Who is Shahid Khan?: No Limbaugh for NFL; But Tax Cheat Muslim (Named for “Martyrdom”) A-OK

By Debbie Schlussel

The St. Louis Rams just announced that the team is being sold by relatives of late owner Georgia Frontiere to Shahid Khan, a Pakistani Muslim (who is named for Islamic martyrdom) from Illinois, who owns Flex-N-Gate Corporation, an auto parts manufacturer.  But what’s interesting is that when Rush Limbaugh was a minority partner in a venture to buy the Rams, the NFL and its Commissioner, Roger Goodell, objected.

Not so with Khan, even though  he’s had a number of questionable dealings with the IRS and tax problems.  Normally those would be a problem with the NFL ownership committee.  But maybe the NFL makes exceptions in the interest of Muslim affirmative action.  Hey, it’s a good thing the football is no longer made of real pigskin, right?  And in case you were wondering, his first name means “martyr,” as in martyr for Islam.  Islamic terrorists call themselves shahids.

So who is Shahid Kahn? . . . He and his wife are involved in some on-going financial legal battles. . . . Khan and his wife, Ann, filed law suits last summer in Champaign County Circuit Court against several financial advisors. The couple claims they lost money when misled on tax-advantaged investment strategies. According to court records, the IRS investigated the Khan’s tax returns between 1999 and 2003. They found potentially abusive [DS: translation, "illegal"] tax shelters involving $250 million.

Khan says he and his wife, Ann, quickly paid back the IRS $68 million, but he also appealed the payment. The Khan’s battle continues this week with his former financial advisors. They are being sued for negligence and professional malpractice for suggesting the couple invest in “distressed debt”, a strategy to lower taxes by using weak foreign currency. The next court date is scheduled for March 23.

Like I said, conservative minority owners in the NFL–verboten; but Muslim tax cheats named for Islamic martyrdom–YAY! Gee, I wonder if Mr. Khan will denounce HAMAS and Hezbollah. Actually, I don’t wonder because I know the answer: don’t bet on it.  And the spineless NFL and its owners won’t have the guts to ask him, either.

DS, In Pakistan there is a clear distinction between the two words may be Arabs march to different drummer. Anyway lets judge the guy on his merits. Even though I do not agree with Rush most of the time but I believe he should have been allowed to buy into the STL Rams. He family comes from Cape Girardeau Missouri while Mr Kahn is from the other side of the Miss river, Urbana Illinois.

Sammie on February 11, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Sammie, see my comment to the shahid/shaheed business above. Perhaps you really do not understand that these are the same thing.

    I am glad that you say that the action against Rush was wrong. But did you say this when it occurred? Why only on this web site now, and why not even right off the bat, but only on comment 100 or so?

    skzion on February 11, 2010 at 9:52 pm

      This is first time I saw this site and commented but I believe they did wrong to Rush last year when they refused him the opportunity to buy ownership. Any way if Mr. Shahid Kahn gets the ownership then it is a great American story and then STL Rams may have 160 million instant fans from Pakistan, so far they are only crazy about cricket which the terrorists are trying to destroy by attacking the visiting Sri Lanka team last year. Pakistani team won the world 20/20 Cricket championship last year and now no one will visit them now. Sad that bastards are succeeding…We need more drone to flush em out! No matter what they say for public consumption, Pakistan Army and the Zardari Government are in coohoots with US, they may not have chutzpah to say it loudly!

      Sammie on February 12, 2010 at 1:05 am

What about the rest of what I said?

Little Al on February 11, 2010 at 9:09 pm

He has no comment on THAT, Little Al.

skzion on February 11, 2010 at 9:52 pm

Why don’t you get your stuff straight. Khan provides jobs for thousands of people. Without people like him no jobs would exist and our country would be nowhere. Why don’t you think before you speak. Khan and his wife did nothing wrong. People like this should be phrased rather than persecuted against.

YOUUGLYSLUT on February 11, 2010 at 11:44 pm

skzion…grow up and find more meaningful ways to make use of your time. There’s Jews TODAY who choose to be Muslim. As a matter of fact, some Ashkenazis went on record to say my ancestry is of the ten lost tribes of Israel. I also know an Ashkenazi who is a Muslim. Learn how to interpret words through the actions of those who propagated them. And those who actually choose to follow by choice. Ever hear of “sufism”? That’s actually Islam in it’s correct and fullest practice, within the shari’ah.

