Islamic State tells Muslims to steal from infidels and send them 20%, a post from, with comments for additional reading pleasure

Where did they get the idea for this? You guessed it:

“And know that anything you obtain of war booty – then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for near relatives and the orphans, the needy, and the traveler, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our Servant on the day of criterion – the day when the two armies met. And Allah, over all things, is competent.” (Qur’an 8:41)

The Islamic State believes that the world’s Muslims are at war with the world’s non-Muslims, and are thus entitled to the spoils of war, of which a fifth belongs to them as the caliphate, the sole legitimate government for Muslims.

And of course the Infidels’ wealth and property belongs to the Muslims by right, for the Qur’an specofoes that Muslims must fight them until the “pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29). So the Infidels paying for the upkeep of the Muslims is the natural order of things.

“ISIS Tells Muslims to Go Steal, Send the Caliphate 20 Percent of the Loot,” by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, April 5, 2017:

The newest issue of ISIS’ English-language Rumiyah magazine released today encourages old-fashioned theft and looting to help fund the Islamic State, with target suggestions including an armored truck full of cash or an electronics superstore.

The article declares that the wealth of kafir, or disbelievers, is “halal,” so Muslims should “take it” — as long as they remit one-fifth to the caliphate.

The article cites a hadith to show “the clear permissibility of spilling their blood and taking their wealth until they accept Islam… all kuffar who are not under the contract of dhimmah are enemies from whom ghanimah [booty] is taken.”

The writer argues that aside from istijarah, or a safe passage covenant, and the jizyah tax, “the only relationship the Muslim has to the kuffar is that of the sword, i.e. physically waging jihad against them. And any attack on the kuffar, including that which is financial, is jihad. In this regard, any wealth taken from the kuffar through deception or defeat is considered ghanimah.”

“Whether the financial damage is on an individual kafir or the cause of perpetual loss to a business, the Muslim in Dar al-Kufr [land of disbelievers] has the opportunity to follow this blessed sunnah, striking terror by stalking the kuffar and causing them economic harm. There should be no misunderstanding about the excellence of this deed, as taking this wealth is in accordance with the command of Allah.”

Of this stolen wealth, ISIS directs, 20 percent “should be set aside and given to the Khalifah or to an official representative of the Khalifah for those who are able.”

But “whoever kills a kafir – for which he has proof of his killing him” gets to keep all the loot. Or, specifically, “whatever the kafir possesses at the time and place he is killed.”

“This includes his clothing, jewelry, all kinds of weapons, gold, silver, currencies, as well as the vehicle he was using, and so forth,” ISIS adds.

And there’s another loophole: “The one who kills a kafir on a dark street or in an alleyway, while no one else is around, does not need evidence of his kill in order to take the salab [personal belongings].”

“As for the wealth of a business or any wealth which was taken through deception, instead of killing an individual, then that is not salab. Rather, this is ghanimah that must be divided accordingly,” the ISIS article directs.

The terror group insisted the tactic “is to invade [disbelievers’] lands and damage them with the loss of life and wealth.”

“So it is not enough to defend Muslim land and incite oneself to do so, but one must hate the kuffar and long for causing them harm in their own lands. And this must be done with the pure intention of seeking to make the word of Allah the highest, even if the benefits of ghanimah are a result of one’s blessed operation for Allah’s cause.”

The last sentence defines “property” that can be included in these booty-collecting operations to include people: “May Allah, the Most Generous, make the kuffar’s wealth, weapons, women, and children ghanimah for those who strive for His cause.”…

    Jihad is not ONLY military. Jihad is 1) military 2) verbal (shielding Islam from criticism) 3) by writing (i.e. legislating to remove obstacles to JIHAD) 4) financial help and financial sabotage.

    Remember that 9/11 was financial sabotage aimed at the World Trade Center.

        Christianity is not a bad religion and Jesus summed it up in three statements, roughly this:
        1. Love God
        2. Love your neighbor as yourself
        3. The whole law is based on the previous two.

