Report: Muslim Brotherhood Forcing Coptic Christians to Pay 'Submission' Tax

Report: Muslim Brotherhood Forcing Coptic Christians to Pay 'Submission' Tax

In the Coptic Christian village of Dalga in Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood members and their backers have instituted Islamic law, complete with the Koran’s mandated jizya tax on unbelievers, according to author Raymond Ibrahim. The jizya tax, according to Ibrahim, was instituted historically to pay Islamic masters “‘with willing submission and while feeling themselves subdued’ to safeguard their existence.” 

There are 15,000 Coptic Christians in the area paying the tax. Fr. Yunis Shawqi said that the cost varies between “200 Egyptian pounds per day [and] 500 Egyptian pounds per day.” Families who do not pay are physically assaulted. Syrian rebels are also instituting the jizya tax in certain areas they control.
