Remember the 1970’s hit “American Woman” by The Guess Who?
For many Muslim men seeking instant asylum in America, they’re not exactly singing, “American woman, stay away from me.”
In fact, it’s the exact opposite. They’re online preying on your daughters, sisters, and nieces.
The story of Katherine Lester, the Michigan teen who fled to the Middle East to convert to Islam and marry a Palestinian Muslim she met online at MySpace, is chilling. The man, Abdullah Jimzawi, who called himself “Abdullah Psycho,” said that several Muslim men from his town–a terrorist stronghold near Jericho in the West Bank of Israel–had met and married American women through this method.
And emigrated to the United States to get their Green Cards.
In Lester’s case, after FBI agents convinced her to return to the U.S., she went online and posted to Jimzawi’s MySpace page, calling him her husband and stating her intentions to return. Her parents were forced to go to court, this week, to get a Michigan judge to declare her a “runaway” and ward of the court.
But Lester isn’t the only one. In fact, there are websites for the specific purpose of Muslim men from terror-host nations meeting and marrying American women. And moving here for the holy Green Card grail.
One site, Visa Journey, has a whole list of American women describing the process of bringing their new “husbands” back to the U.S. and getting their I-130 forms (for marriage to a foreigner) adjusted. For many, they’ve met the man once on a trip and the marriage is set into motion.
Not surprisingly, many of these women are on the more zaftig side–difficult to attract American men’s attention, but desirable in the Arab Mid-East. These vulnerable women, desperate for attention, are extremely gullible and easily agreeable to a quickie marriage. They are just some of those born to P.T. Barnum’s predicted birthrate of suckers.
Take Kelly, who identifies herself on Visa Journey, as “Dollface41601.” She married a Jordanian Palestinian named Sofyan. Here’s the history she writes about her marriage:
In Jordan with my love, filing DCF
September 28th – i-130 interview success APPROVED
October 2nd – Medical in Amman
January 31st – Embassy called to schedule interview
March 21st – 8am Final interview
March 25th 2006 – 11:30am….getting on a plane and going home after a long long wait!!!!!!!!!!
April 6th – Welcome to America letter receieved
April 10 – Green Card arrives in Mail!
April 13th – Social Security Card arrives and Sofyan starts his new job !!!!
April 17th – Sofyan tested for his drivers permit and passed…watch out all, hes on the road now!
Is this the description of a loving marriage–or a background sheet on a suspect? Hard to tell. Now that the man has his Green Card and Social Security number–and is soon to get his driver’s license–it’s also hard to tell how much longer the marriage to Dollface41601 will last.
Give it a couple of years, just to make things look kosher (or is that halal?).
One woman calls herself “CRAZY in Love.” Giver her credit for admitting the “CRAZY” part. She met Moroccan Hicham online in July 2004, and just a few months later they were engaged, and she was applying to bring him to the States:
We first met when Hicham instant messaged me one night while I was online. He said he saw my pic and thought I looked calm and smart. That was July 13, 2004:
So…I bought my plane ticket for winter break then. I flew to Morocco and landed on Christmas day (my 30th birthday). What a gift! I loved his country and fell even deeper in love with him. And… we officially became engaged and decided to pursue the K-1 visa.
06/29/05 – Visa in hand! FINALLY!
07/07/05 – Hicham comes home to the USA!
[DS: "Home"? Not exactly.]
07/18/05 – Hicham applies for SSN.
07/22/05 – Our religious [DS: Islamic] wedding ceremony
07/25/05 – Our civil wedding ceremony
07/31/05 – Hicham’s SSN is in the mailbox
08/19/05 – Hicham goes for state ID
09/12/05 – Hicham gets state ID in mail
Then, there is Jamie, a Detroit area woman who is trying to bring her Algerian online “suitor,” Yacine, back to the States. Her story doesn’t include much time between when she first met him and applied to bring him to the U.S.:
8.10.05 – Spoke with Yacine for the first time
12.25.05 – Met Yacine for 1st time in Tunis then Algiers
2.9.06 – Mailed I-129F to NSC
2.25.06 – Visiting Yacine in Tunis…
3.2.06 – RFE notice – check
3.10.06 – Notice date for NOA1

5.22.06 – Going to Algeria to be with Yacine, I’ll be back 7.18.06 !
6.16.06 – Transferred to CSC
6.17.06 – Touched
And Jean of Louisville, who married and is trying to bring Mohammed here from Egypt. Her marriage seems to consist of Koranic verses and a golden ticket for Mohammed to Willy Wonka’s Immigration Factory:

And still more waiting…
There are thousands of these women. The problem is not just that these American daughters are so desperate for a man’s attention that they are willing to jeopardize our nation’s security for it. It’s that federal authorities aren’t doing much to prosecute Islamic sham marriages. The Washington Times reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has decided not to investigate most of them. Stopping marriage fraud is not on ICE’s agenda.
That’s why a man like Faris Alami walks free and has U.S. Senator Carl Levin pressuring the government to grant him citizenship. Alami presents himself as a loving American immigrant doting on his young baby and wife. His THIRD wife. His second wife says the Muslim Palestinian engaged in Social Security fraud and demanded she stay married to him in order to get his green card.
Most disturbing is that Americans aren’t very bothered by the IslamoCyberStalking that leads to sham marriages and heightens the illegal alien invasion of our country.
Katherine Lester, the teen girl who fled to the Mid-East to marry her Islamic suitor and bring him to the U.S., is cheered on by hundreds of American teens and adults who posted comments on her suitor’s MySpace page. They are almost universally in defense of Abdullah Psycho’s manipulation of the girl and his secret ruse to bring the minor to the Mid-East for Islamic conversion, marriage, and, ultimately, a green card.
One commenter writes to Abdullah Psycho:
A lot of the news media, and especially some of the other bloggers (Debbie Schlussel, etc.) have been really hard on you over the past week, and I don’t think it’s justified.
If you were from Canada or Europe or somewhere like that, this would not have been such a big deal.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a big deal there. That’s why there are now 17 Canadian Muslims charged with planning terror attacks on the country.
Another, a woman, calls Lester and Abdullah Psycho, “Romeo and Juliet.”
More like Jabba the Hutt and Princess Leia with a leash around her neck. But in this case it’s not a Hollywood movie that’s at issue.
It’s America’s national security.
