Farrakhan: In His Own Words

For more than 30 years, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI), has been a notable extremist figure, railing against Jews, white people and the LGBT community.

In recent years, Farrakhan has embarked on a wide-ranging campaign specifically targeting the Jewish community, a campaign that has featured some of the most hateful speeches of his tenure as head of NOI. Farrakhan has alleged that the Jewish people were responsible for the slave trade and that they conspire to control the government, the media and Hollywood, as well as various black individuals and organizations. He frequently denies the legitimacy of Judaism – or Jewish claim to the land of Israel -- arguing that Judaism is nothing more than a “deceptive lie” and a “theological error” promoted by Jews to further their “control” over America’s government and economy. 

Over the years, Farrakhan’s speeches have attracted a range of politicians and other public figures. He draws thousands of attendees to his speeches, which gives him the dubious distinction of being quite possibly America’s most popular anti-Semite.

During a speech at Washington, D.C.’s Watergate Hotel in November 2017, Farrakhan told his audience that the Jews who “owned a lot of plantations” were responsible for undermining black emancipation after the Civil War. He also endorsed the second volume of the anti-Semitic book, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” which blames Jews for promoting a myth of black racial inferiority and makes conspiratorial accusations about Jewish involvement in slave trade and the cotton, textiles, and banking industries. Farrakhan believes this book should be taught in schools.

In 2018, Farrakhan continued his anti-Semitic commentary in public appearances and on Twitter, where he warned his 335,000 followers about “the Satanic Jew.” In an October 2018 speech marking the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March, Farrakhan told his followers, “When they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you know how they do – call me an anti-Semite. Stop it, I’m anti-termite!” 

Below, a selection of hateful and conspiratorial statements made by Farrakhan about Jews, Jewish conspiracies, the Holocaust, Jewish involvement in the slave trade, Israel, dialogue with Jews, whites, the U.S. government and the LGBT community:

ON JEWS

“Why isn’t the white man a native anywhere? You’re not a native Palestinian, no you’re not. You didn’t originate there. But if you did, then you’re the real Semitic people. But the Ashkenazi European, he has no connection at all to the Holy Land. None! So in a showdown prove to us that you are Semitic. Let’s go on with it, it’s our time now!” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 11/18/18

“Do you know that many of us who go to Hollywood seeking a chance, we have to submit to anal sex and all kids of debauchery, and they give you a little part?

“But when you’ve got revelation that came to you from God through all these prophets, then that’s your test because if you use God’s truth that makes you wiser than others and use it to promote evil when you should be promoting good, then you’re no longer a Jew. And that’s why the scripture says, “I will make those who say they are Jews,” this is Revelation 2 and 9, ‘Who say they are Jews, but they are not, I will make them of the Synagogue of Satan.’ — Interview on WCGI 107.5 Chicago, 5/11/18

“But there are righteous Jews, good Jews, Jews that want to practice the teachings of the prophets, but then there are others who don’t wish to practice, and it is they that hated Reverend [Jesse] Jackson’s desire to be President.” — Speech at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC, 11/11/17

“Those who call themselves ‘Jews,” who are not really Jews, but are in fact Satan: You should learn to call them by their real name, ‘Satan;’ you are coming face-to-face with Satan, the Arch Deceiver, the enemy of God and the enemy of the Righteous.” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 2), 2/26/17

“I want to disabuse the Jews today of the false claim that you are ‘The Chosen of God,’ and that Israel, or Palestine, belongs to you; I want to disabuse you of that…And I'm going to tell you about your future: You that think you have power to frighten and dominate the peoples of the world. I am here to announce the end of your time.” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 1), 2/19/17

“This past December we organized a boycott of Christmas and our theme was ‘Up with Jesus! Down with Santa!’ Here is the white man, many of whom that have these businesses, they don't believe in Jesus. I'm going to say it again: Many of the biggest business people are called Jews, and they don't believe in Jesus. But you love Jesus so magnificently, that now they can make money—a lot of money—off of your love. So, they set up Christmas.” — Speech delivered at Mosque Maryam at the second annual “Boys to Men Empowerment Conference, Chicago, Illinois, 4/20/2016

“Do you know that the enemies of Jesus were the Jews of his day and the Roman authorities? That wasn’t 2000 years ago alone. That’s today!” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 2), Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois 3/2/14

“David — even though he may have made a mistake — he submitted and repented before God. This you false Jews have not done. No. You are not a Jew! I say you’re a so-called Jew. You are Satan masquerading as a covenanted people of God. You must be exposed, regardless of the consequences…” — The Time and What Must Be Done: Part 57, 2/8/14

