A jihadist group in Syria said Wednesday that Christians in the city of Raqa will have to pay taxes and hold religious rituals behind closed doors, under a set of rules.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), listed 12 rules which made up an "agreement" with Christians in the northern city to provide "protection."
Christians must pay a "jiziyeh" tax, as imposed in early Islam on non-Muslim subjects.
also demands Christians "do not put on display a cross or anything from their book, anywhere on Muslims' path or markets" and that they should not "use megaphones to make their prayers heard."
Christians must also refrain from "holding any of their rituals... outside the church."
The jihadist group demands that Christians follow "rules imposed by ISIL, such as those relating to modesty in clothing."
ISIL is rooted in Al-Qaeda in Iraq, which also imposed the jiziyeh tax on Christians after the US-led invasion of 2003.
Christians "must not restore any monasteries or churches... in their city or elsewhere in the vicinity."
Christians must not carry arms

Coming soon for Christians in the USA
ISIL - “Friends of Kerry”, “Obama”, “Malley”, “Rice”?
Another Administration “success”, except for the Christians of Syria (a country which will, in the future, become “Christianfrei” just like it became “Judenfrei”).
Coming to Arizona first?
Obama, McCain, Graham and the Saudis rejoice.
I would suspect that each will soon have to wear a white cross on their outer garments when in public. Then will come the “relocation camps” where “work will make you free”......
Minnesota more likely, with all the Somalis
(Side note: Oh, God. Karl Rove now claiming he supported Rand Paul in the Kentucky primary. Is anyone buying this pig’s BS?)
Prophecy is coming true. I don’t think there’s much time left before the trumpets start up
Save Thy people, O Lord,
and bless Thine inheritance.
Grant victory to Thy Church over her enemies,
and protect Thy people by Thy Holy Cross!
Islam needs to be totally eradicated from this planet .
Then , and only then , we may know peace .
Go f*** yourselves.
A old Arab proverb says, “My enemies enemy is my friend.”
Syria is definitely my enemy, Al Qaeda is definitely my enemy, Al Qaeda is fighting Syria. Thus I have two enemies fighting each other. Aside from the horror on the innocents, this is not a bad deal.
This begs the question, which one is my friend? The answer is simple. The one that opposes the winner between the Syrian Government and Al Qaeda is my friend. Israel?
I lived and worked in the Middle East for years and know of which I speak. In actuality I have great compassion for the vast majority of the populace that are nothing but innocents of no value or importance to the despots and religious leaders at the top. Their lives are of no value to those leaders.
Sunni Muslims ( aka: al Qaeda rebels trained and financed by Saudi Arabia, US, etc. ) : many from Chechnya ?
Using weapons from the Benghazi and other operations.
As you may know , the Shia and Sunni have been on their Jihad against each other and everyone else since the 7th Century.
In the New, Inmproved USA, the Feral Government lets us pretend to be Christians as long as we don't actually try to live by our beliefs.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
That's our friends, the peaceful opposition.
Sounds like the Cristiada/Cristeros wars of Mexico during the 1920s where Calles tried to outlaw the Catholic Church.
See “Greater Glory” or reading the companion answer and question booklet by Quezada
On holy days such as Palm Sunday, Holy Friday, Pascha, and Pentecost, we Orthodox have processions around our Temples. And we ring our bells before Divine Liturgy and during Holy Friday and Pascha services!!!!
PHOOEY to islam!!!!!
Meanwhile, the decadent and dying EU, Soros, obama and his minions, the Uniates, and assorted false brothers, are imposing “rules” on Orthodox Christians in Ukraine.
PHOOEY to the New World Order!!!!
The Christians are going to have to arm themselves and fight back the way the Christian militias did in Lebanon (without the Shetila massacres).
If you think that Obama gives a damn about Christians in the Arab world, he doesn’t. He’s not a Christian in the typical sense (Rev. Wright made sure of that), and he’s openly pro-Moslem in many of his statements and actions.
Now you know how we Jews have felt for centuries. Abandoned, alone, and often unarmed or underarmed.
Christians need a new “Charles Martel” and other individual Christian leaders/fighters who stood up to oppression, from France, Spain, Hungary, Poland, to Vienna, Venice and Constantinople. Who that is, is the biggest question I see for world christianity.
Hitler or Stalin, or both, were basically right to ask “How many divisions does the Pope have”?
