Hezbollah U.S.A, Part III: My Date at Dearbornistan’s Hezbollah Social Club

By Debbie Schlussel
DEARBORNISTAN, USA – Sunday was a busy day.
First, I watched Michigan FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel Roberts chase after Hezbollah terrorists on the elliptical machine at a swanky suburban Detroit gym.
Then, I did the work he and his agents should be doing. But aren’t. (Don’t believe claims by Roberts and paunchy FBI sidekick, William Kowalski, that they are “monitoring” Hezbollah.) I headed to the Bint Jebail Cultural Center in the heart of Islamic America–Dearborn, Michigan. More on that club–a hangout for thousands of Hezbollah supporters on our shores–later.

Hezbollah Club on Our Shores (One of Several)

Bint Jebail–also spelled “Bint Jbeil”–located in southern Lebanon and very close to the border, is the key Hezbollah stronghold. Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah makes most of his fiery anti-Semitic, anti-American speeches there . . . to eager ears. It is the site from which much shelling of rockets and missiles, onto Northern Israel and beyond, emanates. Thousands of Detroit area Muslims (the majority of whom are Shi’ite) come from the Bint Jbeil area, and they support Hezbollah.
Hezbollah’s U.S. Citizen Mayor
Bint Jbeil’s Mayor, Haj Ali Bazzi, is a U.S. citizen, with a Michigan Driver’s License and an American passport. Even though he cannot speak English, he spent a short time in Dearborn and–voila!–American citizenship was served up. Bazzi told an ABC News TV crew he’s sorry he ever spent any time in America. But he’s not renouncing his U.S. citizenship or giving up his passport and license. He also said that he “would defend Dearborn against invasion by another state.” Of course, he would–it is Little Bint Jbeil. But would he defend America against a foreign invasion? Not likely, judging from many of his relatives in Dearborn, open supporters of Islamic terrorist groups.
Shi’ite Muslim Nurse Ratched
In October 2004, one of them, Najah Bazzy, announced–at a Michigan CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) event–that she is “embarrassed to be an American,” even though she claims she is a second- or third-generation American. We’re embarrassed she’s American, too.

Shia Muslim Najah Bazzy: “Embarrassed to Be an American”

The Shia Muslim Nurse Ratched, Najah Bazzy served as the head Muslim transcultural nurse at Oakwood Hospital, also in Dearbornistan. During her tenure, the hospital was raided by the FBI for providing tax-paid Medicaid deliveries to pregnant, foreign Muslim women with fraudulent social security numbers. All of those kids are now U.S. citizens, and their American birth certificates can be sold in the Muslim world’s black market. Bazzy is one of the women featured in an exhibit in the tax-funded Arab American National Museum to which she donated an anti-Israel video by a fringe nurses group.
Hezbollah’s American “Social” Club
Then, there is the Bint Jebail Cultural Center, Sunday. Many of the Bazzis were in attendance at the club, whose Chairman is Nazieh Bazzi. They were ostensibly there to mourn members of the Bazzi family who died in Israel’s defensive war against Hezbollah. But this was no memorial service. It was a Nazi-style hate-fest.
The Bint Jebail Cultural Center was founded in 1994. Incredibly, American taxpayers subsidize this “cultural center,” since it has 501(c)(3) tax-deductible status. In 2004, the year of its last tax return on file, the club spent over $85,000 on “cultural and religious seminars and lectures,” most of them extremist. The decor of the club is elaborate, if you like the Saddam Palace/Donald Trump Apartment style of gaud. The extremists who founded the club apparently think paradise looks like Liberace-land.
While it operates mostly as a banquet facility, the Bint Jebail Cultural Center is also used as a frequent meeting place for Hezbollah supporters and a locale for Hezbollah rallies that frequently feature anti-American and anti-Christian hate, not just anti-Semitism. (Despite all that, U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III–now a Bush nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals–is a frequent guest at this Hezbollah club, including last October, when he told its members that the club and the U.S. government had “issues of common interest and concern.”)