“Did you know that Jesus had a real problem with the Jewish community? They had power, the rabbis of that day, over the Roman authorities just as they have power today over our government.” — Remarks at Indianapolis Convention Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, 12/1/13

“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.” — The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 20: Making Satan Known, 5/25/13

“The Jewish media has normalized sexual degeneracy, profanity, and all kinds of sin.” — The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 20: Making Satan Known, 5/25/13

“Socialism or communism is a doctrine they have to fight cause it ends their wealth and their power, wherever socialism rises, capitalism begins to die…So the International Jew is affected by the rise of socialism, it is in their DNA to fight anything that will raise the common man. This is why they fight any voice that the little man will listen to.” — The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 17, 5/4/13

“You that think that those who refer to themselves as Jews are the real Children of Israel? No. You have made a real theological mistake and some of you have made a theological error because you know the truth, but yet you consider your wickedness in promoting a deceptive lie.” — The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 5, 2/9/13

“Now you know I’m going to be lambasted and called anti-Semitic… They’ll 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

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.

“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, San Diego, California, 5/27/12

“Do you know Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over?” — Saviours' Day speech, 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 speech, 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 speech, 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. He’s with you as an agent, he’s with you as a manager, he’s with you as an investor, he’s 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, he’s in trade and commerce.” — Interview with radio station WPFW-FM, Washington, DC, 4/1/10

“Some of you think that I’m just somebody who’s got something out for the Jewish people. You’re 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 speech, 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, Illinois, 10/3/10

“How did we get a Black president? Because those Satanic Jews know 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, Illinois, 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, Illinois, 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, Illinois, 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, Illinois, 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, Baltimore, Maryland, 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. There’s deception here and the deceiver and the deception has to be exposed.” — Interview on the Michael Eric Dyson show, Baltimore, Maryland, 8/23/10

“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, Illinois, 7/11/10

“You are of the Synagogue of Satan and therefore will be dealt with by God.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/11/10

“Now, Jews are very sensitive people. If you even look like you’re gonna criticize them they get very defensive. And you could say they’re 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 don’t 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, Illinois, 7/11/10

“I’ve asked [the Jewish people], ‘since your people put ours in this condition, why don’t you help me raise our people up from the degraded state that your people have put them in?’” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 6/26/10

“Other than the Bible, there is no historical record of anybody named 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 that. Now they were freed from a bondage alright, but that was in the hills and cave sides of Europe.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 6/26/10

“These people have no legitimate connection to that land. They didn't come into existence in the Holy Land.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 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.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 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.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 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.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 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.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 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.” —Atlanta, Georgia, 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.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 6/26/10

“Since he's been in office, [Obama] surrounded himself [with] certain very powerful elements within the Jewish community; and has brought around him as advisers' some of those from Goldman Sachs, who advised him about this bailout money. Our brother, now, is disappointing to some aspects of that community, and that is the beginning of the end. Because, when they're disappointed with you, the force that they have, the power that they have, the influence that they have is gradually turned against you if you don't submit.” — Interview with WVON radio, Chicago, Illinois, 3/24/10

“The Black man and woman have always been looked upon as the 'property' of White America; and particularly, members of the Jewish community. They've always looked at you as 'belonging' to them.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 3/7/10

“The Jewish people have said that Hollywood is theirs. Can any of you deny that they are the masters of Hollywood, where sex, lesbianism, homosexuality and violence are promoted?” —Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 3/7/10

“Who owns the recording companies? People who call themselves 'Jews,' but they are not Jews; they are masquerading. And the so-called Jews who run those record companies, they use you, and they've sent you all over the world degrading the culture of other nations with your filth and debauchery.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 3/7/10

“There were members of the Jewish community that helped to start NAACP but they were watchmen over how that organization developed, to keep it in a certain line.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/26/09

“Do you know some of these satanic Jews have taken over BET?... Everything that we built, they have. The mind of Satan now is running the record industry, movie industry and television. And they make us look like we're the murders; we look like we're the gangsters, but we're punk stuff.” — Justifiable Homicide: Black Youth in Peril (Part 3), Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 11/11/07

“The real anti-Semites are those who came out of Europe and settled in Palestine, and now they call themselves the true Jews, when in fact, they converted to Judaism.” — Al Jazeera TV interview, 3/18/07

“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. It's the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting Lesbianism, homosexuality. It's wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/06

“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.” — 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.” — National Press Club, Washington, D.C., 5/3/04

“Dewey, Kant and Hegel, and the rabbis that wrote the Talmud, make blacks inferior.” National Black Agenda Convention, Boston, Massachusetts, 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, Massachusetts, 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, Illinois, 2/29/04

