Slavery is part
of Jihad, and Jihad will remain as long there is Islam.

conquered areas of Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Greece and the
Mediterranean, over a million Europeans were carried off into slavery. Medieval
Catholic religious orders of the Trinitarians or Mathurins collected donations
to ransom people from Muslim slavery. Muslims enslaved an estimated 180 million
Africans over its 1,400 year expansion. When Louis Farakhan criticizes
Jews for owning slaves because a few did, he should criticize Muslims for not
only owning but enslaving them but he won't do that because he is a Muslim.
It was white Christians that opposed slavery and that fought a civil war in the
United States to end slavery. Despite that there are
more slaves today than at any time in human history.
Peter Hammond in his
Slavery Terrorism and Islam wrote that the Muslim slave trade dwarfed the
trans-Atlantic slave trade and the North American slave trade was only 5% of the
trans-Atlantic slave trade. Since its inception ISIS has had a
brutal record of murdering men and enslaving women. Slavery in Muslim countries
is also currently taking place in countries such
as Sudan and Saudi Arabia. Peter Hammond wrote that:
at least 28 million Africans were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East.
As at least 80% of those captured by Muslim slaver raiders were calculated
to have died before reaching the slave markets, it is estimated that the
death toll from the 14 centuries of Muslim slave raids into Africa could
have been over 112 million. When added to the number of those sold in
the slave markets, the total number of African victims of the Trans Sahara
and East African slave trade could be significantly higher than 140 million
many children born to slaves in the Americas, and millions of their
descendants are citizens in Brazil and the USA to this day, but very few
descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survive.
Most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East slave bazaars were
castrated and most of the children born to the women were killed at birth -
in order to maintain Arab numerical supremacy.
The Dogon tribe in
Africa would place wet mats on their roofs to cool their homes. The water
would evaporate and cool the air which would flow downward into the home because
cold air is heavier than warm air. I looked them up on the internet to

Dogon villages have frequently fallen victim to Islamic slave raiders.
Neighboring Islamic tribal groups acted as slave merchants, as the growth
of cities increased the demand for slaves across the region of West Africa.
The historical pattern has included murder of indignenous males by Islamic
jihadists and enslavement of women and children. As early as the 12th
century AD the Dogon people fled west to avoid conversion to Islam and
At the end of the eighteenth century, the jihads that were triggered by the
resurgence of Islam caused slaves to be sought for warfare
The very word
“slave” stems from “Slav,” which in turn derives from the Slavish people’s
experience of having been enslaved en masse by North African Muslims.
In his fact-filled work on the history of the Muslim Arab slave trade in Africa,
Murray Gordon wrote that this trade pre-dated the European Christian African
slave trade by a thousand years and continued after the Europeans had abolished
the practice. Jack Kerwick wrote
British Empire, ... brought the full weight of their military and economic
weight to bear upon Africans, Arabs, and Asians who had to be coerced into
abandoning the practice of slave-trading.
The Qur'an commentator
Maulana Bulandshahri explains the wisdom of
slavery and longs for the good old days:
During Jihad (religion
war), many men and women become war
captives. The Amirul Mu’minin [leader of
the believers, or caliph – an office now
vacant] has the choice of distributing
them amongst the Mujahidin [warriors of
jihad], in which event they will become
the property of these Mujahidin. This
enslavement is the penalty for disbelief
He goes on to explain that
this is not ancient history:
None of the injunctions
pertaining to slavery have been
abrogated in the Shari’ah. The reason
that the Muslims of today do not have
slaves is because they do not engage in
Jihad (religion war). Their wars are
fought by the instruction of the
disbelievers (kuffar) and are halted by
the same felons. The Muslim [sic] have
been shackled by such treaties of the
disbelievers (kuffar) whereby they
cannot enslave anyone in the event of a
war. Muslims have been denied a great
boon whereby every home could have had a
slave. May Allah grant the Muslims the
ability to escape the tentacles of the
enemy, remain steadfast upon the Din
(religion) and engage in Jihad (religion
war) according to the injunctions of
Filipinos is alive and well in Saudi Arabia and maybe even in their
diplomatic compound in the U.S.
