Amazing Documentary About The Islamic Slave Trade

These devils doing the same evil now in Libya, Niger, Mauritania and Sudan today.

People need to realize this documentary was made in the 1960’s can you imagine what kind of brutality and dehumanization happened centuries ago, before the evil European came to Africa. The Arabs were, still are more brutal than the Europeans.

President Trump’s “Shithole“ remarks against Africa came, days after the vast majority of African states voted against the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Last night, during his State of the Union speech, President Trump renewed aid threat against countries opposing Jerusalem decision (Africans, in particular).

Last Sunday, the Arab League called for African states to reject Israel’s candidature for UN Security Council (UNSC) seat for 2019-2020.

What now? Will Africans continue demonstrating their solidarity with the same Arabs who are enslaving their children in the deserts of Libya, Niger, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia?

The colonial crimes committed by Arabs, against Africans, through Islam, very often go unchecked and unspoken under the guise of political correctness and avoidance of offending religious sentiments.

For the last 50 years, Africans had frequently been urged to embrace their Arab enemies as their brothers, and to join with them under some version of regional administrative union for „the victims„. Africans have their own matters and problems, they should not waste their time and energy in supporting or condeming entities outside of their continent, so, Africa stay away from the Arab Israeil conflict. Now, should black Africans of today allow these devilish advocates to prevail, then they have nobody to blame but themselves for whatever the Arabs do to them.

Some Important History Lesson

A Special from The New York Times, 1975

Africans Rebuff Arab Call For U.N. to Expel Israel

The Organization of African Unity, refused today to adopt a resolution calling for the expulsion of Israel from the United Nations.

Rebuffing Arab militants, it approved a milder version calling for moves “to reinforce the pressure exerted on Israel at the United Nations and its specialized agencies, including the possibility of eventually depriving it of its membership.”

This resolution, adopted at the closing session of the annual meeting of presidents and premiers of O.A.U. countries, was an unexpected setback for the Arab diplomatic campaign aganist Israel. Among those opposing a direct call for Israel’s expulsion from the United Nations was Egypt, which has been involved in negotiations for a second disengagement accord with Israel in Sinai.

Last month in Jidda, Saudi Arabia, the Arab militants won adoption by a conference of foreign ministers of 39 Islamic countries and the Palestine Liberation Organization of a resolution calling for the expulsion of Israel from the United Nations.

The resolution was recorded as having been adopted without dissent from any of the participants, among them Egypt.

Delegates at the O.A.U. conference here said that at one point during the Middle East debate the Libyan leader, Col. Muammar el‐Qaddafi, shouted that Egypt was failing to support the Palestinian cause. He also complained, delegates said, that President Anwar el‐Sadat of Egypt gave the issue so little priority that he left the session before the debate began last night.

President Idi Amin or Uganda, chairman of the O.A.U., who presided over the conference, was quoted as having asked Mohammed Riad, Mr. Sadat’s foreign affairs adviser, whether Egypt would support Israel’s expulsion from the United Nations. Mr. Riad was said to have replied In the negative.

The measure that was adopted was weaker than either of the two, proposals before the conference—one by Egypt asking that Israel be suspended until she withdrew from occupied Arab lands, and the other by the Palestine Liberation Organization calling for outright expulsion.

The adoption of the weekend version was interpreted as refleeting growing resentment among black Africans In the 42‐nation organization against what they considered inadequate Arab compensation for the effects of increased oil prices.

One member, Zaire, expressed opposition to any move to remove Israel from the United Nations.

However. Zaire allowed the action on the resolution to be recorded as adoption without dissent. The Zaire view was a reservation made afterward in accordance with Q.A.U. practice. Four other countries also presented reservations.

The meetinf, which opened Monday, was boycotted by Tanzania, Zambia and Botswana.

The conference actions included a decision to send a commission, to Angola to look into a possibility of establishing an O.A.U. peacekeeping force there.

On the question of southern Africa, a Geciaration was adopted endorsing further efforts to negotiate with whiteminority governments in Rhodesia and South Africa provided that liberation movements approved. This was a compromise between those countries opposed to any contacts with the white‐minority governrhents and those wanting a dialogue aimed at producing black rule.

