FARRAKHAN: WHO ARE THE REAL CHILDREN OF ISRAEL?

FARRAKHAN: WHO ARE THE REAL CHILDREN OF ISRAEL? THE 64,000 DOLLAR QUESTION

By Fahim A. Knight-El

This Blog is about Minister Louis Farrakhan, Jews and the question of a secret relationship between Blacks and Jews, which came about sort of un-expectantly and it will cover three or four different themes that are directly and/or in directly related to the central theme titled, "Farrakhan: Who are the Real Children of Israel". Yet, each theme has an overall significance to the question that Minister Farrakhan raised and this writer will do his best to tie all these themes into one organized thought. (Reference: Louis Farrakhan: YouTube Clip; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWlZfcMdOaY).

This writer on October 31, 2009 at a public forum held at the Hayti Cultural Center in Durham met the Nation of Islam minister, (properly titled student minister) named Amon Muhammad of Durham, North Carolina who is the local representative of Minister Louis Farrakhan and Muhammad's Mosque number 34. This meeting turned out to be the beginning of a budding relationship (I must say, I truly like this young brother and I immediately offered to help him in his mission). This writer has had relationships with just about all the prior and previous ministers of Muhammad’s Mosque #34 and with many other Nation of Islam ministers throughout the country.

Thus, at that same forum, there was a young brother an academician named Dr. Devin Fergus (professor of history at Vanderbilt University) who authored a book titled, "Liberalism, Black Power, and the Making of American Politics 1965-1980" he was the keynote speaker at this forum that also featured Dr. Howard Fuller (Marquette University) who was a 1960s civil rights activist in Durham and founder of Malcolm X Liberation University (founded in 1969 now defunct), the group was commemorating the schools 4Oth year anniversary. There were other local spokespersons that had directly or in directly impacted the Civil Rights movement in Durham present on the dais as well. (Reference: Osha Gray Davidson: “The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South”).

However, Fuller no doubt, could have been the keynote speaker based on his activism background in North Carolina during the turbulent 1960s and his wealth of knowledge on grassroots African liberation movements. But nevertheless, professor Fergus presented this lackluster lecture, which lacked focus, scope and to say the least, it was outright boring. But over years this writer has come to the realization that most academician and university level intellectuals are better suited for the research environment more so than giving captivating public speeches and Fergus was no different. This is the comfort zone where they have the freedom to assess and evaluate ideas without the interference of a social setting that entails a give and take dialog. (Reference: Howard Fuller YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQFO1ABwis4&feature=related

Thus, to be quite honest, with my readers, I am of the opinion, that many brilliant and smart university level professors often can not adequately convey or articulate their theories in a synthesized manner where as laypersons and non-academics could receive the benefits from their intellectualism and analysis that might examine research topics that possess far reaching intellectual merit and scholarly implications. They are often prisoners of their own training and schooling in which the goal is to always work to put forth objective and non-bias evidence (this is not really a bad thing—it provides us with the necessary intellectual due diligence in which evidence can be counted and measured). This mindset often entraps the scholar into believing that unless he/she provides an overwhelmingly amount of inundated scholarly citations and references their work will be received with less scholarly credibility. (Reference: Carter G. Woodson; “Mis-Education of the Negro”).

These intellectuals are in constant search of positive affirming peer reviews in which the credibility of their published works hinge on and could often dictate how fast they move upward the tenure track. This lead them to be more concern with letting their audiences know that they understand the scientific method of research, as opposed to holding an audience attention—they weigh the audience down with meaningless statistical analysis, useless data and complex assessments.

However, Fergus research was well presented in the book and it was empirical (his writing skills was far superior to his skills as a public speaker and debater). No, doubt, this young brother did his homework, but he seemed to lack the ability to defend his research with the necessary confidence to ward off his critics and bring intellectual credibility to a really good book. This writer during the Question and Answer period felt that Dr. Fergus in his presentation had ignored the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's contribution to Black Nationalism and he therefore raised the question of why in his address that he omitted the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's work and legacy relative to this topic? My question perhaps resonated with a few of the Nation of Islam members who were in the attendance on that day and they were most appreciative that I had raised that question. (Reference: Devin Fergus; "Liberalism, Black Power, and the Making of American Politics 1965-1980").

