AN OPEN LETTER TO BLACK LEADERSHIP
To the Spiritual, Political, Educational, and Economic Leaders and to our Sports and Entertainment Giants:
May this open letter find you well and in good spirit as we search for a solution to the many problems that we face as a people.
Most of you have benefited in some way from a relationship that you have with members of the Jewish Community. Some of you have become very wealthy and are able to live in the best manner that you choose because of this friendship. However, have you ever noticed that no matter how rich and powerful some of us have become, we have never been shown how to network with the wealthy and learned of our people, pooling our resources that we may produce for our people that which would grow us from a begging position as little children to become masters of our own destiny?
It is not that we would not desire to do this; it is because we have not been shown how. Our distrust and disunity prohibits us from doing what the Jewish people have done.
These books that the Historical Research Department of the Nation of Islam has published, "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews: How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy Volume 2" and "Jews Selling Blacks" are being shared with our people to show us how we were completely undone and how others have benefited from what has happened and continues to happen to us. We cannot deal effectively with our so-called friends as men and women without this vital knowledge.
Whenever the Light of Truth has been shone on them, they reach for you to defend them against the Truth that uncovers the horror that has been done to us. They have always been successful pitting us against each other thus keeping them from facing the Truth of their real relationship with us. As they call upon you to denounce me as an anti-Semite and, because of the favor you believe you owe them for what they have done to help make life comfortable for you; I am asking you to stand down. I am asking you to read this research and then discuss it with your Jewish friends. Would you condemn me as an anti-Semite for exposing the research that shows them as being anti-Black? I am asking you to stand down and let them come out to me to defend their record and history of their relationship with us that we compiled from that which was written by their own scholars, historians, and Rabbis.
If you become an apologist for them in this hour, you will be seen by the masses of our people as a modern day Uncle Tom who believes you owe more to them than to the masses of our suffering people. If you attack me at their insistence you will be seen as an enemy of the rise of our people as well as an enemy of your own rise; for you can never be free to rise above the limitations placed on you by them until you know the absolute Truth of your relationship with them. Being an apologist for them will be dangerous for you as the masses of our people are awakening and are increasingly angry at the reality of our condition. No matter how popular you may be and desirous you may be to defend your so-called friends, it is dangerous for any of us to defend those who are the architects of White supremacy and are the architects of the destruction of us as a people.
Most of you are afraid to face such a formidable and powerful enemy. So, I implore you to stand to the side and let them come out to defend themselves and argue against the Truth that I and we speak and write.
I will prove to you and them that Allah (God) is Present and He is with me. As David went out to Goliath and defeated him in the face of the fear of King Saul and the Children of Israel, likewise, I can assure you that I will be victorious over your and my enemies with the Help of Allah (God) and His Christ (Mahdi).
Thank you for reading these words.
I Am Your Brother and Servant,
Respectfully and Sincerely Submitted,
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

Minister Louis Farrakhan's Letter To ADL's Abraham FoxmanJul 8, 2010
Minister Louis Farrakhan
NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HONORABLE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD
AND THE NATION OF ISLAM
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL.
I BEAR WITNESS THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH AND I BEAR
WITNESS THAT MUHAMMAD IS HIS MESSENGER

