Over the last ten years, I warned you about Muslim polygamy in America, repeatedly on this site and elsewhere (including here and here). I know for a fact that it’s going on all over the country and that Muslim men in America often marry multiple women in the mosque, but only one “legally” with a marriage license, so that they can avoid prosecution and their other wives can collect all kinds of Medicaid, AFDC, food stamps, and other entitlements. And I’ve written about how Muslim men have gotten away–as several have in cases in Dearbornistan–with impregnating under-aged women, because they are “married” in the eyes of the mosque and Islam.
As Oprah and a hit HBO series (“Big Love”) consistently focus on fundamentalist Mormon polygamy in America, and as federal prosecutors continue to go after Warren Jeffs and his acolytes, our authorities and mainstream media, as I’ve noted, look the other way on Muslims who have the same marital and underage sex practices. But with today’s Detroit Free Press front page story, perhaps this is changing . . . slightly.
Meet Dr. Kenneth Mitchell a/k/a Mustafa Mohamed, a successful Detroit-area podiatrist, who converted to Islam and was married to three women at the same time–two of them under the auspices of California and Michigan, which would qualify him for polygamy charges. I bet, though, that authorities don’t go after him because he’s Muslim.
The one-time Lutheran Protestant converted to Islam in 2002, traveled to Saudi Arabia twice on the hajj, and also goes by the name, “Mustafa Mohamed.”
During a single week in August, the world of Faye Miller, a 51-year-old stay-at-home mom in Rochester Hills, came crashing down when she started to examine her marriage at the suggestion of her therapist.
Through Google and phone records searches she learned:
* Her husband of 10 years, Dr. Kenneth Mitchell, a metro Detroit podiatrist, already had a wife in California when he married her in 1999.
* And in 2003 he had married yet another woman [DS: a Muslima, Shazia Malik], a podiatrist in Quebec.
Equally astonishing, Mitchell, 48, a practicing Protestant who belongs to a Lutheran church with Miller, had converted to Islam in 2002, taken the Arabic name Mustafa and traveled twice to Saudi Arabia on religious pilgrimages, according to court records.
Mitchell, who operates several podiatry clinics in metro Detroit, declined through his attorney to talk.
Unfortunately, his Michigan wife and victim, Faye Miller Mitchell (age 51 and a stay-at-home mom) must pick up the pieces. She has two kids with him (the other victims of Islam here), didn’t know about his other marriages, and hopes he’ll pay $4,000 a month in child support. Good luck with that.