“You don't mention the horror of our suffering. Here's why: it's because of something called the Hamitic curse…according to the Babylonian scholars, writers of the Talmud, not the Torah, but Talmud...the Hamitic curse was written off in the Talmud 400 years after the birth of Jesus…in the Talmud they talk about 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, Illinois, 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 antiSemite. 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?, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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?, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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?, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 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.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 10/16/03

“I'm not into integration. I ain't for that. God told the Jews, he didn't want you intermarrying with others. But you disobeyed him. He don't want us uniting into this that he's come to judge. You can't integrate with wickedness if you want righteousness.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 10/16/03

“You can go to Palestine, called Israel today, you can see Sodom, you can see Gomorrah, ain't nothing built there. God hadn't let anything be built there to show you his displeasure against homosexual behavior. Now the church says it's all right. I was an Episcopalian before I was a Muslim, and I liked my church. I can't remember anybody in the church, if they were gay they were hiding that. They were sure acting like men, you know what I mean.” — Eighth Holy Day of Atonement sermon, Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 10/16/03

“I don't hate Jews. I honor and respect those who try to live according to the teachings of the Torah, but you can't criticize Jewish people. If you criticize them you are anti-Semitic. If you don't agree with what they are doing, you are anti-Semitic. The Bible says, Revelations, those who say they are Jews and are not, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan. I don't hear you preaching that full Gospel. You are afraid of consequences. But no man can say he's a Jew and promote homosexuality. No man can say he's a Jew and promote that which is against the commandments of God. No man can say he's a Jew and run the despicable, degenerate movies. The filth and degenerate language.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/23/03

Farrakhan: "Who owns the federal reserve?"

Audience: "Jews."

Farrakhan: "The same year they set up the IRS, they set up the FBI. And the same year they set up the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. It could be a coincidence.

“They [the Jews] are the greatest controllers of Black minds, Black intelligence. They write the scripts -- the foolish scripts on television that our people portray. They are the movie moguls that feature us in these silly, degrading, degenerate roles. The great recording companies that portray our people in such a filthy and low-rating way, yet they would not allow such a man as Michael Jackson to say one word that they thought would besmirch their reputation, but they put us before the world as clowns and as purveyors of filth. No, I will fight that.” — Meet The Press interview, 10/18/98

“He was talking to his masters. Sir, I am not the least bit disturbed by that. Any time the Jewish philanthropists financed the NAACP, they have a stake in what the NAACP does. So the leaders of that organization have to kowtow to those kinds of powers. That's what I'm angry about. I'm hateful of their inordinate control over black politicians, black intellectuals, black organizations, and I will fight to destroy that kind of control as long as God gives me health and strength. We will never be free until we are free of that kind of control that limits our ability to state exactly what we think and what we feel." — Meet The Press interview, 10/18/98

“To continue to point out the truth of that control and how that control never will allow us to be full and completely men, free, justified, and equal. Why should we be controlled by the power, influence, and money of others? We should not be under that kind of control...going to Jewish philanthropists, begging them for money to support our causes, and through that money, there is control, and that kind of control limits the freedom of our people to speak freely, write freely, think freely, and act as free men...” — Meet the Press interview, 4/14/97

“You do with me as is written, but remember that I have warned you that Allah will punish you. You are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood. You are not real Jews, those of you that are not real Jews. You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the U.S. government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell. But I warn you in the name of Allah, you would be wise to leave me alone. But if you choose to crucify me, know that Allah will crucify you.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/25/96

“I don't own Hollywood. Who depicted Black people? Who writes the books? Who writes the plays, the songs that make us look less than human?

And I believe that has fallen on me.” — Interview with New York Amsterdam News, New York, New York, 1/8/94

Then-candidate Trump “is the only man…that stood in front of some members of the Jewish community and told them ‘I don’t want your money’… Any time a man can say to those who control the politics of America, ‘I don’t want your money,’ that means if I don’t take your money you can’t control me.

