The Forgotten European Slaves of Islam, with text and comments from JihadWatch.org

“Ohio State University history Professor Robert Davis describes the White Slave Trade as minimized by most modern historians in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500–1800 (Palgrave Macmillan).”

“White slavery” is a common term, but it is unfortunate, as the slaves described in this video were not captured and enslaved because they were white, but because they were non-Muslim. Their capture and enslavement was based on elements of Islamic law that are still part of that law in all its various permutations and manifestations.

    Muslim slavers raided England, too. As a kid of 6 I recall a beach festival called “Turk Town” in a small Cornish village where local fishermen blacked up & dressed in ‘Moorish’ costume with turbans and scimitars rowed ashore in mock battle. Terrified me!
    Historical records say that village was in fact called Turktown for a short time in the long-distant past.

      When you don’t teach history , history tends to repeat itself ! And now we have progeny of barbary pirates coming over into our countries to complete the job that their forefathers failed to do.

      As long as there are muslims in Israel , America …. the islamic jihadi menace will continue.

      Unless Every country treats these muslims the way these Iceland police are doing http://tinyurl.com/jqbvanr

        To PRCS, Dave, and Jeff, most of us long ago forgot that the U.S. Marine Corps came into being because of the Barbary Pirates. See the book “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The forgotten war that changed American History” (also available in audio format). As the story goes, when Adams and Jefferson called on the Ottoman representative in London to complain of enslaving American crews and pointing out the Barbary states had no right to do so, the Muslim bureaucrat responded that Oh Yes, they had every right to do so because it was so written in their Koran.

      ‘White Gold: The Extraordinary Story of Thomas Pellow and Islam’s One Million White Slaves’ written by Giles Milton.

      “In the summer of 1716, a Cornish cabin boy named Thomas Pellow and fifty-one of his comrades were captured at sea by Barbary corsairs. Their captors–Ali Hakem and his network of Islamic slave traders–had declared war on the whole of Christendom.”

      Only a select portion of the population had the wealth to acquire slaves: 40 for the sheik, 30 for each wife– very expensive.
      Most muslims were simply too poor to own even one.
      No redistribution from sheik to shepherd!
      The average muslim had no slaves to kill or mistreat in an extreme or ‘terroristic’ way.

        I do not recall that Davis explored the subject of individual Muslims owning slaves. He did not have to do that in order to shed light on this material that has been suppressed and ignored for so long. The magnitude of the practice is now recognized as far more extensive than thought by most historians just 20 years ago. The Barbary pirates are important, but just the tip of the iceberg when considering the overall extent of the Islamic culture towards black Africans.

        Shmooviyet, you appear to believe that slavery was a rarity in the Muslim world; it *was not*. Many slaves were not owned by individual Muslims, but by the local thug leader and the Islamic state.

        Even today in Mauritania, and estimated *17%* of the population there is enslaved.

    It had been revealed which is entitled JESUS AND THE JIHADIS by the tow Christian authors s ,Grag A. Evens and Jeremiah J Johnson about the founder and prophet of Islam, Muhammad , who all Muslims look to as the supreme example of the man to follow About this Muhammad this book exposes that “he endorsed sex-slavery as a gift from Allah, and enjoyed offering sex-slaves as gifts…” page 124. Furthermore, with the view of slavery in the light of history .on page 125 it exposes that “Islam has enslaved more people than any other culture.” On that same page it further inform the reader that “A little known fact is is that the highest priced slave in Mecca was always a White women. The Sunna is that Muhammad ‘s favorite sex-slave was a White women.”
    In spite of all the facts of reality the propagandists for Islam still have the gall to make the totally false claim the Islam respects human rights and also respects women.

    • Ron says

      November 26, 2016 at 3:29 pm

      This despicable pseudo-religion has captured the minds of millions largely because every Muslim society is immersed in it so thoroughly that its core beliefs have taken on the appearance of reality. Because critical thinking is not allowed, and the effort to leave it is punishable by death it has sealed the door of reason and by doing so guaranteed its own destruction over time.

