Far­rakhan warns a Mideast war pos­si­ble

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION/WORLD -

DUBAI, United Arab Emi­rates — Min­is­ter Louis Far­rakhan, the leader of the Na­tion of Is­lam, warned Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump not to pull “the trig­ger of war in the Mid­dle East at the in­sis­tence of Is­rael,” speak­ing Thurs­day while on a visit to Iran.

The 85-year-old Far­rakhan, long known for provoca­tive com­ments widely con­sid­ered anti-Semitic, crit­i­cized the eco­nomic sanc­tions lev­eled by Trump against Iran af­ter Amer­ica’s pull­out from the nu­clear deal be­tween Tehran and world pow­ers.

“The war will trig­ger an­other kind of war which will bring China, Rus­sia, all of the na­tions into a war,” Far­rakhan said. “The war will end Amer­ica as you know it.”
