Why all the criticism on Farrakhan?

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim

Submitted by Djinx (United Kingdom), Jan 1, 2014 at 19:06

Personally, I do not follow Louis Farrakhan, but, truthfully speaking, Louis Farrakhan is nothing compared to the evil sins of the Arabs and muslim renegades done unto the Black race since after the advent of the prophet Muhammad, and still ongoing...

Farrakhan speaks for the ills committed on his people with impunity over the centuries.

Islam is supposed to be a religion that allows no racism...

Recently, in 2011, we saw the ethnic cleansing of 30,000 Black citizens of a Libyan town called Tawergha committed by racist Arab rebel brigades, unfortunately backed by NATO. Also, a lot of African immigrants were persecuted, without impunity; lots of them were unreportedly killed by those racist Libyan rebels. Not one Arab muslim complained of this evil and yet, there is supposed to be no RACISM in the Islamic creed!

THE ABSENCE OF ARABIC/MUSLIM ABOLITIONISTS IS ASTONISHING!

While Christian Reformers spearheaded the anti-slavery abolitionist movements in Europe and North America, and Great Britain mobilised her Navy, throughout most of the 19th Century, to intercept slave ships and set the captives free, there was no opposition whatsoever to slavery within the Muslim world.

In the Arabic language even before Muhammad, the word Slave/Abd was - and still is - associated with BLACK AFRICANS.

Slave markets, supplying the Arab Emirates, were still operating in Djibouti in the 1950's; and since 1960, the slave trade has flourished in Mauritania - where Arab apartheid exists and the Sudan (by so-called Arabs unto the darker skinned Africans) to this very day.

Islam is often spoken of as a universal faith that transcends culture and ethnicity. Imams will often sermonize on how Islam dispelled the darkness of racism and created a pluralistic and just society.

It is a well known fact, that In both Arab and Iranian Islamic writings, blacks are considered to be stupid, untruthful, vicious, cowardly, sexually unbridled, ugly and distorted, excessively merry, and easily affected by food and drink.

Therefore, it is a small wonder that the Nation of Islam differs from that of mainstream Islam.

With that being said; it is just as well, Blacks have their own religious organisation where they can demand respect and dignity.
