    Ideology:

    Rizza Islam’s most common claims include popular NOI talking points and other offensive tropes and conspiracy theories, including:

    * Jewish people today are not “true” Jews (he often uses the spelling “Jew-ish” to indicate this derogatory connotation)

    * Jewish people control the media and Hollywood, and use that control to censor Black people

    * Jewish people disproportionately owned slaves or controlled the slave trade

    * Jewish people and members of the LGBTQ+ community are pedophiles or promote pedophilia

    * The LGBTQ+ so-called “agenda” is part of a calculated effort to feminize Black men and bring on the extinction of Black people

    * No one is born gay; it is forced upon them through chemical manipulation by the government and “international bankers”

    * Vaccines cause autism, illness or death, particularly in Black children

    * Vaccines are part of a governmental depopulation plot targeting Black people

    History and Rise in the Nation of Islam:

    Rizza Islam was born in Compton, California, in 1990. He was a member of the Nation of Islam and attended the local NOI mosque as a young child, though he also became involved in the Church of Scientology. His mother, Hanan Islam, and his adoptive father, Alfreddie Johnson, were the executive director and founder, respectively, of a Scientology-backed nonprofit organization called World Literacy Crusade. Mr. Islam took on various roles within the organization throughout his teenage years.

    In the mid-2010s, Mr. Islam and his family ran into legal trouble stemming from their involvement with Scientology and World Literacy Crusade. Mr. Islam, along with some of his siblings and his mother, were arrested on Medi-Cal fraud and insurance fraud charges in California in 2015. In recent years, Mr. Islam has largely downplayed references to his Scientology past.

    Though Mr. Islam had participated in NOI-related events previously, including training Fruit of Islam members while working at World Literacy Crusade, it was around the time of his 2015 arrest that he became a more active NOI member. His association with Scientology and preestablished relationships within NOI likely contributed to his rapid rise within the organization’s ranks. World Literacy Crusade and its associates, including Johnson and NOI’s Tony Muhammad (Farrakhan’s Western Regional Representative and Rizza Islam’s mentor at NOI’s Los Angeles mosque), played a key role in forging an unlikely relationship between Farrakhan, NOI and Scientology in the 2000s.
