12/1/13 – “Dhimmitude” is the word used to describe the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad (Holy War). It is a word coined by Bat Ye’or to describe the status of Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians who inhabit Islāmic lands and who are conquered but not killed or converted by Islāmic jihad.
Dhimma – is the word used to describe a treaty of protection that may be granted to “People of the Book”, i.e., Jews and Christians following their defeat by Muslim forces.
Dhimmi – is a word that literally means protected; it is used to describe non-Muslim, non-Pagan people, usually Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians, who inhabit Islāmic lands and are subjected to discriminatory laws and the jizya or poll tax.
Specifically, Dhimmitude is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam. If a conquered minority does not want to pay the tax, it can renounce its own religion and join Islam. Or it can watch its members be slaughtered, their heads cut off, etc.
ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States . Not only that, but Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking”, and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemptions based on this.
How convenient. So I, as a Christian, might have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivable, and I could face hard prison time because I refuse to buy health insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, a Muslim like Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty, but will have 100% of his health insurance needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. This is Dhimmitude.
I recommend sending this on to your contacts. American citizens need to know about it — especially those Americans who are “soft” on Islam, Muslims, and who think that in the interest of “fairness” we need to let them do whatever they want to do after they emigrate to this country.