TEL AVIV, Aug. 1. Israelis were heartened today when they learned that the conference of the Organization of African Unity in Kampala had bilked at adopting an Arab-sponsored resolution to exclude Israel from the United Nations.

The development was a pleasant surprise to experts in Jerusalem, whose earlier assessments were that the resolution would be adopted.

Officials said it appeared that the number of countries opposing the Arab initiative was growing.

The net test of the Arab initiative is due at the conference of nonaligned nations in Lima, Peru; where the Islamic world will be more strongly represented.

UNBELIEVABLE how much we know about the Atlantic and Roman slave trade, but barely anyone even knows about the 14 centuries of Arab Muslim slave trade with these insanely high death tolles, which included large numbers of African slaves. Africans must be teaching this in their schools too.

Arabs’ Mortal Hatred And Enslavement Of The Black Race

Dr. Azumah in his book: The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa provides several examples of Islam’s hatred of Blacks. There is the example in the hadith in which an Ethiopian woman laments her racial inferiority to Muhammad, who consoles her by saying, “In Paradise, the whiteness of the Ethiopian will be seen over the stretch of a thousand years.

No nation in Africa has suffered more in the hands of the Arabs than Ethiopia. It has been going on since Arabs first invaded Africa in the 7th century CE. Recently, with Libya supporting the people of Eritrea, they destroyed the basic structure of Ethiopia, to cut her from the sea and weaken this section of Africa, and eventually all of Africa, for further Arabization. They did this mercilessly with religion.

Ibn Sina (Avicenna 980–1037), Arab’s most famous and influential philosopher/scientist in Islam, described Blacks as “people who are by their very nature slaves.” He wrote: “All African women are prostitutes, and the whole race of African men are abeed (slave) stock.” He equated Black people with “rats plaguing the earth.” Ibn Khaldum, an Arab historian stated that “Blacks are characterized by levity and excitability and great emotionalism,” adding that “they are every where described as stupid.”

Muslim Arab and Persian literature depicts Blacks as “stupid, untruthful, vicious, sexually unbridled, ugly and distorted, excessively merry and easily affected by music and drink.” Nasir al-Din Tusi, a famous Muslim scholar said of Blacks: “The ape is more capable of being trained than the Negro.” Ibn Khaldun, an early Muslim thinker, writes that Blacks are “only humans who are closer to dumb animals than to rational beings.”

al-Dimashqi, an Arab pseudo scientist wrote, “the Equator is inhabited by communities of blacks who may be numbered among the savage beasts. Their complexion and hair are burnt and they are physically and morally abnormal. Their brains almost boil from the sun’s heat…..” Ibn al-Faqih al-Hamadhani painted this no less horrid picture of black people, “…..the zanj (the blacks) are overdone until they are burned, so that the child comes out between black, murky, malodorous, stinking, and crinkly-haired, with uneven limbs, deficient minds, and depraved passions…..”

After the Arabs had conquered Egypt and shortly after Muhammad’s death, they began demanding Nubian slaves from the south. This continued for 600 years. Dominated African kingdoms were forced to send on a regular basis, tributes of slaves to the Arab ruler in Cairo. From as early as the 6th century CE, they had developed slavery supply networks out of Africa, from the Sahara to the Red Sea and from Ethiopia, Somalia and East Africa, to feed demands for slaves all over the Islamic world and the Indian Ocean region. The African male slaves were castrated and used as domestic servants or to work the Sahara salt deposits or on farms all over the Islamic world.

The African female servants were continuously raped before being sold to households to be used as sex labour. Of springs from the illicit encounters were largely destroyed as unworthy to live. Between 650 CE and 1905 CE, over 20, 000,000 African slaves had been delivered through the Tans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world. Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his book: The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million more died en-route. A text from Dr. Azumah books, provides this quote from a Zanzibar observer about the travails of African slaves en-route to slave markets around the Arabic world.

Arab Muslims melting plastic on a naked Body of an African – in the year 2018

Arabs did not only start and sell African slaves from the 6th to the 19th century in the Islamic world; they were the principal raiders, merchants and middle men for the Atlantic slave trade. In fact, even now, hundreds of years later, millions of African settler slaves are still being discriminated against and treated as the scum of the earth (untouchables) in Pakistan, India, Iran, Iraq, and all the Muslim states of Asia, the Persian Gulf, and Northern Africa.