And since you are so smart, did you know the worst person according to Islam is a Muslim hypocrite? You sure are well learned. And seriously, you are also really clueless on your own Scriptures. Not going to type out examples if you can’t find any “injustices”. Good luck with your approach to life.

Hassan on February 12, 2010 at 12:35 am

    Hassan, I see you continue to practice taqqiyah. This why I think there are few decent Muslims, just those with varying degrees of badness.

    “There’s Jews TODAY who choose to be Muslim. [blah blah blah].”

    Yes, and there are plenty of Muslims today who convert (secretly) to Christianity, which is what I recommend for you. Such Muslims, if they are in Islamic countries, must be secret about their conversion, as it would mean a death sentence, as Mo directed. When Mo started Islam in Mecca, he was laughed off by the Jews there. He gained only a handful of converts until he returned from Medina with a conquering force. That today a few oddballs convert from Judaism to Islam means absolutely nothing. It certainly does not negate the history of Islamic subjugation of the nonbeliever.

    “Ever hear of “sufism”? That’s actually Islam in it’s correct and fullest practice, within the shari’ah.”

    Uh, yes I have heard of Sufism. Its main differences from canonical Islam relate to the ummah, not to non-Muslims. To the latter, Sufism is just as nasty. However, the massive, overwhelming majority of Muslims are not Sufis, but Sunnis (90%) or Shiites (10%). Neither considers Sufiism to be Islam. It is irrelevant that you differ, as you have no authority and no followers.

    You know all this, of course, but you are practicing taqqiyah, as I noted above.

    “And since you are so smart, did you know the worst person according to Islam is a Muslim hypocrite? You sure are well learned.”

    I’m learned enough to know that this “touche” of yours is “coded” malarkey. A “Muslim hypocrite” is one who knows that Allah is God and that Mo is the last and greatest prophet but who persists in denying such “truths.”

    “And seriously, you are also really clueless on your own Scriptures….”

    So now, having failed the laugh test about Islam, you are teaching me about Torah?

    skzion on February 12, 2010 at 10:31 am

Yup, and Calypso Louie provides jobs to many people also, Hitler also reduced unemployment.

Little Al on February 12, 2010 at 1:15 am

Some people here don’t realize that the Rams staying in St. Louis was a big if after the 2014 season. When Mr. Khan bought the Rams, it was a relief.

Rams Fan on February 12, 2010 at 2:12 am

I was surprised to see your hateful article and even more surprised on how ill informed you are. Do you always pull stuff out of your ass like this. Here is a resourceful site where you can find the true meaning of the dude’s name.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shahid

May be next time you’ll actually look into the facts rather then make one up of your own.

And about that IRS lawsuit, May be you missed the fact that the current owners hired Goldman-Sachs to see all kind of financial reports on Khan. Obviously with a world known Goldman-Sachs reputation, they OKed this deal a GO. If their were any thing fishy with Khan’s financial troubles, Goldman-sachs would not have OKed the deal to the current owners.

You sound like a pissed off Rush who couldn’t get to buy the Rams.

rapheal jacob on February 12, 2010 at 3:42 am

Gee yeah — the Rams get to stay in St. Louis and the taxpayers get soaked one way or another to support this.

Yessir, the worst person is a Muslim hypocrite. If they’re lucky they get stoned, otherwise, the cemetery. I guess a Palestinian who doesn’t want to destroy Israel is such a hypocrite; they don’t stay alive very long.

Jews deciding to become Muslims. Of course no specifics. But of course it makes so much sense for Jews to join a ‘religion’ that regards them as subhuman, attacks them verbally and physically on a constant basis, discriminates against them in all Muslim countries at the very least, but why wouldn’t Jews want to become Muslims. AFter all, they can then be co-religionists of worthy individuals such as Hassan.

Little Al on February 12, 2010 at 4:47 am

    Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, whether you want to accept that or not is your choice.

    You people need to look in the mirror and wake up. When any muslim commits any crime, its assumed all muslims are the same. How about when Christians rape, molest, kill, and assualt others? Should I assume that all Christians are this way? Should I assume that all Christian religious leaders are perverts because whenever I turn on the television I see more priests getting called out for molesting kids?