Hezbollah’s Fed Stooges: U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy Fetes Hezbollah Club, FBI SAIC Daniel Roberts Chases Hezbollah Terrorists @ The Gym

Sunday’s event was no different than the usual Bint Jebail hate fare, minus the bloated, pandering federal officials. It was a Hezbollah rally filled with anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric, as well as prayers for the Mujahideen and the Martyrs. What I saw and heard should be must viewing for all Americans.
But you didn’t read any of it in the whitewash AP story by a reporter who apparently doesn’t speak or understand Arabic–the language of most of the speeches (and probably not English, either, since he couldn’t even get the name of the club right). Not that Arabic fluency was necessary. It was quite clear that this was a modern day Nazi hate-fest.
While AP reported that there were 1,000 people in attendance, this was the one time when the mainstream media under-reported numbers at an extremist Muslim rally. There were easily 2,500-3,000 Jew-hating, anti-American bodies in the room that has a maximum capacity of 1,000. No fire marshals, though. The Dearborn police were guarding these Hezbollah supporters in a car outside the venue. The fire was reserved for the speeches.
Among the many speakers, several things were in common: multiple statements about the Jews, cheers for the total destruction of and end to Israel, and support for Hezbollah, the Mujahideen, and the Martyrs.
A very religious Islamic event, I sat with the many bitter-looking, hijab-encrusted women in Black (the women were relegated to separate seating in the back). Every imam of every Shi’ite mosque in town was there, white turban et al. That includes Imams Hassan Qazwini of the Islamic Center of America and Mohammed Ali Elahi of the Islamic House of Wisdom–heads of the two largest mosques in North America. (I’ve written extensively about Elahi’s connections to Iran and Hezbollah.) Also there, Imam Husham Al-Hussainy of the Karbalaa Islamic Institute. At a Dearborn rally in memory of Yasser Arafat, he held a poster of his hero, Ayatollah Khomeini. Both Qazwini and Al-Hussainy were hugged by President Bush in media photo ops when he came to town upon Iraq’s “liberation.”
Haj Mohammed Turfe (AP incorrectly called him Mohammed “Torfah”), Founding Chairman of the Bint Jebail Cultural Center, gleefully and repeatedly spoke of how “only a few thousand Jews will survive Armageddon.” This mantra, repeated often throughout the event, got raucous, deafening applause and cheers. Well, for once–I thought–extremist Muslims have respect for Christianity. . . when they can twist it to suit their fascist hopes and dreams.
Dr. Ali Ajami, Lebanese Consul General in Detroit, delivered a fire-and-brimstone anti-Semitic tirade that would make Father Coughlin blush. An open supporter of Hezbollah, sources say he was installed in the position by Hezbollah officials in the Lebanese and Syrian governments. Incredibly, he is constantly feted by Department of Homeland Security officials.
Then, there was Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi. First, he said that Americans and Jews are “diseased,” among other attacks. He sang a prayer for the Martyrs and Mujahideen–to the fervent applause of the attendees. He urged those in attendance not to buy new clothes for the next year, and to instead donate the money to “them, our brothers and sisters.” It was quite clear he was speaking of Hezbollah (giving money to it is a violation of U.S. law). Incredibly, this Islamic David Duke is still a regular columnist for The Detroit News, thanks to editorial page editor Nolan Finley.

Throughout the speeches there were cheers and statements of support from the crowd for Hezbollah and against Jews. Some of the loudest cheers came for the repeated mantra, “Pray for the Speedy Dismantling of the Jewish State.” It was a take on the business card of extremist Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of the Neturei Karta, a surprise speaker at the event. But his card says, “Pray For the Speedy Peaceful Dismantling of the Zionist State.” They were not interested in the “peaceful” part, apparently.
Weiss, a Jewish self-hater, has no following in the mainstream Jewish Community. Ultra-Orthodox rabbis from high and low have denounced and disavowed this extremist “rabbi” who makes a career of attending anti-Israel rallies sponsored by Muslims. But not Imam Husham Al-Hussainy. He told two Muslim women that he and Rabbi Weiss made a great team, last week, in denouncing Israel at various rallies. I watched Rabbi Weiss, whose sole legitimacy is his ultra-Orthodox religiosity, shake the hands of the Muslim women–a total no-no for observant Orthodox Jewish men (who are not allowed to touch women that are not their wives or close relatives).
Below is Rabbi Weiss’ business card, should you wish to tell him what you think of his participation in a modern day Nazi rally. He wore a giant Palestinian flag as did his rabbi sidekick companion.

