Dhimmitude Status Step By Step
What does it take for a nation to accept the status of Dhimmitude for itself?
Bat Ye'or sheds light upon this for us.
1. The nation must place peace before and before security
2. The nation must accept myths about Islamic peace.
3. The nation must praise tolerance above safety
4. The nation must be willing to dilute its own identity.
Historically, Dhimmis were broken up to 2 types:
1. The majority who accepted this status begrudgingly and fearfully
2. The tiny minority who benefited directly from the Muslims. These were (and are) those who gained wealth and status by making corporate or political deals with the Muslims. Inevitably, they did so publicly by denouncing Israel, the pathological center of Islam: hatred of Jews.
They gained wealth and power through Arab oil and businesses, but eventually were like lambs led to the slaughter, silent due to the shock that they, themselves, were still "kaffir" and worthy of death.
Bat Ye'or said that the greatest shock of the wealthy?
That their children were murdered along with the rest.
It reminds me of the Jews under Hitler who organized the trainloads of Jews to the death camps, when one they were no longer needed, they, too, were boarded for death.
The wealth and acceptance among the Islamic supremacists led to cooperation in publications, oil sales, manufacturing, gun running, and so on. They needed to always show a negative view of Israel to satisfy Islamic lust for the blood of every Jew and the annihilation of the tiny nation.
This came, in history, through publications of anti semitism or anti-Israel (Zionism) political stances, just as today we have country after country condemning the tiny nation of Israel for not allowing Muslims to formally steal a portion of their own land, giving their sworn enemy access to their own destruction.
College kids have really big feelings and these feelings are often offended and when they are, the college kids demand repercussions upon those not responsible for their hurt feelings. One college kid curses another, and the college president is told to resign or there will be a boycott. Said president resigns.
College kids are really upset about "The Palestinian" situation.
The Palestinians are, daily stabbing Jews with knives and the press reports the Palestinians as victims in these stabbings. Although an abundance of land exists for which Palestinians could have their own nation, these Islamic lands will not suffice; neither by offer nor by acceptance: only land in the heart of Israel is accepted.
The college kids demand Israel give it to them and express a range of venom towards Israel, though they know not why.
They are really upset.
Leaders in Europe join in this chorus and blame the Islamic terror attack in Paris on the Jews (or on global warming).
France said it will fight back.
Yet, at the same time, it will continue to import Islamic supremacists.
Its former president said it has lost its identity. France is no longer France.
According to Bat Ye'or, France cannot yet fight against Islam unless she first is unified in an identity.
This is best exampled by the popular photo of the French father holding up his young son, explaining,
'Son, they fight with guns, but we fight with flowers.'
As the Islamist reloads, the French male runs back to get another rose.
That'll learn 'em.
