Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Black Lives Still Don't Matter to These Muslim Masters

Nor, it seems, to the BLM™ movement.

Writes the Italian journalist Giulio Meotti in a brand new article here, entitled 'Slavery Rampant in Africa, Middle East; The West Wrongly Accuses Itself ': 
'For the intersectional activists, the US is the world's biggest oppressor -- not China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, or Iran.   It is high time for the United States to stop funding the United Nations.... The United Nations is now being used to perpetuate injustice, not stop it. Real slave traders and racists -- those who believe Western societies and values should not exist at all -- most likely look at the current Western self-flagellation and cheer their approval.'  
The Arab Slave Trade has a long history, but it is the Atlantic slave trade with which most people are familiar.

Adding to that familiarity is this video, about a Muslim Gambian who found himself enslaved in the United States.  It is, of course, an interesting historical tale:


And it is, needless to point out, on the trans-Atlantic trade that the self-flagellating Left and other enemies of the West dwell.

To try to redress the balance, this video might be a good place to start:

I might note here that in Mali, black slavery continues to flourish to some extent, and has not been declared illegal, but more notably it also still does so in Mauritania, despite its official abolition there. 

This video, made a few years ago, testifies to the misery to which all too many black people in Mauritania are still subject.


Scandalous.  And so very sad.

  1. Jaw-dropping: the convivial reunion of black freed Mauritania slave and his former Arab master - taking place in what, 2012?

    But these videos suggest the special problem of U.S. slavery. The U.S. hallmark is freedom and opportunity, hence the populous consists almost entirely of people who strove to get here precisely for these things. Except for the more than 1 in 10 whose story is the opposite: they were dragged here; then their lives got worse, not better, and their freedoms withdrawn, not granted. "Working hard to get ahead" didn't apply.

    Fast-forward to today: two sets of people living side-by-side with a different mental/psychological inheritance. Unsurprising perhaps the appeal of socialism/Marxism to Black Lives Matter. It would be a complete overturn of the U.S. credo.

    1. Except of course millions of Russians and Russian Jews came here fleeing serfdom, effectively slavery and made a life some kind of productive life here w/o squatting in the mud screaming for a 150 years. You bring whatever psyche you have along with you. Some cultures advance while others are hardwired to flounder
