Who is Marty Knollenberg?: Hezbollah & Syria Back Candidate for Michigan’s Legislature

By Debbie Schlussel
Why are agents of Hezbollah and Syria and supporters of their occupation of Lebanon giving big dollars to a candidate for the Michigan Legislature?
That’s the question all voters in Michigan’s 41st House District, in suburban Detroit, should be asking of Republican primary contender Marty Knollenberg.
For a tiny state legislature seat, Knollenberg–the son of Republican U.S. Congressman Joe Knollenberg–has received some interesting contributions from outside the State of Michigan:

Marty Knollenberg Wants to be Hezbollah’s Rep. in the Michigan House

* Nijad & Zeina Fares–Nijad Fares is the son of Hezbollah-backed, Syrian installed former Deputy Prime Minister of Lebanon, Issam Fares, deposed not long ago. At the time of his and his wife’s contributions to Knollenberg, Issam Fares was still in power as Deputy Prime Minister. The Fares Family are strong supporters of Hezbollah and Syria and are believed to be conduits of Hezbollah campaign contributions in America, since they are naturalized U.S. citizens and legally able to contribute to American political campaigns.
Nijad Fares also gave thousands to Marty Knollenberg’s father, Congressman Joe, after he pushed through Congress about $86 million in USAID funds to Hezbollah-controlled Southern Lebanon at the request of pro-Hezbollah/pro-HAMAS Jim Zogby of the Arab American Institute in 2000. Knollenberg’s then-Chief of Staff, Paul Welday, aided in this allocation. The money was never traced. Who knows how many missiles and rockets that paid for?
* Abdallah Bouhabib–Bouhabib was the Lebanese Ambassador to the United States at the time that the U.S. Marine barracks were bombed by Hezbollah and over 241 U.S. Marines were murdered. He complained that President Reagan’s only concern in Lebanon was the Marines. Since then, Bouhabib settled in the U.S., where he became an official in the World Bank facilitating meetings with and billions of dollars for P.L.O. leader Yasser Arafat.
American Lebanese activists in the “March 14th Coalition” (a group of Christians, Sunnis, Druze and others who are working to free Lebanon entirely of Syria and Hezbollah) say that Bouhabib worked against them and supported Syria’s occupation of their country.

Bouhabib and Mr. and Mrs. Fares gave Marty Knollenberg $500 a piece. That might seem small to you, but it’s the maximum allowed under Michigan law per election cycle.
No state in the Union should have elected officials who take money from agents of Hezbollah and Syria. And Michigan is no exception.
What will Marty Knollenberg do for Hezbollah and Syria in the Michigan Legislature? We hope voters in his prospective district (containing Detroit suburbs of Troy and Clawson) don’t give us a chance to find out.
For those who are opposed to Hezbollah and Syria getting a foothold in the Michigan House of Representatives, we urge you to vote for his opponent in the Republican primary, Mike Bosnic–a true conservative who will represent the people in his Michigan district, NOT the terrorists in Hezbollah and Syria.
For those elsewhere in the U.S., please help defeat Hezbollah’s and Syria’s candidate for the Michigan House by donating to Bosnic:
Committee to Elect Mike Bosnic
370 Roth Blvd.
Clawson, Michigan 48017
Both Bosnic and Knollenberg are running as Republicans in the heated August 8th primary for this seat. Whoever wins that will be the likely State Representative from this very Republican district.
NOT PAID FOR BY ANY CANDIDATE OR CANDIDATE COMMITTEE.

Why is Knollenberg accepting money from Muslim terrorists?
That’s an easy one. Most of today’s politicians are morally bankrupt, lying sociopaths who crave power and control so desperately that they would whore their own mothers, daughters and wives to get elected.
To degenerates like Knollenberg, taking Muslim money, that might be covered with the blood of dead Israeli Jews and/or US citizens, means nothing. Until someone discovers it.
Then they do the jive-shuck-dance, return the money, issue a statement that says they ‘didn’t know’ where the money came from, and then they go back to what they do best–prostituting.

Everyone who reads this should send Mike Bosnic a check even if it’s only for a $1. This bum Marty Knollenberg needs to be defeated.
I plan on mailing him one.

