ROSEMONT, Ill., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi is still his friend and America is ripe for revolution.

In a speech to nearly 18,000 followers at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., Sunday, Farrakhan said if Gadhafi is to be prosecuted for war crimes, former President George W. Bush should be as well, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Farrakhan predicted the United States would see revolts like those in the Middle East.

"What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt, Libya, in Bahrain, what you see happening there … you'd better prepare because it will be coming to your door," he said.

Farrakhan also praised the controversial Church of Scientology and its late founder, L. Ron Hubbard, the Chicago Tribune reported.

"L. Ron Hubbard is so exceedingly valuable to every Caucasian person on this Earth," Farrakhan said. "L. Ron Hubbard himself was and is trying to civilize white people and make them better human beings and take away from them their reactive minds."

He also denounced gay people and said Jewish exploitation of blacks should be taught on schools.
