Farrakhan to appear at AWC despite anti-Semitic record

Minister Louis Farrakhan has two faces.

To the black community he’s a champion of black causes such as empowering husbands and fathers through his Million Man March and strengthening the nuclear black family.

To the Jewish community, he’s a rabid anti-Semite who has called Jews “bloodsuckers” and claimed that Jews were responsible for slavery.

Apparently, the two views won’t converge when Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, headlines a live town hall program, Friday, March 11, at the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, Downtown. He is expected to address the topics, “The Disappearing Black Community and How We Can Get It Back.”

The program will be broadcast as part of “The Bev Smith Show,” which originates in Pittsburgh and is nationally syndicated.

Farrakhan’s appearance doesn’t mean the August Wilson Center subscribes to his views, according to André Kimo Stone Guess, its president and CEO.

He said American Urban Radio Network, which produces “The Bev Smith Show” and partners with the center to bring a town hall series to Pittsburgh, is the entity bringing Farrakhan here.

“They wanted to bring Minister Farrakhan in and that’s just part of the program,” Guess said. “They have editorial control. I didn’t want to tell them who or what to bring… we’re not embracing his (Farrakhan’s) viewpoints one way or another.”

Whether the center hosts any given speaker or program is determined by whether it fits in with its mission, he continued.

“We believe in dialogue,” Guess said. “You can’t just dismiss anyone out of hand, say they’re different and we’re dismissing them as that. One thing the center is is inclusive.”

Asked hypothetically if the center would ever permit a member of the Ku Klux Klan to speak there, Guess replied, “Absolutely, if it were in the scope of what we were trying to do.”

Farrakhan’s attacks on Jews continue unabated.

“Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism never went away,” said Oren Segal, director of the Center on Extremism at the Anti-Defamation League, Washington, D.C. “He never truly acknowledged his anti-Semitism, let alone make amends for it or apologize.”

In the last 18 months, in fact, Segal said Farrakhan has given several speeches that have been “rife” with conspiracy theories about Jews, about Israel, discussing Jewish control of the government, Jewish control of finance in Hollywood.

“He’s left no doubt whatsoever anti-Semitism remains a central part of his message,” Segal added.

Farrakhan is currently promoting a new book put out by his organization titled “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.”

“Essentially, what this books does is insult the integrity of the Jewish religion,” Segal said. “It distorts history; it essentially argues that slavery in the New World was initiated by Jewish ship owners and merchants.”

The Nation of Islam infrastructure, which Farrakhan controls, “is geared toward demonizing Jews, and this has been especially true in the last 18 months are so,” he added. “It is troubling that some mainstream leaders, including elected officials in some parts of the country, continue to ignore this blatant record of anti-Semitism. It provides him with the level of credibility that, A, he does deserve, but, B, would not be afforded to any other known anti-Semite in this country.”

A spokeswoman for the American Urban Radio Networks did not return a call from the Chronicle seeking comment.

“We are not in any way shape or form saying we agree with everything Rev. Farrakhan says,” Guess said. “This is an open forum. You can come, get tickets and voice your views on the subject.”

The correct spelling is "F-a rrakhan" not F-e.. The correct title is "Minister" not Rev. What mind keeps one from acknowledging the truth, respectfully?... To be an analystical woman, I've studied long and trained hard how to analyze the volume in a persons voice, the expression of a face, gestures and the written words; fragments and all. Writing is a powerful tool having many expressions. Words can vividly take us to any country and feel many underlining emotions.. We also lose self respect when we deliberately misspell and pronounce names wrong.. A person of dignity and the speech of eloquence makes tasteful conversions and dialogues. We should never subject ourselves to lowly mannerisms when professing to be above the ignorant.. It is not a crime to disagree. We all have a right to dislike. Nevertheless, it is not an act of bravery nor, a sound mind of reasoning to hide behind the physical mouth piece of another.. If these claims are untrue, prove it! This is wiser than having a superficial defense so, as painful as this all is to (all) of us, put your fears aside and sit down. WE all have to heal and we all shall talk? See you soon!

First Black in Pittsburgh was a slave of a Jew!

