Well I don't see what difference anything from 570 makes.

And what do you mean by Jewish autonomy? If they are within and intermixed with other people, how could they have autonomy? Doesn't everyone need to be integrated?
One thing here that I don't really get is what is this need of segregation? Look, I'm not a historian, but as far as I know, when these lands were under rule of islamic empire, people of all faiths/races lived there, people of all faiths/races had representatives holding positions and actively participating in the gov't (for the most part, I think there were a couple rulers who kinda went buckwild). When people are all mixed and living together, what other course can you possibly take? America is a melting pot and is a perfect example of this. How does it make sense for east asians living here to want autonomy and so force out people of other race and move in people of their own? Or if sikhs want autonomy so they cleanse out certain neighborhoods and fill it with their own? This makes no sense. If multiple groups of people live there, does it not make sense that all those people are just treated as normal citizens?
