The servants, known as Khadamah, usually range in age from 9 to 18 and often are forced to sleep in kitchens.The Sons of Allah claim the moral high ground against western civilization despite copious evidence to the contrary; Islam's continuing support of slavery is but one example of how Muslim immigration is inappropriate for America and should be ended.
