Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews

Submitted by Alan Silverman (United States), Jul 13, 2010 at 11:14

You mention the books by Brackman and Friedman demolishing the Protocols of Farrakhan, but you neglect the exhaustively researched and documented 1998 book by Eli Faber, "Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade". In the first paragraph of his Introduction he refers to "allegations that [Jews] dominated the slave trade and that they owned slaves well in excess of their proportion..." -- undoubtedly referring to the original pustule from Farrakhan's minions. Please consider amending your list of refutations.
