Islam from Mohammad to the present has carried out the most massive slave trade that included slaves of all races and creeds in Europe, Africa, India, Balkans, Asia Minor, into Russia and China, SE Asia and across the middle-east. Their slave trade continues. Why are we terrified to tell the truth about Islam and its massive destructive impact everywhere it went in the world!
In Islam, there are few ways to deal with others—kill them, convert them (violence or ‘persuasion’) or enslave them as individual slaves forced into Islam or as abused and extorted Dhimmi populations (communal slaves) also forced into Islam to survive. This is how Islam relates to the rest of the world. Jihad is mandated and the rewards for jihad fighters or raiders are slaves, plunder and paradise. Muslims themselves are ‘slaves of Allah,’ facing death if they dare to leave!
As I quoted in part A, in 2003, Al Fawzan, a member of the Senior Council of Clerics, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body and a member of the Council of Religious Edicts and Research, the Imam of Prince Mitaeb Mosque in Riyadh and a professor at Imam Mohamed Bin Saud Islamic University, whose religious books teach millions of Saudi students and those elsewhere eg US, stated that
"Slavery is a part of Islam,"
“Slavery is part of jihad and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam.”
Muslims who contend Islam is against slavery "are ignorant, not scholars." "They are merely writers," ..."Whoever says such things is an infidel." . (WND 2003)
Those who dare to refuse Islam must be dragged to it in chains-
Bukhari Book 52 fighting for the cause of Allah (jihad)
**Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 254: Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "Allah wonders at those people who will enter Paradise in chains." (ie enslaved and forced into Islam!)
Enslavement under a Muslim is ‘just punishment’ for a non-Muslim and preparation for enslavement AS a Muslim –a slave of Allah. Conquered nations are reduced to dhimmis, communal slaves, who are NOT equal citizens. Such a punishment was referred to as ‘reciprocity’ for not converting by the Sudanese writer Mahmud Muhammad Taha -
“ This is a situation of reciprocity because when this person, while still free, refused to be God’s slave, he was made a slave of another slave of God when he was captured in defeat, ‘for a suitable recompense’ [jaza’an wifaqan].” ( From The Second Message of Islam (Arabic version p.124) cited in Mohamed A. Mahmoud Quest for Divinity A critical examination of the Thought of Mahmud Muhammad Taha (Syracuse: Syracuse University Press, 2007), p 153) (Full quote in part B of the series).
So, the brutality, deprivation, denial of equality and freedom, plus sexual abuse allowed against slaves prepares you to be a slave of Allah?
Islam has absolutely no concept of individual free will to reject Islam, there is no freedom of thought, reason or conscience. Others cannot be regarded as equals or allowed to practise their beliefs or to have no belief in god(s) at all.
The west flagellates itself for its minor, brief and indeed shameful part in the slave trade but fails to note two things—(1) the efforts by the Christian west to stop slavery once and for all-the only culture to do so (for a history of such efforts from the early days of Christianity see part C noting that some 'Christians' were slaves and others slave traders) and (2) the massive, sadistic slave trade of Islam from Mohammad to the present, totally endorsed in Islam’s text and laws (see articles A to L for a short summary of only PART of Islam’s slavery).
Islamic slavery has it all—endorsed by Allah, practiced by slave trading Mohammad who handed girls out to his friends to enjoy and took females himself, and legitimated in text and law. It has people as property that is inherited and traded like animals; the movement of people from their families, homes, cultures even countries; the use of children as sex slaves or trained as killers for Islam; sexual abuse including the legal right to rape pre-pubescent children; physical abuse; denial of equality or legal protection or representation –only Muslim slaves had limited ‘rights’; exploitation and coercion; brainwashing and forced conversion; control of the slaves sexuality and reproduction etc.
Obviously many of these characteristics are found for slaves in general but in Islam, this is enshrined for eternity in allah’s laws—they are not the result of man’s laws or bad practices which can be reformed. And, in Islam, slaves are forced to convert ie they are owned/enslaved in every possible sense of the word.
