Somebody should remind Van Jones that in the Arabic language, the words for ‘black’ and ‘slave’ are identical. For some reason, even intelligent, highly educated, articulate Black-Americans like Jones seem to be ignorant of what black lives represent throughout most of the Muslim world.
Blacks in America think they have a natural ally with Muslims whom they consider another oppressed minority, mainly because Muslims keeps saying they are. They have no idea that their ancestors’ first slave master were Arab Muslims. The first religion used to justify slavery was ISLAM. John H. Clarke said that blacks need to be black FIRST, then their religion second. So true, because we now see Blacks with Arab Muslim sympathy under the veil of ISLAM. Don’t be fooled. Slavery in the millions in Arab Muslim nations still occurs to this day.

Historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab Muslim slave traders. Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world. Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his 2001 book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million Black people more died en route.
Fontpage Mag reports: The best kept secrets of the Muslim world include large populations of former African slaves in places like Pakistan, Iraq and Turkey. While Africans in Israel are not descended from slaves, Afro-Arabs, Afro-Turks and African-Pakistanis are living reminders of a Muslim slave trade that sometimes still lingers on.
Many black slaves are abducted from Africa, much like that of the Atlantic slave trade. The difference is that Islamic countries have never warred over the moral standing that slavery violates the most basic human rights.
Slavery is an extremely profitable business for Muslims. Whether for sex or labor, slaves are often sold as soon as they hit puberty. Young girls are inspected for beauty, health, and other physical attributes that might contribute well to child-bearing. Young men are deemed fit for physical labor or other chores.
In Saudi Arabia, 10 percent of the population is denied equal rights because of their race, where black men are not allowed to hold many government positions, where black women are put on trial for witchcraft and where the custody of children is granted to the parent with the most “racially superior” bloodline.
The Sudanese genocide was given theological and political force by the attitude that Arabs and Muslims had the natural right to a superior position over African Animists and Christians. And today Omar Hassan al-Bashir, the Butcher of Sudan, continues to enjoy the support of the Muslim world despite being indicted for genocide by the International Criminal Court.
The supporters of the Muslim world’s campaign to displace the indigenous Jewish population of Israel in favor of the Arab colonists and settlers casually accuse Israel of apartheid. But racial Apartheid is very much a reality in the Muslim world. The same Muslim students who show up to denounce Israel as an apartheid state often come from countries where there is true apartheid when it comes to black skin.
The best kept secrets of the Muslim world include large populations of former African slaves in places like Pakistan, Iraq and Turkey. While Africans in Israel are not descended from slaves, Afro-Arabs, Afro-Turks and African-Pakistanis are living reminders of a Muslim slave trade that sometimes still lingers on.
The site of the world’s greatest slave rebellion was in Basra, Iraq, where half-a-million African slaves rose against the might of the Arab Abbasid Empire.
Some may argue that Islamic slavery, like Islamic terrorism, has nothing to do with Islam, and yet the rationale for racial slavery can be found in the Koran and the Hadiths which discuss Mohammed’s trade in black slaves.
The great Muslim historian Ibn Khaldun justified slavery by relegating black people to the rank of animals, writing, “The only people who accept slavery are the Negroes, owing to their low degree of humanity and proximity to the animal stage.”
The oil-rich tyrannies at the heart of the Islamic Gulf are maintained by armies of mainly black slave laborers with few rights. The skyscrapers of Dubai and Doha are built with the blood of thousands of foreign workers who are paid a pittance and are only allowed to leave with the approval of their masters.
Blacks, who make up around 10 percent of the Saudi population, are still viewed as slaves — because the monarchy’s religious tradition still views blacks as slaves. “Arab Muslims s hate black people. And that is not from today, it is in their blood,” a young African man named Aboubakr says. “Blacks have no rights here.”
All Africa reports: Much of North Africa is enslaved by Arab masters, but even those who are free still suffer racial apartheid. Although some Muslim countries have officially outlawed slavery, it is still rampant because Muslim authorities turn a blind eye to it.
When Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and even President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama ramble on about how racism is still aflame, they are pointing the finger in the wrong direction. While America still attempts to apologize and make reparations for decisions made by former generations that no longer exist, millions of Muslims are enslaving blacks as we speak.
Black man confirms that Muslim slave traders are the MAIN reason why black people are in America today.
Only 10% of the slave traders in Africa were white, 90% of them were Muslims and black Africans. He says that blacks joining the Nation of Islam and/or becoming Democrats is the same as being enslaved by Muslims, still the largest group of black slave owners in the world today. The only legacy black Africans have with slavery is directly through Muslims.
