The U.S. Must Pay the Jizya

The jizya is a tax that infidels (non-Muslims) must pay in order not to be brutalized by Allah's chosen.

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 Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.  Qur'an 9:29

It is basically a protection racket.  Think Mafia run by religious zealots.  In this case, as President Obama sees it, in order not to suffer terrible disruption ("a deepening spiral of division") by justifiably irate Muslims, the U.S. must pay up.  It is part of the Obama Doctrine: billions for tribute but not one more cent for defense.

Justifiable anger?  Invasion of Arab lands, stealing Arab oil, propping up the Shah.  Drawing cartoons of Mohammed.  The list goes on.

This is Obama's jizya plan to placate our Arab overlords: forgive up to $1 billion in debt Egypt owes the U.S.  Secure $1 billion in loan guarantees for the region from the International Monetary Fund.  Secure more billions from the World Bank and the European Bank for "reconstruction and development" -- the Europeans must pay their fair share of jizya.  Then, of course, throw an ally or two under the bus.  What's a little lost sovereignty and betrayal of allies for some peace of mind?  As Caroline Glick puts it:

Beyond his abandonment of Bahrain and Yemen, in claiming that the US mustn't distinguish between its allies and its foes, Obama made clear that he has renounced the US's right to have and pursue national interests. If you can't favor your allies against your enemies then you cannot defend your national interests. And if you cannot defend your national interests then you renounce your right to have them.

That should mollify our Arab overlords.  Although Obama might have to make another Middle East Apology Tour and show us that cute little curtsy of his.
