Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed. Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam. Raising the alarm about the fascism called Submission since 2000.
Sura 16 (The Bee), verse 75
“Allah sets forth a parable: (consider) a slave, the property of another, (who) has no power over anything, and one whom We have granted from Ourselves a goodly sustenance so he spends from it secretly and openly; are the two alike? (All) praise is due to Allah!"
A total of approximately 11.7 million African Blacks were taken as slaves out of West and Central Africa and transported to the 'New World' from 1450 until 1900. Less than 500.000 ended up in America. 5 million went to Ecuador and Brazil and a further 5 plus million to the plantations of West Indies and Caribbean. This immoral trade in the flesh of divinely inspired humans, was part of the 'triangle of business' between northern Europe, the Americas and Africa. Humans went west, sugar, spices, cotton, tobacco and some manufactured goods that the slaves produced went from the Americas to northern Europe; and from Europe to the New World were exported manufactured items. A ship carrying slaves might well fill its cargo in the West Indies and make for Europe, to return to the America's laden with European manufacture.
This story is well known and forms the basis of cultural Marxist and Western 'guilt'. Guilt is indeed a strong emotion and a positive one. It shows that a conscience exists, one of the rudiments of morality. The Christians who had ended slavery within Europe by 800 AD, ended this trans-Atlantic immorality by the mid 19th-century. It took a white-fought civil war to end the cancer in the US south – one of history's most abominable sub-empires; illiterate, savage, unproductive, and uncultured. The opposite of what Hollywood portrays in fact. It is also true, though little commented upon, that the Portuguese and other slave traders operating down the African coast encountered many Muslim Blacks, and viewed slavery in part, as the continuation of the Christian struggle against Islam. Muslims and Arabs were of course the great middlemen in the slave trade, with many Black tribes such as the Ashanti, becoming quite wealthy from the sale of other captured Blacks.
The important point is this: the Muslim trafficking of slaves is rarely discussed, including that of the 10 million Whites taken into bondage.
The Arab and Muslim culling of Whites began early within Islamic history. As the Muslim Jihad exploded West the Christianized and Judaized lands of the Levant, Syria, North Africa, Sicily and Spain; and later the Balkans, Ukraine southern Russia, Hungary and Poland, were given simple choices: convert to the Allah cult; pay taxes as second class slaves; or die. Dhimmitude, or the forced extraction of monies in the form of the head tax; and land tax [which was by far the most profitable for the Moslems]; is a form of slavery. But even beyond this, we can state with some certainly that most likely 10 million Whites were taken by Muslims as slaves over 1300 years. A further 11-15 million Blacks were likewise enslaved over this same period. Keep in mind that for every slave which made it alive to the slave markets, on average 3 would die either in the capture of a slave, or on the long travel from the slave hunting grounds to market.
R. C. Davis in his study of Muslim enslavement of whites estimated that from the years 1580 to 1680 nearly a million Whites were taken in bondage by Moslems to the Maghreb or North Africa. This is one century and certainly not the most active. The two most ferocious Magrebian corsairs or Muslim pirates were Barbarossa a Greek convert to the Allah cult [or Red Beard]; and Dragut the terror of Malta and Sicily. They operated from about 1520 to 1565. Either of these men would routinely take 10.000 or more Whites as slaves in a single large raid. Between the two of these Muslim pirates more than 500.000 Whites from the Mediterranean littoral were taken as prisoner. And these are only two examples. Dozens of mini-Draguts, were plying the waterways as far away as Iceland in the hope of plunder, rape, coinage and the lucrative White slave.
In the 19th century we know from the Italian and British consuls at Tripoli, Algiers and other slave ports that the average slave population in a large center like Tripoli for example would have at any one time, no less than 20.000 or 30.000 White slaves. The death rates for slaves would have been high, making replenishment a sordidly profitable business. Each year in North Africa at least 10.000 fresh White slaves would be needed to maintain its slave population. This is 1.000.000 White slaves in one century.
North Africa was the minor center of slave-trading, though the execrable practice of enslaving British and American Christians brought a military response by the combined British-American forces in the early 19th century, followed with a French invasion in the middle part of the same century. The Turkish empire was of course the prime center of the White slave trade. No less than 3 million Hungarians and central Europeans were enslaved by the Turks. Most likely a similar amount were taken in Russia and the Ukraine-Polish corridor. We are talking about 10 million Whites taken as slaves into the Allah-cult.
On the other side of the ledger some Moslems were enslaved by Christian states. In particular the military orders of Rhodes [taken and destroyed by the Turks in 1522]; and then Malta [which defeated the Turks in 1565]; took Moslem captives, using many on their galleys and in their homes, or selling them on to Europe. But this trade was rather small. The military orders never numbered more than a few thousand, making the mass whole-sale enslavement of Moslems an impossibility. They also operated for only about 300 years, versus the 1300 years of Islamic slave trading. The Knights of Malta and Rhodes had on hand, probably somewhere around 10.000 Moslem slaves, mostly engaged in the work of managing and rowing their galleys. The death rate from such work, especially in battle or in high speed encounters and chases, would have been quite high. Most likely fewer than one million Moslems were enslaved by the Christians and their military orders. A number which is 10% of the reverse flow.
Islam and the Koran not only permit slavery but actively encourage it. The entire Muslim enterprise was based on forms of slavery. Non-Muslims were second-class tax paying slaves; who were allowed to exist based on the whims and fancies of their Muslim overlords. The Islamic domestic economy was entirely slave based. Slaves worked the mines, the fields, the homes, or were trained to aid Moslem armies as militia. Sex slaves and harems [or seraglio's for the caliph]; are hallmarks of Islam's sensuality and lust for flesh. The Koran makes more than 40 references to holding humans with the 'right hand', the hand of power and the hand that a slave master would use to hold the collar of his slave.
Sura 33.50 also grants Mohammed and Muslims the right to own slaves:
“O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those [slaves] whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who fled with you; and a believing woman if she gave herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desired to marry her -- specially for you, not for the (rest of) believers; We know what We have ordained for them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess in order that no blame may attach to you; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.”
On the Day of Judgment, Infidels and slaves were given their poor 'record' in their left hand, denoting the fact that they were doomed for rejecting the Allah-thing and condemned to eternal hell-fire. It is no exaggeration to state that Islam was in the main a cult built around slavery. Even the fierce New Soldiers or Janisseries of the Ottoman cult were trained young Christian men, forcibly converted to Islam, and saturated in Allah veneration, not to mention lethal military training.
The Arab world before the creation by Mohammed of the Allah-cult, was full of domestic Black slaves and the pre-Mohammed economy was based on the profits from trade heading to the Levant and Syria from Yemen and India and a meager domestic economy in agriculture and manufacture centred around the use of slaves. Islam simply took slavery and made it 'holy', as long as the slaves were not Muslims. Mohammed himself possessed a score of pagan Black slaves, manumitting two. Indeed one of the earliest converts to the Mohammed cult was his favorite Black slave, a man he let free, though he thought of Blacks as 'raisin heads' and 'stupid', Mohammed was more interested in a racially-neutral Umma and cult; than he was in the superiority of a skin color, though we should hasten to add Arab Muslim males were at the top of the Muslim hierarchy within Islamic power, well into the time of the Abassid Caliphate of the 10th century.
It is a dark age indeed when the crimes of Whites in the slave-trade are highlighted and emphasized and yet the Moslem cult, which puts slavery at the center of its economic, social, and military development is completely ignored. 11-15 million Blacks and 10 million Whites perished as slaves within Islam. Surely that merits analysis and debate, not to mention talk of compensation?
