Hey Sammy, as I see it, any money given to Muslim countries in return of a favor is jizya, no matter what anybody calls it.

Jizya is a mafia protection racket money extorted from the poor dhimmis with the excuse of providing them protection. Protection from who - Muslims themselves or the dhimmis will be killed.

Egypt got about 1B$ a year ever since Egyptian President Sadat signed a peace treaty with Israel and we offered them this bribe or jizya in return. The money is being given to Egypt even today so as not to kill Israelis. - to put it bluntly. So if it quacks and walks like a jizya it is jizya all right. How long can we afford to continue this racket??? It's high time we stop it right now and put this money to help our own citizens.

Of course Israel is being given money too - but that's another story!!!
