Farrakhan Appearance Irks Pittsburgh Jewish Community
Post-Gazette – Nationally syndicated radio host Bev Smith compares the Rev. Louis Farrakhan with Martin Luther King. Local Jewish leader David Ainsman likens him to a Nazi.
And those diverging views are creating quite a bit of controversy.
Rev. Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, is scheduled to speak Friday night at a town hall meeting organized by Ms. Smith on the subject of “The Disappearing Black Community.” He was originally going to appear along with U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., and civil rights leader Melanie Campbell.
