What if they were Jews

Reader comment on item: Christianity Dying in Its Birthplace

However atrocious the outcome of the Christians in the Taybe incident, they were saved from wholesale massacre by adhering to the status of Dhimmis.
Jews are in a far worse status, since they have transgressed the laws of Dhimmitude via the awful sin of sovereignty, coupled most horribly with the most villainous crime of self-defense. These unspeakble transgressions mean that Jews in the same helpless situation as the Christian Dhimmis would be massacred and "hanged from the lamp-posts" (a quote from a notable Arab of Umm-Al Fahm on the morning talk show on Israel Army Radio!) given the opportunity. In fact this is exactly the outcome of the Gush Etzion communities and the Hebron community, and the 1500 dead since the inception of the latest Intifadeh.

So the Palestinian Christians should feel fortunate. They are still the good Dhimmis, liable to be torched and kicked and mauled and harrassed and disgraced, but not decapitated or blown to bits. This justice is reserved for Jews and Americans, and anyone who dares object to the universal application of Dhimmitude.
