The current wrath directed against anything or anyone having had anything to do with slavery or even racial discrimination includes destroying historical memorials and monuments as well as changing names that have stood for more than a century. Much of it has been focused on white nominally Christian males, mostly of Anglo-Saxon stock, understandable as the United States was a child of Great Britain and a majority of the country’s leaders for nearly two centuries came from families descended from the British Isles.

Slavery in the United States version is, of course, seen in black and white terms but slavery in a broader historical context is much more complicated. There have been slaves since ancient times through the eighteenth century in many countries and most of them have been white. Sometimes they were called something different. Indentured servants were de facto slaves, as were the serfs in Russia, who were tied to the land and were not liberated until 1861.

The very word slave comes from Slav, as many of the slaves in the Middle Ages were from the Slavic parts of the Balkans bordering on the Adriatic, where mostly Muslim seagoing raiders would attack coastal villages and carry off the inhabitants. Italy was likewise afflicted and the numerous small castles and improvised forts along the Italian and Croatian coastlines were intended to providing a refuge for villagers against the corsair slavers.

In the United States currently progressives of all types and colors are flocking to the revolutionary banner hoisted by Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other associated groups. Not surprisingly, given the liberal leanings of American Jews as well as their historical connections, Jewish groups have been actively engaged in the ongoing movement for racial justice. American Jews have played major roles historically in the founding and financial support of some of the most important civil rights organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). In 1909, Henry Moscowitz was a co-founder the NAACP. Photos of the boards of directors of the various organizations well into the 1970s frequently reveal a majority of white Jews seated together with minority blacks. Kivie Kaplan was, for example, the national president of the NAACP between 1966 and 1975.

But this characterization of Jews as benefactors for the civil rights movement has also produced some curious omissions in the accepted historical narrative of who did what to whom in the slavery trade. It is well established, though never taught in schools, that Jews from Britain and Holland were involved in the African slave trade that prevailed after the European discovery of the Americas. In the United States, concentrations of Jews in the American south were in slave trading centers, notably in Charleston South Carolina, Savannah Georgia, Richmond Virginia and in New Orleans Louisiana. Many of the Jews themselves owned slaves.

The debate over Jewish involvement in both the business side of the slave trade as well as in actually possessing slaves comes down to “proportionality.” As the historical record makes clear that Jews in the south were engaged in both the importing and selling slaves as well as exploiting slave labor, the question becomes whether they were central to the process or just one of many identifiable groups that were peripherally involved in what was a major segment of the southern economy. The issue became extremely heated in the 1990s when mostly black academics argued that the Jewish role was pivotal while mostly Jewish professors responded that it was insignificant. In March 1995 the American Historical Association (AHA) got involved by issuing its first ever “policy resolution”, coming strongly down on the Jewish side of the argument, which should surprise no one. AHA argued that it was wrong to use historical analysis to vilify one group before citing a memo by two Jewish professors which asserted that the role of their co-religionists had been marginal.

For those who are interested in more on the discussion, the following article might be helpful, though it is on a Jewish website, cites only Jewish sources for it debunking of the idea that Jews might have been heavily engaged in the slave trade, and also brings in the most disreputable sources that say the contrary. It nevertheless concedes that Jews were involved in the slave trade and also possessed slaves, though it seeks to minimize the extent to which that was true. Much more interesting is a short book by a distinguished Wellesley History Professor Tony Martin “The Jewish Onslaught: Despatches from the Wellesley Battlefront.” Martin describes in some detail how he was subjected to a “hysterical campaign” by Jewish organizations and fellow academics to have him discredited and fired after he assigned to his class on African-American history a short reading on the Jewish role in antebellum slavery.

Be that as it may, everyone should be aware that delving around in the past can be a messy business with no easy answers and little in the way of lines drawn between right and wrong. But in this case, the current unrest brings one around to a chap named Judah Benjamin. Judah was born in the West Indies to a British-Jewish family before winding up in Charleston and eventually New Orleans, where he became a lawyer and made a fortune. He was elected to the U.S. Senate from Louisiana. Among other investments, he owned a sugar cane plantation that included 140 slaves.

In March of 1861, Benjamin was named Attorney General of the Confederacy by President Jefferson Davis, whom Benjamin knew from the Senate. Davis would sometimes say that Benjamin was “the brains of the Confederacy.” That same year, Benjamin was also named Confederate Secretary of War, a post that he later resigned to become Secretary of State, a position that he held for the remainder of the conflict. It was the second most powerful position in Richmond’s Confederate bureaucracy.

When the Confederacy fell, Benjamin fled to London and eventually to Paris, where he rebuilt his fortune by again practicing law. Benjamin died in Paris in 1884 at the age of 72. He was buried in the Paris Père Lachaise cemetery with a simple headstone inscribed “Phillipe Benjamin.” In 1936, the United Daughters of the Confederacy paid for a monument to be placed over his grave.

So, the question becomes, with BLM and other wreckers trying to destroy America’s historical monuments, to include those commemorating the Founding Fathers, Union Commander Ulysses S. Grant, Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Columbus, Catholic saint Junipero Serra and even abolitionist Hans Christian Heg, why is it that Judah Benjamin has somehow been missed? He was a slave owner and worked as a lawyer in New Orleans where there was a thriving slave market as well as an economy built around cotton exports, which were driven by slave labor. He eventually became the number two man in the southern Confederacy, which is being regularly denounced as fighting a war to maintain slavery.

Well, of course the answer is quite simple. No politician or journalist who wants to stay employed would dare to publicly link Jews and slavery. BLM is also extravagantly funded by various guilt ridden foundations and other folks who are no doubt sensitive to the fact that there are certain issues that cannot be raised, and the people with their hands out know perfectly well what they can and cannot do or say to keep the money flowing.

For what it’s worth, there are a few monuments to Judah Benjamin sitting around just waiting to be trashed. In 1948, Charlotte, North Carolina’s two Jewish congregations, Temple Israel and Temple Bethel, erected a marker on South Tyron Street at the site of the demolished house of merchant Abraham Weil where Judah Benjamin and Jefferson Davis found shelter in April 1865 as they fled the northern army. To their credit, the congregations are now seeking to have the memorial removed.

Also of note is the 5-foot-high pink marble column topped by a sundial located in Sarasota, Florida at the point where Benjamin escaped from the United States. The monument is inscribed “Near this spot on June 23, 1865, Judah P. Benjamin, Secretary of State of the United Confederacy, set sail for a foreign shore.”

Yet another stone marker is located at 9 West Main Street in Richmond, Virginia, identifying the location of Benjamin’s residence during the Civil War. Another stone marker can be found in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It recalls how Benjamin “attended Fayetteville Academy on this site.” There is still another stone monument in Bradenton Florida erected by the Judah P. Benjamin chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy and in North Carolina there is a Highway Historical Marker Program plaque that marks the site of Benjamin’s no longer existing boyhood home.

But the most impressive historic site commemorating Benjamin’s legacy is the Judah P. Benjamin Confederate Memorial at Gamble Plantation in the town of Ellenton, Florida, south of St. Petersburg. The historic site is maintained as a state park by the Florida Department of Natural Resources and also by the Judah P. Benjamin Chapter No. 1545 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. It is the only surviving antebellum plantation in central and south Florida and includes the mansion and gardens as well as a visitors’ center. A large bronze memorial plaque commemorates Benjamin. Nevertheless, the connection with Benjamin is admittedly tenuous as he only sought refuge there briefly in 1865 during his flight to England.

    You’ll have to tell them about the memorials, and give them directions. They’re busy frying bigger fish right now, but maybe the mop-up crew can get to it later.

    Hopefully, there’s a big statue in an urban setting, easily accessible by bus or train. That little stone in the grass you pictured is hardly worth the effort. So much hate, so little time.

    Oh, get real. The slaves never did any meaningful work. They lounged around, like they do today. Genes don’t change that fast in 200 years.

    But this characterization of Jews as benefactors for the civil rights movement has also produced some curious omissions in the accepted historical narrative

    They were benefactors in the movement to deprive legislatures of the right to choose what is taught in their states’ schools, losing in Scopes, but finally winning in Epperson, and sack-dancing with further victories. Bryan’s Anglo-Protestant science is now banned in schools, and just whisper the words “intelligent design”, and see how fast the New York Jews at the ACLU come knocking at your door.

    The “historical omission” is how few at are willing to defend Bryan, even those who share his politics.

    Thanks for the Mr. Pat Buchanan take on dealing with issues. It’s always a refreshing look to have issues placed in context. And if not for the fact that this has been done ad nauseum on the subject, it would be interesting. One could also not that historically slavery was a reviled practiced and slaves across the world historically were known to escape and even engage in out right revolts, indentured or not.

    But what is unconscionable is the attempt by US citizens to embrace this tactic. To do so renders the country as barren of its declared purpose as the nation for which we engaged in war and distanced ourselves from Europe in general. Of course slavery is as old as humans so t seems. And absolutely it has existed as utter filth brutality against the backdrop of more benign systems. But that is not our measure. Our measure is written in pen on paper. And based on that writ of ideals others have followed suit.

    I think we should embrace our faults as we do our loftier selves. but retelling the broad scope of slavery – when we as a nation our founded in principles that reject the notion out right seems a strange response to the issues of what our symbols represent.

    “Well, of course the answer is quite simple. No politician or journalist who wants to stay employed would dare to publicly link Jews and slavery.”

    It is simple, most people have no idea who you are talking about. He is not of the stature of a Gen Jeb Stuart, Gen. Stonewall Jackson, Governor Sam Houston or even Nat Turner. We brokered our nation over the backs of black people. there were other issues of contention, but none so vital as that which caused us to contradict the very purpose of nationhood. As one who would rather embrace all things national good and ill, I am hard pressed to support ripping down symbols of that compromise – even the compromise was brokered by Jews.

  12. Instead of toppling statues and monuments, the racist and fascist elements of the “Black lives matter” movement should turn against the modern slaveholders and their paymasters. Not only do the big multinational companies exploit people of color in the Third World by paying them nearly nothing but also the big Tec giants or Amazon are hiding their liberal racism by supporting the vandalism. What would they say if the wrath will turn against them?

    Modern slave markets in Libya and elsewhere are mushrooming up thanks to the regime change of the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton regime. One can buy a black slave from 100 up to 500 US Dollars. The rioters in the US should move to Libya to sweep up the mess Obama and Clinton created. If they don’t watch out, they could end up on a slave market themselves.

    It appears that a move is afoot to change ‘history’, in order to allow only ‘approved’ attacks on slave-owners and traders. As the author of this piece rightly points out, if such a person was Jewish, they are – but of course- guiltless (their very Jewishness appears always to ensure such an outcome). But I have just discovered, having read this piece, that this re-writing of history works both ways.

    Liverpool slave owner and trader James Penny would appear to be one such example, whereby an undoubtedly ‘guilty’ slave-trader has been absolved in order to prevent a most unfortunate conundrum. Penny was a prominent man in Liverpool’s history, and his association with slavery was incidental to his status (as is – or rather was – normal at a time when slavery was normal). Unsurprisingly, the city named a street after him. This street, Penny Lane, is of course a celebrated icon of modern culture, in that The Beatles used it as the title for one of their many hit songs. The street is now a tourist site, with many fans visiting it.

    When I last looked at the Wikipedia entry for the street, it pointed out, cle3arly and categorically, that it was named after James Penny. On reading this piece I looked again, in order to ask whether the BLM thugs might target it. Imagine my surprise (irony) when I discovereed that the Wiki entry had been hastily re-written. It now states that:

    There is a common misconception that Penny Lane may have been named after 18th-century Liverpool slave trader James Penny,[1] although the city’s International Slavery Museum stated in June 2020 that there is no historical evidence linking Penny Lane to James Penny

    All too believable, sadly. But one has to admit that these people are thorough, if nothing else.

    Hitler’s conversation with Eckart
    Bolshevism from Moses to Lenin: A Dialogue Between Adolf Hitler and Me by Deitrich Eckart


    And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother and every one against his neighbor; city against city and kingdom against kingdom. And the spirit of Egypt shall fall in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards (Isaiah 19:2-3).


    And in 1871, in Paris, the Jewish defense also ran according to plan. There the communists destroyed whatever they could, but the many places and houses of the Rothschilds remained completely intact. [4] All this enables us to understand the place in Exodus according to which ‘a mixed multitude’ also left Egypt with the Jews.”

    “In Egypt the scoundrels’ scheme succeed only about halfway,” he finished. “The Egyptians became masters of the situation at the last moment and sent the ‘mixed multitude’ to the devil, together with the Jews. There must have been a desperate struggle. The slaughter of the firstborn reveals that clearly enough. Just as they have done with us, the Jews had won the great lower stratum of the population for themselves — ‘Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!’ — until one night they sent out the order, ‘Down with the bourgeois! Kill them, the dogs!’ but things didn’t turn out so well as they had expected. That portion of the Egyptian nation that had remained patriotic turned the tables and booted Moses, Cohn, and Levi out of the country, followed by the inhabitants whom they had incited. During this exodus they carried along as much stolen booty as they could manage, the Bible reports with satisfaction. It also reports, in no uncertain terms, that the Egyptians were glad to be rid of them (Exodus 12:35-36; Psalms 105:38). The best, though, was the reward the Jews gave their stupid accomplices. Suddenly they began calling them ‘rabble,’ [5] whereas formerly they had called them ‘comrade’ and pretended to love them. Imagine the faces these deluded ones must have made in the desert when they heard this.”

    “The murder of seventy-five thousand Persians, in the Book of Esther, no doubt had the same Bolshevist background,” I answered. “The Jews certainly didn’t accomplish that all by themselves.”

