Houssein Zorkot: More on Dearbornistan’s Latest Hezbollah Terrorist; Prosecutor: “Jihad Has So Many Meanings”
By Debbie Schlussel
Several of my Dearbornistan friends and spies were at the preliminary exam of Dearbornistan Hezbollah terrorist doctor-wannabe Houssein Zorkot.
Pathetic and predictable, my Deabornistanite Infidels tell me that the prosecutor was adamant that we can’t be sure what the word “jihad” means. That’s a typical Islamist line to cover up what we all know jihad actually means as it is used against America: Holy War involving violence. (Yes, I know that jihad means “struggle.”)
Why is that important? Well, on the day that Zorkot was arrested in camouflage with an AK-47 in Dearbornistan’s Hemlock Park, he had just posted on his site, “The Start of My Personal Jihad (in the U.S.)” with a picture of a man in camouflage pointing a machine gun at the viewer. Clearly, his jihad against the U.S. involved an AK-47 and violence.
Yet, the limp prosecutor–speaking in favor of upholding the $1,000,000 bond for Zorkot told Dearbornistan Dhimmi and Bribe-Accepting Judge William Hultgren:
Your honor, Mr. Zorkot posted information about jihad on his website that day. And your honor, we all know that “jihad” has so many interpretations. We all know that word has so many meanings and we’re still trying to find out just what he meant by that. We’re still investigating.
Geez, with investigators like that, no wonder we’re in trouble. FYI, we’re lucky that Judge Hultgren has been charged (and awaits a formal hearing) by the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission for accepting bribes. Otherwise, Zorkot’s lawyers (which include Islamist lawyer for terrorists Nabih Ayad) would be able to pay Hultgren off and get Zorkot freed. That was standard Hultgren procedure until now. And frankly, Hultgren should have been suspended from the bench until he is tried.
My Dearbornistan Infidel friends also tell me that the prosecutor announced that Zorkot’s mother lives in South Lebanon a/k/a Hezbollah Country and that Wayne State University told the medical student that he’s no longer welcome on campus.
The Dhimmi Dearborn Press and Guide, of course, did not mention the prosecutor’s pandering comments about jihad, but has some of the same and a little more, though not much more.
Of note, police found photos of Zorkot in front of the Hezbollah billboard in Windsor, which I wrote about here. Who took the photos? Probably not him. This tells me that he has a partner in all of this Hezbollah activity. Are the FBI and Dearbornistan Police looking for that partner or trying to determine who took those photos? Don’t bet on it.
And, FYI, how appropriate that Zorkot was arraigned on September 11th. My favorite part of the police report is that he had a copy of the movie, “The Neverending Story” a/k/a “Tales from the Neverending Story.” Hilarious. It’s a kids movie, and watch for Zorkot’s attorneys (who read this site) to seize on that as evidence that he was disturbed, especially since it’s the tale of a kid whose fanciful imagination grows upon the death of his mother (again, Zorkot’s mommy is alive and well in Hezbo country).
Also of note, our favorite “former” terrorist/U.S. citizen, FBI award revokee, and ICE crony, Imad Hamad, predictably stands up for the terrorist. Can you imagine a Christian or Jewish group demanding we not rush to judgment if we found one of their co-religionists training with an AK-47 in an American park after declaring war on America? Wouldn’t happen:
Zorkot was arrested about 8:04 p.m. Sept. 8 after police were contacted by three men who saw him carrying a firearm in the north end of Hemlock Park between Schaefer and Oakman.
Zorkot was allegedly dressed in dark clothing and wearing black face paint when officers approached his 2007 Ford Explorer, which was parked in a space near the tree line in the park’s west lot. The vehicle was already running, police said.
Officers approached the vehicle, which proceeded to pull out of the parking space and head northbound toward the park’s entrance. Police were able to block the vehicle in before it was able to leave the park.
When approached by officers, Zorkot opened the driver’s side door, but remained in the vehicle. He then asked officers why they had stopped him and said, “You guys are always harassing me.”
