In the classic Mafia protection racket scheme, the owner of a business must pay the pizzo for the Mafia organization to protect the owner from violence by an alleged third party — usually a branch the organization itself. In the same way, the U.S. taxpayer is paying various “moderate” Muslim countries and organization to protect us from extremist Muslim organizations. We pay not only in money, but by chipping away at our individual human rights in order to appease Muslim elements not to go over to the extremist elements.
In many ways, we are already paying the Islamic form of the pizzo — namely, the jizya. Formally, the jizya is a “tax” paid by kafirs already living under Muslim domination. It is a tax that must be paid at risk of losing one’s head. Moreover, the jizya is not just a “head” tax; it is also intended to be a form of humiliation.
