According to organizers, a sold out crowd filled the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center on June 26 to see the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan deliver a major public addressed titled "Who Are The Real Children of Israel?"
For many centuries, scholars and historians and seekers have differed in their opinions regarding the subject and on this night Minister Farrakhan delved deeply into the subject, solving the mystery once and for all.
"I don't want to waste any time. I asked the question "Who Are The Real Children of Israel?" and I'd like to answer it right away. Like any good lawyer in a courtroom, he tells you what he is going to prove. And then he goes ahead and proves it--then let the jury make the decision," said Minister Farrakhan.
"The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said that Almighty God, Allah, revealed to him that the Black people of America are the real Children of Israel and they, we, are the choice of God and unto us He will deliver His Promise," said Minister Farrakhan.
Prior to introducing Minister Farrakhan, Student Minister Abdul Sharrieff Muhammad of Atlanta announced that over 13 million people were tuning into the message via the airwaves. Multiple presenters spoke before Minister Farrakhan including several representatives from the Concerned Black Clergy group of Atlanta.
"This question says that somebody has usurped our position. This question says that somebody has taken the promise of God to the Children of Israel and claimed it for themselves. But those of you Biblical and Quranic scholars, today, we are prepared to call out the scholars of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. If you can disprove what we say today--then I will pay with my life for lying," said Minister Farrakhan to the audience.

Reference material for us to digest
During his message, Minister Farrakhan announced the release of the book "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews" Vol. 2 and urged everyone to purchase a copy of it. He also stated that a copy of this book, along with a letter from himself, has been sent to the White House, leaders of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), scholars and soon to be sent to all college professors to study.
According to the The Nation of Islam Historical Research Department, "Simply put, there is no book in existance that dares to document and share such little known facts. This is a rare treasure and accurate account of history involving the methodical manner by which the Black American Economy was seized." To read more visit: http://www.blacksandjews.com
Minister Farrakhan also mentioned a video he watched titled "The Cotton Pickin Truth... Still on the Plantation", that discusses present day slavery in the South! Here is the trailer below and I am trying to find where it can be purchased.

"It is not me, it's who's backing me, that you should be afraid of."
"Like Blacks said Clinton was the first Black President, Jewish people say Obama is the first Jewish President"
"We really need to study the architecture of White supremacy and what was done to us as a people"

What did the people think? Here are a few comments copied from Twitter and Facebook
"Love it ! That is how a real man of God speaks!"
"The message was incomplete. I wish he would have completed it! But that only means I have some reading to do myself!"
"THE single most powerful teaching on the True State of Our Condition and How we got like This!!"
"powerful... jews/isreal is a touchy subject that ppl dont wanna speak on.. glad he did"
"It may have been the most powerful speech he has done.. filled with power and truth........."
"We who support The N.O.I. and Minister Farrakhan are going to have to be on our P's and Q's concerning this lecture, reparations, point 12 of The Muslims Want And Believe. I will definitely purchase both books on The Secret Relationship Of Blacks And Jews and purchase the DVD of this lecture"
"I think someone in the Jewish world will be mad at Farrakhan in the morning. I'm just sayin! Dang Farrakhan!"
"Even those of us who consider ourselves conscious, have to admit that Minister Farrakhan broke off some knowledge in a way nobody has ever done. Let's humble ourselves, go back and watch the video, study the books he referenced and prepare for the war. No time to be punks!"
"I hate history class in school but Farrakhan kept my attention every second. So its official, we Black people ARE the real Children of Israel...uh oh, somebody doesn't like that! So what! Black people love yourself and claim what is yours."
