2010, & U still think NOI is racist, THINK, whenever nonwhites can identify with there history & their tru strengths when they have been beatened & robbed of self for centuries the first response (especially whites) say they are racist!!! Tell me seriously who has caused all the turmoil in the entire world? I am considered white, though I am french/native Mik Maq not INDIAN or native AMERICAN, what other individual U know of has changed a people to the extent of perfection? Name one who asks for nothing in return, who tells U to search the truth? White people have gone all over the earth & caused mischief, war, mayham.... Prove me wrong! the earth wasn't good as G.d created so who covered the earth with cement? who kills all the trees? who travels the world & steals knowledge to take over, but so superior, right? Can;t even find whitey bulger, or jon benays killers, but u can go to other nations & kill innocent people! 911 was a joke, research IT! this country is n ot at war, it again is occupying another tribal nation, But the Minister is a racist! How dare U, open ur mind to truth he may save u, the NOI has helped my family tremendously, Yes, we are a so called mix marriage, but that did not matter, they helped, no one elsa did, WAKE UP!!!

With all the terror in this world, how do we react? Luke 6:37 " Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. John 3:17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. Matthew 6:5 " And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. There is our beliefs & there's God's Law. We can only fight evil with LOVE. It's not easy but it is Godly. Evil is easy, to be Godly requires self-discipline and restraint. Matthew 5:43 " You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' Matthew 5:44 "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, Matthew 5:46 "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

Abe Lincoln has nothing to do with this... but i would like to say something about him. ABe was part of the free labor movement. he honestly cared nothing about the African slaves he emancipated. his only idea was that slavery was bringing down the United States economy due to the decrease in demand of the products produced on the plantaions. so... abe lincoln was trying to abolish slavery NOT because he thought that blacks were equal to him and should be free, he wanted to abolish slavery because he wanted to raise the economic status of the united states. even during the break up of the US, the south was hit hard by deficit, and up until recently, the south was not as 'wealthy' as the north. now that i think about it, the US haven't changed at all.

Wow. sudwoman: Huh? What article are you responding to? What are you talking about? Abraham Lincoln? What has he got to do with the differences between these two Islamic religions? Where are you coming from? gtp3: What do you mean when you say that Christians have a concept of God as Man? Are all concepts of God "crooked" except Islamic? bbdh: What DID the Saudis do on 9-1-1? and finally, Realist00: I appreciate your voice of reason. And no, do not blame all Germans for what Hitler did. Hitler was Austrian, so blame them. (haha) ---gottkinder

Hey folks, have we ALL forgotten...THOU SHALL NOT KILL!!!and it is not for us to "take out". It is up to JEHOVAH to take care of Satan, always has been. If we ALL have just a little faith. The faith that works FOR ME is the one that I profess and LIVE. It is the same one as a man I hope to meet one day...Abraham (Lincoln)"If I do good, I feel good. If I do bad I feel bad and that is my religion."Maybe, just maybe that IS WHY he was killed...To shut him up..I'm not going to shut up as long as it is within my power to help...and LOVE to ALL even the sniper and his poor step-son

One point aboit NOI and Islam. Check what they believe 12 point program. On point 12 they believe Allah came in the form of Fard Muhammed, the traveling salesman and fmr. Garveyite. No Muslim can be a Muslim unless he says "There is no God but God and Muhammed (pbuh) is the (LAST and FINAL)Messenger of GOD" Number 12 according to the NOI believe opposite that God came as Fard Muhammed and Elijah Muhammed was a messenger. Therefore, There like Christians in their concept of God as Man not Islamic. Forget about other NOI teachings, If there concept of God is crooked then like dominoes the rest of their teaching will be slanted..

bbdh So are we supposed to blame NOI for this one? No. We should blame only the sniper. Is the Allah of NOI really different than the Allah of the rest of Islam? Yes. "Allah" is the Arabic word for God. However, the "Allah" traditional Muslims worship and the "Allah" that the NOI worship is extremely different. While the former worships "Allah", the God of Abraham; the latter worships "Allah", who they believe was someone by the name of Wallace Dodd, who later became "Fard Mohammad". The teachings of the NOI are fundamentally different from Orthodox Islam. The original founders used Islamic terminology as a way to connect to their African roots. Other than the commonality of certain Islamic terms and idea of prophets, the NOI can hardly be said to be adherants of orthodox Islam. continued...

Is one group right and the other wrong? In what respect..religious? That is open to debate. Followers of a particular faith will always claim that they are right :) Saudis are not NOI and look what they did on 9-1-1. Right. continued...

I fail to see the major distinction. Both Islamic religions produce the worst terrorists the world has ever seen since Stalin and Hitler. There is a distinction between Nation of Islam and Islam. Would you not make the distinction, for example, between the followers of David Koresh and followers of Christianity? Futher, you must also make the distinction between those terrorists and those who are law abiding and peaceful adherants to a particular religion. It's not fair or appropriate to blame an entire religion and all of its adherants for what a few do. Would it be fair to blame all Americans for the wrongs committed by certain Americans? Should we blame Christianity for the atrocities committed in its name? Should we label all Christians as bigots due to people like Jerry Falwell? Should we blame Hinduism and all of its followers for the acts of fundamentalist Hindus who go around raping and burning people? Should we blame all Germans for what Hitler did?

BS"D So are we supposed to blame NOI for this one? Is the Allah of NOI really different than the Allah of the rest of Islam? Is one group right and the other wrong? What's the point? Saudis are not NOI and look what they did on 9-1-1. I fail to see the major distinction. Both Islamic religions produce the worst terrorists the world has ever seen since Stalin and Hitler.
