Charities For Terror (Debbie Schlussel Looks At Detroit Area Islamofascist Front Alert)
New York Post ^ | 09/19/06 | Debbie Schlussel

Posted on 09/19/2006 6:42:37 AM PDT by goldstategop

FBI agents yesterday raided the suburban Detroit headquarters of LIFE for Relief and Development (LRD), the largest Islamic charity in the country.

I first wrote about the group for The Post in 2003. Back then, FBI Director Robert Mueller was set to give an award to Imad Hamad, who heads the Midwest chapter of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC). But, after my Post article pointed out that Hamad was a subject in over a dozen terrorism-related investigations, the FBI revoked the award.

One of those investigations concerned Hamad's close ties to LRD. Both the FBI and the then-U.S. Customs Service (now ICE) had been probing the charity for possibly laundering money for Hamas.

It was long overdue. And there where very highly placed federal officials that have been seen in the company of known Islamic terrorists so who knows whether this FBI raid of LRD will lead to this Islamofascist front in America being shut down for good.

It needs be mentioned that Detroit is the biggest failure of American cities. Violent crime, poverty, joblessness, homelessness, gangster unions gone wild, public corruption, enormously expensive public schools producing killers, rapists, 14-year-old mothers, a 75% out of marriage birth rate ... the list is endless. A true Blue City "success story."

Well, it's about time Michigan woke up to the terror it is harboring.

Poll: Sinking Perceptions Of Islam
(IN) Although Americans believe they are better informed about Islam than they were five years ago, a new CBS News poll finds fewer than one in five say their impression of the religion is favorable. Forty-five percent of respondents said they have an unfavorable view of Islam, a rise from 36 percent in February. Americans today are also more likely than not to believe that Islam encourages violence, at least in comparison to other religions around the world. The poll finds 46 percent of Americans believe Islam encourages violence more than other religions, compared with 39 percent of Americans who felt that way two months ago. The last few months have seen escalating sectarian violence...

dearborn ( the arab section of detroit )

It's NOT the "Arab section of Detroit." Dearborn is Dearborn all by its lonesome. Home of Henry Ford, Greenfield Village (now The Ford), etc.

Husband is from a Detroit suburb. Get's ticked when someone says he's from "Detroit." :)

Dearborn is not the "Arab section of Detroit." Dearborn is a suburb southwest of Detroit that contains a large Arab population.

The particular "charity" that was busted yesterday is not even located in Dearborn, but in Southfield, a northern suburb, smack in the middle of a heavily Jewish neighborhood.

1)...see post #9
2)...have you ever driven through dearborn...i worked 2 blocks outside of dearborn in detroit for years, and when you drove through to get to michigan avenue ( lots of great restaurants for lunch ) there were tons of charitable organizations there. I did not specifically talk about the one in question, just relayed my observations of the area. Please read my post again.

That photo of the shank-waving Moo wasn't shot in the States, was it?

It sure as hell wasn't shot in TEXAS!

Dearborn is not a section of Detroit and not every store has Arabic writing on the signs. You are most likely thinking of Warren Ave. as you exit Detroit and enter Dearborn.

You did not drive "thru" Dearborn, you drove "in" East Dearborn.

"there is no east dearborn.....you must be thinking of dearborn heights."

Like I said, you don't know Dearborn at all. There is an East Dearborn and a West Dearborn, both in the City of Dearborn. Southfield divides the two and they are like two different cities.

"Schaefer Ave...."

Like I said, you did not drive "thru" Dearborn, you drove "in" East Dearborn.

It's East Dearborn that has the stores whose names you cannot read. West Dearborn seems to be staying the same. There's a lot of new construction and it's upscale. The line is drawn at Schaefer.

I suppose that Detroit does not have the East Side or West Side either. It's not on the map.......

I doubt you lived in Dearborn for 48 years.

You must be a native. I've lived here in Dearborn for two years. It just isn't the same as it was the last time I lived here in the 80's. We used to come in from the west for great shopping and good dining. Now it's the other way around.

Then I'm not surprised by your lack of knowledge of Dearborn. I would never presume to guess all of the nuances of Macomb County.
