New Black Panther Says Jews Had Foreknowledge of
September 11 Attacks

New Black Panther Party Chief of Staff Hashim
Nzinga said Jews had foreknowledge of the September 11 terrorist attacks during his
appearance on FOXs Hannity & Colmes program on September 19, 2005.
Nzinga, who appeared on the program to discuss
Louis Farrakhans claim that the New Orleans levees were blown up to sacrifice black
neighborhoods in favor of white ones, was asked by host Sean Hannity if he thought that
Jews knew about the September 11 terrorists attacks ahead of time. Sir, you
know and I know, the world knows that now, Nzinga answered. Nzinga was then
asked the same question two more times and twice confirmed his original answer.
Nzinga has been involved in organizing events
Movement and march. During an
August event in support of the march at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, Nzinga said, We have to show the world
that the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party can work together and forget
about our differences.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, National Chairman of the New
Black Panthers, and co-convener of the Farrakhans upcoming Million Man
March, has himself made similar claims about Jews and the September 11 attacks. For example, at a July 2003 press conference in
Morristown, New Jersey, Shabazz said: If 3,000 people perished in the World Trade Center attacks and the Jewish population is 10
percent, you show me records of 300 Jewish people dying in the World Trade Center
Were daring anyone to dispute its
truth. They got their people out.
Shabazz also blamed the September 11
attacks on Jews during a three-hour meeting
in October 2001 with Muslims for Truth and Justice (an apparent ad hoc
coalition of several American Muslim organizations) at the National Press Club, which was
broadcast on C-SPAN. Amir Muhammad, an officer with the New Black Panthers,
reiterated Shabazzs remarks at the conference: There are reports that as many
as 3,000 to 5,000 so-called Jews did not go to work [at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon] that day, and we need to
take a serious look at that.
Nzingas tenure with the New Black
Panthers can be traced back to 1994, when he met former Panther leader Kallid
Muhammad. At that time, Nzinga became Muhammads personal assistant,
according to the New Black Panthers Web site. Muhammad later appointed Nzinga Chief
