Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan claims the “black man and woman living in America are the real children of Israel.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said that the prophetic children of Israel are not living in the modern Jewish state, but are the black man and woman living in the United States of America. During his lecture, entitled, “Who are the Real Children of Israel,” delivered at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, Farrakhan explained how the scripture references were used to frame and create social and political reality as Zionist thinkers and leaders justified and carved out the modern Jewish state. Here’s an excerpt from his lecture:
He uncovered the long history of Black-Jewish relations and Jewish connections with control of Blacks and their impact on Black progress—and the lack of Black progress from slavery and the days of King Cotton centuries ago to control of entertainers and athletes today.
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that Almighty God Allah revealed to him that the Black people of America are the real children of Israel and we are the choice of God and that unto us, He will deliver His Promise,” said Min. Farrakhan. “This question says that somebody has usurped our position. This question says that somebody has taken the promise of God to the children of Israel and claimed it for themselves.”
Blacks in America are God’s people, not those who inhabit land in Palestine, the Minister said. “These are the people that if you bless us, then God will take off of America some of the plagues that are now coming on America that will get worse after I deliver this message tonight!” said the Minister with hands outstretched toward the audience.
He challenged Biblical and Qur’anic scholars to disprove what he said, offering to pay with his very life, if proven false. He also delivered guidance—and a warning. “To all of those who feel that the children of Israel are over in that place they call Israel, you are mistaken. To the Christian right who feel that if you bless that Israel you will be blessed, but for over 60 years, that nation has not been blessed,” he said. Source: Final Call
Louis Farrakhan continues to maintain that the Jews control the black community. He claims that black culture is America’s largest world export with giants in the sports and entertainment industry, such as Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, P-Diddy and LeBron James, have Jewish advisers and financiers who have grown rich by facilitating the rise of black talent. Er, aren’t the aforementioned people capable of hiring who they choose to manage their financial affairs? Why is this a slap on the Jewish community? I think Louis Farrakhan is deliberately ignoring the issue of personal responsibility for many of the ills within the black community. Take black-on-black crime for example, did a Jew tell them to rob and kill one another in some inner city communities? Did a Jew tell Demario James Atwater to murder University of North Carolina student Eve Carson? Wait, did a Jew tell Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr. to murder Duke University engineering student Abhijit Mahato? Did the Jewish community singlehandedly cause the rise in gun violence in Chicago and Baltimore? It is time for Louis Farrakhan to place some blame for the plight of Black America, where it belongs, on our doorstep instead of pointing fingers at the Jewish community for slavery.
