Louis Farrakhan, winner of Gaddafi Prize, calls Jews "Satan"

From JPost:
Nation of Islam leader says his comments on Jews are meant "to pull the cover off Satan" and "Zionists dominate the US government and banks."

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said Jews and Zionists are "trying to push the US into war" and are a cover for Satan, at the group's annual meeting near Chicago on Tuesday.

“President Obama," Farrakhan said, "if you allow the Zionists to push you, to mount a military offensive against Gaddafi and you go in and kill him and his sons as you did with Saddam Hussein and his sons, I’m warning you this is a Libyan problem, let the Libyans solve their problem among themselves.” Farrakhan called Muammar Gaddafi "my brother" and "my friend."

He also accused American Zionists of attempting to push Israel into war with Iran, adding that "Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America and her banking system."

One panel at the conference, titled "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews," claimed that Jews were disproportionately involved in the slave trade and accused them of controlling the media.

“Some of you think that I’m just somebody who’s got something out for the Jewish people," Farrakhan said. "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.”
He also said "The Black people of America are the real children of Israel."

So how many anti-semitic motifs did Farrakhan manage to cram into his speech?

  • Jews control the banks
  • Jews control the government
  • Jews push other countries into fighting their wars for them
  • Jews control the media
  • Jews were responsible for the slave trade
  • Jews are Satan
  • Jews are deceptive
  • Jews aren't really Jews

Not bad!

Farrakhan was the 1996 winner of the Al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights, which boasts such luminaries as Holocaust-denier Roger Garaudy, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The keynote was over 4 hours long. Who wants to watch it and post at what times the good parts are?
