In First Appearance After Heart Attack, Farrakhan Continues Anti-Semitism

Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan’s first pub­lic appear­ance after suf­fer­ing a heart attack fea­tured a num­ber of anti-Semitic claims about Jew­ish con­trol over the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, Black orga­ni­za­tions and other sectors.farrakhan-indiana-heart-attack

Dur­ing his Decem­ber 1 speech at the Indi­ana Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Indi­anapo­lis, Far­rakhan revealed he was hos­pi­tal­ized approx­i­mately two months ago due to a heart attack. When Far­rakhan was unable to deliver his 2013 Holy Day of Atone­ment speech in Alabama in Octo­ber, the NOI orig­i­nally said he was hos­pi­tal­ized for “an infection.”

Nation of Islam: Why No Jews In Spielberg’s Lincoln?

With the release of Steven Spielberg’s new movie, Lin­coln, the Nation of Islam (NOI) has found another oppor­tu­nity to pro­mote its anti-Semitic book, The Secret Rela­tion­ship between Blacks and Jews, which alleges dis­pro­por­tion­ate Jew­ish involve­ment in the slave trade.