They needed another Pearl Harbor. 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. You’re dealing with Satan himself, the Synagogue of Satan… you’re dealing with Satan himself, the Synagogue of Satan…Now they got into the Bush administration and on 9/11 the Twin Towers went down…George Bush, and those devils, Satans around him. They plotted 9/11. Ain’t no Muslim took control of no plane.” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 2), 2/28/16

“And today in 2013, we are in December of this year, 100 years since the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank and the Internal Revenue Service and the ADL. America’s debt has gone from two billion dollars to more than sixteen trillion dollars. Now they set these institutions up to work in unity: the Federal Reserve, the IRS, and the ADL. One was to create debt, the other was to enforce a tax policy to take from the American citizens enough to pay that debt, and the watchdog of the whole thing was to see who would recognize who did this, and that’s when the ADL raised the cry of anti-Semitism, and now America is seeing herself in ruin because of it.” — Saviours’ Day 2013 Keynote Address, Chicago, Illinois, 2/24/13

And how many millions of Americans lost their lives? Suppose Hitler was trying to destroy the international bankers controlling Europe, but he went about it by attacking a whole people. All Jews are not responsible for the evil of the few who do evil. But certain Jews have used Judaism as a shield." — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/95

ON THE HOLOCAUST

“Satan, now knowing that people are going to become aware of him, he started in Europe. You cannot, in Europe say that the Holocaust didn’t exist. You can say God doesn’t exist. There will be no penalty. You can curse God and there will be no penalty. But if you say that there’s something wrong with the figures of the Holocaust, if you disagree with the Jewish version of the Holocaust that’s considered a hate crime.

“So when the Jews were punished and beaten and murdered, they left Spain. Where did you go? Went into the Caribbean. Went into South America and you became plantation owners. That is why many Jewish people don’t want us to talk about reparations. I’m not a hater, just get that out of your mind. My passion is for truth and justice. But no Jewish person who will be brave enough to read your history will come away saying your hands are cleaned. Here’s a book, where’s my book? Here it is – it’s called The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews… One of our brothers, brother Allen, did research in Jewish libraries, he never quoted a rabbi or Jewish scholar who was a hater of the Jewish people. He put out this book.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/29/04

"[U]ntil Jews apologize for their hand in that ugly slave trade; and until the Jewish rabbis and the Talmudic scholars that made up the Hamitic myth -- that we were the children of Ham, doomed and cursed to be hewers of wood and drawers of water -- apologize, then I have nothing to apologize for." — Interview in Swing magazine, 9/24/96

"How did I get to be an anti-Semite...What have I done? I told the truth about Jewish involvement in the slave trade. Your own writers say the same thing. Well, if they're not anti-Semitic for writing it, how the hell am I anti-Semitic for reading what they wrote and then saying it?...I didn't write your history, you wrote it. And then the sad thing, when you confront them with what their scholars have said, they say, 'Well is this part of the old conspiracy talk?'" — Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 3/19/95

ON ISRAEL

“Israel has no permanent home in our Holy Land. The Holy Land does not belong to a White Arab or a White Jew. You are settlers on our land.” — Tweet from the official Louis Farrakhan Twitter account, 5/18/17

“There’ll be nothing in the Middle East for them to bargain over the way things are happening now. And I’m warning Mecca, and I’m warning Tehran, and I’m warning the Muslim world in the name of Allah that the way you are going at each other to the joy of the enemy. The Quran says ‘hold fast to the rote of Allah,’ which is Islam, ‘and be not divided for in your division you are hastening your destruction.’ So Middle East, be ready because Israel has no permanent home in our, listen to me good, in our holy land. Holy land don’t belong to a white Arab or a white Jew. You are settlers on our land, don’t you forget what I’m saying because we are the original owners of that part of the earth and you all kicked us out and assumed our position. But now God has come and we are coming to reclaim what belongs to us, and it’s not Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) for you, it’s the whole of the earth for us. 196,940,00 square miles of it all and it all belongs to the original black man of the earth.” — Interview on the Cliff Kelly Show, WVON Chicago, 5/9/17

“To Israel, Bibi: you’re coming out of there. You don’t have a permanent home there. Your desire is to conquer that whole area lying, saying that ‘Abraham promised you.’ He ain’t promised you a damn thing!” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 2), 2/26/17

“So to my Palestinian brothers: You’ve been there longer than the Ashkenazi Jew, who is a convert to Judaism, but they are severe white racists, and though you are their real brother they hate you.” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 2), 2/26/17

 “Some of your own scholars say you’re not even connected to the land called Palestine, that you the Ashkenazi Jewish people are Europeans…You didn’t speak Hebrew, you spoke Yiddish...You came out of Khazar. You were the one that became a convert to Judaism, and look at your behavior since you have taken land from the Palestinians…” — The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 19: Making Satan Known, 5/18/13

“You need a man in government that has another opinion that is not controlled, and if the Senate does not confirm him as Defense Secretary because of his opinion on Israel, that only proves that the Senate and the U.S. Congress is controlled by the Israel lobby, and it also sentences America to war with Iran for the State of Israel.” — Saviours’ Day 2013 Keynote Address, Chicago, Illinois, 2/24/13

