DHIMMI DUMMY OF THE DAY - Individual Category


It is known as the Veil and is described by its architects as a giant
glass Muslim headscarf in the heart of Paris. The former French
president Jacques Chirac saw it as one way to avert a clash of
civilisations in the run-up to the Iraq war. President Nicolas
Sarkozy calls it the symbol of France's friendship with the Arab
world. (*Others who know their head from a hole in the ground call it dhimmitude*)

The Louvre's bold new Islamic art wing had its first stone laid by
Sarkozy yesterday , launching the museum's most daring project since
IM Pei created the giant glass pyramid 20 years ago. The world's most
visited museum will have Europe's biggest purpose-built exhibition
space for an Islamic art collection, which France hopes will
reconcile the secular republic with the world of Islamic heritage.

Sarkozy again - here speaking to Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin
Abdulaziz Al Saud - also on hand for the event:

«L'islam a porté l'une des plus anciennes et plus prestigieuses
civilisations dans le monde … C'est l'occasion pour les Français et
tous les visiteurs du Louvre de voir que l'islam, c'est le progrès,
la science, la finesse, la modernité et que le fanatisme au nom de
l'islam est un dévoiement de l'islam.»

Islam carried with it the most ancient and most prestigious civilizations in the world (and barbarbic!)… This [exhibit] is the occasion for the French and all the visitors to the Louvre to see that Islam is progress, science, finesse, modernity, and that fanaticism in the name of Islam is a deviation from Islam.

(*said while checking out his Swiss bank account OR while slipping a check to the Saudi Prince for having the honor of being one of the worlds' biggest Dhimmi Dummies! *)
