Abraham LincolnIslam’s Genocidal Slavery Part C:   Christianity versus Islam

Slavery was stopped by Christians based on Christian text, ethics and the centrality of love thy neighbour as thyself, all are equal, and that one should not live off the sweat of others ie work is honourable.  In Islam, slavery is ‘religiously ordained’ by allah (booty and sex with slave females), practised by slave-trading and raping Mohammad and incorporated into sharia for eternity.  Slavery is part of the Islamic world view where Islam dominates and others suffer dhimmitude and slavery. As the highly important Saudi cleric Al-Fawzan stated in 2003
“slavery is part of  jihad  and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam.”   (source) 

 (see details in ‘Islam’s genocidal slavery:  Religiously ordained’  and articles on dhimmitude this site).  I am not Christian but am constantly stunned that Christianity, the west, whites (all of which have been slaves of Islam and others) are given the blame for slavery while Islam’s pro-slavery text, practices, laws and long history of brutal slavery are either ignored completely or made to look like something that was really fun  for those lucky slaves!
 
In writing this I don’t imply that so-called Christians, Christian leaders, ‘the Church’ in some instances and nominally Christian countries didn’t ‘accept’ slavery as part of life or weren’t involved in the slave trade nor do I imply that such a trade was anything but horrific.   However, can Christian text and the example of Jesus be blamed ? –I  don’t think so, particularly compared with Islam.   No Christian ‘church’ today supports slavery.


Christianity began in the middle-east under Roman control.   Slavery was widely practiced by the Greeks and Romans with large portions of the population slaves.  Jesus was a Jew (persecuted) and he and his followers were NOT in a position of political power.   The apostles and early Christians were persecuted and killed and such persecution continued for around 3 centuries.   Unlike Mohammad, they were not involved in military conquest or raids against others.  

In contrast, Islam supposedly began in Arabia at least 600 - 700 years later and Mohammad had far reaching political, military, and religious power.  Mohammad stopped adoption to ‘marry’ his ‘adopted’ son’s (ex)wife Zainab but clearly had no intention of stopping slavery, his main source of income in his powerful final years.  Slaves were obtained by conquest, raids, treaties of submission that included tributes of people from conquered groups, gifts and the children of slaves were inherited by the owner as slaves.  
 
 
Despite the official rhetoric, children continue to be sold into slavery in the Middle East. According to UNICEF reports there are 40,000 child camel jockeys on the Arabian Peninsula alone.
 
Arabs poured out of Arabia across wide areas of the world, conquering, slaughtering, enslaving, raping, subjugating and ‘converting.’  

Jesus and the disciples didn’t kill, pillage, enslave, rape and sell people or tell others to do so.  Jesus did not share females out for friends to enjoy, Mohammad did.  

Christianity does not have the institutions of jihad, dhimmitude and slavery, so central to Islam.  

The basis of Christianity is the ten commandments (love god, honour parents,  don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t  lie, don’t covert,.. ) and the core value of love thy neighbour as thyself.   In Christianity, all are equal in the eyes of god.  There is nothing here that endorses slavery.

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy  soul,  and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength;  this is the first commandment.
And the second is like, namely this.  Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  There is none other commandment greater than these.   Mark 12:30-31

Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them;  for this is the law and the prophets.  Matthew 7.12

Four of the five pillars of Islam are about homage to allah and the remaining refers to Zakat which can be used to achieve the often called 6th pillar of Islam –jihad or fighting to make all the religion allah’s- ( eg Koran 8:39;   Reliance of the Traveller : jihad,  law o9.0 p 599;  Zakat for allah’s fighters for weapons etc law h 8.17 p272) with its slavery and dhimmitude for conquered, captured people.Slaves in Mauretania

