Louis Farrakhan Net Worth | Celebrity Net Worth

Louis Farrakhan Net Worth: Louis Farrakhan is an American religious leader who has a net worth of $3 million. Louis Farrakhan reached his net worth through his leadership and brief musical career. Born Louis Eugene Walcott on May 11, 1933, Bronx, New York, he made a name for himself as the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI) movement. Louis Farrakhan joined the organization in 1955, and he was instrumental in preserving the original teachings of the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Muhammad. He was the man to stand behind the rebuilding of NOI, once it was disbanded by Elijah Muhammad’s son, Warith Deen Muhammad, who started the orthodox Islamic group American Society of Muslims. Farrakhan restored the name Nation of Islam for the organization in 1981 and went on to regain most of the Nation of Islam’s National properties like the NOI National Headquarters Mosque Maryam, as well as over 130 NOI mosques throughout America and the world. In the process, his controversial political views and outspoken rhetorical style have been either praised or widely criticized. Black religious and social leader as he was, Farrakhan earned the tag “antisemite” by Southern Poverty Law Center. In October 1995, he led the Million Man March in Washington, D.C., where he called on black people to renew their vows to their families and communities. Today, Louis Farrakhan continues to be active in the NOI, but he has dramatically reduced his responsibilities due to health issues.

Farrakhan on Jews – Anti-Defamation League

Farrakhan In His Own Words On Jews

Now you know Im going to be lambasted and called anti-Semitic Theyll say Farrakhan was up to his old canards; he said Jews control Hollywood. Well, they said it themselves! Jews control the media. They said it themselves! Jews and some gentiles control the banking industry, international banks. They do! In Washington right next to the Holocaust Museum is the Federal Reserve where they print the money. Is that an accident?

Holy Day of Atonement Keynote Address, Part 2, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois 10/21/12

Farrakhan: How many of you are lawyers? Only have one in the house? No wonder we go to jail so much, brother! But at the top of the law profession, who are the top in law? Audience: Jews. Farrakhan: Sorry I didn’t hear you. Audience: Jews! Farrakhan: Any doctors in the house? Ain’t got no doctors? Oh there’s one way in the back. At the top of the medical profession, the top in that are members of the Jewish community. Anybody in media? Who’s the top in that field? Audience: Jews. Farrakhan: Anybody a rapper in the house? There’s rappers. You can rap, ain’t nothing wrong with that, but at the top of that are those that control the industry. Any of you have Hollywood ambitions, Broadway ambitions? Who’s the top of that? Audience: Jews. Farrakhan: Same people! They’re masters in business. Well I’m not a businessman I’m a banker. Well who’s the master of the bankers? Audience: Jews. Farrakhan: TALK TO ME! Audience: Jews! Farrakhan: You don’t discredit them because they’re masters, you discredit them by the way they use their mastery. Audience: [applause] Farrakhan: Now, I close.

“All is Vanity” sermon at Mosque Maryam, Chicago 7/1/12

White Christians, [you saw the plight of blacks] but what did you do? You walked right by on the other side. Then along came the Jewish people. You did a little better. You came and looked at us: ‘damn they’re in bad shape! Let’s see how we can take advantage of the shape that they’re in.’

“Guidance in a Time of Trouble” speech in San Diego, 5/27/12

Do you know Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over?

Saviours’ Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

In 100 years, they control movies, television, recording, publishing, commerce, radio, they own it all. Magazines. Why do you want all, everything?

Saviours’ Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

Did you know that the Koran says that Jews are the most violent of people. I didn’t write it, but I’m living to see it.

Saviours’ Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

I think we have made a grave mistake; we have been deceived into thinking that the Jews have been our allies in our recent civil rights struggle… Yes, he poses as your friend. Hes with you as an agent, hes with you as a manager, hes with you as an investor, hes with you as a guide in economic development, but he has never asked you to do what he has done. He networks with other rich, influential Jews and he buys, he invests, hes in trade and commerce.

Interview with Washington, DC, radio station WPFW-FM, 4/1/10

Some of you think that Im just somebody whos got something out for the Jewish people. Youre stupid. Do you think I would waste my time if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and the people of the world again.

Saviours’ Day, Rosemont, Illinois, 2/27/11

If the white race is under the name Israel, where did the name Jew come from? Adam never said he was a Jew. Abraham didn’t say he was a Jew. Moses didn’t say he was a Jew. The name Jew comes after Judah. Hebrew is different. The original Hebrews look just like you. The original Hebrews are Black.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

How did we get a Black president? Because those Satanic Jews know the time that this is the time of your separation from them that God wants to give you a land of your own as the cornerstone of the Kingdom of God You didn’t see when they got in the room and said we have to deceive them and through them deceive the entire world’ How could they be the chosen of God and leading the world into filth and indecency?

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

You can’t do nothing in Hollywood unless you go by them. You a hip-hop artist? You can’t do nothing, you gotta go by them. You want to be a great sports figure? They own that plantation Children of Israel, they got you jumping through hoops.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

They stole land in Palestine And this Synagogue of Satan knows that the end of their time of rule is up. The jig is up.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

If they go to war with Iran, which they’re setting the stage for now, it’ll be because the Zionists have pushed Obama to do their bidding and to put a black face on an illegitimate war and use black and brown and poor white to fight a war for the Ashkenazi false Jews that have come out of Europe. These same people started apartheid in Africa. The same Jews are guilty of Jim Crow and the laws that segregated us and they’re the same forces that are in Palestine right now telling Palestinians in their own land what roads they can travel on and what they’re not free to travel on.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10

White people, although they hated us, are not the architects of white supremacy. That started in Europe and it is here in America and we document the architecture of white supremacy in this volume, Volume 2 The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews.

Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10

This thing called anti-Semitism this is what I want to deal with, so that never again when somebody is critical of Israeli policy or Jewish misbehavior that all of a sudden we are called anti-Semitic. I will prove to the world that those who even use the term are not Semitic at all.

Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10

I know that by singling out not all Jews, but those specific irreligious Jews that the scripture calls the Synagogue of Satan, those who use their power to influence people away from the way of God, making evil fair-seeming to them these irreligious Jews who claim they are Jews and they are not. They blaspheme the name of a Jew; a Jew is a good name. Theres deception here and the deceiver and the deception has to be exposed.

Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10

We could charge you with being the most virulent anti-Black group in the annals of our history. I didnt say we would, I said we could. I used the conditional tense. I said we could charge you with being the most deceitful person acting, playing with our friend while you have been our worst enemy.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

These who call us anti-Semitic are not Semitic at all. They have no connection whatsoever to the Holy Land. They are usurpers, land grabbers.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

You are of the Synagogue of Satan and therefore will be dealt with by God.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

Now, Jews are very sensitive people. If you even look like youre gonna criticize them they get very defensive. And you could say theyre defensive because of what they suffered in Europe. That may be one reason. But the main reason is, see when somebody has lied, and stolen your birthright, the one thing they fear is not your guns, because they got some bigger. They dont fear your so-called scholarship cause they arranged your education. And they never taught you anything that would allow you to upset their rule. But what they fear most is the truth.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

Ive asked [the Jewish people], since your people put ours in this condition, why dont you help me raise our people up from the degraded state that your people have put them in.

Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10

To all of those who feel that the children of Israel are over in that place they call Israel, you are mistaken.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

Other than the Bible there is no historical record of anybody names Jews in bondage in Egypt in 400 years you have to keep your eyes open for the game that may be put over on you by a smart crooked deceiver. Now there’s no historical record of their suffering in bondage like thatnow they were freed from a bondage alrightbut that was in the hills and cave sides of Europe.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

These people have no legitimate connection to that land.They didn’t come into existence in the Holy Land.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

Jewish people claim Abraham.Sorry. Sorry.I have to tell you the masquerade is over.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

Do you know that in Europe in every nation where they were, they led an industry in commerce in trade in banking? And the gentiles were angry with them because everywhere they went, they ruled. So the gentiles rose up against the Jews and persecuted them in Europe.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

When they came to America they went into the South and there they found common ground with the gentiles who hated black people, because that same Babylonian Talmud, the rabbis developed the myth of Ham. That you and I are the children of Ham, cursed, black, doomed So when they got in the South they just fueled the gentiles with the curse of Ham and that has spread throughout the world. It has poisoned the bloodstream of Islam, of Christianity, of Judaism, of Communism, of Socialism.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

I’m here to tell you no black man or woman becomes a multimillionaire without friendship in the Jewish community. Did you know that nearly all prominent Negro actors and musicians have or had Jewish sponsors and managers? They have a way of attaching themselves to your gifts, but you get nothing. They get it all.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

And do you know that when our brother was elected, Jewish people wrote, as Bill Clinton was the first Black president, Barack Obama would be the first Jewish president. Now that’s a terrible thing to say but they were telling you, we own the brother.’ His early money came from Goldman Sachs. He was nurtured by Jews who saw in him his brilliance. He’s a beautiful human being. And they knew that as brilliant as he was, they could use him to trick black people away from the promise of God.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

He’s president now and he’s upsetting them. Because all the Jewish presidents met him in the Oval Office and told him to go easy on Israel and settlements in the West Bank. And because he was strong out of Israel they started calling him what they been calling me: an anti-Semite.

Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10

A lecture like this has put me in deep trouble with those forces that run this world. I have never been more prepared in my life to do what it takes, even if it’s the loss of my life, to free you. But I can tell you, they killed their last prophet when they killed Jesus.

“I’m not an anti-Semite, I never have been one. I do not hate the Jewish people; put that down! What I hate is the degree of control that they exercise over Black intellectual, cultural expression. I do not think that no human being should determine how high we can go, that can only be determined by God and by us; not by no white man, no black man, no human being [crowd cheers].”

Millions More Movement rally, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 8/31/05

“Now the thinking of these neoconservatives is written of in scripture. In the book of Revelations, 2 and 9, it reads, ‘I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not but are a synagogue of Satan.’ What is the blasphemy? A Jew is a noble name. A Jew means one who is in a covenant relationship with God in obedience to the divine laws, statues and commandments of God. But these people claim to be Jews but they’re not in obedience to God’s law, they have given a mission of evil a divine look on it. And George W. Bush has swallowed that bait, hook line and sinker. The synagogue of Satan is a gathering of persons of like mind and spirit who are in opposition to the will of God. So Paul said we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers that are not of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places.

“See, you so called Jews I’m not gonna give you the credit for being one of those that obey God. You portrayed us, you know what images do, that’s why you jumped on Mel Gibson. But you painted us, big lips, red eyes, kinky hair, you put in the movies like that. You mocked our characteristics and made us to hate God’s creation of us. You did that. Hollywood did that.You take our strongest, more courageous black minds, you think we don’t see you? And you put us in Hollywood. You give us television shows, and then we gotta bug our eyes.”

Saviours’ Day Speech, Chicago, 2/29/04

“You don’t mention the horror of our suffering. Here’s whyit’s because of something called the Hamitic curse. Now I know that this is kinda rough. But according to the Babylonian scholars, writers of the Talmud, not the Torah, but Talmud. Now I want you to listen.Look at this now, the Hamitic curse was written off in the Talmud 400 years after the birth of Jesus. And the way they wrote it was, I got to find the exact words, ’cause it’s really powerful.Oh, Lord, let me find it. I’m gonna take my time. Oh boy, well I’m gonna say it, in the Talmud they talk abut because he looked at Noah in that condition and marked the redness of his eyes, the turning of his head made these kinks in his hair, the thickness of his lips that’s our features. We were black and cursed.

Saviours’ Day Speech, Chicago, 2/29/04

“But what you have in the Bible has been added to and taken away from by the Jews. Oh here goes this anti-Semite.’ This Koran says that the Jews have altered the word of God out of its place. They did not want the masters of the people to know what Jesus really said, what Moses really said, because then you wouldn’t have a yardstick to measure their deviations.”

–“What is Islam?,” speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 11/23/03

“What had they done to deserve such a harsh judgment from God? Those who are Jews and those who are Christians, those who believe in Allah on the last day, they have their reward from their Lord. There are beautiful members of the Jewish community who are trying their utmost to follow the law and the teachings of Moses and the prophets that God sent to Israel. But there’s another Jew who is not really a Jew. He is an imposter posing as Jew. In the Bible, in the book of Revelations [it] says ‘Those who say they are Jews and are not, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan.’ Who are the masters of Hollywood, how could you be a righteous Jew and promote that which is forbidden by the God of Israel? Come on now. How could you be a righteous Jew and publish the filth that is published daily feeding the minds of the American people and the people of the world filth and indecency, and making it fair seeming in their eye?”

“What is Islam?,” speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 11/23/03

“We know that the most powerful people in the country, many of whom are Jews, don’t like Farrakhan.”

What is Islam?,” speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 11/23/03

“Even though the Koran says and the prophet Mohammed predicted that the Mahdi would come, somebody would come as a guide. Why? Because his own community had lost the path that he had put them on. Christians, you have lost the path that Jesus put you on. And the Jewish or Hebrew community lost the path that Moses and the prophets of Israel put the Jewish people on. We’re off that path.”

–8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

“When Jesus was preaching, his enemies were the scribes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, He was preaching in the Roman Empire, and the people wanted to trap him for the Roman authorities. But under the Roman authorities were the Jewish religious authorities. They were wrapped in the law. But they were wrapped in the letter, but not in the spirit. Jesus was more than a man of the letter, Jesus was a man of the spirit. But he said, ‘I didn’t come to change the law. I came to fulfill that which was written in the law.’ There’s a whole lot difference between a man that gives the law and a man who fulfills what is written in the law He did something that they thought was contrary to the law. And sometimes when you’re a religious hypocrite, you use your knowledge of the law to hide a self-righteous hypocrisy.”

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, 10/16/03

“See how you can see Jesus in ancient Rome. See how you can use or see the rabbinical scholars, the Levites, the Sadducees, the Pharisees, and their attack on the master? See how Pontius Pilate washed his hands of the matter? See how they [the Jews] brought him into court on false charges? See how they plotted to crucify him? And it’s easy to sing about what was. It’s difficult to believe that what was, is. The Rome of yesterday is nothing to the America of today.”

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

“You say I hate Jews. I don’t hate the Jewish people, I never have. But there [are] some things I don’t like. ‘What is it you don’t like, Farrakhan?’ I don’t like the way you leech on us. See a leech is somebody that sucks your blood, takes from you and don’t give you a damn thing. See, I don’t like that kind of arrangement. You become our manager, you become our agent. Every one of us that got talent, we can’t make it because you opened the door, and when you opened the door you get and we end up dead with nothing, owing the IRS.”

8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

“So from that point on, when I said that, the next day, in New York, a rabbi was on television calling me the new black Hitler. Now what is that? You are so used to black people cowing down that you’re not used to a man talking to another man? So you’re gonna call me Hitler, a man who had nothing in his heart but the murder of Jews. You’re gonna put that on me, so that any of your children will feel that it’s an honor for me to be dead. And then some of them come out where I’m speaking, said, ‘Who do you want, Farrakhan! How do you want him? Dead.’ Did you think we were gonna take that crap sitting down? Do you want to ignite revolution all over America? Is that what you want? Do you want the anger of God? So what I’m saying to my Christian friends-there has not been a black leader in America locked in a struggle with the Jewish community but Louis Farrakhan. Now open your eyes. Name me one. When it comes to someone being a black anti-Semite who do they single out, who is made the litmus test when you go to work and they ask you what do you think about Farrakhan? They ain’t asking you a damn thing about nobody else. Why me? Did you ever stop to consider who are the scribes. The Latin word, scribo, meaning ‘I write.’ For 18 years they have written against me, more than any black leader before or since. The scribes, who are these Pharisees? See, who are they, who are these guys? They call themselves Muslims. But they’re not true. That’s what they said about Jesus. He wasn’t true. Because you felt he went outside of the law.”

The Wrath of Farrakhan : snopes.com

FACT CHECK: Did Louis Farrakhan say that “if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us”?

Claim: Louis Farrakhan said that “if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us.”

TRUE

Example: [Collected via e-mail, August 2015]

I received the following text in an email. It seemed odd that it has not been reported in mainstream news. Google searches showed that the story has been retold many times, but only by right-wing opinion sites. Again, seems odd that it only seems to be reverberating in an echo chamber. Is this true? Here is the quote I saw:

“If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them. Let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.” Louis Farrakhan speech at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami on July 30, 2015

Origins: In August 2015, a number of political blogs and web sites reproduced the statement cited above and attributed it to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an “extremist” and “black separatist”:

Louis Farrakhan heads the Nation of Islam, a group he has led since 1977 and that is based on a somewhat bizarre and fundamentally anti-white theology. Farrakhan is an anti-Semite who routinely accuses Jews of manipulating the U.S. government and controlling the levers of world power. Farrakhan blames Jews for the slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping and general black oppression. Farrakhan’s tone grew more belligerent in June 2010, when he sent letters to several leaders of the Jewish community as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center demanding that they realize the evils they have perpetrated and that they work to further Farrakhan’s goals. The letter ended with a threat to “ruin and destroy your power and influence here and throughout the world” if his terms were not met.

Many of the sites that reproduced the statement attributed to Farrakhan referenced a date and location but did not include context or documentation for the quotation. Documentation is easy enough to find, however, in a YouTube video uploaded on 30 July 2015 that captures Farrakhan speaking those words:

The context of Farrakhan’s remarks was also easily to locate in an article published on 4 August 2015 to his web site The Final Call. An excerpt from those remarks containing the passage in question (which referenced a popular rumor about Charleston shooting suspect Dylann Roof) read:

Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children while White folks give the killers hamburgers. Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy. Death is sweeter. The Qur’an teaches persecution is worse than slaughter, then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain. If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us, stalk them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.

Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim :: Daniel Pipes

Since he became involved with the presidential campaign of Jesse Jackson in November 1983, Louis Farrakhan has been universally portrayed as a Muslim, and his views have been ascribed to the Islamic religion. For example, in a description of Farrakhan’s enrolling to vote for the first time, an article in The Washington Post noted that his action “is a major break with Muslim preachings that blacks not participate in a political process controlled by what they call white oppressors.”

