In Its Own Words "Our lessons talk about the bloodsuckers of the poor… It's that old no-good Jew, that old imposter Jew, that old hooked-nose, bagel-eating, lox-eating, Johnny-come-lately, perpetrating-a-fraud, just-crawled-out-of-the-caves-and-hills-of-Europe, so-called damn Jew … The NBPP claims to have been founded in 1989, although the group was not active until 1990.
and I feel everything I'm saying up here is kosher." — Khalid Abdul Muhammad, one of the party's future leaders, Baltimore, Md., Feb.

New black panther party intimidating voters
"There is no doubt that some people were hostile to this case," Adams said in a phone interview.
Andy Mc Carthy has an important story over at National Review Online that does an outstanding job of demolishing many of the myths being propagated about the New Black Panther voter intimidation case.
It is important, however, to highlight some specific testimony on one of those myths.
One of the constant refrains heard from liberals in their attempt to diminish the importance of the New Black Panther scandal is that there is no evidence that any voters were intimidated or prevented from voting.
Founded in Dallas, the group today is especially active on the East Coast, from Boston to Jacksonville, Fla. In September 1997, Khalid Muhammad said that he could not be anti-Semitic because Jews had no claim to the term "Semite." Members of the original Black Panther Party, which has no connection to the NBPP, have heavily criticized the New Black Panther Party. Bobby Seale, a famous founding member of the original Panthers, calls the organization "a black racist hate group." By injecting themselves into racially charged and other high-profile events, the NBPP has won considerable press attention.
