The Islamic doctrine of al-Hijra promotes conquest by migration, first used to refer to the Profit and his supporters migration from *wherever* to Medina, which was a city of Joos.
ofc today Medina is a "holy city" and pilgirmage site, you can imagine what happened to the joos.
What happened in Kashmir is a latest example, same in West Bank, wherever you go try to become the majority and then impose sharia.

last jet engine fully studied and produced by RR is Spey... 60's technology....
Nope, RR is very active on the commercial side as well, and they are already testing Ultrafan. While there maybe a difference between a civilian high bypass turbofan and a military oriented low bypass turbofan, I'm sure RR can always adapt the core architechture of a civilian engine and make a new Low-Bypass turbofan with an afterburner.

Not exactly, one can always scale or use an existing core to develop an engine for a different role, one example is GE's F101 Engine. Designed solely for the B-1 Lancer, the company later used the core of the engine for their later joint venture engine with SNECMA (now SAFRAN Aircraft Engines) to get the CFM56. Current CFM LEAP also heavily draws on the same core although it's been optimised a lot. And while it's been a while since RR Designed any military engine, they still perform a lot of maintenance and overhaul related activities for those engines as they're also used as Aeroderivative Marine Gas Turbines and as Industrial Gas Turbines, which means the data, the knowhow and the know-why is all there in place.

Any idea what would be thrust dry of 110 class engine , comparing it's weight vs thrust with f 22 for mk 2 ,dry for supercruise should be atleast 75kn

I'm assuming you mean GE's F110 Engines fitted to later blocks of F-15E's, F-16's and F-14B/D's, then taking it as a starting point, and if you are developing a new core and fan section as well the dry thrust target should be around 230000-25000lbf or 102kN to 111kN with the current available materials technology. I believe PW has managed to achieve this in their PW F119 engines and even GE Surpassed these targets with a smaller fan diameter compared to both the F110 and F119.

Even in the development of f135 engine they had a major contribution even the lift fan is their patent!

RR were involved in the development and production of the EJ200, with the F136 'alternative' engine for the JSF (US govt funds for further development were cut about 10 years ago) and are the main player in looking to develop an engine for the Tempest programme so I would not say that their knowhow is out of date.
