Nation of Islam Received Farm Subsidies From U.S. Government
National Review – Over $100,000 in farm subsidies between 2008 and 2011 went a charity arm of the Nation of Islam, according to a new report from a watchdog group.
The group, Open the Books, traces the money to the Three Year Economic Savings Program, a NOI charity whose headquarters are listed at Louis Farrakhan’s home address. According to the NOI website, contributions from the charity were used to purchase farmland in Georgia now known as Muhammad Farms. “In 1995 we planted and harvested 76.3 acres of land, including watermelons, cantaloupes, sweet corn, snap beans, okra, yellow squash, zucchini, butternut squash, peas and greens,” the site says.
