JASTA or Jizya? Jefferson vs. the Brown-Eyed Ransom Man: Showdown on the Shores of Tripoli

Over-Ridden Veto Nails Fungus!

"Flying across the desert in a TWA
I saw a mullah walking across the sand
He's been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to get paid
money from a brown eyed Ransom man
His Jizya-payer was a brown eyed Ransom man!"
"Picture to yourself your Brother Citizens or Unfortunate Countrymen in the Algerian State Prisons  or Damned Castille, starved 2/3rds and Naked...Once a Citizen of the United States of America, but at present, the Most Miserable Slave in Algiers."--USS Dauphin Capt. Richard O'Brian, Diary, Feb. 19, 1790

Now picture your Brother Citizen trapped in an armored vehicle struck by an Iranian IED. Or your Unfortunate Countrymen trapped in an airplane or in a burning skyscraper by a Saudi-funded cabal of conspirators. That's why Obama had to eat his JASTA veto.

The Koran demands conflict with the infidels until they pay the mandated humiliating Jizya Tax. And the Left loves taxes, man dates and tax mandates--and humiliating America. Our ships were taken hostage by the Barbary Pirates, yes--but also by the Leftist Revolutionary France.

In Obama's Mental Caliphate, Jizya money is supposed to flow from America the Guilty to Islamic regimes--not the other way around. That's why he opposes the bill, not because Americans might be sued.
"They wanted Three Hundred Million cash--but I held out for Four!"
Yes, there is a case that if this standard were applied to America, it might open up American troops, diplomats and taxpayers to lawsuits. But to Obama, that's a feature, not a bug. A wonderful prospect--but not at the price of Americans being able to sue Islamic regimes. The Jizya must flow one way only.

A Dhimmi is a second or third-class citizen. For example, anyone not named "Clinton".
That's why, for example, we spent $770m to renovate mosques in Egypt, Cypress and Mali--to include computers and internet (what could possibly go wrong?). It's not a goodwill gesture--it's Jizya.

Compare Obama's treatment of 9/11 victims to his tender solicitude for Iran. There was no court judgment ordering us to pay Iran. Obama was acting as Iran's lawyer and pronounced America guilty and paid them out of the Judgment Fund--and he was the judge. Also jury, plaintiff's counsel and ransom bagman.

The Ayatollah let bin Laden operate freely out of Iran. They made the IEDs in Iraq, maiming and murdering hundreds of Americans. They bombed the Marine Barracks in Beirut and Khobar Towers. What price for the lives of those "Brother Citizens or Unfortunate Countrymen"?

Even the flowers and upkeep at Arlington alone are expensive. The other costs staggering; The PTSD counseling. The prosthetics. The life-long care. Is Obama counterclaiming for all those damages?  Hell no. America had it coming, he judges. The price for those lives? Zero. In fact, less than zero. "So sorry, Mr. Mullah--we'll pay you for your trouble," says Barry the Bagman.
Submission Accomplished: "On second thought, Jengis Khan was a great prophet,
a wonderful family man and, I'm told, a pretty decent scratch bowler. What is this "bowling", anyway?"
Why are Obama and His Supreme Leader so desperate to stop this bill? Guess what; now Americans can sue Iran, too! 

Obama is fond of saying how Islam has been with us since our beginnings. How right he is:

Hitch: "One cannot get around what Jefferson heard when he went with John Adams to wait upon Tripoli’s ambassador to London in March 1785. When they inquired by what right the Barbary states preyed upon American shipping, enslaving both crews and passengers, America’s two foremost envoys were informed that “it was written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Jefferson decided from that moment on that he would make war upon the Barbary kingdoms as soon as he commanded American forces. ...

A complete disaster—Tripoli’s capture of the new U.S. frigate Philadelphia—became a sort of triumph, thanks to Edward Preble and Stephen Decatur, who mounted a daring raid on Tripoli’s harbor and blew up the captured ship, while inflicting heavy damage on the city’s defenses. ..Francis Scott Key composed a patriotic song to mark the occasion..."from the shores of Tripoli"...brushed up and revised a little for the War of 1812, and set to the same music, it has enjoyed considerable success since. [Kipling:]

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that plays it is lost!”

It may be fortunate that the United States had to pass this test, and imbibe this lesson, so early in its life as a nation."...................

 "Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense
that goes by the name of patriotism - how passionately I hate them!" 
Real patriots despise false patriotism, but they toast the true:
"Our country! In her intercourse with foreign nations, may she always be in the right;
 but our country, right or wrong!"--Commodore Stephen Decatur
The Scripture teaches that there are no second-class people. And Jesus Christ already paid all our debt if we believe in Him. The Constitution echoes this, as Rev. King knew well.

No Sharia Law. The Constitution instead.
No Dhimmitude. Equal Protection here.
No Taqiyya, or "holy" subterfuge. Truth only.
No Jizya. Freedom of Conscience is our creed.

JASTA stops Jizya. Our attorney will be in touch:
"Money is their God and Mahomet is their prophet."--Capt. Richard O'Brian
