Dear Nissim,

I like people -like- Dr Pipes who bring up something opposite to what I think and makes me question my ideas before commenting on his. On the other hand, people like you Nissim have dry dreams and what ever they hear from grannies they come to use it as a valid idea. Here is your correction:

1- you said: ""One just has to remind the black people of America that it was Muslem slave merchants who brought them and sold them for slavery in the first place. ""

No my friend, it was not the Muslims who sold the blacks. In some areas Like Bukinafaso for instance, blacks were sold by their black masters who initially captivated them from different other enemy tribes. Most of those were Pagans and Animists. In other places like nowaday Liberia they were directly captivated from surrounding tribes and sent over to the states by the white supremacists. Apartheid is not a Muslim phenomenon, I would not say Christian either, but it is a white supremacist phenomenon. All of us know the strong relationship the South African supremacist regime had with a state in the middle east...And by the way, Dick Cheney opposed the release of Neslon Mandela from his exile in the UK.

2- you said: "Second in the Koran and in the Arabic language there is no word identifying black people other than Slave. (Abid) In hebrew they are recognized as early as king David as "Kushi" a person orgininated from "Cush land" ,or Africa. Today too, black slaves are captured and sold in Sudan and black Americans do not see that""

Listen, the first prayer caller Muazen of Islam was Black and his name was Bilal. Abid or slaves in the Kuran meant who ever is a slave. They used to have Persian slaves and Roman slaves. Not to forget, the Ottomans enslaved the Greeks, the Slavs and the Armenians -which a historical issue I criticise in the so called Muslim Empire- but the aim here is to prove you that color is no argument. Give one verse in the OT ot the Talmudic script that refers to the Blacks!! Also you can explain to me what Goya and Goyim (plural) mean and what Jizya do they have to pay!

...
later,
Submitting....
