Farrakhan Denies Muslim Slave Trade, Blames Jews
Here's an article by Charles Jacobs, President American Anti-Slavery Group, taking Louis Farrakhan's to task over anti-Semetic remarks about slavery:
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan addressed an estimated 600 students at UC Berkeley last Saturday, and told Black students not to befriend any Jew without first reading “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” a book whose thesis is that “the Jews” were behind the black slave trade. Scholars both black and white have exposed the NOI book as a pack of lies, a modern day calumny which, much like their medieval analogues -- “the Jews poisoned the wells,” “the Jews make matzo with the blood of Christian children” --is meant to incite hatred for Jewish people. Dangerous hatred. The Daily Californian reports that Jewish students were hurt and shocked. No doubt. But what will be more shocking perhaps is Minister Farrakhan’s own semi-secret relationship with the modern day slaving of African Blacks by people, and in countries, that the NOI leader has an interest to protect.READ THE REST.
