The Dark World of the Arab Child Slave Trade


In a story last week in the British newspaper The Sun, a private investigator stated that Madeleine McCann, the subject of probably the world’s most famous unsolved kidnapping case, is in the United States. The British girl was three years old when she went missing five years ago from a seaside resort in Portugal, where her parents were vacationing. The Portuguese police, in what has been termed a “bungled investigation,” at first accused the parents of the abduction but later cleared them. Portuguese security officials halted their investigation to find the missing child in 2008 after stating she had probably been “stolen to order.”

Since her disappearance, numerous alleged sightings have been made of the little girl across Europe, Africa, in North America and in Australia. The investigator making the latest claim concerning McCann’s whereabouts is an amateur sleuth originally from Angola. He told The Sun that a Portuguese pedophile ring, also responsible for other child abductions, took the McCann girl and has handed his findings over to authorities. The claim that a pedophile ring is responsible for McCann’s disappearance has been made before, especially concerning one in Belgium. And while Madeleine McCann girl may have very well been snatched by such evil hands, it is surprising that an equally depraved institution — one of gigantic size — has never even been considered by investigators or the media as McCann’s possible kidnapper: namely, the Arab child slave trade.

While tens of thousands of adults are also victims of Arab slavers, many people only first took notice of the Arab slave trade in children when reports of enslaved child camel jockeys emerged from Persian Gulf countries. A 2004 HBO documentary on the subject was especially responsible for making Americans aware of this modern-day barbarism. These boys, who were sold by poor parents hoping their offspring would some day experience a better life, were primarily from South Asia. But instead of a life of dignity and meaningful work, they wound up in the Middle East where they were made to race camels for their Arab masters. Beaten and often sexually abused, they were all kept undernourished, so that the camels would have less weight to carry.

“As many as 6,000 child camel jockeys…languished in hidden slavery on ozbah farms, where their masters beat them and starved them to keep their weight down,” wrote E. Benjamin Skinner in his book, A Crime So Monstrous.

When investigating in the 1990s the enslavement of hundreds of thousands of black Africans in Mauritania by Arab-Berber masters, African-American author Samuel Cotton was stunned to discover that African children were still being kidnapped by Arabs traveling with camels carrying big baskets. The child, usually playing alone, would suddenly be snatched from its play and placed in one such basket, after which its new owners hurried away. The children, he was told, are sometimes found later “hundreds of miles away as slaves.”

Also during his investigation, which was summarized in his highly informative book Silent Terror: A Journey Into Contemporary African Slavery, Cotton was told there was “still a huge trafficking in slaves going on between Mauritania and the United Arab Emirates.”

Black African children are also not always stolen so surreptitiously. Until recently in the southern Sudan, the old-fashioned slave raid witnessed villages being burned down, the men killed and the women and children captured. This was the Arab slavers’ main harvesting tool of humans. Thousands of children were captured by this murderous method and forcibly taken as agricultural, domestic and sex slaves to Arab northern Sudan — where many still languish today. Darfur has also seen many children disappear  from both refugee camps and towns subjected to central government attack. They are suspected victims of Arab slave hunters.

But it is not only non-Arab children who are Arab child slave trade victims. An Egyptian newspaper, referring to a 2008 UNICEF report, stated Egyptian children are being bought and sold for about $3,000 for “domestic work and farming, among other things.” This trade in children is so extensive in Egypt, organizations are “employing brokers, and even operating their own web sites.

“Many are also sent to the Gulf States, with orphanages being a major supplier,” the story further reports.

