Slave to the whine

It seem Melanie Phillips has taught Charles something new. She's highlighted a period of history in which Muslims took British men, women and children and sold them into slavery from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. Why this is of importance to the War on Terror is anyones guess, but with Charles any sort of story that shows Muslims behaving badly is fair game and aids his quest to provoke the more extreme of his comment section fascists.

The problem with this piece of news of course is not Charles shamelessley displaying his Islamophobia but the fact that in the same period of time in history the Christian British and other western nations were undertaking the same kind of barbaric operations and trading. At a far larger scale. But that doesn't count to people like Charles. The victims of that outrage weren't white.
