Speaking in Iran, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan warned U.S. President Donald Trump to not pull “the trigger of war in the Middle East at the insistence of Israel.”

The 85-year-old, known for his anti-Semitic vitriol, blasted Trump for reimposing sanctions on Iran earlier this week. There, he led a chant of “Death to Israel” in Farsi, according to Iranian media.

“[I am] begging our president and the government that supports him to be very, very careful.”

“The war will trigger another kind of war which will bring China, Russia, all of the nations into a war and … the war will end America as you know it,” he said.

This development comes just weeks after NOI posted a video on Facebook of Farrakhan comparing Jews to “termites.”