Even from a country as far way as the Philippines children are trafficked to the Middle East. In 2008, for example, 34 minors between the ages of 14 and 16 were rescued at Manila airport by social workers as they were about to depart on fake passports for unnamed Middle Eastern countries. Again, war and poverty played a role in these young people’s desperation. They were from refugees camps in the war-torn southern island of Mindanao where an insurgency is raging between government forces and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

While most civilized people nowadays recoil in horror from the idea of slavery, especially when it involves children, many fundamentalist Middle Eastern Muslims do not. In fact, they view the psychological death and destruction of innocent lives as their legal right. Under sharia law, which rules the Sudan and the Gulf States, Muslims are legally allowed to own slaves. Bernard Lewis, the eminent scholar of Islam, writes “…the institution of slavery is not only recognized but is elaborately regulated by Sharia law.” Another reason for this inhuman sense of entitlement is the prophet Muhammad was also a slave owner, setting the example for the fundamentalists.

Besides a codified religious supremacy, there is also the element of racial superiority behind the hideous practice of Arab slavery, especially when it concerns black Africans. Arab racism is at the roots of Islamic slavery that has seen 14 million black Africans enslaved and sold around the Islamic world from the seventh to the twentieth century.

Unfortunately for its victims, the abolition of Arab slavery will be difficult to even initiate — especially when the international community remains deafeningly silent about it. The case of Dr. Abu Zayd, a Cairo University professor and Islamic theologian, amply illustrates the problem.  When Zayd contended that “keeping slave girls and taxing non-Muslims” was contrary to Islam, an Egyptian sharia court forcibly divorced him from his wife and declared him an apostate. He later had to flee to Europe to escape Islamic extremists who wanted to kill him because of his apostate status.

Slavery was only abolished in Saudi Arabia and other states of the Arabian Peninsula in the early 1960s, so one cannot expect an institution that has existed for centuries to being away any time soon. For example, the widow of the emir of Abu Dhabi and her four daughters were caught living in Brussels in 2008 with 20 slaves who they were mistreating. And Dubai is the center for the region’s sex industry that Skinner calls “a place of slavery for women.” Promised jobs, thousands of women full of hope arrive there from Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia annually only to have their passports taken away immediately upon arrival and to be forced into prostitution.

One Gulf State Arab woman, a former candidate for Kuwait’s parliament, does not even hide the fact there should be sex slaves for Arab men and claims sheikhs and muftis she spoke with in Mecca sanctioned this. As a result, Salwa al-Mutairi wants non-Muslim women captured in war made available to Muslim men, so that the men can be “protected from adultery.” She affirmed: “For example, in the Chechnya war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait…I don’t see any problem in this.”

Al-Mutairi’s despicable utterances came only a week after a Muslim preacher announced that, since Islam allows Muslims to buy and sell conquered infidel women, “When I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”

It is not the purpose or intent of this article to engage in sensationalist or unfounded finger-pointing. But what a crime it would be to neglect finding and freeing a child slave because the hunt for his or her captors would be deemed politically incorrect. Indeed, in light of the widespread phenomenon discussed above, why is the possibility of Madeleine McCann being a child slave somewhere in the Middle East not even remotely considered in the investigation of her disappearance? Yes, it is only conjecture, but so is looking into all the other possibilities. Why, for instance, is publicly hypothesizing that she is probably somewhere in the U.S. considered legitimate, but even breathing a word about the possibility of her being somewhere in the Middle East considered illegitimate — when it is a fact that an international Arab human-slave trafficking business is in full effect?

The fact that the McCanns were at a Portuguese seaside resort when Madeleine was taken made the kidnappers’ task easier. Since the child-snatchers may have very well made their escape by sea, there would be no borders to cross until they reached their destination — potentially a Middle Eastern one. The Islamic world, after all, is very close to Portugal.

The British government has recently assigned 30 detectives in a major effort to locate the missing girl. Of course, myriad evils could be behind this tragic crime. And they must all be looked into. But in light of what is known about the Arab child slave trade, will investigators spend even at least a modicum of time considering the distinct possibility of Middle Eastern sex-slave traffickers’ involvement? The empirical reality would justify it — as it would justify the international community starting to be even slightly interested in, and outraged about, this dark and evil phenomenon in general.

