Very well then. I will answer your questions if you will answer mine. You call your self Dhimmi No More. What does that mean exactly? Can I safely assume that you are no longer an Irish Catholic living in the north of Ireland? Or, that you are no longer an African American living in the segregatonist south of the U.S. Or that you no longer belong to the caste of Untouchable Hindus? Ahha, I think I have it, You are no longer a Black African living under Apartthied . Is one of any of those correct?

Please don't misunderstand me. I'm just trying to understand exactly where it is that you are coming from. Of course, in the process I hope to make the point that Dhimmitude is not unique to Muslims and neither did it originate with them. Such attitudes have always existed between the conquered and the conqueror in any age. The Romans certainly practiced Dhimmitude amongst the Celts of Gaul and Britain as did the Greeks toward any folk who were not Greek. The Spanish Conquistadors practiced Dhimmitude against the natives of Mexico and South America and that attitude still persists today in the static social class attitudes of the upper classes in the Spanish speaking parts of the world.

So. Where were we?