Arab enslavement of Black Africans continues to this day in the Muslim world, particularly in the Sudan, Niger, and Mauritania. To admit that it is a mistake would be to admit the fallibility of the Qur’an and bring its divine origin into question. Even today, Muslims act as if Islamic slavery was a favor done to the millions of unfortunate men, women and children who were forcibly uprooted from their native lands and sent to lives of sexual and mental servitude deep in the Islamic world.

Arab imperialism is worse than European imperialism, only that the latter is less subtle and more widespread. Europeans relatively, have some conscience, not much, but they are, at least, slightly more tolerant of dissent than the Arabs. Europeans did not completely destroy African cultures. Our history and religions yes, while our cultures and traditions were largely derided as primitive and banned, ignored or marginalized. In all areas conquered by Islam, the natives lost their ethnic names, religions, and peculiar way of life, to those of their Arab masters. The slaves or the religiously colonized Muslims are left bare, without a past or future of their own, a worse form of slavery and emasculation.

The Arabs stripped us totally of everything, our history, religions, cultures, names, languages and traditions. Their religion overwhelmed our cultures and traditions wherever they conquered us, to the extent that Africans in Arab governed states today, no longer bear their original African names, nor do they remember their history. They cannot even recall that they were Black, independent and thriving communities, before the Arabs colonized them. They cannot imagine that they were the original settlers and masters of the entire Arab world. All African natives in Arab governed countries, think that Allah ordained their inferior status to the Arabs.

Egypt is still so intimidated by its glorious Black African past that its Arab government would not allow thorough research into Egypt’s past. President Gamal Abdel Nasser falsified Egyptian history when he declared Egypt an Arab Republic. Anwar Sadat was forced to divorce his Black wife, denounce his Black children and marry a light-skin cousin before becoming Egypt’s President. Egyptian authorities refused to allow American film makers to make a film on the life of Anwar Sadat in Egypt on the ground that the actor chosen for Sadat’s role was Black.

When Morocco left the OAU in 1984, it aspired to become a member of the European Union. In Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea, Mauritania and the rest of the Arab world, Africans are treated as the scum of the earth. They are second-class citizens at the very best in their own countries. Blacks in these countries cannot aspire to positions of respect or authority. There are hardly Africans in high government positions in Arab governed African countries. Like Brazil, which is just as racially cruel against their Black natives, there is no legislation favoring slavery (except in Mauritania.) It is simply a way of life that’s all. Blacks do not really exist or at best are not humans.

Arabs themselves divide Africa into North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa to instigate a division and as long as the invaders continue to occupy our land and treat us as slaves in North Africa, the two segments of the continent cannot cohabit.

The Arab war against Africans and the Arabization of African lands that started in the 7th century CE. Arabs have since settled on one-third of Africa, pushing continuously southwards towards the Atlantic Ocean. Arabs’ racial war against Black Africa started with their occupation and colonization of Egypt between 637 and 642 CE, decimating the Coptic or Black population. Between 642 and 670 CE, more Arab invaders poured into Africa and occupied areas known today as Tunisa, Libya, Algeria and Morocco, where they physically eliminated most of the native (Berber) inhabitants. The Berbers that escaped death ran westwards and southwards towards the Sahara.

A traveller in Sudan observed in 1930 that “In the eyes of the Arab rulers of Sudan, the Blackslaves were simply animals given by Allah to make life of Arabs comfortable.” In 1962, the Arab Sudanese General, Hassan Beshir Nasr, while flagging off his troops to the war front against Black Africans in South Sudan, declared: “We don’t want these Blackslaves…….what we want is their land.”

The Arabs that invaded Africa and called Africans slaves in their own God-given land are worse than European colonisers. How ironic, if the Europeans stayed away from Africa, the destructive and cancerous nature of Arabness/Islam would have destroyed African nations by now.

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” Haile Selassie

CrueltyWhile Europeans targeted men in West Africa, the Arab slave trade primarily targeted the women of East Africa to serve as domestic slaves, wet nannies and sex-slaves in the infamous harems.

This trade trickled over millennia is estimated to have taken more than 10 million African via the Swahili coast to India, Saudi Arabia, China, and Turkey,

The trans-Saharan slave trade commenced late in the 7th century when Abdallah Ben Said, the King of Islamised Egypt, conquered via Jihad the Sudan – “the land of infidels” – and in 652 imposed on Sudanese King Khalidurat a treaty known as Bakht.

