Louis Farrakhan accuses 'wicked Jews' of many things at Nation of Islam's Saviours' Day conference

 


(JTA)—Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan blamed “the wicked Jews” for the crisis over anti-Semitism and the Women’s March.

“The most beautiful sight that I could lay eyes on [was] when I saw, the day after Trump was elected, women from all over the world were standing in solidarity, and a black woman is the initiator of it,” said Farrakhan, referring to Tamika Mallory, a leader of the Women’s March who has lionized Farrakhan and refused to condemn his pervasive anti-Semitism.

“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” Farrakhan continued on Sunday during his address at the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day conference in Chicago. “It ain’t about Farrakhan, it’s about women all over the world (who) have the power to change the world.”

He also praised Mallory’s co-organizers Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian American who has been highly critical of Israel, and Carmen Perez, who reportedly made anti-Semitic comments at Women’s March planning meetings.

Celebrities, activists and community leaders, Jewish and non-Jewish, have distanced themselves from the march and called on the national organizers to step down over claims that they have not done enough to disavow anti-Semitism.

During his four-hour keynote address, Farrakhan returned to anti-Semitic tropes and bashed Israel, saying Jews don’t let blacks use the term “holocaust” to describe the slave trade and he criticized Jews for believing that “the suffering of six million Jews is worth 7 billion human beings.” He explained that Moses taught the Jews “tricknology,” that the Jewish scholars came up with the Talmud, and that “Talmudic Jews” are culprits who see themselves as gods.

As reported by the Jewish News Service, he claimed that sharecropping and the enslavement of blacks are justified by the Talmud, and that the Jews have exploited the American people through predatory lending practices because the Talmud permits Jews to cheat non-Jews. In addition, Farrakhan said that the Federal Reserve is a “family of rich Jewish people,” and that things such as pedophilia, sexual perversion, rape culture, casting couches, gay marriage, abortion, sex trafficking, prostitution, anal sex and certain sexual practices that he said are common in Hollywood can all be traced to the Satanic influence of the Talmudic Jews.

He added: “The Talmud [and its] influence on the Supreme Court in the laws of this land must ultimately be challenged.”

There were several thousand people in attendance at the speech, which also was livestreamed.

Farrakhan was preceded by a known Holocaust denier Michael A. Hoffman II, who suggested that ancient Jewish texts are equivalent to teachings “from the church of Satan,” according to the ADL.

The Saviours’ Day is a Nation of Islam event that commemorates the birth of Wallace Fard Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam.
