Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan decried what he called Jewish control of the media and accused “Zionists” of trying to push America into war with Iran.

Farrakhan spoke for three hours on Feb. 26 before a crowd of thousands at the 82nd annual Saviors’ Day celebration in Chicago.

In his address, along with the accusation about a war with Iran, Farrakhan asserted that Jews were responsible for a controversial 2008 cover of The New Yorker that depicted President Barack Obama in Muslim garb, according to the Religion News Service.

“I’m not anti-Semitic, I’m just telling the truth,” he said. He also said that “in 100 years, they control movies, television, recording, publishing, commerce, radio, they own it all.

“Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood,” he added, “but they took it over.” Farrakhan also reportedly attacked Israel’s policies.
