Do Alyar knows anything about all the lost slave ship, the corsairs used be arabs to raid seaside towns

in north-south europe from the early 1500 to the 1920es. 1,25 million WHITE SLAVES have been sold in north african slavemarkets. the corsair shipwrecks are a great evidence to that litle be the muslims very repressed slavetrade, only 5 procen survived. Of cause also it justyfies the colonising of nort africa and the mideast, that themself colonised europe 3 times before that.

So to Alyar yes the arabs are not so different, mabye they just have a more nationalistic racism, and a more selective memory of repressing guilt.
