The Myth of Islamic Civilization
For 14 centuries Islam has built its cities on the ruins of conquered civilizations and built new cities with slaves from those civilizations. This occurs even today. But as westerners and as members of the first and only civilization to outlaw slavery in any of its forms, we impute our societal realities on the appearances of other societies. As this video shows, “Islamic Civilization” is a myth. Perhaps if there were Jews living over ceasefire lines in Dubai, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch would give a shit. But they don’t because Amnesty international and Human Rights Watch are not in the business of giving a shit about human beings, just hating Jews.
