Islam's black slave trade:  Islam's genocidal slavery part E

SlaveryThe combination of Islam’s anti-black racism (see text in Mohammad’s and Islam’s anti-Black racism.  Part D  in  Islam’s genocidal slavery:) and its hatred for all non-Muslims was unleashed on Africa through raids and invasions from the 7th century on.   Tribal hatreds and wars are a legacy of Islam’s slave trade where certain tribes ‘converted’ and enslaved other tribes.   Africa has been decimated; it’s social fabric, people and cultures destroyed.   The barbarity of Islam has impacted severely on many, inhibiting development, equality, freedom and tolerance.   Islamic slavery was so integrated into African society that many struggle with freedom –many remain enslaved even today.
Jihad slavery, allowed under sharia is an effective weapon of Islamization.

Using the information available on the slave trade, and the survival rate of those in transit to slave markets, estimates suggest 140 million to possibly 180 million black Africans were directly affected  (Scourge 2004)  Add to that those slaughtered in battles to obtain slaves or perishing later as a result of the destruction of the tribe, food or shelter. 

Europe became involved in the slave trade from 1519-1815 –ie Portugese, Dutch, French often selling slaves on to the Spanish.   Briton became involved in the slave trade in the 17th century but outlawed the slave trade in 1807.   The International Treaty of Europe, signed by all the European powers in 1815, included abolition of the slave trade.   Punishments in Briton for involvement in the slave trade moved from 14 years hard labour in 1810 to death in 1825 (Khan 2009, p 324).  A Parliamentary decree in 1833 set ALL slaves in the British Empire free. This was followed by France in 1848, then the Dutch and the new United States in 1865.


Islamic slave trade today


Europeans didn’t need to use force or risk their lives venturing into African jungles searching for slaves, they simply bought the majority from Muslim slave traders or African chiefs and merchants at the coast.   Hence these numbers should be added to Islam’s black slave trade total.  For centuries Islam had operated an extensive network to obtain African slaves.   Merchandise was exchanged for slaves.  

Although Briton worked in Africa and on the seas to halt the slave trade, a further 2 million Africans were enslaved by Muslim Slave Market in Yementraders in the 1800’s alone (19th century). More accurate 1800’s records show that 1.2 million slaves were brought across the Sahara into the Middle-east, plus at least 450,000 that came via the Red Sea and 442,000 from the East African coastal ports ie 2 million black slaves!   At least 8 million are calculated to have died before reaching Islamic slave markets. ( Scourge 2004).  

As we have seen from the text and laws presented in Islam’s genocidal slavery: Religiously ordained Parts A and B (containing translations of Islamic laws left in classical Arabic), and Mohammad’s treatment of black people  in Mohammad’s and Islam’s antiBlack racism.  Part D  in  Islam’s genocidal slavery: ,  Islam fully endorses slavery.  Allah determines who will be enslaved, and provides slaves as a mercy/booty for Muslim men.  Mohammad’s statements and behaviour provided an appalling  example, particularly towards black people.

Some points to contemplate:
1)  The Muslim Arab (Ottoman) controlled black slave trade from Africa was vast and even continues today.
Unbelievably enormous numbers of people were enslaved from the 7th century on, particularly in raids (Bostom 2005, Ye’or 2002, Khan 2009).   
The jihad slave system meant tributaries sent huge contingents of slaves of both sexes to the caliph eg When Amr conquered Tripoli (Libya) in 643, as jizya, Jewish and Christian Berbers had to give their wives and children as slaves to the Arab armies.   Every year for about 600 years, (652-1276) Nubia sent a tribute of slaves to Muslim rulers in Cairo.   Many towns across north Africa sent tributes of slaves.  Nubians and Ethiopians were preferred as their slender features and thin noses were preferred to equatorial Bantus, generally reserved for hard toil, menial tasks. (Trifovik 2002;  Islam and slavery 2007;  Khan 2009  p 285).  

The ‘European/American’  involvement in purchasing African slaves from Arab/African Muslims in particular, lasted just over 3 centuries. (eg . Trifkovic  2002, P173)

2)  There was no abolition of slavery movement in the Arab Islamic world—any end to slavery (at least in public) resulted from western influence or intervention.  Jihad laws incorporate slavery for others (Reliance).

