“I HAVE BEEN VINDICATED!” Min. Farrakhan discusses Black/Jewish relations

The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume 1:
The Jewish Role in the Enslavement of the African

“I HAVE BEEN VINDICATED!”

The Honorable Louis Farrakhan discusses Black/Jewish relations

The Final Call, May 4, 1992.

EDITOR’S NOTE: For seven long years, since he came to the defense of Rev. Jesse L. Jackson during Rev. Jackson’s 1984 presidential campaign, the Honorable Louis Farrakhan has been a target of attacks by members of the Jewish community and unjustly branded as an “anti-Semite.” Minister Farrakhan granted this interview to respond to those attacks in light of the recently published book The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, a research project by the Nation of Islam which documents Jewish scholars testifying to their own crimes against Black people and validating many of the truths that Minister Farrakhan spoke publicly.


 

FC: You’ve said you’ve been vindicated by the publication of the book The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews. Please explain what you mean. 

MLF: Since 1984, I’ve been charged by members of the Jewish community with being an anti-Semite or, to be more specific, anti-Jewish. I have taken offense at that bigoted statement, for it appears that anyone who is critical of Jewish, or Israel’s, behavior is labeled an anti-Semite.

This is done to frighten the person or persons who are critical of Jews or Israel into silence. But Jews have the freedom to write or say what they please about anyone or anything. In the last several years, especially, people dare not speak out against any outrage done by Jews.

I am vindicated in that some of our brothers in the Nation of Islam saw how I was being treated by Jewish members of the press, the media in general, Jewish leaders of organizations, rabbis and teachers. Our brothers did the research and came up with evidence from highly respected Jewish scholars and rabbis that proves that Jews were involved in bringing our fathers into this shameful and wretched condition. Jews were involved in owning the ships and plantations, the sale and misuse of our people and women, the destruction of our minds; and they were involved in keeping us in the sad state in which some of their fathers put us. Jews, therefore, were opposed to and worked against every Black leader that came truly for our liberation. And, as it was in time past, so it is today.

So, my comments and statements were not anti-Semitic. They were the truth about Jewish involvement in our enslavement and in keeping us in the wretched condition that we find ourselves in today. That’s why we say that we are vindicated.

 FC: Why is it important to point out the involvement of Jews in our enslavement and our condition today? 

MLF: Jewish writers and scholars have pointed out to us and the world the involvement of Arabs, Africans and other Europeans in our enslavement, but there has been a deliberate effort to hide the hand of the Jews and their involvement. Our enslavement greatly increased the wealth of the Jewish community in the New World. We published this book, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, not out of hatred, but out of a concern that our people know the truth and that Jews, particularly the Jewish youth, know the truth; so that an old relationship that is not beneficial to us might possibly be changed into a relationship that is more equitable, fair and just.

 FC: You speak about an old relationship that has not been beneficial to us. Can you define what the Black/Jewish relationship has been in the past and what it is today? 

MLF: In my judgment, the old Black/Jewish relationship has been that of a master and slave. We have always gone to members of the Jewish community with our hat in our hand looking to them for substance.

Jews helped found most civil rights organizations. It is interesting to note that none of these organizations founded by Jews, or aided in its founding by Jews, dealt with the economic problems of Black people. The NAACP, the Urban League and others were steered away from economics and dealt mainly with social problems, vis-à-vis, breaking down social barriers.

Therefore, Jews fought alongside Blacks to break down barriers for Blacks, but we, in a weak economic position, were not able to take advantage of the breaking down of those barriers. But the Jews were able to do so.

In effect, they were our allies, but we were the vanguard of breaking down the barriers and they (Jews), women, gays and lesbians were able to take advantage of the breaking down of these barriers while Blacks, economically and socially, have gone backwards. Since the passing of the Voting Rights Bill and the Public Accommodations Bill, Black people have noticed a serious decline in the financial support of Jews supporting Black organizations.

 Then came the Bakke decision and other decisions which clearly flew in the face of laws that Black folk felt were progressive for us. That which Jews called quotas, we called righting the wrongs or opening a door to areas such as medical schools that we were not privileged to have access to in sufficient numbers.