Christian text tells us that god loves all people, even the sinners and all are equal.  Salvation is promised to anyone anytime they ask for forgiveness.   In contrast, allah loves few people and even Muslims including Mohammad (Koran 46.9) cannot be sure they will reach ‘paradise’.  People with black faces go to hell (linking black with inferior, unacceptable;  Koran 39.60;   3.106).  Islamic text tells us that pre-birth allah determines your life (slavery?) and whether you will reach paradise or hell (koran 17.13-14;  *Bukhari v4 book 55 No.549; *Muslim book 33 heaps including hell for children, book 33 No. 6436).   Allah deliberately leads you astray (Koran 45.23;  16.93, 16.108 lots more)  and blows your sin into you (Muslim book 33 No. 6406),  to fulfil his promise to fill hell with jinn and people (Koran 32.13;  11.119), women in particular!(*Bukhari  Vol. 2, Book 18, No. 161;  Vol 7, Book 62, No. 124; Vol. 1, Book 6, No.  30;   Vol 2, Book 24, No. 541more..:)(see  ‘Evil Allah leads people astray’ this site).   
Allah made slaves inferior and gave them less (Koran 16.71, 16.75)

Text, Mohammad’s example and laws clearly point out that all are not equal and allah has sent laws to control the separate groups –white Arab Muslim men (superior to others), other Muslim men, Arab Muslim women (must marry an Arab Muslim eg Reliance of the Traveller  Law m4.2 (1) p523), other Muslim women, dhimmis and slaves.  Sexism, racism and religious apartheid are clearly evident.

The claimed love thy neighbour of Islam doesn’t apply to non-Muslims, only Muslims/believers are ‘brothers’ (koran 49.10). Eg
***Bukhari vol 1  book 2, No. 12 ‘Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, "None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself."   (As on USC site)
***Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 622:   Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar:   Allah's Apostle said, "A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, ….

Any kindness to neighbours implies Muslim neighbours or those you hope to convert by softening their hearts.  Muslims  are told to be ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another (Koran 48.29) and to fight and show harshness to disbelievers close to them (Koran 9.123), or slay them (Koran 2.191) and smite off their necks/heads/fingertips (Koran 47.4,  8.12) etc!! Non-Muslims including family, cannot be friends (Koran 3.28, 4.89, 4.144, 5.51, 5.56-64,  58.22,  60.1).  Muslims are told to follow the example of Abraham(??) and have hostility and hatred forever between them and others until the others believe in allah ( Koran 60.4).  Allah hates the unbelievers and  Muslims must hate what allah hates (Reliance of the Traveller  law w 59.2 p1015). Unbelievers are the worst of beings (Koran 98.6).  There’s so much hate text/laws in Islam that it is sheer insanity or blatant lying to suggest any ‘golden rule’ other than kill for allah!  Enslaving others poses no problem for Islam.

Old Testament, pre-Christian text:
Slavery was an everyday, centuries long practice that Jews and Christians were born into.   The recorded existence and acceptance of slavery as an everyday feature of life should NOT be confused with Islam where slavery/booty and sex with slaves captured in war, bought or given as gifts is an allah given right exemplified by slave-trading Mohammad and legalised in sharia forever.

Slave Girl from NigerThe Jews of the Old Testament were slaves.  The Old Testament, written thousands of years ago, mentions slavery for criminals and insolvent debtors.   People could voluntarily become ‘slaves/servants’ for a time to work off debts or improve their situation and this cannot be confused with Islam’s slavery of conquest, tribute, or ownership.   Old testament text also mentions purchasing bond men and women  including children whose families offer them for sale and selling your daughter.  This sounds horrifying to us but poor and persecuted people today still sell their children.    But, kidnapping and enslaving law abiding citizens was forbidden and incurred the death penalty:

"Anyone who kidnaps another and either sells him or he be found in his hand, must be put to death."  Exodus 21:16  

"and .proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all the inhabitants: ....and ye shall return everyman unto his possession and ye shall return every man unto his family" Leviticus 25:10  and 17 “Ye shall not oppress one another...