A strong abolition of slavery movement developed in the west, involving black and white anti-slavers, halting slavery (see Islam’s Genocidal Slavery Part C:   Christianity versus Islam; and O’Neill 2009, p59-64 for early Christian efforts against slavery from the earliest centuries)

3)  Islam’s Eunuch slavery:  Eunuch slavery became prominent within 200 years of the initial Arab jihad conquests (ie 9th century) and continued into the 20th century (Bostom 2005, p 92).   Eunuch slaves were obtained from raids outside the Muslim lands.  Under Islam male slaves were Slavery in the Arab World castrated usually between the ages of 4 and 12.  Most were used to supervise women in Muslim harems.  Handsome young boy eunuchs (ghilman) were also used for homosexual activity.

The following text can clearly be read in the Koran as allah sanctioning the use of eunuchs---who clearly lack sexual desire or needs or vigour (capacity to perform sexually), particularly when castrated as children.   


 ***Koran 24.31  “And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess [slaves], or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! So that you may be successful” (shakir translation USC site)


Other translations - eg Asad:  ‘male attendants who are beyond sexual desire’


Malik:  ‘male attendants who lack sexual desires’..


Pickthall:  ‘male attendants who lack vigour.’.


Yusuf Ali: ‘male servants free of physical needs’..       (all from ALIMCDRom)


Ghilman (handsome boy eunuchs) wore “rich and attractive uniforms and often beautified and perfumed their bodies in effeminate fashion”  (Khan 2009  p 312-313).  Khan notes the culture of sodomy amongst the Arabs during Mohammad’s time and after.  This continues into the paradise promised by allah:

***Koran 52.24  Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them, young male servants (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.

***Koran 56.17-18 And there shall wait on them immortal youths with bowls and ewers and a cup of purest wine.

***Koran 76.19 There wait on them immortal youths, whom, when thou seest, thou wouldst take for scattered pearls.


 Disgustingly Muslim apologist Amuni (2008) tries to make Islam sound great by noting the eunuchs (some only) ‘life of luxury.’   Aren’t you just keen to be completely emasculated so you can service your master’s desires or guard his harem?    Eunuchs had to give allegiance to their masters, they had no other choice.  He also tries to make Islam look good by claiming a few part black or full black men almost ruled  (titular rule, regents) in Egypt, one cruel one with a black slave mother and a huge black slave army ruled in Morocco (until Arabs attacked) and another with a small slave army ruled a tiny kingdom in Morocco in the 1880s!   After the centuries of Islamic slavery and the millions involved, these absurd tiny examples are an indictment of Islam.

While Slavic and Greek slaves had their testicles removed, black African slaves had their testicles and penis cut off (Trivkovic 2002,  p174).   Slaves across Islam’s reach eg India, Asia were castrated.  Black slaves were castrated
"based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite."(scourge, 2004).  
Hence only such radically castrated males could be sure not to ‘damage’ the Muslim ruler’s property-his females  (Harem from haram—forbidden, prohibited).

Black slave eunuchs guarding their master's harem (Egypt early 20th Century). Please note the slaves ARE MUSLIM but the are still miserable castrated slaves only. No doublt the apologists of Islam woul like us to belive it was just a great career opportunity for those unfortunate people.

The castration of male slaves was common place.  "The Calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7000 black eunuchs and 4000 white eunuchs in his palace." It was noted that there were widespread "homosexual relations" as well.(Scourge, 2004)

As late as 1903, the Ottoman imperial harem had 400-500 females guarded by 194 black African eunuchs (did nearly 2000 die in obtaining these?) (Bostom, 2005  p92)

Extraordinary rates of morbidity and mortality were associated with the practice –mortality rates of 90% are reported for areas across Africa and some even higher ie survival rates of 1 in 10  to 1 in 30!  Death resulted from haemorrhage or infection  (Bostom 2005; P 93; Scourge 2004). In some cases hot coals may be used to cauterise wounds but this is difficult when the penis has also been removed as it may cause the sealing of the urethra, so urine cannot be released resulting in death.   With a survival rate of 1 in 10, possibly 63,000 died to provide the 7000 black eunuchs for the caliph in Baghdad, and that’s without considering the death rate during the acquisition and transport of slaves!  The numbers that died to supply these eunuchs is mind boggling, particularly if every little Muslim ruler, sheik, wealthy merchant, trader etc had to have some! Dinka Slaves
Islamic law demands amputation of limbs, stoning, clitoridectomy (see text and laws this site), and Mohammad put out people’s eyes so the claimed ‘Islam prohibits physical mutilation’  becomes absurd particularly for infidels. Many eunuchs were castrated before entering Islamic territory or dhimmis were forced to carry out the procedure (eg Jews, Copts)  Remember dhimmis had to clean toilets, remove dead animals, often carryout executions etc- any dirty thing Muslims didn’t want to do.    (see articles on dhimmitude this site)

