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.”

In his speech, Far­rakhan bluntly stated his the­ory about who con­trols the U.S. gov­ern­ment: “…we’re gonna bring you up to speed. The Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment is under con­trol of the Zion­ists.” Far­rakhan went on to claim that the Jew­ish com­mu­nity has power over the NOI and other Black orga­ni­za­tions. “It’s not that I’m against the Jew­ish peo­ple. That’s just false…They have such power and influ­ence that they made most of you believe that I’m against the Jew­ish people.”

He made sim­i­lar claims about the NAACP, stat­ing “You mem­bers of the NAACP, you want to put on a march to Wash­ing­ton but you don’t have no money, so who do you go to? You go to phil­an­thropists, many of them are Jew­ish.” He con­tin­ued, “They tell you who you can have speak­ing. And they told you don’t have Far­rakhan. And you couldn’t say a damn thing because it wasn’t your money it was theirs.”

Far­rakhan also described send­ing a copy of the NOI’s anti-Semitic book, The Secret Rela­tion­ship between Blacks and Jews, which alleges dis­pro­por­tion­ate Jew­ish involve­ment in the slave trade, to the “pres­i­dents of all the major Jew­ish orga­ni­za­tions” as well as some Jew­ish pub­lic offi­cials. This is not the first time Far­rakhan has done so. The let­ter stated that the pur­pose of send­ing the book was to appeal to Jews who are “sit­ting on top of the world in power with riches and influ­ence while the masses of my people…are in the worst con­di­tion of any mem­ber of the human fam­ily” to con­vince them to repair the “dam­age that has been done by your ances­tors to mine.”

The crowd applauded as Far­rakhan read the last line of the let­ter which claimed that if the Jews do not “make the wise and best choice,” that God “will bring you and your peo­ple to dis­grace and ruin and destroy your power and influ­ence here in Amer­ica and through­out the world.”

Also in the ser­mon, Far­rakhan com­pared the Jews of today to those of Jesus’ time, claim­ing both had dis­pro­por­tion­ate influ­ence over the gov­ern­ment. “Did you know the Jesus had a real prob­lem with the Jew­ish com­mu­nity? They had power, the rab­bis of that day, over the Roman author­i­ties just as they have power today over our gov­ern­ment,” he alleged.noi-rg-9-11-israel-tweet

Farrakhan’s bla­tantly anti-Semitic pub­lic state­ments are just one part of the NOI’s larger anti-Jewish pro­pa­ganda cam­paign. The NOI Research Group (NOIRG), which cre­ated a web­site in 2012 that pro­motes vir­u­lently anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries, tweeted and posted on Face­book a num­ber of times that Israel was behind 9/11, includ­ing most recently (Decem­ber 3) post­ing that “#Israel has an ugly his­tory of deadly false flag oper­a­tions, includ­ing 9/11….”

    Well, how much of what he said can you “dis­prove”???? You always point out things and place labels on him but you have NEVER come up with sub­stan­tive proof to con­tra­dict what he has said.

    • Mario Augusto Puga Valera

      Most of the NOI canards fall under “not even wrong”. Those don’t even qual­ify as ratio­nal, log­i­cal claims: most are non­sen­si­cal ram­blings. For instance, the “evil Jew­ish con­spir­acy”, that would need, in prac­tice, super­nat­ural inter­ven­tion or beyond pos­si­ble capa­bil­ity. The NOI is the one who needs to back its claims up, with sound evi­dence and using the scientific-historical method; oth­er­wise, we don’t have any rea­son to believe them.

      • Vic­tor P. Muhammad

        Sir, you are so IGNORANT, read the book of PROOF “The Secret Rela­tion­ship between Blacks and Jews” It con­tains over 2,000 foot­note that leads the reader to the SOURCES of the infor­ma­tion con­tained. And guess what? those sources are Jew­ish Rabbi, Rab­bini­cal Priests and Schol­ars and Jew­ish Libraries.