Ask yourself what happened to the multicultural Jewish, Christian (many varieties), pagans etc that occupied the middle-east? Where are the ancient Jewish and Christian populations of Iraq –well Jews have all been killed or expelled and forbidden from returning and what’s left of the Christians are being religiously ‘cleansed’ as the 1.5 million is now down to a few hundred thousand. Where are the Zoroastrians of Iran—slaughtered, fled? Where are the original Buddhists and Hindus of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives—either already exterminated or their remnants are now being finished off. What about the indigenous Copts of Egypt –those forced to make a living off rubbish and pigs have now been deprived of all their livelihood as Egypt slaughtered all their pigs and let the garbage collection out to outsiders (Lateline, ABC, Australia 19/4/2010); don’t forget the endless violence, the enslavement, rape and forced marriage and conversion of Copt girls... and in Europe, where areas were depopulated and Muslims moved in eg Albania, Bosnia and others converted under constant Islamic attack while yet others fought on for centuries. Where are the Nubian Christian kingdoms? In Africa millions were enslaved, slaughtered, and totally emasculated with the penis and testicles removed unlike ‘white’ slaves who had only their testicles sliced off!
No, people were NOT converted by singing and dancing Sufis or there would have been no need for the endless violent jihad, slavery, pillage and destruction! Jihardi sufis particularly in India have already been noted in the slavery articles but their influence was much wider. In the 1810s Naqshbandiyya Sufism was established in the Caucasus under sheikh Khalid al-Shaharazuri who was strongly antagonistic to “the enemies of religion, the cursed Christians”. Muslims resented the Russian ban on slave trading and raiding as the slave trade in captured Christian Armenians and Georgians was a significant source of income for Muslims. The Russian prohibition violated their Islamic legal rights to enslave non-Muslims (Sookdheo p 194). Sookdheo goes on to discuss the Sufi involvement in violence against non-Muslims and ‘insufficiently Muslim’ rulers, and the close links between pirs (Sufi saints) and the dangerous Deobandi by the early 20th century (Sookdheo p 194-5) The Deobandi reject the west and return to classical Islam . They are militant and connected to the Taliban, al-Queda, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (ibid p 278-9).
Sookdheo also notes the hadith of the greater and lesser jihad –but such hadith(s) are NOT in the most important hadith collections and are poorly attested with a narrator known to have fabricated hadiths (ibid p 193). And such hadiths certainly don’t stop violent jihad (the form given the greatest support and endorsement and viciously practised by Mohammad then others through the centuries), or alter its rewards from Allah.
Everywhere Islam has gone there is jihad, raids and slavery. How many millions upon millions have had their lives destroyed? How many have faced economic and social destruction, starvation and poverty, deportation and slavery, sexual abuse and violence, exploitation and dhimmitude thanks to Islam? How many nations have had their people and material wealth plundered and their intellectual and artistic wealth destroyed or called ‘Islamic’ ?
Muslims burned the royal Zoroastrian library at Ctesiphon following the conquest of Persia...likewise libraries in Damascus (Syria) and Spain. In 1171, Sultan Saladin destroyed the great library of Cairo (Khan p 247) Muslims DID destroy the great library of Alexandra when Caliph Omar conquered Egypt (641) and Khan notes that Theodore Vrettos (2001) claims that Caesar’s soldiers set fire to ships, resulting in the docks and a building with books (mainly account ledgers) being destroyed BUT this wasn’t the Great Library of Alexandria which was further away (see Khan P 247 for detail). The articles on slavery also note the destruction of books after being copied into Arabic and the massive destruction of libraries and learning centres in India and elsewhere. Manuscript translators were non-Muslim (Khan p 187)
This slavery series is the tip of the most horrifying iceberg ---one where most remains hidden and, given the ‘Islamization’ of our universities and media, the appeasement of our governments and the general dhimmitude of the west I don’t hold much hope that the horror of Islam will be revealed – it is as bat Ye’or describes.