 So, Blacks and Jews were at odds during this period of time and, of course, in 1983 when Rev. Jackson decided to seek the nomination of the Democratic party for the presidency of the United States and we aligned ourselves with him, then the great pain in Back/Jewish relationships fully manifested.

 In fact, if we go back to before 1983 and observe what happened with Andrew Young when he was the UN ambassador and he visited the PLO representative, the Jews saw to it that Andrew Young was pushed out of office and this angered Back people.

 Then, with the Rev. Jackson’s political thrust, we came fully into the picture. The Back-Jewish relationship at that point had soured and was steadily souring. With my emergence and speaking the way I spoke, Jewish leaders put pressure on Back leaders to denounce me and this made us painfully aware of how much control leaders of the Jewish community have over the spokespersons of Black people: preachers, politicians, educators, doctors, lawyers, businesspersons, artists, and our athletes and entertainers.

So, any person who could be an effective spokesperson for our hurt had to tie into the agenda of the Jewish community or they would be effectively silenced.

 FC: How should leaders of the Jewish community respond to the writings in this book? 

MLF: If Jews are aware of how they profited, and still do, from our wretched condition, and if they are aware of what some of their fathers did to bring us into this condition, then a Jew that has some conscience or a real disposition toward fairness and justice might be moved to aid in the redressing of this grievance. However, what will be the response of the Jewish community? If they follow their pattern historically, they will be even more incensed and work even harder for the destruction of the leadership of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

 FC: What about those who would say, “The enslavement of Black people was done by my forefathers and that has nothing to do with how we feel today”? 

MLF: I could agree with that if the present generation of Jewish leaders were not so hostile to those Black leaders whom they do not control. The present generation of Jewish leadership is fighting the liberation movement of Black people tooth and nail. The present generation of Jews control the wealth of musical, artistic and sports talent in the Black community.

 Jews control the medical associations, the bar associations, the Psychiatric [sic] associations, and all of the major educational and scientific associations. Blacks who are trying desperately in these associations to move up, find they are fighting Jews at the top. And unless they submit totally, they are in serious trouble within these associations.

 So, the present-day Jews have benefited from what their fathers did to our fathers to put us in the mental and psychological condition that we are in, and their writers, teachers, scholars and movie producers, businesspersons and script writers work to keep us in the psychological and mental condition of subservience. I can’t say that this generation has shown that they are any better than their fathers. However, I believe if the younger Jews knew the truth, they might do better.

 FC: During the period of slavery there was a lot of savage treatment of Black people…

MLF: I think that that’s a true statement. …. [Jews] were a part of the  mechanism that brought us into slavery, they share in the guilt of the savage mistreatment of us… If you read what they have written, for example, Jewish slave owners degraded our women and were not slack in the sexual mistreatment of our females. How much more brutal can you get? If you don’t whip me with a lash, but you take our women and daughters and abuse them, that’s abuse….

 Many of the Southern Jews would rather have seen slavery maintained than abolished. They fought against the abolitionists. They fought for slavery, because slavery maintained their position of economic strength and power, particularly on the East Coast and in the South. Many Jews today will fight the liberation movement of Blacks for precisely the same reason, to maintain their position of wealth and power.

 FC: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was your teacher and of course he received some opposition from the Jewish community, but it didn’t seem to be as extensive as the opposition that has come against you or as vocal and violent. Why has this been the case? 

MLF: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad never mentioned Jews directly in his criticism of white people. He classified all whites as devils, regardless of their faith.

Many Jews opposed him, but they opposed him through the Black organizations and leaders over whom they held control and influence. Jews at that time did not have to come out themselves and attack the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, nor did he attack them.

Now most of those organizations don’t have the power that they once had, nor do the leaders of these organizations have the same degree of the power over the masses that their predecessors once had. Plus, Black leaders are more enlightened today than were their predecessors.

I am different in that I defended Rev. Jackson in what he said and then got into a direct confrontation with members of the Jewish community. They see me as more of a threat to them specifically than they did the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

 FC: Has the focus in recent years on the Black/Jewish relationship benefited our people? 

MLF: We helped to make manifest something that Blacks in leadership have known all along: that practically all of our leadership has been and is today controlled by members of the Jewish community. This is not good for us as a people.

