A forwarded warning that the Affordable Care Act (also known colloquially as the ACA or Obamacare) establishes “dhimmitude” or a status of “non-Muslim minorities under Islamic rule and sharia law in the United States, because Islam forbids followers from purchasing insurance,” is pure nonsense. It typically reads something like this:
Word of the Day: Dhimmitude
Had never heard the word until now?
Type it into Google and start reading…
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.
Note that Muslims and certain other religions are exempt from the Obamacare penalties and it is supported by law. We are surrendering from within! The boy is leading us right down the path to total control!
The ObamaCare bill is 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, 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. Period.
This is Dhimmitude.
Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver.
“Sure, I’ll be a muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I sign, bro?”
I recommend sending this post to your contacts. This is desperately important and people need to know about it – quickly.
This is overwrought nonsense. There was a provision for a religious conscience exemption in the health care bill signed into law by former United States President Barack Obama, but there was no Muslim restriction against the purchase of health insurance. However, members of some religious organizations could claim religious conscience exemptions.
Health insurance and life insurance are two different issues. According to IslamOnline.net, there are a variety of views of religious restrictions toward life insurance and investing because it is looked upon as gambling, but there is no evidence of any restrictions around Muslim people purchasing medical, home owners and automobile policies.
