BY THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN | LAST UPDATED: MAR 7, 2017 – 10:36:53 AM
[Editor’s note: The following article contains additional excerpts from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Saviours’ Day Part 2 address titled “Have No Fear for The Future’: The Future is Ours!” delivered live via webcast from Mosque Maryam in Chicago, Illinois on Sunday, February 26, 2017.]
“And when thy Lord said to the angels, I am going to place a ruler in the earth, they said: Wilt Thou place in it such as make mischief in it and shed blood? And we celebrate Thy praise and extol Thy holiness. He said: Surely I know what you know not.” —The Holy Qur’an, Surah 2, verse 30
“I am going to place a ruler in the Earth that will create mischief and cause the shedding of blood”: In the Bible, in the Book of Genesis, Chapter 32, verses 24-30, Jacob is wrestling with an angel; and when he wrestled with the angel, he threw Jacob’s thigh out of place, and Jacob says, “I have seen God face-to-face; my life has been preserved.” “Jacob” and “Yakub”: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said it is the same. And when Jacob wrestled with the angel, and prevailed, he was given a new name; and that name was Israel. “Israel” is a name that all White people can go up under, because they have prevailed over the darker people of the Earth. …
The White man is a grafted human out of The Original Black man. In the Bible, “Genesis” is 4,004 B.C.: That’s just 6,000 years ago. We have been on the planet for billions and trillions of years, brothers and sisters, before there ever was a thought of a White man. Now, Yakub was not a wicked man, he was a Scientist. According to Gen. 32:29-30, Jacob was on an island called “Peniel”; in the Book of Revelation 1:9, it’s called “Patmos.” But our History says it’s an island in the Aegean Sea called “Pelan.” From this island, where these White people were grafted: They came back into the Holy Land because that is where they left from; so, they were not strangers to the Holy Land, but they had been away from it for 600 years. But then they started making trouble, telling lies, causing the people in the Holy Land to start fighting and killing one another … Like they are doing right now, in Iraq, in Afghanistan—but you’re doing it after the enemy came in.
U.S. government hypocrisy regarding ‘refugees in America’
I heard Fox News host Sean Hannity talking to some Muslims, and he quoted a list of Muslim countries that there was no ban against but just these seven nations: Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sudan and Somalia; but none of them knew how to answer “why those seven.” Those seven nations were a part of the Pentagon’s scheme for “regime change in seven Muslim countries in five years”—so the American government and Congress gave them money to destabilize that area of the world.
Look at all the trouble that’s going on in that area now: All of it started by The Mischief Maker and The Shedder of Blood. So when I was being interviewed by Mr. Alex Jones of Infowars.com (January 2016), I said: “America and your foreign policy created the problem, exacerbated it, in these seven countries. So these people hate America not without reason; you went into their country.” I said, “Yes, it is wise to vet them thoroughly.”
Now, you’re a Muslim—but if somebody upset your house, caused death and destruction in your house and made you a refugee in your house, and you’re running, now, to find a place of refuge, what would you say or do? Should America just say, “Come in!” and not vet them? Do you know how many foreign people have refugee status in America? You never ask about it. I’m going to say this to you, and you can study it: America has bases, 800 of them, in 70 countries on this Earth; and in all of the embassies, there is a desk for the CIA. That’s the spy group of American intelligence; their job is to bring back (information on) the “weakness” and “strength,” especially if America has what she terms “vital interest,” in that country and if the president or the prime minister (of that country) is not one that will allow America unfettered access to their resources. …
Consider this: America has been so wicked: They pay and corrupt the citizens to become agents and assets of America’s foreign policy objectives And when it looks like “the other side” is going to win, and their “assets” are going to be killed, they take them out of there and give them a place in America. How many Vietnamese are here that worked on the side of South Vietnam? When the Viet Cong won, they were there, in Saigon, trying to get on anything they could get to get out of there because they knew death was going to come to them. What did America do? America brought them in. America gave them a place. America gave them a job. But, they’re refugees. Again, not all refugees fit in the category of “assets of American foreign policy.” …
Here is the point: When Mr. Trump was being questioned by Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly (February 4th), Mr. O’Reilly said: “Putin is a murderer, he’s a killer!” Mr. Trump said in response, “There are a lot of killers [out there]. You think our country’s [America] so innocent?” Look at the way they jumped on Mr. Trump (“How could you compare America with Mr. Putin?”) No, America, you’re not as good as Mr. Putin or Russia, because the judgment of God is not on Russia. The judgment of God is on America: You are the most rotten nation on the Earth. That is why God has come, and you are No. 1 on His list to be destroyed.
