    The University of Michigan, which is taxpayer-subsidized, issued on January 28-29 to counsel students who are nationals of the seven countries targeted by President Donald Trump’s executive action that temporarily prohibits the admission of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, while also ceasing to issue visas to them. In the January 29 statement, the university advised students who are citizens of the above countries that if they leave the US, they may not be allowed re-entry. Citizens of those countries must “understand that if you leave the United States - even in an emergency - you...
  • Michigan Muslims face reality of Trump victory: 'I pray for our community'

    For the city of Dearborn, Michigan, where one-third of the city’s 96,000 residents are of Arab descent, the presidency of Donald Trump is almost certain to be volatile and unpredictable. Just after 2.40am on Wednesday, when the election was called for the Republican nominee, Muzammil Ahmed, the chairman of the Michigan Muslim Community Council who attended an election watch party in Dearborn Tuesday night, tried to reach for a silver lining. “Our country has made a choice of a very flawed and unpredictable candidate,” Ahmed told the Guardian. “Although I’m deeply worried about our future, our community is not giving...

    The sign is clearly poking fun at Donald Trump, but unless people driving on Interstate 94 in metro Detroit speak Arabic — or have a buddy who can translate — they’ll be scratching their heads. . . . “I chuckled,” Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the Detroit News. “I laughed. Duh. This is how people feel in the community. It’s mocking Trump. It’s funny yet very appropriate considering the nonsense Donald Trump has continued to say about Muslims.”

    A Detroit suburb says a Muslim woman who accused police of forcing her to remove a headscarf has dropped her lawsuit. The city of Dearborn released a statement Wednesday saying an attorney for Maha Aldhalimi dropped the lawsuit when confronted with video evidence. […] But her attorney, Shereff Akeel, insists the lawsuit was successful because Dearborn now allows women to wear a head covering during a booking photo. …
  • Bernie Sanders Won America’s Largest Arab Community by Being Open to Them

    The Intercept ^ | March 9, 2016 | Zaid Jilani
    Bernie Sanders' upset in the Michigan primary Tuesday can be attributed, in part, to a strong showing in Dearborn, Michigan, which has the largest concentration of Arab Americans in the nation. Sanders won almost 60 percent of the vote there, besting rival Hillary Clinton. Apparently, something about Sanders resonated with residents. "Believing in something unpopular and fighting for those things is true courage and bravery. I feel personally connected to his message of humanism and peace," Mason Hinawi, a high school student and first-time Dearborn Heights voter, told The Intercept about his support for Sanders. "I know a lot of...

    Daily Wire ^ | 3/8/16 | Robert Kraychik
    Indirectly invoking the left-wing and Islamic narrative of Israel’s existence as the cause of political dysfunction in the Middle East, Senator Bernie Sanders implied to supporters at a campaign rally on Monday in Dearborn, Michigan - home of one of the nation’s largest Arab and Muslim communities - that “hatred and warfare” in the Middle east region were the fault of Israel. Praising former Democrat presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton for their presumably good faith-endeavors to resolve the Israeli-Arab conflict, Sanders implied that America unjustifiably treated the various parties unequally. In other words, allegedly favorable treatment of Israel at...

    Capitol Confidential ^ | 10/20/2015 | Tom Gantert
    The Dearborn Press and Guide has repeated a myth still perpetuated by many in the media when it wrote that state funding has been cut to public schools. A story about Glenn Maleyko, the new superintendent of Dearborn Public Schools, stated: Fewer people are going into teaching, which is understandable, he said. The pay scale is lower than what many professionals earn with a bachelor’s degree, and it takes longer these days for teachers to climb to the top of the pay scale, a change forced on districts by stagnant or reduced state funding. ForTheRecord says: Despite numerous erroneous media...
  • How Many Wives Can a Muslim Have on Welfare in Michigan? [VIDEO]

    07/25/2015 7:17:22 PM PDT · by UMCRevMom@aol.com · 29 replies
    The state of Michigan has a large and growing population of Muslims, and a majority of them have congregated in and around the Detroit area. In fact, the city of Dearborn has such a large Muslim population, that it has become colloquially known as “Dearbornistan,” and has even begun implementing aspects of Shariah law. Shariah law is a code of laws based on and guided by the Islamic faith. It generally allows for the mistreatment of women and views them as property, allowing a Muslim man to “own” multiple wives. Although polygamy is illegal in the United States, it is...

