ELIJAH MUHAMMAD(THE FALL OF AMERICA;”pg.110)—–”
America wants everyone to help her bemoan all of her set-backs but when she causes others to fall…breaks up the countries of other peoples and destroys their independence and freedom, she laughs and prides herself as doing a great thing. She puts her feet upon their economic neck and destroys their independence as a nation.
14 All this now returns to America. The little nations are now awake. They had looked for true friendship from America but instead America deceived them.
15 Again, I repeat, the Bible prophecy…”As thou has done, it shall be done unto thee.” There is no friend for America. Also it is written in the Bible, “In the day of thy fall, none shall help thee….”
16 Why? Because you, America, have been and are an aide of the destruction and fall of other peoples. So who should help you in the day of your fall? This is what Allah (God) wants to bring home to America through His prophets.
17 The Holy Qur’an refers to America in this kind of prophecy: “When her doom comes there will come one calamity after another.” As soon as she thinks she is getting over the sore made by a previous calamity, another will attack her.
18 America is undergoing all that is prophesied against her. It is nothing new. It is well-known.
19 We have been eating the bread of affliction and suffering the poisonous bites of our white slave master. It has caused actual death of our proper mental way of thinking. The natural brain of the Black slave is poisoned and cannot think for itself.
20 So Allah (God) is asking us to separate from white America. But the mentally dead do not want to go from her for they have not yet gotten the knowledge of truth of our God, Allah and His Mercy for them.
21 The Black – slave – children are victimized by the white slavemaster, because of the condition the white – slave – master brought our Black slave-fathers up in. They do not readily hear the right answer to the problem. Regardless, to how I cry in their midst, they are poisoned and mentally dead.”**************************************************
US concerned about definition of aggression as international crime

THE HAGUE — A United States ambassador said Thursday that Washington was concerned about how aggression will be defined as an international crime.
“I would be remiss not to share with you my country’s concerns about an issue … to which we attach particular importance: the definition of the crime of aggression,” US war crimes ambassador Stephen Rapp told a gathering in The Hague of the International Criminal Court’s Assembly of State Parties (ASP).
The court’s founding Rome Statute, of which the United States is not a signatory, determines that the ICC can try aggression, though no legal definition has been agreed upon.
The issue is to be discussed at an ICC review conference in Kampala, Uganda, next May.
Rapp, who made no allusion to the United States ratifying the statute in the future, said Washington was concerned about the way a draft definition of aggression had been framed.

“Our view has been and remains that, should the Rome Statute be amended to include a defined crime of aggression, jurisdiction should follow a Security Council determination that aggression has occurred.”
He declined to elaborate when approached afterwards.
The United States is taking part in a meeting of the ASP, as an observer, for the first time since the world’s only permanent court for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity started operating in 2002.
The ASP, the court’s management and oversight body, is made up of representatives of all 110 member parties.
Former president George W. Bush had fiercely opposed the ICC, fearing it could target Americans out of political bias considering US dominance around the world.
Rapp said “the commitment of the Obama administration to the rule of law and the principle of accountability is firm.”
On Wednesday, ASP president Christian Wenaweser welcomed the US presence as “a very important gesture.”
