Its Shari'ah, Stupid #18

Eighteenth in a series on offensive Jihad in Fiqh.
al-Majlisi, d. 1698, shia-jurist. ”The Treatise Lightning Bolts Against the Jews”, övers. V.B. Moreen, Die Welt des Islams (32:1992), s. 187-93.
That is, fight against those who do not believe in God and in the Day of Resurrection, who do not prohibit the things that have been prohibited by God and His Prophet, such as wine and pork, and do not believe in the religion of truth, from among those who had been given the Book, until they pay the jizyah, with their own hands, while they are in a low and abased state.

In this case, the jurist was paraphrasing & explaining an infamous ayat, do you recognize it? What does it command Muslims to do; to whom? What are the essential elements of the compound terminal condition?Does this vary significantly from the Sunni Fiqh?

Got a clue yet? Its 9:29.