Bat Ye’or notes the sheer hypocrisy of the west, its appeasement, its culpability in hiding the slaughter and slavery by Islam going on today eg Sudan where black Christian children are slaughtered, mutilated and forcibly converted to Islam but never have their face in the mass media yet the picture of Muhammad Dura went world-wide (now known to be set-up, fake). She notes how the EU and its individual states and Canada were involved in the UN Commission of Human Rights which echoed the Arab League’s negation of Sudanese slavery (April 2000). Thanks to these vile western appeasers slavery is referred to as ‘abduction.’ She notes-
‘dhimmitude has become a global way of relationship between Europe and Muslim countries. It has established at all levels a dissymmetry in respect of human rights, freedom of the press, of opinion and religion, as well as democratic rights. The reason is that dhimmitude is not recognised as a crucially important page of world history. Hence the west has adopted the Islamic view of history, where the Dhimmi nations had no history, no culture, no existence. Indeed, Dhimmi peoples have neither a cause nor history. They do not have the right to claim any reparations for the centuries of exile, deportations, spoilations, massacres and persecution. They do not have the right to speak of this. And when they try to retrieve some of their homeland and part of their history, they are called agressors and usurpers.” (p 398)
This applies to Copts, Serbs and other non-Muslim eastern [and western] Europeans and people of the Caucasus, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Jains, Mandaeans, Armenians, Assyrians, Africans, pagans –well everywhere subjected to Islamic conquest, genocide and persecution of remnant populations. There is a great pro-Islamic falsification of history going on. Will we pretend those Muslims who entered India were ‘oppressed’ so they just HAD to slaughter millions of Hindus... Of course the existence of non-Muslims is considered an oppression/fitna for Muslims and must be removed. Will the history of the non-Muslims just vanish as most of them have from their ancestral lands? In Islam, history is only Islamic history.
Muslims so freely entering our countries bring their blue-print for a mono-cultural Islamic world, including slavery –
On July 23rd, 2000 at Trafalgar square from the British based al-Muhajiroun “This summer will once again witness an extraordinary public call to the British public, The Prime minister and The Queen from Muslims in Britain to embrace Islam as a spiritual AND as a political belief.........An opportunity for everyone to discover more about Islam as an economic, ritual, social, judicial or RULING system will be on the agenda.”
And in January 2005 ---Omar Bakri Muhammad, leader of al-Muhajiroun issued a clear declaration of war with Britain—“I believe the whole of Britain has become Dar ul-Harb [land of war] ...The kuffar (non-believer) has no sanctity for their own life or property...”(Sookdheo p 144-145)
This is treason, subversion and a threat of genocide yet British politicians, academics, media and even the royals continue their blind game of huggy, kissy with Islam! The same is true throughout the west-Osama warned the US etc!
“Is the call for jihad against a particular people a religious right by those calling for it, or is it a human rights violation against the people on which jihad is declared and waged?”(Dr john Garang, UN, Geneva, March 22 1999 cited in Bostom 2005, p 15) No doubt this Sudanese man has lost faith as I have in the Islam supporting UN.
Those who think Muslims will merge into the society need to face reality—they do NOT. Look at the dangerous Islamic enclaves, their constant demands for their apartheid system with sharia law and endless Muslim privileging –funds, separate toilets, prayer rooms, special school uniforms, halal food forced onto others, special everything. Don’t mention the crime, violence, welfare abuse and aggressive pursuit, legal and otherwise, of any who dare to criticise them. Tolerant? - NOT Islam! As for those who imagine converting Muslims out of Islam, good luck but remember, Islam kills those who leave so you may succeed with a very brave 2% but what do we do with the 98% whom surveys show, grow increasingly more ‘fundamentalist’ ie true to Islam’s text, laws and Mohammad’s example!
I hope those with intellectual honesty, time and resources will continue to write and expose the well hidden horror of Islam from Mohammad to the present. I have not even touched on the enormous horror of the middle-east’s destruction from Iran to Egypt (Africa) under Islam or the Caucasus, parts of China and Russia...so much destruction of others!
Those who are born Muslim or convert, are also SLAVES
Converts and non-Arab Muslims remain inferior to white Arab Muslim males (the ‘best’ of people!) and were belittled and subjected to ‘a whole series of fiscal, social, political, military and other disabilities’ (B. Lewis cited in Khan p 181).