Pittsburgh Jews are protesting the appearance tomorrow of The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan at the August Wilson Center on the Bev Smith radio show. Jews claim to be the best friends of Blacks having struggled together, they say, for justice and freedom. But the Nation of Islam's 1991-published book The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, vol. 1 confirms through Jewish historical documents that the first Black person in Pittsburgh was likely an African woman forced into slavery by a Jewish merchant named Levy Andrew Levy. Levy is notorious for having actually provided the smallpox-laden blankets to British Gen. Jeffrey Amherst to give as "gifts" to unsuspecting Indian people in the first known germ warfare attack in New World history (Several towns in America and Canada are named for the Hitler-like general). Tens of thousands of peaceful, innocent Indian people suffered horrifying deaths in this on-going germ warfare.

The book quotes a Jewish scholar who writes that Levy, “with his bride Susannah and their Negro female slave, proceeded westward on horseback trailed by a file of horses laded with...goods....Her slave, one of the first blacks in Pittsburgh...drew water, milked the cow, and cared for the horses.”

Once again this proves that the so-called Black-Jewish relationship is not based on Freedom, Justice and Equality, but rather a slave master/slave relationship. Those days are over. Why do they fear the Honorable Louis Farrakhan?

If talking about one-sided and irresponsible US foreign policies and the racist apartheid state of Israel is "anti-Semitic" as you say, I consider it a badge of honor. Being anti-Israel isn't the same as being anti-Jewish. Besides there are many Jews who are proudly against Israel including Dr. Chomsky and Dr. Finkelstein, to name a couple. Israel must abide by international law if it wants to be respected by the world community.

hmmm - if i'm in error, i certainly have no problem saying so or being corrected and what i posted is said to be history of the jewish chronicle in the united kingdom. my error.

now, mr chottiner, it was so easy for you to respond to that but what is your answer to the question you were asked: do you consider yourself to be a zionist? and is there any type of affiliation between the UK jewish chronicle and your paper?

Things that make you go hmmm, indeed. The Jewish Chronicle wasn't established until 1962. Check our masthead.

i should have done my google searching prior to commenting, then i wouldn't have had to ask my last question. very informative history about the link between zionism and the jewish chronicle can be found here: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/judaica/ejud_0002_0011_0_10126.html

including this: "....the Jewish Chronicle remained firmly Zionist until Greenberg's death in 1931. In that year, Leopold Kessler became chairman of the board of directors, and the paper resumed a lukewarm Zionist line...."

things that make you go hmmm...

good day, mr. chottiner.

well thank you mr chottiner, those take you much closer to posting something relevant to your [false] claim, but they don't prove that he ever used the term "bloodsucker." and they serve to prove that he was directing his comments here:

"You are not real Jews, those of you that are not real Jews. You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the U.S. government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell."

now, there's a slang saying that 'only a hit dog hollers', so if the minister specifically said he was directing his comments to those jews who fit the description - they would be zionists - if you and other offended jews are not zionists, what are you upset about?

do you consider yourself a zionist, mr chottiner?

I have read the quotes, sir:

"And you do with me as is written, but remember that I have warned you that Allah will punish you. You are wicked deceivers of the American people. YOU HAVE SUCKED THEIR BLOOD. You are not real Jews, those of you that are not real Jews. You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the U.S. government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell. But I warn you in the name of Allah, you would be wise to leave me alone. But if you choose to crucify me, know that Allah will crucify you."

Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, 2/25/96

OR...

"You say I hate Jews. I don't hate the Jewish people, I never have. But there [are] some things I don't like. 'What is it you don't like, Farrakhan?' I DON'T LIKE THE WAY YOU LEECH ON US. SEE A LEECH IS SOMEBODY THAT SUCKS YOUR BLOOD, TAKES FROM YOU AND DON'T GIVE YOU A DAMN THING. See, I don't like that kind of arrangement. You become our manager, you become our agent. Every one of us that got talent, we can't make it because you opened the door, and when you opened the door you get and we end up dead with nothing, owing the IRS."

i have to agree with CAmil, mr. chottiner. did you even bother to read any of the numerous quotes that you put up? it doesn't appear so. it seems you're more operating like a controlled puppet who cannot think, read or make rational conclusions for himself. if you're content to be a puppet, more power to you but it's a very unbecoming and lowly position for any person of intelligence to accept.

and did any of the numerous quotes you robotically put up disprove what i previously said you LIED about? you made the [false] claim that min. farrakhan called jews bloodsuckers .... where is your proof? and if you have none, where is the so-called proof that you would post from someone else?

are you a liar, manipulator and purveyor of deception, mr. chottiner? and if you are, would that not make you one of those that the bible [non minister farrakhan] originally referred to as being of the "synagogue of satan," of those who "claim to be jews but do lie." that's in the bible. is the bible anti-semitic too?

