    The reason he said Mary was Egyptian is that that Mohommad confused Mary with Miriam the sister of Moses. According to the Qur’an (Surah 19:28, 3:33-36), Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the daughter of Imran or Amram, the father of Moses and Aaron. Mary is also said to be the sister of Moses and Aaron. Clearly Muhammad confused Mary with Miriam. Also one of the things black people don't realize is that Islam has never condemned slavery. It was the Arabs who brought the slaves to the coast for the whites to pick them up - the white man didn't have to go into the interior of Africa to get them. And even today Omar Bashir in Sudan has enslaved many black people - Rene

    Did Farrakhan tell the truth or did he lie?

    God loves all of his creation and it is not based on man's outward appearance but his inner that God judges. Why should Farrakhan presume to judge on what God does not? Surely, if he were a man of God, he would know this; God loves the peacekeepers. Repent and pray for those who continue to incited brother against brother. Amen

    Farrakhan is the archetype black and Muslim racist... that worships one god... Lucifer.

    Wow. The saddest thing about the excerpts of his comments: so much of his own misinformation could be corrected with a quick glance at, forgive me, Wikipedia. The Black Madonna isn't about race, it's about the name given to a religious piece of art.

    If someone wanted to disparage us based on the truth, we could take our lumps. But Louis, do yourself a favor and look up a few facts before you open your mouth and reveal your own ignorance and lack of knowledge. What a shame.


    Also, it may well be that the Queen of the South had a child with Solomon, which would make many people on the African continent related by blood to the family of Solomon and his descendants. It's too bad that Louis would miss an opportunity to mention THAT real relationship and instead propogate a bunch of lies that I'd expect to see on the blog of an uneducated conspiracy theorist. Sheba's visit to Solomon is written about in the Bible, which predates the Koran by centuries, and her visit is also described in the Koran. I can't even believe I'd tout Wikipedia, but that's how sadly lacking Louis is in the most basic of knowledge.

    Wasn't it the lover of the King who is narrating the story, and not King Solomon?
