As I finish up Sunday services here in a land where we are free to practice our religion. Not just worship but practice it, on the other side of the world Christians are laying their head down on their pillow and getting ready to start a new week.
While we will go on to have family gatherings, picnics or spending time with loved ones, they are having to sign this contract. If they do not they will be killed, beheaded, crucified and their wives and children sold into slavery.
Would you sign this? Most don't.
Most of us do some of these things already because our schools, sporting functions, public ceremonies demand some of the same conformity that ISIS requires.
1. Christians may not build churches, monasteries, or hermitages in the city or in the surrounding areas.
2. They may not show the cross or any of their books in the Muslims' streets or markets, and may not use amplifiers when worshiping or during prayer.
3. They may not make Muslims hear the reciting of their books or the sounds of church bells, which must be rung only inside their churches.
4. They may not carry out any act of aggression against ISIS, such as giving refuge to spies and wanted men. If they come to know of any plot against Muslims, they must report it.
5. They must not perform religious rituals in public.
6. They must respect Muslims and not criticize their religion.
7. Wealthy Christians must pay an annual jizya of four gold dinars; middle-class Christians must pay two gold dinars, and the poor must pay one. Christians must disclose their income, and may split the jizya into two payments.
8. They may not own guns.
9. They may not engage in commercial activity involving pigs or alcohol with Muslims or in Muslim markets, and may not drink alcohol in public.
10. They may maintain their own cemeteries.
11. They must abide by ISIS dress code and commerce guidelines.
Help us raise ten million dollars to bring these Christians into the USA. The State Department will "consider it" sometime in 2016. Evil doesn't wait. Nor shall we.