4)  Under Islam slaves were forced into armies  or used for sex, household labour, menial labour, building, agriculture,  plantation work, mining, or  administration (white Europeans).  Islamic slave armies could be huge eg 50, 000 -250,000 in Morocco, Egypt, Persia.  “Late 18th century, Moroccan Sultan moulay Ismail (r 1672-1727) had an army of black slaves said to number 250,000.”  (Khan 2009, p 286, 302)  At times, the slave armies of one leader were put to the sword by the new ruler. Eg Fatimids based in Cairo, ruling North Africa (10-12th century).

Harems were also huge:  “The harem of Abdal Rahman III (912 - 961) in Cordoba contained over 6000 concubines!  And the one in the Fatimid Palace in Cairo had twice as many “ (Scourge citing Ronald Segal in "Islam's Black Slaves").  

The Ottoman sultans had harems until their empire collapsed in 1921.  In the princely state of Bahawalpur in Sindh the impotent Muslim ruler used hundreds of dildos to satisfy his harem of 390 women til 1954 when taken over by the Pakistani army (Khan 2009, p 311).

However every Muslim man could have concubines or household slaves who provided sex as female slaves were extremely cheap and sex was his right according to allah in Islam’s text and laws.‘.

‘In the 19th century, some 769,000 black slaves were engaged in the Arab plantations of Zanzibar and Pemba, while 95,000 of them were shipped to the Arab plantations in the Mascareme Islands from East Africa alone’  (Khan 2009, p 307-308). (NOTE: this is more black slaves than were transported to the US -about 500,000!)



Black Slaves
The historical Muslim Arabs’ role in the slave trade seems to have been forgotten or forgiven, even by the Africans themselves. 
(pictured Arab slave traders with their cargo - early 20th Century)

Most slaves in the west were for agricultural work or domestic duties.

5)  Muslim Arabs took mainly women and children: The rise of the Turkic Mamelukes (white slave soldiers) (Sookdheo 2007, p165-167) who eventually, due to their huge numbers in the military, took  power in Egypt (9th century) is not an indication of Islam’s nice treatment of slaves, but of the danger of using huge numbers from one group—following this black African slaves were preferred in the Arab Islamic world.

Slaves from West Africa, the Zanj, who had been imported into the Tigris-Euphrates delta to reclaim salt marshland through their backbreaking labour, staged an uprising from 869-883 which even threatened the ruling elite in Baghdad.   Eventually they were defeated, slaughtered or enslaved.  Hence males were considered trouble so females were preferred, making up 2/3 of the slaves. (Islam and slavery 2007).     Adult males were often slaughtered.
The European/American slave trade took more men than women.

6)  The mortality rate for slaves in transit across the Sahara or East Africa was 80-90%.   Many eyewitness reports note the sadism towards slaves who were chained or tied, deprived of food, shelter, water and viciously treated  -ie axed, burnt with red hot irons, whipped, Mortalitybeaten, raped and forced to walk huge distances in any weather and carry great weights.  (Scourge 2004,  Bostom 2005, Spencer 2008)  Children were taken from their parents and families were separated.  Black slaves were stored in underground dungeons (matamores) filled with filth and water and cramped.    Slaves could only climb out to go to the slave market. (Khan 2009, pp293-294).  And the torture didn’t stop when sold to a new owner.

The mortality rate for slaves transported across the Atlantic was possibly 10%.


"The average Englishman on the street was kept in the dark as to what was actually happening on the middle passage, until, in 1785, Thomas Clarkson's landmark study "Slavery and Commerce In the Human Species" was first published at Cambridge.  According to Clarkson's research, 10% of the slaves would normally die during the middle passage”  (Scourge 2004)

 7)  An estimated ‘minimum’ of  14 to 32 million or more African slaves reached the Middle East (Scourge 2004;  Khan 2009, p 334,  Spencer 2008, trifkovic, 2002).   As ~ 80% died in transit before reaching the markets, this suggests at least 112 million died making a total of over 140 million+ victims of the trans- Saharan and east African Arab Islamic slave trade.   This does NOT include those slaughtered in the initial attack or dying due to the destruction of their tribe, village, crops and livestock.  

Sookhdeo ,(2007,  p 250) notes that over 1,700,000 black slaves were exported by Arabs across the trans-Saharan route during 900-1100.  During the same time some 10,000 PER YEAR (ie another 2 million in 200 hundred years) were shipped across the Red sea and Indian Ocean to India and Islamic Asia (ie about 4 million in 200 years alone...)

