In the darkest days of the Black Holocaust even the British slave trader Sir John Hawkins limited the number of crew members he would bring on trans-Atlantic voyages because of the spread of diseases that infected the captives. The flux caused severe diarrhea accompanied by intense fever, and it killed one of every three Africans chained in the crowded holds of slave ships. Many unfortunate others arrived on the shores of the West Indies in excruciating pain, in the throes of death.
For the vast number of Blacks this is the moment where the historical Black–Jewish relationship begins in the Western Hemisphere. They emerged from these horrifying vessels and found Jewish merchants waiting with cash to buy up the weak and sickly among the survivors for a reduced bargain price. They then fattened them up and sold them on auction blocks at a hefty profit. This was considered a “specialty” of Jewish merchants.
Blacks look at that history as an act of pure wickedness. Jews look at that same history and say, “We nursed you people to health!”
And that, in a nutshell, is the nature of the relationship between Blacks and Jews today. For decades they have insisted that they have been our “best friends” because they “helped in the civil rights movement.” Malcolm X used another analogy that perfectly suits the Black–Jewish reality: “If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches, there’s no progress. If you pull it all the way out that’s not progress. Progress is healing the wound that the blow made. And they haven’t even pulled the knife out, much less healed the wound. They won’t even admit the knife is there.”
With that in mind we review the Jewish media’s latest article titled “Is Jewish Control Over the Slave Trade a Nation of Islam Lie or Scholarly Truth?” posted by “Tablet,” an online Jewish magazine. The very first thing anyone must notice is the commanding photo of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan giving a lecture while holding up a copy of The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, VOLUME TWO.
And ALL TRUTH stops right there!
Despite what that photo suggests, not a single word of the deceitful article deals with any of Volume Two’s 512 pages at all. Nor does the article address the 144-page NOI book Jews Selling Blacks, which contains hundreds of Jewish slave-sale advertisements placed by prominent American Jews making wholesale transactions in the trade of Black human beings: Jews buying and selling whole plantations, slaves and all. Jewish banks arranged financing, with some Jews offering their customers the option to buy Black human beings ON LAYAWAY!
The mythology that Jews had no role in the slave trade has been destroyed forever. The rest of the article by sophist Batya Ungar-Sargon is a mess of warmed-over, retread, recycled arguments, some as much as 22 years old, and all of its specious assertions are focused entirely on the unassailably accurate book The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One. So why would Jews wait 22 years only to regurgitate their failed arguments of yesteryear?
It is because of the sting of the charge made by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in his 2010 Letter To ADL’s Abraham Foxman: “Armed with this knowledge from the pens of Jewish scholars, Rabbis, and historians, we could now charge you with the most vehement anti-Black behavior in the annals of our history in America and the world. We could charge you with being the most deceitful so-called friend, while your history with us shows you have been our worst enemy.”
Had Tablet Magazine actually examined the second volume of The Secret Relationship, the news would have been far worse. That book, released by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in 2010 along with that letter, exposed the Jews as being the primary beneficiaries and advocates of the slave-based cotton trade, enthusiastic promoters of the Jim Crow system of American apartheid, and even members and financiers of the terrorist Ku Klux Klan.
When the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan responded to their ignorant charges of “anti-Semitism” by publishing this groundbreaking research, Jews first denied it, then attacked it, and next sent out their negro imps to bluster against it. Under Jewish pressure the books were banned by Canadian customs officials. NOI research offices received threatening phone calls from the Jewish Defense Organization promising violence against NOI members. All Barnes & Noble bookstores were forced to stop selling The Secret Relationship.
When the late great scholar Prof. Tony Martin of Wellesley College lectured on The Secret Relationship in Toronto, Canadian government officials raided the TV station and seized the tape of the lecture. There were several reports of Jews walking into Black bookstores and demanding that they remove the NOI books.
But Truth has won out and the deep involvement of Jews—the so-called Chosen People— in the Black Holocaust is now a matter of settled FACT. While they were desperately trying to keep The Secret Relationship away from Black minds, over a hundred academic libraries around the world were quietly purchasing the book for their collections. Such prestigious institutions as Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Brandeis, Yeshiva University, the Jewish Theological Seminary, Brown University, Stanford University, even Cambridge University in London, England, and others in Germany and New Zealand all have the NOI book on their shelves. Its presence at all of the Ivy League libraries is proof that they consider The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews a substantial and scholarly work, but most of these libraries have restricted access to it.
One major university has it but it is in a special locked section called “the Cage,” where one needs special permission to view it. Libraries that have made the book available on their shelves often report that the copies are “missing” or have been damaged, or have had pages removed.
Such is the mighty effort that has been made to keep Black people from learning exactly what Jesus meant when he spoke of “those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.” (Rev 2:9, 3:9)
Batya Ungar-Sargon’s Tablet article is simply another stratagem to warn readers away from that which the Ivy League librarians already know. The power of The Secret Relationship is NOT what Min. Farrakhan or any “Black Muslim” says—it is what the Jewish scholars say about their own people’s slave trading and slave dealing, which are now catalogued in 1,000 pages of documentation for all to see and study. The question is no longer about “Farrakhan,” but about why Jews utterly disrespect the work of their own scholars and rabbis. According to Wiesenthal Center scholar Dr. Harold Brackman, during the 1600s “slave trading in Brazil became a ‘Jewish’ mercantile specialty in much the same way it had been in early medieval Europe.” In fact, wrote Jewish scholar Jonathan Schorsch (who is quoted in the Tablet article), “Jewish merchants routinely possessed enormous numbers of slaves temporarily before selling them off.” The Jewish Encyclopedia adds that “Jewish commercial activity” in this time included a “monopoly of the slave trade.” Rabbi Marc Lee Raphael wrote that in the West Indies, “Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade.”
Raphael was the top historian at the American Jewish Historical Society when he wrote this of the slave trade: “in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.”
Despite their eminence in academia, the Tablet article dodges these Jewish scholars’ testimonies. But even when the Tablet thinks it has found a prominent critic to quote, like Yale University’s David Brion Davis, he unwittingly reinforces the facts unearthed by the Nation of Islam: “Of course, some Jews were involved in the slave trade. Every European Western nation was….The Dutch Jews weren’t persecuted, so there were quite a few who were involved.” It is a frightening admission by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Prof. Davis that only the “persecution” of the Jews—not their own moral teachings based in ancient Mosaic Law—kept more Jews from dealing in Black human beings. It is that same Satanic mentality that calculates cash profits at the sight of a sickly, dying African.
It is well past the time for Blacks to heed the advice of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and, through careful study, build a new knowledge and understanding of our history—and reassess who are our friends and who are our enemies.