Let me fast forward a bit to June 24, 2010, I text Minister Amon Muhammad about some business and he asked that I meet him at Muhammad's Mosque. He invited me in and started telling me about an upcoming speech that Minister Farrakhan was to deliver in Atlanta, Georgia titled, "Who are the Real Children of Israel?”

Minister Muhammad seemed very excited that Minister Farrakhan would be dealing with such controversial topic and he stated, "once and for all Minister Farrakhan is going to pull the cover off them Jews" (Minister Muhammad statement implied and gave inference that Minister Farrakhan's speech would be more rooted in exposing the political chicanery of a certain segment of Jews, which have manipulated the political, economic and social systems of humanity. This writer knew that in the scheme of the larger debate Minister Farrakhan’s argument would be rooted in the “The Protocols of the Learnt Elders of Zion” (although he never mentioned this book) because no other treatise lays out the Zionist Jewish Cabal and political world conspiracy than the minds that put forth this document (but as a journalist, let me be fair to my readers there are many who view the “Jewish Protocols” as a hoax, fraud and fabricated). But Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam have many allies who believe that the “Jewish Protocols” are very much real and there is plenty of evidence to prove that this covert conspiratorial plan is very much in motion.

Farrakhan stated: “Who are The Draftsmen, and The Architects, of such an Idea that has dominated our Planet for the last 4,000 years? Our Historical Research Department has studied from the scholarship of Jewish historians, scholars and rabbis; and we have published Volume No. 2 of “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.” And in it, you will discover The Architecture, and The Architect.”
“I sent this book, and another one that is printed called “Jews Selling Blacks,” to Mr. Abraham Foxman of B'nai B'rith, and to all the leaders of the major Jewish organizations. I sent it to President Obama, to Rahm Emanuel, to David Axelrod, to Timothy Geithner, to Larry Summers, to Ben Bernanke; to all the people that should know what was done to us, and can no longer hide. That is why Jesus said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”

“What truth shall you know? If you are not yet free—and you are not!—then you do not yet know the truth that Jesus was talking about, that would free you from your Open Enemy, awaken you, cleanse you, and reconnect you to The God Who has come for your and my salvation”. (Reference: Louis Farrakhan’s Speech, “Who Are the Real Children of Israel?” Atlanta, Georgia; June 26, 2010. (Compact Disc).

I really do not think that Minister Farrakhan is overly concern about the Caucasian Jews versus African Hebrew Israelite debate in terms of overall theology (Minister Farrakhan knows quite well the history of the Ashkenazi and Khazar Jews and know that they are not the original inhabitants of Israel). He also knows that the Sephardic Jew is a Semitic people and he knows that the Arabs are a Semitic people (this fact alone kind of discombobulates this hold notion that he is anti-Semitic). This writer as he constructed this article has intentionally not read the Zionist critiques of Minister Farrakhan’s Atlanta speech because he wanted to be objective as possible and not be swayed by the winds of emotions, but to raise the question “Who are the Real Children of Israel?” (Reference: Arthur Koestler; “The Thirteenth Tribe”).

Surely would lead to some Jews dismissing Minister Farrakhan speech as anti-Semitism (this charge ordinarily is used to silence Jewish critics and it absorbs the criteria of proof), only because he dared to raise the question. Minister Farrakhan stated: “I asked the question: “Who Are The Real Children of Israel?” The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said that Almighty God Allah revealed to him that the Black people of America are The Real Children of Israel. And we are The Choice of God; and that unto us He will deliver His Promise.”

“This question says that somebody has usurped our position. This question says that somebody has taken The Promise of God to the Children of Israel, and claimed it for themselves. But those of you who are scholars of Christianity, Judaism and Islam: If you can disprove this, then I'll pay with my life for lying.”

“To all of those who feel that the Children of Israel are over in that place they call “Israel”: You are mistaken. To the Christian Right, who feel that if you bless that Israel you will be blessed: For over 60 years, that nation has not been blessed!” (Reference: Louis Farrakhan’s Speech, “Who Are the Real Children of Israel?” Atlanta, Georgia; June 26, 2010. (Compact Disc).

This much of the argument is rather clear in Minister Farrakhan’s worldview. But Minister Farrakhan believes that there is a deceptive power paradigm (Elitist Invisible Cabal) which has held black people (and perhaps the globe) in an economic stranglehold since their sojourn in America (no doubt he perceives something even a lot more sinister than just a stolen religious identity). (Reference: Ashahed M. Muhammad: “The Synagogue of Satan”).