But this is wrong. Louis Farrakhan is not a Muslim; Islam says nothing about blacks voting in U.S. elections. Instead, Farrakhan subscribes to an American black religion founded in Detroit 50 years ago. His faith is not recognized as Islamic by real Muslims, and his teachings bear almost no resemblance to those of Islam. Farrakhan is as much a Muslim as the Shriner is an Arab.

Farrakhan leads a group formally known as the “Nation of Islam,” commonly called the Black Muslims. The origins of this religion go back to 1931, when Wallace D. Fard, an itinerant silk merchant, probably from Lebanon, taught the rudiments of Islam to Elijah Poole, a 34-year-old black laborer. Poole later changed his name to Elijah Muhammad and after the disappearance of Fard in 1934, he became the leader of a group whose teachings were loosely based on Fard’s instructions. Many thousands of American blacks joined this folk religion over the subsequent decades.

Although called the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad’s religion had almost nothing in common with Islam. Rather, it was an original amalgam of animist and Christian themes elaborated by an extravagant imagination.

Islam stresses the absolute transcendence and unity of God. Elijah Muhammad said the Black Nation as a whole is God, and one person, the most powerful Black Scientist of the age, is the Supreme Being. Islam stipulates that the seventh-century prophet Muhammad was the last prophet sent to mankind; Elijah Muhammad claimed prophethood for himself. Islam condemns racism; Elijah Muhammad deemed blacks morally and spiritually superior to whites, and believed that if blacks convert to his religion, they will eventually destroy whites, who are devils. Therefore, while Islam calls on all people to accept the Koranic message, Elijah Muhammad permitted only blacks to join his religion. Islam imposes a great body of regulations on its followers; Elijah Muhammad cast these out entirely or altered them beyond recognition.

Elijah Muhammad’s main political activities had nothing to do with Islam; not his withdrawal from the U.S. electoral process, not his call for a separate state for blacks, not his emphasis on black economic self-sufficiency, and not his creation of a black paramilitary force, the Fruit of Islam.

Had Elijah Muhammad called his religion something else – say, Poolism – no one could confuse it with Islam. It would then have developed in its own fashion into a distinct faith. But he called it the Nation of Islam, and this simple fact of nomenclature profoundly affected its subsequent evolution. For as Elijah Muhammad’s followers came into contact with Islam in Africa and the Middle East during the 1960s, and as Middle Eastern Muslims took an interest in them, they began to realize how much Elijah Muhammad’s doctrines differed from Islam. The name of the American religion brought pressure to bring its practices into conformity with Islam.

Two encounters with the Middle East had particular importance. When Malcolm X, one of Elijah Muhammad’s top lieutenants, traveled to the Middle East, he became aware of the disparity between his faith and its supposed progenitor. On his return to the United States, he demanded that Elijah Muhammad adopt Islamic practices. These efforts failed, and Malcolm X left the fold to become a Muslim, taking some of Elijah Muhammad’s followers with him.

Second and even more critical, Elijah Muhammad sent some of his sons to be educated in Cairo, where they studied Arabic and Islam. Although the sons knew Islam, they kept their views quiet until Elijah Muhammad’s death in February 1975. Then one of them, Wallace Muhammad, succeeded his father. Within a few months he abandoned the old tenets and adopted those of Islam: one transcendent God, no prophet after Muhammad, no racism, the religion open to all, and adherence to Islamic regulations. The sect led by Wallace Muhammad is now called the American Muslim Mission.

As part of this transformation, Wallace recast his father as a “social reformer” (not a prophet) who deliberately misinterpreted the Koran to make it fit the needs of American blacks. Wallace also toned down his father’s politics, especially the demand for a separate state, and disbanded the paramilitary force. He went so far as to take up celebrating the Fourth of July.

Most of Elijah Muhammad’s followers accepted Wallace Muhammad’s authority and became Muslims with him. Most but not all; Louis Farrakhan took over the leadership of the minority which continued in the old beliefs.

Farrakhan uses the old name, Nation of Islam, and maintains the doctrines as they had been under Elijah Muhammad. It was the Fruit of Islam that guarded Jesse Jackson in the 1984 presidential campaign before the Secret Service took over. In April, Farrakhan warned the Democratic Party that if Jackson’s demands were not taken seriously at the national convention, he would “lead an army of black men and women to Washington, D.C. and we will negotiate for a separate state or territory of our own.” Farrakhan’s statements about Hitler, Israel, and Judaism continue in the anti-Semitic tradition begun by Elijah Muhammad.

Wallace Muhammad is a Muslim. Louis Farrakhan is not. Farrakhan’s reprehensible statements must not be ascribed to the fair-minded traditions of Islam.

Apr. 27, 2006 update: I had a chance to meet Wallace Muhammad at a conference sponsored by Sant’Egidio at Georgetown University campus today. As one of the speakers, I noted him in the audience. When I went to him to say hello, he asked, “Are you the Arabian prince?” Sadly, I had to acknowledge that I was not, which seemed to disappoint him as well.

LiveLeak.com – Nation of Islams Louis Farrakhan joins …

Proving that politics does indeed make strange bedfellows, the Nation of Islams Louis Farrakhan joined with the David Duke and other White Supremacist Groups in expressing his admiration for 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

In remarks during the Nations annual Saviours Day sermon in Chicago, the leader of the black separatist group praised Trump for not accepting money from the Jewish community, reports The Hill.

Trump is the only member who has stood in front of the Jewish community and said, I dont want your money, Farrakhan told his followers.

Anytime a man can say to those who control the politics of America, I dont want your money, that means you cant control me. And they cannot afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States. Farrakhan explained before hastening to add, Not that Im for Mr. Trump, but I like what Im looking at.

Trump has been battered for failing to immediately disavow the support of the Klan and other white supremacist organization, with former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney calling his delayed response disgusting and disqualifying.

Like Trump, Farrakhan is not a fan of the Bush family, blaming them for the 9/11 terrorist attack.

They needed another Pearl Harbor, Farrakhan stated. They needed some event that was cataclysmic, that would make the American people rise up, ready for war. They plotted a false flag operation and when a government is so rotten that they will kill innocent people to accomplish a political objective, you are not dealing with a human.

Now, they got into the [second] Bush administration and on 9/11 the Twin Towers went down. Former President George W. Bush and those devils, those Satans around him. They plotted 9/11. Aint no Muslim took control of that plane.

Hon. Minister Farrakhan | NOI.org

National Representative of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Nation of Islam

The Nation of Islam under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the catalyst for the growth and development of Islam in America. Founded in 1930 by Master Fard Muhammad and led to prominence from 1934 to 1975 by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Nation of Islam continues to positively impact the quality of life in America.

Minister Louis Farrakhan, born on May 11, 1933 in Bronx, N.Y., was reared in a highly disciplined and spiritual household in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Raised by his mother, a native of St. Kitts, Louis and his brother Alvan learned early the value of work, responsibility and intellectual development. Having a strong sensitivity to the plight of Black people, his mother engaged her sons in conversations about the struggle for freedom, justice and equality. She also exposed them to progressive material such as the Crisis magazine, published by the NAACP.

Popularly known as The Charmer, he achieved fame in Boston as a vocalist, calypso singer, dancer and violinist. In February 1955, while visiting Chicago for a musical engagement, he was invited to attend the Nation of Islams Saviours Day convention.

Although music had been his first love, within one month after joining the Nation of Islam in 1955, Minister Malcolm X told the New York Mosque and the new convert Louis X that Elijah Muhammad had said that all Muslims would have to get out of show business or get out of the Temple. Most of the musicians left Temple No. 7, but Louis X, later renamed Louis Farrakhan, chose to dedicate his life to the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

The departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1975 and the assumption of leadership by Imam W. Deen Mohammed brought drastic changes to the Nation of Islam. After approximately three years of wrestling with these changes, and a re-appraisal of the condition of Black people and the value of the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Minister Farrakhan decided to return to the teachings and program with a proven ability to uplift and reform Blacks.

His tremendous success is evidenced by mosques and study groups in over 120 cities in America, Europe, the Caribbean and missions in West Africa and South Africa devoted to the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. In rebuilding the Nation of Islam, Minister Farrakhan has renewed respect for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, his Teachings and Program.

At 80 years of age, Minister Farrakhan still maintains a grueling work schedule. He has been welcomed in a countless number of churches, sharing pulpits with Christian ministers from a variety of denominations, which has demonstrated the power of the unity of those who believe in the One God. He has addressed diverse organizations, been received in many Muslim countries as a leading Muslim thinker and teacher, and been welcomed throughout Africa, the Caribbean and Asia as a champion in the struggle for freedom, justice and equality.

In 1979, he founded The Final Call, an internationally circulated newspaper that follows in the line of The Muhammad Speaks. In 1985, Minister Farrakhan introduced the POWER concept. In 1988, the resurgent Nation of Islam repurchased its former flagship mosque in Chicago and dedicated it as Mosque Maryam, the National Center for the Re-training and Re-education of the Black Man and Woman of America and the World. In 1991, Minister Farrakhan reintroduced the Three Year Economic Program, first established by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to build an economic base for the development of Blacks through business ventures. In 1993, Minister Farrakhan penned the book, A Torchlight for America, which applied the guiding principles of justice and good will to the problems perplexing America. In May of that year, he traveled to Libreville, Gabon to attend the Second African-African American Summit where he addressed African heads of state and delegates from America. In October of 1994, Minister Farrakhan led 2,000 Blacks from America to Accra, Ghana for the Nation of Islams first International Saviours Day. Ghanaian President Jerry Rawlings officially opened and closed the five-day convention.

