NOI and New Black Panther Party
Publications

The NOI has consistently used its programs, institutions and publications to disseminate its message of hate.  The group's newspaper and Web site, The Final Call, has published anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and promoted anti-Semitic literature, which are also sold at NOI events. 

Among the items for sale is
The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, a major NOI publication written by the organization's "Historical Research Department" in 1991.  It is one of the most significant anti-Semitic works presenting a multi-layered attack against Jews, arguing essentially that slavery in the New World was initiated by Jewish ship owners and merchants.  This alleged domination of Blacks by Jews has continued into the present day, according to Farrakhan. 

A second volume of the book, titled The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews Volume Two: How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy, has been heavily promoted in The Final Call and during NOI events since its release in summer 2010. The second volume expands on many of the original allegations that Jews played a disproportionate role in the transatlantic slave trade, which it claims resulted in deep and prolonged repercussions for African Americans. It further alleges that Jews refrained from participating in the abolition movement out of tolerance for the system of slavery and blames Jews for promoting a myth of black racial inferiority. 

Another book published in 2010 and available through the NOI is Jews Selling Blacks: Slave Advertising by American Jews, essentially a compilation of newspaper advertisements that purports to present "disturbing evidence of American Jewish participation in the Black African slave trade."

The NOI also sells The Synagogue of Satan, published in 2005 by the Truth Establishment Institute and written by the NOI member Ashahed Muhammad.  The book takes its title from a phrase in the New Testament book of Revelation (3:9), and applies this phrase to contemporary Jews and to Jews throughout history.  The book's overarching theme is that unknown to most, the world is being manipulated and corrupted by Satanic powers led by Jewish elites.  In exposing these powers the book trades heavily in Jewish conspiracy theories and Holocaust denial. It alleges that these Satanic powers are influenced and guided by the theology of Judaism, and by an inherent Jewish predilection for immorality.

The themes of The Synagogue of Satan derive from a 1995 speech by Louis Farrakhan in which he claimed that Jewish organizations control the Federal Reserve, and a May 2003 speech in which he called Jewish members of the Bush Administration a "synagogue of Satan."

The NOI has promoted the book since mid-October 2005, just after the 10th Anniversary Million Man March.
  The significant extent of the NOI's involvement in the work's development is described in the book's acknowledgments, where Ashahed Muhammad thanks NOI Minister Jabril Muhammad and the "Historical Research Department" of the NOI (which authored The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews) for their encouragement and editorial assistance.
