Slavery In Tripoli, Genocide & The Barbary Wars

As the Ottoman Empire declined, the killing and slavery didn’t. In 1818, Captain Lyon of the British Navy traveled to Tripoli where he noted that Mohammad al-Mukani waged war against his defenseless neighbors and took roughly 5,000 slaves annually and many animals including camels which the Sultan of Tripoli desired greatly.

Even more desired was his desire for beautiful women. He had a haram of 50 beautiful black women guarded by eunuchs that he beat regularly to keep them in line.

Captain Lyon noted one day as 1,500 slaves were marched long distances into town that it was a piteous spectacle of black women and children emaciated via heavy loads of firewood with their captors riding camels using whips to push them on and the slave traders spoke likes farmers do of cattle in reference to them.

In 1842, the British concul General in Morocco asked Sultan Abd al-Rahman what he was doing to stop the slave trade.  He responded: “ the traffic in slaves is a matter of which all sects and nations have agreed from the time of the sons of Adam…up to this day”.

Muslim slave traders sent nearly 10 million souls from sub-Saharan Africa to the slave markets of the Islamic world.

To this day, in Africa, it continues, including human trafficking in sex trade.

In 1894, the Armenians in Asia Minor rebelled at having to pay the jizya to both the Kurdish warlords in Anatolia and to the Ottoman state.

The Sultan immediately began massacring them ruthlessly committing mass rapes, killing children and burning villages.

When asked by the Brits why these atrocities occurred, it was stated it was in accordance with sharia law – exactly what they do today.

In 1894, the Ottomans began a 24 day massacre of the Armenians as a result and burned many alive in their homes.

In the city of Geliguzan, many young men were bound, laid in a row on the ground where brush and wood was placed on top of them and burned alive.

The elimination of Armenians occurred everywhere including Constantinople where Muslims made the streets run red with blood for two days.

Christians and Armenians were often killed together in their churches where their throats were cut.

The Germans, Russians, British and French were appalled at the barbaric slaughter of the Armenians.

Islam is NOT peaceful, it is brutal using sharia and the words of Mohammad as their excuse to this day for atrocities they so greatly desire.

Meanwhile, the Barbary states of Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli continued their slave trade and jihad piracy.

After America’s independence, in 1784, they began targeting our ships and demanded ransom for their return.

Unfortunately, after the US ship Betsey was taken, America paid the ransom. This encouraged more of the same.

By 1795, 16% of the US federal revenue went to the Muslim pirates- unsustainable.

In 1786 Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met in London with Sidi Haji Amdrahaman to discuss the war the Muslims had declared on the US and its ships.

The answer was astonishing.

“The ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in the Koran, that all nations who should have not 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 paradise.”

So it has been since Mohammad even until today.

Absolutely nothing has changed, just their means and tactics.

Jefferson, to his credit, opted for war rather than continue paying tribute.

He formed a navy and marine corps and in the wars of 1805 and 1815 defeated the Muslim pirates of Tripoli.

To this day, it is embedded in the Marine anthem.  However, today we have forgotten history and invite the enemy to our shores with the same goal of sharia law and world domination and destruction of our Constitution and our nation.

God helps us if our politicians remain so ignorant of history.

Our jails are full of Muslims converting inmates.

Our schools are full teachers teaching redacted history of Islam by Muslim committees, thus our students are believing a lie that Islam is peaceful.

Where are the objections?

They are buried in intentional ignorance.

From the time Mohammad near his death said he was made victorious with terror, Islam has emulated his words, killed hundreds of millions, raped, pillaged, took booty and sought that all bow to their imams and caliphates and be subject to them as second class citizens.

Islam is anathema to America and seeks our destruction.

911 was a wake up call to America, but we have forgotten once again.
