Malcolm Latif Shabazz 29, grandson of world renowned Afro-American Muslim human rights activist, Malcolm X (Al-Hajj Malik el Shahbaz) died in a Mexico city hospital as result of racial beating on Thursday. Mexico’s attorney general’s office said a murder investigation was under way.
Malcolm Latif Shabazz was born in Paris, France in 1984. His mother Qubilah Shabazz, was one of Malcolm X‘s six daughters. She was only four years old when her father was killed right in front of her at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem in 1965.
12-year-old Malcolm Shabazz was framed with allegedly setting a fire which killed his grandmother Dr. Betty Shabazz. He was shuttled in and out of correctional institutions until his release from Attica Prison in February 2007.
In February 2013, under pressure from Jewish lobby groups, the FBI stoppped Malcolm Shabazz from attending the International Fajr Festival in Tehran. America’s powerful Israeli advocacy group, ADL, issued a statement condemning the conference and calling its particpants – “conspiracy theorists, Israel and Jew haters”.
“Not surprisingly, Iran is once again at the forefront of promoting classical antisemitic conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel while giving legitimacy to a rouge’s gallery of conspirational antisemitics and anti-Zionists,” said Abraham Foxman, head of ADL. According to 2012 survey published by Jewish daily Forward (December 10, 2012) Foxman is America’s second highest paid Israeli lobbyist. He received $688,280 excluding benefits in 2011.
Malcolm Shabazz gave an exclusive interview to Aliya S. King for NewsOne published on June 12, 2012. Read the interview here.
Alex Haley in “Autobiography of Malcolm X” wrote: “Through a life of passion and struggle, Malcolm X became one of the most influential figures of the 20th Century. In this riveting account, he tells of his journey from a prison cell to Mecca, describing his transition from hoodlum to Muslim minister. Here, the man who called himself “the angriest Black man in America” relates how his conversion to true Islam helped him confront his rage and recognize the brotherhood of all mankind.”
Malcolm X was the most hated Afro-American activist by the pro-Israel groups. Even though, after performing Hajj and leaving the Nation of Islam (NOI) sect – and changing his earlier racist views of Whites and Jews – he never stopped criticizing Zionists and the Zionist entity.
“Did the Zionists have the legal or moral right to invade Arab Palestine, uproot its Arab citizens from their homes and seize all Arab property for themselves just based on the “religious” claim that their forefathers lived there thousands of years ago? Only a thousand years ago the Moors lived in Spain. Would this give the Moors of today the legal and moral right to invade the Iberian Peninsula, drive out its Spanish citizens, and then set up a new Moroccan nation – where Spain used to be, as the European zionists have done to our Arab brothers and sisters in Palestine?,” said Malcolm X.
In an interview early this year, Malcolm X’s daughter Malaak Shabazz told Sahara TV that FBI, CIA and NOI were behind the assassination of her father. Watch the video below.
Minister Luois Farrakhan, head of Nation of Islam (NOI) in a recent interview rejected the accusation levied against him and NIO in the new movie Betty and Coretta being involved in the assassination of Malcolm X.
“The Jewish people behind this film have characterized Farrakhan as the “No.1 anti-Semite”. That was the title they gave Brother Malcolm X while he was alive; now, they have given it to me,” said Farrakhan.