“If America, my America, foolishly follows Israel and attacks Iran, now then that makes Israel the aggressor. I read she's trying to bomb Iran before the election to make it very difficult for Obama to be reelected if he doesn't fall in line with the rest of the warmongers that Netanyahu has more control over than the president of the United States...And if America bombs Iran you can't look for our support. I wouldn't ask one American to go die for Israel. Now you that say that they're the chosen of God, you go die for them! But we know who the chosen of God are, and we've been saying it, and we will debate any scholar about that question.” — Interview with Cliff Kelley on WVON 1690, Chicago, Illinois, 7/6/12

“The government of America is owned lock stock and barrel by those Zionists that love Israel above the United States of America.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

“The government of the United States has made an agreement with hell and a covenant with death. You have locked onto the Zionist control of your government, your media, and you're afraid to stand up because if you do, they'll tell you, you won't be reelected.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

“I advise white and black America, Hispanic and Asian America, why would you send your children to die in a war engineered by Zionists who love Israel more than they love the United States of America?” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

“Did you know that Israel provoked the war in the Sudan? For 20 years or more, the Sudan was in the civil war and it started because Israel wanted to create a war in southern and northern Sudan to divert Egypt to come to the defense of the Sudan to take pressure away from Egypt attacking Israel.” — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/12

“You have Semitic Jews that have lived in the Holy Land for hundreds and thousands of years. They speak Hebrew, they speak Arabic. But where did these white people, called Ashkenazi Jews, come from?... See, there was some European Jews that got converted to Judaism and from them came the Zionist movement. The Zionist movement did not start in Palestine, it started in Europe.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 10/3/10

“So Zionism was hatched in Europe and they decided that they would fulfill the scriptures of the children of Israel, and they kept bringing Jews into Palestine until they swelled the Jewish population. And then in 1948 the newly formed United Nations decided to give the Jews who were suffering under Hitler a state in Palestine. And that started the wars with the Arab people.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 10/3/10

“See Theodore Herzl and the Zionist movement looked at scripture as a basis for Zionist philosophy to take that land from the Palestinians. But they got it from the book. Mistaken understanding of the book and you gonna pay for your error.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 6/26/10

“When the people of Gaza were being slaughtered, the pro-Israeli lobby sent messages to the House and the Senate of words that they wanted them to use, gave them the language, and now you have bipartisan support. And there's not a vote that the pro-Israeli lobby wants that doesn't get bipartisan support. Why? Because the Israeli lobby controls the government of the United States of America.” — Saviours’ Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 3/1/09

“Liars, thieves, murderers. They went into Gaza… But our corporate-controlled TV will not allow the American people to see what the Israeli Defense Force did, how it affects Israel’s image around the world, and how it affects America. They drop phosphorous bombs. They drop depleted uranium, dirty bombs. They used new weapons that have never been used in a theater of war before, they tried them out on the Palestinians. They killed men, women, children. Nobody’s saying anything. It is as though it’s wrong to say, ‘Israel, you’re wrong.’… You’ve taken the position of God. You saying, ‘kill everybody.’” — Saviours’ Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 3/1/09

“You expect Muslims to stand against suicide bombers. You expect us to say, 'wait a minute, you do not kill innocent people for political purposes.' You want us to say that and if we don't say it you rise up against us. But we don't hear you correcting your brothers because what they're doing is creating hatred for Israel and hatred for America that looks the other way while the Palestinians are being slaughtered." — Saviours’ Day, Rosemont, Illinois, 3/1/09

“As I said over 20 years ago, there will be no peace for Israel, because there can be no peace as long as that peace is based on lying, stealing, murder, and using God's name to shield a wicked, unjust practice that is not in harmony with the Will of God.” — Year-end Interview with the Final Call, Chicago, Illinois, 1/6/08

"And the Christian right, with your blindness to that wicked state of Israel can that be the holy land, and you have gay parades, and want to permit to have a gay parade in Jerusalem when no prophet ever sanctioned that behavior. HOW CAN THAT BE THE ISRAEL, how can that be Jerusalem with secular people running the holy land when it should be the holy people running the holy land. That land is gonna be cleansed with BLOOD!" — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/06

"I'm warning you America. You better get rid of them neocons. That's the synagogue of Satan. They have made America weak. You're a weak nation now, and your country has been taken from you by the synagogue of Satan. They own congress. That's why the congress ain't right." — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/06

