The ‪Americans Against Antisemitism organization on Sunday called on Fox Broadcasting Co. to immediately cancel the planned July 4 broadcast of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan which is scheduled to air on Fox Soul TV.

In a video posted to social media, the head of Americans Against Antisemitism Dov Hikind, said, “How is that possible? How can Fox permit something like this? We call on Fox TV, we call on Fox Soul: Do not permit this man of the Nation of Islam, an organization that is classified as a hate organization, do not permit this hater to appear on your station, on national television.”

Farrakhan has blamed Jews for the trans-Atlantic slave trade and American slavery, accused American Jews of being part of the “Synagogue of Satan”, compared Jews to termites, warned of the eventual annihilation of whites, claimed that white people were artificially created by a mad scientist and calling them only “potential humans”, accused “the Jews” of helping Adolf Hitler “get the Third Reich on the road”.

Two years ago, he called the Talmud “filthy, so filthy,” and “ugly”, while deriding Jews as “Satanic people”.

Last year Farrakhan led a chant of “Death to Israel, Death to America” during a visit to Tehran.

In another incident, Farrakhan denied having ever used hateful or bigoted rhetoric, but once again referenced “Satanic Jews”, even though he said he did not believe all Jews fell into this category.
