Here's some light weekend reading for all you infidels, kafirs, monkeys and pigs out there: a treatise of Islam and slavery.
Here's some choice bits:
Islam institutionalized slavery. Muhammad began to take slaves after he moved to Medina, and had power. Slaves were usually taken in raids on nearby Arab tribes, or war, either through offensive or defensive actions. Islam allows the taking of slaves as "booty", or reward for fighting. This has led to numerous "jihads" by Muslim states and tribes to attack other non-Muslim groups and obtain slaves. Islamic jurisprudence laid down regulations for the proper treatment of slaves. However, abuses have occurred throughout history.
Read the rest here...it's well worth your time.
Have a great infidel weekend.
