Minister Louis Farrakhan suffering (hopefully painfully) from prostate cancer said his goodbye to his flock yesterday. According to NPR:
Farrakhan was speaking Sunday night to tens of thousands of Nation of Islam members in Detroit, where the movement began. “God is angry because of the ideas of neoconservatives,” Farrakhan said. “Many so-called Jews and Christians have accepted the philosophy of an imperialist America, even without any aggression or provocation.”
Farrakhan recently underwent surgery for complications from prostate cancer. And even though many within the Nation were hesitant to call this a good-bye speech, Farrakhan himself, his voice quivering, said it was just that”My time is up. The final call can’t last forever.”[Sammy Note: Baruch Hashem]
Minister Jeffrey Muhammad has been a member of the Nation for 17 years and works in the group’s Chicago offices. For him, and many people at the speech, Farrakhan represents much more than a spiritual leader. “Minister Farrakhan is a living example for me of how to be a father, of how to be a brother, of how to be a man, of how to be a man striving to life his life right,” Muhammad said.
Lets not forget he is a living example of how to hate Jews. Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, has long expressed anti-Semitic and anti-white rhetoric, that mark him as a notable figure on the extremist scene. A number of recent speeches testify to the unchanging nature of his views.
- Saviours Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/06 These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength.It’s the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting Lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!
Is Jerusalem surrounded by armies now? [Crowd: yes, sir!] These neocons and Zionists have manipulated Bush and the American government and our boys and girls are dying in Iraq and in Afghanistan for the cause of Israel, not for the cause of America! Israel is the tail wagging the dog, which is America. You may not like me, and I really don’t give a damn. I’m throwing the gauntlet down today.
- Millions More Movement rally, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 8/31/05 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].
- Saviours Day: Chicago, 02/27/05Listen, Jewish people don’t have no hands that are free of the blood of us. They owned slave ships, they bought and sold us. They raped and robbed us. If you can’t face that, why you gonna condemn me for showing you your past, how then can you atone and repent if somebody don’t open the book with courage, you don’t have that, but I’ll be damned, I got it.[I believe what he got is called terminal bull crap, I dont know about you folks but at the time he said my ancestors were owning slave ships they were in Russia getting beaten by the Tzars armies]
New York, NY, February 26, 2007 … Minister Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic and racist leader of the Nation of Islam, concluded his Saviour’s’ Day address by recommending to his audience several notoriously anti-Semitic books, including “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.” “Farrakhan may have held his anti-Semitic views in check while on the dais, but if this is what he wants people to read, then the leopard hasn’t changed his spots,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. “Minister Farrakhan’s reading list includes books that purport to expose ‘the truth’ about Jews and their control of the federal banking system or their role in the African slave trade. “It’s a shame that Farrakhan had an opportunity to change his legacy, and he didn’t,” added Mr. Foxman. Toward the conclusion of his Saviours’ Day address at Ford Field in Detroit, which was described as his last major speech, Minister Farrakhan told his audience, “I want you to become readers” and “Put these names down.” Among the authors and books he recommended:
• The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, which argues that the history of slavery in the New World was dominated by Jewish ship owners and merchants. The book presents a multi-layered attack against the Jewish people, assaulting the integrity of the Jewish religion, the meaning of Jewish history, and the foundations of Jewish scholarship upon which the book’s own fraudulent charges are based. • The Secrets of the Federal Reserve by Eustice Mullins, an anti-Jewish conspiracy theory propagandist, one of the key conspiracy books claiming that the banking system in the U.S. is controlled by a few elite families (most of them Jewish). It is a key text used by anti-Semites on the far right. • By Way of Deception by Victor Ostrovsky, a discredited book that makes unsubstantiated claims about Israel’s Mossad. • Palestine Peace Not Apartheid by President Jimmy Carter, a biased, simplistic and distorted view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that portrays Israeli policies in dealing with Palestinians in the territories as inherently racist.
Copies of The Synagogue of Satan, written by nation of Islam member Ashahed Muhammad, which claims that the world is being manipulated and corrupted by Satanic powers led by Jewish elites, were available for purchase at the event.
