And even today, in many parts of the Muslim world, they still are. Egyptian-German scholar, Hamed Abdel-Samad, points out that there are 29 verses in the Quran that endorse slavery which allowed Muslims to become the world’s leading slavemasters. But unlike Abraham Lincoln, a white man who freed the slaves in America, no Muslim leaders came forth to free their slaves until Western colonialism banned the practice.
Muslim leaders believe that because slavery has always been a part of Islam, Muslims should not try to deny this because when women and children of the enemy are taken as slaves, they are treated well. Best of all, these infidel slaves are forced to convert to Islam which will save them from the hellfire.”
Morocco World News (h/t Marvin W) Hamed Abdel-Samad is an Egyptian-German author and an apostate from Islam. He lives under the constant threat of death, and has to have 24-hour police protection for telling the truth about Islam. He is an author of several books such as “Islamic Fascism.”
Harsh criticism of Islam by ex-Muslims seems to be a growing trend in Germany. In a recent interviewAbdel-Samade said, “If it had been possible to reform Islam, it would have been done centuries ago.” “Islam is an ultra-sacralized entity. Who would dare to reform Allah’s word?
As Islam goes beyond religious belief, it cannot be reformed. “Islam is basically incompatible with secularism. It is a tradition that mixes religion with economy, and politics with militarism. It complicates the relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims. I don’t believe in general salvation.”
In his lectures, interviews and TV appearances in Arabic, German and English, Hamed presents an image of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad as intolerant, extremist, supremacist, misogynist and totally incompatible with democracy and European values.
A death fatwa was issued against him live on a salafist Egyptian TV channel in 2013. In Germany, he has been living under police protection.

The most brutal, inhumane slave masters in history were NOT white men, they were Arab Muslims.
Kidnapped from a refugee camp in Sudan by a Bedouin (Muslim) tribe, a Christian man from the African country of Eritrea tells of being enslaved in Sinai: “In some cases, we were tortured simply because we were Christians.”
CBN He was forced to endure horrible methods like hanging them naked upside down from the ceiling, and being subjected to electric shocks, burning them on their bodies.” Sometimes they were beaten with big bats, all day long for hours.” “There are around 7,000 that went through these torture camps and 4,000 that died.”
