The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad on ‘Uncle Toms’

The Messenger of Allah, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, addressed the “Uncle Tom” phenomenon in several passages of his writings and lectures:

 



Elijah Muhammad, The Fall of America (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple of Islam No. 2, 1973), p. 201:

We want a home on this earth we can call our own. We do not want to be slaves anymore to white people. We do not want to be free “Uncle Toms” for white people. We want to do something for self and go for self.

 

Elijah Muhammad, The Fall of America (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple of Islam No. 2, 1973), pp. 159-60:

They must be separated. America will not agree to see the Negro separated from her until she has suffered divine punishment, as Pharaoh suffered. The same thing that other evil nations suffered before them is now coming upon this people.

She seeks to keep her slaves robbed of opportunity and wealth. She envies success coming to American Negro free slaves. She charges them high prices to keep them down. She deceives them through a few of what we call “Uncle Toms” in the political circle, clergy class and all professional classes.

She offers them little favoritism to help her work against their own people—the Black people. But they, too, will suffer along with the enemy of justice of the poor so-called Negro.

 

Elijah Muhammad, “
Every Nation Has A Term,” chap. 14 in The Fall of America (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple of Islam No. 2, 1973):

They offer high positions and money to the so-called Negro intellectual politicians who will work against the good of the Black American people. They will accept such gratuity, for they have been deprived of love for self and kind. What do they care about the millions who are sprawled in the mud of civilization? They are content as long as they eat the buttered biscuit and the fried chicken (as their slave-fathers did).

You would not think that they would hire themselves out to be stool pigeons— white man’s bootlickers and Uncle Toms in these modern times of advanced education—but they are doing just that.

They do not want the praise and exaltation of God and their own Black people. They want it from the slavemasters’ children. The slavemasters’ children will give it to them as long as they reject themselves and kind and worship and exalt the white people.

The white man is very clever in making a public fool of the Black man. They show the brown, yellow and red man what a good job they have done on the Black man in America and throughout the earth. He is doing what nature bids him to do.

 

John Ali, introduction to The Fall of America, Elijah Muhammad (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple of Islam No. 2, 1973), pp. viii-ix:

The Black man in America is no longer willing to listen to misguided teachings of his modern-day elders called Uncle Toms. This is why the Uncle Toms are disturbed. This is why their white masters are concerned. And well they might be, for the day when the Black m[e]n of America will scratch where they don’t itch and laugh, when they are being kicked, is over.

 

Elijah Muhammad, Our Saviour Has Arrived (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple of Islam No. 2, 1974), p. 3:


We, the Black nation, today with the knowledge of the truth cannot accept leaders made and offered to us for our guidance. I warn each of you to no more accept the white man’s made or chosen leaders for you. This is what has kept us bound in the mental chains of slavery since the days of slavery. Our leaders are by their choice. These kind[s] of leaders are Uncle Toms who are licking the boots of the white man for his pleasure and wealth regardless of what happens to you and me; for they care not.

 

Elijah Muhammad, “Make America Know Her Sins,” Message To The Blackman In America (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple No. 2, 1965), 281-84.

There are thousands and tens of thousands of American so-called Negroes and in those tens of thousands are such professional and educated class of people as preachers, ministers of the white man’s Christianity, even scientists, scholars of many kinds and technicians of all kinds who have become submerged into the love and worship of the white race because of advantages.

Today they preach the gospel of being an American citizen and worship equally their intermarriage with white Americans who used the black women from the time they were brought here 400 years ago until this very day, as they would their stock and cattle.

It is a perfect shame and disgrace to see men of the black nation professing themselves to be spiritual guides of God and His people, endorsing and backing the rule of enemies who have spoiled and exploited them to the extent that they are not recognized even among their own kind outside America. These ignorant black people will oppose anyone who preaches freedom, Justice and equality and some of this earth that we can call our own.

It is clear that such a spiritual leader as this is more an enemy to his people than the real devil (Caucasian). They want to please the enemy at the expense and destruction of their own people. They are more upset (the clergy) over the preaching of justice for our people and a home on this earth that we can call our own than the white man himself.

They hope, as I said, to always say, preach, teach, pray, sing and act in a way which pleases the slave-master of their fathers and his children. They are a class of “Uncle Toms” and “Stool Pigeons.”

They are the first to go to the policemen and F.B.I. seeking persecution for those who stand for freedom, justice and equality and independence for the black man of America by their admired and worshiped enemy (the white race). They will accuse them of trying to overthrow the government or even of causing trouble.

The white man has looked into their faces many times as into their children’s faces and cursed them and called them Black Negroes and told us to our faces that they hate us and should kill us.

All of my life I have heard this, and all of their lives they have heard the same from the mouths of these people. But today they wish to save their skin by sacrificing their poor, blind, deaf and dumb people to the destroyer for their own selfish gains.

I have begged and begged for many years for just a conference with them, but they will not come near. But they will go to the white man and beg him to drive Elijah and his followers out and even kill them. This is the enemy, but Elijah Muhammad is laid as a stumbling stone. That stone that has been rejected by the builders. Whosoever falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, and whosoever the stone falls upon will be ground into powder.

No wonder the Bible says, woe, woe unto such professional class that stand in the way of those who would enter the Kingdom of Heaven. They refuse to go in themselves and seek to prevent those who are trying to enter.

I am sorry for my poor people who should be helping in the right way to get a permanent future of freedom, justice and equality and who now, due to fear, are doing everything to oppose it. They are dumb enough to the knowledge of the scripture of what God has prophesied He would do in this day and time, and they make mockery even of the Messenger of God because God did not choose one of them or one of their proud politicians. They make mockery of him as being too ignorant to lead them.