By the Middle Ages, the Arab word "abd" was in general use to denote a black slave while the word "mamluk" referred to a white slave.  Even as late as the 19th Century, it was noted that in Mecca "there are few families.that do not keep slaves.  They all keep mistresses in common with their lawful wives."(scourge 2004)


Arab Slavers

It is estimated that 10.5-11 million Africans were transported across the Atlantic.   95% went to Portuguese, Spanish and French ‘possessions’ in South and Central America (1519-1815).   Only 5% ended up in what became the United States.    According to "The Slave Trade" by Hugh Thomas, approximately   4 million (35.4%) went to Portuguese controlled Brazil;   2.5 million (22.1%) to the Spanish nations of South and Central America;   2 million (17.7%) to the British West Indies (mostly Jamaica);   1.6 million (14.1%) to French West Indies;   half a million (4.4%) to Dutch West Indies and   half a million (4.4%) to North America (starting in the 1520s)
 (Scourge 2004, Khan 2009, p 324 ) (Why does the US get the blame and accept the shame of slavery?)



Despite ‘speculation’ that a ‘sizable percentage of slaves possessed at least some knowledge of Islam’, Wikkipaedia is hard pressed to name more than a few Muslims arriving in America.  One arrived in central America as a ‘slave of Spain’ and was enslaved by Indians before escaping (YES, Indians practised slavery pre white settlers see scourge, Spencer);  one returned to Africa after a few years; one converted to Christianity; and one actually practised Islam with a tiny group. (LINK)Modern Slavery

  This is not surprising, nor is the statement that some had a ‘knowledge of Islam’ as Islam was responsible for the enslavement of black people so many would know just what Islam meant for them!  As Muslims including black Muslims, were the enslavers, one would expect few slaves to be Muslim though some may have converted en route to save their life.  The superior white Arabs or Afro-Arabs today enslave inferior black people (Christians, Animists, or Muslim) in the Sudan.   

America’s black African population is fed the lie that they were Muslim—in fact Africa was Christian, animist and had a range of other beliefs before Islam invaded, attacked and enslaved.  Despite persecution and enslavement by the Romans, by the 4th century, of the estimated 30 million Christians, most were in Africa and Asia Minor.   

8)  Racism: Where are the expected huge populations of black people in the middle-east?   While many black men were castrated, the Muslim male was free to enjoy the black females but what happened to the offspring?    Were little girls raped, damaging their reproductive organs so they couldn’t reproduce or were they infected and rendered sterile or were the children killed at birth or used as slaves who were castrated or forced into the military or otherwise died without reproducing?

The Atlantic slave trade regarded slaves as valuable assets whose life and progeny should be preserved the Muslim world slaves were cheap, readily available, and dispensable.(Trifkovic 2002)

In Brazil and the US today there are large populations of black people as most slaves could marry and have families.   They have equal rights and freedoms as others and are found across all areas of life.   In the US black people are revered as TV and film stars, sports stars, politicians, academics, doctors, lawyers, tradespeople, chefs, writers and musicians etc.    They can reach the highest levels of government.   

Racism against black people was evident in both situations but in the west efforts are made to overcome racism against all people (black, white, Asian, Indian etc).   Anti-black racism is still evident in the Arab Islamic world following the example of Mohammad (see Mohammad’s and Islam’s antiBlack racism.  Part D  in  Islam’s genocidal slavery).

The first Africans in the British colonies were temporarily indentured servants like many white colonists. Eventually, economic incentives lead to African-American slavery and the legitimating racism. (Keener). However, there were still free black communities composed of ordinary, free black immigrants and offspring and freed slaves.   6 people from the free black community served on the first Board of Managers of the American Anti-Slavery Society (1833-1870) whose membership in 1840 ranged from 150,000-200,000.  It disbanded following the civil war and the full emancipation of slaves.   The American Colonization society founded in 1817 purchased and freed slaves then transported freed slaves and free born black people back to Africa –Liberia (Encyclopaedia Britannica:  ready reference and Index Vol I Printed in USA 1982)

Black Slave GirlWhat is also seldom remembered is that many black Americans in the 19th Century owned slaves.  According to the United States census of 1830, in just the one town of Charleston, South Carolina, 407 black Americans owned slaves themselves.(Scourge 2004).  Obviously black people had rights and could become prosperous, and  own other black people as slaves.  Black religious and business leaders, men and women, were part of the abolitionist movement.  

