Farrakan's book demanding reparations from Jews - excellent precedent

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews

Submitted by Ray (United States), Aug 17, 2010 at 14:54

I was in surprised to read about the demand of Mr. L.F. from the Jewish community for reparations. I think that is great. It will pave the way for future demands of Reparations from Muslim Communities the world over ... Mr. L.F. forgets that it was his religion. Islam, that allowed Slavery to be committed to being with, and many Slave Traders in the East Africa region were Muslim Traders. In fact, Islam has a very old tradition of Slave Trading ...

In addition to possible demand from Reparations from Muslim Communities for the Slavery wrongs committed in the past, and still being committed today in many Muslim societies, many religious groups can also claim to have been wronged by Islam : the Zoroastrian community of Iran who were forced into exile into India ( or convert to Islam ! ), the Buddhist communities of Indo-Pakistan who had their great Statutes blown away by the Taliban ( once again, Students of Islam and self-declared True Muslims ) ... and on and on

I am glad to know that such a book exists. .. it will be grounds for others to start demanding reparations from Muslims and from Islam !!