The ADL is a reputable and legitimate organization that is quoted by the entire mainstream media — and I make no apologies for quoting Mr. Segal, who is an expert on extremist organizations. But Rev. Farrakhan's statements are still on the table, and you haven't addressed them.

If Rev. Farrakhan isn't anti-Semitic, why does he constantly refer to "the Jews" as if we have regular monthly meetings to plot and collude. The mere fact that he refers to the Jews monolithically is undeniable proof of his prejudice. Jews are a diverse people. They are conservatives and liberals, religious and secular, businessmen (no, we don't control the banking industry or Hollywood, as Rev. Farrakhan claims) and other professionals; we're white collar and blue collar. But to Rev. Farrakhan, we're just "the Jews" — one big target.

Rev. Farrakhan has made appalling and hate-filled statements about the Jews. Attacking the ADL won't make them go away; killing the messenger has gone out of style. HIs statements are here; they're fully attributed, and they speak for themselves.

Mr. Chottiner, the Executive Editor, in his response demonstrated my point. Exactly why I used the term, "friendly & obedient media outlets" in my previous post. Was his article a PR piece for the ADL?

Consider this: The Executive Editor, who "wrote" the story uses as the basis for his article, the words of the ADL's representative Oren Segal.

After being politely challenged and chided, he then posts a list of quotes from the ADL. (Note: Farrakhan's speeches often last two hours or more, and they selectively take one sound bite out of context for an excerpt) He then passes it off as being journalistic research and proceeds to regurgitate the ADL's talking points.

Oy vey!

Why not write a REAL article with some REAL research, not just cut & paste from ADL's dastardly "dossier"?

Why not rationally deal with the points made by Farrakhan?

Rabin sat & talked w/ Arafat after generations of blood had been spilled.

Of even the selected quotes you used as your "evidence," none can really be seen as anti-Semitism, unless you are suggesting that the Jewish people, or Zionists are above criticism.

You aren't suggesting that are you? Mr. Chottiner?

I don't normally get involved in this comment section, but I'll make an exception in this case.

Below is an extensive list of anti-Semitic comments — and, yes, they ARE anti-Semitic — made by Rev. Farrakhan. Each and every one contains attribution, including the ones where he compares Jews to leaches who suck blood.

The story is accurate and true:

“How did we get a Black president? Because those Satanic Jews know the time that this is the time of your separation from them that God wants to give you a land of your own as the cornerstone of the Kingdom of God… You didn’t see when they got in the room and said ‘we have to deceive them and through them deceive the entire world’… How could they be the chosen of God and leading the world into filth and indecency?”

“They stole land in Palestine… And this Synagogue of Satan knows that the end of their time of rule is up. The jig is up.”

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

“If they go to war with Iran, which they’re setting the stage for now, it’ll be because the Zionists have pushed Obama to do their bidding and… to put a black face on an illegitimate war and use black and brown and poor white to fight a war for the Ashkenazi false Jews that have come out of Europe. These same people started apartheid in Africa. The same Jews are guilty of Jim Crow and the laws that segregated us and they’re the same forces that are in Palestine right now telling Palestinians in their own land what roads they can travel on and what they’re not free to travel on.”

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

“White people, although they hated us, are not the architects of white supremacy. That started in Europe and it is here in America and we document the architecture of white supremacy in this volume, Volume 2 The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews.”

Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10

“This thing called anti-Semitism this is what I want to deal with, so that never again when somebody is critical of Israeli policy or Jewish misbehavior that all of a sudden we are called anti-Semitic. I will prove to the world that those who even use the term are not Semitic at all.”

Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10

“I know that by singling out not all Jews, but those specific irreligious Jews that the scripture calls the Synagogue of Satan, those who use their power to influence people away from the way of God, making evil fair-seeming to them … these irreligious Jews who claim they are Jews and they are not. They blaspheme the name of a Jew; a Jew is a good name. There’s deception here and the deceiver and the deception has to be exposed.”

Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10

“We could charge you with being the most virulent anti-Black group in the annals of our history. I didn’t say we would, I said we could. I used the conditional tense. I said we could charge you with being the most deceitful person acting, playing with our friend while you have been our worst enemy.”

“You are of the Synagogue of Satan and therefore will be dealt with by God.”

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

“Now, Jews are very sensitive people. If you even look like you’re gonna criticize them they get very defensive. And you could say they’re defensive because of what they suffered in Europe. That may be one reason. But the main reason is, see when somebody has lied, and stolen your birthright, the one thing they fear is not your guns, because they got some bigger. They don’t fear your so-called scholarship ‘cause they arranged your education. And they never taught you anything that would allow you to upset their rule. But what they fear most is the truth.”

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

“I’ve asked [the Jewish people], ‘since your people put ours in this condition, why don’t you help me raise our people up from the degraded state that your people have put them in.’”

“Other than the Bible there is no historical record of anybody names Jews in bondage in Egypt in 400 years… you have to keep your eyes open for the game that may be put over on you by a smart crooked deceiver. Now there’s no historical record of their suffering in bondage like that—now they were freed from a bondage alright—but that was in the hills and cave sides of Europe.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“These people have no legitimate connection to that land. They didn’t come into existence in the Holy Land.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“Jewish people claim Abraham. Sorry. Sorry. I have to tell you the masquerade is over.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“Do you know that in Europe in every nation where they were, they led an industry in commerce in trade in banking? And the gentiles were angry with them because everywhere they went, they ruled. So the gentiles rose up against the Jews and persecuted them in Europe.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“When they came to America they went into the South and there they found common ground with the gentiles who hated black people, because that same Babylonian Talmud, the rabbis developed the myth of Ham. That you and I are the children of Ham, cursed, black, doomed… So when they got in the South they just fueled the gentiles with the curse of Ham and that has spread throughout the world. It has poisoned the bloodstream of Islam, of Christianity, of Judaism, of Communism, of Socialism.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“I’m here to tell you no black man or woman becomes a multimillionaire without friendship in the Jewish community…. Did you know that nearly all prominent Negro actors and musicians have or had Jewish sponsors and managers? …They have a way of attaching themselves to your gifts, but you get nothing. They get it all.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“And do you know that when our brother was elected, Jewish people wrote, as Bill Clinton was the first Black president, Barack Obama would be the first Jewish president. Now that’s a terrible thing to say but they were telling you, ‘we own the brother.’ His early money came from Goldman Sachs. He was nurtured by Jews who saw in him his brilliance. He’s a beautiful human being. And they knew that as brilliant as he was, they could use him to trick black people away from the promise of God.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“He’s president now and he’s upsetting them. Because all the Jewish presidents met him in the Oval Office and told him to go easy on Israel and settlements in the West Bank. And because he was strong out of Israel they started calling him what they been calling me: an anti-Semite.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“A lecture like this has put me in deep trouble with those forces that run this world. I have never been more prepared in my life to do what it takes, even if it’s the loss of my life, to free you. But I can tell you, they killed their last prophet when they killed Jesus.”

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

“Since he's been in office, [Obama] surrounded himself [with] certain very powerful elements—Zionists—within the Jewish community; and has brought around him as ‘advisers’ some of those from Goldman Sachs, who advised him about this bailout money. Our brother, now, is disappointing to some aspects of that community, and that is the beginning of the end. Because, when they're disappointed with you, the force that they have, the power that they have, the influence that they have is gradually turned against you if you don't submit.”

"I'm not an anti-Semite, I never have been one. I do not hate the Jewish people; put that down! What I hate is the degree of control that they exercise over Black intellectual, cultural expression. I do not think that no human being should determine how high we can go, that can only be determined by God and by us; not by no white man, no black man, no human being [crowd cheers]."

