Wicked, Zionist so-called Jews have been attacking the Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan for nearly forty years and 2018 was a continuation of that assault. But as the year closed, Minister Farrakhan boldly called for a “showdown” with his Jewish critics and detractors during a major address at Mosque Maryam in Chicago.
The Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and others falsely labeled the beloved leader anti-Semitic but have not proven their claims. Min. Farrakhan is challenging them to bring their proof:
“A showdown! Why not? We’re ready to die for what we believe! So, come on out Mr. (Jonathan) Greenblatt of the ADL and bring Mr. (Abraham) Foxman with you. Come on out Alan Dershowitz. You that say we are haters and anti-Semites,” he said.
“Come on out from your hiding place. Leave your n—–s at home! Come on out! You think that the Nation is only Louis Farrakhan? You think that I’m the only one that can battle this enemy and beat him down? We’ve got stars here! Come on out, since you love to say we are the haters, come on out and prove it,” Minister Farrakhan continued.
Alan Dershowitz, a defender of President Trump and frequent Zionist commentator, declined Minister Farrakhan’s invitation to publicly face Nation of Islam scholars and prove the charges he and other prominent Jewish leaders level at him and the Nation of Islam. Except for Mr. Dershowitz’s public response, the silence has been deafening.
“That’s what lets us know there is no interest in coming to any kind of agreement on the basis of the truth,” said Student Minister Demetric Muhammad of Muhammad Mosque No. 55 and a member of the Nation of Islam Research Group.
“That also indicates that the labeling of the Minister as an anti-Semite is a political trick. It’s a ruse, as already attested to by former education minister from Israel Shulamit Aloni,” Demetric Muhammad said. She revealed that accusations of anti-Semitism are a political trick used to tar those who disagree with the policies of Israel or activity of the Jewish community.
The enemies’ strategy has been a formal refusal to even allow Minister Farrakhan a platform to express his views, observed Demetric Muhammad. They cannot contend with the truth that he speaks so their goal is to eliminate and deny him any platform to speak the truth. That includes blocking him from speaking at universities, with calls to have his Twitter account, Facebook and YouTube pages taken down.
“We have a lot of work to do to beat back the charge of anti-Semitism, and this is why the Minister is calling for not just a show down, but a campaign for the defense of the truth and the defense of himself, because this ‘no-platform’ is essentially a blockade against the message of the Minister and to the degree that it has been effective, there are a lot of pockets in the American public who have never heard of Minister Farrakhan, so it does carry or have a great deal of effectiveness,” stated Demetric Muhammad.
By the same token, he said, the Jews’ “no platform strategy” is not as effective as they would like. “We know this because of the visceral reaction to the Minister’s presence at the funeral of Aretha Franklin,” Demetric Muhammad said.
Articles and comments asking “Why are we still dealing with Louis Farrakhan,” sprang up, he said. Jews were outraged over Minister Farrakhan’s mere presence at the August commemoration of the life and legacy of the great songbird Aretha Franklin, he said.
From Saviours’ Day in February 2018, the Nation of Islam’s commemoration of the birth of Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Madhi of the Muslims and the Messiah of the Christians, to the Holy Day of Atonement commemorating the 23rd anniversary of the Million March, these enemies have viciously defamed and attacked Minister Farrakhan. Yet, as his many supporters in and out of the Nation of Islam have noted, they not dare accept his challenge to prove one word he’s taught from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad false.
“They don’t have the courage to debate the Minister directly,” a longtime activist told The Final Call. “They can have diplomacy with Kim Jong Un, Putin and MBS (Saudi Arabia’s Muhammad Bin Salman) but somehow sitting down with the Minister who’s never harmed a hair on anyone’s head, is inconceivable.”
The activist stated, Minister Farrakhan’s enemies even normalize crimes of President Donald Trump and his cronies but refuse to debate the Minister, adult-to-adult, free person-to-free person? “They avoid him. Instead, they pick off African American leadership one by one, thus making a self-fulfilling prophecy of their worst fear: the Minister as the only African American leader left standing,” the activist continued.
As the attacks against Minister Farrakhan intensified this year, so did an escalation of responses by his supporters and non-members of the Nation of Islam.
Demetric Muhammad saluted Dr. Boyce Watkins, author, economist, educator, and gives credit to activist and Women’s March co-leader Tamika Mallory as well as Dr. Marc Lamont Hill and comedian Corey Holcomb, who said Minister Farrakhan saved his life.
Their words documented in Demetric Muhammad’s book, “Who Do They Say I Am,” are offered as vindication of the Minister in the court of public opinion, he said.
“They come from a whole wide diverse array of prominent people—some Black, some White, some gay, some straight, some Muslim, some Christian, some Jewish, but these are their candid, unrehearsed, unbought reactions to the leadership of Minister Louis Farrakhan and they’re very eye-opening,” Demetric Muhammad stated.