The fact that some Jewish leaders and politicians were not able to get Black leaders to condemn or repudiate me in the manner they decided frightened those Jews, causing them to charge that the Black community gradually was being filled with the spirit of anti-Semitism. However, as you read the history of Black-Jewish relationships, you can’t find Black people painting swastikas on synagogues or defiling the religious houses of Jews in any manner. You can’t find us attacking Jews or boycotting Jewish stores and trying to do things to hurt the Jewish community. You just can’t find that in our history. But Volume 1, 2 and 3 of our research will show that we have more right to paint Jews as anti-Black than they have to paint any of us as anti-Semitic or anti-Jewish. We have overwhelming proof that they have worked against the best interest of Black people, while they have no proof at all that we have worked or are working to deter their legitimate progress in any way.

 FC: The term “anti-Semitic” has been used to paint a broad stroke over anyone who speaks contrary to what Jews would like for them to speak. Can you define for us what you think the term “anti-Semitic” really means and how does it differ from the way Jews use the term? 

MLF: The term as it is used now is bigoted, because the Jews are acting as though they are the only Semitic people. If the Arabs are Semites, and they are, and we have friendly relations with the Arabs then wouldn’t it be proper to say that we are anti-Jewish rather than anti-Semitic?

The term is conveniently used by members of the Jewish community to stop criticism, as I said earlier, and it changes in its definition as the need arises. Many of those who are referred to as Jews are not Semitic people at all; they are Europeans.

 FC: Where does the current situation then leave Blacks who also claim to be Jews? 

MLF: Most Blacks who are Jews with whom I come into contact feel the suffering of their people and they feel the racism directed against them by their brethren in faith who are Caucasians. We feel the same thing as Muslims.

There are some of our Arab brothers who just don’t have good feelings for Black people and there are some of our Indian brothers who are Muslims who don’t necessarily like Black people and vice-versa. So, we have this racism in Islam, Christianity, and in Judaism. It is an ugly thing that has to be uprooted today in all religions in order for us to relate to each other as brothers.

 FC: In your lectures, you have dealt with the question of Jews being the chosen people. Who are the chosen people? And if those who claim to be the chosen people are not the chosen ones, then why are they making such claims? 

MLF: A man may choose a wife and if that relationship does not work out, he may divorce that wife and choose another. God chooses people to serve as instruments of His Will. Maybe in this way, the Jews were chosen. However, when you are chosen you have a responsibility. If you do not carry out your responsibility, God doesn’t keep his choice there. He takes His choice somewhere else. It seems as though all of those who have been chosen to carry the light of God to those who walk in darkness have in some way failed.

 The Jews have not shared the light of God that they received freely with the Gentiles. So, God raises up others. Here you have a Christian population, and I am speaking mainly of Caucasians, who have spread the gospel all over the earth, but with what intention in mind?

 So the cross, or Christianity, has been used as an instrument of white supremacy. They have spread the gospel, but not for the Kingdom of God; more for the maintenance of the kingdom of white supremacy.

 The Arabs came into the light of Allah and the Qur’an and spread Islam to the known world at that time, but they became corrupt and began to lose their power and a new hemisphere was discovered and now it is populated with over a half a billion people or more who have never heard the message of Muhammad and have a version of the message of Moses, Jesus and the Prophets that contains truth, but it is not altogether true.

As a result, the Western hemisphere has grown up as a bastion of white supremacy and racism that has seen the darker people, or the original inhabitants of this hemisphere, just about destroyed.

So, now God takes His choice from a people that were no people at all. They were rejected and despised according to the Scripture. The Scripture says that they would be a foolish people, but God would choose them and make them His people and He would be their God. He refers to them in the Scriptures of the Bible as “the lost sheep.”

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), said that the sun of Islam would rise from the West in the latter days and we know that Prophet Muhammad was born in Arabia, not in the West, but yet Muhammad, in the Qur’an, was called a “light-giving sun.”

That means there would be a Muhammad coming up out of the West from among a people who were no people, foolish, despised and rejected, and God would choose them for His glory.

 We believe that that people are the Black people of the Western hemisphere and specifically the Black people in the United States of America. We have been chosen by God, not to walk around with our chest puffed out in arrogance and vanity, but chosen out of our suffering and affliction that we, in whose hearts is a love for God and humanity, might do a service to the totality of the human family after a service is done by God for us.