Also in attendance and cheering for the various expressions of hate was Nasser Beydoun–who that morning went on a local TV show, claiming he is a moderate that has respect for Jewish people and the State of Israel. He is Chairman of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce and an organizer of the U.S. Arab-Economic Conference, last month in Houston (attended by President George H.W. Bush, State Dept. official Karen Hughes (more on Hughes here), etc.). Incredibly, Michigan Republican Chairman Saul Anuzis–so desperate to get the minuscule Muslim vote–was hyping Beydoun as a U.S. Senate candidate. Beydoun’s father, Mohammed, is a U.S. citizen but lived in his elaborate Bint Jbeil, Lebanon mansion, until U.S. taxpayers paid to bring him back here, last week.

Why are these extremists–Nasser Beydoun, Mohammed Ali Elahi, Husham Al-Hussainy, etc., etc. ad absurdum–commanding the respect and attention of U.S. officials? Why are these supporters of Hezbollah terrorism against Americans and Jews getting the light of day?
It’s an enigma that has no reasonable explanation. Pandering to this extremist hate by our government officials–whether for political pragmatism or career enhancement–is unacceptable.
All freedom-loving Americans need to wake up to the “culture” I saw on display at the Bint Jebail Cultural Center.

Debbie: This is the best yet. Keep the heat on.

Frank Laughter on July 26, 2006 at 9:19 am

Debbie,
It’s ironic that I should find Kevin Sites’s sympathetic article about the Chahines of Dearborn, who are “stranded” in southern Lebanon (see http://hotzone.yahoo.com/b/hotzone/blogs7873). Any light that you can throw on this family will be appreciated! Meanwhile, check out my commentary on Sites’s article: comment #110.

northernvirginiastan on July 26, 2006 at 9:29 am

Debbie: Heard you last night on the radio. Very powerful. Its comforting to know that our society still produces someone who is willing to put herself in a less-than-safe position to enlighten the masses.
I’ve had too much time on my hands for the last month and have been researching genetics. I thought you might enjoy this…
I suggest reading an academic book review of a work of Dr. Richard Lynn, University of Ulster, in England, discussing race and intelligence. It basically looks at 620 IQ studies covering the scores of 813,000 individuals and maps the results. An executive summary: Japanese-107; East Asian-106; European-100; Turkey-90; Africans residing in the West-85; Middle Easterners-84; Africans in Africa-71; Bushmen-54. The author attributes the scores of the two lowest groups to poor nutrition. The Professor recently studied the IQs of British Jews (different study) and found them in the range of 110-113.
A quick, good spirited jab at our European UN friends-the highest scoring subgroup of Europeans was from North America, attributed to ‘Selective Migration’. And now a cheap shot because I just can’t help myself: if Kofi had only had Wheaties…

I see Kevin Sites is producing his hate America propaganda again.This is the guy that produced the video of the Marine that shot a Muslim in a mosque that gained so much attention.
Thankfully the marine was exonerated yesterday of all charges.
I watched the video he has on Lebanon and it is more left winged hatred of Israel and America.He is charging Israel with bombing civilian homes. How would he know since he came there after the fact.
Does this useful idiot know the Hezbollah does not wear uniforms and hides their weapons in civilians homes?

