The Best Editorial Page Saudi Money Can Buy

By Debbie Schlussel

Ever since Nolan Finley seized control of the Detroit Newsistan editorial page from the far more talented and bright Thomas Bray, the page has become extremely dumbed down and, far worse, Islamist-occupied territory. As I’ve noted, Finley and his effeminate op-ed page editor, Richard Burr, have made the Newsistan the only major newspaper in North America to give a regular opinion column to an agent of the Government of Iran and Hezbollah, though they never note that in his “tagline.”

But, now, they’ve also made their editorial pages the print real estate of the Saudi Government. They repeatedly give column space to Frank Richter, who is officially paid by the Saudi government, to deliver propaganda speeches and write propaganda op-ed pieces, another one of which runs in today’s Detroit Newsistan.

Except, as usual, you’d have no idea that Richter is a paid agent of Saudi government disinformation, but for me telling you. That’s because the incompetent Finley and effeminate Burr don’t see fit to tell you that anywhere on their editorial page, and again, they chose to hide this little, inconsequential fact on their pages, today.

The piece by Saudi agent Richter speaks of “Jewish terrorist attacks” and claims that

Jewish . . . terrorists continued to kill British soldiers in Palestine. The postwar Brits grew tired of seeing their soldiers slaughtered in weekly news footage.

Uh, here’s a reality check: Jews did not “slaughter” or kill British soldiers in then-Palestine. In fact, the only known incident–the bombing of the King David Hotel–happened only after the Irgun, the Israeli freedom-fighters, dropped leaflets and warnings to abandon the hotel and that they were going to bomb it. They did so because they did NOT want to kill British soldiers or anyone else. They wanted Jews to be able to live in peace and freedom and to be able to respond to Arabist violence.
Then, there is this BS:

In Palestine, Jewish terrorist attacks finally persuaded the British to pull out.

WRONG again. The Brits pulled out, if anything, because they were tired of Islamic/Arab violence (there was no Jewish violence against the Brits) against British soldiers, and because eventually the land was carved up into Israel, Jordan, etc.

Then, there’s this BS:

The 1967 Arab-Israeli war led to two Palestinian intifadas and gave birth to Arab terrorism and suicide bombings.

Interesting claim, since the P.L.O. terrorist group was founded in 1964, and there were myriad Islamic terrorist attacks and intifadas (uprisings) against Jews in the 1920s, the 1940s, etc., etc., etc., ad naseam.
The Six-Day War, the war’s REAL name (which the Arabs and Saudi paid agent Frank Richter don’t want to acknowledge because it’s so embarrassing that the entire Arab world was defeated in 6 days by tiny, Jewish Israel), was a defensive war for Israel’s survival. It didn’t cause Islamic terrorism (which was around for decades–no, centuries–before), and it didn’t cause suicide bombings. Anyone with an iota of Mid-East knowledge (instead of a fat Saudi-supplied bank account) knows that.

Oh, and the piece also chastises Bosnian Serbs for massacring Bosnian Muslims, but not a word about Muslims who massacred and continue to massacre Christians in that region.

Next time you read the Detroit Newsistan–especially its Saudi-, Islamist-occupied op-ed page–consider a better use of your time and the page: kitty litter box-liner.

I used to buy it, and the Free Press too. Most of the time I didn’t make it to the second or third page. Both usually ended up in the dumpster, nice and clean.
Now that I’m away from Michigan, I don’t bother visiting them online. When I feel homesick, I just check the website of my Michigan local paper to learn what’s going on locally and statewide.
The Detroit News (and the Free Press) could be used as Toilet Paper, like their sister book, the Koran. I heard that Jihadist writings can help fight “global warming” as well as the Infidels.
We owe it to Al Gore.

The King David Hotel (1946) is dredged up by every dhimmie defender of the jihadis. Islamists detonated 500 bombs in one day in very recent history, yet the Hotel incident from 60 years ago is still used as the trump card.
Another detail… it is reported that the British leadership in the hotel refused to take the warnings seriously with one of them remarking “I don’t take orders from Jews.”
The other leftist trump card is the IRA. Last I checked the IRA wasn’t calling for worldwide death squads to kill women and children wherever they roam free. The IRA is equated with “Christianity” by the left. They refuse to understand the difference between “norm” and “aberration.”
It’s sickening to see how far leftists who purport to love “liberty” will go to apologize for Islam and its outcomes. Islam has never brought peace. Wherever it goes, it brings war, vicious persecution, mysogyny and bloodshed.

