    History lesson

    do you know in the history USA only paid tax to Ottoman Empire...
    And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.

    Those payments were not taxes, they were extortion payoffs to ensure the safety of the American Navy at the time. The United States was still a new nation, and as such had to keep diplomatic issues to a minimum. As soon as Khilafah was abolished, the entire issue disappeared. The payments were also not to the Ottoman Empire. They were to the Barbary States, more specifically to the pirates of the area, as proven by the lack of the Sultan's signature.

    Part of this is true, It actually was the Algerian Navy!

    Put it into water, and it'll become un-fishy.

    Not much of a history lesson if it has no significance.