ScottyDog on July 26, 2006 at 11:41 am

Debbie,
Once again, you show us all why you’re the best at telling the truth about Islam, Muslim America, the complicit connections between these hate groups, terrorist groups, their sympathisers, and supporters. I am so F-in’ ANGRY how our own Federal Officials like Moskowitz, Roberts, Murphy, Ice-Princess Myers, and countless other ELECTED OFFICIALS (From Congressmen, Senators, and even our own Administration Officials) that DO NOTHING to eliminate these anti-American, anti-Jew hate enablers that proliferate terror in the name of “Allah”. Every time I see Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, I get absolutely incensed! You and Pam (Atlas) are the only ones that expose this sell-out, traitor putz. It’s sickening!
It is such a damn shame that there are so few people (like the regulars that read your site) that actually care about this. Too many Americans are so apathetically ambiolant and go on liing day-to-day like good little dhimmis.

Yiddish Steel on July 26, 2006 at 11:58 am

Great review of our little home-grown Islamic Reich. You’re doing the work the Drive By Media ought to be doing – and isn’t. We’ve got a terrorist subculture right in the heart of America and most people have no idea it even exists!
Now why do local federal officials get away with appearing in front of the local Hezbollah fan club? Part of it is the mindless politically correct tribute to multiculturalism, part of it is a desire to ingratiate oneself with the Religion Of Peace TM and demonstrate the War On Terror is not directed at Islam and part of it is the wool being pulled over the eyes of those present, either due to the Islamic practice of taqiyyah or self-deception.
I hazard a good guess those local feds don’t speak Arabic and have no idea just how extreme their “friends” really are. You might say ignorance kills. After 9/11, many of those who ought to be protecting us are sadly divorced from reality. And, no its not just the Jews’ problem. Hezbollah’s visceral hate for America is a matter of record and Iran made it a virtual religion long before Al Qaeda came on the scene.
Returning to the Islamic Reich metaphor, not even the NK Jewish misfits would attend a neo-Nazi rally much less than shake the hand of a woman there. When it comes to Muslim Nazis who preach the destruction of Israel and beginning their rallies with goosestepping parades and the Hitler salute, these people can’t see the enemy for who they really are. Not every one can recognize evil until its finally defeated. That’s human nature.
Dearbornistan is like a ticking bomb set to go off right here in this country if the Hezbollah sleeper cells here are not interdicted, deported, sent to prison and have their funds sequestered. And if a major terrorist attack should happen in this country due to our support for Israel, our public officials won’t be able to claim they didn’t see it coming.
Debbie Schlussel put it up in the record for all to see and hear. Let’s hope people finally get serious about dealing with this problem.

NormanF on July 26, 2006 at 1:00 pm

You would think that people would start to see Islam for what it really is.
NOT a legitimate religion–they are hiding behind the disguise.
Islam is a political doctrine and cult–to be compared to Naziism and Communism.
If they ever (wishful thinking) call Islam what it really is, would we then have a chance to ban it?

americaningermany on July 26, 2006 at 1:22 pm

    All this ignorance is just breeding more hate. It’s one thing to do investigative reporting but quite another to make child like remarks… i.e. “All we need to know about Islam we learned on September 11, 2001″. Give me a break. Let’s be serious too much of anything is never a good thing. If you look hard enough you will find extreme Muslims and extreme Jews. In no way am I downplaying 9/11 but open your eyes and stop being blinded by your own ignorance, it makes you sound uneducated. Obviously there are good Muslim people out there, after all it is the second largest religion in the entire world. By the way ‘americaningermany’, Islam is a legitimate religion and anyone who passed sixth grade would know that.

    Melissa on September 1, 2010 at 12:13 am

Keep up the good investigative reporting. I’d like to think that our intelligence agencies are monitoring these homegrown fanatics in Detroit.
In the meantime I’d like to comment that I wish our Hollywood liberal American Jews would support the destruction of Hezbolla with as much zeal as they seem to support the destruction of traditional American values.
Where are Streisand, the ACLU and other Liberal Jews? Clearly Israel is defending itself against an illegal terrorist army in Southern Lebanon. Are they so blinded with hatred for Bush that they won’t support a country that they share a heritage with? Why don’t they send some of their dues for PAW, ACLU, NARAL and Move On and send it to the Israeli refugees? If I was Jewish I might be tempted to go to Israel and join the IDF.

