BELOW ,THE TITLE IS ,”DOCUMENTS SHOW DHS IMPROPERLY SPIED ONNATION OF ISLAM IN 2007″.NOW TELL ME WHEN DID THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT SPYING ON PEOPLE BECOME PROPER?—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-MESSENGER ELIJAH MUHAMMAD(THE FALL OF AMERICA,pg.15-17);”Immortality is now, here! We are the blessed of God! We must exert every means to protect ourselves! The message I bring is not for the cowards. Those of you who follow me must be ready to withstand the barbs and insults of those who come to investigate, pry, and claim that our ultimate aim is to undermine the American way of life. We have no such intentions. Our critics know it. There is nothing under the rug or subversive about what I say and teach. It is shouted over the air, in the newspapers, on the street corners. Why, then should you be intimidated by those who seek only to throw fear in your hearts and know what we say is right. How ironic it is that the very people who charge us with disturbing the status quo themselves go around raping, lynching, denying citizens the right to vote and taking to the halls of Congress to call you and me everything from a beast to an amoral entity! Yet they unite with their own kind. They give aid and comfort to their own kind. They bring their common enemy to naught. When then is it so wrong and subversive that you and I unite for the same end?
If you listen well, you can hear the screams of a Negro co-ed in Tallahassee as she vainly begs her four white abductors to leave her virtue intact. If you listen a little longer, you can hear the pleas of a Milwaukee Black mother as she begs police to free her six and seven year old daughters from a white abductor who held them captive and took carnal liberties with them for over an hour.
These acts of carnage must come to an end. To that end I suggest the following. First, we must discipline our women. If any of them are so blind as to consort with our oppressors, then we must take counsel among ourselves and with her. We must exert every pressure at our command until she will have returned to a state of loyalty to her own. Much of the defection among our women stems from the fact that they have been cajoled into following the oppressors’ style when it comes to hair, dress and clothing. These are the badges to sin and cause men to leer and behave lasciviously. If you study the customs and traditions of Islamic countries you will see the proper manner of dress. These are the rules we must lay down and enforce if our women are to receive the respect due them. Of course it must be realized that the oppressor seeks out our women to debase them. There is no real love and affection in his heart for them or us. She but becomes the tool of his pleasure, the object of his scorn. Secondly, we must realize the difference between integration and separation. To integrate with evil is to be destroyed with evil. What we want — indeed, justice for us, is to be set apart. We want and must insist upon an area in this land that we can call our own, somewhere we can hold our heads with pride and dignity without the continuous harassment’s and indignities of our oppressors. Thirdly, we must realize that whereas the Black man in Africa is our brother, our central responsibility is with the Black man here in the wilderness of North America. For us to expend our energies pleading for the cause of Africa is like a blind man pleading that his fellow blind man be given eyes while he continues to stumble in darkness.
The solution to all these problems lies in a clear cut understanding of the truth. I have come to bring you that truth. Now, I spell it out so that even the children among you may know the nature of tomorrow. First of all you must know the truth about God and the devil. We, the Black men are of God. Our oppressors whoever they may be are of the devil! Their nature is evil! They are incapable of doing good! Secondly, I must tell you the truth about the day of judgment. You have been taught that one day the dead In God shall rise again. You have taken that to mean that people will get up from the graveyard and walk about. That is so much nonsense! Properly read, the resurrection means that we, the Black men of North America, will rise from mental death. Realize who we are! Discover who God is! Name the devil for the beast that he is! Then, like Joseph, go on to become master in the land wherein once you were a slave! “————————————————————————————————————-
“Documents show DHS improperly spied on Nation of Islam in 2007

The Department of Homeland Security improperly gathered intelligence on the Nation of Islam for eight months in 2007 when the leader of the black Muslim group, Louis Farrakhan, was in poor health and appeared to be yielding power, according to government documents released Wednesday.
The intelligence gathering violated domestic spying rules because analysts took longer than 180 days to determine whether the U.S-based group or its American members posed a terrorist threat. Analysts also disseminated their report too broadly, according to documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a civil liberties group.
The disclosure was included in hundreds of heavily redacted pages released by the Justice Department as part of long-standing FOIA lawsuits about the government’s policies on terrorist surveillance, detention and treatment since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. It marks the latest case of inappropriate domestic spying under rules that were expanded after the terror attacks to give intelligence agencies more latitude.
In a written statement, Homeland Security (DHS) spokesman Matthew Chandler said the agency has since implemented “a strong and rigorous system of safeguards and oversight to ensure similar products are neither created nor distributed.”
The agency, he said, “is fully committed to securing the nation from terrorist attacks and other threats, and we take very seriously our responsibility to protect the civil rights and liberties of the American people.” The 2007 study, titled “Nation of Islam: Uncertain Leadership Succession Poses Risks,” was recalled by agency lawyers within hours. The lawyers said it was not reviewed by the department’s intelligence chief before release.
Charles E. Allen, who was DHS undersecretary for intelligence and analysis at the time, said that although violations were unintentional and inadvertent — only publicly available information was collected — the report should never have been issued.
“The [Nation of Islam] organization — despite its highly volatile and extreme rhetoric — has neither advocated violence nor engaged in violence,” Allen wrote in a March 2008 memo. “Moreover, we have no indications that it will change its goals and priorities, even if there is a near-term change in the organization’s leadership.”
DHS clarified its intelligence collection rules in April 2008, and last December, then-Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey issued new terrorism and other domestic investigation guidelines.
Telephone messages for Ishmael Muhammad, a spokesman for the Nation of Islam in Chicago, were not immediately returned.
Allen, now a consultant with the Chertoff Group, said it was important for U.S. authorities not to limit unnecessarily their ability to monitor people who are moving from extreme ideas toward ideologically motivated violence, noting that al-Qaeda in 2006 shifted its strategy to train North Americans to engage in attacks.
“It’s a fine line,” Allen said. “We should not make the rules absolutely rigid, and they should be reviewed from time to time.”
Nathan Cardozo, a legal fellow for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, called the documents “extremely disturbing.”
Newly released documents also indicate the Justice Department considered bringing treason charges against John Walker Lindh, the Californian who became known as “the American Taliban” after he was captured in Afghanistan in 2001. That was contained in a December 2001 memo by John Yoo, a deputy assistant attorney general, and was released as part of FOIA litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union. In the memo, Yoo wrote that “treason cases have been rare in the Nation’s history,” but that Lindh’s conduct “may fit the elements.”
