'Nation of Islam' leader Louis Farrakhan accused Jews of poisoning him and Muhammed, the founder of Islam, during a speech in which he rejected claims he is anti-Semitic, the Middle East Media Research Institute reported.

During Farrakhan’s three-hour Fourth of July address, the 87-year-old black nationalist claimed that he had been poisoned by Jews, and that he had withstood the test, proving he is a prophet.

Farrakhan also accused Jews of poisoning Muhammed, the founder of Islam.

"In Jewish tradition, in the Talmud, the way they recognize that you are really from God - they poison you. And if you withstand the poison and remain alive - that to them is the witness that you are from God. Prophet Muhammad, whom I dearly love, was fed some lamb laced with poison. He and some of the companions ate that lamb, and some of them fell very ill. The Prophet was ill too, but he survived the poison.”

"They attempted to kill me, non-violently, with radiated seed.”

"They who have poisoned me didn't think I would make it,” said Farrakhan.

The Nation of Islam leader said he represented the end of Western civilization.

"Ms. Chelsea [Handler], my black brothers and sisters... The reason they hate me [is] because they know that I represent the end of their civilization. I represent the uncovering of their wickedness, fulfilling the judgment, that God has come to bring down on America and the world.”

“"So that's why they hate me, Americans. Because they are wicked and they know they cannot say that I am lying about them.”

Farrakhan went on to accuse Israel of training American law enforcement agencies to “kill better”, and claimed that city officials were intentionally flooding urban areas with guns, drugs, and counterfeit money – a technique he said was first developed by Israel.

"You mayors, you governors, stop your police from going to Israel to learn how to kill better. Your days of killing us without consequences are over. You will pay a heavy, heavy price.”

"George Floyd - when he knocked on the window... Over a so-called $20 [bill] of counterfeit money... You make guns, you make the drugs, you also make the counterfeit dollars. So if there is any counterfeit money in the hood, you put it there as a trap for us.”

Farrakhan then warned that the State of Israel “won’t be there long”.

"This is the technique that they use in Israel. Israel, let me tell you, your day is here now. You don't have to applaud. The God of justice has something for you, Israel. You are troubling some waters and you won't be there long, if God gets after you."
