Dhimmis and Dhimmitude
  Bat Ye'or 


Bat Ye'or, born in Cairo, became a stateless refugee in 1957. On her marriage in 1959, she acquired British citizenship, and a year later settled in Switzerland. A mother of three children (1960-64), since 1971 she has written four books and numerous articles on non-Muslims dhimmis under Islam. Her first study, Les Juifs en Egypte (French/1971; Hebrew/1974) was followed by Le Dhimmi (Paris/1980), whose translation into English (1985; Hebrew/1986; Russian/1991) brought her international recognition. The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians under Islam (1985) remains an essential introduction to her second major work, The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam. From Jihad to Dhimmitude (French/1991; English/1996; German/2002), which put the study of this topic on a new footing that could no longer be ignored. The French edition (1991) confirmed her reputation as a pioneer thinker in a new field of research. This was greatly enhanced by Islam and Dhimmitude. Where Civilizations Collide, which examines the trend toward dhimmitude in the 20th century. Her book, EURABIA: The Euro-Arab Axis (31 January 2005), describes the gradual transformation of Europe into "Eurabia," a cultural and political appendage of the Arab/Muslim world. A serious assessment of the traditional "Jihad Ideology" - and of Dhimmitude - became all the more essential in the aftermath of the terrorist Jihad-war against America on September 11, 2001. Bat Ye'or has revealed the open sesame to "Eurabia," the developing continent of dhimmitude.
