and the SHAMEFUL LEGACY OF THE MOSLEM ARAB SLAVERS
Blacks don’t want to face the fact that it was a Muslim who rounded up their ancestors in Africa to wholesale to the white slave trader. The Arab is the true master of the African. Blacks can’t accept the common bond they share with whites: that both Europeans and Africans were slaves under Islam. Blacks like to imagine Islam is their counterweight to white power, not that Islam has ruled them for 1400 years.
The believers, meanwhile, are exhorted to “obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you” (v. 59). To obey Muhammad today is, many Islamic authorities say, to obey his dictates in the Hadith, which some contemporary Muslims wish to disregard and say that only the Qur’an has authority. And Muhammad himself is quite clear about the necessity to obey earthly rulers: “You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin."
Much has been written about Islam as a vehicle for Arab supremacism. But even that supremacism that puts Arab above non-Arab Muslim, has its degrees. The blacks of Africa were the staple of the Arab slave trade for a thousand years, while the Atlantic slave trade lasted little more than two centuries. The Arab slave trade was stamped out only by the outside, Christian powers, first by using force. Great Britain through naval power managed in the 19th century to end the Arab slave trade in blacks seized and brought to Arabia, though they did not manage to end the practice of slavery by the Muslim Arabs. The French did the same where their writ ran in North Africa.
Slavery was formally abolished in Saudi Arabia only in 1962, with much protesting and grumbling and, in the case of one Saudi princess, a refusal to comply. And there are many reports of its persistence in Saudi Arabia, including one published just this past week by an Arab from the Maghreb who, in the French press, wrote unequivocally that such slavery still exists in Saudi Arabia, beyond the prying eyes or minds of Westerners.

