by Nicholas Contompasis "Dhimmitude is a neologism first found in French denoting an attitude of concession, surrender and appeasement towards Islamic demands." - From Wikapedia Dhimmitude-- What does it mean? Obama used it in describing the health care bill two years ago. Dhimmitude -- Have you heard of this word? Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. On page 107 of the healthcare bill it describes that religions could receive exemptions, and obviously the Muslim religion would qualify, if they requested it and a sympathetic Administration would grant it. Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the taxing of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence and as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam. ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims could be 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 could be specifically granted an exemption based on this. How convenient. So as Christians have found over the past two weeks that the Catholic Church will not get this exemption and will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of their assets, including real estate, plus will face hard prison time if they refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan could have no such penalty and have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance when their exemption is granted. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. This is Dhimmitude. American citizens of all faiths need to know about it. * This topic has been written about for the past two years. The original article by an unknown author peppered it with many untruths. I have vetted this article and have rewritten it with the truth as it is today. One must understand that a religious exemption will depend upon the person in place as President. If that President is sympathetic to Muslims, you can bet he or she will grant it. Unfortunately, this will cause a fight for your freedom of religion every time you elect a President. This is no way to run an airline.
