A very good biting commentary appeared at WorldNet Daily today. It begins with this quote:
"As for the concept of dhimmitude, it represents a behavior dictated by fear (terrorism), pacifism when aggressed, rather than resistance, servility because of cowardice and vulnerability. The origin of this concept is to be found in the condition of the infidel people who submit to the Islamic rule without fighting in order to avoid the onslaught of jihad. By their peaceful surrender to the Islamic army, they obtained the security for their life, belongings and religion, but they had to accept a condition of inferiority, spoliation and humiliation. As they were forbidden to possess weapons and give testimony against a Muslim, they were put in a position of vulnerability and humility." – Bat Ye'or in interview by John W. Whitehead
What is the poll you ask? The coming mid-term elections.
You probably didn't know it, but in less than two weeks the United States is conducting a nationwide poll on dhimmitude. You may not see the term dhimmitude printed on your ballot, but rest assured – it is there….Look for its abbreviation after the various candidate names. With only a handful of exceptions it shows up as a "D" after the candidate’s name. And while it is true that a few "moderate" (mediaspeak for liberal) Republicans support the dhimmitude agenda, the only Democrat senator I know of who supports a vigorous resistance to dhimmitude is Joe Lieberman. Oops – he's running as an Independent. His party booted him out in the primary election and embraced the dhimmitude "D" candidate.