Samoyed on July 26, 2006 at 2:53 pm

Seeing things for what they are and calling them seem to be something that too many americans either won’t do, because they are intellectually lazy, or because they don’t want to – they are cowards. If one sees a thing for what it is and acknowledges it then they also recognize the need and responsibility to do something about the situation. It is much easier for many to either hide their heads in the sand and let someone else do their thinking for them or just be the dumb sheep that they are and follow the leader. Sad to say too many americans have lost the understanding that to be an American means to take the responsibility of calling a ‘spade a spade’ and act accordingly. Too much of our society would rather enjoy the comforts of today and avoid the hard reality than to face the situation today and be able to relax a little tomorrow and enjoy the ‘fruits of our labors’. Many of my relatives and now my sons are in the military, not because they are dumb but because they were raised with the attitude that one owes a debt to the country that gave them so much and that the training and experience makes them better understanding and educated Americans. After military they will be in the college scene- like both of their parents before them. By the way, both of my sons in the military both speak multiple languages throughly – do those who constantly put down our military even speak their own language properly – usually not! My father was born in Holland and came here when he was just five years old but when I heard him speaking with his brothers and sisters in Dutch and wanted to leard the language I was told “This is your country and English is your language – learn them first and then learn to remember you heritage from Holland’. I was raised to be American not Dutch-American and yes there is a major diference in both attitude, action and manner.
While many calling themselves American and enjoying the freedoms here forget the blood paid for that opportunity they tend to lose sight of the fact that they bloody their own hands with the blood of other modern day countrymen to preserve that right in their anti-american speech and actions. The old attitude of ‘America- love it or leave it” suits me just fine and for those who want to critize constantly without an informed intellectual foundation – ‘get a life, get some learning and wake up’ or just do the other thing that they are good at slink away- just do it in the direction of out of this country because you don’t deserve to live here.

Grundy on July 26, 2006 at 4:39 pm

Yes, GREAT REPORTING Deb!
I STILL donít think people, America, the world etc. are getting it.
While it is happening in greater concentrations in and around DearbornÖwhat you need to remember is, that which Debbie observed at the local DISEASED gathering of Muslims is repeatedly HAPPENING all over the USA, all over Canada, all over Europe, INDEED all over the worldÖWHEREVER Muslims congregate!
Folks they only lack the means!
IF a nuclear bomb could be put in a suitcase, if it could be purchased for a $1000, these REJECTS of HUMANITY and FOLLOWERS of SATAN (all of Islam) would be detonating thousands of these bombs all over YOUR COUNTRY, whatever country you reside in.
India
England
Denmark
Israel
France
Germany
USA
Canada
The Philippines
Brazil
Russia
ETC.
WHY?
Youíre all ìinfidelsîÖand SOMEHOW warrant death.
So STOP being NAœVEÖespecially you Liberals!
Yes, STOP being NAœVEÖand stop hiding behind mommyís skirt!
ISLAM is challenging your GOD-GIVEN RIGHT toÖeven exist!
(ALL of) ISLAM is the SWORN ENEMY of MANKIND and therefore has forfeited ITS right to exist.
DESTROY ISLAMÖERADICATE ISLAM = World Peace.
You canít fix itÖas a religionÖyou must root it outÖban itÖOUTLAW ITÖimprison its followers as the ENEMY IN YOUR MIDST!!
There is no other way FAINT HEARTS!
Target the Imams ESPECIALLY for prison.
MUSLIMS, presently, only lack the means, folks.
OTHERWISE these kooks would be detonating A-BOMBS off in Chicago, Baton Rouge, LA, Seattle, Tulsa, Boston, Denver, Atlanta, Houston, Mobile, Miami, etc.
You canít reason with a RABID DOGÖso donít try!!
Donít ask those famous for their TREACHERY (especially Arab Muslims) for assurances of peace!
Look to 911Ödid ALL THOSE innocent AMERICANS die in vain?
BECAUSE YOU have forgotten so quickly!
Have you learned nothing?
EVEN NOWÖas they (Muslim HATE and MURDER originating from Syria, IranÖonly being hosted in Lebanon) ATTACK ISRAEL?
MUSLIMS, presently, only lack the means folks!
ISLAM is a CULTÖits followers donít have FREE WILL and ARE BRAINWASHED from an early age, and live to HATE and MURDERÖas only true Sons of the Evil One (Satan) can~
And you IMAGINE making peace with these PERPETUAL LOSERS!
And, are YOU a fool?