  • Sasha

    As much as my heart goes out to these children (and adults) there is nothing in the article to suggest these traders would go out of their way (or ‘norm’) to abduct an English 3 year old from her bed on a holiday resort. Besides the fact that she would be too young to jockey camels or be of any use to those behind this horrid trade, why risk entering a holiday resort when there are easier ways (as the article proves…all children of which are older than 3yrs of age) of taking children?

    “Portuguese security officials halted their investigation to find the missing child in 2008 after stating she had probably been “stolen to order.” – This statement is not true and is most certainly misleading.

    It may be worthwhile investigating the possible death of Madeleine … I feel the answers are more likely to be found there than an abduction.

    • davarino

      Nice conjecture. I am sure all angles are being investigated. Still, it would be nice to shine the light of day on this evil practice. Its amazing how the left can be so ensenced by trivial things and unmoved when confronted by pure evil

    • cao2

      I wasn't aware that there were requirements for the children that are brought into prostitution and/or pedophile rings. Islam is a different world; it is a complete socio economic and legal system; when you are allowed to marry a child as young as 6 (like the prophet Mohammed) and adoption is not practiced at all, it makes one wonder. Arabs fantasize about raping infidel women, I am certain that children that look like Maddy are in high demand for that reason…and so I don't see how Madeline is too young for the disgusting Arab sex with children nonsense that is practiced and widespread in the Arab world.

    • tagalog

      What makes you think that a 3-year-old little girl is too young to be a sex slave?

      Spend a little time talking about children and sexual abuse in the United States with a Child Protective Services Social Services caseworker in your area. Or have a conversation with a lawyer who works in the court system as a guardian ad litem or next friend for children.

      If they do it in America (and they do), they CERTAINLY do it in the Muslim world, where the culture there tolerates it far more than the culture here does.

    • Jes

      Hi Sasha, you are sweetly innocent. A pretty white skinned 3 year old child is worth a fortune to a Muslim paedophile. You are talking about a very sought after delicacy and valuable commodity.

    • Abbie

      Female children can be touched sexually from their first day of life in Islam. Aisha was only 7 when Mohammed took her from the swings at her house to have her live with him and at the age of 9 she was raped by Mohammed.

      A white three year old is a great sex object and they will indoctrinate her and teach her how to be a good slave and serve her Muslim masters.

      LMFAO, MSM omits, lies and distorts to suit its agenda. Try reading Arab media for insight. Indeed, it will reveal that slavery is Sharia compliant.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      I don't believe any of this. It's not on the news. Why not? It's Arab-blod Libel.

      Actually, to a certain extent you are right, as the writer of this piece is being intentionally deceptive and very racist at the same time since being Arab has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with the international slave trade other than a lot of Arabs happen to also be Muslims. Hence, in a sense it is a blood libel against all Arabs since it is a Muslim practice, as Islam sanctions slavery and Sharia regulates it.

      Indeed, Islam divides the world between believers and unbelievers and then applies one set of rules and ethics for believers and a completely different set of rules and ethics for unbelievers. Hence, the reason that slavery is sanctioned by Sharia is because all unbelievers per the dictates of Islam are subhumans. Hence, owning slaves to Muslims is no different that owning pack animals.

      It is also the reason why non-Muslim unbelievers living in every Muslim majority country in the world today without exception are violently oppressed and systematically persecuted when not outright slaughtered altogether.

      Of course, none of this is ever reported on the news, as to do so would be politically incorrect and Islamophobic according to the dictums of political correctness.

            Anyone who can’t even spell the word ignoramus is obviously an ignoramus, and I hate to rain on your unhinged parade, but the boundaries of racism have been expanded today to include smearing other groups of people such as Arabs.

          • coyote3

            Bravo Sierra, just plain incorrect. They can "smear" whomever they wish, but race is determined by science, not popular culture. There are only three races, Caucasian, Mongolian, and Negro. So, they may be "smearing" a group, but it is not "racist", because it can't be, it has nothing to do with race. Anyone who makes up races, has to be a pendejo, and that is spelled correctly.

