In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

I spoke previously about the policy of our government to depopulate the Third World by putting sterilants in the water and in staple foods, as well as other methodologies.  This “depopulation” is driven by policy which concerns the national interests of America for the raw materials of Third World nations:  the land, the water, as well as minerals, gold, silver, uranium, and oil.  We previously spoke of Dr. Henry Kissinger’s National Security Study Memorandum 200, which stated this policy of depopulation that was accepted under President Gerald Ford, and was reintroduced again under President Jimmy Carter.  And unfortunately, it’s still policy today toward the Third World. 

We also mentioned that this depopulation policy was being implemented not only in the United States of America today through abortions and toxic poisons being added to our water supply, but it is also being introduced to developed nations of the West as well.


What is “policy”?  According to the dictionary, “policy” is a noun which is defined as:  1.) a definite course of action adopted for the sake of expediency, facility; 2.) a course of action adopted and pursued by a government, ruler or political party; and 3.) it is an action or procedure conforming to or considered with reference to prudence or expediency.  “Policy” is, as a definite course or method of action, selected from among alternatives and in light of given conditions to guide and determine present and future actions.  Generally speaking, this means that any decision made by a government on how to act is considered to be “government policy.” 

We then can understand that this “depopulation memorandum” that Dr. Kissinger introduced became the policy of our government; and unfortunately, is the policy of our government as this broadcast is being seen.  It is policy with:

  • The United States Department of Agriculture
  • The United States Department of Defense
  • The “CIA” (Central Intelligence Agency)
  • The State Department and
  • The United States Agency for International Development (“USAID”)

In terms of how this wicked policy of depopulation has affected Africa and the Third World:  During my last visit to Zimbabwe, in southeastern Africa, we learned how the AIDS pandemic was killing 5,000 Zimbabweans a week—20,000 a month.  And the biggest industry at the time in the capital city of Harare was the making of coffins. …  And although it was the Blacks who were dying of AIDS, I asked about the White population—were they dying of AIDS; and the answer was, “No, they were not.”  I went to a luncheon sponsored by the Zimbabwean Department of Health, and a wonderful female doctor who was the Minister of Health was so proud to announce that every child in Zimbabwe was vaccinated with vaccines that had come from America and Europe. 

I grieved over the widespread death due to the poisons, not unintentionally put in vaccines, but intentionally put in vaccines to limit the population of Black people in those countries and places in the world where America’s needs for their vital minerals and resources were deemed necessary—in her mind—for her national interests; to keep America in the world as the “No. 1 superpower.” 

Killing off tens of hundreds of thousands of people in Third World nations, because those nations trust the scholars and scientists of the Western world, White people, who claim to want to “help” them.  While there are many White people who are sincere, they are the “fronts” that are used to open the door for the insincere Satanic Mind to enter, to practice evil under a claimed “noble motive.” 

So the Enemy has not changed from the beginning of his creation, “killing the darker, saving the lighter.”  And, that nature has not changed from the time of General Jeffrey Amherst in 1763, who put smallpox in blankets, and came to the Indians claiming that these blankets would “help comfort them through the winter”—using biological weapons against the Native people.  And the fact that we were injected with the most virulent form of syphilis during the “Tuskegee Experiments” from 1932-1972 (40 years); allowing us to cohabit with others, to spread the disease.  And all we got when it was discovered was an “apology,” and some meager, very meager, compensation.  Also, millions of Americans were given polio shots starting in the 1950s and 1960s; and now, flu shots.  And we don’t know what contagions or toxins are in the vial, or serum, that we are being injected with.

I went to Libya and spoke with Brother Leader, Muammar Gadhafi, and we advised him about setting up in Libya a pharmaceutical enterprise that would make medicines and vaccines for Africa and the Third World. …  Cuba has some of the cleanest vaccines to be found in the world!  But the embargo on Cuba disallows her to produce what she would desire to produce for the health and well-being of the peoples of the world.  This is why Gadhafi, in the mind of Europe and America, had to be destroyed—because he agreed to do this; and then, opened a $500 million hospital in Tripoli.  I was present at the opening of that hospital, and next to that hospital was a team of scientists that were developing medicines and vaccines.

Vaccine policies, AIDS pandemic:  Plans for ‘chemical and biological warfare’ outlined in Congressional hearings

In 1998, a Palestinian medical intern, along with five Bulgarian nurses, was found guilty by a Libyan court of intentionally infecting some 400 Libyan children with HIV in a Benghazi, Libya hospital.  The case was remanded, and a second trial also ended in a guilty conviction. The six were incarcerated from 1998 until the Supreme Court of the Libyan government upheld the death sentence conviction in July of 2007. 