The Nation of Islam’s Historical Research Department published in 1991, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” in which the book reveals that there were a much larger percentage of Jewish slave merchants, financiers —plantation owners, slave brokers and traders than originally acknowledged—the research maintained that Jews perhaps were the main principals in the Transatlantic Slave Trade and Middle Passage, but their involvement had been systematically condensed to minuscule roles and it even maintained that many of the Jewish slave merchants adopted Gentile names to shield their identity. What made the Nation of Islam’s research attractive was that they used Jewish sources to validate their historical argument. The book cited hundreds of Jewish references. (Reference: The Nation of Islam’s Historical Research Department; “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews”).

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in 1994 countered the Nation of Islam Historical Research Department with a book written by one of their own Jewish scholars, Dr. Harold Brackman, who authored a book titled, “Ministry of Lies, The Truth Behind: The Nation of Islam’s The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” in which Brackman’s work represented the antithesis to the Nation of Islam’s treatise. Brackman attempted to attack the credibility of the Nation of Islam scholarship by questioning the demographics of the study and maintained that the research was overly exaggerated and at the basis was a deep seated anti-Semitic agenda. (Reference: Harold Brackman; “Ministry of Lies, The Truth Behind: The Nation of Islam’s The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews”).

The book “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” provoked a sizable amount of controversy and this writer can remember the Harvard University ‘Negro’ professor Dr. Henry Louis ‘Skip’ Gates paid for a full page ad in the “New York Times” denouncing and repudiating the book “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” as a vile form of anti-Semitism. Perhaps there was no greater fall out than the controversy that ensued a speech delivered at Kean College in Union, New Jersey by Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad on November 29, 1993. Dr. Muhammad referred to himself as “Farrakhan’s Flamethrower” (he without a doubt was a fiery orator and represented the most militant wing of Nation of Islam) and throughout the Kean College speech, which was also titled, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews”; he was critical of the pope, Jews, homosexuals, Caucasians, Negro leadership, etc., (the Jews react swiftly and promptly depicting Dr. Muhammad’s speech as homophobic, hate speech, racist, and anti-Semitic). (Reference: Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad; Kean College Speech: “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews”; November 29, 1993; (audio cassette tape).

It would be this speech that led to Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad being suspended as a minister and spokesperson for the Nation of Islam and eventually led to him being ousted from the Nation of Islam (this writer in 1994, was critical of the Nation of Islam’s position against Dr. Muhammad because of a policy of double standard). There was also an assassination attempt on the life of Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad (this writer thinks the assassinator James Edward Best was only an agent provocateur and there were other players). Abraham Foxman of the Anti Defamation League (ADL) on January 16, 1994, also paid for a full page advertisement in the “New York Times” titled, “Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam Claim They are Moving Toward Moderation and Increased Tolerance. You Decide” in which the ad pulled out of context excerpts of Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad’s Kean College speech in order to make the case that the Nation of Islam was an anti-Semitic organization. The United States Senate on February 2, 1994 voted 97-0 condemning and censoring Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad and also on February 23, 1994, the House of Representatives voted 364-34 putting forth a resolution denouncing Dr. Muhammad’s speech as “hate speech”.

Minister Farrakhan eventually repudiated his long time friend and student, Dr. Muhammad stating he agreed with truths, that Minister Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad spoke, but rebuked him for the manner of which he represented the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (Minister Farrakhan disagreed with Dr. Muhammad’s language and perhaps some of the negative vulgarity used throughout the Kean College speech). But there were Nation of Islam hardliners who agreed with Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad and many defected with Dr. Muhammad and joined the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. This writer has read over Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz and the Black Panther Party official statement relative to Dr. Muhammad’s death. They cited medical explanation and stayed clear of foul play as the cause of Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad’s death, but there is no doubt in this researcher’s mind that Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad was murdered and there were many conspirators working in collaboration and on various levels (agent provocateurs had infiltrated Dr. Muhammad’s inner circle). My question is who killed Minister Khallid Abdul Muhammad? This history still remains one of the most recent painful chapters in the history of the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party.

Minister Amon Muhammad started telling me that we were actually living in the biblical book of Acts and he was quoting scripture and paralleling Minister Farrakhan's history to those of the Apostle Paul. Then the secretary of the Mosque, Brother Torrance Muhammad also delved into the discussion of what he thought Minister Farrakhan's motive was for tackling this subject. Brother Torrance cell phone goes off and he answered the call and this left us two black coffee scientists discussing, "Who are the Real Children of Israel?"

