Mistakes? Mayhem? No. This Is Outright Murder

When Israel bombs, starves or shoots Palestinians, mainstream U.S. media downplays the atrocities. Loss of life is chalked up to mistakes or the tragedy of wartime mayhem. It’s not. It’s murder. The Israeli Defense Forces’ recent slaughter of hundreds of Gazans to retrieve four Israelis taken captive by Hamas is another bloody example of unlawful killing, genocide, murder and media collusion. “Hell.”...

Atrocities, arrest warrants and major accomplices in crimes against humanity

President Biden’s “ironclad” defense of Israel in the face of International Criminal Court charges against Zionist leaders are the words of a co-conspirator in crimes that much of the world has already condemned. When you are giving Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu billions of U.S. tax dollars, 2,000 lb. bombs that devastate refugee camps, villages and cities, backing an assault that...

Lessons from college: No rights Zionists are bound to respect

American colleges have a long history and tradition that is supposed to encourage debate, freedom of expression, development of political and social ideas and vehicles, such as protests, to express those ideas in a “democratic” society. That right is being crushed before our eyes. Jewish groups and individuals have strong-armed university officials into abusing students peacefully protesting genocide in Gaza and...

Jewish groups, Israel’s government are attacking the fundamental rights of American citizens

Two things can be true at the same time. But one cannot be a helpless victim and a powerful destroyer of others at the same time. Crying powerlessness while exerting great power is a favorite tactic of the Zionist lobby, Israel and evil ones who call themselves Jews but are not due to their wickedness. Their target this time? A Muslim...

Word play and playing with Palestinian lives

“A ‘lie’ is ‘a false statement made with a deliberate attempt to deceive; an intentional untruth.’  Everyone, at some point in life, has told a lie. But ‘telling a lie’ does not necessarily make one a liar. A ‘liar’ is ‘a person who has lied, or lies repeatedly.’ According to the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, a ‘liar’...

Atrocities, murder, and no end to genocide in Gaza

News of famine and loss of life in Gaza should not surprise us as Israelis continue their deadly assault on Palestinians or anyone within the Zionist state’s kill zone. The murder of World Central Kitchen humanitarian workers struck down by Israeli Defense Force missiles have again brought words of “sorrow” and calls for investigation. There was presidential outrage in the White...

Ramadan and Our Responsibility

With the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, nearly 1.9 billion Muslims worldwide began special fasting and prayers in another annual celebration of the Holy Qur’an being revealed to our beloved and noble Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) some 1,400 years ago. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke May 11 on the Nation of Islam’s Ramadan Prayer Line (now called the...

A Divine Warning and Why Soft Words Won’t Stop Gaza Genocide

What does Farrakhan have to say about the crisis in the Middle East? That cry and question were answered as the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered a powerful three-and-a-half-hour keynote address to thousands to close out the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day convention in Detroit where we started in 1930. Now there is another question: What will those who heard...

While the enemies of truth cannot win, we must fight for the truth

 A group has put out a report on the entertainment industry and how the industry is negatively impacting their community. If you thought it was Black folk complaining about the violence, hyper-sexualization of women and girls and the negative images associated with Black life, you would be wrong. Those who are complaining about the music industry are associated with one...

A place of refuge in a time of trouble

One glimpse at the world, whether witnessing the suffering in the Ukraine, the horrific shooting of children in Uvalde, Texas, or the fratricidal killings in Black communities there appears to be no hiding place, no safe space from widespread death. There seems to be no secure place when it comes to jobs and employment and a country that sees a...
