Al-Bridezilla: Bringing the Middle East to Detroit Bridal Shop

By Debbie Schlussel

Apparently, these people do not know… how to handle things in the United (States). They thought they were somewhere in Fallujah or in the… Iraq mountains and so on.

–Hekmat Putruss, Detroit-area dress store owner about his fellow Iraqi immigrants who attacked him and his family.

bridezilla

You can take some people out of the Middle East.  But you can’t take the Middle East out of them. And you don’t need me to tell you. Because a Middle-Eastern man who was the victim says so himself, below.

I forced myself to watch the insipid local news, last night, because I knew this simultaneously hilarious and sad video was going to air.  Yes, even at a bridal shop in suburban Detroit, Middle Eastern violence goes on . . . and on . . . and on.  And it makes the typical Bridezilla and her family look like the church choir. I feel sorry for the owner of this store. But even he knows his fellow countrymen–those of them who haven’t left their country behind and refuse to be absorbed in American values and civility–well.

More about what we’ll see more of as we continue to let Middle Eastern immigrants invade our shores in droves and bring their Third World violence with them:

The eye in the sky at First Lady Bridal in Lathrup Village catches it all on tape — a real life “Bridezilla,” but she’s not on the rampage alone. Family members are allegedly called in to attack.

“Apparently, these people do not know… how to handle things in the United (States),” said Hekmat Putruss. “They thought they were somewhere in Fallujah or in the… Iraq mountains and so on.”

Putruss, the shop’s owner, said this all started last Tuesday after he refused to provide alterations for a bad mouthing bride who bought a dress and became a nightmare to work with. He told her to take her business elsewhere.

“She (started) threatening me. ‘You don’t know who I am. (I’ll) call my husband to come and kill you,’ and ‘We’ll teach everybody here a lesson,’” Putruss said.

Right after the threats were allegedly made, they locked down the store and called police, but one of the wives was still inside. When some men arrive, surveillance video shows her opening the door and them barreling in.

Inside the store packed with customers, three men enter and confront the owner. They start pushing each other and throw the owner’s son to the ground and begin to beat him. The video also shows one of the men grabbing the owner’s wife, spitting at her and slapping her across the face.

From another camera angle, the video shows a man grabbing the owner, shoving him 40 feet into the showcase and tackling him to the ground. The owner’s son, now shirtless, is hit and shoved in the same direction. It doesn’t end there. The fists continue to fly, and the men pick up formerly dressed mannequins and then use them as weapons. . . .

Putruss and his family say they suffered several injuries from the attack and the damage from the melee is estimated at around $20,000.

Hey, remember all my writing against remakes? Forget that. I have a great idea for a “new” show: “The Basra Hillbillies.” With apologies to Jed and the Clampett clan for the defamation.

What else does one expect in a hellhole like Detroit and a sleazeball global media-owned TV station like WJBK!

Bob Porrazzo on March 9, 2010 at 1:04 pm

I wonder if the owner will be practicing discrimination from now on in his bridal business.

BernardL on March 9, 2010 at 1:05 pm

“The Basra Hillbillies” Bwaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!! :)

Detroit is actually a beautiful and cultured city with fantastic food, people and nightlife. The muslims are based in Dearborn, a city close to Detroit.

DS_ROCKS! on March 9, 2010 at 1:23 pm

At the end of the video, one of the attacking middle eastern scumbags said that they were attacked. I’m sure no one has to guess the religion of these reprobates. Why would anyone believe this lying POS when they are allowed to lie under their ass-backward cult’s practices?

The joke is on the bride – her wedding dress was made from pig parts ;-)

    Men Acquitted in Lathrup Village Bridal Store Brouhaha
    Updated: Tuesday, 11 Jan 2011, 10:38 PM EST

    By TARYN ASHER
    WJBK | myFOXDetroit.com

    LAHTRUP VILLAGE, Mich. (WJBK) – They were caught in a brawl that made national headlines. However, despite video evidence of their involvement, three of the men charged in the fight have been acquitted. FOX 2 talked to one of those men.

    “It’s been really miserable for me (and) my family. I couldn’t sleep at night until Friday,” said Nameer Kastaw.

    That is the day a jury acquitted Kastaw and his relatives Nashwan Petros and Thamir Mikhail for their role in a bridal brouhaha that broke out in the middle of First Fashion, a bridal store in Lathrup Village.

    Last March, the owner, Hekmat Putruss, told FOX 2 it all started when he refused to alter the dress of a bad mouthing bridezilla after a dispute over payment. He refused to give her back her wedding dress. That is when it got ugly.

    According to the police report, the bride’s family stormed the store and attacked the owner and his family. FOX 2 showed you the video of the brawl, the shoving, punching and even the use of formally dressed mannequins as weapons.

    However, Kastaw and the attorneys for the three suspects who were originally charged in the assault claimed their clients were never the aggressors, and they now have the video to prove it.

