Dhimmitude For Christians In Syria

Here we go ... coming soon to a country or neighbourhood near you real soon ... 'Dhimmitude for Christians', paid for and backed by the UK government, who 'support' the “Syrian rebels”. The terrorist group known as the 'Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant' (ISIS), who captured the regional capital of Rabba in Syria, have now issued a proclamation demanding that the Christians of that area pay a ‘Dhimmi levy' in gold, and accept severe curbs on the practise of their faith, or face death by the ISIS butchers.

After the cannibalism of some of the rebel savages, this latest outrage has just been coming, it was just a matter of time … the payment of the tax, is by the submission of around half an ounce (14g) of pure gold, in exchange for their *'safety'. This is what the Christians under the Ottoman Turks, and earlier Arab conquerors, had to pay, in order to only be beaten up occasionally by their Muslim overlords. It is defended as just by some, as Muslims are meant to pay a tax called the Zakat, however the passage used by Malik Muwatta (Book 17, Number 17.24.46) to explain this fact, also states that  the 'Zakat is imposed on the Muslims to purify them (redistribute to the poor), and to be given back to their poor, whereas Jizya is imposed on the people of the Book to humble them' .... which kind of contradicts the idea that the Jizya is a fair tax for protection.

*Under the Ottomans and Arabs some Christians were smacked in the face once a year, to remind them that they were owned by the Muslims. Page 206 of 'The Medieval Islamic Civilization Encyclopedia' states that Muslim 'jurists' believed that “certain repressive and humiliating aspects of paying the dhimma as de rigueur. Dhimmis were required to pay the 'jizya' as it was called in Egypt publicly, in broad daylight, with hands turned palm upward, and to receive a smart smack on the forehead or the nape of the neck from the collection officer." - they further specified a number of additional or alternative humiliating rituals at the time of 'jizya' payment, including slapping, choking, and pulling the beard of the paying dhimmi as humiliation.

Medieval Islamic Civilisation - Not Changed Since

This latest proclamation states that:
  • Christians must not make renovations to churches, display crosses or other religious symbols outside churches, ring church bells or pray in public.
  •  Christians must not carry arms, and must follow other rules imposed by ISIS (also known as ISIL) on their daily lives.

The statement said the group had met Christian representatives and offered them three choices:
  1. They could convert to Islam, 
  2. Accept ISIS' conditions, or 
  3. Reject their control and face being killed. …. 
 "If they reject, they are subject to being legitimate targets, and nothing will remain between them and ISIS other than the sword".

Apparently, around 20 Christian’s leaders had chosen to accept the new set of rules, which is hardly surprising given the choices. There were probably about 3,000 Christians living there before the ISIS took over, but its likely to be only a few hundred now, as many fled after the ISIS started attacking and burning churches.

The Pact of Umar - A One Way Obligation?

The politicians of the West are so ignorant of the past, that they fail to understand exactly what rules Islam imposes when it gains the upper hand over non-believers. They opened the Gates of Vienna two decades ago, not understanding exactly why our forbearer’s had resisted the enemy at those same gates so bravely for hundreds of years.

Now the genie is out the bottle, and the clock of social progress is being turned back towards a darker time, when the ignorant held sway over many eastern lands, and expected to hold sway over all. I expect that as usual we will do nothing, and simply turn a blind eye once again to the persecution and genocide of Christians across the Middle East and Asia, by a triumphalist group of jihadists, many of whom now come from the Islamic ghettos of our own cities.

I will repeat again that we are the architects of our own demise, and will have no cause to act surprised when the green flag and crescent flutters over the spires of Oxford.