Thomas Sowell estimates that eleven million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and fourteen million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East.  David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached the plantation, five others died by being killed in the raid or died on the forced march from illness and privation.  So, for 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have the collateral death of about 120 million people. Muslims ran all the wholesale slave trade in Africa. Death toll: 120 million Africans
“We have seen that Negroes are in general characterized by levity, excitability and great emotionalism. They are found eager to dance whenever they hear a melody. They are everywhere described as stupid.” – Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406), “The Muqaddimah,” trans. Franz Rosenthal, (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1967), 63
“Jazz is the favorite music [of America]. It is a type of music invented by [American] Blacks to please their primitive tendencies and desire for noise.” – Sayyid Qutb (1906-1966), cited in John Calvert, “ ‘The World is an Undutiful Boy!’: Sayyid Qutb’s American Experience,” Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, Vol. 11, No. 1 (2000): 99
“The Negro nations are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because (Negroes) have little that is (essentially) human and possess attributes that are quite similar to those of the dumb animals.” – Ibn Khaldun, “The Muqaddimah,” 117
Even in modern times, in Saudi Arabia the homeland of Islam, the common word for "Black" is "Abd" meaning slave
Islam Looks Down on Blacks
Islam is a religion, whose sacred Scriptures contain explicit denigrating remarks about Black people.
Mohammed referred to Blacks as "raisin heads". (Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1, no. 662 and vol. 9, no. 256).
In another Hadith, Mohammed is quoted as saying that Blacks are, "pug-nosed slaves". (Sahih Moslem vol. 9 pages 46 and 47).
Mohammed was not a Black Man
Mohammed was an Asian-Arab. You can't confuse an Asian-Arab with a Black- African. There are numerous evidences that Mohammed was actually white. The space limitation will allow us to mention only a few: In Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1 no. 63, we read "while we were sitting with the Prophet, a man came and said, "who amongst you is Mohammed?" We replied, "this white man reclining on his arm..." In volume 2 Hadith no. 122 refers to Mohammed as a "white person" and in vol. 2 Hadith no. 141 we are told that when Mohammed raised his arms, "the whiteness of his armpits became visible."
My fellow African-American [quoting the author]
Muslims don't care for your skin color, they are only using that to gain control over you. For if Muslims really care for Africans, why are African Muslims kidnapping their African Christian brothers these days in Sudan, butchering the weak and selling the healthy as slaves? (see State Dept. report: News Network International; May 26,1993)
Consider, on the other hand, that Jesus Christ came to give us eternal life, where everybody stands equal in the sight of God. "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus". Galatians 3:28
The difference between Islam and the teachings of Jesus Christ is great. The choice is clear, the choice is yours.
Muhammad Owned and Traded Black Slaves [U Tube]
Islam is more a cult of Mohammad than a religion. Muslims ask WWMD? or What Would Mohammad Do. That Mohammad was an owner and trader in Black Africans, and that Arabic today still refers to them as "Slaves", one can understand why not One Muslim, not One Muslim group, nor One Muslim Country has condemned the genocide of Black Muslims in Darfur. 2.5 Million kicked out of their homes, and...
"I'D STARTED TO BELIEVE that this was how the world was: the Arabs enslaved the blacks.
These could be the words of one of Muhammad's black slaves in Arabia 1300 years ago. But they are in fact the words of a black girl living in slavery in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, just a few years ago. Her name is Mende Nazer and she tells her story in her book Slave.
Mende lived with her family and her tribe in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan until she was twelve. Then one night the Arab raiders, the Mujahidin, came to her village: "I clutched onto my parents' hands and started running, but the raiders were everywhere, dragging people from their huts. There was no Sound of gunfire yet; the raiders were just quietly killing people as if they were animals, with a knife across the throat."
Mende was captured and held under guard in the forest with thirty other children while the raiders continued their plunder through the night. At dawn the raiders began to reassemble in the forest: "all of them were carrying knives. Some had small pistols and others had bigger guns.
Many had blood all up their wrists, others blood smeared around their belts where they carried their daggers. And others had blood all over their loins. They looked crazed with violence and evil." When they had all assembled, the raiders began to chant, "Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!--God is Great! God is Great! God is Great!"
This may strike Western readers as preposterous and outrageous. What kind of men would praise God with the blood of murder and rape still wet on their hands and pants? The answer is, the kind of men who believe that God sanctions such things. And although it seems inconceivable to people whose impression of God has come from Christianity, the God of Islam, Allah, does indeed sanction such things. He sanctions them in the Koran. And more importantly, he sanctions them (via the Hadith) in the example set by his prophet, Muhammad.
What does not fit with Islam, however, is the fact that Mende and her Nuba people were themselves Muslims. The raiders had attacked not an infidel but a Muslim village.
Why are Imazighen (Berber people) included in "Islamic Danger in History?
Today, much of world lumps the Imazighen ("Berbers") with the "Arabs"--Arabic speaking people--of North Africa.
But Berbers are not Arabs, though they may speak Arabic and be Moslem.
The Bebers figure more in the history of North Africa than the Arabs who are relative latecomers and, although the Arabs imposed Islam on the native populations, many Berbers consider them and their arabized deputies to be stifling the native culture that they conquered and are still trying to destroy.

The Amazigh Revival in Morocco __ "After years of repression, the Amazigh movement in Morocco is now going through a very active and decisive stage in the struggle for the recognition of the Moroccan Amazigh identity. More Imazighen are getting organized and involved in their local communities in order to denounce the marginalization of the Amazigh culture and language."

Berbers __ "Berbers are making up a clear majority of the population of North Africa in terms of race and in terms of identity, a considerable minority. The difference between race and identity here is central to understand what being Berber is all about. The influx of Arabs to North Africa, has been far too small up through history to, defend the large numbers of people now claiming to be Arabs. And the influx of other peoples to North Africa has not been of any size since the Vandals in the 5th century." - illustrated - From LexicOrient - http://i-cias.com/e.o/berbers.htm
Berber People __ "These people call themselves Amazigh. "Berber is a name that has been given them by others and which they themselves do not use. Amazigh history in North Africa is extensive and diverse. Their ancient ancestors settled in the area just inland of the Medeterranean Sea to the east of Egypt. Many early Roman, Greek, and Phoenician colonial accounts mention a group of people collectively known as Berbers living in northern Africa."
