The Dark World of the Arab Child Slave Trade



In a story last week in the British newspaper The Sun, a private investigator stated that Madeleine McCann, the subject of probably the world’s most famous unsolved kidnapping case, is in the United States. The British girl was three years old when she went missing five years ago from a seaside resort in Portugal, where her parents were vacationing. The Portuguese police, in what has been termed a “bungled investigation,” at first accused the parents of the abduction but later cleared them. Portuguese security officials halted their investigation to find the missing child in 2008 after stating she had probably been “stolen to order.”

Since her disappearance, numerous alleged sightings have been made of the little girl across Europe, Africa, in North America and in Australia. The investigator making the latest claim concerning McCann’s whereabouts is an amateur sleuth originally from Angola. He told The Sun that a Portuguese paedophile ring, also responsible for other child abductions, took the McCann girl and has handed his findings over to authorities. The claim that a paedophile ring is responsible for McCann’s disappearance has been made before, especially concerning one in Belgium. And while Madeleine McCann girl may have been snatched by such evil hands, it is surprising that an equally depraved institution — one of gigantic size — has never even been considered in the media as McCann’s possible kidnapper, namely, the Arab child slave trade.

While tens of thousands of adults are also victims of Arab slavers, many people only first took notice of the Arab slave trade in children when reports of enslaved child camel jockeys emerged from Persian Gulf countries. A 2004 HBO documentary on the subject was especially responsible for making Americans aware of this modern-day barbarism. These boys, who were sold by poor parents hoping their offspring would some day experience a better life, were primarily from South Asia. But instead of a life of dignity and meaningful work, they wound up in the Middle East where they were made to race camels for their Arab masters. Beaten and often sexually abused, they were all kept undernourished, so that the camels would have less weight to carry.

“As many as 6,000 child camel jockeys…languished in hidden slavery on ozbah farms, where their masters beat them and starved them to keep their weight down,” wrote E. Benjamin Skinner in his book A Crime So Monstrous.

When investigating in the 1990s the enslavement of hundreds of thousands of black Africans in Mauritania by Arab-Berber masters, African-American author Samuel Cotton was stunned to discover that African children were still being kidnapped by Arabs travelling with camels carrying big baskets. The child, usually playing alone, would suddenly be snatched from its play and placed in one such basket, after which its new owners hurried away. The children, he was told, are sometimes found later “hundreds of miles away as slaves.”

Also during his investigation, which was summarized in his highly informative book Silent Terror: A Journey Into Contemporary African Slavery, Cotton was told there was “still a huge trafficking in slaves going on between Mauritania and the United Arab Emirates.”

Black African children are also not always stolen so surreptitiously. Until recently in the southern Sudan, the old-fashioned slave raid witnessed villages being burned down, the men killed and the women and children captured. This was the Arab slavers’ main harvesting tool of humans. Thousands of children were captured by this murderous method and forcibly taken as agricultural, domestic and sex slaves to Arab northern Sudan — where many still languish today. Darfur has also seen many children disappear from both refugee camps and towns subjected to central government attack. They are suspected victims of Arab slave hunters.

But it is not only non-Arab children who are Arab child slave trade victims. An Egyptian newspaper, referring to a 2008 UNICEF report, stated Egyptian children are being bought and sold for about $3,000 for “domestic work and farming, among other things.” This trade in children is so extensive in Egypt, organizations are “employing brokers, and even operating their own web sites.

“Many are also sent to the Gulf States, with orphanages being a major supplier,” the story further reports.

Even from a country as far way as the Philippines children are trafficked to the Middle East. In 2008, for example, 34 minors between the ages of 14 and 16 were rescued at Manila airport by social workers as they were about to depart on fake passports for unnamed Middle Eastern countries. Again, war and poverty played a role in these young people’s desperation. They were from refugees camps in the war-torn southern island of Mindanao where an insurgency is raging between government forces and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.




While most civilized people nowadays recoil in horror from the idea of slavery, especially when it involves children, many fundamentalist Middle Eastern Muslims do not. In fact, they view the psychological death and destruction of innocent lives as their legal right. Under sharia law, which rules the Sudan and the Gulf States, Muslims are legally allowed to own slaves. Bernard Lewis, the eminent scholar of Islam, writes “…the institution of slavery is not only recognized but is elaborately regulated by Sharia law.” Another reason for this inhuman sense of entitlement is the prophet Muhammad was also a slave owner, setting the example for the fundamentalists.

Besides a codified religious supremacy, there is also the element of racial superiority behind the hideous practice of Arab slavery, especially when it concerns black Africans. Arab racism is at the roots of Islamic slavery that has seen 14 million black Africans enslaved and sold around the Islamic world from the seventh to the twentieth century.

Unfortunately for its victims, the abolition of Arab slavery will be difficult to even initiate. The case of Dr. Abu Zayd, a Cairo University professor and Islamic theologian, amply illustrates this. When Zayd contended that “keeping slave girls and taxing non-Muslims” was contrary to Islam, an Egyptian sharia court forcibly divorced him from his wife and declared him an apostate. He later had to flee to Europe to escape Islamic extremists who now wanted to kill him because of his apostate status.