The United States and the European Union had been constantly petitioning the Libyan government for their release, despite the first conviction; and even after the Court’s early July 2007 decision to uphold that conviction, an agreement was reached with the European Union that Libya would extradite these nurses to Bulgaria to serve their time in their own home country.  And when they arrived, Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov commuted their sentences, and freed the six.

It was reported in an article (“For Bulgarian nurses, freedom isn’t easy”) in The Christian Science Monitor on November 19, 2008 that although there were reports that the six were tortured for confessions, that:  “… some Bulgarians still believe that the nurses are guilty,” and “Others view them as opportunistic,” referring to a reported deal to make a movie.  But we see them as part of a policy of genocide.  That America and this policy could be charged in the international criminal court with “genocide.”


The biological pandemic “AIDS” has a bleak, ominous—and questionable—history, when we consider a [June 9, 1969] “Subcommittee of The Committee on Appropriations House of Representatives Hearing” which contained the testimony of Dr. Donald M. Mac Arthur of the Army Advanced Research Project Agency, who testified on “Chemical and Biological Warfare” as follows:  “… There are two things about the biological field agent I would like to mention. One is the possibility of technical surprise. Molecular biology is a field that is advancing very rapidly and eminent biologists believe that within a period of five to ten years, it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired.”

What is “AIDS”?  It is:  Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

Dr. MacArthur later added that it was possible to make a “new infective micro-organism” that would be:  “refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious diseases.”  What is the meaning of “refractory”?  It’s an adjective that means: 1.) Uncontrollable; stubborn, rebellious; 2.) “heat-resistant” (physics industry – resistant to high temperatures and therefore not easily melted); and 3.) “not responsive to treatment” (medicine – unresponsive to medical treatment, as in a “refractory infection”).  The report also deduced, “It is a highly controversial issue and there are many who believe such research should not be undertaken lest it lead to another method of massive killing of large populations.”

The request for the $10 million to pursue that research was granted in 1970 under House Bill 15090 to begin the study.

In a May 11, 1987 London Times article entitled, “Smallpox vaccine ‘triggered AIDS virus,’ ” by Pearce Wright (then the Times’ Science Editor), he wrote regarding a 13-year World Health Organization (“WHO”) so-called smallpox vaccine program:  “The smallpox vaccine theory would account for the position of each of the seven Central African states which top the league table of most-affected countries; why Brazil became the most afflicted Latin American country”—it has 80 million sons and daughters of Africa in Brazil—“and how Haiti became the route for the spread of AIDS to the U.S.”

The greatest spread of HIV infection coincides with the most intense immunization programs, with the number of people immunized being as follows: In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, formerly known as “Zaire,” 36,878,000 people were vaccinated; in Zambia, 19,060,000; in Tanzania, 14,972,000; in Uganda, 11,616,000; in Malawi, 8,118,000; in Rwanda, 3,382,000; and in Burundi, 3,274,000.   But the main one is Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of the Congo; and that is where the most mineral resources are that America needs are found.  The smallpox inoculations in Zimbabwe from 1964-1973, when it was still called “Rhodesia,” was 13,410,444 Zimbabweans.

Mineral resources of Zimbabwe and The Democratic Republic of the Congo are as follows:  Zimbabwe Industries are mining (coal, gold, platinum, copper, nickel, tin, diamonds, clay, numerous metallic and nonmetallic ores), steel; wood products, cement, chemicals, fertilizer, clothing and footwear, foodstuffs, beverages.  And in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the industries of:  mining (copper, cobalt, gold, diamonds, coltan, zinc, tin, tungsten), mineral processing, consumer products (textiles, plastics, footwear, cigarettes), metal products, processed foods and beverages, timber, cement, commercial ship repair.  Could this be why there is constant civil war in The Congo?

There is an AIDS pandemic, as we speak, in the Black community.  And the Black woman, it is said, is the “No. 1” carrier of the HIV virus.


On August 20, 1998, following a limited meeting of President [Bill] Clinton and six of his advisers, the world was surprised by a missile attack on a pharmaceutical plant in the Sudan. According to a September 1, 1998, New York Times article by Tim Wiener and James Risen, the purpose of greater secrecy of the “small group” was to prevent leaks.  This attack was somehow combined with an attack in Afghanistan aimed at Osama bin Laden in retaliation for two U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa.  They said that Osama bin Laden was then living in the Sudan.  The article continued, however, that: “… within days of the attack, some of the [Clinton] administration’s explanations for destroying the factory in Sudan proved inaccurate. Many people inside and outside the U.S. government began to ask whether questionable intelligence had prompted the United States to blow up [the wrong building]”—that pharmaceutical building.

