The Other Black Genocide

by baldilocks

This post orig­i­nally appeared at my old blog in 2010 – a response to a per­son who called me “dumb” and implied that IBaldilocks mini was a “trai­tor to my race” for oppos­ing the build­ing of the Ground Zero Mosque. That may seem ridicu­lous on its face, but it points to a deeper decep­tion: that Islam is a “black reli­gion” because of its wide­spread pres­ence on the African continent.

We have seen the actions of groups like Boko Haram and ISIS as they con­quer non-​Muslims: they murder/​castrate the men and boys and sell the women and girls into sex slav­ery. What fewer peo­ple know is that this is a 1400-​year pat­tern for Islamic con­querors. They are merely fol­low­ing their leader.

And what a minor­ity of black Amer­i­cans know is that, for nearly that entire time period – well before the Euro­pean slavers and colo­nial­ists noticed the con­ti­nent – black Africa was con­tin­u­ally sub­ject to this Islamic onslaught, with the usual choice offered.

One might call Islam “Africa’s death,” regard­less of the choice each indi­vid­ual black African has made.

In 2008, I posted the fol­low­ing video via YouTube. It had been part of a series which exposed the truth about the Islamic Civ­i­liza­tion with spe­cial empha­sis on the hor­rors of the Trans–Saha­ran Slave Trade. My intent was to counter the exhor­ta­tions of Barack Obama’s for­mer pas­tor, Jere­miah Wright, and the like-​minded who con­tinue to exco­ri­ate Amer­ica and the rest of West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion for past sins against black African Slaves and Amer­i­cans of African descent.

The own­ers of YouTube, how­ever, have blocked the account of John Alem­bil­lah Azumah – the man inter­viewed in the series and the author of the book, The Legacy of Arab-​Islam in Africa: A Quest for Inter-​religious Dia­logue. One can guess that some peo­ple were offended by the series – a state of affairs which often occurs when the truth is told.

This par­tic­u­lar copy of the video, enti­tled “Mus­lim Black Slav­ery — Islam Slave His­tory of Black Africa,” is now posted at Meta­Cafe by a third party.

Here’s Azumah’s preamble:

The suc­cess of Mohammedan Islam in deceiv­ing, mis­in­form­ing, deform­ing and con­tort­ing both his­tory and real­ity over a period of almost four­teen hun­dred years has been astound­ing – that is, until now.

The great­est tragedy about this par­tic­u­lar sub­ject is that most of the descen­dants of African slav­ery – the black peo­ple in the Amer­i­cas, around the world, as well as among the African blacks – are totally igno­rant of the actual facts.

Before we lose the con­cen­tra­tion of our vis­i­tors, I would like to make the fol­low­ing state­ment and then prove it: that the worst, most inhu­mane and most dia­bol­i­cal of the black African Slave Trade was ini­ti­ated, refined, per­pe­trated and imple­mented by the Mohammedan Arabs and, later, aided and abet­ted by the black con­verts to Mohammedan Islam.

I pre­dict that, as usual, the two sub­cul­tures – those of denial of facts and of Polit­i­cal Cor­rect­ness – will attack us with­out once dis­prov­ing a sin­gle state­ment and/​or con­clu­sion that we make.

And here are some per­ti­nent excerpts:

While the Euro­pean involve­ment in the African Trans-​Atlantic Slave Trade to the Amer­i­cas lasted for just over three cen­turies, the Arab involve­ment in the African Slave Trade has lasted four­teen cen­turies and, in some parts of the Mohammedan world, is still con­tin­u­ing to this day.

(…)

It should also be noted that black slaves were cas­trated based on the assump­tion that the blacks had an ungovern­able sex­ual appetite.

(…)

A com­par­i­son of the Islamic Slave Trade to the Amer­i­can Slave Trade reveals some extremely inter­est­ing contrasts.

While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the pro­por­tions were reversed in the Islamic Slave Trade: two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.

While the mor­tal­ity rate of slaves being trans­ported across the Atlantic was as high as ten per­cent, the per­cent­age of slaves dying in tran­sit in the Trans-Sahara[n] and East African Slave mar­ket was a stag­ger­ing eighty to ninety percent.

(…)

While many chil­dren were born to slaves in the Amer­i­cas – the mil­lions of their descen­dants are cit­i­zens in Brazil and the United States of today – very few descen­dants of the slaves that ended up in the Mid­dle East survived.

While most slaves who went to the Amer­i­cas could marry and have fam­i­lies, most of the male slaves des­tined for the Mid­dle East were cas­trated and most of the chil­dren born to the women were killed at birth.

Azumah pro­nounces the denial of the facts con­cern­ing the on-​going Islamic Slave Trade as ‘obscene.’

To those whose male ances­tors sur­vived Amer­i­can Slav­ery long enough to ensure that the for­mer would be alive in the twenty-​first cen­tury and, there­fore, be able to refer to me as a House Negro for sus­pect­ing the motives of the puta­tive builders of the “Ground Zero” Mosque, I feel pity.

That pity is mixed with a sense of aston­ish­ment, how­ever, at this con­clu­sion: that so many black peo­ple are so well indoc­tri­nated with per­pet­ual anger at the sins of America’s past, that they would ignore the more egre­gious sins of Islam’s present and desired future. Hurl­ing epi­thets and pre­tend­ing that the oppo­nents of the “Ground Zero” Mosque want to sti­fle free­dom of reli­gion is a lot eas­ier than gath­er­ing the per­ti­nent facts, con­nect­ing them, ana­lyz­ing them and com­ing to a cogent con­clu­sion, it seems.