    If Mr. Khan has been found guilty of tax fraud then chew him out for that, but to just assume he is some terrible person because he’s a Muslim is a moronic assumption on your part. You just go by whatever the media wants you to think (including Debbie). Wake up, go read a book about Islam, go talk to Muslims and then you’ll see what Islam is really about.

    Brian on February 12, 2010 at 10:02 am

      “Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, whether you want to accept that or not is your choice.”

      -”Brian” (who is almost certainly a Muslim but is lying about it).

      Islam is the fastest growing religion because it murders, displaces, and subjugates those with other faiths. No, I don’t accept it. Rather, I think we need to shrink Islam back to Arabia. The world would be much better without Islam and its Nazi founder Mo.

      Incidentally, your comment was pure boilerplate. Many hear are far better read about Islam than you. That’s why we are not tolerant of such an ideology.

      skzion on February 12, 2010 at 10:09 am

        skzion, Don’t assume you speak for all Jews. I have been taught by my rabbis, both conservative/traditional and reformed, to respect all religions, including Muslim. Just as all Germans were not Nazis or Nazi sympathizers, not all Muslims are fanatics.

        DS Translation of J’s comment: I’ve been taught by my fake rabbis to respect the new Nazis, and during the Holocaust, they were the same type of rabbis who did nothing and let the Jews die in the ovens while they preached “tolerance” of the intolerant over here. Now, I’m just looking for a Muslim to have sex with to make my life complete. It will give me that special psychic to find the 50 Muslims in the world who do not openly cheer Hezbollah and HAMAS. Oh, and I think those Muslims at Ford Motor Company who cheered the 9/11 attacks were “misunderstood.” And even if not, who are we to judge? DS

        Jacki on February 12, 2010 at 11:59 am

          “skzion, Don’t assume you speak for all Jews. I have been taught by my rabbis, both conservative/traditional and reformed, to respect all religions, including Muslim. Just as all Germans were not Nazis or Nazi sympathizers, not all Muslims are fanatics.”

          Um, Jacki, I speak for myself. I’m speaking mainly about Islam anyway, which is something rabbis know little or nothing about, unless they are unfortunate enough to be subjugated by Muslims. I’ll pretend you didn’t mention Reform “rabbis.”

          I would like to agree, though, that far too many rabbis are both not up to speed on a threat to world Jewry (Islam) and are too cowardly first to learn and then to teach the truth about Islam. A bunch of dhimmis, in black hats or out of them.

          You should not follow the words of a sage blindly, however. Not that any of your rabbis are likely to be sages. Islam isn’t really even a religion, but a cult. But even if it were a religion, I’m waiting for anything about it that deserves respect. Please review my comments here and learn.

          skzion on February 12, 2010 at 12:17 pm

          P.S., Jacki. When the Nazis ran Germany, yes, I would assume that every German was a Nazi. Some were gleeful Nazi warriors. Others were just doing a job. Still others may not have wanted to murder all the Jews but surely didn’t make waves about the issue.

          So yes, I assume that every Muslim is suspect. Any Muslim who shows evidence of actually knowing something about Islam is a proto-terrorist or enabler.

Please Americans don’t bad mouth Shahid Khan because he is a Muslim and a successful businessman and is a great American success story. Mr Khan has provided jobs to thousands of people and is a law abiding American citizen. I am sure Mr Khan would be a great owner and I am sure St Louis Rams one day will play in a Super Bowl.
Americans have to realize that all Muslims are not bad as not all Christians are bad. I am sick and tired of Americans bad mouthing other cultures and customs solely because they are different. Let us us applaud successful people no matter where they are from and what religion they practice.

Sam Mason on February 12, 2010 at 11:19 am

    I know some Pakistani-born Muslims who are quite modernist.

    A quick glance at the St. Louis Rams cheerleader squad during the upcoming football season might give us a little hint about Mr. Khan’s fanaticism.

    I wonder what the Wahabbi version of an NFL cheerleader squad would look like. Maybe we’ll find out. Eh?

    There is NO Santa Claus on February 12, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    Sam Mason:

    I am sick and tired of foreigners badmouthing the US only to try to move here and take advantage of American job opportunities and education. I am also tired of foreigners taking advantage of the stability that American military dominance provides while insulting America.

    “Americans have to realize that all Muslims are not bad as not all Christians are bad. I am sick and tired of Americans bad mouthing other cultures and customs solely because they are different.”

