The Number of People Enslaved

The number of people enslaved by Muslims has been a hotly debated topic, especially when the millions of Africans forced from their homelands are considered.

Some historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab slave traders. Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world.

Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his 2001 book, The Legacy of Ar ab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million Black people more died en route.


Arab Enslavers Practiced Genetic Warfare

The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys between the age of 8 and 12 had their scrotums and *****es completely amputated to prevent them from reproducing. About six of every 10 boys bled to death during the procedure, according to some sources, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.

Some men were castrated to be eunuchs in domestic service and the practice of neutering male slaves was not limited to only Black males. “The calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7,000 black eunuchs and 4,000 white eunuchs in his palace,” writes author Ronald Segal in his 2002 book, Islam’s Black Slaves: The Other Black Diaspora.



Arab Slave Trade Inspired Arab Racism Toward Blacks

Its important to note that Arab is not a racial classification; an Arab is almost like an American in that people classified as Arab today could be Caucasian (white people), Asiatic or even Arabized Africans. In the beginning there was some level of mutual respect between the Blacks and the more lighter skinned Arabs. However, as Islam and the demand for enslaved Blacks grew, so did racism toward Africans.

As casual association with Black skin and slave began to be established, racist attitudes towards Blacks began to manifest in Arabic language and literature. The word for slave – Abid – became a colloquialism for African. Other words such as Haratin express social inferiority of Africans.

Islam is a slave culture, that's built into its genetic structure. It is a religion of collective submission which is deeply antagonistic to individual freedom and worth. That is a necessary moral requisite to rationalize slavery.

We should really thank Muslims.

They've turned conservatives into progressives.

So Muslims were as prickish as everyone else in history......

“Enslavement was a very real possibility for anyone who traveled in the Mediterranean, or who lived along the shores in places like Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, and even as far north as England and Iceland.”


During the time period Davis studied, it was religion and ethnicity, as much as race, that determined who became slaves.

The result is that between 1530 and 1780 there were almost certainly 1 million and quite possibly as many as 1.25 million white, European Christians enslaved by the Muslims of the Barbary Coast.

Davis said his research into the treatment of these slaves suggests that, for most of them, their lives were every bit as difficult as that of slaves in America.

“As far as daily living conditions, the Mediterranean slaves certainly didn’t have it better,” he said.

While African slaves did grueling labor on sugar and cotton plantations in the Americas, European Christian slaves were often worked just as hard and as lethally – in quarries, in heavy construction, and above all rowing the corsair galleys themselves.

Davis said his findings suggest that this invisible slavery of European Christians deserves more attention from scholars.

“We have lost the sense of how large enslavement could loom for those who lived around the Mediterranean and the threat they were under,” he said. “Slaves were still slaves, whether they are black or white, and whether they suffered in America or North Africa.”

Naturally, the OP disregards the fact that white Europeans enslaved even more people (including multiples of millions in Asia and the Americas) in one fraction of that time frame. This shows the racist barbarism of white Christianity.

All three of the Abrahamic faiths promoted slavery.

As well as most North american First Nations tribes, Incas, Mayans, South East Asia, Medieval Japan, China...... So, in reality, it is a "human" thing rather than a "religious".

I would agree but isn't religion also a human thing? I would think that the concept of a compassionate Christ and a merciful God would promote the abolishment of slavery. History has shown the opposite to be true.

point is, the Abrahamic Faiths are not the common denominator as you alluded.

The point is, not only have all three of the Abrahamic faiths been known to condone slavery, they have promoted it. That is the point, and the scripture they have written justified it.

and there's the difference between you and I. I HAVE a wonderful loving wife and adult kids that still fill my house on holidays.

I don't have to come on to an internet forum to whine about how "things aren't the same". Sucks to be you. Can't keep a wife, and the kids don't find you to be important enough to visit during the holidays.

You really do seem to have a hard on for priests..... or is it that you are jealous of them? Or is that the reason your kids won't visit you, don't trust you around their kids? Were you got doing "not so nice things" to your grandkids? Is that why your wife left ya and your kids don't come around?

So you admit to your sick sexual preferences. Charter member of the man/boy organization? Does that mean it's not only been your grandkids, but also your own children when they were young? Their friends?

I'll leave that all to you. This little "peak" into your history was very enlightening. I can see why your kids don't want to have anything to do with you. Sharing them around with the "priests" really was beyond sick and makes it very understandable why you are alone on Christmas.
