Farrakhan Speaks To NOI About Jewish Control And The Holocaust

On Octo­ber 21, Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Far­rakhan deliv­ered the “Part 2” of his Holy Day of Atone­ment address in Chicago. While “Part 1” of his address in Char­lotte last week pri­mar­ily focused on harshly crit­i­ciz­ing Pres­i­dent Barack Obama and Gov­er­nor Mitt Rom­ney, the audi­ence at the NOI’s Mosque Maryam was exposed to Farrakhan’s views on Jew­ish con­trol in the U.S. and a litany of con­spir­acy the­o­ries. Below are some excerpts from Farrakhan’s speech in Chicago:

Jew­ish Con­trol of America

“Now you know I’m going to be lam­basted and called anti-Semitic… They’ll say Far­rakhan was up to his old canards; he said Jews con­trol Hol­ly­wood. Well, they said it them­selves! Jews con­trol the media. They said it them­selves! Jews and some gen­tiles con­trol the bank­ing indus­try, inter­na­tional banks. They do! In Wash­ing­ton right next to the Holo­caust Museum is the Fed­eral Reserve where they print the money. Is that an accident?”

“The bankers never lose. I’m sorry, Mr. Roth­schild, you and your bankers will lose today. You are not going to suck the life blood of the world’s peo­ple too much longer.”

The Holo­caust

“I don’t know how many Jews were killed. I know some­thing hap­pened in Nazi Ger­many, and if it’s one mil­lion, two mil­lion, three mil­lion; it’s one mil­lion, two mil­lion, three mil­lion too many. But to deny a per­son the right to chal­lenge your artic­u­la­tion of num­bers and to put you in jail if you deny aspects of the Holo­caust… You can’t speak about Jews. You can’t crit­i­cize Jews. If you do, you’re an anti-Semite.”

Israel

“…what kind of friend has Israel been to Amer­ica? … Do friends spy on each other? Israelis spy on Amer­ica! Do friends tap each other’s tele­phones? Do they? Mossad tapped the White House phone sys­tem! That’s how they tapped into knowl­edge of what was going on in the Oval Office that wasn’t quite kosher…Tons of ura­nium was stolen from Amer­ica; it ended up in Israel. Israel destroyed an Amer­i­can ship, the [U.S.S.] Lib­erty. Is this what friends do to friends? Amer­i­cans lost their lives!”