But let them tell you what type of an Apostle or prophet God promised them. Was it a man from some of the enemy colleges and universities with an arm full of degrees coming from these institutions of learning of the enemy?

Let them read their scriptures and see what type of man God promised to choose for a last messenger. How many of the prophets in the past were educated men of the civilization in which they were born before the call of God?

 

Elijah Muhammad, “Land of Our Own and Qualifications: The Unity of 22 Million,” Message To The Blackman In America (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple No. 2, 1965), 220-21.

What actually is preventing this unity of 22 million or more of us is the ignorance and foolish love and fear of our enemies in the professional and leadership class of this nation of 22 million black people up from slavery.

These are disgraceful “Uncle Toms” in a world of freedom, learning an advanced science in every branch of study. How long shall we seek the white men’s education to become their servants instead of becoming builders of a progressive nation of our own on some of this earth that we can call our own?

 

Elijah Muhammad, “On ‘Uncle Toms’,” Message To The Blackman In America (Chicago: Muhammad’s Temple No. 2, 1965), p. 320 (excerpt from an interview granted to the National Educational Television Network; the series of interviews were conducted by the staff of San Francisco station KQED).

ON “UNCLE TOMS”

“That doesn’t mean that we are in any way aggressive toward them and seek an aggressive act. We only just criticize them for being like that.

“I love all my people, and I believe one day they all will believe as I believe. If they don’t, the prophets have lied—and we just can’t make liars out of them.”

 

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, “THE THEOLOGY OF TIME” lecture, June 11, 1972:

 

I say brother and sisters, wake up. This is the height of ignorance: A Black woman wanting to marry a White man–her murderer. Or a Black man wanting to marry a White woman–his murderer. You must remember the parable of Delilah [Judges 16:4-31] was for her people and not for Samson, because Samson was a strong man that her people didn’t like and she only wanted to find out his wisdom and strength. It shows how he tried to shun her, but later gave in, because she was unalike and she was much smarter than Samson in wisdom; therefore, she could force Samson to give up himself to her. Remember, that [scripture] was put there for us. We are the Samson of the time, but we can destroy ourself—pardon me, ourselves, by giving over to the enemy all of our secrets. Some of the brothers call them Uncle Toms. I don’t think [w]e should put the “Uncle” there.

Newly UNCOVERED Photo Reveals Farrakhan Meeting Reagan, Bush

Jewish List of “anti-Semites” Just Got Much Longer and Much Whiter

 

In 2018, the Jewish leadership stepped up their racist campaign to destroy the reputations of Black leaders who no longer accept the political manipulations of Jewish money. It started many years ago, but the latest incarnation began with the recent publication of a 2005 photograph taken by journalist Askia Muhammad showing Senator Barack Obama happily posing for a photo with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Arrogant and overreaching, Jews demanded to know why they hadn’t been told of the photo, suggesting that knowledge of it would have changed the course of American history and even doomed the chance to elect Obama as the first Black president.

2005 photo by Askia Muhammad

Soon Jews feigning outrage demanded lists of ALL shvartses (Jewish term for “niggers”) who had EVER had photos taken with The Honorable Minister. Rep. Keith Ellison was thought to have been in a room with him and he was pilloried. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus were photographed hugging Black America’s most respected and admired leader, and ALL 21 of them were publicly whipped, their names plastered all over the Jewish-controlled media. It began to look like one of the many Jewish slave-auction advertisements that were so common when they dominated the slave trade for 400 years[1]. (See, for example, Rabbi Levin selling “22 Likely Negroes at Auction.”)

Ad placed by slave-selling Rabbi Levin

So Jewish leaders, in their utter madness, have established an absurd criterion they demand Blacks comply with: ANYBODY who has been in a room with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan MUST be condemned, disgraced, and lose their jobs. And it escapes no one’s notice that ALL of their targets are Black—none are white. Driving the Jewish onslaught are such con artists as “lawyer” Alan Dershowitz, the ADL’s spymaster[2] Jonathan Greenblatt, political hack Ari Fleischer, and news actor Jake Tapper. How unsurprising that all of their megaphones fell silent at the exposure of a photo that Jews have been keeping secret for more than 20 years! The photograph shows The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as a guest at the White House in Washington, DC, at the invitation of the father of the modern REPUBLICAN PARTY, President Ronald Wilson Reagan!

Several photographs were taken of the January 4, 1984, event, which was a celebration of the release of navy pilot Lt. Robert Goodman, a Black man who had been shot down flying a bombing mission over Syria. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, while in the midst of his historic campaign for the presidency, brought a delegation with him to Syria to appeal to President Hafez Al-Assad to release the pilot on humanitarian grounds. And several of those in that delegation attested to The Minister’s “significant and vital role” in freeing the prisoner of war. Chicago attorney Thomas N. Todd said that Minister Farrakhan was a “substantial part of the success” of Mr. Jackson’s Syria mission.[3]

So Farrakhan was not simply at the White House as some bystander: he had actually carried out American foreign policy where the United States government had failed its own captured officer.

Now, back to the Jews, who played no role in saving our brother’s life, but an immense role in attacking both Jackson and Farrakhan: Their list of damnable “anti-Semites” who have met with Farrakhan has now been substantially whitened, and now includes two “anti-Semitic” presidents!

