FIRE FEED WITH FUEL
FIRE FEED WITH FUEL
BY ELIJAH MUHAMMAD, MESSENGER OF ALLAH
REPRINTED FROM MUHAMMAD SPEAKS JULY 4,1971
THE subject of this article is taken from the Holy Quran Chapter 85:5.
WE do not hope for peace as long as we add to the war that which serves
as fuel to a fire. The fire cannot go out as long as we keep it burning
by adding more fuel. A dying, burning fire is increased when more fuel is
thrown into it.
THERE are a lot of people who are so anxious for peace so that they can
return to committing that which they lack and love–idling, sport and
THE world that we live in desires first of all to hide the truth to keep
the Black Man who is made blind, deaf and dumb by the scientific
tricknology of the white race, so that the white race can continue to
carry on the same deceiving and wickedness that they have been practicing.
HOW can we expect peace where the method used to bring about peace is the
same method that started the war —- instead of finding a right solution
and then practicing the right solution?
I SAY these things for the sake of my own Black People, for they are so
ignorant to the knowledge of the truth of the time in which we are
living. What they would like to do cannot be done, for the time to even
continue to do what you are doing, is up.
WE MUST remember again the prediction of the Bible. It has foretold these
times, if we understand the Bible. It most certainly teaches us that
there is no peace for the wicked.
THERE is no people who preach such thing as peace and as being true
followers of the prophet Jesus, as much as the white Christians do. Day
and night the air-waves are full of their preaching. To hear them, you
would think that they were the prophets Moses and Aaron. As the words of
the Jesus put it, “They sat in Moses’ Seat.”
THE white Christians are great deceivers. The Pope of Rome cannot bring
peace to the Christian Church for he is not enjoying peace himself. SO
who is that people then that the Bible prophesies of in the Book of
Isaiah that ” He will extend peace to them like rivers? ” Surely it
cannot be the present Christian white race for they are the ones who are
breaking the peace.
FIRE FED WITH FUEL—– leaving your own home and country you go to
another man’s home and country to make trouble for that people and then
accuse that people of being the trouble-maker. It is the attacker who is
guilty of that which follows the attack. I say to you Black People, you
can get away from that old misunderstanding of the time. You are not
living in a time in which you may be expecting a settlement of the war
that will give you what you have always been used to—sport and play and
ACTUALLY, now is the time that you and I should be wise enough to
understand that we should think for self and do for self. If you do not
know how to do for self, you should follow the man whom Allah (God) Has
Given that knowledge to teach you how to do for self.
WITH THE oceans filled with the fleets of the white Christians and the
skies clouded with their death-dealing planes over other peoples’
territory could you tell them that they should submit to you for peace?
If you are able to force them to their knees or to destory them, then I
say yes. If that was the situation then I would say that they should
submit and let you triumph.
BUT you cannot force them to their knees. They have been preparing for a
war like this for nearly a century, or rather I should say, they have
been preparing and working faithfully for a half a century to entertain
the attacker with the same type weapon and better weapons than the
weapons you are attacking them with. If you resort to worse weapons they
have worse weapons also.
SO we are in a time when argument to the contrary of peace is like
heaping fuel on a fire—-it keeps it burning. We are living in an evil
I BELIEVE and maybe many hundreds of thousands believe as I do, that the
President of the United States of America had good intentions toward the
citizens of America, when he took over the presidency, but the time is
FOR the past four thousand (4,000) years and more Allah (God) Has already
Given the prophecy through the mouth of His Prophets of the doom of the
wicked. Now is the time and we cannot do anything but take it, and it is
dangerous to add fuel to an unwanted fire. THE FIRE IS THE WAR!.