HERE’S something unusual and timely considering the war, ISRAEL presently finds itself in: http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/europe/07/25/ireland.psalms.ap/index.html

The Canadien on July 26, 2006 at 7:14 pm

Keep it up, Deb.
All we need to know about Islam we learned on September 11, 2001. (Pardon the cliche.)
I think that we should eradicate this enemy from our borders. With them, we need to remove these anti-Semitic officials from power–even if, no, especially if, they are Republicans.
If that means bloodshed, it means bloodshed. We Patriotic Americans are tired of hearing and seeing these liars and terrorists on our soil. If they are ever caught trying to sabotage our facilities, spy on our infrastructure, or any way aid their Muslim terrorist brothers, then they should be shot on sight. No ifs, ands, or buts.
They are the enemy.

Why can’t Rabbi Weiss be stripped of his “Rabbi” title? Can he not be excommunicated from his religion and the position he carries. He’s a shame to his community!
By the way, he has a number of Arab fans who cheer at him when he looks at them, and refer to him as “that stupid Jewish asshole” when he turns away. Yeah, he’s too stupid to notice that. Also, he never fails to attend any Arab cultural gathering and show his support for Palestine and hatred for Israel. I met him a couple of times and was surprised at his misplaced priorities and rotten perceptions. He better dress up like an Imam, not a Rabbi. This traitor deserves the gutter. To hell with him!

I wasn’t going to comment on this thread but since I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you I will. First, I’m glad that you did it and got away with it. We need to know what is really going on and it’s a d@amn shame that YOU have to do what our government should be doing! What we have here in the U.S. is a microcosm of what has been allowed to happen in Europe. They move in, establish themselves as an oppressed minority, set up organizations like CAIR, and seek out the Stephen Murphy types to aid them in their goals. And the same mindset that allowed it to happen in Europe is also allowing it to happen here (our Mexican illegal alien issue IS related — I’ll connect the dots later).
Having said that, you better be careful about going in those places! Are you trying to worry your family half to death?! Death wish girl you! There, I said it. And don’t get mad at me either! If something happens to you, who else is going to write about what you do? Not that I care… well, OK, I do a little. OK, more than a little. But just be careful!

Eric on July 30, 2006 at 3:40 pm

Hello,
I would like to share a few thing about your articles and website. First off, the “honor beatings” you so love to mention are against Islamic law. Every time a man lays his hand on a woman or child, not only does he sin but also he must donate to an orphan. Also, Islam urges women to be educated. Religiously, if you do not have money troubles and no children, you most continue your education. Terrorism or terrorist acts are also against Islamic law. The “Islamic Extremists” (the media labeled) such as Al Qaeda and Talaban are nowhere near Islam. You people misconstrue the Quran. Taking what you think is negative and exaggerating it is not journalism it’s Zionism. Only a true journalist would get their facts straight! But then again, you’re not a true journalist. You’re a Zionist! I must applaud you though; I must say you’re not as unintelligent as people make you out to be. You’re trying to pump us up to bring your website ratings higher, get more and more people to register and leave comments (just like I am) by your negativity and ignorance. This comment is not for you, it’s for those who are stalking this website. DO NOT GIVE HER THE SATISFACTION THAT WE ARE WASTING AWAY ON THIS SITE. YOU CAN CURSE AND THREATEN HER ALL YOU WANT, IT DOESN’T MATTER!! WHAT MATTERS IS YOU HAVE BEEN ON THE SITE AND THAT GIVES HER MORE RATINGS, MORE PEOPLE THAT HAVE REGISTERED. PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO STOP LOOKING UP DEBBIE. IT’S JUST NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!

