CHICAGO—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan threw down the gauntlet during his Saviours’ Day 2023 keynote address Feb. 26 at the Wintrust Arena, calling out the forces of the Synagogue of Satan and vowing to “break the stranglehold” they have on the people of America and the world.
Speaking to more than 10,000 people in the arena and thousands more in an overflow room at the adjacent McCormick Place Convention Center, the 89-year-old Muslim Minister explained, “I have to pay a price for what I have said today, but I want to prove to you that God is with me. My mission is to expose Satan, uncover him so you may fall away from him and come back to God and come back to yourself so you can escape the doom of this world!”
In his nearly three-hour message delivered February 26 titled “The War of Armageddon Has Begun,” Minister Farrakhan asked, why must there be such a war? It is because Satan was given 6,000 years to do his work, and he has done it so well that the scripture says Satan deceived the whole world. But Satan knew the time was coming for his end, the Minister continued, and the end would come from someone courageous enough to tell the truth.
“Your rise as a Black man and woman is driving them crazy because they can’t treat you like they did our fathers and grandfathers,” he said. “Truth is the most necessary ingredient for our salvation. Truth is the greatest thing in the universe.
“In this house, there are great spiritual teachers, but most of the preachers don’t talk about the War of Armageddon. I pray that Allah will bless me today to take the fear out of every gospel preacher … out of those who want truth to be told,” he said.
The charge of antisemitism is used by a powerful group of Jews to squash any criticism of Israel and wicked Jewish behavior, the Minister pointed out. Fear of being labeled antisemitic prevents Black leaders from associating with him, Minister Farrakhan said.
At the head of the antisemitism battle cry are the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, groups that have conducted activities to diminish Black power and unity. These organizations label people who criticize Jewish behavior as antisemitic without proof, the Minister said. They have power over the media and other avenues that shape the human mind and just the charge of antisemitism brings public condemnation and isolation.
Labeled by these groups as the world’s top antisemite, the Minister said when somebody has lied so well, when the truth comes and a man is born to tell that truth, the deceiver must hide that man.