Limits are put on the time a slave/Hebrew servant  must serve (6 years) before going free (Exodus 21:2)  and if his wife came with him, she is also free but if the wife was given by the master, she remains and he must choose to leave her or remain a slave (Exodus 21:2-6).  Leviticus 25 talks at length about kindness to others including strangers, treating them well, redeeming ‘servants,’  not compelling them to be bond servants but hired servants who can with his children be freed to return to his family etc if Hebrew.  Others can be bought as slaves in your possession and they and their children can be inherited (Islam and sharia written  nearly 2 thousand  years later allows the lifelong slavery and inheritance of Muslim and non-Muslim  slaves!!).   Sudanese Muslims today are enslaved by Afro-Arab Muslim slave traders!

 Regrading selling your daughter as a maidservant, if  she pleases not the master who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed, and he cannot sell her into a strange nation.  If he marries her to his son she becomes as a daughter and if he takes another wife she retains her food, clothes etc.  If the master doesn’t do these things she is free. (Exodus 21:7-11).  

Other text promises if a man smites or damages the eye or tooth of his maid or manservant, they go free (Exodus 21:26-27).  

Text in Deuteronomy talks of battles with certain listed enemies at a particular time (not an endless jihad to force allah’s religion onto all as in Islam) and notes that if you desire a female from the captives, she becomes your wife, removing the raiment of captivity, and you must wait a month to have sex with her.  If you then find no delight in her, you cannot sell her but you must let her go free (Deuteronomy 21.10-14).   

Islam allows men to enslave, and immediately rape and sell the females with no requirement for marriage, or freedom.   
Female Slave - Mali
Mali - female slave labourers. A young adult male laborer in Mali might only fetch $40, whereas an HIV-free female might attract a price of up to $1000. Expert Kevin Bales says that because modern slavery is so cheap,  people have become disposable and their living conditions are worse than ever before as a result of their value. 

Yes there are battles, captives and pillage (limited to an historical time and place)  particularly in tales supposedly preceding Moses receiving the 10 commandments in the Old Testament but there’s far more in the unending violence in more recent Islamic text.

But, even in this very ancient, pre-Christian, pre-Islamic, text written by men during times of enormous slavery, we see protection of slaves/servants  and freedom.    Today such text is put into historical context.  Islam, written far  later,  regards the Koran as the absolute word of allah for eternity, Mohammad is the perfect example forever and sharia is the law of allah eternally endorsing slavery.     In my reading of Islam, it is even worse than the ancient Old Testament text 1-2 thousand years earlier, yet we are constantly told that vicious slave-trading Mohammad really wanted to ‘reform’ slavery and make it so much ‘nicer’ when in fact he brought back even greater barbarity to others.

Slave's Bracelet
Slaves in Mali are  forced to wear ankle bracelets as a sign of their status and most importantly to prevent them from running away. A single bracelet   weights over 2 kilos.

New Testament Christianity:
  People are hard pressed to lay slavery onto Jesus who never enslaved or raped or killed or promised slaves or booty to his men.  (though one site, through gross lying about text attempted to do so — see below)

In the New Testament, Jesus spoke many words that proclaim freedom, spiritual and physical -
"The Spirit of the Lord is on Me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering the sight of to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised/oppressed."  Luke 4:18

The worst you will find is written by Paul, a mere mortal of his time who stated:
“Slaves, be obedient to those who are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as to Christ” (Paul’s letter to Ephesians. 6:5).

And in Paul’s letters to Timothy:
Let  as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of  all honour, that the name of god and his doctrine be not blashphemed.
And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren: but rather do them service because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit.  These things teach and exhort.  (1 Timothy 6:1-2)
Pakistani Slaves
In Thar Pakar – Sindh province of Pakistan alone,  there is an estimated 50,000 bonded labourers according to the statistics given by the Human Rights commission of Pakistan, who have consequently freed 7,500 bonded labourers since 1995.
Total cost to free one family is ca:$AU 1176.00

But he redeemed himself :   When the apostle Paul wrote to Philemon, concerning Philemon’s escaped slave whom he was sending back, he urged Philemon to welcome back Onesimus:
"not now as a servant, but above a servant,  a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh and in the Lord"  Philemon 15-16.

