Iraqi Christians must “Pay the Protection Money or Die”

Jizyah (جزْية) is the extra tax imposed on non-Muslims who live under Muslim rule according to the Qur’an.

Qur’an 9:29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold forbidden that which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
