Dozy Bint of the Week: Sarah Magnusson, Romanticising and Propagandising for Islamic Slave-Raiding and Islamic Sexual Slavery, in "The Sealwoman's Daughter"

I have not read this book, nor do I intend to (though the redoubtable "Mary Jackson" might be prepared to hold her nose and wade through it, and then take it apart; I can only imagine what might happen if Hugh Fitzgerald were to deign to take his razor pen and wit to it).

The two reviews that I read - after a couple of naive and wilfully-uninformed-about-Islam friends, naively enthusiastic about it, drew it to my attention - confirmed me in the conviction that it was the very last book I would ever want to read... especially given what I know from, for example, 'Easy Meat', or from Barnabas Fund and British Pakistani Christian Association accounts of the experiences of Coptic and Pakistani Christian girls seized and enslaved by Muslims, or the many, many testimonies, that I have come across, by Yazidi and Christian girls who have lived to tell the tale of what they endured at the hands of pious jihad-waging Mohammed-emulating Muslims.  

Perhaps Ms Magnusson should be sent a copy of 'Easy Meat', and a sheaf of testimonies, garnered from all over, of what it is really like to be the sex slave of brutal Muslim masters.  Or perhaps she's beyond shame.

Here are the two unintentionally-instructive reviews of her book that I found on the net.  

One from the reliably and grovellingly-Islamophile "Guardian" (need I say more) which fawns all over it, of course.

The other is from "The Scotsman", and is equally nauseating.

I then went to Amazon UK, to see what kind of reviews it was getting there.

Of the five reviews that have appeared so far, four were wildly enthusiastic, revealing to me just how deadly-dangerous this saccharine propaganda-piece - dawa by any other name - is and will be, for those uninformed kuffar females who will buy it and read it; just one was critical, but nowhere near critical enough, though it did point out, acerbly, the following awkward fact - "...though the author implies that the numbers of Europeans [thus enslaved by Muslim raiders] were in the thousands, whereas well over one million Europeans met this fate."

Anyone who wants to know about the Barbary pirates, and the ruin that they wreaked upon non-Muslim individuals and upon whole societies, should ignore Ms Magnusson's propaganda piece and instead read "White Gold", by Giles Milton.  And they can then also consult Emmet Scott's article "The Islamic Trade in European Slaves", right here at New English Review.

I quote - "Europeans in the Dar al-Islam suffered a terrible fate.

"Able-bodied men were generally branded and put to endless back-breaking labour, either as galley-slaves or as miners. They were not permitted to marry and were denied all semblance of family life or female companionship.

"Young boys were invariably castrated – and raped – whilst women were consigned to the sex-slavery of the harem."

And the modern-day testimony of the Yazidi and Christian girls who have managed to escape from Islamic State probably gives a far more accurate description of what it is like to be enslaved and continually raped by ruthless Muslim masters, than what one will find in Ms Magnusson's book.

For good measure, and to drive home the point about the extreme brutality routinely meted out by Muslims to enslaved non-Muslims, more from Mr Scott, on the Muslim trade in - and brutal treatment of - black slaves.

No-one - especially today, in the wake of 'Easy Meat' and the exploits of Islamic State and of Boko Haram and the well-publicised mass kidnapping of the girls of Chibok - has any business setting out, as Ms Magnusson has done, to romanticise Muslim slave-raiding and sexual enslavement of abducted infidel females and children, to represent it as anything other than the appallingly evil practice that it was and is.
