Slavery Today

I can't stress this slavery issue enough.

See my previous post, near the end for example.

Also look here:
Almost nobody in America realizes that 27 million human beings are still enslaved today, more than at the height of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade-and tens of thousands of them reside on American soil.
Much of it is, of course, driven by islam and its teachings that condone it.

Black Africans are still being enslaved today, by arab muslims, just as they were in the days of the slave trade of old. In the Sudan, for example,
As the northern Arabs established an Islamic fundamentalist dictatorship after the British relinquished control, the South rebelled with demands for representation, freedom of religious conscience, and cultural independence...

The Janjaweed, the government-backed Arab militias, are killing, slaughtering, raping, and pillaging with new vigor. Since 2003, it is estimated that 300,000-500,000 have been killed and over 2 million have been displaced. Despite the scale of the genocide, the international community continues to stand by, virtually inactive.
And of course, there are our friends, the saudis, who bring their slaves here to this country:
The two Saudis face charges of forced labor, aggravated sexual abuse, document servitude, and harboring an alien. If found guilty, they could spend the rest of their lives in prison. The government also wants to seize the couple's Al-Basheer bank account to pay their former slave $92,700 in back wages.
There follows several more examples, the other recent ones being:
In March 2005, a wife of Saudi Prince Mohamed Bin Turki Alsaud, Hana Al Jader, 39, was arrested at her home near Boston on charges of forced labor, domestic servitude, falsifying records, visa fraud, and harboring aliens. Ms. Al Jader stands accused of forcing two Indonesian women to work for her by making them believe "that if they did not perform such labor, they would suffer serious harm." If convicted, Ms. Al Jader faces up to 140 years in jail and $2.5 million in fines.

There are many other similar instances, for example, the Orlando escapades of Saudi princesses Maha al-Sudairi and Buniah al-Saud. The writer Joel Mowbray tells of twelve female domestics "trapped and abused" in the households of Saudi dignitaries or diplomats.
This is all acceptable in mohammed's teachings: was out of evangelical Christian circles that abolitionism emerged in American and Britain, and no church today countenances it. While both the Old and New Testaments recognize slavery, the Gospels do not treat the institution as divinely ordained. Christianity recognized slavery as a fact of life, as part of how the world works, as indeed it did in New Testament times.

The Koran, by contrast, not only assumes the existence of slavery as a permanent fact of human existence, but regulates its practice in considerable detail, thereby endowing it with divine sanction by revealing God's detailed will for how it should be conducted....

The Koran explicitly guarantees Moslems the right to own slaves, either by purchasing them or as bounty of war [one of the "perks" of jihad, along with formally sanctioned rape -- RDS]...

In line with the racist views of Mohammed himself about his own people, the Arabs as "the nobles of all races" were exempt from enslavement. More later on the present-day consequences of this in Africa.
This makes islam an evil belief system to the core, and anyone who doesn't explicitly distance themselves from it should be considered as complicit and tainted as anyone who still proclaims their membership in the Nazi party or the KKK.

It's as simple as that.

Why do so few see this? Calling it a "religion" is no defense. What's most ironic is that the liberals who refuse to condemn islam even on these grounds are using a fake reason to "respect" islam as a religion, because in their hearts the liberals I'm sure think all religions and religious people are equally crazy and irrational -- but especially those right-wing Christians!

They must be attempting to merely appear non-bigoted, yet end up defending an intrinsically bigoted belief-system.