The first legally recognized slave in the American colonies was owned by a black man who had himself arrived as an indentured servant. The first slave owners on the North American continent were hunter-gatherers.( Spencer, 2008)

9)  Muslims in general and Muslim Arabs in particular, deny their huge involvement and complicity in the African slave trade and the full support of slavery in Islamic text and Mohammad’s example.    Islam did not ‘improve’ slavery in the sense of making it nicer, on the contrary, it religiously ordained this inhumanity and gave slaves and their sexual (and physical) abuse as a right, a mercy, booty for the Muslim male!    Islam’s practices and laws rendered society more barbaric than in the distant past.   Remember many earlier religions demanded kindness to slaves.  Neither Buddha nor Jesus Christ were slave owners or traders.  Manumission of slaves where slaves paid for their freedom or were simply emancipated as a voluntary act of their masters was practised even a thousand years pre-Islam.  Even Islamic text tells us people treated slaves well and manumitted them before Islam.   Allah’s prophet Mohammad was a slave owner and trader who handed females to friends and sexually abused captured females.    Allah made certain people slaves.  Slavery provided great wealth and is an integral part of Islamic civilisation.

Western Christian text and thought  and ideals of freedom and equality stopped slavery.  Under western pressure the Ottomans and Egypt attempted to suppress slavery but this was resisted as anti-Islamic and contrary to sharia.   In 1960, African Muslims going on the Hajj still took slaves to sell in Saudi Arabia. (Khan 2009, p 345).

10)  Islam’s black slave trade continues in the 21st century.   Colonial control halted slavery but today, in ‘independent’ nations under Islam, racism and slavery  re-emerge eg Mauritania and the Sudan where Afro-Arabs/Arabs attack and enslave black Africans who are regarded as inferior.   

 Niger, supposedly ‘abolished’ slavery in 2004 but the ban is widely ignored, and as many as one million people remain in bondage.  “Slaves are bred, often raped, and generally treated like animals.” (Spencer, 2008)

Winston Churchill served in the Sudan and in 1899 wrote:

All [of the Arab Muslim tribes of the Sudan] without exception, were hunters of men.   To the great slave markets of Jeddah a continual stream of negro captives has flowed for hundreds of years.  The invention of gunpowder and adoption by the Arabs of firearms facilitated the traffic...Thus the situation in the Sudan may be summed up as follows:  The dominant race of Arab invaders was increasingly spreading its blood, religion, customs, and language among the black aboriginal population, and at the same time it harried and enslaved them..” (Bostom 2005, P89)

 Nothing has changed!  Sudan set strict sharia in place in 1983 and a 1992 fatwa justified a military onslaught against non-Muslims.  Reports and Islamic slave markettestimonies show slavery, gang rape, sadism, beating, forced conversion to Islam and genocide via slaughter, enslavement, poverty and starvation as food goes only to Muslims.  Islamic scholars openly admit slavery is lawful for ‘prisoners of war’ (infidels) and for the sexual propagation of slaves for their owner.   (Trifkovic 2002 pp176-179).   Hundreds of thousands are involved (Islam and slavery 2007, Spencer 2008).
Repressive Islamic rule is still being spread into the South Sudan despite some ‘separation.’  Darfur in the North and other ‘black’ areas continue to suffer.   Any criticism of policy or human rights abuse is considered blasphemy against Islam (Ye’Or 2002, pp 204-207, 396-397)

The BBC reported in March 2007 that slave raids “were a common feature of Sudan’s 21-year north-south war, which ended in 2005. . . . According to a study by the Kenya-based Rift Valley Institute, some 11,000 young boys and girls were seized and taken across the internal border—many to the states of South Darfur and West Kordofan. . . . Most were forcibly converted to Islam, given Muslim names and told not to speak their mother tongue.” (Spencer, 2008)

Christian Solidarity International freed 15,447 slaves between 1945-1999 (Khan 2009, p 347).  Christians working with local authorities, churches and inter-ethnic peace committees have worked throughout the 20-21st century to release slaves eg 267 released in February/March 2009 (CSI 2009)

Mauritania officially abolished slavery in 1980 but the practice continues with an estimated 200,000 men,  women and children bought and sold like cattle and used as domestics, shepherds and farmhands (Bostom 2005, P 92).  
Thousands of  Haratines (‘black moors’-ie initially black slaves of the Berbers ‘white Moors’) remain ‘slaves-.
 "aside from the shantytowns and a strip of land along the Senegal River, virtually all blacks are slaves and they are more than half the population." (Keener;) .   In June 2006, Mauritania’s president claimed he would fight the slavery in his country. (Sookhdeo 2007;  P 167)

A report in LeVie (French magazine, no. 2562 6/10/94), states that 45,000 young black Africans a year are still kidnapped and reduced to slavery as servants in the Gulf States (Persian Gulf) and Middle East.   This continues in the 21st century.