    “All I (wanted) to do in there (was) approach the owner, (ask him) what’s the misunderstanding. Let’s fix it. It’s not a big deal,” Kastaw said.

    “You didn’t have the whole picture. There were several videos. We were able to slow them down and show the jury that what the complainants said happened absolutely didn’t happen,” said attorney Mark Bilkovic.

    The owner’s wife claimed she was spit at and slapped. Video obtained by the defense shows just the opposite. She was the one who spit at Kastaw.

    Another angle shows the store’s owner’s sister push Kastaw and the owner’s son punch Kastaw’s wife, who tried to break up the fight. That is when the three suspects finally started to fight back.

    They claim it was the owner’s son who was the most aggressive. Video shows him violently grabbing and throwing mannequins at Kastaw’s wife and others in the store.

    Once members of the jury saw the full video for themselves, they were convinced. Although the three suspects were part of the melee, they were not responsible for starting it.

    “We are not the (aggressors). We got attacked by them. That’s what I want people to know,” said Kastaw.

    If they had to do it all over again?

    “If I (knew) I was going to be treated that way, I would not even go there,” Kastaw said.

    FOX 2 also spoke to the owner’s son. He said they are still very upset that a jury found those men not guilty because they still feel that they are at-fault for the fight.

    They are also upset because they had to pay $20,000 in damages after that fight broke out.

Lying comes so easily for muzzies. Plus, the women were fighting too and should be arrested the same as the savage men they summoned.

goldenmike4393 on March 9, 2010 at 1:46 pm

PS I know a muzzie who owns a tuxedo rental shop. When fellow muzzies try to rent tuxes from him, he refused to deal with them. Pretty smart, they know their own kind…

So, YES, don’t become involved in any commerce with muzzies…

goldenmike4393 on March 9, 2010 at 1:49 pm

If you ever read the writings they adhere to, you’ll see that lying is not only permitted but is actually suggested in their “religion.”

Zookeeper on March 9, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Shop owner should have had a CCW handgun license.

Truth on March 9, 2010 at 2:45 pm

They are not muslim ! They’re chaldeans..ZOOKEEPER we dont have any “writings” you dont now what you’re talking about. They are catholic middle easterns..we read the CATHOLIC BIBLE not the muslim bible….NO. lying is not permitted in our religion. So before you post information I would suggest you back up your facts with some studying.

Those guys were acting like savages and do deserve to go to jail. But they’re actions does not define the whole chaldean culture

n on March 9, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    TO: n on March 9, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    Thank you so much for proving my point. Not only do they lie constantly about everything, when caught on tape lying you and other MUZZIES (NOT CATHOLICS) lie and claim they are Christians or Catholics or Jews for that matter.

    You’ll have your part in the Eternal Lake of Fire.

    goldenmike4393 on March 9, 2010 at 5:07 pm

      Again, these people are NOT MUSLIM.

      n on March 10, 2010 at 1:47 am

      Again, these people are NOT MUSLIM. They are chaldean (catholic)! That doesnt excuse them for what they did though.

      n on March 10, 2010 at 1:48 am

Justice should have been served, the owner should have had a shot gun behind the counter and blew their heads off!

Doug on March 9, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Too funny. I know what Deb means about the pathetic local news here – I quit watching it following my graduation from third grade. While the video is amusing, I guarantee the poor shop owners weren’t having too much fun at the time, and they had to wonder if they weren’t going to be murdered by this gang of coward sociopaths; all over dress alterations. These loads need to learn some respect and conflict resolution skills. It is a damn shame that you need to be armed to the teeth these days to conduct business in a simple dress shop in suburban Detroit. Defensive deadly force would have been well justified in this instance.

Ace on March 9, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    It crossed my mind that the shopkeepers might become murder victims, too.

    I hope people will quit doing business with muzzies.

    goldenmike4393 on March 9, 2010 at 5:09 pm

If you go to the end, you see them try to blame the victims. So typical of scum like this. Too bad the Judge will excuse them. Innocent By Being Muslim

We need to bring the fringes to the center and the center to the fringes.

Fringe Group Mediation on March 9, 2010 at 6:39 pm

I would agree. That shopowner had best arm himself. This is not the end of it as long as any of those characters walk the streets free.

Worry01 on March 9, 2010 at 7:13 pm

The thing that ticks me off is that I am sure that 3 years ago these slime were walking down the street in Basra.

Why did our government let these loser throwbacks into the country ??? I’ll bet they are getting govt aid to boot.

jimmyPx on March 9, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Jimmy,

    These clowns don’t even have US citizenship yet. I know that for a fact. They SHOULD be deported instantly but the judicial system is flawed, on their best day. On their worse day, the judicial system is a complete source of corruption and injustice to the citizens of this country. I hardly think justice will be served. For any God-believers out there, we can at least hope justice will come to them in the after life.

    law enforcement on August 27, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Actually, the best troll is a banned troll. Save your racist rants for Stormfront. It is not welcome here.

