his son Warid D. (Wallace)
Muhammad took over the
movement and radically
changed its outlook. He aban-
doned the nationalist —
separatist ideology; he invited
Caucasions, previously vilified
and barred from membership, to
join the newly-renamed Ameri-
can Muslim Mission; and he
urged the faithful to support
actively the American demo-
cratic system. He also advocated
dialogue between Black Mus-
lims and Jews.
In 1978, Farrakhan left the
American Muslim Mission,
strongly opposing Wallace
Muhammad's integrationist
views. He then formed the Na-
tion of Islam and advocated a
return to separatist, self-help
policies of Elijah Muhammed. In
his subsequent sermons, Far-
rakhan impassionedly called for
the liberation of black people
thoughout the world, and re-
newed Elijah Muhammad's call
for violent retribution against
whites: "The white man is our
mortal enemy."
Thus, the first key to under-
standing the real Farrakhan is
that he shares the ideological
vision of other Islamic fanatics,
notably Ayatollah Khomeini
and Qaddafi. Like them, he be-
lieves there will be an inevita-
ble confrontation between the
"children of light" (fundamen-
talist Muslims) and "the chil-
dren of darkness" (the white de-
vilish Western world, termed by
Khomeini and Qaddafi as "the
Great Satan.")
Farrakhan has translated that
cosmic vision of Armageddon
into concrete political programs
studded with appeals to vio-
lence. In an address before the
American-Arab Anti-
Discrimination Committee on

March 17, 1984, he stated that
the Palestinians and black
people in America were "op-
pressed" and they should take
matters into their own hands.
A chief obstacle to Far-
rakhan's vision of Islamic
triumph at Armageddon is that
for some 3,000 years there has
existed another "children of
light," namely, "the chosen
people of Israel." For years —
much before his meteoric rise to
prominence through association
with Jesse Jackson's President-
ial campaign — Farrakhan has
devoted major time and energy
trying to displace Jews as "the
chosen people" and to replace
them with blacks as the carriers
of history.
His most recent version of
that "new Israel" theory was
expressed in his Los Angeles
sermon of Sept. 15 in which
Farrakhan proclaimed, "I am
declaring to the world today
that they (the Jews) are not the
chosen people of God. I am dec-
laring to the world that you, the
black people of America and the
Western Hemisphere, are the
chosen people."
Farrakhan's theological views
are a vital reinforcement for the
PLO and Arab rejectionist polit-
ical ideology toward Zionism
and Israel. If he succeeds in per-
suading his followers and
fellow-travelers that God's cove-
nant with the Jewish people is
no longer valid, then by exten-
sion God's covenant with Israel's
promised land is equally invalid.
Farrakhan makes precisely that
connection between the theology
and politics:
"Now that nation called Is-
rael,". he said on June 28, 1984,
in Chicago, "never has had any
peace in 40 years and she will
