The Representative of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, Imam Earl Abdulmalik Mohammed answers further questions on Climate Change

Nathan Beyah

Brother Imam, Vladimir Putin has said Russia will fight for an independent Palestinian state, and called for the issues of the Middle East to be resolved through peaceful means. Iā€™m trying to give context to this message, based on your message, and as a measuring stick for my understanding of your message.

Imam Earl Abdulmalik Mohammed

A new order in the world. A new order meaning new bases of power and authority. New nations that didn't exist before. New national borders. A re-arrangement of the thinking of world populations based on the re-alignment of loyalties. Nations that stood for one thing will stand for something else. A change in the disposition of leaders toward the people. A change in the spirit of the people toward leaders. A change in the attitudes of people toward each other because of the change in the ruling elite and the decisions they have made not respecting the people - case in point is our community. The ruler in Joseph's story saw the destruction of crops and cattle devouring each other. He saw the straw being taken out of the people's world. He was a good ruler and wanted an answer, but the elites around him created the problem and they pretended they could not understand what to do. Joseph saw the problem and the answer.

Putin and Trump are the cattle devouring each other, and the Palestinians are the failed crops. Joseph's answer was attention on the quality of the people. He didn't address the cattle, he addressed the crops and asked that they be preserved. He wanted to draw attention to the organic life, the straw, the human nature and life. The answer was attention to the common human existence, and that would heal the society and ward off the effects of the climate change.
