Dhimmi Watch: IslamOnline: jizya is "fair"
The lie that jizya, or the tribute extracted on non-Muslim subjects, was fair, was promoted by Kareem Kysia, a graduate student from the University of Chicago who participated in discussion forums hosted by the Washington Post. He argued that dhimmis were "exempted" from conscription in exchange for paying jizya, or tribute tax, as though this exemption was some kind of privilege. I think it's because their crafty Muslim overlords knew better than to hand non-Muslims the means of their destruction!