HERE’S A COPY OF AN E-MAIL I SENT TO MARTY KNOLLENBERG ASKING HIM ABOUT THIS:
Dear Marty,
My husband and I spoke with you a few weeks ago when you were canvassing our neighborhood, Windmill Point North. We live at the corner of Blair and Dayton and we spoke for a while on our front porch. Right now, I have a sign in my yard for you and was planning to have one for your dad, closer to election time. I’ve worked on your father’s campaigns in the past.
I received an e-mail from a friend of mine claiming both you and your father have accepted donations from known Hezbollah associates. I was wondering what your take these allegations are. Unfortunately, I’ve tried numerous times to send it to you within this e-mail but I keep getting rejected as ‘spam’ or it says ‘virus detected’ and is rejected by your server. If you would be so kind as to contact me, I could let you know what the exact content of these e-mails are.
I have also received similar links to sites or e-mails referencing your father and his receipt of money from the same sources. Although I’ve sent a few e-mails asking his take on things, I have not heard from him or his office in Washington. I’ve got a very strong view on Hezbollah and Hamas and consider both groups and any people tied to them in any way, terrorists. I’m sure you’ll understand my concern and why I’m asking.
Stephanie
HERE’S THE RESPONSE I GOT BACK FROM HIM:
Stephanie,
Both my father and I have not received money from Hezbollah associates. We have accepted money from Lebanese individuals but not from anyone supporting Hezbollah efforts. The donor that is being cited is actually a Christian Lebanese.
Marty
I have responded to him saying that these people may be Christians but it is a documented fact that they support Hezbollah. I’ll post any response I get.
STEPHANIE:
MARTY IS EITHER A COMPLETE LIAR OR COMPLETE DUMMY–NEITHER OF WHICH IS DESIRABLE FOR A POSITION REPRESENTING YOU IN THE MICHIGAN HOUSE.
IN FACT, THERE ARE SOME CHRISTIAN LEBANESE WHO SUPPORT HEZBOLLAH AND ARE ALLIED WITH SHEIKH NASRALLAH. (I’VE WRITTEN ABOUT THEM, BACK IN FEBRUARY, HERE:
http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2006/02/bad_news_in_leb.html)
MARTY KNOLLENBERG “JUST HAPPENED” TO GET–AND WILLINGLY ACCEPT–CONTRIBUTIONS FROM TWO OF THOSE “CHRISTIANS” WHO NOT ONLY SUPPORT HEZBOLLAH AND SYRIA–BUT ONE OF THEM IS THE SON OF THE THEN-HEZBOLLAH-BACKED DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER OF LEBANON. THEIR RELIGION IS A DISTINCTION WITHOUT A DIFFERENCE. MARTY’S DADDY PAID THEM AND THEIR HEZBOLLAH OFF WITH MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS (USED TO FUND WEAPONS USED TO KILLS JEWS AND AMERICAN TROOPS). AND THEN THEY PAID OFF MARTY’S DADDY AND LITTLE MARTY, HIMSELF. I CERTAINLY HOPE VOTERS GIVE LITTLE MARTY HIS OWN VERSION OF THE PAY-OFF . . . ER, KISSOFF AT THE POLLS ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 8TH.

Thanks for bringing this out, Debbie. As a resident of Michigan’s 41st state house district, I appreciate knowing this information.
In addition, I am the Secretary and Interim president of the Troy-Clawson Republican Forum and we sponsored a debate between he and Mike B. last month. I knew Marty wasn’t the brightest crayon in the box (Debbie – worse than “Sepia”…;o), but if he’s thrown off his talking points (basicly, “I have a contract, a jobs plan and literature!!”), he’s like a deer in the headlights …except maybe noisier. His intellectual acumen and general brain power (or lack thereof) notwithstanding, his Daddy intends to see he doesn’t lose because that would make two losses in as many years. If you plan to retire and let your son inherit his kingdom on the Potomac, him being a two-time loser just won’t do!
Anyhow, thanks again, Debbie and Steph, for exposing Marty for what he is – disingenuous at best – a flat-out liar, at worst. And Steph, I’ll look forward to his next tap dancing routine in response to your second e-mail.
Barbara of Troy
P.S. Steph – I’m in the south part of Troy and can get you a Bosnic sign a.s.a.p.! Just say the word here and it’s done, hon! ;o)
BARBARA:
GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE! I CONCUR WITH ALL THAT YOU’VE WRITTEN ABOUT MARTY KNOLLENBERG AND POPS KNOLLENBERG. THROW THE BUMS OUT!

