Egypt: Desire for Money—Jizya—Prompts Attacks on Christians

Pages: 1 2

If growing numbers of Muslims in Egypt have an intrinsic hatred for all things Christian—most recently demonstrated by the torching of eight Christian homes on the rumor that a church was being built—let us not forget that this hate has instrumental, that is, economic benefits: the extortion of money from the non-believer—tribute from the conquered infidels to their Islamic overlords—otherwise known as jizya.

Consider: on June 24, hundreds of Muslims surrounded a Coptic church in Egypt, vowing to kill its priest—who was locked inside serving morning mass to several parishioners. The Muslims cried “We will kill the priest, we will kill him and no one will prevent us,” adding that they would “cut him to pieces.”

As usual, police and security forces gave the terrorists ample time to terrorize—appearing a full five hours after the incident began; and when they escorted the priest out, it “looked as if he was the criminal, leaving his church in a police car.”

What, exactly, did the rioting Muslims want this time? Why were they threatening to kill the priest?

The official story is that they were livid that the priest had earlier tried to make renovations to the 100-year old church—Islam forbids building new or repairing old churches. After forcing renovations to cease on threats that they would demolish the church, they also tried to banish the priest, giving him 50 days to quit the region. The priest’s time was up, yet he refused to abandon his flock. Hence, the wild attack.

    The way to liberate Egypt and other Islamic slave states is for Western forces to expropriate the oil fields and then launch a war of liberation against the Muslims.

    America is broke. Experts warn of a coming Depression greater than the Great Depression. Our dire economic situation is regarded as irrelevant to our government. Besides giving away billions of dollars to many countries each year, the United States gives $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the government in Egypt every year.

    It is clear nothing is expected from Egypt in return for this massive gift of free money we cannot afford to give. Egypt is NOT expected to give basic human rights to Egypt's Christians.

    The U.S. was behind the ouster of US ally, moderate Mubarak in order to bring to power the Muslim Brotherhood. The U.S. and other Western nations are fully aware that since Mubarak's ouster, things have become far worse for Egypt's Christians.

    The U.S. government could demand that Egypt would not get another dollar (which we cannot afford and should NOT be giving) unless Egypt started to protect their Christian population. It is the only ethical response to the merciless Muslim persecution of Christians.

    Dr. Amani Tawfiq, female professor “If Egypt wants to slowly but surely get out of its economic situation and address poverty in the country, the jizya has to be imposed on the Copts.”

    The Christian Copts are also struggling to survive economically. They would be left with insufficient money to buy food if they are forced to give jizya.

    Jizya is part of Islam – forcing non-Muslims to pay money to Muslims and being put to death if the non-Muslims do not, or cannot pay the jizya.

    Instead of coming up with creative ways to take care of their economy: the solution is: take money by force from non-Muslims who cannot afford to give. It is despicable. We must have huge street protests against this Muslim cruelty.

    Centuries ago, Egypt was a Christian country conquered by Muslims. Egypt is a warning to the entire free world what happens to countries conquered by Islam. Experts say that the huge Muslim immigration to UK and Europe will result years from now in the UK and Europe becoming Islamic nations ruled by Muslims. With the threat of Jizya and other terrible inhuman acts.