Slavery was only abolished in Saudi Arabia and other states of the Arabian Peninsula in the early 1960s, so one cannot expect an institution that has existed for centuries to suddenly disappear overnight. For example, the widow of the emir of Abu Dhabi and her four daughters were caught living in Brussels in 2008 with 20 slaves who they were mistreating. And Dubai is the center for the region’s sex industry that Skinner calls “a place of slavery for women.” Promised jobs, thousands of women full of hope arrive there from Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia annually only to have their passports taken away immediately upon arrival and to be forced into prostitution.

One Gulf State Arab woman, a former candidate for Kuwait’s parliament, does not even hide the fact there should be sex slaves for Arab men and claims sheikhs and muftis she spoke with in Mecca sanctioned this. As a result, Salwa al-Mutairi wants non-Muslim women captured in war made available to Muslim men, so that the men can be “protected from adultery.” She affirmed: “For example, in the Chechnya war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait…I don’t see any problem in this.”

Al-Mutairi’s despicable utterances came only a week after a Muslim preacher announced “Islam allows Muslims to buy and sell conquered infidel women, so that ‘when I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her’.”

In light of this widespread phenomenon, why is the possibility that Madeleine McCann is a sex slave somewhere in the Middle East not even considered in her investigation? Yes, it is only conjecture, but so is looking into all the other possibilities. In terms of what we know of the Middle Eastern human trafficking rings, it is completely within reason to consider that McCann is hidden away, like so many other tragic victims, in a harem in the Persian Gulf or in some other Arab country. This could easily explain why she has been so difficult to find – and may never be found.

The fact the McCanns were at a Portuguese seaside resort when Madeleine was taken also made the kidnappers’ task easier. Since the criminals most likely made their escape by sea, there would be no borders to cross until they reached their destination — potentially a Middle Eastern one. The Islamic world, after all, is very close to Portugal.

The British government has recently assigned 30 detectives in a major effort to locate the missing girl. Of course, myriad evils could be behind this tragic crime. But, in light of what is known about the Arab child slave trade, will the investigators spend any time considering the distinct possibility of Middle Eastern sex-slave traffickers’ involvement? The historical record and empirical reality would justify it.

I think that this article is so upsetting - that the world is populated still with people who can do this to others and children is beyond belief. It is something that will continue whilst there is no real attempt to stop it. I don't know how it can be stopped unless Governments like ours can influence the perpetrators. However, since religion is also involved it will be a difficult thing to achieve.

This article is ridiculous on so many levels.

In any case, the McCanns DID in fact jump on the old Arab paedo/slave ring very early on.

Philomena McCann: Madeleine could have been snatched by a Saudi paedophile
Metodo 3, the Spanish detectives agency hired by the McCann have extended their search to Saudi Arabia, according to Philomena McCann, sister of Gerry McCann. Speaking to the magazine The People, Philomena McCann said investigators from Metodo 3 believe Madeleine McCann “may have been snatched by a millionaire paedophile” from Saudi Arabia.

"They are searching everywhere for her and Saudi Arabia is the latest destination - we don't know why. We are hoping they are following up a lead which will help us find her. We pray the detectives can bring her back safe and sound”, Madeleine's aunt told The People.


He Spanish detectives consider that “the Middle East state could harbour thousands of people wealthy enough to pay for a 'trophy' European child to be kidnapped to order.”

“Close the borders to Morocco” Kate McCann cried, when she discovered her little daughter had been abducted by force.


Unsubstantiated, over-dramatic stirring up of xenophobia – of course the McCanns have already gone down this route

Isn't it odd that every angle has been covered already though ?

What does that mean?

Why is you are taking a child slave to Saudi would you go to a tiny village that is lightly populated in early May and snatch a child to order? It makes zero sense.

If you peruse this mag's list of articles ...

http://frontpagemag.com/

... you will notice that ithere is a definite political/cultural slant.

This particular article is IMO is not adding anything useful to the Madeleine story - it is being used to beef up its own agenda. In the spirit of free speech it has every right to do that, but at least we should be aware of it in the same way that we should be aware of any publication's individual take on any subject.

Christ.

Very sad for the orphans of Saudi arabia or the children of poor Indians however it has nothing to do with the child of British doctors and THAT is why nothing more is being made of this idea, they've TOLD us in the article it's poor and abandoned children being sold into this and the idea an Arab slave trader would need to go to Pria de Luz, to the Ocean Club resort, to get his next camel jockey - and do what? have her trained in America? is just so stupid and ludicrous.

Next theory, please!

Absolute rubbish. It's like reading articles on paedophilia and child abuse in Portugal on the pro sites. It just doesn't happen elsewhere. Sadly, it does - Britain very much included.

Sounds like someone wanting to have a good bash at the enemy of the day, Muslims. Why not, we've had the lawless corrupt sardine munchers and the gypsies.

civilized people nowadays recoil in horror from the idea of slavery, especially when it involves children, many fundamentalist Middle Eastern Muslims do not

In other words they aren't civilized. It's offensive to the vast majority of Muslims as well as the notion that someone could sneak over from some "millionaire A-rab" such as Aunty Philo thinks, to steal a child from her bed and spirit her off to a harem -?

Pedophilia and child abduction exist everywhere, we still have not one drop of evidence that either of those things was involved here and it just adds this element of victimization by dark forces when we all know that the most likely culprits exist much closer to home.
