1) They are all Muslim countries; and
2) They were all just added to the State Department annual human-trafficking blacklist. (Nations on the list are subject to sanctions for not doing enough to stop the yearly flow of people, most of them (80%) female and up to half of them children, across international borders for the sex trade and other forms of forced indentured labor.)
Coincidence between 1 & 2? Uh, no. North Korea, Cuba, and Equatorial Guinea (which has its share of Muslims) are also on the list.
Repression. Communism. Islam. Three words. Same deal.
Religion of Peace? If you believe that, you’re part of the per minute birth-rate allegedly predicted by P.T. Barnum.
