The Arab slave trade and its history

You hear daily in the Arab world how evil the Jews, Europeans and Americans etc. are. Especially regarding colonialism. Below you will find a link with a 5 min during 'presentation' how the Arab slave trade predates the Europeans one, with one difference, it started in 600 until now. No, and it is not propaganda from right wing groups but from a radical left Muslim group in the USA called Black Educator. And I can tell you that this put everything in a different perspective. They didn't take into account 700 years of plundering the Far East where estimated 20 million people have been killed by Arab imperialists to spread their religion. Neither the numerous attacks on Europe by the Moors in Spain, Arabs in Sicily and Ottomans into the Balkans up north.  

Here's a brief summation of the history of Arab enslavement of African Peoples. It is important to know this history in order to understand both the evolution of Western capitalism's slave trade and the current atrocities against Africans (by Africans) unfolding in the name of Islam and/or "Arab Civilization."
And here is the link.

This was extremely interesting information. History, as taught in schools, leaves much to be desired. So little of true import is actually taught, and young people are left floundering with incorrect notions and too few facts.

@Cher: you are so right. But I am trully disturbed by all the cheap propaganda made in the middle east regarding the apes and pigs: read 'Jews and Christians' who are all whiped out of the birthplace of christianity, Judaism and Islam: the Middle East.
@Marie. no, why should I be homesick?.)
