Slavery is sanctioned in Islam. The word for a black person in Arabic is abid, or slave. Yet this telling fact is hardly known by anyone in the U.S. Consider how many African Americans convert to Islam. Or worse yet, Arabic is now mandatory in a Harlem public school. More proof of the epic failure of African American leadership.
This speaks to the power of disinformation and propaganda, and the effects of the brutal enforcement of the blasphemy laws under Islam (do not criticize Islam, under penalty of death). The truth remains hidden. Unfathomable human rights abuses and shocking war crimes remain largely unknown to the masses — not to the millions of victims, but they have been silenced.
Not all slaves have been freed. In Mauritania, slavery is a reprehensible practice which still exists.
A private court in Nouadhibou, Mauritania’s second largest city, recently sentenced three slave owners up to 10 and 20 years in prison.
El Eid Ould Mubarak, is a lawyer and human rights activist working on the case. “This is the first time there is a Mauritanian committee in place implementing the law against slavery: the verdict is valid, and is in line with the legal atmosphere which is in favor of eradicating slavery.”, says Ould Mubarak….
Mauritania became the last country to abolish slavery in 1981. An amnesty report reveals that 43 thousand people, around 1% of the population, are still enslaved. Today, based on a law adopted in 2015, slavery in Mauritania is an official crime against humanity.
Despite the current reprimanding nature against slavery in Mauritania, rights groups claim that the country has arrested more anti-slavery activists than it did slave owners.
