Ralph Lauren hands off CEO role to Old Navy executive

NEW YORK – Ralph Lauren is handing off his title as CEO of the fashion and home decor empire that he founded nearly 50 years ago.

More women reportedly accuse Saudi prince

More women have reportedly accused a Saudi prince of attacking them, two days after he was arrested for allegedly trying to force a female worker to perform a sex act on him.

The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Los Angeles Police are investigating other claims that Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 28, also attacked other women. Al-Saud was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of forced oral copulation of an adult.

Officer Drake Madison told the Times that detectives found “more victims who were also alleging crimes against Mr. Al-Saud.”

The Forgetten Christian Slaves of Islam

from http://www.barenakedislam.com/2015/09/07/to-the-shores-of-tripoli-the-forgotten-christian-slaves-of-islam/

Hundreds of thousands of white Europeans were captured by Barbary MUSLIM pirates and sold as slaves in North Africa and the Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 19th centuries. Tens of thousands of Black African slaves are still owned today by Arab Muslims.

These slave raids were conducted largely by Arab and Berber Muslim rather than Ottoman Turkish Muslims. However, during the height of the Barbary slave trade, the Barbary states were subject to Ottoman Muslim jurisdiction and ruled by Ottoman pashas. Furthermore, many slaves captured by the Barbary corsairs were sold eastward into Ottoman territories before, during, and after Barbary’s period of Ottoman rule.

The Barbary Muslim pirates kidnapped Europeans from ships in North Africa’s coastal waters (Barbary Coast). They also attacked and pillaged the Atlantic coastal fishing villages and town in Europe, enslaving the inhabitants. Villages and towns on the coast of Italy, Spain, Portugal and France were the hardest hit. Muslim slave-raiders also seized people as far afield as Britain, Ireland and Iceland.

In 1627, Muslim Pirates went on a pillaging and enslaving campaign to Iceland. After dropping anchor at Reykjavik, his forces ransacked the town and returned with 400 men, women and children and sold them in Algiers. In 1631, he made a voyage with a brigand of 200 pirates to the coast of Southern Ireland and ransacked and pillaged the village of Baltimore, carrying away 237 men, women and children to Algiers.

The barbaric slave-raiding activities of the Muslim pirates had a telling effect on Europe. France, England, and Spain lost thousands of ships, devastating to their sea-borne trade. Long stretches of the coast in Spain and Italy were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants until the nineteenth century.
