ISIL forcing Christians to pay Jizyah and sign Dimmah contracts


Recommended Posts

This is just outrageous.

Just to clarify though, the value of one ISIL gold dinar is apparently US$139, meaning that wealthy Christians will pay a Jizyah of $556 per year, middle class Christians will pay US$278 per year and poor Christians will pay US$139 per year. These may not seem like exorbitant amounts but given that the economic conditions in ISIL held territory are not great, it is a high amount.

The following are the contract's 11 articles:
1. Christians may not build churches, monasteries, or hermitages in the city or in the surrounding areas.
2. They may not show the cross or any of their books in the Muslims' streets or markets, and may not use amplifiers when worshiping or during prayer.
3. They may not make Muslims hear the reciting of their books or the sounds of church bells, which must be rung only inside their churches.
4. They may not carry out any act of aggression against ISIS, such as giving refuge to spies and wanted men. If they come to know of any plot against Muslims, they must report it.
5. They must not perform religious rituals in public.
6. They must respect Muslims and not criticize their religion.
7. Wealthy Christians must pay an annual jizya of four gold dinars; middle-class Christians must pay two gold dinars, and the poor must pay one. Christians must disclose their income, and may split the jizya into two payments.
8. They may not own guns.
9. They may not engage in commercial activity involving pigs or alcohol with Muslims or in Muslim markets, and may not drink alcohol in public.
10. They may maintain their own cemeteries.
11. They must abide by ISIS dress code and commerce guidelines.

Maybe they were inspired by Donald Trump's comments that Mexico should pay for to build a fence between the US and Mexico.

for what it's worth, I'm pretty sure most Muslims in the US would pay a tax that size...

Let's keep in mind the positives of this situation, the virtuous Christians who oppose ISIS will leave the middle east and move to more virtuous rational countries!

Why would Muslims in the US pay a tax that size?
