Let's not pretend Ali was Gandhi
by Michael Shelden, Daily Telegraph, 4 Jan 2002,
says that under the influence of the Nation of Islam,
Ali attacked interracial sex:
"In an interview with Playboy [in 1964]
he declared: "A black man should be killed if he's messing with a white woman." When the interviewer asked about black women crossing the colour barrier, Ali responded: "Then she dies. Kill her, too.""
Ali also said:
"No intelligent black man or black woman in his or her right black mind wants white boys and white girls coming to their homes to marry their black sons and daughters."
Of course, Ali himself descends from a number of consenting
white-black interracial marriages.
was a white Irishman named Abe Grady, who emigrated to America from Ennis, Co.Clare,
and married a "free colored woman".
The irony in Muhammad Ali's sad name change
sums up the inability of many American blacks
to criticise non-white abusers of blacks.
Muhammad Ali's very name sums up what is wrong with the Nation of Islam.
He was born Cassius Marcellus Clay,
named after the heroic white anti-slavery campaigner
Cassius Marcellus Clay.
At age 21, he changed his name to "Muhammad Ali",
the same name as the
brutal Arab slave-owner and slave-trader of Sudanese blacks,
Muhammad Ali of Egypt,
Ottoman viceroy of Egypt, and founder of modern Egypt.
Muhammad Ali of Egypt
was a brutal slave-owner and slave-trader:
"Muhammad Ali viewed the territory comprising Sudan as an extention of
water, land and resources, namely gold and slaves.
Muhammad Ali's administration captured slaves from the Nuba Mountains and west and south Sudan
Muhammad Ali's reign in Sudan and that of his descendants is known in Sudan
for its brutality and heavy-handedness."
"Until 1843 Muhammad Ali maintained a state monopoly on slave trading in Egypt and the pashalik."
"Muhammad had many male and female slaves.
He used to buy and sell them, but he purchased more slaves then he sold.
He once sold one black slave for two."
So this black boxer
had the name of a white liberator of blacks,
and he changed it to the name of an Arab enslaver of blacks.
Muhammad Ali of Egypt
was the only famous person in the world called
when the boxer adopted the name.
Did he not know?
Did he not care?
Is slavery of blacks ok so long as you are Arab?
Has he ever regretted adopting the name of a slaver?
Tell me here.
Still the greatest,
Al-Ahram Weekly Online, Egypt,
6-12 Dec 2001,
openly celebrates the fact that the boxer
abandoned the name of a slave-liberator
and adopted the name of a slave-trader:
"He renounced his slave connection,
and took the name of the great Muslim Albanian ruler of modern Egypt Muhammad Ali.
He changed the consciousness of his people. He raised their pride and dignity."
The boxer said:
"Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn't choose it, and I didn't want it.
I am Muhammad Ali, a free name
- it means beloved of God - and I insist people use it when speaking to me and of me."
The Zebra murders
14 innocent white men and women
were tortured and murdered in 1973-4 by
black racists from the Nation of Islam.
Not a "splinter group" either
(the Nation of Islam provided their defence lawyers).
Police suspect that 71 murder cases in that period may have been by this racist group.
The snipers said:
"We will kill them all. Jihad ... Allah Akbar!""Our minarets are our bayonets, Our mosques are our barracks, Our believers are our soldiers.""Islam. We will Resist. We will conquer. We will win."
Of the victims:
"They all died and they all deserved it. We will not stop.
This war will not end until you are all destroyed utterly."
It is interesting that all the major riots by black Americans
have come in modern times
(since the 1960s),
when discrimination and poverty are far less than they were in the past.
It seems a universal truth
(see the history of Ireland for another example)
that revolutions happen not during times of oppression,
but rather during times when that oppression is lifted.
And it need hardly be pointed out the irony that
the anger, hatred, racism and violence
in these riots
comes not from the respectable middle-class blacks who work for a living,
but rather from people who do not work, but live off the taxpayers' generosity.
This is true in cities throughout the West (independent of race).
The ones who hate the taxpayer the most are the ones who live off the taxpayer.
Again, doing good for people won't make them like you.