    “No more,” he confirmed, “than the dreadful bloodbath over half the Roman Empire, which took place during the reign of Emperor Trajan. Hundreds of thousands of non-Jewish nobles in Babylonia, in Cyrenaica, in Egypt, and on Cyprus butchered like cattle, most of them after the most abominable torture! [6] And today the Jews still rejoice over that. ‘


    “By now, the Egyptians had forgotten dear Joseph, who was dead and gone but there was no lack of others on whom to blame the state of affairs, namely the landowners, the industrialists, the bourgeois. According to the Jews, no one else was responsible. ‘Proletarians of all countries, unite!’ And the masses believed it and turned on their own flesh and blood for the sake of the ‘chosen people,’ who had brought on all their distress in the first place. But to us they touchingly read aloud in school the beautiful story of Joseph and his brothers. No doubt many teachers ‘wept a good while.’ It’s enough to drive one to despair.”

  19. The corporate sponsored BLM movement is just a distractionary psy-op for conveniently changing the narrative any time that the PICs ( psychopaths in control ) suffer narcisstic injury from exposure of their Corruption Virus.

    Presently, the majority of banks, technology, and paid speech media outlets happen to be dominated by Jews.

    Anyone who has even a limited understanding of American history knows that when Anglo-Saxon Christians dominated in those arenas, the outcome was precisely the same.


    The majority of Jews in America until after the second world war were typically middle class. That changed after world war two.

    This seems to be by all realistic analysis, an orchestrated deep-state led effort to incite a civil war which seeks to replace predatory white Jews, with predatory white Christians, while leaving the same predatory system in tact, without changing the system itself.

    The high-school drop-outs may fall for it. I doubt that anyone else will.

    It was the Biddles that Andrew Jackson had defeated when he nationalized the money supply providing America with its only debt free year in American history. It was the Morgans, the Mellons, and the Rockefellers that FDR should have defeated but chose to collude with instead. None of those Anglo-Saxon rober barons were honest people. They were all horrendously corrupt, abusive, predatory fraudsters, the same way that today’s PICs happen to be.

    If the goal is to defeat the corrupt PICs, it would be wise not to provide them with the ammo that they have mistakenly revealed to us that they are so desperately seeking, and just seek to replace them since they have abused their positions of power, and replace the system itself.

    Those calling for race wars that are not currently in positions of power, have also revealed that they would prefer to be the PIPs predators in power.

    That is equally unacceptable.

    The predation and corruption must end, regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion.

    More from Hitler’s conversation with Eckart
    “From long years of experience,” I brought out, “Dostoevski depicted the hair-raising conceit of the Russian Jew. [58] For a long time he lived with all kinds of convicts, including several Jews, sleeping on the same wooden bunks with them. Everyone treated these Jews in a friendly manner, he reported, not even taking offense at their raving-mad manner of praying. Probably their own religion had once been like that, thought the Russians to themselves, and they quietly let the Jews do as they pleased. But, on the other hand, the Jews haughtily rejected the Russians, didn’t want to eat with them, and looked down on them. And where was this? In a Siberian prison! All over Russia Dostoevski found this antipathy and loathing of the Jews for the natives. Nowhere, however, did the Russian people resent their behavior, indulgently believing it to be a part of the Jewish religion.”


    “Yes, indeed, and what a religion!” he (Adolf Hitler) said scornfully. “It is the character of a people which determines the nature of their religion, not the other way around.”

    “Dostoevski,” I (Deitrich Eckart) continued, “was compassion itself but, like Christ, he took exception to the Jews. With foreboding, he asked what would happen in Russia if ever the Jews should get the upper hand there. Would they even approximately give the natives the same rights they themselves enjoyed? Would they likewise allow them to pray in the manner they wished or would they not simply make slaves of them? Still worse, ‘wouldn’t they skin and fleece them?’ Wouldn’t they even exterminate them, as they had so often done with other peoples in their history?”

    “Ah, could our workers but share his forebodings, particularly those who hope for salvation from the Soviets!” he cried. “Famine, mass graves, slavery, Jewish whips. Whoever goes on strike is hanged. ‘Come hither, all ye who are weary and heavy laden.’ How they whistle, the dogs! And how fine that sounds, in front of the curtain! Behind it, however, lurk the pampered ‘Pöbelvolk’ the Red Army, the dregs of non-Jewish humanity.”

    The toll of Russians sacrificed since the beginning of Bolshevik domination is estimated by the authorities at about thirty million,” I answered. “Those who weren’t summarily executed fell to famine and disease. Were they all bourgeois? Only an imbecile could believe that. Who among us then has the most to suffer? The thousands who every day stand for long hours at their various occupations. Capitalists are hardly a majority among them. But that hasn’t dawned on our workers. In their eagerness to be the masters, they let themselves be led about by the nose like children.

    “Ebert [59] has thundered against capitalism his whole life. Now he is president. And? At every street corner banks sprout from the ground like mushrooms. That is certainly a fact. Everyone sees it. Anyone can reach out and touch it. But does that lead anyone to smell a rat? Not on your life!

    “The first thing the Jew Eisner [60] did after the revolution was have the banks guarded by the army. Capitalists smuggled their enormous hordes of money out of the country for months, and he didn’t raise a finger to stop them. He felt it was more important to travel to the Socialist Congress in Switzerland and there place the entire guilt for the world war on Germany. Do penance, he said, and the French will forgivingly clasp you to their hearts. Quite likely! Experience has gloriously confirmed it.”

Every year the black caucus members are taken to Israel, wine and dine, are provided with white eastern European prostitutes and are filmed secretly for black mail if these members get out of line.

    One can find tons of material on youtube about Zionists views about blacks. One of the Rabbi openly saying that blacks are monkeys (translation). How horribly the black jews are treated in Israel seem no concern of the black leaders in US or the so called while liberals.
    Ironically, there is life size statute of Gandhi in Martin Luther Library in Atlanta. Despite the knowledge of how Gandhi despised the blacks in South Africa. According to his writings, blacks were dirty, and they trade animals for wives……. on and on. His famous achievement was to force the British to install a 3rd door in a local post office. Initially there were two entrances in the post office, one for whites and the other for non whites. Gandhi argued that blacks were inferior to Indians so a third door was needed and installed.
    About a year or so ago, Ghana removed Gandhi’s statue from public display. Indian Government is eager to supply Gandhi’s statues at request.

  38. What makes American slavery unique is that it was chattel slavery based on skin pigment, which denied the humanity of its victims. There was no such stigma attached to slavery in, say, the Roman empire, in which a freedman had full civil rights once released from bondage, save being able to hold public office. His sons could, however; in fact, the grandfather of Rome’s first emperor Augustus had been a slave.

    Southern slavery, at its most basic level, was a capitalist’s wet dream: not only did you get to legally steal your employees’ wages, but you also got to act out your sadistic or psychosexual personality disorders with impunity on a pool of helpless victims. Initially slaveholders did not attempt to justify their spectacularly profitable “peculiar institution” but as criticism grew sharper, they reacted by convincing themselves that slavery was no less than the white man’s noble responsibility and Christian duty.

    There was never strong popular sentiment in the US to abolish slavery. The movement began in the fervent 1830s, peaked in the activist 1840s, and faded in the reactionary 1850s. Originally, the loudest voices against the institution came from below the Mason-Dixon line, where 137 of the first 150 antislavery societies were founded. Their motivation was to get free of the continual, grinding terror of slave rebellion, the much-feared “alarum bell in the night”, in Jefferson’s words. In the wake of the Nat Turner murders, the Virginia legislature was inundated with petitions to end slavery, and nearly voted to do so in 1832.

    Most antislavery northerners descended from the first Puritan settlers. They had always considered themselves the nation’s moral conscience, but they had become irrelevant in the dynamic, new multiethnic America of the Industrial Age. Fighting the good fight against slavery was their way of reasserting their moral superiority. The most popular proposal was compensated emancipation and repatriation to Africa. Only the radical abolitionist faction proposed that whites and blacks could or should live together in political and social equality. Its isolated firebrands provided a convenient imaginary enemy, like today’s “terrorists”, to suppress dissent and command obedience in a white southern population that was growing increasingly restive under the aristocratic yoke of the planter elite. For all the noise they made, the radicals were never more than a politically impotent movement on what we would today call the lunatic fringe – until they rode the popular rage at the slaveholder insurgency into positions of power.

    Speaking of attacking WHITE PEOPLE (under the influence of Jews) what is with the statue of Lenin near the nation of Chop/Chaz being left untouched. Most of these “white” retards could care less that Lenin ( who was at the very least 1/4 Jewish, some say he was 100% kosher approved) slaughtered MILLIONS of their fellow White people in a “worker’s paradise” that punished and enslaved the workers more than anyone else and gave the tiny Jewish population almost total power. I would say that the Soviet Union’s White population were SLAVES to the predominately Jewish leadership of the Bolsheviks.

    Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America: A Genealogical History
    by Elizabeth Caldwell Hirschman (Author), Donald Yates (Author)

    Americans have learned in elementary school that their country was founded by a group of brave, white, largely British Christians. Modern reinterpretations recognize the contributions of African and indigenous Americans, but the basic premise has persisted. This groundbreaking study fundamentally challenges the traditional national storyline by postulating that many of the initial colonists were actually of Sephardic Jewish and Muslim Moorish ancestry. Supporting references include historical writings, ship manifests, wills, land grants, DNA test results, genealogies, and settler lists that provide for the first time the Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, and Jewish origins of more than 5,000 surnames, the majority widely assumed to be British. By documenting the widespread presence of Jews and Muslims in prominent economic, political, financial and social positions in all of the original colonies, this innovative work offers a fresh perspective on the early American experience. …

    We review now three books discussing the American colonists conventionally identified as Freemasons. The first, Ronald F. Heaton’s book on the founding fathers, 33 provides biographical information on prominent Colonial Freemasons. We place the initials SJ after those we propose to be of Sephardic Jewish descent (simply J for Jewish). Among those listed by Heaton are Benedict Arnold (SJ), Mordecai Gist (SJ), Rufus King (SJ), Benjamin Lincoln (an ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln — SJ) and George Washington. Hodapp’s more recent book, Solomon’s Builders, 34 lists Daniel Campbell (SJ), the grand master of Virginia, the Marquis de Lafayette and Andrew Jackson (SJ), Benjamin Franklin (Frankeln, SJ), 35 Paul Revere (Rivera, SJ), 36 John Hancock, Dr. Joseph Warren (SJ), James Otis, James Galloway, Peyton Randolph, Richard Henry Lea (SJ, ancestor of Robert E. Lee of the Confederacy), William Dawes (who rode with Revere, SJ), James Monroe, John Jay, Robert Livingston (SJ), John Marshall, William Paterson, John Blair (J), Jacob Broom, Daniel Carroll, John Dickinson, Nicholas Gilman (J), John Wise (J), David Stewart (J), Elisha Cullen Dick, John DufFey (J), Valentine Reintzel (J), Haym Salomon (SJ), Eliphas Levi (J), Benjamin Latrobe, Morgan Lewis (J), Arthur St. Clair (J), Elias Boudinot (J), Nathan Gorman (J) and John Sevier/Xavier (SJ). 37 In Colonial Freemasonry edited by Lewis Cook,38 various authors discuss the Masonic membership of famous figures throughout the original thirteen American Colonies. Connecticut Freemasons were led by Master Mason Jehosophat Starr (Arabic and Hebrew for “promissory note,” SJ). 39 Another Connecticut freemason is Benjamin Isaacs, who, although known to be Jewish, nonetheless attached himself to the local Episcopal Church to avoid anti-Jewish legislation then in force. He is remembered as the designer of the Great Seal of the United States. 40 Other Connecticut Masons include Joel Clarke, Joseph Perry, Daniel Moulton, Samuel Mott, John Barrett, Jonathan Hart, Bilious (Hebrew Bilhah) Ward, Israel Putnam, Seth Warner, Ezra Stiles and Dr. Sail (Saul) Pell — all of whom we propose to be of Jewish ancestry and orientation.

    Where are the Russian and Ukrainians reparations from Jews worldwide for the Holodomor? Yes indeed, where are Europeans reparations from the groups you mentioned? Why don’t Blacks demand reparations from their African kin who enslaved them in the first place and then sold them to Arabs, Jews, as well as Whites? Answer: Because ONLY WHITEY is stupid enough to feel guilty for slavery, never mind that almost the every race has either engaged at enslaving others at one time in history or that almost every race has experienced being enslaved at one time in history. Could not a prisoner of war be no better off than a slave, hell, IMO, the treatment a lot of German civilians and POWs received from Americans, Soviets, Jews, Brits, and others were far worse than most Black slaves experienced in America. All Black Americans should get down on their knees and THANK GOD THAT THEIR ANCESTORS WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO COME TO AMERICA, OTHERWISE, THEIR ANCESTORS WOULD HAVE ENDURED FAR MORE BRUTAL TREATMENT AT THE HANDS OF ARABS, AND THEIR FELLOW AFRICANS.

    Ford’s Dearborn International rings so true today. Nothing has changed at all in exactly a hundred years. It was published in 1920-22.
    Naming a criminal network is not anti-S. It is naming a criminal network. The jeopardy of our planet and humanity is pending for all of us with our gigantic fear of this small network of criminals.

    Dearborn International talked about the Divide-Conquer-
    Destroy tactic used by a Criminal Jewish network in the early 20th century through their control of the hard liquor business.

    Here are some quotes. Dearborn International Chapter 48, pages 28-29

    The ancient Jewish policy of Divide-Conquer-Destroy was in operation. Jewish policy favors division as a preparation to the kind of union the Jewish leaders want.

