ISIS supporters have called for all Christians to surrender to ISIS and either accept Islam as their religion or to pay Jizya (a Muslim tax on non-Muslims for the right to live in a Muslim nation). They claim that until “worshippers of the cross” submit, they will keep attacking and that there is nothing we can do about it.
But the reality is that ISIS is being crushed in its heartlands. Their dream of a Caliphate is fading fast and lands that they took are now being taken back.
This doesn’t mean that they will stop trying to kill “the infidel”, but the idea that they can forcibly hold a nation is ridiculous. Losers keep losing.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Much of the support came over pro-ISIS channels on Telegram, a messaging app used as a forum for the group and its followers. One supporter called for “worshippers (sic) of the Cross” to submit to the caliphate.
“The only solution for you is to pay the jizya willingly while subdued,” said an ISIS supporter known as Bayzid Dogandemir. “If you do not pay the jizya, you will spend billions of dollars in security expenses and for failing intelligence agencies, which are unable to stop the attacks of the State of the Islamic Caliphate.”
The jizya is a yearly tax that certain non-Muslim subjects would pay to historical Islamic empires.
