CHICAGO (Mosque Maryam) - Speaking from the Nation of Islam’s international headquarters, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan recently delivered Part 2 of his electrifying keynote address titled “The Intensifying Universal Cry for Justice.”

He picked up March 1 where he left off the previous Sunday, explaining how justice is God’s weapon against the wicked in the Day of Judgment. Many mistakenly believe the Day of Judgment is a long way off—but we are living in the Day of Judgment now, Min. Farrakhan stressed.

“The grace that came yesterday is not here today because in the Day of Judgment, you should expect what you put out, and the only thing between us and the consequences of our actions is the grace and power of God to delay the punishment or avert the punishment,” he said.

We have arrived at the time of the end of warnings, and as dissatisfaction increases, and the global cry for justice intensifies, calamities are intensifying as well, the Minister added.

The term “terrorist” is seemingly everywhere, in movies, on the news and in almost all political discourse, he noted. There are references in the Holy Qur’an and the Bible in which God terrorizes those who have done evil, the Minister said.

“We live in a time of terror. Everybody White people don’t like is a terrorist,” said Min. Farrakhan. “Is everyone a terrorist? Why are you so terrified?”

The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation of Islam, wrote Whites have been global peace breakers for the last 6,000 years, destroying the lives of 600 million members of the Black nation since White rule started on the planet.

“When a man has done that kind of evil,” said the Minister, “they are long gone and dead, but they’ve produced offspring, and it doesn’t seem like the offspring are better than those that did the evil because the children are doing the same things as their fathers.”

So the scriptures say, “Prepare slaughter for the children for the iniquities of their fathers,” he noted.

“What terrorizes (Whites) is the presence of God and a messenger from God that signals the end of their civilization,” said Min. Farrakhan.

False Zionist ‘friendship’

Min. Farrakhan described the area known as the Middle East as a “hotbed of madness” and spent considerable time analyzing the region’s geopolitical realities. Noting that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to speak to the U.S. Congress March 3, the Minister showed how the Zionist leader’s presence is highly disrespectful, with GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner inviting Mr. Netanyahu to speak without any conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama. The Republicans and other racist Whites have insulted and disrespected President Obama for the entire time of his presidential term. This is only the latest incident in which his authority has been challenged, the Minister noted.

“Here is a man coming in your house, you are the head of the house, and somebody in the house invites you into the house and you sneak in the back door and don’t even greet the head of the house and ask his permission,” said Minister Farrakhan.

Jewish attorney Alan Dershowitz had sharp criticism for Democrats who refused to show up for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 speech to the U.S. Congress.

Israel is not really America’s friend though the world is always told Israel is America’s closest ally in the region, he continued. America does all it can to deliver financial, military and technological support to this tiny nation.

“They are not now, nor have they ever been true friends of America or the American people who have been their support for nearly 70 years,” the Minister said.

Zionists have been working for decades to control America’s political representatives, he said. That is the only way they can continue to do what they are doing without any fear of retribution, Min. Farrakhan explained.

“Those of you who doubt me and want to call me an anti-Semite—prove what I am saying that is false, and you can have my life!” the Minister declared. “Which one of you are going to put your life up if you want to take mine?”

Minister Farrakhan referenced the march by the “criminal” world leaders in Paris shortly after the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in January of this year.
Many American politicians are saying Israel’s relationship with the United States should be reexamined and a growing segment of America feels the same. Israel wants America to lead a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran. President Obama has engaged in diplomatic discussion with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani to avoid conflict and that has Zionist warmongers angry.

Israel has continued ratcheting up tensions and the “Israel first” lobby continues to flex its muscle in relationship to the American government. The Minister cited several examples that show Israel is no friend of America:

Jonathan Pollard, a Jewish former intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy, pleaded guilty after being charged with transferring military secrets to Israel while working at the Pentagon. He is serving a life sentence in a U.S. federal prison, however Zionist mobilization is heavily pressuring President Obama for clemency and Mr. Pollard’s release.

In 1967, Israel launched an unprovoked attack on an American Naval ship, the USS Liberty, which resulted in the deaths of 34 Americans and the wounding of another 171 and evidence suggests Israelis knew they were assaulting an American vessel.

