In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.

I want us to see how successful Jewish people are, and how we should study them, and learn how they have worked hard in a collective manner to become the powerful people that they are.

Here is a quote from Jews about themselves: “As a group, Jews are the most successful in terms of income and wealth. And they have reached the echelons, the highest echelons of power in every field: Transportation, Distribution, Publication, Movies, Theatre, Art, Science, Medicine, Law, Architecture, Astronomy, Archaeology, Anthropology. But all of this was developed through their mastery of Trade and Commerce. It is their success in Trade that fueled all the other areas of Jewish life.”



And David Brooks of the New York Times, in a January 12, 2010 article, wrote: “Jews are a famously-accomplished group. They make up two-tenths of 1 percent of the world population, but they’re 54 percent of the World Chess Champions; 27 percent of the Nobel Physics Laureates; and 31 percent of the Medicine Laureates. Jews make up 2 percent of the United States population, but 21 percent of the Ivy League Student Bodies; 26 percent of the Kennedy Center Honorees; 37 percent of the Academy Award winning directors; 38 percent of those on the recent Business Week list of “Leading Philanthropists”; and 51 percent of the Pulitzer Prize winners for non-fiction.”


Jews make up two-tenths of one percent of the world, but look at where they’ve reached! Don’t you want to study them? Don’t you want to rise from the condition that you’re in? You need to get the book, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2,” and see how you were undone, and see how they were done!

We have to do the same thing, but only for Righteousness, and not for Evil, because God is closing down their world. But if you study how they were successful, and use the great principles that they used, for Righteousness’ sake, we as a people can rise.

The principal business people of the world

Did you know that when Howard University was being set up, in Congress they were arguing over what Howard was going to teach Blacks? White folks in Congress said, “Well, we don’t know why we’re setting up this college for Black people, because we’re never gonna teach them the Science of Business, the Science of Warfare or the Science of Mating.”

Have you noticed that you can go into business, but that most of you who get a “MBA” (Masters in Business Administration): You’re working for White people, but you can’t make a business for yourself?

Even our successful Black business men like George Johnson (Ultra Sheen): He had 750 Black people working for him. But where’s his business now? Gone. Look at Motown: A Black man started from the ground up, and got it to a certain point, but who owns Motown now? BET was started and developed by a Black man, but now it is owned by Jews.

What offer did they give you that you couldn’t refuse? When you think about “business,” business in this world is warfare. And if you don’t know the Science of Warfare, you’ll make “business,” but you won’t know how to protect what you build!

What is the Science of Mating? Now all of you know this takes place in the breeding of dogs and horses; and when they send some of these great champion horses out to “stud,” they pay thousands upon thousands of dollars just for the sperm!

Well, in the House of Rothschild, did you know how they married throughout Europe? “This family” married with “that family,” extending the House, and building their businesses, so that they’re the richest House on Earth. We don’t do that! You go out to the bar room; you meet somebody in the crack house or, you’re partying. See, White folk—the big ones—are not like that. They arrange meetings where this one will mate with that one and extend the House’s fortunes.

That’s a Science we have to learn, to know how to match this one with that one, and extend the growth and the development of us as a people.


Simon Wolf, a president of the B’nai B’rith Jewish organization, wrote: “…We all know that the first bankers of the world—[the] Rothschilds—are Jews; we know they control not only the money market, but also the political destiny of the European world … Even our loans were taken, principally, by Jews; but mercantile enterprises owe a vast debt to the Jew. You need but look at the streets of the principal cities of the world on Jewish holidays, and you will at once see that trade is in mourning; the busy hum is hushed; everything is languid; the active brain, the quick nervous decision, the daring, yet cautious, speculator is absent. Look at Spain and Ireland, and then at England, France, Germany and the United States …”

And when it’s a Jewish holiday, everything gets quiet. Why? Because they are the principal business people of the world. Isn’t that something to admire?

