In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
During this critical time, when “The Old World” is going out, and “The New World” is coming in, we must be acquainted with “the ruler of the old world that’s going out,” and we must get acquainted with “The New Ruler of The World that is coming in.” The world that is going out is a world that God gave “Divine privilege” to, to rule the people of our planet for 6,000 years. And, the “6,000 years” of the rule of this contrary world and people is now up. And The New Ruler is in the world: He is The God of The New World; and He comes to make Himself known, and to “manifest Satan” so that the people of the Earth may “fall away” from Satan and get ready to prepare themselves to become a part of that which God “makes new.”
‘Synagogue of Satan’s schemes to destroy the First Amendment right to ‘free speech’
We want to focus again on that “Synagogue of Satan.” I want to speak about “the charge of anti-Semitism,” and what that charge leads to.
The First Amendment of The United States Constitution reads as follows: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” And so, I would like to put before you the following questions:
How does one go from engaging in “free speech” that we assume is protected by The First Amendment of The Constitution, to finding one’s self facing possibly criminal penalties?
How does such a wicked claim of “anti-Semitism” move the accused one from speaking or writing the truth, and then to “legal jeopardy”?
What is a legal mechanism by which these “attack dogs” of The Synagogue of Satan activate “the governmental apparatus” to seek out, punish and destroy those that are labeled as an “anti-Semite” or as a “hate group”—and destroy their right to “free speech” in the process?
‘We want to look at the criminal effect of being labeled “anti-Semitic.” We want to look at how these private Jewish organizations who do the labeling, like the Anti-Defamation League and The Southern Poverty Law Center, manipulate the government law enforcement agencies like the FBI and the IRS to target and harass those who are so labeled.’ Then, we want to see how they work to “effect their scheming,” with the disproportionate number of members of the Jewish community working as “DAs” (or “district attorneys”) or federal and state prosecutors and judges, in the United States court system where these cases will ultimately be tried.
It begins with someone, anyone, who holds a “controversial view,” and speaks or writes about it in public. “Controversial” means “contrary to the popular version of the truth.”
However, instead of engaging in honest and open public dialogue and debate about the issue that the spokesperson raises, as is called for and encouraged by the United States Constitution, private interest groups start with “the labeling”: “He’s a hate teacher, with a hateful message.” And then the group he belongs to: If they don’t repudiate the spokesperson fast enough, they also get called “a hate group that promotes intolerance.” They don’t have to “prove it,” they just have to “say it over and over again”—and then “the drumbeats” get amplified by their brethren who control the media. And if that person does not apologize “quick enough” after that, they start to pick away at his supporters. And those who would defend that person: If they are not strong enough to stand up to the slander, they begin to fall away and distance themselves; and some may even start repudiating and “apologizing for” their former friend and ally.
Still, if he refuses to “bow down”: They connect certain inflammatory terms that are intended to generate real hatred, and even retribution, against the person who is speaking these controversial points. They start with: “He hates!” “He’s intolerant!” and that escalates to, “He’s threatening, and he incites hatred in others!” And then the word “violence” gets thrown in, and then “hate crimes” are mentioned; and ultimately, you hear the words “domestic terrorism.” This is all calculated to get the public to put so much pressure on that individual; that they, and their supporters, “relent,” “apologize” and “retreat.”
And this is why I say to my great brothers and sisters in “The Twitter Army”: No matter what vile speech comes at you, no matter what threats are made against my life by those who hate The Truth that we are speaking, never ever “get down in the gutter,” or threaten anyone with violence, because they are building a record of what we are saying! So, if you threaten anyone with violence, or you act like you wish to do them evil because they desire to do me evil, then one day you might hear this again in a court of law.
The Synagogue’s efforts to ‘modernize’ government persecution of individuals and groups
If we continue to stand on our principles and exercise our “freedom of speech,” these members of “The Synagogue of Satan” then get their brethren in The Judicial Branch of government, in the IRS, and their brethren in the Congress and the Senate, and even up to the White House or the “Justice Department,” and they begin to act in a conspiratorial manner to charge, condemn, try and punish—and even kill—those who are so charged. This government persecution of individuals and groups who speak boldly about the wrongs in American society was started under J. Edgar Hoover’s “F.B.I. Counterintelligence Program” [“COINTELPRO”].
Although that Program was exposed, and it was said that certain “controls” were ultimately put on the activity of the FBI; but yet, those wicked policies still continue even up to this very moment—of course The Synagogue of Satan stepped in to re-establish the worst of Hoover’s illegal operations. In August of 1999, under the administration of President Bill Clinton, federal surveillance of those labeled “hate groups” was restricted to those who “committed,” or were “linked to,” actual crimes. According to published reports, his Attorney General Janet Reno said: “It is important that you not focus on a group unless you have a reasonable indication that they are engaged in criminal conduct.” But then 29 Jewish leaders led by the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman went to the Justice Department, and told them “this is too timid an approach.” It was reported that Foxman stated: “We want better surveillance and infiltration if necessary …”—the concern, Mr. Foxman said, was modernizing the regulations, so federal authorities “can deal not only with getting the man, but with preventing the crime.”
