God versus Satan
Farrakhan exposes devilish plots targeting Mr. Obama, America, the world and the Nation—and why evil doers cannot triumph

CHICAGO - In what was one of the most anticipated Saviours’ Day lectures ever, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan kept the capacity crowd spellbound for over four hours delivering analysis and insight into the pressing issues facing the world today.

Entering the United Center arena, Minister Farrakhan was welcomed by a thunderous standing applause lasting for several minutes and loud chants of “Long live Muhammad! Long live Muhammad!”

“There’s a degree of danger attached to telling the truth to those who have been deceived by lies and falsehood. There’s a degree of danger that every prophet had to meet in a world ruled by Satan, but the prophets never shrank from their duties to deliver the message,” said Minister Farrakhan. “For 44 years, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad never ever took a back step in delivering the message that he received from the great Mahdi Master Fard Muhammad, and being a follower of his, I can’t take a back step in delivering the message, and I seek Allah’s protection in delivering that message,” he added.

Each year, the Nation of Islam gathers to celebrate the birth of Master Fard Muhammad born in the Holy city of Mecca, Arabia, February 26, 1877. He made himself known on July 4, 1930. His father was a Black man and his mother, a woman from the Caucasus region of Europe.

“We’ve come to honor a man that most of the world does not know,” said the Minister. “We, the members of the Nation of Islam, are witnesses of Him. Though he came not just for us alone. The real truth is that we were to be the illuminating reflection and proof that we have had a visitation from God, because of the transformation that his word has brought about in our lives through his Messiah, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad,” he added.

Delusions about an American comeback


'America’s debt is over $15 trillion and with other obligations such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the debt really falls between $70 and $80 trillion. In fact, the debt could be higher than all the land, resources, structures, industries, and all they produce. Federal and state governments are selling buildings and lands to private owners while bridges, toll roads and sea ports are being sold off.'
The Minister said he did not wish to be on the opposite side of President Barack Obama, however, he took issue with Mr. Obama’s words on Jan. 24 during his State of the Union address when he said: “America is back, and anyone who tells you that America is in decline or that our influence has wanted doesn’t know what they are talking about.”

“I want to say to my dear brother, that what you are saying is that you and your administration have the power to make God’s prophets liars. It is not that we alone are saying that America is in decline, the prophets of God have said it, prophesied of it, and the world is now seeing it,” he said.

For President Obama to act as though this is not happening is delusion and prevents him from telling the truth to the American people to unite them in an effort to solve the problems of the nation, said the Minister.

America is not only in a decline, said the Minister, but in a “great and steady fall from which she does not seem to have the ability to stop” with only a very small window of opportunity to save herself from God’s wrath.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad warned Black people and America of what was to come decades ago, the Minister said.

America’s debt is over $15 trillion and with other obligations such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the debt really falls between $70 and $80 trillion. In fact, the debt could be higher than all the land, resources, structures, industries, and all they produce. Federal and state governments are selling buildings and lands to private owners while bridges, toll roads and sea ports are being sold off. In addition, 2011 was the costliest year in history in terms of weather related disasters. Europe has experienced record-breaking cold and enormous amounts of snow, and there was even been snow reported in parts of Northern Africa.

“But you have not seen anything yet,” said the Minister. “This year, it will be worse. God is not going to let up on America or the world.”

A deadly political atmosphere

'This “avalanche of hatred” is creating a dangerous climate for President Obama and the members of his family, and could lead to a situation in which he could be assassinated.'

Minister Farrakhan then switched to the political environment within America. He told those gathered it has deteriorated like the weather, and methodically showed examples in which influential people in the political arena are hurling insults at President Obama and his family. This “avalanche of hatred” is creating a dangerous climate for President Obama and the members of his family, and could lead to a situation in which he could be assassinated.

“Not just by the birthers and right wing zealots, but those in high places—people with great influence—have spoken against him in a manner that has never been accorded to even the worst of America’s White presidents.”