This is why Jesus’ first mission was to the lost sheep and then he told his disciples to, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel.” I believe that that good news is among us today and that good news will have to be preached by us after our hearts are purified of the rancor and bitterness that comes from our sojourn in slavery and our evil mistreatment.

We must now come up out of that and recognize that that was our furnace of affliction to purify us for God’s ultimate service.

 FC: Do you fear any retribution for your position with regard to Black/Jewish relations? 

MLF: The Jews refer to me as Hitler, and any Jew who knows what Hitler did to members of the Jewish community would believe that I had that same thought in mind for them because I am critical of them. Any Jew who would feel that I am a new Hitler would want death for me.

I am not only hated by Jews, but what does Mr. Bush and the government and its powers think of me? What does the Arab world, the leadership in particular, think of me because I believe in Elijah Muhammad and in Master Fard Muhammad as the great Mahdi? There is a whole camp of hatred against me.

The scriptures refer to our people, and most all human beings, as lost sheep, easily led in the wrong direction but hard to lead in the right direction. The wickedly wise are not good leaders of the sheep, they are evil misleaders of the sheep and this is why Jesus is referred to in the scripture as the “Good Shepherd.” He leads the sheep in a direction that is beneficial to the sheep and out of harm’s way.

I can definitely say I am in the valley of the shadow of death and if God is not with me I am finished. But He, Allah (God), has prepared a table for me in the midst of my enemies. My cup runneth over and He (God) anoints my head with wisdom until my cup runs over. I don’t fear that evil will come to me. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I plan to dwell in the house of the Lord. 

 FC: Is the relationship between the United States and Israel detrimental to the United States? 

MLF: I would say that any lobby that effectively sways the representatives of the people against the will of the people is robbing the people of true representation and is robbing the people of democracy.

In that case, these lobbies are detrimental to the democratic process and any person who uses their monies and organizational strength to punish those whose views are different from theirs, even though that leader’s views may be representative of his own people, those kinds of persons are detrimental to that group and are ultimately detrimental to America. My personal feeling is that the way the Senate and Congress responds to the needs of Israel and the way Congress fails to respond to the needs of the American people shows that the strength of the Jewish lobby is detrimental to the good and well-being of the citizenry of the United States.

 FC: Are there any closing comments? 

MLF: This book, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, is being sent to Jewish leaders, to Black leaders and Black politicians for an honest comment in hopes that a proper dialogue will begin based on truth.

What I am in favor of creating through this writing is an honest dialogue where a new relationship, if any is to be formed, can be formed based on equity, justice and fairness; a relationship that’s mutually beneficial and profitable to both Jews and Blacks.

 For members of the Jewish community to say that this book is slander when it came from their own pens shows the lengths to which members of the Jewish community will go to hide the truth.

The truth will come forward as both the Scriptures of the Bible and Qur’an teach. The Bible teaches that nothing that is done in the dark will remain there, it will be brought out into the light.

 The Qur’an says, “Though it be the weight of an atom hidden in a rock and the rock buried in the earth, yet will Allah bring it forth.”

This is the day when all of our defects will be manifested and you will find nations kneeling down before the record of their deeds and we have to bow down before the book of our deeds as well. The Jews, Arabs, Africans and America as a nation will have to kneel down before the record of their deeds, for we are living in the Day of Judgment and justice.

So, those whose deeds of good are light and their deeds of evil are heavy, it is they who should tremble today in the presence of God. But those whose attempts are to do good and yet have evil in their lives, if our good outweighs our evil then God promises that He will admit us into His mercy, and hopefully, we will be able to see the hereafter.

 FC: Thank you, Minister Farrakhan.

Jewish Attack on Marc Lamont Hill Exposes Israel’s Targeting of Black Youth

Jewish History of Repression of Black Leaders over Palestine is a Long One

The recent Jewish attack on one of our greatest scholars, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill of Temple University, provides almost perfect proof of the intellectual battery against Black leadership that is the pernicious reality they call “Black–Jewish relations.” Dr. Hill elucidated for a United Nations forum the plight of the Palestinian people in the most clear and direct terms. In fact, anyone who heard Bro. Dr. Hill’s 20-minute exegesis would be impressed that he was the very epitome of the Holy Quran’s clear guidance in Sura 16:125: “Call to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in the best manner.”