    In reference to the Islamic slave trade of Americans and Europeans by the Barbary states, Jefferson asked Tripoli’s envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman, by what right he extorted money and took slaves in this way. He answered:
    The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.[119][120]
    Jefferson later went to war with the Barbary states”

    ‘filthy christians are masters of deceptions and lies.they want cover up their savage transatlantic slave trade and cruel treatment of african slaves and shift the blame to muslims”. As usual muslims such as yourself are always in denial about the facts. Islam is responsible for the deaths of 270 Million people over 1,400 years and it has never stopped. https://www.politicalislam.com/tears-of-jihad/#virtue_comments

    Talking of deception and lies what about the practice of Deception, Lying, Taqiyya and Kitmsn” you know the saying “Islam is a religion of peace”

    In fact the false prophet of islam was a disgusting individual, mass murdering warlord:

    This quote from the Religion of Peace website describes the false profit perfectly.

    Muhammad is a narcissist, a pedophile, a mass murderer,
    a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman
    a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter.”

    Former Muslim Ali Sina offered $50,000 to anyone
    who could prove this wrong based on Islamic texts.

    The reward has gone unclaimed.

    OR better still have read of “The People Vs Muhammad” by J K Sheindlin and there you will see that it is “the false prophet muhammad who is filthy muslim and a master of deception.

    Why can’t you accept the fact that there were 1million europeans captured by islamist for slavery. Why can’t you accept that it was muslims who enslaved black africans (roughly 11 million) made them travel from Africa via the Sahara, North Africa onto Arabia. Why can’t you accept the fact it was muslims who enslaved black Africans and sold them onto the Europeans and so started the Atlantic slave trade.

    Still in denial? Still arrogant? Still ignorant? Still burying you head in the sand: then follow this link: https://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2012/08/27/the-arab-slave-trade-and-200-million-non-muslim-slaves-of-all-skin-colors/

    “No, there is smoke coming out from under your car!”
    “You’re car is smoking too, you’re car is a wreck!”
    “I should check on your engine, you’re endangering yourself and others.”
    “Aha, there it is, Islamophobia! A Trump supporter! A Nazi!”
    “No, I mean maybe you’ve an oil leak and you’ll have a breakdown on the freeway and…”
    “You think that you know more about cars than I do? During our Golden Age we Muslims drove cars when you Europeans lived in caves, communicated by making barking sounds and ate frogs and grubs…”
    “No, I mean you should call a garage…”
    “Aha, you’re conspiring with a zionist crusader garage keeper to steal my car!”
    “No, I just want you to get off the road before an accident happen!”
    “Aha, you want me off the road because you hate Muslims. And if there is smoke coming out of my car it is because the Jews have sabotaged it.

    Ibrahim, your screed is full of nonsense.

    First of all, as a Christian, an American, and a history teacher, I can assure you we cover the Atlantic slave trade, and we do not minimize its horrors. The coverup is how the curriculum I am required to use makes abolition rooted in “enlightenment” and “radical” values rather than in the Christian theological concerns that actually motivated the anti-slavery movement’s founders.

    A very large difference between your religion and mine is that when mine discovers true, moral evil in its midst, and confronts and seeks reformation. To take an example, Spain’s American colonies began the large-scale import of African slaves because a tender-hearted but not very far-sighted priest by the name of Bartolome de Las Casas, shocked by the dying off of the Indians of the Caribbean and Central America due to lack of immunity to Old World diseases and maltreatment, urged the King of Spain to become the Indians’ protectors, and to import Africans for labor. After all, Las Casas argued, the Africans did not die of diseases and, were able to withstand heavy labor. Las Casas’ also pointed out to the Spanish King the example set by Spain’s own former colonial masters, the Muslims, who had introduced African slavery to the Peninsula. Las Casas, however, lived long enough to see the horrors brought on by the trans-Atlantic slave trade and protest loudly against them.

    There was also a major debate in Spain between the theologians Juan Gines Sepulveda, who argued that it was proper for Christians to conquer and enslave non-Christians, and Francisco Vitoria, who said that in exploring new lands for trade, Christians must continue to observe the laws of justice. Vitoria (also called Franciscus Victoria) is now looked on as one of the fathers of modern international law.

    A little before 1700, a Puritan colonial Massachusetts judge by the name of Samuel Sewall wrote a tract entitled _The Selliong of Joseph_, which is a blistering attack on the African slave trade, using arguments grounded in Christian theology and ethics. He had predecessors in the 17th century Netherlands as well.