The popular leader and the Nation of Islam repurchased farmland in Dawson, Georgia and enjoyed a banner year in 1995 with the successful Million Man March on the Mall in Washington, D.C., which drew nearly two million men. Minister Farrakhan was inspired to call the March out of his concern over the negative image of Black men perpetuated by the media and movie industries, which focused on drugs and gang violence. The Million Man March established October 16 as a Holy Day of Atonement, Reconciliation and Responsibility. Minister Farrakhan took this healing message of atonement throughout the world during three World Friendship Tours over the next three years. His desire was to bring solutions to such problems as war, poverty, discrimination and the right to education. Minister Farrakhan would return to the Mall on Washington, D.C. in 2000 convening the Million Family March, where he called the full spectrum of members of the human family to unite according to the principle of atonement. Minister Farrakhan performed thousands of weddings, as well as renewed the vows of those recommitting themselves in a Marriage Ceremony.

As part of the major thrust for true political empowerment for the Black community, Minister Farrakhan re-registered to vote in June 1996 and formed a coalition of religious, civic and political organizations to represent the voice of the disenfranchised on the political landscape. His efforts and the overwhelming response to the call of the Million Man March resulted in an additional 1.7 million Black men voting in the 1996 presidential elections. In July 1997, the Nation of Islam, in conjunction with the World Islamic Peoples Leadership, hosted an International Islamic Conference in Chicago. A broad range of Muslim scholars from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, along with Christian, Jewish and Native American spiritual leaders participated in the conference.

Following the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, Minister Farrakhan was among the international religious voices that called for peace and resolution of conflict. He also wrote two personal letters to President George Bush offering his counsel and perspective on how to respond to the national crisis. He advised President Bush to convene spiritual leaders of various faiths for counsel. Prior to the war on Iraq, Minister Farrakhan led a delegation of religious leaders and physicians to the Middle East in an effort to spark the dialogue among nations that could prevent war.

Marking a new milestone in a life that has been devoted to the uplift of humanity, Minister Farrakhan launched a prostate cancer foundation in his name May 10-11, 2003. First diagnosed in 1991 with prostate cancer, he survived a public bout and endured critical complications after treatment that brought him 180 seconds away from death.

In July of that year, Minister Farrakhan accepted the request to host the first of a series of summits centered on the principles of reparations. Nearly 50 activists from across the country answered his call to discuss operational unity within the reparations movement for Black peoples suffering in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Culminating the Nation of Islams Saviours Day convention in February 2004, Minister Farrakhan delivered an international address entitled, Reparations: What does America and Europe Owe? What does Allah (God) promise? stepping further into the vanguard position of leadership calling for justice for the suffering masses of Black people and all oppressed people throughout the world.

On May 3, 2004, Minister Farrakhan held an international press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. themed, Guidance to America and the World in a Time of Trouble. The press conference sought to expose the plans and schemes of President George W. Bush and his neo-conservative advisors who plunged American soldiers into worldwide conflict with the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. This international press conference was translated into Arabic, French and Spanish.

In October 2005, after months of a demanding schedule traveling throughout the U.S., Minister Farrakhan called those interested in establishing a programmatic thrust for Black people in America and oppressed people across the globe to participate in the Millions More Movement, which convened back at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on the 10th Anniversary of the Historic Million Man March. The Millions More Movement involved the formation of 9 Ministries that would deal with the pressing needs of our people. Also in 2005, Minister Louis Farrakhan was voted as BET.coms Person of The Year as the person users believed made the most powerful impact on the Black community over the past year.

In April 2006, Minister Farrakhan led a delegation to Cuba to view the emergency preparedness system of the Cuban people, in the wake of the massive failure to prevent the loss of human life after Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

In January 2007, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan underwent a major 14-hour pelvic exoneration. In just a few weeks, and as a testament to the healing power of God, Minister Farrakhan stood on stage at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on February 25, 2007 to deliver the first of several speeches that year with the theme One Nation Under God.

On October 19, 2008, after nearly a year of extensive repairs and restoration, Minister Farrakhan opened the doors and grounds of Mosque Maryam to thousands of people representing all creeds and colors during a much anticipated Rededication Ceremony themed A New Beginning. This day also served as the commemoration of the 13th Anniversary of the Historic Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement.

The prayers of spiritual leaders representing the three Abrahamic faithsJudaism, Christianity and Islamwere offered to bless this momentous affair. Those who were present that day, and who watched live via internet webcast throughout the world, witnessed Minister Farrakhans message of unity and peace for the establishment of a universal government of peace for all of humanity.

Louis Farrakhan: If the Federal Govt Does Not Intercede …

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called late last month for black Americans to rise up and kill those who kill us if the federal government fails to intercede in our affairs.

The call for violence came during a July 30 speech the radical leader delivered at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami.

The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain, Farrakhan said.

So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling, he added.

Video of the excerpt was posted onFarrakhans Facebook page Monday with the hashtag #JusticeOrElse.

Farrakhan is scheduled to speak next month in Washington, D.C., during a demonstration organized in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of his 1995 million man march.

Louis Farrakhan – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Louis Farrakhan, Sr. (born Louis Eugene Wolcott; May 11, 1933, and formerly known as LouisX) is the leader of the religious group Nation of Islam (NOI). He served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, and was appointed by the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Muhammad, as the National Representative of the Nation of Islam. After Warith Deen Muhammad disbanded the NOI and started the orthodox Islamic group American Society of Muslims, Farrakhan started rebuilding the NOI. In 1981 he revived the name Nation of Islam for his organization, previously known as Final Call, regaining many of the Nation of Islam’s National properties including the NOI National Headquarters Mosque Maryam, reopening over 130 NOI mosques in America and the world. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Farrakhan as antisemitic and a proponent of an anti-white theology.[1] Farrakhan himself, however, disputes this view of his ideology.[2]

Farrakhan is a black religious and social leader. Farrakhan has been both praised and widely criticized for his often controversial political views and outspoken rhetorical style. He has been criticized for remarks that have been perceived as antisemitic, anti-white and prejudiced against gays.[1] In October 1995, he organized and led the Million Man March in Washington, D.C., calling on black men to renew their commitments to their families and communities. Farrakhan, due to health issues, reduced his responsibilities with the NOI in 2007.[3]

In recent years, however, Farrakhan has been very active, including delivering weekly online sermons throughout 2013[4] as well as speaking at both large public NOI events as well as smaller venues.[5] Since 2010, Farrakhan has advocated L Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics and the use of its “auditing” technique despite not being a Scientologist.

Farrakhan was born Louis Eugene Wolcott (also mistakenly spelled Walcott)[6] in The Bronx, New York, the younger of two sons of Sarah Mae Manning (January 16, 1900 November 18, 1988) and Percival Clark, immigrants from the Caribbean islands. His mother was born in Saint Kitts and Nevis. His father was a Jamaican native. The couple split before Louis was born. Farrakhan says he never knew his biological father. His mother then moved in with Louis Wolcott from Barbados, who became his stepfather.[7] After Louis’ stepfather died in 1936, the Wolcott family moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where they settled in the West Indian neighborhood of the Roxbury area.[7]

Starting at the age of six, Wolcott received rigorous training in the violin.[6] He received his first violin at the age of six, and by the time he was 13 years old he had played with the Boston College Orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony.[7] A year later, he went on to win national competitions. In 1946, he was one of the first black performers to appear on the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour,[6] where he also won an award. He and his family were active members of the Episcopal St. Cyprian’s Church in Roxbury, Massachusetts.[7]

Wolcott attended the prestigious Boston Latin School, and later the English High School, from which he graduated.[8] He completed three years at Winston-Salem Teachers College, where he had a track scholarship.[9]

Wolcott married Betsy Ross while he was in college. (She later took the name Khadijah Farrakhan.) She lived in Boston,[when?] and was pregnant with their child. Due to complications from the pregnancy, Wolcott dropped out after completing his junior year of college to devote time to her and their child. They are still married.[citation needed]

In the 1950s, Wolcott started his professional music career by recording several calypso albums as a singer under the name “The Charmer”. He also performed on tour. In February 1955, using part of his middle name, Eugene, “Calypso Gene” was headlining a show in Chicago, Illinois, entitled “Calypso Follies.” One of his songs was on the top 100 Billboard Chart for five years in a row. There he first came in contact with the teachings of the Nation of Islam (NOI) through Rodney Smith, a friend and saxophonist from Boston. Wolcott and his wife Betsy were invited to the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day address by Elijah Muhammad. Prior to going to Saviours’ Day, due to then-Minister MalcolmX’s popularity in the media, Wolcott had never heard of Elijah Muhammad, and like many outside of the Nation of Islam, he thought that MalcolmX was the leader of the Nation of Islam.[citation needed]

In 1955, Wolcott fulfilled the requirements to be a registered Muslim/registered believer/registered laborer. He memorized and recited verbatim the 10 questions and answers of the NOI’s Student Enrollment. He then wrote a Saviour’s Letter that must be sent to the NOI’s headquarters in Chicago. The Saviour’s Letter must be copied verbatim, and have the identical handwriting of the Nation of Islam’s founder, Wallace Fard Muhammad. After having the Saviour’s Letter reviewed, and approved by the NOI’s headquarters in Chicago in July 1955, Wolcott received a letter of approval from the Nation of Islam acknowledging his official membership as a registered Muslim/registered believer/registered laborer in the NOI. As a result, he received his “X.” The “X” was considered a placeholder, used to indicate that Nation of Islam members original African family names had been lost. They acknowledged that European surnames were slave names, assigned by the slaveowners to mark their ownership. Members of the NOI used the “X” while waiting for their Islamic names, which some NOI members received later in their conversion.[10] Hence, Louis Wolcott became LouisX. Elijah Muhammad then replaced his “X” with the “holy name” Farrakhan, an Arabic name meaning “The Criterion”.