        • http://www.LTCartoons.com/ LTCar­toons

          Whoaaaa Wait wait wait. You mean you read it in a book; and its called “The Secret Rela­tion­ship Between Blacks and Jews”???? And you didn’t tell us?? Then it must be true. See I wasn’t think­ing. You read a whole book and now you know how the world turns and who runs what and why. I’d love to see you walk through a PhD the­sis jury. LOL LOL LOL.

          • Vic­tor P. Muhammad

            Your name fits Sir

            • GSWSyn­di­cate

              I sure as hell hope so. TY so kindly for your oh-so-important validation.

          • jerry

            Vic­tor said he read a book that was foot­noted, and as he said much of the infor­ma­tion came from Jew­ish sources. Then you attack him for what?

            • GSWSyn­di­cate

              There are plenty of self-hating Jews (Chom­sky etc) Plenty of self-hating Mus­lims (late Bin Laden etc) and always will be. Doesn’t make them accu­rate. Only self-hating and very misdirected.

              • Vic­tor P. Muhammad

                How about Jew­ish Libraries?? You know Mal­colm was right, when you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one who hollers, is the ONE who got HIT. You peo­ple cant take the TRUTH.

                • GSWSyn­di­cate

                  Don’t know Jew­ish Libraries; never seen one, heard of one, or been in one. I live in the moun­tains of Arkansas; not a whole lot of Jew­ish libraries here. LOL. Sorry. I’m not who you think I am. I farm. I enjoy my fam­ily and we see movies and eat ice cream. Our thoughts of con­trol­ling and tak­ing over the world are prob­a­bly zero to –100000000000. Maybe you’re pro­ject­ing what YOU wish to do? I can’t fig­ure out how you think you know Jew­ish peo­ple. But seri­ously. How many do you know? How many have you social­ized with reg­u­larly? Not many? None? And you know all this info about us? Ohhhhhhhhh.

                • Vic­tor P. Muhammad

                  Im done, back to the cave w/ya

        • jerry

          See Vic­tor you pointed out some infor­ma­tion that was foot­noted and from rep­utable sources. LTCARTOONS had to attack you with you read a book? So now you are smarter than me.

      • Vic­tor P. Muhammad

        You need to OPEN your eyes and study, its all there as PRESENTED with FACTS by The Hon­or­able Min­is­ter Louis Far­rakhan.…. Go to You tube, by The Secret Rela­tion­ships between Blacks and Jews.….…take you pick.….…and He and We are NOT the ONLY ones who KNOW, just the ONLY ones with the Tes­tic­u­lar For­ti­tude to tell it

        • GSWSyn­di­cate

          I finally believe you. It must be VERY secret. I’m a Jew they did a fan­tas­tic job of keep­ing it a secret. Nobody else I know either is aware of our spe­cial pow­ers or con­trol any­thing but our cars (if they have remote con­trol); and tvs. But sorry; none of us own a net­work. The rich­est Jew in my town owns a sal­vage yard. LOL. So much for the con­spir­acy. theory.

      • jerry

        If you read any­thing com­ing from the UN, its about the New world order. Their is a group of peo­ple that want to change this coun­try, and many of these peo­ple are Jew­ish, Chris­t­ian, etc… If you look at who these elite peo­ple are that push com­mu­nism, you cant deny that a large por­tion of them are Jews or say they are. We need all peo­ple to stand and declare their alle­giance to this coun­try and to this Con­sti­tu­tion. To jail all the elite that are against us. We need to put the UN in its place. Look at the destruc­tion of the Euro­pean Nations gov­ern­ments. If not a Jew­ish con­spir­acy, then expose the trai­tors regard­less of religion.