    Page 29

    The same policy of Divide-Conquer-Destroy tells the story of liquor trade. Jewish influence divided between distilling and compounding, drove out distilling, and in the end destroyed the traffic as a legalized entity.

    pages 29-30

    It may be fate. It may be Destiny’s way to survival of the fittest. That which succumbs to Judaization, as Jewish leaders conceive it, may deserve to fall. The justification of its destruction may appear in the possibilty of its Judaization. Anything that can be Judaized is to that extent sentenced to oblivion.

    In this chapter Ford, explains how a criminal Jewish network took over the hard liquor industry in the US. They distilled cheap, quickly made “blended” hard liquor. Many incidents of “racial” divisions were caused by sales of very “special” bad liquor in the black neighborhoods.

    The Jewish criminal network control of hard liquor had a bad effect on all drinkers. It was called rum rot. This led to prohibition.

    Don’t the Zion MSM Zombies see what is going on. Divide-Conquer-Destroy is exactly what is going on now in 2020. The same thing over and over again.

    Compensated Emancipation and Return to Africa would have been the solution that spared 600,000 deaths from 1861-1865… as well as 155 years of burdening the USA in trying to assimilate these people into the dominant culture.

    But… No. That didn’t happen.

    So, let us do Reparations.

    Give every African American that wants it, $1 Million in payments sent to them in Africa. Over time. As long as they stay there, and never return.

    Those that want to forgo such generosity, may stay. I think LeBron will be staying.

    Meanwhile, make every Jew, as the Jews dominated slave trade and slave holding, take $1 Million of their assets, and head for Israel. Never to return.

    Let the US Government confiscate as a special Tax all Jewish assets abouve the $1M per person.

    Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America. A Genealogical History


    One of the leaders of this new Quaker movement was a John Copland (from Hebrew Koppel, derived from Jacob), 32 who arrived in Salem from England in 1656. Two other prominent
    Quakers of the period were Nathaniel Sylvester and Eliakim Wardell, both bearing Sephardic
    given and last names. Still other heretics were Baptists. Pestana reports that one minister, Thomas Gould (German for “money” or “gold” as already discussed), liked to “read Chronicles 1:2 to his congregation: ‘Let him kiss me with kisses of his mouth, for your love is
    better than wine.’” This is an Old Testament passage central to the liturgy of the Kabbalat
    service ofJews which welcomes the Sabbath as the bride or delight of the bridegroom. Sung Friday at dusk to an ancient Moorish melody as part of the service is the hymn Lcha Dodi (“Come My Beloved”) composed in the 16th century by the rabbi Shlomo Halevi Alkabetz…..

    In agreement with crypto-Jewish practice, endogamy among the Massachusetts Quaker
    settlers was carried to extremes. In one case, Pestana reports, “six intermarried families
    accounted for fully two-thirds of the more than five hundred people known to have been members of the Salem Monthly meeting.” Among these congregants were Benjamin Bagnall, Sarah Flood33 Bassett and the Estes family. All bear Sephardic surnames. ….

    And when the condemned witch Sarah Good stood on the scaffold, she threatened Salem’s assistant minister Nicholas Noyes, ‘if you take away my life, God will give you blood to drink.’” We believe that many, perhaps most, of those accused of witchcraft were actually secret Judaizers. Whereas their practices may have been successfully hidden or winked at from others in their often remote home villages in England, acts of burning candles, kosher slaughtering, housecleaning rituals and the like were unfamiliar to the majority of their new neighbors. The Massachusetts collective branded their behavior as beyond the pale. Sarah Good s bloody curse, for example, makes the most sense when viewed from the Jewish proscription against consuming blood of any kind.

    Judah P. Benjamin was also allegedly the individual who gave the order for Lincoln’s assassination, but fled [to] England after the assassination.

    I also remember reading this. It is curious that in 1865 at age 53 he flees to London, then Paris, and quickly ascends to great prosperity again. It makes you wonder whether he was being rewarded by his benefactors for the role he is said to have played in the assassination of Lincoln, who challenged the bankers monopoly of money creation by issuing directly into circulation debt-free Greenbacks. As I recall, not long afterwards Rothschild is bankrolling August Belmont in an effort to bribe politicians to get control of the nation’s money. To the best of my memory, some of this material is covered in Stephen Zarlenga’s The Lost Science of Money: The Mythology of Money, the Story of Power.

    Charles Dickens museum in Kent vandalised by ex-Green councillor decrying author ‘racist’

    A MUSEUM dedicated to the British literary genius Charles Dickens has been sprayed with graffiti denouncing the author as a racist.

    Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, a former Green Party councillor has daubed the Charles Dickens museum with the words “Dickens Racist, Dickens Racist”. that he will make “no apology” for what he has done because the author was a “notorious genocidal racist”. Ian Driver from Kent, said he will make “no apology” for what he has done because the author was a “notorious genocidal racist”.

    Mr Driver cited the famous character of Fagin in Oliver Twist as being an anti-Semitic stereotype…

    Dickens has been a target for many years, after making generations of Jewish kids feel bad…

    Charles Dickens has probably had more influence on the way that we celebrate Christmas today than any single individual in human history…except One.

    At the beginning of the Victorian period the celebration of Christmas was in decline. The medieval Christmas traditions, which combined the celebration of the birth of Christ with the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia (a pagan celebration for the Roman god of agriculture), and the Germanic winter festival of Yule, had come under intense scrutiny by the Puritans under Oliver Cromwell. The Industrial Revolution, in full swing in Dickens’ time, allowed workers little time for the celebration of Christmas.

    Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. 45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. 46 You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.

    Note that everyone in the world except fellow Jews can be enslaved for life.

    Exodus 21:20

    Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result…

    But wait, there’s more:

    Exodus 21:21

    But if the slave survives a day or two, he is not to be avenged, for the slave is his money.

    In other words, if you beat your slave or slave girl to death on a single day, you must be punished.

    But it’s OK to beat them to death over several days because the slave is your property and you can do what you want with them.

The man who started slavery for life, Antony Johnson, was Black and brought to the US as an indentured servant. Many people at the time, were brought as indentured servants, regardless of skin colour. Johnson owned one Black and two White slaves. After Johnson’s lawsuit, which successfully gained him the right to decide when the length of indenture of John Casor, who was Black, and had served the usual 7 years of indenture, slavery for life was born. That included Johnson’s two White slaves.
    It should be noted, that the native American Indians were also enslaved and kept slaves, regardless of skin colour.

    One would expect the Nation of Islam to research Jews selling slaves. The irony in this, is that all parties in this are not looked at. Darío Fernández-Morera “The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise: Muslims, Christians, and Jews Under Islamic Rule in Medieval Spain” is a look at Islam in Spain, but does make mention of this connection, but only a bad researcher would stop there. Dr. John Azumah’s book “The Legacy of Arab Islam in Africa” (you can find an interview on YouTube with Samuel Green with the author) takes another look a the slave trade. David Horowitz’ recent article “The Hate America Project” aka 1619 Project points out that the major slave traders were two nations, Ghana and Benin. The slaves were the spoils of war. Recently, the Democrats did there kneeling in memory of George Floyd? Those clothes they wore around their necks? Those were worn by the tribal leaders of the Ashanti tribe whose main product was slaves and gold.
    A few years ago one of Hollywood’s woke directors did a film “Ahmistad.” A passing mention is give to the fact that the English attacked and destroyed a slave castle of the slave traders, who were Africans. This would have occurred after the William Wilberforce led the fight to end the slave trade in the British Empire. The main characters of Ahmistad were Africans, who had been bought from that slave castle and were being shipped to Cuba. It was John Quincy Adams that defended them
    when the the ship they had taken from the Spanish crew wondered in to U.S. waters. The only nations that have ended slavery are nations that were founded by white people and British , who are Christian based. I include America in that. They irony of Jews being involved in slavery is that in the Old Testament they are expressly told not to engage in this practice. It was pointed out to me by an Egyptian Christian

    William Federer has quoted the president of Harvard, who spoke at the 25th anniversary of Tuskegee Institute, in 1906, as saying “By 1905, Tuskegee had produced more self made millionaires that Harvard, Yale and Princeton combined.” He said this before political correctness was invented. So

    And among some African societies the slaves could become adopted members of the same as equal members a thought they ad always been. But slavery in general was something that invited universal disdain and more.

It must be also added that part of the Slavic slaves who arrived in Spain were later transferred to other locations in the Muslim world, like North Africa and even the Middle East; in the former, the existence of the Slavic Guards has also been confirmed (see below about the Slavic Guard at Nukur). According to Ibn Hauqal, the Slavic slaves were brought to Muslim Spain via Galicia, Frankia, the Lombard Kingdom, and Calabria in Southern Italy.

    Here is more detail about slavery of Slavs in the Islamic world during the 9th and 11th centuries. Perhaps, this is a big reason that Eastern Europe can not be duped into this Zion MSM BLM movement.

    The Saqaliba—a term that in medieval Arabic literature denoted the Slavic populations of central and eastern Europe (and possibly some of their neighbors)—offer a particularly insightful case study of the mechanisms of the early Islamic slave trade and the nature of the Muslim demand for slaves. What makes them such an ideal case study is their high visibility in texts produced in the Islamic world between the early 9th and early 11th centuries. Arab geographers and diplomats investigated their origins, while archaeological material, primarily hundreds of thousands of dirhams found in Scandinavia and the Slavic lands, contains traces of the trade in them. By combining these strands of evidence, we can build an exceptionally detailed image of slave trade systems that supplied Saqaliba to the Islamic markets, which, in turn, can be used to illustrate more general mechanisms governing the trade in and demand for slaves in the medieval Islamic world.

    There was a diversity of slaves in the Islamic world in the 11th century. Ibn Butlan listed twenty places of origin. Blacks (Zanj) and Saqaliba (Slavs) came from the most long distance places within the Islamic slave trade at that time. Thus, it implied a long term voyage for both of these type of slaves to arrive at their destinations compared to other slaves that were at the borders of the Islamic world.

    We can perhaps see long-distance slave trade systems, with their complex logistics and immanent incertitude, as a special case rather than a pattern for the Islamic slave trade. Frontier trade and warfare all along the borders of the Islamic world appear to have been sufficient to satisfy the urban demand for domestic and sexual slaves. The diversity of these slaves’ geographical origins is illustrated by the mid-11th-century guidebook to purchasing slaves composed by Ibn Butlan, which listed more than twenty places of origin. With the exception of Zanj and Saqaliba supplied by long-distance trade systems, almost all of the slaves had been situated within or just outside the borders of the Islamic world. 14

    Basic questions for the fraud of so called ‘Black Live Matter’ below:
    To Understand BLM.:


    Why is BLM not transparent financially? Why do they conceal their financial statements?

    Why is the BLM aim to defund police, and not to defund the War on Drugs? The latter is what fills the prisons with black lives.

    Why is BLM willing to defund police without having a viable alternative system?

    Why does BLM aim to tear down the policing of black communities, including that which is directed at violent crimes?

    Why does BLM want to release violent criminals from prisons?

    Why is BLM so dead set against people who have built up wealth?

    Why does BLM want reparations from whites, whoever they may be, when they cannot possibly identify past perpetrators and link them to victims in the present?

    Why does BLM blame everything relating to black people on racism, when this case cannot be rationally sustained?

    Why does BLM disregard rational argument and replace it with rhetoric, slogans and demands?

    Why is it BLM’s aim to disrupt ordinary families, and not to promote families with fathers?

    Why does BLM focus on black women and largely ignore black men?

    Why is BLM’s leadership Marxist and trained to be Marxist?

    Why does BLM paint today’s society as systemically racist when it is not?

    Why does BLM promote the fiction that faulty theories of race that used to be prevalent generations ago are at work discriminating against black people today?

    Why does BLM attack capitalism, free enterprise and free markets?

    Why does BLM violently attack speech that opposes their views?

    Why doesn’t BLM dissociate itself from antifa and its violence?

    Why doesn’t BLM condemn rioting and looting, especially that which destroys black businesses and communities?

    Why is BLM willing to burn down the system?

    Why is BLM willing to attack images of Jesus and religious places of worship?

    Why does a BLM leader speak of forming a military arm?

    The largest African slave rebellion in history happened in of all places in what is now Iraq.
    It was plantation slavery under very harsh conditions. Here info on that.

    It was in early Iraq where the largest African slave rebellions occurred. Here were gathered tens of thousands of East African slave laborers called Zanj. These Blacks worked in the humid salt marshes in conditions of extreme misery. Conscious of their large numbers and oppressive working conditions the Zanj rebelled on at least three occasions between the seventh and ninth centuries. The largest of these rebellions lasted for fifteen years, from 868 to 883, during which time our people inflicted defeat after defeat upon the Arab armies sent to suppress the revolt.

    It grew into something quite big.

    This rebellion is known historically as the “Revolt of the Zanj” or the “Revolt of the Blacks.” It is significant to point out that the Zanj forces were rapidly augmented by large-scale defections of Black soldiers under the employ of the Abbassid Caliphate at Baghdad. The rebels themselves, hardened by years of brutal treatment, repaid their former masters in kind, and are said to have been responsible for great slaughters in the areas that came under their sway


    It is even spread into what is Iran now.

    At its height the Zanj rebellion spread to Iran and advanced to within seventy miles of Baghdad itself. The Zanj even built their own capital, called Moktara (the Elect City), which covered a large area and flourished for several years. The Zanj rebellion was ultimately only suppressed with the intervention of large Arab armies and the lucrative offer of amnesty and rewards to any rebels who might choose to surrender.

    Jews use the “holohoax” (oops, I mean “holocaust”) to deflect criticism from themselves, being worldwide major slave traders for millennium. They use the “poor jews” excuse to keep others from bringing up their major role in the slave trade. From financiers and insurers, to ship owners and auctioneers, jews have been neck-deep in the slave trade.

