I love the men of the Nation of Islam

http://www.noi.org/

Hi Black women, now before I start singing their praises, let me emphatically say, I am not nor ever will be a member of the nation of Islam but I do appreciate all the good works they do for the black community.

At one point, they actually had a security force working in poor housing sections and crime dropped by 50%. They were using the collective black tax dollars to pay the security force but the whites who call themselves Jews had it stripped. Meaning our tax dollars could not go to pay our own people to secure our neighborhoods. However, billions of our tax dollars still go to Israel and other white European nations in order to keep white nations thriving.

There are as well, black Christian and/or just secular good men who secure our neighborhoods. In the near future, we will re-implement our tax dollars to go to securing black neighborhoods. That's the first step to prosperity ushering out the filth, and I guarantee you blacks will embrace a black law enforcement who we can trust. In fact, I believe crime will drop 80 to 90% as most righteous blacks who walk in truth are all for removing criminal scum out of the neighborhood that peace may abound.

Once peace is secured, businesses will come back in, and where there is business their is employment, and black on black dollars passing through, in, and for our well-being.

At any rate, the reason I brought up the men of the Nation of Islam is because when you see them out on the streets in their uniforms, black women do not fear being attacked verbally or physically. In fact, I think it's a good idea to buy their paper the FINAL CALL as that is supporting black on black business. They are always respectable to we black women, regardless of religion and it would do us well to pray they keep wise leadership like the Honorable Louis Farrakhan and others. They are electrifying and powerful BLACK MEN who resist the white powers that be, and this is why they are hated.

The main thing is we must support their right to be, because they have many white devilish enemies who would violate them. God help them to walk in righteousness as they have come to understand it, and to always be blessed in all the good works they do.

Persecution follows Revelation
By Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan


[Editor's note: The following text is excerpted from a March 25, 2001 speech delivered by Minister Louis Farrakhan at Mosque Maryam in Chicago, Illinois.]

In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.


In order to be successful in establishing truth, we have to be imbued with the spirit of Allah (God). Otherwise, the persecution that follows revelation will prove to be too much and we will give up the truth to seek some comfort from those who would persecute us for the sake of truth.

There is no such thing as revelation coming to a people and that revelation is not followed by persecution, insult, injury, torture and even prison or death; but those who really believe in the Message and the Messenger are imbued with a kind of spirit that no matter what persecution they receive on account of the Word, they become stronger rather than weaker; they become bolder rather than more reticent; they have the spirit of a warrior; they want to fight for the truth and fight for the establishment of a truth that would set their people free. This is why the scripture says, "Many are called but only a few are chosen." Many will know it is the truth and love it, but they will not have the strength to stand up for it under persecution or even unto death.

This particular prophecy in Isaiah is a forecast of The One that would come at the end of the world of Satan. Isaiah says, "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord hath anointed me to preach glad tidings unto the meek." This scripture is talking about the Black man and woman of America who are meek in terms of how we face the onslaught of our enemies; in terms of our inability to cast off the yoke of our oppressor. The glad tidings to the meek is that the end of your oppression has arrived and the end of your oppressor has arrived and, the most beautiful part of this is that the God Who is prophesied to come has come and is present and chooses a foolish people. Well, that is us. I am not trying to put us down, but we are definitely rather foolish. It is not your fault we were made foolish by our enemies, but the Book says that He would choose a people who were once a great people, but are no people at all now. He says, "Thou shalt no more be the tail. Thou shalt be the head."

As a Black person, Negro, Colored or African American, whatever you want to call yourself, you have such a poor view of yourself, though you pray more than others, you go to church more than others, you shout more than others, you believe more deeply than others. Yet, you do not believe that Allah (God) would come to you, that He would choose you to bring a revelation that He has kept from the wise and the prudent men and the rulers of this world. Since you think like that, it is very difficult for you to see your value in this time.

No people in history have ever undergone what we have undergone. We have shown a tremendous ability to bounce back from the worst form of slavery and oppression. This tells us, as the Bible teaches, that you were not chosen for your righteousness. We are of the righteous, but we are not acting that way. The scripture says that you were chosen out of the furnace of affliction, because the furnace was designed for you to purify you and me, and to make us the standard by which value would be measured. This is why the Bible says, "God's coming would be as a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap." You are considered to be like gold that you find in the depth of the earth, but gold has to be purified of the dross that is on it so it can shine and become a standard of value.