I want to talk about “terrorism” for a minute, because see, I know these demons want to tie The Nation of Islam, and myself, [to “terrorist activity”]. They say, “He’s a hater of America!” I did hate you at one time, but I understand better—you are wicked as hell. I hate the wickedness that you have practiced, and still practice on my people. But The Qur’an said, “Do not let hatred of a people incite you to act unjustly.”
The men and women of The Nation of Islam: You will never find us blowing up a synagogue. You will never find us harming Jewish people. We know the Satanic Jews; we know the difference between those who are practicing the Torah from those who are buried in the Talmud.
The Muslims are some of the best citizens in this country. We don’t go to prison for robbing and cheating and stealing—we did that when we were so-called Christians. When we got to prison, and found Islam, whether it is “Orthodox” or the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, it transformed our lives. Our Saviour, Master Fard Muhammad, came out of Arabia: We were taught by Elijah Muhammad that we could go anywhere in the Muslim world and be comfortable. We don’t steal, so we’re going to come back with our hands, and we’re not raping any Muslim woman, or no Filipino that works and lives in the Holy Land. We know how to conduct ourselves … Those who don’t the Sharia kills them. Master Fard Muhammad didn’t bring that law to us; He brought a Restrictive Law that makes us a better, more productive human being.
“Yeah, but over there they kill homosexuals and lesbians!” They certainly do. We won’t practice that. “What? Why not?” Some of you have “killing fever”: you kill somebody over your hamburger, some stupid thing. We know that this is chemical, biological science of wicked scientists that are producing tens of hundreds of thousands of effeminate men and masculine women. Through chemistry, biology, neuroscience, this is changing your behavior. My brother, Dr. Wesley Muhammad, wrote a beautiful book entitled “Understanding the Assault on The Black Man, Black Manhood and Black Masculinity”—and I told President Trump I was going to send him a copy. …
You say, “Yeah, but Brother Farrakhan, you know, you shouldn’t say ‘I’.” Why not? I’m not independent of God, but if He gave me a message to deliver to Pharaoh, and told me to “Go”—that both my father and I have an authority—then don’t get upset because I speak with authority because I am backed by Two Men of Power (God and His Christ).
Lessons on Jacob (Yakub) and ‘Israel’
Did you know that when the White folk were grafted and came back to the Holy Land, and started making trouble among the righteous, we drove them out into the hills and cave sides of Europe? You that are Omega, Kappa, Alpha, you that are Masons and Shriners: All of you have to go across “the burning sands.” Yours is a ritual, but White folk had to cross the sands of the desert of Arabia, and we drove them into Europe, so teaches the Honorable Elijah Muhammad from Master Fard Muhammad.
“Europe”: “Eu” means hillsides and caves, and “rope” is the rope to bind in. We sent them there for troublemaking among The Righteous, and took from them everything except the language; they fell down on their all fours, and became savages. But some of the Whites who went through the grafting process, students of Yakub came to being on lying and murder so that lying and murder is a part of the very nature: Some of them remained in the Holy Land (producing offspring with The Original People).
