I received the following email this week:
Thought this was interesting and worth passing on.
Dhimmitude — What 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.
Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations 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.

Apr 13, 2010 … Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations … The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia …
I did some of my own research before posting this here. Here’s what I found:
I started with this story that claims there is nothing to the claims in this email. I then found that this notion of the Dhimmi being an “invented” term may be true, but the idea of a tax on Christians is in the Qur’an. I found it in 9:29. True, the word is not in the Qur’an, but the principle that the word was described certainly is. This Jizya is nothing more than a tax to be paid to keep from being killed. In this sense, you would be better off thinking of it as nothing more than extortion, much the same as that we have been dealing with since this nation was born and we had to pay to get our merchants and sailors back from the Barbary Pirates (i.e. Muslims).
Then I found that FactCheck.org seems to think there IS something to the claims in this email after all.
I’ll leave you to decide what you believe, but given THIS Administration and its current attacks on Catholics and Christianity in general, do you REALLY believe it is beyond the realm of possibility? If so, could you please tell me how or even WHY the word “Dhimmitude” even found its way into the Health Care bill?
