(RNS) Saying "I'm not anti-Semitic, I'm just telling the truth," Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told followers that Jews control the media and entertainment industries, and said President Obama could be assassinated in an inside plot that could be blamed on Muslims. By Omar Sacirbey

    Nothing new here from Farrakhan…he and the NOI have been saying the same for decades. He needs to be careful about throwing “President Obama” and “assasination” around in the same sentence, however.

  2. Many people think that Malcom X was assasinated by the NOI. I find it ironic that NOI and Farrakhan are not arrested for hate speech.

  3. Fred… whew..thanks for that.
    I have been reading so many reasoned and intelligent perspectives from moderate religious people on fb and here in RNS that I needed to be reminded that making inane statements and demonstrating gross ignorance is still considered a virtue among the hard core religious right.

    Stock market up highest since 2008. five consecutive monthsof lowering unemployment which is at its lowest in three years. Home sales up, building up. Car companies making record profits. Manufafcturing hiring in this country. And the president is doing everything he can to help collapse the economy because…? Oh, I know, because he’s A) a Muslim, B) is a Kenyan C) hates America D) is a communist/socialist/fascist (pick one or more)? Have I got that about right, Fred?

    Is there no end to this madness of extremist right wing haters?

  4. For all Farrakhan’s hysterical religious bluster, Obama will be handily rel-elected and the vast majority of the Jewish population here in the USA will assist, with their overwhelming preference for democrat presidents.

    Farrakhan should have stuck to playing the fiddle instead of unsuccessfully trying to channel Malcolm X all these years.

  5. Satan is the ruler of this world according to Jesus hence I rest my case…friendship with the world and politics of this world would make someone an enemy of God quoted from the book of James 4:4 Don’t be in such a hurry to be involved with this policy of having to vote for men in office! Daniel 2:44 makes it crystal clear what is the end result!
