Waterboarding terrorists is very, very bad, but Saudi Arabia torturing bloggers and executing gays seems to be not a problem.

    On the Modern day Slave trade

    Child Slavery in Islamic Countries

    …While tens of thousands of adults are also victims of Arab slavers, many people only first took notice of the Arab slave trade in children when reports of enslaved child camel jockeys emerged from Persian Gulf countries. A 2004 HBO documentary on the subject was especially responsible for making Americans aware of this modern-day barbarism. ….

    “As many as 6,000 child camel jockeys…languished in hidden slavery on ozbah farms, where their masters beat them and starved them to keep their weight down,” wrote E. Benjamin Skinner in his book, A Crime So Monstrous.

    When investigating in the 1990s the enslavement of hundreds of thousands of black Africans in Mauritania by Arab-Berber masters, African-American author Samuel Cotton was stunned to discover that African children were still being kidnapped by Arabs traveling with camels carrying big baskets. The child, usually playing alone, would suddenly be snatched from its play and placed in one such basket, after which its new owners hurried away. ….

    Also during his investigation, which was summarized in his highly informative book Silent Terror: A Journey Into Contemporary African Slavery, Cotton was told there was “still a huge trafficking in slaves going on between Mauritania and the United Arab Emirates.”

    Black African children are also not always stolen so surreptitiously. Until recently in the southern Sudan, the old-fashioned slave raid witnessed villages being burned down, the men killed and the women and children captured. This was the Arab slavers’ main harvesting tool of humans. Thousands of children were captured by this murderous method and forcibly taken as agricultural, domestic and sex slaves to Arab northern Sudan — where many still languish today. Darfur has also seen many children disappear from both refugee camps and towns subjected to central government attack. They are suspected victims of Arab slave hunters.

    But it is not only non-Arab children who are Arab child slave trade victims. An Egyptian newspaper, referring to a 2008 UNICEF report, stated Egyptian children are being bought and sold for about $3,000 for “domestic work and farming, among other things.” This trade in children is so extensive in Egypt, organizations are “employing brokers, and even operating their own web sites.

    “Many are also sent to the Gulf States, with orphanages being a major supplier,” the story further reports…..

    An article from several years ago told why a male black slave is so valuable. The male child is made a eunuch by removing everything. Most die as a result.

    From this article:

    3) Islam’s Eunuch slavery: Eunuch slavery became prominent within 200 years of the initial Arab jihad conquests (i.e., 9th century) and continued into the 20th century (Bostom 2005, p. 92). Eunuch slaves were obtained from raids outside the Muslim lands. Under Islam male slaves were castrated usually between the ages of 4 and 12. Most were used to supervise women in Muslim harems. Handsome young boy eunuchs (Ghilman) were also used for homosexual activity.

    The following text can clearly be read in the Koran as Allah sanctioning the use of eunuchs — who clearly lack sexual desire or needs or vigor (capacity to perform sexually), particularly when castrated as children:

    Koran 24.31 “And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, …..or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! So that you may be successful” (shakir translation USC site)

    Koran 52.24 “Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them, young male servants (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.”

    Disgustingly Muslim apologist Amuni (2008) tries to make Islam sound great by noting the eunuchs (some only) “life of luxury.” “Aren’t you just keen to be completely emasculated so you can service your master’s desires or guard his harem?” …

    While Slavic and Greek slaves had their testicles removed, black African slaves had their testicles and penis cut off (Trivkovic 2002, p. 174). Slaves across Islam’s reach e.g. India, Asia were castrated. Black slaves were castrated “based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite” (Scourge, 2004)….

    The King of these people is who Obummer bows to and honors? THESE are the people Blacks in the USA HONOR and whose religion they adopt?!? Are they nuts?

  2. I think Obama should have the honour of being the first openly gay president arrested in Saudi Arabia.

      How is that popping any bubbles?

      Who said we liked the Bush and the Shrub?

      Let’s just hope we can keep both flip-flopping Romney, the twig and their look alikes out of the Republican nomination.

      I haven’t seen anyone I wanted to vote FOR most of my adult life.

    His marriage to Michelle for over 20 years does make him somewhat of an expert. But it does make you wonder about his capacity for reason, if he had been waterboarded, it would have been over a very long time ago.

    Obama is trying to talk Larry Sinclair into taking a trip to Saudi Arabia.
