The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa
To all you Internet Muslims and LIED TO and confused African-Americans who like to bring up the USA's African slave hx (hx = history), I say this: Compare the USA's short Colonial slave hx to that of the hx of Arabs (Islamic and Pre-Islamic) who colonized North and East Africa, who hunted, enslaved, tortured and killed Ethnic Africans for several thousands of years before the same geographical ARABS started/opened the slave trade to Colonial America who merely (in comparison) bought slaves for servitude.
M.E. Arabs have a history of thousands of years of human slavery, which even continues today in the M.E.'s "MODERN WORLD."
One of the most tragic facts is that MECCA, the geographic heart of the Muslim community, was one of the LARGEST SLAVE MARKETS in the Muslim world all the way up until the 2Oth century when the standards of the international community, championed by the West, came to inform Muslims that chattel slavery is a violation against dignity, humanity and their own standing in global affairs.
Many unsuspecting free people were taken on the pilgrimage by high-ranking Muslims and sold or arrested on trumped up charges, ultimately ending up as victims of the notorious Meccan slave trade. In fact, slaves have been reported as being sold as late as 1960 in Saudi Arabia, and many more cases are reported in Sudan.
So do us all a favor and take THE WHOLE STORY into account before you ever post your blame, blaming Colonial America entirely. THE WHOLE STORY explains WHY, WHEN, WHERE and WHO.
Get it right: Check your facts.
