Rachel,

The fault finding of Louis Farrakhan is always going to be a constant thing on him. And I am not ignorant of Louis Farrakhan's perhaps lavish lifestyle, but you will find many charlatans leaders are making their millions preaching religion of their choice.

As far as I am concerned; I think he's earned it, considering the fact, that he has successfully got millions of Blacks (of which much of the world don't give a damn about) off the streets, away from their certain early fates to the graveyard to become clean, educated, reformed and proud people.

After the man joined the organization in 1955, he was responsible in preserving the original teachings of the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Muhammad. Even if I do not believe much of it.

Louis Farrakhan was responsible for rebuilding NOI, once it was disbanded by Elijah Muhammad's son, Warith Deen Muhammad, who went to preach the orthodox Islamic group American Society of Muslims (an organisation who will overlook the Arabs 1400 year crusade on the Black race and still counting).

Louis Farrakhan was also responsible for restoring the name of 'Nation of Islam' for the organization in 1981, and worked hard to regain most of the Nation of Islam's National properties, such as the NOI National Headquarters Mosque Maryam in Chicago, as well as over 130 NOI mosques throughout America and the world. Along the way, his outspoken views, as always are either praised (by many of his followers, as well as by many all over the world) or widely criticised (particularly by Zionist controlled media).

I respect the man for going to Saudi Arabia, risking his very own life while facing and confronting the most revered extremist Muslims over his NOI beliefs, and even silenced those extremist Arabs he confronted over their hypocritical ways, even, if he is not a perfect Muslim, himself. And got back to America in one piece.

The man has earnt his respect; and his personal assets is no else's business, but his own and he is a Hu-man being, after all. Let God be the judge of that.