One of the clauses of the treaty was the compulsory annual supply by the Sudanese king of hundreds of African slaves to the Muslim king of Egypt. The European trans-Atlantic slave trade took off 10 centuries later, in 1693.

while the trans-Atlantic slave trade lasted for four centuries (1693-1884), the trans-Saharan slave trade continued for 17 centuries (652-1960).

While there is a lot material of the trafficking of African slaves to Europe and the Americas, there is little to nothing about an earlier trade – the sale of African slaves in the Arab Middle East.

One reason for that is that there are very few descendants of African slaves in Arab Middle East (and most are not influential), so there’s no one to fight to keep their memory alive.

Even leading African scholars like East Africa’s own Prof. Ali Mazrui tend to say little about this sale of Africans to Arab Middle East – in his case, because it raises awkward personal questions.

The question then is, why did African slaves perish in the Arab Middle East? One reason is that while in Europe and the Americas African slaves were taken to work in plantations and industries, in the Middle East they were mostly domestic labor.

There were similarities between the slave trades. Some Arab scholars, such as Ibn Khaldun, justified the trans-Saharan slave trade by interpreting some sections of the Koran that ‘authorized’ the enslavement of African ‘infidels’ by Arab slave merchants, the ‘chosen race’.

The perpetuation of African slaves was fundamentally assured by women slaves who were indiscriminately coupled to men without their consent. Some women stolen from Africa were stolen to serve the infamous Arabian harems (exploited as sex-slaves); their children were born to Arab fathers, and thus would serve to purify the week Arabian genetic makeup, as Arabs mostly interbreed within close family members and relatives.

Partly for that reason, the African slaves were castrated. As eunuchs, they couldn’t have sex with their “masters’ wives, daughters, sisters, aunts, and cousins. Some (not all) of their owners had another vested in turning them into eunuchs – the slaves became rounded like women. So in the night the Arab chiefs would be in the embrace of their wives or mistresses, and in between they would be perched on the backs on the eunuchs.

The even more tragic thing about eunuchs, it that to create one, according to some accounts, you needed 20 men. The other 19 perished after castration, from infections and bleeding to death!

Thirdly, unlike the trans-Atlantic slave trade, the one to the Middle East included very few women. Thus even if the African slaves in the Arab world weren’t castrated, they would not have been able to reproduce, because it would have been nearly impossible to find a female companion.

Castration of numbers of male slaves by Arab merchants was a prominent feature of the trans-Saharan slave trade.

The castration exercise resulted to widespread of homosexuality as well. But the Arabs noted that black male slaves lack self-control and steadiness of mind and they are overcome by fickleness, foolishness and ignorance.

Castrated male slaves were purchased by rich Arab kings and princes and employed as security agents to protect harems where their wives and concubines were caged. The castration process described in the book of Senegalese historian and anthropologist, Tidiane N’Diaye, “Le Genocide Viole”, is barbaric and inhumane.

The Conspiracy to Destroy Ethiopia: The Role of Arab States

By Tecola Hagos December 24, 2001

ArabConspiracyStarting with the rise of the Ottoman Turkish Empire, the Islamic nations of the Middle East have tried to destroy Ethiopia several times. One such challenge that nearly succeeded in such effort was the Ottoman Turks sponsored Ahmed Gragn’s devastating overthrow of the Christian Ethiopian Kingdom of Libna Dengel. It is not clear whether or not Ahmed Gragn saw himself as subject of the Ottoman Turks. I believe he did. The name Ahmed Gragn was a corruption of his real name “Imam Ahmed bin Ibrahim Al Ghazi,” and might suggest that Ahmed Gragn might have originated from Gaza of a Palestinian extraction; furthermore, he was not left-handed either as his Amharized name indicated. [32] Ahmed Gragn was provided with weapons, military personnel et cetera by the Ottoman Turks.[33]

The Turks had failed repeatedly in the past in their effort to occupy the lowlands of Ethiopia up to that period. In fact, Ethiopia never suffered in her entire existence of thousands of years a devastation on the scale Ahmed Gragn caused in his twelve years of rampage, looting and burning of churches, random killing of tens of thousands of Christian men, women, and children. On the other hand, despite the belligerency of some of the Ethiopian emperors and kings, one can say that Ethiopian soldiers usually were engaged in defense of the nation against attacks by armies of foreigners including armies of Moslem nations, or chasing out marauders such as nomadic Bejas mostly from the Sudan attacking settled Christian villages, Monasteries, Churches et cetera in the Northern part of Ethiopia (Eritrea).

