Forgotten European slaves of Islamic Barbary North Africa and Islamic Ottoman Turkey

(Before It's News)

With all the talk about the great faith traditions of Islam, we hear little of one of its greatest traditions, slavery. Even today, slavery is rampant in the Muslim world. In Mauritania alone, twenty percent of the population are blacks enslaved by Muslims.

No one ever talks about that. Instead, they rail against American slavery, despite the fact that we lost 650,000 Americans in the fight to free the slaves. Never, in the history of Islam, have Muslims ought to free the slaves. They are not so much forgotten, but scrubbed from history in accordance with Islamic law.

The forgotten European slaves of Islamic Barbary North Africa and Islamic Ottoman Turkey

By Robert Spencer, November 25, 2016

“Ohio State University history Professor Robert Davis describes the White Slave Trade as minimized by most modern historians in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500–1800 (Palgrave Macmillan).”

“White slavery” is a common term, but it is unfortunate, as the slaves described in this video were not captured and enslaved because they were white, but because they were non-Muslim. Their capture and enslavement was based on elements of Islamic law that are still part of that law in all its various permutations and manifestations.