“The war in Iraq is not your war; that's Israel's war. Iraq was not an enemy of America as such; Iraq could not do anything to America, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Libya hated the fact that Israel took land from the Palestinians, so these countries were an inveterate enemy of Israel. So, how does Ariel Sharon inspire America to go to war with Iraq, when Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11? The neo-conservatives who manipulate the government are like the rudder of a ship. The rudder is a small thing, but it turns a big ship in the ocean. The rudder that is turning America is not your elected officials; it's that small influential group of neo-conservatives that are using America's power to destroy the enemies of Israel.” — 12th Annual Pre-Kwanzaa Festival held by Cops Against Police Brutality, Newark, New Jersey, 12/11/04

“Do you want your children to die for this? The former Prime Minister, Netanyahu, before the war in Iraq, was patrolling the halls of congress lobbying American senators to send our children to die really for Israel. Since Israel's existence, American taxpayer dollars have contributed over $100 billion to maintain that state. And the neoconservative idea was to bring Bush totally in line with the ideas, the thinking, the policies of the Likud party in Israel.” — National Press Club, Washington, D.C., 5/3/04

“UN Resolution 687, article 14É not only says that Iraq must disarm, it says there must be no weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. But Israel has never been asked to disarm. That is why, Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction will force Israel to a table to bring about a resolve of the problem. But as long as Israel is superior in military might to the whole Arab world, she don't have to do nothing. And you remember when they slaughtered the Palestinians in Jenin, and the UN sent a team to go, Israel said you're not coming in here. That's thumbing your nose at the UN." Saviours' Day Speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/23/03 "They [Israel] wouldn't allow me to go to Jerusalem. If I had gone they might have stoned me. I didn't want to repeat history. I know they stoned Jesus. I know they've killed the prophets of God there." —Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/22/98

"I believe that for the small numbers of Jewish people in the United States, they exercise a tremendous amount of influence on the affairs of government. ... Mr. President, Mr. Clinton, instead of exercising the strength of a man whose country contributes at least $4 billion every year to the state of Israel, America has influence in Israel but is not using that influence in a constructive way, but, rather, pays lip service to the Palestinians while she bows to the dictates of Netanyahu and the strong political Jewish lobby." — Meet the Press interview, 4/14/97

ON DIALOGUE WITH JEWS

“So Jesse [Jackson] being from the hood he called New York “Hymie Town.” I don’t want to rehearse something that got him in trouble; I’ve been in trouble for thirty years now. But my point is, it’s a slang term to say that the Jewish people have great control and power in New York City, that’s all.”— Speech at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC, 11/11/17

“I tried this dialogue 30 years ago and I was invited on the Ted Koppel show to have a showdown with a man for the ADL…I said no, I would not want us to come on television to have a dialogue. I would rather us have the dialogue, and if the dialogue is successful, then we go before the television and say we resolved the problem. Now that’s an intelligent approach but 30 years have gone on now! So it can’t be done in no back room. It’s got to be done in the public where all the damage has been done to me and the Nation of Islam and what we represent. There will not be any backroom dialogue. It will be either in the public for the whole world to see, otherwise it is not going to be fruitful for us. We’ve got to end this once and for all, and I’m willing to pay with my life if you can find me lying!” — Interview on the Rock Newman Show, Washington, DC, 4/27/13

“So let’s have a showdown…Otherwise you’ll always follow me up, if I come on the show you’ll come behind me, ‘oh he’s a hater, he’s this.’ No! Let’s come out in the light. You know how cockroaches are when the light comes on. You know how rats are when the light comes on. They run for cover.” — Interview on the Rock Newman Show, Washington, DC, 4/27/13

“It is because of the power, influence and money of the Jewish community that makes Black people afraid to speak up for the hurt that we have received from the hands of some of their people, afraid to associate with those that they dislike.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/11/10

“Every black leader that spoke of economic development was charged with being an anti-Semite... Whenever a Black person look like they gonna step out of line a little bit, hit ‘em with that anti-Semitism, they get right back in line.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/11/10

"I want to sit down and dialogue with members of the Jewish community with no preconditions. That demand for me to apologize comes out of an arrogance that makes one feel that if I am critical of Jewish behavior relative to Black people, that all of a sudden I have to apologize for being critical...I don't think that I should have to apologize unless I am shown that there is something that I have said that is not correct. Then I would have no problem...to ask for forgiveness..." — Meet the Press interview, 10/12/97

"...I'm afraid that you [Jewish people] will come to regret the day that I offered you a chance to let us sit down together and dialogue and you, in your emotional reaction, rejected that offer...You will [regret it] because if my influence and growth and power in America does not diminish and it will not, by the help of God, then what benefit would it be to you not to sit down and dialogue with me when the racial problem is not getting any better..." — Fox News Sunday interview, 3/30/97

