Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan visited Iran as the Islamic Republic celebrated the anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Iran in 1979.
During a speech At Tehran University, Farrakhan said that the U.S. is “gloating” over new economic sanctions. He said that nothing happens without the will of Allah, and added: “Is it not true that you have called America the Great Satan? If you believe that, then wouldn’t Satan be actively involved in trying to destroy a nation that is set up on… submission to the will of God?” He also called on Iranians to persevere and to “carry forward the Revolution.”
Part of Farrakhan’s speech aired on IRINN TV on November 4, 2018.
