American Jewish groups are outraged at Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for having an official with the fervently Orthodox, anti-Zionist group Neturei Karta speak at a recent meeting of the Nation of Islam. The Midwest regional director of the American Jewish Committee, Jonathan Levine, criticized Farrakhan for “passing off a tiny sect of Jews best known for equating Zionism with Nazism as representative of a new relationship with the Jewish community.”
