Please read Syria Jihadist Group Force Christians to Submit to Islam or Face Death, by JNS World News, at The Christian Post.
"A powerful Syrian jihadist group with links to al-Qaeda has forced Christian leaders in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa to sign a contract of submission and enter into the medieval Islamic term as "dhimmis" in exchange for their protection.
"The jihadist group—Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIL), which is mostly composed of foreign terrorists—is widely considered to be the most radical group fighting in the Syrian Civil War.
"According to the document, which was posted on a Twitter account of a member of the ISIL, Christians in Raqqa were given the choices to convert to Islam, remain Christian, but submit to Islam, or face death.
"According to Islamic law or "shariah," Jews and Christians living under Muslim rule must pay a tax or "jizya" in return for protection, and become "dhimmis.'"
