The Nation of Islam held its national conference in Detroit this weekend and leader Louis Farrakhan used his three-hour keynote address to claim Jews are trying to frighten and dominate the peoples of the world.
Thousands attended the conference.
“I want to disabuse the Jews today of the false claim that you are the chosen of God — that Israel or Palestine belongs to you,” Farrakhan said, to loud cheers.
“I want to disabuse you of that. I want to make it so clear and I’m going to tell you about your future. You that think you have power to frighten and dominate the peoples of the world. I’m here to announce the end of your time.”

Farrakhan has made many other anti-Semitic statements in the past. These include denouncing Jews as “bloodsuckers” and making claims such as “Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America and her banking system.”
Antisemitism is a feature of Islamist groups worldwide.
In Toronto leaders of the Masjid Toronto mosque were caught praying for Jews to be killed and driven out of the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism.
“O Allah! Destroy anyone who killed Muslims. O Allah! Destroy anyone who displaced the sons of the Muslims. O Allah! Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews! O Allah!” Dr Mustafa Hannout told the congregation in a 2016 video which has now surfaced.
Masjid Toronto issued a statement apologizing.
In Montreal, police are currently investigating a video of an imam at a mosque calling on Allah to “destroy the accursed Jews” and kill them “one by one.”
“Allah grant victory to our brothers waging jihad in your name in every place, oh Master of the Universe,” he says.
