If anyone thinks fear of Islam is a phobia needs to remember 9/11 and look at what is happening in Pakistan.

People hate Islam for what it stands for and doesn't stand for. Not wanting Islam in America is understandable, especially when Islam is incompatible with western culture including freedom of speech and religious liberty. It's understandable that Americans do not want the same evil that is permitted in Muslim countries to come to our shores and flourish in the United States.

The problem with African-American Muslims is that they are willfully ignorant of Islam's pervasive racism and history of Islamic slavery, which was even more cruel than the transatlantic slave trade. To this day, Muslims continue to enslave people, particularly in African countries, as a right given to them by the Quran. While blacks sometimes converted to Islam in order to rebel against what they view as white America, which Christianity was/is a part of, they know nothing about the horrors of Islamic history. Africans are leaving Islam in droves because they see it for what it really is, which is false doctrine that promotes intolerance, racism and slavery.

Nothing that has every happened in the history of Islam can compare with the various religious wars that decimated the populations of Europe. Now I see way secularism was a forgone conclusion for that benighted continent.

Dont be silly. Who is Islam racist against? Arabs, blacks, whites, Turks, PAkistanis, Berbers, Chinese?
Stop trying to scare black people with slavery. Didnt African sell slaves to Arabs and to Europeans? Didnt black Africans go into the bush and look for Africans to sell for buttons and old guns to European traders? Dont be so patronizing to Black African people. They got rid of their excess population due to slavery. A population that had already enslaved due to their own ethnic wars and rivalries. Maybe you think black Africans were walking around butt naked and braiding each others hair before the Arabs showed up but you couldnt be more wrong.

Slavery has existed in every human society. Islam is about 1400 years old. Slavery and racism existed before Islam and it existed after it. Are not Christians racist? Perhaps as a white man, you have never experiences racism but everyone is pretty much racist. In fact black Americans I would say are of the least racist people.

Every world religion has the same policy on slavery. The shoulder shrug to such an institution. Even the New Testaments talks about the evil of rebelling against your slave master. Serve him, as you would serve the Lord your father.

Africans dont need to leave Islam. I think they need to leave the resource wars going on on that continent that has claimed the lives of millions upon millions.

Question, that engagement ring you put on your wife's finger, how many black African girls were disembowled for it? Of course, blame Islam.

You obviously know squat about the Quran, ahadith, Islamic history, and the Islamic slave trade. Your views are from your ignorant perspective. What you think blacks should do is irrelevant to the issue of how Muslims have treated Africans since Islam's inception. Why don't you at the very least research the Islamic slave trade first before pretending to be an expert. lol! Then go on to read what Mohammad said about blacks.

....Africans dont need to leave Islam.....
Really? Then what do you call the Battle of Sali in 1035 AD when the co-ward ara-bs sent their pea-sant ber-bers to do their dirty job for them: to convert the Serere people [the so called infidels who vouched never to sucumb to islam]? The ber-ber pea-sants and their African converts entered the battle field against my Serere ancestors trying to convert them. Thank the Gods my ancestors butchered them forcing them to seek refuge in Mauritania. What about the Marabou Wars of the 19th century especially in the 1860s when the African muslim converts tried to force islam against us? We did not and do not have the e-vil tri-balism that you speak of in my country. All tribes saw each other as brothers and sisters. However when they tried to do that, we but-chered and sent them back to their e-vil god [all-ah] to get their 7 virgins. We bow to no foreign god and certainly no arab g-od. Never have and never will. Muslims as the true co-wards they are, surprised defenseless Serere villages and tried to force convert the Serere villagers. The Serere villagers of Naodorou, Ngaye and Kaymor as the proud and honourable people they are, committed matyrdom and vouched never to sucumb to islam -; that e-vil c-ult of
moh-ammad. Do you know that islam was the biggest di-vider among Africans in my country in the 18th and 19th century? People talk about African kings. But in my country, this e-vil c-ult from
a-rab-ia was the enemy within us. Mus-lim leaders engaged in
di-rty dealings with the European colonisers then pretend as if butter wouldn't melt. Instead of working with the Animist Kings to get rid of the colonisers, they wanted power of their own and would engage in all fi-l-ty de-alings with the European colonisers. The Europeans used that to their advantage and what followed next is text book history. The de-s-pic-ab-len-ess of
i-s-lam especially from the 19th century still resonates today.
I-s-lam is an e-vi-l c-u-lt that must be des-tr-oyed. I am proud of my Serere forefathers for ensuring this e-v-il c-u-lt never took its hold on the Serere people and dominated the ancient Serere kingdom of Sine. If they had been weak, Sine would now be dominated by e-vi-l i-sl-am. I-sl-am is a c-ul-t that divides. It is a wi-c-k-ed c-ul-t that must be de-st-ro-yed. To destroy it, one must destroy the source. De-st-roy the a-ra-b ra-c-e and the ka-bba of me-cca. De-st-roy me-dina and all those e-v-il places then the pil-lars of i-sl-am will fall one by one. Isn't it sickening that the only nobles left in Africa are the Animist Tribes. The rest have emb-ra-ced for-eign go-ds as if their lives depend on it. How we-ak! How pa-the-tic!