Slaves in NigerThe article ‘Twenty-first Century African Slaves – In the Land of Islam’ states  ‘From the Niger River to Sudan slavery continues to be practiced and justified in the name of the Koran.’  The article notes the ‘reluctance’ to study Arab/Islamic slavery and the ongoing slave routes and abuse, particularly of black people–they are treated worse than animals.( (www.chiesa)

African and Indian slaves continue to be found in Iran (Bostom jihad, p92).  

Child slavery continues in the Emirates—Dubai’s rulers have been charged with 30,000 counts of child slavery.   Labourers and domestic workers have passports  confiscated and face appalling conditions as virtual slaves. (see  Emirates Melbourne Cup, Slavery and Racism 1/11/08 this site)

Domestic ‘slaves’ are found across the Islamic world most of which only outwardly banned slavery in the late 20th century or early 21st century.  Post 1962, Saudi Arabia alone was estimated to contain a quarter of a million slaves (Keener).  

The slaves of Muslims have been discovered in Britain and the US (see also Mohammad’s and Islam’s antiBlack racism.  Part D  in  Islam’s genocidal slavery: for recent examples).

 Some of the evidence that Islamic slavery still goes on consists of a spate of slavery cases involving Muslims in the United States. A Saudi named Homaidan Al-Turki was sentenced in September 2006 to 27 years to life in prison, for keeping a woman as a slave in his home in Colorado. For his part, Al-Turki claimed that he was a victim of anti-Muslim bias. He told the judge: “Your honor, I am not here to apologize, for I cannot apologize for things I did not do and for crimes I did not commit. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors. Attacking traditional Muslim behaviors was the focal point of the prosecution.” The following month, an Egyptian couple living in Southern California received a fine and prison terms, to be followed by deportation, after pleading guilty to holding a ten-year-old girl as a slave. And in January 2007, an attaché of the Kuwaiti embassy in Washington and his wife were charged with keeping three Christian domestic workers from India in slave-like conditions in al-Saleh’s Virginia home. One of the women remarked: “I believed that I had no choice but to continue working for them even though they beat me and treated me worse than a slave.”  (Spencer, 2008)

Many other cases occur eg Saudi’s in Britain and the US! (Khan 2009, p349-350)

Make no mistake, as Islam revives so do the sacred Islamic institutions of jihad (till all the religion is allah’s), dhimmitude and slavery.  This is the core of Islam and the basis of relations with others.  This is the world view expounded in their text and shown in the fine example of slave-trading, raping and thieving Mohammad whose cruelty to slaves and hatred of black people has been noted in previous articles.

It’s long past time that the far greater practice of slavery by Islam was acknowledged.   The west/ /Christians/British/Americans/ French.. are unique in being the only group to stand against slavery that had existed for thousands of years across cultures.   
If the west is abused for its short period of slavery, how much more condemnation and compensation is required from Islam ?

When I see African refugees and immigrants here dressed in Arabic white robes, following white-Arab supremacist Islam, chanting prayers in Arabic, or even worse, an aboriginal woman wrapped head-to-toe in the heat of Northern Australia, I know there is something very wrong.   And what’s wrong is that our universities, schools, politicians and even religious leaders don’t tell the truth about Islam and its horror history.  Islam’s black slave trade is only half the story for they also took white/European slaves and slaves from Asia stretching into India, Indonesian and Malaysia.   Islam’s European and Asian slave trade will be examined briefly next.


Islam enslaves black Africans

PS. Islam’s aversion to black is revealed in many ways - eg black dogs are highly offensive and are devils (eg *Muslim Book 4 Number 1032, *Sunaan ibn Majah 2.952) and Mohammad said to kill all black dogs (*Abu-Dawud Book 16, Numbers 2839,  2840).   The best sacrificial animals (eg sheep, goats) are white ones, while the least acceptable are black (Reliance of the traveller Law J14.2 P 358).  In strict Islamic countries their offensive women are covered in long black shrouds.

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.

History - Infidels' Resistance

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.

History - Tolerance Myths

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.

History - Violent Jihad

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.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
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.

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.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
