In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
I was asked via Twitter whether I had offered condolences to the Malcolm Shabazz Family over the loss of Malcolm Shabazz, the son of Sister Qubilah Shabazz. I sent word to the family through our International Representative, Brother Akbar Muhammad, who has contact with Ilyasah Shabazz. He didn’t speak with her directly; but I gave him a message for the family, and he said he put it on her answering service. I hope that she received it; if not, the message is simply that: We, in the Nation of Islam, send our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family.
But I want to say to Black America: The same F.B.I. that hatched the plot to divide Brother Malcolm from his teacher and the Nation of Islam; that same F.B.I. that worked to destroy Black organizations and Black leadership, is the same F.B.I. that was dogging the footsteps of this young potential giant.
Though he had a troublesome young life, he was growing more and more into the spirit of his grandfather as a warrior for justice of our people. In February 2013, while he was on his way to Tehran, Iran to attend a conference on Hollywood’s depicting Muslims as “terrorists” and planting the seed of hatred in the hearts of people all over the world for Muslims, he was arrested in the airport by the F.B.I. and not permitted to attend that conference. And as we listened and read his remarks concerning his persecution through different media outlets, it seemed to me and to us that this young man was growing into a great helper of The Struggle of Black people in America, and oppressed people around the world.
We are not clear on what happened in Mexico… But you know, when The Enemy wants to get rid of you, one of the best places and times to do it is when you are away from your base. May God comfort the family and us in this loss. But at the same time: We really should look at the hypocrisy of a government that would place the picture of Brother Malcolm on a stamp, as though they really “admire” him; that there has been a “change of heart” and “now they love the man” that they once loved to hate… And then, at the same time as his picture is on a stamp, they worked to destroy the only remaining male member to carry on his legacy and his name.
“The Time and What Must Be Done”: Believe me, this criminal venture of the F.B.I. are the same criminal forces that we, by The Grace of Allah, will expose in Part 20 of this Lecture Series—because it’s “The Time”! And it’s “What Must Be Done”! And we’ll be doing that, by The Grace of Allah, until this year’s subject matter is completed.
“The Time” and “What Must Be Done”: “The Biggest Thing To Do” in this Time is to give the people The Knowledge of God, The Knowledge of Self, and The Knowledge of The Enemy of God and The Enemy of Humanity, Satan himself! We must expose Satan…
And so in this message, we hope to open up more deeply The Revelation of “The Synagogue of Satan,” and those so-called Jews who say they are what they are not.
The ones who ‘excelled the nations,’ mixing up truth with falsehood
We ended last week’s message, Part 19, with stating that we wanted to talk about the great success of members of the Jewish community in every sphere of human endeavor; not only in America, but throughout the world. And in Message To The Blackman in America, on page 174, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to us in “The Economic Blueprint” that he gave us: “Study the operations of the White man. He is successful; he makes no excuses for his failures. He works hard in a collective manner. You”—Black man and woman; or “we” should—“do the same.”
Of all the Whites, Jews and Gentiles, there’s no doubt that the Jewish people are the most successful, the most influential and the most powerful of all ethnic groups among the different ethnicities that exist among the Caucasian people. Though there are differences in “ethnicity”—some darker, some lighter; some with straighter hair, some with a little coarser hair, yet all of them come from “the same root”: Their “Father” is “Jacob,” or Yakub.
“The Synagogue of Satan” is comprised of Jews and Gentiles who are in rebellion against God: His Statutes, Laws and Commandments, His Will and His Way. And it is these so-called Jews who are giving “a bad name” to the righteous Jews who are practicing the teachings that Moses and the Israelite prophets have given them, that they have received and are trying their best to show their gratitude to Almighty God for having made them to excel the nations.
