Just merely mentioning Israel or questioning in any way the effectiveness or humanity of Israel’s policies is not the same thing as being pro-Hamas.

Unfortunately they don’t know what Zionism is. Zionism is a political philosophy which has brought about the so-called state of Israel. This political philosophy has nothing to do with religion. On the contrary, it seeks to confuse others and let them think that Zionism and Judaism is one in the same. I am a conscious African. I know properly my history. I know that Africa gave Judaism to the world. I know that the first Jews in the world were African. Not only do I know this, but I inform everyone who has doubts about it to read a book by Sigmund Freud entitled “Moses and Monotheism” as a beginning. Consequently, I know that Judaism and Zionism are not the same.

Zionism had its first organization expressions in 1897 in Switzerland, in Europe. Here was a man by the name of Theodor Herzl; he was the founder of Zionism. He said that he was going to find the state that God promised the Jews. Listen to this very carefully. This man Herzl was an atheist. He believed there was no God. He said God did not exist. How is a man that believes that God does not exist, is going to find a state that God promised to his chosen people. I tell you, this man is Satan in disguise.

Zionism is a Satanic movement. It is devil. It is Imperalism, it is racist; it has gone and taken the land of the Palestinian people, and through terrorism has driven them out, and through terrorism, it maintains its power. And the United States of America, with over 6,000,000 homeless, sends to Israel billions and billions and billions of dollars everywhere to bomb Palestinian people while homeless people are here and unemployed are here. Zionism is going to raise this war and make the people of America become clear to what it is, and become anti-Zionist, and stop the aid to Israel, and use the money to take care of the homeless in this country.

Answer to question: You also mention Zionism and said that some our young people in the Persian Gulf may not understand the role that Zionism is playing in this conflict. Could you explain what you mean by that?

A group of American Quakers are operating what they call a “new underground railroad” to help a few LGBT Ugandans flee their country, where a recent law imposes harsh penalties for homosexuality. The Friends New Underground Railroad (FNUR), based in Washington state, sees itself as continuing the work of Quakers who historically helped slaves escape the American South.
As of this Monday, they say they have worked with unnamed Ugandan “conductors” to fund and coordinate passage out of the country for 107 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Ugandans, nine of whom have reached Sweden, while several dozen others are “being processed for asylum status in countries around the world,” according to the group’s FAQ page.
