U.S. Aid to Egypt is ‘Jizya’: Egyptian Imam

E-mail Print PDF

As earlier suggested, the wonderful thing about Salafis—those extra “radical” Muslims who seek to emulate as literally as possible prophet Muhammad’s teachings and habits—is that they are so unabashed and frank about what they believe. Such is the degree of brainwashing that they have undergone. Unlike the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded much earlier, doublespeak is not second nature to the Salafis.

The most recent example comes from Al Hafiz TV, an Egyptian Islamic station. During a roundtable discussion on the U.S. and foreign aid to Egypt, an Islamic cleric, clearly of the Salafi bent—he had their trademark mustache-less-beard—insisted that the U.S. must be treated contemptuously, like a downtrodden dhimmi, or conquered infidel; that Egypt must make the U.S. conform to its own demands; and that, then, all the money the U.S. offers to Egypt in foreign aid can be taken as rightfully earned jizya.

jizya paymentHistorically, the jizya was money, or tribute, that conquered non-Muslims had to pay to their Muslim overlords to safeguard their existence, as indicated in Koran 9:29. As the spirit of Islam continues making a comeback, Muslims around the world continue calling for non-Muslims,especially Christian minorities under Islam, to resume paying the jizya, which was abolished in the 19th century, thanks to European intervention.

According to the sheikh, Egypt must be less cooperative with the U.S. and at the same time insist for more monetary aid. If so, the sheikh believes that “America will accept; it will kiss our hands; and it will also increase its aid. And we will consider its aid as jizya, not as aid. But first we must make impositions on it.”

When the host asked the sheikh “Do the Americans owe us jizya?” he responded, “Yes,” adding that it is the price Americans have to pay “so we can leave them alone!” When the host asked the sheikh if he was proclaiming a fatwa, the latter exclaimed, “By Allah of course!” The sheikh added that, to become a truly Islamic state, Egypt must “impose on America to pay aid as jizya, before we allow it to realize its own interests, the ones which we agree to.”

While the Egyptian cleric was focused on “international jizya”—that is, money paid by one non-Muslim nation to a Muslim nation, U.S money to Egypt—other Muslims have been receiving and enjoying individual “jizya” from Western, infidel governments, in the form of welfare aid.

Just last February, for example, Anjem Choudary, an Islamic cleric and popular preacher in the United Kingdom, was secretly taped telling a Muslim audience to follow his example and get “Jihad Seeker’s Allowance” from the government—a pun on “Job Seeker’s Allowance.” The father of four, who receives more than 25,000 pounds annually in welfare benefits, referred to British taxpayers as “slaves,” adding, “We take the jizya, which is our haq [Arabic for “right”], anyway. The normal situation by the way is to take money from the kafir[infidel], isn’t it? So this is the normal situation. They give us the money—you work, give us the money, Allahu Akhbar [“Allah is Great”]. We take the money. Hopefully there’s no one from the DSS [Department of Social Security] listening to this.”

Thus, the non-Muslim world should be grateful to the Salafis for always and ever exposing Islam’s teachings and beliefs. Immensely proud of and indoctrinated in their Islamic heritage, and like the earliest Muslim conquerors drunk with power and pride, convinced that Allah is on their side and they can do no wrong, today’s Salafis are unabashed when it comes to the things of Islam, from evoking them to upholding them.

But of course, all this honesty is for naught for those many in the West who, having eyes and ears, do not see or hear reality.

Jizya is not an Islamic Invention
written by Gnostic , March 20, 2013
There had been poll taxes before in the Sassanid Empire for Christians as well as in East Rome for Copts and other religious minorities.

The rulers in both empires did not expect the minorities to fight against their brothers and thats why they took the taxes instead.

Here we can that the quran is a product of its time when it was written when a poll tax made sense. However, nowadays no international company would invest any money in a country with such rules and a Jizya would cause only damage to any country because it is not acceptable with the laws of international trade and transaction.

It is also some kind of discrimination and not acceptable by any modern law.