Study these words in the Holy Qur’an in Surah 2 Al-Baqarah (“The Cow”), verses 47-48: “O Children of Israel, call to mind My favour which I bestowed on you and that I made you excel the nations. And guard yourselves against a day when no soul will avail another in the least, neither will intercession be accepted on its behalf, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be helped.” And before that, in verses 40-42, the scripture says: “O Children of Israel, call to mind My favour which I bestowed on you and be faithful to (your) covenant with Me, I shall fulfil (My) covenant with you; and Me, Me alone, should you fear. And believe in that which I have revealed, verifying that which is with you, and be not the first to deny it; neither take a mean price for My messages; and keep your duty to Me, Me alone. And mix not up truth with falsehood, nor hide the truth while you know.” The “favors” that God gave to the Israelites are that He made them to “excel the nations”—but He warned them: “Don’t mix up truth with falsehood.” Almighty God gave you the Torah, Perfect Guidance to make you a great people on this Earth—however, you gave yourself the “Talmud.”
It is written in the Holy Qur’an that your rabbis and your doctors of law: They sat down and wrote a book; and they are trying to make the Talmud “the equal” of what God revealed, showing themselves that they, too, are like God, exclaiming: “He revealed a book, I’ll make one myself!” Well, those of you who follow the Talmud: Your days are fast coming to an end. “Woe! then to those who write the Book with their hands then say, This is from God; so that they may take for it a small price. So woe! to them for what their hands write and woe! to them for what they earn.” (Surah 2:79) And those of you who love the Torah, and love what God has revealed: Not only will you continue to be successful, you will live to see The Hereafter, and be a part of that which God makes new.
Some of you want us to deny The Truth that we have been given, saying that what we have written from our research of your scholars, your historians and your rabbis is “a calumny against the Jewish people.” But you wrote the Talmud with your hands—and it is against The Teachings of the Torah!
So today, God is placing you in “The Valley of Decision”: You’re going to have to choose whether you’re going to “obey God,” or whether you will “follow your own deviation” and “take a mean price” for The Words of God—corrupting them; altering His Words out of their places to deceive the people, to mislead the people. This is The Work of Satan; and this is why The Synagogue of Satan is being charged by Jesus Christ in John The Revelator’s Revelation (Rev. 2:9) of not being “true Jews.” You say you are “Jews,” but you are not. Therefore today, this wicked, false “synagogue” has to be exposed.
The ‘good Jews’ vs. ‘the synagogue’ under the control and dominance of sin
Study the Book of Romans, Chapter 3, verses 9-18, which are The Writings of Paul. Now, my name is “Louis”—I did not write the “Book of Romans”; I am only quoting Paul, without whose “Testimony of Jesus Christ” Jesus might never have been known to the world. …Without Paul’s preaching, Jesus would not have been known outside of that tiny little state of Palestine.
Paul writes: “What then? Are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes.” The scripture shows us all that Jews and Gentiles are “under sin.”
What is the definition of “under”? It means: “Behind,” or “hidden behind an appearance or disguise”; “lower in grade or rank than”; “used to express dominance or control.” Jews and Gentiles all “under sin”; so this “Synagogue of Satan” is under the control of sin, under the dominance of sin! So this “Man of Sin” spoken of in 2 Thessalonians, Chapter 2 that leads to perdition is The Master of that Synagogue!
Now, this group, the “Synagogue of Satan,” is different from those observant Jews who are blessed with wisdom and knowledge, and success, in this world and its life; who are not like these that “claim” to be Jews that are under The Dominance of Satan, and from that Synagogue, they practice this deceit, this evil.
And let me remind you, The Synagogue of Satan: You are always asking Negroes to denounce the so-called “bad ones.” And I am sure, now that I am taking up this subject, you are going to all of the Black men and women that you have under your control, asking them to denounce me—their brother! Well, some will do it… But to those observant Jews: Why don’t you speak out against The Synagogue of Satan? For their evil is covering the good Jews! And if you don’t speak out, it is as though you agree with The Wickedness that’s carried on by this false church, this false synagogue—and that would not be good for the righteous Jews.
