Brothers and Sisters of the Black Community, members of the press, and the American People:

We have prepared this statement to answer some of the many inquiries that we have had over the last few days about Mr. Noah Green. Naturally, we, like most of you, were disturbed watching the news of an assault on the U.S. Capitol where one police officer was killed, one was injured, and Mr. Green was killed.

We speak on behalf of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the members of his family, all of the registered Muslim members of the Nation of Islam, and all people of good will everywhere, in that, we are in sympathy with the victims of this tragedy. And we are in sympathy with the families of these victims. And we, like you, can only offer them condolences and our deepest sympathy for their loss. Our prayers are for the full recovery of the officer who was injured.

The Nation of Islam has no history of violence against the government. Federal, state, and local law enforcement are all well aware of our history.

We have held four national marches, including the Historic 1995 Million Man March, which we know to be one of the largest gatherings in the history of the United States of America and the most peaceful on the U.S. Capitol grounds. We had a good working relationship with the U.S. Capitol police during each of these historic events.

It is being reported that Noah Green was a “follower” of the Nation of Islam. This young man, Noah Green, we believe may have attended our Saviours’ Day convention in Detroit, MI in February 2020. In March of 2020, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we closed our Mosques, and began conducting meetings and classes remotely. A search of our records indicates Noah Green was not a registered member of the Nation of Islam. It appears that in late summer (August-September) of 2020, he started the process to begin his study to become a member, but he did not complete the process.

He did make a donation to the Saviours’ Day Gift. Every year, the followers and supporters make a charitable donation to the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day Gift charity. Every donor who makes a donation of $1000 or more is issued a Certificate of Completion. This certificate does not establish that the donor is a member in good standing in the Nation of Islam.

Mr. Noah Green’s alleged use of an automobile as a weapon and the alleged possession of a knife as reported, violates our teachings. We absolutely disavow this act that resulted in the senseless loss of life. It is shocking for us to learn that someone who was attempting to be a part of our ranks may have been involved in something as tragic as this.

But, we respectfully say to the members of the media and to the American people, Timothy McVeigh confessed that he was a Christian, but nobody blames the church for his misconduct. No one would blame Jesus or their pastor for unlawful and immoral behavior that is contrary to the teachings of Jesus. You have criminals, people that do horrific things, but we never know their religion. It’s not important because religion does not teach criminal behavior. Criminal behavior is an aberration. Criminal behavior is a violation. Criminal behavior is absolute rebellion toward what God teaches through the mouth of His prophets.

When thousands of American citizens engaged in an attempted insurrection, attacking the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, resulting in the deaths of five persons and injuring many, the news media did not question what their religion was.

Nowhere in the teachings of Islam, nowhere in the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, could we countenance any man taking the life of an innocent human being. For us, human life is sacred. And the violation of human life is a violation of God, Himself, because He’s the giver of life and He’s the ultimate cause of death. But He doesn’t give us the right to kill innocent people. That is against our law.

We are taught “to never be the aggressor in word or in deed”, for Allah (God) hates aggression and is not with the aggressor. This is our teaching. In fact, all of us who are members of the Nation of Islam have been instructed not to carry any weapons—not so much as a penknife—not on our persons and not in our homes. We do not rely on weapons of war to defend us. We rely on our belief and our faith in Allah (God).

We condemn the wicked mischaracterization of some media reports trying to tie this tragic incident to the teachings of the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, and all people of good will should do the same as well.

So, most of us, like you, are questioning why would this young man allegedly do such an act? If he did, what happened to him? What caused this? The family released a statement published in the Washington Post saying of Noah Green, he “was not a terrorist by any means.” He had been studying for his master’s degree in business administration but had also suffered from “depression and potential mental illness.”

It has also been reported in an article from CNN, that he shared on social media, “I have suffered multiple home break-ins, food poisoning, assaults, unauthorized operations in the hospital, mind control.”

This young man had struggled in his early life but overcame much as a student to graduate with a degree in finance. He had a wonderful, noble idea to help the black and brown people through his knowledge of finance. “I am sure,” Minister Farrakhan states, “had he been blessed to come through the crisis that he was going through, he would have been a star in the mission of the resurrection of our people. We need to know what happened to our brother.”

So, our research is continuing into what happened to this young man and we cannot rest until we find out what caused him to take a turn like this. We are saddened by the loss of this brother with such great potential.

With heavy hearts we offer sympathy and condolences to his mother, father, family and friends.

    I knew Evans personally and have worked assignments with him many times. I worked an event in 2005, I believe, with NOI marchers at the Capitol, although I dont recall if Evans was working it or not, at this point.

    What I do recall vividly is having discussions with multiple attendees who discussed some bizarre aspects of NOI beliefs.

    I happen to have Blonde hair and Green eyes, and I discussed the ‘Yakub the Scientist’ claims with one uniformed NOI attendee in particular, who was insistent that he did not believe the tale that whites with such features are ‘Devils’.

    This ‘Yakub white devils’ nonsense is baseless, it is designed to appeal to those who are mentally unable to perceive reality, and it is in fact a NOI teaching. While most people are not at all susceptible to identify with or act out on such vile teachings, some people will take “Yacub’s white devil” teachings to heart, especially when they are far enough out of touch with reality to be vulnerable.

    I would say that a really good start would be for NOI to immediately and publicly retract the ‘Yacub’s white devils’ insanity in its entirety, and denounce it for what it is – a poison in the mind of those who come to take it literally and decide to act out in response, against innocent people, whose only crime is their appearance.

    How cute. NOI psychos doing optics.

    “Nowhere in the teachings of Islam, nowhere in the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, could we countenance any man taking the life of an innocent human being.”

    Huh? Don’t you scum preach that yt is da debil? Dat evil yt dun took all the science an sheeit mang! How can you promote a worldview directly radicalizing apes against my people and claim innocence when your disciple flips and is compelled to spill white blood? Or are y’all just lacking the testicular of da real mfn jihadis?

    I see a lot of hooey bandied about concerning NOI as Le based black man. I understand you people promote segregation, which is sensible. Not bad. How about let’s dive a little deeper into your cult. Ok, maybe just the first paragraph on wikipedia.

    “A millenarian tradition, it maintains that the current Allah will soon return aboard a spaceship, the “Mother Plane” or “Mother Ship,” to wipe out the white race and inaugurate a black utopia.”

    Ah ha ha ha…

    I don’t care what negroes get up to. I would greatly prefer that they negroed about amongst themselves in their own clusters. America is a white nation made for white people and you simply do not belong here. The interesting (and pathetic) aspect of your cult is that your entire foundation myth revolves around white people. You cannot simply say:
    “Let white people be. Let white people have their own countries and enjoy their european culture.” Like white nationalists say about groids. We are not overly fond of them but we don’t believe in a cosmological extraterrestrial event descending from on high to exterminate all the children of Ham.

    Thusly is the fundamental pettiness at the foundation of your belief laid bare. Your collective ape brains couldn’t conceive of a spirituality that excludes yt getting his just desserts for handing you ingrates civilization on a fucking platter. Every belief in your cult hinges on envy for white skin, achievements, technology, and civilization. You should grovel. Clearly yakub is the hero of the story.

    But in 79% of the cases, 12% of the population are blacks committing these crimes.

    “Nowhere in the teachings of Islam, nowhere in the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, could we countenance any man taking the life of an innocent human being.”

    Jews and Muslims don’t believe the goyim/infidels are human or innocent. That’s the catch.

    “Maybe you possessor of the glorious US s’il soil sould sould have avoid import thousands of Black slaves.”

    Were this sentence easier to parse I may be inclined to declare that I am in agreement.
