Every African receiving this document and other similar documents from me is free and expected to also help by sending such documents to everyone they can reach via e-mails, through blogs, other internet groups, sites and to send the documents to newspapers and other media sources to publish as a means of informing every African and Black person alive, and mobilizing them into one family.
Arabs’ attitude to Blacks derives from slavery and from Genesis’ racist fiction of Noah’s sons: Ham, Japheth and Shem. Arabs claim that “the accursed Ham was the progenitor of the black race; that Japheth begat the full-faced, small eyes Europeans and that Shem fathered the handsome of face with beautiful hair Arabs.” The truth, of course, is that Arabs are the products of Black and White liaison. Arabs conveniently forget that they came about from the mixture between their most advanced race at the time, the Kushites (Blacks), and the barbaric, low-class, Jectanide (White) tribe that invaded Arabia land of the Blacks, first in 1760 BCE and massively from 1550 BCE.
Muslim Arab and Persian literature depicts Blacks as "stupid, untruthful, vicious, sexually unbridled, ugly and distorted, excessively merry, and easily affected by music and drink.” Nasir al-Din Tusi, a famous Muslim scholar said of Blacks: "The ape is more capable of being trained than the Negro.” Ibn Khaldun, an early Muslim thinker, writes that Blacks are "the only humans who are closer to dumb animals than to rational beings." Ibn Sina, Avicenna 980–1037, Arab’s most famous and influential philosopher/scientist in Islam, described blacks as “people who are by their very nature slaves.” He wrote: “All African women are prostitutes, and the whole race of African men, are abed (slave) stock.” He equated black people with “rats plaguing the earth.”
Ibn Khaldun, an Arab historian stated that “Blacks are characterized by levity and excitability and great emotionalism,” adding that “they are everywhere described as stupid.” al-Dimashqi, an Arab pseudo scientist, wrote: “the Equator is inhabited by communities of blacks who may be numbered among the savage beasts. Their complexion and hair are burnt and they are physically and morally abnormal. Their brains almost boil from the sun’s heat…..” Ibn al-Faqih al-Hamadhani painted this no less horrid picture of black people, “…..the zanj (the blacks) are overdone until they are burnt, so that the child comes out between black, murky, malodorous, stinking, and crinkly-haired, with uneven limbs, deficient minds, and depraved passions…..”
The Arabs were the first to enslave Africans, starting from 650 CE. Ten times more millions of African slaves were involved in the Islamic experience than in the Trans-Atlantic slavery of Africans by the West. Between 650 CE and 1905 CE, over twenty million African slaves had been delivered through the Trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world and a hundred million through the East African route. Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa, ‘estimates that over 80 million more died en-route Trans-Sahara’ and trice as many through the Eastern route.
A text from Dr. Azumah’s book provides this quote from a Zanzibar observer, about the travails of African slaves, en-route to slave markets, around the Arabic world. “As they filed past, we noticed many chained together by the neck... The women, who were as numerous as the men, carried babies on their backs in addition to a tusk of ivory or other burden on their heads... It is difficult to adequately describe the filthy state of their bodies; in many instances not only scarred by [the whip], but feet and shoulders were a mass of open sores... half-starved ill-treated creatures who, weary and friendless, must have longed for death.”
A Muslim herdsman, in Dr. Azumah’s book described the fate of those who became too ill or too weak to continue the journey as follows: “We speared them at once! For, if we did not, others would pretend they are ill in order to avoid carrying their loads. No! We never leave them alive on the road; they all know this custom.” When asked who carries the ivory when a mother gets too tired to carry both her baby and the ivory, the herdsman replied, "She does! We cannot leave valuable ivory on the road. We spear the child and make her burden lighter.”
Arab enslavement of Black Africans continues to this day in the Muslim world, particularly in the Sudan, Niger, and Mauritania. Arabs act as if Islamic slavery is a favour done to the millions of unfortunate African men, women and children, still being enslaved now by them and those forcibly uprooted from their native lands earlier on, and condemned to lives of sexual and mental abuse and servitude, deep in the Islamic world.
Arabs do not consider Black Muslims authentic or of consequence. At best, they concede to Blacks, the role of ordained slaves or senseless animals, to be used as beasts of burden by the “superior Arab race.” The rule applies to all Blacks, whether Muslims or non-Muslims, and whether of Nigerian (Hausa/Fulani or Yoruba extractions), or Tanzanians, Ugandans, Malians, or African-Americans. A traveller in Sudan observed in 1930 that “In the eyes of the Arab rulers of Sudan, the Black slaves were simply animals given by Allah to make life of Arabs comfortable.” In 1962, the Arab Sudanese General, Hassan Beshir Nasr, while flagging off his troops to the war front against Black Africans in South Sudan, declared: “We don’t want these Black slaves…….what we want is their land.”
A coalition of 50 charities in Darfur, Sudan, published a study in mid December, 2008, confirming what the world already knew that the Janjaweed and the Sudanese army, with the backing of their government, during joint or individual attacks, raped, tortured, and killed Sudanese Africans, and razed their villages to repopulate them with Arab nomads. They rounded up and abducted escapees from hide-outs in the bush, and at other times raided refugee camps to kidnap Africans as sex and labour slaves, working them to the bones as domestic and farm labour. The army flew their captives in planes to Khartoum at night, and shared them among soldiers, like you allocate bags of commodities, and are using them as sex and domestic servants right now.
Kidnapped victims interviewed, said their captors told them that ‘they were not human beings, and that they were there to serve them.’ In the five years between 2003 and 2008, over 300,000 Sudanese Africans were killed, 100,000 abducted, and 2.7 million rendered homeless refugees, with their land appropriated by Arabs. The Khartoum government admitted 14,000 kidnaps. You can imagine what happened when the world turned a blind eye to Sudan, in the twenty years between 1983 when the conflict began and 2003. You have to ask yourself what African leaders are doing in AU with the Arabs. Arabs are Africans’ mortal foes.