ON WHITES

“He [Elijah Muhammad] came to save us from the sins of white people that have been imposed on us since we have been under their rule. We didn’t have homosexuality in Africa, that’s not our tradition.” — 23rd Anniversary of the Million Man March/Holy Day of Atonement, 10/14/18

“Angry white people that hate your very shadow, soon and very soon, these police that are armed to the teeth, they come into our communities right now filled with hate for us.” — The Time and What Must Be Done, Part 3, 1/26/13

“God has come after the children of Israel. You are not now the children of God, you are the children of Israel. You are not made now in the image and likeness of God, you are made in the image and likeness of White people who have conquered you and mastered you and made you into themselves.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 10/3/10

“The architecture of white supremacy has never been brought to the table to be discussed. The architecture of white supremacy will have to be exposed.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 6/26/10

“It is difficult for white people to submit to black leadership because they were given dominion. And even though they act like they are submissive you have to be careful because they are always looking for a way to undermine any black man that rises in authority.” — Atlanta, Georgia, 6/26/10

"The white right is trying to set Barack up to be assassinated...Here are Christians praying for God to kill Barack Obama." — Saviours' Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 2/28/10

“I heard from a very reliable source that under that levee there was a 25 foot hole, which suggested that it may have been blown up, so that the water would destroy the black part of town, and where the whites lived, it would be dry.” — Remarks at Shelter for Hurricane Katrina Victims, Charlotte Coliseum, Charlotte, North Carolina, 9/12/05

“Katrina should have taught us that the government of the United States is not our friend. Katrina should have shown us the cold-hearted nature, not of white people, but the cold-hearted nature of the rulers. There are white people who want to see something good done. But they are hamstrung by white people who don't want to see something good done." — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/26/06 

“White people are potential humans…they haven’t evolved yet." — Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 3/18/00

ON THE U.S. GOVERNMENT

“The FBI has been the worst enemy of black advancement. Can you prove that Farrakhan? See the Jews have control over those agencies of government.” — Saviours’ Day speech, 2/25/18

“When you say, Mr. Trump, ‘America first,’ ask any Jew, even your son-in-law. America is never first, Israel is always first. And as long as Israel is first then whatever you think or plan will be in Israel before you leave the room in the White House. Mr. Trump, you have to extricate yourself from being controlled by any one of these.” — Saviours’ Day speech (part 2), 2/26/17

“We’re gonna bring you up to speed. The American government is under control of the Zionists.” — Remarks at Indianapolis Convention Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, 12/1/13

“Mr. Romney, he already went to Israel and bowed down. He went to Israel and wore out his knees, got a patch on his knees... Obama, he almost wore out his knees too. I mean he may not have a patch on his knee, but he was down there long enough to rub a little something in that knee. He told Israel, AIPAC, he told them, even though we’re in an economic downtown, don’t you worry because the money we’ve been giving to you, we’re going to give it to you again and add some more to it. If that ain’t deep knee bending, now I’m not making stuff up! We’re in bad shape brother!” — Holy Day of Atonement Keynote Address, Charlotte, North Carolina, 10/14/12

“When you don’t vote the way they think you should vote, there’s no such thing as forgiveness. They move to unseat you. Cynthia McKinney, brilliant sister, but she was not pro-Zionist, well she’s not in Congress… once you take an opposing position, you have to pay a price.” — #AskFarrakhan Town Hall Meeting, Chicago, Illinois, 9/26/12

“There is no doubt… [Obama is] surrounded by the people that are Zionist-controlled or Zionists.” — New York, New York, 6/15/2011

“The Jewish people…have made Louis Farrakhan the litmus test for any Black man or woman who would aspire to citywide office, statewide office, or national office. In order for any Black man or woman to get the support that they would need to ascend to political power, they have to denounce Louis Farrakhan.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/11/10

“Congress is so wrapped up and under the thumb of Jewish control and power, you don’t even have a Congressman that will vote, hardly, against anything that deals with Israel in a negative way. That’s just not gonna happen.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/11/10

“I’m talking about the U.S. government and the plots that they enact against Black politicians that they’re losing control over. They’ll come with some fake stuff, offering you this but there’s a camera, so that you will lose confidence in your Black leadership, who are only following the path of their White predecessors.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/26/09 

“I told him [Michael Jackson] I was going to the national press club and that I was going to talk to the world about the neoconservatives, most of whom are Zionists, and their program for a new American century where they were advising the government and Bush in particular. And the policies that were made during the Bush Administration were all out of this project for a new American century by the neoconservatives.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 7/26/09

