- Muslims have a long history of falsifying the history of their religion, and with the topic of slavery, the same applies.
- We review another example of a Muslim propagandist on the topic of slavery.
Introduction to Islamic Slavery Falsehoods
Islamic Arabs were some of the most prolific slavers over the past several thousand years. Interesting, Muslims don’t acknowledge this history and seem to tell others a fiction of Islam’s relationship to slavery.
The following is a completely inaccurate video about slavery and Islam, as is normal, produced by a Muslim with zero interest in communicating anything true.
This is a very typical whitewash of another horrible practice. Islamic Arabs had a 1200 year period of slavery. Islamic Arabs can be considered the world’s premier slavers. The statements in this video state that slavery by Christians was bad, but somehow slavery by Muslim Arabs was good. This is quite standard in the Muslim community where it is frequently proposed that Islamic individuals can essentially do no wrong.
The Truth About Arab Islamic Slavery
Muslim Arabs enslaved what is estimated to be 152,000,000 African slaves over 1200 years. The death rates of transported African slaves was 85%, the highest of any slavery I have ever researched. The idea that Kamal El Mekki, who is African, would whitewash Islam’s history with slavery is odd. One has to wonder both how much Kamal El Mekki actually knows about Muslim history, and how so many African nations, that suffered so terribly at the hands of Muslim slavers could be Muslim.
Eradicating Slavery in the Muslim World?
Arab Muslim societies never tried to “eradicate slavery”, they never went through any period of analysis where they condemned the practice. Slavery is still prevalent in the Middle East to this day. Coolie labor is brought in to all of the Gulf States (mostly Southeast Asian) and they are paid horribly, and sleep in the construction sites. Their passports are taken and they can’t leave. Qatar is doing this to build infrastructure for the World Cup. Slavery has been reduced in the Muslim world, but not because of internal movements to restrict the practice. This is covered in the following quotation.
“Slavery was gradually outlawed and suppressed in Muslim lands, largely due to pressure exerted by Western nations such as Britain and France.” – Wikipedia
Furthermore, Islamic countries are constantly backsliding on their commitments to reduce slavery.
“For example, Saudi Arabia and Yemen only abolished slavery in 1962 under pressure from Britain; Oman followed suit in 1970, and Mauritania in 1905, 1981, and again in August 2007. However, slavery claiming the sanction of Islam is documented presently in the predominantly Islamic countries of Chad, Mauritania, Niger, Mali, and Sudan.” – Wikipedia
Notice where slavery is still prevalent. Does this look like it maps with the contention that Islam has been so focused on “eradicating” slavery?
This video entirely contradicts the proposal that Muslim abolished slavery. This video is historically accurate, when Muslims describe slavery, it never matches history. The Muslims that provide coverage the topic live in a fantasyland.
Arab Islamic Slavery a Good Thing for Preventing Attacks?
Kamal El Mekki states that the fact that Muslims took slaves was a good thing because it served as a disincentive which prevented Muslims from being attacked. That is, because those that would attack Muslims, thought twice, as if they lost, they would become enslaved to Muslims. However, from its inception, Islam was spread by attacking and invading and expanding as a colonial entity. Muslims took many millions of slaves through these attacks, being careful not to convert slaves to Islam, (as they would then have to be released, as only non-Muslims are allowed to be enslaved). Slaves are a type of war booty, and therefore can be viewed as one of the motivators for Muslim conquest.
Thus Kamal El Mekki’s explanation/justification of Muslim slave taking as a defensive tactic is at odds with Islamic history. Muslims took slaves whenever they would. But the vast majority of those that became slaves under Islamic Arabs did so under conquest. Furthermore, the 152,000,000 Africans that were enslaved by Muslims certainly did not attack Muslims.
This one statement by Kamal El Mekki, even without reviewing the rest of his statements in this video, calls into question how much he has an interest in communicating anything true.
Muhammed’s Endorsement and Use of Slavery
Muhammed was himself a slaver and very much in favor of slavery. Yet Muslims never seem to discuss Muhammed’s undeniable relationship to slavery. Why do Muslims have so little to say about Muhammed’s relationship to slavery? Are they hiding something?
