Trump to American Muslims: Embrace Christianity, Pay Jizya, or Die?

Raymond Ibrahim, An honest Muslim wonders what if the shoe was on the other foot. As American liberals/leftists continue to portray Donald Trump’s immigration ban on seven Muslim nations in the worst possible terms—from “racist” to “Islamophobic”—and Muslim activists continue to claim “shock and trauma,” a lone Egyptian man has asked some relevant questions that
