Open Hezbollah supporter (with terrorist ties), Nasser Beydoun (and several unidentified partners) recently bought the Fairlane Club of Dearbornistan, Michigan.
I’ve written a lot about Nasser Beydoun on this site. And the purchase is a symbolic changing of the guard at Ground Zero of Islamo-fascist America. The Fairlane Club, once a prestigious, exclusive health club, gym, and place to play tennis was opened in 1975 for wealthy Ford Motor Company executives, their wives, and families to exercise, play, relax, and hold catered affairs. It has courts and facilities for most sports, a spa, a state-of-the-art gym, and banquet and meeting rooms.
But, with ’70s decor and a matching aura, the club has been in decline for years, just as Ford is, and fell out of favor. It currently only has 2,000 members.
Beydoun’s purchase of the club raises eyebrows. Many Dearbornistan residents wonder where the money is coming from, both for the purchase and the extensive remodeling and other expenses he plans to undertake in reviving the club. Are the true investors Islamist Arab governments? Hezbollah?
Beydoun’s father, Mohammed, returned to the Hezbollah stronghold of Bint Jbeil, where he built a mansion and now lives. (We, U.S. taxpayers, however, paid to bring him back to the U.S., last summer, during Hezbollah’s war.)
And Beydoun is Secretary of a Dearbornistan-based Lebanese charity, which sends hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hezbollah-dominated South Lebanon, each year. Observers say the money is likely going to Hezbollah or Hezbollah-controlled facilities and organizations. Yet, the officials charged with investigating this sort of thing–U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy a/k/a “Abu Porno” and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent in Charge for Michigan/Ohio Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz”–are in bed with Beydoun, openly feting him at every turn.
Of note, one of Beydoun’s three fellow officers in the charity, was co-owner of a Dearbornistan department store property co-owned by Hezbollah financier, Talal Chahine (owner of “La Shish” Mid-East restaurant chain, from which he laundered $20 million to Hezbollah and evaded taxes), now a federal indictee and fugitive from justice, who escaped to Lebanon.
Then, there is Al Mabarat Charitable Organization, the U.S. affiliate of Al Mabarrat Association, headed by Hezbollah spiritual leader, Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah (who issued the fatwa to murder 300 U.S. Marines and civilians in Beirut and almost 100 civilians at the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina). Two of its Dearborn-based officers–Fouad T. Beydoun, Ahmad J. Bazzi, and Nazem Baydoun–are Nasser Beydoun’s cousins.
Nasser Beydoun is an open supporter of Hezbollah. As I wrote, he appeared and spoke at at least two Hezbollah rallies I attended last summer. His extremist rhetoric in support of the terrorist group matched other blatantly anti-American, anti-Semitic speeches at both events.
As head of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce, he made clear why America was a mere adjective in the title of his organization. Beydoun traveled all over the Mid-East telling Islamist groups that the purpose of his group was to get America to change its policies on Israel.
And the Fairlane Club will be no different. Add it to the list of Dearbornistan hang-outs where Hezbollah supporters can and do rally in support and secretly plan funding and money-laundering operations.
Incredibly, Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saul Anuzis was actively recruiting Beydoun to run for the U.S. Senate as the Michigan Republican nominee. That should tell you something about the state of the Michigan Republican Party, where supporting Jihad is not a disqualifier, but a resume-enhancing entry.
