As I revealed in an article in 2006, the Nation of Islam is only very remotely associated with Islam, and founded on the occult teachings of Freemasonry. Recently I have become aware of its connection to Scientology.
According to Wikipedia, Farrakhan announced his embrace of Dianetics on May 8, 2010 and actively encouraged Nation of Islam members to undergo “auditing” from the Church of Scientology. Since then, the Nation of Islam has been hosting its own dianetics courses and its own graduation ceremonies. By 2013, nearly 8500 members had undergone dianetics auditing. At a 2013 graduation ceremony, Shane Woodruff, vice-president of the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Centre International, stated that “The unfolding story of the Nation of Islam and Dianetics is … absolutely committed to restoring freedom and wiping hell from the face of this planet.”
Louis Farrakhan “recently told his flock that no one may be a leader in the Nation unless and until they have attained the Scientology state of Clear. … the cost of reaching the Clear state in Scientology is $128,000. … while he has been preaching the word of Mohamed, he has been involved in Scientology for over thirty years.”
The NOI is thoroughly intertwined with the leading occult trends of the twentieth century. In Black Terror White Soldiers, I pointed out that the NOI traces its decent again to one Jamal ud Din al Afghani, (1836-1897) the notorious imposter who simultaneously was the main inspiration behind the occult revival of the nineteenth century, as well as the fundamentalist Salafi “reform” movement of Islam, which has been the backbone of the CIA’s projects in the Middle East.
Historian K. Paul Johnson proposes that it was Afghani, left, who was largely responsible for the central doctrines of H. P. Blavatsky, the leading influence behind the occult revival and considered the godmother of the New Age movement.
As a leader of the mysterious Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, Afghani laid the foundations for organizations like the Golden Dawn and ultimately the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) of Aleister Crowley. In Afghani’s own words, he explained:
We do not cut off the head of religion except with the sword of religion. Therefore, if you were to see us now, you would see ascetics and worshipers, kneeling and genuflecting, never disobeying God’s commands and doing all that they are ordered to do.[3]
