GOOD Post. I think we have to shame everyone who still, hard as it is to believe, supports slavery.

Only pressure by the Western governments caused the banning of slavery, in law at least, after the end of WW1.

Since Mohammed himself had slaves and concubines, both are ingrained in Islamic tradition.

More than twice as many Africans were made slaves by Muslims than were transported across the Atlantic, and only 5% to the US.

A must-read is the Scourge of Slavery, teh rest of the story at http://www.christianaction.org.za/articles_ca/2004-4-TheScourgeofSlavery.htm
