The Drinking From Home blogspot is accepting nominations for the inaugural British Dhimmi Awards. He already has quite an impressive roster of nominees, including David Farr, who bowdlerized Christopher Marlowe’s Tamburlaine the Great so as to avoid offending Muslims; Burger King, for withdrawing its ice cream after a Muslim complained that the artistic representation of the swirl on the package looked like “Allah” in Arabic when held sideways; and the irrepressible George Galloway.
I encourage you to vote over there, but I am also inspired. Nominations are hereby opened for two — that’s right, two — awards inspired by our British friends. In the Comments field here, please place nominations for the American Dhimmi of the Year 2005, and for the Dhimmi Internationale 2005 winner as well. 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.
Also, please give us some suggestions for a suitable award. And note that employees of Jihad Watch and their relatives are not eligible for these twin dhimmiprizes.
Let the nominations begin!
UPDATE: By popular demand, we will be awarding Anti-dhimmi prizes as well, so please continue to nominate candidates for those (U.S. and international). And as for the Dhimmi prize, I am thinking of sending the winner a copy of Fallaci’s seminal The Rage and the Pride. So rather than nominating “France,” try to limit your nominations to people who actually have an address (yes, yes, I know, France has an address too: go to Britain and turn right, but only geographically).
