* Malcolm X * (1925-1965) MUSLIM CULT OF ISLAM [Bureau Deletion] the Muslim Cult of Islam, which is also known as the Allah Temple of Islam, is a religious cult whose members regard Allah as their supreme being and claim to be the direct descendants of the original race on earth. The members fanatically follow the teachings of Allah as interpreted by Elijah Muhammad, the "true prophet of Allah" entitled titular head of the Muslim Cult of Islam in the United States, and believe that any civil law [that] conflicts with the Muslim law should be disobeyed.

According to the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and the cult's ministers, the members of a minority race in the United States are not citizens of this country but merely slaves of this country and will continue to be slaves until they free themselves by destroying non-Muslims and Christianity in the "War of Armaggeddon."
