Muslims in Egypt, Syria and Iraq are beating and killing Christians for not paying, “jizya” which is a tax that conquered non-Muslims must pay to safeguard their existence. This includes Syrian Rebels which the United States is funding.
On Friday the Christian broadcasting Network (CBN) reported two Christian men were murdered by Muslims for failing to pay this “protection” money.
Muslims are Forcing Thousands of Christians
“The Voice of the Martyrs reports that a Muslim man demanded a Christian in a village in Assiut pay him nearly $1,500. The Christian sought help from local police but to no avail. When he failed to come up with the money, several Muslims went to his home and shot him and his cousin to death,” reported CBN
Muslim Brotherhood are forcing the 15,000 Christian Copts of Dalga village in south Minya province of Egypt to pay the tax reports Human Events.
“It’s the same in Syria and Iraq. “Rebels” recently went to a Christian man’s “shop and gave him three options: become Muslim; pay $70,000 as a tax levied on non-Muslims, known as jizya; or be killed along with his family…. Androus from Mosul, Iraq… says he received a similar demand via telephone. ‘Because you are infidels, you have to pay jizya,’ he recalled being told over the phone. ‘Either you pay jizya, or we will kill you or your son,’” the Human Events went on to report.
Last Wednesday on September 11 Gary Lane CBN News Senior International Reporter wrote, “In Egypt, Muslims have forced at least 140 Christians to pay a daily jizya tax starting at 200 Egyptian pounds per day. That’s the equivalent of $29, or $203 per week!
“I’ve met with many Christians over the years in Minya and elsewhere in Upper Egypt. Many of them earn less than $5 per day. Few can afford to pay this extortion money. “You pay us the jizya and we will not destroy your home or business!”
Refining Truth asks everyone to pray for the Christians in the Middle East region.

Of the nation of Israel God told Abraham: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