        Simple. Something like this
        1. If good stuff happens, say glory to God. If bad stuff happens, this is with God’s permission.
        2. Do to others what you want done to yourself. If you do not want to harm yourself you would not harm others. Yet there are people than cut themselves and commit suicides. Without such people life would be okay if the two rules are observed or just 2 is observed.
        3. go back to 1 and 2.

          Those statements of Jesus are to REPLACE all the previous laws and rules of the Old Testament. In short, what he meant was that following all the tiny Jewish rules will not get you closer to God. You get there through faith, not by doing things (works) and having lots of rules and law.

          Which brings up another matter regarding Islam. So God saw fit to replace all the Jewish rules and laws with those three by Jesus. One should ask why would this same God 600 years after Jesus; create a whole new religion again is based solely on works? If fact, a religion that has far, far more rules than the Jewish Community ever had.

          This is a fundamental flaw in Islam. There had already been a set of laws that humans could not completely obey and it was replaced with Jesus’s teachings. There was no need to try it all over again with Islam. It seems that Islam must be false at its core, or be supporting a God (or other Being) in neither of the Testaments.

          I believe that we have a perfectly thorough understanding of what Islam is.

          I really want everybody to understand this, the US openly supports jihadis.

      Trump is helping ISIS and Al-qaeda in syria . ISIS and Al-qaeda Sunni Jihadi are celebrating as Trump Bombs Syrian Airbase used to launch attacks against these jihadi groups.

      And Dumb Trump wants us to believe he is fighting ISIS ?! Syrian Govt has no reason to use chemical weapons when they have all but won the battle and they are just doing moping up operations.

      Russia was Right when first such chemical attack occurred and it was proven even by UN independent inspector that is was Rebels who did it.

      Chemical weapons were used by “rebels” jihadis and those were supplied by UK based company as per instructions from then UK govt with support from saudi, USA.

      It was to be used by “rebels” against civilian population to then blame Assad govt and use it as Pretext to go to war to takeout a Pro – christian regime and handover Syria to sunni jihadi who were slaughtering christians wherever they found them.

      And Now Dumb Trump did exactly what ISIS wants ! And Dumb Trump thinks he is fighting ISIS !

      The real vicious snakes are politicians/bureaucrats who are on payroll of saudi/Defence industries that feed false “intelligence” report and then demand immediate action even when real facts counter the false narrative.

      At least Bush took time to build case against saddam hussein and it was crooked idiots like Colin powell , politicians on Payroll of defence industries who supported and demanded action. Bush was like a fool who was played by these corrupt self serving crooks.

          K.9.29 is NORMATIVE Islam, rather than an aberration. The caliph is REMINDING Muslims of the NEGLECTED DUTY of jihad … the duty to show OPEN HOSTILITY and to HUMILIATE the kafirs.

          Western kafirs are not under a DHIMMI CONTRACT and so it is the HOUSE OF WAR (Dar al Harb) where ALL HOSTILE ACTIONS are presently authorized by the CALIPH HIMSELF.

          When the CALIPH gives a JIHAD ORDER, ALL MOHAMMEDANS are obligated to obey.

    If Muslims are naive enough to follow this advice then the money and stolen goods will be going through a local Mosque. The Imam will be acting as a local gang leader and can be arrested for receiving stolen goods. The third time it happens at the same Mosque it shows he was the gang boss not just an innocent prayer leader.

    When the police reduce racial tension by arresting the Imam his gang, disguised as a congregation, may riot to spring him. They can be arrested for accessory to resisting arrest, perverting the course of justice, rioting, property damage and possibly conspiracy to robbery. Part of the preparations for the arrest raid on the Imam should be deploying the Riot Squad and SWAT team.

    If they succeed, then eventually the source of loot is ,… gone. All used up.

    The land is laid waste. The girls have all been raped to death, and are dead. The slaves stop producing… because they, too, have been so grossly abused, that they *die*; and then there are no slaves to go on doing the productive work.

    It’s curious how allah in his koran(the most perfectly written uncreated book ever written)completely failed to enumerate God’s commandments {k7:145}.

