God is One, Not ISIS

“Say: He is Allah, the One and Only;”
Holy Qur’an, Surah 112:1

“One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
Bible, Ephesians 4:6

In the aftermath of the brutal death of another unarmed Black man, Freddie Gray, in Baltimore, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake reportedly “thanked the Nation of Islam” which “[has] been very present in our efforts to keep calm and peace in our city.”

However, instead of praising the Nation of Islam for bringing peace, a “devil” chose to turn good into evil.

Under the title, “Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Thanks ISIS Advocates (The Nation of Islam) For their Support…” on April 26, 2015, a wicked writer displayed a picture and described it as members of the Nation of Islam (brothers in red bow ties) “giving the extended forefinger salute representing allegiance with ISIS.”

In fact, this picture represents peace, not war, for it demonstrates operational unity among young Black people to bring harmony out of the chaos produced by the Baltimore Police Department. However, as we will demonstrate later, this picture does bring “terror” to the hearts of White supremacists.

The forefinger pointing upward is the sign of the “One God” described in both the Holy Qur’an and Bible—not some secret code among some “terrorist group” called “ISIS,” whose origin is questionable, like so many other U.S., British, and Israeli clandestine operations.

Consider how many pictures we have well-known personalities pointing up with one finger. Are they all “ISIS” sleeper cells as well?

I think not, but let us get to the root of White supremacists’ fear of Black operational unity. On January 24, 1994, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan held a “Men’s Only” meeting at the 369th Street Armory in New York City. At that meeting with thousands of Black men in attendance, the Minister announced his desire to have a million Black men meet him in Washington, D.C. Of course this meeting of Black men did happen on the Washington Mall on October 16, 1995, where nearly 2 million Black men showed up at the largest peaceful demonstration in America’s history.

However, just three days after Minister Farrakhan announced the “Million Man March,” President Bill Clinton announced to the U.S. Congress in his 1994 State of the Union Address that if any member of a “gang” had committed three felonies, then all members of that “gang” would be put in jail—the infamous “three strikes, you’re out” rule. The definition of a “gang” has been up for interpretation, revision and renewal, but understood to basically mean “5 young Black men standing together,” as it was under the Jim Crow laws of the late 1800s and early 1900s in the South.

In 1995 President Clinton introduced legislation that was subsequently made law by Congress in 1996 under the “Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996,” which defined “domestic terrorists” and “domestic terrorism:” “Domestic terrorism involves groups or individuals who are based and operate entirely within the United States and Puerto Rico without foreign direction and whose violent acts are directed at elements of the U.S. Government or population.”

Now let’s move to a study done in 1996 by an on-duty officer of the U.S. Marine Corps, Lieutenant Commander Steven Mack Presley, titled “Rise of Domestic Terrorism and Its Relation to United States Armed Forces.” In his research he defined the United States Department of Justice definition of domestic terrorism as:

“The unlawful use of force or violence, committed by a group(s) of two or more individuals, against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

His research categorized “terrorist incidents” which were “differentiated by the classification of the group claiming responsibility, during the 13-year period 1982 – 1994.” His analysis reported “terrorist incidents” among several groups:

Puerto Rican groups (79 incidents, 44.38 percent of the total); Special Interest groups (38 incidents,                 21.35 percent of the total); Left Wing  groups (23 incidents,    12.92 percent of the total); Jewish Extremist groups (18 incidents, 10.12 percent of the total); Anti-Castro Cuban groups  (12 incidents,                   6.74 percent of the total); and Right Wing groups (8 incidents, 4.49 percent of the total).

Various street organizations, community residents and the F.O.I., men of the Nation of Islam in Baltimore.
Notice that the Nation of Islam is not included and, in fact, the Nation of Islam has never involved itself in any form of violence whatsoever, much less “domestic terrorism.” Lieutenant Commander Presley goes on to capture the perceptions of some of his fellow soldiers in the Marine Corps. To assess the perceptions and attitudes of a group of active-duty, mid-grade Marine officers studying at United States Marine Corps Command and Staff College, Quantico, Virginia, Lieut. Presley asked them to describe groups that they saw as a “perceived threat.” The perceived threats included Drug/Crime Gangs, the Nation of Islam, Moslem Extremists, Citizen-Militias, Aryan Nations (Skinheads), Common-Law Courts, Ku Klux Klan, Other Religious Extremists, Jewish Extremists, and Christian Extremists.

Notice that out of nowhere the Nation of Islam pops up as “perceived threat” number 2. This is interesting because the Nation of Islam participated in no acts of “terrorism,” while “Jewish Extremists” accounted for 10 percent of all “domestic terrorist” incidents, but are listed 7 groups below the Nation of Islam. Hmmm? Furthermore, according to this study, “Moslem Extremists” are listed right behind the Nation of Islam as a “perceived threat,” but were not listed for acts of “domestic terrorism” tracked from 1982 to 1994. Of course, all this changed in 2001 after the U.S./Israeli false-flag operation called “9-11.” For more proof that “9-11” was a false-flag operation read “Solving 9-11” by Christopher Bollyn, “9-11 Brand Terrorism” by Victor Thorn, and many others bold enough to bring the truth.

Lt. Presley’s study on “perceived” threats was done right after the Million Man March in 1995, which was the greatest demonstration of love and unity and peace among Black men witnessed in America. And indeed this “terrorized” White people, just as the present operational unity of young Black men in Baltimore has “terrorized” them once again. All of this fear does not come from any violence demonstrated by protestors in Baltimore: It is a response to Minister Farrakhan announcing in Atlanta, Ga., on April 10, 2015, that we are going back to Washington on the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March to demand “Justice or Else.” “Land of our own” looks like “Justice” for the children of once slaves, according to the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and now Minister Farrakhan. However, it is the “or Else” which for some reason worries White supremacists.

So do not attribute an extended forefinger in the air as representing some secret sign of terrorists. We, as members of the Nation of Islam, don’t believe in purchasing the White man’s carnal weapons to fight with, as does “ISIS.” Just see that extended finger as both Muslims and Christians understand it to mean: “The One God.” However, when you see me pointing that finger in the air on my Facebook page, know that I am pointing to the Mother Plane or Mother Wheel or Ezekiel’s Wheel, which we Muslims in the Nation of Islam believe will go into action to destroy all our enemies if we are attacked.        

This Mother Plane is described by this world as another of those UFOs. You can view one of these UFOs in the video of its appearance at the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem on January 28, 2011. However, if you really want those UFOs properly identified, get the book written by our brother Ilia Rashad, “UFOs And The Nation Of Islam: The Source, Proof, And Reality Of The Wheels.”

So in conclusion, brothers and sisters of America’s ill-affected communities, come and meet with Minister Farrakhan on the Mall in Washington, D.C., on October 10, 2015 and let us demand “Justice or Else” and put the Muslim Program before Congress.