In the recent past, soon after Gamal Abdel Nasser took power in 1952, he concentrated his effort to control the Nile Basin, first he aimed to create some super state made up of Ethiopia (Eritrea), Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, and Uganda, with Egypt in control.[35] The real target was Ethiopia and the Blue Nile. The Arab governments in North Africa and the Middle East have played a crucial and destructive role in the weakening, sabotaging, and finally in the dismantling of Ethiopia.[36] Egypt has a long standing hostility towards Ethiopia from the time of the Pharaohs.[37] The source of the problem is the water of the Blue Nile or “Tikur Abaye” in Ethiopic/Amharic meaning the “big black father” that is the life blood of Egypt and the Sudan as well. Without water and silt taken from Ethiopia by the Blue Nile, Egypt and the Sudan would not have sustained any significant population. For example, in 1875 an ex-Confederate General in the service of the Egyptian Khedive, Ismail (Pasha), wrote in his memoir that the center of Egypt’s fear and interest was the control of the Blue Nile. “The khedive himself, when taxed with the intention of absorbing or annexing Abyssinia in whole or in part, referred to this, when he said that, as nature already was sending him down the best part of Abyssinia, he had no desire for the residue.”

What is remarkable and often overlooked is the fact that Ethiopia never attempted to divert the waters of the Blue Nile or any other water body that flows into the Nile despite repeated provocation by Egypt. Ethiopia had sought only peaceful coexistence with neighboring countries. If Ethiopia goes to war, it was always for the right reasons: defending itself, and its people from foreign aggression. As we shall observe in the following paragraphs, Egyptian antagonism towards Ethiopia never ceased, nor diminished in its intensity during the last fifty years. If at all, it has become more perverse and open.

In the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, the most blatant and open attack against Ethiopia was spearheaded by Egypt starting with Ali Mohammed, followed by Ismail Pasha, then Gamal Abdel Nasser and on to the present leader Mubarak. Buotros Ghali, a nominally Coptic Christian, in the best tradition of his family’s service to Moslem leaders of Egypt, has excelled them all because he succeeded in dismembering Ethiopia, weakening its sovereignty, checkmating its development prospect, and insuring the exclusive use of the great bounty of the Blue Nile for Egypt. Gamal Nasser, a megalomaniacal leader, who came into power through a coupe d’etat, through his government controlled Radio Cairo launched the most perverse attack on Haile Selassie’s government trying to instigate the Moslem population of Ethiopia who were living a far more integrated life within Ethiopia than was the case in Egypt with Egyptian Coptic Christians let alone other Christians living in Egypt. Furthermore, WoldeAb Wolde Mariam, the ex-President of the Eritrean Labour Unions, was given a special radio program as part of Radio Cairo to broadcast into Eritrea his vehemently anti-Ethiopia diatribe. Incidentally, WldeAb is from Axum, Tygrie, with a violent hatred of Shoan Amharas that drove him to extreme views. People who claimed far superior indigenous family root to “Eritrea” finally pushed him out of power in the skirmish within the liberation movement. The family of Boutros Ghali, the former Secretary General of the United Nations, were well known for their anti-Ethiopian activities starting from the time of Fuad I with sustained denigrating pieces in newspaper and pamphlets. In particular the control of Asseb and thus the entire Red Sea was one other great motivating factor for Egypt. For Ethiopia having an outlet is not just a political strategy but defines its very existence.

The activities of those Arab nations were not limited to providing airtime for self-styled broadcasters. For Example, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt provided training, weapons, and money to the nascent Eritrean liberation movement, especially after the office of Eritrean Liberation Front, ELF was opened in Cairo in the 1960s. The Arab world interfered in the internal affairs of Ethiopia despite the fact that the Arab world has not been able to solve both its economic and political problems for years. All of the activities of these Arab nations and Pakistan included violated numerous principles of international law, resolutions, conventions, and treaties of the United Nations. In fact, some of these violations would even be considered as violations of “peremptory norms of international law.” Judge Schwebel summarized the principle and norm of international law that “…it is not lawful for a foreign State or movement to intervene in that struggle with force or to provide arms, supplies and other logistical support in the prosecution of armed rebellion.”

