Somebody wake up Muhammad Ali for a minute a tell him that he only traded in his “slave name” Cassius Clay for another, Muhammad Ali. Perhaps the Clay’s from way back yonder owned slaves. Maybe not. I’m no historian and I don’t know. What I do know is that somewhere along the line is that some enterprising folks from the Nation of Islam saw an opportunity to feed Cassius Clay a line of bull, and they took it.
They filled up the young mind of Cassius Clay with the idea that the white man was the cause of all evil and that a Muslim was only capable of peace, that is was only the white man that engaged in slavery and that it was only the Muslim heart that was capable of true freedom, that Muslims were incapable of engaging in something as abhorrent as slavery.
Ha ha! Fooled You! They fooled you good. When Cassius Clay is dead and gone I hope that people do not forget him, or his stupidity. I hope that people remember what he said and remember what a fool he was. I hope that people flock to his gravesite and leave little reminders of his ignorance of man and Islam.
Perhaps the people could leave newspaper clippings on his headstone of the modern-day 21st century slave trade, slave trade perpetrated by Islamic extremists nearly fifty years after Cassius Clay converted to Islam. Surely, if he were cognizant today he would somehow find a way to blame the white man and forgive his Muslim brothers if not outright endorse their actions. I cannot.
As reported at The Blaze by Sharona Schwartz:
The leader of the Nigerian Islamic extremist group Boko Haram said Allah has “instructed” him to begin selling the estimated 300 teenage girls they abducted last month from their school dormitories in northeast Nigeria.
In a new video, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau claimed responsibility for the April 15 kidnapping and said that plans for more abductions of girls are in the works, the Associated Press reported.
“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” Shekau said as he was flanked by masked men holding AK-47s. “Allah has instructed me to sell them. They are his property and I will carry out his instructions.”
The militants abducted the schoolgirls after shooting their way past school guards then loading the teenage girls onto trucks. Some of them escaped by jumping off of the open trucks.
The kidnapping occurred in northeastern Nigeria where there has been a surge of violence by the Boko Haram terrorist group trying to institute Islamic law in the African nation.
TheBlaze is unable to verify the number of girls who were kidnapped. The AP reported that 300 were abducted, while Reuters placed the number around 200.
