Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

The White Jews have denied the “Black Jews” whom they met already in India this authentic Israelite heritage. They spread propaganda that the “Black Jews” were really converted native Indians, manumitted slaves of “true White Israelites,” or the offspring of ancient White Jews and local women.
