...REFER TO THE PREVIOUS POSTING: "MUSLIMS FEEL PERSECUTED!"
AN ESTEEMED READER, WHO UNDERSTANDS ISLAM THOROUGHLY, HAS PUT THE MANKIND WISER ON THE SUBJECT. HE WRITES:
The REALITIES are worse than stated in your letter to the editor.
Sullah (MUSLIM) scholars ADMIT a program to ENSLAVE EVERY SINGLE, NON-MUSLIM and make ALL of us Dhimmis - i.e. second-class citizens with no rights, paying tribute to Sullah overlords!
Read what the SULLAHS say THEMSELVES!
QURAN COMMANDS JIHAD AND HUMILIATION OF ALL NON-BELIEVERS WHO REFUSE TO EMBRACE ISLAM !
‘FIGHT AGAINST THOSE WHO BELIEVE NOT IN ALLAH, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and the Messenger, and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the People of the Scripture [i.e. Christians and Jews], UNTIL THEY PAY THE JIZYAH [I.E., TRIBUTE TO THE MUSLIMS!] WITH WILLING SUBMISSION, AND FEEL THEMSELVES SUBDUED.’
. . . .
"This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah’s religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims’ control. . . .
"Allah said: ‘UNTIL THEY PAY THE JIZYAH,’ [Quran 9:29], if they doe not choose to embrace Islam,
" ‘WITH WILLING SUBMISSION,’ [Quran 9:29], in defeat and subservience," ‘AND FEEL THEMSELVES SUBDUED,’ [Quran 9:29], DISGRACED, HUMILIATED AND BELITTLED. Therefore, Muslims are not allowed to honor the people of Dhimmah or elevate them above Muslims, for they are miserable, disgraced and humiliated.
"Muslim recorded from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said:
‘Do not initiate the salam to the Jews or Christians, and if you meet any of them in a road, force them to its narrowest alley.’
"This is why the Leader of the faithful [second caliph,] Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, demanded his well-known conditions be met by the Christians [when he conquered Jerusalem], THESE CONDITIONS THAT ENSURED THEIR CONTINUED HUMILIATION, DEGRADATION AND DISGRACE.
"The scholars of Hadith narrated from Abdur-Rahman bin Ghanm Al-Ashari that he said, ‘I recorded for Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, the terms of the treaty of peace he conducted with the Christians of Ash-Sham:
" ‘ " In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This is a document to the servant of Allah Umar, the Leader of the faithful, from the Christians of such and such city.
" ‘ " When you [Muslims] came to us we requested safety for ourselves, children, property and followers of our religion.
" ‘ "We made a condition on ourselves that WE WILL NEITHER ERECT IN OUR AREAS A MONASTERY, CHURCH OR A SANCTUARY FOR A MONK, OR RESTORE ANY PLACE OF WORSHIP THAT NEEDS RESTORATION nor use any of them for the purpose of enmity against Muslims.
" ‘ "We will not prevent any Muslim from resting in our churches whether they come by day or night, and we will open the doors [of our houses of worship] for the wayfarer and passerby. Those Muslims who come as guest, will enjoy boarding and food for three days.
" ‘ "We will not allow a spy against Muslims into our churches homes or hide deceit [or betrayal] against Muslims
" ‘ "WE WILL NOT TEACH OUR CHILDREN THE QURAN, PUBLICIZE PRACTICES OF SHIRK OR PREVENT ANY OF OUR FELLOWS FROM EMBRACING ISLAM, IF THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO.
" ‘ "WE WILL RESPECT MUSLIMS, MOVE FROM PLACES WE SIT IF THEY CHOOSE TO SIT IN THEM.
" ‘ "WE WILL NOT IMITATE THEIR CLOTHING, CAPS, TURBANS, SANDALS, HARISTYLES, SPEECH, NICKNAMS AND TITLE NAMES, or ride on saddles, hang swords on the shoulders, collect weapons of any kind or carry these weapons.
" ‘ "We will not encrypt our stamps in Arabic, or sell liquor.
" ‘ "We will have the front of our hair cut, wear our customary clothes wherever we are, wear belts around our waist, REFRAIN FROM ERECTING CROSSES ON THE OUTSIDE OF OUR CHURCHES AND DEMONSTRATING THEM AND OUR BOOKS IN PUBLIC IN MUSLIM FAIRWAYS AND MARKETS.
" ‘ "WE WILL NOT SOUND THE BELLS IN OUR CHURCHES, EXCEPT DISCRETELY, OR RAISE OUR VOICES WHILE RECITING OUR HOLY BOOKS INSIDE OUR CHURCHES IN THE PRESENCE OF MUSLIMS, NOR RAISE OUR VOICES [WITH PRAYER] AT OUR FUNERALS, or light torches in funeral processions in the fairways of Muslims, or their markets.
" ‘ "We will not bury our dead next to the Muslim dead, or buy servants who were captured by Muslims
" ‘ "We will be guides for Muslims and refrain from breaching their privacy in their homes."
" ‘ When I gave this document to Umar , he added to it,
" ‘ "We will not beat any Muslim. These are the conditions that we set against ourselves and followers of our religion in return for safety and protection. If we break any of these promises that we set for your benefit against ourselves, then out Dhimmah [promise of protection] is broken and you are allowed to do with us what you are allowed of people of defiance and rebellion."’"

PAKISTANI SCHOLAR ADMITS QURAN STILL ORDERS JIHAD AND COLLECTION OF JIZYAH1
This is the comment of Seyed Abul A’la Maududi on Quran 9:29:
"This is the aim of Jihad with the Jews and Christians . . . . THEY SHOULD BE FORCED TO PAY JIZYAH IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO THEIR INDEPENDENCE AND SUPREMACY SO THAT THEY SHOULD NOT REMAIN SOVEREIGNS IN THE LAND.
These powers should be wrested from them by the followers of the true Faith, who should assume sovereignty and lead others towards the Right Way, while they should become their subjects and pay jizyah. . . .
"At first this Command applied only to the Jews and Christians. Then the Holy Prophet himself extended it to the Zoroastrians also. After his death, the Companions unanimously applied this
rule to ALL THE NON-MUSLIM NATIONS OUTSIDE ARABIA. [Because INSIDE Arabia,
Islam offers only two choices (1) convert to Islam or (2) die!]
"This is ‘jizyah’ of which the Muslims have been felling apologetic during the last two centuries of their degeneration and there are still some people who continue to apologize for it. But the Way of Allah is straight and clear and does not stand in need of any apology to rebels against Allah. . . ."