We, the Nation of Islam, have been accused of having “Jew on the brain”; of being negatively obsessed with the Jews, and of being “anti-Semitic.” Some of you, my dear and beloved brothers: You can’t take this Revelation, and so you are condemning me in “the strongest language.” You should say to those who are encouraging you to do this: “With all due respect, Minister Farrakhan has asked you to meet him in the public for a ‘showdown.’ If you have the truth, he’ll pay with his life—you won’t have to bother with him anymore. Why don’t you go out and meet him? Why don’t you, who say that their research is ‘all a calumny’: Why don’t you bring your scholars, and he’ll bring his? And we’ll watch from the sidelines, and follow the one who wins ‘In The Name of God’.”
Why don’t you stand to the side, my beloved so-called Negro brothers and sisters, and ask them to come out now? They’ve always pushed you out front—this time, push them out!
Examples of Jewish influence and success all over the world
The Jewish influence over the affairs of the world is undeniably powerful—far out of proportion to their numbers (population). Their role in shaping public opinion through their media interests, and their mastering of the world of business and trade, is pivotal to the world economy. As a group, they are the most successful in terms of income and wealth; and they have reached the highest echelons, or “the pinnacle of power” in every field of human endeavor.
Please go to www.noi.org/thetime where the videos of these broadcasts appear, and you will find lists of what we have researched detailing the areas of 1) Jewish influence with the media, 2) Jewish influence in banking, 3) Jewish influence in government, and 4) Jewish influence in Hollywood. These things are not “secret”—they’re on the internet; we just went and looked it up. Now we’re positing it for you to read, so that you can see we are not “lying”—they are “the most powerful group”! And unfortunately, The Synagogue of Satan is leading America and this world to ruin, to destruction, to desolation.
These lists, we believe, prove that Jews are the masters of Hollywood, they are the masters of all forms of media, radio, television; they are the masters of Trade and Commerce, banking, medicine and law. But if we say this, then they will say: “Oh, Farrakhan is at it again! He’s using an old canard.” And what is a “canard”? A canard is “an unfounded rumor or story”; so anything that we point out, they say, “It’s false!” “It’s untrue!” “Farrakhan is lying!” “The Nation of Islam is hateful of Jews!”
We are going to prove that their real power is not a “rumor,” nor is it “unfounded.” They—The Satanic Jews—are the power in Hollywood and other fields of endeavor. So here, I would like to quote from some Jewish historians and Jewish scholars, on what they say about the “Jewish power” in America and in the world:
Simon Wolf, who was Jewish, was an attorney, a Freemason, a former B’nai B’rith President; and chairman of the Civil and Religious Rights Committee of the Hebrew Congregations. According to his writings, Mr. Wolf stated: “The Jews first made use of letters of credit. We all know that the first bankers of the world—Rothschilds—are Jews; we know they control not only the money market, but also the political destiny of the European world; and one thing can be truthfully said, they never mix their religion with other people’s money. Even our loans were taken principally by Jews; but mercantile enterprises owe a vast debt to the Jew. You need but look at the streets of the principal cities of the world on Jewish holidays, and you will at once see that trade is in mourning; the busy hum is hushed; everything is languid; the active brain, the quick, nervous decision, the daring, yet cautious, speculator is absent. Look at Spain and Ireland, and then at England, France, Germany and the United States”—look!—“and yet this very activity is made a weapon of attack.” In all of these cities on a Jewish holiday, business stops, because they are the masters not only in America’s cities, but in cities throughout Europe and the Western world.
Did you know that I was once told by a rabbi here in Chicago: “Farrakhan, any man that is seen as an ‘enemy of the Jewish people’ will never be spoken of well in History”—and I can understand why, because according to Lenni Brenner, a Jewish Marxist involved with the Civil Rights Movement, wrote that today’s Jews are: 20 percent of the nation’s doctor and lawyers; book publishers such as Simon and Schuster, Knopf and Random House are Jewish; CBS and NBC were Jewish; half of New York’s theatrical producers were Jews, and they exert complete control over the production of movies; and half the opinion-making and taste influencing paraphernalia in America is in Jewish hands.