The Arabs practised a kind of apartheid toward the non-Arab Muslims: “The Arabs looked upon [the non-Arab Muslims] as aliens and, regardless of what class they belonged to, treated them with scorn and contempt. They led them into battles on foot. They deprived them of booty. They would not walk on the same side of the street with them, nor sit at the same repast. In nearly every place, separate encampments and mosques were constructed for their use. Marriage between them and the Arabs was considered a social crime: (Cambridge history of Islam p 40 cited in Warraq 1995 p 202)
Shafi sharia law forbids the marriage of Arab Muslim females to non-Arab Muslim males (‘Allah has chosen the Arabs above others’)(Reliance of the Traveller: Law m4.2 (1) p 523)
Converts may be slaves of Allah but they are inferior slaves!
Islam is a blue-print for slavery with Allah the master and the submissive, blindly obedient slave followers.
*Mohammad is Allah’s slave (Koran 72.19 –“ And when the slave of Allah stood up in prayer...”, plus 2.23, 53.10, 57.9, 8.41, 25.1);
*so is Isa (NOT the Christian Jesus; Isa will return to destroy Christians)(Koran 4.172- “The Messiah will never scorn to be a slave unto allah,...” plus 19.30, and 43.59 “He (Isa) was not more than a slave..”
*all Muslims are slaves (Koran 50.8 – “a vision and a reminder for every penitent slave.” and Koran 34.9, plus 19.93 “There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave” and 39.36- “Is not Allah sufficient for his slave...”) and people in general (Koran 6.88, 42.52)
*Christians are called allah’s slaves (Koran 5.118 “If you punish them, they are your slaves...”
*and those appropriated from other religions eg Noah (Koran 17.3 .. “he was a grateful slave” plus 54.9); Job (Koran 38.44 -when told to take a stick and beat his wife –“ We found him steadfast, how excellent a slave!”); David/Solomon? (Koran 38.30 – “And We bestowed on David, Solomon. How excellent a slave!..”) etc!!
(Pickthall’s translation of the Koran; ALIMCDRom or USC site, Saudi Koran)
Islam’s slaves (Muslims) must perform a variety of tasks or dictates without question as a ledger is kept of their acts yet Allah has already ordained their fate pre-birth including whether they get to heaven or hell (Koran 17.13 “Every man's fate We have fastened on his own neck: On the Day of Judgment We shall bring out for him a scroll, which he will see spread open.” )
Even Mohammad doesn’t know what will happen to himself (Koran 46.9 – “I am not a new thing among the messengers nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I only follow that which is revealed to me, and am but a plain warner.”) yet surprisingly Isa is assured paradise (Koran 3.55 “I will cause you to die and raise you to myself” ) (see Jesus vs. Isa Part2 which is actually Isa compared with Mohammad- 10-01-09; Jesus vs. Isa Part1 - 26-12-08 this site)
Muslims believe only because Allah allows them to while Allah leads others astray and blows their sin into them. Allah created evil (Koran 113.2 “from the evil of what he [Allah] has created”) and is the best deceiver (Koran 3.54, 8.30)
People are forgiven or punished as Allah pleases, and are made accountable yet it’s all pre-ordained by Allah (Koran 16.93 “If Allah so willed, He could make you all one people: But He leaves straying whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases: but ye shall certainly be called to account for all your actions.”). Even if you have followed the dictates diligently you are NOT guaranteed paradise and Allah must fulfil his promise to fill hell with humans and jinn (Koran 7.179; 11.119, 32.13). Most of hell’s inhabitants are women, inferior in their intellect and religion because Allah made them so (hadiths eg Bukhari). There is a huge amount of text on this, some of which is published in Evil Allah Leads People Astray - 13-05-8 this site.
Muslim females are the slaves of Muslim males as well –they can be married off as babies or children by their ‘owner/guardian’; they are fields that can be ploughed as their husband/master wishes; they can be beaten for failing to obey or please, restricted to the home, covered, and flung out/divorced at any time via a few words etc. Her master/husband need only put a roof over her head, supply a limited set amount of food and clothes and little else. In every way she is inferior and reduced to servitude as Islam’s text and laws clearly show (Many articles this site).