History repeats, plus it has already been told that the Stone of Kaaba will be broken and islam will be shattered. This will simply happen. No Allah, No Hashem...not even Shaitan can protect you. If you can read arabic, this may prove interesting. I will leave it at that.

Islamophobia is a stupid word. In fact there is no such thing as islamophobia. The word is engineered to construct an artificial sense of guilt for criticizing islam. Fear or suspicion is natural here, not phobic!

Islam is racist against all who don't believe in the pedo Mohamed. The whole of North Africa were Christians before these hateful religion arrived killing millions who refused to change their religion. There is still silent slavery in southern Sudan and in some rural west African countries where Arab traders buy slaves for domestic markets in Saudi Arabia and Gulf States. All black people in Arabic and Islam are called ABID which means slaves. I find it very naive if African Americans see this religion as liberating theology, it is nothing but. This hateful religion has nothing emancipatory in it but subjugation, enslavement and an endless lust for killing those who decent.

These Black Muslims need to carry on the Arab practice of Negro castration. Jews say that circumcision reduces cancer in people, but Arabs say that castration of niccas reduces cancer in society!

The biggest drawback for Islam the last decade is: Africans are abandoning this hateful religion and are converting to Christianity despite all those billions of dollars invested by the evil Arabs to Islamize the whole continent.

Than you obviously dont know what racism is then. Why talk about slavery. Do you know who made your clothes? Of course not. some little girl who doesnt even know how to spell her own name probably made your clothes. Bwahahahahaha..

Islam isnt a language. Really so Abid means black in Arabic? So that means that Christian Arabs, who speak Arabic say abid for black too right? I guess Oriental Christianity must be racist toward blacks too.

Now since Christians Arabs have been speaking Arabic longer than Muslim Arabs have, Christian Arabs have a longer history of calling blacks Abd than Muslim ARabs do. apparently.

Wow, so the black Africans have yet ANOTHER imported middle eastern religion to look forward. Great. Why cant they have and follow their own indigenous religions? Why do they have to worship some Jew from Palestine? Let them have their own black African religions.

The whole of North Africa was Christian? Really? Great. If I remember correctly the Whole of North, Central and South America were NOT Christian before the Europeans invaded, spreaded diseases, their religion and their language. What happened to the languages of the Americas? Did the Europeans destroy culture language and religion of those people and imposed a foreign middle Eastern religion on them and imposed their imported European language and culture on them? Why did you have to molest those American indians like that?

Yes and you obviously think there is something new that happens under the sun. Sit down. What do you how Muslims have treated Africans? Africans are Muslims. Just like they are Christian pagan, athiest communist etc. why do I need to do my history on the Islamic slave trade? So I can read about all those black African kinds making BANK from enslaving their rivals? those sold those other black Africans do ANYONE who would buy them.

What did Muhammed say about blacks? Maybe I should read what Jesus said about Gentiles. Or Maybe I should read Revelation and read what is says about people who dont believe in Jesus as a personal lord and savior. It isnt very nice to people like us. Apparently we are comparable to whores and thieves. I dont like religions that compare me to whores and thieves simply because I dont believe.