With both passion and precision, Dr. Hill relayed a most distressing indictment of the Israeli occupation:

For Gazans, the eleven-year Israeli and Egyptian blockade by land, air, and sea has created the largest open-air prison in the world. With only four percent potable water, electricity access that is limited to four hours per day, fifty percent unemployment, and the looming threat of Israeli bombs, Gaza continues to constitute one of the most pressing humanitarian crises of the current moment…. As an American, I am embarrassed that my tax dollars contribute to this reality.

Dr. Hill continued to make a compelling case for the world’s attention to the matter, but it is when he connected the Palestinian struggle to that of the Black youth of the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) that Jews determined he must be put down. In August of 2016 BLM published its official platform, which declared Israel to be “an apartheid state with over 50 laws on the books that sanction discrimination against the Palestinian people.” It charges the Israeli government with “genocide” against the Palestinian people, and endorses the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. It is a very strong document that does not suffer the milquetoast mindset of the negroes in political leadership.

Within a few weeks, two Israeli officials attending a conference of the powerful lobbying group Israel American Council (IAC) were secretly filmed revealing Israel’s anger over Black youth in America. To a room “packed with Israeli diplomats,” Judith Varnai Shorer, the Israeli consul general in Atlanta, Georgia, said this:

“The major problem with Israel is with the young generation of the black community — Black Lives Matter starts there…”

 

The San Francisco consul for Israel, Andy David, followed that remarkable proclamation by revealing that he had personally recruited a former acquaintance of Martin Luther King Jr. as an Israeli asset. “Because of that relationship,” said David, “he published three articles in the Huffington Post explaining why their [BLM’s] agenda was hijacked.” Watch the entire film here.

So, when Dr. Hill connected Michael Brown’s murder by police in Ferguson, Missouri—the 2014 incident that initiated Black Lives Matter—with the Palestinian lives martyred, it directly sabotaged the clandestine plans the Israelis had developed for “the young generation of the black community” in America. Dr. Hill said:

One motivation for my hope in the liberation and ultimate self-determination of the Palestinian people comes in August of 2014. Black Americans were in Ferguson, Missouri, in the Midwest of the United States protesting the death of a young man named Michael Brown, an unarmed African American male who had been killed by a law enforcement agent. And as we protested, I saw two things that provided hope for the Palestinian struggle. One was that for the first time in my entire life of activism, I saw a sea of Palestinian people. I saw a sea of Palestinian flags in the crowd saying that we must form a solidarity project. We must struggle together in order to resist, because state violence in the United States and state violence in Brazil and state violence in Syria and state violence in Egypt and state violence in South Africa and state violence in Palestine are all of the same sort. And we finally understood that we must work together and not turn on each other but instead turn to each other.

But Hill went further:


And later that night, when the police began to tear-gas us, Mariam Barghouti tweeted us from Ramallah. She, along with other Palestinian youth activists, told us that the tear gas that we were experiencing was only temporary. They gave us tips for how to wash our eyes out. They told us how to make gas masks out of t-shirts. They gave us permission to think and dream beyond our local conditions by giving us a transnational or a global solidarity project. And from those tweets and social media messages, we began then to organize together. We brought a delegation of black activists to Palestine, and we saw the connections between the police in New York City, who are being trained by Israeli soldiers, and the type of policing we were experiencing in New York City. We began to see relationships of resistance, and we began to build and struggle and organize together. That spirit of solidarity—a solidarity that is bound up not just in ideology but in action—is the way out. So, as we stand here on the seventieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the tragic commemoration of the Nakba, we have an opportunity to not just offer solidarity in words but to commit to political action, grassroots action, local action, and international action that will give us what justice requires. And that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea. Thank you for your time.

The training of U.S. inner-city police departments in the brutal and dehumanizing anti-Palestinian tactics of the Israeli military is the ultimate plan for the violent subduing and mass incarceration of a rising Black America. In fact, it is Israel’s number 1 export to Black America. This operation has been the function of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, that gaggle of spies that has labeled every living Black man and woman “anti-Semitic.” According to its website, the ADL actually pays top “law enforcement executives” to travel to Israel “to learn how Israel’s police, intelligence, and security forces prevent terror attacks.” They now claim to have helped train “more than 90,000 law enforcement professionals.”

