Claims about “Dhimmitude” in Obamacare and Muslim Exemptions – Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
The word “dhimmitude” is included in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and refers to the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations.
The word dhimmitude is not included in the Obamacare healthcare law.
A chain email claims that the word dhimmitude appears on page 107 of the healthcare law, and it defines the word’s meaning as:
“Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad (Holy War). 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.”
And the word dhimmitude does not appear in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam. However, a number of definitions for the word “dhimmi” can be found:
“Dhimmi (Subject Entry)
Non-Muslim under protection of Muslim law. A covenant of protection was made with conquered “Peoples of the Book,” which included Jews, Christians, Sabaeans.
Dhimmī (Subject Entry)
In Islamic law, a non-Muslim who is under a covenant of protection (dhimmah) with the Muslim authority is considered dhimmī.
Dhimmī (Subject Entry)
In Islamic law one who is in the covenant of protection (dhimmah) with the Muslim power is considered dhimmī.”
In the book “Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide” dhimmitude is described as a social system in which non-Muslims (or dhimmis) live under Muslim law. The term appears to have been coined in the last 30 years or so by scholars and social commentators, but it doesn’t’ specifically refer to jihad or taxing non-Muslims, as the eRumor claims.
And it’s true that individuals can be exempted from penalties under Obamacare for religious reasons, but no specific exemptions are listed for Muslims. And the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to exempt Hobby Lobby from the healthcare law’s contraceptive requirement based on the Christian beliefs of its owner demonstrates that religious exemptions do not apply solely to one religious group.
The word “Dhimmitude” is found in the new health care bill; so what does it mean?
Thought this was interesting and worth passing on.
Obama used it in the health care bill.
Now isn’t this interesting?
It is also included in the health care law.
Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. I typed it into Google and started 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 (Holy War). 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
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 receivable, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax.
Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan (the Muslim) will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health insurance 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.