    The movement against the slave trade and for emancipation in the English-speaking world was launched by devout Christians. Samuel Wilberforce, the British Parliamentarian who became the most prominent spokesman for the anti-slavery movement, was motivated by strongly Evangelical convictions. He and his associates persisted in pushing for the abolition of slavery in the British Empire until 1836, when they finally succeeded. Similar concerns motivated American anti-slavery movements, especially the prominent New York Evangelical businessman Lewis Tappan, who bankrolled anti-slavery societies.

    In contrast, when the post-Wilberforce British government sought to enlist the help of Mulay Ismail of Morocco in the suppression of the African slave trade, Mulay Ismail replied, “How can I lend my aid to the suppression of something clearly ordained by Allah?”

    Obama’s enslaved ancestry is minimal, and traced through his white American mother, who, it turns out, was a descendant of an enslaved African named John Punch (there was a fair amount of intermarrying between low class whites, slaves, and black freedmen in early America; and in many cases, the African ancestry got so diluted that the descendants “passed” into white society). If he is indeed the son of Barack Obama, Sr. of Kenya rather than of the African-American Communist Frank Marshall Davis (whom he resembles), then Obama, as the descendant of East African Muslims, descends from people who were hunting and trading African slaves long after the last American slave holders were ruined in the Civil War—and those same African slave hunters did not stop until faced with British bayonets and Maxim guns. Indeed, Sudan and Mauretania prove that when the West is weak, the lands of Islam will revert again to enslaving their subject peoples and neighbors.

    I cannot help but notice that Islam’s allies in the Western Left are the same people who would suppress the free exercise of a conscientious Christianity and the free speech that allowed our civilization to overcome the evil of slavery. it is also they (people like Frank Marshall Davis) who turn blind eyes to the great historical evil of Communism’s enslavement and massacres of multitudes. Like Islam, they are a largely destructive rather than creative force.

    In conclusion, our openness to the Holy Spirit of God (the Comforter whom Jesus promised in John 12-16, who is clearly not a Hijazi warlord named Muhammad ibn Abdullah), and resultant willingness to confront and reform evils in our society is why the lands under Christian influence became the First World, and those of Islam will remain the Third (or Fourth) World.

    filthy christians are masters of deceptions and lies.they want cover up their savage transatlantic slave trade and cruel treatment of african slaves and shift the blame to muslims.history has accurately recorded how white european christians shipped black slaves from africa to americas accross atlantic ocean in an inhuman manner just like animals.those who were found old and sick not fit for hard labour were thrown into deep sea water and eatened by sharks.mrs mischel obama, a descendant of africa slaves,will educate you more on this scenario when she visited slave concentration camp museum in ghana.such inhuman treatment of slave is explicitly enshrined in the mithraist evil bible(the book of genocide and phornography).the quran never enjoine muslims to have slaves for hard labour.it is only in some exceptional circumstance under very strigent conditions prescibed by sharia that is permitted.first you must not maltreat him or impose hard labour on him.if you breach any of the conditions,the slave has the right to sue the master before a court complaining breach of any of the conditions.if the slave prove his case the court will free the slave.again,islam encourages muslims to voluntarily free their slaves as an act of devotion to atract rewards from allah.prophet muhammad was the first person who set his slave zaid bn thabit free and brought him closer to him just like his natural son.if slave is a woman, sharia law says the moment she gives birth to a child she is automatically free.thus, those slaves disappeared in most muslim societies.see ali mazrui on african slavery.but there are traditionalist muslims who acquired slaves contrary to sharia provisions.some muslim scholars are working hard to get them free these illegal slaves.these are the types of slaves christian deceivers are calling islamic slaves in places like mauritania.they are not islamic because they were acquired illegally contrary to sharia provisions.note sharia provides that slaves can only be acquired as war prisoners not by way of suprise raiding of unarmed civilians.see hamidullah islam law of war and peace.so,the slaves this professor was talking were unislamic, because were captured through raid as non-combatant civilians.