    Pious platitudes don’t count{k17:22-39}and in any case allah is always happy to equivocate and twist the commandments of God to suit himself.
    Certainly allah’s messenger(mahomet,the al Insan al Kamil,the most perfect man who ever lived…I know,I know it’s difficult not to laugh when you know about his murderous life and his peculiar love of camel juice)…didn’t seem to know what a commandment was.

    For example,adultery may in theory be frowned upon in islam (but allah is OK with a devout muslim man having sex with a slave girl( k23:1-6/k4:24)

    As for the prohibition on murder in God’s Sixth commandment,allah seems to have completely missed that one….
    ‘slay the unbelievers’,behead,terrorize,maim and crucify those who follow other scriptures than the koran….melt their bellies…

    Then we have stealing.God would forbid stealing of course but allah is fine with it as long as it is from infidels.

    So we have a pattern here of allah encouraging his followers to either break or manipulate God’s commandments ….just as long as it is against the infidels.

    We have the voice of- human -prejudice too with allah cursing the Jews and the Christians.
    allah,the great Arab in the sky with his silly 99 names really can’t stand the Jews.

    Oh,and allah with his koran(the most perfect book)totally missed the most important aspect of God….the Two Chief Commandments
    .{sarc on/}Yes it’s a completely mystery isn’t it?Why allah left that out.

    Always when I read the koran I wish allah had included an enumeration of God’s commandments-even an appendix.Almighty God(the true Biblical version) would not make that mistake!
    Perhaps allah didn’t want people to know about how wrong it is to twist God’s commandments to suit yourself like in the case above where Islamic state is happy to encourage its followers ,in the name of allah,to sin against God by stealing.Muslims don’t understand that breaking God’s commandments is a sin and that their allah is wrong to encourage that.

    Once you can differentiate between allah and God then you will see how allah is actually in conflict with God’s commandments.
    Take any one of God’s commandments and see what allah says.

    Thou shalt not kill(except infidels)
    Thou shalt not steal(except from infidels)
    Thou shalt not commit adultery(except with slave girls)

    So says allah of the 99 names with his book
    the koran(the most perfect book ever written)
    and his prophet
    (the most perfect man who ever lived)
    And between them they don’t seem to understand the importance of obeying God’s commandments.

    I wonder what percentage of all those ‘NICE MUSLIMS’ will secretly plunder the dirty kafirs when they get a chance. In 1915, the caliph of Constantinople published a Universal Fatwa calling ‘all Mohammedans’ to fight infidels at war with the Ottoman Empire. In Australia, two Kurdish Muslims shot up a train filled with holiday makers before a final shootout with police. It sounds just like the ‘truck of peace’ attacks on public holidays.

    Surely, a small number of Muslims can be expected to rob their kafir neighbours, but which ones?

    Those jihad-minded Muslims of ISIS who instruct other Muslims to steal from non-Muslims and then send them some of that money. There are among many things wrong as well as inconsistent. For according to the founder and prophet of Islam, Muhammad ,taught that all Muslims should respect the Bible. For example a Muslim doctor who works in the hospital in the city which I live told me “We Muslim respect the Bible and believe in the Ten Commandments contained in it”‘ Well, those Muslims who compose ISIS must ,as well as other Muslims, only give empty lip service to respect to the Bible and belief in the Ten Commandments . For in Exodus 20 :1-17 the Ten Commandments are give .One of them are “You will not not steal” [v 15] Given the above information that eighth commandment is violated .Of course ISIS breaks the law of god .Likewise. ISIS murderous also breaks Commandment number seven .Which is “You shall not murder. ” [V 13] [N.K.J.V.]

    Beware! An app I did not download appeared on my iPad. Looked similar to the native iPad mail app. I opened it and it wanted my email info, which of course I did not furnish. Sorry but I now believe any and all things of this sort are jihadis trying to get my cc and banking info. They are devious and determined.

    This is another craze things muslims think they can get. They must be so messed up in their heads.
    But one other thing that must get out of my mind. I find it realy terrible that many companies from all different countries can (and do ) sell the most horrible war equipment, rockets, chemicals, etc to all sides. Mostly it is forbidden by law, but most companies don’t care and do it anyway, and when they are found out, no repercussions . That in my opinion is treason too.
    But all for the money, money talks. I wan’t go into details, but that should be stopped too.
    The quor an, the moslims, the leftists, and the death silence, but it still will not work for them. There is hope !!!

