In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
The thinking of the neo-conservatives is written of in scripture. In
the Book of Revelations 2 and 9, it reads: "I know the blasphemy of
those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of
What is the blasphemy? A Jew is a noble thing. A Jew means one who is
in a covenant relationship with God in obedience to the Divine laws,
statutes and commandments of God. But these people claim to be Jews,
but they're not in obedience to God's law. They have given a mission
of evil a divine look on it, and George W. Bush has swallowed that
baithook, line and sinker.
"Synagogue of Satan" is a gathering of persons of like mind and
spirit who are in opposition to the will of God. So, in the Bible,
Paul said, "We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities and powers and the rulers of the darkness of this
world and spiritual wickedness in high places."
In the peace process, no American president has been able to deliver,
and President Bush is the worst in that line to deliver, because he
is so in line with the thinking of those in opposition to peace.
I warned the President that there were two fronts in this war, one
right here in the United States of America. In order for them to
complete their objectives, there must not be what happened in the
sixtiesa rise of the people in the streets of America. So, they must
silence voices of dissent, silence activists, bring organizations
that would oppose this war into court, call them enemy combatants and
remove from them due process. Thus, the Patriot Act was rushed
through Congress to give power to this country to take away the
rights of the American people.
As Black people, we already understand. We know what America is
capable of doing. The reports that you've seen on television
recently, that show Iraqi soldiers being tortured, stripped naked,
being made to look like they were performing lewd acts on one another
and the rape of Iraqi women by American soldiers; the whole Muslim
world is seeing this and the whole Muslim world is rising in an anger
and a hatred that has never been seen before towards America. Soon,
it will be that no American will be able to travel in the Muslim
world because they will kill Americans in the Arab and Muslim world.
You may not like what I'm saying. You may be angry with me. But I
have a mission and I'm looking to Allah (God) for my protection. I'm
saying to you, beloved brothers and sisters and the people of America
and the people of the world, this time is so dangerous that, if
America does not change course, as a George W. (Washington) brought
America into existence as the first president, a George W. will take
America out of existence and you will witness the ruin of the
greatest nation in the history of the present world.
The Patriot Act deprives us of First Amendment rights. The Patriot
Act deprives us of Fourth, Sixth, Fifteenth and Sixteenth Amendment
guarantees. The soldiers are in the Middle East fighting for "Iraqi
freedom," while the freedom that they thought they had is being
diminished at home.
When Senator John Kerry came back from Vietnam, he was a dissenter.
He could throw away medals; he could stand up and speak against the
war in Vietnam. If these soldiers come back, they will come back to a
different environment. The Patriot Act will silence them.
Did you know that in Iraq, for the last 12 years, the people have
lived under the poison of dirty bombs that have poisoned their water,
air and the land? Now, American soldiers have been in that
environment for over a year, going on two years. When they come home
and diseases begin to afflict them like Agent Orange began to afflict
the Vietnam veterans, will the government of America deny them the
help and support they need?
They're talking about the soldiers that are dead, but at Walter Reed
Hospital there are thousands that have been wounded by this war,
their limbs gone, their faces disfiguredover nothing but the greed
of a few people who have hijacked the government of the United States
An election is coming upthe most serious election in the history of
this nation, because whoever becomes president will have the awesome
responsibility of saving the lives of the American people.
My dear Black brothers and sisters and Hispanic brothers and sisters,
I know that you are Democrats. I know that you want Senator Kerry to
win. You're registering people to vote in unprecedented numbers. But
I say to the Black leadership, don't you herd our people to the polls
before you put before Senator Kerry an agenda that is in the best
interests of the masses of our people. If you betray our people and
the suffering masses that want to be relieved, then your leadership
is finished. This is the last time that you will herd our votes into
the hands of any political leader without having the necessary
strength to put before such a leader those issues that affect our
Senator Kerry, at a recent visit to Howard University, when the
question of reparations was raised, he said "no" to reparations,
because he said it would divide the country and it would not heal the
Congressman John Conyers put before the Congress H.R. 40, a
resolution to simply study the question of reparations and Congress
refuses to even study this questionwhich means to Black people that
the Congress is not interested in justice for us.
