Wake Up and Smell the Dhimmitude

A group of Muslim students at Catholic University in Washington has filed a complaint with the D.C. office of human rights, claiming that the presence of crosses and pictures of Jesus violate their human rights. They want rooms in which to pray where there are no Christian symbols.

The 60-page complaint is being investigated, even though Catholic University is a private institution, not to mention Catholic.

Day after day we hear of complaints from Muslims that the rest of us must conform to their wishes. Try this in any Muslim country. Ask for a room in which to pray and that the school post crosses and crucifixes. In many of these countries, it is illegal to even bring a Bible into the country for personal use. Violate their laws and you could go to prison or suffer physical punishment.

It's called dhimmitude, the Islamic practice of getting others not of the Muslim faith to submit. It can be a slow process, but it is steady. They have a scenario for such things and it is being implemented in our country today. We'd better wake up and do something about it ... fast!
