[Paw Paw’s Inbox] Dhimmitude

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the psychology of chain emails – or, perhaps more accurately, the senders and receivers of those messages. Now, it’s time to take a look at one of those emails. The most frustrating thing about this one is that the deception could be uncovered by doing the exact Google search suggested in the email! 

It provides a perfect example of the simple citing of a source being enough to convince the (albeit receptive) reader that the statement is legitimate. It’s why I always tell my students to follow the path – check the sources cited in research materials. Don’t just take them at their word.

DhimmitudeWhat does it mean?

Obama used it in the health care bill.

Now isn’t this interesting? It is used in the health care law.

Dhimmitude— I had never heard the word until now. Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. It’s on page 107 of the healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists.. It is a REAL word.

Word of the Day: Dhimmitude

Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslimpopulations 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 are 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 are specifically granted exemption based on this.

How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. This is Dhimmitude.

I recommend sending this on to your contacts. American citizens need to know about it —

This one was easy:

http://www.factcheck.org/2010/05/dhimmitude-and-the-muslim-exemption/

To quote, “The Muslim faith does not forbid purchasing health insurance, and no Muslim group has ever been considered exempt under the definitions used in the health care law.”

So who is exempt? Here’s the ironic part:

“Since we posted our article, we’ve obtained a list through the Freedom of Information Act of all the groups that have successfully applied for exemptions from payroll taxes. […] The overwhelming majority of them are explicitly Anabaptist — that is, Mennonite, Amish or Hutterite. Those that don’t specify their denomination are still explicitly Christian. Having gone through the list, we can say with certainty that no Muslim group, and indeed no non-Christian group, has ever qualified for an exemption under the statute used to define exempt religious groups in the health care law” [emphasis added].

The word “dhimmitude” isn’t found on page 107, or anywhere else in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In fact, if one were to follow the email’s advice and Google the term, (s)he would find the fact checks debunking this false email as the 3rd, 4th, and 5th result – right under links to the definition of the word.

And the whole “prison time” bit at the end… also false. Per the article, “The House version of the bill left open the possibility of criminal penalties for deliberately evading a tax for not having health insurance, but the Senate version did not, nor did the final law.”

False on all grounds.