So now, they have their way: A position was created inside the Justice Dept. which they say is to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. [Based upon The Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004] … Secretary of State John Kerry appointed a man named Ira Forman as the new “Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.”
What will happen with these positions, except to coordinate “the government surveillance and infiltration” of those who have been labeled “anti-Semitic”? There are real anti-Semites in this country that hate the Jewish people, and there is nothing wrong with monitoring a real “anti-Semitic hate group.” But when you have that intention for me and The Nation of Islam, then we have to charge you and challenge you to prove your claim.
You have a long history of lying on The Nation of Islam. And it is time that we “throw down the gauntlet” now, and make you come before the American people and the world, and prove your charge. And if you cannot, and you cannot, then you’re going to have to pay for all these years that you have poisoned the minds of the American people; destroyed progress of tens of hundreds and thousands of people—and you thought you “got away with it.”
Not today …
In “The Preface” of The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume 2, The Historical Research Department provides us with historical proof on how Jews at the highest organizational levels have always labeled The Nation of Islam as “anti-Semitic.” For example, they write that in 1942, a secret Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith file titled “Temple of Islam Infiltration” states: “A Negro employed by us”—“us” here is The Anti- Defamation League—“proved ‘quite instrumental’ in a F.B.I. raid on the Chicago mosque resulting in 82 arrests.” So, this has been going on a long time.
And what did you mean, Mr. Abraham Foxman, when you said, “Louis Farrakhan is the only African-American leader”? Your words exactly, sir, as they appear in a Haaretz news article published in April 2013: “The last time an African-American leader stood up to anti-Semitism was Martin Luther King Jr., who said it’s a sin. The only leadership that now exists in that community”— the “African American community”—“is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan can assemble 20,000 people several times a year, and he flaunts his anti-Semitism. What’s worse, they deny it exists, so there’s no one to talk to.”
I interpret that as meaning “The Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan are the only ones we don’t control”; I interpret that to mean that “Louis Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam” may very well be “The Last Man Standing” in the way of your successful capture of Black leaders, your successful capture of Black professionals and Black businessmen, your capture of Black artists, and your capture of heads of state and government that bow to your commands! Then if we are “The Last Man Standing,” then you are calling on all of your forces to concentrate their attention on “Louis Farrakhan” and “The Nation of Islam.”
Well, “concentrate” with everything you’ve got, because The God that we serve will answer effectively and efficiently, and will ultimately destroy your “power.”
‘A party from among’ The Synagogue of Satan that ‘designs to ruin’ God’s Warner among us
Look at what’s written in the Holy Qur’an, Surah 4 Al-Nisa (“The Women”), verses 111-112: “And whoever commits a sin, commits it only against himself. And Allah is ever Knowing, Wise. And whoever commits a fault or a sin, then accuses of it one innocent, he indeed takes upon himself the burden of a calumny and a manifest sin.”
Now, what is a “calumny”? A “calumny” is “the making of a false and defamatory statement in order to damage someone’s reputation.” It is “slander,” it is “character assassination,” and it is “vilification.”
To The Anti-Defamation League, The Southern Poverty Law Center, a.k.a. “The Synagogue of Satan”: You are “the sinner”! You want to put your evil on an innocent man; you say I am “the hater”—you’re wrong! We can prove that you are “the hater,” and you’ve been the hater of us ever since you’ve been on our planet. You are “the liar”; you are the one that is “creating violence and hatred”—it is you. You manipulate your media brethren, turning them into “tools” of your wicked ideas and policies.
Well now “your day” has come. In the Holy Qur’an, Surah 104 is called Al-Humazah (“The Slanderer”): “Woe to every slanderer, defamer! Who amasses wealth and counts it—He thinks that his wealth will make him abide. Nay, he will certainly be hurled into the crushing disaster; And what will make thee realize what the crushing disaster is? It is the Fire kindled by Allah, Which rises over the hearts. Surely it is closed in on them, In extended columns.”
What will make thee know what “the great and utter destruction” is? It is “The Fire,” in the heart of the slanderer; that leads that slanderer to The Fire of Hell.
In verse 113 of Surah 4, The Holy Qur’an says: “And were it not for Allah’s grace on thee and His mercy, a party of them had certainly designed to ruin thee. And they ruin only themselves, and they cannot harm thee in any way. And Allah has revealed to thee the Book and the Wisdom, and taught thee what thou knewest not, and Allah’s grace on thee is very great.”
I rely on The Wisdom of that scripture, because as I said: This “Synagogue of Satan” is comprised not only of members of the “Jewish community,” but you have Gentiles, you have Blacks, you have Asians—Your “Synagogue” is big. And a lot of the people that are members of “The Synagogue” are unwitting pawns in The Wicked Game of this Satanic group.
Remember these words of The Qur’an: “a party”—and that’s you, “Synagogue”—from among them “certainly designed to ruin thee.” “Thee” here means Muhammad; “thee,” here, means “what he represents.” And if you don’t think that I am a part of “Muhammad,” then watch and see. Your evil is designed to ruin me, and to ruin The Nation of Islam. But you ruin only yourself. So keep on planning and watch what happens to you, and what you represent.