    I, for one, badmouth Islam not because it is different but because it is evil, with the natural result that those who practice it do evil things. It is not the Muslim weirdos who do such things, but the “mainstream” Muslims as well. If the average Ahmed in the US were a decent fellow, he’d help make sure that his brotherly Muslims who were preaching hate were shut down. Instead, Ahmed attends mosques led by such types.

    skzion on February 13, 2010 at 2:27 pm

      its hypocritical if not just plain funny how you say ppl move to the US to take advantage of the place, jobs etc….when the truth is that the so called Americans themselves moved there to rob the natives of there land and resources for there own personal greed and betterment,
      I appologise for the above comment if you ‘SKZION’ are in fact a native American…..but chances r that u r not…..
      so before we start cursing others for moving here…lets not forget where u originated from.
      as for insulting other religions…its clear to anybody that that is not a reflection of that religion but more a reflection of ur own insecurities and more importantly…..ur ignorance.

[Sam Mason - I am sick and tired of Americans bad mouthing other cultures and customs solely because they are different.]

I agree. That they are different because they believe it is OK to hijack planes and crash them into skyscrapers is no reason to speak out against them.

We should honor them instead.

I_AM_ME on February 12, 2010 at 1:24 pm

just curious how a man hires an accounting service to prepare his taxes, follows their advice, when made aware that they could have given him bad information, he immediately made restitution with the IRS…and is on the advice of a different tax and legal team appealing the decision of the IRS…

I mean, sheesh… You act like the guy is a deadbeat dad to a half dozen kids and refuses to pay while lighting cigars with hundred dollar bills.

And no person should have to apologize for their religion. The simple fact that you point to his religion and question him as a man as a result isn’t exactly a trend you should be setting.

The reality is that you are upset with Rush getting snubbed, and feel that it is a result of his political views…when in reality it is because the NFL did not want his personality, media accessibility nor intentionally controversial stances on social issues to be a face plate for a mid-market franchise.

And yes, the NFL does reserve the right to refuse membership, the same way your employer reserves the right to terminate you. Which if this is a symbol of the kind of work you do…won’t be too far away.

Please, focus on the facts, and let the people make up their minds, the spin you put on this man is horrible.

brettinIN on February 12, 2010 at 3:01 pm

AHAHAHAHAHA!!! You guys are soooo upset that a successful Muslim is going to be an owner in the NFL and your racist God “Rush Limbaugh” couldn’t be one…Hey, did you for one second think that maybe Rush couldnt be an owner because he HATES BLACK PEOPLE and ummmm oh yeah, the NFL is 67% African American??? Nah, that thought didnt cross your narrow minds…

WAKE UP! Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and it will become the most dominant force across the world. Your idea of Islam is terrorism and violence, yet little do you know that the literal meaning of word “Islam” is “PEACE”…don’t let what you see in the media give you an idea of what Islam is.

    Drew on February 14, 2010 at 8:39 am

    This whole post is pathetic. Paranoid Christians attacking brainwashed oversensitive Muslims. You all need to grow up, there is no man in the clouds. We live in the age of science. We no longer need childish explanations to explain our world. Reason has brought light to our universe.

    Oh, and this nonsense about Islam being the fastest growing religion is true in numbers but when it’s boiled down this is only because of the dogmatic brainwashing involved during childhood. Belief in the supernatural is dying by the day when logic is allowed to flourish. Why do you think religions are so keen to be involved in education? Prime brainwashing country. When discussed and debated all religion in a nonsense. The truth will set you free if you have the balls to open your eyes.

    Evolve people!

    Rick on April 12, 2010 at 6:10 pm

When people quote Islam as the fastest growing religion, can you tell me when the last time Islam subjugated others to convert? Is that something that you feel is still a common trend today? or are you talking about in the past? My understanding of fastest growing religion was more of an instantaneous rate of change, have you ever taken calculus? Do you know what a derivative is? I don’t think people are considering pre-21st century forced conversions when they try to calculate the rate of growth for Islam. So, when you say,

“Islam is the fastest growing religion because it murders, displaces, and subjugates those with other faiths. No, I don’t accept it.”

Do you mean to say that Islam is still killing, displacing, and subjugating others in order to get them to convert to Islam?

