Again, I am concerned that what you have written here is a regurgitation of someone else's interpretation. I agree with most of what you have said about our duties as followers of the religion of Abraham (saaw) but I have qualms about a few of the things you said-
"The personality of Muslims makes them natural leaders and longing for political commission."
This is hardly an accurate portrayal of such a large community of believers with different qualities and interests.
"To be a viceroy of Allah sent to revive Islam as the only deen for mankind to live by."
I don't recall the Quran saying that we have to be "Viceroys of Allah" I think our status is more like servants and we should be happy to serve God and those in need as is outlined in God's scriiptures. Reviving Islam in our own hearts is a far greater task than lecturing others on it.
"Once you have learnt a new topic of Islam don't be like the Jews of the past who kept the laws for themselves."
Slandering the People of the Book does nothing to help your case for kindness and charity. God has said in the Torah, the Bible and the Quran that some of those who received the scriiptures have always rebelled. But that does not mean all of them. And God is the only one who can judge who is rightly guided and who is not.
3:199. And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book, those who believe in Allah, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to Allah. They will not sell the Signs of Allah for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and Allah is swift in account.