President Obama has been called “a racist, an anti-Semite, a socialist, a communist, a foreigner, an alien and a terrorist.”

There have also been caricatures depicting the president as a witch doctor, Adolph Hitler and in Jerusalem, there was a poster showing him with an Arab kaffiyeh on his head calling him an “anti-Semitic Jew hater.”

Minister Farrakhan showed several examples of such comments, by GOP Republican candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, millionaire Donald Trump, leading Jewish congressional representative Eric Cantor (R-Va.), prominent Jewish congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R- Fla.) and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). He also referenced two new books dealing with those behind the disgraceful attacks on Mr. Obama and his family, “The Obama Hate Machine” and “The New Hate.” 

The crowd responded and moaned when the Minister read the text of the reprehensible e-mail sent by Republican Kansas Speaker of the State House Mike O’Neal in which he invoked portions of Psalm 109:8, which says in part, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office” and “May his children be orphans and his wife a widow.”

“You would think this is from senseless stupid, uniformed, ignorant White folk, but this is from the group that has been voted into political power,” exclaimed the Minister.

Many of them have also called Mr. Obama “arrogant” and “angry.” In fact, even former president Bill Clinton, husband of current Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, made comments implying that Mr. Obama was out of his place.

“All you have to do to be arrogant is just stand your ground,” said Min. Farrakhan. “All you have to do to be called angry is to say ‘I disagree.’ See they have a slave master mentality, and they don’t recognize that slavery is over baby and you’re going to have to get used to Black people angry, peaceful, beautiful, however we present ourselves to you, you are going to have to accept it or deal with it!”

The Minister rebuked White politicians who expressed unhappiness that Blacks voted for Mr. Obama primarily because he was Black.

“To hell with you, if we want to vote for a brother because he’s Black, that’s our business! We’ve been voting for you for as long as we’ve had the privilege to vote, it’s an honor for us to vote for one of our own kind!”

Minister Farrakhan pointed out despite Mr. Obama’s constant reassurances that he is a Christian, many still think he is a Muslim.

“Well, Mr. President, you might as well as well come on and join us then! You really would get something done then,” said Min. Farrakhan as the crowd cheered showing its approval.

Assassination plans against the president?

The Minister said when President Obama was elected, there was hope that because of his brush with Islam during his childhood in Indonesia, America’s relationship with the Muslim world could be improved, however since he has taken office, this has not happened. Mr. Obama does not recognize Satan and influential Zionists throughout America’s corrupt political system have “hamstrung” him preventing him from doing some of the things he promised to do, moving him in another direction.

After being pressured by the neo-cons, the warmongers, and the Zionists, the president signed the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, but he expressed serious reservations about clauses regarding detention of American citizens.

“The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it. In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists,” said President Obama in a statement.

When he wrote that, “it was like signing his death warrant,” said Min. Farrakhan. It also was similar to Pontius Pilate absolving himself of responsibility from those who would go after an innocent man, Jesus.

Despite Mr. Obama pledging fealty to Israel during a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) making the security of Israel a top priority, and increasing military financing to record levels, he cannot seem to get their support.

“It’s hard to get him to a Black affair to say kind words and encourage us in our struggle, but he went to AIPAC like the rest of them, on their knees groveling to the Zionists,” said the Minister.

Recently, a Jewish publisher Andrew Adler, suggested giving the “go-ahead for U.S. based Mossad agents to take out” President Obama. He was condemned by Jewish leaders for his comments in the article, however, there may be more to this than meets the eye.

“Is it that Andrew Adler made a horrific statement, or is it that he exposed the plot to early?” the Minister asked. “Adler made another point that no one is addressing. What is the Israeli Mossad doing based inside America? This tells me that the synagogue of Satan is at work.”

Referring to the Book of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 where it refers to the synagogue of Satan, as well as the Holy Qur’an which makes a distinction between those striving to do right, and those who do evil in the name of religion.