“Lying and murder”: Study what the Holy Qur’an said: “All human beings are made in the nature of Islam except the rebellious devil.” I was with The Messenger one day, and he was teaching on the west side of Chicago; after he taught, we were going back to his home when he said to me, “Brother, you can’t fathom the depth of Satan.” Then he said, “Do you know anybody in whom there is no good at all?” I said, “No.” He said: “There he goes.” It was an old White man walking across the street.
Now wait. Some of you silly ones, you think that’s “hate.” That is because you are unaware of your nature and their nature, and how he has made you into himself so that you are a liar, a murderer, and a thief until you get resurrected from what the White man made you into. Let’s look at this. I said, “He don’t have no good in him at all?”—but I had to study that “at all.” There are many White people who see you walking across the street, and if you are blind, they will come and help you; or, you have an accident in your car, and a White man will come and pull you out. Isn’t that good? Yes. But that is called an “act of kindness.” But the root of “good” comes from that which is in The Nature of God, which is good; that you are righteous by nature, and from your nature you do good all the time out of that nature.
Many White Arabs were upset when The Messenger said the White man is the devil (“Huh? Wait a minute, not us!”) I’d like to show you yourself: You’re not getting away today. The only difference between you and your brother that went into the caves is that he has a cave experience. …
The Bible teaches, “And the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were fair, and took them to be wives.” Race mixing began in the Holy Land, because we threw out all the devils that “we could find”—so there is a suggestion that we didn’t find them all. Some of us liked them, and hid them. … I mean, a law of attraction was working; we’re Black, they’re White. And there is the White woman again (“And the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were fair”), and the next thing you knew was a mixed race was coming up in the Muslim world: Light-skinned Arabs, [along with] Black Arabs.
Yes, The Original Language of The Original People is Arabic. But, there is a Semitic Jew and a Semitic Arab—and they haven’t lived in the Holy Land … .
Now how long have you been there, Black man? Oh well, our Saviour taught us that from the time of Deportation of Moon, 66 trillion years ago: When that part that is now called “Moon” was a part of the Earth, and a Great Explosion took place which shot one part out 12,000 miles, and another part fell 36,000 thousand miles, and the water on that part fell on this part—and that part that was shot out had no water at all, so everything died. But out of evil came good: It was a new planet. We searched for The Best Part, that Civilization of The Original Man would start again; we traveled all over this planet, with its new dimension: 57,255,000 square miles of land, 139,685,000 square miles of water, 24,896 miles of circumference, 7,926 miles in diameter—we know our planet. This is our home, and you can’t stay unless you bow down!
So to my Palestinian brothers: You’ve been there longer than the Ashkenazi Jew, who is a convert to Judaism; but they are severe White racists, and though you are their real brother, they hate you. “I didn’t know we were ‘brothers.’ ” Yes, you went through the grafting process just like they did. Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Jordan, Syria. All of that is The Fertile Crescent; The Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers, that’s where Civilization began. You weren’t even on the planet then. The Root of Civilization is in Mecca—that is Our Home. You can stay there, Palestinians, you know, with permission; because all of that area was Black, and because of your nature you pushed the Black out. I know your history—I’ve been taught by my teacher. And I’m not going to let you get away with deceit and deception, that we are “brothers.” Look at all of the stores of the Palestinians in the Black community: They don’t love you, they don’t have respect for you; they sell you pork, they sell you alcohol, they sell you drugs, they misuse your woman. And some of them are depots for gun sales to young gangbangers. How in the hell can that be my “brother,” making my work harder? I’m not a hater. I’m just telling you the truth … .