The summer after Louis’ conversion, Elijah Muhammad stated that all musicians in the NOI had to choose between music and the Nation of Islam.[6] LouisX did so only after performing one final event at the Nevel Country Club.[citation needed]

Oh there’s one way in the back. At the top of the medical profession, the top in that are members of the Jewish community. Anybody in media? Who’s the top in that field? Audience: Jews. Farrakhan: Anybody a rapper in the house? There’s rappers. You can rap, ain’t nothing wrong with that, but at the top of that are those that control the industry.

Well who’s the master of the bankers? Audience: Jews. Farrakhan: TALK TO ME! Audience: Jews!

Audience: [applause] Farrakhan: Now, I close. “All is Vanity” sermon at Mosque Maryam, Chicago 7/1/12 White Christians, [you saw the plight of blacks] but what did you do? You walked right by on the other side. Then along came the Jewish people. You did a little better. You came and looked at us: ‘damn they’re in bad shape! Let’s see how we can take advantage of the shape that they’re in.’ “Guidance in a Time of Trouble” speech in San Diego, 5/27/12 Do you know Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over? Saviours’ Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12 In 100 years, they control movies, television, recording, publishing, commerce, radio, they own it all. Magazines. Why do you want all, everything? Saviours’ Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12 Did you know that the Koran says that Jews are the most violent of people. I didn’t write it, but I’m living to see it. Saviours’ Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12 I think we have made a grave mistake; we have been deceived into thinking that the Jews have been our allies in our recent civil rights struggle… Yes, he poses as your friend. Hes with you as an agent, hes with you as a manager, hes with you as an investor, hes with you as a guide in economic development, but he has never asked you to do what he has done. He networks with other rich, influential Jews and he buys, he invests, hes in trade and commerce. Interview with Washington, DC, radio station WPFW-FM, 4/1/10 Some of you think that Im just somebody whos got something out for the Jewish people. Youre stupid. Do you think I would waste my time if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and the people of the world again. Saviours’ Day, Rosemont, Illinois, 2/27/11 If the white race is under the name Israel, where did the name Jew come from? Adam never said he was a Jew. Abraham didn’t say he was a Jew. Moses didn’t say he was a Jew. The name Jew comes after Judah. Hebrew is different. The original Hebrews look just like you. The original Hebrews are Black. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10 How did we get a Black president? Because those Satanic Jews know the time that this is the time of your separation from them that God wants to give you a land of your own as the cornerstone of the Kingdom of God You didn’t see when they got in the room and said we have to deceive them and through them deceive the entire world’ How could they be the chosen of God and leading the world into filth and indecency? Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10 You can’t do nothing in Hollywood unless you go by them. You a hip-hop artist? You can’t do nothing, you gotta go by them. You want to be a great sports figure? They own that plantation Children of Israel, they got you jumping through hoops. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10 They stole land in Palestine And this Synagogue of Satan knows that the end of their time of rule is up. The jig is up. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10 If they go to war with Iran, which they’re setting the stage for now, it’ll be because the Zionists have pushed Obama to do their bidding and to put a black face on an illegitimate war and use black and brown and poor white to fight a war for the Ashkenazi false Jews that have come out of Europe. These same people started apartheid in Africa. The same Jews are guilty of Jim Crow and the laws that segregated us and they’re the same forces that are in Palestine right now telling Palestinians in their own land what roads they can travel on and what they’re not free to travel on. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/3/10 White people, although they hated us, are not the architects of white supremacy. That started in Europe and it is here in America and we document the architecture of white supremacy in this volume, Volume 2 The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews. Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10 This thing called anti-Semitism this is what I want to deal with, so that never again when somebody is critical of Israeli policy or Jewish misbehavior that all of a sudden we are called anti-Semitic. I will prove to the world that those who even use the term are not Semitic at all. Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10 I know that by singling out not all Jews, but those specific irreligious Jews that the scripture calls the Synagogue of Satan, those who use their power to influence people away from the way of God, making evil fair-seeming to them these irreligious Jews who claim they are Jews and they are not. They blaspheme the name of a Jew; a Jew is a good name. Theres deception here and the deceiver and the deception has to be exposed. Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, 8/23/10 We could charge you with being the most virulent anti-Black group in the annals of our history. I didnt say we would, I said we could. I used the conditional tense. I said we could charge you with being the most deceitful person acting, playing with our friend while you have been our worst enemy. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10 These who call us anti-Semitic are not Semitic at all. They have no connection whatsoever to the Holy Land. They are usurpers, land grabbers. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10 You are of the Synagogue of Satan and therefore will be dealt with by God. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10 Now, Jews are very sensitive people. If you even look like youre gonna criticize them they get very defensive. And you could say theyre defensive because of what they suffered in Europe. That may be one reason. But the main reason is, see when somebody has lied, and stolen your birthright, the one thing they fear is not your guns, because they got some bigger. They dont fear your so-called scholarship cause they arranged your education. And they never taught you anything that would allow you to upset their rule. But what they fear most is the truth. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10 Ive asked [the Jewish people], since your people put ours in this condition, why dont you help me raise our people up from the degraded state that your people have put them in. Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 7/11/10 To all of those who feel that the children of Israel are over in that place they call Israel, you are mistaken. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 Other than the Bible there is no historical record of anybody names Jews in bondage in Egypt in 400 years you have to keep your eyes open for the game that may be put over on you by a smart crooked deceiver. Now there’s no historical record of their suffering in bondage like thatnow they were freed from a bondage alrightbut that was in the hills and cave sides of Europe. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 These people have no legitimate connection to that land.They didn’t come into existence in the Holy Land. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 Jewish people claim Abraham.Sorry. Sorry.I have to tell you the masquerade is over. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 Do you know that in Europe in every nation where they were, they led an industry in commerce in trade in banking? And the gentiles were angry with them because everywhere they went, they ruled. So the gentiles rose up against the Jews and persecuted them in Europe. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 When they came to America they went into the South and there they found common ground with the gentiles who hated black people, because that same Babylonian Talmud, the rabbis developed the myth of Ham. That you and I are the children of Ham, cursed, black, doomed So when they got in the South they just fueled the gentiles with the curse of Ham and that has spread throughout the world. It has poisoned the bloodstream of Islam, of Christianity, of Judaism, of Communism, of Socialism. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 I’m here to tell you no black man or woman becomes a multimillionaire without friendship in the Jewish community. Did you know that nearly all prominent Negro actors and musicians have or had Jewish sponsors and managers? They have a way of attaching themselves to your gifts, but you get nothing. They get it all. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 And do you know that when our brother was elected, Jewish people wrote, as Bill Clinton was the first Black president, Barack Obama would be the first Jewish president. Now that’s a terrible thing to say but they were telling you, we own the brother.’ His early money came from Goldman Sachs. He was nurtured by Jews who saw in him his brilliance. He’s a beautiful human being. And they knew that as brilliant as he was, they could use him to trick black people away from the promise of God. Speech in Atlanta, 6/26/10 He’s president now and he’s upsetting them. Because all the Jewish presidents met him in the Oval Office and told him to go easy on Israel and settlements in the West Bank.

I have never been more prepared in my life to do what it takes, even if it’s the loss of my life, to free you. But I can tell you, they killed their last prophet when they killed Jesus.

