  1. what will they think of next.

    no mention of the thousands of men, women and children in Israeli dungeons?

  2. what will they think of next.

    slavery in Isreal
    it seems as though you wanted to cover this up.
    ………Very often in the Synagogue, rabbis remind the community of our terrible enslavement in Egypt where we build the homes and temples of Egyptian society. But who has remembered that most of today’s Israeli homes and synagogues are built by foreign workers, laboring often under the most terrible and inhumane conditions. ……….

    The stories of all three former slaves are very sad but it was Shin Dong-hyuk’s story that blew me away. The North Koreans made him kill his own family members, mother, brother. Something to think about as we watch the North Koreans doing so well at the Olympics.

    I watch the slave auction in Pakistan and Bangladesh on BBC. Still, to this day they line the young girls up and bid for them. Some are virgins and some higher virgins are sold as ‘unspoilt’ in that they are virgins that have not been used sexually in other ways. It was a horrible program to watch and horrible to think this is modern Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    Slavery and sex slavery is commanded and allowed in the Koran. Today many Islamic religious leaders still voice support for slavery as an institution.

    Egyptian imam: “When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her”

    Barbados is still on the Tier 2 Watchlist for human trafficking for 2012 just like last year. We’re doing nothing about it and going downhill fast.

    Too bad. Place going to hell.