      Hey, muslim imbecile, are serious about that nonsense???
      You all in fact are slaves of the non-muslim World.
      If Islam never existed – it should have been invented.
      Ottoman Khliphate lost WW1 – lost because it was backward, was backward because it was muslim.
      As a result – formed many separate muslim countries with poor backward economics – because they are muslim.
      All these muslim countries are nothing but puppets of the non-muslim World.
      Population of dar-al-islam is in fact working hard to make reacher the non-muslims.
      Our leftists feel pity for muslims and let them study in our Universities, to stop their backwardness.
      But muslims show that they prefer to be backward slaves. So, let them be!
      And you will remain slaves as long as you be muslims.
      Look at Egypt, where Mubarak, the agent of USA, froze the nuclear program. Now Russia is gonna build Nuclear Power Plant in Dabaa for astronomical sum – 20 billion US dollars – and without sharing the technology. They sell them obsolete weapons and they bow down to to them.
      Look at Turkey. Without NATO, Russia would happily eat Erdogan on breakfast and take back Constantinople. When Erdogan downed Russian plane – Putin banned visiting Russian tourists and Erdogan said: I am sorry, please bring the tourists back. And, please, do not freeze building Nuclear Power Plant in Akkuyu. Because we are stupid asswipers and have no brain to build it ourselves.
      Look at Iran. It is under the ridiculous Deal. And will never get a Nuke.
      The list of shame is too long.
      Islam is incompatible with technologies. And therefore – muslims are doomed to be slaves – directly or indirectly.
      And you know why? Because there is a true prophecy which you will never understand: Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him (to Jesus) a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

    In the early Middle Ages, European Christians raided European pagans, mostly Slavs, and took them as slaves.

    Western European Christian Frankish rulers would sell these European pagan Slavs to Jewish merchants, who took them across the Mediterranean, castrated the males, and sold them to Arab Muslims so they could become eunuchs and concubines.

    European Christians would also send these European pagan Slavic Slavs as gifts to the Abbasid Caliph directly. It was considered legal in Christianity to sell non-Christians as slaves to other non-Christians so pagan Europeans were sold by Christian Europeans as slaves.

    Jews were the middlemen between Europe and the Middle East and trafficked the pagan European eunuchs and concubines to their destination.

    Vikings engaged in the slave trade. Vikings would raid both pagan Slavs from Eastern Europe and Christian western Europeans from western Europe, and sold them as eunuchs and concubines into Arab Muslim harems.

    Muslims did not castrate the slaves. Jews and Coptic Christians castrated the slaves first and then sold them to Muslims. Western European Christians sold pagan eastern European Slavic captives to the Jews in Al Andalus, who castrated and then sold them to Arab Muslims.

    Europeans can’t ask for reparations since they sold each other into slavery.

    Barbary Pirates were Europeans and Jews. The Jew Sinan Reis was a Barbary pirate. The Dutch people Ivan Dirkie De Veenboer and Jan Janszoon became Barbary pirates and they were Christians before they joined.. Jan Janszoon and his fellow European Barbary pirates were responsible for the massive Barbary slave raids against Ireland and Iceland and he bought the Irish and Icelandic prisoners to North Africa to sell in the slave markets.

    Europeans sold each other into slavery to Arab Muslims. Why are Arab Muslims supposed to apologize for Europeans selling each other?

      I am from Turkey.

      Ottomans used black slaves and castrated them because they used them in their palaces and homes and did not want them to be tempted by their wives and slave girls. When they get old and useless they have been killed or kicked out. It was easier for Ottomans to get “fresh meat” from Africa than to feed and shelter old black slaves that people never talk about.

      Castration and killing of black slaves in Ottoman times are the reasons for hardly seeing a “native” black person in Turkey nowadays. But ofcourse we can talk all day long about how racist USA is today, which is a blatant lie.

        Coptic Christians castrated African slaves for the Ottomans. Coptic monks performed the castrations in monasteries in Egypt before sending them up to Constantinople. Muslims didn’t perform the castrations.

        • Vann Boseman says

          November 26, 2016 at 3:40 am

          The Muslim slave trade in Africa lasted well over a thousand years. The Muslim market for slaves was not limited to the Ottomans during all that time. There is plenty of evidence that most of the time slaves were castrated long before ever making it to Egypt. It could be that you are right that Coptic Christians and Ethiopian Christians were at some point complicit, and that is horrible too if true, but the scale of the trade over time suggests that this had to be a small or tiny fraction of the castrations done.

