Louis Farrakhan Blames 9/11 Attacks on ‘Zionist Jews’

The Anti-Defamation League condemned Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam leader, as the “leading anti-Semite in America” after a speech in which he blamed “Israelis and Zionist Jews” for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

 

Farrakhan, who has a long history of anti-Semitic remarks, delivered his speech Sunday in Chicago as part of his Saviors Day 2015 sermon. Farrakhan’s religious group Nation of Islam is labeled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Farrakhan left the group in 2007 due to health problems but has continued to give public speeches promoting anti-Semitic claims in recent years.

 

In his speech Farrakhan said that “It is now becoming apparent that there were many Israelis and Zionist Jews in the key roles of the 9/11 attacks… We’re dealing with thieves and liars and murderers.”

“Hitler Was Right”

An Israeli traveler was “shocked” to find mugs carrying the picture of Adolf Hitler and decorated with swastikas in a souvenir shop in Bulgaria. She later realized the shop was not only one carrying the National Socialist paraphernalia, and found similar trinkets in other shops on the same street.

The traveler, daughter of a holocaust survivor, asked the cashier if selling such items was not forbidden, to which she said the clerk had replied: “What’s wrong with that? Hitler was right.”

First Paris, Now Britain

Not long after a Jewish journalist was cursed and spat on as he walked the streets of Paris wearing a yarmulke, another Jewish reporter faced similar antisemitic abuse in Britain while donning the religious skullcap.

British journalist Jonathan Kalmus said he was shocked by the anti-Jewish harassment he received while wearing a yarmulke. He expected to walk for hours without being bothered, but instead “I was left speechless that antisemitism is so obvious.”

“No one could accuse me of targeting Muslim neighborhoods to provoke a reaction. This was the center of an ordinary English city and I was minding my own business,” he added. “No one could accuse me of wearing something provocative or political. A Jewish person or any peaceful person walking in a British street anywhere, let alone a city center, should be welcome.”

Kalmus added that many people were content to ignore it. They heard the discriminatory remarks being hurled at Kalmus and were caught on camera turning their backs to the abuse taking place in front of them. Kalmus noted, “When someone spat on my back no one stopped to intervene.”

Germany refuses to label BDS as anti-Semitic

Germany has rejected a definition of anti-Semitism that labels the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) as anti-Semitic. The Merkel administration explained that “there does not exist a general academic definition” of anti-Semitism.

The German government said it defined anti-Semitism, as “political, social, racist and religious” hostility toward Jews. The Merkel administration claimed it was not aware that the office of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights took down the modern working definition of anti-Semitism from its website in late 2013.
