SHOCKER: Photo Of Obama With Jew-Hater Louis Farrakhan Was Hidden For Years [FLASHBACK VIDEO]

A photo of former President Barack Obama smiling with the Minister of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, has surfaced thirteen years later.

The photographer, Askia Muhammad, said he took the photo during a Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) meeting in 2005, when Obama was an Illinois senator. He said he “gave up the picture at the time and basically swore secrecy.”

Muhammad believes if the photo had been released during Obama’s presidential campaign, “it absolutely would have made a difference.”

According to the ADL, Farrakhan has alleged that Jews were responsible for the slave trade and that they conspire to control the government, the media, Hollywood, and various Black individuals and organizations. He also frequently denies that Jews have a legitimate claim to their religion and to the land of Israel claiming that Judaism is a “gutter religion” and nothing more than a “deceptive lie” and a “theological error” promoted by Jews to further their supposed control over America’s government and economy.

Farrakhan claims Israel and Jews had a role in orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, stating “Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks” and that Jews were warned ahead of time not to come to work that day.

Muhammad said a staff member for CBC contacted him “sort of in a panic.”

“I understood what was going on,” Muhammad told Talking Points Memo. “I promised and made arrangements to give the picture to Leonard Farrakhan (the minister’s son-in-law and chief of staff.)”

Also in the picture is Farrakhan’s son-in-law Leonard Farrakhan Muhammad, his son and security chief Mustapha Farrakhan, Minister Farrakhan’s son Joshua Farrakhan, and the Reverend Willie Wilson, executive producer of the program for Farrakhan’s Million Man March in 1995, and a chairman of the 20th anniversary.

Muhammad said he gave away “the disk” from his camera but “copied the photograph from that day onto a file” on his computer.

“Realizing that I had to give it up, I mean, it was sort of like a promise to keep the photograph secret,” Muhammad said.

Republicans have long argued the media gave Obama a pass on his alleged ties to Farrakhan during his 2008 presidential run, though Obama argued he had “thoroughly denounced” Farrakhan.

Harvard Law Professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz said he would not have campaigned for then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) if he knew about the future president’s photo op with Louis Farrakhan.

Farrakhan is a “virulent anti-Semite and anti-American,” Dershowitz said on “Fox & Friends.”

“He has called Judaism a gutter religion. He is a horrible, horrible human being,” he said.

Muhammad said he thought the CBC was concerned a photo with Farrakhan could hurt the young senator’s future presidential aspirations.

Muhammad added that Obama had Nation of Islam followers working in his Chicago senate office.

Dershowitz said he threatened to leave the Democratic Party if Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) – who once had connections with Farrakhan – was elected chairman instead of Tom Perez.

“We should have nobody in public office associating with a bigot like Farrakhan,” he said.

  1. So what exactly is the shocking part? That he is buddies with the anti semite Farrakhan (who can forget his association with his minister Jeremiah Wright) or that this association with Farrakhan was hidden?

  2. The Dersh, and any other Jew who supported BHObama, are simply idiots.

    Davening with Jeremiah Wright for twenty years wasn’t enough?

    Launching his career in the home of terrorists Dorn and Ayers wasn’t enough?

    The secret speech he gave supporting Muslim terrorists that was snuffed by the L.A. times wasn’t enough??

    That one last piece of evidence of his rabid marxist antisemitism was needed??


  3. Why is everyone so surprised. Mr Obama grew up in Chicago where Farakahan also lives. Obama was a congregant in reverend Wright’s congregation. He also officiated at Obama’s wedding. Reverend Wright is an anti-semitic Palestinian supporter Why in the world does any think Obama changed his life long views just because he became president.

  4. Really now Alan? You didn’t know? or you conveniently chose to ignore all that was out there about this faker… It was well known to whoever was looking for the truth with a half of a brain…

  5. I’m completely shocked by the vitriol all of my fellow commentators are spewing forth at the revered former POTUS. He was by far the greatest thing to happen to this country since the discovery of the wheel- or perhaps the bread slicer. I’m certain that this is just a photoshopped attempt to discredit our venerated groundbreaking leader. We all know that he could never countenance he slightest bit of anti-Israel bias, and that the Jewish people rank higher in his eyes than any other! Please, my fellow YWN compatriots, do not be so small-minded!

  6. Why didn’t The New York Times print the newly found photo (covered up for 13 years) or have any article or comment about Barack Hussein Obama, a Shiite Muslim, broadly smiling, when he posed with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam and its members?

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), blasted President Obama for suggesting that an attack on a Paris Kosher grocery store had been random.

    The Texas conservative was referring to a cold-bloodedly, Freudian slip which revealed his anti-Semitism by diminishing the murder of Jews in Paris by Muslim terrorists with direct ties to Islamic State.

    Obama, in an interview published by Vox, the explanatory news site;

    “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots [never calling them “Muslim terrorists”] who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris,” Obama said, talking about the past hostage crisis at a Paris market.

    One wonders what he would have said or done if the “bunch of folks” were Muslims —like himself —instead of Jews.

    Why did Obama diminish the death of Jews in Paris by his language?

    Is Obama’s latent anti-Semitism why he refused to go or send John Kerry to Paris to protest their death while even Palestinian Muhammed Abbas, an anti-Semite, went?

    Cruz said, “No sentient being believes what occurred there was random. They were not shooting people at random, they were shooting Jews because of their Jewish faith.”

    Is Obama a covert anti-Israel, anti-Semite? Why is the NY Times suddenly silent on this matter.

    We can only imagine what the NY Times would do if it was Trump who posed with an anti-Semite.
