Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Judge dismisses UN, Haiti cholera lawsuit

U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken of the Southern District of New York made the ruling last month, dismissing the 2013 lawsuit against the United Nations [Delama Georges, et al, Plaintiffs versus United Nations, et al, Defendants] for introducing cholera in Haiti in October 2010.

Activists vow to continue their fight to bring justice to the hundreds of thousands victimized by the disease, which had not been in Haiti for over 100 years.
