“Only those accept who listen.” Holy Qur’an 6:36
This article was written immediately after the last one, which was written earlier today (June 13th) and after the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered Part II of The Guide and the Guidance.
Let me explain. I was very enthused. But I was also sad because of the many who partly heard him or didn’t hear him at all. His ending contained a very serious warning and he seemed to be ending a critical series of speeches that began with his Saviours’ Day speech in February. I thought of others who may never hear this critical talk (and those leading to this one.)
Urge all to get and listen to these critical series of speeches of Minister Farrakhan as fast as possible.
After I “finished” both articles, I felt that since they won’t appear, until weeks after today’s speech, Allah willing, they may help some get the tape or others may carefully re-listen to it.
By the way, there’s much talk of Alzheimer’s disease but not much of its connection with aluminum and its relation to the problem of forgetfulness. Why?
In making an excellent point in his speech today, Minister Farrakhan cited an experience I had on an airplane about five or six years ago.
I had another similar experience in a public place about four months ago. I was in a long line of customers. I was reading a book. There was a white woman who was about five customers ahead of me. I noticed that she kept turning her neck around looking in my direction. The line was moving slowly. I kept reading.
Finally, she got out of the line and took a few steps toward me. She asked, “What are you reading?” I turned the book up so that she could see the front cover. Her face began to turn red as a beet. She abruptly turned around and got back in her place in line. She said nothing more to me. I said nothing at all.
The book’s title was Rogue Nation. Between the two words composing the book’s title, is the American flag shaped according to the boundaries of the United States. At the top in much smaller print is: American Unilateralism and the Failure of Good Intentions. At the bottom in small print, with reference to the author, are the words, Author of Trading Places. In somewhat larger words is the author’s name, Clyde Prestowitz.
There is smaller print on the back cover of the book on which was written advance praised for this book. Among the “big” names of those who praise this book and urge others—especially those in power—to read it are: Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Adviser and Peter Sutherland, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, former Director General, World Trade Organization.
On the inside back flap are these words by David Gergen, Director of the Center for Public Leadership, Harvard University, Former White House advisor to presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Clinton. He wrote: “This is a brave book that should be read by all who care about America’s success. A man of impeccable conservative credentials, Clyde Prestowitz directly challenges a new orthodoxy on the right—which the U. S. should aggressively pursue its own interests regardless to what others may think. No one writes with more authority and love of country.” (Emphasis his.)
Three paragraphs down, on the inside flap of its paper cover, are these words: “Rogue Nation is not an argument against American dominance or the exercise of American power. It’s an argument against stupidity, arrogance and ignorance in the exercise of power.”
Even though I had only read the words of a few others, as mentioned above, the publisher’s words on the inside cover flaps and a few pages of his book, it was clear to me that Clyde Prestowitz is an above average intelligent “conservative” white man, who loves America and is doing what he can to warn her.
I don’t know if Prestowitz is among the growing number of Caucasians who know, to an above average degree, the extraordinary value of Minister Farrakhan’s advice to President Bush. Many have known that the Minister is right, but fear to say this publicly, due to fear of being caught up in the most massive disinformation ever waged in history. But an increasing number of Caucasians are publicly agreeing with him—directly and indirectly. Blacks are witnessing this.
David Gergen characterized this book as “a brave book” and that its author “directly challenges a new orthodoxy on the right?” (Emphasis his.)
“Brave” in part, means: “having or showing courage, especially when facing danger, difficulty, or pain; to face the onslaught of something unpleasant with courage and resolution.”
Who did Mr. Prestowitz identify as the “new orthodoxy on the right” whose presence, work and power is such that they should be challenged and that to do so, bravery is required? Rather than assume, I stopped typing and read beyond page seven (where I had stopped reading) of Mr. Prestowitz’s book.
On page 277, for instance, he points out clearly that the “new orthodoxy on the right” whom he challenged are, broadly speaking, the same group whom Minister Farrakhan has “called out.” But there are significant differences in their knowledge.
On this critical and complicated subject, Mr. Prestowitz’s knowledge is wide-ranging and comprehensive. He wrote that he interviewed many, read widely and has had broad experience. His solutions, however, won’t solve America’s problems. He did not deal with the root cause of America’s problems—the position and condition of America’s Black people.
Minister Farrakhan’s knowledge, on this same complex subject, is divine. Furthermore, he unfailingly makes clear and unhesitatingly states that the source of his special knowledge is his teacher, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He knows the solution to America’s problems.
The context of Mr. Gergen’s use of the word “brave” reminds me of Minister Farrakhan’s bravery or courage, in the face of his being the target of the greatest and the most massive and sustained disinformation campaign ever launched against any one Black man in America’s history–or anywhere–which thoroughly involves the most powerful government of the past 6,000 years. This year marks the nineteenth consecutive year of a major aspect of this campaign against Minister Farrakhan.
Of course, this campaign is part of the same that has been directed against the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam since the early 1930s—from within and without.
What makes this the greatest disinformation campaign ever is that it’s knowingly designed to defeat the aims and purposes of the Supreme Being. Not all involved in it, however, are aware of its full scope, not to think of its ultimate defeat and destruction.
Of this evil campaign, the Holy Qur’an states “They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will allow nothing save the perfection of His light … .” ( 9:32)
Now, what do the following words mean? “… Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40: 8)
How was God’s law written “within” his heart? When? Who is speaking here? How do you know? If you have an answer, how do you verify it?
More next issue, Allah willing.