Lisa on October 3, 2006 at 11:10 am

People here aren’t stupid, so go back to your jihadist mosque, Lisa.
Only there you will find ignorant islamofascist idiots who are going to listen to your nonsense about “evil zionists”.
Do you even know what Zionism really is ?
No, you don’t ! So here’s a good lesson for you.
And your teacher for today is Martin Luther King !
quotes from ìLetter to an Anti-Zionist Friend,î Saturday Review XLVII (Aug. 1967), p. 76.
Reprinted in M.L. King Jr., ìThis I Believe: Selections from the Writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.î (NY: 1971), pp. 234-235.
“. . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely ‘anti-Zionist.’ And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God’s green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews–this is God’s own truth.
Anti-Semitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently anti-Semitic, and ever will be so.
Why ? Because Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land.
The Jewish people, the Scriptures tell us, once enjoyed a flourishing Commonwealth in the Holy Land. From this they were expelled by the Roman tyrant, the same Romans who cruelly murdered Our Lord. Driven from their homeland, their nation in ashes, forced to wander the globe, the Jewish people time and again suffered the lash of whichever tyrant happened to rule over them.
The Negro people, my friend, know what it is to suffer the torment of tyranny under rulers not of our choosing. Our brothers in Africa have begged, pleaded, requested–DEMANDED the recognition and realization of our inborn right to live in peace under our own sovereignty in our own country.
How easy it should be, for anyone who holds dear this inalienable right of all mankind, to understand and support the right of the Jewish People to live in their ancient Land of Israel. All men of good will exult in the fulfillment of God’s promise, that his People should return in joy to rebuild their plundered land.
This is Zionism, nothing more, nothing less.
If you believe the Jewish people deserve to have an independent state, then you are a Zionist. Itís that easy.
Zionism is not a dirty word. It is a credo which reinforces the legitimate right of the Jewish people to self-determination.”
You donít have to be a Jew to be a Zionist, the same way you donít have to be a woman to be a feminist, or a black person to believe in equal rights for blacks.
Being a Zionist does not mean that you believe Israel is perfect or makes no mistakes. You can support Palestinian national aspiration, and still be a Zionist. As a Zionist, you can disagree with Israelís policies, you can criticize her government. You can speak out against policies, and demonstrate against them.
But you cannot take away her right to exist as a state for the Jewish people.
“And what is anti-Zionist? It is the denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the people of Africa and freely accord all other nations of the Globe. It is discrimination against Jews, my friend, because they are Jews. In short, it is anti-Semitism.
The anti-Semite rejoices at any opportunity to vent his malice. The times have made it unpopular, in the West, to proclaim openly a hatred of the Jews. This being the case, the anti-Semite must constantly seek new forms and forums for his poison. How he must revel in the new masquerade! He does not hate the Jews, he is just ‘anti-Zionist’!”
The Jewish people is one of the most ancient peoples in the history of humanity still surviving today.
For over 3000 years, since Biblical times, the Jewish people have kept all the elements which define them as a people: culture, tradition, religion, language, and connection to their land.
On 1948, the Jewish people became, once again, a sovereign nation in their home, the land that they were promised thousands of years ago, and in which they had a continuous presence since then.
The French people have an independent state.
The Japanese people have an independent state.
The Arab people have 22 independent states.
The Jewish people, who had sovereignty before any of these people, certainly deserve to have an independent state of their own. This is Zionism!

Bint Jbeil was a beautiful village in the mountains of southern lebanon, people from bint jbeil exist in the U.S because Israel expelled almost everybody.
Patriotic Americans, just imagine that you were born in Bint Jbeil, or Jerusalem from a palesteiniane family would you think its fair to be kicked out by other nations, only because we’re weak you can be deleted from existence??
do you open your heart to hear what happened to the palestinian or what’s happening to the Iraquis or the Lebanese.
that’s ok because this life is only a test, Jesus will reward us in heaven he promised.
we who followed our lord Jesus and believed in him will not be afraid, you who followed those who murdered him,(i mean the Jews) let America reward you.