“Why don't the members of Congress speak when they know that the things that Israel is doing will hurt them, and hurt America as well? It is because they are afraid that if they go against what is seemed to be beneficial to Israel, they will lose their position? That means that these people are no longer the representatives of the American people. They are the representatives of the money interests that they fear; that control them.” — Interview with WVON AM, Chicago, Illinois, 4/2/09

“When the people of Gaza were being slaughtered, the pro-Israeli lobby sent messages to the House and the Senate of words that they wanted them to use, gave them the language, and now you have bipartisan support. And there's not a vote that the pro-Israeli lobby wants that doesn't get bipartisan support. Why? Because the Israeli lobby controls the government of the United States of America.” — Saviours’ Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 3/1/09

“You cannot deny the pro-Israeli lobby and get reelected. Ask Cynthia McKinney. Ask David Hilliard. Ask our mayor in Oakland, California. Ask Percy, the former Senator. Ask Jimmy Carter. You can't criticize, you can't say nothing because if you do, you're branded as an anti-Semite.” — Saviours’ Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 3/1/09

“Why, U.S. Congress, will you not speak? It is because you fear a lobby that has money and influence that will turn you out of your seat? So you're terrorized. That's why you don't act for the American people that sent you to Congress. You are not their representative. You are the representative of the money and interests that have bought your soul.” — Saviours’ Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 3/1/09

“FEMA is too white to represent us and so is the Red Cross.” — Power Center, Houston, Texas, 9/11/05

“What is going on in the world is a battle between ‘theocracy’ and ‘democracy.’ ‘Theo’ and ‘cratis’ are Greek words. ‘Cratis’ in Greek means ‘rule.’ In Latin, it’s ‘craci.’ In English, you change the ‘I’ to a ‘y’— ‘cracy’ (rule). ‘Theo’ in Greek means ‘god.’ The Greek word is ‘demos’—demos cratis. In Latin, it’s demon craci. In English, you drop the ‘n,’ put a ‘y’ on the end, and you have democracy. ‘Democracy’ is ‘the rule of the people,’ but what kind of people? It’s the very opposite of theocracy. It’s the rule of a devil…. The enemy is plotting, through democracy, to make the whole world submit to so-called democratic values, so that the demons of the West can rule all the darker peoples of the world under ‘demo cracy.’” — 12th Annual Pre-Kwanzaa Festival held by Cops Against Police Brutality, Newark, New Jersey, 12/11/04

“A decree of death has been passed on America. The judgment of God has been rendered and she must be destroyed…” — New York Amsterdam News, New York, 8/9/97

ON THE LGBT COMMUNITY

“Brother Barack [Obama], under Jewish influence, trying to introduce same-sex marriage to African people, and the Africans say, ‘We don’t have nothing like that in our history. We can’t identify with that.’ Then the Western man says, ‘If you want this money from the World Bank or the IMF, you have to make a law that allows same-sex marriage.’ Look, brothers and sisters, this is satanic.” — Speech at Mosque Maryam, Chicago, Illinois, 5/27/18

"We see pimps with a cross around their neck. We see hustlers. We see adulterers, fornicators, lesbians, homosexuals. If you can’t preach what Christ says, then get the hell out of the pulpit. If you can’t stand up for what God says, then why are you trying to represent a God that you are misrepresenting?" — Saviours' Day speech, Rosemont, Illinois, 2/27/11

"You think you know Jesus Christ?... If you knew him, why is there so much drunkenness, so much drugs, so much fornication, so much adultery, so much homosexuality, so much lesbianism, so much murder, so much crime? And all of you got a cross around your neck proclaiming a man that hasn’t got nothing to do with the madness we do in his holy and righteous name." — Holy Day of Atonement, Memphis, Tennessee, 10/18/09

"Right now, among the Jews, there's division. Because some Jews want to sanctify by the law, gay and lesbian and same sex unions and to ordain gay and lesbian rabbis, while there are other Jews that want to stick by the religious law. The same thing in Christianity. We are being divided over moral issues and Satan has made immoral things fair seeming, so the house of religion is divided." — Interview with AllHipHop.com, 4/16/07

"I don’t hate Jews. I honor and respect those who try to live according to the teachings of the Torah, but you can’t criticize Jewish people. If you criticize them you are anti-Semitic. If you don’t agree with what they are doing, you are anti-Semitic. The Bible says, Revelations, those who say they are Jews and are not, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan. I don’t hear you preaching that full Gospel. You are afraid of consequences. But no man can say he’s a Jew and promote homosexuality. No man can say he’s a Jew and promote that which is against the commandments of God. No man can say he’s a Jew and run the despicable, degenerate movies. The filth and degenerate language." — Saviours' Day speech, Chicago, Illinois, 2/23/03
