There is so much violence associated with gas stations owned by Muslims and Arabs that a column entitled “Gas Station Terrorism” might soon be in order.
We’ve already documented how two Arab men ripped off customers in Macomb County, Michigan (near Detroit) (here and here). But there are many incidents of violence associated with gas stations and their owners that we’ve written about over the years.
The latest: two articles from January (recent oldies but goodies) from The Toledo Blade, about legal matters of some Muslim men that are ongoing. They concern torture and beating.
Both articles (here and here) are about Mohamed Ajami, a would-be Toledo gas station owner and his wife, Hanadi.
Mrs. Ajami’s brother, Hassan Harajli, who owns 80 gas stations in Michigan and Ohio, lives in Dearborn, Michigan (the heart of Islamic America). But his reach apparently stretches worldwide. The Ajamis say the brother/brother-in-law, Harajli, paid Lebanese authorities $50,000.00 to detain and torture Mr. Ajami in Lebanon (during a visit) and later paid Arab thugs in Dearborn to beat him.
The Republic of Lebanon is a defendant in a suit filed over the torture.
As you can see, while the violence is there, it is here, too. That’s how they settle debts and disputes in the Middle East. Now, it is becoming the way business is done among Arab Muslim Mid-East immigrants here.
Is this good for America? (A rhetorical question.)