When Allah (God) chose the Arabs, He chose a people that were nothing. They were ignorant, divided and steeped in filth, yet they were the choice of Allah (God) to raise Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from among them and give them the greatest revelation that had been in the world up to that time"”"”the Qur'an. After this Book was revealed, Islam captured the known world. Then, the West was discovered by the Europeans and Europeans have built a world now that has literally overtaken the world of Islam. Yet, Allah (God) says in the Qur'an that,'"He sent His Messenger with the guidance and the true religion that He may make it overcome the religions"”all of them." Islam has been overcome by the powers of the western world. Why is that? It is because the Book (Qur'an) is here, the revelation is here, but the real essence of the meaning of the Book is yet to come. The Book is designed to destroy Satan's world. The Book is designed to prepare the believers in this Book for the Hereafter, which the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said means "Here on this earth after the destruction of the power of the wicked to rule." A whole New World will come to the earth.


The most powerful country on earth is the United States of America. It would be foolish for us to think that the prophets could see into the future and not see America in their prophetic utterances. It is a nation in which is another nation, an entire people swallowed up by another people and are oppressed by that powerful people, and that people refuse to let you go or give you justice.

You have had to fight, bleed and die just to go to the toilet with White people, to eat at a lunch counter with White people, to sleep in a hotel or motel with White people. You have had to die to have the right to enter a boardroom of Corporate America and you still do not have what you need to be free. You refuse to believe that the rulers of America are your open enemies. This is because you do not know what an enemy is.

Everything in nature has a natural enemy. An enemy is one who would deprive you of life, freedom, justice, equality, the pursuit of happiness, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, love, peace, brotherhood and unity. Who is the natural enemy of Allah (God) and the natural enemy of the Black man?

I have dogs at our farm and I have cats. At first, they were natural enemies and would fight each other. But since some of them grew together, the cat can lie down with the dog, but I have other dogs that have never had that experience, and if I let those dogs out of the kennel, they would kill every cat in sight; they would kill the sheep. So, enemies can grow together and when they get used to each other, they forget that they are enemies, but I watch when it is time to eat and the dog that appeared to be a friend of the cat will fight the cat. The dog gets confused sometimes, and I see him going around the female cat. He can't do anything, but the tomcat does not like that. It seems like they get a little upset and the nature comes out in them because they are natural enemies. It should be easy for you to understand that you have had an enemy in order for you to be deprived of what it takes to have happiness, freedom, justice, equality, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, love, peace, happiness and unity. The minute we try to unite, there is always somebody from the outside that feels threatened by our unity; they break it up.


Your enemy never wants to see you independent of him. He must always be the master and you must always be the servant. And when you try to escape being a servant, he finds devious ways to get you back under his wings. He makes you an offer that you cannot refuse"”an offer in money backed by guns and gangsters. You do not have an army and the lure of money gets you. So, Beatrice Foods is now back in the hands of Caucasians. Motown is owned by Caucasians. Ultra Sheen is owned by Caucasians. BET (Black Entertainment Television) has been taken over by Caucasians. Russell Simmons struggled with Def Jam records, Def Jam Comedy, and they gave him an offer. Now, he works for them. Mr. Bob Johnson, the former owner of BET, now works for Viacom. He received more than a billion dollars, but what is the dollar? It is a piece of paper with a White man's face on it and the value of that paper is going down every day that we live, so what you have is nothing. They call it a partnership, but all the while they are trying to find a way to take it from you. Why? Because independence is too much for you. You will begin to think that you are equal to them and you must never think that. In their mind, you, your children, your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren must always be servants to your former slavemasters and their children.

You may say, "Well, we are the enemies of ourselves." Allah (God) did not make you that way. White people made you that way. Allah (God) made a man in His own image and after His own likeness and unless you are what Allah (God) made you, you are exactly what the White man made you and he made you a nigger, a coon, a shine, a ham bone, a colored boy, a worthless nothing. The sad thing is, that is the way we think about ourselves. That is why it is so easy for you, as a brother, to shoot down your own brother, because you do not see him as your brother. If he doesn't wear the same color, if he doesn't have the same sign, if he doesn't live in the same neighborhood, then he is something different from you. That is ignorance and that ignorance allows the enemy to feed you guns, feed you drugs, and make you the number one killer of yourself and your people.

