In a three-hour Independence Day rant on YouTube, notorious anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called prominent Jewish Americans, including Anti-Defamation League head Jonathan Greenblatt and defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz, “Satan.”
“Mr. Greenblatt, you are Satan. Those of you that say that you’re Jews, I will not even give you the honor of calling you a Jew,” Farrakhan said. “You are not a Jew… you are Satan and it is my job now to pull the cover off of Satan so that every Muslim when he sees Satan, pick up a stone, as we do in Mecca.
“When you know who Satan is, you don’t have to kill him [but] the stone of truth, that’s what you throw. We cast truth at falsehood till we knock out its brains,” he continued. He called Dershowitz “a skillful deceiver” and “Satan masquerading as a lawyer.” Farrakhan also implicated Israel in the death of George Floyd.
“At this stage of history, no one can be surprised by the rants of America’s Godfather of antisemitism,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
