Dhimmitude: an attitude of concession, surrender and appeasement towards Islamic demands.
South Park, equal opportunity satirists, have finally met their match.
No, not the Islamist barbarians who have issued an indirect fatwa against South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the unforgivable crime of satirizing the notion of Muhammed’s appearance.
The veiled threat posted on a jihadist website, is, I’m afraid, totally expected.
It is Hollywood itself that has betrayed Parker and Stone.
In the episode—I viewed the original before it was censored—Muhammed was shown inside a U-haul, inside a mascot’s uniform, and finally as a child’s stick figure drawing.
It was hilarious.
I knew immediately that Parker and Stone would be threatened with a fatwa.
Radical Islam is on the march, and unlike Judaism, Christianity, and Buddhism, Islam demands that non-Muslims submit to their beliefs.
I was also not surprised when Comedy Central censored the episode. Every single reference to Mohammed was bleeped, like a dirty word.
The original episode cannot even be viewed on You Tube.
Islam means submission, and making Hollywood submit to a bunch of deranged Islamic fascists turned out to be easy as pie.
Look, the official position of the Obama administration is that the U.S. is fighting “terrorists in overseas contingency operations.” Not, mind you, Islamist terrorists who subscribe to Salafist Islam.
So why should Hollywood identify an enemy that Obama says does not exist?
Remember when you first heard about Arab Muslim suicide bombings?
They were directed against Jews in Israel.
You were horrified, right?
But there was no great outcry.
In fact, the left reliably defended these terrorist outrages, claiming that the poor oppressed Arabs had no choice against the powerful and evil Jooz.
Consequently, suicide/homicide bombings metastasized in every Muslim battleground across the earth. And now when the bombs go off and body parts are scattered what do you do?
The same with beheadings.
When Daniel Pearl was beheaded you shuddered. This is not possible, you said to yourself. What kind of barbarians commit such acts.
But at the same time you were assured by, ahem, moderate Muslims in America, that Islam is the religion of peace.
Peace means the absence of conflict, so when enough people are beheaded, well, there you go:
Welcome to the peaceful Islamist landscape.
And when the Afghan Taliban exploded the ancient Bamiyan Buddhist statues, again, you were horrified.
But the West did nothing.
After all, it’s their culture, and all cultures and religions are the same.
The liberal Hollywood elite—who bravely compared President Bush to Hitler—will submit.
In fact, a prominent Hollywood producer said to me: “Parker and Stone should have known better.”
Thus, the victims become the aggressors.
It’s like cutting off a man’s leg and blaming him for limping.
Producers will insist on alternative antagonists: Neo-Nazis, right-wing militias, Evangelical Christians, Tea Party members, multinational corporations, the Pope, and oh yes, the frightening Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh.
Comedy Central should have run the episode. And every network and cable station should have broadcast the episode at the very same time.
The American airwaves should have been wall to wall with this episode.
Such defiance is the only way to fight radical Islam.
But cowardice and appeasement have won the day.
Welcome to Dhimmi Hollywood.
Where the future bodes well for 7th century Islam.
The future for Parker and Stone is less certain. Like the novelist Salman Rushdie, and the courageous freedom fighter Ayaan Hirsi Ali, both threatened with murder via fatwa, they will need 24/7 security.
I strongly recommend former Israeli commandos who provide such services.
Unlike President Obama, these men know the enemy well.