You have got an enemy, brother, but I want to acquaint you with your friend.

Thank you.

Hi Black women here is just one quick source analyzing the SECURITY FORCE OF NOI. I didn't have time to get the archives from NOI which tell the truth about how our tax dollars were not allowed to go to NOI. However, here is a source analyzing NOI and the security forces black men sought to establish to curb violence in our neighborhood.

Mind you, it's just a source, for the real deal I'll put NOI's own words up next week so you can see for yourself what really happened.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
community self-policing efforts focusing specifically on two cases: Youth Patrol programs of the late 1960s and the Nation of Islam Housing and Urban Development Security Patrol Program in the early 1990s. Understanding these complementary cases will help to establish the assets and deficits of such programs as they attempt to curb violence in inner-city America.
When researchers and the popular press reflect on inner city violence, many ignore or sideline grassroots, peaceful, and youth-led programs as ineffective or unimportant. A deeper understanding of these communities leads to a different point of view. While there may always be a need for a government-authorized force, these institutions are, on their own, unfit to contain violence in the inner cities of the 1960s and today. In fact, some analysts have concluded that when it comes to collective violence and protest, the police often do more harm than good (Bergesen 1982; Berg and Perez 1999; National Advisory Commission 1968). Although policing practices have changed since the "escalated force" orientation ruled in the 1960s (McPhail, McCarthy, and Schweingruber 1997), resentment toward the police is so deeply embedded in many urban communities, that even well-intentioned government work is often interpreted otherwise (National Advisory Comission 1968; Gale 1996). This communication barricade, however, may be alleviated by programs driven by the grassroots that focus on non-violence and youth involvement.

The two programs I propose to investigate were unusual as policing efforts because they were organized and led by the communities they served, they championed peaceful means of persuasion to stop violence, and they recognized the youth as a key to success. Youth Patrols were developed collaboratively by concerned citizens and police in response to racial riots in the late 1960s (Knopf 1970). Youths were organized to calm tensions as they filtered through their community during potentially explosive moments. In part because of their intimate understanding of their communities, the youth patrols were successful in preventing a number of riots. The Youth Patrols came under criticism partly because some saw them as puppets of the police and partly because they disbanded. In my research I will try to show how these groups worked toward a goal shared by the police but were not controlled by them. Second, I will show how outside forces and lack of funding destroyed the Youth Patrols program rather than a lack of interest on the part of affected communities.

Although the violence of the 1990s differs in key ways from earlier periods, a crucial question remains: Can community based policing help to reduce violence? The Nation of Islam security patrols, created through collaboration between community leaders and the department of Housing and Urban Development, offers a more recent example of grass-roots, peaceful, and youth-focused policing programs (US News and World Report 1994; Los Angeles Times 1991; Star Tribune 1993). These unarmed security patrols were trained in deterring violence and sought to develop trust from the residents of the housing projects. As a result of the patrols efforts, gangs, gunrunners, and drug dealers sought new areas to terrorize. Though the NOI security patrols program has been criticized for both its short life in some cities and specific cases of ineffectiveness, I will show that external factors were the main causes of its early demise.

Beyond questions regarding how and why these two programs came to an end, there are several other central concerns that can be illuminated by this comparative case study. First, how exactly were these programs able to be effective without any weapons? Second, under what conditions were the programs successful and what conditions posed greater problems for them? How were youth incorporated into each program and how did the youth contribute to the successes and failures of each? How did these programs work with the police without sacrificing their own vision? Finally, what are appropriate roles for these community groups and what should be left to the police? Coordination between the two groups without dominance is essential to success.

