"While Europe was busily engaged in internal strife in the early 17th century, bands of seasoned pirates and soldiers from North Africa launched their ships and set sail under an Islamic flag on a long voyage northwards. Sailing past the coasts of Western Europe, they headed for the Atlantic islands of Ireland, the Faeroe Islands and Iceland. Attacking and pillaging unsuspecting communities, the raiders made off with anything of value, as well as taking prisoners whom they sold into slavery and demanded ransom for their release. Many of the prisoners were converted to Islam, but a fair number would in time regain their freedom and manage with great hardship to find their way back to their homelands"--Container.