    • Jes

      Now believe this. It's written in the quran and hadiths:

      Q: what is a muslim marriage?

      A: A marriage contract gives a muslim man the right to enjoy the woman's private parts. ~Mohammed (Bukhari 7:81)

      Allah authorizes wife-beating(Quran 4:34), rape & divorce baby girls(Quran 65:4).

      Q: was Mohammed a pedophile?

      A: Aisha, the child bride of Mohammed, said: "The [54-year-old] Apostle of Allah had intercourse with me when I was 9 years old." (Abu Dawud, V2, #2116; Tabari, V7, P7; V9, P131; Sahih Muslim V2, #3309)

    This article is not only libelous, it's totally untrue that Maddie was abducted, there is not one shred of evidence but plenty to indicate a death in the McCanns' holiday apartment. As a death had never occurred there previously I'm sure the Portuguese police were looking at the right scenario.

    There are children snatched and stolen for the slave trade and sex which is truly horrendous. This is where money should be spent, not on more detective. The Mcacnns have burned through nearly £3 million pounds and not one piece of information has come to light to find Maddie and it won't. Now we here the UK taxpayer is to fund another investigation to the tune of further millions.

  • Tanstaafl

    Slavery is halal (permitted) in Islam.

    If you are a black American, your ancestors were taken as slaves by Arab slave traders and marched to the east coast of Africa, where they were sold to the Europeans.

    • coyote3

      The Europeans sometimes did it themselves, but most often it was the "Arabs" doing the grunt work, or quite often it was blacks themselves. Tribes often preyed on one another, and took members of another tribe as slaves themselves, or to be sold to someone else. Even the Indians of the western hemisphere were famous for preying on different tribes and inslaving them. After the Spanish arrived, and later the Mexicans, slavery of Indians was elevated to almost an art form, at least for those Indians that they didn't butcher. As distasteful as it is, this is no revelation.

    Tanstaafl that is correct, any Kafar (Muslim for "Non-Muslim") is subject to anything a Musselmen wants to do, i.e. Murder, rape, enslave, pillage, anything! Did you know that Europeans were also enslaved en mass by Muslims? yes ole Whitey was regularly enslaved and depending on which accounts you read European women were often prized catches, there is a very big history of Muslims going as far north as England prior to the 18th century, often raiding entire towns taking everything and killing what they couldn’t take, the first American war was against Muslim slavery, it is proudly part of the Marine Corp Hymn! it was their blood passage!

      Christianity does not condone slavery. Read the New Testament. for a change, rather than the Old.

      Besides, how many Christians openly practice and/or advocate slavery nowadays?

      Nobody who uses a ridiculous term like "Islamophobic" deserves to be taken seriously, anyway. Especially when their screen name is that of a racist advocate of eugenics.

      Only someone utterly ignorant of the dictates of Islam and of the long violent and bloody history of Islam could make such a completely unhinged statement. I hate to rain on MargaretSanger’s mentally incompetent parade, but it can only be bigoted if it is untrue. Nevertheless, the fact that the international slave trade is a product of Islam is indisputable.

      Not only that but the term Islamophobia was coined by deceptive Muslims exactly to prevent the close scrutiny of Islam, and indeed that tactic works beautifully with self-hating delusional leftists. Thank God the right isn’t nearly so unhinged.

    • Mark

      The slavery written of in the old testament was not the kind of slavery discussed in this article. The so called "slaves" of the old testament held by the Hebrews were actually more akin to indentured servants–people who owed debts and volunteered to work of their debts or who did not have the means to support themselves (and their families) and so bound themselves (often for a lifetime) to a family where they could work and so earn a living capable of sustaining their families. Also, according to The Law, all "slaves" re: servants were to be freed every 7 years.

