Bat Yeor correctly describes the dhimmi process akin to a caste system. Generaly I prefer Jim Crowe but even that may be insufficient. The dhimmification process lasted way longer then Jim Crowe and was more pervaseive.
The far left loves (not you B you are sane)ry to talk about the legacy of slavery and Jim Crowe in America. The wacky left also readily spews hateful venom at India and Hinduism. The two main sources are paranoia about the BJP an the far left compares that to the Likud or GOP. Has anyone heard 167 say anything about Cuba or China ? Commubigots fail to note that all three were democratically elected .
The interesting point is the bigots of the left deny and lie about the historic and current legacy of Islam. Thus a Commie agitator in Israel gets headlines for getting caught in the crossfire. Have they written a single word about the peaceful Bhai who want to be left alone. The Bhai do not face persecution in Israel . Have the Commubigots written a single word about the Christians fleeing for their safety ?
Tony Blair hit the nail on the head. Your religious freedom ends when my safety and criminal acts begin. interestingly 167 has defended Red Ken Livingstone meeting with a Muslim cleric who calls for killing jooooos and homosexuals. In fact he only mentioned the jooooooish critiques of that meeting but Hindus and Gays among others protested.
Make no mistake the far left loves Castes so long as it is Jooooos, Christians and Hindooooooos being spat on by Jihadists.
