Odd Bedfellows

It seems inconsistent that many members of the academic elite and their minority constituents  identify with Muslims and embrace Islamic beliefs and values.  This seems particularly strange since the victimhood industry seeks to justify its demands for separate and unequal treatment by citing the practice of slavery in the US a century and one-half ago.

How can people who find slavery abhorrent identify with a religion, its prophet, and the peoples who are devout followers of Islam when Arab Muslims operate an active slave trade that preys upon black Africans?  Stephen Brown writes in “The Dark World of the Arab Child Trade” that under sharia law, which rules the Sudan and the Gulf States, Muslims are legally allowed to own slaves.

The Western world rejects slavery out of hand, especially child slaves; however, many fundamentalist Muslims view the psychological death and destruction of innocent lives as their legal right.  Under Sharia law, slavery is recognized as a valid enterprise and is extensively regulated.  Revealingly, one reason for this inhuman sense of entitlement is the prophet Muhammad was also a slave owner, setting the example for the fundamentalists.  

Recent American converts to Islam seem blithely unaware that many, if not most, Arab Muslim fundamentalists view them with a codified religious supremacy.  [T]here is also the element of racial superiority behind the hideous practice of Arab slavery, especially when it concerns black Africans. Arab racism is at the roots of Islamic slavery that has seen 14 million black Africans enslaved and sold around the Islamic world. 

The New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof reports that University of Cairo professor and Islamic historian Dr. Abu Zayd declared that keeping slave girls and taxing non-Muslims were contrary to Islam.  This so infuriated fundamentalists that a Sharia court declared that he was an apostate and divorced him from his wife.  The couple was forced to flee to Europe to avoid assassination at the hands of religious zealots.
Fundamentalist Islam is not merely anti-American.  It is vehemently anti-woman and stridently pro-slavery with a history of stoning women and exploiting black Africans.  Given that this history is widely known, how did Louis Farrakhan and his minions manage to convert so many young male and female African Americans to a religion whose leaders advocate for the moral and social equivalent of Old South slavery?
Actually, it was easy for them because part of their propaganda arm is the compliant and complicit national lapdog media.  This branch of the progressive establishment will stoop to anything to recruit members, including lying to their targets and enslaving them on the federal welfare plantation.  

The other part of their propaganda machine is the national education collective.  It spreads disinformation through non-factual historical revisionism that benights those whom they wish to manipulate.  They have been quite successful. 

May your gods be with you.
