How inconvenient. Just as Islamic apologists are assuring us that slavery as practiced by the Islamic State has nothing — nothing! — to do with Islam, Muslim Mauritania strikes a blow against…anti-slavery activists.

Or does such a link actually exist, despite the best efforts of the apologists to obscure it?
“Black solidarity” activists, artists and scholars signed onto a statement noting a parallel between the Israeli occupation and confrontations in U.S. streets between the police and young blacks.
More than 1,000 black activists, artists, scholars and organizations released a statement that expresses “black solidarity” with the Palestinian struggle against Israel, Salon reports.
Some of the high-profile signatories include Angela Davis, Cornel West, death row inmate and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, and hip-hop artist Talib Kweli.
The statement draws a connection between the Palestinian struggle for liberation from Israel and young African Americans’ facing off against well-armed police in the streets of Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore.
