>Slaves were not simply sold by Arabs to Europeans. In fact the Portuguese, Dutch, etc, bought them directly from African ports.

Hello: your masters the Arabs were the biggest slave traders not just in East but also in West Africa and how come you did not know that? even your so called prophet owned slaves

They even have not only one word for ' a slave' in Arabic but three words

1. 3abd

2. raqiq

3. mamluuk

How disgusting!

>Women are not referred to as animals in the Quran,

Oh speaking of slaves your Allah tells us that Muslims can rape them! How disgusting and Allah tells us that a man can have sex with his wife even if he has to force himself on her! How disgusting

>nor are slaves referred to as such

Really? then how come Allah does not say that

ina al-3ubudiyya mamno3a fi al-islam

Oh let me help you: Slavery is forbidden in islam

Any guesses?
