ADL Director Abraham H. Foxman says Farrakhan has become "obsessive, diabolical and unrestrained" in his hatred of Jews.
Farrakhan sent a letter to the ADL director and numerous other American Jewish leaders along with what the ADL describes as two virulently anti-Semitic "histories."
One of the volumes accuses Jews of working for centuries to financially undermine black people.
Farrakhan has "opened a new chapter in his ministry where scapegoating Jews is no longer just part of a message, but the message," Foxman says.
In his letter accompanying the texts, Farrakhan extends an offer to open a dialogue to help repair "the damage that has been done by your ancestors to mine."