Agreements were entered between Britain and Egypt, Egypt and the Sudan allocating the waters of the Nile – the Blue Nile – without regard to the rights of Ethiopia the only source country whose water is being apportioned by third parties.[42] It is to be recalled that 85 % (during the dry seasons) and over 95% (during the rainy seasons) of the water of the Nile that finally reaches the Mediterranean Sea originates from the highlands of Ethiopia. In addition, millions of tons of rich fertile Ethiopian soil is yearly delivered by the Blue Nile to Egypt and the Sudan. There is no question that this bounty of Ethiopia is the center of the problem of all this posturing, and century old effort on the part of Egypt to destroy Ethiopia. This is a clear case of a dog biting the hand that feeds it. Judge Schucking in his dissenting opinion in the Wimbledon Case stated that a treaty signed by two nations that affects the legitimate rights of third parties is invalid in regard to such third parties. Judge Schuking was simply affirming a norm of international law, and his dissention was on other grounds.

What is tragic in all of this is the fact that a number of Ethiopian and Eritrean Moslems did not fully grasp the great morality, sociability, and tolerance of Christian Ethiopians. By contrast, if you consider the utter bigotry and intolerance of Arab leaders and to a great extent ordinary Arabs have for Christians and non-Arabs in their communities, and in neighboring nations, one is left with great dismay and disgust. For example, no Church is to be found in Saudi Arabia, a country of utterly anachronistic political, social, and cultural system, and often with primitive and barbaric practice of penal law.[44] One must not forget the fact that the Arabs were the major (maybe even the only) slavers in that part of the world who benefited from enslaving Africans in huge numbers bringing in death and destruction to millions of Africans for centuries all the way down to our time. [The irony of all that dehumanization resulted, centuries later, in established aristocratic dynasties made up of descendants of children of African Slaves in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Kuwait et cetera.]

Even in Egypt, a country presumed to have a more “enlightened” government and population, Coptic Christians are abused, their daughters kidnapped and raped, their sons subdued, disfranchised, economically controlled, and politically oppressed.[45] No one will find in Egypt a comparable quality and depth of freedom of religion as one finds in Ethiopia. Ethiopian Christians in Egypt or even Egyptian Coptes in Egypt do not have a fraction of the freedom enjoyed by Moslems in Ethiopia. Ethiopian Moslems in Ethiopia build Mosques anywhere they please some times they even build Mosques right next to Churches, unheard of event anywhere in the Arab world–just try to build a church next to a Mosque any where in Cairo or Alexandria, Mecca or Medhina, and see what happens. By contrast, Ethiopian Moslems practice their religion openly anywhere in Ethiopia without restriction either from the Ethiopian government or the community. Such is the bounty of a mother country that has been a target for destruction by these Arab nations. It is not a favor to Christian Ethiopians that Moslem Ethiopians should defend Ethiopia against Arab nations, but it is in their own best interest and national duty to do so in order to maintain such a tolerant, bountiful, and great nation prosper and be self sufficient.

No one molests, abuses, kidnaps, or enslaves any Moslem any where in Ethiopia. Other than abusing their own women, turning them into either some form of subhuman reproductive machine or subservient silent victims, most of these Arab nations practice a modern form of slavery on people from other parts of the world who are lured to work in the Middle East. And all other Arab nations such as, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Syria et cetera are all closed systems with oppressive systems of governments, and specially obnoxious to non-Moslems. The types of religious oppression and ethnic bigotry that exist in these Arab nations may be the worst in the world. Most human rights declarations, resolutions, covenants, and conventions are routinely discarded and violated in such Arab countries. The reports of international human rights organizations such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch et cetera are replete with horror stories of religious persecution, oppression, abuse, and human rights violations. Even governments such as that of the United States could not turn a blind eye to the human rights violations and religious persecution of Christians going on in Arab countries.

