Dr Pipes,

For readers interested in reading more about the Zanj (the word Zanj is really the N word in English) rebellion here is an apologetic review in Arabic, however it is worth reading. The readers can use googletranslate

And here is a scholarly study of this tragic atrocity against victims of the imperialism of the Arabs and in this case the Bantu speaking black slaves, captured by Arab/Muslim slave traders from the eastern coast of Africa.

It is not surprising to realize that the first extant monument of Islam is a tombstone of a certain Abd al-Rahman ibn Khayr (dated 651-652 AD) and it located in Aswan Egypt. So what was he doing in Aswan Egypt? He must have been hunting Nubian slaves!

It is also worth mentioning that the most desired slave by the Arabs was a white woman and even Muhammad told his followers to fight in Tabuk so they can have sex with Banat al-Asfar (the yellow girls and read it as blonde women)!

Any comments Mr Wahhaj?