Israeli-trained Austin, TX, police subduing a “terrorist.”

Hearing Dr. Hill’s words at the United Nations—which directly identified the police in both nations as the arm of the oppressor—meant that Hill had to join Farrakhan near the top of the list of Black voices that at all costs must be silenced.

 

Jewish Attacks on Blacks Who Dare to Address Israel

The history of Jewish attempts at silencing Blacks is long indeed, and usually successful. We have previously exposed the Jewish role in the muzzling of W.E.B. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey. That was followed by the ADL’s 1942 infiltration of the Nation of Islam’s Chicago mosque that generated the unjustified arrests of 82 innocent Muslims. All of the forenamed had offended in some way the Jewish plan for their “negro property” in America.

But then, as The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad described, “America and England deposited their little brother, Israel, on foreign soil, Palestine, which is Arab land. They deprived the Arabs of their own land and sent them into exile.” It is called the Nakba, the Great Catastrophe of May 1948, and Blacks quickly found out that Jews would not accept ANY criticism for their wicked, gangster actions.

At that time the Black diplomat Ralph Bunche served at the United Nations to help address the 1948 catastrophe. He traveled to the Middle East as the chief aide to Sweden’s Count Folke Bernadotte, who had been appointed by the U.N. to mediate the conflict. But Bernadotte was murdered—not by “Arab terrorists” but by Jewish terrorists, led by the future Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Shamir. Most assuredly, Ralph Bunche got the message.

Rep. Ron Dellums found himself on the ADL’s list of spy targets.

Black California Congressman Ron Dellums had to devote four anguished pages of his autobiography to events surrounding a single vote in Congress in 1973 in which he intended to oppose further military aid to Israel:

Andrew Young is sworn in as United Nations ambassador on Jan. 31, 1977.

“The night before the vote, I talked to my family about what would occur the next day. I explained to my kids that I was going to cast a vote that would probably mean that we would be leaving Washington, D.C., to go back home to Berkeley, that voting against the arms aid bill would probably cause enough people to vote against my reelection that I would lose.”

There are no Jewish congresspersons, one can be assured, who are holding family meetings about career-ending votes or about the need to leave town because of their votes on funds for American inner cities or investment in Africa. For his Black intransigence Dellums found himself on the ADL’s list of spy targets.

In 1977, President Jimmy Carter appointed Martin Luther King protégé Andrew Young to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Just two years later, Jews mercilessly assailed Young after the Israeli Mossad bugged his meeting with a Palestinian Liberation Organization representative. He, like Ralph Bunche and Dr. Hill, was attempting to resolve the Middle East conflict and bring peace to the region. The Jews forced Pres. Jimmy Carter to punish Young, who left bitterly unrepentant: “I really don’t feel a bit sorry for anything that I have done.

One of many news articles covering the reaction of Black leaders to the firing of Andrew Young on Jewish demand.

Civil rights activist Julian Bond read a statement by 230 outraged Black leaders that included psychologist Kenneth Clark, Mayor Richard Hatcher (Gary, Ind.), Rev. Hosea Williams (SCLC-Atlanta), Rev. Joseph Lowery (SCLC), Rev. Benjamin Hooks (NAACP), Rev. Jesse Jackson (PUSH), and Vernon Jordan (NUL):

“[I]t is a fact that within the past 10 years some Jewish organizations and intellectuals who were previously identified with the aspirations of Black Americans…became apologists for the racial status quo…. Powerful organizations within the Jewish community opposed the interest of the Black community in the [affirmative action] cases up to the United States Supreme Court…”

Nathan Perlmutter, ADL national director

The ADL’s Nathan Perlmutter called the statement “half-truths, untruths, and anti-Semitic nonsense.” Blacks didn’t stop there. They got on a plane, flew to the Middle East for a 12-day tour, and met with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (the PLO!). They even awarded the “Martin Luther King Medal” to the hated Libyan freedom-fighter Muammar Gadhafi. Years later the former Pres. Carter wrote a book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, saying that Israel “perpetrates even worse instances of apartheid, than we witnessed even in South Africa.”