“There are members of the Jewish faith that are striving to live the life that Moses and the Israelite prophets taught. There are members of the Jewish faith that hold the principles and the teachings of the prophets dear to them.

“They have to be separated from those who say they are Jews and are not but are the synagogue of Satan,” said the Minister. “Now here’s my challenge to the Jewish people. You want good Muslims to condemn bad Muslims, you want good Christians to condemn bad Christians, you want good Negros to condemn those that you say are bad, well what about you? What about this synagogue of Satan that say they are Jews and are not? When are you going to rise up and put them down and make them know that you are not of them!”

“If an atmosphere is being created of hatred for Obama what is the next step?” the Minister asked. “Even if we’re disappointed, we don’t want to see any harm come to him.”

The New York magazine
'It’s hard to get him to a Black affair to say kind words and encourage us in our struggle, but he went to AIPAC like the rest of them, on their knees groveling to the Zionists.'
At first, members of the Jewish community were very close with Mr. Obama, the New York magazine even had a cover with a photo of the president wearing a yarmulke titled “The First Jewish President.” He placed many Jewish people in the most powerful positions in his administration. In fact, according to Min. Farrakhan, 80 percent of the members of his administration are Jewish. The list of concessions the president has made for Israel is long.

“How can he be an enemy of Jews? What is it that you expect from him that he is not doing that makes you now use your media to create an avalanche of hatred against the president?” Min. Farrakhan asked. “No matter what President Obama has said or done to show Israel his commitment, somehow or another he’s failing in some important aspect of what they desire him to do.”

The Minister said President Obama may win a second term, primarily because of the weakness of the GOP field, however, it is clear that the job is taking a lot out of him. At one point, the Minister juxtaposed a picture of President Obama’s presidential idol, Abraham Lincoln, showing how much he aged during his presidency. He then showed how Mr. Obama has aged significantly during his term.

America is terribly divided and there are high levels of dissatisfaction within the American electorate. Gun sales are exploding. The atmosphere is similar to how it was during Abraham Lincoln’s presidency, he said.

Osama and the Arab Spring

The Minister talked about the killing of Osama bin Laden, for which President Obama claimed credit, and the strange story surrounding the military operation.

“Osama bin Laden was caught unarmed with his family around him,” said the Minister. “They could have gotten him, secured him, taken him out of Abbottabad, Pakistan, and brought him to a place where he could have been interrogated about 9/11 and other alleged terrorist operations.”

The U.S. government could have displayed him like a trophy after a victory, noted Min. Farrakhan. Instead, they killed him, took his body, allegedly oiled him, said the janazah (funeral) prayer, and then dumped his body in the ocean, he continued.

“Why didn’t you interrogate him? Could it be that to kill him on the spot, meant that he was really not wanted alive, because maybe much of what you charged him with, you would never be able to prove in a military court or in a court of law? Could it be that the 3,000 that died at the World Trade Center were not killed by Osama bin Laden or Muslims at all? Could it be that it was used by our government—a false flag operation—to begin to deprive the American people of what is guaranteed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?”

“See, you can’t even wrap your mind around the thought that our government could have done something like that—kill 3,000—mainly Americans to get political advantage? You can’t wrap your mind around that because it’s impossible for you to think like Satan!”

Minister Farrakhan then described a “shadow government” in the United States led by neo-conservatives.

He went on to discuss the “Arab Spring,” which is turning into a “harsh Arab winter” for America as Islamist political parties achieve dominance in the region. Furthermore, the uprising did not start in the Muslim world, said Min. Farrakhan. It began from plans in the United States to take over the Middle East and its natural resources by those same neo-conservative architects of the Iraq war, he explained.

Documents have surfaced showing neo-cons formulated “The Greater Middle East Project” which was a plan to take over seven Muslim countries in five years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. 

“Now you can take it or let it alone, but you’ll never be able to say that Farrakhan knew the truth and was too cowardly to tell it even at the cost of my own life!”

