacks. The number of
Christians being killed is minuscule, compared to the number of
Muslims being killed. More Christians are being killed in traffic
accidents than by Muslims.
A lot of this was discussed in my book, "World View: Iran's Struggle
for Supremacy -- Tehran's Obsession to Redraw the Map of the Middle
East"https://www.amazon.com/World-View-Supre ... 732738610/
It's Christians who kill Christians -- Nazis vs Russians, Hutus vs
Tutsis, Russians vs Ukrainians, etc.
