25 On the LaRouchite-Nation of Islam connection, see Magida, "Evil Twins"; Benjamin, "La Rouche, Nation of Islam Team Up"; Marable, "No Compromise." For examples, see "´We Must Accept the Responsibility of Freedom´: An interview with Minister Louis Farrakhan," New Federalist, June 12, 1995, pp. 5-7; Dennis Speed, "LaRouche, Farrakhan, Chavis Mobilize Against Nazi Economics," New Federalist, July 15, 1996, pp. 1, 4. On Metzger's links with the Nation of Islam, see Wayne King, "White Supremacists Voice Support of Farrakhan"; Southern Poverty Law Center, "Klan leader attends Farrakhan rally," Klanwatch, Winter 1985.
The beginnings of the alliance between the LaRouchites and the Nation of Islam track back to the early 1990s. The Nation of Islam's
Final Call newspaper ran an article by LaRouchite Carlos Wesley on Panama in its issue of May 31, 1990, p. 10. It was credited as a reprint from the LaRouchite Executive Intelligence Review. The LaRouchite New Federalist ran several articles praising the political work of Nation of Islam spokesman Dr. Abdul Alim Muhammad (including articles on September 14, 1990, p. 1; and September 28, 1990, p. 10); and his speech at a LaRouchite Schiller Institute meeting in Paris was reported in the Nation of Islam's Final Call on December 24, 1990, p. 3. The Schiller Institute-Food for Peace Anti-War Teach In, December 15-16, 1990, featured Abdul Wali Muhammad, Editor of the Final Call newspaper as a speaker; the meeting program is on file at Political Research Associates. By 1992 joint campus appearances by representatives of Executive Intelligence Review, The Nation of Islam, and The Schiller Institute, featured attacks on the Anti-Defamation League (ADL); flyers are on file at Political Research Associates. This evolved into publications and speeches claiming the ADL was part of a conspiracy involving the Freemasons and the Ku Klux Klan, featuring a campaign to remove the statue of Confederate General Albert Pike from its pedestal in Washington, DC; see, for example, Marianna Wertz, "Pike Issue Before Congress," New Federalist, May 17, 1993, p. 1, which featured comments by the 1960s civil rights leader the Rev. James L. Bevel, an African American who has worked with the LaRouchites for many years. See also Brackman, Farrakhan's Reign of Historical Error.

28 In addition to those cited above (Berlet of Political Research Associates; Ramos, of the Western States Center; Mozzochi and Rhinegard of the Coalition for Human Dignity; and Novick of People Against Racist Terror), a number of progressive voices were raised against the growing recruitment within the Left by the Right, including author Sara Diamond; researcher Richard Hatch; Erwin Knoll, editor of the Progressive; author Holly Sklar; journalist David Barsamian, of Alternative Radio; Tom Burghardt of the Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights; Hank Roth of the online Progressive News and Views; Michael Albert of Z Magazine; and columnist Joel Bleifus of In These Times; among others.

33 The report did not make these claims, and in fact carried a number of cautions and caveats apparently ignored by many readers, but author Berlet heard the report interpreted incorrectly by several law enforcement officials and their consultants.