What I am saying to you is not for you to “hate” Jewish people. That would be beneath you, because whatever they did, it was by Order of a Power bigger than they, and bigger than we.

God is The Author of our suffering, but He used these people to train us up; to burn us in the Fire of Affliction, the Furnace of Affliction, that we could come out as pure gold to be The Standard of Value of every nation on our Planet!

Jewish control in America and overseas

Today, Jews are 20 percent of the nation’s doctors and lawyers. Book publishers Simon & SchusterKnopf and Random House are Jewish. CBS and NBC are Jewish; half of New York’s theatrical producers were Jews, and they exert complete control over the production of movies.



Half the opinion-making and taste-influential paraphernalia in America is in Jewish hands. Can you deny that?


How many members are there of the Supreme Court? Of the nine, two are Jewish: Steven G. Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsberg. And if Elena Kagan is elected, then of the nine, 33 1/3 percent of the Supreme Court will be Jewish.

Pat Buchanan: The ADL called him a “recidivist anti-Semite,” but he’s arguing: “Man! What is this? What about the idea of ‘diversity’?” See, when Congress has to vote, Congress is so wrapped up in, and under the thumb of, Jewish control and power. You don’t even have a congressman that will vote, hardly, against anything that deals with Israel in a negative way. That’s just not going to happen!


Did you know that it would be no exaggeration to say that the greatest wealth and enterprise in South Africa are to be found in the German-Jewish-Hebrew community? This is according to a Jewish publication.

In South Africa, they run the show. Nelson Mandela, he’s a good man, but he couldn’t fulfill any promise that he made to his little brothers; that he was going to end the shanty towns, and build all these houses, put electricity there. This is because Black folk can’t do anything without White help and support, so the White man doesn’t mind making you a “politician” because he’s going to control you.

Teaching ‘Black economics’ brings‘anti-Semite’ charges

Every Black leader that spoke of economic development was charged with being an “Anti-Semite.” The following is a partial list of respected Blacks who have been victimized by being called “Black Anti-Semites,” and it spans the religious and political spectra!

We’ll start with Elijah Muhammad: That man never said one negative word about Jewish people. You know what he did say? “We need to have an economic program”—and that made him “anti-Semitic,” because if you’re going to have some “Black Economics” that means “someone is going out of business.”

When you have Black men and women teaching that we should “buy from our own” and “support our own” in the days when the Jews had businesses all in our community, you would be taking money from them. Nowadays, you would be taking it from ArabsKoreans, and others! Everybody is getting fat off of us!

Other Black leaders called “anti-Semite”: Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. DuBois, Marcus Garvey, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Julian Bond, Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael), Andrew Young, Kweisi Mfume, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Joseph Lowery. And overseas: Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Black organizations: The Black Panthers, who were called “anti-Semitic” yesterday; and the New Black Panther Party is being called “anti-Semitic” today! Also, SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee), the Universal Negro Improvement Association (Brother Marcus Garvey’s Movement), and the Nation of Islam. Black scholars: John Hope Franklin, J.A. Rogers, James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Julius Lester and Alice Walker. Black entertainers: Michael Jackson, Spike Lee, Ice Cube, Arsenio Hall, Muhammad Ali, Public Enemy, and even Oprah!

Now, you see, whenever a Black person looks like they’re going to “step out of line” a little bit, hit ‘em with that “anti-Semitism,” and they get right back in line!

And now, they call our dear beloved brother Barack Obama an “anti-Semite.” Now what the hell does he have in common with me? I’m on the bottom rung of the “anti-Semite ladder;” he’s at the top. Well, who the hell else is in between? That’s you!

My God, I mean, are all of us “anti-Semitic”? That’s why we’re ready to go before the world with the proof.

Black Athletes:  Modern-day slaves forJewish-controlled ‘sports plantations’

I want to close with “Basketball,” since LeBron James was in the news [at the time of his signing over to play for the Miami Heat].  Have you ever seen such a clamor in the news over our brothers who play sports? Did you hear how the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers talked about poor brother LeBron James, like he “betrayed Cleveland” by moving somewhere else? 