METHODOLOGY

The data for this project will be derived mainly from printed sources produced while the two programs were functioning. The most important source for the 1960s Youth Patrols is a massive archive of newspaper articles that were collected by the Lemberg Center for the Study of Violence, which operated at Brandeis University from 1967-1974 (Lemberg Center 1968; Baskin et al, 1971). The Lemberg Center Archives were recently relocated to the University of Notre Dame. I will have full access to articles reporting the activities of Youth Patrols, as well as commentary on their success and failure. In addition, I will have access to the background work of Terry Knopf (a research associate at the Lemberg Center) who published the singular article on the youth patrols (1970). Although Knopf compiled a great deal of information about the Youth Patrols, there is a great deal of data in the Lemberg Archive that was not encompassed into her research. The final source of data regarding the Youth Patrols are a series of transcribed interviews conducted by the Lemberg Center from 1967-1968 with city leaders and activists. Some of these people were directly involved with the Youth Patrols and provide important insights into their workings.

I will match this reserve of information on the Youth Patrols with information on the Nation of Islam Security Patrols. Although the data is not yet intact, compiling it will be a relatively easy task given the recency of the effort. In fact, much of the data (both from national news sources and local outlets in cities where NOI patrols operated) can be collected via the Lexis-Nexis database. A second source will be the collection of articles, speeches, interviews, and editorials regarding the security patrols that the Nation of Islam headquarters publishes. In particular, The Final Call, the NOI's newspaper, will provide important information about Security Patrols as they developed. Since the Nation of Islam headquarters are in Chicago, I will schedule visits to collect some of these materials. These materials will provide the philosophy, vision, and account of the security patrols, written by the people who created the program.

Through these sources, I will be able to thoroughly analyze my research questions: How have and how can grassroots, nonviolent, and youth-led initiatives contribute to reducing violent crime in the inner cities of the United States? A thorough search through the collected sources will unveil a qualitative cache of examples, solutions, and problems surrounding the Youth Patrols and the NOI Security Patrols. After I have complied and analyzed all the data, I will organize all the information, findings, and conclusions into a cohesive report.

That question comes from a man that also admires greatly the way in which NOI operates but can't see himself being a member. I did attend their services (Mosque #7) at least once.

Hi OurEmpowerment, the reason I could never join NOI is because the voice and status of the woman is restricted. For women who are of NOI Allah bless them if that's the route they choose to go, but I prefer equality as we equally are affected by our 2 arch enemies. The white racist fiend, and the colored boy treacherous faction within who lays prostrate for the white trainer's to walk upon. They both are an abomination before God and both the male and female are equally needed to 'aid in obtaining black self-rule.'

What about you? What are your reasons?
I'm straight-up brainwashed.

I love God, and was taught to believe as a Christian, my very fundamental/conservative values are very much in accord with most other fundamentally conservative religions (christian or otherwise).

I'm not into radical change of the basic principles of life, like God, Nature, Good/Evil, Mankind, freewill, Family, and interconnecting structures facilating all of the above.

So I guess, If I was born NOI that would have been great. NOI, as an organization has proven to me, way beyond a shadow of doubt, that they love God, respects Jesus, although they give the title of Prophet to someone else. I love how they honor, obey, and trust in God, his laws (via Koran and Bible) and the Black family.

Again, the fundamental aspects of all religions are attractive to me, however NOI is the only organization that pratices a religion and has a particular focus on the Black family. Hebrew Isrelites are cool too in that way, but much of their teachings (as I have heard them) are too rooted on faith and appear to challenge common logic, which I believe is the basis for our understanding of the will of God.

I'm a man that would want 10 children if I had the right wife, such a thought is frown upon in America except in fundamental circles (orthodox jews, oldlaw mormans, armish, hebew isrealites, and zealous muslims).

Even that group, 'The MOVE Organization' is very impressive, although it has nothing specifically to do with religion, I even like the fact that everyone has the last name Africa, although I was quite surprise to learn that it was started by a White man.

Hi Our Empowerment, yes I understand where you are coming from, albeit, I have a problem with the term 'conservative' as white racist 'traditionalist' have sullied that term to mean themselves when nothing and I do mean nothing could be further from the truth.

What I mean is, they are 'racist traditionalists' or as the Bible would define 'racism,' 'demon possession.' ALL WHITES were bred in this demonic spirit albeit not all act thereon, just the MAJORITY.

As for the doctrine of NOI, yes it takes getting used to. Albeit, there is much truth therein. I definitely appreciate their teachings with regard to the YAKOB THEORY.

I too, like the BLACK/HEBREW ISRAELITES and pray for their suffering in Israel as they met the white counterpart of Russian Ashkenazi descendants. They have made their lives a living hell over in Israel.

