Farrakhan falls ill and postpones visit to Belize

Nuri Muhammad

The highly anticipated visit of the Head of the Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan, has been postponed at the eleventh hour. Arrangements had all been put in place for the high security visit of one of the most controversial, yet inspirational speakers. The seventy-nine year old minister, who was to arrive in the jewel on Thursday, was expected to address hundreds of followers, bringing a message of a “Voice of Hope.”  But the Caribbean tour was cut short when Farrakhan fell ill on Tuesday night; suffering from exhaustion and dehydration in St. Thomas. Organizer here in Belize, Nuri Muhammad, says that the visit will be rescheduled hopefully for early next year.

“The circumstances are understandable. The minister was checked into the hospital in St. Thomas last night suffering from extreme exhaustion, dehydration and suspicion of urinary tract infection which comes from dehydration. And it was recommendation from the doctors and his family that he cut short his tour. As you know he has been on a seven nation tour and we in fact were the last two—Belize and Bahamas—and unfortunately he will not be able to make it.  But the hope is that he will reschedule and our optimism is that he will be here in January or a time soon after that. He’s asked me through his representative to extend his sincere appreciation for the outpour of love that he has seen reading the blogs, reading the news reports hearing the reports that I have sent to him.  What I thought that the minister’s message would have brought to us over the weekend would have been a mirror to look at ourselves; for young people to look at themselves. That brother that you are killing is your brothers; looks just like you. Gone dah school, ina the same school, ina the same neighborhood like you, same circumstance you in; yet you kill ahn over a draws. What kinda thing is this. Killing each other over petty simple unessential things. This is a sad situation for us in Belize and I thought that the minister’s speech would have caused us to reflect on what we already know.   The minister’s way and approach throughout the Caribbean is to say this same message because much of what we are affected by here Duane, you are seeing in Jamaica, Grenada, St. Kitts; we are seeing it all over.”

 

Farrakhan’s third visit to Belize would have been part of his 2012 Caribbean Tour. Aside from Belize, he will also be skipping the last leg of his tour in the Bahamas.

    Divine intervention?

  2. Al says:

    This country is facing enough problems, it did not need this visit to shed another black eye on it.
    This man does not need to spread his hatred in a country already dealing with so much of its own problem. Let him peddle his false religion somewhere else.

    Please do not speak about Divine Intervention you have no
    clue what Divinity is. Blessing one moment, then Cursing the other.
    (What you people need, is to come together), so that some Divine Intervention
    can help stop the madness that’s going on in that (Beautiful Country). Instead of trying
    to be the judge of who you think is evil and who is not. Amen! ie, Amen Ra (Atum Re) Salaam, YHWH Shalom.

    Best news I have hear in a long long long long time we surely don’t need another bigot in this country and much less the biggest of them all.

    Belizeans are crying tears, big tears. Farrakhan, king of kings, lord of lords, crazy of crazies has died. Oh wait a minute, he is alive. He simply has the whte man’s disease…… loose bowels movement.

    Darn. I was looking forward to his autograph. I have McAfee’s autograph, now I was hoping for Farrakhan’s. I was going to put his photograph in my living room. Right along side McAfee’s half naked photo. Two Belizean heros. Two certified kooks.

    Bwai, Belizeans we know how to pick our winners. Don’t we?

    Coralblack they are just NOT READY. Not even realizing how brainwashed they are and yes, extremely judgemental. It’s no wonder why Belize is in the state that it is in. Those who consider themselves to be honest, sober citizens are often in a dellusion and very closed and narrow minded. if the British announced that they were prepared to take back Belize, the comments would probably MAJORITY IN FAVOR. Self education is what is needed, but they are content with their backward thinking, yes I will say it WHITE MAN’S MENTALITY!!!!

    It is so stupid how those of us Belizeans who talk about slavery so much and yet it is our people who are d most enslaved, by our own ignorant self, and the evil criminal pimps we call our leaders like FarraCON. If any pimp have darker skin then a white we listen to him. We are the real fools and deserve what we get.

  14. MoeDah says:

    If you want evil criminal pimps like FarraCon in Belize, you are an enemy of the people of Belize, and of God.

  15. OriginalWoman says:

    You people talk about God, but sound like you do NOT know God. Look at the mess you God-fearing people are living in!!! All the murders, child molestations and rapes from christian pastors, step-fathers, etc. Black on black crimes increasing on a daily basis!!! Instead of being open, you all are ready to crucify Mr. Farrakhan. I do not know why he would want to come to waste time in Belize. I guess he knows that in spite of the ignorance, there is still hope for “black empowerment,” something Belizeans seem to know very little about. Well Jesus was cursed, mocked and then cricified too, by his own people the JEWS and some still denounce Him even today!!! You ALL are too bad minded and really need to stop. You sound like your $&%t do not stink!!! How do you trust each other in Belize??? I bet most of you do not!!!
