“Death before dhimmitude.”

That’s expressed in a comment below this post, one of many you'll see concerning a new "intellectuals’ Manifesto against Islamism."

They're mostly Muslim intellectuals, or at least semi-Muslim, so that's good. The Manifesto's not long yet it’s complex: there are turns of phrase that could point back at the US, for instance. But essentially, it’s all about pointing clearly at the modern Great Enemy of the morally serious. (Other than me, that is.)

“Death before dhimmitude," though: that’s interesting. I imagine I know people who won’t sign up for that.
