It's been a stressful week. I've basically been shanghaied by Arabian Gitmo. Thus, when I came across this video about Haiti's Muslim community, my first though was: why did I come all the way to Cairo ?! I find Haiti and it's history to be as fascinating and enthralling as I do the Middle East. Both pull you in and captivate your senses like a woman undressing slowly. Recently, books have been written about African Muslim brought to the "New World" as slaves. Here you can find passages from one detailing Muslim maroons in Haiti.
Here is a link to on Haiti's Jewish population as well. According to this article, There are approximately 25 to 30 Jews left in Haiti at present, most of who live in Port-au-Prince.
Halas, tomorrow will be a better day, insha'Allah.
