Slavery and Islam

Slavery and Islam have been linked institutions since the Prophet Mohammed stepped onto the scene and allegedly uttered the words that were taken down and became the Qur-an. (Mohammed was illiterate). Recently we've seen a resurgence of slavery in Islamic lands and advocacy for the practice as set forth in the Wikipedia citation below (Search Criteria: Islamic Views on Slavery)
In recent years, according to some scholars,[90] there has been a "reopening"[91] of the issue of slavery by some conservative Salafi Islamic scholars after its "closing" earlier in the 20th century when Muslim countries banned slavery and "most Muslim scholars" found the practice "inconsistent with Qur'anic morality."[92][93] 
In 2003 in what one scholar called a "ominous and disturbing development" a high-level Saudi jurist, Shaykh Saleh Al-Fawzan, issued a fatwa claiming “Slavery is a part of Islam. Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam.”[94] He attacked Muslim scholars who said otherwise maintaining they were "infidels" and “ignorant, not scholars.” At the time of the fatwa, al-Fawzan was a member of the Senior Council of Clerics, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body, 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, the main Wahhabi center of learning in the country. 
According to multiple sources, religious calls have also been made to capture and enslave Jewish women. As American journalist John J. Miller said, "It is hard to imagine a serious person calling for America to enslave its enemies. Yet a prominent Saudi cleric, Shaikh Saad Al-Buraik, recently urged Palestinians to do exactly that with Jews: 'Their women are yours to take, legitimately. God made them yours. Why don't you enslave their women?'" [95]
I find it ironic that Barack, who harps on the institution of slavery in America's past endlessly, would have such fondness for Islam. That feeling extends to all black Americans who are angry at that institution, and feel as if they have an axe to grind - including the Nation of Islam (a black organization in America). Has candidate Hillary Clinton said a single word about the Islamic practice of keeping sex slaves? No outrage there?

We know that the savages in ISIS practice slavery, particularly as it applies to female sex slaves (which is allowed and encouraged by the Quar-an) and yet I have heard scant international outrage at the practice. Even liberal rags such as the New York Times have covered the practice (read here).
In its official publications, the Islamic State has stated that it is legal for a man to rape the women he enslaves under just about any circumstance. Even sex with a child is permissible, according to a pamphlet published by the group. The injunction against raping a pregnant slave is functionally the only protection for the captured women.
It's illegal to criticize Islam in Great Britain and Canada -- called "hate speech". How convenient?

  1. Mohammad was fond of the practice and Muslims are supposed to follow his example. It looks to me like ISIS and their friends in Saudi are simply walking the walk.

    Of course it's the NRA's fault.

    1. I tend to blame George W. Bush...but you're in Texas, and it would be blaspheming to do it there...

  2. The whole concept of Islam as a valid religion won't wash with me. Mohammed was just a tryant who set himself up as a god, and prattled on and on about how the world should work to serve him, and his sycophants around him wrote all of his crap down, and called it the Koran.

    He's no more of a prophet than David Koresh was, when he set up his Branch Davidian cult. Mohammed was wildly successful, however, in spreading his word, unlike poor David Koresh.

    1. Uh, this could be awkward. You're saying that Koresh wasn't a prophet. (mutters to himself). Guess I need to find another cult.

      Anyway, and all joking aside, Mohammed was slightly smarter than the rest of the savages because they all worshiped him and still do. Giving the women in conquered lands to his men to rape and do with as they pleased helped him get more soldiers to join in the looting/raping/looting/raping thing that they still like to do.

      It mystifies me that Hillary thinks that she can be a fawning fan of the Muslims and still remain valid with women. The same women who would be enslaved and raped by Muslims if they were in charge.

    2. Good luck in your search for that new cult, I'm sure there's lots of them out there that would welcome your assets into the fold with open arms. (You, maybe not so much).

      I am not mystified at all with how cozy Hillary seems to be with all of these Middle Eastern potentates. Dealing with the devil is all part of the Clinton play book. And being two-faced is not a flaw in this playbook, but rather an asset. Dummies/evil-doers on both sides will go along with either face.

  3. Additional note: letting his warriors take women as slaves is not something only Mohammed did in recruiting muscle: Ghengis Khan thought that this was a good thing, too. But he didn't think to set himself up as a god, although he could have, piece o' cake.
