Dhimmitude Studies, Please!

Reader comment on item: Jihad and the Professors

Submitted by Eva (United States), Nov 5, 2002 at 12:05

One thing this article brings up is the need to inform the American public just what would happen should Muslims win the battle for ideas in this war on terror/war on the West.

We have Holocaust studies in various places; now, we need to fully understand the word, "dhimmi," and the concept of "dhimmitude." For if, G-d forbid, they win the battle for ideas, then it will not be long until we all are under their rule; as I understand it, dhimmitude is the only choice a person has if s/he wants to remain a Christian or a Jew. The other choices are conversion and death.

As it is now, we are giving in to Islamist ideas by letting them define everything and by appeasing them when they take offense at the truth. We need help to see clearly the end of that road so that we don't go down it any further.

Thank you once again, Dr. Pipes.