But guess what?  We did the research!  Let’s look at who the commissioners of sports (basketball, football, baseball, hockey and soccer) are… You’re still on the plantation—let me show you:  David Stern, National Basketball Association Commissioner; Maurice Podoloff, the first president of the NBA; Bud Selig, Major League Baseball Commissioner; Gary Bettman, National Hockey League Commissioner; Mark Cohon, Canadian Football League Commissioner; Don Garber, Major League Soccer Commissioner; and Sidney Halter, the first Commissioner of the Canadian Football League.

Now, those who are the Jewish owners of sports teams:  Leslie Alexander, owner of the Houston Rockets; Micky Arison, owner of the Miami Heat (where LeBron, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh play); Raanan Katz (from Israel), part owner of the Miami Heat; Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks; Alan N. Cohen, former co-owner of the Boston Celtics, New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks and New York Rangers; William Davidson, principal owner of the Detroit Pistons and the Detroit Shock (of the WNBA); Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers; Herbert Kohl, owner of the Milwaukee Bucks; Jerry Krause, former general manager of the Chicago Bulls, while Jerry Reinsdorf  is the current owner of the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago White Sox; Abe Pollin, owner of the Washington Mystics (WNBA); Bruce Ratner, owner of the New Jersey Nets; Howard Schultz (founder of Starbucks), owner of the Seattle Supersonics; Larry Tanenbaum, owner of the Toronto Raptors; Brett Yormark, president and CEO of the New Jersey Nets; Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons; Norman Braman, former owner of the Philadelphia Eagles; and Steve Bornstein, president and CEO of the National Football League Network.  You’re on a plantation, brothers.

You know, there are some plantations that, if you go to them, they “treat you better.”  But our brother LeBron went from one plantation owner who is Jewish, to another plantation owner who is Jewish.  And the Jewish owner in Miami was “jumping up and down”; because while “these Negroes are sitting here like they are the top stars,” in the background is the dude that is saying, “Boy!  We’re going to get $750 million coming in because of these three Negroes!”  They are meat on a plantation.  (And guess what?  They went for less money!  Because Black folk today can’t be bought all the way out with money; they want a “championship ring.”  Look at you!  Boy, you are the craziest people…  But God said He would choose a foolish people, and we certainly fit the bill, don’t we?)

You Negroes that are good for “sport”:  The Holy Qur’an said his world is a world of “sport and play.”  And every time you “play,” he gets rich; every time you “sport,” he gets rich!  We could just go on down the list to show you that you are on a plantation, brother! 

And when your days of playing are over, what’s your condition?  What’s your condition? Broke.  What is their condition? Rich.

Every Black man today that is rich, he has friendship with a Jewish person: Jay-Z, P. Diddy, Russell Simmons, Beyoncé, and Oprah—all our people have plenty of money, but they never learned how to network their money to produce real wealth for our people. All the friendship that they have, that makes them rich, was never good enough to make us rich as a people.


And so, beloved, in delivering this message, I know it may bring hurt to me, and to us. But I also know that we will have The Victory.

The Jewish people have the force to hurt; and they also have what it takes to help. I’ve asked them: “Since your people put ours in this condition, why don’t you help me raise our people up from the degraded state that your people have put them in?”  Do you think I’m wrong to ask them for this? I’m not asking them for a “check” to give to silly people who are going to give it right back to them! I hope that you will get the books, and see how you are being exploited; how Hollywood has painted you in a stupid way, where we are the “clowns” and still the same “Stepn’ Fetchits.”

Can we do better? Shouldn’t we do better?  Shouldn’t we study how successful the Jewish people are, and then set out to become successful ourselves?  Don’t you want to establish a little business for yourself? You don’t know how to take six, or eight of you, with a common purpose, trusting one another and pooling your resources, and serving your people—but you can do it! And, you’re going to be forced to do it!
