Financing Farrakhan

- Abstract

To the Editor:

Arch Puddington’s article, “Black Anti-Semitism & How It Grows” [April], offers perceptive insights into the susceptibility of certain black audiences to the recent outpouring of anti-Semitic propaganda. But the author makes no mention of the financial and other kinds of support Louis Farrakhan and others receive from radical Islamist governments and agencies for the specific purpose of conducting anti-Jewish campaigns.

This support provides an incentive to peddle anti-Jewish hate; for those hooked-in to this international network, anti-Semitism pays, and pays well—in power, influence, and cash.
