Dhimmitude & Jizya

Reader comment on item: Dhimmitude in Practice

Submitted by Romesh Chander (United States), Dec 30, 2005 at 14:42

I wonder how Muslims will feel if we reversed the situation in US and other western european countries, i.e., consider all Muslims living in the Western 'Christian' countries as Dhimmies, and apply 'Christian / Jewish' Jizya tax to all muslims?. I know, there is no concept of Jizya in Christianity and Judaism; but, for muslims, we could certainly invent one and apply to all of the muslims living here. If they discriminate non-muslims in their countries, why can we not discriminate them in our countries. WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE GANDER IS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE.

Seems that Muslims have no future in the 'Future', only in the 'Past'. With the kind of thinking muslims have, how can they live in modern societies.
