In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I asked the question: “Who Are The Real Children of Israel?” The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said that Almighty God Allah revealed to him that the Black people of America are The Real Children of Israel. And we are The Choice of God; and that unto us He will deliver His Promise.
This question says that somebody has usurped our position. This question says that somebody has taken The Promise of God to the Children of Israel, and claimed it for themselves. But those of you who are scholars of Christianity, Judaism and Islam: If you can disprove this, then I’ll pay with my life for lying.
To all of those who feel that the Children of Israel are over in that place they call “Israel”: You are mistaken. To the Christian Right, who feel that if you bless Israel, that you will be blessed. For over 60 years, that nation has not been blessed!
The Black man and woman of America: These are the people; that if you bless us, then God will take off of America some of the plagues that are now coming on America that will get worse after I have delivered this message.
My declaring this, I know will divide scholars, theologians, Jews, Christians and Muslims. But it is time, now, that a proper dialogue be set up to answer the question that I’ve raised and answered. It is time for the scholars to sit down, and look at scripture and prophecy, to find out who is that Last One that would usher in The Kingdom, and bring about The End of this Present World.
Most of us talk about White Supremacy, but we have never understood The Architecture of White Supremacy; therefore, we continue to be victims of it, because the Light of Truth has not shown the root of White Supremacy.
Once the light of the Sun strikes the root of the tree, the tree dies. And what has happened to Black people, and White people, and Jews and Gentiles, is that a small group—10 percent—have deceived and misused 85 percent of the people; and sucked their blood to live in luxury at the expense of those who do not understand the Law of Cause and Effect; and believe in a Mystery God and are Poison Animal Eaters.
But the wickedly wise have known The Truth; and because they know The Truth, and they know The Time, they are working night and day to trick you out of The Promise of God, and take you down to hell with them, because The Time of Their End has come!
The Architecture of White Supremacy has never been brought to the table to be discussed. The Architecture of White Supremacy will have to be exposed, so the Tree of White Supremacy can die, and the Tree of Humanity can live.
Who are The Draftsmen, and The Architects of such an Idea that has dominated our Planet for the last 4,000 years? Our Historical Research Department has studied from the scholarship of Jewish historians, scholars and rabbis; and we have published Volume No. 2 of “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.” And in it, you will discover The Architecture, and The Architect.
I sent this book, and another one that is printed called “Jews Selling Blacks,” to Mr. Abraham Foxman of B’nai B’rith, and to all the leaders of the major Jewish organizations. I sent it to President Obama, to Rahm Emanuel, to David Axelrod, to Timothy Geithner, to Larry Summers, to Ben Bernanke; to all the people that should know what was done to us, and can no longer hide. That is why Jesus said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
What truth shall you know? If you are not yet free—and you are not!—then you do not yet know the truth that Jesus was talking about, that would free you from your Open Enemy, awaken you, cleanse you, and reconnect you to The God Who has come for your and my salvation.
In this Book of Genesis, we get lots of pictures of God, and His Promise. In Chapter 15, God is talking to Abram: “Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them and shall afflict them 400 years. But after that time”—God is speaking—“I will come! And I will judge that nation which they shall serve. And afterwards, shall they come out with great substance. And go to their fathers in peace, and be buried in a good old age.”
The Jewish people claim that this is talking about them, but other than the Bible, there is no historical record of anybody named “Jews,” in bondage in Egypt for 400 years. There is no historical record of their suffering in bondage like that. Now, they were freed from a “bondage,” all right—but that was in the hills and cavesides of Europe!
These people have no legitimate connection to The Holy Land; they didn’t come into existence in The Holy Land. They came into existence, as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that Allah taught him, on the Island of Pelan; or, as it is written in the Book of Revelation, “Patmos.” They came back to the Holy Land after 600 years of grafting them from Black into “White.”
So, how did they have any connection to The Holy Land? You see, after The Process of Grafting was completed, and they came back to Arabia, which is The Holy Land, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that within six months, they had turned The Holy Land upside down, because they were taught a System of Tricks and Lies that would divide The Family; and it caused us to fight and kill one another, because of the Falsehoods that have been put between us!
Moses had a hard job to civilize the Caucasian from the hills and cavesides of Europe. He did have another assignment after he got them up in Egypt—but not with them.