    ISIS, or Al Qaeda, or whatever is a silly joke so long as they don’t focus to liberate Palestine from Israel. Do the hashishes make them forget where Jerusalem is? In terms of guts ISIS is a long way to go before reaching the level of Hesbollah – despite being Shiites – and Hamas, et cetera
    In a nutshell, for years ISIS have not proven themselves as something or whatever so long as they don’t fight all out against Israeli invasion.

  2. θ says:

    ISIS, or Al Qaeda, or whatever don’t have a zeal for the House of God.

  3. θ says:

    Had ISIS and Al Qaeda fought against Israeli invaders, the great influx of the refugees was supposed to be Israeli illegal settlers who run for safety to Europe.

  4. θ says:

    One can’t be caliph de facto without having Jerusalem under his control.

    All notable world conquerors always come to Jerusalem as the first priority of prize, as well as the token of power, from the days of Pharaoh, Nebuchadnessar, Cyrus, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Augustus, and the Mongols.

    The Islamophobes keep labeling ISIS as “Islamic” group, but since when has any Islamic group less preferred Israel for its first conquest even after many years of waiting and empty claiming?

    Since when has any Islamic group become “Islamic” without firstly exerting all serious efforts and resources to take back Jerusalem from Israel?

  5. Rubart Subinsar says:

    But, but, but, but caliph without Jerusalem is like the Pope without the mass.

    The concept of taxes in the Bible:

    – Minority’s golds and silvers were stolen for worshiping a God?
    2Sam 8:11
    Which also king David did dedicate unto the LORD, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all nations which he subdued;

    – No head lifted for the conquered minorities, they lived in humiliation:
    Jud 8:28
    Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the country was in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon.

  7. madmanna says:

    The nations that dwelt within the boundaries of Israel had to pay tribute.

  8. السلفية says:

    “madmanna says: The nations that dwelt within the boundaries of Israel had to pay tribute.”

    Why? Is it because they were not Jewish or something?
    Why? Is it because their Gentile race so filthy or something?
    Is having their Gentile’s head not lifted on the streets not enough?
    Is living in a social humiliation under the dominant Israelites not enough?

  9. Muslims imposed the tax on the Jews after they losing their sources of income in Mecca, they didn’t impose the tax when the old good times of trade was good and well in Mecca.
    The Jews are contributor for Mecca’s economy after the trade was ended.
    Jizya: Protection and Humiliation (Daniel and Adnan)

    The Islamic Dawah team challenged Daniel for a debate on Jizya. Daniel unpacks s9:28-30 and s2:256 with the tafsir of Ibn Kathir. Jizya is payment for humiliation.

    O you who have believed, indeed the polytheists are unclean, so let them not approach al-Masjid al-Haram after this, their [final] year. And if you fear privation, Allah will enrich you from His bounty if He wills. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Wise. (Sura 9:28)

    Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled. (Sura 9:29)

    The Jews say, “Ezra is the son of Allah “; and the Christians say, “The Messiah is the son of Allah .” That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded? (Sura 9:30)

    Ibn Kathir, The Battles of the Prophet, pp. 183-4 Allah, Most High, ordered the believers to prohibit the disbelievers from entering or coming near the sacred Mosque. On that, Quraish thought that this would reduce their profits from trade. Therefore, Allah, Most High, compensated them and ordered them to fight the people of the Book until they embrace Islam or pay the Jizyah. Allah says, “O ye who believe! Truly the pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty, soon will Allah enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Therefore, the Messenger of Allah decided to fight the Romans in order to call them to Islam.

    The Biblical God worked with slavery and forced labors, the Jewish Priests have a “side income” as the amateurish Slave Dealers.

    KJV conceals the Historical truth by reducing the historical hardship and oppressive forced labors by the Jews on the Canaanites to be a tributary (poll-tax) based on racialism. The Hebrew word (string#4522) Mac, Mic /Mas/ gets a poor mistranslation in KJV.
    Newer translations, like the NIV, ESV, NASB, HCSB, ISV, and GWT have responded to a truer fact of History, a more fresher view of the past, a better understanding of the ancient languages, and the necessity of communicating using contemporary English by translating the Hebrew phrase as “forced labor”, which is a more clearer rendering for Modern understanding.