On the other hand, per­haps such peo­ple have indeed con­cluded that Islam would like to expand its anni­hi­la­tion of those of African descent–with black men being the spe­cial and spec­i­fied tar­gets for anni­hi­la­tion. Per­haps the sling­ing of epi­thets, etc. is merely a smoke­screen – an insur­ance for the future. Such peo­ple will be able to say to their future mas­ters, “see? I stood up for the Ummah against that infi­del, Ochieng.”

Maybe such peo­ple are merely try­ing to pro­tect their own tes­ti­cles – such as they are.

Enslave a man’s mind and the rest of him – includ­ing his tes­ti­cles– will fol­low; no more need for phys­i­cal chains.

UPDATE: John Alem­bil­lah Azumah’s bonafides: he is the Direc­tor of the Cen­tre for Islamic Stud­ies at the Lon­don School of The­ol­ogy. I would imag­ine that he has com­pe­tent secu­rity and, no doubt, he is in need of our prayers.

UPDATE 2014: I can’t find a link to this, but if I remem­ber cor­rectly, Dr. Azumah has long fled the UK.

This post originally appeared at my old blog in 2010–a response to a person who called me “dumb” and implied that IBaldilocks mini was a “traitor to my race” for opposing the building of the Ground Zero Mosque. That may seem ridiculous on its face, but it points to a deeper deception: that Islam is a “black religion” because of its widespread presence on the African continent.

We have seen the actions of groups like Boko Haram and ISIS as they conquer non-Muslims: they murder/castrate the men and boys and sell the women and girls into sex slavery. What fewer people know is that this is a 1400-year pattern for Islamic conquerors. They are merely following their leader.

And what a minority of black Americans know is that, for nearly that entire time period–well before the European slavers and colonialists noticed the continent–black Africa was continually subject to this Islamic onslaught, with the usual choice offered.  

One might call Islam “Africa’s death,” regardless of the choice each individual black African has made.

In 2008, I posted the following video via YouTube. It had been part of a series which exposed the truth about the Islamic Civilization with special emphasis on the horrors of the Trans-Saharan Slave Trade.  My intent was to counter the exhortations of Barack Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, and the like-minded who continue to excoriate America and the rest of Western Civilization for past sins against black African Slaves and Americans of African descent.

The owners of YouTube, however, have blocked the account of John Alembillah Azumah–the man interviewed in the series and the author of the book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa: A Quest for Inter-religious Dialogue. One can guess that some people were offended by the series–a state of affairs which often occurs when the truth is told.

This particular copy of the video, entitled “Muslim Black Slavery – Islam Slave History of Black Africa,” is now posted at MetaCafe by a third party.

Here’s Azumah’s preamble:

The success of Mohammedan Islam in deceiving, misinforming, deforming and contorting both history and reality over a period of almost fourteen hundred years has been astounding–that is, until now.

The greatest tragedy about this particular subject is that most of the descendants of African slavery–the black people in the Americas, around the world, as well as among the African blacks–are totally ignorant of the actual facts.

Before we lose the concentration of our visitors, I would like to make the following statement and then prove it: that the worst, most inhumane and most diabolical of the black African Slave Trade was initiated, refined, perpetrated and implemented by the Mohammedan Arabs and, later, aided and abetted by the black converts to Mohammedan Islam.

I predict that, as usual, the two subcultures–those of denial of facts and of Political Correctness–will attack us without once disproving a single statement and/or conclusion that we make.

And here are some pertinent excerpts:

While the European involvement in the African Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade to the Americas lasted for just over three centuries, the Arab involvement in the African Slave Trade has lasted fourteen centuries and, in some parts of the Mohammedan world, is still continuing to this day.

(…)

It should also be noted that black slaves were castrated based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite.

(…)

A comparison of the Islamic Slave Trade to the American Slave Trade reveals some extremely interesting contrasts.

While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Islamic Slave Trade: two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.

While the mortality rate of slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as ten percent, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Trans-Sahara[n] and East African Slave market was a staggering eighty to ninety percent.

(…)

While many children were born to slaves in the Americas–the millions of their descendants are citizens in Brazil and the United States of today–very few descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survived.

While most slaves who went to the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East were castrated and most of the children born to the women were killed at birth.

Azumah pronounces the denial of the facts concerning the on-going Islamic Slave Trade as ‘obscene.’

To those whose male ancestors survived American Slavery long enough to ensure that the former would be alive in the twenty-first century and, therefore, be able to refer to me as a House Negro for suspecting the motives of the putative builders of the “Ground Zero” Mosque, I feel pity.

That pity is mixed with a sense of astonishment, however, at this conclusion: that so many black people are so well indoctrinated with perpetual anger at the sins of America’s past, that they would ignore the more egregious sins of Islam’s present and desired future.  Hurling epithets and pretending that the opponents of the “Ground Zero” Mosque want to stifle freedom of religion is a lot easier than gathering the pertinent facts, connecting them, analyzing them and coming to a cogent conclusion, it seems.

On the other hand, perhaps such people have indeed concluded that Islam would like to expand its annihilation of those of African descent–with black men being the special and specified targets for annihilation.  Perhaps the slinging of epithets, etc. is merely a smokescreen–an insurance for the future.  Such people will be able to say to their future masters, “see? I stood up for the Ummah against that infidel, Ochieng.”

Maybe such people are merely trying to protect their own testicles–such as they are.

Enslave a man’s mind and the rest of him–including his testicles– will follow; no more need for physical chains.

UPDATE: John Alembillah Azumah’s bonafides: he is the Director of the Centre for Islamic Studies at the London School of Theology.  I would imagine that he has competent security and, no doubt, he is in need of our prayers.

UPDATE 2014: I can’t find a link to this, but if I remember correctly, Dr. Azumah has long fled the UK.
