Farrakhan also reportedly has close ties to the leaders of the 'Woman's March' and has appeared in photos with former President Barack Obama, and Democrat Keith Ellison among others.
A video published by Iranian state television shows Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan leading an Iranian audience in the infamous "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" chants so often heard at political rallies in the country.
"Marg bar" the footage shows Farrakhan declaring; "Israel," the audience responds. "Marg bar," repeats Farrakhan; "Āmrikā," the audience chants.
The moment took place Sunday during his trip to Iran in which he declared his solidarity with the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism against America, which he condemned for sanctioning Iran and for its support for Saudi Arabia, Algemeiner reports.
America, he said, is "plotting" to undermine Iran's interests. "I understand how the enemies have plotted against the Iranian people and I would like to stay alongside you to stop their plots," said Farrakhan, describing America's alliance with Saudi Arabia as the work of "Satan," who "seeks to divide Muslims and wants them to kill each other, while God tells us in the Quran to be united."
