the aims and objectives of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad? How could it not be connected to Master Fard Muhammad’s mastery of the science of business? Related to this is the following which I wrote, published in The Final Call in 2007: “Brother, the very first business we had in Chicago was on 31st and Wentworth. It was a combined restaurant and grocery store,” 94-year old Minister Lucius Bey told me recently. “And the Honorable Elijah Muhammad did the purchasing of meat; the butchering; a lot of the cooking, and he also was the cashier, especially on Saturdays,” the man affectionately known as the ‘Dean’ of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s Ministers continued, warmly. “The Messenger would get some of the best meat you could find—lamb, and sometimes even half a cow, and he would purchase from Kosher places, and make steaks,” he explained to me. “How do you think we learned to make bean soup so well? He taught us how to cook. He did it all. He would put on his apron and work hard,” Brother Lucius stated, recalling his fond memories in the Muslim
establishment where he worked around 60 years ago, delivering groceries in a pick-up truck to his Brothers and Sisters.” … I thought over his various duties, as described by Minister Lucius Bey, and realized that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad held at least four positions, simultaneously, in this one Muslim establishment: cashier, purchaser, butcher, and cook. Just think that over, in terms of how that experience—not to mention his practice and mastery of natural and spiritual principles that he had been taught the root of by Master Fard Muhammad—empowered him as an educator and trainer of those that would fill similar positions, in this early Muslim business, and those to come years and decades later.

Efforts by the Enemy to Restrict Public Access to
The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews Pass as severe laws as you will to keep these unfortunate creatures in ignorance, it is in vain, unless you can extinguish that spark of intellect which God has given them. Sir, we have, as far as possible, closed every avenue by which light might enter their minds. We have only to go one step further — to extinguish the capacity to see the light — and our work will be completed. They would then be reduced to the level of the beasts of the field, and we should be safe….Sir, a death struggle must come between the two classes, in which one or the other will be extinguished forever. —Henry Berry, speaking in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1832 After defending Jesse Jackson in his 1984 run for the presidency, The Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan had to endure the racist and incessant charges from the Jewish people that he was “anti-Semitic.” In his own defense, Minister Farrakhan vehemently disputed the charge and then exposed the racist history of the people who leveled it. He revealed that Jews were among the leaders in the transAtlantic slave trade, a fact that had been concealed by the few Jewish scholars who knew it. In full and overwhelming support of his claim, Minister Farrakhan released in 1991 The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume 1 (TSR), a 334-page exposé of Jewish slave-trading and other anti-Black behavior. Its impact was immediate: For the very first time, Jewish people were shown in excruciating detail the extensive involvement of their people in the greatest crime in the history of the world—from the pages of their own books in the handwriting of their own Jewish scholars. Many Jews reacted with outrage—not because the information was untrue, but because the revelation came from their Black victims. Others remain in total denial. The Minister followed this release with his continuing attempts to engage in dialogue with the Jews. Last year, The Minister released the 512-page The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2, along with the most extensive collection of
The Honorable Minister
Louis Farrakhan slave sale advertisements ever Jewish slave-sale published in Jews Selling Blacks. Despite the sordid history of Nazi book-burning and anti-Jewish censorship, there has been a concerted international Jewish effort to restrict public access to the Nation of Islam books and to intimidate Blacks who would use them to teach the true history of the Black Holocaust. Unable to attack the books on their merits, Jewish extremists have engaged in a number of underhanded and vicious tactics to undermine the distribution and sale of the books. Below listed are only some of the satanic attacks on the verifiable truth contained in these books: • Under Jewish pressure the books have been banned by Canadian customs officials. Their law restricts
the importation of “pornography,” “hate literature,” or “other.” Several shipments to Canada have been returned marked “other” with no other explanation. • Well over a hundred academic libraries around the world now have the books in their collections, including all of the prestigious Ivy League institutions such as Yale, Harvard, Brown, Stanford, and Princeton, as well as Jewish institutions such as Brandeis, Yeshiva University, and the Jewish Theological Seminary. Even Cambridge University in London, England, and other academic institutions and libraries in Germany and New Zealand have the books on their shelves. Their presence at all of the Ivy League institutions is proof that they consider them substantial works, but most of these libraries have restricted access to them. Some libraries have refused to carry the books, even though they carry all of the so-called “refutation” pamphlets against TSR. Brandeis has it but it is in a special locked section called the “Cage.” Libraries that have TSR in general circulation often report that the copies are “missing” or have been damaged or have had pages removed. • Immediately after the release of TSR, the Historical Research Department received threatening phone calls promising violence against members of the Nation of Islam (recordings available). The calls were traced to the homes of several members of a Rhode Island Jewish hate group. They had apparently met
the night before and planned the terror attacks. • Barnes & Noble was forced to stop selling TSR. Before this outright ban, a shopper reported that a Barnes & Noble store in California was putting a copy of an anti-TSR “refutation” pamphlet—free of charge— in the bags of every shopper who purchased ANY book from its “African American” section. These pamphlets were apparently provided to the store by the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish spy organization long involved in anti-Black espionage. • After Wellesley College’s Prof. Tony Martin’s lecture in Toronto in 1994, sponsored by the local Nation of Islam mosque, local government officials raided a TV station and seized the tape of the lecture, which the station was about to air on the news. • There are several reports that Jews were walking into Black bookstores and demanding that they remove these books from their shelves.
• There was an attempt by Jewish organizations to pressure Black professors to write articles and reviews against TSR, and some were supplied with copies of it for that purpose.
Some who did write reviews were castigated if they were not condemnatory enough. Most Black scholars refused to participate in the ruse once they saw the book. To date, not a single Black historian has publicly criticized the book. Henry Louis Gates’ article in the New York Times in 1994 remains the most quoted of the forced negro responses.
The text of Gates’ commentary shows no sign that he ever saw the book. In any event, Gates is not even a historian—his Ph.D is in literature, not history. • The internet forums are also the target of bogus “book reviews” by people who claim to have read TSR but who, like Prof. Gates, obviously have never seen it. Amazon.com, the largest internet bookstore, currently has these kinds of bogus “reviews” posted on its TSR page. The 1991 publication of The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews has generated a number of books, articles, pamphlets, and letters to editors—all designed to hide massive Jewish involvement in the trans-Atlantic slave trade, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. It is noteworthy that none of these books has even attempted to rewrite Black–Jewish history to show Jews as “friends” of Blacks in any way, shape, or form.

Jewish Encyclopedia (1901): "In fact, the cotton-plantations in many parts of the South were wholly in the hands of the Jews, and as a consequence slavery found its advocates among them."