I do not hate the Jewish people; put that down! What I hate is the degree of control that they exercise over Black intellectual, cultural expression. I do not think that no human being should determine how high we can go, that can only be determined by God and by us; not by no white man, no black man, no human being [crowd cheers].” Millions More Movement rally, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 8/31/05 “Now the thinking of these neoconservatives is written of in scripture. In the book of Revelations, 2 and 9, it reads, ‘I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not but are a synagogue of Satan.’ What is the blasphemy? A Jew is a noble name. A Jew means one who is in a covenant relationship with God in obedience to the divine laws, statues and commandments of God. But these people claim to be Jews but they’re not in obedience to God’s law, they have given a mission of evil a divine look on it. And George W. Bush has swallowed that bait, hook line and sinker. The synagogue of Satan is a gathering of persons of like mind and spirit who are in opposition to the will of God. So Paul said we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers that are not of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places. National Press Club, Washington, D.C., 5/3/2004 “Dewey, Kant and Hegel, and the rabbis that wrote the Talmud, make blacks inferior.” National Black Agenda Convention, Boston, 3/18/04 “I call them the so-called Jews because to be a Jew you have to adhere to the statutes and laws that create the special relationship. How can you be a Jew and promote homosexual marriage?” National Black Agenda Convention, Boston, 3/18/04 “See, you so called Jews I’m not gonna give you the credit for being one of those that obey God. You portrayed us, you know what images do, that’s why you jumped on Mel Gibson. But you painted us, big lips, red eyes, kinky hair, you put in the movies like that. You mocked our characteristics and made us to hate God’s creation of us. You did that. Hollywood did that.You take our strongest, more courageous black minds, you think we don’t see you? And you put us in Hollywood. You give us television shows, and then we gotta bug our eyes.” Saviours’ Day Speech, Chicago, 2/29/04 “You don’t mention the horror of our suffering. Here’s whyit’s because of something called the Hamitic curse. Now I know that this is kinda rough. But according to the Babylonian scholars, writers of the Talmud, not the Torah, but Talmud. Now I want you to listen.Look at this now, the Hamitic curse was written off in the Talmud 400 years after the birth of Jesus. And the way they wrote it was, I got to find the exact words, ’cause it’s really powerful.Oh, Lord, let me find it. I’m gonna take my time. Oh boy, well I’m gonna say it, in the Talmud they talk abut because he looked at Noah in that condition and marked the redness of his eyes, the turning of his head made these kinks in his hair, the thickness of his lips that’s our features. We were black and cursed. Saviours’ Day Speech, Chicago, 2/29/04 “But what you have in the Bible has been added to and taken away from by the Jews. Oh here goes this anti-Semite.’ This Koran says that the Jews have altered the word of God out of its place. They did not want the masters of the people to know what Jesus really said, what Moses really said, because then you wouldn’t have a yardstick to measure their deviations.” –“What is Islam?,” speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 11/23/03 “What had they done to deserve such a harsh judgment from God? Those who are Jews and those who are Christians, those who believe in Allah on the last day, they have their reward from their Lord. There are beautiful members of the Jewish community who are trying their utmost to follow the law and the teachings of Moses and the prophets that God sent to Israel. But there’s another Jew who is not really a Jew. He is an imposter posing as Jew. In the Bible, in the book of Revelations [it] says ‘Those who say they are Jews and are not, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan.’ Who are the masters of Hollywood, how could you be a righteous Jew and promote that which is forbidden by the God of Israel? Come on now. How could you be a righteous Jew and publish the filth that is published daily feeding the minds of the American people and the people of the world filth and indecency, and making it fair seeming in their eye?” “What is Islam?,” speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 11/23/03 “We know that the most powerful people in the country, many of whom are Jews, don’t like Farrakhan.” What is Islam?,” speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 11/23/03 “Even though the Koran says and the prophet Mohammed predicted that the Mahdi would come, somebody would come as a guide. Why? Because his own community had lost the path that he had put them on. Christians, you have lost the path that Jesus put you on. And the Jewish or Hebrew community lost the path that Moses and the prophets of Israel put the Jewish people on. We’re off that path.” –8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03 “When Jesus was preaching, his enemies were the scribes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, He was preaching in the Roman Empire, and the people wanted to trap him for the Roman authorities. But under the Roman authorities were the Jewish religious authorities. They were wrapped in the law. But they were wrapped in the letter, but not in the spirit. Jesus was more than a man of the letter, Jesus was a man of the spirit. But he said, ‘I didn’t come to change the law. I came to fulfill that which was written in the law.’ There’s a whole lot difference between a man that gives the law and a man who fulfills what is written in the law He did something that they thought was contrary to the law. And sometimes when you’re a religious hypocrite, you use your knowledge of the law to hide a self-righteous hypocrisy.” 8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, 10/16/03 “See how you can see Jesus in ancient Rome. See how you can use or see the rabbinical scholars, the Levites, the Sadducees, the Pharisees, and their attack on the master? See how Pontius Pilate washed his hands of the matter? See how they [the Jews] brought him into court on false charges? See how they plotted to crucify him? And it’s easy to sing about what was. It’s difficult to believe that what was, is. The Rome of yesterday is nothing to the America of today.” 8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03 “You say I hate Jews. I don’t hate the Jewish people, I never have. But there [are] some things I don’t like. ‘What is it you don’t like, Farrakhan?’ I don’t like the way you leech on us. See a leech is somebody that sucks your blood, takes from you and don’t give you a damn thing. See, I don’t like that kind of arrangement. You become our manager, you become our agent. Every one of us that got talent, we can’t make it because you opened the door, and when you opened the door you get and we end up dead with nothing, owing the IRS.” 8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03 “So from that point on, when I said that, the next day, in New York, a rabbi was on television calling me the new black Hitler. Now what is that? You are so used to black people cowing down that you’re not used to a man talking to another man? So you’re gonna call me Hitler, a man who had nothing in his heart but the murder of Jews. You’re gonna put that on me, so that any of your children will feel that it’s an honor for me to be dead. And then some of them come out where I’m speaking, said, ‘Who do you want, Farrakhan! How do you want him? Dead.’ Did you think we were gonna take that crap sitting down? Do you want to ignite revolution all over America? Is that what you want? Do you want the anger of God? So what I’m saying to my Christian friends-there has not been a black leader in America locked in a struggle with the Jewish community but Louis Farrakhan. Now open your eyes. Name me one. When it comes to someone being a black anti-Semite who do they single out, who is made the litmus test when you go to work and they ask you what do you think about Farrakhan? They ain’t asking you a damn thing about nobody else. Why me? Did you ever stop to consider who are the scribes. The Latin word, scribo, meaning ‘I write.’ For 18 years they have written against me, more than any black leader before or since. The scribes, who are these Pharisees? See, who are they, who are these guys? They call themselves Muslims. But they’re not true. That’s what they said about Jesus. He wasn’t true. Because you felt he went outside of the law.” 8th Anniversary The Holy Day of Atonement speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, 10/16/03

The Wrath of Farrakhan : snopes.com

FACT CHECK: Did Louis Farrakhan say that “if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us”? Claim: Louis Farrakhan said that “if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us.” TRUE Example: [Collected via e-mail, August 2015] I received the following text in an email. It seemed odd that it has not been reported in mainstream news. Google searches showed that the story has been retold many times, but only by right-wing opinion sites. Again, seems odd that it only seems to be reverberating in an echo chamber. Is this true? Here is the quote I saw: “If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them. Let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.” Louis Farrakhan speech at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami on July 30, 2015 Origins: In August 2015, a number of political blogs and web sites reproduced the statement cited above and attributed it to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an “extremist” and “black separatist”: Louis Farrakhan heads the Nation of Islam, a group he has led since 1977 and that is based on a somewhat bizarre and fundamentally anti-white theology. Farrakhan is an anti-Semite who routinely accuses Jews of manipulating the U.S. government and controlling the levers of world power. Farrakhan blames Jews for the slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping and general black oppression. Farrakhan’s tone grew more belligerent in June 2010, when he sent letters to several leaders of the Jewish community as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center demanding that they realize the evils they have perpetrated and that they work to further Farrakhan’s goals. The letter ended with a threat to “ruin and destroy your power and influence here and throughout the world” if his terms were not met. Many of the sites that reproduced the statement attributed to Farrakhan referenced a date and location but did not include context or documentation for the quotation. Documentation is easy enough to find, however, in a YouTube video uploaded on 30 July 2015 that captures Farrakhan speaking those words: The context of Farrakhan’s remarks was also easily to locate in an article published on 4 August 2015 to his web site The Final Call. An excerpt from those remarks containing the passage in question (which referenced a popular rumor about Charleston shooting suspect Dylann Roof) read: Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children while White folks give the killers hamburgers. Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy. Death is sweeter. The Qur’an teaches persecution is worse than slaughter, then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain. If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us, stalk them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.

Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim :: Daniel Pipes

Since he became involved with the presidential campaign of Jesse Jackson in November 1983, Louis Farrakhan has been universally portrayed as a Muslim, and his views have been ascribed to the Islamic religion. For example, in a description of Farrakhan’s enrolling to vote for the first time, an article in The Washington Post noted that his action “is a major break with Muslim preachings that blacks not participate in a political process controlled by what they call white oppressors.” But this is wrong. Louis Farrakhan is not a Muslim; Islam says nothing about blacks voting in U.S. elections. Instead, Farrakhan subscribes to an American black religion founded in Detroit 50 years ago. His faith is not recognized as Islamic by real Muslims, and his teachings bear almost no resemblance to those of Islam. Farrakhan is as much a Muslim as the Shriner is an Arab. Farrakhan leads a group formally known as the “Nation of Islam,” commonly called the Black Muslims. The origins of this religion go back to 1931, when Wallace D. Fard, an itinerant silk merchant, probably from Lebanon, taught the rudiments of Islam to Elijah Poole, a 34-year-old black laborer. Poole later changed his name to Elijah Muhammad and after the disappearance of Fard in 1934, he became the leader of a group whose teachings were loosely based on Fard’s instructions. Many thousands of American blacks joined this folk religion over the subsequent decades. Although called the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad’s religion had almost nothing in common with Islam. Rather, it was an original amalgam of animist and Christian themes elaborated by an extravagant imagination. Islam stresses the absolute transcendence and unity of God. Elijah Muhammad said the Black Nation as a whole is God, and one person, the most powerful Black Scientist of the age, is the Supreme Being. Islam stipulates that the seventh-century prophet Muhammad was the last prophet sent to mankind; Elijah Muhammad claimed prophethood for himself. Islam condemns racism; Elijah Muhammad deemed blacks morally and spiritually superior to whites, and believed that if blacks convert to his religion, they will eventually destroy whites, who are devils. Therefore, while Islam calls on all people to accept the Koranic message, Elijah Muhammad permitted only blacks to join his religion. Islam imposes a great body of regulations on its followers; Elijah Muhammad cast these out entirely or altered them beyond recognition. Elijah Muhammad’s main political activities had nothing to do with Islam; not his withdrawal from the U.S. electoral process, not his call for a separate state for blacks, not his emphasis on black economic self-sufficiency, and not his creation of a black paramilitary force, the Fruit of Islam. Had Elijah Muhammad called his religion something else – say, Poolism – no one could confuse it with Islam. It would then have developed in its own fashion into a distinct faith. But he called it the Nation of Islam, and this simple fact of nomenclature profoundly affected its subsequent evolution. For as Elijah Muhammad’s followers came into contact with Islam in Africa and the Middle East during the 1960s, and as Middle Eastern Muslims took an interest in them, they began to realize how much Elijah Muhammad’s doctrines differed from Islam. The name of the American religion brought pressure to bring its practices into conformity with Islam. Two encounters with the Middle East had particular importance. When Malcolm X, one of Elijah Muhammad’s top lieutenants, traveled to the Middle East, he became aware of the disparity between his faith and its supposed progenitor. On his return to the United States, he demanded that Elijah Muhammad adopt Islamic practices. These efforts failed, and Malcolm X left the fold to become a Muslim, taking some of Elijah Muhammad’s followers with him. Second and even more critical, Elijah Muhammad sent some of his sons to be educated in Cairo, where they studied Arabic and Islam. Although the sons knew Islam, they kept their views quiet until Elijah Muhammad’s death in February 1975. Then one of them, Wallace Muhammad, succeeded his father. Within a few months he abandoned the old tenets and adopted those of Islam: one transcendent God, no prophet after Muhammad, no racism, the religion open to all, and adherence to Islamic regulations. The sect led by Wallace Muhammad is now called the American Muslim Mission. As part of this transformation, Wallace recast his father as a “social reformer” (not a prophet) who deliberately misinterpreted the Koran to make it fit the needs of American blacks. Wallace also toned down his father’s politics, especially the demand for a separate state, and disbanded the paramilitary force. He went so far as to take up celebrating the Fourth of July. Most of Elijah Muhammad’s followers accepted Wallace Muhammad’s authority and became Muslims with him. Most but not all; Louis Farrakhan took over the leadership of the minority which continued in the old beliefs. Farrakhan uses the old name, Nation of Islam, and maintains the doctrines as they had been under Elijah Muhammad. It was the Fruit of Islam that guarded Jesse Jackson in the 1984 presidential campaign before the Secret Service took over. In April, Farrakhan warned the Democratic Party that if Jackson’s demands were not taken seriously at the national convention, he would “lead an army of black men and women to Washington, D.C. and we will negotiate for a separate state or territory of our own.” Farrakhan’s statements about Hitler, Israel, and Judaism continue in the anti-Semitic tradition begun by Elijah Muhammad. Wallace Muhammad is a Muslim. Louis Farrakhan is not. Farrakhan’s reprehensible statements must not be ascribed to the fair-minded traditions of Islam. Apr. 27, 2006 update: I had a chance to meet Wallace Muhammad at a conference sponsored by Sant’Egidio at Georgetown University campus today. As one of the speakers, I noted him in the audience. When I went to him to say hello, he asked, “Are you the Arabian prince?” Sadly, I had to acknowledge that I was not, which seemed to disappoint him as well.

LiveLeak.com – Nation of Islams Louis Farrakhan joins …

Proving that politics does indeed make strange bedfellows, the Nation of Islams Louis Farrakhan joined with the David Duke and other White Supremacist Groups in expressing his admiration for 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump. In remarks during the Nations annual Saviours Day sermon in Chicago, the leader of the black separatist group praised Trump for not accepting money from the Jewish community, reports The Hill. Trump is the only member who has stood in front of the Jewish community and said, I dont want your money, Farrakhan told his followers. Anytime a man can say to those who control the politics of America, I dont want your money, that means you cant control me. And they cannot afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States. Farrakhan explained before hastening to add, Not that Im for Mr. Trump, but I like what Im looking at. Trump has been battered for failing to immediately disavow the support of the Klan and other white supremacist organization, with former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney calling his delayed response disgusting and disqualifying. Like Trump, Farrakhan is not a fan of the Bush family, blaming them for the 9/11 terrorist attack. They needed another Pearl Harbor, Farrakhan stated. They needed some event that was cataclysmic, that would make the American people rise up, ready for war. They plotted a false flag operation and when a government is so rotten that they will kill innocent people to accomplish a political objective, you are not dealing with a human. Now, they got into the [second] Bush administration and on 9/11 the Twin Towers went down. Former President George W. Bush and those devils, those Satans around him. They plotted 9/11. Aint no Muslim took control of that plane.

Hon. Minister Farrakhan | NOI.org

National Representative of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Nation of Islam The Nation of Islam under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the catalyst for the growth and development of Islam in America. Founded in 1930 by Master Fard Muhammad and led to prominence from 1934 to 1975 by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Nation of Islam continues to positively impact the quality of life in America. Minister Louis Farrakhan, born on May 11, 1933 in Bronx, N.Y., was reared in a highly disciplined and spiritual household in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Raised by his mother, a native of St. Kitts, Louis and his brother Alvan learned early the value of work, responsibility and intellectual development. Having a strong sensitivity to the plight of Black people, his mother engaged her sons in conversations about the struggle for freedom, justice and equality. She also exposed them to progressive material such as the Crisis magazine, published by the NAACP. Popularly known as The Charmer, he achieved fame in Boston as a vocalist, calypso singer, dancer and violinist. In February 1955, while visiting Chicago for a musical engagement, he was invited to attend the Nation of Islams Saviours Day convention. Although music had been his first love, within one month after joining the Nation of Islam in 1955, Minister Malcolm X told the New York Mosque and the new convert Louis X that Elijah Muhammad had said that all Muslims would have to get out of show business or get out of the Temple. Most of the musicians left Temple No. 7, but Louis X, later renamed Louis Farrakhan, chose to dedicate his life to the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. The departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1975 and the assumption of leadership by Imam W. Deen Mohammed brought drastic changes to the Nation of Islam. After approximately three years of wrestling with these changes, and a re-appraisal of the condition of Black people and the value of the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Minister Farrakhan decided to return to the teachings and program with a proven ability to uplift and reform Blacks. His tremendous success is evidenced by mosques and study groups in over 120 cities in America, Europe, the Caribbean and missions in West Africa and South Africa devoted to the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. In rebuilding the Nation of Islam, Minister Farrakhan has renewed respect for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, his Teachings and Program. At 80 years of age, Minister Farrakhan still maintains a grueling work schedule. He has been welcomed in a countless number of churches, sharing pulpits with Christian ministers from a variety of denominations, which has demonstrated the power of the unity of those who believe in the One God. He has addressed diverse organizations, been received in many Muslim countries as a leading Muslim thinker and teacher, and been welcomed throughout Africa, the Caribbean and Asia as a champion in the struggle for freedom, justice and equality. In 1979, he founded The Final Call, an internationally circulated newspaper that follows in the line of The Muhammad Speaks. In 1985, Minister Farrakhan introduced the POWER concept. In 1988, the resurgent Nation of Islam repurchased its former flagship mosque in Chicago and dedicated it as Mosque Maryam, the National Center for the Re-training and Re-education of the Black Man and Woman of America and the World. In 1991, Minister Farrakhan reintroduced the Three Year Economic Program, first established by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to build an economic base for the development of Blacks through business ventures. In 1993, Minister Farrakhan penned the book, A Torchlight for America, which applied the guiding principles of justice and good will to the problems perplexing America. In May of that year, he traveled to Libreville, Gabon to attend the Second African-African American Summit where he addressed African heads of state and delegates from America. In October of 1994, Minister Farrakhan led 2,000 Blacks from America to Accra, Ghana for the Nation of Islams first International Saviours Day. Ghanaian President Jerry Rawlings officially opened and closed the five-day convention. The popular leader and the Nation of Islam repurchased farmland in Dawson, Georgia and enjoyed a banner year in 1995 with the successful Million Man March on the Mall in Washington, D.C., which drew nearly two million men. Minister Farrakhan was inspired to call the March out of his concern over the negative image of Black men perpetuated by the media and movie industries, which focused on drugs and gang violence. The Million Man March established October 16 as a Holy Day of Atonement, Reconciliation and Responsibility. Minister Farrakhan took this healing message of atonement throughout the world during three World Friendship Tours over the next three years. His desire was to bring solutions to such problems as war, poverty, discrimination and the right to education. Minister Farrakhan would return to the Mall on Washington, D.C. in 2000 convening the Million Family March, where he called the full spectrum of members of the human family to unite according to the principle of atonement. Minister Farrakhan performed thousands of weddings, as well as renewed the vows of those recommitting themselves in a Marriage Ceremony. As part of the major thrust for true political empowerment for the Black community, Minister Farrakhan re-registered to vote in June 1996 and formed a coalition of religious, civic and political organizations to represent the voice of the disenfranchised on the political landscape. His efforts and the overwhelming response to the call of the Million Man March resulted in an additional 1.7 million Black men voting in the 1996 presidential elections. In July 1997, the Nation of Islam, in conjunction with the World Islamic Peoples Leadership, hosted an International Islamic Conference in Chicago. A broad range of Muslim scholars from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, along with Christian, Jewish and Native American spiritual leaders participated in the conference. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, Minister Farrakhan was among the international religious voices that called for peace and resolution of conflict. He also wrote two personal letters to President George Bush offering his counsel and perspective on how to respond to the national crisis. He advised President Bush to convene spiritual leaders of various faiths for counsel. Prior to the war on Iraq, Minister Farrakhan led a delegation of religious leaders and physicians to the Middle East in an effort to spark the dialogue among nations that could prevent war. Marking a new milestone in a life that has been devoted to the uplift of humanity, Minister Farrakhan launched a prostate cancer foundation in his name May 10-11, 2003. First diagnosed in 1991 with prostate cancer, he survived a public bout and endured critical complications after treatment that brought him 180 seconds away from death. In July of that year, Minister Farrakhan accepted the request to host the first of a series of summits centered on the principles of reparations. Nearly 50 activists from across the country answered his call to discuss operational unity within the reparations movement for Black peoples suffering in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Culminating the Nation of Islams Saviours Day convention in February 2004, Minister Farrakhan delivered an international address entitled, Reparations: What does America and Europe Owe? What does Allah (God) promise? stepping further into the vanguard position of leadership calling for justice for the suffering masses of Black people and all oppressed people throughout the world. On May 3, 2004, Minister Farrakhan held an international press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. themed, Guidance to America and the World in a Time of Trouble. The press conference sought to expose the plans and schemes of President George W. Bush and his neo-conservative advisors who plunged American soldiers into worldwide conflict with the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. This international press conference was translated into Arabic, French and Spanish. In October 2005, after months of a demanding schedule traveling throughout the U.S., Minister Farrakhan called those interested in establishing a programmatic thrust for Black people in America and oppressed people across the globe to participate in the Millions More Movement, which convened back at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on the 10th Anniversary of the Historic Million Man March. The Millions More Movement involved the formation of 9 Ministries that would deal with the pressing needs of our people. Also in 2005, Minister Louis Farrakhan was voted as BET.coms Person of The Year as the person users believed made the most powerful impact on the Black community over the past year. In April 2006, Minister Farrakhan led a delegation to Cuba to view the emergency preparedness system of the Cuban people, in the wake of the massive failure to prevent the loss of human life after Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. In January 2007, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan underwent a major 14-hour pelvic exoneration. In just a few weeks, and as a testament to the healing power of God, Minister Farrakhan stood on stage at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on February 25, 2007 to deliver the first of several speeches that year with the theme One Nation Under God. On October 19, 2008, after nearly a year of extensive repairs and restoration, Minister Farrakhan opened the doors and grounds of Mosque Maryam to thousands of people representing all creeds and colors during a much anticipated Rededication Ceremony themed A New Beginning. This day also served as the commemoration of the 13th Anniversary of the Historic Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement. The prayers of spiritual leaders representing the three Abrahamic faithsJudaism, Christianity and Islamwere offered to bless this momentous affair. Those who were present that day, and who watched live via internet webcast throughout the world, witnessed Minister Farrakhans message of unity and peace for the establishment of a universal government of peace for all of humanity.

