Why would someone go to all the trouble to abduct a high profile child like little Maddie with all the publicity it was bound to attract? As stories begin to emerge of torture allegations against the Portuguese police to extract confessions from other mothers in similar cases, you have to wonder if there is a racket going on involving the Portuguese police and perhaps a white slave trade ring.
Slavery is alive and kicking in the modern world. This is real slavery where people are abducted and used against their will. Small children are taken from poor families in India and forced to work with their little fingers knotting the beautiful Persian rugs wealthy western families have on their floors. For young Brazilian girls the fate is predictable:
In big cities of Brazil there are a lot of unemployed people. A lot of them are very poor and live in very little shacks all crowded together. Lots of them hang out all day and have no hope for the future.
A man would go around and meet teenage girls. He was handsome and talked real smooth. He would flirt with them. He would tell them that he knew where there was a lot of good paying jobs working as maids and cooks. Up in the gold fields of Brazil there were boom towns, filled with rich men and not enough women to do the cleaning and cooking (as in the US, such jobs in Brazil are generally held by women). He would fill their heads with whatever dream seemed to be the girls thing. And he would get them to agree to fly away with him and some other girls he met to a great new opportunity.
When they got there, they got some surprises. The boom town turned out to be a few muddy blocks of crummy little shacks. They were told they owed huge amounts of money for the plane ticket and their rent and their food. There were no jobs as maids or waitresses. The only jobs were as prostitutes. They were told they had to be prostitutes and pay back their debts. They would not be allowed to leave.
These places were hundreds of miles deep in the jungle and none of the girls knew where they were. There was no phones and no police. The only way in and out was by plane, and no one could afford that, assuming the boss would allow it in the first place. There was only one way to get any money at all.
Girls who refused to go along were beaten. Some who tried to escape were killed. The rest of them were scared and did what they were told. (More here)
Here is a must read on slavery in Iran. Similar and worse conditions exist in Saudi Arabia. A leading Saudi government cleric and author of the country's religious curriculum advocates slavery.
"Slavery is a part of Islam," says Sheik Saleh Al-Fawzan, according to the independent Saudi Information Agency, or SIA.
In a lecture recorded on tape by SIA, the sheik said, "Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam."
His religious books are used to teach 5 million Saudi students, both within the country and abroad, including the United States.
Al Fawzan – a member of the Senior Council of Clerics, Saudi Arabia's highest religious body – says Muslims who contend Islam is against slavery "are ignorant, not scholars."
It's very possible that pretty little Madeleine McCann, may well have been abducted for a white slavery ring. Let's join our prayers with the McCanns' that she will be found and returned to her parents if this is the case and that this disgusting ring is busted wide open.
