Muslim Countries in Mideast, Africa Lead World in Human Traffic
by Gil Ronen
(IsraelNN.com) Muslim countries in the Middle East and north-central Africa lead the world in human trafficking, according to a new U.S. State Department report. Of the 17 countries that were given the "Tier 3" listing reserved for the worst offenders, nine were Muslim countries or countries with a large Muslim population from these two regions. Tier 3 countries are defined as those “whose governments do not fully comply with the minimum standards" of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 and "are not making significant efforts to do so.”
The Middle Eastern countries with Tier 3 status are Iran, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The north-central African countries are Mauritania, Chad, Sudan, Niger and Eritrea, all of which have very large Muslim populations.
Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE and Lebanon are on the Tier 2 Watchlist – one step above Tier 3.
The data in the report indicates that Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa are continuing their centuries-old practice of human trafficking. Historians estimate that between 9 and 14 million black Africans were brought to the Americas in the Atlantic slave trade and between 11 and 18 million black African slaves crossed the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara Desert between the Muslim conquests in the 7th century and 1900.
About the video:
My Slave, My Infidel is the story of the indigenous non-Arab Sudanese tribes in South Sudan and the western region of Darfur who are victimized by the Sudan government and their illegal militias who abduct slaves in the wake of the terror of Jihad.
Under the guise of civil war, the National Islamic Front government of Sudan declared Islamic Jihad against the infidels South Sudan that was further fueled by the discovery of oil in the borderlands. According to the Q’oran, an element of the Jihad calls for the enslavement of the Infidel. The film tells the story of the people who risked their lives in the midst of Jihad to rescue the slaves while the international community turned its back.
Goda Gadam Mohammed, a Sudanese Arab from the Reizegat Tribe of Darfur (the perpetrator tribe of the Janjiweed and the Murahaleen) followed the Jihad - until his compassion for the victims caused him to turn against the Jihad and his government. Goda’s compelling storytelling from the Arab perspective completes the film’s balance.