Serge Trifkovic in his
excellent book The Sword of the
Prophet writes that the Spanish and Portuguese originally purchased black African
slaves for their American colonies from Arab dealers. As mentioned before Arabs collected
slaves for themselves as well. Trifkovic writes:
Every year, for about 600
years, the Nubian kingdom was forced to send a tribute of slaves to the Muslim rulers in
Muslims wanted castrated slaves
because of their harems. As a result the slave dealers would castrate their African
captives. The method of castration was gruesome and many slaves died as a result.
Murray Gordon estimates that only 1 out of 10 castrated slaves survived.
Susan Stephan wrote that:
The taking of
slaves – in razzias, or raids, on peaceful African villages – also had a
high casualty rate. Gordon notes that the typical practice was to conduct a
pre-dawn raid on an unsuspecting village and kill off as many of the men and
older women as possible. Young women and children were then abducted as the
preferred “booty” for the raiders.
Young women were targeted because of their value as concubines or sex slaves
in markets. “The most common and enduring purpose for acquiring slaves in
the Arab world was to exploit them for sexual purposes,” writes Gordon.
“These women were nothing less than sexual objects who, with some
limitations, were expected to make themselves available to their owners.
Islamic law, as already noted, catered to the sexual interests of a man by
allowing him to take as many as four wives at one time and to have as many
concubines as his purse allowed.” Young women and girls were often
“inspected” before purchase in private areas of the slave market by the
Arabs have slaves today.
the Anti-Slavery Society's
findings (1982) and those of Africa Watch (1990) point to the existence of at least
100,000 "full-time" slaves and additional 300,000 half-slaves all of them black,
still being held by Arab Mauritanians... Even the old Arab practice of forming slave
armies is being revived in Mauritanian, where thousands of Haratines were forcibly
recruited, armed and sent to take over black African villages in the south, where they
massacred the inhabitants.

Alyssa Lapen, wrote a
review of Francis Bok's book Escape
from Slavery: The true story of my ten years in captivityand my journey to freedom
in America, in frontpagemag.com 10/17/03.
The cruelty that Francis Bok experienced at age seven defies civilized
human conception. One day in 1986, his mother Marial sent him to Nyamlells market
from their Southern Sudan Dinka village of Gourion to sell eggs and peanuts. That day, the Catholic boy
nicknamed Piol, for rain, lost his childhood and world to the murahaliin. After torching
the nearby villages and slaying their inhabitants, 20 light-skinned Juur horsemen charged
into Nyamlell. They severed the heads of all Dinka men with single sword strokes, left
them rolling in the blood-soaked market dust and stole off Piols older friends Abuk,
Kwol and Nyabol in different directions. A rifleman permanently silenced a crying girl
with a bullet to her head. A swordsman more mercifully sliced off her
sisters leg at the thigh like the branch of a small tree. Francis tried to flee.
Terror squelched his cries. He was halted at gunpoint, grabbed and slung astride a small
saddle, crafted specifically to carry abducted children, and ridden far north...
was beaten, forced to tend and sleep with animals, fed rotting meat, and cursed as a
jedutmaggoteven after his master pressed a Muslim name and prayers upon him.
Abdul Rahman ironically means servant of the compassionate one. But there was
not one second of compassion during Boks 10 years of captivity, although he was one
of the lucky ones. He many times tried to escape, and failed. His penalties were mere
beatings. Other Dinka escapees routinely lost their limbs when recaptured. Giemma Abdullah
threatened the same; Bok didnt believe him, until he saw other Dinkas, limbless.