        • GSWSyn­di­cate

          Back in the warm fuzzy days of the UN it had plenty of Jews and Chris­tians; In the past 3 decades it has been the Arab Mus­lim ol’ boys net­work and they run the show. They even elected Mohmar Ghadaffi as the head of human rights LOL. Some Jew­ish con­spir­acy. LOL

      • GSWSyn­di­cate

        Mario,

        Thank you kindly sir. A real brain on this board…who actu­ally DOES get out much and under­stands how the world works; not what his par­ents told him when he was 5.

    • GSWSyn­di­cate

      Done. Next?

  • http://www.LTCartoons.com/ LTCar­toons

    I am Jew­ish and some­one must have for­got­ten to send me the “con­trol memo”. I don’t know any­one in the gov­ern­ment; but call and fight and argue with my state reps all the time. They’re pretty tired of hear­ing from me (and know I’m Jew­ish). If that’s con­trol, then Louis F. must be right. But I don’t seem to be mak­ing much leeway.

    As for Vic­tor P Muham­mad, in Amer­ica, it is not the bur­den of any reli­gion to “dis­prove” they “run a gov­ern­ment”; the bur­den of proof is upon the accu­sor, and he’s lost that game many times, but you gotta hand it to him, hate can sure fuel persistence.

    • Vic­tor P. Muhammad

      Typ­i­cal Response from a mem­ber of the lead­ing struc­ture of telling lies and has NO cred­i­ble answer that con­tains ACTUAL FACTSLOL

      • http://www.LTCartoons.com/ LTCar­toons

        You must not live in Amer­ica Vic­tor. If you did, you would be keenly aware we are a nation of laws. And in that legal spec­trum, you (and Mr. Far­rakhan) are the ones mak­ing the accu­sa­tion hence you have the bur­den of proof to prove guilt. I owe you no apol­ogy, no expla­na­tion, and no guilty con­scious. I truly have noth­ing to do with media, banks, etc. I’m a 59 year old dis­abled male who is lucky to work 2 days a week and squeak by. If that is “rul­ing the planet” then so be it. You’re mind is quite skewed (as is Mr. Far­rakhans). Oh, and you wear yel­low chif­fon dresses to for­mal events. It’s true of course. All men named Vic­tor Muham­mad do so; you know it and I know it. You’ll say “not so” but that’s being a mem­ber of the leader struc­ture of telling lies and has NO cred­i­ble answer that con­tains ACTUAL FACTSLOL. (Start­ing to see how ludi­crous throw­ing base­less accu­sa­tions around and cast­ing asper­sions is sim­ply because your par­ents prob­a­bly told you at age 4 to hate Jews, and you’ve had no psy­chi­atric inter­ven­tion since? You’re a sick man. Sorry but you are. My par­ents wanted me to hate Arabs (and Mus­lims). I rebelled and refused, and don’t. My art team of my cre­ative ven­ture is about 1/2 Mus­lim and we all have had ther­apy and we’ve learned to let go of the vir­u­lent hatred our well meaninged par­ents taught us. Our found­ing fathers ran from Eng­land from folks like you, and that is why yours, and Mr. Far­rakhans con­spir­acy the­o­ries have absolutely no power in this coun­try, nor should they. Get your proof, and come back to me. I’ll lis­ten and cor­rect it if I’m doing wrong. Until then, you look so pretty in your chif­fon dress. :_)

        • jerry

          A man looks around and he notices a small group of peo­ple that hide behind the Jew­ish reli­gion, con­trol the cen­tral banks of the west­ern coun­tries. This same group con­trols the bank of inter­na­tional set­tle­ments, the most pow­er­ful and secret of orga­ni­za­tions. In the US the Fed has 12 fed govenors, all Jew­ish. The Fed chair­man has been Jew­ish and is now under Janet Yel­lon also Jew­ish. The media is con­trolled by Jew­ish peo­ple. Read any his­tory of any, I repeat any movie stu­dio, it was started and ran by Jew­ish peo­ple. Invest­ment banks, again read their his­tory. I have and guess what they were started and ran by Jew­ish peo­ple, still are. The Rothchilds are the rich­est peo­ple in the world, they are tril­lion­aires and Jew­ish. Every major bank, for­tune 500 com­pany was started by a Jew or a freema­son. If a per­son reads that, sees the pic­tures of the peo­ple in the book, if he sees these peo­ple on TV, is it all a lie? If a tiny group of peo­ple basi­cally dom­i­nate, and you ask or ques­tion that you are some kind of con­spir­acy nut? We need to expose this small group of peo­ple regard­less of which reli­gion they hide behind.