  130. From the viewpoint of economics what was practiced in America was “slave plantation agriculture”. This practice was invented in the 4th century BC in Carthage, adopted by Rome in the 2nd century BC and exported thence to southern France, Spain and Portugal. Most agricultural slaves in antiquity were either captured in war or by pirates or debtors from the Near East, most were from “Syria” (i.e. the Near East), the Balkans, south Russia, Gaul, Britain, Germania — plus war and pirate victims from all over. Nearly all were ‘white.’ The Spanish and Portuguese pioneered slave plantation agriculture’s exportation South and Central America, with the British, Dutch and French following suit in the Caribbean. London finance was a key player in its implantation in the American South (see Jefferson’s comment quoted below).

    The primary beneficiaries of the slave economy of the American south were investors in mercantile commerce, import-export trade, and finance. By 1800 they were headquartered on Wall Street (see below).



    By 1811 New York City’s import-export entrepôt economy had considerably
    diversified — notably into the interconnected “triangle trade” in sugar,
    rum distilling, and slaves. “In 1655, the [Dutch West Indies] Company slave
    ship Witte Paert arrived in New Amsterdam from West Africa with 300 slaves
    who were sold at public auction, increasing the city’s population by 10
    percent.”[52] The city quickly evolved into a major North American center
    of the trade; a new “slave market opened at the eastern end of Wall Street
    in 1700.”[53] By 1810 the South’s export and domestic trade and credit were
    in the hands of Manhattan’s mercantile and investor elite.[54] Over their
    strenuous opposition New York State — heeding the dictates of its New
    England conscience — outlawed slavery and Manhattan’s slave markets were
    closed on July 4, 1827. But until 1861 Wall Street banks continued writing
    mortgages with slaves as collateral and dealing in them as financial
    instruments, a service as vital to the South’s slave economy as Manhattan’s
    coastal and export trade in Southern cotton, wholesale wares, domestic
    staples and mercantile credit. “In the sale of a Southern planter’s
    property, a New York creditor took over the slaves … by no means an
    infrequent practice … many merchants at one time or another owned
    ‘slave-work plantations.’ One partner in ‘a Broadway firm’ was said to
    possess twelve hundred slaves, and another three hundred.’ … The cotton
    factors [brokers] in the South were either themselves New Yorkers or agents of New
    York firms. The shipping vessels which carried the cotton either directly
    to Europe or coastwise to New York or New England were frequently owned by
    New Yorkers. New York companies took charge of the insurance of the cotton
    cargoes. The advances necessary for the planting of the new cotton crop
    came from New York firms and banks. Finally, the domestic and imported
    merchandise used in the cotton kingdom came mainly from New York.” Colin
    Woodard summarizes: “The city’s merchants and bankers had extensive ties
    with Deep Southern and Tidewater slave lords … As the local Evening Post
    reported in 1860, ‘The City of New York belongs almost as much to the South
    as to the North.”[55]

    On Wall Street during (and before and after) the Civil War “Gold trading was
    done at the Gold Room, a trading room located around the corner from the New
    York Stock Exchange. Trading in the metal took precedence there above
    anything else. When the Union was victorious on the battlefield, the
    traders sang ‘John Brown’s Body’ in unison; when the South scored a victory,
    they switched to ‘Dixie.’ The lack of conscience displayed by the
    speculators infuriated many, including Abraham Lincoln, who asked a
    colleague, ‘What do you think of those fellows on Wall Street who are
    gambling in gold at such a time as this? For my part I wish every one of
    them had his devilish head shot off.’”[64]

    Colonial New England discountenanced slavery on grounds of religion and
    political philosophy. “Free Negroes” participated in its communities before
    the Revolution and after. Crispus Attucks was one of the demonstrators
    killed in the Boston Massacre. When John and Abigail Adams went to reside
    in Philadelphia while he represented Massachusetts in the Continental
    Congress they left their Braintree farm in the care of a local black family.
    Free blacks fought in George Washington’s Continental army and sailed in New
    England merchant marine and whaling fleets from before the Revolution until
    the Civil War and after.[85] In the South also, as early as 1778 Thomas
    Jefferson “endeavored unsuccessfully to bring about the gradual extinction
    of slavery by bringing in a bill in the Assembly of Virginia decreeing that
    all slaves born after its passage should be free…. In 1784 he proposed
    the prohibition of slavery in the [“Old”] Northwest, and, though defeated
    that year, his proposal was successful in 1787, when, by a unanimous vote,
    the Continental Congress prohibited slavery throughout the territory north
    and west of the Ohio.”[86]

    In the South, as in Manhattan, slavery was predominantly a feature of upper
    class livelihoods, its profits concentrated “at the very top of the southern
    economic pyramid.”[87] At the Constitutional Convention later in 1787 these
    economic interests blocked prohibition of slavery in the Constitution —
    Jefferson was on a diplomatic mission in France.[88] Two years earlier, in
    his Notes On The State of Virginia (1785) he described Southern slave
    plantations as “a species of property annexed to certain mercantile houses
    in London.”[89] Twentieth-century historian Fernand Braudel concurs about
    the preponderant influence of absentee middlemen: “The commercial interests
    of large banks and investment corporations of England exercised a close
    control over the early plantations of both the Caribbean and the North
    American mainland.”[90] Already “by the beginning of the eighteenth century
    the engrossing of the lands of lowland Virginia had progressed so far, that
    the practice of holding large tracts of wasteland for reserves in the great
    plantations had become so common, that the authorities of Virginia reported
    to the home government that the best lands were all taken up.”[91]

    The huge expansion of slavery in the South that commenced in the 1790s was
    driven by the extension of cotton plantation acreage to profit from the
    enhanced potential production enabled by Eli Whitney’s invention of the
    cotton gin, patented in 1793, but the fundamental economic incitement was
    the sky-rocketing demand for cotton from the textile mills of newly
    industrialized Lancashire, England, whose mechanical looms induced a rise in
    imports from the South “from 130,000 lb. to 18,000,000 lbs yearly between
    1792 and 1800” and dozens of times that in succeeding decades — a burst of
    industrial progress whose finances beggared and doomed to proletarian
    degradation tens of thousands of traditional English home hand-loom weavers:
    capital in international action. By 1820 cotton represented 32% of
    America’s exports, reaching 51% in 1840 and 57% in 1860. Far and away
    America’s largest export business, its finances and trade were managed
    predominantly by Manhattan middlemen.[93]

    Rebellion doesn’t usually come from the utterly defeated , It always comes from those who enjoys cohesion , time to organize , and offers an alternative and shares same hopes and aspirations because of socio economic structural similarites. Rebels often as a group are economically, socially , and politically disadvantaged compared to those against which rebellion is mounted . But the barriers to the access to opportunities and the the hopes for changes are not maintained either by persistent differences of race color or religion .When these differences are impenetrable ,chances of reconciliation through rebellion is nil . It had to be total separation . The socio economic commonality makes it psychologically possible to change the status , This describes the slave rebellion in Iraq .

    Organized Rebellion is not a feature of a broken splintered atomized persons grouped into one single identity that would have described the indentured labor forces or the transatlantic slaves
    That would have to wait for internal implosion of the ruling superior class . .

  133. There have been slaves since ancient times through the eighteenth century in many countries and most of them have been white. Sometimes they were called something different. Indentured servants were de facto slaves, as were the serfs in Russia, who were tied to the land and were not liberated until 1861.

    What we call “chattel slavery” existed primary as a means of production that became obviated in the west largely as a consequence of the Industrial Revolution and, to a lesser extent, post-Enlightenment age concepts concerning human liberty.

    In Race and Slavery in the Middle East, Bernard Lewis, a renowned historian who is certainly no friend of Islam, wrote

    In later times, for which we have more detailed evidence, it would seem that while the slaves often suffered appalling privations from the moment of their capture until their arrival at their final destination, once they were placed with a family they were reasonably well treated and accepted in some degree as members of the household. In commerce, slaves were often apprenticed to their masters, sometimes as assistants, sometimes advancing to become agents or even business partners.

    … and …

    In what might be called civil matters, the slave was a chattel with no legal powers or rights whatsoever. He could not enter into a contract, hold property, or inherit. If he incurred a fine, his owner was responsible. He was, however, distinctly better off, in the matter of rights, than a Greek or Roman slave, since Islamic jurists, and not only philosophers and moralists, took account of humanitarian considerations. They laid down, for example, that a master must give his slave medical attention when required, must give him adequate upkeep, and must support him in his old age. If a master defaulted on these and other obligations to his slave, the qadi could compel him to fulfill them or else either to sell or to emancipate the slave. The master was forbidden to overwork his slave, and if he did so to the point of cruelty, he was liable to a penalty which was, however, discretionary and not prescribed by law. A slave could enter into a contract to earn his freedom, in which case his master had no obligation to pay for his upkeep. While in theory the slave could not own property, he could be granted certain rights of ownership for which he paid a fixed sum to his master. [emphasis added]

    Fact is, while the phenomenon of chattel slavery has been largely eliminated, liberty remains ever elusive even in the contemporary west. Most of us are compelled to wage and debt slavery, and the latitude of choice we enjoy is highly circumscribed in a society where the degree of one’s freedom is directly correlated to economic mobility and political correctness.

    The more things change, …

    We need to be very skeptical of what looks like Jewish revision of history. Remember, they are liars intrinsically.

    There are also those non-Jews who defame Christians by calling them Jews though they once were but are no more. Or their remote ancestors were.

    We want Jews to abandon Judaism except we won’t let them, keep calling them Jews when they did.

    While in the European “New W o r ld ”, the measure of a man’s stature was mapped out and calibrated on the physical dimensions of empire built upon the sinews of forced masculine labour, in the Islamic Orient wealth was a reflection of prestige, young girls the vessel of male h u b r is , th e mats of male pleasure ground, the malleable material to be shaped to the master’s will.

    Thus, women slaves in the Arab world were often turned into concubines living in harems, and rarely as wives, their children becoming free. A large number of male slaves and young boys were castrated and turned into eunuchs who kept watch over the harems. Castration was a particularly brutal operation with a survival rate of only 10%.

    “The combined effect of all these factors,” says Duncan Clarke, “was a steady demand for slaves throughout the Islamic world, which had cover story to be met from wars, raids or purchases along the borders with non-Islamic regions. Although some of these slaves came from Russia, the Balkans and central Asia, the continuing expansion of Islamic regimes in sub-Saharan Africa made black Africans, the major source.”

    Here is more about this Arab slave traders in Africa.

    Historians estimate that between 10 and 18 million Africans were enslaved by Arab slave traders and taken across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara desert between 650 and 1900. [Slavery remained legal in the islamic world until 1970. NINETEEN-seventy.]…Many male African slaves were castrated [by muslims] under the belief that the blacks had an uncontrollable sexual drive…

    In Senegambia, between 1300 and 1900, close to one-third of the population was enslaved. In early Islamic states of the western Sudan, including Ghana (750–1076), Mali (1235–1645), Segou (1712–1861), and Songhai (1275–1591), about a third of the population were slaves. In Sierra Leone in the 19th century about half of the population consisted of slaves. In the 19th century at least half the population was enslaved among the Duala of the Cameroon, the Igbo and other peoples of the lower Niger, the Kongo, and the Kasanje kingdom and Chokwe of Angola. Among the Ashanti and Yoruba a third of the population consisted of slaves. The population of the Kanem was about a third slave. It was perhaps 40% in Bornu (1396–1893). Between 1750 and 1900 from one- to two-thirds of the entire population of the Fulani jihad states consisted of slaves. The population of the Sokoto caliphate formed by Hausas in the northern Nigeria and Cameroon was half slave in the 19th century. It is estimated that up to 90% of the population of Arab-Swahili Zanzibar was enslaved. Roughly half the population of Madagascar was enslaved…

    The rebellion did happen. They probably were not castrated. Perhaps this rebellion was the motivation for the castration of slaves on a mass scale in the Islamic world. It was so huge that is must of spooked the Muslim world.

    The Zanj Slaves’ Rebellion (869-883 A.D.)

    What distinguishes the Zanj from numerous other slave rebellions cannot be measured in terms of numbers or the length of their struggle alone because one needs to bear in mind the aptitude displayed time and again in outmanoeuvring the ruling class. Instinctively they knew what needs to be done. That is not to belittle their numbers for this is one instance when quantitative comparisons are not misleading. The Spartacus Rebellion lasted for 3 years (73-71 BCE) and involved around 120,000 slaves. By contrast, the Zanj were 500,000 strong and maintained a marooned state for 15 years. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise that their history has not been subjected to the gaze of Hollywood for the latter has an inbuilt tendency for de-memorizing and reifying proletarian resistance to class society. It is, therefore, left to us 21st century proles to re-create the world and times of kindred spirits separated from us by more than a millennium.

  149. A word about Malcom Little (Malcom X) and R.D. King,

    Mr. Malcom Little was a astute rhetorician and deeply committed in his convictions and one those convictions was that he changed his mind regarding militancy. And when he changed his mind he changed it completely. Not the reason for his militancy but his approach of how to navigate the country he thorough believed was “antagonistic in every way to blacks.” Many heavily lean on his militancy and ignore his shift, that shift is crucial to understanding the man.

    While someone commented that Dr./Rev king was controlled, i think the evidence is otherwise. While he referred the use of the system to advocate for change. He was very confrontational. It would be a mistake to that the campaign to undermine him by the justice dept and others did much more than slow him down a tad. And just as with Mr. Little Dr. King also made a shift. He became increasingly more confrontational of the system as a whole. He allowed himself to be hoodwinked by college students into the Vietnam issue and it was he that gave that movement legitimate force, thereby inviting the most destructive elements to the gains made and yet to be acted on. That speech that referenced Vietnam opened the door to his death. So controlled, — uhhh maybe the establishment thought so, but they had apoplectic fits regarding the his views on Vietnam.

