Israel-Firster, Abraham Foxman, national director of Anti-Defamation League (ADL) had several good and bad news last month. The good news was, he learned Pope Benedict XVI in his latest book wrote that Jews did not kill Jesus. The bad news was the Leader of Nation of Islam, Louis Farakhan, in his keynote address to over 16,000 followers at Nation of Islam annual conference in Chicago on February 27, 2011 – allegedly repeated what former CNN talkshow host Rick Sanchez and White House reporter Helen Thomas had said about the Jewish dominance in American politics, finance and media. Abe Foxman was quick to issue his usual FATWA against Louis Farakhan being an ‘anti-Semite’ and a ‘Jew-hater’.
After explaining his interpretation of Islam (not as I know it) and unity within the Afro-American population and its services toward American progress and defense of the nation – Farakhan made some political wrong statements in his speech. For example he warned Obama not to fall to Zionist lies about the Islamic Iran. “The war will only serve the interests of Israel and not the US,” he said.
Zionists dominate the government and the banking system in this country, Min. Farrakhan argued, and just as when the Roman ruler Pontius Pilate did the bidding of the Jews in arresting and crucifying Jesus, U.S. society responds to crush anyone whenever there is a perception that Zionist interests are threatened in the world today.
“What man do you see in America who is standing up to the Jews?” the Nation of Islam leader asked. “Farrakhan!” the crowd roared.
His pointed criticism of the Black-Jewish relationship is not an anti-Semitic pogrom or attack because of any “hatred” Min. Farrakhan harbors against Jewish people, he pointed out.
“I’m not a hater of the Jewish people, but I know the truth,” said Min. Farrakhan. “Do you think I would waste my time if it was not important that you know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you—the people of the earth again!”
While calling Libyan dictator Qaddafi his friend, Farakhan warned Barack Obama: “If you allow the Zionists to push you, to mount a military offence against Qaddafi and you go in and kill him and his sons, as US did with Saddam and his sons – I am warning you this is a Libyan problem, let the Libyans solve their problem themselves”. Incidently, according to some sources, an Israeli security company Global CST has provided Qaddafi close to 50,000 African mercenaries to fight the rebels and protesters.
The paranoid Abe Foxman slammed Farakhan by saying: “Anti-Semitism has suffused the Nation of Islam’s message, and Farakhan is the standard bearer and bigot in chief. Perhaps what is more disturbing is that despite his anti-Semitic rants, he has not been made a pariah in his own community. What does it take him to stop being pied piper of hatred?” May be Abe Foxman believes that Farakhan has not read Abe’s Talmud to know what hatred really means.
