In March Farrakhan Falsely Claimed the Jews were Behind the 9/11 Attacks

On October 10, 2015 Louis Farrakhan held a "Justice or Else" rally in Washington DC on the 20th anniversary of his "Million Man March" of 1995. The crowd was described as "thousands" in this LA Times story. The website Russia Today claims "tens of thousands". Pictures are unclear as people are mixing photos of 1995 with those of 2015.

Whatever the number it's disturbing to see him with such a following and such acceptability by others who joined his platform.

In March of this year in Chicago he gave a speech/sermon that fully embraced the lie that Jews were the conspiracists that cauased the 9/11 attack in New York. You first read the account in this Zionist website The Times of Israel with great suspicion, but when you see the video you realize their account is essentially accurate. Farrakhan didn't literally say "the Jews" did it but he says there were "many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks" and mentions the Jewish owner of one of the New York buildings Larry Silverstein, etc. and claims that "many Jews received a text message telling them not to come to work on September 11". He absolves Bin Laden of all responsibility.

This was said in March of this year, apparently not in his two hours speech at the Oct. 11 event.

Farrakhan is seen as an outsider, a critic of U.S. imperialism, but he does it with a mix of bigotry. As August Bebel once said "Anti-Semitism is the socialism of the fools".
