So if God (Qur'an) says keep others out of Mecca, then others must be kept out. Period. And if God (Qur'an) doesn't prohibit suing for the same type of discrimination by other cultures/religions, then such lawsuits are fine.

Good point but then the conclusion from this is that Islam is a tolerant faith but only up to a point, and in this case the point is decreed by God and therefore one cannot blame it's followers for applying it.
I do beleive that's the same line of reasoning Bin Laden took in defence of his actions.
Therefore the reasoning behind these "rules" are dangerous to a non-Muslim, who obviously does not beleive or share the same faith as those following the Qu'ran, if this flawed reasoning has a murderous result, especially one that is murderous to non-Muslims.