Just curious about your thoughts… hope you get a chance to reply!

zubair on February 12, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    More lies from zubair, it seems.

    “When people quote Islam as the fastest growing religion, can you tell me when the last time Islam subjugated others to convert? Is that something that you feel is still a common trend today? or are you talking about in the past? My understanding of fastest growing religion was more of an instantaneous rate of change, have you ever taken calculus? Do you know what a derivative is?”

    Oh please, there is no need to bring up calculus, though I admit that I like it enormously. The last time “Islam subjugated others to convert” is today, as I write. That is what jihad is all about: subjugation, killing, and converting non-Muslims.

    In this context, I will need to ridicule you for continued dishonest (although it would be a drop in the bucket) if you bring up in response a weak hadith spinning “jihad” as “spiritual struggle.”

    zubair, you are yet one more reason why I believe that we need to assume that all Muslims are the enemy.

Ha! Islam is to peace what sex is to virginity.

Oh, and by the way the media is your ally here. They are propagating the misinformation that Islam is peaceful.

One last thing. It is not our idea that “Islam is terrorism and violence”. It is the idea of the terrorists themselves, the history and writings of the religion, and the leading authorities of Islamic law.

I_AM_ME on February 12, 2010 at 4:05 pm

[zubair - I_AM_ME,I am wondering if you have any basis for saying that the “writings of the religion” are in support of terrorism and violence. Thanks.]

You are kidding, right? I could write volumes on this, and in fact others have.

I don’t like the guy for other reasons, but look up Robert Spencer and the books he has written on Islam.

By the way, Medina (The second holiest city in Islam) was not always a Muslim city. Do you know how it got to be a Muslim city?

I_AM_ME on February 12, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    No, actually, I wasn’t kidding. I would love to hear an actual quote about how the Quar’an supports violence and terrorism.

    zubair on February 12, 2010 at 5:40 pm

      zubair says:

      “No, actually, I wasn’t kidding. I would love to hear an actual quote about how the Quar’an supports violence and terrorism.”

      Well, since a majority of the Koran and Hadith consists of attacks on non-Muslims, there are loads of “actual quotes.” The best known is the so-called Verse of the Sword:

      “9:5 When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful.”

      For context, you can read up at:

      http://www.answering-islam.org/Silas/swordverse.htm

      Now, you’ve already established your dishonesty, zubair, though any believing Muslim knows that honesty to the infidel to be discouraged. Please don’t compound your lies with references to (1) abrogated suras or (2) weak ahadith.

      Thanks.

    Hey Abdul, doesn’t it strike you as, uh, hypocritical to quote Torah when your religion wants to murder, subjugate, or convert all Jews by force?

    Anyway, the passage you quote is about relations among Jews. Nor is it even relevant in this situation, even if it addressed relations between Jews and Gentiles. Judaism does not preach turning the other cheek, and it does not allow one to stand by while another Jew is in danger.

Do not look at other websites to find it. Pick up a quran and read that supara, it will be about 30 pages.. just read it and come back to me..

      and No where in the Leviticus does it say that its meant for only Jews. It seems to be a code of conduct of which to live by. We have a quite similar peace in the quran.

I can’t quite figure this ‘lady’ out, unless she is a front person for the KKK. I would think living in the USA as an American Citizen for 40 years and giving of himself of virtually every charity from a home for battered women to the Boys and Girls club, to promoting new ideas through contributions to the U of I and the list goes on. I’ve been there–on a smaller scale–but I’ve been there, having been given bad advice by some people you trust only to find out that the advice gets you in hot water. Would YOU appeal a fine or back taxes if people you trusted gave you advice you sincerely believed to be true? I don’t feel that people have the right to criticize others openly until they know the facts, live the facts and offset the ‘bad’??? with the good.

You are a horrendous writer with little or no expertise about much of anything as your words so clearly display. We are talking about a man who was taken from a war torn country rampant with mafia and thieves to be given a better opportunity by his parents. We are talking about a man who entered the engineering program at the U of I (one of the best and toughest in the country) at the age of 16. Who worked his way through school and graduated in 4 years. Who was fresh and new in his designs and who made something of himself doing what he loved. From not much to a whole lot is the end result.

I think his purchase of the Rams is awesome and is going to be in the best interest of the team and St. Louis. His obvious love for St. Louis and the team is a much better fit than a druggie who is way out on the right and has a totally closed mind about others’ opinions. Rush is ok, we need people like Rush. We need many more people like Mr. Kahn. We need fewer of you.

