  Jizya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The imposition of jizya upon non-Muslims is mandated by Sura 9.29 of the Qur'an.
Jizya is imposed on non-Muslim "People of the Book" to humble them; also, they do not have to pay zakat, which is paid by Muslims as mandatory charity.
Jizya was levied in the time of Muhammad on vassal tribes under Muslim protection, including Jews in Khaybar, Christians in Najran, and Zoroastrians in Bahrain.

 Talk:Jizya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The word jizya in the Qur'an does not specifically mean a monetary tax, but the term was later applied to a monetary tax.
"'Jizya' is derived from the root "Jaza" or "compensate".
The article says that the imposition of jizya was mandated by the sura, when in fact it was the word jizya that was derived from the sura, not the actual practical definition of a monetary tax.

 Dhimmi Watch: IslamOnline: jizya is "fair"
The jizya was not paid as a bribe for practicing their faith, but rather as compensation for not serving in the army, protection for Crusading armies and tribal warfare.
This assumes that jizya and zakat are equivalent, and other Muslims assert, as I have said, that the jizya is actually less than zakat.
If jizya is fair because Infidels to not serve in 'Crusading armies' then surely a special tax on Muslims, particularly Muslim State's who aid global jihad, is also fair, simply to pay for increased security measures and other military operations: and that tab is at the hundreds of billions and running.

The Prophet was instructed by revelation to institute the jizya, a tax to be paid by non-Muslims living under the Islamic dispensation.
The practice of jizya, and the terminology 'dhimmis' (the protected ones) for those who pay this tax, is oft cited as evidence of Islam's contempt of non-Muslims and its oppressiveness.
The collectors of the jizya were particularly instructed to show leniency, and refrain from all harsh treatment or the infliction of corporal punishment, in case of non-payment".

 Origin of Islam in its Christian Environment
But if they agreed to pay the tribute (Jizya) they were to be tolerated in their religion.
But according to Moslem Law, as it afterwards took shape, the Jizya was a poll-tax levied at so much per head upon the adult male population (women and children and imbeciles not being reckoned), while the Kharaj was levied on the produce of the land.
In return for these payments the non-Moslem population were entitled to protection so far as the Moslem armies could afford it, not being required to serve in military expeditions; and they were not interfered with in the practice of their religion.

 “Democrats” For Jihad and Jizya - Sean Hannity Discussion
Under the Sharia’s regulations, either the non-Muslim infidels must convert to Islam, or they pay the jizya—classically, in a humiliating public ceremony which often involved blows to the head or neck—and their life and belongings are protected.
The inescapable conclusion is that the attendant Shari’a-based regulations associated with the jizya will also be imposed—all of which amount to gross violations of the most basic human rights norms (i.e., freedom of conscience, speech, and worship, codified for example, in the US Bill of Rights) accepted by modern, civilized societies worldwide.
Responding to an uncharacteristic European Union threat to terminate its own de facto jizya, i.e., “aid” payments to the Palestinian Authority, should Hamas gain significant Parliamentary seats in the January elections, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal warned about the dangers of “playing with the values of democracy and freedom”.