During the confrontation, officers saw Zorkot lower his right hand toward the center console, which was out of view. According to police reports, officers feared Zorkot was reaching for a weapon and grabbed his left wrist while ordering him to exit the vehicle.
An officer at the scene observed the AK-47 in the vehicle’s back seat, and alerted her fellow officers that he was armed. Zorkot was then forcibly removed from the vehicle through the driver’s side door ‚Äî although he initially refused to let go of the door.
When he refused to release the door, officers struck Zorkot’s arm once with a plastic flashlight; however, he still refused to let go.
Officers used a Taser, which struck Zorkot between his shoulder blades. The electrical jolt caused him to fall to the ground, where he began rolling back and forth while yelling “Ali Ackbed.”
When Zorkot refused to comply with officers’ orders, he was stunned again and taken into custody. As police placed him into the back of a patrol vehicle, he allegedly said: “You think this is over? This is not over.”
Evidence technicians then searched his vehicle and found two pairs of cloth gloves; a military combat belt with a canteen and two knives; boots with socks; a receipt for the AK-47 rifle and ammunition; a gunlock and keys; a list of metropolitan Detroit shooting ranges; numerous photographs of Zorkot standing in front of a billboard depicting “various Muslim extremists;” a briefcase containing a laptop; and a cell phone.
Two cameras, a portable AM/FM radio, a pair of binoculars, four computer CDs, an Army surplus bag, a camouflage face paint kit, a Lebanese flag, a VCR cassette of “The Never Ending Story,” and eight prepaid international phone cards were also found inside the vehicle.
Based on the statements he made at time of his arrest, and the materials found inside his vehicle, a search warrant was issued for Zorkot’s home. Dearborn police have partnered with the FBI in Detroit to examine the items seized during that search.
Zorkot was arraigned Sept. 11 in 19th District Court on two felony charges ‚Äî including one count of carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent and one count felony firearm ‚Äî as well as one count of possession of a loaded firearm, a misdemeanor. If convicted of the charges against him, Zorkot could be sentenced to up to nine years in prison.
Sept. 21, the Dearborn resident waived his right to a preliminary examination within 14 days of his arraignment. He is scheduled to return to court Nov. 9 after undergoing a psychological evaluation that will determine his competency and criminal responsibility in the case.
Calls to Zorkot’s attorney, Gerald J. Gleeson II, were not returned by the Press & Guide’s Friday deadline.
According to police, Zorkot does not have a criminal record and has not been identified as a terrorist. He has also not been linked to any terrorist group – including Hezbollah, which he openly supports on his Web site, www.zorkot.org.
“Expressing sympathy for something is not a crime and it does not make one a terrorist,” said Imad Hamad, regional director for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. [DS: Uh-huh. Hamad is an example that this isn’t true. He was a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist and expressed it quite frequently in this country, while he helped the organization.]
“We are still learning the facts in this case and it is important not to rush to judgment. Clearly, this was an unfortunate incident perpetrated by a disturbed individual ‚Äî but I fear that some may try to use it to further anti-Arab and anti-immigrant sentiments. I pray that is not the case.” [DS: “Disturbed”? Riiight. As disturbed as Mohammed Atta.]
Zorkot is of Lebanese descent, but has resided in Dearborn for several years with his father. His mother resides in Lebanon. Zorkot previously attended medical school at Wayne State University; however, the school has severed its ties with him following his arrest.
“He is no longer welcome on their campus,” said Dearborn Detective Sgt. Ronald Beggs.
The university has declined to comment on the case.
Zorkot remains in custody on a $1 million cash bond. The bond, which Gleeson argued was excessively high given the nature of the charges against his client, was set Sept. 11 by 19th District Judge Mark Somers and upheld Sept. 21 by Judge William Hultgren.
Good luck, America. If this is the limp way we treat terrorists–and it is–we have already lost. It’s just a matter of slowing the complete growth of the cancer.
Too late to stop it.
