Niet alleen het Westen zich schuldig heeft gemaakt aan kolonisatie en discriminatie. Ook de Arabieren hebben bijvoorbeeld bij het veroveren van Noord Afrika - in het kader van de Islam - hun sporen nagelaten.

De oorspronkelijke Berber cultuur van Noord Afrika is in het verleden ingelijfd en voor een groot deel verdwenen ten gevolge hiervan.

Tot op de dag van vandaag worden Berbers en hun taal & cultuur nog steeds gediscrimineerd t.g.v. het geïmporteerde, overheersende, Arabisch-Islamitische erfgoed.

Discrimination by the Arab invaders against the indigenous Berber population of North Africa:

--------------------------------------------------------------

As with other indigenous peoples in the world, Berbers are now protesting against the undervaluation of their culture and identity

Up until a few years ago being Berber was considered to be secondary (like in many societies in the West: Indians in America, Aboriginals in Australia, Lapps in Norway): in the most modernized society in North Africa, Tunisia, being Berber is synonymous with being an illiterate peasant dressed in traditional garments.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Today, Berber activists say the "Arabization" of Morocco has led to discrimination and has marginalized their people. But the government has resisted calls for recognition of Tamazight as an official language of Morocco

(Algeria:) The Berbers and their language, Tamazight, are ignored and as such do not exist in the eyes of the state.

(Lybia:) The current regime is practicing all kinds of violations, permanence of oppression, and denial. All sorts of Tamazight activities are subject to oppression and denial, including cultural activities. Even Tamazight names for Imazighen children is prohibited and forbidden.

(Morocco:) Berbers demand 'native rights'

Protests are growing in Morocco over the authorities' policy of Arabisation.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The authorities say Arabisation is necessary for the sake of national unity, but the Berbers pay a heavy price for it.
The insistence on using only Arabic in schools leads many Moroccan Berber children to drop out because they cannot understand the lessons. Illiteracy in Morocco is around 56%.

Today, there are substantial Berber populations in both Algeria and Morocco, plus smaller numbers in Mauritania, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt.

In Algeria, about 30% of the population consider themselves Berber. In Morocco the figure is 40%, though many more have Berber ancestry.

Determined efforts to Arabise them have largely failed - as have Berber attempts to win recognition. Some of the official discrimination is unbelievably petty: in Morocco, for instance, parents are not allowed to name a child Jugurtha or Massinissa.

Om niet te spreken over racisme , schending van mensenrechten en zelf slavernij van het zwarte Zuiden door het Arabische Noorden in Sudan. Dit land werd bij haar onafhankelijkheid onmiddelijk een Arabisch - Islamitische staat en dit terwijl de zwarte meerderheid daar volledig tegen was.
