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!”