      So, Margaret Sanger (your namesake by the way was a white supremacist who supported eugenics programs against people of color proposing abortion clinics and OTC abortifciants so that non-whites could be easily aborted and hence their populations controlled), "X-Tianity" as you call it actually did not condone slavery .Although admittedly Jesus did tell believers to embrace their lives whatever role they had as this world was short lived and those who accepted him as their savior would be with him in paradise forever, he was speaking of servants and not slaves and did not condone "slavery" re-forced submission but was speaking to those who voluntarily submitted to servitude to pay a debt or to seek subsistence….
      In conclusion, if you're going to make an assertion, please provide evidence that can withstand scrutiny.

    The African slave trade was conducted almost entirely by Arab Muslim slave traders. They captured the slaves and traded them to Western merchants on the West coast of Africa. E.g., the area around what is now Ivory Coast. The Westerners COULD NOT SAFELY GO INLAND because they were helpless against Malaria and multiple other diseases to which the African natives had some immunity. Only at the tail end of the journey, when the slaves were put on the ships to the New World, were whites involved at all.

    Uhm…I hate to inform the moronic writer of this lame ass article that being Arab has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with the international slave trade. Indeed, Christian and Druze Arabs do not participate in the slave trade, as it is only Muslims who do. So why smear all Arabs as being culpable for the slave trade with your unhinged racism and intentionally mislead your readers at the same time? Obviously, it is because it is politically incorrect to call it what it really is – the international Islamic slave trade – and because like a coward who fears the tyranny of the left, you also comply with their politically correct dictums or else. Nevertheless, irrespective of your lame ass political correctness, being Arab has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with the slave trade, but, on the other hand, Islam and Muslims have everything to do with the slave trade since slavery is sanctioned by Islam and governed by Sharia.

    Indeed, Islam divides the world between believers and unbelievers and then applies one set of rules and ethics for believers and a completely different set of rules and ethics for unbelievers. Hence, the reason that slavery is sanctioned by Sharia is because all unbelievers per the dictates of Islam are subhumans. Hence, owning slaves to Muslims is no different than owning pack animals.

    It is also the reason why non-Muslim unbelievers living in every Muslim majority country in the world today without exception are violently oppressed and systematically persecuted when not outright slaughtered altogether.

    Political correctness is also the reason why you cowardly loons call the permanent genocidal jihad of conquest being waged against Israel perpetually an Arab – Israeli Conflict, even though Christian Arabs and Druze Arabs aren’t waging jihad against Israelis, as being Arab has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with the jihad being waged against Israel except for the fact that a lot of Arabs are also Muslims.

    In fact, Israel’s biggest nemesis today, Iran, is a country largely comprised of Persians and not Arabs. Yet, you mentally incompetent loons nonetheless ignore that fact and still go on falsely labeling the jihad being waged against Israel as a conflict between Arabs and Israel and misleading millions of people at the same time. Meanwhile, I’m wondering how you gutless loons can look at yourself in the mirror.

    When Zayd contended that “keeping slave girls and taxing non-Muslims” was contrary to Islam, an Egyptian sharia court forcibly divorced him from his wife and declared him an apostate. He later had to flee to Europe to escape Islamic extremists who wanted to kill him because of his apostate status.

    Extremists? Yeah right…here is another way you intentionally deceptive moronic writers deliberately attempt to mislead your readers. If 84 percent of Egyptians believe that Muslims who leave Islam should be executed, how can you claim it was extremists that wanted to kill him? Indeed, if 84 percent of Egyptians believe that Muslims who leave Islam should be executed, then obviously the practice of killing Muslims who leave Islam is mainstream in Egypt and not extreme. No wonder most Americans including most Republicans are so oblivious with respect to Islam, it is because they are continuously bombarded with false propaganda in deference to Islam and political correctness even in the conservative media.

    Indeed, in light of the widespread phenomenon discussed above, why is the possibility of Madeleine McCann being a child slave somewhere in the Middle East not even remotely considered in the investigation of her disappearance? Yes, it is only conjecture, but so is looking into all the other possibilities. Why, for instance, is publicly hypothesizing that she is probably somewhere in the U.S. considered legitimate, but even breathing a word about the possibility of her being somewhere in the Middle East considered illegitimate — when it is a fact that an international Arab human-slave trafficking business is in full effect?

