Reader comment on item: Praising Military Slavery

Submitted by Mark D. (United States), May 20, 2010 at 20:45

------ Mu'min ad-Dassuqi softens and extols the Muslim slave system:

in Islam, slaves were raised properly, and great leaders emerged from them, especially in the era of the Mamluks who ruled the world. In other words, slaves were not treated in a manner that did not respect their humanity and dignity. -----

Oh, joy.

Did not respect their humanity and dignity?

Slavery in and of itself does not respect humanity and dignity.

It's wholly indefensible.

Once more, for emphasis.

Indefensible.
