Yes, well, dhimmitude can be revoked at any time by Muslims. It's really just a condition of laws and abuses that attempt to humiliate those living under them into conversion to stop the abuse.

However, the way the Caliph has been treating other Muslims, I was really surprised to hear that he'd made the offer of dhimmitude to Christians in the area to begin with. I figured he's just say "Convert or die."

When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000. In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching.

In the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the Islamic State in Mosul, has painted the letter “N” for Nazarene on the houses of all the surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.

Why is it that the mainstream press is not interested in the story?

Let's face it, this is a Christian version of the Holocaust and nothing less.

The mainstream media is in full support of the White House narrative “that the President single-handedly killed Osama Bin Laden, and that Al Qaeda is now on the ropes; therefore, jihad must be shriveling up around the world.” This myopic strategy of only targeting Al Qaeda has provided great opportunities for other jihadists and has given rise to ISIS.

To the mainstream media, the dark skin person always has to be the victim. Either the Hamas terrorist in Gaza, the Nicaraguan gang bangers coming across the border likened to juvenile political refugees... the idea that the white skin Christian or the Israelis as victims, that goes against every narrative this media wishes to pedal. They are necessarily so locked into their own ideological vision of the world.

To compare the main topic of the OP to higher taxes on the wealthy is hilarious...
