Christians in a northern city in Iraq are reportedly being ordered to pay a $250 per person tax to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria–or ISIS.
This could bankrupt many in the region where the most likely job opportunity is a vegetable shop.
It’s really a tithe Christians are forced to pay to Islam–to keep from being shot, beheaded, raped, kidnapped, and burned from those espousing a “religion of peace.”
The Associated Press reported that at least half of Iraq’s Christians have been forced to leave the country since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003–the remaining Christians face the prospect of Shariah law, the goal of Sunni Muslims.