1983 “Jews Against Jackson” ad in the NY Times

In 1983, a group of hate-filled Jews calling themselves Jews Against Jackson launched a series of vicious attacks on Black presidential candidate Jesse L. Jackson. They placed an ad in the New York Times protesting Jackson’s stance on Palestinian rights. The ad said, “Ruin Jesse, Ruin,” in mockery of his campaign slogan “Run, Jesse, Run.” “JESSE JACKSON IS NO GOOD FOR JEWS, FOR ISRAEL OR FOR AMERICA. STOP HIM. RUIN JESSE, NOW.” Min. Louis Farrakhan got right to the root of the matter:

“Now, that nation called Israel never has had any peace in forty years and she will never have any peace because there can never be any peace structured on injustice, thievery, lying and deceit and using the name of God to shield your dirty religion under His holy and righteous name.”

The effects of that laser-guided epistle are still being felt. In 2002, anti-Apartheid fighter Bishop Desmond Tutu sounded very much like Dr. Hill in 2018:

Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa

“I’ve been very deeply distressed in my visit to the Holy Land; it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa. I have seen the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about….I have experienced Palestinians pointing to what were their homes, now occupied by Jewish Israelis.…Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the collective punishment, the home demolitions, in their own history so soon?”

Similarly, in 1990, a mere 16 days from his release from prison, Nelson Mandela met with PLO leader Yasser Arafat, saying: “I believe that there are many similarities between our struggle and that of the PLO.” He went on to say, “We live under a unique form of colonialism in South Africa, as well as in Israel.” He wrote that “Palestinians are not struggling for a ‘state’ but for freedom, liberation and equality, just like we were struggling for freedom in South Africa.”

Two of Black America’s greatest writers, Alice Walker and Toni Morrison, have both run afoul of the Jewish overseers. Walker considers Israel to be

“the greatest terrorist in that part of the world. And I think in general, the United States and Israel are great terrorist organizations themselves….When you terrorize people, when you make them so afraid of you that they are just mentally and psychologically wounded for life—that’s terrorism.”

Toni Morrison has identified Israel’s “long-term military, economic and geographic practice whose political aim is nothing less than the liquidation of the Palestinian nation,” and cited Israel’s “illegal military occupation of the West Bank and the systematic appropriation of its natural resources—most particularly that of water.”

One of the many Jewish characterizations of the first Black president.

The first Black president Barack Obama left office in 2016 pilloried with the Black Hitler label for not bowing deep enough to Jewish demands. When French President Nicolas Sarkozy said to him, “I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar,” Mr. Obama according to the UK Telegraph replied, “You may be sick of him, but me, I have to deal with him every day.”

Marc Lamont Hill should be thankful that CNN’s Jewish head Jeff Zucker dropped him—it only adds to Hill’s prestige and credibility. CNN’s role as a mouthpiece and cheerleader for U.S. militarism around the globe has long ago disqualified it as a serious news agency. By his bold United Nations stance Dr. Hill has become a worldwide recognized champion of human rights and a powerful voice for the unity of the oppressed. He has added himself to a mighty Black legacy of daring spokespeople aiding those caught under the feet of England, America, and “America’s little brother,” the demonic state of Israel. He has brought awareness of the Palestinian struggle to a whole new generation. And he is just getting started.

 

 


 

Starbucks Boycott Spreads After Anti-Defamation League Involvement

Starbucks seemed to be making all the right moves in response to the recent racial controversy in which the bigotry of its Philadelphia store manager instigated the arrest of two Black male customers waiting to meet a business colleague. The white man showed up just as they were being handcuffed and placed under arrest for not ordering quickly enough from the Starbucks menu.

The company’s CEO, Kevin Johnson, took charge of the situation and expressed his regrets and called the incident “reprehensible.” He flew to Philadelphia to personally apologize to the Black men, who had been locked down for eight hours before being released without charges. Black Lives Matter organized protests at the store and only through an iPhone video and Black Twitter did the issue reach international prominence. As a result Starbucks announced that it would close all of its more than 8,000 US stores on May 29 for “racial bias training” in light of the incident. 

And that is where it all collapsed for Starbucks’ experiment in racial healing. Inexplicably, Starbucks announced that the notoriously racist spy agency Anti-Defamation League—the ADL—would be conducting the “training.” And with that ill-conceived move, all the racial good will generated by the Starbucks CEO fizzled, fueling the calls for boycotting the 28,000-store coffee empire.  