Deb,
Don’t feel alone.The same bullsh*t appears in a number of national newspapers.The Boston Globe has a guest (usually Friday) op-ed anti-Israeli columnist by the name of H.D.S. Greenway.
I refer to him sarcastically as High.Dhimmi.Sycophant. Greenway whose foul vaporings frequently demonstrate little understanding of the demographic history of the area and always displays a friendly preference for the A-rabs.Can’t imagine why the “bow-tied-bum-kiss’ers” (yes,the lefty socialist’s really wear them) never print my letters to the editor at “The Boring Broadsheet”.
Anyway,I don’t bother sending them anymore…I guess I don’t fit their template for Political Correctness.Heh,heh,heh.

The equivalent of ‘suicide bombers’ have been noted for hundreds of years of Islamic conquest and turmoil within Islam. Granted they didn’t have a bomb, but these ‘suicide assassins’ knew it was a one way expressway to Allah. They would infiltrate the enemy and when the opportunity strikes, they would stab the target. Since these attacks would almost always occur in crowds, they knew they would be instantly killed by guards. Same thing, same old, old thing. Just a lot more effective since you can take more than one with you.

Debbie,
During the Clinton war in the Balkans, I was not aware, it was President Clinton who brought the jihadis into Bosnia to fight the Serbs. I guess he thought that Muslims would like us better if we took their side in that conflict. Wrong!!He figured they would go home after the conflict. Not so. They stayed. They are intermarrying with Bosnian Muslims and creating terrorist cells. We now have terrorists in the middle of the Balkans again. To bad for the Serbs that gave their lives to get rid of this menace the last time around, when the Turks were slaughtering Christians for some 500 years.
And to bad our countrymen do not know any of this history. You know what they say, those that don’t know history are bound to repeat it. And President Clinton must not have taken this history class. Our next president should be drilled about the history of this enemy!!!!!!!!Those are the questions I would be asking at the debates.
There is an audio, I can’t remember where I saw it, where Dennis Praeger discusses the history of the Crusades( there were more than one) with a scholar. Pretty fascinating piece. Check it out.
If we all knew history like some of the scholars, these agenda driven newspapers would be out of business by now. But we all know that when a lie is repeated enough times without being challenged, it becomes a fact. So, let’s make sure that our friends at least know the truth.

Also let’s not forget that it was Prez. “SlickWillie” Clit-ton (sorry Deb) who had U.S. warplanes REPAINTED w/ U.N. colors and markings in Spain…then Gen. Wesley Clark ordered them to bomb the Serb’s.This resulted in much damage to Serb infrastructure and thousands of innocent Serb deaths.
Dam them both to hell for siding with the scum of the earth…a/k/a Moslems.

And don’t forget all the cancer that is now rampant, from, God knows, what that was in those bombs, babies being born with deformities, women miscarrying babies. How about some reparations for this gigantic blunder for this mostly Christian nation. There were senior citizens committing suicide because they had nothing to eat following President Clinton’s little Muslim love fest.
I guess we’ve forgotten our allies of WWII and their sacrifices. Anyway, we’re just talking about Christians. They won’t do anything to retaliate. They’ll just sit there and turn the other cheek.

Exactly and well said IC – glad to see your posts again!
-I’m so glad Billybob mentioned what Wes Clark is really about – not enough people are informed about what he did in that war!

It’s easy to forget who the true enemy is. Richter is just a stooge of the Saudis. But they are just puppets of The Enemy – Satan.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:12
Satan, calling himself “allah”, found in Mo an illiterate, gullible vessel into which to pour his vision of death and slavery. What we see now is the “fruit” of this satanic cult nutured by The Enemy himself.
The Saudis and their useful idiots, like Richter, are simply Satan’s tools.

WillPower on July 28, 2007 at 10:29 pm

The actual cause and effect Richter failed to mention that really caused all the mayhem and violence was not the pull out of Peace Keeping Troops, but that little tiff between Cain and Abel. [sarcasm]
There is such a thing as complicity which Richter also avoids mentioning. If the players in these scenarios truly want revenge then they will get it one way or another. If violence is in the hearts of these people then there is very little that Peace Keepers of any stripe, or at any time in history, can do about it.
As for the potential of resettling Iraqi refugees in the US, that is a non-starter. It would mean the terrorist have won. These Iraqis are not only helping us, but they are helping themselves achieve peace in their country, and to build a nation. If these people give up, what hope does Iraq have?
Should the suggested scenario come to pass and something must be done then that something should be resettling those Iraqis within a protected area of Iraq. Carve out a piece and let them defend it. Sort of like the three current Kurdish dominated provinces in northern Iraq.
But, absolutely no Iraqi refugess are to come to the US. The terrorists should not be allowed to win.

The Isreali and Arab governments are the worst form of terroists that exist. Both sides need to be wiped out and we need to start over. They are liars, thieves, and killers.