I was pushed for time, but their energy and enthusiasm captivated my attention (they like most members of the Nation of Islam are very fond of the leader). This writer too was asking himself, why was Minister Farrakhan at this time in space and history feeling like it was necessary to address a topic like "Who Are The Real Children of Israel?" If we view and accept the topic at face value, it was surely to be rooted in theological and religious dogma, this would lead one to believe that the objective of the subject matter would be to provide a messianic interpretation of the Biblical genealogy relative to the seed of Abraham.

Ella J. Hughley in the book titled, “The Truth About Black Biblical Hebrew-Israelites (Jews)”) stated, :The Bible give reliable evidence of the ancestry of the ancient Hebrew-Israelites and prophets. The Biblical history of the ancient black Hebrews begins in Genesis 11:10, where the genealogy of Shem is recorded, and continues throughout the entire Old Testament. Abraham, the first Hebrew (Genesis 14: 13), was a descendent of Shem. Nimrod, the grandson of Ham, founded the city in which Abraham was born, namely Ur, which is in the country of Chaldea (known also as Mesopotamia), of which Babylon was the capital. The ancestry of the Israelites stems from Abraham, who was black. We know that Abraham was black because he was born in the city founded by the black Nimrod, the grandson of Ham (Genesis 10: 8-10). ‘Babel’ mentioned in verse 10, is ‘Babylon’. The Bible dictionary defines Ham, Cush, and Nimrod as black men. The ancient name of Egypt is Mizraim.” (Reference: Ella J. Hughley; “The Truth About Black Biblical Hebrew-Israelites (Jews)”; p. 11).

This writer wondered, what was Minister Louis Farrakhan objective for raising this question and, where will the answers to the question lead black people and how will this question impact present day Black-Jewish relations? The laws of physics tells us that two physical objects can not occupy the same space at the same time (translate to mean that either Jews are those people written of in the book and/or the African Hebrews are those people). If Minister Farrakhan is raising the question, "Who are the Real Children of Israel?" He is automatically implying that someone's ethno-religious identity has been stolen and usurped by a charlatan. (Reference: Malachi Z. York (Al-Imam Al-Haadi Al-Mahi); “This is the Number of the Beast Leviathan: 666”).

Farrakhan stated: “The Jewish people claim that this is talking about them, but other than the Bible, there is no historical record of anybody named “Jews,” in bondage in Egypt for 400 years. There is no historical record of their suffering in bondage like that. Now, they were freed from a “bondage,” all right—but that was in the hills and cavesides of Europe! “

“These people have no legitimate connection to The Holy Land; they didn't come into existence in The Holy Land. They came into existence, as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that Allah taught him, on the Island of Pelan; or, as it is written in the Book of Revelation, “Patmos.” They came back to the Holy Land after 600 years of grafting them from Black into “White.” (Reference: Louis Farrakhan’s Speech, “Who Are the Real Children of Israel?” Atlanta, Georgia; June 26, 2010. (Compact Disc).

This writer as a student of religion, theology and history does know that the original people that occupied Egypt and Israel were not white and Caucasian. Moreover, the original Hebrew Israelites were African and Nubian (the Semites came much later). Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan in his book titled, "The Black man of the Nile and his Family" explores the racial-ethnic identity of the original Jews called the Falasha Jews located in Kush (Ethiopia) who were practicing a formalized version Judaism long before the Biblical prophets of Abraham and Moses. These African Jews predated the writings of the Torah and Talmud. They even predated the twelve tribes of Judah. (Reference: Yosef Ben Jochannan; "The Black man of the Nile and his Family").

Jose V. Malcioln in his book titled, “African Origins of Modern Judaism” stated: “The history of the Jews is the history of the Hebrews. It is also a history interwoven with religion. The story of the Jews is based on the history and religion of the Hebrews. Neither can be related without mention or support of the other. James Parker said, ‘The history of the Jews is not the history of a race; for Jews were not of pure stock at the beginning of their story, and in their dispersions their borrowings have been physical as well as intellectual and spiritual.” (Reference: Jose V. Malcioln; “African Origins of Modern Judaism”; p. 1).