Ronald W. Reagan

George H. W. Bush, future president

Edwin Meese, Counselor to the President

Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of Defense

James Baker, Chief of Staff

John Poindexter, National Security Council staffer

David Gergen, Assistant for Communications

George Shultz, Secretary of State

 

All of those white men met and shook hands with, thanked, and congratulated The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

The Jewish language is clear and unconditional about such “Farrakhan photo felons” when they are Black. Greenblatt saw the Obama photo, and even though Obama, as senator, had previously “denounced the bigotry of Farrakhan,” the Jewish attack dog commanded that former President Obama “do so again.” The ADL’s top bigot said of Rep. Danny Davis, D-Ill., “It is unfortunate that the congressman apparently can’t muster up the courage to denounce Farrakhan…” Referring to Keith Ellison’s meeting with Farrakhan, David Bernstein, the president of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, said on Twitter, “It’s very disturbing….Dining with hatemongers is not ok.” The ridiculous Alan Dershowitz blathered that that Obama–Farrakhan photo was “a really horrible truth,” and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer tweeted what amounted to a 21st-century runaway slave advertisement: “Here are 21 members of Congress today who belonged to the CDC in 2005. Why not ask them if meeting with anti-Semites is ok?”

Certainly, the publication of this photo of the Reagan–Farrakhan Rose Garden festivities has proved that two white presidents have crossed that Jewish line. Former President Bush is still alive and—just like former President Obama—must answer for his “anti-Semitism.” Who will get to him first—Greenblatt, Dershowitz, Bernstein, or Fleischer?

The answer, of course, is that all these Jewish hypocrites will prove for the millionth time that the Jewish leadership are some of America’s most accomplished racists. They and we know that the charge of “anti-Semitism” is nothing more than a historical hatchet to “justify” their true racist aims. They have avoided supporting real liberation movements by inventing “anti-Semitism” where none exists and then creating a fake outrage around that false charge. They are a one-trick pony and the tactic as an effective bludgeon against their enemies has run its course. In The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2, Jewish scholar Marc Dollinger explains why Jewish leaders chose to use this tactic against the Nation of Islam:

“Despite the Nation of Islam’s political marginalization, [Jews] still feared [Elijah] Muhammad. His charismatic personality, willingness to confront racism in the most dramatic rhetorical terms and ability to inspire even non-believing African American listeners concerned Jewish leaders. The Nation of Islam leader, they feared, could earn the respect of his black audiences, even if they chose not to join his movement.”

Amazingly, Dollinger does not claim that Mr. Muhammad or the NOI evidenced any form of “anti-Semitism”—he says that the Jewish leaders “feared” the Hon. Elijah Muhammad’s “willingness to confront racism”! Jewish organizations, then, worked tirelessly against the NOI— an organization they knew was not anti-Jewishto STOP THE BLACK MUSLIMS FROM CONFRONTING RACISM! And this destructive, anti-Black policy—described by Dollinger—is how Jews in America have thoroughly earned the title “Synagogue of Satan.”

Your Jewish “friends” Greenblatt, Dershowitz, Bernstein, and Fleischer will run like Ussain Bolt to hide from that ugly truth. It is time for Blacks to finally free themselves from this historical deception and these incorrigible deceivers, lest we fall for their tricks yet again.

7 Shocking Quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is the victim of IDENTITY THEFT. White America was so desperate to have a Black leader guide its restless and awakening Blacks back into subservience that it took a gifted soldier of truth and put words in his mouth and made him everything white Americans wanted him to be. Let us FINALLY look at who Dr. King actually is. Dr. King evolved into a strategic thinker and planner—and a razor-sharp critic of white supremacy. He did not mince words: his speeches were a clear and concise damnation of a SYSTEM that had destroyed his people. His last speech the night before his murder in Memphis on April 4th, 1968—I Have Been To the Mountaintop—has been heavily edited and redacted by whites to censor and evade his instructions to Blacks: to establish an ECONOMIC foundation for their freedom. He said nothing of voting or integration; he said that when we Blacks feel pain, “we must kind of redistribute the pain” in the form of boycotts and the use of Black spending power as a weapon for our own advancement. He termed it “economic withdrawal.” 

King said and did more. Even as today’s negro leaders shake and shiver at the name FARRAKHAN, Dr. King sought out meetings with Minister Farrakhan’s Teacher, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He spoke highly of and openly met with Black figures that frightened the hell out of white people: Stokely Carmichael, Malcolm X, and Muhammad Ali. Indeed, Dr. King emerged from his 1966 meeting with the Hon. Elijah Muhammad with these words:

 “We suffer domestic colonialism….We must achieve self-determination.”

Other quotes from Dr. King would make white people RE-THINK the gigantic statue they have put up in his memory, and the 900+ streets named after King in 42 states and Puerto Rico. Here are 7 SHOCKING Quotes by Dr. King:

  1. Dr. King asked, “Why does white America delude itself, and how does it rationalize the evil it retains?” He said white people’s belief in the fairness of America “is a fantasy of self-deception and comfortable vanity….There aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege.
  2. White Americans left the Negro on the ground and in devastating numbers walked off with the aggressor. It appeared that the white segregationist and the ordinary white citizen had more in common with one another than either had with the Negro.”
  3. To his friend Harry Belafonte he said: “I’ve come to the realization that I think we may be integrating into a burning house.”
  4. King’s critique of Jewish behavior in the ghetto was stinging: “We were living in a slum apartment owned by a Jew and a number of others, and we had to have a rent strike. We were paying $94 for four run-down, shabby rooms, and we would go out on our open housing marches on Gage Park and other places and we discovered that whites with five sanitary, nice, new rooms, apartments with five rooms, were paying only $78 a month. We were paying 20 percent tax. The Negro ends up paying a color tax, and this has happened in instances where Negroes actually confronted Jews as the landlord or the storekeeper.
  5. If you thought King had faith in the “political process”: “Throughout our history, laws affirming Negro rights have consistently been circumvented by ingenious evasions which render them void in practice. Laws that affect the whole population—draft laws, income-tax laws, traffic laws—manage to work even though they may be unpopular: but laws passed for the Negro’s benefit are so widely unenforced that it is a mockery to call them laws.
  6. King’s systems analysis could only frighten the American elite: “The trouble is that we live in a failed system. Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level….That’s the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we’re going to have to change the system.
  7. Even Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., conceded, “there are points at which I see the necessity for temporary separation as a temporary way-station to a truly integrated society.

