Today is the first time I heard of the term "dhimmitude". I believe it is crucial to learning what it means and how it applies to us today. I had commented on a post, as I've included below, but wanted to reach more people in hopes they will wrap their brains around this and render opinions. Please read through my post and then go to links I've posted for clarification. This is an issue, (dhimmitude) I believe, as Brigitte Gabriel has dedicated her life to exposing, requires immediate attention.
My comment was to GySgt Bob Pinkstaff USMC Ret post regarding the Obama Deception video, linked here and I also included the text below.
I thought it may get more viewing if I re-posted on the main page.
"Dear Gunny, I have seen this video a month or so ago and agreed with you 100% - until the last 24 hours. There is more to this puzzle. I think the POTUS has a more evil agenda than even communism - if that is possible. Please review the following links and watch the videos & history contained therein. From all of my research and reading Canadian, British and German (English version) news and Australian, in addition to reviewing books I have from the 30's, 40's, 50's & 60's, plus all the forums, posts, etc.. we have far more to fear from Islam and Sharia law. I believe all what is occurring today with the march towards socialism, Marxism, fascism and communism is but a stepping stone for far worse. I was pondering whether the economic crisis, Gitmo, Pelosi, DHS brouhaha, etc.. ad nauseum is only smoke and mirrors for the true agenda - the US under Isam and Sharia law. It now looks that way to me and perhaps we need to ammend the Tea-Parties to include saying no to dhimmitude. The DHS does not have anti-dhimmitude in its extremist lexicon yet. Won't the left be surprised. Being anti-dhimmitude embraces all of our beliefs under God and the Constitution and expressing ourselves as conservatives or right wingers becomes a moot point. As true Americans and Patriots, none of the other designations matter. This is our true fight and must be conveyed to all. We haven't any other choice if we want to live. Can you imagine what will happen if we lose the 2nd amendment? Read up on Islam and look at my page and video posts on reformed terrorists. I am a perennial 3 year old and have to ask why on everything and there remained pieces that were not making sense to me, so I read until sometime 3 or 4 in the morning my brain is ready to explode! Here's a thought for you to ponder; consider the administration is cowardly, and they want to protect themselves by paying tributes to Islamist countries while retaining wealth for themselves - which they have been doing; pushing bills to strip the rights of the populace, surrendering US sovereignty to the UN (the UN majority is Musim) including the rights of the child, suppose all of it is engineered as dhimmitude to Islam.
Dhimmitued defined: The Status of Non-Muslim Minorities Under Islamic Rule
Dhimmitude: the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars, encompassing all of the demographic, ethnic, and religious aspects of the political system. The word "dhimmitude" as a historical concept, was coined by Bat Ye'or in 1983 to describe the legal and social conditions of Jews and Christians subjected to Islamic rule. The word "dhimmitude" comes from dhimmi, an Arabic word meaning "protected". Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination. Islamic conquests expanded over vast territories in Africa, Europe and Asia, for over a millennium (638-1683). The Muslim empire incorporated numerous varied peoples which had their own religion, culture, language and civilization. For centuries, these indigenous, pre-Islamic peoples constituted the great majority of the population of the Islamic lands. Although these populations differed, they were ruled by the same type of laws, based on the shari'a.
This similarity, which includes also regional variations, has created a uniform civilization developed throughout the centuries by all non-Muslim indigenous people, who were vanquished by a jihad-war and governed by shari'a law. It is this civilization which is called dhimmitude. It is characterized by the different strategies developed by each dhimmi group to survive as non-Muslim entity in their Islamized countries. Dhimmitude is not exclusively concerned with Muslim history and civilization. Rather it investigates the history of those non-Muslim peoples conquered and colonized by jihad.
Dhimmitude encompasses the relationship of Muslims and non-Muslims at the theological, social, political and economical levels. It also incorporates the relationship between the numerous ethno-religious dhimmi groups and the type of mentality that they have developed out of their particular historical condition which lasted for centuries, even in some Muslim countries, till today.
Dhimmitude is an entire integrated system, based on Islamic theology. It cannot be judged from the circumstantial position of any one community, at a given time and in a given place. Dhimmitude must be appraised according to its laws and customs, irrespectively of circumstances and political contingencies. The link to this is http://www.dhimmitude.org/
I discovered this by following links that initiated at http://www.americancongressfortruth.org/
Please view the videos of Brigitte Gabriel. I learned about dhimmitude a few hours ago from this link http://www.actforamerica.org/index.php/home/10-newsmaster/1192-dhim...
I also urge you to read this:
Now we know why Obumbo bowed to the Saudi king. Dhimmitude by a POTUS will seal our fate like no other. It is no wonder Russia said we will have it far worse than they did with communism - they already know what we are in for.
From one former Marine to another - Semper Fi "
I may not have included that dhimmitude or dhimmi means to subjugate. in Wikipedia, "he associations of the word "dhimmitude" vary between users:
* Bat Ye'or defined dhimmitude as the condition and experience of those who are subject to dhimma, and thus not synonymous to, but rather a subset of the dhimma phenomenon: "dhimmitude [...] represents a behavior dictated by fear (terrorism), pacifism when aggressed, rather than resistance, servility because of cowardice and vulnerability. [...] 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."
* It may be simply a replacement for the relatively little known (compared to dhimmi) noun dhimma, coined to carry the same meaning. This has already widely happened in French usage where, as in English, "-tude" is a productive suffix.
* A more recent pejorative usage variant of "dhimmi" and "dhimmitude" divorces the words from the historical context of jihad and applies them to situations where non-Muslims in the West and India are championing Islamic causes above others. "Dhimmi" is treated as analogous to "Quisling" within this context.