    How ironic, even while you complain about the dictums of political correctness to pretend to be conservative and feign false outrage, you nonetheless comply with those dictums as like a racist you call it an “Arab human slave trafficking business” when in reality it really is an “Islamic human slave trafficking business.” In fact, it just doesn’t get any more absurd or unhinged than that! Indeed, it’s a good thing I’m not your editor.

    • Liz

      The point you miss is that Islam is ethnocentric to Arab culture–the language of the Quran is classical Arabic,hence being nearer to Allah requires all muslims to be versed in Arabic and not Persian or Urdu–socially racism was practised from the time of Muhammed who was an Arab,so if Arab is a euphenism for Islam so what? It is indeed quite accurate to place the Arabs at the original centre of this dispicable trade along with all the collaborators-and it is not racist to point this out!

    • eMuse5

      So you strongly object to the idea that the writer might be indicting Arabs for the child slave trade, but also strongly object to him not placing all blame on Islam? In my mind, the majority of people in Arab countries are Muslim, so isn't that what Brown is doing anyway?

      Maybe I'm just a bit confused by your comment and need clarification, but you do know that you and he are on the same side…right?

      • ObamaYoMoma

        There is no need to paint with such a broad brush in order to condemn and smear all Arabs with the child slave trade, as other than a lot of Arabs happen to be Muslims, being an Arab has nothing whatsoever to do with the child slave trade, as the slave trade is a product of Islam and as such it encompasses not just Arabs, but Muslims of all stripes in general.

        Now with respect to Islam, you may say that I’m also painting with too broad of a brush. However, because Islam is an ideology that requires total and complete submission to the will of Allah where blasphemy, apostasy, and publicly criticizing Islam are capital offenses, in the eyes of devout Muslims, a Muslim is either the devout slave of Allah or otherwise a blasphemous apostate, and if it is the latter, then that person must be executed per the dictates of Islam. Hence, if a Muslim disagrees with the institution of slavery, then that Muslim is guilty of blasphemy, which means that Muslim isn’t really a Muslim at all but instead an apostate that must be executed. Hey…don’t blame me; I didn’t invent these rules.

        Anyway, because the writer of this article is cowed by the tyranny of the left and as a result strictly adheres to the tenets of political correctness, instead of laying the blame for the child slave trade on Islam where it supposed to be, in deference to political correctness he instead misleads the readers by stating that the child slave trade is the product of Arabs, which not only is very misleading because it lets a lot of Muslims and Islam off the hook, but it also smears all Arabs as being slave traders, which in itself is a form of racism since it isn’t true.

        Maybe I'm just a bit confused by your comment and need clarification, but you do know that you and he are on the same side…right?

        The problem is most liberal and conservative Americans today, apparently including you too, are thoroughly confused by Islam exactly because of the very misleading reporting that permeates our society, which is a direct result of political correctness. I can understand the very misleading reporting of the lamestream press because it has been hijacked and dominated by the left, but what I can’t understand is the same political correct and very misleading reporting that is also permeating throughout the conservative press as well. Indeed, if the conservative press is also very misleading in deference to political correctness, then what is the difference between the lamestream press and the conservative press? The answer, of course, is they are both lamestream. What ever happened to reporting the unvarnished truth and letting the chips fall where they may?

        In any event, the writer and I may be on the same side; nevertheless, at the same time he is still a very misleading political correct loon and there should be no place for such writers especially in the conservative press. Furthermore, we have been involved in two very fantasy based nation-building missions in Afghanistan and Iraq that are in reality the two biggest strategic blunders in the history of the USA exactly because they were based off of very misleading political correct myths. Thus, it should be very obvious that even conservatives can also be suckered by political correctness.