These quotes show that Dr. King could not be counted upon to carry the failed empowerment strategies promoted by the white financiers of the American Civil Rights Movement. King evolved to understand that the white and Jewish “philanthropists” that paid for Blacks’ INTEGRATION achieved their own status of wealth and power not through voting or integration but through the building of an ECONOMIC community infrastructure, on which they built independent institutions to serve and protect their own ethnic communities. Could King be any clearer than these words from his LAST and MOST DANGEROUS speech?

“But not only that, we’ve got to strengthen black institutions. I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown and deposit your money in Tri-State Bank. We want a ‘bank-in’ movement in Memphis. Go by the savings and loan association. I’m not asking you something that we don’t do ourselves at SCLC. Judge Hooks and others will tell you that we have an account here in the savings and loan association from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. We are telling you to follow what we are doing. Put your money there. You have six or seven black insurance companies here in the city of Memphis. Take out your insurance there. We want to have an ‘insurance-in.'”

“Now these are some practical things that we can do. We begin the process of building a greater economic base. And at the same time, we are putting pressure where it really hurts. I ask you to follow through here.”

As Dr. King began his last campaign it was a decidedly ECONOMIC in nature. So much so he called it the “POOR PEOPLE’s CAMPAIGN.” As he went through the nation to organize it he gave this shocking 169-word analysis:

 

“At the very same time that America refused to give the Negro any land, through an act of congress our government was giving away millions of acres of land in the West and the Midwest, which meant that it was willing to undergird its white peasants from Europe with an economic floor. But not only did they give the land, they built land grant colleges with government money to teach them how to farm. Not only that, they provided county agents to further their expertise in farming. Not only that, they provided low interest rates in order that they could mechanize their farms. Not only that, today many of these people are receiving millions of dollars in federal subsidies not to farm and they are the very people telling the Black man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps. This is what we are faced with and this is a reality. Now, when we come to Washington in this [Poor People’s] campaign, we’re coming to get our check.

Let us honor Dr. King FROM NOW ON—not by putting up more statues and naming streets for him, but by actually taking and following through on his economic advice!

BONUS QUOTES: In his famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” (April 16, 1963) Dr. King signaled his utter disgust with the white liberals that he had been told he could trust to “help” aid in Black advancement:

“I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice…”

On the Vietnam war:

“And I am sad to say that the nation in which we live is the supreme culprit.…God didn’t call America to engage in a senseless, unjust war, as the war in Vietnam. And we are criminals in that war. We have committed more war crimes almost than any nation in the world, and I’m going to continue to say it…”

King said during a February 1968 trip to Mississippi,

“It didn’t cost the nation one penny to integrate lunch counters….but now we are dealing with issues that cannot be solved without the nation spending billions of dollars and undergoing a radical redistribution of economic power.”

On Uncle Toms:

“There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom. There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with their oppressors. The hammer blows of discrimination, poverty and segregation must warp and corrupt some. No one can pretend that because a people may be oppressed, every individual member is virtuous and worthy.”

In 1960, King spoke on Black Education and school integration:

“White people view Black people as inferior. A large percentage of them have a very low opinion of our race. People with such a low view of the Black race cannot be given free reign and put in charge of the intellectual care and development of our boys and girls. I don’t see school integration successfully happening right now and being beneficial.…It will be disastrous.”


 

The BEST Religion

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam teaches a profound lesson about THE BEST RELIGION:
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “Brother, the best religion is, ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.’ When you look at all of the teachings of Jesus, you can boil it down to this basic principal, ‘Do unto others.’”

And when we look at the essence of all religions we find this “Golden Rule” to be the common thread:

 

African Traditional Proverb • One going to take a pointed stick to pinch a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts.

 

Baha’i Faith • Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself.

 

Buddhism • Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.

 

Christianity • Do unto others as you would have them so unto you.

 

Confucianism • Tse-kung asked, Is there one word that can serve as a principle of conduct for life? Confucius replied, It is the word ‘shu’ — reciprocity. Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.

 

Hinduism • Do naught to others which, if done to thee, would cause thee pain: this is the sum of duty.

 

Islam • No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.

 

Jainism • In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.

 

Judaism • What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man. That is the entire Law, all the rest is commentary.

 

Shintoism • Be charitable to all beings, love is the representative of God.

 

Sikhism • Don’t create enmity with anyone as God is within everyone.

 

Taoism • Regard your neighbor’s gain as your gain and your neighbor’s loss as your loss.

 

Zoroastrianism • Whatever thou dost not approve for thyself, do not approve for anyone else. When thou hast acted in this manner, thou art righteous.

The Two Messiahs

For thousands of years the world of religion and some in government have been awaiting the arrival of the Messiah, one on whose shoulders a new government would be placed and through whom a new world order would emerge. The person identified as the Messiah is the most important person in Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.