If they didn’t do 400 years in Egypt, could it be that this was a prophetic, symbolic picture of a Future People who would be the Seed of Abraham? Jewish people claim Abraham, but, I’m sorry. I have to tell you: The Masquerade is over. This is not “Jew bashing.” I don’t have anything in my heart against the Jewish people; I admire them. But, I have to tell the Truth.
If they didn’t suffer this, who did? If God said to Abraham: “I’m going to bless you … look to the North, look to the South, look to the East, look to the West. I’m going to give it all to you, that you can hold it forever! If you can count the stars, so great will be the multiplication of the seed of Abraham. If you can count the dust, you’ll be able to count the multiplication of your seed.”
Have we been here 400 years? Are we strangers in a land that is not ours? Have we been afflicted in this land, every day of our sojourn here?
Could it be that we are The People of The Promise? Could it be that we are The People that should be expecting The Visitation of God? Could it be, that after all our suffering, relief is in sight, now?
In the Book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 18, verse 18, God says: “I will raise them up a prophet from among their bretheren, like unto thee, Moses …” Moses was a Civilizer: Moses took a man up out of the caves, and made him upright. Moses taught them how to cook food; how to bury their dead, as the Bible teaches: “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so shall the Son of Man be lifted up.” It’s all about you.
“I’m going to put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him …” Now, you can’t have a man like Moses unless you have a people enslaved in a terrible condition. You can’t have a man like Moses without a Pharaoh. You can’t have a man like Moses, except there is tyranny.
And you can’t have a man like Moses who’s preaching “integration.” Moses wasn’t telling the Children of Israel: “I want to integrate you into Egypt, so you can marry the sons and daughters of the Egyptians.”
No! He was telling them: “You tell Pharaoh to let my people go!”
In Volume 1 of “The Secret Relationship [Between Blacks and Jews],” it goes into the horror of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, and how the Jewish people were heavily involved in that.
The South became the leader in production of cotton; and The Delta in Mississippi area was the greatest cotton producing part of the Earth. Cotton was then what oil is now! The largest producer of oil in the world are the rich ones; and the strategic interests of America means in order for them to rule, they have to link with where the oil is coming from, and take it, or maneuver to get it. But they must have oil.
In the time of Slavery, it was cotton; and it’s interesting that the cotton would come down The Mississippi River to New Orleans, to The Gulf; from Biloxi, Mississippi; and from Mobile, Alabama. The cotton would come down, and go up to New York, where the brethren of the Jewish people in the South, in the North, were the masters of the needle trades. And they had their brothers, also, in the South taking the lint from the cotton, and producing cloth through weaving.
But these were Jewish people owning the land: They were the majority; they were the merchants, they were the traders. They knew how to hook-up with their brethren in the North; and they would send raw cotton to the mills in England—in Manchester, Leeds, and Bristol; and the British would turn it into cloth, and then sell it all over the world!
So from cotton, the South became rich! From cotton, it fueled the Industrial Revolution in the North! From cotton, the Rothschilds became rich! From cotton, the Lehman Brothers became rich!
The Messenger of God said anything you want to find, it’s written in a book. But if we don’t read, how will we know? The Historical Research Department in the Nation of Islam researched it; and now we’re going before the world with it.
Did you know that we’re still sharecropping? See, today, the Jewish people have developed a new strategy.
All of our entertainers; see, we have the talent; and the Jews have the expertise. They attach themselves to our talent: They are the managers, the agents; and they are the accountants. That’s why our Black artists loved fame, and got fame—but died poor, because somebody else got their money, while the Jews sent their children to the finest schools, and were able to continue to rule, while you pass on nothing to your children but the legacy of your fame, and nothing else.
Now they have decided, “You know. We have to change this. New strategy!” The old strategy was “let them die broke,” but today, they’ve developed a new strategy: “Let’s make our Negroes rich.”
My brother, Russell Simmons, a multi-millionaire, wrote a beautiful piece on “Black-Jewish Relations.” And I’m here to tell you: No Black man, or woman, becomes a multi-millionaire without friendship in the Jewish Community.
Russell Simmons is a good brother; and he has great friendship with the Jewish people. Miss Oprah Winfrey: A beautiful woman, with a beautiful heart—a multi-billionaire! But there’s a Jewish man that helped guide her career, and make her who she is.
