“The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man. He wasn’t a great man for me as a Black person, but he was a great German. And he rose Germany up from the ashes of her defeat by the united force of all of Europe and America after the first world war.”William Saphire, “Black Muslim Leader Extols Hitler,” Jewish Telegraphic Agency, April 13, 1984, https://www.jta.org/1984/04/13/archive/Black-muslim-leader-extols-hitler.

“Now, I’m not proud of Hitler’s evils against Jewish people, but that’s a matter of record. He raised Germany up from nothing. Well, in a sense you could say there’s a similarity in that we are raising our people up from nothing. But don’t compare me with your wicked killers.”Internet Archive, “History of the Jewish Attack on Min. Louis Farrakhan,” posted by “apidta” on November 7, 2012, YouTube video, 12:17, Internet Archive, https://web.archive.org/web/20130415101221/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KP0nM8RyJgM ; “Minister Louis Farrakhan & the Jews: What is the Truth?,” Nation of Islam Research Group, March 16, 2018, http://noirg.org/news/min-louis-farrakhan-the-jews/.