The 1964 Esquire Magazine political cartoon appearing to show former French president Charles de Gaulle identifying the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as the one preventing White people from achieving their goals for a glorious future.

Israel refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and refuses to acknowledge having nuclear weapons while maintaining an atomic plant in the desert city of Dimona.

In a striking revelation, the Minister cited Daniel Halper’s book “Clinton Incorporated: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine Revealed” as additional proof of Jewish false friendship with the United States. Mr. Halper writes that Israel placed wiretaps on the phone lines of the White House and recorded former President Bill Clinton and intern Monica Lewinsky having phone sex.

A real friend would not steal from nor blackmail another friend, the Minister said.

“That’s why they don’t fear America, because they control it from within!” Min. Farrakhan said.

He then spoke about the events surrounding the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon. The group Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911T) are at the forefront of the movement to thoroughly challenge the established version of events surrounding attacks on the World Trade Center September 11, 2001. The Nation of Islam hosted members of AE911T for a huge forum during Saviours’ Day 2012. With each passing day, more are summoning the courage to call for an independent investigation, which could implicate America’s own government and, according to 9/11 researchers like Christopher Bollyn and Victor Thorn, Israel is also directly implicated.

“Why won’t America investigate what these scientists and scholars have uncovered about 9/11 and who was really behind it?” the Minister asked. Israelis were found dressed as Arabs videotaping the destruction of the twin towers, which were struck by planes, some Jews received text messages saying do not go to work at the trade center and Jewish real estate magnate Larry Silverstein profited billions of dollars from insurance policies related to the tragedy, in particular because of terms related to terrorist attacks, said the Minister.

Ending police brutality

On the inside of the back page of Muhammad Speaks newspaper and now the inside back page of The Final Call, under the section titled, “What The Muslims Want” Point Number 6 reads:

“We want an immediate end to the police brutality and mob attacks against the so-called Negro throughout the United States. We believe that the Federal government should intercede to see that black men and women tried in white courts receive justice in accordance with the laws of the land–or allow us to build a new nation for ourselves, dedicated to justice, freedom, and liberty.”

Referencing the deaths of Kendrick Johnson in Georgia; Eric Garner in New York; Trayvon Martin in Florida; Mike Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, the Minister said Whites have done evil to Blacks for a long period of time and many Blacks are angry and bitter because it appears as if Whites have gotten away with it. Whites have not gotten away because justice never sleeps, said Minister Farrakhan. And, he said, there is a Law of Retaliation written of in the Holy Qur’an.

He also read his striking words contained in a 2001 letter he wrote to George W. Bush reminding the U.S. president of America’s critical position as a “unipolar power over all the nations of the Earth.” If proper action is not taken, the Minister warned, instead of finding mercy, America will find herself targeted by the destructive power of the Will of God.

The Minister also wrote a letter to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in 2010 warning them of things to come, many of which have come to pass.

“What they have sent forth into our lives is coming back to them and this is the time that they should reap what they have sown,” said Min. Farrakhan. “I intend to live and to save you by the grace of Allah from the wrath of the enemy!”

Police are attacking Black people across the country and the U.S. Department of Justice seems too weak to intercede on behalf of those killed by law enforcement. Government should be on the side of the people to establish justice, but when law enforcement officers kill Black people and no justice is delivered, a new approach is needed, he said. Blacks have a right to protect themselves against unjustified attacks, the Minister said.

He delivered a clarion call to Black men who are in the U.S. Armed Forces. “If the government cannot protect our lives … why are you in the armed forces fighting for a democracy that you don’t have at home?” asked Min. Farrakhan.

“Why are you in the armed forces of America going overseas to fight someone that never did a thing to you then act pitifully when your own people are shot down in front of you?”

“I’m calling on all of the soldiers that fight for America, come home and let’s unite and fight for our lives since the federal government refuses to fight for us. We must fight for ourselves!”

