Farrakhan Warns of Armageddon if U.S. Retaliates

Monday, 17 September 2001 12:00 AM

Farrakhan is the leader of the black Muslim separatist movement Nation of Islam and the architect of the 1995 Million Man March in Washington, D.C.

In a speech Sunday at a Chicago mosque, Farrakhan implied that U.S. foreign policy is to blame for last weeks terrorist attacks on Washington and New York. He called on American officials to summon "the courage to look at the foreign policy" and asked if the policies have "produced this danger and hatred toward America."

He described the events of last week as a "dark hour in American and world history." He defended the Palestinians celebrating in the streets after the terrorist attacks because they have "sustained injustice since 1948," which refers to the year Israel became a state.

"They dance in the streets not because they have no feeling for American life, they dance because they wanted America to feel what they feel."

According to Farrakhan, the terrorists that struck America are the product of "despair and hopelessness."

"This is what causes children to strap themselves with bombs. They care nothing for their lives. They want others to feel the pain of what they live with everyday."

He then accused the American government and media of unfairness towards Muslims. He noted that convicted Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy McVeigh professed to be a Christian, yet the U.S. did not fear all Christians.

"Even though his crime was the most horrific committed up until that time, no one said Christian Timothy McViegh [actually an atheist], they just said Timothy McVeigh," he noted. He called McVeigh's actions "un-Christian like" and he declared the attacks last week on the US to be "un-Muslim like."

He said Muslims throughout the world have no quarrel with the citizens of America, only its foreign policy. He believes these are policies "that the American people know nothing about."

"A better foreign policy of America would defeat terrorism forever in the world," he declared.