    And liberal and conservative whites raced to destroy whatever gains made by either men as civil rights became the home issues that had nothing to with employment, equal, housing, education or anything of vast concern to blacks in general.

    Jewish slavery in modern times: It’s called the “Motion Picture Contract.” From the beginning of Hollywood to the 1970s, actors had to sign a contract with a studio in order to work. They literally owned the actor, who couldn’t even tie his shoelaces without specific permission.

    Tab Hunter, the half Jewish teenage girl heartthrob of the 1950s and ’60s, tells this story.

    Hunter: Actually you know I did my [first] recording for [the record label] Dot. The main recording was “Young Love,” which knocked Elvis out of the number one slot. We used his backup group the Jordanaires. I cut an album there and after that, Jack Warner called me into his office and said “Waaait a minute we own you for everything,” And I said but “Mr. Warner you don’t have a recording company” and he said “Well we do now” and he started Warner Brothers Records.

    … young girls the vessel of male h u b r is , th e mats of male pleasure ground, the malleable material to be shaped to the master’s will.

    Your major was history. Surely you understand that this passage is clearly polemical nonsense, no?

    See my post above, which includes a general comparison between the conditions of slavery in dar al-Islam with those of the American milieu. The fact that those excerpts were penned by an individual antagonistic toward Islam is important: in spite of his antagonism, he nevertheless concedes that

    … once they (slaves) were placed with a family they were reasonably well treated and accepted in some degree as members of the household. In commerce, slaves were often apprenticed to their masters, sometimes as assistants, sometimes advancing to become agents or even business partners.

    The notion that the Muslim role in slavery is “hidden” from us occurs only to those who receive their information about history primarily through television and other mainstream media outlets (a.k.a. lazy folk). Anyone willing to visit a library can procure scores of texts that detail that role, whether from the library itself or via an International Library Loan. If your university offered courses in Islamic history and you enrolled, you’re certain to have heard about it.

    The evidence that militates against the notion that “very few descendants of slaves (in dar al-Islam) survived” is too voluminous to cite in its entirety here, but we’ll provide a few poignant facts that belie that absurdity. Concerning the Ottoman Imperial Harem:

    The imperial harem also served as a parallel institution to the sultan’s household of male servants. The women were provided with an education roughly on par with that provided to male pages, and at the end of their respective educations they would be married off to one another, as the latter graduated from the palace to occupy administrative posts in the empire’s provinces.[4] Consequently, only a small fraction of the women in the harem actually engaged in sexual relations with the sultan, as most were destined to marry members of the Ottoman political elite, or else to continue service to the valide sultan.[5]

    So here we learn that female slaves of the Ottoman Imperial Harem were not only not coerced into sexual relations, they were educated, married off to male counterparts, and then occupied positions of leadership. How in the world would the children of these slaves not survive?

    No historian denies the cruelty of the devşirme, which was completely anathema to Islamic principles; nor do historians deny the castration of African slaves, though to claim that most male slaves were castrated demands evidence that is lacking. If we want to speak of the “complexity” of humans and more “hidden (in plain sight) history,” let’s discuss the fact that it was the Coptic Church who was primarily responsible for the castration of African slaves destined for the Muslim world:

    An excerpt from 1919 American Journal of Urology and Sexology reads

    In the Turkish Empire most of the eunuchs are furnished by the monastery Abou-Gerbe in Upper Egypt where the Coptic priests castrate Nubian and Abyssinian boys at about eight years of age and afterward sell them to the Turkish market. The Coptic priests perform the ‘complete’ operation, that is, they cut away the whole scrotum, testes and penis.

    Complex, isn’t it?

    Not really. All the evidence is readily available. We just have to be willing to look for it.

    I know about that, non-Muslims had to do the castration. Coptic Christians are in Africa so it would make sense that they would be one of the ones chosen to do it. Other non-Muslims like Jews or African animists were probably involved too.

    I don’t know the percentage of males who were castrated.

    Zion MSM hides the complexity of world history.

    I knew most of this stuff before the internet, since I like reading about history.

    It is good for this info to be out there. Why? The US and the world is going crazy with BLM mania. This would make people realize that slavery has been part of world history for a very long time.

    Yes, I know that not all concubines were not treated badly. A few concubines had a huge influence in Ottoman politics.

    The Crimean Tartar slave trade on Slavs was quite brutal. The women who made it to good homes were the lucky ones.

    Author Michael Khodarkovsky claims in his book Russia’s Steppe Frontier that 150,000 to 200,000 ethnic Russians were taken into slavery in the first half of the 17th century alone. Correspondence from the time, including the accounts of an Armenian living in Crimea, detail how Tatar raids and Cossack retribution decimated entire villages in the area, killing or selling off most of the male population as a result.

    Crimean Muslim author Haci Mehmed Senai wrote that the bad blood between Christians and Muslims generated a culture of rampant violence. Therefore, during the Khmelnytsky Uprising of 1648, Senai wrote that Tatar soldiers took joy in killing 10–15 captives per person.

    Blond, tall, with honey-colored eyes: Jewish ownership
    of slaves in the Ottoman Empire
    Yaron Ben-Naeh
    Jew History
    DOI 10.1007/s10835-006-9018-z


    Both Jewish and Muslim sources make it clear that slave owning was a status symbol for
    the middle and upper classes. It was also a precondition for managing a respectable
    household properly.56

    Ottoman Jews engaged in slave owning for the same reasons that contemporary Muslims
    did: prestige, sexual fulfillment, and obedient domestic help.
    He mentions the acquisition of slaves in the cities of Syria, Palestine, and Egypt after the Ottoman conquest of Cyprus in 1570,41 noting, in particular the purchase of adults, and juveniles, from among the Cypriots. The local Muslim population, he adds, appealed to the Sultan to have this practice stopped.Their efforts clearly failed. What is to be more wondered at is why neighbors, relatives, and others maintained silence before the authorities, even though they
    likely knew of the illegal presence of these Muslim slaves in Jewish homes?

    Sexual relations with a female slave was a particularly acute problem. Distinct from Islam, which gives slave owners the right to sexual intercourse with female slaves, whose offspring also belong to him and are considered legitimate heirs, Judaism tends to prohibit this practice, at least “before the fact”.

    Even while a slave, a woman who bore a child to her master – and he admitted being the
    father – upgraded her status and ensured living under his patronage. In the future, her
    children would look after her and legally inherit their father.58 Indeed, the children of female slaves who converted to Judaism were legal heirs and proper Jews, just as was the case for Muslims, under Muslim religious law, which decreed that the children of female slaves were free persons and did not differentiate between the offspring of the legally wedded wife and those of slaves.59

    It is good for this info to be out there.

    No problem with politically incorrect information, provided it’s accurate. That description of enslaved women you quoted didn’t meet that requirement.

    It’s well known that the wide variety of physicalities and skin tones seen throughout today’s Turkey is evidence of slave blood somewhere in the family tree.

    However we might assess the morality of it, concubinage had motives other than sexual satisfaction — namely, to bring as many captives as possible into the fold of Islam and increase the Muslim population. This is exactly what happened, and it wouldn’t have been possible if the infants of slave women had been killed.

    But here’s something to consider …

    BLM is heavily subsidized by the usual suspects, who have a vested interest in fomenting racial and religious conflict, provided it doesn’t involve their own. The clash-of-civilizations paradigm pitting the west against Islam is their baby.

    So get it out of your system and vent about the occasional cruelty of the Ottomans if you must, but bear in mind that if this is your primary focus, you’re being played.

    The Ottomans — as well as the Golden Horde that preceded them — have been relegated to the annals of history. Anybody who imagines that today’s Turks, including the fundamentalist Muslims among them, are one and the same people knows nothing about Turkey. Same goes for the greater Muslim world.

    Ever hear of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi?

    He’s the author of the Risale-i Nur, the second most widely read text in Turkey after The Qur’an. Said Nursi, a veteran commander of troops on the Eastern Front who survived captivity in Siberia, was later given an opportunity to take up arms against Ataturk, and upon refusing to do so, was rewarded with house arrest. For most of his remaining years, he endured imprisonment and legal persecution simply for not acquiescing to the secularizing “revolutions” of the new regime. He explicitly advocated “jihad of the pen,” focusing entirely upon personal responsibility and the presence of God.

    His work established a massive following as well as numerous educational and charitable foundations without which Turkey would be that much poorer.

    Probably don’t know him, right?

    You see, where we focus our attention usually reveals a great deal more about us than it does about the focal point. The MSM won’t touch Said Nursi because

    a) he’s no good for the clash-of-civilizations agenda and
    b) he’s not secular enough for liberal sensibilities.

    The west is weak because its best and brightest minds have been compromised by a zionist worldview or they haven’t learned that diplomacy is a source of strength, preferring to it vain contentions about bygone offenses that sap their energy and resolve to do anything more meaningful than bitch about the “other” all the livelong day.

    I detest homosexuality and abhor the company of any who insist on making it a defining characteristic of themselves. Yet how often have you witnessed me speaking about the topic here? I know better than to pick that battle. It’s simply not a hill to die on.

    Here is an observation in Kaffa, the big slave market port city in Crimea.

    Mikhalon Litvin (Michael the Lithuanian), who left a vivid picture of the Crimean Tatar based on first-hand observation in the mid-16th century, demonstrates that Kaffa was a big slave-market port city, from where a large number of Slavic slaves were exported to the major slave-mart of Asia Minor, and that the slaves were used to carry out the most burdensome tasks also for the Crimean Tatars themselves. Mikhalon Litvin wrote: “The Crimean Tatars have much more slaves than livestock. Therefore they supply them also to other lands. Many ships loaded with arms, clothes and horses came to them one after another from beyond the Pontus and from Asia, and left always from them with slaves. ……. So these plunderers always are in possession not only of slaves for trade with other people but also have slaves for their own estates and to satisfy at home their cruelty and waywardness. In fact we often find among these unfortunate people very strong men, who, if not castrated, are branded on the forehead or on the cheek, and are tormented by day at work and by night in dungeons.”30The fate of Slavic captive-slaves was not bright either in Turkey or in the Crimea.

If we consider that a number of slaves died while being transported throught the steppes, while many others remained in Crimea, it can be safely stated that the demographic losses of Moscovy, Poland-Lithuania, alone ( leaving the Caucasus aside) approached 10000 per year, that is two million in two centuries between 1500-1700.

    Crimea became a huge slave trade center after the fall of Constantinople. Slavery was not big business for Russians or Knights. It was small fries compared to the Tartar Crimean slave trade centered in Crimea.

    The slave trade in the Black Sea region existed long before the predations of the khanate, all the way back to Byzantium.30 The fading influence of the Byzantines, especially after the Battle of Manzikert (1071), allowed groups like the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum to build their wealth on the region’s well-established slave trade.31 As mentioned previously, this trade was expanded from Anatolia to the Baltic by the Genoese trading colonies of the Crimea. Under the leadership of the Giray dynasty, however, the khanate continued this tradition with a new fervor that would leave a lasting social and economic trauma on the region. The devastation their raids wrought on Poland and Ruthenia emptied the countryside and created a great amount of unrest among local Christian populations, resulting in a series of Cossack uprisings in the mid-seventeenth century.32

    This is more detail why this slave trade in Crimea was important to the Ottomans.

    Domination of the Black Sea slave trade had many benefits for those powerful enough to do so. From the mid-fifteenth century until the nineteenth century, the Ottoman Empire reaped the extensive financial benefits of the slave trade, albeit at the cost of fomenting war with its neighbors. This trade expanded greatly within the centuries during which it was under Ottoman “management,” a trend which is evidenced by historical data. The Ottoman slave trade existed to fill a necessity within the empire but also existed as an enterprise growing for its own sake. The more slaves that passed through the empire’s port cities, the more money was made off of their trade, whether the slaves’ final destinations were in the empire or not. This need to increase both actual slave populations in Anatolia (initially), combined with the need to collect increasing revenue from their trafficking, explains the immense demand created, a demand which could only be readily supplied en masse by the Crimean Khanate.

    The impact on the steppes was quite severe. Ukraine of today is the way it is because of these slave raids. It was most effected by this trade since it was the closest area to the Crimean slave traders.

    A folk song about this trade.

    Several Russian, Ukrainian, and Polish folk songs from this period illustrate the impact of the raids on common people in these regions.

    The fires are burning behind the river— The Tatars are dividing their captives

    Our village is burnt and our property plundered.
    Old mother is sabred.
    And my dear is taken into

    (a Ukrainian folk-song)

    Tales and folk songs about it were popular as late as 1948.

    Folk songs and tales such as these were common. Dariusz Kołodziejczyk points out that as late as 1948, a series of local village history projects produced an overwhelming number of tales about the Tatar horror.34

    Most the captives were used as help for agriculture.

    Once the new captives were taken from their homeland, differing fates awaited them. In general slaves were destined to become the “plough and scythe”35 of their masters in agricultural endeavors. Many became galley slaves who were purchased in great numbers by the Porte.36

    A separate fund was created in Muscovy ( now Russia) to pay the ransoms of slaves captured by Tartars.

    The economic impacts of Tatar slave raiding were just as scarring as its social effects but were equally as profitable for the khanate. The raids were so severe in Muscovy by the mid-seventeenth century that a separate fund39 was created by the Ulozhenie (law code) of 1649 to pay the ransoms of slaves captured by the Tatars.40

    I did not mention infanticide. That was a Black website that mentioned that. I know that Islam disallows infanticide. It does allow abortion before four months. I think this is what the website was implying. I never researched that so I do not know if that is truth or not.

    The main difference between African slavery in the US and Slavic Slavery with Ottomans, is that the Slavic slaves blended in with the population. Many Latin Americans had the similar type of blending in with African slaves. Thus, there is less a racial issue there too.

