Slavery is OK As Long As It Is a Muslim Master

This is a must read. At Life Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness gives us the heads up on the scummy underside of the appeaser media. The New York times prints what must be considered the all time low of apologetic appeaser tripe.

Arabs and most Western academics agree that the Arab form of African slavery, existing since at least the 6th century Arab conquest, generally has been less brutal and more open to advancement by slaves than the Western version.

African slaves in Arab households largely have labored as servants in households rather than farmhands on plantations, making for easier lives and less submerging of identity. They often ate and slept side by side with their masters, sometimes married into their families -- and occasionally even came to rule a Muslim kingdom.
