Jews Control Black Politicians Says Deric Muhammad

The Nation of Islam’s news­pa­per, The Final Call, pro­motes the anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­ory that Jews con­trol all lev­els of Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, includ­ing the Pres­i­dent himself.

The arti­cle, titled “The Secret Rela­tion­ship Between Black Politi­cians and Jews,” is writ­ten by con­trib­u­tor Deric Muham­mad, who is described as “a Houston-based activist in the Min­istry of Justice.”

Muham­mad claims that Obama “had to pledge alle­giance to Israel’s flag before he could pledge alle­giance to America’s as her pres­i­dent. He was fol­low­ing the course of the vast major­ity of Black politi­cians who fear the Jew­ish lobby more than they fear the Black vote.” He later describes being “sick­ened” by the way black politi­cians “kow­tow at the mere men­tion of AIPAC and the Jew­ish lobby.”

Muham­mad also min­i­mizes Jew­ish involve­ment in the civil rights strug­gle and paints it as part of a larger disin­gen­u­ous Jew­ish plan to gain con­trol over black politi­cians. “Jew­ish peo­ple bankrolled the Civil Rights Orga­ni­za­tions that marched to uproot the Jim Crow laws that Jews put in place so that we could secure to [sic] right to vote for Black politi­cians that would even­tu­ally end up under Jew­ish con­trol. You have got to be kid­ding me.”

The arti­cle also per­pet­u­ates myths about the rela­tion­ship between Jews, money, and undue polit­i­cal influ­ence, claim­ing “…the Jew­ish com­mu­nity can always use the might of their uni­fied dol­lars to bully our elected offi­cials into becom­ing cheer­lead­ers for ‘all things Jewish.’”

On June 13, The Final Call tweeted another arti­cle by Muham­mad pub­lished in Jan­u­ary that pro­motes sim­i­lar stereo­types about Jew­ish con­trol over African-Americans, specif­i­cally musi­cians. In the arti­cle, Muham­mad asserts there have been “decades of dra­con­ian record con­tracts, usury and the gen­eral slave/slavemaster rela­tion­ship between Black enter­tain­ers and enter­tain­ment exec­u­tives who hap­pen to be Jewish.”

Anti-Israel Billboard Campaign Hits Los Angeles

A Bill­board Dis­played in Los Angeles

Update: As of June 24th, CBS Out­door adver­tis­ing took down the 23 anti-Israel bill­boards because the Coali­tion to Stop 30 Bil­lion to Israel used the ‘CBS Out­door’ name in their pub­li­ca­tions with­out per­mis­sion. Nonethe­less, the group said, “we hope to con­tinue our L.A. cam­paign, but regard­less we will be look­ing at other cities to con­tinue this impor­tant work in the future.”

In a con­tin­ued effort to mar­gin­al­ize Israel through adver­tise­ments, a new bill­board cam­paign was launched in Los Ange­les this week by the anti-Israel orga­ni­za­tion “Coali­tion to Stop $30 Bil­lion to Israel.”

Accord­ing to a press release issued by the US Cam­paign to End the Israeli Occu­pa­tion, there will be 23 bill­boards dis­played in the Los Ange­les area that read, “Tell Con­gress: Spend Our Money at Home, Not on the Israeli Military.”

The US Campaign’s press release asserts that the “Israel lobby” might try to put an end to the cam­paign, but that sup­port­ers of the bill­boards’ mes­sage “can­not allow them to sti­fle dialogue.”

U.S. aid to Israel is crit­i­cal for Israel, but it is crit­i­cal for the U.S. as well. Israel is required to spend most of the aid on American-made prod­ucts and mil­i­tary equip­ment, which ben­e­fits the Amer­i­can econ­omy. In addi­tion, the U.S. gov­ern­ment rightly con­sid­ers pro­vid­ing a key ally in the region with aid to be in its own best interests.

The Coali­tion to Stop $30 Bil­lion to Israel was first cre­ated in 2009 in New Mex­ico. The group has been respon­si­ble for anti-Israel bill­boards and ads in Albu­querque, Seat­tle and, most recently, Den­ver.

Iranian TV Exposes The “Hollywood Jew”

Screen­shot from IRINN’s “Apoc­a­lypse Now”

The Islamic Repub­lic of Iran News Net­work (IRINN), Iran’s state-run news chan­nel, aired a pro­gram on June 13 repeat­ing clas­sic con­spir­a­cies about Jew­ish con­trol of the film industry.

Accord­ing to the Anti-Defamation League’s trans­la­tion, the pro­gram – which aired between news seg­ments – claimed that Hol­ly­wood uses “the the­o­ries of Sec­u­lar­ism and the ideals of the Cru­saders and Zion­ists to deceive the whole world, and the biggest deceit is to facil­i­tate the ‘Zion­i­fi­ca­tion’ of the world.”

The nar­ra­tor of the pro­gram, titled “Apoc­a­lypse Now,” claimed that a Jewish-Zionist con­spir­acy has taken root in Hol­ly­wood, namely, a con­spir­acy by Jew­ish film­mak­ers to “cre­ate a Zion­ist soci­ety out of the audience.”

This sin­is­ter plan, accord­ing to the pro­gram, was made pos­si­ble by Euro­pean Jew­ish immi­grants who were the pio­neers and archi­tects of Hol­ly­wood. Films pro­duced by Jew­ish stu­dio heads cun­ningly insert the cul­tural ideals of Zion­ism into their pro­duc­tions, which they then “fed to the Amer­i­can masses.”

To advance its con­spir­a­to­r­ial anti-Semitic nar­ra­tive of Jew­ish con­trol over the film indus­try, the pro­gram focused on the Jew­ish ances­try and ori­gins of a series of stu­dio founders, described as “Hol­ly­wood moguls.”

The pro­gram ended with an accu­sa­tion that these “Hol­ly­wood Jews,” includ­ing the fam­i­lies of stu­dio founders and well-known Jew­ish movie stars, have pur­posely changed their names from Jew­ish to “Chris­t­ian” ones in order to con­ceal their unsa­vory links and the pro­mo­tion of Zion­ist val­ues and ideas in their films.

Iran’s state-run media has long acted as the cler­i­cal regime’s mouth­piece to dis­sem­i­nate anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Western sentiments.
