If you thought the social media giants couldn’t possibly become more evil than they have demonstrated themselves to be, think again: while Facebook ruthlessly moves to suppress voices that speak out against jihad violence and Sharia oppression, it turns to a blind eye to Islamic slavery so as not to “alienate” Muslim slave traders.
This revelation comes from a September 16 article in the Wall Street Journal, which begins by noting that “a Mexican drug cartel was using Facebook to recruit, train and pay hit men. The behavior was shocking and in clear violation of Facebook’s rules. But the company didn’t stop the cartel from posting on Facebook or Instagram, the company’s photo-sharing site.”
Ultimately Facebook caved under pressure and finally did the right thing: “The company took down some offending pages, but took only limited action to try to shut down the activity until Apple Inc. threatened to remove Facebook’s products from the App Store unless it cracked down on the practice. The threat was in response to a BBC story on maids for sale. In an internal summary about the episode, a Facebook researcher wrote: ‘Was this issue known to Facebook before BBC enquiry and Apple escalation?’ The next paragraph begins: ‘Yes.’”
It gets worse: the drug cartel was just one of many evil actors using Facebook with no problem, while it banned, blocked, shadowbanned and otherwise hamstrung the pages of conservatives, supporters of former President Trump, and other dissidents from the Left’s sinister agenda: “One document from earlier this year suggested the company should use a light touch with Arabic-language warnings about human trafficking so as not to ‘alienate buyers’—meaning Facebook users who buy the domestic laborers’ contracts, often in situations akin to slavery.”
Slavery is acceptable in Islam. The Qur’an has Allah telling Muhammad that he has given him girls as sex slaves: “Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty.” (Qur’an 33:50)
Muhammad bought slaves: “Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledged allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man).” (Muslim 3901)
Muhammad took female Infidel captives as slaves: “Narrated Anas: The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives. She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet. The Prophet made her manumission as her ‘Mahr.’” (Bukhari 5.59.512) Mahr is bride price: Muhammad freed her and married her. But he didn’t do this to all his slaves:
Muhammad owned slaves: “Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!’” (Bukhari 8.73.182) There is no mention of Muhammad’s freeing Anjasha.
And so while Facebook continues to crack down ever harder on content that it deems “Islamophobic,” it evidently has no problem with Islamic slavery. After all, one wouldn’t want to “alienate” pro-slavery Arabic-speaking Facebook users. Once they come to the United States, they’ll vote Democratic. Conservatives won’t. Case closed.