New Testament text punishes slave-traders and speaks against slavery—after all one cannot love ones neighbour as oneself and then enslave them!
  ".the Law is made not for the righteous but for the lawless and disobedient, .... for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for whoremongers, .. for slave traders (menstealers) and liars and perjurers." 1 Timothy 1:9-10
"Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." John 8:32

".Now the Lord is that spirit; and  where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom/liberty." 2 Cor. 3:17

*There is a sense of equality for all, not just co-religionists –

"And hath made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on the face of the earth...." Acts 17:26

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28
“But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.  And whoever exalts himself will be abased (humbled). And he who humbles himself will be exalted”  Matthew 23.11-12:      (Hence the western ideal of elected leaders as servants of the people –ha, ha)

*Work was made honourable.  Jesus was a carpenter:
  “By taking up the axe, the saw, the hammer and the plane, our Lord endued labour with a new dignity.  Christianity undercut slavery by giving dignity to work.  By reforming work, Christianity transformed the entire social order” (1).  

The idea of living off the work of others is questioned and unacceptable even in the Old Testament -  his inspired Abraham Lincoln’s anti-slavery views.


“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground;..”  Genesis 3.19

The west has workers rights and unions and government institutions to protect workers but where is such protection in the Islamic world eg Dubai where workers, particularly darker skinned ones are virtual slaves as are the Filipino women in Saudi Arabia and many female workers in the Emirates, Kuwait etc

Disgracefully one website attempted a complete perversion of text to try to associate Jesus with beating slaves.
Jesus has told his disciples to fear not and to give alms , he refers to rewards for good servants and tells a parable about good servants - Luke 12: 40-48  he blesses the faithful, wise steward/servant, watching, ready for their lord but:
“if that servant say in his heart , My lord delayeth his coming:  and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidservants, and to eat and drink and be drunken”        and the lord of that servant will come when the servant is not aware    “And that servant which knew his lord’s will, and didn’t prepare  himself,  or act  according to his (lords) will, shall be beaten many stripes (verse 47) But he that knew not and committed things worthy of stripes shall be beaten with few stripes.  For unto whomsoever much is given, of him ..much is required ..(verse 48)

Verse 47  in context is clearly is NOT an instruction to beat ordinary servants at all but is Jesus telling his followers that they should NOT beat their servants, become drunk or commit other acts that are against the teachings and will of their Lord for they don’t know when the day of reckoning is coming when those who knew what was expected and deliberately went against their Lord may be justly judged.   But, beating menservants and maidservants is against the lord’s (Lord’s) will!

From the beginning, Christianity has a long history of efforts to stop slavery and free slaves:
Slaves were baptised, had souls and were regarded as human beings, equal in the eyes of god.  Such views were  expressed before Islam existed (7th or 8th century or ??..).

“During the 2nd and 3rd Centuries many tens of thousands of slaves were freed by people who St Augustineconverted to Christ.  St. Melania was said to have emancipated 8000 slaves, St. Ovidius freed 5000, Chromatius freed 1400, Hermes 1200.  Many of the Christian clergy at Hippo under St. Augustine "freed their slaves as an act of piety." (1)

In  AD 315, the Emperor Constantine, just two years after he issued the edict of Milan, legalising Christianity, imposed the death penalty on those who stole children to bring them up as slaves.91)(1)
 
St. Augustine (354 - 430) saw slavery as the product of sin and as contrary to God's Divine plan (The City of God).  St. Chrysostom in the 4th Century, taught that when Christ came He annulled slavery.  He proclaimed "in Christ Jesus there is no slave.therefore it is not necessary to have a slave. Buy them, and after you have taught them some skill by which they can maintain themselves, set them free."  (1)
 
