Farrakhan, author of the the name "gutter religion" for Judiasm, endorses Barack:
"...Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Sunday that presidential candidate Barack Obama is the "hope of the entire world" that the U.S. will change for the better.
"A black man with a white mother became a savior to us," he told the crowd of mostly followers. "A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall." (source)
And this in conjunction with former concerns about Barack's church.
"...During an interview titled "Guidance and Wisdom for 2008" with the Final Call News online edition, a Nation of Islam (NOI) publication, Farrakhan expressed his views on Obama, advanced his separatist agenda, and made threats against America. Some notable verbiage uttered by Louis Farrakhan is included for your discernment:
"Barack Obama has been very careful not to position himself as Reverend Jesse Jackson or Reverend Al Sharpton as a promoter of "The Black Cause." He has been groomed, wisely so, to be seen more as a unifier, rather than one who speaks only for the hurt of Black people."
"The (U.S.) government's aim has now come to the point of execution: It is an Executive Decision, at the highest order, that Black youth are a danger to the future of White people.
White people are vexed with our young people (blacks), particularly our hip-hop artists who are taking their young people (whites) away from the racist White Supremist idea. For these young people to be in love with Black sports figures; Black entertainment figures; and now, in admiration of a Black political figure (Barack Obama) signals the end-to them-of White Supremacy."
"We must wake up to the time and what must be done in such a time. It is not a time for integration; it is a time for us to separate from our former slave-masters and their children and go for self, do for self, and build a Nation under The Guidance of Almighty God."
"If the Muslim world will rise above this sectarianism of Shia and Sunni, and hold fast to Islam, for at the root of that rope is the bearing of witness that "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger." If the Islamic people will hold onto that rope, and be united around that, we can stop the West from any attempt to bomb Iran.
Or, if they (West) do, our (Islam) unified response would be devastating to the Western powers."
"But I warn the Government of the United States and all those who have power and will use it against the rise of our people:
I want you to keep your eyes on the weather. Allah (God) is going to demonstrate that there is another Power inside America and throughout the world other than your power, which will stop you from killing our people wholesale. If this Executive Decision is carried forth, it will mean the destruction of the United States of America." (Read the entire article)
Amidst all this the NYT is reporting that "Obama's coalition is expanding" and he is seen as the "candidate most likely to beat McCain." (source)
