Dr. Nkrumah and all the other African Revolutionaries were clear on the dangers of the age old tactic of divide and conquer. In Africa the primary forms of this tactic is to attempt to divide Africa into "black" and "arab" Africa. No true revolutionary, no true son or daugther of Africa would endorse or facilitate such treason. What would Malcolm say if he were here today and some one was talking against his relationship with the Nasser government for example? What would Lumumba think of those who want to declare war on the Egyptian goverment and the Algerian revolution, both supporters of the Lumumbaist struggle...what would Garvey had thought of those who would try to attack his relationship with Egyptian - Sudanese Dusé Mohamed Ali? They would say that such individuals are in the employ of white supremacy, and particularly wedded to the imperialist, racist, colonialist zionist movement. Even today we have to fight this phenomena, I cite one quote:
"I appeal to all of our African brothers and sisters, that we cannot afford Arab-African disunity. The enemy would like to put sub-Saharan Africa against North Africa that happens to be Arab... they are working feverishly to divide Black Africa from Arab Africa. We cannot afford to let them do that. Arab Africa and Black Africa must be One Africa. As it was with Gamel Abdel Nasser and Kwame Nkrumah in the vision of a United Africa, so it is that an Arab brother who is African, Brother Muammar Gadhafi, is the greatest voice for change on the African continent today. We must not let that be a point of division."
Real revolution begins in the mind
By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
Think on this carefully, because it is the critical tactic of our enemies and must be exposed and eradicated without pity or other dangerous sentiment.