    Since historically Muslims have been leaders in inslaving non Muslims, and today's slave trade is almost esclusively a Muslim preoccupation, and since black Africans are the prime victims, why are so many black people, and especiallyeducated black Americans attracted to Islam? You would think that they would be rabidly opposed to a religion that advocates enslaving them and their relatives. Surely they aren't dumb enough to think that by becoming Muslims they will eventually reach the place where they will become slave owners themselves. Remember, not long ago, the Arab Muslims in northern Sudan backed the Junjiweed black Muslims to masacree the Black Christians in Southern Sudan, and then the Arab Muslims masacreed the Jungeweed Muslims.

    The reason many thousands of young women are DECEIVED into slavery is because the mainstream media, schools, colleges and universities do not warn that it is a part of Islam to abduct non-Muslims for slaves. The media, schools, colleges and universities, etc. have a MORAL responsibility to warn of this horror every single day. By proclaiming this truth daily, the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent young women, thus warned, would be saved from utter destruction, degradation and a lifetime of pure hell.

    By their sinful, wicked silence; the media, schools, colleges and universities have great guilt.

    Silence is consent.

      Well if this is going on "annually", and I don't doubt that it is, wouldn't they have kinda figured out what was going on by now.

    The terrible results of taking in huge numbers of devout Muslim immigrants:

    A nation's leadership that refuses to protect its own children is a nation that cannot survive.

    Horrifying and Evil. The utter horror of kidnapped Christian children. Their lives forever destroyed by cruel Islamo Fascists who are determined to make the children exactly like they are:

    Quran School: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jwii8QihT0&fe
    Who will rescue the children?

    It is war. A war that has been going on for 1,400 years. Founder of Islam, huge slave trader, Mohammad, murdered/beheaded 700 Jewish men because of the Jews' love for, and allegiance to G-D. The Jews refused to follow another god and the new religion of Mohammad. The Jews' wives and children were seized for slaves to lives of living hell.

    WAR! WAR! WAR! like it our not "bad things happen when good people do nothing" So of course Islam has declared war 9(in every way, shape, and form) on the rest of the world. Now we need to go on offense and take them down. Sometimes war is the lesser of two evils. We must fight Islam and fight the fifth column fools in our midst whose leftest ideology has led to so many of these problems.

    The Muslim slave-trade in sub-Saharan Africa has gone on for nearly 1400 years, and takes boys, girls and women mostly, dragging them north in chains for primarily sexual abuse and laboring. Grown male slaves are less desired, given the primarily rapine nature of the Muslim slavers and their customers.

    For 250 years, Muslim Barbary pirates raided the shores of Europe as far afield as Iceland, looking for white slaves, kidnapping two million of them, until they were finally destroyed in the early 1800s. This mindset hasn't gone away. It is still around and flourishing.

    Evil all evil and LindaRivera siad it all. IF THIS IS HAPPENING ASK HOW MANY Americans have been enslaved?

  • Mark

    What about Natalie Hollaway? I'm fairly convinced that slavery was her fate as no body has ever been produced and the media is strangely silent on any info gained from Van Der Sloot!

    One might get the idea Islamists are bat rastids and in need of eradication __from the world of humans. They look like people but when observing them__for awhile the subhuman aspects of their existnce become obvious through__the evil, demonic, blood lusting hate engendered by all that is fallen in__human life, collectively as low as you go. We can thank our insane greenies__for the destruction of our oil industry, making us dependent on foreign oil__for energy and sending untold fortunes in our wealth to build their evil empires.__In the end we allow leftists to destroy our society, our nation and we get__to pay for it through a slave trading, pedophile, murdering gang of sewer slugs.__How absolutely horrid. I think it is time to figh back and take the gloves off.

