Farrakhan: Mideast-Like Revolution Headed for US

Monday, 28 Feb 2011 01:55 PM

Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Chicago-based Nation of Islam and self-avowed pal of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, contends that the revolutionary onslaught enveloping the Mideast will be coming soon to the United States. If Gadhafi were persecuted for crimes against humanity, then President George W. Bush should be, too, Farrakhan told followers Sunday in Rosemont, Ill., according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Gadhafi has ordered supporters to kill protesters as Libya has imploded with escalating demonstrations against his regime.

The 77-year-old Farrakhan, who addressed nearly 18,000 followers during a four-hour talk at the annual Saviours' Day convention, said he still counts Gadhafi among his friends, the Sun-Times reported.

After all, Farrakhan said, no leader ever gains the allegiance of 100 percent of the people. And, if Gadhafi were prosecuted for crimes against humanity, so should Bush for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he alleged.

Farrakhan, who visited Gadhafi in the 1980s and even accepted a humanitarian award from him in 1996, warned Sunday that the Mideast revolution will land in the United States sooner rather than later, the Sun-Times reported. “What you see happening there, you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door, America.”

Farrakhan added, “I hope that President Obama will remember his instructions to all nations — be careful how you attack and kill innocent people who are protesting. Take your own words into your bosom and be reminded when it comes to your home.”
