CHICAGO—It may be the most difficult job a man has ever faced: helping the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad complete his difficult task of resurrecting the mentally and spiritually dead Black man and woman in North America. Minister Louis Farrakhan explained in detail—Saviours’ Day 2019, on Feb. 17—how he was prepared for that role, in his mother’s womb, even before his birth.
“A Saviour is Born for the Whole of Humanity: No One Need Perish,” was the theme, celebrated by tens of thousands of members and guests attending the three day celebration of the birth anniversary of Master W. Fard Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam in the Wilderness of North America, and the teacher of Mr. Muhammad who carried the message and built the Nation for 41 years, leaving a Divine Reminder—the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan—to show the world the way to salvation.
The new nation is being built on the Word of Allah, God Almighty, right before our eyes. “I see what is happening in America! Black people are rising and White people are watching,” Minister Farrakhan said in a four-hour-long lecture at the United Center, home of Chicago’s professional basketball and hockey teams.
“There is nobody in America like Farrakhan,” the Muslim leader explained. “I want you to listen. White people haven’t done anything that they weren’t supposed to do. The Holy Qur’an says the new ruler would create mischief and cause the shedding of blood.”
A saviour was born into the Nation of Islam in 1955, when the 464-year term Black people had spent in the “furnace of affliction” in this country—310 years of chattel slavery, and the last 154 years of lynching, Jim Crow segregation, and racial discrimination. The year 1955 was when a young, wildly popular, Calypso-style musician named Louis Walcott wrote his “Saviour’s Letter” of acceptance, and joined on with all his heart and energy to help spread Mr. Muhammad’s message.
That letter, written by all incoming members of the Nation at that time, taught Minister Farrakhan three things, he said: Observation; concentration; and submission. The letter had to be written in blue or black ink, on plain, unlined paper, with every single “i” dotted and every single “t” crossed, with no erasures, or mistakes, before anyone was admitted into the ranks.
“I want to introduce you to Jesus. He came to save us from our sins. The Hon. Elijah Muhammad added to that Bible reference, ‘save you from the sins of White people.’ ” Indeed, the Muslim leader explained, “They made us into themselves.”
“I represent a universal Saviour to all the White people,” Minister Farrakhan explained. “I represent that Messiah. I am that Jesus. I have offered my life. Here I am!” But the miracle of the resurrection of the Black Nation in this country was not to come without major opposition. “Jews are obsessed with me,” Minister Farrakhan said. “I’ve been working 64 years on the ‘Black Problem.’ I never had any need to talk to White people,” and Whites, after their anti-Muslim campaigns of the 1960s and 1970s led to the increase in Mr. Muhammad’s fame and popularity, were mostly silent about the Nation of Islam until the 1984 presidential campaign of the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Minister Farrakhan has withstood the battering and countless condemnations of his good work. The enemy and Jewish groups and publications, in particular, have chosen in recent years to condemn and punish those outside the Nation who have associated with the Minister, demanding that they denounce him or distance themselves from him.
But contrary to corporate media interpretation, Minister Farrakhan explained that he is not a hater of any people because of the race, their religion, their gender, or even their sexual preference.
“The name ‘Jew’ is a divine name,” the Minister said, referring to the Bible’s book of Revelations. “Real Jews do good.” But others “are using the name ‘Jew’ to hide themselves. Some Jewish people think so much of themselves,” until they will not let anyone else use the term “holocaust” to describe their own suffering
“Why do you think that I call them out and they don’t show up?” Minister Farrakhan asked rhetorically, then explaining that their charges of “anti-Semitism” are wrong and unjust, because the Ashkenazi, Caucasians who call themselves Jews, are not truly Semitic people, as are the Arabs, Hebrews, and Arameans, who originated in the Holy Land, Palestine. “They are European White people.”
“These are not the true Jews! These are Ashkenazis who use the Talmud (which was written by rabbis), and not the Torah, the revealed Word of God.”
Even sharecropping “can be traced to the Talmud,” he said.
“Israel sees the Black man as a problem,” the Minister said, referring to statements by a high level Israeli figure who complained that Black youth, and young activists in movements like Black Lives Matter with sensitivity to suffering Palestinians, are a threat to Zionist interests. “Israel, you are making a very big mistake, and you are hastening your doom. You leave my Black brothers and sisters alone, because you fear what they are going to become, if they listen to Farrakhan.”
