Dhimmi, Dhimmi - Poem by gershon hepner

O what have you got for dinner Mrs. Bond?
I have dhimmis in the larder with whom I don’t correspond.
Call dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, come and be killed,
for you must be stuffed and madersas must be filled.

I’ve been to the dhimmis who are swimming in the pond,
where neither of each other seem to be the least bit fond.
Call dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, come and be killed,
for you must be stuffed and madersas must be filled.

The dhimmis who are swimming aren’t all equal, there’s the Jews
who say that I can’t kill them, though the Christians don’t refuse
Call dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, come and be killed,
for you must be stuffed and madersas must be filled.

Mrs. Bond she went down to the pond in a rage,
And told the dhimmis: “You’re all standing on the selfsame page.
She cried, “Dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi, come and be killed,
you’re infidels, prepare yourselves your blood must now be spilled.”



Inspired by a nursery rhyme

Dilly, Dilly

Oh what have you got for dinner, Mrs. Bond?
I've beef in the larder and ducks in the pond
Call, dilly, dilly, dilly, dilly, come and be killed
For you must be stuffed and my customers filled

John Ostler, go fetch me a duckling or two,
John Ostler, go fetch me a duckling or two-
Call, dilly, dilly, dilly, dilly, come and be killed,
For you must be stuffed and the customers filled

I have been to the ducks that are swimming in the pond
And they won't come and be killed, Mrs. Bond,
I cried, Dilly, dilly, dilly, dilly, come and be killed,
For you must be stuffed and the customers filled.

Mrs. Bond she went down to the pond in a rage,
With plenty of onions and plenty of sage;
She cried, Dilly, dilly, dilly, dilly, come you little wag-tails, (wag, come and be killed,
For you shall be stuffed and my customers filled.

DHIMMI: A BRIEF OVERVIEW
7th-21st century. The notion of Dhimmitude, originating in the 7th century, still applies today to non-Muslims under Islamic rule—whether Jews or Christians, whether in Saudi Arabia or in Sudan. Dhimmitude began in 628 CE when Mohammed and his forces conquered the Jewish oasis at Khaybar. They massacred many of the Jews and forced the rest to accept a pact ('Dhimma') which rendered them inferiror to their Muslim conquerors. Over the centuries, the ideology of Dhimmitude expanded into a formal system of religious apartheid.

Institutionalized apartheid. In Shari’a law, there are official discriminations against the Dhimmi, such as the poll-tax or jizya.

No legal rights. Jews may not testify in court against a Muslim and have no legal right to dispute or challenge anything done to them by Muslims. There is no such thing as a Muslim raping a Jewish woman; there is no such thing as a Muslim murdering a Jew (at most, it can be manslaughter) . In contrast, a Jew who strikes a Muslim is killed.

Humiliation and vulnerability. Jews and Christians had to walk around with badges or veils identifying them as Jews or Christians. The yellow star that Jews had wear in Nazi Germany did not originate in Europe. It was borrowed from the Muslim world where it was part of the apartheid system of Dhimmitude.

Conditional protection. The protection of the Dhimmi is withdrawn if the Dhimmi rebels against Islamic law, gives allegiance to non-Muslim power (such as Israel) , refuses to pay the poll-tax, entices a Muslim from his faith, or harms a Muslim or his property. If the protection is lifted, jihad resumes. For example, Islamists in Egypt who pillage and kill the Copts do so because they no longer pay their poll-tax and therefore are no longer protected.

    A rhythmic, catchy piece of writing, but how bloody gruesome! ! ! ! And the inside story on Dhimmitude - Jesus Christ! ! ! ! (pun absolutely NOT intended!) .

    What a f*cked up species we are.
