(FinalCall.com) – The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered analysis of national and international affairs in light of history, scripture, and prophecy for the radio listeners and those tuning in nationwide via internet in an interview with Robert Muhammad, host of “Connect the Dots” radio show on 90.1 KPFT FM in Houston Nov. 23.
There were no technical disruptions, no commercial interruptions and Mr. Muhammad’s questions were clear and concise as the Minister delivered guidance dealing with pressing economic, political, and social ills plaguing the country through answers rooted in the teachings of the eternal leader of the Nation of Islam, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
Robert Muhammad, who is also Nation of Islam Southwest student regional minister leading Muhammad Mosque No. 45 in Houston, asked about the Minister’s recent return to college campuses, specifically, his Nov. 9 appearance at Prairie View A&M University and messages delivered earlier this year at Jackson State University and Howard University.
“I have always been on college campuses now affecting almost three or four generations of our people, but in the last 10 or so years, it has been taboo for Louis Farrakhan to be on college campuses, particularly the college campuses of our Black students,” said the Minister. “This is because those forces that have seen me as anti-Semitic or anti-White or racist or however they wish to describe me–feel that it is not in their best interests that I speak to Black students, but thanks be to Allah, this past year, with Nation of Islam Student Associations on these campuses, the students have invited me and their professors and their chancellors and school presidents have agreed that I should come and I am so very grateful for the opportunity to talk to our young people.”
Mr. Muhammad asked the Minister about America’s economic plight, and its often rancorous and contentious political discourse.
“In the Book of Daniel it talks about a time of trouble like there never was since there was a time and a nation. We have arrived at that time when of course, the leadership of the world –particularly in America–there’s so much confusion that they can’t agree, even though the country is in such economic trouble,” said Min. Farrakhan.
The Minister said the confusion of the political leaders is a “sign of the end of this particular world and system of things.”
“If democracy is to survive, partisan politics must die, and as you are witnessing, partisan politics is killing democracy and killing the United States of America as a world power,” he continued. “This is the end of this present world and its power and authority to mis-teach, mislead and misgovern the people. This is over with! God is coming to take the rule of the nations and the people to himself.”
Referring to the recently released book “Defending Farrakhan,” Mr. Muhammad asked if there had been any response to Minister Farrakhan’s June 2010 letter to Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. The letter was sent not only to Mr. Foxman but also to the leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish American Organizations, all levels of the U.S. government, Black religious leaders, professors, and media personalities, many of whom have known of this battle with members of the Jewish community for decades.
One recipient was Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright, and the Minister told the listeners some of the feedback he got from Rev. Wright once he read the letter.
“When he (Rev. Wright) read the contents of the letter, in the letter was a threat, and when he read the threat he said ‘well, there goes the dialogue.’ I said to my brother, when God sends His messenger to give a message to the people, in the message is a warning and an implied threat, and even an overt threat,” the Minister stated forthrightly.
“I warned Mr. Foxman that there’s an opportunity for us to sit down together and discuss a way forward in spite of the history of the Jews selling Blacks, the Jews enslaving Blacks, the Jews becoming rich on the backs of Blacks. That’s what was. Now we can continue to live the pain of yesterday or, since we are alive today and the Jews are alive today and they are in a great position of wealth, power and influence, and we as a result of what has happened to us are in a very weakened position, if they wish to find the favor of God in this hour when every man must reap what he has sown, then it would be wise for us to sit down and chart a way forward.” Minister Farrakhan continued.
“I said to Mr. Foxman, now, we can either do that in a way that will be mutually beneficial, or if you continue to malign me, to work to destroy the work that I’m doing to free our people and to guide our people, then God will ruin them not only here but all over the world. And it was that threat in the letter that maybe they were taken aback by it, but I have not heard from them and it’s okay, but the threat is real. I’m not just talking of myself. I believe that we are backed by God and His Christ and what we say not only has come to pass, but what we say in the name of Allah will come to pass and the ruin is already going on for them inside America and outside America,” the Minister added.
In the studio with Robert Muhammad, was Final Call staff writer Jesse Muhammad, who fielded questions received via Minister Farrakhan’s very active Twitter feed, which is growing in popularity.
The Minister said the rulers of the earth whom he called “Architects of Death” have now determined that it is “easier to kill than to control.”
“They, the architects of death, the ones that the Bible in the book of Revelations refers to as the blood shedder–these people have become scientists of death and destruction, so it is easier for them to kill a million people with disease, with AIDS with other things we are unsuspecting of (such as) the poisoning of the food, the air, the water. We are dying of all kinds of diseases.”
When asked about the “The Arab Spring” and the “Occupy Wall Street Movement,” the Minister said the two uprisings “are twins of each other.” He has repeatedly cautioned President Barack Obama and the U.S. government that the unrest in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Syria would come to the streets of America.
“What we are witnessing all over the earth is the rise of the masses of the people. When you see that government can no longer control the masses by the propaganda of a controlled media, or through mis-education or though weak religious leadership, now the people are rising, they cannot be contained,” said the Minister.
“As these young people peacefully protest the robbery of the freedom that they were promised, the freedom that they were willing to shed their lifeblood on foreign battlefields for, as they stand up on these college campuses to say away with these international robber barons called international bankers, yes, now they are being beaten by the police in a vicious way, and it is going to get worse and soon, some of these young people will lose their lives and it will lead to riots and rebellions,” the Minister lamented.
“Yes, what you see overseas is now here and it soon will spread throughout America, and soon when the workers cannot get anymore unemployment benefits, when those benefits run out and you look at people who cannot find food to feed their children, you will see the civilized behavior of the human being degenerate into outright savagery and the respect for law and order will go out the window and anarchy will be the order of the day,” he warned.
In one final admonition, when asked about the increasingly bellicose rhetoric by those seeking war against Iran, the Minister said it would be “a tragic mistake” if President Obama was used by the Zionists to attack the Islamic nation.