    There’s evidence that Alexander Hamilton was Jewish

    Andrew Porwancher says the founding father was born and raised a Jew because Hamilton’s mother was not buried in a Christian cemetery, and Hamilton attended a Jewish day school.

    By TOBY TABACHNICK April 19, 2018, 1:57 pm 2646 shares


    In his hit musical “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda paints Founding Father Alexander Hamilton as the ultimate outsider, the “bastard, orphan, son of a whore,” who by sheer grit and smarts achieves political greatness, leaving a permanent mark on the American landscape as the architect of its financial system.

    But according to at least one Hamilton scholar, the first Secretary of the Treasury and chief author of “The Federalist Papers” was even more of an outsider than previous biographers have noted — he was also a Jew.

    Andrew Porwancher, who earned his doctorate at Cambridge University and is an associate professor at the University of Oklahoma, began researching the religious roots of Hamilton years before Miranda’s celebrated musical hit Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theater. The evidence he has found that Hamilton was born and raised as a Jew — at least until the age of 13, when his mother died — is pretty convincing.

    Porwancher shared his findings with Pittsburghers on April 9 at the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning, his appearance sponsored by Pitt’s Department of Jewish Studies and History. His upcoming book, “The Jewish Founding Founder: Alexander Hamilton’s Hidden Life,” is expected to be published by Harvard University Press in 2019.

    The support Porwancher has for his thesis is not definitive — he has, for example, no records of Hamilton’s bris or bar mitzvah, assuming they occurred — but it is compelling.

    The story begins on the Danish colony of St. Croix, where before Hamilton was born, his mother, Rachel Faucette, married a man named Johann Michael Levine, who sometimes went by the name of Lavien, a Sephardic version of the name Levine. Porwancher is convinced that Levine was Jewish and that Rachel must have converted in order to marry him, as that was the law of Denmark at the time.

    “Levine is the quintessential Jewish name,” Porwancher said, and although he is not registered in official Danish records as Jewish, neither are other known prominent Jews who were living on St. Croix at the time. Moreover, Levine was a merchant, which was a “typical profession for Jews.”

    Decades later, Hamilton’s own grandson described Levine as “a rich Danish Jew.”

    Rachel and Levine had a child, who was not baptized as an infant. They had a troubled marriage, however, with Levine having Rachel imprisoned for “whoredom,” said Porwancher. When she was released, she fled St. Croix for the island of Nevis, a British colony about 150 miles south. It was there — and while she was still married to Levine — that she met the Scotsman James Hamilton, who fathered the future Founding Father out of wedlock.

    If Rachel did convert, Porwancher said, then “according to the Talmud, her children are still Jewish.”

    He forges relationships with American Jewry that we don’t see with any other Founding Father.

    Porwancher has found support for his theory that not only was Hamilton Jewish according to Jewish law, but that he was raised as a Jew. For example, he is not listed in the baptismal records of the island, and — believe it or not — he attended a Jewish day school.

    “These are facts known by Hamilton scholars,” Porwancher said, adding that “for external political reasons, it is unlikely that a Jewish school would take in a Christian child.”

    When Rachel died in 1768 back in St. Croix, she was not buried in a Christian cemetery, but instead on the grounds of her sister’s home; there was no Jewish cemetery in St. Croix at the time. She kept the last name Levine until her death.

    Hamilton maintained a “lifetime of silence on his childhood,” Porwancher said, postulating that he “needed a nominal pretense of a Christian background” in order to advance socially and professionally.

    At some point, Hamilton began identifying as a Christian, at least by the age of 17, when he arrived in New York. Still, Hamilton’s connections to the Jewish community continued throughout his life.

    “He forges relationships with American Jewry that we don’t see with any other Founding Father,” explained Porwancher, noting that he defended Jewish rights in the courts, and that he put a Jew on the board of Columbia University — the first Jew on the board of any American college.

    Moreover, Porwancher noted, Hamilton had “an abiding apathy to Christianity. He never mentioned church and never took communion. He was only nominally Christian.”

    But perhaps most notably, Hamilton spoke out against anti-Semitism.

    “That Hamilton was willing to speak out against anti-Semitism even though he did not identify as Jewish in adulthood is arguably just as important as any finding about his Jewish identity in childhood,” Porwancher said. “His story is a reminder that the fight against anti-Semitism in America, which continues in our own day, is not solely a Jewish responsibility but the obligation of all Americans committed to the principle of religious liberty.” PJC

    Enslavement by Muslims in India During the Mughal Period

    Internecine fights, provincials wars , temple destructions, looting of temples and bonded labors were part and parcel of historical lay of land of India before the Muslim power captured India,

    That gives no right for the barbarity of the muslims in India. The barbarity and savagery of Islamic brutality in India was in magnitude far higher than anything that happened before.

    Colonialism stopped Slavery throughout the world later. Had colonialism had not happened, slavery might have still existed.

  206. Malla says:

    Andre Wink summarizes the slavery in 8th and 9th century India as follows,

    (During the invasion of Muhammad al-Qasim), invariably numerous women and children were enslaved. The sources insist that now, in dutiful conformity to religious law, ‘the one-fifth of the slaves and spoils’ were set apart for the caliph’s treasury and despatched to Iraq and Syria. The remainder was scattered among the army of Islam. At Rūr, a random 60,000 captives reduced to slavery. At Brahamanabad 30,000 slaves were allegedly taken. At Multan 6,000. Slave raids continued to be made throughout the late Umayyad period in Sindh, but also much further into Hind, as far as Ujjain and Malwa. The Abbasid governors raided Punjab, where many prisoners and slaves were taken.


    — Al Hind, André Wink
    Levi notes that these figures cannot be entirely dismissed as exaggerations since they appear to be supported by the reports of contemporary observers. In the early 11th century Tarikh al-Yamini, the Arab historian Al-Utbi recorded that in 1001 the armies of Mahmud of Ghazni conquered Peshawar and Waihand (capital of Gandhara) after Battle of Peshawar (1001), “in the midst of the land of Hindustan”, and enslaved thousands. Later, following his twelfth expedition into India in 1018–19, Mahmud is reported to have returned to with such a large number of slaves that their value was reduced to only two to ten dirhams each. This unusually low price made, according to Al-Utbi, “merchants came from distant cities to purchase them, so that the countries of Central Asia, Iraq and Khurasan were swelled with them, and the fair and the dark, the rich and the poor, mingled in one common slavery”.

    Delhi Sultanate (12th to 16th century AD)
    During the Delhi Sultanate period (1206–1555), references to the abundant availability of low-priced Indian slaves abound. Many of these Indian slaves were used by Muslim nobility in the subcontinent, but others were exported to satisfy the demand in international markets. Some slaves converted to Islam to receive protection. Children fathered by Muslim masters on non-Muslim slaves would be raised Muslim. Non-Muslim women, who Muslim soldiers and elites had slept with, would convert to Islam to avoid rejection by their own communities. Scott Levi states that “Movement of considerable numbers of Hindus to the Central Asian slave markets was largely a product of the state building efforts of the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire in South Asia”.
    The revenue system of the Delhi Sultanate produced a considerable proportion of the Indian slave population as these rulers, and their subordinate shiqadars, ordered their armies to abduct large numbers of locals as a means of extracting revenue. While those communities that were loyal to the Sultan and regularly paid their taxes were often excused from this practice, taxes were commonly extracted from other, less loyal groups in the form of slaves. Thus, according to Barani, the Shamsi Balban (r. 1266–87) ordered his shiqadars in Awadh to enslave those peoples resistant to his authority, implying those who refused to supply him with tax revenue. Sultan Alauddin Khalji (r. 1296–1316) is similarly reported to have legalised the enslavement of those who defaulted on their revenue payments. This policy continued during the Mughal era.

    An even greater number of people were enslaved as a part of the efforts of the Delhi Sultans to finance their expansion into new territories. Qutb-ud-din Aybak invaded Gujarat in 1197 and placed some 20,000 people in bondage. Roughly six years later, he enslaved an additional 50,000 people during his conquest of Kalinjar. Later in the 13th century, Balban’s campaign in Ranthambore, reportedly defeated the Indian army and yielded “captives beyond computation”.

    Levi states that the forcible enslavement of non-Muslims during Delhi Sultanate was motivated by the desire for war booty and military expansion. This gained momentum under the Khalji and Tughluq dynasties, as being supported by available figures. Zia uddin Barani suggested that Sultan Alauddin Khalji owned 50,000 slave-boys, in addition to 70,000 construction slaves. Sultan Firuz Shah Tughluq is said to have owned 180,000 slaves, roughly 12,000 of whom were skilled artisans. China, Turkistan, Persia, and Khurusan were sources of male and female slaves sold to Tughluq India. The Yuan Dynasty Emperor in China sent 100 slaves of both sexes to the Tughluq Sultan, and he replied by also sending the same number of slaves of both sex to China.

    There is a reason why V.S. Naipaul concluded that India (one of the great centers of civilizations on planet earth) was a “wounded civilization”, wounded spiritually by the ravages of foreign Islamic invasions.
    Qutbuddin Aibak entered upon a series of conquests in India. He dispatched Ikhtiyaruddin Bakhtiyar Khalji to the East and himself concentrated in Hindustan proper. He captured Kol (modern Aligarh) in 1194. There some were converted to Islam, but those who stood by their ancient faith were slain with the sword. T.P. Hughes gives the legal position: If a captive embraced Islam on the field of battle he was a free man; but if he were made captive, and afterwards embraced Islam, the change of creed did not emancipate him. Women captives were invariably taken prisoner.


    In 1195 when Indian Raja (King) Bhim was attacked by the Muslim foreign invader Aibak 20,000 native Indian slaves were captured, and 50,000 at Kalinjar in 1202. The temples were converted into mosques, writes Hasan Nizami, and the voices of the summoners to prayer ascended to the highest heavens, and the very name of idolatry was annihilated. Minhaj Siraj assigns twenty (lunar) years to Muslim foreign invader Qutbuddin’s career in India from the first taking of Delhi up to his death, both as a commander of Sultan Muizzuddin and as an independent ruler. During this period Aibak captured the Indian regions/cities of Hansi, Meerut, Delhi, Ranthambhor and Kol. When foreign Muslim Sultan Muizzuddin personally mounted another campaign against India, Aibak proceeded as far as Peshawar to meet him, and the two together attacked the Khokhar stronghold in the Koh-i-Jud or the Salt Range. The defeated native Indian Hindus (Khokhars) fled to the highest in the mountains. They were pursued. Those that escaped the sword fled to the dense depth of the jungle; others were massacred or taken captive. Great plunder was obtained and many Indian slaves.(Minhaj 483-84.) According to Farishtah three to four hundred thousand Khokhars were converted to Islam by Muizzuddin;(Farishtah, I, 59-60) but this figure is inflated. More than a hundred years later, Amir Khusrau refers to Khokhars as a non-Muslim tribe, and the way they were constantly attacked and killed by Sultans Iltutmish and Balban confirms Khusrau’s contention.(Amir Khusrau, Tughlaq Nama, Aurangabad text, 128.) Minhaj also says that the native Khokhars were not annihilated in this affair (Muizzuddin-Aibak attack) by any means, and always rebelled and gave great trouble in after years.(Minhaj, 484n.)

    Under Aibak most of India from Delhi to Gujarat, and Lakhnauti to Lahore, was brought under the sway of the foreign Muslim Turks. In his time a large number of places were attacked and many more prisoners were captured than for which actual figures are available. Figures of slaves made during campaigns of Kanauj, Banaras (where the Muslims occupied “a thousand” temples),(Farishtah, I, 58.) Ajmer (attacked thrice), Gujarat, Bayana and Gwalior are not available. Similar is the case with regard to Bihar and Bengal. About the end of the twelfth or the beginning of the thirteenth century, Ikhtiyaruddin Bakhtiyar Khalji marched into Bihar and attacked the University centres at Nalanda, Vikramshila and Uddandpur.( Opinions differ on the date of this raid. Ishwari Prasad, Medieval India, 138, places it probably in 1197; Wolseley Haig, C.H.1, III, 45-46, a little earlier than this, and Habibullah, 70 and 84, in 1202-03.) The native common people became an easy prey to capture and enslavement. But no figures of such captives are known. Ibn Asir only says that Qutbuddin Aibak made “war against the provinces of Hind (India)” He killed many, and returned with prisoners and booty.(Ibn Asir, Kamil-ut-Tawarikh, E.D., II, 250). In Banaras, according to the same author, “the slaughter of the Hindus was immense, none was spared except women and children,” who would have been enslaved as per practice. Habibullah writes that Muslim sway extended from Banaras through the strip of Shahabad, Patna, Monghyr and Bhagalpur districts,(Habibullah, op.cit., 147) and repeated references to the presence of Muslims in this tract from the early times indicates that taking of slaves and conversion was common in the region. Fakhr-i-Mudabbir informs us that as a result of the Turkish achievements under Muizzuddin and Aibak, Eleven poor (Muslim) householder became owner of numerous slaves.(Tarikh-i-Fakhruddin Mubarak Shah, 20).

