The Ayatollahs' Final Solution (Continued IV) By: Andrew G. Bostom

57  Professor Eliz Sanasarian provides one particularly disturbing example of this Islamic state-sanctioned Judenhass, involving the malevolent indoctrination of young adult candidates for national teacher training programs. Affirming as objective, factual history the hadith* account of Muhammad’s supposed poisoning by a Jewish woman from ancient Khaybar, Sanasarian notes, 

“Even worse, the subject became one of the questions in the ideological test for the Teachers’ Training College where students were given a multiple-choice question in order to identify the instigator of the martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad, the ‘correct’ answer being ‘a Jewess.’ ” [Sanasarian, E. Religious Minorities in Iran, p. 111]

[* Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 47, Number 786: Narrated Anas bin Malik: ‘A Jewess brought a poisoned (cooked) sheep for the Prophet who ate from it. She was brought to the Prophet and he was asked, ‘Shall we kill her?’ He said, ‘No.’ I continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of the mouth of Allah's Apostle’]

58 Afshari, Reza. Human Rights in Iran-The Abuse of Cultural Relativism, University of Pennsylvania Press, 2001, p.136. Sanasarian observes that beyond the well publicized execution of Habib Elganian in May 1979,


“…many more Jews compared to other RRMs [recognized religious minorities], were imprisoned, and by December 1980 seven known Jews were executed; by 1982 there were two more.” [Sanasarian, E. Religious Minorities in Iran, p. 113.]


59  In his detailed psychosocial analysis of the Serbian dhimmis under Turkish Muslim rule, early 20th century sociologist and geographer Jovan Cvijic described how the Serbs “moral mimicry” accentuated their submission. Thus the Serbs (exemplifying prototypical dhimmi adaptive behaviors), became,


“…increasingly accustomed to forming an inferior servile class whose duty it is to win his master’s approval, to cringe before him, and to please him…used to hypocrisy and lowliness, because this is necessary for them to live and to protect themselves from violence.” [Cvijic, J. La Peninsule Balkanique, Paris, 1918, pp. 387-388.]

61 See note 59 above; Bat Ye’or has provided this recent historical definition of dhimmitude, which applies to all non-Muslim populations subjugated under the Shari’a: 


Dhimmitude derives from the surrender of the Christian clergy and political leaders to the Muslim jihad armies, and their submission to Islamic domination of both their lands and peoples. In exchange, they received a pledge of protection ('dhimma') from the Muslim sovereign - and the cessation of the jihad war. This "protection" was conditioned on a ransom payment (jizya) that was extorted from the vanquished Christian and Jewish populations (dhimmis). Sometimes, Christian submission to Islam was rooted in personal ambition. Dhimmitude often induced self-hatred, and hatred against Jews and Christians who resisted the jihad and Muslim domination. Christian dhimmitude has been a world force for Islamization throughout history”

62 Goldhagen, D.J. Hitler’s Willing Executioners, New York, 1997. Goldhagen’s summary observation from his Epilogue, p. 455, is of particular relevance:


“This study of the Holocaust and its perpetrators assigns their beliefs paramount importance…Its conclusion that the eliminationist anti-Semitic German political culture, the genesis of which must be and is explicable historically [emphasis added], was the prime mover of both the Nazi leadership and ordinary Germans in the persecution and extermination of the Jews, and therefore was the Holocaust’s principal cause, may at once be hard to believe for many and commonsensical for others.”