    Muslim agitation, attrition, the litigation jihad accompanies all counter terror programs in these United States. We are constantly being told, scolded, admonished and clubbed with the now well worn meme that “only a tiny minority” “a radical few” Muslims engage in jihad. And yet we never see Muslim organizations supporting, encouraging cooperation and applauding any counter terror efforts.Why is that? Based on everything we are constantly being told about moderate Muslims – this is an impossibility. And yet this impossibility is our constant companion.Is it any wonder there is a stream of young Muslims from these communities and mosques flocking...

    The University of Michigan canceled a scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” on Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film glorifies a “mass killer” and perpetuates anti-Muslim stereotypes. An online petition, titled a “collective letter from Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) and Muslim students on campus,” accused the school of “tolerating dangerous anti-Muslim and anti-MENA propaganda” by showing the Chris Kyle biopic, The College Fix reported. “The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim and anti-MENA rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” the letter reads. “Chris Kyle was a racist who took a...

    ecurity: A video by Somalia's al-Qaida-affiliated al-Shabab group warns Minnesota's Mall of America may be a repeat of a 2013 mall attack in Kenya. The Second Amendment may be our best defense against terrorism. The immense Mall of America in Bloomington would indeed make an inviting target for jihadists intent on martyrdom. Its 520 stores, the most of any mall in the world, attracts 40 million people annually and is a global tourist destination. It's as inviting a target and as much of an iconic symbol of Western capitalism and culture as was the World Trade Center on Sept. 11,...

    Al-Shabab terrorist on propaganda video seeking to inspire lone-wolf attacks on malls, including the Mall of America in Minnesota. Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson warned that a Somalia-based terrorist group is encouraging “independent actors” to carry out attacks in Western countries, with the Mall of America in Minnesota among the specific targets, but he failed to mention that the U.S. continues to import hundreds of high-risk Islamic refugees from Somalia every month. The U.S. State Department’s refugee-resettlement program has placed more than 100,000 Somalis into U.S cities and towns since the early 1990s – all of them Muslims hand-selected...

    A bizarre report from NBC News by Ayman Mohyeldin this morning broadcast during Meet the Press highlighted the city of Dearborn, Michigan, which has the highest Muslim population concentration of any city in America, as a beacon of American Muslim integration. As Jeffrey Myers at Newsbusters observed, Mohyeldin blamed U.S. foreign policy for increased radicalization inside the Muslim community: For some, radicalization and attacks against the U.S. stems from anger at American foreign policies and wars in the Middle East. While the overwhelming majority of muslims have successfully assimilated and integrated into U.S. society, the challenge remains to find individuals...

    Non-Muslim ‘no-entry’ zones have been multiplying all over Europe, and even popping up in cities here in the U.S. This should heighten every American’s awareness of the imminent danger we as a nation face. Once established, they are unsafe, and proving deadly for non-Muslims to inhabit or even to walk through the neighborhood.< These signs are being placed all over the UKParts of the UK have already become ‘no-go’ areas for police because minority communities are operating their own justice systems, according to the Chief Inspector of Constabulary.Honor killings, domestic violence, sexual abuse of children and female genital mutilations are...

    Hassan Sayed is looking at years in prison after beating his wife as their children looked on, then dragging her with a car. The incident was caught on tape. Sayed's wife was driving when he started to threaten her. She was so frightened, she pulled over and began to run from Hassan as their children watched. Away from her enraged husband, she called police. In the meantime, Sayed had gotten into the driver's seat. When his wife started to walk back to the car, Sayed started pushing her and punching her in the face. As she stumbles back to once...
