Nasser Beydoun & Nael AbuNab: Lies By the Islamist Spinmeisters You Saw on FOX News Yesterday

By Debbie Schlussel
If you watched FOX News Channel, yesterday (Monday), you may have seen Nasser Beydoun, Chairman of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce, and Nael AbuNab using every excuse imaginable that Muslim men purchasing cellphones and plotting to blow up Michiganians on a bridge are not terrorists.
But I have a few questions for them that FOX News didn’t ask. And a few questions for FOX News.

For FOX News:
* Why did you have a convicted felon on your news network (unless he’s on to talk about fraud)? The man, AbuNab, was convicted of 4 counts relating to fraud. There were many more counts. He pleaded no contest to a few in a deal. He has four aliases. He sold people cars with rolled back odometers, false titles, etc. His business was shut down because of it. But he lied to the British press and blamed 9/11 for it. Did 9/11 force people commit fraud? Perhaps a new disease has now been discovered: 9/11 Islamist Man Dishonesty Syndrome.
FOX News Channel apparently had the Not-Doing-Any-Research Syndrome by featuring criminal AbuNab on its network (except to talk about auto sales fraud). Here’s an excerpt from what I wrote on him in 2005:

AbuNab was convicted in December 2003 on two counts of conspiracy, one count of criminal enterprise, and one count of false pretenses. He pled no contest to rolling back car odometers and issuing false titles at a Detroit car dealership he ran.
And the fraud continues. This summer, after the London bombings, AbuNab put one over on the Sunday Times of London’s Douglas Rogers, to whom AbuNab lied about the end result of the car dealership–claiming it was a result, not of his criminal fraud and deceit, but of 9/11 backlash against Muslims and Arabs.
” ‘After September 11 our community was under siege, we faced the backlash,’ he [AbuNab] says. ‘I lost a business. But I weighed my love for the country that had given me a home and the love for my faith and I found no contradiction.’ ”
Cry me a river. Or rather, cry the river for the real victims of the real reason for the failure of AbuNab’s business–the phony odometers and false auto titles AbuNab sold.

* Why did you not ask Nasser Beydoun about his attendance and speeches at several pro-Hezbollah events in Dearbornistan, at which he observed a moment of silence “for the martyrs”? At another Hezbollah rally, why didn’t Beydoun denounce a speech by Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi that called Jews and Americans “diseased” (with Beydoun in attendance), among other anti-American, anti-Semitic utterances he heard and for which he clapped? Why didn’t Beydoun condemn the prayers for the Mujahideen and martyrs? Or the calls to donate money to the “brothers and sisters” of Hezbollah, instead of buying clothes this year?

Nasser Beydoun:

Arab Chamber of Commerce Leader Cheered @ Hezbollah Rallies

For Beydoun:
* You claim that the cellphone buyers were “just businessmen” buying phones to re-sell them. If you truly believe that (and we know you don’t; it’s just knowing fertilizer), then why did the men separate the 1,000 cellphones from their packaging and throw away the chargers (which do have sizeable market value–in a quantity of at least 1,000 cellphone chargers)?
* Since you are such a supporter of Hezbollah, show us the detailed accounting for your Bint Jebail Development Foundation, so we can determine where the money really goes, once it hits South Lebanon and goes somewhere.
You can’t believe anything the two–Beydoun and felon AbuNab–say. We only wish FOX News Channel had done its homework, instead of giving a forum to these unAmerican, Islamist apologists for terror, one of whom should only be on to talk about his own experiences as a convicted criminal.
Next time, FOX News producers, try Google. It’s really a nifty invention.

They should try Lexis Nexis too. Today, the really good stuff can be looked up in moments where it used to take hours. No one will ever do research the way I did in graduate school ever again. Now its all at one’s fingertips and there’s absolutely NO excuse for ignorance. Dennis Prager called CBS the Communication For Barbarians Service. Just in jest, I’d label FOX the Folderol For Xtremists Network. For Islamofascist extremists that is. And they’re supposed to be “fair and balanced.” Not when they bring on a terrorist apologist like Nasser Beydoun who cheered Hezbollah and is now explaining away Muslim men (actually terrorists lying in wait) cell phone purchaes. Such in the tenor of the times, both of those expressions I just employed are verboten. There, my big mouth just landed me in trouble with CAIR!

Debbie can you get on Sean Hannity, Neal Boortz, any of the talk radio shows that understand this crap? The information you find on these people is amazing! That is really lazy and irresponsible of fox news to allow them a forum without any prior knowledge to their so called guest. Whats going on in Dearborn should be an alarm for the rest of America. Shit there are days when I feel we are really screwed and I don’t know if America is ever going to wake up. You are really doing a service – keep up the excellent work!

I always buy six cell phones at a time, and the chargers seperately, at four times what the package would cost me at Walmart. The instructions are in English, which don’t help me much.
Fox News is on drugs.

