Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: zafire, no mention of muslim slavery?

He was talking about whites enslaving blacks. You should say something about that, instead of changing the topic to Muslims enslaving blacks. The number of blacks enslaved by white slave trade, carried on from the West Coast of Africa, was far greater than the number enslaved by the Arab slave trade, carried on from Zanzibar on the east coast. There's no comparison. And many of those caught by Arabs were later bought by whites anyway.