To Israel, Bibi (Netanyahu): You’re coming out of there. You don’t have a permanent home there. Your desire is to conquer that whole area lying, saying that “Abraham promised you.” He ain’t promised you a damn thing! … Israel is supposed to be America’s “friend,” “the only democracy in the Middle East.” Lie. Or, as Mr. Trump would say, “Wrong! Wrong!” The Semitic Arabs have been there; they have more claim that that is their home, and you mistreat them with your so-called democracy. Some of you weak Palestinians are going to accept peace terms from Israel? You can’t defend your own territory; you can’t have weapons to defend your territory—Israel must be your defender? What kind of defender do you have if Israel is your defender? You can’t get a Zionist Jew to say that “America is first.” Israel is first. They destroyed the USS Liberty; shot it up and killed 36 or more Americans and a hundred and some-odd were wounded, and the government covered it up. There is a deep state that exists under the elected state.
Those who call themselves “Jews,” who are not really Jews, but are in fact Satan: You should learn to call them by their real name, “Satan”; you are coming face-to-face with Satan, The Arch Deceiver, The Enemy of God and The Enemy of The Righteous. John The Revelator called them “The Synagogue of Satan.”
Are you wondering, “Farrakhan, are you losing it? To speak like this, don’t you realize they will kill you?” That’s what the enemy is talking now (on social media): “Somebody should put a bullet in his head.” I know you’re thinking like that. But Allah and His Christ sit in heaven, and laugh at you … . He is telling you, “You better kiss My anointed, and do My prophets no harm, lest he be angry with you, and call down on you the wrath of his God and The Christ, the two that back him.”
To my Native brothers and sisters at Standing Rock: The enemy has never loved the Native people. His nature is being unveiled and revealed; I’m afraid the masquerade is over, and so is love. … We have loved you (the enemy) foolishly. But the masquerade is over: We’re pulling the cover up off of Satan. The Bible teaches, “That day shall not come except there be a falling away first and the man of sin be revealed.”
Who is the “Man of Sin,” the “Son of Perdition”? He is your 400-year-old enemy, and the leader of them is the Synagogue of Satan. To my Jewish friends (I shouldn’t use the word “friends” so lightly): You have been a great and master deceiver, but God is going to pull the covers all off of you. He had my father, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, here as a dare; and when he left, he left his will. You’re looking for a piece of paper, “My last will and testament”—not my Elijah. There ain’t no “last will” nothing. He put his will in me, and I am speaking his will to you, and to the entire world. Look at the argument The Jews were having with Jesus (Book of John, Chapter 8): “We are Abraham’s seed!” And Jesus said, “If you were Abraham’s seed, you would do the works of Abraham. He was an upright man. He was not of the polytheists.” You bow down and worship things that you make with your own hands. You’re a Satan, right?
A Warning about What Is Coming
Yes, a Saviour was born today (February 26th), Who is 140 years old: He said He would live a minimum of 400 years—and you can’t handle him now at 140. You’ve got to wake up and see what’s coming down the road. Mr. Trump, I know you want to make America great again, that is why they can’t stand you, because you are “draining the swamp.” Washington is a culture of corruption, and no president that you elected has been the sole ruler; there’s a deep state, a Shadow Government that controls the politics of the nation.
So you Democrats, you are losers: You haven’t got anything from them, so come the hell out of them. Let’s form our own political machine; let’s call it the “Justice Or Else Party.” To hell with the Democrats, to hell with the Republicans. They haven’t given you anything but hell; let’s get together and give ourselves a piece of the heaven that God intends for us.
Now let me tell you what you’re going to run into. Elijah Muhammad warned you for 40 years absent his Teacher, and by Allah’s Grace we have continued that Warning in his name. This is my 40th year: You didn’t follow him; and he says in the scripture to his servant, “Well, they won’t believe in you because they didn’t believe in me; so here is the price we have to pay.”