          • GSWSyn­di­cate

            I would reply but since you obvi­ously are not edu­cated enough to write proper Eng­lish; it would be like Pope Fran­cis vs Rush; not pretty. But FYI, I’m not here to teach Eng­lish, but the word is “Run”, not “Ran”; and you’ve told me a lot more about your­self by using that kind of expres­sive ver­biage than I believe you wanted me to know.

            Let­see, the largest stu­dio in Hol­ly­wood is 20th Cen­tury Fox, owned by Rupert Mur­doch. (Catholic). He owns the largest conglam­er­ate of media in the world.

            There goes your Jew­ish con­spir­acy. You bet­ter go “ran” for cover.

            • GSWSyn­di­cate

              The Rothchild’s were once a very wealthy Jew­ish fam­ily, but they don’t hold a can­dle today to Bill Gates, The Wal­tons, War­ren Buf­fett etc…not even close; not even oin the same league. Why do you hate Jews?

    • jerry

      That is the point, you are not in con­trol, but a small group of peo­ple that say they are Jews, and Chris­tians are in con­trol. The Chris­t­ian ones are Freema­sons. The other ones hide behind the Jew­ish reli­gion, because you can not ques­tion any­thing about the power of the Jew with­out turn­ing into a anti-semetic thing. See you don’t have that prob­lem point­ing out the mafia crim­i­nals, no one accuses you of hate. No Ital­ian goes nuts on you and calls you a hater.Why is that? What is it about Jew­ish peo­ple that you cant point out a truth with­out being labeled a hater? Please don’t remind me that you suf­fered. This coun­try is being destroyed by the elite, again many of whom are Jews.

      • GSWSyn­di­cate

        I have no prob­lems with Jews, Mus­lims, Chris­tians, Freema­sons, blacks, whites, Asians, etc etc etc etc. I do have issues with those who come on a forum and think they are experts of all of them; when, in real­ity they know absolutely noth­ing (of the real world). You don’t get out much, do you? PS I agree with you about the elite. But I know very few elite Jews. In fact there are mil­lions of more Jews liv­ing in poverty than in the 1%. Need a ref­er­ence? Happy to show sev­eral. Really, Jerry, its fine to have opin­ions but don’t be igno­rant and reveal hate you learned a as a child. It makes the rest of us real­ize you’ve had no inter­ven­tion, no ther­apy, noth­ing; you still par­rot what your par­ents or guardians, how­ever well-meaninged, but surely mis­di­rected taught you. And it makes us feel very sad for you. Really.

    Salaams! My ques­tion is if we, the NOI are claim­ing false accu­sa­tions against the Jews, then why hasn’t any of the Jew­ish lead­ers, or Mr. Fox­man taken the Min­is­ter up on his offer to chal­lenge him in a pub­lic show­down and prove that all of our claims as false­hoods? Wouldn’t that be the way to prove your inno­cence to the peo­ple? NO ONE has taken the Min­is­ter up on this chal­lenge because they know who the Min­is­ter is and who backs him up! Stop throw­ing stones and hid­ing your hands!!! Fact is fact! When he speaks of the Jews, he is not speak­ing of those who live by the Torah and prac­tice the teach­ings of Musa (Moses). He is speak­ing of the cor­rupt Syn­a­gogue of Satan that Jesus spoke of in the Bible. So stop hid­ing and let’s go! Let’s put the facts on the table Foxman!
