Farrakhan 'The Genocide of Palestinians is a Test for The Human Family'

If you could look at their suffering, and it don’t move you, you have lost your humanity...

(Below is an excerpt from Minister Farrahkhan's Keynote speech delivered at Saviors Day, February 25th, 2024 in Detroit, MI. Click to WATCH the full message HERE)

"For these last two months, I have been in my house, in my room, music room, baptizing myself in the pain and the bloodshed of my Palestinian family. 

Brothers and sisters, that is our family.  You may not think that, but it’s okay; you have to grow beyond yourself, and you have to know there are people in this world that are connected to you far beyond your own Black skin.  So, as I was baptizing myself in the blood of my family, it was building me up for what I am about to tell you all today. 

Palestinians’ right to exist is validated by Allah (God). Prime Minister Netanyahu has a vision of Haaretz Israil.  Several states over there, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, they intend to annex that to what is called “Greater Israel.”  Do you know about that?  That man already has over 400 nuclear bombs sitting in the desert in Dimona, Israel, under where my Hebrew Israelite family stayed. 

That’s a lot of weapons.  And they, now, feel that they are the power in the Middle East, and they are.  They feel that they can manipulate America, because they don’t respect Joe Biden.  And they have not respected any American president; in the last 40 years, they have manipulated every president of the United States of America.

One of the great prime ministers of Israel is Golda Meir; pay attention to what she said [in a June 15, 1969 interview with Frank Giles, published in The Sunday Times]: “There was no such thing as Palestinians…  It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country from them.  [To us] They did not exist.”  She is boldly saying, “Yeah, we took your country and threw you out,” because in their minds you don’t exist.

Nebuchadnezzar: The prototype of modern-day beasts in human form

God wanted me to say today what is said in the scriptures about Nebuchadnezzar. 

After I saw the war council, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad showed me, just the next night, in bold letters: “NEBUCHADNEZZAR.”  When I started reading about Nebuchadnezzar, he was a man who was so wicked, that God took out of him the heart of a human being and gave him the heart of a beast. 

Who could do to another human being what is being done to our Palestinian family, and let it happen and not think of a humanitarian crisis?  The crisis is not just what is happening to the Palestinians. 

The crisis involves what is happening to you, what is happening to me; what is happening to human beings who are more concerned with what they will lose by standing up, rather than standing up and facing the consequence of their stand, knowing that God will bring them out victorious.

But Mr. Biden should be ashamed of himself, being the leader of a country that is reputed to be “the most powerful nation on the Earth,” and he is in Israel bowing to Netanyahu.  And I mean bowing.  And they tell him that they are not going to stop the war.  The latest thing I read was that they were going to …

If Hamas did not give up the hostages before Ramadan, they were going to continue the war through Ramadan.  They said they have to destroy Rafah, because that is where the break started with Hamas, through Rafah, through the southern part of Gaza.  So now they have to “get even,” so they say: “No, no, no!  We’ll fight, and we’ll fight through Ramadan.”

A history of spineless, fearful U.S. presidents America is on her way down.  How many of you can see that America is not the same anymore?  Now, she can extend her time, but President Biden has to be a stronger man.  Do you remember last year in my talk, I mentioned the great evangelist Billy Gaham, and I mentioned President Nixon? 

There was a conversation that they were having; Mr. President was in the oval office, and Mr. Graham was on the phone, and Mr. Graham said there are “two kinds of Jews.”  He was telling Nixon, “They are the wicked ones who are the ones producing all this pornography and these filthy movies and whatnot, that has really destroyed the moral fabric of American life.” 

So, in truth, they wanted to do something about it; and Mr. Nixon, with his ability to send bombs all over the world, he said to Billy Graham: “I feel the same way you feel.  But I, I …  I can’t say it.” 

But you’re the president of the United States.  I mean, you can’t say anything about this?  And Mr. Graham, a deeply spiritual man, said: “Yeah, I know, and I can’t…  I can’t say anything either.” 

Mr. President, how are they going to start behaving if you won’t use the power to help them to see that they are out of line? 

Muslim world leaders: Stand up for your Palestinian brothers and sisters!

Do you know that our Palestinian family, they don’t have strong friendship in the Muslim world.  Why is that?  Are we Muslims?  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, “You are not a Muslim if you don’t want for your brother what you want for yourself.”  Now, I know that the Muslim world feels the pain of the Palestinians, but they are afraid—afraid to stand.  And from the rostrum, I am asking the Muslim world to stop fearing the consequence of standing. 

So, I am saying this openly to my brothers and sisters in Islam: You have to stand up against the genocide that is happening to our Palestinian family.  They do not need platitudes; they don’t need cheap talk.  They need the Muslim world to unite and say to Israel what you should say.  But I’m going to say it today, to Israel …   

One of the nights that he was revealing to me, in the middle of the night there was the screen again, and one name, “NEBUCHADNEZZAR.”  And that man, Nebuchadnezzar: Allah turned him from a human to a beast.  And when I looked at what was happening to our Palestinian brothers and sisters, I saw why Allah showed me Nebuchadnezzar; because Netanyahu was becoming a beast in human form, with no feeling at all for the Palestinian people and for what they were causing the Palestinian people to suffer.

“Well yeah, I know that’s rough…”  But when we say “that’s rough,” that’s so cheap.  That’s not what you should say as a human being.  So, what is happening in Palestine becomes a test for the whole human family. 

If you could look at their suffering, and it don’t move you, you have lost your humanity.  If you can see a dog suffer and have compassion…  If you can see your favorite horse suffer, where you’ve got to put him down, you feel pain!  Palestinian mothers are crying over the loss of their children!  I watched them cry; I watched them touch their babies that are dead, and don’t want to let the baby go to be buried. 

That’s not a barbarian feeling, that’s a human feeling.  I saw Jews that were suffering, too, burying their dead, and weeping as the Palestinians are weeping.  These are not barbarians!  They have suffered from Israel’s presence in Palestine.