Brothers, sisters, do you think you’re a real American citizen? You really don’t know, do you? The Constitution never was a guarantee for you. I love the way you defend it; it’s such a magnificent document—and nobody defends it better than the slave who it don’t even apply to. You are so exquisite in your defense (“We are Americans, too!”). Well, tell that to Trump. Tell that to the lyncher; tell that to the police when they are killing you for just being Black. Tell them, “I’m an American too!” Do you know in the early dictionaries, the definition of an “American” is one of the six European nations that made up the 13 colonies? Those are the real Americans; it said no aboriginal people included—none. Here (with me) is my Korean family; I have some Chinese family here, some Mexican family: You think you’re an American? Are they treating you like an American? You’ve got to wake up. The moment Trump said what he said, what did they do? They showed up at the home of a Mexican woman who had been reporting (her routine immigration check-in) every year. She was undocumented, but she has lived here over 20 years, had children here, but what did they do? They snatched her up like she was some common criminal, and sent her away.
Standing Rock: You won the battle, but not the war. Trump said, “No,” and signed an executive order (“Put the pipeline down”). Now, we can go back, we can protest—and he’s going to show you what he thought of Indians from “day one.” What did he think of us 500 years ago when he came? He hated you then, and he hates you now, and he will kill you like he did your ancestors. …
And you White-loving Negroes: You that think, “Oh, America is ours!” Yes, it is, but not with them. You say, “Won’t you include us? We’re Americans too! Look at the 13th Amendment: Isn’t that a great amendment? Slavery is over!”—until they arrest you for a blunt in your pocket; and then they send you to prison to work for White folks for nothing, on the 13th Amendment. Didn’t the 14th Amendment make you citizens? Yes. But who enforces it? And the 15th Amendment (“Oh boy, isn’t it great? I mean, we’re citizens!”): But how are you treated? Was it easy to get the loan that you needed for your home? Was it easy to get insurance for yourself and your family? Who makes it easy for you? A real “American,” aren’t you? You’re going to wake up soon, because soon the chastisement of God is coming down on my intellectual brothers who want a place with the White man rather than a place with your own nation with a government with your own. You are the ones that they are going to whip the hell out of in just a short time.
I really don’t give a damn if they come after me. I’m waiting for them—in fact, they’re a little late. I know you think I’m crazy. You’re damn right I’m crazy: I’m crazy over God. I’m crazy over His power to protect me. I’m crazy over the fact that He has laid a table out before me in the presence of my enemy. I’m crazy over the fact that my head is anointed with oil, and my cup is running over … Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives, and we will dwell in the House of our God forever.
Dear Nation of Islam: Thank you, Laborers, for a great Saviours’ Day. Thank you, Margaret Mahdi, for a wonderful tribute to Mother Tynnetta Muhammad. Thank you for all the drill teams that drilled; thank you for all of the sessions that you had on the Nine Ministries, and for all that participated. Thank you for all those that gave to the Saviours’ Day Gift; thank you for those who wanted to give, but didn’t have anything to give. Thank you for being my companions for these 40 years. And I pray that whether I am present or absent, that you will stand for Islam. I don’t think they will be able to kill me. But, if it pleases Allah, I’ve never been more prepared to give my life for this Message that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad left for our salvation.
All of you young men and young women, it’s your time, now: It’s time for you to rise up and take The Nation to another level. It’s not about “talk” anymore. It’s about doing The Work of Building a Nation, starting in the community where we live. … Thank you for all of you that have labored and continue to labor. Remember what the Holy Qur’an says: “If Muhammad dies or is killed, would you turn back on your heels?” Would you turn back on your heels? Forward ever, backward never!
If you worship “Farrakhan”: When Farrakhan is gone, what are you going to do? I’m just your brother, with a Message in my mouth and in my heart from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad for you. But if he calls me up to The Wheel, where he promised me he would allow me to see him face-to-face, then I expect you to be on your post; I expect you to keep the work going; I expect you to love one another even as I have loved you. I have proved it, now you show it to one another.
May Allah bless you all. And, you stay behind those in front (our leadership): If you see them make a mistake, you correct it, but there will be no sin and revolt. And if there are any enemies that think you can take the House: Not any time. …
Thank you for reading these words, as I greet you in peace: As-Salaam Alaikum!
