Muslim Racism: Libyan Edition

Occasionally there are articles that tell the truths about the Muslim world that you are not supposed to tell. This article, on the joys of the post-Gaddafi Libya, is one of them.

One of my dearest friends in Tripoli was a woman who had lived in Canada for 20 years before eventually returning to Libya. At the time of the revolution, I had known her for more than two years and had come to count on her loyal friendship and to admire her generosity. She was a devout Muslim who faithfully performed her prayers, fasted during Ramadan, paid zakat (tithe), and gave ungrudgingly to beggars when we encountered them in the street. Yet she was not a fundamentalist. She confided to me that she had once told her husband, “I just want to try wine and see what the big deal is.” She tried it, said “What’s the big deal?” and never drank again. She did not follow her faith out of fear or condemn others for their beliefs. With her, I could even raise questions about the existence of God without any anxiety.

A few months before the revolution erupted, I was having dinner with her and some friends, when they began to talk about managing servants. My friend had an Ethiopian maid, and she said that when she hired the girl, she had set out to treat her like a daughter. She provided room and board and took care of all her needs—but after a few weeks, she began to feel like the girl was taking advantage of the situation. After all that had been done for her, she apparently wasn’t working hard enough. To punish her, my charitable, open-minded, enlightened friend locked the maid in a basement room with no light, no food, and no water for three days.

One friend, who lived in Tripoli’s old city, begged me to help her get a visa to the U.S. “I can’t stand it here anymore. The abeed [“slaves” in Arabic] make the place stink.”

Racism. It’s far more prevalent in the east than it is in the west.

    No problem. They'll be evolving soon while we work on perfecting the world. As long as they don't convert to Christianity, there won't be any problems.

    not so enlightened.

    What is it about racists and complaining that african derived peoples give off an offensive odor?

    Another example of the fact that Islam is a demonic religion. Jesus taught us to LOVE our brothers and sisters(fellow Christians), neighbors(non Christians), and even our ENEMIES! The pervert Mohammed's religion is one of hatred murder slavery terror and death.

    So are you still friends with her?

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    What the in world is a White country? Whites invaded yes INVADED Black and only BLACK countries long ago…like Africa. Pushed Us out of our homes and demolished our neighborhoods. made up only black areas when Africa was an only Black country to begin with. Whites did the same with Mexican aountries and Indian Countries and so forth. The Asian Countries just havn't LET IT HAPPEN. So do
    your research. WE WISH we still had only BLACK countries but there is no such thing because the WHITES invaded them even JAmaica Congo and so fourth. Idiot
