Obama's Pal Farrakhan: Obama's problems began by standing up to U.S. Jewish lobby, Zionists

(Haaretz).U.S. President Barack Obama is targeted because of standing up to the Jews who control American politics as well as its economy, the Chicago Sun Times quoted the leader of Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan as saying on Monday.

Farrakhan, speaking to a crowd of 20,000 followers at Chicago's United Center on Sunday, said that Obama's political problems began when he, according to the Chicago Sun Times report, stood up to the Jewish lobby during a White House meeting.

When they left the White House, his problems began," Farrakhan said, adding that "the Zionists are in control of the Congress."

Minister Farrakhan also referred to the U.S. president's chief economical advisors, Timothy Geithner, Henry Paulson and Larry Summers, asking "Who does he have around him? The people from Goldman Sachs."

The leader of the Nation of Islam added that "bloodsuckers of the poor" were rewarded with a bailout.

Abraham Foxman, director of the Anti-Defamation League, said in response to Farrakhan's speech that "anybody who thought the old Farrakhan was gone: He never was."

"It's the same Farrakhan: ugly and anti-Semitic. With age, he doesn't get milder, he gets uglier."
