As bad as the history of slavery in the United States is, it’s no match for the type of slavery that continues to exist in the Muslim world to this day. This find by Daniel Greenfield doesn’t just demonstrate that but the collective silence from the mainstream media over real slavery taking place today is deafening.

In Egypt, that country’s first draft constitution since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, omits bans on slavery and has been cause for great concern as the Muslim Brotherhood president – Mohamed Morsi – continues to seize more power.
Via the AP:
An Islamist-dominated panel is voting on Egypt’s draft constitution, the country’s first charter after the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. The draft largely reflects the conservative vision of the Islamists, with articles that rights activists, liberals and Christians fear will lead to restrictions on the rights of women and minorities and civil liberties in general.
Omissions of certain articles, such as bans on slavery or promises to adhere to international rights treaties, were equally worrying to critics of the new draft, who pulled out from the panel before the vote.
The United States abolished slavery in 1865, after a bloody civil war with the Thirteenth Amendment. Yet, slavery in this country gets more attention than slavery in the Muslim world that exists to this day.
