Islamic Slavery in Africa

The story of slavery that we are told never includes the role of Islam. The slaves were captured by jihadists and brought to the coast. We have a detailed record of how this took place. Prosperous regions of Africa were destroyed by the Arab slave traders. Out of the slaves that were captured, only 20% of them ever made to the pens on the coast to be sold.
There is an oddity in the language used in historical record — Arab, not Muslim. Their religion, not Islam. Raid, not jihad.
We will never understand the slave trade until we understand the Islamic slavery.

История рабства, которую нам рассказывают, никогда не включала в себя роль Ислама. Рабы были захвачены джихадистами и доставлены к побережью. Есть подробное сообщение о том, как это происходило.

Благополучные регионы Африки были уничтожены арабскими работорговцами. Из  числа рабов, которые были захвачены в плен, только 20% когда-либо были авторами продававшихся на побережье книг.

В языке исторических записей есть некая странность — арабский, вместо мусульманский; их религия, вместо Ислам;  набег вместо джихад.

Мы никогда не поймем рабства до тех пор, пока мы не поймем исламского рабства в Африке.

    Thank you Bill for posting this outstanding historical overview! Sadly there is continuous evidence here in America, that the role of Islam in the 1800’s relative to the slave trade, (who both captured and transported Africans), is nearly 100% omitted. So again, thank you for highlighting this important historical fact.

    Way too simplistic of an analysis.

    You even said it at the end. Arab Slave Traders would often enslave other Muslims. So we have Jihad on fellow Muslims?

    Your analysis is illuminating but you have an annoying tendency to reduce everything to simplistic definitions and ignore inconvenient subtleties. The world doesn’t operate like physics equations, despite your Phd in physics.