International Humanitarian Aid packages have been misused by Muslim countries for years. In Pakistan, minority Ahmadi Muslims, Hindu, Sikh and Christian communities had to organise their own rescue efforts during the floods of 2010. They reported discrimination and violition of human rights by Sunni and Shia Muslims.
The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt , Obama and folly
written by Walter Sieruk , March 20, 2013
Obama and his administrartion have engaged and are still engaging in great acts of folly in supporting the radical Islamic group THE MUSLIM BROHERHOOD which is not in power in Egypt. That is last year Obama and sent 1. 5 billion in "aid" plus tanks and M-16's to this group. This year he is yet sending the Islamists of this radical group millions more in "aid." All at the same tim America is in grear debt. This is both outragous and absurd. To add to all this while sending all this "aid" to the Islamists in Egypt Obama is greatly making large cuts in the US defense spending as well as cut in the different US intellengence and information gathering agencies. All this money should and needs to go to America and Homeland security agancies such as the FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA, etc. What wrong with this guy who is in the office of the White House ?. As one former radical Muslam who was also a Hezezbollah member and is now a Christian said "I don't know is he[Obama] is a Muslim or not but his deception is Islamic." Also he said about Obama "Whenever he speaks he sound just like a Muslim." Furthermore, of Obama he also said that "He is going to heart this country."

The money is laundered though 501c3 tax exempt mega churches which are operated by secret Muslims and funnel over seas to help in the destruction of Christianity.You will not see the money,but you can see the results.
USA, a dhimmi country

The Bible said..do not let your alms be before men.And for a very good reason.When people give to an organization like tax exempts,how do they know that the cash goes to help anybody?Wearing Sunday best and being seen throwing money in the bag and looking like Gods gift to the world is not what makes one good.Give in private,and God will see you.Give your neighbor cash to help pay bills when he is down.So when your office give to needy Muslims is it broadcast in the papers or tv? malem,you will not see a dime from me..lad.

Poor Male M...He actually thinks someone believes his lies about being a doctor.
V, about Male
written by Kaser , March 23, 2013
About Malem, I think he is a doctor, but maybe the "quack" variety.
Being a doctor, he must have studied medicine (although what kind of medicine, who knows...)
(My father was an endocrinologist - for you Malem, that a specialist of the endocrine system)

But being a Muslim first and foremost, he discounts what medicine has thought him that does not corresponds to his cult.
For example, he claims men are superior to women. Strength, intelligence, ect...

Strength, of course. Easy to verify. Males are hunters that need strength.
Intelligence??? of course not. Proven time and time again that women have as much intelligence as men. While males, typically one-task experts, hunt and bring back food, women take car of many tasks. Females, multi-task experts, have the same cognitive capabiltities as men. Where I live, they outnumber men in medical schools, and are growing in the ranks of engineering.

In the West, women are taking their rightful place.
In Islamic-societies, cowards like Malem rant, Quran in hand, that Allah gave them control over women.

Living in the West means my daughter will have every opportunity my two sons have.
Malem has sons and grandsons. Then there is the rest.
Pathetic does not even start to describe it.

Now you mention it, Kaser:)
I know of a few doctors that have nothing to do with medicine, he might be one of those...a PC doctor who tells you it's going to cost $200 to fix your computer, then changes a $3 lead and restarts it. He might be a drain Doctor...$400 to put bleach down the storm drain in the street.
I doubt if it's medicine he practices, you need some sort of interest in the wellbeing of man and woman, and the instinct to treat their ailments regardless of gender, origins and beliefs.
Aid to Pakistan after the floods
written by lw1 , March 24, 2013
British public donating privately, separate from the government's aid, was over £ 60 million , but there were two documentaries I watched that showed the most needy did not get any aid at all. A lot of money is alleged to have gone to overseas accounts of the people controlling the money. The trouble is that if people are sent to administer the aid, their safety is a big concern. Look at how polio vaccine personnel are targeted.
Some of the money could end up with terrorists who are settling Sunni/Shia scores.
So any Muslim who is ecstatic about this 'jizya', it is hurting and killing Muslims.

That's the great thing about gifts of money for aid...even card transactions or direct debit.
Serial numbers and account numbers...we can tell exactly where the money is coming from and where it's going to.
Even better when they try to launder it.
