Louis Farrakhan, America's Big Anti-Semite, At It Again Through Nation of Islam

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                

Islamic leader, Louis Farrakhan spoke at a Detroit Baptist Church and attacked Jews, calling them "Satanic Jews."  He spoke of the "Synagogue of Satan."  In his speech he claimed that Jewish people control the news media!  I have to laugh at this one.  He should know that the news media is the worst in the USA in promoting Israel.  They rarely say anything good about Israel and love to print anything demeaning if they can find it, and that goes for any Jewish scandal as well.   This is the ago old "say something with verbosity and people will believe you," but saying Jews control the media beats all.  This is ancient anti-Semitic propaganda.  Why, the only TV news station that says anything fairly good about Israel has been Fox, and they're always in trouble for doing so, and I have detected a softening even with Bill O'Reilly. CNN makes me shudder, especially from one of their prized commentators when covering the subject of Israel.

 Covering this speech of Farrakhan's, who is the well known leader of the mainly African-American religious movement, the Nation of Islam (NOI), was the Detroit Free Press.  He has been the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem.  Appointed by the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Muhammad before his death in 1975, he became the National Representative of the Nation of Islam.  So he's definitely a leader of anti-Semitic ideas with his people being so much anti-Semitism is coming out of mosques these days. I cite Qaradawi of Qatar as one big example who has a fatwah out to kill all Jews. he speaks out on al-Jazeera.    Farrakhan  is responsible for reopening over 130 NOI mosques in America and the world.  Perhaps it is he who has coerced the media into their anti-Semitic stand.

Farrakhan wasn't even letting Obama off the hook by saying that  he surrounded himself with Satan...members of the Jewish community.  This in itself is rather amusing, being he has had a few Jews on his staff, but they have been in complete harmony with him, being staunch Democrats.  It is their political viewpoint, not their religious one that connects them to Obama.  These Jews barely know a thing about Israel, which is my personal opinion based on what problems Israel has had to face with this administration.  I don't know what they could have coerced Obama into agreement with being they are just like him.  Being that Jews make up only 2% of our American population goes to saying that Farrakhan just can't understand why they can rise to such importance as being advisers to the president.  He shouldn't complain, though, not in this 2008-2116 period.  Blacks are only about 11% of the population of the USA.

Representative John Conyers was in the audience and was quite embarrassed.   He said, "Farrakhan made unacceptable racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic statements, which I condemn in the strongest possible terms."  He said he thought the speech would be about the challenges facing the city of Detroit.  Come on, Conyers.  You know who Farrakhan is and what he has stood for in the past.  His biggest thing is attacking Jews.  Here was his chance at age 79 to tell a congregation at a Black Baptist church how he feels about Jews.  I don't know of any leopard  that can change his spots.  He has changed his name a lot, though  Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr, was born as Louis Eugene Wolcott  and was also formerly known as Louis X, which is rather like the famous Malcolm X.

Malcolm X was born as Malcolm Little in Omaha, Nebraska whose father was a Baptist minister and supporter of the Black Nation's leader, Marcus Garvey.  Malcolm studied the teachers of the NOI leader,  Elijah Muhammad.  "By 1942 Malcolm was coordinating various narcotics, prostitution and gambling rings in Harlem, New York."  What he learned from Elijah was that "among other goals, the NOI fought for a state of their own, separate from one inhabited by white people."  So he learned that white man purposely kept the black man down, to hate whites and especially to hate Jews.

Louis Farrakhan and  Malcolm X's mentor, Elijah Muhammad was born as Elijah Robert Pool in Georgia in 1897 and died in 1975.  His father was also a Baptist lay preacher and sharecropper and was only able to get a 4th grade education.   "In August 1931, at the urging of his wife, Elijah Poole attended a speech on Islam and black empowerment by  Wallace  D. Fard.  There you have the beginning of a movement lacking peace and promoting hatred.  

Rep. John Conyers is a man, also black,  of 84 in his 25th term in Congress.  He is someone who has an anti-Israel voice in Congress.  Now who do you suppose is his informant about Jews?  He has been against Iran sanctions and against the US funding the Iron Dome and anti-missile system.  His other side is that he's a typical left wing Democrat who wants things on his agenda fixed.  Luckily, others besides me attacked him for attending Farrakhan's night at the church.  Matt Drudge, an internet journalist who has the "Drudge Report" attacked him, and the ADA told Conyers and others to condemn these nasty remarks.  Conyers apologized to those who may have been offended by the "minister's" words.  Isn't he more like an Iman than a minister?  Well, I, for one,  am not only offended, but I am incensed at his words.  They're malicious and evil words that have nothing to do with truth.  .

Detroit is a big important city that has seen better days.  It has been going downhill fast in this economy.  They haven't tackled their deficit.  What has Farrakhan done to help his people get jobs and improve their lot?   His only religious lessons are to blame and hate Jews.  He reminds me of another leader in the 1930's and 40's who did this.  Better and more useful words have been spoken by Bill Cosby, who encourages education as the formula for successes and happiness.  I note that these anti-Semites have been very short on this end.

 I can throw in that my father, Jewish, also had to quit high school and not finish because he had to help support his widowed mother and younger sisters.  It happened, but he didn't blame anyone.  He worked hard, challenged himself and developed skills as a butcher, then a cattle buyer, and finally owned his own meat packing business.  That's the American success story.  He did it even though there were a lot of anti-Semitic people around, too.  You have to believe in yourself and like yourself and know that you can succeed.  You don't join a hate group and blame others for your lacking.  You build your own support group of a loving family.  You give life your best shot, again and again if need be.  That's how you become proud of yourself.