P. Diddy; Jay-Z—Even in Hip Hop, Jews manage most of the Black Hip Hop artists. They come with the “bling bling,” and a nice car; and they show you that they’re successful. But if you could see the breakdown of the record deals, they end up with nothing.
I have a list of all the Jewish NBA owners. See, it’s like a Plantation; you’re just a piece of meat, throwing balls in hoops. They’ve got dogs that can do that! But now, you’re the “best” at doing it; so you’re on a Plantation. You’re a rich slave, and you’re sharecropping again!
Look at you today: You can’t see how torn up you are? You want a home, don’t you? Everybody wants a home, so they made it possible for you to get one: “No Money Down!” All you do is pay interest. How in the hell could you accept a deal like that? And in three years, the interest goes up! You didn’t see that in the fine print. Now, you’re in “Foreclosure.” It’s a trick! Who’s behind it? Wall Street!
And they didn’t just do it to you! They did it to America! In 1913, when the Federal Reserve Act was made, America was $2 billion in debt. Less than 100 years later, she’s $13 trillion in debt!
How did all that happen? Now the country is like the sharecroppers: working to pay off debt that America owes to China, Japan, and others who are just loaning America money.
And here comes Brother Obama.
Do you know that President Obama was nurtured for this position? Just as Jewish people wrote that Bill Clinton was the first “Black president,” Barack Obama would be the first “Jewish president.” Now that’s a terrible thing to say, but they were telling you: “We own the brother.”
His early money came from Goldman Sachs. He was nurtured by Jews who saw in him his brilliance—he’s a beautiful human being; and they knew that as brilliant as he was, they could use him to trick Black people away from The Promise of God.
He’s not a willing participant in madness, but Satan understood The Time, and he knew that this was the right man for The Time. They selected him—and what could we do? We had to vote for our brother, because he was the best thing we ever saw.
He’s president, now, and he’s upsetting them, because all the Jewish presidents of major organizations met him in the Oval Office, and told him to “go easy on Israel, and settlements in the West Bank.” And because he was strong, out of Israel they started calling him what they’ve been calling me: an “Anti-Semite.”
President Obama can’t talk about “Reparations.” He’s not going to be bringing that up! But let me ask you a question: Do you think, after making America rich, and strong, and fighting in all her wars; making Europe strong, do you think that we are owed Reparations for what we have done to make America what America is?
There are Black people, right now, in Mississippi in slavery, in Alabama, in slavery; and, a Black man (Rep. John Conyers) is appealing to Congress to right this wrong, but he can’t get a hearing! We have over 400,000 Black men and women in the United States armed forces! What are they doing in Iraq? What are they doing in Afghanistan, when our fight is here?!
The Time has come when we have to present a solid case to America! They have no jobs for us! They don’t intend to look after us! God raised the question in Isaiah: “Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, and the lawful captive be delivered?” You are a lawful captive being used as a hostage!
But as you see the plagues, now, striking America: One town was overrun with flies; another was overrun with frogs. Rain, hail, snow, earthquakes! God is going to put an exclamation point behind this lecture, and a calamity of great magnitude is going to strike America!
I am my father’s helper! You don’t need to look for no “Moses”! Elijah Muhammad is that Moses! And I am his Aaron, and his Joshua! You don’t need to look for your “Jesus”; he is the first begotten of the dead! You are on a dead level; Elijah was raised from you! And I am to him what Paul was to Jesus!
The Jews may not like me, because the Jews didn’t like Jesus; and they began to argue with Jesus, as they’re going to soon argue with me! Over what? We, The Children of Abraham. But Jesus said, to the Jews: “If you were the Children of Abraham, you would be found doing the works of Abraham!” They said, “We are from God! God is our Father!” but Jesus said, “If God were your father, you would love me, for I proceeded forth and came from God!”
I say to the Jews: If You Are The Seed Of Abraham, You Would Do The Works Of Abraham! He was a just man! He was a righteous man! He was an upright man! He was neither a “Christian,” nor a “Jew,” for he predated the Torah and The Gospel!
We are the Seed of Abraham! We are The Children of Divine Promise! We are The People that God Has Visited! And we are The People that God Has Promised Land! And He will fight this Enemy for your freedom!
