May we demonstrate our faith in 5:82 and 2:256?

Dear brothers and sisters, July 7, 2008;

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmathullahi Wa Bharakhathuhu.
Yusuf Ali 2:256
Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

Could Allah SWT favor the Muslims over non-Muslims in worldly affairs? Won't such favors be considered as indirect compulsion on non-Muslims to become Muslims? It is our understanding that Allah SWT treats all -- both Muslims and non-Muslims -- on par and rewards them on the basis of their efforts with respect to this life. Thus Muslims should work for their advancement. Further as Allah SWT does not discriminate in worldly affairs, helping non-Muslims in worldly affairs would be rewarded provided such help is not against Muslims.
Yusuf Ali 5:82
Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, "We are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.

There are some Christians who do love Muslims. This applies to the Christians living in Jerusalem.
My fellow Palestinians, no matter what religion you belong to, Christianity or Islam, we are one nation and one people. We must struggle for our land and strengthen our presence.

They have sent an appeal found below. It is known that Israelis influence American policy. Is the reverse true? Do Americans influence Israeli policies? This issue of 'residency abroad' would affect many Christian Israeli Citizens of America. By denying residence just because a citizen has gained residency in America violates the 'Principle of reciprocity.'

Let us hope that Israeli Christians do not lose their right of living inside Israel. Let us pray for the same. Let us also do whatever we could to help them. Let us inform as many Americans as possible of this lack of reciprocity so that they also could help the Israeli Christians.

Ya Allah You are the sustainer; You move the food to the immovable life like trees, and move the movable like the human to their food. Ya Allah sanction the food of our brothers and sisters of the Book - Israeli Christians - inside Israel so that they move there at will to eat their food. Aameen, Aameen, Ya Rabbil aalameen.

Your brother,

Mohideen Ibramsha
Was salaam
