Syrian Christians Forced To Pay Gold Or Die

The Islamic State of Iraq and the ISIS in Syria have ordered Christians in Raqqa, Syria to pay nearly 38 pounds of gold as a “guarantee of their safety.” This requirement is part of implementing Shariah Law. Each ounce would cost about $1,330 making the total needed for the required 600-plus ouncesĀ of gold more than $800,000. Dividing that up between 3,000 Christians equals $260 / person in gold. The Christians were offered 3 choices: convert to Islam, accept ISIS conditions or reject their control and possibly be killed.
