* Malcolm X * (1925-1965)


[Bureau Deletion] the Muslim Cult of Islam, which is also known as the Allah

Temple of Islam, is a religious cult whose members regard Allah as their

supreme being and claim to be the direct descendants of the original race on

earth. The members fanatically follow the teachings of Allah as interpreted

by Elijah Muhammad, the "true prophet of Allah" entitled titular head of the

Muslim Cult of Islam in the United States, and believe that any civil law

[that] conflicts with the Muslim law should be disobeyed. The members

disavow their alliegence to the United States and pledge their allegiance

only to Allah and do not consider it their duty to register for Selective

Service or to serve in the United States Armed Forces as they cannot serve

two masters. According to the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and the cult's

ministers, the members of a minority race in the United States are not

citizens of this country but merely slaves of this country and will continue

to be slaves until they free themselves by destroying non-Muslims and

Christianity in the "War of Armaggeddon."