Freedom of speech is a great thing and I wrote a letter to President Nixion each week, some weeks 3 or 4 begging him to give 18 year olds the right to vote. I used my freedom of speech to try to do something constructive and meaningful All I’ve read of your mind is the negative aspects of people and situations instead of trying to be proactive.

You are more of an anti American than Mr. Kahn and you have the right to go right on writing the crap your mind spills out through the keyboard. But more and more knowledgable people who are pro American and pro making the dream work will see through the crap you pen and leave you to read your own garbage. I know this man you speak of and he is so far from what you protray that it’s almost as if you don’t have any knowledge of him at all.

What a loser you are.

John on February 12, 2010 at 8:33 pm

Shahid does not mean martyr. Shaheed means martyr in Arabic. The name shahid in Urdu (the language of Pakistan) means witness, as in “witness of faith.”

Shahid Khan has never been charged with or convicted of a crime as has your exalted hero Rush. Rush is as phoney as Confederate money and as hypocritical as another of your heroes, darlin Sarah. If the dittoheads are ever successful in gaining control of this country and turning it into a Plutocracy, God help us all. Your attacks against Mr. Khan for engaging in illegal activity and (horrors) being of the Muslim faith are contemptable.

Clearly it way past time to end Muslim immigration to the US, along with Muslim access to American universities and jobs.

This Article all together is so childish

The Rosenblooms sure dont seem too keen on keeping the rams after their mothers passing and are looking to offload the team asap.

The new owner’s name and cultural background shouldnt mean anything long as he has the teams and the fans best interest at heart.

the rush limbaugh thing is mainly due to mr limbaugh’s many extreme verbal attacks on the african american community. now it doesnt take a rocket scientist to conclude that the majority of players playing in the NFL today are african american or black (and a good percentage of coaching staffs and fans). so there may be discontent within the playing and coaching staff had mr limbaughs ownership gone through.

here is a youtube clip of mr limbaughs outburst towards african americans

Im a rams fan and personally am behind Mr Khan’s proposed purchase of the rams long as “HE WILL HELP MOVE THE TEAM FORWARD” and not alienate the supporters.

Average J.

Ps. Unrelated arguments on this board are absolutely stupid guys, like seriously

AverageJoe on February 14, 2010 at 12:41 am

This article is the most racist, ignorant, and hate filled article. The Ms. Schlussel should be ashamed at dragging Khan’s name through the mud. I think the tone of the article would have been completely different if Ms. Schlussel knew that Khan was a longtime contributor to the republican party.

CB: I know he’s a Republican donor and couldn’t care less. There are quite a few Republican donor Muslims who openly support terrorism–Ali Jawad, Nasser Beydoun, etc. And then there’s Republican Congressman Darrell Issa, Hezbollah’s fave Congressman. DS

Why do you hate the USA,Michael?

Drew on February 14, 2010 at 8:35 am

Well Debbie, if Sarah Palin ain’t one of your heroes, then stop the hypocracy and hate mongering that you and her are so willing to indulge in. You might not like her but you, her and Rush are soulmates in promoting your radical, hate filled, Cheneyesque ideology.

Responding to I am me. Don’t blame all Muslims for hijacking planes these hijackers are not Muslims but terrorists. Islam teaches tolerance and respect for other cultures and customs. If you want to educate yourself I am me go and read history. The Muslims who ruled Spain for a long time let other religions flourish during their reign. Muslims ruled India for a long time also and allowed Hindus to flourish. Ottoman Empire was extremely tolerant of Jews and Christians minorities. Offcourse some Muslims have turn to terrorism because the wrongs done to the Muslims by Europeans during colonial era. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and the reason is very simple. Islam’s Holy Book Quran teaches tolerance love of humanity and compassion. Why not read Quran and try to understand Islam instead of bad mouthing Muslims.

    Sam Mason says:

    “Responding to I am me. Don’t blame all Muslims for hijacking planes these hijackers are not Muslims but terrorists. Islam teaches tolerance and respect for other cultures and customs.”

    Completely false, as several comments here have shown. (You can review my discussion of the Verse of the Sword.) You, Mr. Mason, are part of the problem, because rather than acknowledge it, you lie about it.