President Clinton came before the American people and said that in that building they were making “weapons of mass destruction,” when, in fact, they were doing the very thing that Brother Gadhafi was doing:  Making medicines and vaccines to heal the condition of African people.  And, of course, that would have interfered with the policy of our government to depopulate these countries.

America seeks to destroy anyone who opposes her policies.  Anyone who stands in the way of such policies that interfere with America’s national interests, she plots and she plans to destroy them. …

What governments on the Earth can trust us with vaccines, with food, with your saying that you have a desire to give them potable water; water that’s fit or suitable for drinking? 

You say that you want to fight against malaria and the mosquitoes—and we are so trusting:  We will not take what you give, and examine it scientifically, though we have scientists that are qualified and capable to do that.  The whole Earth is in the Valley of the Shadow of Death.  And “a pale horse” that is in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 6, verse 8, where it says, “death is the rider and hell follows behind that rider”—that pale horse is hurting the Earth and its people:  “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” 

Satan is transforming himself into some type of “angel of light,” saying he wants to “help the world,” while at the same time Satan is a pathological liar and a psychopath of the worst kind, who can never admit his own fault and he kills without any conscious or thought of mercy.  Only what Satan deems is good for himself.  No wonder when we say our Oft-Repeated Prayers, we open by saying:  “I seek refuge in Allah against the accursed Satan.”

Paul, The Apostle, in the Book of Ephesians, Chapter 6, verse 12, says:  “We war not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places”; and in the Book of 2 Corinthians, Chapter 11, verses 13-14, Paul says:  “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” 

Who are these people, “spiritual wickedness that is in high places”?  This is talking about spiritual leaders who are being used to fight against The Truth of The Gospel of Jesus The Christ. …

In the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s monumental book, “How to Eat to Live, Book 1,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote over 50 years ago about the dangers of chemical sterilants and additives being put in our water and food. … On Pages 107-108, in the chapter “Poisonous Food and Water,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad continues: “Take, for instance, the use of fluoride, chloride, and sodium, which if not used correctly can destroy our entire life. Maybe it is best to find something else that will clear our water without killing both us and the poison in our food and water.  The scientist should not advocate the use of such poisonous chemicals as fluoride, chloride, and sodium, which may have a bad effect on our brains and our human reproductive organs. The scientist that uses such poison on human beings wants to either minimize the birth rates or cause the extinction of a people.  D.D.T., which is sprayed on food while it is growing up from the earth, is also a poison that should not be put into the human body, regardless of the desire to kill the insects that loves to dine on the same food on which we dine. The poison may not take instant [effect] on us, as it does the insects, but it can, over the long years, help shorten the span of our lives.  We live in a world commercializing on everything where money is involved, and this has speeded production of everything but human lives, in order to fill the demand of the people. This has caused many scientists to overlook the dangerous effects that such fast production has on the health of the people.  Therefore, the only way out for us, the poor Lost-Found Black man and woman of America, is to seek refuge and guidance in Allah for our protection from the evil plannings and doings of Satan.  Allah (God) has pointed out to us in both the Bible and the Holy Qur’an the right foods for us to eat and He has pointed out the poisonous food and drinks.  Follow Allah (God’s) guidance or suffer the consequences.”

In fact, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad says of his teachings:  “What I am teaching you is life!  Accept it and live!  Reject it, and the consequences are an untimely and early death.”


Remember the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad when he spoke of the scientists that use such poison on human beings.  Elijah Muhammad said they either want to: 1.) “minimize the birth rates” of human beings, or 2.) “cause the extinction of a people.”  That is very serious, for both of these are a part of “The Convention on Genocide.” 

What is “genocide”?  According to Article 2 of “The Convention on The Prevention and Punishment of The Crime of Genocide” [adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 9, 1948, enforced on January 12, 1951], it states:  “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

My dear people of America, my dear brothers and sisters are being the victims of genocide.  We could take our government, with these polices, to the International Criminal Court.  But most of the nations of the Earth have signed that they will not take Americans, or American citizens, to the International Criminal Court.  America has used the threat of what she gives to these nations, that she will “take it away” if they don’t sign that they will never bring an American before the International Criminal Court.


We must develop the scientists that will examine whatever they offer us, because we know you as a blood shedder, we know you as a liar, we know you as a deceiver and a murderer.  So why would we trust you with our precious gift, our children?  In the 1960s, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad advised his followers not to take the polio vaccine.  He said some of the early vaccines we could take; but now that this Kissinger National Security Study Memorandum 200 on depopulation is the policy of our government, then we have to be careful of what injections we allow ourselves to take.
