"Not Just Feldstein"

Osama bin Laden promises broad, across-the-board tax cuts once we embrace the Caliphate:

“To conclude,” bin Laden says, “I invite you to embrace Islam.” He goes on to say: “There are no taxes in Islam, but rather there is a limited Zakaat [alms] totaling 2.5 percent.”

In paradise, not only do you get 76 virgins, but there’s no deadweight loss.
