Which means that you are viewing all of this through an Euro-American lens... when you can "safely" assume that all "politicians" are alike, you are not allowing for differences according to culture OR history or place.

And as for the Arabs not being any better than Americans... well, I wouldn't quite know about that. Slavery is not a monolithic thing and what is called slavery varies according to the culture in which slavery occurs.

Besides, my Ancestors did not wind up in Arabia.
The wound up in America.