          What is the nature of someone who would seek to indemnify Christians in this way when the Muslim customers clearly valued castrated slaves regardless of who would done the castrating.

          I think that you are trying to avoid the HUGE involvement of Islam as the primary creator of race-based slavery in the world, with an especially core Arabian influence. I do not believe that race is as strongly based in the teachings or life of Mohammed, but that the Islamic culture, especially the Arabians, is to be held responsible. For Muslims,is it more important to cover up the Arabian Islamic culture’s race based slavery through history, or to be a Muslim? If you try to do both, then I will see you as a hypocrite and wonder why Islam does not brand you an apostate.

    • reyol says

      November 25, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      If the Islamic market is clamoring for castrated slaves, how are the Mohammedans innocent? Having non-Mohammedan middlemen do it for you doesn’t absolve you. That’s just a way to make ‘halal’ what was previously ‘haram’. It’s just a loophole like many in Sharia. You’re still guilty in the eyes of the Living God and any reasonable non-Mohammedan observer.

      yes, the Greek, the Roman, slave owners. the vikings, slave traders. but the west progressed technically and morally. Islam has to follow suit but is dragging its heels, writing Cairo declarations… reversing secularism in Turkey. yet enjoying western progress for all what it is worth declaring that it is not western progress but appropriated from Islam’s Golden Age.

      It is better to look at the Japanese and Chinese and Koreans. They have appropriated western civilization and made it their own and they don’t cry. They study and work. Islam is being overtaken not only by Christianity, but now by the Buddhists and the Shinto and the Hindus.

      Here we had a Muslim Bortherhood affiliated minister of education for ten years. The result? Islamization of the education system, hijab school uniforms, mosques at the school… Comes in a new more secular minister who says, why are we so far behind in communication and information studies? Well, the information and communication minister was from the same party, his legacy, a program blocking porn. I also don’t like the porn tsunami on the internet, but Taiwan makes more computers than the whole of the Islamic world.

      So it is better to stop the obsession with white and west, put your own house in order. I don’t feel sympathy for Muslims coming to the west to complain about it. They should work hard to bring their own countries on par. Don’t mention the Golden Age, make the Sahara fertile again like the Israelis have done with the Negev.

      Mazo, you are talking nonsenses about the Slavs aka Slavic/Slavonic people, they have nothing to do with ‘slaves’. The etymology of Slavic people’s name derives from the term “those who speak (slovo) meaningfully”, “people without the scripture who have only spoken words (their slovo) and spoken literature”, and these were today’s Croats, Serbs, Slovenians, Macedonians, Czechs, Slovaks, Ukrainians, Belorussians, Latvians, Estonians, Russians, Bulgarians and Polish.

      Speaking about the slavery – 3 million Hungarians were sold into Muslim slavery during 200 years of Ottomans in Balkans.

          As a matter of fact, during all those centuries of Ottomans in EU – Roman Catholic Slavs fought for EU against the Turks :: for centuries Croats bled and kept the Ottomans away from crossing over to Vienna, and Polish king Sobieski kicked them out from Vienna for good on the 9/11-12 battle in 1683.

          After that, Turks remained on the outskirts of EU for another couple of centuries (till 1918) — thanks to corrupt Slav locals in Orthodox Christain Serbia, Macedonia and Bulgaria.

          Today, the history is repeating

        Where did I say the word Slav was derived from slave? I wrote that other Europeans took Slavs as slaves and that is a fact.

        Pagan Slavs were allowed to be sold under Christian law as slaves and were sent as gifts by Christian western European Franks to Arab Muslims.

    islam is still practicing sex slavery via ISIS. There was a muslim slave trade in east africa 1,000 years before the trans atlantic slave trade. Sharia still allows for slavery.

    Slavery is an enemy to all mankind. All slave histories need to be told. So that mankind can at last leave this barbarity behind. In the best world, slavery will only be in history books.

    As I was watching the video it occurred to me that Islamic culture is a “culture of taking, not making”. You see that today in the underdevelopment of muslim countries and the hand out attitude of muslim migrants. They are shy of good honest work. Take away the opportunity to steal and extort, and they subsist rather than rising to create industry and innovation. In fact even Islamic commerce is large trading items from somewhere else, not making.