Allah is the master who loves very few and can change his mind on a whim and Muslims are indeed slaves who are killed if they try to leave. Muslims are the ultimate slaves without real free will as Allah predetermines their life and dictates every aspect eg-which foot first to enter a toilet..!
Most westerners are aware of the Christian father/child relationship which incorporates love, care, free will, forgiveness, a personal close relationship with god while salvation is always possible. The Christian god loves all including sinners (Allah does NOT love sinners or lots of others). Although not Christian I note that this is in stark contrast to Islam.
**Romans 8.15, 16 (New Testament): “For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship/adoption. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.”
**Koran 6.88 or 42.52: “...He guides whomsoever He will of His slaves...”
** Koran 7.186 To such as Allah rejects from His guidance,(or sendeth astray) there can be no guide: He will leave them in their trespasses, wandering in distraction.
**2 Peter 3.9 (NT): “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
**Ezekiel (Old testament) 33:11 - 'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?'
**Koran 7.179 –“Many are the Jinns and men We have made for Hell..”
**Koran 32.13: “If We had so willed We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true. "I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together."
**Koran 11.119: “.... And the Word of thy Lord hath been fulfilled: Verily I shall fill hell with the jinn and mankind together.”
Christianity/Judaism offers free will and ‘salvation’ at any time with regret for those who die without repentance, while in Islam, Allah deliberately sends people to hell, including his Muslim slaves!
In Christianity, people participate in god’s holy nature –You shall be holy for I YHWH your god are holy (Leviticus 19.2 [OT]; 1Peter 1.15-16[NT]) Humans are created in God’s image (Genesis [OT], 1:27; 5:1; 9:6; James [NT].3:9) and can partake of the divine nature (2.Peter.1:4[NT]) and be co-workers with God (1.Corinthians.3:9; 2.Corinthians.6:1[NT]).
In Islam, Allah is unknown, humans can only submit to his dictates. Allah doesn’t display submission, only his slaves submit.
Well, I’m not religious but I must admit I’d rather a father who loves all and forgives at any time than a remote master who regards me as a slave, pre-programs my life and death and my entry to paradise or hell, removes my free will, threatens me with death if I want to leave and is so unloving, unforgiving and capricious that even his prophet doesn’t know what will happen to him! Those who follow Islam are truly enslaved---they have lost their mind, conscience and soul (if there is one). My point is not to promote Christianity whose supposed followers have at times strayed far from their founder's example, but to point out the need to examine 'religious text' closely for while the same words may be used to describe ‘gods’ the detail reveals great differences which impact on attitudes to others and the types of societies created. As we know words have very different meanings to Muslims than they have for us. If you must have a religion, there's plenty to choose from BUT DON’T PICK ISLAM unless you WANT to be a SLAVE.
Islam is the ultimate in slavery with no escape. I did read a Muslim claiming total submission to Islam’s dictates was ‘freedom’ –one can only presume they meant freedom from reason, and a complete abrogation of moral or personal responsibility for your actions because to a Muslim, anything Mohammad did or allowed is morally correct and blindly followed–a terrifying thought! In Islam slavery=freedom; hijab/chador/burka=emancipation; Islam’s perversion and barbarity are called ‘enlightenment’ and the persecutor (Islam/Muslim) is sold to us as the victim in our morally inverted world.
I will not be the slave of any Muslim nor the slave of Allah the most evil god with the most utterly repulsive prophet I have ever read about, nor will I stand by and see others tricked or forced into Islam’s slavery.
If we are to save our children from slavery, we must teach them the horrifying truth about Islam and we must STOP Islamic migration into our country for once they have the numbers and have infiltrated even further, overt violence will begin as it has everywhere Islam has gone over its entire history.
All non-Muslims need to stand together to stop this poison, this menace, as Islam threatens us ALL.
*"Give me the liberty to know, to utter and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties." John Milton 1608-1674
*“ If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.
There may be even a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as SLAVES”
Winston Churchill. Pg.310 “The Hell Makers” John C. Grover ISBN #