    Forced labor in the bible (imposed by the Jews on minorities):
    Proverbs 12:24
    The hand of the diligent will rule, But the slack hand will be put to forced labor.
    Joshua 16:10
    But they did not drive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer, so the Canaanites live in the midst of Ephraim to this day, and they became forced laborers.
    Joshua 17:13
    It came about when the sons of Israel became strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor, but they did not drive them out completely.
    Judges 1:28
    It came about when Israel became strong, that they put the Canaanites to forced labor, but they did not drive them out completely.
    Judges 1:30
    Zebulun did not drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, or the inhabitants of Nahalol; so the Canaanites lived among them and became subject to forced labor.
    Judges 1:33
    Naphtali did not drive out the inhabitants of Beth-shemesh, or the inhabitants of Beth-anath, but lived among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land; and the inhabitants of Beth-shemesh and Beth-anath became forced labor for them.
    Judges 1:35
    yet the Amorites persisted in living in Mount Heres, in Aijalon and in Shaalbim; but when the power of the house of Joseph grew strong, they became forced labor.
    2 Samuel 12:31
    He also brought out the people who were in it, and set them under saws, sharp iron instruments, and iron axes, and made them pass through the brickkiln. And thus he did to all the cities of the sons of Ammon.
    1 Kings 5:13
    Now King Solomon levied forced laborers from all Israel; and the forced laborers numbered 30,000 men.
    1 Kings 9:15
    Now this is the account of the forced labor which King Solomon levied to build the house of the LORD, his own house, the Millo, the wall of Jerusalem, Hazor, Megiddo, and Gezer.
    1 Kings 9:21
    their descendants who were left after them in the land whom the sons of Israel were unable to destroy utterly, from them Solomon levied forced laborers, even to this day.
    2 Samuel 20:24
    and Adoram was over the forced labor, and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was the recorder;
    1 Kings 4:6
    and Ahishar was over the household; and Adoniram the son of Abda was over the men subject to forced labor.
    1 Kings 5:14
    He sent them to Lebanon, 10,000 a month in relays; they were in Lebanon a month and two months at home. And Adoniram was over the forced laborers.
    1 Kings 12:18
    Then King Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the forced labor, and all Israel stoned him to death.
    1 Kings 11:28
    Now the man Jeroboam was a valiant warrior, and when Solomon saw that the young man was industrious, he appointed him over all the forced labor of the house of Joseph.
    Isaiah 31:8
    And the Assyrian will fall by a sword not of man, And a sword not of man will devour him So he will not escape the sword, And his young men will become forced laborers.
    Donations of Slaves to the Temple as War Booty
    Numbers 31 describes an attack on Midian by the Israelites under Moses. A portion of the spoils, consisting of both physical wealth and captives, is given to the “temple”, here represented by the Levites and the tabernacle:

    From the Israelites’ half Moses took one of every fifty, both of persons and of animals, and gave them to the Levites who had charge of the tabernacle of Yahweh; as Yahweh had commanded Moses. (Numbers 31:47)

    The exact purpose of these slaves is not specified. However, the fact that only female virgins were left alive to be apportioned out as war booty implies that their duties would have been sexual in nature.

    The Enslavement of the Hivites
    Joshua 9 tells how the Hivites of Gibeon hear of “what Joshua had done” to Jericho and Ai, mercilessly slaughtering their inhabitants in accordance with the command of Deuteronomy 20:10–18, which says that all towns in the promised land (including the Hivites) shall be subjected to herem, ritualistic slaughter. According to the same passage, towns outside that geographical area may submit and be subjected to slavery instead of death. Of course, the Gibeonites haven’t read the command in Deuteronomy, but it suffices that the reader has.