‘An act of unparalleled love’

All in attendance at Mosque Maryam gave Sister Nadirah Muhammad a standing ovation for her selfless act in donating one of her kidneys to Aja Booth, one of her students who was in need. Min. Farrakhan assigned Final Call Assistant Editor Ashahed M. Muhammad to interview Sister Nadirah. The Minister said her actions were an example of Muslim and Christian cooperation at a time when globally, people are fighting and killing each other over differing religious beliefs.

As news articles and media reports are replete with stories of people across the globe targeted and killed because of their religious beliefs and groups like ISIS killing Christians, Min. Farrakhan used a selfless act of a Muslim sister to demonstrate true principles that should be exhibited by Believers in God. The Nation also does not follow the old world of what is called Al-Islam, he added. (See video)

“You think that we kill Christians?” asked the Minister. “We love our Christian family. That’s our momma, our daddy, our sister, our auntie, our uncle, our cousin, our classmates, our teammates. Did you know Prophet Muhammad never killed Christians just because they were Christians? He never killed Jews because they were Jews,” the Minister said.

He called Nadirah Muhammad to the stage and used her as an example of what Muslim love for Christians truly is. Nadirah Muhammad is the daughter of Abdullah Muhammad and Sister Captain Emeritus Karriemah Muhammad, who now reside in Atlanta. Sister Karriemah assists Mother Khadijah Farrakhan.

Nadirah Muhammad is a physical education teacher and heath instructor at Westside Academy High School in Detroit. She decided to donate a kidney to one of her students, 18-year-old Aja Booth.

The teenager had been on dialysis treatment for four years and had been waiting for a suitable donor kidney for a year. While her student is still in recovery after receiving the kidney and having an additional appendectomy, Nadirah Muhammad said young Aja is doing well, and due back to school in March.

“I am able to resume all activities, and I just started back to exercising two weeks ago. I’m back into my normal routine and I feel great!” Nadira Muhammad told The Final Call.

She admitted it was a little overwhelming with the focus turned to her March 1 at Mosque Maryam as the Minister called her out the audience and saluted her sacrifice. He called her kidney donation “an act of unparalleled love” for her Christian sister. The young woman’s church also honored Nadirah Muhammad for her wonderful gift, Min. Farrakhan added.

Over 2,000 people gave Nadirah Muhammad a standing ovation in honor of her noble and courageous act.

“To be honest, I felt humbled, blessed but also so nervous! I felt very honored to be on stage with our leader and teacher, Minister Farrakhan,” Nadirah Muhammad said. “The magnitude of what I did, I still can’t really wrap my head around it because to me, it is not a big thing, in my eyes. If it was my son, or another family member, I would want somebody to help. What I did was a humanitarian gesture that someone should do if they are able to do it. So the accolades and the adulation, I appreciate it, but I don’t feel worthy of all of it, because it is a normal everyday thing that people should do, if they can do it,” said the modest Muslim woman. (Additional coverage of Nadirah Muhammad’s selfless act will be covered in future edition of The Final Call.)

A powerful, inspiring message

Student Minister Hilary Muhammad, United Kingdom representative of the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan traveled all the way from London, to hear directly from Min. Farrakhan. “I thank Allah (God) that he is making it clearer to the world that his servant, born and raised in North America, is indeed his khalifah and one whom if humanity, alongside the Muslim community would recognize the guidance that Allah (God) is putting in his mouth and in his mind for us, the world would indeed be a better place, it would be the kingdom of God,” he said.

Archivist Carlos Muhammad, Baltimore representative of the Nation of Islam, called the message “awesome” and right guidance for the time. The Minister “covered all of the things that are relevant in the world as it relates to us and our struggle, as well as giving us the history lessons that we need to study so that we won’t make the same mistakes in the present and in the future,” said Carlos Muhammad.

Student Minister Patrick Muhammad is the Seventh Region representative of the Nation of Islam. Based in Miami, Fla., the region is made up of mosques and study groups throughout Florida, the Caribbean, Central and South America. He was moved as the Minister said he wanted the Nation of Islam student ministers working every day in the community.

“This is a declaration for us in the Nation of Islam and in our communities that there just comes a time that there are certain things we can no longer tolerate,” said Patrick Muhammad. “It starts with self and I have to make all of the necessary changes within myself. This is divine guidance that we’ve received today,” he said.
