Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Islamic Slavery


Comparing coddled, lionized, Leftist millionaire athletes with slaves forced to work in the fields in the scorching heat is obscene enough in itself, but Abdul-Jabbar looks even worse when one considers the fact that this famous, high profile convert to Islam has never said a word about the slavery that persists in the Islamic world. Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, owned slaves, and slavery is taken for granted in the Qur'an. Throughout Islamic history, the great caliphates and other Islamic political entities were slave societies.