Perhaps Minister Farrakhan felt that at the base of the social, political and economic dilemma of black people was a theological discrepancy, which is at the root of a prophetic identity that has been stolen by an imposter. Minister Farrakhan quotes the Bible as saying: “In this Book of Genesis, we get lots of pictures of God, and His Promise. In Chapter 15, God is talking to Abram: “Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them and shall afflict them 400 years. But after that time”—God is speaking—“I will come! And I will judge that nation which they shall serve. And afterwards, shall they come out with great substance. And go to their fathers in peace, and be buried in a good old age.” (Reference: Louis Farrakhan’s Speech, “Who Are the Real Children of Israel?” Atlanta, Georgia; June 26, 2010. (Compact Disc).

I think Minister Farrakhan motive went even deeper than the biblical tale of Esau and Jacob (the wrestling of two brothers in the womb for birth rights). It was almost as though, he was going to intentionally force a showdown between himself (Allah’s Divine Reminder on earth) with some of the most powerful Jewish entities on earth and this writer believes that Minister Farrakhan believes that this was the only method, strategy and tactic left to free black people from these hidden forces.

The subject matter in of itself, is really an old debate because this writer first heard in 1970s the Black Hebrew Israelite leader Yahweh Ben Yahweh (Nation of Yahweh) dismantle the genetic, racial and nationality of those who claimed to be the religious and ethnic Israelites written about in Torah (Old Testament Bible) and told us that the “World’s Best Kept Secret, was that you were not a Negro”. Also this writer had heard Ben Ammi (Ben Ammi Ben-Israel) leader of the Original Hebrew Israelite nation who migrated to Dimona, Israel in the late 1960s proclaimed that we were that lost tribe of Israel and that the African Hebrew Israelites were the original Jews spoken of in Torah. (Reference: Ben Ammi: “God the Black Man, and Truth”).

But let me try to bring my readers back to my topic which is titled, "Farrakhan: “Who Are The Real Children of Israel?”" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3EJn54RlgQ&feature=player_embedded. Perhaps this article was formulating in my mind even prior to Minister Farrakhan's speech delivered in Atlanta on June 26.

I had an interesting conversation with a former fellow college classmate of mine named Glen Harris some eight months prior to Minister Farrakhan speech in which we were both undergraduate students together who graduated out of the same academic department. Harris went on to receive a Ph.D in history from Florida State University and now is on the faculty at University North Carolina at Wilmington. Thus as young undergraduates we always had provocative debates about various aspects of the black experience. Dr. Harris told me that his intellectual specialty was "Black-Jewish Relations" and I immediately asked him what was his perspective on the Nation of Islam's book titled, "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews". He immediately answered that it was poorly researched, of course over the years I had become accustomed to this response, in particular from black academicians. This writer challenged his friend Dr. Harris to be a little more specific he just stated that the scholarship was shoddy. This writer proceeded to tell him that the book, "Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews" had over 1,250 references and citations which was clear evidence that the Nation of Islam's Historical Research Department had done a fair job in the area of documentation. I was left with the impression that this so-called expert on Black-Jewish relationship had not read book and/or he had bought into the propaganda that the book was anti-Semitic. Most scholars black and white are very fearful of being labeled anti-Semitic and will not render any balance critique of Jewish history or behavior. (Reference: Louis Farrakhan: YouTube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIsHUaetKto&feature=related

Dr. Harris dismissal of the book was more rooted in a controversy that had existed between a segment of Jews and Minister Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam that came to fruition during the Reverend Jesse Jackson’s run for the U.S. presidency in 1984. Reverend Jackson was accused of making a racial slur in a private conversation in the presences of a black Washington Post reporter named Milton Coleman, thus referring to New York as "Hymie Town". Coleman exposed Reverend Jackson's so-called off the record remarks and the Anti Defamation League (ADL) and other rightwing Jewish organizations and leaders declared that Reverend Jesse Jackson was anti-Semitic (this charge led to the derailment of Jackson’s symbolic run for president of the United States. (Reference: Dennis Walker: "Islam and the Search For African American Nationhood; Elijah Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam”).

