According to a press release from the Anti-Defamation League, Farrakhan's powerful speech, in which he correctly identified the Jewish state of Israel and Jewish criminals largely controlling the United States federal government and mainstream mass media as being behind the events of 9/11, once again reaffirmed "his status as the leading anti-Semite in America."
New York, NY, March 5, 2015 … Minister Louis Farrakhan devoted a large portion of his annual address to followers in Chicago to the anti-Semitic myth that Jews were responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.According to an Access ADL Blog post highlighting and denouncing the speech, Farrakhan stated that "thanks to the exemplary work of scholars like Victor Thorn and Christopher Bollyn, it is now becoming apparent that there were many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks."
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which has extensively reported on the anti-Semitic activities of Farrakhan and his group, said that Farrakhan’s latest speech reaffirms his status as the leading anti-Semite in America.
It was the latest in a long litany of hate-filled diatribes from Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic and racist leader of the Nation of Islam, who has for decades used his pulpit and his organization to promote hatred aimed at Jews, blaming them for -- among other things -- the slave trade and the modern-day subjugation of Black people in America.
“Farrakhan is the pied piper of bigotry. No one perhaps since Father Coughlin has been able to so use and abuse his status as a religious leader with a large audience to obsessively harp on about perceived Jewish power and influence,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. “At a time when anti-Semitic attitudes in America are at historic lows, Farrakhan’s unabashed promotion of anti-Semitism is a throwback to the intolerance of another era.”
Mr. Foxman added, “Unlike most fringe anti-Semites, Farrakhan still has a significant following who not only listen raptly, but who cheer him on with every new insult.”
During Part 2 of his annual Saviours’ Day speech on March 1 at NOI’s Mosque Maryam in Chicago, which was also live-streamed to thousands of NOI members on the Internet, Farrakhan alleged Jews committed the 9/11 terrorist attacks in order to start a war between the West and the Muslim world, and in order to enable the Jewish owner of the World Trade Center to collect billions of dollars in insurance money.
Farrakhan cited one of the most common anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theories, suggesting that Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks and that Jews received a text message not to come to work on September 11. He also claimed that Israel and Jews control U.S. foreign policy and act against America’s interests. [...]
The blog post provides more details of Farrakhan's remarks:
Citing “evidence” from anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theorists that Israelis were supposedly “arrested immediately after the attacks but quickly released and sent to Israel,” that the attacks were a plot for the Jewish owner of the World Trade Center to collect billions of dollars in insurance money, that “Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks,” and that “we know that many Jews received a text message not to come to work on September 11,” Farrakhan concluded that 9/11 was a “false flag operation” to start a war between the West and the Muslim world. Blaming Jews for 9/11 is a common NOI tactic for riling up anti-Semitic hatred.Of course, all of Farrakhan's statements regarding 9/11 and Jewish influence and control over American politics and society are absolutely correct and easily verifiable. According to the Access ADL blog post, Farrakhan also told his audience that he hopes to expose the largely hidden history of "Jewish manipulation of money products" and their dominant role in the slave trade in the future.
Farrakhan also invoked anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about supposed Jewish control of the American government. He claimed that U.S. foreign aid to Israel is given “without consulting the American people because they [Israel and Jews] have been working for years to control your representatives in Congress, in the Senate, in the House of Representatives.” He also claimed that Israel constantly acts against America’s interests, but “they don’t fear America because they control it from within.” [...]
I must commend Farrakhan for his bold and truthful remarks about the Jewish stranglehold on America, as well his statements specifically identifying Israel and an international network of Jewish criminals running the U.S. government and mass media as being the primary culprits behind the events of 9/11. Everyone deserves to know the truth about 9/11 and the reality of Jewish power in America, and Louis Farrakhan is certainly doing his part to bring these truths to light.
