DETROIT (AP) Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan suggested yesterday that President Bush is a greater threat than Saddam Hussein.
"Is [Saddam] the greatest threat to world peace? Or is it the president of the United States?" Mr. Farrakhan asked. "It seems like there are only three nations that want to attack Iraq: Israel, Britain and the United States."
If the United States uses force against Iraq, lives "will be lost on the basis of bad judgment," said Mr. Farrakhan, who met Iraqi officials in Baghdad earlier this year and who has called Judaism a "gutter religion."
"If you listened to our president last night, we would be ready to give him the vote that he asks for and get ready for war," he said, exhorting his listeners to "question the president and ask him, 'Sir, where are the actual facts?'"
