This is "Dhimmi"

A few days ago we had some discussion about the meaning of "dhimmi." Well, this about epitomizes it. Apparently the British police have agreed to consult with a panel of Muslim authorities before authorizing further raids on suspected terror cells.

I would say it’s a clear case of QED.

Everytime you concede to a demand of a Muslim, everytime you give in to their intimidation, you take one more step toward dhimmitude....Oh, and everytime you vote for a dhimmicrat.

Uncle Guido, every time you use the term dhimmicrat you are reinforcing the image of the Bush administration as an oppressive theocracy. There are plenty of them in the world already - why do you want to make America one of ’em?

Daniel, I believe you have missed the point entirely. No one is suggesting thatc the Bush Administration is repressing anyone. Can you give me an example?

Here is a previous post directed at Craig scanlon..........

For Craig Scanlon:
Please check this site for a better explanation of Dhimmi’s and Dhimmitude

http://www.dhimmitude.org/d_history_dhimmitude.php

A sample......

Rules of dhimmitude "The vanquished non-Muslims peoples are granted security for their life and possessions, as well as a relative self-autonomous administration and limited religious rights according to the modalities of the conquest. These rights are subject to two conditions: the payment of a poll tax (the jizya) and submission to the provisions of Islamic law." "The concept of toleration is linked to a number of discriminatory obligations in the economic, religious and social fields, imposed by the shari’a on the dhimmis. The transgression by the dhimmis of some of these obligations, abolished their protection, and threaten them with death or slavery. Dhimmis suffered many legal disabilities intended to reduce them to a condition of humiliation, segregation and discrimination. These rules, established from the eight to nine centuries by the founders of the four schools of Islamic law, set the pattern of the Muslim’s community’s social behavior toward dhimmis." "Jews and Christians are referred to as the People of the Book, they share the same legal status, while other religious group - like the Zoroastrians for instance - were more despised and treated harsher." "Dhimmitude covers more than a millennium of Christian and Jewish history, as well as of other groups. It is a comprehensive civilization encompassing customs, legislation, social behavior. Numerous laws were enacted over the centuries by the Muslim authorities, to implement its principles. It was abolished during the 19th -20th centuries under European pressure and colonization of Arab countries." "Today the resurgence of traditional Islam revitalizes the spirit of jihad against the dar al-harb and of dhimmitude for the non-Muslim minorities."

Definitely not a pleasant way of life or existence. Now imagine the fate of the atheist or gay individual in such a society.

It is a large website; but worth the visit. I’ve bookmarked it.

Or consider this one directed also to Mr. Scanlon...........

For Craig Scanlon. More info regarding Dhimmitude "In the early years of the Islamic conquests, the "tribute" or jizya was paid as a yearly poll tax, which symbolized the subordination of the dhimmi. Later, the inferior status of Jews and Christians was reinforced through a series of regulations that governed the behavior of the dhimmi. Jews and Christians were awarded a different status than other faiths. They were considered to be under protection as “people of the book.” People of non-monotheistic faiths, pagans, or atheists were simply to be exterminated." Item from...http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=24592

Also note this. Sounds familiar? “Dhimmis were also forced to wear distinctive clothing. In the ninth century, for example, Baghdad’s Caliph al-Mutawakkil designated a yellow badge for Jews, setting a precedent that would be followed centuries later.”

I myself can only this quoteing... "The Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation. If I were an atheist, and believed blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations." -John Adams

Please no more talk of Nasrallah or Amedinnijad or however this Neo-Nazi spells his name. Enough is enough.

Oh, by the way, the nun that was shot in the back by Islamist cowards had more moral certitude and conviction than a thousand Rachel Corries.

Daniel K.:

Some of my jokes are better than others and some of them are a bit esoteric. I can see why a Democrat might not find this particular pun to be funny.

The Po...er...Uncle Guido thus sincerely regrets that certain passages of his address could have sounded offensive to the sensitivities of the Mus...er...Dhim...er...Democrat faithful.
