Islam and Slavery

We in the US are often taken to task for our previous involvement in slavery.  For those critical of the US, it is of no importance that about 1/2 of the nation was willing to go to war with our own countrymen to stop the practice.

Islamic countries, on the other hand, get a pass for even more egregious practices towards slaves.

Bill Warner, in a FrontPage Magazine interview, argues that Islam is based on slavery, and still is tolerant of slavery - of kafirs, or infidels.
 Both a black African and a black slave have the same name, abd. The historical reason for this is that African slavery was so important to Islamic economics. Language reflects history. Islamic legal history is filled with the complaints by African Muslim jurists about how Arabic Muslim slave traders captured African Muslims and sold them on the auction block.
History records around 11,000,000 Africans being sent to the Americas and about 13,000,000 being sent to Islamic countries for a total of 24,000,000 African slaves. To get one slave, many others have to be killed for the tribe to surrender to enslavement. The old, sick and children are left behind to starve. These collateral deaths are conservatively estimated to about 5 to 1. So that implies that over 1400 years, 120,000,000 million Africans have been killed to furnish Islam with its profits.
The accepted history of race in the U.S. is that white men captured Africans, brought them to the U.S. and sold them as slaves. This is wrong. When the white slavers showed up on the west coast of Africa, they didn’t capture Africans. They looked them over in the pens, gave the Muslim slave traders their money, took their bills of sale, and loaded their purchases into their boats.
The Muslims had been plying the trade of war, capture, enslavement, and sale for a thousand years. Mohammed was a slave trader. Long after the white slave traders quit, the Muslims continued their African slave trade. It still exists today.
 My bolding.  Aside from sanctioning slavery, Islam also condones rape.

Yes.  Rape of non-Islamic women.  A modern Egyptian lawyer has gone public with her urging for Arabs to rape Israeli women.  And, as the article points out:
Since Sharia law allows for marriage of underage girls it’s safe to say that young children won’t be spared from this new form of “resistance.”
