In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in the US about a demand by certain black organizations (like Black Lives Matter) for a financial compensation by the “white” people for slavery…
In the ever-expanding list of oppressed people, there is a group that is anything but, the Muslims. And oh boy did they ever do a long list of things that everyone blames only the “whites” for: Invading other countries, cultural appropriation, genocides and of course, slavery.
…systematic black slavery in the Arab world…lasted for more than 1400 years and did millions of dead.
How is it possible that such a monstrous event happened (and still happens in some parts of Africa) and yet unlike the trans-Atlantic slave trade which has been dissected under every angle possible, it was and largely still is, unknown by the public?
In most Muslim countries where there was a high number of black slaves (like Egypt, Turkey, Iran, India), there are virtually no significant black minorities today.
They make in no way even close to 10 or 15 percent of the population like they do in the US or Brazil. Where have they all gone?
It is estimated…that close to 15 million blacks were taken as slaves in the Arabo-Muslim slave trade when as many as two thirds died or during travel or not long after arrival.
Most of the black Muslims today reside in Africa where they are either slaves who earned their freedom (especially those who were soldiers) blacks who were promised to be freed if they accepted Islam, or descendants of the mix between Arab masters and black sex slave females.
Black communities in Arab speaking countries outside of Africa are virtually inexistent due to the fact that most died in barbaric conditions.
When the white European started the slave trade from Africa in the early 16th century after the discovery of the American continent, they had slave routes already existing, thanks to the hundreds of years of black slave experience of the Arab traders who started the enslavement of Africa as early as the 8th century.
…why the Arabo-Muslim black slave trade, which lasted much longer, had a much wider scope and killed millions of blacks more than its American counterpart is a taboo and is not taught in the West, be it in America or Europe?
The silence on this horrific historical event is downright criminal.
…understand that there is the fear of confronting the Muslim world, knowing that the “religion of peace” is usually very violent in its responses…