As shown from the satanic actions of whites, all matters revolve around BLACK AND WHITE.

That is, whites still retain the wealth from enslavement. Whites retain 100% rule over the wealth, resources, tax dollars of America.

Whereas, righteous blacks fight to get white rule off of every aspect of our well-being for they have repeatedly shown they are incapable of being righteous, fair, and just.

Remember it was BLACK POWER that made America multicultural. Whites resisted, and it was white's leader Johnson who while signing the CIVIL RIGHTS LAW proclaimed, 'Democrats would lose the whites of the south' and so they did, right along with the whites of the north, east, west, southwest, northwest, and every other area. Mind you these are whites all professing to be 'Christians' when in reality they are 'satanists' who NOI and every other black organization rightly opposes.

Not only whites calling themselves christians but the white descendants of Russian/Ashkenazi's calling themselves jews and whites calling themselves whatever all walk in the same demonic spirit of racism and all must be withstood as they mean us no good as a people. Their greatest ally is their subservient, ignorant, colored proselytes worshipping at their feet and these must also be demolished if blacks are to prevail against white treachery.

I said all that to say this, the doctrine of NOI is fine for them as they act on their doctrine of goodwill towards blacks, just as white satanists act on their demonic doctrine of arrogance, lies, deceit, hate, murder, thievery, and retain 100% control over the tax dollars of blacks, over the resources of Africa of which they use to run ALL the white nations.

This evil must be destroyed. NOI and BLACK NATIONALISTS, BLACK HEBREWS, ETC., ARE THE FORCES OF TRUTH WHO WE SHOULD UNITE WITH AND WITHSTAND OUR ONE COMMON ENEMY.

As long as their doctrine doesn't force me to conform, then they are alright with me.
I love ALL mankind. That's not my argument however, I can't say I agree in some instances. I love the discipline (many areas of their lives), but why are some NOI men so emotional? I have a friend that's in the NOI and he has stressed interest in me on many occassions, but I don't date outside of my faith for I am a Christian. He was once a Christian, but he focused on the Christian and not the Christ (his example of righteous living) and got side track in his belief. I care a great deal for him, actually I love him, but he struggles with his hearts desires. I go to a bookstore and there he is...I go to the mall and there he is smiling in the distance. I go to the supermarket and there he is at the end of the isle looking at me grinning. I don't get! One day he actually mocked me because he thought I smiled to much and questioned why I was always so happy. He said he had no peace around me (at first), but I have much peace inside and he envies me for that. One minute he wants me around the next minute he has this wall up. I told him on several occassions "You are forbidden fruit" and I can't manage your presence at this time. He agreed, but there is a love between us that is indescriable. I thought it was lust, but something spiritual is there. When I pray, I pray for him and I have seen visions of him changing physically etc and months later I see him and what I saw in the visions came to past. I say I love a man that's a part of the NOI. I love his discipline, his smile, I believe I am able to build the KING in him, however I don't like the fact that some of them are emotionally unstable (I know why, but I won't elaborate)(to avoid any debates). I just don't see much peace in alot of the men in the NOI. I believe that God (the beginning & the end) rules and I beleive that Jesus Christ is Lord (it's my faith), and I love ALL people, yet I don't like to see him tormented like this. Have you guys ever experienced this?

~Yes, something similar. For him to see you as a barrier to peace is not good, and he means it. Just pray for him from a distance as you have been. You can have brotherly/sisterly love between you. You two don't seem to be equally yoked --- faithwise and in your general dispositions. You may not want to ignore too many red flags.~
quote:

I believe I am able to build the KING in him,


You can't build anything in a man that's not already there.

If you perceive that there is potentially a King in him ... then that's something you need to respect about him ... rather than what you think you can do to him.

quote:

I just don't see much peace in alot of the men in the NOI.


No black man in his right mind is full of peace. Especially when the woman who supposedly loves him is determined to personally shred what it is that makes him who is.

Generally, it's simple. A man who perceives himself at war is not sitting in the pews smiling. A black woman who truly loves him should respect that.

It's absurd:

I love the Kingliness of this man ... and I'm going to change him if given half a chance.

Absolutely absurd.
