Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks "to give life" and sit at the "top of civilization."

He also "issued the final call," as he termed it: "I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let's have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I'll call on the Jesus that I know, and let's see which one of us really knows Jesus."

Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah Muhammed, a former leader of the Nation of Islam, in making his case for the abolition of whites, The Blaze reported.

Among his comments, The Blaze reported: "According to the history of the white race, they are guilty of making trouble, causing war among the people and themselves ever since they have been on our planet Earth. So, the God of the righteous has found them disagreeable to live with in peace and has decided to remove them from the face of the Earth."

He then said: "We are the victims of these troublemakers. Allah will fight this war for the sake of his people, and especially for the American so-called Negroes."