St. Patrick (390-460), the English missionary to the Irish, was once  a slave himself, kidnapped from his home and taken to Ireland against his will. Patrick spoke out strongly against slavery.  He wrote:  "But it is the women kept in slavery who suffer the most."(1)
 
The Emperor Justinian (482-565) abolished all laws that prevented the freeing of slaves.(1)
 
St. Isidore of Seville (560–636) declared that “God has made no difference between the soul of the slave and that of the freedman.” His statement was rooted in what St. Paul told the slaveowner Philemon about his runaway slave Onesimus: “Perhaps this was why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back forever, no longer as a slave but as more than a slave, as a beloved brother” (Phil. 15–16). (2)
In the year 649, Clovis II, king of the Franks, married a slave—who later began a campaign to halt the traffic in slaves. The Catholic Church now honors her as St. Bathilda. (2)

Charlemagne (742-814) and others later also opposed the practice in Christian Europe.(4)

The Emperor JustinianFor centuries, throughout the Middle Ages, bishops and church councils recommended the redemption of captive slaves, and for five centuries the Trinitarian monks redeemed Christian slaves from Moorish (Muslim) servitude.” (1)
 
In 1102AD, the London Church Council outlawed slavery and the slave trade.  By the 12th Century slaves in Europe were rare, and by the 14th Century slavery was almost unknown on the continent of Europe. (1) Christian action for reformation and revival 2004)
 
And in the New World, when the Spanish conquistadors were energetically enslaving South American Indians, and importing black Africans as slaves as well, their chief opponent was a Catholic missionary and bishop, Bartolome de las Casas (1474–1566), who was instrumental in compelling the Spanish crown to enact a law in 1542 prohibiting the enslavement of the Indians.(4)
 
And some more recent antislavery fighters:
The pioneering English abolitionists Thomas Clarkson (1760–1846) and William Wilberforce (1759–1833) were both motivated to work for an end to slavery by their deep Christian faith; so was the American anti-slavery crusader William Lloyd Garrison (1805–1879), who remarked in a speech in Charleston, South Carolina on the day Abraham Lincoln was shot: “Abolitionism, what is it? Liberty. What is liberty? Abolitionism. What are they both? Politically, one is the Declaration of Independence; religiously, the other is the Golden Rule of our Savior.” (4 p 94 book)
Abraham Lincoln was himself much preoccupied with Genesis 3:19, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread.” In May 1864, he wrote to a delegation of Baptists, “To read in the Bible, as the word of God himself, that ‘In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,’ and to preach there–from that, ‘In the sweat of other mans faces shalt thou eat bread,’ to my mind can scarcely be reconciled with honest sincerity.” (4  p 94 book)
Other Christians worked hard to halt slavery eg  John Wesley (1703-1791  Methodist, Advocated freedom from slavery to Wilberforce, sent strong anti-slavery messages to Europe and America),  John Newton (initially a slave trader who challenged slavery (1725-1807),  William Carey (1761-1831), David Livingstone (1831-1873 –who lived in Africa freeing Africans from slavery and teaching Christianity), Lord Shaftsbury (1801-1885),  General Charles Gordon (1833-1885 a British Army officer involved in suppressing Islam’s slave trade, particularly in Africa including DARFUR.  He was beheaded in the Sudan by Mohammad Ahmed’s soldiers and his head displayed and abused) .

