Former three-times world boxing champion and the most hated Muslim sportsman by the Jewish Lobby, Muhammad Ali, died on Friday (June 3) at age 74.
Innalilahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Rajioon (To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return).
Ali who suffered from Parkinson’s syndrome for over three decades died a day after he was admitted to a Phoenix-area hospital with a respiratory ailment.
Muhammad Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. into a middle-class Afro-American Christian family on Jan. 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky.
Ali started boxing when he was 12, winning Golden Gloves titles before heading to the 1960 Olympics in Rome, where he won a gold medal as a light heavyweight. On his return, he announced that had joined Nation of Islam, which is considered heretic by many Islamic scholars based on its belief that like Jesus, God also appeared in the person of NOI founder WD Fard. That’s the beginning of Ali’s problems with the Organized Jewry. After the death of sect’s leader Elijah Muhammad, Muhammad Ali like Malcolm X left Nation of Islam and joined mainstream Islam.
In 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War, Ali was drafted to serve in the US Army. He’d said previously that the war did not comport with his new faith, and that he had “no quarrel” with America’s enemy, the Vietcong. He refused to serve. As result, Ali was stripped-off all awards, vilified by the Jewish-controlled media and dragged into courts as “draft-dodger”, and sentenced to jail for five years.
In 2005, Dubya Bush honored Ali with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for which Bush was criticized by Abraham Foxman, then head of Jewish lobby group ADL, and America’s notorious Muslim-hater Dr. Daniel Pipes.
Divorced three times and the father of nine children — one of whom, Laila, become a boxer. Ali married his last wife, Yolanda “Lonnie” Williams, in 1986; they lived for a long time in Berrien Springs, Michigan, then moved to Arizona.
Muhammad Ali has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to over two dozen charities and foundations including UNICEF, Athletes For Hope, Beat Bullying, Michael J. Fox Foundation, and Muhammad Ali Center.
Muhammad Ali’s last public appearance was at the 22nd Anniversary of Celebrity Fight Night on April 9, 2016 (here).
Professor Francis A. Boyle’s (University of Illinois) tribute to the ‘Champ’:
Hitching back to UC north on Stoney Island
Through the Black Belt
Not very smart
But I was young, felt invulnerable, and had street smarts
A well off Black Businessman picks me up in a Lincoln
A White Boy like you should not be hitch-hiking through this Black neighborhood
Of course he was right
Maybe that’s why he picked me up
To look out for me
A Black Angel?
Said nothing in response, just smiled
Said he was a business manager for Muhammad Ali
LOL I said to myself, but just smiled and said nothing
You see that Black Fleetwood up there coming south
Up pulled a Black Cadillac Limo as big as a boat
Driving it was Muhammad Ali
Champion of the World
And hell no I won’t go
A great fighter, and a great man
Simply the Greatest
He was driving with the right hand, left on the side of the car
Wearing white shirt
Young, Black, beautiful, charismatic, dynamic
I was stunned, mouth agape
All traffic stopped on Stoney, now King
As the two of them shot the breeze
No one cared, it was Ali
Then he continued south
My driver told the truth
Shall never forget that day
When a White kid
Hitching through the Black Belt
Met Muhammad Ali
It was simply the Greatest
And he was and shall always be the Greatest.
Hell no, I wont go!
We all knew Ali was a great fighter
That made him a great man