Ethiopia is like a precious jewel that one ought to defend and protect. For Ethiopian Moslems there is no better society where they can live with their human dignity intact and share in the political, cultural, and economic life of a nation as an integral and important part thereof. Ethiopian Moslems have always lived with relatively better economic strength compared to Christian Ethiopians. Ethiopian Moslems must not think in terms of religious solidarity with Arabs against their own fellow citizens (Ethiopians), when in reality they will also be treated no better than a “slave” in Arab nations because of their color. One must remember that Arabs in general were the first organized slavers and slave owners of African people in history. Millions of Africans suffered in the hands of Arab slavers outside of Africa. Ethiopians were also victims of Arab slavery to this day.

This is where (The League of Arab States) Issaias Afwerki is trying to take the people of “Eritrea” of whom at least 50% are Orthodox Christians sharing the same religious tradition as their brothers and sisters in the rest of Ethiopia. He already has his foot in the door; Eritrea is listed as “Other Countries of Interest/Importance.” Should not Ethiopia be worried, as it always has done through out its thousands of years of history, about the welfare of its Christian family members of the people of Akale Guzi, Hamassen, Serie and else where in “Eritrea”? Of course, it must. After all both Issaias and Meles are passing mirages, what endures is Ethiopia. One must take into account the fact that Issaias is a “kenisha” meaning a protestant, and Meles is an atheist; neither seem to appreciate the great contribution of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to the national unity, sovereignty, and freedom of the people of Ethiopia.

Haile Selassie, Mengistu, and now Meles failed to promote the enviable record of the religious tolerance that exists in Ethiopia. Leaders of Ethiopia’s successive governments were too timid and did not effectively counter the propaganda war waged against the people of Ethiopia and their nation. Those leaders were more interested in brutalizing and violating the rights of Ethiopian citizens more than facing up to real enemies that were openly undermining Ethiopia and attempting to destabilize its governments. Just in the last few months, the government of Saudi Arabia has cracked down on Christians form different countries including some Ethiopians, who live and work in Saudi Arabia, for worshiping in their own private homes. The action of the Saudi government violated numerous human rights conventions, covenants, and resolutions of the United Nations, including the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Nothing has been done by the government of Meles Zenawi about such intolerable action of the government of Saudi Arabia.

Ethiopia is faced with religious movements or movements based on Islamic religion in the Ogden, Bali, Arisi, Afar, and Eritrea bankrolled by oil money from neighboring Arab nations that have become very destructive. In most instances these movements are inadequate, their vision shallow, and their goals anachronistic. Why would anyone from Ethiopia want to join a group of nations whose human rights record is dismal, and whose government structure is dictatorship of the worst kind, and whose national economic wealth is treated as a private estate? Just recently, the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the United States at an interview with MSN Reporter in connection with the September 11th, catastrophe, when asked about corruption in the Kingdom, (he) answered bluntly and with his usual I-know-it-all arrogance, “So What? We did not invent corruption.” Such are the leaders of the Arab world. All I wrote about in this section is not due to hate or animosity I harbored against Arabs and Egyptians, but to remind all concerned to be aware of the type of neighbors we have and to be on our guard against our historic enemies and those who wish us ill, and in fact, who have caused us a lot of problems. It is the duty of all responsible governments to inform fully their respective citizens all serious dangers. The government of Meles Zenawi is, in fact, engaged in actively suppressing information on the issue of the conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Western nations in recent times seem to see Ethiopia as a disposable entity. Ethiopia lost considerable prestige and influence with the military takeover of the 1974. The fact that the military dictatorship forged close relationship with the Soviet Union made the situation even worse. Other than the open lust of Italy to colonize Ethiopia, England, France, even Tsarist Russia, all had entertained some colonial fantasy. So-called “friends” of Ethiopia such as England and the United States are wolves disguised as sheep. In both nations racism is still well and alive; it now manifests itself more vividly in their dealings with far off countries such as Ethiopia. Since the Second World War, both the United States and England consistently have abused the hospitality, good will, hope, and friendship of Ethiopia. And now these two countries in collaboration with Arab nations are trying to destroy an ancient and proud people by forcing on them some unjust and illegal demarcation of boundaries that will bottle up over seventy million people and promote violence and conflict in the region for a long time. What the governments of the two nations are doing is particularly insidious considering the fact that England is an island with thousands of miles of coast, and the United States even has incorporated in one of its national songs the fact that it boasts not one coastal territory but two: “from sea to shining sea.”
