Obama buddy accuses Jews of 'anti-black behavior'

President Obama's confidant Louis Farrakhan has accused the Jewish community of 'anti-black behavior' in a series of letters sent to Jewish organizations in the United States (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
In the letter, dated last Thursday, the Chicago-based Nation of Islam leader said he sought a dialogue with Jews. He sent the letter to groups including the Orthodox and Reform movements, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and the American Jewish Committee, a New York-based advocacy and humanitarian nonprofit that spearheads inter-religious dialogue.

"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," he writes. "Your present reality is sitting on top of the world in power, with riches and influences, while the masses of my people ... are in the worst condition of any member of the human family."

In the past, Farrakhan's most inflammatory comments have included referring to Judaism as a "gutter religion" and calling Adolf Hitler "wickedly great." Recently, he has railed against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which he claims is conspiring to trap the U.S. in a war with Iran.

Farrakhan echoed similar comments last Saturday in an Atlanta speech titled, "Who Are the Real Children of Israel?"

He did not respond to several messages seeking comment Tuesday. Farrakhan has over the years denied claims of anti-Semitism, arguing his remarks are often taken out of context and that criticism of Jews in any light automatically earns the "anti-Semite" label.
Read the whole thing.

What's most disturbing about this is that Farrakhan was a confidant of the President of the United States until Obama threw him under the bus when he became a political liability to Obama's campaign. Anyone think that Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright (who popped up again last week) aren't still an influence on Obama's thinking?

Under Obama, Farrakhan has become a frequent visitor to the White House.

I bet Farrakhan doesn't get the White House hazing drill that PM Netanyahu has to endure. Jewish Democratic voters, wake up already!