Louis Farrakhan: If the Federal Govt Does Not Intercede …

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called late last month for black Americans to rise up and kill those who kill us if the federal government fails to intercede in our affairs. The call for violence came during a July 30 speech the radical leader delivered at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami. The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain, Farrakhan said. So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling, he added. Video of the excerpt was posted onFarrakhans Facebook page Monday with the hashtag #JusticeOrElse. Farrakhan is scheduled to speak next month in Washington, D.C., during a demonstration organized in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of his 1995 million man march.

Louis Farrakhan – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Louis Farrakhan, Sr. (born Louis Eugene Wolcott; May 11, 1933, and formerly known as LouisX) is the leader of the religious group Nation of Islam (NOI). He served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, and was appointed by the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Muhammad, as the National Representative of the Nation of Islam. After Warith Deen Muhammad disbanded the NOI and started the orthodox Islamic group American Society of Muslims, Farrakhan started rebuilding the NOI. In 1981 he revived the name Nation of Islam for his organization, previously known as Final Call, regaining many of the Nation of Islam’s National properties including the NOI National Headquarters Mosque Maryam, reopening over 130 NOI mosques in America and the world. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Farrakhan as antisemitic and a proponent of an anti-white theology.[1] Farrakhan himself, however, disputes this view of his ideology.[2] Farrakhan is a black religious and social leader. Farrakhan has been both praised and widely criticized for his often controversial political views and outspoken rhetorical style. He has been criticized for remarks that have been perceived as antisemitic, anti-white and prejudiced against gays.[1] In October 1995, he organized and led the Million Man March in Washington, D.C., calling on black men to renew their commitments to their families and communities. Farrakhan, due to health issues, reduced his responsibilities with the NOI in 2007.[3] In recent years, however, Farrakhan has been very active, including delivering weekly online sermons throughout 2013[4] as well as speaking at both large public NOI events as well as smaller venues.[5] Since 2010, Farrakhan has advocated L Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics and the use of its “auditing” technique despite not being a Scientologist. Farrakhan was born Louis Eugene Wolcott (also mistakenly spelled Walcott)[6] in The Bronx, New York, the younger of two sons of Sarah Mae Manning (January 16, 1900 November 18, 1988) and Percival Clark, immigrants from the Caribbean islands. His mother was born in Saint Kitts and Nevis. His father was a Jamaican native. The couple split before Louis was born. Farrakhan says he never knew his biological father. His mother then moved in with Louis Wolcott from Barbados, who became his stepfather.[7] After Louis’ stepfather died in 1936, the Wolcott family moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where they settled in the West Indian neighborhood of the Roxbury area.[7] Starting at the age of six, Wolcott received rigorous training in the violin.[6] He received his first violin at the age of six, and by the time he was 13 years old he had played with the Boston College Orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony.[7] A year later, he went on to win national competitions. In 1946, he was one of the first black performers to appear on the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour,[6] where he also won an award. He and his family were active members of the Episcopal St. Cyprian’s Church in Roxbury, Massachusetts.[7] Wolcott attended the prestigious Boston Latin School, and later the English High School, from which he graduated.[8] He completed three years at Winston-Salem Teachers College, where he had a track scholarship.[9] Wolcott married Betsy Ross while he was in college. (She later took the name Khadijah Farrakhan.) She lived in Boston,[when?] and was pregnant with their child. Due to complications from the pregnancy, Wolcott dropped out after completing his junior year of college to devote time to her and their child. They are still married.[citation needed] In the 1950s, Wolcott started his professional music career by recording several calypso albums as a singer under the name “The Charmer”. He also performed on tour. In February 1955, using part of his middle name, Eugene, “Calypso Gene” was headlining a show in Chicago, Illinois, entitled “Calypso Follies.” One of his songs was on the top 100 Billboard Chart for five years in a row. There he first came in contact with the teachings of the Nation of Islam (NOI) through Rodney Smith, a friend and saxophonist from Boston. Wolcott and his wife Betsy were invited to the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day address by Elijah Muhammad. Prior to going to Saviours’ Day, due to then-Minister MalcolmX’s popularity in the media, Wolcott had never heard of Elijah Muhammad, and like many outside of the Nation of Islam, he thought that MalcolmX was the leader of the Nation of Islam.[citation needed] In 1955, Wolcott fulfilled the requirements to be a registered Muslim/registered believer/registered laborer. He memorized and recited verbatim the 10 questions and answers of the NOI’s Student Enrollment. He then wrote a Saviour’s Letter that must be sent to the NOI’s headquarters in Chicago. The Saviour’s Letter must be copied verbatim, and have the identical handwriting of the Nation of Islam’s founder, Wallace Fard Muhammad. After having the Saviour’s Letter reviewed, and approved by the NOI’s headquarters in Chicago in July 1955, Wolcott received a letter of approval from the Nation of Islam acknowledging his official membership as a registered Muslim/registered believer/registered laborer in the NOI. As a result, he received his “X.” The “X” was considered a placeholder, used to indicate that Nation of Islam members original African family names had been lost. They acknowledged that European surnames were slave names, assigned by the slaveowners to mark their ownership. Members of the NOI used the “X” while waiting for their Islamic names, which some NOI members received later in their conversion.[10] Hence, Louis Wolcott became LouisX. Elijah Muhammad then replaced his “X” with the “holy name” Farrakhan, an Arabic name meaning “The Criterion”. The summer after Louis’ conversion, Elijah Muhammad stated that all musicians in the NOI had to choose between music and the Nation of Islam.[6] LouisX did so only after performing one final event at the Nevel Country Club.[citation needed]
