Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, the President of the Miami, Florida-based American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA), loves to promote anti-Semitism. The vehicle he uses to do so is social media. This past July, he took to Facebook to advertise a video of a speech made by Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan, a known anti-Semite who has described Judaism as "a gutter religion" and Adolf Hitler as "a very great man." Zakkout's spread of bigotry cannot and should not be ignored.
On July 29, 2017, Sofian Zakkout posted on his Facebook page a four-minute portion of a speech given by Louis Farrakhan at the Nation of Islam's February 2017 Saviors' Day. The video begins with Farrakhan castigating Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – saying Netanyahu has no "permanent home" there – and then quickly devolves into a ferocious hate fest against Jews, repeatedly labeling the Jewish people "Satan." Farrakhan states (with shouts of agreement from the audience), "Really, they're not Jews. No, that's Satan. You should learn to call them by their real name, 'Satan.' You're coming face to face with Satan, the Arch Deceiver, the enemy of God, and the enemy of the righteous."
