Farrakhan Mourns Ghadaffi and Recounts his UFO Abduction
Outspoken Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan took to the Chicago airwaves Tuesday night to condemn the killing of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and denounce American military involvement in the Middle East — and to re-tell what he said was the story of his 1985 abduction by aliens from outer space.
“I feel like I have lost a very, very important member of my own family,” Farrakhan told radio host Cliff Kelley on Chicago’s WVON-AM. “So I cannot take the assassination of Moammar Gadhafi lightly as I could not take the assassination of my brother, or my mother, or my wife, or my children lightly.”
Farrakhan warned the West that the joy they feel at Gadhafi’s death of will come back to haunt them in the form of uprisings that will arise in response.
“The Nation of Islam mourns the loss of a great brother leader, the ‘Lion of the Desert,’ the ‘Lion of Africa.’ And those who rejoice at his death — your laughter will turn to tears, and your joy will come to sorrow and great pain because of what the western world and those collaborators will lose as a result of his betrayal and his ultimate assassination.”
Farrakhan also recounted what he claimed was a UFO abduction in which Elijah Muhammad warned him of a coming war. Farrakhan explained how after the 1985 event, then-President Ronald Reagan announced that Americans were to have no dealings with Libya and Gadhafi. It was at that point, he said Tuesday, that he understood this was the war to which his UFO experience alluded.
