THE LOST SHEEP
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
- Matthew 15:24-
Arab Slave Trade
was the practice of Slavery in the Arab world, mainly in Western Asia, North Africa, Southeast Africa, the Horn of Africa and certain parts of Europe (such as Iberia and Sicily) beginning in the era of the Roman Empire.
The City of Basra (also known as Basara), situated in present-day Iraq, is believed to have involved enslaved and had originally been captured from the African Great Lakes region and areas further south in East Africa. Over 500,000 slaves and free men who were imported from across the Muslim Empire and claimed over "tens of thousands of lives in lower Iraq".
Slaves taken to the "Middle East" were often used in strenuous agricultural work. As the plantation economy boomed and the Arabs became richer, agriculture and other manual labor work was thought to be demeaning. The resulting labor shortage led to an increased slave market. Some descendants of African slaves brought to the Middle East during the slave-trade still live there today, and are looked down upon in their society.
The Trans Saharan Slave Trade (Arab Slave Trade)
Started while the Israelites were under Roman occupation.
When we look back in history we find that the worshiping of Stone was very accepted in the "middle East" which we as God's chosen people were warned not to follow the nations but to keep our Law Statues and Commandments. Deuteronomy 28:15. But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
Did Israel listen No, Instead 2 Chronicles 21:14 Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods: 15. And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day. 16. Moreover the LORD stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines, and of the Arabians, that were near the Ethiopians: by not hearkening to The Most High's Commandments we find that our fore-parents fall into the hands of our enemies over and over again.
For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
over and over again we get corrected by God bringing us under Subjection to our enemies. But we continue to be a stiff-necked and rebellious. And as result the ultimate slavery and desolation loomed in our future
Deuteronomy 28: 64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
Under these curses we find that Israel adopts false gods and idols primarily Stone under Arab Slavery.
Jeremiah 3:2. Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness. This show that following the Arab man customs is not for The Israelites to do here we see again the behavior of a disobedient people.
Jeremiah 2:26. As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets, 27. Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.These false religions can't save they enslave.
3.And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. 4. Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; 6.Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: 6. The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. because of the hatred and envy the other nations have for the Israelites they will always used and abuse as show in the verses above. O Tyre, and Zidon are the So Called Africans and Palestine the Arabs. This show us that the Africans and the Arabs sold us to the Greeks which is the so called White man. which brings us into the facts of how did we even begin to live on the western banks of Africa.
Luke 21: 20-22
20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
In these verses, Christ prophesies about the future destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Romans in 70 AD. After the destructions of Jerusalem in 70 AD, the Israelites fled into many places primarily the neck know as the interiors of Africa. During their exile in Africa, they were captured and sold throughout the continent during the Trans-Saharan slave trade and would later be sold in the largest selling and murdering business in the history of humanity.
After being exiled into Africa, Israelites were captured and sold as slaves. Some men were made eunuchs to serve while under their Arab captives as well as to prevent reproduction. try to commit Genocide upon our people. The Trans-Saharan Slave Trade was pioneered by the Arabs, they were responsible for selling the Israelites into slavery to the European traders. There were over 112 million casualties of the slaves by the hands of the Islamic slave trade. It is said that between 10 and 18 million Africans were enslaved by Arab slave traders and taken across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and the Sahara Desert between the 650's and 1900's. That is why there is a staggering number of lives lost during this era, about 80% of the African slaves died before they could make it to the slave markets. Unlike the trans-Atlantic slave trade to the New World, Arabs supplied African slaves to the Muslim world, which at its peak stretched over three continents from the Atlantic, Morocco & Spain to India and Eastern China.
The first captivity of the Israelites happened in their infancy as a nation. The Egyptians afflicted Israel with hard bondage. (~1800-1446 BC)
Exodus 1:11-14 King James Version (KJV)
11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to AFFLICT THEM with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.
12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:
14 And they made their lives bitter with HARD BONDAGE, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.
The Most High rose up Moses to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt with great signs and wonders.
Exodus 13:17-18 King James Version (KJV)
17 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:
18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

51 In the selfsame manner wrote he to his whole kingdom, and appointed overseers over all the people, commanding the cities of Juda to sacrifice, city by city.

Although there were many dynasties which had us as slaves between the Romans and this current age, we speed forward to our last but major enslavement. The American Captivity is still fresh for the Israelites, for they are yet this day in their captivity. America is biblically referred to as spiritually Egypt and Sodom. It is also known as Babylon the Great. In this captivity, Moses prophesied that the Israelites would go into spiritual Egypt, the house of bondage/slavery, by way of ships (1619). John prophesied that mass murdering of our people in this place…(1492 - PRESENT)
