9 Feb 2012 The community of black Bedouins ("Afro-Bedouins") in the desert town of Rahat faces racial and class discrimination deeply rooted in the social conventions of the traditional Bedouin community in the Negev. The black Bedouins' roots lie in East Africa, where they were captured by Arab slave traders and sold in the markets of Zanzibar and Saudi Arabia to white Bedouin tribes. These markets operated until the early 20th century; many of those abducted and their offspring continued to serve as slaves in Palestine until 1948 (when Israeli law came into force), hence they are still referred to as "abed" or "abda" (Arabic for slave, servant). It is a minority that has endured deprivation and oppression. Their negative image pervades the local social, family, and education systems, preventing their personal as well as professional advancement and limiting their independence and freedom of choice.
Always wanted a couple of slaves.
Girl slaves about 24, one from Iceland, one from Italy.
But then there is that politically correct and legal thingy.
You hardly ever hear the history of Islamic slavery.
Reports say it was six times greater in scope and 100 times greater in its brutality.
All slavery is repugnant, but American slavery pales in relative comparison. Perhaps America’s recrimination is somewhat deserved based upon the high ideals and standards we set for the world, but just because the scope of the benefits for Islamic memebership only apply to its adherants, the plight of lesser beings (EVERY NON-MUSLIM IN THE WORLD) seems irrellevant.
The Muslims should at least be recognized as having been involved in slavery and particularly Black African slavery.
Comparing Western slavery to Muslim slavery... is like comparing someone who owns a family pet to the owner of a dog fighting ring.
Well-written LDS fiction about life in the Arabian Peninsula December 24, 2010
White Bedouin (paler skinned Arabs) enslaving Blacks, who became Afro Bedouins, or Black Bedouins, or “black palestinians...”
Indeed, it is Farrakhan and Co. who try to rewrite history, for obvious reasons.
I doubt if that is accurate. In 1948 the law in Palestine derived from the British mandate, and slavery would not have been legal.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Middle-aged man jokes to wife: I’m tired of being a 140. I want to be a 220.
Wife retorts: You’re not wired for it.
Yes, out there in the field, morning ‘til night, shearing sheep for massa, while he gets frisky with his favorite slave Fatima in the tent as she tries to make pita bread. Then there was the book, burned as blasphemous, Incidents in the Life of an Abda.
Too funny eleutheria5.
To be honest I installed the fire alarms at Florida Atlantic University in the dorms when I was only about 35, many years ago.
When I did the female dorm I felt old as dirt because there were all these young nubile hotties running around all over and when they spoke I realized they were simply attractive children.