Mystery has surrounded both the identity and the arrival of the Messiah. Believing that a Messiah was on the horizon to replace him, King Herod, the “king of the Jews,” under the authority of Rome, was so protective of his throne that he killed his own son because he viewed his offspring as a threat to his kingship. Referring to Herod’s Jewishness, the Roman emperor Augustus reportedly joked, “It was safer to be Herod’s swine than his son” (Macrobius, Saturnalia, 2:4:11). Herod then issued orders that all first-born male children of Bethlehem were to be killed as well. His main objective was to kill the Messiah, thereby extending his own longevity as ruler.

Two thousand years later, the Government of the United States of America, along with the leadership of the Jewish community, has been obsessed with the advent of a modern-day Messiah, someone who would end the world of White Supremacy and global Jewish hegemony. The Jews, represented by the ADL, entered into a pact with the U.S. Government, represented by the FBI under the leadership of J. Edgar Hoover and later Director William Webster, to identify and destroy the one who they feared would emerge as the Black Messiah. (The Jewish Onslaught; The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, vol. 2; <https://www.noi.org/cointelpro/>)

Definition of Messiah

What does the word Messiah mean? Who is the Messiah? Would there be one Messiah or multiple Messiahs? Where will he (they) come from? What is his (their) relationship to God? What would he (they) look like? Why should the world both rejoice and fear his (their) presence?

The word Messiah means one anointed to lead, a savior or liberator of a group who has suffered oppression; a person considered a king and a high priest. The English word Messiah is a noun derived from the Hebrew word mashach, which means “to smear with oil, anoint.” In the Abrahamic religious tradition some scriptural interpretations speak of a king who is to be sent by God, and accompanied by a high priest who is also considered a part of the messiahship.

In both the early Christian and Jewish traditions, the concept of multiple messiahs was fairly common. The Old Testament speaks of two Messiahs. In both the Book of Isaiah (chapter 53) and the Book of Zechariah (4:4) two “anointed ones” are mentioned. Zechariah foretold of a man called “the Branch.” The branch was identified as one who would sit on the throne. But seated next to the kingly “Branch” would be an anointed priest. The two anointed Messiahs would stand before “the Lord of the whole earth.” In Zechariah’s vision, the “two olive branches” stand before the Menorah, the seven- branched oil lamp that symbolized God’s spirit and presence. Each “branch” represents an aspect of two separate individuals.

In the pre-Christian pseudepigrapha (religious writings whose authorship is unknown) the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, we learn that “the Lord will raise up from Levi someone as high priest and from Judah someone as king” (Testament of Simon 7.2).

Further, according to a June 3, 2015, article in the Huffington Post titled “Waiting for the Messiahs? One, Two or Three?” written by James D. Tabor, the author questions the validity of just one Messiah to come. In his book The Jesus Dynasty, Tabor examines the concept of the two Messiahs. The topic became headline news in US News and World Report, as well as on ABC’s Good Morning America, 20/20, and Nightline.

As time progressed and as Judaism underwent a transition away from the purity of the teachings of Abraham and Moses, that tradition and the concept of multiple messiahs underwent a transition also. Aspects of that transition can be traced to the leadership of Ezra, a priest and a scribe who was placed in charge of the Jewish colony that had been under Babylonian captivity from approximately 597 BCE to 539 BCE. When the Babylonians were defeated by the Persians, the king of Persia, Cyrus the Great, allowed the Jews to return to Judea. The Persian king appointed Ezra as the new leader of the Jews. What is a factor, however, is the impact of Persian monotheism on Ezra and the Jews who had been held in captivity in Babylon. After that period a new form of Judaism emerged. Eschewing Allah’s warnings in the Quran not to change the religion or modify the scriptures, the Jews did both. They integrated aspects of the Babylonian and Persian religions into their nascent practice of Judaism. Hence, the period of Babylonian captivity becomes a pivotal point in the history of messianic interpretation.

Not only did the Jews write a new scripture with their own hands, the Talmud, they also modified the Old and New Testaments to conform to their own religio-political narrative. An aspect of that narrative included the concept of a single messiah, instead of multiple messiahs. According to the Holy Quran (9:30), for example, the Jews revered Ezra so much that they called him “The son of God.” Therefore, for some Jews, Ezra had reached the status in Judaism that Jesus had reached in Christianity.

Prior to their captivity in Babylon these half-hearted followers of Moses did not practice the teachings of Moses exclusively; they were not strict monotheists: they were practicing a form of monotheism called monolatrism, the worship of mini-gods in addition to a Supreme Being.

One group of believers who faithfully followed the teaching of Moses was called the Essenes. The Essenes were distinct from the Jews called the Sadducees and the Pharisees. (See The Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls.) The Essenes were highly influenced by the African (Egyptian) adherents of the monotheistic followers of Aton (The Mystery of the Copper Scroll of Qumran), and they were abstemious, pious, and studious. They considered the Sadducees and the Pharisees to be corrupt and sinful followers of Moses, and, quite frankly, out of their (the Essenes’) league; indeed, they were enemies. The Essenes produced the purist Biblical texts ever used for Biblical translations. The text used by the Sadducees and the Pharisees was the Masoretic Text. Our King James Version of the Bible is the byproduct of the Masoretic translation. The purer, more precise, translation of the Essene documents, known as the Qumran Scrolls, predates the Masoretic text by almost 1000 years. These were original translations and original documents written by the Essenes themselves. Therefore, many scholars consider the Masoretic text to have been corrupted (redacted), and in several passages it does not conform to the purer texts of the Qumran Scrolls.

Another distinction between the Essenes and the Sadducees/Pharisees was the latter’s support and justification of slavery (as evidenced in both the Torah and the Talmud). The Bible and the Talmud were referenced by the Jews as a justification for their control of the slave industry.

