Food: New Weapon of Mass Destruction

by Dr. Ridgely Abdul Mu’min Muhammad

Exodus 1:10 and 19

10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when war occurs, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.

19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered before the midwives come in unto them"

Now since the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, taught us that the Ancient Egyptian did not do this to the Children of Israel, but this was a prophesy to be fulfilled in this day, we must observe the practices of the modern "Pharaohs" or presidents and defend ourselves against their plans.

On September 28, 2005 former Secretary of Education, Bill Bennett stated on a radio broadcast and we quote:

 

"But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down."

Now let’s look at some of the policy debates and research done to fulfill these goals. In June 1997 Jane’s Defense Weekly reported that former defense Secretary Cohen "quoted other reports about what he called ‘certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races." More can be read about biological warfare in a recent publication by the British Medical Association entitled, "Biotechnology, Weapons and Humanity" where it states that "Genetic engineering of biological agents, to make them more potent, has been carried out covertly for years..." p. xviii.

But what is more disturbing is testimony which has surfaced in the South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission around "Dr Death" (Wouter Basson): "There were revelations of research into a race-specific bacterial weapon; a project to find ways to sterilize the country's black population; discussions of deliberate spreading of cholera through the water supply; large-scale production of dangerous drugs; ..."

Methods of population sterilization include inoculation under false pretenses and poisoning the water and food supply. The international biotechnology firms have become more intrusive into third world countries in their attempt to control all germ plasma of the planet. They go into an area and collect the local staple germ plasma, break down its genetic code then patent that code and variety. They then try to force the local farmers to buy the corporation’s seeds threatening them with patent violations if they plant their once native varieties. When America invaded Iraq, one of the first moves that it made was to force the Iraqi farmers to turn in their seeds and buy Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds.

The recent "Rice Genome Project" is heralded as a great break through and a step in locking down the genetic code of the other main food staples including corn and wheat. Now rice can be manipulated at will, even inoculated with vaccines to "prevent" diseases. Could one of these "diseases" be "overpopulation" of an unwanted ethnic type?

Cyrus Vances’ 1980 "Global 2000 Report to the President", and Al Gore’s book, "Earth in the balance" suggested that the world was quickly becoming overpopulated. Al Gore suggested in his book that the rapid growth in human population was leading to environmental degradation and that the world should institute a "Global Marshall Plan". The first tenant of such a plan would be "Stabilizing World Population". Mr. Gore, the former Vice-president, demonstrates his points by focusing in on three countries as examples of overpopulation; Kenya, Egypt and Nigeria. These are the only countries that he mentions and they all are interestingly on the continent of Africa.

On September 18, 2002, Melanie Gosling wrote "South Africans have been eating genetically modified organisms for the past five years, according to Monsanto, the world's biggest biotechnology company."

The article goes on to say that, "…over 100,000 hectares of genetically modified yellow maize was grown in South Africa, which would increase to 150,000 hectares next year and to one million hectares by 2005."

But fear not, Monsanto adds comforting words, "The biggest problem with people who oppose GMOs is that they are ignorant. Already 42 billion portions of GM food have been consumed worldwide and not one person has got sick from it. People in the United States have been eating GM foods for 15 years," he said.

Other scientists have been working specifically on producing food that would kill human sperm. Robin McKie, science editor, for the The Observer wrote on September 9, 2001:

"Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation. The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm."

However, in their hurried attempts to use their newly acquired knowledge of the genes and their functions, they have made some crucial errors which render their intended race specific weapons general poisons that could destroy the fabric of life itself on our planet. Jeffrey Smith in his book "Seeds of Deception" points out that the method of genetically modifying a food crop to add a specific protein producing gene was flawed from the outset. Early theories had predicted that each gene was a specific code for producing one protein. However, scientists now know that a single gene can produce many proteins depending on a number of situations and circumstances that scientists are just beginning to explore, but have no way to control. According to Mr. Smith a single gene from a fruit fly, for example, can "generate up to 38,016 different protein molecules".

Not only do they not know how a new gene introduced into an organism will operate under different circumstances, they do not know if in the process of rearranging the DNA they may have damaged it, causing it to produce life threatening toxins within its host. It seems like the little joke that I made with the then president of Dupont back in the days of the Y2K scare was truer than I had expected. I told him that "I hope that the same scientists who tried to put those 4 digits into the 2 slots on the computers are not the ones working on genetic engineering?" So it seems that Pharaoh’s modern helpers are busy working on our DNA and the joke and the jokers are on us.