Barb,
Can you tell me who else is running against Marty? Arent’ Pappageorge and Taub running for this same seat?
Also, although I’ve e-mailed him, I’m still wondering where the heck Bob Gosselin is going. I absolutlely LOVE Bob!

Steph-MI on July 29, 2006 at 9:37 pm

Okay – got confused. Pappageorge and Taub are running for state senate – District 13. Okay-get me a Bosnic sign ASAP. I live just off Long Lake Road near Dequindre – do you know who is running for the Oakland County Board of Commissioners for my District – or rather, do you know if I’m District 13 or 19??!! Bob Gosselin is apparently running for that position for District 13 while Howrylak is running for 19.

Steph-MI on July 29, 2006 at 10:27 pm

Steph,
Check the top of your voter registration card for your county commissioner district number. Bob G. is running against the incumbant Molnar (RINO establishment guy like Marty K.) and Howrylak is running in Dist. 19 against 4, count ‘em FOUR, other Republicans for the seat being vacated by the retiring Chuck Palmer (another RINO establishment guy).
As for a Bosnic lawn sign, though you and I are real life geographical neighbors (I’m north of Maple between Livernois and Rochester), on here, we are basicaly anonymous blogging ships passing in cyberspace. Therefore, if you get on Mike’s website and request a sign, I’m sure he will get one to you post haste. In fact, I understand he’s been following our bloging conversation so I wouldn’t be surprised if he has one ready and waiting just for you! ;o).
And Debbie, great minds do indeed think alike. Never in “sepia”…always bright, sharp and in living color, girl!
B of T
P.S. Debbie – by the way, the “color” reference is from our conversation last Spring while leaving the Oakland Co. courthouse after a recall language hearing at which you spoke. And you got it done, as per usual…;o)
WHAT IS THE ADDRESS OF BOSNIC’S WEBSITE? I CAN’T FIND IT AND WANT TO POST A LINK AND ALSO AN ONLINE WAY FOR PEOPLE TO DONATE.

BarbaraofTroy on July 29, 2006 at 11:28 pm

Steph,
Apparently, Mike B. doesn’t think I’m busy enough helping him already so I now will also be dropping-off a lawn sign to you in the next couple days….;o)
Thanks for your support!
B of T

BarbaraofTroy on July 29, 2006 at 11:44 pm

Debbie,
Mike’s website is: http://www.MikeBosnic.org, but it is unfortunately not able to receive donations.
However, if anyone wants to support Mike (and help defeat a Knollenberg), donations would be gratefully received in the form of a check made out to: Committee to elect Mike Bosnic, 370 Roth Blvd., Clawson, MI 48017. I’m sure he would greatly appreciate the the support and encouragement that would provide!
I know Mike and he’s in it to win it. Despite some big time forces working against him, he’s confident that, with God’s help, he can get it done!
Thanks again, Debbie, for all you do to expose the dangerous tentacles of corruption gripping our political system and culture in America. You are truly a valueable resource and tenacious treasure!! ;o)
B of T

BarbaraofTroy on July 31, 2006 at 9:40 am

Barb,
Do you need my e-mail address or something in order to find my house?? LOL! I NEED my sign. I’m hopping mad now. I got e-mail spam from someone proclaiming to be ‘MikeBosnicisaLiberal’ and it contained pictures of him at some Democrat fundraiser as well as some endorsement letter stating they thought he would be a ‘moderate’ voice of reason. Anyway, never in all my years of being a GOP activist have I ever received SPAM dissing a GOP candidate – which so obviously is from the other GOP condidate. I’ve received similar printed material via mail with the same allegations against Mike.
Someone needs to make printed material with exactly what is here on Debbie’s website to send out about BOTH Knollenbergs. I’m really ticked off now.

Steph-MI on July 31, 2006 at 8:54 pm

Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just
wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your articles.
Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the