AFRICOM is another part of this geo-political struggle, said the Minister. The weapon used in Africa is food, and the plans are to hasten depopulation of the continent, he warned. AIDS is also ravaging the African continent and this plan goes back to the mid-70s, said Min. Farrakhan.

China and Russia have been working in Africa with government leaders involved in an actual business war with America. This is the reason Col. Muammar Gadhafi had to be killed, Min. Farrakhan said. When NATO started bombing Libya, Col. Gadhafi cut off oil to Europe but not China and Russia.

They had to kill him. It’s warfare and anybody that gets in the way has to be dealt with. Today, I’m putting myself in your way,” Minister Farrakhan said as the crowd roared. “I want you to come and deal with me so that my God can show you that I’m not standing by myself!”

In 1974, Henry Kissinger, at the time secretary of state under President Nixon, signed National Security Study Memorandum 200 titled “Implications of World Wide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interest.” It was adopted in 1975 as policy by President Gerald Ford.

Those who analyzed the document said Mr. Kissinger argued “depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World,” the Minister said.

“Africa, listen to your brother from America! Your leaders aren’t worth your love! That’s why Muammar Gadhafi told the people, ‘listen to Louis Farrakhan, he will tell you what is going on!’ ” the Minister said.

Many African nations welcome Western doctors into their lands, however, they are vaccinating the children, possibly with diseases and viruses. In America, genetically modified foods and dangerous levels of radiation victimize people, primarily because the people can’t believe there are diabolical scientists who plan their demise.

“In order for America to remain a power in the 21st century, she must have access to strategic metals and minerals that are found in Russia and in Africa, especially Central Africa,” he said. “You that can’t wrap your mind around Satan, I’m going to bring him to you today and put him in your lap! And if you’re too cowardly to look at Satan and deal with Satan as Satan is then you don’t have long to live on this planet, because Satan’s day is up! He’s going down and I represent the power that’s here to take him down!”

No to war on Iran

President Obama is being pushed to start a war with Iran and “quietly, they are pushing him to destroy Farrakhan,” the Minister said.

In its modern history, Iran has never attacked another country, in fact, the only nation to ever use nuclear weapons against another nation is America, he said.

The Minister then ran down Israel’s warmongering at neighboring states. Israel has nearly 300 nuclear weapons and are not signers of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

“If America goes to war with Iran, all the young people in the Nation, you do not fight in America’s wars against another Muslim country. We are all conscientious objectors,” said Min. Farrakhan. “I advise White and Black America, Hispanic and Asian America, why would you send your children to die for war engineered by Zionists who love Israel more than they love the United States of America?”

The divine teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad

When looking at the students of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, a man who never made it to the fourth grade, there is a pattern of men who impacted the world, observed Min. Farrakhan. Who were Mr. Muhammad’s students and what was their education? Malcolm X only went to the eighth grade and confounded scientists with what he learned. Cassius Clay, now known as Muhammad Ali, was a high school graduate and the late Imam W.D. Mohammed never went to college. Minister Farrakhan only finished three years of college. This is a testament to the wisdom delivered from Master Fard Muhammad to and through the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, which included separation, the Minister said.

Mr. Muhammad launched a Three-Year Economic Savings Plan, which the Minister said he would discuss at Mosque Maryam March 3.

“There’s a prophecy in the Bible, ‘your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand,’ ” said the Minister. “Black man and woman, God wants to save you from the doom of this world—particularly America—but you are holding on to your 400-year-old enemy as though he has all of a sudden become your friend. What makes you like that?”

“I’m warning you, (former Secretary of Defense Donald) Rumsfeld and (former Vice President Dick) Cheney, I’m calling your names! Wolfowitz, Perle, Krauthammer, all of you neo-cons! If you harm our brother, we will break our agreement with you, and our agreement with hell will be broken and our covenant with a Pale Horse, will be annulled and then, I’ll be able to call you to build a nation of our own. You look like a fool standing around begging somebody else when we have become a nation within a nation!” said the Minister.
