Farrakhan Slams Critics: 'I Have Never Harmed One Jewish Person

"If anything, I admire them."

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, lashed out Friday night at those who would label him anti-Semitic, saying the accusation reflects "an attitude of hatred" that members of the African-American community must avoid in order to unite and grow strong.

"I have never harmed one Jewish person. All I've done is tell the truth of what was involved in the slave trade," Minister Farrakhan said. "But because I have been charged of being an anti-Semite, and because that charge has stuck ... I have suffered rejection by my own people. I have never hated the Jewish people. If anything, I admire them."

Minister Farrakhan, 77, made the remarks during an appearance on "The Bev Smith Show," a nationally syndicated radio program broadcast live Friday night from the August Wilson Center, Downtown.