Worry01 on March 9, 2010 at 9:50 pm

I’m sorry to burst your bubble and end this orgy of hate, but these people are NOT Muslim. They are Chaldeans. Not that it matters – this type of behavior should be condemned, but the glee with which the readers post their anti-Islmaic diatribes compels me to clear this up.

SA: I specifically did not note that they are Muslims. Am well aware they are Chaldeans. That’s why I wrote, “Middle Eastern,” repeatedly, as you’ll note. DS

Shakib Arslan on March 9, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    Yawn. Have any better taqqiya for us dude?

    Worry01 on March 9, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    You are correct DS – nowhere in your article is it stated they are Muslim. My criticism is not of your article, but rather of all these hate-filled comments. It is obvious many of these people are simply blinded by hate. They did not even take the time to read your article (if they had, they would notice, as you said, that you refer to them as Middle-Eastern, and not Muslim) but simply found a reason to spew hate and reveal their ignorance. And it is sad that one must even have to point out that these people are not Muslim, but rather Chaldean. These actions do not represent the larger Chaldean community, nor would they represent all “Muzzies” had the perpetrators been Muslim. Look how insipid the discourse has become.

    Shakib Arslan on March 10, 2010 at 7:36 am

It seems only the corrupt connected muslims get to take a visa. We are importing organized crime along with homegrown jihad.

DJ on March 9, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Are you aware that using all caps when communicating indicates that you are screaming? Do you wish to go beyond your tantrum, or are we to assume that you got away from your caregiver for a moment?

    Worry01 on March 9, 2010 at 11:55 pm

How the hell does fox news give the scum bags time for rebuttal? Sttuuuuupid! Totally stupid. IMHO, I have to think that no matter WHERE your business is you should have a weapon to protect your business. There are bank visits to deal with as well. Just pathetic.

    Wow. Tommy and zookeeper obviously ENGLISH is not your primary language.

    AS I AND OTHERS HAVE STATED BEFORE, THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT MUSLIM. They are NOT from Islam Or Pakistan or any other place where MUSLIMS are from.

    They are from Baghdad and they are CATHOLICS!! They do NOT read the KORAN, they read the Catholic Bible. They believe in JESUS CHRIST.

    And not all chaldeans live their “daily lives” like this or grow up like this.

    IF THESE PEOPLE WERE WHITE OR AFRICAN AMERICAN, IM POSITIVE YOU WOULDN’T SAY RACIST COMMENTS LIKE GO BACK TO AFRICA OR WHITE TRASH.

    n on March 11, 2010 at 6:34 pm

So they are not Muslims. Sadly, they seem to have lost Christian ways as wwell as far as how they conduct themselves. This story demonstrates to me how clearly Islamist “values” can infest a whole society for the worst. Lack of respect, intolerance, threats & violence, and of course the lying. We all know where they learned this all as a way of daily life.

Zookeeper on March 10, 2010 at 9:52 am

Send these trashes back to the Mideast and don’t let them back into the USA. We don’t need any Middle Eastern/Islamic “values” in the USA, as we’re already dealing with low-grade “values” from black gangstahood, la Razan Latinos, and white trailer trashhood. Egad!

Bobby's Brain on March 10, 2010 at 12:15 pm

As a Muslim i am completely and utterly disgusted with the ignorant comments that are made in this thread. Clearly most of you do not know that the perpetrators were not Muslim but Catholic! Also, I was wondering if you would like to make sweeping comments about American “Values” such as prescription drug addiction which originated here in the US. Of course not because it sounds ludicrous to even think of something so vile to be associated with an entire people. I hope that one day the majority of Americans will stop being hypocrites and educate themselves on the culture of other nations. But then again maybe i was spoiled because i finished high school and went to a university which from the posts i’m reading here puts me in the minority. I hope your family is doing well Maria and that these vile men get what they deserve.

N: They are from Iraq, where plenty of Muslims come from. In fact, it’s a Muslim country, in case you didn’t know. Even their victim, a fellow Iraqi immigrant, says they behaved like they were still in Iraq. These are Middle Eastern values and behavior. DS

n on March 11, 2010 at 6:37 pm

Maria…i do wish you and your family well. I am surprise the women/wives that started this fire are not being held and being prosecuted. They are all together on this.

Racism in any form is inappropriate as it divides human kind. The difference in all these people is that their values, honor, respect for humans is very poor. They are illiterate and have not learned from their fore fathers how to resolve situations peacefully with understanding of others involved. It is a shame that this has happened in our state where right now we need to build communities and help each other. Bridezilla needs to seek mental help and learn how to deal with conflicts. I hope she reads this..because of her she has harmfully affected so many lives. Shame on her not her religion…she will need a her god now more than ever.

Maria again our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May he guide you well.
