The laws of Islamic protection, dhimmi, ultimately derive from Israelite laws concerning the "stranger in our midst", which during the times of the Second Temple referred to the Edmonites, under the "protection" of the Hasmonite kingdom.

Neither, I propose, are meant as mechanisms of subjugation, rather as a method of defining a recognized kind of citizenship for resident aliens.

Excellent point!

A friend of mine had a quotation on his wall a few months ago that certainly got me thinking: "All politics stem from religion." (Norm Willis)

Interesting.

Is there an etymological connection between dhimmi and edhomi?

The -d is spirantized here, which makes it very likely.

Nazzam, there is no etymological link, as it would be אזמ if there were. Hebrew's remnant of ذ is ז not ד. The only way they could be linked would be if Arabic borrowed it from Aramaic and if dalet is spirantised for this word in Aramaic.

(edit: Well maybe not the only way, but it's highly unlikely otherwise)