President Abraham Foxman
605 Third Avenue
New York, New York 10017
Dear Mr. Foxman,
Please accept these two books enclosed from our Historical Research Department.
The charge of anti-Semitism has been leveled against the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam for many years. For twenty-five of the thirty-three years of my rebuilding of the Nation of Islam, I and we, in the Nation of Islam have suffered under the charge of "anti-Semitism" because I have dared to be critical of what I and many others feel is Jewish behavior that has ill-affected Black people and others.
Our Nation of Islam Historical Research Team was motivated by these false charges to study the works of Jewish scholars, historians, and Rabbis, being very careful to omit any words written or spoken, no matter how truthful, by those who are considered "anti-Semitic."
The Judaic Role in the Black Slave Trade
We can now present to our people and the world a true, undeniable record of the relationship between Blacks and Jews from their own mouths and pens. These scholars, Rabbis and historians have given to us an undeniable record of Jewish anti-Black behavior, starting with the horror of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping, the labor movement of the North and South, the unions and the misuse of our people that continues to this very moment.
As you have constantly labeled me and done everything within your power to hinder me and us from the civilizing work that Allah (God) has given to The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and myself to do, I ask you to find one act committed by me or those who follow me that has injured one Jewish person, stopped Jews from doing business, hindered their education, injured their families, sullied or desecrated their synagogues. You will not find one. So, except for our willingness to tell the truth and our unwillingness to apologize to you for telling the truth, on what basis do you charge me and us as being "anti-Semitic"?
Armed with this knowledge from the pens of Jewish scholars, Rabbis, and historians, we could now charge you with the most vehement anti-Black behavior in the annals of our history in America and the world. We could charge you with being the most deceitful so-called friend, while your history with us shows you have been our worst enemy.
I do not write this with vitriol, hatred, bitterness, or a spirit of vengeance, because One greater than you and me has permitted this for His own wise purposes.
However, what is done is done. We cannot change the past. You and I, your children and mine, your people and mine are living in the present. Your present reality is sitting on top of the world in power, with riches and influence, while the masses of my people here in America, in the Caribbean, Central and South America and elsewhere in the world are in the worst condition of any member of the human family.
I have pleaded with you over the years for a sensible, intelligent dialogue. You have rejected me, and some Rabbis have given me terms for friendship that any self-respecting person could never accept. So with this truth in our hands and yours, and soon in the hands of tens of thousands, I again ask you for a dialogue.
You are in a position to help me in the civilizing work that The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was given to do by Allah (God), whose burden and Mission –Allah and He –has made me to share. With this historical research in your hands, you may either gather your forces for an all-out struggle against me, the Nation of Islam, and the truth that I and we speak and write, or as an intelligent and civilized people, we can sit down and carve out a way forward that can obliterate the stain of the past and render us, Jews and Blacks-before Allah (God) and the world-in a new, honorable, and mutually respectful relationship.
This is an offer asking you and the gentiles whom you influence to help me in the repair of my people from the damage that has been done by your ancestors to mine. This is a wonderful way of the present generation of Jews to escape the Judgment of Allah (God) by aiding in the repair of His people.
However, should you choose to make our struggle to civilize our people more difficult, then I respectfully warn you, in the Name of Allah (God) and His Messiah, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that the more you fight and oppose me rather than help me to lift my people from their degraded state, Allah (God) and His Messiah will bring you and your people to disgrace and ruin and destroy your power and influence here and throughout the world.
I pray that you will make the wise and best choice.
Respectfully and Sincerely Submitted,
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
Servant to the Lost-Found
Nation of Islam in the West

Jewish leaders demand Farrakhan denounce "Secret Relationship" book07-11-2010
Details emerge of meeting with Jewish leaders and Minister Farrakhan
CHICAGO (FinalCall.com) - The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan continued his message "Who Are The Real Children of Israel?" with part two subtitled, "The Proof" at the Nation of Islam's international headquarters, Mosque Maryam on July 11, 2010. The message was also broadcast live via webcast to a national and international audience.
For some in the audience, it was the first time hearing detailed aspects of Minister Farrakhan's simmering and at times white-hot controversy with powerful Jewish leaders and organizations.
He went into details of a meeting over a decade ago with several prominent Jewish rabbis and leaders in which they laid down ground rules for him to gain friendship with the Jewish community. Their terms included a probation period of monitoring Minister Farrakhan's actions and words over a "protracted period of time." Another term was that he denounce "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews," Volume One, which they called a "calumny" against the Jewish people. No one has been written of well in history who has not been a friend of the Jewish people, Minister Farrakhan said the influential Jews told him.
Minister Farrakhan responded that since they had done more harm to Black people maybe it was us—as members of a vigilant Black community—that needed to watch the Jewish people over a "protracted period of time." He then advised them that he would not denounce the book unless they were prepared to denounce the research and writings of the Jewish historians and scholars who were quoted in Volume One.
Published in 1991, "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews," Volume One set off ideological tremors resulting in denunciations, and chaotic scrambles into the archives of Jewish historical literature by those hoping to debunk its claims. They were unsuccessful, and quietly, the assertions that Jews were merely "co-sufferers or innocent by-standers" in the trans-Atlantic slave trade have been silenced.
The Nation of Islam's Historical Research Department has followed up with the highly anticipated Volume 2 in a series of scholarly volumes, this one under the subtitle "How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy."