    The narratives of contemporary and later chroniclers should not lead us to the conclusion that taking of Hindus as slaves was a child’s play. There was stiff resistance to these foreign Muslim conquests and Muslim rule. Besides, the Sultans of Delhi had always to deal with a number of problems simultaneously. Most of the time of Sultan Iltutmish (1210-1236) was spent in suppressing his Turkish opponents, Qutbi and Muizzi Amirs in Delhi and rivals Yaldoz and Qubacha in Punjab and Sindh. He also faced the threat of invasion from the Mongol conqueror Chingiz (Ghenghis) Khan and the Khwarizmi Prince Jalaluddin Mangbarni fleeing before Chingiz. Therefore it was only sixteen years after his accession that he could march against the native Hindu kingdom of Ranthambhor in 1226. During this period many native Hindu kingdoms subdued by Aibak were becoming independent. Mandor near Jodhpur was attacked a little later. Here “much booty fell into the hands” of the victors, which obviously included slaves also.(Minhaj, 611) The year 1231 witnessed his invasion of the native kingdom of Gwalior where he captured a large number of Indian slaves. In 1234-35 he attacked the native kingdom of Ujjain, broke its temple of Mahakal, and as usual made captives of native women and children of the recalcitrant.(Farishtah, I, 66)

    Slave-taking of natives a matter of policy of foreign Muslim invaders of India

    Some Ulama therefore approached the “pious” Sultan Iltutmish to rule according to the Shariat and confront the native Hindus with choice between Islam and death. Muslims had set up their rule and so that India had become Dar-ul-Islam. Any opposition to it was an act of rebellion. The native Hindus who naturally resisted this foreign Muslim occupation were considered to be rebels. Besides they were idolaters (mushrik) and could not be accorded the status of Kafirs, of the People of the Book – Christians and Jews. For them the law provided only Islam or death. Islamic jurisprudence had crystallized over the last five centuries. Besides the involvement of the four schools of Islamic jurisprudence, Shaikh Burhauddin Ali’s Hidayah (530-596 H./1135-1199 C.E.), the Compendium of Sunni Law, based on the Quran and the Hadis, was also readily available in the time of Iltutmish. Muslim scriptures and treatises advocated jihad against idolaters for whom the law advocated only Islam or death.


    In such a situation the answer of the Sultan to the Ulama was: “But at the moment in India the Muslims are so few that they are like salt (in a large dish) However, after a few years when in the capital and the regions and all the small towns, when the Muslims are well established and the troops are larger it would be possible to give Hindus, the choice of death or Islam.”(Ziyauddin Barani, Sana-i-Muhammadi, trs. in Medieval India Quarterly, (Aligarh), I, Part III, 100-105.) Such an apologetic plea was not necessary to put forward. The fact was that the this foreign Muslim regime was giving a choice to native Indian Hindus between Islam and death only. Those who were killed in battle were dead and gone; but their dependents were made slaves. They ceased to be Hindus; they were made Musalmans in course of time if not immediately after captivity.

    There was thus no let up in the policy of slave-taking. Minhaj Siraj writes that Ulugh Khan Balban�s “taking of captives, and his capture of the dependents of the great Ranas (native Hindu Rajput Lords) cannot be recounted”. Talking of his war in Avadh against native king Trailokyavarman of the Chandela dynasty (Dalaki va Malaki of Minhaj), the chronicler says that “All the infidels wives, sons and dependents and children fell into the hands of the victors.” In 1253, in his campaign against the native Hindu kingdom of Ranthambhor also, Balban enslaved many people. In 1259, in an attack on Haryana region of India, many women and children were enslaved.(Minhaj 680, 683, 391, 828; E.D., II, 348, 367, 371, 380-81, Farishtah, I, 73.) Twice Balban led expeditions against the native Indian regions of Kampil, Patiali, and Bhojpur, and in the process enslaved a large number of women and children. In Katehar he ordered a general massacre of the male population of over eight years of age and carried away women and children. In 658 H. (1260 C.E.) Ulugh Khan Balban marched with a large force on a campaign in the region of Ranthambhor, Mewat and Siwalik. He made a proclamation that a soldier who brought a live captive would be rewarded with two silver tankahs and one who brought the head of a dead one would get one silver tankah. Soon three to four hundred living and dead were brought to his presence.(Farishtah, I. 73.) Like Balban other slave commanders of Iltutmish, or the “Shamsia Maliks of Hind” were marching up and down the Hindustan, raiding towns and villages and enslaving native Indian people. This was the situation prevailing from Lakhnauti to Lahore and from Ajmer to Ujjain. The native Hindus used to reclaim their lands after the Muslim invaders had passed through them with fire and sword, and Turkish armies used to repeat their attacks to regain control of the cities so lost. But the captives once taken became slaves and then Musalmans for ever. The exact figures of such slaves have not been mentioned and therefore cannot be computed. All that is known is that they were captured in droves. Even in the reign of a weak Sultan like Nasiruddin, son of Iltutmish, the ingress of captives was very large.

    Enslavement under the Khaljis

    The process of enslavement during war gained momentum under the Khaljis and the Tughlaqs. In two or three generations after Iltutmish the Islamic foreign invaders were digging their heels firmly into India. Their territories were expanding and their armies were becoming larger. All the time, the desire to convert or liquidate the native Indian idolaters remained ever restless. Achievements in this regard of course depended on the strength, resources and determination of individual Muslim rulers. For example, although Jalaluddin Khalji was an old and vacillating king, even he did not just remain content with expressing rage at the fact of not being able to deal with the native Hindus according to the law.(Barani, 216-17.) During six years of his reign (June 1290 -July 1296), he mounted expeditions and captured prisoners. While suppressing the revolt of Malik Chhajju, a scion of the dynasty he had ousted, he marched towards Bhojpur in Farrukhabad district and ruthlessly attacked native Hindus in the region of Katehar (later Rohilkhand). During his campaign in Ranthambhor he broke temples, sacked the neighbouring Jhain and took booty and captives, making “a hell of paradise”.(Khusrau, Miftah-ul-Fatuh, Aligarh text, 1954, 35-36; Barani, 213.) Later on Malwa was attacked and large quantity of loot, naturally including slaves, was brought to Delhi.(Khusrau, Miftah-ul-Fatuh, 38-39; Farishtah, I, 94.) His last expedition was directed against the native Indian kingdom of Gwalior.(Barani, 222-23; Farishtah, I, 95-97.)

    Jalaluddin’s nephew and successor Alauddin Khalji (1296-1316) turned out to be a very strong king. He marched against the native Indian kigdom of Devagiri in 1296. On his way through Gondwana and Khandesh he took prisoners a large number of Mahajans (chiefs, Jana in Sanskrit = people. Mahajan = great People, men of importance) and cultivators, and ransomed them for wealth.(Farishtah, I, 95-96.) At Devagiri he enslaved a number of the Raja’s (King’s) relatives, and Brahmans and Mahajans. He put them in shackles and chains and paraded them in front of the fort to pressure the besieged king. After victory, he released many of the captives because of compulsions of the situation. He was only a prince who had marched to the Deccan without the Sultan’s permission. But his taking of native slaves in large numbers was in consonance with the policy of Muslim sultans and gave a foretaste of what was to follow during the course of his reign.

    After ascending the throne, Alauddin Khalji embarked upon a series of conquests. He turned out to be the greatest king of the Sultanate period (cir. 1200-1500), and his success as regards capture of Indian slaves was stupendous. He started by seizing the families and slaves of his brothers and brother-in-law.(Barani, 249; Farishtah, I, 102: Badaoni, Ranking, I, 248.) In 1299 he dispatched a large army for the invasion of the Western Indian region of Gujarat. There all the major towns and cities like Naharwala, Asaval, Vanmanthali, Surat, Cambay, Somnath etc. were sacked. There the temples were broken, wealth looted and large numbers of captives of both sexes captured, including the famous Malik Kafur(Isami, 243; Barani, 251-52.) and the Vaghela king’s consort Kamala Devi (For detailed references see Lal, Khaljis, 69-71.). In the words of Wassaf, the Muslim army in the sack of Somnath “took captive a great number of handsome and elegant maidens, amounting to 20,000, and children of both sexes the Muhammadan army brought the country to utter ruin, and destroyed the lives of native inhabitants, and plundered the cities and captured their offspring” (Wassaf, Bk. IV, 448. Also trs. in E.D. III, 43.). In 1301 Ranthambhor was attacked and in 1303 Chittor. In the invasion of the Hindu kingdom of Chittor, 30,000 people were massacred in cold blood and obviously females and minors of their families were captured.(Khazain, Habib trs., 49) Slaves were also taken in large numbers in the expeditions to native kingdoms of Malwa, Sevana and Jalor (1305-1311). Maybe the number of captives obtained from Rajasthan was not that large knowing the bravery and chivalry of the fierce Rajputs and their prevailing customs of Jauhar and Saka. Jauhar = At the time of impending defeat against muslim invaders, Hindu Rajput women & children would collectively jump in fire to protect their honour while Saka = the Hindu men would then go and fight to the death against the foreign Muslim invader army as their wives and children were already dead. But the highly successful Deccan campaigns of Malik Kafur must have supplied a large corps of native captives.

    The walls of the towers popularly known as Chor Minar in modern Hauz Khas Enclave are pierced with 225 holes. In medieval India apertures on the walls of towers were used by Muslims not only as windows but also to display heads of captured and executed prisoners. The custom was to cut off their heads and stick them into those holes, to be seen by everybody. During wars, only the heads of chiefs were displayed; those of common soldiers were simply piled into pyramids.

    Sultan Alauddin’s collection of slaves was a matter of successful routine. Under him the Sultanate had grown so strong that, according to Shams Siraj Afif, in his days “no one dared to make an outcry.” Similar is the testimony of the Alim and Sufi Amir Khusrau. In Nuh Sipehr he writes that “the Turks, whenever they please, can seize, buy or sell any native Hindu.” No wonder, under him the process of enslavement went on with great vigour. As an example, he had 50,000 slave boys in his personal service (Afif, 272) and 70,000 slaves worked continuously on his buildings.(Barani, 341.) It is Barani alone who writes about the number of slaves working on buildings and Afif alone who speaks about the personal “boys” of Sultan Alauddin who looked after his pigeons. Ziyauddin Barani’s detailed description of the Slave Markets in Delhi and elsewhere during the reign of Alauddin Khalji, shows that fresh batches of captives were constantly arriving there.(Barani, 318; Lal, Khaljis, 214-15)

    Enslavement of native Indians under the foreign Islamic Tughlaqs


    All sultans were keen on making slaves, but Muhammad Tughlaq became notorious for enslaving people. He appears to have outstripped even Alauddin Khalji and his reputation in this regard spread far and wide. Shihabuddin Ahmad Abbas writes about him thus: “The Sultan never ceases to show the greatest zeal in making war upon native infidels. Everyday thousands of slaves are sold at a very low price, so great is the number of prisoners”.(Ishwari Prasad, Qaraunh Turks, 39-40 citing Battutah, Def. and Sang., II, 212-14.) Muhammad Tughlaq did not only enslave people during campaigns, he was also very fond of purchasing and collecting foreign and Indian slaves. According to Ibn Battuta one of the reasons of estrangement between Muhammad Tughlaq and his father Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq, when Muhammad was still a prince, was his extravagance in purchasing slaves. Even as Sultan, he made extensive conquests. He subjugated the country as far as Dwarsamudra, Malabar, Kampil, Warangal, Lakhnauti, Satgaon, Sonargaon, Nagarkot and Sambhal to give only few prominent place-names.(Qaraunah Turks, 96, 126, 129-30, 173.) There were sixteen major rebellions in his reign which were ruthlessly suppressed.(Mahdi Husain Tughlaq Dynasty, 195-257.) In all these conquests and rebellions, slaves were taken with great gusto. For example, in the year 1342 Halajun rose in rebellion against these foreign Muslim rulers in Lahore. He was aided by the native Khokhar chief Kulchand. They were defeated. “About three hundred women of the rebels were taken captive, and sent to the fort of Gwalior where they were seen by Ibn Battutah.” (Qaraunah Turks, 148 citing Battutah, Def. and Sang, III, 332.) Such was their influx that Ibn Battutah writes: “At (one) time there arrived in Delhi some female infidel captives, ten of whom the Vazir sent to me. I gave one of them to the man who had brought them to me, but he was not satisfied. My companion took three young girls, and I do not know what happened to the rest.”(Battutah, 123.) Iltutmish, Muhammad Tughlaq and Firoz Tughlaq sent gifts of slaves to Khalifas outside India. To the Chinese emperor Muhammad Tughlaq sent, besides other presents, “100 Hindu slaves, 100 slave girls, accomplished in song and dance” and another 15 young slaves.(Qaraunah Turks, 138-39.)

    Ibn Battutah’s eye-witness account of the Sultan’s gifting captured native Indian slave girls to foreign Muslim nobles or arranging their marriages with Muslims on a large scale on the occasion of the two Ids, corroborates the statement of Abbas. Ibn Battutah writes that during the celebrations in connection with the two Ids in the court of Muhammad bin Tughlaq, daughters of Indian Hindu Rajas (Kings) and those of commoners, captured during the course of the year were distributed among nobles, officers and important foreign slaves. On the fourth day men slaves are married and on the fifth slave-girls. On the sixth day men and women slaves are married off.(Battutah, 63; Hindi trs. by S.A.A. Rizvi in Tughlaq Kalin Bharat, part I, Aligarh 1956, 189.) This was all in accordance with the Islamic law. According to it, slaves cannot marry on their own without the consent of their proprietors.(Hamilton, Hedaya. I, 161). The marriage of an infidel couple is not dissolved by their jointly embracing the faith. In the present case the slaves were probably already converted and their marriages performed with the initiative and permission the Sultan himself were valid. Thousands of non-Muslim women (Afif, 265. also 119-120.) were captured by the Muslims in the yearly campaigns of Firoz Tughlaq, and under him the id celebrations were held on lines similar to those of his predecessor. In short, under the Tughlaqs the inflow of women captives never ceased.

    Similar was the case with males, especially of tender and young age. Firoz Tughlaq acquired them by all kinds of methods and means, so that he collected 180,000 of them. Shams Siraj Afif, the contemporary historian, writes that under Firoz, “slaves became too numerous” and adds that “the institution took root in every centre of the land”. So that even after the Sultanate broke up into a number of kingdoms, slave-hunting continued in every Muslim centre of India.