According to Neal Gabler, a Jewish professor at University of Southern California, who is a journalist, author, and political commentator, and co-host of the PBS review show Sneak Previews, once stated: “What is amazing is the extent to which they succeeded in promulgating this fiction throughout the world. By making a ‘shadow’ America, one which idealized every old glorifying bromide about the country, the Hollywood Jews created a powerful cluster of images and ideas—so powerful that, in a sense, they colonized the American imagination…. Ultimately, American values came to be defined largely by the movies [that] the Jews made.” What you mean “shadow America”? What do you mean offering the public an “old glorifying bromide”? A “bromide” is a sedative that is used to sedate people, make them less conscious, stupefy them—put them in a state where they’re not in a state of mind to make an intelligent decision! This is what Hollywood has done, according to Neal Gabler.
And when we speak of the Jewish people “controlling Hollywood”: In an op-ed article written by Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein titled “How Jewish is Hollywood?” (December 19, 2008), he stated: “…Only 22 percent of Americans now believe ‘the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,’ down from nearly 50 percent in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results [on November 14, 2008] sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.” It was the Anti-Defamation League that took credit for the way the American public had changed their thinking. This is because they do not want you to come to grips with the knowledge that they are in total control of Hollywood.
And Charles Silberman, a Jewish writer of a book called A Certain People: American Jews and Their Lives Today, stated: “The motion picture industry was largely a Jewish invention, and it remains a predominantly (although not exclusively) Jewish industry. In a study of the most influential writers, producers, and executives, the political scientists Stanley Rothman and S. Robert Lichter found that more than three out of five members of the ‘movie elite’ are Jews.” Rob Reiner, a movie director and actor, and the son of comedian Carl Reiner, stated in 1992 about “Hollywood”: “It’s all run by Jews, even Disney. That’s funny, because Walt Disney was a terrible reactionary. If he found out that Jeffrey Katzenberg were running his company, he’d be spinning in his grave. [That’s] a wonderful bit of poetic justice.”
On “racism in movies”: Dalton Trumbo, a Gentile, who was an American screenwriter and novelist that testified in 1947 before the House Un-American Activities Committee—and was “blacklisted”—stated: “[Hollywood] [made] tarts of the Negro’s daughters, crap shooters of his sons, obsequious Uncle Toms of his fathers, superstitious and grotesque crones [“an ugly, skinny or fat woman”] of his mothers, strutting peacocks of his successful men, psalm-singing mountebanks of his priests, and Barnum and Bailey side-shows of his religion.” Go back and look at the movies that feature us in the Black church, and look at how Hollywood portrays us! On “racism in television”: According to a Forbes magazine article, the entertainment business is one of the few in which the United States retains unquestioned worldwide preeminence, and manages to export substantially more than it imports. In fact, “entertainment exports” earned a bigger net profit for the United States in 1986 than the exports of any other industry, except the defense aerospace complex.
Well, brothers and sisters: We are made to look pretty bad… How, then, Mr. Mark Potock of the Southern Poverty Law Center, could you put us as a “hate group” when we have done nothing to belittle Jews, except expose the bad ones?
Look at what Hollywood has done to us—it has made us hated throughout the world; looked upon as an “inferior” people! Hollywood did this! Your Jewish brethren did this! The Synagogue of Satan did this! Why didn’t you put them on the “Hate List”?