Throughout most of the 19th century, British navy ships intercepted slave ships and freed slaves.  (1)  Britain abolished slavery in 1807.  
Likewise in ‘America’:  Leaders and religious groups fought strongly against slavery eg Quakers, Harriet Beecher Stowe, the American anti-slavery society (1833), anti-slavery papers...Many black Christians were involved eg  
 
“Frederick Douglass (an ordained A. M. E. Zion deacon), Sojourner Truth, and the great heroine of the underground railroad, Harriet Tubman.   Some Black Christians, in fact, practiced a resistance more vibrant than that of the Nation of Islam. Whatever else we may say of it, slave revolts were led by such figures as Nat Turner, a Baptist preacher; Denmark Vesey, with much A. M. E. support; Gabriel Prosser, envisioning himself as a new Samson; and the White visionary John Brown.  The Black minister David Walker called hypocritical White Christians "devils" in 1829, although (unlike the original Nation of Islam) he allowed for exceptions.” (2  Keener )

Slavery ended in medieval Europe and it ended completely in America, Britain and the west through the actions of devout Christians based on Christian text and the central themes of love thy neighbour, equality for all and the honour of your own work rather than living parasitically off the sweat of others. .   
 
Slavery was eventually stopped in the western world and is regarded as morally unacceptable.  Yes, there was a terrible history of slavery, yes there was racism but such behaviour was not unique to the west and was not religiously ordained or practised by Jesus as it was practised byWiliam Wilberforce Mohammad – though some supposedly Christian individuals/groups tried to use biblical references to slave owning to retain their cheap labour force.

It’s time Christians and the west generally, stopped self-flagellating over slavery which is acknowledged as vile.  It’s time Christian attempts to halt slavery were acknowledged.   It’s long past the time when the ongoing, vastly bigger, racist, sectarian, vicious slave trade of Islam was exposed.   It must be remembered that Christianity is a private belief system  with a separation between church and state (government and law).  Some supposedly religious groups or ‘Christian’ rulers have wielded power, but ‘Christianity’ is not a totalitarian system of religion/government/law like Islam.  Islamic nations enacting sharia have virtually identical Islamic laws as the 4 main law schools differ little while ‘Christian’ nations have differing national (not religious) laws.   Many Muslims brag that Islam is a fixed ‘blueprint’ for the absolute control of society and the ‘blueprint’ includes slavery!  

In Islam, Christianity is the religion of inferior people who were enslaved or forced into dhimmitude under Islamic rulers and masters.   The Islamic world view requires others be killed, converted, subjugated to dhimmitude or enslaved.
 
Under Islam’s ‘justice’, slavery is the punishment for unbelief! (or for inferior Muslims eg black people).

But we get, ‘academics’ so desperate to get Islamic funding or their ‘research’ passed by Islamic controllers of our university departments, that the horrifying truth can’t be told.  Websites like wikipedia ignore Christianity’s earlier anti-slavery activists, ignore the example of Jesus and his central teachings pre-Islam and do their best to put the worst possible slant on so-called ‘Christianity’ and slavery while Islam’s monstrous slavery is presented as ‘humane’ and  Mohammad’s monstrous slave-trading is ignored. We are told to admire Mohammad’s manumission of his slave Zaid which occurred BEFORE Mohammad became allah’s prophet and has nothing to do with Islam (Sirat Rasul’allah p 714, note 151) (he later removed adoption so he could have sex with Zaid’s exwife!).  We are told to admire Mohammad (aged about 60) who ‘manumitted’ and married beautiful, teenaged Safiya when she asked for freedom after  Mohammad attacked her tribe as they went to their fields, killing men and enslaving the women and children!    Don’t mention all those Mohammad slaughtered  and enslaved!   What signs of Mohammad’s ‘humanity,’ ie  lust, sadism, and greed!   There is no ‘Abolitionism’ or equality in Islam as any consideration of its text and laws  (women, dhimmi, slave) shows.  Are sites which display such anti-Christian, pro-Islamic bias afraid of Islam, or just politically correct, or are their editors or financiers Muslim?   Who knows but sadly the bias is there!

Will anyone stand for truth and reason or will Islam’s lies be written in our books and forced onto our children making them ‘slaves’ of Islam?

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

History - Tolerance Myths

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.
