RNA - Farrakhan, leader of the US-based Nation of Islam movement, is “following in the prophetic tradition of speaking truth to power,” said Kevin Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a Ph.D. in Islamic and Arabic Studies.
“He has been speaking truth to power about all kinds of very, very important [and] sensitive issues; he’s been a leading voice of 9/11 truth…and he is calling it the way he sees it, which is the way it really is,” Barrett told Press TV on Tuesday.
“The honorable minister Farrakhan has been one of the few people telling the hard truths about this and for that reason he’s both extremely popular among those who are awake and alert and understand what’s really happening in the world and he’s extremely unpopular among the Zionist neoconservative professional liars, propagandists and criminals who run this country.”
In February, Farrakhan blasted President Donald Trump for the assassination of Iran’s top anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, saying “murder is your modus operandi.”
During a speech at the Savior’s Day conference in Detroit, Michigan, Farrakhan said, "Mr. Trump killed my brother Qassem Soleimani.”
The African American activist and Muslim preacher condemned Trump for trying to justify the assassination of General Soleimani by falsely claiming he was a “bad man” who had “killed a lot of Americans.”
“That man was no terrorist … he was the brother of [the Iraqi people] from Iran trying to rid them of an occupying [US] army.”
"Mr. Trump... you said that my brother [Qassem Soleimani] is a terrorist... you may call me a terrorist tomorrow to justify what the government is planning to do to me and the Nation Of Islam," Farrakhan said.
“See, murder is your modus operandi. See here I am now. You want me dead. And after today you might want to speed it up. I don't know.”
On January 3, a drone strike conducted by direct order of Trump martyred Soleimani, the former commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), and their companions outside Baghdad International Airport.
During his speech, Farrakhan also warned Trump that “America is falling” because “everybody is rebelling against God.”
“America is falling, is falling. Why are you falling America? Because you have become the habitation of devils. A hole for every foul person. A cage for every hateful bird. Have you become a nation of devils?”
"Mr. Trump, this nation has become a habitation of devils," he said.