    David Duke had an informative video about Jewish dominance in the slave trade, in which the main authority he cited was a Jewish academic historian. I wanted to link to the video and tried to find it at his website but could not.

    If you saw the video somewhere and now you can’t find it on his website that means nothing, really. Before he had the capability of hosting videos at he was posting them at Jewtube where they’re of course gone now. Until August 2017 I think it was of the Charlottesville events you could buy all of Duke’s books through Amazon. The two of his books which I have and which might possibly make mention of jews involved in the slave trade would be My Awakening and Jewish Supremacism but there’s no such entry in their indexes which doesn’t mean they don’t mention it.

    For about a year until very recently I was listening to Don Black and then David Duke every weekday. He doesn’t take things down because of Jewish complaints. I got tired of listening to him because he’s losing his edge, maybe because of getting older. He repeats himself incessantly saying the exact same things over and over and over again for weeks. He has guests on his radio show but almost all of them have to be quiet while he keeps repeating himself.

    He’s stuck on the racial identity claim that jews make as part of the zionism claim to Palestine. Ignoring their well-known skill in lies and deception, he falls for that big lie hook and sinker because he cites the jews themselves as the authority for the jews claiming to have some kind of moral ownership of Palestine because they’re supposedly descendents of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob which has been disproven by historians for over 50 years and when Arthur Koestler wrote the nonfiction bestseller The Thirteenth Tribe in 1976 it wasn’t his idea; it was the mainstream consensus of historians that the Ashkenazi Yiddish speaking jews of Eastern Europe were descendents of a Turkic people who were converts around 900 AD who became the Khazars with their king referred to with the title of Kagan, which is the last name of a Supreme Court justice.

    David Duke scrupulously either ignores or dismisses the Khazar origins of Ashkenazi jews. I’ve heard him taking with Nathanael Kapner, a convert to Orthodox Catholicism, a man who dresses up in a home-made monk costume and flies from Idaho to DC and NYC to walk around the streets and talk to jews about how he became a Catholic. Kapner too ignores the Khazar origins of Ashkenazi jews. I think it’s because both Duke and Kapner identify as WNs and they subscribe to the view of jews being a race.

    David Duke to the best of my knowledge ignores the work of Shlomo Sand and his 2009 English translation of the book The Invention of the Jewish People where Sand shows very convincingly, and with much more information than was available to Koestler, that Ashkenazi jews are not “racial jews.” In my mind that’s Duke’s greatest intellectual weakness for perpetuating the lie of jewish zionists that they have some kind of racial kinship shared among jews in general.

    Duke is, as you suggest, very careful to avoid saying things that could lead to him being charged with the thoughtcrime of holocaust denial, which is like the punishments exacted on Galileo Galilei for saying that the earth goes around the sun and not vice-versa.

    Sufferings of the enslaved native Indians


    This is the version of the slave-capturing victors. The humiliation and suffering of the victims finds no mention in Muslim chronicles. Sustained experience of grief and pain and loss of dignity and self-respect used to turn them into dumb driven animals. The practice and pattern of breaking the spirit of the captives under Aibak, Iltutmish and Balban, indeed throughout the medieval period, was the same as during the days of the Khaljis and the Tughlaqs. Only one case may be cited as an instance. Balban, when he was Ulugh Khan Khan-i-Azam, once brought to Delhi (in about 1260) two hundred fifty ‘Hindu leading men and men of position from Mewar and Siwalik, bound and shackled and chained. During the expedition he had proclaimed that a royal soldier would be rewarded with two silver tankahs if he captured a person alive and one tankah if he brought the head of a dead one. They brought to his presence 300 to 400 living and dead everyday. The reigning Sultan Nasiruddin ordered the death of all leading men. The others accompanying them were shaken to the bones and completely tamed. Depiction of their suffering is found in an Indian work – Kanhadade Prabandha. Written in old Rajasthani or old Gujarati, it was composed in mid-fifteenth century and records the exploits of native Indian Hindu King Kanhardeva of Jalor against the foreigner Alauddin’s General Ulugh Khan who had attacked Gujarat in 1299 and taken a number of prisoners. In the Sorath (Saurashtra) region they made people captive – Brahmanas and children, and women, in fact, people of all (description) huddled them and tied them by straps of raw hide. The number of prisoners made by them was beyond counting. The prisoners quarters (bandikhana) were entrusted to the care of the foreign Turks who were often extremely ruthless to native Indians. The prisoners suffered greatly and wept aloud. During the day they bore the heat of the scorching sun, without shade or shelter as they were [in the sandy desert region of Rajasthan], and the shivering cold during the night under the open sky. Children, torn away from their mother’s breasts and homes, were crying. Each one of the captives seemed as miserable as the other. Already writhing in agony due to thirst, the pangs of hunger added to their distress. Some of the captives were sick, some unable to sit up. Some had no shoes to put on and no clothes to wear. Some had iron shackles on their feet. Separated from each other, they were huddled together and tied with straps of hide. Children were separated from their parents, the wives from their husbands, thrown apart by this cruel raid. Young and old were seen writhing in agony, as loud wailing arose from that part of the camp where they were all huddled up Weeping and wailing, they were hoping that some miracle might save them even now.(Padmanabh, Kanhadade Prabandh, trs. Bhatnagar, 11, 16, 18) The miracle did happen and native Indian King Kanhardeva was successful in rescuing them from these ruthless foreign Islamic slavers after a tough fight.

    But the description provides the scenario in which the brave and the strong, the elite and the plebeian, were made captives and their spirit broken. That is how Timur was enabled to massacre in one day about 100,000 of captives he had taken prisoner on his march to Delhi. They had been distributed among his officers and kept tied and shackled. That is how Maulana Nasiruddin Umar, a man of learning in Timur’s camp, slew with his own sword fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives. If the prisoners could break their bonds, such a carnage could not have been possible. Prisoners were often brought to Timur’s presence with hands bound to their necks.(azdi, Zafar Nama, II, 92-95; Mulfuzat-i-Timuri, trs. E.D., III, 436, 451.) Jahangir (1605-27) also writes that “prisoners were conducted to my presence yoked together.”(Tarikh-i-Salim Shahi, 165. This was the fate of the captives throughout the medieval period and therefore there is no need to cite any more instances.)Most of them were kept yoked together even when they were sent out to be sold in foreign lands or markets in India.

    The captives, on their part, clung together and did not separate from one another even in their darkest hour. Nor were they permitted an opportunity to do so under Islamic law which the victors always observed with typical Muslim zeal. The Hidayah lays down that “if the Mussulmans subdue an infidel territory before any capitation tax be established, the inhabitants, together with their wives and children, are all plunder, and the property of the state, as it is lawful to reduce to slavery all infidels, whether they be Kitabees, Majoosees or idotters.”(Hedaya, Hamilton, II, 213.) The Hidayah also lays down that “whoever slays an infidel is entitled to his private property,” (Hedaya, Hamilton, II, 181) which invariably included his women and children. That is how a large number of people were involved, whether it was a matter of taking captives, making converts, or ordering massacres. About women and children of a single family of a slain infidel, or of droves of slaves captured in an attack on a region or territory Fakhre Mudabbir furnishes information on, both counts during the campaigns of Muhammad Ghauri and Qutbuddin Aibak. He informs us “that during their expeditions ghulams (slaves) of all descriptions (har jins) were captured in groups and droves (jauq jauq) so that even a poor householder (or soldier) who did not possess a single slave (earlier) became the owner of numerous slaves” (Tarikh-i-Fakkruddin Mubarak Shah, ed. Denison Ross, 20.)

    In short, the captives swam or sank together so that if they were captured they were taken in large numbers. A manifest example of this phenomenon is that during a rebellion-suppressing expedition of Muhammad bin Tughlaq in the Deccan (1327), all the eleven sons of the Raja (King) of Kampil (situated on the River Tungbhadra, Bellary District, Karnataka, South India), were captured together, and made Muslims.(Battutah, 95. Ishwari Prasad, Qarunab Turks, 65-66; Mahdi Husain, Tughlaq Dynasty, 207-208.) Generally, able bodied men and soldiers were massacred, and their helpless women and children were made prisoners in large numbers or groups.(Barani, 56; Afif, 119-120; Lal, Growth of Muslim Population, 106, 113-16, 211-217 for copious references from Muslim chronicles.) Similarly, from the time of entering India, up to the time of reaching the environs of Delhi, Amir Timur had “taken more than 100,000 Indian infidels and Hindu prisoners”(Mulfuzat-i-Timuri, E.D., III, 435-36; Z.N. Yazdi II, 192, Rauzat-us-safa, VI, 109.) Timur massacred them all, but the fact that people could be made slaves in such unbelievably large numbers was due to their keeping together through thick and thin, howsoever desperate the situation. Nobody knew the reality better than Ibn Battuta who travelled in India extensively. During his sojourn he found villages after villages deserted.(Battuta, 10, 20, 155-56.) Nature’s ravages or man’s atrocities might have made them flee, or more probably they would have been enslaved and converted, or just carried away. But the fact of habitations being completely deserted shows that large groups of native Indians suffered together at the hands of ruthless barbaric foreign Islamic invaders and did not forsake one another in times of trial and tribulation. This factor swelled the number of slaves.

    Slavery improved under Muslim rules . It was worse under Hindu kings. Carrying slaves for many purposes after winning wars were regular features of the Hindu wars .

    Slavery was not only institutionalized but was given religious supports obligations ,and was provided with legal codification by Hinduism without any escape route for the slaves ,serfs and untouchables for millennia It still exists today only modified by language of description and not changed beyond language really.

    Only a buffoon will make a claim like that after all the evidence I have posted. But if you mean Islam allowed people of lower castes more equality and the ability to be religious heads (like an Imam or qadi) which Hinduism denied to them, yes you are right. In that way Islam was a moral improvement over Brahmanical Hinduism, I agree. But the truth is, if there is any power which did the most for the rights of lower castes, it were the British.

    Idiotic statement. Many poor Hindus suffered because of the Islamic invasions, lootings, pillaging and and brutal slavery that followed. So not only the elites. What Mr Naipaul said is common sense believed by majority of Hindus. Mr Naipaul also praised Islam as it allowed a lower caste Hindu converts to Islam to become a religious scholar/Imam which was closed to them in Hinduism.

    Romilla Thapar who exposed the lies behind the partisan writings of the British .

    Read the posts again. It were not British scholars but Islamic scholars who wrote about the mass slavery of native Indians by foreign Muslim invaders. I respect Romila Thapar. What she wrote was that, the first people to research the pre-Islamic history of India were the British. Muslims were the first to write history but did no research on pre-Islamic Indian history. And the British divided Indian history into pre Islamic Hindu India and later Islamic India which is normal common sense. Islam did not exist in India before the invasion of Sindh, it was a foreign import on Indian soil so how is that theory wrong? However Romila Thapar continues that Hindu India is wrong as the early British scholars ignored the Buddhist-Jain side of pre-Islamic Indian history as the early officers of the British East India Company were highly influenced by Brahmins pundits who pushed their version of pre-Islamic Indian history on the British scholars. But excavations carried out by Europeans archaeologists were showing more Buddhist sites than Hindus sites and only later did they start showing interest in Buddhist India. Also they came across writings of Chinese scholar monks who came to India.
    However Rolima Thapar goes wrong in typical Marxist manner in claiming that the British tried to show themselves as protectors of the Hindus from Muslims. This is idiotic. The truth is when British power was rising, the most powerful force in India were the Hindu Maratha Empire, not the Islamic Mughal. Tipu Sultan was a local power, Maratha Empire was spread far and wide in India. After Emperor Aurangzeb, the Mughal empire was in tatters and the Maratha Empire grew. So powerful were the Marathas that the Mughal throne was itself protected by the Hindu Maratha Holkars. So this theory that British had to position themselves as protectors of Hindus is wrong. However Romila Thappar is right in saying that Hindu and Islamic cultures were mixing with each other to create a mixed culture. BTW Indian nationalists consider Romila Thappar as an anti-national and traitor to nation.
    The British were neutral in this Hindu Muslim fiasco. Some British officers were pro Hindu some were pro Muslim, most were neutral. The pro Muslim British officers considered pagan Hinduism as a weird unorganised religion while they saw Islam as a fellow Abrahamic faith more organised and more easy to relate to as the British in those days were devout Christians. Pagan pre-Christian Britons may have related to Hindustan at least ancient Vedic Hindusim as it has a lot of similarities with Persian Zoroastrianism as well as all the pre-Christian religions of Europe including Anglo-Saxon religion.

    Islamic invasions ” like current Christian invasions or past Christian invasions or there Buddhist invasions-wars in Tibet-Monglia-China or internecine intra-Hindu invasions were all brutal and were based on the expansion of the empire or chances of the gathering of more loot .

    That is true to a large extent. Money was a major driving force in these expansions.

    “It were not British scholars but Islamic scholars who wrote about the mass slavery of native Indians by foreign Muslim invaders.” This has come under severe criticism for alert 30 years . Read JSTOR articles.

    Many poor Hindus suffered because of the Islamic invasions, lootings, pillaging and and brutal slavery that follows ”
    Poor Hindus did not suffer . Rich elite lost the privilege . Wealthy temples full of tax revenue and jewelry got robbed and temple for prostitution disappeared .

    “What Mr Naipaul said is common sense believed by majority of Hindus”- Mr Naipul got exposed after 911 by his warm ready embrace of the 911 anti muslim hysteria.

    Muslim did not practice slavery in India the way it was in Tibet or in New World or in pre Islamic India .It was an improvement where the slaves could rise to the top and be part of the civilized community as equal.

    Forcing population to live in certain area and moving them to certain area for tax purpose which we can label as slavery was practiced even by Buddhist Burmese elite in the 17 th century.
