Obviously ignorant of history.
Jizya has been going on for centuries since the earliest times of the Islamic conquests. It was in place in all the conquered territories of Islam where the official religion of the state was Islam. The only people that were required to convert “or die” were those who were NOT members of any religions of “the book” (ie Jews, Christians, Sabians with Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists and Mandaens added later in history). These were all called “dhimmi” which translates to “protected”.
All others were infidels and were killed if they didnt convert. That is not a large number of religions left to be killed if you look at that long list of “protected” religions.
However, all of that is dependent on the interpretation of whatever psycho radical is in charge at the time. Islam has been hijacked by those radicals with the actual muslims being as complacent about it as the uninformed voters are in the USA regarding the hijacking of our liberties.
So even tho the you are off base concerning the “convert or die” rhetoric as regards actual Islam it would not be far from a possibility with the pseudo muslims that are the squeaky wheels in that modern religion.

Why is anyone surprised by this?? It has been going on for hundreds of years. The term has been known as dhimmitude for centuries. Dhimmi are the non-muslims of a muslim state and the state of existence is dhimmitude where they are protected by the muslims but pay protection money for it. They are not given full rights (cannot hold public office, cannot own weapons, restrictions on types of transportation, clothing they could wear, etc) but depending on the local interpretation of the Koran they do get protection from some sharia such as the restriction from eating pork, drinking alcohol, etc which many dhimmi are allowed to do.
Basically dhimmitude confirms that anyone other than muslims are lesser people and require protection. Very similar to affirmative action in modern USA.

Ironic that the Republicans actualy said this was going to happen and a large number of liberal blacks either told us that we were just racists or they believed it when others said it.
when it comes to economics, free market and business conservatives do know what they are talking about. After all you idiots on the left make a big deal about how the rich are all Republicans. Too bad that you cant make the connection that if they got rich then maybe they know how the economy ACTUALLY works.

Yes it’s “Spanish” class not “Mexican” class. Why are they reciting the Mexican pledge and anthem. Seeing as Mexican isn’t Spanish shouldn’t it be the Spanish anthem/pledge? That ought to tell you what is REALLY going on here.
The school principal supported the teacher. HELLO, the principal’s name is Cavazo.
