 Granted, "Dhimm-information" is a bit of stretch when it comes to neologisms. But we need a new term for melding the concept of disinformation with the promotion of dhimmitude. Here is an example of how it works--or, rather, how it is working.
    First, here are the facts.
    Writing at the Counterterrorism Blog, Jeffrey Imm ruined my breakfast--I mean, reported on an upcoming Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal conference to be held in the United Arab Emirates (site of the new Ethipia-shaped home ofBrangelina.
    The conference is on "Islamic and Ethical Finance." Imm notes that the conference advertises itself as examining "the huge opportunities presented by this high-growth sector." (To begin to get a handle on why the "huge opportunities" that "Islamic finance" presents are for Islamization, read this
article by Alyssa A. Lappen.)  Imm continues:
      "The Wall Street Journal's `Chief Shariah Officer' for this November 18 conference is Shaykh Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo, who has worked for the pro-Wahhabist International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) organization and who was secretary of the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) beginning in 1989.  IIIT was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of the Muslim Brotherhood's like-minded `organizations of our friends.'  The Investigative Project has linked members of the FCNA to Islamist extremism and terrorism."
    Let's back up: THE WALL STREET JOURNAL'S CHIEF SHARIAH OFFICER????? I guess WSJ now stands for Wall Submission Journal. But the real point of this post is how Yusef Talal DeLorenzo, the WSJ's Chief Shariah Officer (oh, brother) with the alarming ties to caliphate-promotion, is presented to Average Joes, say, reading their morning newspaper--the Boston Globe, for instance.
    In other words, here is the Dhimm-information:
    " `Islamic finance is just finance - it's conservative, people-oriented finance,' says Shaykh Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo, a Virginia-based shariah scholar who consults for many of the banks and firms that have set up Islamic financial instruments. At a time of volatile markets, he says, `I think a lot of people are going to start taking a look at what we're doing.' "
    With a gimlet eye, I hope.
