A Tunisian Arab writer speaks on the taboo topic of endemic racism (against black Africans, Jews, Kurds, etc) in the Arabized nations of the Maghreb and Levant…

I noticed in my many trips across the Arab world, with my careful observation, that Arabs are perfectly racistEven in Tunisia, the most civilized Arab country, we still refer to whites as “free” and black as “slaves”. Blacks still suffer from being marginalized despite the fact that the law of the land and the constitution call for equality…

We, the whites, will not be liberated until we liberate ourselves from the racist views we have of other races and religions.

We still curse each other using “you’re Jewish” or “you’re Kurdish”, this is also racial and religious discrimination. Watch any Egyptian sitcom and tell me about the image of the Sudanese character. Listen to the Tunisian jokes about the Libyans or jokes about people from Hums in Greater Syria. Listen to the debates regarding noble families and family lineage… even horses now are divided between what is considered “noble” and what is not. We are racists to the bones. Attempting to hide or silence this fact will not help with the matter because we are a sick society which still suffers from the complexes of color and race.

    I would have too agree, what else do the Arabs want from the Jews for more than a century, yes, long before the so called “occupation” occured do to Arabs failed attack to annihilate (genocide) the Jews, it is Arabs, racism, hatred, apartheid (not the propaganda type by Arab lobby/Carter, but the actual anti-Jewish apartheid in all of Arab, Muslim land, including in ethnic cleansed Arab “Palestine”.

      “Allah has chosen the Arabs above all others.”–Umdat as-Salik m4.2

      “Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Allah created Adam when He had to create him and He struck his right shoulder and there emitted from it white offspring as if they were white ants. He struck his left shoulder and there emitted from it the black offspring as if they were charcoal. He then said (to those who had been emitted) from the right (shoulder): For Paradise and I do not mind. Then He said to those (who had been emitted) from his left shoulder: They are for hell and I do not mind. Transmitted by Ahmad.”–Jami at-Tirmidhi 38

      “Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks.”–Tabari II:11

      “Salamah bin Al-Akwa reported: The Prophet happened to pass by a group of people who were having a shooting match. (Upon seeing them, he) said, “Shoot, O sons of (Prophet) Isma`il, for your father was an archer.”

      Commentary: Arabs are also called Banu Isma`il because they are the descendants of Prophet Ibrahim’s son, Isma`il. This is the reason that Prophet Ibrahim is reckoned an ancestor of the Prophet for his being his descendant.”–Riyad-us-Saliheen 1336

      “Narrated Salim’s father: The Prophet said, “I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out of Medina and settling in Mahai’a. I interpreted that as (a symbol of) epidemic of Medina being transferred to Mahai’a, namely, Al-Juhfa.””–Sahih Bukhari Volume 9 Book 87 Number 163

      “Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun, said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed.””–Qadi ‘Iyad Musa al-Yahsubi, “Muhammad Messenger of Allah” (Ash-Shifa of Qadi ‘Iyad)

      “Narrated Jubair bin Haiya: ‘Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans. When Al-Hurmuzan embraced Islam, ‘Umar said to him. “I would like to consult you regarding these countries which I intend to invade.” Al-Hurmuzan said, “Yes, the example of these countries and their inhabitants who are the enemies of the Muslims, is like a bird with a head, two wings and two legs; If one of its wings got broken, it would get up over its two legs, with one wing and the head; and if the other wing got broken, it would get up with two legs and a head, but if its head got destroyed, then the two legs, two wings and the head would become useless. The head stands for Khosrau, and one wing stands for Caesar and the other wing stands for Faris. So, order the Muslims to go towards Khosrau.” So, ‘Umar sent us (to Khosrau) appointing An-Numan bin Muqrin as our commander. When we reached the land of the enemy, the representative of Khosrau came out with forty-thousand warriors, and an interpreter got up saying, “Let one of you talk to me!” Al-Mughira replied, “Ask whatever you wish.” The other asked, “Who are you?” Al-Mughira replied, “We are some people from the Arabs; we led a hard, miserable, disastrous life: we used to suck the hides and the date stones from hunger; we used to wear clothes made up of fur of camels and hair of goats, and to worship trees and stones. While we were in this state, the Lord of the Heavens and the Earths, Elevated is His Remembrance and Majestic is His Highness, sent to us from among ourselves a Prophet whose father and mother are known to us. Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.””–Sahih Bukhari Volume 4 Book 53 Number 386

      “He says: “The apostle of God and his companions went on a trip. (When) their belongings became too heavy for them to carry, Muhammad told me, `Spread your garment.’ They filled it with their belongings, then they put it on me. The apostle of God told me, ‘Carry (it), for you are a ship.’ Even if I was carrying the load of six or seven donkeys while we were on a journey, anyone who felt weak would throw his clothes or his shield or his sword on me so I would carry that, a heavy load. The prophet told me, ‘You are a ship”‘–Ahmad ibn Hanbal 5:222

      “One of the last things that the Messenger of Allah, said was, “May Allah fight the Jews and the Christians. They took the graves of their Prophets as places of prostration. Two [religions] shall not co-exist in the land of the Arabs.””–al-Muwatta 45:5:17

      “Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, Sahnun’s companion, said that whoever says that the Prophet was black is killed. The Prophet was not black.”–Qadi ‘Iyad Musa al-Yahsubi, “Muhammad Messenger of Allah” (Ash-Shifa of Qadi ‘Iyad)

      “Ham [Africans] begat all those who are black and curly-haired, while Japheth [Turks] begat all those who are full-faced with small eyes, and Shem [Arabs] begat everyone who is handsome of face with beautiful hair. Noah prayed that the hair of Ham’s descendants would not grow beyond their ears, and that whenever his descendants met Shem’s, the latter would enslave them.”–Tabari II:21

      “Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in Allah’s Cause. Killing him is a small matter to us.”–Tabari IX:69

      “Therefore, the Negro nations are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because [Negros] have little [that is essentially] human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated.”–“Muqaddimah”, Ibn Khaldun

      “And on the Day of Resurrection you will see those who lied against Allah–their faces will be black. Is not in hell an abode for the arrogant?”–Qur’an 39:60

    Ha Ha Ha.. Cool collection of jokes.

  5. One thing I’d really like to say is that often before buying more pc memory, look at the machine into which it is installed. If your machine will be running Windows XP, for instance, a memory threshold is 3.25GB. The installation of a lot more than this would simply constitute a waste. Make certain that one’s mother board can handle an upgrade quantity, as well. Good blog post.