However, the more significant aspect of the distinctions between the groups has little to do with ethnicity or how they viewed each other’s religiosity. One of the main differences between the two groups has to do with how they viewed the coming Messiah. The Masoretic scholars changed the messiahship from representing two individuals to being a single Messiah.

Aaron: The First Messiah

The Essenes believed in a Messiah of Aaron and a Messiah of Israel, in addition to a Teacher of Righteousness. All three were to make a joint appearance at the end of the rule of the enemies of God. One Messiah was to be a high priest and the other was to be a king. Ironically, according to Philo of Alexandria, also known as Philo Judaeus, the first man to be anointed as the Messiah was Aaron, the brother of Moses. Philo was a Jewish priest and a proponent of Aristotle and Plato. He bears witness to the Teachings of the Nation of Islam that speak of Christianity being a man-made religion, not of divine origin. Philo was one of the key figures who merged Hellenism with Judaism and created a new religion—Christianity. Accordingly, the biblical scholars who wrote The Interpreter’s One-Volume Commentary on the Bible concluded that Philo’s goal was to make Judaism acceptable to the Greeks. However, a portion of the Jewish community never accepted this. This position is exemplified in the positions adopted by the Jews under the rule of the Maccabees.

The Maccabees were a priestly family that led a revolt against Hellenism (Hellenic influence) in 168 B.C. They founded the Hasmonean dynasty, which rebelled against the Greeks and Hellenized Jews, reasserted Judaism, and reduced the influence of Hellenism and Hellenistic Judaism throughout Judea. These actions also led to a split between the rank-and-file Jews and the orthodox or traditionalist Jews on the one hand and the Hellenized Jews on the other. The Hellenized Jews sought the favor of their Greek overlords; the religious Jews never fully accepted the rule of the Hellenized Jews because the role of a spiritual Messiah was absent: they emphasized only the role of a political leader, not that of a religious Messiah.

With the emergence of Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the newly elected Greek ruler, the persecution of the Jews increased. With this increase in Jewish persecution, a division among the Jews was further exacerbated. The rank and file and the orthodox Jews were expecting the return of two Messiahs; the Maccabees did not. The Maccabees sought political accommodation with their oppressors; the other Jews wanted complete freedom from the Greeks.

According to Dr. Leila Leah Bronner, noted Jewish author, professor, and activist (“The Jewish Messiah: A Historical Perspective”), the Jews became wary of the idea that God was going to send a savior to redeem them. The Mishna, the Midrash, and the Talmud all downplay the role of the Messiah. Further, there is no mention of the Messiah after the failure of the Bar Kochba revolt (the second Jewish revolt against the Romans in 132 CE). The rabbis place emphasis on a “Messianic Age” and a “Messianic people” instead of a Messiah per se. The rabbinic Jewish leaders began to rely less on a Supreme Being and more on the supremacy of their own being. If God abandoned them, they were going to abandon Him.

The Concept of the Messiah and the Growth of Zionism

With the emergence of the period known as the European Enlightenment in the 18th century, Jewish thinkers stressed rational thinking and de-emphasized a belief in the supernatural aspects of the Old Testament. This led to the evolution of the Reform Judaism movement, and a move away from Orthodox Judaism. With this came the abandonment of the concept of a personal Messiah and the further adoption of a belief in a messianic people. A by-product of this movement was the emergence of modern Zionism.  

The Dual Personalities of Melchizedek

Melchizedek is viewed as one of the most mysterious figures in the Old Testament. He is also viewed as the model upon which the Messiah is to be based. Melchizedek embodies a dual personage: a king and a priest. Melchizedek was the King of Salem and the “Priest of the Most High God.” Like Elijah, Melchizedek never dies and he prefigures the Christ figure of the New Testament. Melchizedek is a compound noun, combining Malachi and Zadok, or Elijah and Aaron. Malachi was a prophet and “God’s Messenger,” while Zadok, was the chief priest of Judah and a descendant of the son of Aaron. In Ugaritic mythology Salem, or Salim, is said to have been a god identified with the evening star. In the Holy Qur’an (Surah 53) we see a reappearance of that “star,” Al Najm, in its association with the cluster of stars known as the Pleiades.

God Empowers the Messiahs

What is the job of the Messiah? Where will he come from? What will he look like? Is he White, Black, Asian? According to a compilation of the character personality traits identified in the Scriptures, the Messiah will be a man of color. Daniel, Ezekiel, and John the Revelator describe him as a man with wooly (kinky) hair, an original (Black) man whose skin is the color of brass burned in an oven (black).

Daniel, Ezekiel, and John the Revelator also used the terms “Son of man,” “son of man,” and “one like a son of man” to depict the Christ figure. What is interesting is that each term has a different, yet similar, meaning, but they are also used interchangeably. One is a proper noun, one is a common noun, and one is indefinite; at the same time, they are all used to describe dual identities. The terms “son of man” and “one like a son of man” are subordinate to the “Son of man”; in addition, the term “Son of God” is used co-equally with the term “Son of Man” by some of the writers of the New Testament. In the English language they could be considered synonyms. Synonyms are words that may be spelled and pronounced differently, but mean exactly the same thing. The words “urban” and “inner city,” for example, are used as synonyms for “Black.”

In Daniel 7:13-14, the “Ancient of Days” (God) gives dominion over the earth to “one like the son of man,” and this person is also given control of the “Wheel” (the ultimate weapon of mass destruction), as described in the Book of Ezekiel, to destroy the enemies of God, and bring about the final judgment of the world.

