On November 17, 2022, the Nation of Islam shared on its Facebook page an excerpt from a lecture by leader Louis Farrakhan that was originally delivered on June 1, 2013. In the lecture, Farrakhan said that he focuses on the Jews more than other "problems" faced by the black community because they are the "open enemy" of black people and are using them as a "tool and a willing slave." He referred to the Jews as the "synagogue of Satan," and he said that "Satanic Jews" wrote the Talmud. He added that if the Jews choose to follow their rabbis rather than the word of God, then they have chosen death for themselves and their descendants.
Louis Farrakhan: "Some of Twitter followers wanted do know: 'Why are you focusing on Jewish people when there are so many problems that we have as Black people?' Our problem, brothers and sisters, is that we don't know ourselves all the time. We don't know God or the enemy of God. And as long as we are blind to this crucial and critical knowledge in this time, then we are opened to be deceived and misused, and continue to be used by our open enemy as a tool and a willing slave. So it is absolutely necessary that we untie you from the forces that have you bound.
"As we have been discussing, the Synagogue of Satan and how these Satanic Jews wrote a book with their hands, the Talmud, to make it equal or even superior to the revealed word of God found in the Torah.
"If all the members of the Jewish community follow this and not the Torah, and not the revealed word of God, that has come to you — prophet after prophet sent to you by the Lord of the world. If this is true — that you follow that which was written by your own hands, by your doctors of law, by your scholars and your rabbis, rather than that which was sent down by God through his many prophets that he sent the Israelites — then you have chosen death for yourself and your seed."