    Consider how our government today is making slaves of all of us, ordering us
    to do their will in all things and freedom exists only to the extent that you
    have money, money the last bastion of freedom in America and look what
    Obama and the criminal government are doing with it, burying us and our
    freedom in debt beyone imagination……………………..William

  • mad_mad_world

    Any heinous act that the vile and disgusting moe-ham-mad did in his time is openly supported and promoted by the teachings of islam. After all, he was the founder of this demonic cult and it is his legacy. He had slaves so no matter how horrendous it is to us of the Judeo/Christian heritage or any other religion (or atheists for that matter) except islam, the muslims are allowed to have slaves too…pure and simple. This islamic cult is evil to the core its treachery to mankind knows no bounds. It must be disbanded and the islamist terrorists among its muslim followers must be eradicated like the vermin they are.

    Let's get this straight. I could care less about what you do or say about a bunch of sand negroes, boy. You made statement that was just plain false. They are not a a "race", If you are going to call someone "racist", boy, you better learn what is a race.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Okay…it’s pretty damn obvious what your problem is now. You are a racist but you are a racist in denial. Therefore, according to your narrow interpretation of racism, your above comment doesn’t constitute racism, because what you refer to as being “sand negroes” isn’t a race. Anyway, I hate to rain on your clueless and racist parade, but Muslims constitute all races and nationalities. Nevertheless, it couldn't be more obvious that you are indeed a racist.

      • coyote3

        You can't be a racist unless the target is a race. Arabs are not a race. Science "classifies" races, and there only three above mentioned. If that is "racism" then this hispanic resembles that. You are just embarrassed, because of your lack of education, and it showed when you used the term "racism" when there was no racism involved. I am well aware that Moslems come in all three races, just like hispanics come in all races. I could care less if you light up every Moslem in the world, regardless of race. My preference would be special attention to Iran, but that is because they invaded the U.S. Make a class table top from the sea up to India, and beyond, if need be.

    THE PROPHET MOHAMMED HAD LOTS OF SLAVES!

    SLAVERY IS A DOCTRINE OF ISLAM!

    THE PERFECT MUSLIM

    And surely thou hast sublime morals

    (Surat Al-Qalam 68:4).

    Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar

    (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:21).

    Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly.

    The Names of Muhammad’s Slaves

    (A) Male Slaves:

    Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya relies always on
    the prophet’s biographies written by great ancient scholars. Therefore, he is
    regarded by Muslims as an authority, a primary source and a leader among the
    students of the Islamic religion. This scholar tells us in his book, “Zad
    al-Ma’ad” (part 1, pp. 114, 115, and 116), the following,

    “These are the names of Muhammad’s male slaves:

    Yakan Abu Sharh, Aflah, ‘Ubayd, Dhakwan, Tahman, Mirwan, Hunayn, Sanad, Fadala Yamamin, Anjasha al-Hadi, Mad’am, Karkara, Abu Rafi’, Thawban, Ab Kabsha, Salih, Rabah, Yara Nubyan, Fadila, Waqid, Mabur, Abu Waqid, Kasam, Abu ‘Ayb, Abu Muwayhiba, Zayd Ibn Haritha, and also a black slave called Mahran, who was re-named (by Muhammad) Safina (`ship’).

    He himself relates his own story; he says:

    “The apostle of God and his companions went on a trip. (When) their belongings became too heavy for them to carry, Muhammad told me, `Spread your garment.’ They filled it with their belongings, then they put it on me. The apostle of God told me, `Carry (it), for you are a ship.’

    ‘ Even if I was carrying the load of six or seven donkeys while we were on a journey, anyone who felt weak would throw his clothes or his shield or his sword on me so I would carry that, a heavy load.
    The prophet told me, `You are a ship”‘ (refer to Ibn Qayyim, pp. 115-116;
    al-Hulya, Vol. 1, p. 369, quoted from Ahmad 5:222).

    When the MCann case was big news a few years ago, it did cross my mind that she may have been snatched by Muslims, but without any evidence I decided to keep this opinion to myself. We still have no evidence so I keep this view very close to my chest, but it’s nice to know that someone else has thought the same.
