In Response To: UK is a weird country (Dr Shabbir, Florida)

To play the devil's advocate here for a sec :) it was a handful of enlightened British folks who led the charge for the beginning of the end of the official slave trade across the empire (with official being the operative word of course). Had it not been for this, the slave trade would very likely, and sadly, have still been alive and well today across the Muslim world. The Arab slave trade was no less systematic, but I am aware of no Arab enlightenment movement that attempted a similar feat, let alone actually succeed.