Prophet Muhammad on the Messiah

According to the Book of Malachi the job of the Messiah is to pave the way for the coming of God. He is to teach the despised and rejected of the Western world (the American Black man and woman) the true knowledge of God. The despised and rejected, according to the Holy Qur’an (Surah 62), are akin to the illiterates who had been without the knowledge of God. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) puts it this way: “He it is Who raised among the illiterates a Messenger from among themselves, who recites to them His messages and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and the Wisdom—although they were before certainly in manifest error—And others from among them who have not yet joined them. And He is the Mighty, the Wise (H.Q. 62:2-3). Hence, the Messiah is to come from a community of people who are despised, rejected, and illiterate.

Two key figures in the Book of Malachi are Elijah and Elias. Some scholars view Elijah and Elias metaphorically and symbolically as one, and they equate the reemergence of Elijah with the return of Elijah and Elias.

Malachi says the long-awaited One is to come from the East, which, according to the Book of Habakkuk, is where God Himself would reside. He is to come to America, where the dead (“the carcass”) are. Daniel said he is to be a man of color. John the Revelator said the same. Ezekiel said the same thing, and he referred to the Messiah as “son of dust” (Ezekiel 3).

Prophet Muhammad said that “[e]ven if faith were near the Pleiades,” a non-Arab from among the illiterates would find it. (See the exegesis of Surah 62, The Congregation.) Further, according to a Hadith, the Messiah will appear at a time when the Arabs will appear to have the letter of the law and not the spirit of the law. In Surah 53, The Star is associated with the Pleiades, which is a cluster of 7 stars in the constellation Taurus the Bull. Aldebaran, considered the Eye of the Bull, is the brightest star in the constellation Taurus and is often used as a guidepost by navigators and astronomers. Al Dabaran is Arabic for “The Follower.” Taurus, by the way, is the astrological sign of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

The Pleiades, or the Seven Sisters, are sometimes associated with the cluster of stars known as the Little Dipper. The North Star lies at the end of the handle of the Little Dipper. When the slaves were trying to find their way to freedom to the North (Canada), they just had to follow the North Star. However, in order to find the North Star one had to locate the Big Dipper, an asterism of the 7 brightest stars of the constellation Ursa Major that would point the wayfarer to the Little Dipper, or the North, then to eventual freedom. Thus, to find the North Star, one would first have to find the Big Dipper. The Big Dipper would then point you to the Little Dipper.            

The Big Dipper was originally sighted in Africa, where it is seen as a drinking ladle and known as the Drinking Gourd; hence, the famous Underground Railroad code song “Follow the Drinking Gourd” exhorted Blacks seeking to escape enslavement to follow a northerly course. The following is a reference to a scene in the movie Django, where a White dentist shows up to free the enslaved Django. In the process he gives the other slaves a way out of their enslavement by following the North Star to freedom.

“As to you poor devil, so as I see it. When it comes to the subject of what to do next you, gentlemen, have two choices. One: once I am gone, you can lift that beast [horse] off the remaining speck [slave dealer], then carry him to the nearest town. Which would be 37 miles back the way you came. Or two: you can unshackle yourselves, take that rifle, put a bullet in his head, bury the two of them deep, then make your way to a more enlightened area of this country. Choice is yours. Oh, and on the off chance there are any astronomy aficionados amongst you, the North Star is that one [he points them to that direction]. Ta-ta.”

I believe the two constellations are equivalent to the two Messiahs. I further believe that Allah is using the two constellations as metaphors for two human beings—the dual Messiahs, the two Dippers, the two Sons of Man (or ones like the son of man in the Book of Daniel): two men who will lead the people to their ultimate freedom. These two men are Black men who have been taught and trained to serve as Allah’s representatives before the people. By the process of elimination, there are only two human beings that these metaphors, these synonyms, apply to: they are the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. It is my opinion that the high priest is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the worldly king is the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and in many ways their roles are interchangeable.

In the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament, the Son of man, the Christ, the Messiah, has an encounter with the Supreme Being, the Lord of the Worlds. God, while on His throne on what some refer to as a UFO or Ezekiel’s Wheel, is passing judgment on the nations of the Earth. After passing judgment He then cedes his power and authority to his Son, His Messiah. Global leadership is now in the hands of His Anointed ones.

Job Description of The Messiahs

Image of the Black Buddah of India.

If we were to create a fictional Job Description for the Messiahs, the job description would specify the following criteria, based on a compilation of requirements culled from the Scriptures:

  1. The Messiahs will come from a community of Black people who have suffered oppression (slavery, sharecropping, Jim Crow apartheid) at the hands of a strange people, in a land not theirs (America) for over 400 years.
  2. They must be Black Americans living in the West.
  3. The pigmentation of the epidermis would have to be of a dark hue (as detailed in the Books of Revelation, Ezekiel, and Daniel). However, the Black skin of the Messiahs is not unique. The Messiah figures in Buddhism, Hinduism (Krishna, the Black Hindu Christ, for example); Osiris, the Christ of the Ancient Egyptians; as well as Quetzalcoatl, the Mexican Messiah—all have been depicted as Black men imbued with Africoid features. The first physical depiction of Jesus was that of a Black child with a Black mother, the Black Madonna and Child.

    These pictures and statues are still prominently featured in many Eastern European churches today, as well as in the private prayer room of the Pope of Rome. Therefore, the Blackness of Farrakhan and Muhammad is totally in line with the Christ figures throughout history.

