During a speech following his return from a visit to Iran, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan denied having referred to Jews as termites, but said that if he had said it, people should have responded by saying "damn right." He suggested that those who criticized his statements should examine themselves at see what it is that is "eating at the foundations of [their] moral discipline." He also said that white Jews are not real Semitic people who are native to Palestine, and said that Ashkenazi European Jews have no connection to the holy land. He said that they "crept out of Europe" and stole the birthright of the Semitic Jews, and that they are therefore the real anti-Semites. Farrakhan then called his "enemies" to a "show-down" at Madison Square Garden, saying: "Come on out, [Jonathan] Greenblatt of the ADL, and bring [former director Abraham] Foxman with you…" Come on out, Alan Dershowitz… We won't kill you, even though you may be worthy of death." The crowd cheered excitedly at Farrakhan's remarks. The speech was uploaded to the Nation of Islam's YouTube channel on November 18, 2018.
