Jews as Parasites and Jews as Termites: From the Nazis to Farrakhan

There is no hiding the ugliness of Louis Farrakhan's latest anti-Semitic comments, in which he likened Jews to termites. There is one thing you do with termites. Exterminate them!

Termites are destructive. Termites are nasty. Termites survive by destroying. Termites do nothing good. Rid the earth of them!

My good friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, was therefore right to tweet this in response: "Louis Farrakhan calling Jews termites is a virtual call to genocide. The Nazis regularly referred to Jews as roaches and pests who needed to be exterminated. I call on African-American leaders like my close friend @CoryBooker to immediately condemn this vile and loathsome attack."

These were Farrakhan's exact words from a speech on Oct. 14 in Detroit, where he mocked his Jewish adversaries: "I can go anywhere in the world and they've heard of Farrakhan ... I'm not mad at you, because you're so stupid."

Then, a little later in his speech, he said, "when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, call me anti-Semite ... I'm anti-Termite. I don't know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference."

He then reinforced his message with this tweet, linked to a video from his message: "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite."

Remarkably, Twitter has declined to act, leaving Farrakhan's tweet intact. This is beyond crazy. This is immoral.

In 1943, the Nazis printed an educational pamphlet titled, "The Jew as World Parasite." (In German, "Der Jude als Weltparasit.")

It begins by saying:

In this war for the very existence of the German people, we must daily remind ourselves that Jewry unleashed this war against us. read more
