Jizya: Substitute "Labor Unions" for "Allah"

Eerie similarity: Islam and Forced-Labor Union Dues

Is jizya – the money non-Muslims historically paid their Muslim conquerors – meant to buy them “protection,” including from outside enemies, as modern Western academics maintain? Or was it simply extortion money meant to buy non-Muslims their lives, as Islam’s scriptures mandate?

The word "jizya" appears in Koran 9:29:
“Fight those among the People of the Book who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, nor forbid what Allah and his Messenger have forbidden, nor embrace the religion of truth, until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (emphasis added).
In short, jizya is an ugly fact of Islam – one that, distort as they may, the academics can’t whitewash, even as the world stands idly by, watching its resumption in the twenty-first century.
