Obama Administration Silent After Egyptian Constitution Restores Slavery
gateway ^ | December 1, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 12/01/2012 2:38:07 PM PST by george76

It’s no secret that Egyptian slavery is as old as the pyramids. It’s also common knowledge that Barack Obama’s ancestors owned slaves...

So it’s really no surprise that he helped usher in a radical Egpytian regime that is restoring slavery.

...

The Obama administration declined to criticize Egypt’s constitution despite its slavery clause.

Egypt deserves the MB Morsi and of course the US public will NOT hear about this at all!

Wonder how the Liberal Media and Black Racist groups will handle this news?

Probably ignore it or make excuses

Reality is, that, in Muslim nations, the lighter skinned people own the darker-skinned (African) as slaves.

Obama's not against slavery.

He's only against colonialism, whitey and small (i.e. non-union) bidness.

And America...he really doesn't like America.

Thanks for posting - very interesting.

Although the guy in the photo holding up a crucifix is NOT holding a Koran in the other hand, as the article states, unless they have taken to putting crosses on the covers of Korans...he looks to me like a Copt who is very, very worried about what might happen.

Why in the world would two socialists like Obama and Hillary sit on their hands while this happens?

Because they’re not socialists. They’re grifters....con men.....pickpockets....and Obama isn’t even the Steer on the pickpocket team. He’s just a Stall.

They throw the leftist baloney out to distract you while they pick your pocket.

No “/sarc” tag, so I presume that you would also say that there is no difference between “road pizza” and Sicilian deep dish pizza?

The headline is not completely accurate.

“Obama Administration Silent After Egyptian Constitution Restores Slavery”

“Omissions of certain articles, such as bans on slavery or promises to adhere to international rights treaties, were equally worrying to critics of the new draft, who pulled out from the panel before the vote.”

While I would not put it past the Islamists to restore slavery, the omission of an article in the DRAFT version is not quite the same as “Egyptian Constitution Restores Slavery”.

Did the Draft version actually get ratified?

That looks like prayer book (I have a Greek Orthodox prayer book and the cover is very similar), although it could be a bible. No way it’s a Koran. Not to mention we don’t know at what event this person was participating.

He probably thinks of himself as a community activist making his own decisions on how best to destroy capitalism (or most of it anyway). He probably is not directly controlled by the various enemies of America who helped bring him to power (i.e. not an "agent" of a particular foreign power). In the end it may not make much difference.

It will take many slaves to destroy the pyramids. That's what the Muslims want to do.
The whole of Egypt will be wiped flat while Obama whistles past the mulligan hole.

Wth, at least they'll be killing each other, but when they get bored they'll come
after us again, but this time with Iranian nukes. And by god,
somebody will be arrested for nuking us because that would be illegal.....

Let the Egyptian elites force the slaves to undo the pyramids block by block without machinery.

Then we can see how they built them in ancient times.

The secret of the pyramids will be revealed at last by reverse engineering, lol.

“What will the members of the UN say to this?”

The members of the UN will approve because they want to own slaves too. All of the Muslim states approve, but what will the so called “democracies” do? Crickets.

They must not make their Muslim immigrants mad or they’ll start rioting, beating people, smashing shops, and burning cars. You know, demonstrating their civilization to the world.

Say, isn't CNN International on a current, big, worldwide campaign AGAINST HUMAN SLAVERY???!!

Did not CNN have crews in Tahrir Square 24/7 for weeks on end, siding with the anti-Mubarek protestors, egging them on, interviewing them only, giving no coverage the other side, and jubiliantly dancing with the Islamists and others during the Arab Spring? Where are they now?

Where are they over this new Muslism Brotherhood/Shariah-based EGYPTIAN SLAVERY rearing its heads?

Nowhere. That's where.

Typical hypocritical libs.

Slavery is okay under Islam which follows Mohammed’s laws. There can be no reformation of Islam because Mad Man Moe was the LAST prophet and he is also considered “the perfect man”.

He was an anti-Christ deceiver and a conquering warlord.

Read Leviticus 25 and get back to me. Either the people take personal responsibility for the poor or they belong to the government which then uses the poor to enslave everyone.

Sound familiar? It's a very complex issue, thus making it easier than to throw the "s-word" around for political or religious purposes.

Biblical “slavery” is more like indentured servitude. Muslim slavery is life-long.

Biblical “slavery” is more like indentured servitude.

Not for gentiles. From the passage I suggested reading in the post above:

Lev. 25:45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

Note that the standards for acceptable labor and treatment are different between brethren in Adonai and gentiles. By inference, it is acceptable to rule over gentiles with rigor.

Next time, do what the post suggests and read the passage; you just might learn something, and not all of it is easy to grasp considering our Christian understanding of equal treatment under the law. Yet by no means are those standards universal in the Western world. There is a reason the Ladino Jews were making so much money in Andalus trading in slaves with the Arabs.

The Muslim powers of Iberia both raided for slaves and purchased slaves from European merchants, often the Jewish Radhanites, one of the few groups that could easily move between the Christian and Islamic worlds.[Olivia Remie Constable (1996). "Trade and Traders in Muslim Spain: The Commercial Realignment of the Iberian Peninsula, 900-1500". Cambridge University Press. pp. 203–204. ISBN 0521565030] Middle men as always.

Muslim slavery is life-long.

Muslim slavery is cruel. Everything about Islam is a parallel mockery of the Torah, as was obvious had you read the Hebrew in Genesis 16. Sigh.

Sorry, but I get damned tired of FReepers "instructing" me on subjects of which they are clearly ignorant, without having so much as looked at my FR page to find out I'd written a book encompassing this very topic.

>>46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

You’d have to come up with the exact Hebrew interpretation of this. You inherit them for a possession (until the year of Jubilee or when these children you buy grow up1?) and then they shall be your bondman (they have to do what you say as if you are still their parent?).

Not really an easy passage to grasp. I do agree that the Jews were slave traders, as was everyone else during that period.