A ‘Who is Anti-Semitic?’ roll call
Let us take a look at all the Black leaders that have been charged with “anti-Semitic behavior”— because they dared to utter a word of criticism against “Jewish misbehavior and mislabeling.” Let’s take a look at “Who is anti-Semitic?”—I bet you won’t even believe this: Booker T. Washington, the founder of Tuskegee University; W.E.B. DuBois; Marcus Mosiah Garvey; and, yes: The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—the man that said, “anti-Semitism is a sin,” yet you all referred to him, at one point, as an “anti-Semite”! Malcolm X, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, President Nelson Mandela, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Julian Bond; Kwame Ture, formerly known as “Stokely Carmichael”; Andrew Young; Kweisi Mfume, former member of Congress, and former leader of the N.A.A.C.P.; The Reverends Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Joseph Lowery; The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee called “SNCC”; The Black Panthers; The Universal Negro Improvement Association, which was Mr. Garvey’s movement; and, The Nation of Islam.
But it doesn’t stop there! They accused Mahatma Gandhi [a leader for India’s independence], of being an “anti-Semite”. Also: Historians John Hope Franklin and J. A. Rogers; Writers James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Julius Lester and Alice Walker; and entertainers Michael Jackson, Spike Lee, Ice Cube, Arsenio Hall, Muhammad Ali, Public Enemy, Oprah Winfrey—this is just a few. Look at the “great company” that Louis Farrakhan is in. …
You mean everybody is a “hater of the Jewish people”? Stop It!
Now let’s “call the roll” of those White people that you have called “anti-Semitic”—beginning with U.S. presidents: President Harry Truman, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, President Richard M. Nixon, President Jimmy Carter, President Gerald Ford, President George H. W. Bush—and President Barack Obama. Also, a listing of White leaders, historians, inventors, writers, clergymen, philosophers, etc.: H. L. Mencken, George Bernard Shaw, Henry Adams, H. G. Wells, Edgar Degas, T. S. Eliot, Immanuel Kant, Tacitus, Philostratus, Cicero, Shakespeare, Voltaire, Hitler, Edward VIII, Aleksander Pushkin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Richard Wagner, Bobby Fischer, and The Reverend Billy Graham.
These “members of The Synagogue of Satan” have always known that a Day of Reckoning was coming; and so over time, they put themselves in positions of power in every nation of the Western Hemisphere. This was done to “monitor The Awakening” of The Gentiles—the masses of so-called heathens, savages and goyim; as well as the masses of Blacks. So anyone that “rises” and “criticizes”: They put fear in them by charging them with being “anti-Semitic.” Even if they knew that what we were saying is the truth, most would be afraid and would not stand up under “the heat of Jewish power.”
Well, today we are calling you out, and asking you to use your inordinate power, because The God that we represent wants to crush you and your “power.” He’s here to bring in a Brand New World—and He’s chosen the despised and the rejected, unloved and unwanted Black man and woman of America to be “The Cornerstone” of a Brand New Reality.
The ‘trick’ of ‘anti-Semitic labeling’ confirmed
During an August 14, 2002 interview on her show Democracy Now! (democracynow.org), host and executive producer Amy Goodman interviewed former Israeli Minister Shulamit Aloni. Pay attention to Miss Goodman’s words introducing her guest: “Yours is a voice of criticism we don’t often hear in the United States. Often when there is dissent expressed in the United States against policies of the Israeli government, people here are called ‘anti-Semitic.’ What is your response to that as an Israeli Jew?” And Minister Shulamit Aloni answered: “Well, it’s a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel, then we bring up the Holocaust. When in this country people are criticizing Israel, then they are anti-Semitic. And the organization is strong, and has a lot of money, and the ties between Israel and the American Jewish establishment are very strong and they are strong in this country, as you know. And they have power, which is OK. They are talented people, and they have power and money, and the media and other things; and their attitude is ‘Israel my country, right or wrong,’ identification—and they are not ready to hear criticism. And it’s very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli government as ‘anti-Semitic,’ and to bring up the Holocaust, and the suffering of the Jewish people, and that is [to] justify everything we do to the Palestinians.”
This “anti-Semitic labeling” is a trick that they use! But look at how many people have been destroyed on account of such a trick!
Where did you learn such tricks? Did you not learn this from your Father Yakub, who taught you a System of Tricks and Lies? Look at how easy it is for you to lie, and put your wickedness on innocent persons. What is the meaning of a “trick”? A “trick” is “a cunning, or skillful, act or scheme intended to deceive or outwit someone”; “a mischievous practical joke”; “a skillful act performed for entertainment or amusement”; “an illusion”; “a clever or particular way of doing something.”
It’s really “amusing” to Satan when he can tell a lie, and we operate on that lie, and act in a manner that we would never act if we had only known The Truth. They are entertained by playing tricks on unsuspecting, ignorant people. And this is why it is an imperative that The Synagogue of Satan must be called out, and “Satan” and his “Synagogue” must be made known.
