Jizya?? HA!

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas - The Veiled Threat Continues
in response to reader comment: Jihad means salvation of Self and the Other

What kind of a fool thinks I am not capable of defending myself? Mine are a warrior folk and we have been around a lot longer than Islam. We know well the arts of war. We are not a lot of soft skinned shop keepers! As well, if I was living in a Muslim country who would I have to worry about defending myself against except Muslims? Are Muslims so devoid of civility that they would attack an unarmed and peaceful man? I think the record speaks for itself.

Given that light, perhaps we should charge the Muslims living in our country a Jizya tax for the priveledge of living amongst us. No?
