Louis Farrakhan is reported speaking at Chicago’s Mosque Maryam which is the national headquarters for the SPLC-designated “hate group” Nation of Islam (NOI). “Hate group” leader Farrakhan told a standing room only audience in Chicago: “The government already knows that your time to be a slave in America is over!” and that “America has run out of time.”
Farrakhan stated that Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad “met with God… [to]… challenge the government of America, the White people of America and warn them of their inevitable destruction…” According to the Final Call report, “Farrakhan challenged the Black man and woman to stand up and reclaim their rightful place of rulership.”
Farrakhan concluded that “There is nothing in either (Bible or Holy Qur’an) that teaches integration of the righteous with the wicked.”
The report also stated that “Akbar Muhammad [and Farrakhan associate], a world traveler who has been to 139 countries during his work as international representative of the Nation of Islam, said it is important for the people to know the type of respect and honor Minister Farrakhan receives from prominent leaders within the Muslim world. Regarding the Minister’s message, Akbar Muhammad called it a ‘clear warning’ to those involved in ‘diabolical schemes’ to prevent our rise.”
In 2007, the Nation of Islam’s Akbar Muhammad (aka Larry 4X Prescott) appeared at a Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) meeting with Siraj Wahhaj, reportedly “to deliver a passionate speech defending convicted cop killer Jamil Alamin.” (Siraj Wahhaj has also been vice president of ISNA, has called for replacement of the U.S. government with an Islamic caliphate, and spoke at the July 4, 2009 ISNA convention in Washington DC.)
According to supporters of Jamil Alamin, MANA’s call for an alliance of “indigenous Muslims in America” “initiative began almost two years ago when Imam Jamil Al-Amin made a call for the formation of such an alliance.” In October 2009, when reported Violent Extemism plotter Luqman Ameen Abdullah was killed in a shootout in Michigan, the FBI criminal complaint regarding members of the Masjid Al-Haqq’s role as part of the “The Ummah” was as follows – “Their primary mission is to establish a separate, sovereign Islamic state (‘The Ummah’) within the borders of the United States, governed by Sharia law. The Ummah is to be ruled over by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown, who is currently serving a life sentence in the Florence, Colorado Supermax for shooting two police officers in Georgia.” MANA’s Ihsan Bagby disputed this FBI report and indicated that while members of “The Ummah” were “anti-government,” they did not promote violence.
The Final Call report on Farrakhan’s speeech in Chicago concludes with demonstrating the power of Farrakhan’s outreach, stating that “Nare Makhan, a Chicago resident who had just returned from Florida early Sunday morning said, ‘There was so much information that was so empowering.’ ‘It was overwhelming. It’s touching in a way. I’ve never owned a Qu’ran, but now I just bought me a Qu’ran and I am going to study it. I just bought everything to catch up as far as what I think is necessary for me to move forward now in life. It’s a serious hour.’ ”
