According to details, ISIS has released photos which show ISIS militant receiving money from Christians. Moreover this is confirmed by Syria HR which reveals that ISIS has actually imposed Jaziya (religious tax) on Christians in Al-Qaryatayn, near Homs, Syria.

Syria HR reports: “ISIS received money in the last 48 hours from Christian clerks from the city of al- Qaryatain in the southeast of Homs, where it imposed Jaziya (a religiously required per capita tax on non-Muslims under Islamic law) on the Christians in the city of al- Qaryatain.”

Syria HR further revealed that those Christians who refuse to pay this Jaziya (Religious Tax) are told by the ISIS militants either to convert to Islam or else leave the city. Moreover, those Christians who choose to pay ISIS the Jaziya become “dhimmi”, or protected non-Muslim people under Sharia Law.