How Jewish media ‘normalizes’ sexual degeneracy, changing the ‘sexual attitudes’ of American people
According to our research, the website Judaism Online contains a list that presents only the most outstanding, well-recognized Jews in the American media. I would also like to point out that according to the Lichter-Rothman poll conducted in the early 1980s, it was found that top Jewish media executives were overwhelming “liberal,” and were “radically out-of-step with the moral values of the American public”—please think on that. And of these “liberal” Jews: 97 percent affirm a woman’s right to an abortion, if she pleases; 80 percent disagree that homosexuality is “wrong”; 86 percent believe that homosexuals have the right to be school teachers; 51 percent believe that adultery is permissible; and of 104 top executives polled, 59 percent were raised in the Jewish religion. Who can deny such Jewish domination of big media?
But does it matter “who” dominates the media? It does. Look, the media shapes not only our children’s values and actions, but our own. The Jewish media has normalized sexual degeneracy, profanity, and all kinds of sin; it also leads us into war to make the Mid-East “safe for Israel”—this happened in Afghanistan, Iraq; and tomorrow, maybe Iran. If an “anti-Christian agenda” were being advanced by the followers of Sun Myung Moon [“The Unification Church”] or Scientologists [“The Church of Scientology”], dominating the most powerful positions of media leadership in America, there would be a “howl” of protest! But they, The Synagogue of Satan, dominate, and they are leading America into “the moral ditch” of hell.
And guess what? Vice President Joe Biden, speaking on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Jewish American Heritage Month reception hosted by the Democratic National Committee, said that “the Jews are responsible for changing the sexual attitudes of the American people”—they are responsible for the attitudes that are changing toward “same-sex marriage.” Is this why President Obama is the first president in the history of this nation to sanction “same-sex marriage”?
Did I not say a few broadcasts ago that it is written in the scriptures that the hyenas, the jackals, the owls, and the wild goats are in the palatial buildings of this Western world? Are they surrounding our brother? Look who is around our president, Barack Obama: Rahm Emanuel, who is now mayor of Chicago, was the White House Chief of Staff; Joe Biden, a self-proclaimed Zionist who stated about Iran, “Israel can determine for itself—it’s a sovereign nation…”; Ron Klain, Chief of Staff to the Vice President; Mona Sutphen, Deputy White House Chief of Staff; 2nd behind Rahm Emanuel; David Axelrod, Special Adviser to the President; Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary, former President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank [“The Fed”]; Paul Volcker, Chair of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board (and former Chairman of “The Fed”); Lawrence (Larry) Summers, Director of the White House National Economic Council, a Wall Street executive; Jared Bernstein, Chief Economist and Economic Policy Adviser; Gary Gensler, Chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission; Elena Kagan, a Supreme Court justice; Mary Schapiro, Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission; Robert Rubin, Economic adviser to Obama and Biden; Dennis Ross, Obama’s Ambassador-At-Large in the entire Middle East; a Zionist is “the top adviser,” [and the list goes on].
Now, I am not saying that they are members of such a “Synagogue,” nor am I saying that those in government are members of such a “Synagogue”—but, we’ll see! However, they are “masters” of business, trade and commerce; computers, retail, real estate. They master the entertainment business. They master the sports management, coaches and owners. They master the music industry, and the recording industry. And guess what? Some of them have been, and are, the greatest criminal mobsters in American history.
Did you know that there are more Jewish billionaires than any other racial or ethnic group on our planet? And they are also the leading mobsters? For example, Mr. Moses L. Annenberg, who lived from 1877 to 1942, had given at least $50 million at one time towards education; also, he was a newspaper man—and an organized crime figure. Yes, yes, yes… Mr. Annenberg sponsored criminal gangs on behalf of the Hearst Corporation during Chicago’s “circulation wars” of 1910–1911, and later became owner of the National Racing Wire during the 1920s and 1930s. He used his wealth to purchase The Philadelphia Inquirer, and founded the Annenberg Foundation. But he was jailed for tax evasion in 1939—and when you talk about “crime,” this man engaged, from what I’ve read, in White sex trafficking before he started turning his money toward so-called “legitimate” purposes.