Millions More Movement rally, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 8/31/05

"Now the thinking of these neoconservatives is written of in scripture. In the book of Revelations, 2 and 9, it reads, 'I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not but are a synagogue of Satan.' What is the blasphemy? A Jew is a noble name. A Jew means one who is in a covenant relationship with God in obedience to the divine laws, statues and commandments of God. But these people claim to be Jews but they're not in obedience to God's law, they have given a mission of evil a divine look on it. And George W. Bush has swallowed that bait, hook line and sinker. The synagogue of Satan is a gathering of persons of like mind and spirit who are in opposition to the will of God. So Paul said we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers that are not of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places.

"I call them the so-called Jews because to be a Jew you have to adhere to the statutes and laws that create the special relationship. How can you be a Jew and promote homosexual marriage?"

National Black Agenda Convention, Boston, 3/18/04

"See, you so called Jews – I'm not gonna give you the credit for being one of those that obey God. You portrayed us, you know what images do, that's why you jumped on Mel Gibson. But you painted us, big lips, red eyes, kinky hair, you put in the movies like that. You mocked our characteristics and made us to hate God's creation of us. You did that. Hollywood did that….You take our strongest, more courageous black minds, you think we don't see you? And you put us in Hollywood. You give us television shows, and then we gotta bug our eyes."

Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, 2/29/04

"You don't mention the horror of our suffering. Here's why…it's because of something called the Hamitic curse. Now I know that this is kinda rough. But according to the Babylonian scholars, writers of the Talmud, not the Torah, but Talmud. Now I want you to listen….Look at this now, the Hamitic curse was written off in the Talmud 400 years after the birth of Jesus. And the way they wrote it was, I got to find the exact words, 'cause it's really powerful….Oh, Lord, let me find it. I'm gonna take my time. Oh boy, well I'm gonna say it, in the Talmud they talk abut because he looked at Noah in that condition and marked the redness of his eyes, the turning of his head made these kinks in his hair, the thickness of his lips – that's our features. We were black and cursed.

Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, 2/29/04

"But what you have in the Bible has been added to and taken away from by the Jews. Oh here goes this anti-Semite.' This Koran says that the Jews have altered the word of God out of its place. They did not want the masters of the people to know what Jesus really said, what Moses really said, because then you wouldn't have a yardstick to measure their deviations."

--"What is Islam?," speech at Mosque Maryam,

Chicago, 11/23/03

"What had they done to deserve such a harsh judgment from God? Those who are Jews and those who are Christians, those who believe in Allah on the last day, they have their reward from their Lord. There are beautiful members of the Jewish community who are trying their utmost to follow the law and the teachings of Moses and the prophets that God sent to Israel. But there's another Jew who is not really a Jew. He is an imposter posing as Jew. In the Bible, in the book of Revelations [it] says… 'Those who say they are Jews and are not, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan.' Who are the masters of Hollywood, how could you be a righteous Jew and promote that which is forbidden by the God of Israel? Come on now. How could you be a righteous Jew and publish the filth that is published daily feeding the minds of the American people and the people of the world filth and indecency, and making it fair seeming in their eye?"

"What is Islam?," speech at Mosque Maryam,

Chicago, 11/23/03

"We know that the most powerful people in the country, many of whom are Jews, don't like Farrakhan."

What is Islam?," speech at Mosque Maryam,

Chicago, 11/23/03

"Even though the Koran says and the prophet Mohammed predicted that the Mahdi would come, somebody would come as a guide. Why? Because his own community had lost the path that he had put them on. Christians, you have lost the path that Jesus put you on. And the Jewish or Hebrew community lost the path that Moses and the prophets of Israel put the Jewish people on. We're off that path."

--8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

"When Jesus was preaching, his enemies were the scribes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, He was preaching in the Roman Empire, and the people wanted to trap him for the Roman authorities. But under the Roman authorities were the Jewish religious authorities. They were wrapped in the law. But they were wrapped in the letter, but not in the spirit. Jesus was more than a man of the letter, Jesus was a man of the spirit. But he said, 'I didn't come to change the law. I came to fulfill that which was written in the law.' There's a whole lot difference between a man that gives the law and a man who fulfills what is written in the law… He did something that they thought was contrary to the law. And sometimes when you're a religious hypocrite, you use your knowledge of the law to hide a self-righteous hypocrisy."