  4. The Messiah (Son of Man) must be able to drive a UFO, or what the Jewish scholars call a Merkabah, and use the Wheel to destroy the enemies of God.
  5. The Messiahs will make their appearance when the Arabs have the Letter of the Law but not the Spirit of the Law.
  6. They will be hated by the chief enemies of God (the Jewish leadership/Synagogue of Satan).
  7. They will perform miracles, such as the Million Man March, Dope Busters, and Justice Or Else Movement.
  8. They will teach the illiterates a knowledge of themselves and the Wisdom of the Scriptures.
  9. Must come from a family that is as old as the Earth.
  10. Must exhibit sublime moral and ethical characteristics.
  11. Must be able to exhibit justice to both Black and White people.
  12. Must be a musician, able to be in tune and in rhythm with all of humanity.
  13. Must be a Spiritual Genius.

The Messiahs are not to be played with or disrespected. In the paraphrased version of the Living Bible (Ezekiel 33:30) we learn:

Son of dust, your people are whispering behind your back. They talk about you in their houses and whisper about you at the doors, saying, “Come on, let’s have some fun! Let’s go hear him tell us what the Lord is saying.” So they come as though they are sincere and sit before you listening. But they have no intention of doing what you tell them to; they talk very sweetly about loving the Lord, but with their hearts they are loving their money. You are very entertaining to them, like someone who sings lovely songs with a beautiful voice or plays well on an instrument. They hear what you say but don’t pay any attention to it! But when all these terrible things happen to them—as they will—then they will know a prophet has been among them.

If we accept the above as the characteristics of the Messiahs, then the above can only apply to two men— Elijah Muhammad and Louis Farrakhan. No one else need apply.

Columbus Discovered The Slave Trade

NOI Research Group (NOIRG.ORG) Before Christopher Columbus was commissioned by the rulers of Portugal to sail the ocean blue in 1492, he was sailing the coast of Africa in the slave trade. It is in Africa where he very likely learned about the “New World” and the ocean currents that might get him there. The Africans had long traded amicably with the Indigenous peoples of the “New World,” and their mariners had gained knowledge of the ways and methods of distant ocean travel.

On his second trip to the New World, Columbus brought cannons and attack dogs. If a native resisted slavery, he would cut off a nose or an ear. If slaves tried to escape, Columbus had them burned alive. Other times, he sent attack dogs to hunt them down, and the dogs would tear off the arms and legs of the screaming natives while they were still alive. If the Spaniards ran short of meat to feed the dogs, Arawak babies were killed for dog food.

Columbus himself found evidence during his voyages that he was not the first to “discover” anything. He was told by the peoples of Hispaniola (Haiti) of black men who had appeared on the island before him, and they showed him what the black men had left there: lances tipped with an alloy of gold that was prevalent in West Africa’s Guinea. In Trinidad, Columbus discovered the people there with textiles and clothing identical to that which he had seen in Guinea. In actuality, Columbus’s voyages were only notable for the total destruction he had unleashed upon the Indigenous peoples of Africa and the Caribbean. One of Columbus’s marauders recorded the first rape in the New World:

“While I was in the boat I captured a very beautiful Carib woman [and] I conceived desire to take pleasure…but she did not want it and treated me with her finger nails in such a manner that I wished I had never begun. But seeing that…I took a rope and thrashed her well, for which she raised such unheard of screams that you would not have believed your ears…”

The cruelty of Columbus toward the people of the lands he invaded only escalated from there. According to his own words, quoted in The Secret Relationship Between Blacks & Jews, Vol. 1:

“They are without arms [weapons], all naked, and without skill at arms and great cowards, a thousand running away from three, and thus they are good to be ordered about, to be made to work, plant, and do whatever is wanted, to build towns and be taught to go clothed and accept our customs.”

Cities began to spring up all over the island of Hispaniola. The traffic in slaves—African and Indian—grew rapidly.  Who is Christopher Columbus and where does he come from? There is no shortage of research and scholarly speculation about Columbus’s origin. Italy, Portugal, and Spain have all laid claim to him, but there is strong speculation that he may have been a Jew. The entire book Sails of Hope, by the notorious Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal, strongly argues that Columbus was Jewish. The fact that another of Columbus’s contemporaries claimed he “talked after a practiced slave dealer” probably clinches this speculation, given that the masters of the slave trade at that time were Sephardic Jews. More evidence comes from The Most Hon. Elijah Muhammad, who wrote that Columbus was a “half-original man,” and this, we hypothesize, puts Columbus in the category of a little-known but powerful group of people called the “Lancados.” In the mid-1400s—about the time Columbus would have been born—Portuguese King Dom Manuel colonized the African coastal islands in order “to whiten the race,” as he put it. Two thousand Jews, their children, as well as their orphans went to those African islands specifically for that “whitening” purpose. They kidnapped and raped African women, and the mixed-race progeny, called Lancados, were sent into the African mainland for the express purpose of trading in Black human beings. So brazen were these light-skinned newcomers that they even implanted themselves in the local population as “African chiefs.”

Estimated Routes of Columbus’s Four Voyages

These Lancados developed the sugar trade and pioneered the slavery-intensive model for the plantation economy that would soon thereafter dominate the western hemisphere for the coming centuries. White historians hide these malevolent half-breeds under the name “Africans” when they claim that “Africans sold each other.” Columbus was probably one of these Lancados. Columbus Day has been a holiday in America since 1937. His legacy of genocide, slavery, rape, and robbery makes Columbus the perfect idol for whites. Let us join our Native American brothers and sisters and stay far, far away from these hateful Caucasian heroes, lest we forget their true nature and actual history and make the same mistake our Indian and African ancestors made in 1492 and allow the next Columbus on our shores.