I remember during an interview that I had some years ago with Barbara Walters—she asked me what did I think about Mr. Annenberg and his giving all of this money through his foundation to “education.” I don’t know whether I actually said this to her; I believe I thought it, and said something close to this: “Why shouldn’t he, since ‘education’ is what these Satanic Jews use to control the learned, as well as the masses. So he invested for himself, and his people, to continue their control.”
The ‘Jews’ who run the American porn industry
Well, I think it’s time for us to delve into the last thing I want to state… In the Winter 2004 edition of The Jewish Quarterly periodical (No. 196), a Jewish man by the name of Nathan Abrams wrote an article titled “Triple-exthnics: Nathan Abrams on Jews in the American porn industry.”
Mr. Abrams states: “…Early Jewish pornographers were marketing geniuses and ambitious entrepreneurs whose toughness, intelligence and boundless self-confidence were responsible for their successes. Of course, the large number of Jews in porn were mainly motivated by the desire to make profits. …”—and the next part, he quotes Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, who says: “‘Those Jews who enter the pornography industry have done so as individuals pursuing the American dream’.” Mr. Foxman: You mean you would not condemn those of your brethren who are feeding the American public this degenerate pornography?
Mr. Abrams continues: “…Jewish involvement in porn, by this argument, is the result of an atavistic hatred of Christian authority: they are trying to weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion.” [The term “atavistic” means “happening because of a very old habit from a long time ago in human history, not because of a conscious decision or because it is necessary now.”] Then he quotes Al Goldstein, a publisher and pornographer in his article: “…‘The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.’ Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture and, as it penetrates to the very heart of the American mainstream (and is no doubt consumed by those very same [White Anglo-Saxon Protestants] WASPs), its subversive character becomes more charged…”—wow—“…A large amount of the material on sexual liberation was written by Jews. Those at the forefront of the movement which forced America to adopt a more liberal view of sex were Jewish. …”
Well, brothers and sisters, this is really demonstrating The Synagogue of Satan. Satan makes evil “fairseeming”; so, brothers and sisters, if you follow America, this “Satanic Mind,” this is dangerous for you!
Guidance and warning not only to ‘reveal Satan,’ but for the correction of self
This is a “Guidance” that I’m giving, and a “Warning”: Nothing that I’ve said to you, in “Revealing Satan,” is for you to take it upon yourself to take any hostile action towards any so-called Jewish person, because you don’t know “the good” from “the bad”!
To all of you Muslims and Christians: The Holy Qur’an says in Surah 5 Al-Ma’idah (“The Food”), verse 8, “Let not hatred of a people incite you to act unjustly…,” for if your “emotions,” after the knowledge of them, runs to “hate” because of The Truth of what I am saying: You turn that “hate” into energy—and direct it against alcohol, drugs, disrespect of your women; and put it into the reading of books and enlightening yourself, and making yourself a better human being! This truth is designed to cause you to “fall away” from such a person—Satan—after you know him! And to my brothers and sisters who are in “sports and entertainment,” and in “business,” and have relationships with members of the Jewish community: Ask your “friends”; vet them [make a careful and critical examination of someone/something], and see where they are! They are going to tell you, “Farrakhan is destroying Black-Jewish relationships!” so that you might see me as an “enemy”—like it was 2,000 years ago when Jesus came into Jerusalem on an “ass,” and a few days later the people were crying out: “Crucify him!”
If you follow this Satanic Mind, and his advice, he will encourage you—he’ll even threaten you—if you don’t stand up and “denounce Farrakhan” for what I am saying! But what you do is you tell him what I said:
“COME ON OUT, AND FACE ME YOURSELF!”
America is being led into the crosshairs of God’s Wrath! Look at the calamities that are coming at you, one right behind another! Your “leading America into rebellion” is now coming back at you! This is why, America, there has to be a “falling away from these Satanic Jews and Gentiles in this “Synagogue of Satan.”
And this is why “the good Jews,” the righteous Jews, have to separate themselves from “the Talmud lovers,” and come back exclusively to God, standing up for The Torah, and what God Revealed.