    “Then Jibreel,the greatest prophet ever,who is bigger than Jesus
    said
    YALLAH commands you to take slaves and kill the unbelievers.
    Set fire to the old Jew’s beard and throw the Christian down the well.
    Burn the temple of the Buddhists and punch the Hare Krishna in the face
    for YALLAH hates infidels,but especially Jews and Christians”

    You see what I did there?
    I made it all up:I PRETENDED to be the voice of God.
    I even used capital letters so you would think YALLAH is God.
    But clearly this fictitious voice is so obviously human isn’t it?
    That’s what you need to remember when you discern the voice of”allah”
    in the koran.

    They also raided most of East and central Africa where they captured blacks for slavery. Lots of these people died crossing the Sahara desert and of mistreatments. The men were castrated, the woman sold as sex slave and if they had babies they were killed. this African slavery lasted 1400 years and is still going on in Mauritania. The transatlantic slavery only lasted 300 years. When you go to Muslim countries you do not see many or no blacks. Why? They were not allowed to reproduce. In the USA today you see many black descendants of African slaves. Black in Arabic is abeed ]hope the spelling is correct] which means slave. These bastards were taking slave all over Europe. Cervantes who wrote Don Quichote de la Mancha was taken and delivered because someone paid the ransom.

    I strongly recommend White Gold by Giles Milton.
    It recounts the appalling story of up to one million
    Christian slaves in Morocco alone over a period
    of about 60 years.
    In the UK most younger people have been taught lies re slavery.
    The truth is
    1. Africans kidnap other Africans as slaves, selling on those
    not needed to arab muslims.
    2 Arabs castrate males they intend to keep, + some women for
    harems .Any mixed race babies from the harems, drowned/strangled
    at birth
    3. Surplus slaves sold to Westerners.
    The UK was first to ban slavery & Royal Navy used to free slaves from
    arab,Spanish, French etc slavers
    Any black westerner looking for reparations should contact the
    muslim or african states where slavery is still practiced

    Hundreds of thousands of Muslims were enslaved by European Christians in the same period: see “Migrants in Chains: On the Enslavement of Muslims in Renaissance and Enlightenment Europe” by Ariel Salzmann (2013) available as free PDF online

      I doubt that the numbers were really that high. Both Muslims and Christians used slaves of the other religion as oarsmen. This was primarily the use that European Christians had for Muslim Slaves. Muslims had multiple uses for European Christians. As time went on, and sailing became more the naval technology of choice for Europeans, the use for Muslim slaves as oarsmen waned.

    of course one of the big ‘wakeup calls’ of the Declaration of Independence was that the British no longer took responsibility for guarding the colonies against pirate attacks.

    Medieval Moslems married the white blonde blue-eyed woman in order to give them a legal marital pleasure along with wealth of dowry, but the Medieval Christians just enslaved the black women on purpose to force them as the cheap labor workers of the lowly jobs which nobody wants to do, even to demean those women as the prostitutes and lower caste as subhuman property.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Yes there’s distinct feature of the Medieval slavery. The Medieval Arabs usually elevate the poor white woman to be the wives or mistress of Arab household, but the Medieval Christians just enslave and make the poor black people more poorer for the labor jobs.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Rather than Pope and kings of England, the Arabs were more preferred and acceptable by the early American founding fathers if they ought pay the tributary and taxes to the non-America.
    The Arabs were once the masters of the Americans, and in turn the Americans enslaved the blacks and native Americans.

  4. θ says:

    The Medieval Arabs were regarded more as the liberator of white women rather than womanisers. There many reasons for that, such as a strict Biblical monogamy, a falsehood of Christian celibacy, the lower birth rate and higher mortality (since the Medieval Europeans relied on the primitive Catholic superstition to heal sickness) and the lack of Western men (who were killed during Crusades), along with civil wars among European warlords and sects. Hence, so many white blonde blue-eyed women were utterly wasted.

    Now, the mental sickness of the men’s Homosexualism adds another reason why the white women are wasted much more.

    The Arabs preferred white women for legitimate wives, whereas the Medieval Christians preferred the black slaves and native Americas, but they were not elevated as wives, rather they were enslaved for the forced labors.
    The Arab men give pleasures to white women, and most Christian apologists can’t hide their envy for that, whereas the Christians give more sufferings to the blacks and Americas.
