The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, has posted a list of options for Christians in the Syrian city of Raqqa:
1. Convert to Islam
2. Pay a tax equivalent to 1/4 ounce of gold. Remove all symbols of Christianity from public view. Pray only in private. Leave firearms at home.
3. Refuse the first two and become “legitimate targets”. “Nothing will remain between them and ISIS other than the sword.”
ISIS, which took control of Raqqa last year, posted its conditions online.