Minister Farrakhan was one of chief organizers and spokesperson for Jackson's presidential campaign and he immediately came to Reverend Jackson's defense against the radical Jewish attacks. These chain of events have led to Farrakhan and Jews having an antagonistic and contentious relationship for over two decades. Minister Farrakhan was ridiculed and besmirched by the media and was even called the "new Hitler". He was accused of referring to Judaism as a "gutter religion" and/or “dirty religion”, but Minister Farrakhan has stated over and over again, that his words were taking out of context by those who control the propaganda machines. (Reference: A. Marshall: “Louis Farrakhan Made In America”).

The Atlanta speech, “Who are the Real Children of Israel? And the revealing of the new book and second volume, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews: How Jews Gained Control Over Black American Economy” Volume 2 would be perhaps as equally controversial as the first volume. No, doubt this new volume was a historical indictment and Minister Farrakhan talked extensively about Black slavery and how this 310 years forced economic arrangement continued to benefit Jews long after Chattel slavery ended in 1865. Minister Farrakhan stated: “All of our entertainers; see, we have the talent; and the Jews have the expertise. They attach themselves to our talent: They are the managers, the agents; and they are the accountants. That's why our Black artists loved fame, and got fame—but died poor, because somebody else got their money, while the Jews sent their children to the finest schools, and were able to continue to rule, while you pass on nothing to your children but the legacy of your fame, and nothing else”. (Reference: Louis Farrakhan’s Speech, “Who Are the Real Children of Israel?” Atlanta, Georgia; June 26, 2010. (Compact Disc).

Minister Farrakhan traced how black slaves during Chattel Slavery (1555-1865) were forced to pick cotton in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, etc., and how international financiers set up banking housing along the routes of slavery and its relative interest to the commodity of cotton. The Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Kuhn Loeb, Lehman Brothers, Lazard Freres, Goldman Sachs, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff, Harriman, etc. These are just a few families who are guilty of direct involvement in the Triangle Slave Trade and their present day inordinate amount of wealth is tied to the greatest and most prosperous commodity in the history of humanity—the African slave.

Minister Farrakhan stated: “The South became the leader in production of cotton; and The Delta in Mississippi area was the greatest cotton producing part of the Earth. Cotton was then what oil is now! The largest producer of oil in the world are the rich ones; and the strategic interests of America means in order for them to rule, they have to link with where the oil is coming from, and take it, or maneuver to get it. But they must have oil.”

“In the time of Slavery, it was cotton; and it's interesting that the cotton would come down The Mississippi River to New Orleans, to The Gulf; from Biloxi, Mississippi; and from Mobile, Alabama. The cotton would come down, and go up to New York, where the brethren of the Jewish people in the South, in the North, were the masters of the needle trades. And they had their brothers, also, in the South taking the lint from the cotton, and producing cloth through weaving.”

“But these were Jewish people owning the land: They were the majority; they were the merchants, they were the traders. They knew how to hook-up with their brethren in the North; and they would send raw cotton to the mills in England—in Manchester, Leeds, and Bristol; and the British would turn it into cloth, and then sell it all over the world!”

“So from cotton, the South became rich! From cotton, it fueled the Industrial Revolution in the North! From cotton, the Rothschilds became rich! From cotton, the Lehman Brothers became rich!” (Reference: Louis Farrakhan’s Speech, “Who Are the Real Children of Israel?” Atlanta, Georgia; June 26, 2010. (Compact Disc).

There were no children of Israel, there was no Abraham, there was no Isaac, Adam, Eve, none of that crap. So for farrakhan to say that blacks are the lost children of Israel or the real children of israel is fallacy. The bible is a book based on the zodiac, it's characters are based on the zodiac. As mentioned in your article there are no historical records of Jews/Hebrews being in bondage in Egypt, nor are there credible records of Jews/Hebrews outside the bible and quran. It's fiction like little red riding hood, the 3 little pigs, etc. Farrakhan needs to keep enforcing the spell of sleep, by saying Negros are jews/hebrews/arabs or any of those biblical characterizations to justify him being "minister". We are "Africans" always was, always will be; regardless of where we migrated to, or were kidnapped and brought. Hebrew is an action verb and means to cross over, same as Arab it means to roam it's an action verb. These are not nationalities they are acting verbs. Stop the fiction, stop the madness we are don't need it in this day and time.

