Farrakhan Leftover: Nation of Islam Loon’s Anti-Semitic “Reading List”

While all of the press reports from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s “Final Call,” Sunday, emphatically stated that Farrakhan stayed away from anti-Semitic statements (that have been typical of his rhetoric), they were wrong.
Call it a whitewash of this Black separatist racist.
In fact, a tiny blurb at the end of today’s Detroit Free Press local politics column, notes that the ADL found otherwise:

A Jewish civil rights group slammed Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Monday for encouraging the reading of books it says promote anti-Semitism.

Extremist Love Gaze: Louis Farrakhan and

During his speech Sunday at Ford Field, Farrakhan urged the crowd to read certain books, including “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” and “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve.”
The former says the history of slavery in the New World was dominated by Jewish ship owners and merchants. The Anti-Defamation League says the book is based on fraudulent scholarship.
The ADL said the other book was written by an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist.

This has been par for the Farrakhan course. He’s always blamed Jews for Black slavery in America. But in fact, it was Muslims–NOT Jews–who sold and traded Black slaves to North America. And, as far as Jewish slave owners go, there were very few Jewish slave owners. While slave-owning is abhorrent, those who did own slaves treated them no worse than other slave owners.
When I was an undergrad at The University of Michigan, I looked into these claims by Farrakhan, and found that the University of Michigan Graduate Library has one of the most extensive collections of documentation refuting Farrakhan’s claims about Jews and the slave trade, and that they are largely fictional.
No surprise there, especially given that the utterer of these anti-Semitic myths claims he was once taken into outer space by a spaceship and given his ideas by aliens.

Farra-the-Con was even denying the enslavement of Black African Christians by Muslims in the Sudan until the Baltimore Sun actually went and purchased slaves, to prove him wrong beyond all reasonable doubt. See: http://www.sudanupdate.org/REPORTS/Slavery/slavery%20report/slv-36-response3.htm
And regarding the TRUE history of slavery in Africa, he’ll never tell his FOLLOWERS that Muslims started it and those great African Kings and Queens were selling Blacks away for profit. It’s like his FOLLOWERS willingly fail to connect that Kings in Africa had and sold slaves, but they have no problem mentioning anyone in American or European history who had stature and also owned slaves. And we see how much they DON’T cry for the freedom of Black Africans who are enslaved by Muslims RIGHT NOW. But they all claim to be part of Africa and want someone to PAY THEM for American slavery THEY NEVER were part of.
And we won’t even talk about the Black Americans that owned slaves.
Here’s a history of Muslim slavery across Africa that Farra-the-Con does not want you to read. See: http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/News/Trifkovic/NewsST112403.html

I attended a NOI gathering where Farrakhan made one of his boring speeches. His speech was littered with anti-Jewish remarks. I sat in horror as he said to his zombified audience: “If one of my enemies (Jews) should happen to assassinate me, I know what you would do.” The Fruit of Islam security guy sitting behind me said in a voice seething with hate, “We’ll burn down their synagogues! Burn em’ all down! Goddamn right!” I looked up at the stage and realized I was looking at a black Hitler. If he had the power, he would finish the job Hitler started. He may never have that ability but his Muslim brothers intend to fulfill Hitler’s dream of a world without Jews. We must stop them.

I guess The Detroit Free Press couldn’t list the above Farrakhan endorsed books without “THE JEWISH”defense league (and official pie target for The Three Stooges)the adl’s permission,as it also echoed tht adl’s critique of Dennis Prager-co-author(with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin)of ‘Why The Jews’,arguably the best book on antisemitism as a bigot for condemning Keith Ellison’s Islamic marketing shtik congressional swearing in ceremony.Anita Baker-last I noticed-was living in the Detroi’ suburb of Grosse Pointe,for ages a ghetto for rich white folk only,which qualifies her as a limousine liberal has-been who supports the plantation-like system
perpetuated by Farrakhan,who lives plantation style in Chicago’s Hyde Park and Hawaii on his biggest idiot fans who stand on various conah’s in Detroi’ sellin’ fruit,oblivious to their own exploitation.
