Farrakhan Blames Jews for Financial Ruin of Blacks


louis-farrakhanWith a letter to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) enclosing two virulently anti-Semitic “histories,” including a newly written volume claiming Jews for centuries have worked to financially undermine black people, Minister Louis Farrakhan has “opened a new chapter in his ministry where scapegoating Jews is no longer just part of a message, but the message.”In the letter addressed to ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman, Minister Farrakhan accused Jewish leaders of using accusations of anti-Semitism as a means to hide the truth and to silence criticism “of what I and many others feel is Jewish behavior that has ill-affected Black people and others.” 

Minister Farrakhan’s June 24 letter was sent to numerous American Jewish leaders along with copies of the now two-volume work, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” an anti-Semitic screed written and published by the Nation of Islam’s “Historical Research Department.”

“Never, in our more than 20 years of following Minister Louis Farrakhan, have we seen him so obsessively devoted to his hate crusade against Jews,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. “His anti-Semitism is obsessive, diabolical and unrestrained. He has opened a new chapter in his ministry where scapegoating Jews is not just part of a message, but the message.”

Farrakhan’s missive accused Foxman and other Jewish leaders of being guilty of “the most vehement anti-Black behavior in the annals of our history in America and the world,” before extending an offer of dialogue to “help me in the repair of my people from the damage that has been done by your ancestors to mine.”

Farrakhan wrote that his message was not written out of hatred or bitterness, but because “One greater than you and me has permitted this for His own wise purposes.”

Mr. Foxman said, “Dialogue does not begin with bigoted accusations. Farrakhan’s call for dialogue with Jews is so outrageous and disingenuous that you can’t believe anyone would take him seriously. And yet he continues to fill convention centers with those eager to bear witness to his bigotry, and to believe that he holds the truth. One wonders why there aren’t more voices in the African-American community willing to stand up and reject his hatred, his anti-Semitism. When will good people in the community be courageous enough to stand up and say, ‘enough already?'”

During a sold-out speech on June 26 to thousands of followers at the Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Farrakhan, whose anti-Semitic rhetoric has been monitored by ADL for decades, announced his intention to present the newly written anti-Semitic book to Jewish leaders on behalf of the NOI. Like the book itself, Farrakhan’s speech was rife with conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel and Jewish control of government, finance and Hollywood.

Farrakhan told the crowd that he had also sent copies of “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” to various media outlets and members of the Obama Administration.

“Today the Jewish people have developed a new strategy,” he told the audience in the speech, titled “Who are the Real Children of Israel?” “They have always tied themselves to Black people. They attach themselves to our talent. They are the managers, the agents and they are the accountants and that’s why our black artists loved fame and got fame but died poor because somebody else got their money.”

“No black man or woman becomes a multimillionaire without friendship in the Jewish community,” he added.

  1. This rasha’s anti Jewish diatribes have been going on for long enough. In this country he is entitled to say what he feels. You have to respect a man who is not afraid to say what is on his mind.

    On the other hand, why don’t any white or Jewish leaders get up and also speak their minds?

    Every dilapdated urban blighted neighborhood, now a slum, was once a beautiful, safe white/Jewish neighborhood. (Harlem, Brwonsville, East Flatbush, etc etc).

    In this respect, Farakan is to be admired. I am waiting for a white/Jewish leader to have the guts to “tell it like it is” from OUR STANDPOINT.

  2. “the most vehement anti-Black behavior in the annals of our history in America and the world,”
    Is he implying that Jewish groups are worse than slavery? The Dishonorable Minister Farrakhan is a sick joke. If the media stopped giving him the spotlight every time he says something unintelligent and if his followers woke up to what kind of a fraud he is, then he wouldn’t be a problem.

  3. Their silence speaks their approval of what they would also say if they had the guts. Either they are complacent,or they hate us too.
    Why would Jews plot to impoverish many of their own people? Most of us are suffering the same financial strains as everyone else, except we have much higher costs for food, we have to pay for schools, while our incomes and property are taxed to pay for their free schools.Housing within the eruv always costs more, etc.
    Freedom of speech should not mean freedom to publicly defame, degrade, or stir up hate. That is not what the law was designed for. It should be used to politely express legitimate concerns.The ACLU is currently campaigning to legitimatize foul language at this moment.

  4. Nice job he is doing pushing his and his communities responsibilities to manage money properly. He should run a monay managemnt course to get more people from his community to learn how to count their money instead of someone elses.

  5. Where all the lawyers???? take him to task SUE HIM FOR EVERYTHING HE TOOK FROM HIS BLACK COMMUNITY (the guy is filthy rich)

  6. Of all the comments, it is interesting that none of you have presented solid evidence to show and prove that Minister Farrakhans claim that black people in America are the real children of Israel is invalid. Instead, you make silly comments out of frustration at your and so-called Jewish scholars inability to refute this claim. If you disagree with Minister Farrakhan, then prove that what he says is false! You cannot because all evidence researched by the NOI is cited from the mouths and writings of notable rabbinical scholars and historians. I’m sure that none of you knew this before making your imature comments about Minister Farrakhan and the NOI. So go and read the book, “The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews Volume Two”, and learn something about your history before opening your mouths and displaying your ignorance!!