    “If you want to educate yourself I am me go and read history.”

    For example? Both i_am_me and I are familiar with the history of Islam and its canonical texts.

    “The Muslims who ruled Spain for a long time let other religions flourish during their reign.”

    An absolute lie. The condition of dhimmitude was fully implemented in “Al Andalus”.

    “Muslims ruled India for a long time also and allowed Hindus to flourish.”

    An absolute lie. Somewhere between 500-800 million Hindus were murdered by Muslims.

    “Ottoman Empire was extremely tolerant of Jews and Christians minorities.”

    Lie.

    “Offcourse some Muslims have turn to terrorism because the wrongs done to the Muslims by Europeans during colonial era.”

    Lie. Muslims became terrorists when the could no longer win conventional wars.

    “Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and the reason is very simple. Islam’s Holy Book Quran teaches tolerance love of humanity and compassion.”

    Ridiculous. Islam is growing so fast because it wages jihad and forces conversions, killings, and subjugation. There is nothing in the Koran about “universal” love of humanity or compassion. Allah was a schemer, crafty. Mo was too.

    “Why not read Quran and try to understand Islam instead of bad mouthing Muslims.”

    Why not stop lying? I’ve read the Koran, Hadith, and Sira. I understand Islam. It must be purged from the West.

    skzion on February 14, 2010 at 7:58 pm

One thing i know that this man can take the team to a higher level and will make them winners.
That is what he does , and has done it during last four decades.

tanvir ali on February 15, 2010 at 10:59 am

Mr. Skzion is not very educated or well informed to ridicule Muslims. I ask Mr. Skzion if Muslims are or were so bad how come they ruled Spain, India and parts of Europe for so long. Spain Muslim culture was envy of the world and still today if you ask a Spainiard he will tell you about the glory of Muslim Spain. For your information Mr. Skzion Europe was in dark ages during most of the time when Europeans desperate for knowledge and wealth came begging to Muslim Empires for help. Science and Arts flourish in Muslim countries and they gladly helped the unfortunate Europeans. off course unfortunately Muslims became lazy and corrupt and European nations progressed.
There are 55 Muslim countries in the world who are majority Muslims. European colonialism subjected Muslims as second class citizens in their own countries. Now Muslims are independent and with the help of United States and some European countries are fighting terrorism.
Mr. Skizion please be realistic and objective. You are a citizen of the greatest country in the world. The destiny of United states and Muslim countries is the same. We both believe in one God, and Prophet Jesus Christ. Why not find common ground to fight terrorism, poverty, injustice in the world together. Please Mr. Skzion have a open mind. We share the world together and should get along and work together to nake the world a better place.

Sam Mason on February 15, 2010 at 11:17 am

I understand that Mr. Khan is actually a Christian. And if he paid the IRS $68 million and then appealled the payment amount to figure out what his advisors may have done wrong, how is that a tax cheat? I would also assume that $68 million included interest and penalties, meaning he paid far above the actual tax burden the IRS alleges he owed. And if Mr. Khan happens to be a muslim, who cares? It’s a football team, which I imagine has its share of muslim players. And this is the United States of America- still free the last time I checked.

J. O'Brien on February 15, 2010 at 1:26 pm

Ms. Schlussel, your piece on Shadid Khan’s potential buy-out of 60% stake of St. Louis Rams is blatant racists and misleading. What’s Khan’s first name have to do with buying an NFL team? Does anyone care what his first name mean? Khan is a wealthy American (“AMERICAN” do you get it?) businessman married to an American woman. He being a Muslim and country of origin should stay out of this. You have to stoop low and come up with misleading articles about a certain person’s religion and origin to attract readers. How pathetic is that?

Jon Lewis on February 16, 2010 at 8:18 am

This is this first I’ve heard of you….and I think there’s plenty of evidence to say that you’re quite an ignorant idiot.

illini mike on February 16, 2010 at 9:12 am

Did Shahid go to A Marrassha , Certainly not.
He attented Cathedral School ,Lahore, where most of the teachers were non-muslim.Ha ha ha|||||||||||

tanvir ali on February 16, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    This was not a Madrassha where they teach intolerrance, which writer of this blog , I mean Debbie is propagating.

    tanvir ali on February 16, 2010 at 3:57 pm

Many people it seems do not want to see that two or three people here certainly are provocateurs. These very likely get paid for this work or they are volunteers who has accepted the assignment of spreading malicious disinformation from a central organization whose aims are subversive.