I do not think your perspective will get very far even with African people; although there are aspects of your perspective that I agree with and some of those points are valid. Thus, I am very familiar with your argument in which I have dedicated three extensive articles on my blog to that particular argument. Yet, leaders like Minister Farrakhan serve a purpose and I am not willing to throw him away just because he professes Islam. No, doubt organized religion has its faults and shortcomings, but often we go through these various religious paths out of tradition, but some of us grow and develop to embrace spiritually and our link to the universal laws becomes inevitable. I do not think you can seriously organized black people around the concept that you are advocating because our collective experience is, what it is. I must say that I can appreciate aspects of Minister Farrakhan's teachings and there are many more reactionary forces out there that work against our political, economic, social and spiritual interest. I am more interested in building alliance and finding common ground; not ready to discard allies because of their chosen faith traditions.

IF, Israel wanted peace, it would FLOOD Concentration Camp GAZA with food and healthy economic activity. Did America launch massive assaults and shoot Black American Women and Children dead in the streets or use Jet Fighters and launch Artillery and Missiles into CIVILIAN areas? NO! Israel does so because Israel wants Ethnic Cleansing, NOT peace. Where is Israel's Recognition of the PALESTINIAN'S RIGHT to EXIST!? Israel demands the Palestinians "repudiate" this and that ...Does Israel REPUDIATE the TORAH???? Israel was White RACIST, APARTHEID, South Africa's ONLY ally, trading weapons, torture techniques, NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY, with them. Today Israel continues Racist APARTHEID with it's wall. Israel enforces laws that are straight out of Nazi Germany such as Palestinians must have different colored ID cards and license plates, JUST like the yellow stars the Jews WAIL about having to wear. Palestinians have to use separate roads, IDENTICAL to Black OR Whites Only drinking faucets.
Israel and South Africa were virtually twinned as military allies for Pretoria helped supply Israel militarily in the immediacy of its 1973 setback and Israel came to support apartheid South Africa at the height of sanctions with weaponry and technology – from naval ships and the conversion of supersonic fighter planes to assistance in building six nuclear bombs and the creation of a thriving arms industry. Israel resembles apartheid South Africa at its zenith – even surpassing its brutality, house demolitions, removal of communities, targeted assassinations, massacres, imprisonment and torture of its opponents and the aggression against neighbouring states.
Israel just PRETENDS to care about African Americans (but look how Israel treats Blacks at home), so they can STEAL the taxdollars that SHOULD have been repairing schools and infrastructure and providing police protection in the Cities. Year after year BILLIONS of African American Tax dollars buy more APARTHEID-suppression for the NATIVE PEOPLE of PALESTINE instead of improving life for the Black American People who earned those dollars.

“The Jews took Israel from the Arabs after the Arabs had lived there for a thousand years. Israel like South Africa, is an apartheid state” (Rand Daily Mail, 23 Novemeber 1961). Those were not the words of Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Tutu or Ruth First, but were uttered by none other than the architect of apartheid itself, racist Prime Minister, Dr. Hendrik Verwoerd.

Article 7(1)(j) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court calls apartheid a crime, stating:

“For the purpose of this Statute, (a) ‘crime against humanity’ means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:

Let me first deal with this nonsense about technical grammar. This is often a decoy and distraction, which to focus ones attention away from the real issues and content that is presented (this ploy absolves the debate). I am very familiar with these tactics, but you notice the allege English teacher did not address the content of the subject matter. This person claims to be a English teacher as though that is supposed to give them credibility and authority over the English language. Yet, American education is in a dismal predicament and is faltering relative to China, Japan, India, etc. (who do we blame educators like Mr/Ms. English teacher or the students?) I think your concern should be finding innovative educational methods, which to improve the quality of education within the United States. Perhaps he/she is critiquing my article from a Eurocentric perspective and expect African people who were rob of their LANGUAGE, CULTURE, RELIGION, MORES, FOLKWAYS (and most of all rob of the knowledge of self)—we have no respect for the slave master's language or culture—the criminal act of Chattel Slavery (1555-1865) made us "black Englishmen" and the ex-slave master's children is still demanded that we master his bastardized language even 2010 (if this is not the epitome of cultural arrogance) and after the greatest criminal act ever recorded in human history was imposed on 50 million Africans. Our people civilized him and brought him out of the hills and cave sides of Europe 6,000 years ago. Our people of Kemet (Egypt), the Nubians gave civilization to humanity (including paper, language and writing). Now, lets debate the merit of the article and stop this foolishness. Thus, as stated above I am familiar with these type ploys, it is part of their strategy and tactic. I do not know why I am dignifying this comment.
