Farrakhan pushes conspiracy tracts, Carter book
JTA ^ | 2-26-07

Posted on 02/26/2007 5:34:32 PM PST by SJackson

The leader of the Nation of Islam recommended anti-Semitic conspiracy tracts and former President Carter’s book to his followers. The Anti-Defamation League noted that Louis Farrakhan concluded his Saviours’ Day address in Detroit by recommending several books for his listeners.

Among them were “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” which claims that the slave trade was dominated by Jews; “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve,” which claims that the world’s banks are controlled by the Jews; and Carter’s “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,” which alleges that Israel has set up a de facto apartheid system for Palestinians in the West Bank.

Copies of “The Synagogue of Satan,” a book written by a Nation of Islam member which says that the world is being manipulated and corrupted by Satanic powers led by Jewish elites, were available for purchase at the event.

“Farrakhan may have held his anti-Semitic views in check while on the dais, but if this is what he wants people to read, then the leopard hasn’t changed his spots,” ADL National Director Abe Foxman said in a statement Monday.

ADL: Farrakhan 'Reading List' Includes Anti-Semitic and Anti-Israel Tracts

http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories.pl?ACCT=104&STORY=/www/story/02-26-2007/0004534590&EDATE=

NEW YORK, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Minister Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic and racist leader of the Nation of Islam, concluded his Saviours' Day address by recommending to his audience several notoriously anti-Semitic books, including "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews."

"Farrakhan may have held his anti-Semitic views in check while on the dais, but if this is what he wants people to read, then the leopard hasn't changed his spots," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.

"Minister Farrakhan's reading list includes books that purport to expose 'the truth' about Jews and their control of the federal banking system or their role in the African slave trade.

"It's a shame that Farrakhan had an opportunity to change his legacy, and he didn't," added Mr. Foxman.

Toward the conclusion of his Saviours' Day address at Ford Field in Detroit, which was described as his last major speech, Minister Farrakhan told his audience, "I want you to become readers" and "Put these names down." Among the authors and books he recommended:

-- "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews," which argues that the history of slavery in the New World was dominated by Jewish ship owners and merchants. The book presents a multi-layered attack against the Jewish people, assaulting the integrity of the Jewish religion, the meaning of Jewish history, and the foundations of Jewish scholarship upon which the book's own fraudulent charges are based.

-- "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" by Eustice Mullins, an anti-Jewish conspiracy theory propagandist, one of the key conspiracy books claiming that the banking system in the U.S. is controlled by a few elite families (most of them Jewish). It is a key text used by anti-Semites on the far right.

-- "By Way of Deception" by Victor Ostrovsky, a discredited book that makes unsubstantiated claims about Israel's Mossad.

-- "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid" by President Jimmy Carter, a biased, simplistic and distorted view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that portrays Israeli policies in dealing with Palestinians in the territories as inherently racist.

Copies of "The Synagogue of Satan," written by nation of Islam member Ashahed Muhammad, which claims that the world is being manipulated and corrupted by Satanic powers led by Jewish elites, were available for purchase at the event.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.

I'm reading The Case for Israel by Alan Dershowitz and he reports that as he has traveled the country giving lectures at colleges, inevitably dozens of kids come up to him and say "I didn't know".

They are being indoctrinated but Alan has done God's work in introducing those kids to the facts, imo.

Well I would say it's poetic justice that Carter's book has found it's place among the anti semitic crowd. Not quite as good as Mein Kampf but certainly on the recommended reading list for the Jew haters.

Yes, a shame Carter refuses to debate him, or Dennis Ross, or anyone. It makes a lie of Carter's claim that his intent was to stimulate debate, a debate he runs from.

If Jimmah had a conscience he'd be embarrassed by the fact that Calypso Louie is one of his biggest supporters.

The FBI files on Wallace D. Fard, the founder of the Black Muslims, are fascinating. He wasn't even black, for starters...

Anyone know any more about this book/author? Seems like I've run across him before but can't remember any details. For what it's worth, the book seems to have good reviews on Amazon.

Does this mean that someone will now purchase Carter's book? I'll bet that's an ego boost for him.

Poetic justice. On the paperback edition of Carter's screed he can feature a blurb from Farrakhan.

Is it not true that most of the banks in the Federal Reserve are run/owned by people of Jewish decent? And the last two Fed heads were Jewish. I mean, that doesn't mean that "the Jews control the World" because if they did every middle eastern nation except Israel would be in flames or under martial law. But denying that the majority of powerful people in the international banking scene are Jewish is futile. I just don't think it means anything.

If the Jews controlled the world, Israel and New York City would be the two safest places on earth. And as we all can see, that is the farthest from reality you can get. Don't buy in to the old anti-semitic lie.

Last guy Carter debated was Reagan, and we know how that turned out.

I never thought I'd hear Alan Dershowitz accused of doing God's work, but if that's the case, more power to him.

He was over here but nobody noticed...

http://www.aijac.org.au/review/1998/232/tzad232.html

It was probably when I saw Sunday night's ABC Television News credit him as "Louise Farrakhan" that I finally realised the visiting Nation of Islam leader was unlikely ever to become a household name in Australia.

Not that I'm pointing any fingers of blame here. Minister Farrakhan's visit down under was so fast and furious that its hardly surprising the ABC hadn't yet got the hang of spelling the embittered old fascist's name...

Not only did he refuse to debate Alan, he would not even allow him in the auditorium when he spoke with the people.

Will Jimmy be flattered by his new constituency/advocacy? Will he be puzzled by this endorsement - or embarassed? Perhaps he will prefer to think, that like so many others; Farrakhan misunderstoond what he wrote.

Whatever the case, the only really surprising comment in this is the following, so noted by ADL National Director Abe Foxman where he offers that "Farrakhan may have held his anti-Semitic views in check while on the dais, but if this is what he wants people to read, then the leopard hasn’t changed his spots". . .

Fararakhan might have on occasion 'couched' his views; parsed. . .but don't think he ever held his anti-semitism in check; nor could there have been any doubt, reasonably speaking; that a leopard ever changes his spots.

How many of you noticed the uniformed thugs, dressed military style, were on Farrakhan's stage?

Did you pick up parts of his speech near the end about "self defense?"

A uniformed political-relgious party with a track record of domestic terrorism is rather new in America. We will see more of it. Farrakhan's speech gave us a timeline of ten years before black muslim "self defense" erupts.

Or is it just me?

It doesn't look that way if you do some research. Your last sentence is correct though, it holds no significance. One of the reasons I don't come to FR much anymore is the increase in blood libel and jew-bashing in the past couple of years. Threads on American Jewish voting patterns bring them out like maggots to carrion. Posts like yours are just depressing.

Anyone can write a review on Amazon, you don't need any background or credentials to do so. Check out Amazon's section on Ann Coulter's books or books on 9/11--you would not want to use these "reviews" as evidence of the author's credibility.

True but usually a "controversial" author will spark very polarized reviews.

True enough. Check out the reviews for Michelle Malkin's book "unhinged"--they certainly make her point about the left!