Finally, at 17, Francis Bok took the cows one morning, and from the road near their
grazing area ran all the way to Mutari. After further privations and imprisonments, Bok
finally hid in a truck en route to ed-Daein, fled to Khartoum, to Cairo, and as a
refugee, in 1999, to the U.S. He landed in the U.S. poor, illiterate, and 20...
grotesque privations sound highly unusual, perhaps even unique. In reality, however,
Boks experience precisely tracked that of oppressed non-Muslim peoples throughout 13
centuries of Islamic history, according to pre-eminent Islamic scholar Bat Yeor.
Non-Muslim peoples like the Dinka, conquered by Islamic Jihad, were soon rendered
inferior, subjected to slavery,
mass deportations, and forced conversions like those suffered by two million Dinka
around Nyamlell and throughout Southern Sudan.
Islamic system of enslavement was by no means limited to Greece. Bat Yeor tells us,
eyewitness accounts over the centuries and from several regions mirror [current]
. Even at the end of the 19th century, constant Jihad in the Sudan
is strikingly similar to accounts from the Jacobite, Armenian, and Greek chronicles of the
early Middle Ages and later periods. ...
captured and enslaved probably millions of children -- under the Seljuks and Ottomans,
over 500 years, in Greece, Serbia, North Africa, India and over 1,400 years of Islamic
history wherever Islam reigned.
Greek priest, Isidore Glabas described, the Ottoman system of enslaving non-Muslim
What would a man not suffer were he to see a child, whom he had
begotten and raised
carried off by the hands of foreigners, suddenly and by force,
and forced to change over to alien customs, and to become a vessel of barbaric garb,
speech, and piety and other contaminations, all in a moment?
Shall he lament his
son because a free child becomes a slave, because being nobly born he is forced to adopt
barbaric customs? Because he who is rendered so mild by motherly and fatherly hands is
about to be filled with barbaric cruelty? Because he who attended matins in the churches
and frequented the sacred teachers is now, alas, taught to pass the night in murdering his
own people, and in other such things?...
Lapen quotes a Drina passage:
It was already the sixth year since the last
collection of this tribute of blood, and so this time the choice had been easy and rich;
The necessary number of healthy, bright and good looking lads between ten and fifteen
years old had been found without difficulty, even though many parents had hidden their
children in the forest, taught them how to appear half-witted, clothed them in rags and
let them get filthy, to avoid the agas choice. Some went so far as to maim their own
children, cutting off one of their fingers with an ax
.A little way behind the last
horses in that strange convoy straggled, disheveled and exhausted, many parents and
relatives of those children who were being carried away forever to a foreign world, where
they would be circumcised, become Turkish, and forgetting their faith, their country and
their origin, would pass their lives in the ranks of the janissaries or in some other,
higher, service of the Empire. They were for the most part women, mothers, grandmothers
and sisters of the stolen children. When they came too close, the agas horsemen
would drive them away with whips, urging their horses at them with loud cries to
.. The mothers were especially persistent and hard to restrain. Some would rush
forward not looking where they were going with bare breasts and disheveled hair,
forgetting everything about them, wailing and lamenting as at a burial, while others
almost out of their minds moaned as if their wounds were being torn by birth pangs, and
blinded with tears, ran right onto the horsemens whips and replied to every blow
with the fruitless question: Where are you taking him? Why are you taking him from
Where many went, their
mothers would not like to have known: Throughout Islamic history, boys darkest use
was as eunuchs. Islamic trade in castrated male slaves persisted until Europe pressured
the Ottomans to stop in the 19th century.
writes in the Sword and the Prophet how in Pakistan
girls as young as five are
auctioned off to highest bidders and... women who accuse a man of rape are in turn
condemned to death for adultery.
Pipes wrote an article about how Saudis import slaves into America. (Saudis
Import Slaves Into America, Daniel Pipes Frontpagemagazine 6/14/05)
Isn't it ironic that
black people in America join the very Islam that enslaved them.