To Billy in Sydney or abu Jihad or whatever your real name is.Q’Saoumach.Bint Jebiel was a center of Hezballah terror. It was attacked after Hizballah shelled 8 peaceful Jewish villages (most of them populated by Jewish refugees from Arab and Moslem countries)on the morning of July 12, 2007. In this attack 8 people were badly wounded. This attack was followed by the murder of 8 Israeli soldiers and the kidnapping of two more by Hezballah. This occured after numerous other shlolling and rocket attacks on Israel.

To Billy in Sydney or Dearbornistan or wherever.Zubie; since your so concerned about beautiful peaceful Lebanese villages why not tell us about the fate of Damour, which was a peaceful Christian Lebanese seacoast village along the Tyre-Bierut highway, when it was attacked by the PLO in 1967. The village priest begged Arafat to leave them alone. Nevertheless it was attacked. The only defenders were young teen-aged boys. Their bodies were desecrated and their eyes gouged out. Several were murdered by dragging their bodies behind moving vehicles. The villagers were slaughtered or fled. Damour was then turned into a training site for the various Palestinian terrorist groups such PFLP(Imad Hamad’s group), PLO etc. The village church was turned into a stable. The refugees from Damour were not flown to the USA, courtesy of the US taxpayer, as was the case with Bint Jbiel. They were not given 89 million dollars to rebuild their town by the US government as is happening in southern Lebanon.

Hey Billy, sham Christian; If your concened about other Christians you wouldn’t be so concerned about Bint GBiel. It has been a center for attacks on neighboring Christan villages for the past 100 years. If your interested please read the biography of the Christan leader, Etienne Sakr “The Conscience of Lebanon” who came from southern Lebanon, which tells about these attacks.

Salam alaykoum to all
I am a proud muslim American Lebanese and I live in Dearborn, and I think all your telling is B.S We love lebanon and We love United States of America and WE came from different countries to this Great country that the white man stole and occupied from the Indians at one point. So your an immigrant as well as me and everybody else ,German Irish and Itlaian blood that’s what every white person says atleast. And Yes I dont agree with You about Hizbollah that they are a terriost group they defended their country from invaders -Israel- like every responsible citizen of any country should do if his country came under attack. FYI Lebanon didn’t occupy israel in 1982 It was the other way around and the Great peopole of Lebanon defended their country and kicked the invaders out.And if USA was under any attack by anybody i will defend it as I am doing Here in Afghansitan . Do YOU STILL HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH US LEBANESE AMERICAN SHIITES.

You all are the saddest excuses for human beings to ever walk on the face of the earth! You think you know Islam?? Get your damn facts straight before you go talking about a religion you know nothing about! Go talk your sh*t where it matters…..nowhere! Debbie, quit posting fake sh*t, because NONE of it is true. Just because a person can be from Bint Jbail doesn’t mean they automatically support Hezbollah. It’s like saying every American is for the war in Iraq. I suggest you all learn the true meaning on Islam, and not what the AMERICAN media tells you. If you all knew better you’d know America only releases what it wants, and what it wants is to give you the worst image and idea of the Arab nation. I’ll refrain from using the words I’d be mor ethan happy to call you call, but I won’t stoop down to anyone’s level. Get your facts straight before you go assuming whatever you want.
Have a wonderful day.

Can you stop saying dearbornistan? It’s DEARBORN. And for your information, Muslims are not terrorists and they do not hate all jews. Just the other day, the muslim organization was working with the Jewish community to help out in a free clinic. So can you stop and give muslims their right to freedom of religion. This religion comes from peace and if you researched it, it holds similar beliefs with Judaism and Christianity. The God of Jews and the God of Islam are the same. And also about the independent state, yes there are a lot of muslim states but remember that they used to be one and that Palestine or now Israel is a very important state to the MUSLIMS and JEWS. God gave that land to the descendants of Prophet Abraham, Jews and Christians descended from Issac and Muslims descended from Ishmael. Please stop criticizing Islam, it is a beautiful religion.