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, 10/16/03

"See how you can see Jesus in ancient Rome. See how you can use or see the rabbinical scholars, the Levites, the Sadducees, the Pharisees, and their attack on the master? … See how Pontius Pilate washed his hands of the matter? See how they [the Jews] brought him into court on false charges? See how they plotted to crucify him? And it's easy to sing about what was. It's difficult to believe that what was, is. The Rome of yesterday is nothing to the America of today."

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

"You say I hate Jews. I don't hate the Jewish people, I never have. But there [are] some things I don't like. 'What is it you don't like, Farrakhan?' I don't like the way you leech on us. See a leech is somebody that sucks your blood, takes from you and don't give you a damn thing. See, I don't like that kind of arrangement. You become our manager, you become our agent. Every one of us that got talent, we can't make it because you opened the door, and when you opened the door you get and we end up dead with nothing, owing the IRS."

"So from that point on, when I said that, the next day, in New York, a rabbi was on television calling me the new black Hitler. Now what is that? You are so used to black people cowing down that you're not used to a man talking to another man? So you're gonna call me Hitler, a man who had nothing in his heart but the murder of Jews. You're gonna put that on me, so that any of your children will feel that it's an honor for me to be dead. And then some of them come out where I'm speaking, said, 'Who do you want, Farrakhan! How do you want him? Dead.' Did you think we were gonna take that crap sitting down? Do you want to ignite revolution all over America? Is that what you want? Do you want the anger of God? So what I'm saying to my Christian friends-there has not been a black leader in America locked in a struggle with the Jewish community but Louis Farrakhan. Now open your eyes. Name me one. When it comes to someone being a black anti-Semite who do they single out, who is made the litmus test when you go to work and they ask you what do you think about Farrakhan? They ain't asking you a damn thing about nobody else. Why me? Did you ever stop to consider who are the scribes. The Latin word, scribo, meaning 'I write.' For 18 years they have written against me, more than any black leader before or since. The scribes, who are these Pharisees? See, who are they, who are these guys? They call themselves Muslims. But they're not true. That's what they said about Jesus. He wasn't true. Because you felt he went outside of the law."

"I'm not into integration. I ain't for that. God told the Jews, he didn't want you intermarrying with others. But you disobeyed him. He don't want us uniting into this that he's come to judge… You can't integrate with wickedness if you want righteousness."

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

"You can go to Palestine, called Israel today, you can see Sodom, you can see Gomorrah, ain't nothing built there. God hadn't let anything be built there to show you his displeasure against homosexual behavior. Now the church says it's all right. I was an Episcopalian before I was a Muslim, and I liked my church. I can't remember anybody in the church, if they were gay they were hiding that. They were sure acting like men, you know what I mean."

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

"I don't hate Jews. I honor and respect those who try to live according to the teachings of the Torah, but you can't criticize Jewish people. If you criticize them you are anti-Semitic. If you don't agree with what they are doing, you are anti-Semitic. The Bible says, Revelations, those who say they are Jews and are not, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan. I don't hear you preaching that full Gospel. You are afraid of consequences. But no man can say he's a Jew and promote homosexuality. No man can say he's a Jew and promote that which is against the commandments of God. No man can say he's a Jew and run the despicable, degenerate movies. The filth and degenerate language."

Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, 2/23/03

Farrakhan on past anti-Semitic remarks:

"I can never apologize for telling the truth... I can apologize for the manner of telling the truth."

BET Tonight with Travis Smiley, 9/11/00-9/12/00

Farrakhan on Sen. Joseph Lieberman:

"Mr. Lieberman, as an orthodox Jew, is also a dual citizen of Israel."

Los Angeles Times, 8/12/00

Farrakhan: "Is the Federal Reserve owned by the government?"

Audience: "No."

Farrakhan: "Who owns the federal reserve?"

Audience: "Jews."

Farrakhan: "The same year they set up the IRS, they set up the FBI. And the same year they set up the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith… It could be a coincidence… [I want] to see black intellectuals free… I want to see them not controlled by members of the Jewish community."

Dallas Observer on-line, 8/10/00

Farrakhan on Jewish control:

Farrakhan said that he is fighting the "inordinate control" some Jews have over Blacks, particularly in entertainment and business.

