America's Jizya?

                                                           America's Jizya?

For those who don't know the definition of Jizya, this is from Wikipedia:

Under Islamic law, jizya or jizyah (Arabic: جزيةǧizyah IPA: [dʒizja]; Ottoman Turkish: cizye;) is a per capita tax levied on a section of an Islamic state's non-Muslim citizens, who meet certain criteria. The tax is and was to be levied on able-bodied adult males of military age and affording power[1] (but with specific exemptions).[2] From the point of view of the Muslim rulers, jizya was a material proof of the non-Muslims' acceptance of subjection to the state and its laws, "just as for the inhabitants it was a concrete continuation of the taxes paid to earlier regimes."[4] In return, non-Muslim citizens were permitted to practice their faith, to enjoy a measure of communal autonomy, to be entitled to the Muslim state's protection from outside aggression, and to be exempted from military service and the zakat taxes obligatory upon Muslim citizens.

Muslims are real quick to say that was in the past. Wrong. Here is a modern day example translated by MEMRI:

Egyptian Cleric Dr. Khaled Said: U.S. Aid to Egypt Constitutes Jizya Tax
Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian cleric Dr. Khaled Said, which aired on Al-Hafez TV (via the Internet) on March 17, 2013.

Khaled Said: "If the revolution declares a framework for dealing with the West and America – they will accept it, kiss our hands, and double the aid they give us. We consider this aid to be jizya [poll tax], not regular aid."

Interviewer: "Is this the rhetoric of the revolution?"

Khaled Said: "It certainly is."

Interviewer: "The aid the Americans give us is the jizya tax they have to pay?"

Khaled Said: "Yes, it is. They pay it for the right of passage through our airspace and territorial waters."

Interviewer: "They pay to keep us quiet?"

Khaled Said: "They pay so that we will let them be."

Interviewer: "Is that a fatwa?"

Khaled Said: "Indeed. The aid constitutes jizya.
"We must strive to realize the goals of the revolution, and to establish a sovereign, Arab Islamic state in Egypt. Then this state will impose payment of aid upon America as jizya, in exchange for allowing it to realize its interests – the ones that we approve, get it?
"They must pay reparations for destroying our country and the Islamic nation – them and others in the West – so that we will agree to cooperate with them."

Interviewer: "But this is not what jizya means."

Khaled Said: "Nevertheless, I call it jizya."

Now for what the Qu'ran says:

Qur'an (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

Now for what the hadith says:

Muslim (19:4294) - There are many places in the hadith where Muhammad tells his followers to demand the jizya of non-believers.  Here he lays down the rule that it is to be extorted by force: "If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them"
Bukhari (53:386) - The command for Muslims to spread Islamic rule by force, subjugating others until they either convert to Islam or pay money, is eternal: Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."  This is being recounted during the reign of Umar, Muhammad's companion and the second caliph who sent conquering armies into non-Muslim Persian and Christian lands (after Muhammad's death).
Ishaq 956 & 962 - "He who withholds the Jizya is an enemy of Allah and His apostle."  The words of Muhammad.
America sends Billions of Dollars to Muslim dominated countries every year.  Many of these countries are our sworn enemies.  They are heavily influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood whose stated mission is the destruction of Israel and the establishment Islamic rule over the entire world. There are those on the left who like to say it is a " small minority " of Muslims who want this. Wrong.  Here is a small sample from some very reputable polling companies:
World Public Opinion: 61% of Egyptians approve of attacks on Americans
32% of Indonesians approve of attacks on Americans
41% of Pakistanis approve of attacks on Americans
38% of Moroccans approve of attacks on Americans
83% of Palestinians approve of some or most groups that attack Americans (only 14% oppose)
62% of Jordanians approve of some or most groups that attack Americans (21% oppose)
42% of Turks approve of some or most groups that attack Americans (45% oppose)
A minority of Muslims disagreed entirely with terror attacks on Americans:
(Egypt 34%; Indonesia 45%; Pakistan 33%)
About half of those opposed to attacking Americans were sympathetic with al-Qaeda’s attitude toward the U.S.
Now we get back to is this money we send to these countries a Jizya?  This is just a small portion of what we send to these countries:
$200 million to Jordan, but a total of over $650 million planned for this year. $1.56 billion for Egypt. $40.6 Million for Sudan. $351 Million for Ethiopia. $74 Million for Somalia. $66 Million Madagascar. $316 Million Mozambique. $600 Million Nigeria. $76.6 Million Yemen. Its hard to tell for sure on the Palestinians because they do it so many different ways, it APPEARS with all the different ways they are giving them money, over $2 Billion for fiscal year 2013.
This is a link to a 37 page report on how much we send each year.
Below are two links to articles. One from a left leaning publication, one from a right leaning one.
Why do we send all of this money, or Jizya to these countries that despise us and Pray for our demise?  We are over 16 Trillion in debt. We are making cuts in our Military. furloughing employees. Cutting back our border security.  It makes no sense.
We should take the money we send them to open up our oil and natural gas exploration. Build refineries. Create an infrastructure to make it easier for people to convert their cars to natural gas. This would make our economy boom, and cut off the unlimited money supply to people who want us dead, or to submit to their rule.
