“Less than 10% of African slaves were brought to North America. Also absent from the report is the fact that arabs operated the slave trade for over 1300 years – a practice which continues to this day, primarily in India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia.”
It is no surprise that the UN would ignore Islamic slavery, both in history and today: the UN is a tool of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which has also been trying for years at the UN to intimidate the West into dropping the freedom of speech and adopting sharia blasphemy laws. And it’s working.
“UN Says Blacks In America Deserve Reparations, Ignores Entire History Of Slavery,” Zero Hedge, September 28, 2017 (thanks to Marsha):
A recent report published by a U.N. commissioned organization concludes that America’s history of slavery justifies reparations for African Americans. The submission by the ‘Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent’ – which one might assume would study all ‘People of African Descent’ around the world, notably fails to opine on other nations which have engaged in the practice – considering that less than 10% of African slaves were brought to North America. Also absent from the report is the fact that arabs operated the slave trade for over 1300 years – a practice which continues to this day, primarily in India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia.
The group presented its findings on Monday, pointing to what they say is a “continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history,” and recommended “Past injustices and crimes against African Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice.”
The report cites last year’s spate of blacks killed by police officers around the United States, which the panel says has created a “human rights crisis” that “must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”
“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”
“Despite substantial changes since the end of the enforcement of Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, ideology ensuring the domination of one group over another, continues to negatively impact the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today,” it said in a statement. “The dangerous ideology of white supremacy inhibits social cohesion amongst the US population.”

What about the rest of the story?
Conspicuously absent from the U.N. report is the fact that the slavery in the United States was facilitated by 1300 years of Arab slave trade. According to Wikipedia:
Some historians assert that as many as 17 million people were sold into slavery on the coast of the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, and North Africa, and approximately 5 million African slaves were bought by Muslim slave traders and taken from Africa across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara desert between 1500 and 1900.
The captives were sold throughout the Middle East. This trade accelerated as superior ships led to more trade and greater demand for labour on plantations in the region. Eventually, tens of thousands of captives were being taken every year.
Will this report pave the way for universal basic income for low income blacks in America?
Ignoring modern slave trade
Meanwhile, the U.N. has been quiet on the topic of countries which haven’t cracked down on the slave trade, including UN Human Rights Council member Saudi Arabia. There are an estimated 21 – 46 million slaves around the world today, with India dominating the top of the list.
