ONE LESS JEW-HATER: Son Of Louis Farrakhan Dies At Family Home In Arizona

The Nation of Islam says the oldest son of Minister Louis Farrakhan has died.

The group’s Chicago headquarters says 60-year-old Louis Farrakhan Jr. died over the weekend at the family home in Phoenix.

A statement on the Nation of Islam’s website says the younger Farrakhan had a heart condition and it appears he died peacefully in his sleep.

The statement says he worked alongside his father in fulfilling the mission of the Nation of Islam.

“We thank Allah (God) for the life of Louis Jr., his contribution to rise of black and oppressed people and for touching so many of us in a deep and very personal way,” the statement said.

“He worked alongside his father and family in fulfilling the mission of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam and his dedication and sacrifice to our cause will never be forgotten.”

The Nation of Islam has espoused black nationalism and self-reliance since the 1930s, but the elder Farrakhan has been known for provocative comments many of which are anti-Semitic or against the U.S. government.
