Catholic Arbishop Rahho’s murder

with 4 comments

Was he kidnapped and then killed (more in Wikipedia: “Rahho expressed disquiet at the moves to incorporate Sharia law more fundamentally into the Iraqi constitution“) because he had stopped paying the jizya?

American military officials now say that as security began to improve around Iraq last year, Archbishop Rahho, 65, stopped paying the protection money, one sliver of the frightening larger shadow of violence and persecution that has forced hundreds of thousands of Christians from Iraq. That decision, the officials say, may be why he was kidnapped in February. Two weeks later, his body was found in a shallow grave outside Mosul, the biblical city of Nineveh.

Now just take this into account:

The native infidel “dhimmi” (which derives from both the word for “pact”, and also “guilt” — guilty of religious errors) population had to recognize Islamic ownership of their land, submit to Islamic law, and accept payment of the Koranic poll tax (jizya)-the tax paid in lieu of being slain-based on Koran 9:29. Al- Mawardi notes that:
The enemy makes a payment in return for peace and reconciliation… Reconciliation and security last as long as the pavment is made. If the payment ceases, then the jihad resumes.”
