THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN: IRAN PRESS CONFERENCE, NOV. 8, 2018 (Full Conf. https://youtu.be/mOB3vHH56eA)
“What do you think about U.S. foreign policy in [the] Middle East?”): When you are a drug addict, you say whatever you need to say, do whatever you need to do, to satisfy your addiction. The Middle East is rich, rich, rich with oil. And any great industrial nation is in need of the fuel that fuels the industry of that nation. America and England and others have always wanted access to the oil of this region, and their foreign policy is aimed at that objective.
In Iran, Mohammad Mossadegh, in a democratically fostered election, became the head of Iran, and he wanted the oil that comes from the earth in Iran to be of benefit to every citizen of Iran to give those citizens a decent quality of life. So the policy of my country became the idea to get Mossadegh out of the way, which a CIA plot did overthrow Mossadegh and give you in his place the Shah of Iran. Through the Shah of Iran the oil became a possession of America and the west, and the Shah was rich and powerful; and those that went along were rich, but the Iranian people suffered. People who did not like what was going on were persecuted, put to death, and among them was a man named Khomeini. He was exiled from his home into Turkey and France and Syria and Iraq, but 39 years ago the students erupted, because while he was away he was making cassette tapes and spreading his word and the word was taking root in the Iranian people and the Iranian Revolution began.
Now, if we fast-forward to 2018, the policy of our government as brought to Saudia Arabia by President Trump, who asked the king of Arabia, King Salman, to call all the Sunni nations together in Riyadh and he would come and address them. And when President Trump went to Riyadh, I saw him with pictures of new jet fighter planes, showing it to the king. And then they announced a $110 billion-dollar sale of weapons to Saudi, the United Arab Emirates, billions of dollars for weapons. But if you listen carefully to his speech, he was making toxic the division between Sunni and Shia and aiming those weapons subtly toward Iran and then openly saying to all of those nations they should reject their brother, Iran.
My Teacher, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, taught me years ago that the policies of our government would bring about a war in the Middle East that would be a trigger to the greatest war that has ever been, the War of Armageddon, spoken of in the Bible. [40:33] My teacher wrote an article warning America in a time of great confusion over who is going to be president—either a Democratic president or a Republican—and we saw that played out two years ago. And the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that we were living in that which is called the lull before the storm. No matter who wins the election, that President would have to guide America through the most difficult time in world affairs. Mr. Trump is that leader today. And Elijah Muhammad taught me that I should say to him: you would be wise, Mr. Trump, to delay the storm as long as you can. Because the longer the storm is delayed is to not only America’s advantage but is to the advantage of the world.
These sanctions are the predicate for a new war. A reporter asked my teacher, “Is America going to remain in the Middle East?” And my teacher said, America is going to come out of the Middle East. And when they asked about war, he said yes, there would be war. And he said bloodshed in this area would be much. I am begging our president and the government that supports him to be very, very careful because if the trigger of war in the Middle East is pulled by you using your surrogates at the insistence of Israel, then the war will trigger another kind of war, which will bring China, Russia, all of the nations into a war. And it bothers me to say this to you, Mr. President, but the war will end America as you know it. So when these Iranians chant “death to America, death to Israel,” no chant can bring about your death, but it is your policies that are eroding trust for you in the world, favor for you in the world. And now you’re pulling apart, confused. And if you do this, you will bring about—not the Iranian chant—you will bring about the death of the greatest nation that has been on this earth in the last six thousand years. I am a warner to you. I am a friend to America, not an enemy. But if you do not heed the warning and correct your path, death will come." ~ The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan (Read Full Transcript https://noirg.org/articles/minister-louis-farrakhan-iranian-sanctions-satan-and-suffering-of-the-righteous/)