    The clever Hivites here decide to save themselves by meeting Joshua disguised as travellers from a distant region, and by doing so, they are able to secure a peace treaty with Israel. When Joshua finds out they actually live nearby, he is prevented from killing them by the treaty and oath sworn by the Israelites; so instead, he forces them to become slaves of “the house of God”:

    Joshua summoned them, and said to them, “Why did you deceive us, saying, ‘We are very far from you,’ while in fact you are living among us? Now therefore you are cursed, and some of you shall always be slaves, hewers of wood and drawers of water for the house of my God.” … This is what he did for them: he saved them from the Israelites; and they did not kill them. But on that day Joshua made them hewers of wood and drawers of water for the congregation and for the altar of Yahweh, to continue to this day, in the place that he should choose. (Joshua 9:22–27)

    This story is often taken to be an etiological tale that explains why a certain group of people was subservient to the Israelites. (It cannot be a historically accurate account for several reasons, including the ahistorical nature of the Canaanite conquest itself and the fact that Gibeon was not inhabited during the late Bronze Age.)⁴ In particular, this group seems to have been enslaved to serve whatever temple or sanctuary existed in the writer’s own day, since the language “you shall always be slaves” and “continue to this day” suggests that the writer has the current situation in mind.

    In fact, we can say with confidence that it was probably the Jerusalem temple where these slaves served. As John Day states in a recent article:

    Deuteronomistic terminology is clearly detectable in the phrase ‘the place which he should choose’, and since for the Deuteronomists at the time of writing this would have been the Jerusalem Temple, it follows that the Gibeonites were understood to have been incorporated within that sanctuary to perform menial cultic tasks.⁵

    It was widely understood even in Talmudic times that the Gibeonites were to be identified as the Netinim, a hereditary class of servants/slaves as we shall see below. According to the Talmud (Yebamot 78b–79a), Joshua “appointed them for the times when the Temple would stand”. This identification is generally accepted by scholars.

    King Solomon’s Slaves
    Slavery features prominently in the acts of King Solomon as depicted in the Bible — particularly in the building of the temple itself. 1 Kings 5 describes a massive campaign involving forced labour during its construction:

    Solomon and the plan for the First Temple, illustration from a Bible card published by the Providence Lithograph Co.
    “Solomon and the plan for the First Temple”, illustration from a Bible card published by the Providence Lithograph Co.; source: Wikipedia

    King Solomon conscripted forced labor out of all Israel; the levy numbered thirty thousand men. He sent them to the Lebanon, ten thousand a month in shifts; they would be a month in the Lebanon and two months at home; Adoniram was in charge of the forced labor. (1 Kings 5:13–174)

    What we are dealing here is not chattel slavery, but corvée slavery — the “right” of the king to force his subjects into mandatory labour as a sort of taxation for public works and other projects.

    Later on, we are also told that Solomon forced slavery on all remaining non-Israelites in the country:

    All the people who were left of the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, who were not of the people of Israel — their descendants who were still left in the land, whom the Israelites were unable to destroy completely —these Solomon conscripted for slave labor, and so they are to this day. (1 Kings 9:20–21)

    Again, we get the sense that the Deuteronomist writer (one of whose trademarks is that laundry list of foreign nationalities) is explaining the origin of certain subjugated classes in his own day. The next verse reads, “But of the Israelites Solomon made no slaves.” This reinforces the interpretation that these foreigner-derived slaves were absolute slaves (mas ‘obed in Hebrew), and not temporary corvée slaves (mas in Hebrew) like the Israelites of 1 Kings 5.⁶ It would appear that these slaves were put to work specifically in Solomon’s temple, as we shall see below.

    The Netinim and the Second Temple
    There is a class of temple functionaries called the Netinim (or Nethinim) mentioned once in Chronicles and several times in Ezra-Nehemiah. As mentioned earlier, this group is widely thought to have been comprised of temple slaves whose origins were explained by the story in Joshua 9. Long lists of their family names appear in three related scriptural texts: Ezra 2, Nehemiah 7, and 1 Esdras 5. What is notable about these names is that they are nearly all non-Hebrew names.⁷ Their placement in the list of returnee groups (e.g. after the priests, Levites, gatekeepers, and singers in Nehemiah 10:28) also suggests they were more lowly in status. The fact that a class of non-Israelites served in the Temple is further confirmed by this passage in Ezekiel, which sees their presence as an affront to God:

