Islamic Terrorism's Fave Coffee Opens In Detroit's Airport (Debbie Schlussel New Fallujah Alert)

Islamic Terrorism's Fave Coffee Opens in Detroit's Airport By Debbie Schlussel

If you live in one of the many areas around the U.S. (and elsewhere in the world) where Caribou Coffee is sprouting, please don't patronize this coffee chain. That includes people waiting at baggage in Detroit Metro Airport's McNamara terminal, where the store has now been awarded the exclusive, coveted slot.

In the past, I've written about Caribou Coffee's ties to Islamic terror in the New York Post (a version of the article appears here)and discussed it on Fox News Channel's "O'Reilly Factor" and MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews." Here's an interview I did with Business Forward magazine about this poisonous coffee.

Besides employing, for years, an Islamic cleric who is the spiritual leader of the terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood (where Qaeda's Al-Zawahiri and Yasser Arafat got their start), the company is owned by mostly Saudis (not the cute Minnesota couple, whose pic is displayed in the store). The company claims it fired the cleric, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi(there is no way to verify he was really fired, and reportedly is still on the payroll), but why did it hire the David Duke of the Islamic world, in the first place, and fire him only when it got caught? Al-Qaradawi urges homicide bombings against not just Jews, but American soldiers. And Caribou has an equally strong to Al-Qaeda's top financier (stay tuned on that).

So, now, Caribou Coffee has opened in Metro Detroit's primary baggage claim area, the only business there. It will make tons of money, I'm sure. But if you're an American against terrorism, you'll skip buying their cup of Jihad Java. The store will have plenty of other customers from around Detroit, the heart of Islamic America.

There are several other restaurants at Detroit Metro Airport with direct ties to Islamic terrorism. Stay tuned for more on this and Caribou Coffee.

We back them not because we agree with the way they run their country but because their putative replacements are far worse. Its the lesser of two evils and a bunch of Saudi democrats aren't exactly waiting in the wings to take over if the monarchy falls.

Which is exactly why the liberals oppose them.

Arcapita acquires one of the largest private gas storage operators in the United States
Posted: 20-09-2005 , 07:09 GMT

Arcapita Bank B.S.C.(c), a leading Bahrain-based investment firm, announced today that it and its co-investors have acquired a majority equity interest in Falcon Gas Storage Company Inc., (“Falcon”), one of the largest independent owners of natural gas storage capacity in the United States. The total value of the transaction was approximately $100 million.

Falcon owns, develops, and operates a portfolio of strategically located natural gas storage facilities in Texas and Alabama. The company’s Alabama facilities are particularly well positioned to serve the important markets in the southeast of the United States, including Florida.

With Arcapita’s support, Falcon plans to complete two major expansions of existing facilities and commence development of a third, consolidating its leading position in the market. Falcon Gas provides natural gas storage services to a broad range of companies in the energy sector including power producers, electric and gas utilities, energy traders and gas producers.

Atif A. Abdulmalik, CEO of Arcapita, said: “As the world’s largest consumer of natural gas, US demand for gas storage facilities is considerable. Falcon is well positioned to profit from the fast growth in gas demand as the company adds scale.”

“Falcon is one of the few non-regulated gas storage operators which can provide service at market rates, and its facilities are located close to key strategic markets. There is a limited supply of suitable and viable storage facilities in the United States and regulatory and legal barriers mean it can take years to develop new facilities.” said Asim Zafar, Head of Arcapita’s Asset-Based Investment line of business.

Falcon is Arcapita’s latest addition to a portfolio of 33 investments in the US and Europe. “Falcon joins investments such as Caribou Coffee, Church’s Chicken and the Sunrise assisted living portfolio in the US and South Staffordshire Water and the Shurgard self-storage portfolios in Europe. It once again demonstrates our commitment to providing our GCC investors with a diversified range of investment opportunities around the world,” added Mr. Abdulmalik.

Islamic finance has been growing rapidly over the past three decades and is expected to experience double-digit growth in the near future. The industry is currently estimated to be worth more than $230bn in assets worldwide.

Islamic banks now participate in a wide range of financing activities, from simple Sharia-compliant retail products to highly complex structured finance and large-scale project lending. Muslims and non-Muslims can now obtain 'Islamic' credit cards, insure their property according to Islamic methods and invest online in Islamic funds. Sharia compliant mortgages from US firms are now possible as well.

IIRC, writer Paul Sperry said that a lot of the airport shops in Washington, D.C.
are owned/operated by Middle Easterner/Muslim types.

It's a shrewd way to provide a secure conduit for illicit weapons or illegally
moving foreign nationals around...if you essentially run part of the
major transportation hubs.

At least the Black Muslim Bakery cart at Oakland Airport is easy to spot and avoid - it is usually staffed by a very large female "taste tester" wearing a white headscarf. ;)
