America’s Land Being Divinely CurtailedBy the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad | Last updated: Apr 29, 2013 - 1:10:17 PM
Black Man in America, there is no one as blind as you are in seeing what is going on against America. I have warned you for nearly forty (40) years that Allah (God) in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, came to me and gave me the knowledge of the truth; and I have been preaching it to you continually.
Now you see what is going on. As America has done, so now it is being done unto her. America has surrounded the countries of other peoples. She has blown their cities to pieces and she has killed their inhabitants. Those who were left alive she put to flight, running for shelter from the destruction by America’s might.
It is very sad and horrible to look at the things that America had done, which are now coming on this country. For many years—centuries of years, America has lived a luxurious, wicked life, while hating her Black slaves and depriving them of justice—shooting them down on the streets, on the highways and in the woods and fields, for nothing. She did it just because she felt that she had the advantage; and she wanted to kill Black people, as she was made to do.
Bible Ps. 10:8, “He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are set against the poor.”
Up until this very minute, she is seeking to destroy the Black man in America and to deprive him of the freedom to do for self. America never desires a departure of the Black slave from his white slave-master. America wishes only to hold the Black slave in order to continue to treat him with evil.
Pharaoh’s hatred and injustice to Israel, in Egypt, in the time of Moses, should serve America as a warning; but she has fallen head long into the throes of the destruction of Allah (God).
America runs to and fro seeking a way out, but she does not try to justify her Black slave for justice and equality among the nations of the earth. America made us into nothing and she used us to mock us before the nations of the earth.
But a God with unlimited wisdom, knowledge and power, is now befriending the Black slave and He has chosen the Black slave to be His people. But the foolish Black people have yet to come into that knowledge; that Allah (God) is their best friend and that He is here to save them from the destruction of a people who have shown enmity and hatred to us all of our lives. America divided us one against the other. The Black man in America is so divided against each other that you seek all of the time to do evil against each other.
You can’t even befriend them lest they take advantage of it….