    Say to the rebellious house, to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord God: O house of Israel, let there be an end to all your abominations in admitting foreigners, uncircumcised in heart and flesh, to be in my sanctuary, profaning my temple when you offer to me my food, the fat and the blood. You have broken my covenant with all your abominations. And you have not kept charge of my sacred offerings; but you have appointed foreigners to act for you in keeping my charge in my sanctuary. (Ezekiel 44:6–8)

    Other striking parallels between the Netinim and the Babylonian Sirqu caste have been noted, including the fact that both were housed in their own sections of the city. The term that Josephus used for the Netinim, hierodouloi or “sacred slaves”, has also been marshalled as evidence that the Netinim were temple slaves during the Second Temple era.⁸ Esdras B 8:20 (the Greek translation of Ezra-Nehemiah) explicitly states that the Netinim were those “whom David and his rulers had given into slavery to the Levites.”

    Some scholars (notably Baruch Levine) disagree that the Netinim were slaves rather than merely temple servants and functionaries.⁹ However, the general consensus seems to be that the Netinim originated as a caste of non-Hebrew hereditary temple slaves before the exile who remained in that vocation afterward, whether as freeborn citizens or not. (The possibility that they gained their freedom from the Babylonian conquest is not without irony.)

    It is difficult to say how late the Netinim persisted as members of the temple community. There are some mentions among the Dead Sea Scrolls, suggesting (at least to me) that it was not merely a short-lived group of the Persian period.

    The Sons of Solomon’s Servants
    Ezra, Nehemiah, and 1 Esdras mention another group immediately after the Netinim: the “Sons of Solomon’s Servants”. This group is even more obscure than the Netinim, but it seems to consist of servants or slaves descended from “Solomon’s Servants”, who are to be equated with the foreigners enslaved in 1 Kings 9. What’s more, like the Netinim, their names seem to be mainly non-Israelite in origin. It may be that this group consisted of palace slaves during pre-exilic times but became low-level servants of the temple later on (when there was no longer a Judahite state).10

    Other Complications
    The texts employed as evidence here — Joshua, 1 Kings, Ezra-Nehemiah, and 1 Esdras — have complicated histories of authorship and redaction, as well as unclear literary relationships to each other (particular in the case of Ezra, Nehemiah, and 1 Esdras) and uncertain dates of origin. However, it seems difficult to deny the picture that emerges when all relevant biblical passages and general historical knowledge are taken into account:

    The Jerusalem temple very likely functioned as a slave-holding institution before the exile.
    The slave caste consisted mainly of non-Hebrew families, as one would expect from the manner in which slaves were acquired in the ANE.
    Two of the major groups involved with post-exilic temple were understood, at least in Talmudic times if not earlier, to be descendants of the pre-exilic slave castes.
    These groups retained their identity as non-Hebrews and were disdained in some quarters, particularly by the Zadokites and some members of the Qumran community.

  11. السلفية says:

    Outrageous, even the author of article above (Paul Davidson) says so bluntly that the Jerusalem Temple acts like a “Slave Market”: The Jerusalem temple very likely functioned as a slave-holding institution before the exile.
    Well, that is astonishing.

  12. Anonymous says:

    However, KJV still maintains a true horrible depiction of the forced labor (torture including) for the poor minorities in 2Sam 12:31.
    2Sam 12:31
    And he brought forth the people that were therein, and put them under saws, and under harrows of iron, and under axes of iron, and made them pass through the brickkiln: and thus did he unto all the cities of the children of Ammon. So David and all the people returned unto Jerusalem.

  13. Anonymous says:

    Jerusalem Temple became a center of Israelite’s Slave Market because the structure itself was built by the slaves under a force labor with their bloods, tears, crying and sweats.

  14. Anonymous says:

    From the minority slave’s perspective, the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple is a very good thing to hail. It had became a den of the Slave Dealers.
    Yet, the later Jews and Pro-Zionist Christians smooch the Wailing wall made by the slaves under the forced labors.