Associated Press, 7/31/00

"They [the Jews] are the greatest controllers of Black minds, Black intelligence. They write the scripts -- the foolish scripts on television that our people portray. They are the movie moguls that feature us in these silly, degrading, degenerate roles. The great recording companies that portray our people in such a filthy and low-rating way, yet they would not allow such a man as Michael Jackson to say one word that they thought would besmirch their reputation, but they put us before the world as clowns and as purveyors of filth. No, I will fight that."

Meet The Press interview, 10/18/98

"Of course, they [the Jews] have a very small number of people but they are the most powerful in the world, they have the power to do good and they have the power to do evil...Now what do the Jews do best? Well, they have been the best in finance that the world has ever known...They finance a lot of stuff in the world, and there's nothing wrong with that, but they are not good politicians, they are the worst politicians because they don't recognize really their friends and as well their enemies..."

Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, 2/22/98

"I believe that for the small numbers of Jewish people in the United States, they exercise a tremendous amount of influence on the affairs of government...Yes, they exercise extraordinary control, and Black people will never be free in this country until they are free of that kind of control..."

Meet The Press interview, 4/14/97

"To continue to point out the truth of that control and how that control never will allow us to be full and completely men, free, justified, and equal. Why should we be controlled by the power, influence, and money of others? We should not be under that kind of control...going to Jewish philanthropists, begging them for money to support our causes, and through that money, there is control, and that kind of control limits the freedom of our people to speak freely, write freely, think freely, and act as free men..."

Meet The Press interview, 4/14/97

"And you do with me as is written, but remember that I have warned you that Allah will punish you. You are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood. You are not real Jews, those of you that are not real Jews. You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the U.S. government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell. But I warn you in the name of Allah, you would be wise to leave me alone. But if you choose to crucify me, know that Allah will crucify you."

Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, 2/25/96

"I don't own Hollywood. Who depicted Black people? Who writes the books? Who writes the plays, the songs that make us look less than human? Do you mean to tell me that Jews have never done any evil to Black people?...Were they not involved in the slave trade? Yes, they were...and to the extent that they were involved, somebody has to bring them to account. And I believe that has fallen on me."

I think Mr. Guess made an OUTSTANDING suggestion that Ms. Oren & her ilk at the ADL should consider:

He said: “This is an open forum. You can come, get tickets and voice your views on the subject.”

I'd like to see that! Of course, the ADL, Wiesenthal Ctr. and SPLC prefer to hurl specious claims of anti-Semitism & lies through friendly & obedient media outlets.

If Farrakhan were the "rabid anti-Semite" they claim him to be, given his powerful oratory & acknowledged influence, there would be a nationwide police blotter full of hate crimes committed against Jews by Blacks who support & follow him. There aren't because he is not.

What about the NUMEROUS occasions in which members of the Jewish Defense League & Jewish Defense Organization have chanted "Who do you want? Farrakhan! How do you want him? Dead!" Yes, that is correct, they are actually advocating his assassination!

What hypocrisy! What a double standard! The ADLs influence is shrinking and their lies are being exposed. Thank goodness, eyes are being opened by the work of Farrakhan & those courageous enough to take a stand on behalf of truth!

lies & half truths once again being used in an attempt to manipulate the emotions of people and rouse up hatred against min. farrakhan and the NOI. when will some of you jews stop this sort of foolishness and low-level behavior?

"To the Jewish community, he’s a rabid anti-Semite who has called Jews “bloodsuckers” and claimed that Jews were responsible for slavery."

the minister has not called jews "bloodsuckers" nor has he claimed they are [solely] responsible for slavery. he has pointed the finger at all the peoples [african, arab, white and jewish] who played a part in the slave trade. jews were not exempt and only lovers of lies and untruths would expect that people should point out the role others played in it but leave out the role of the jews.

"The Nation of Islam infrastructure, which Farrakhan controls, “is geared toward demonizing Jews, and this has been especially true in the last 18 months are so..”

LIES. the NOI has ALWAYS been geared towards the upliftment and self-improvement of black people, particularly those in america who are descendants of "slaves."

how self-absorbed can you be? the book, secret relationship between blacks and jews, uses multiple [jewish] sources as the base for what is claimed in the book. if making the book available for sale is what you're referring to as the "demonizing" you say has been going on for 18 months, that's absolutely ridiculous. when will you, and those jews who think like you, get over yourself? it's not "all about you," even though some/many of you try to make it that way ... ALL THE TIME.
