It's dhimmitude. The dirty little secret of the Islam's Golden Age is that much of their economy functioned off the poll tax, or jizya, paid by the non-muslims.
Convert, pay tax, or die, Islamic State warns Christians
the 3rd news item is that the Caliph Ibrahim has ordered food rations ceased to Christians or Shiites..
ISIS has ordered government workers to stop giving rations to Christians and Shiites in Mosul, according to a report by Younes Thonon for ankawa.com.
The official in charge of distributing rations in the Rifaq neighborhood said he had received orders from ISIS to cut the rations.

the link does not matter, because its not that important...I am chronicaling the exploits of the Caliph/Caliphate as it pertains to my personal revelation that the 2014 blood-moon tetrad is the feared ' 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse' tetrad found in Revelations for the actual,end-times, tribulation era cycle of the '4 horsemen'
Convert,pay tax, or die
Oh now where have I heard this before ?
Biden says paying higher taxes ‘patriotic’

At least they are offering to kill them quickly......er well, at least quicker than the IRS!
The IRS takes your home, property and freezes all your assets, leaving a person to a slow death.....
Not sure where your going with this one, but just my initial thoughts.
Of course that was all sarcasm, or was it? hmmmmm sorry, just thinking out loud......
