<ul><li>Declaration of Louis Farrakhan on Jews, Nazis and the Holocaust : </li></ul><ul><li>- « You see, everybody always talk about Hitler exterminating 6 million Jews...but don’t nobody ever asked what did they do to Hitler? What did they do to them folks? They went in there, in Germany, the way they do everywhere they go, and they supplanted, they usurped, they turned around, and a German, in his own country, would almost have to go to a Jew to get money. They had undermined the very fabric of the society” </li></ul><ul><li>- “German Jews financed Hitler right here in America...International bankers financed Hitler and poor Jews died while big Jews were at the root of what you call the Holocaust...Little Jews died while big Jews made money. Little Jews were being turned into soap while big Jews washed themselves with it. Jews were playing violin, Jews were playing music, while other Jews were marching into the gas chambers....” </li></ul>

And the same year they set up the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai Brith...It could be a coincidence...[I want] to see Black intellectuals free...I want to see them not controlled by members of the Jewish community. </li></ul>

Our lessons talk about the bloodsuckers of the poor in the Supreme Wisdom of the Nation of Islam. It's that old no-good Jew, that old imposter Jew, that old hooked-nose, bagel-eating, lox-eating, Johnny-come-lately perpetrating a fraud, just crawled out of the caves and hills of Europe, so-called damn Jew. . . and I feel everything I'm saying up here is kosher.” Speech in Baltimore, MD, February 19, 1994 </li></ul><ul><li>- “Who are the slumlords in the Black community? The so-called Jews... Who is it sucking our blood in the Black community? A white imposter Jew.” </li></ul>
