Skip to comments.Islam, the Religion of Slavery

The slow collapse of Dubai, a desert mirage built on oil money, human misery and the greed of Western businesses, reminds us once again of the fate of all slave economies in the end. But for all the skyscrapers in Dubai, the glittering avenues built by slave labor and the abundance of luxury American and European automobiles-- the story of Dubai and Saudi Arabia is very much an old story in a Muslim Middle East, of fat prosperous sheiks clutching their ill gotten gains to themselves and ruling over harems and companies of slaves, until the end comes.
Like Muslim Brotherhood derived terrorists using the latest Web 2.0 social media as part of a quest to drive humanity back into the dark ages, the Gulf States are a very old story with the external gilt and glitz of modernity. While the Muslim world may employ the tools and utilities of the 21st century, even mimic its terminology, it has never left its own dark ages... and its dominant religious and social movements are all geared toward making sure that it never does.
And while above the skyscrapers gleam in Dubai's night sky, below are the armies of foreign workers, some prosperous Western Dhimmis driving luxury cars who come to do all the higher labor that the native Emiratis lack the ability or will to do, and outnumbering them are the labor gangs of Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern workers who erect the edifices designed by Western architects to fool Western investors into believing that the backward totalitarian sheikdom is actually a modern free republic.

If they are driving luxury cars, they are not slaves.
One of my co-workers has resigned and is moving to Dubai. Go figure. Thanks ventanax5.
Missing the point again?
90 percent of those who are working for the Slavedrivers of Dubai would be classified as slaves.
Their passports are take, they are paid very little, if anything, and they often live in railway cars or cages.
Yes, they are slaves.
Westerners who go to work in Dubai are encouraged to take out loans for luxuries, but when they cannot repay the loans, they are imprisoned and their passports confiscated.
People from the sub-continent, Pakistan and Bangladesh are preyed upon by their own people, who facilitate their entry into arab countries, and who end up owing the facilitators huge sums of money they have no hope of ever paying back.
When they arive in Dubhai for example, their income is nothing like what is promised they will earn.
And then they can barely exist, let along send money home or pay their ‘benefactors’
Not much different really to the ‘people smugglers’ who crowd refugees onto leaky boats, take their money - and don’t give a d*mn of they drown.
Surely there are enough modern day practices to criticize Islam for without getting into the 18th and 19th century? After all, there aren’t too many religions with clean hands where the slave trade and slavery is concerned.
