Written by one of the commanders of the European-financed force sent to end the thousand-year-old Arab slave trade in Africa, this astonishing book tells of the little known Arab Campaign, or “Congo-Arab War” of 1892 to 1894.
European intervention against the Arab slave trade started with the foundation in 1876 of the International African Association which had as its aim the “exploration and opening to civilization of Central Africa” and the “abolition of the trade in blacks.”
The Arab slave trade in black Africans—which had started soon after the first Muslim incursions into North Africa in 640 AD, and continued until the 1920s—had encroached all the way to Central Africa. From there, Africans were sold into slavery by other Africans—many of them converts to Islam—or by Arab colonists, all directed from the main Islamic slave trading island outpost of Zanzibar on Africa’s east coast.
In terms of the 1884 Berlin Conference, Central Africa was turned into the “Congo Free State” and was placed under the control of the king of Belgium, Leopold II. That date marked the start of formal preparations to drive the Arab slave traders out.
Among the many fascinating details revealed in this book—all of which contributed to its latest suppression by politically-correct establishment historians—are the following:
— that all the Africans in the Congo basin were voracious cannibals as late as the 1890s;
— that the slave trade was conducted with equal ferocity by both Africans and Arabs alike; and
— that a vicious anti-white racist sentiment was always bubbling up among the natives, resulting in repeated attempts to exterminate all Europeans in the area, missionaries, doctors, or otherwise.
