Ministry of Lies: The Truth behind the Nation of Islam's "The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews"

Synopsis

Ministry of Lies is a reasoned, scholarly response to Louis Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam's inflammatory diatribe against Jews, the book The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews. Harold Brackman clearly dissects each assertion in a question-and-answer format, proving The Secret Relationship is no more than recycled myths - hate-mongering falsehood and exaggeration.

Excerpt

"For a moment, The Lie becomes Truth."

—Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

by Rabbi Abraham Cooper

No, Louis Farrakhan did not invent "the big lie." Some days, it just seems that way. For a decade now, this charismatic firebrand has found ways to maximize his impact far beyond the estimated 20,000 members of his Nation of Islam.

Farrakhan's notoriety does not stem solely from his hatred of the Jewish people, though his 1984 speeches labeling Judaism "a gutter religion" and Adolf Hitler "a great man" first catapulted him into the national limelight and paved the way for a $5 million gift from Libya's patron of terrorism, Muammar al-Qaddafi.

Nor is it only the shock value of the apocalyptic and cataclysmic future he envisions for America that draws the crowds. Farrakhan challenges Americans in a more profound and disturbing way. He insists on racializing the national debate. Open discussion of issues—ranging from the urban crisis, to workplace fairness, to Hollywood's portrayal of minorities—translates for Farrakhan into open season on Jews, Catholics, Korean American merchants, gays, and anyone else who gets in the way of a worldview that defines its reality through the prism of Institutionalized Racism (read: America 1994) and Institutionalized Victimization (read: all African Americans except those who disagree with Farrakhan).