It has only been days since the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt led a particularly vicious racial attack on Black national political leaders with no apparent rhyme or reason. The ADL targeted Barack Obama, then Keith Ellison, then Tamika Mallory, then Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Danny Davis (D-Ill.), Andre Carson (D-Ind.), Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), and Al Green (D-Texas)—ALL BLACK.

Tamika Mallory expressed the outrage of the Black masses in a tweet slamming Starbucks’ “tone deaf” decision: 

“…Starbucks was on a decent track until they enlisted the Anti-Defamation League to build their anti-bias training. The ADL is CONSTANTLY attacking black and brown people.”

Sister Tamika was being kind. According to Jewish writer Lenni Brenner, “the ADL has been a fanatic opponent of Black liberation.” Like J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, the ADL has a chillingly racist résumé of hate:

• In 1913, the father of the ADL, Leo Frank, is found guilty of the rape and murder of a young Christian girl. Frank tried desperately to pin the heinous crime on two Black men, who were nearly lynched for Frank’s crime.


• In 1942, the ADL boasts in a secret memo that a “Negro employed by us” proved “quite instrumental” in an FBI raid on the Nation of Islam’s Chicago mosque resulting in 82 arrests.


In 1979, the ADL pressured Pres. Jimmy Carter to fire United Nations ambassador Andrew Young when he protested the one-sided U.S. policy that was biased against the Palestinians.


• In 1983, the ADL launched a racist attack on Black presidential candidate Jesse Jackson when he pledged that his Middle East policy would be fair and balanced, with consideration of the plight of the Palestinians.


In 1992, the ADL vigorously opposed the election of Nelson Mandela to the presidency of South Africa. It openly supported a man who was funded by the white apartheid government to undermine Mandela’s own organization.


• In 1993, the ADL was indicted for spying on 12,000 individuals and organizations and sharing its illegally obtained information with the white apartheid South African and Israeli intelligence agencies. The groups included the NAACP, the Mandela Welcoming Committee, the Rainbow Coalition, and anti-apartheid South African groups, as well as Black American citizens like Rep. Ron Dellums, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Min. Louis Farrakhan.


In 1995, the ADL tried to disrupt and destroy the Million Man March, which was attended by 2 million Black men. It portrayed Black men as too ignorant to decide their own leadership without the ADL’s assistance.


The ADL accused movie director Spike Lee and entertainer Michael Jackson of being “anti-Semites,” claiming that they portrayed Jews in unfavorable ways, even as Jewish-run Hollywood blatantly and routinely portrays Blacks as criminals and whores without an intratribal peep from the ADL.


The ADL has quietly attacked affirmative action for Blacks in many legal cases in America. In the early 1970s, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund began filing lawsuits challenging the racist hiring and promotion practices of many American institutions. The ADL filed briefs opposing the NAACP—which shocked the NAACP legal teams. In cases concerning school admission, inclusion programs for minority businesses, and job promotion quotas—all designed to correct obvious historical racial discrimination—the NAACP soon realized that the ADL was one of the “most vociferous opponents of affirmative action.” The ADL in court documents even likened affirmative action to the laws of Hitler’s Third Reich!


• The ADL is aggressively “training” American police forces in the same brutalizing tactics the Israelis use on Palestinians in Apartheid Israel. The wanton murders of unarmed Black men, women, and children occur at the hands of police forces that have been Israeli-trained by the ADL. Ironically, the Starbucks incident occurred at the same moment that Durham, NC, became the first city in the US to bar its police department from training in Israel. It decreed:

IDF [Israel Defense Force]: The REAL “Coming to America”

The Israeli Defense Forces and the Israel Police have a long history of violence and harm against Palestinian people and Jews of Color. They persist in using tactics of extrajudicial killing, excessive force, racial profiling, and repression of social justice movements,” according to the petition. “These tactics further militarize U.S. police forces that train in Israel, and this training helps the police terrorize Black and Brown communities here in the US.
The history of the Black-Jewish relationship in Philadelphia has never been good, but Starbucks has just made it far, far worse. The ADL has operated as the heir to Hoover’s notorious COINTELPRO program—an American version of the Nazi SS. Think about that while sipping your next macchiato.
