Last night I announced, somewhat on the spur of the moment, that nominations were open for two awards: the American Dhimmi of the Year 2005 and the Dhimmi Internationale 2005. These should, of course, be those who behaved in the most pusillanimous, abject, and/or suicidally stupid ways in the face of Islamic jihadist bullying and intimidation, peaceful or violent.
We also plan to award the American Anti-Dhimmi Prize for 2005, and the Anti-Dhimmi Internationale 2005.
I encourage you to search through the archives here — on both the Jihad Watch and Dhimmi Watch sides — and you will find many, many worthy candidates for both honor and dishonor.
Jihad Watch staff and relatives of staff are not eligible for either the Dhimmi or the Anti-Dhimmi prizes.
Tentative plans involve awarding winners in both categories with a copy of Oriana Fallaci’s The Force of Reason, which will soon be available in English — but I am open to suggestions for prizes.
Please nominate individuals, not groups or entire nations or secret societies. There are already a number of good nominations at the original announcement at Dhimmi Watch (linked above).
