    Dhimmi Watch
    Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, "protected people," are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur'an's command that they "feel themselves subdued" (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, are part of the law that global jihadists are laboring to impose everywhere, ultimately on the entire human race.

    The dhimmi attitude of chastened subservience has entered into Western academic study of Islam, and from there into journalism, textbooks, and the popular discourse. One must not point out the depredations of jihad and dhimmitude; to do so would offend the multiculturalist ethos that prevails everywhere today.

    But in this era of global terrorism this silence and distortion has become deadly. Therefore Dhimmi Watch seeks to bring public attention to the plight of the dhimmis, and by doing so, to bring them justice.


    1. The Iraqi organization Christians in Need said this week that Christians in that country continue to suffer persecution. Christians in Iraq are experiencing a rise in persecution from Islamic extremists. The Christians in Iraq, many of whom are Catholics are facing persecution from Islamic extremists. The minority of Christian leaders protested the pre-emptive war. More than 2,000 families have take refuge in one parish with only the clothes on their backs. Christians live in terror and are subject to intimidation's.