Martin Luther King Jr., before he passed from us, said: "I have been
gravely disappointed with the White moderate. I have almost reached
the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in
the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Counselor, or the
Ku Klux Klanner, but the White moderate who is more devoted to order
than to justice, who prefers a negative peace, which is the absence
of tension, to a positive peace, which is the presence of justice."
Senator Kerry appears to be a White moderate who prefers
order: "Don't disturb order by asking for a study of whether Black
people deserve reparations. Let's not go back to the past." Yet,
Americans say, "Remember the Alamo," "Remember Pearl Harbor"
and "Remember the Holocaust," but forget what Black people have
We, the Blacks in America, deserve to be repaired. We are a broken
people and we need to be repaired. How, Senator Kerry, can you heal
the racial divide by sweeping the principle of justice under the rug?
When a husband and a wife have disagreements, if they don't address
the reason for the disagreement, the gap between the two continues to
widen until the division between them is irreconcilable. Therefore,
they have to go before a judge for separation or divorce and then the
court must look at the assets that the wife helped the husband to
accrue and share it with the woman who is seeking relief.
Well, here we are with you. We helped you build this country. We
fought, bled and died to maintain this country. You don't want to see
the horror of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the inhumanity of
what we've suffered.
You say, "But the present generation had nothing to do with it." That
is true. But the present generation of Germans had nothing to do with
what happened to the Jews of yesterday, but they're paying
reparations. It's not about what you did; it's about a responsibility
to correct a wrong that must be corrected.
We were robbed of the knowledge of ourselves. For 300 years, Black
people were reduced to a subhuman level as chattel. We lived under
lynching, segregation, Jim Crow, injustice, police brutality and
racial profiling up to this very moment. Don't we deserve
If you want our vote in this most critical election, I'm warning the
Black leadership, don't sell out your people for that which the
Qur'an says happened to the magicians of Pharaoh: They were promised
wealth and nearness to Pharaoh. A slave may want some money and to be
seen in the halls of power, while justice does not come to the
I have been a faithful Warner to you. I know that the Sanhedrin will
meet after this speech and they will decide what to do with me. You
may do as you please. But if this country is to survive, it must
renounce and repudiate the doctrine of the neo-conservatives and
distance this country from their agenda.
If America is to survive, she must not use the might of America to
fight the battles of Israel and allow herself to be used to destroy
the real or perceived enemies of Israel. I must say, with truth, that
I know this President is bound to the neo-conservative agenda and it
is in their best interest to have President Bush reelected.
So, I am hoping that the neo-conservatives will not contrive some
terrorist activity in Americawhich the government continues to warn
us will happenthat will kill many more Americans in order to
facilitate a political and economic agenda.
I warn you, if you go into this wider war with Syria, Iran, Sudan,
Libya and other members of the Arab and Muslim world or if you plan a
preemptive strike against Cuba, America will fight the War of
Armageddon. It is right at your door. Soon, you'll be fighting in
Asia, in the South Pacific. If China fulfills her word that if Taiwan
seeks independence, China will attack Taiwan, and the neo-
conservatives are saying to the President, "You must uphold your word
to defend Taiwan," then American soldiers will be sent to Asia to
You're drawing away your troops from Eastern Europe. Homeland
security is weak because the National Guard is supposed to protect
the nation, but the National Guard is now in Iraq. The military is
spread out all over the worldwhile this country now has 12 million
undocumented aliens. You want them to give their names. Is it so
that, like ancient Rome, you may use those without any benefit now in
this country to fight for America in order to gain their citizenship?
Will you advance a draft next year to draft American children to
fight and die for neo-conservative aims? If you do, American soldiers
will go away to fight by the tens of thousands, but they will come
back to America by the fives and tensthese are the words of the
Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
America will not win another war. Allah (God) has set His hand
against you. America is a preserved area. No foreign enemy will
destroy this country. This country was allowed to become great and
powerful like the ancient Pharaoh in Egypt, for God Himself to make
Himself known. Please, do not force Allah (God) to destroy you.
How you handle me will determine how long you will live.
Thank you for listening (reading these words). May Allah (God) bless
you as I greet you in peace, As-Salaam Alaikum.