The topic here is related to NFL. Repeated reference to anything else is spreading of the propaganda which is the only reason they are here for. Of course it is not hard to see where DS is coming from.

It is very ironic that these apparently highly smart people can’t discern that more they talk about Hezbollah negatively the more people in America get to know about Hezbollah and end up getting on the Hezbollah side. This is like shooting in their own foot. The lesson is – that the planned and organized hate mongering shouldn’t be considered a smart thing.

Chemstar on February 17, 2010 at 5:16 am

Hey, he is from the same Catholic Missionary School in Lahore, Pakistan. Cathedral High. As Muslims we used to pray to Jesus every Friday as part of our weekly ritual. Give the guy a break. As the new movie from Bollywood appropriately named…is doing well at the box office….”My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist”

khalid on February 18, 2010 at 6:36 am

Hey, your really stretching things here. I’m not a Rams fan, but what you say in this posting, I think its because Rush wasnt allowed to be the owner. All your content is screwed up, and you should acquire full knowledge before trying to convince these people that the half-truth is the full truth.

Muhammad on February 18, 2010 at 8:37 am

I am not a football fan, but now i am a rams fan, i know they found a boss who knows how to WIN.

tanvir ali on February 18, 2010 at 12:10 pm

He owns a mega yacht KISMET too.
Search Google.

tanvir ali on February 19, 2010 at 11:14 am

KISMET means fate or destiny.

tanvir ali on February 19, 2010 at 11:16 am

As a former employee of the Highland Park, Mi. plant where he made his start.
I say he should have spent more time keeping his plants open and less time on the KISMET. He has given Michigan less jobs than producing jobs and has gotten a lot more tax breaks than normal.

Former Employee on March 7, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    I am too a former employee.
    FNG is a business like all others and not a charity.
    Fng is keeping most of the people employed as compared to the industry average.
    And that is good for those who work for this company.

    tanvir ali on March 8, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    By the way he did not start his business in MI.
    He started it in Danvile and Weedersberg , IN.and Urbana, IL.

    tanvir ali on March 8, 2010 at 1:47 pm

      Tanvir! The correct chronology! He worked for Flex-n-gate for the previous owners, started his business in Danville, bought Flex in 1978 and started Veedarsberg in about 1991! And he is not Muslim!! “Former Employee” obviously worked at Chrome Craft that he owned with another family!

      Annonymous on September 16, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    Former Employee??? Who are you and what years did you work for Chrome Craft?

    Annonymous on September 16, 2010 at 11:59 am

Next time please do your research properly before trying to act all smart. Shahid means witness. I didn’t feel the need to read rest of the article because title gives it away how much credible rest of the article is.

fan10 on March 12, 2010 at 9:17 am

The NFL is not a liberal or a conservative organization, it’s a business. Anything that causes it to lose money, they flush. Anything that makes money they embrace.
Thus it’s not about whether they are a good or bad person, liberal or conservative. Rush has a “negativity factor” perceive by alot of people. Khan doesn’t. Note I said perceived and not actual. If Rush kept his mouth shut, he could’ve been an owner, but then he wouldn’t be Rush. If Khan mouth off like Rush, he would be flush.
Get your head out of sand an stop with this “everyone is picking on us” attitude. Man up. It has NOTHING to do with politics. It’s all about money.

Peter L on March 24, 2010 at 11:05 pm

you are so illlllllll-informed and out of mind lol. Shahid is different from Shaheed, which means martyrdem. but hey you look very sexy lol

Inam on April 12, 2010 at 5:44 pm

Wow that article is full of neo-white *hit. Get your head out of your arse and try to look beyond your own culture and border Debbie Schlussel………..then again you are a bimbo so wouldn’t expect much with your IQ or diversity.

AntiRacist on April 13, 2010 at 6:28 am

apparently the arabic word for martyr is pronounced as shaheed, where as his name is pronounced literally as shahid, and means something else. shahid sounded to girly to be an arabic name anyway. i would expect someone like sczion who’s read the koran, hadith, and sira to know this. or experts like deb should have known this. i wonder what else they don’t know.
btw, i’ve read the bible, torah, koran, ramayana, talmud, and vedas. in their native languages.