Understanding Islam by Ignoring Muslim Presentation of History
The best way to understand Islam is to research the topic without listening to the filter provided by a person who is Muslim. Muslims don’t provide an accurate history of their religion to Kafirs, nonbelievers. Lying to the Kafir is called Taqiyya and is used to advance the cause of Islam. Of all the religions, Islam provides the least accurate information about itself and its history. This is why this video made by a non-Muslim is far more accurate than any video made by a Muslim on the topic of Islamic slavery.
Being a non-Muslim, Bill Warner is able to far more accurately explain the history of Islam than any Muslim. Muslims also face pressure and threats of violence to provide inaccurate and positively biased explanations of the history of Islam.
How Lying Unifies All Religions
All religions lie about their history. The Catholic church lies about its child molestation. The Mormons lie about how Joseph Smith was killed and why. Scientology lies about how it steals from its followers and how top-level Scientologists travel the galaxy at light speed. Lying is the default position of religions because to be religious means that one rejects evidence. Therefore, it should not be surprising that religions lie so much. There is no evidence for religion, yet the religious person does not follow the scientific approach and responding to the lack of evidence declares “I do not know,” but rather seeks to elaborate on the position of ignorance that they do know, and then seek to convince others of one of a number of unsubstantiated stories.

It bears asking the question, why is it standard and widely accepted to discuss those who are Christian and their involvement in slavery, but taboo to discuss the far larger and longer involvement of those who are Muslim and involved in slavery. Could Muslim slavery be taught in universities honestly, or would a class that dealt with the subject be censored because it was not politically correct and “insensitive to people of color”?
Where is Modern Slavery?
Where is Modern Slavery?
Slavery or pseudo slavery is one of the most suppressed areas of societies.
There is a strong desire to present slavery as a thing of the past, or that it was localized to only a particular country (say the US, for instance). Modern establishment media are very reticent to point out slavery and often present the image that countries are “developing.” Multinationals become wealthy from slavery conditions.
For instance, home improvement stores in the US may sell a mop for $13, but only pay $2 for the mop to be imported from China.
- Multinationals like to call these profits “innovation.”
- Multinationals want the labor and environmental exploitation from that type of margin legitimized — hence the desire to suppress slavery or slaver like conditions.
The secret is to hide slavery from the consumer. This is done in many industries. It even works in luxury items — which still pretend to not be made in terrible work conditions.
The only thing French in this advertisement is the actress. The purse was most likely made in a sweatshop in China. However, the factories in China that lack environmental or labor regulations cannot be called slavery operations — because too much money is being made by multinationals.
If multinationals disagree with something, establishment media will not report on those topics. Multinationals want slavery to be only be seen in a historical context. To a multinational making enormous profit margins, there is no modern slavery. In the future, increasingly our news will come from media entities that are owned outright by billionaires like the Washington Post, Time and Forbes are today.
It is critical to get on the same page as billionaires. Theirs is the opinion that matters.
The following list will explain to you the things you are required to believe. This will also help you get along in upper class educated WOKE environments — who also agree with billionaires on these topics.
How to Get on the Same Page With Billionaires
To make sure you agree with multinationals and billionaires remember to say the following things about slavery.
- Slavery happened a long time ago and was stopped. Once slavery was abolished in the US, slavery in the rest of the world (which did not exist in any case) immediately disappeared.
- Slavery is not a multi millennia feature of human societies that continues to the present day.
- Slavery is only if a white person owns a non-white person. If Apple has its products made in China — it is not slavery as there are no white people involved in that Chinese factory. Slavery is not a function of the treatment of labor but is a function of the races of the involved parties.
- Because it is a proven fact that only whites want or ever owned slaves, there is no necessity to worry about looking into labor conditions in non-white countries — which cannot meet the definition of slavery conditions in any case. (See bullet point #3)
- If slave-like conditions exist, they are justified by the lack of resources. This explains a country like Qatar, which is one of the wealthiest in the world due to its enormous oil reservers versus its tiny population — but must have imported indentured labor — because it can’t afford to pay normal workers.
- Multinationals are dedicated to lifting the working conditions in the undeveloped world
“Arabs are the most noble people in the lineage, the most prominent, the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the vizers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in Allah’s Cause. Killing him is a small matter for us.”