“Why did the men separate the 1,000 cellphones from their packaging and throw away the chargers (which do have sizeable market value–in a quantity of at least 1,000 cellphone chargers)?”
Finally, something specific to this case. You pose a good question here, Debbie. This Tracfone reselling operation is a complex issue regarding chargers, batteries, sim cards, etc. and the legalities and illegaties thereof. But what counts is they were reselling the phones to a guy in Dalls, who obviously requested the chargers to be separate from the handsets. Again, not a crime. The practice is so prevalent in Dallas that the phones are often sold out.
Debbie, I don’t think your usual red herrings and guilt-by-association rhetoric is going to work on this one. You say you’re an expert in terrorism, but once again, you have offered no evidence that these three guys are guilty of any crime. All you offer is scurrilous language and downright defamation.
What about due process, Debbie? What about the 5th and 14th amendments? That’s what America is based on. Do they carry no weight with your worldview?

COULDN’T watch Fox news yesterday because i had to get everything done before a certain JAP debuted on Howard 101!!!
After watching the first quarter of the game on ESPN, and yes, their announcing team sucked BIGtime, i turned you on and was pleasantly surprised at what was coming out of my Sirius.
You sound a whole lot calmer when you don’t have to deal with Artie, reasonable even…although your WNBA rant doesn’t hold water in Sacramento.
GREAT JOB—and hopefully you’ll get a gig with Sirius Right…without Artie Lange or whackos calling in to tell you to ride the Sybian, you’re not Stern show material—but as a political talk radio host, you ROCK.

Great questions that deserve and need to be asked. Your no holds barred approach is right on for this type of situation and news coverage.
As my best friend says – politicians and the media need to stop kissing the collective Muslim asses, and start doing their job – protecting their constituents and informing the public.

La Ventanita on August 15, 2006 at 10:03 am

Way to go, Debbie!
These barbarians come to America and continue to commit the crimes and fraud they’re used to committing in the Turd-World cesspools from whence they came. They see America as an opportunity – to commit crimes.
I also take exception to what the barbarian AbuScab said;
” ‘After September 11 our community was under siege, we faced the backlash,’ he [AbuNab] says. ‘I lost a business. But I weighed my love for the country that had given me a home and the love for my faith and I found no contradiction.’ ”
He says he loves this country?! He just defamed Americans by falsely claiming that Muzlums were the victims of a backlash and he lost his business as a result. If he loved America then he wouldn’t be spreading lies about her. He DID, however, say that he loved his faith. Of course he does. That’s because Muzlumz are Muzlums first, second, and last. They have no allegiance to anything but Islam – the false religion.
AS for Fox, they’re becoming just as unreliable as the rest of the cable news shows. After all, Neil Cavuto has his head up the collective Muzlum ass, it’s not a surprise the same network would give two Muzlum frauds an opportunity to spin lies and defame America.

To Frankie Avalon,
“Keep moving. There’s nothing to see here. Keep moving, there’s nothing to see.”
Frankie Avalon must be another Muzlum lawyer working for the ACLU.

You know, we all want to give everyone a fair chance. And in today’s times of self absorbtion and materialism and instant gratification regarding a “what’s in it for us” type mentality… I think americans as a whole has shown a tremendous amount of restraint towards judging muslims and the nation of Islam as what moderate, good natured muslims claim it to be.
However, americans as a nation of immigrants who moved from europe to form a new experiment called democracy as always been a nation of tolerance. So much so, in fact that we now see a nation where apathy abounds.
During WW II, we did in deed, live in different times, even Japan knew that their cowardly attack on U.S. territory did in fact “wake a sleeping giant” and rather early on, knew that there was no way win against such a formidable advisary.
Today we find ourselves in very similar circumstances. The extreme islamic fundamentalist zealots view america as being asleep and therefor an easy target. And to a certain extent, we are. Part of it is that our free and open society makes us an easy target.
I submit that the events of Sept. 11 2001 was no more than nudging a snoring person under the covers to get them to quit snoring. It made us grumble and restless for a while and maybe a few harsh words before falling back into a slumber. (or if you prefer, “poking a grizzly bear with a stick a time or two while he is hibernating”).
But beware… I fear that if one, two or even three more significant events similar to the magnitude of Sept. 11 happens again, on our soil, they will awaken a nation of people, who at that point, the U.S. Government won’t be able to control.
I think our government fears this as well, for if something like that were to happen, they would be hard pressed to wage a war against those who attacked us, and at the same time, quell an uprising of citizens who rightously are frustrated at what appears to us, as a government who failed to protect us.
I sometimes believe, that is part of the reason why we see the government keep telling the masses, don’t worry… there’s no connection to terorism from recent events we see in the papers and the usual mantra the FBI, Chertoff, DHS and others in the goverment spews out daily. Such rhetoric is in direct opposition to common sense and logic. I believe the government is despartely trying to keep a lid on things regarding the citizens of our nation.
But I submit that the government as well as the terrorists are playing a dangerous game with us.
The government should take note and not mistake our basically tolerant nature as stupidity. If they continue the gameplan of dysinformation, down playing the obvious, and lying to the american public, they may find themselves in the position of having to quell an uprising of U.S. citizens frustrated at a government who appears to be a bunch of inept imbaciles who routinely lies to its citizenry.
If that happens, it will be a sad day indeed. And I believe that they can avoid that by leveling with the people and be honest about who our enemy is and just what the threats really are. Hey Uncle Sam… Trust your citizens! We have a great capacity for accepting the truth, but will not tolerate liars.
I certainly don’t advocate an uprising of any sort. That would be an ugly mess that would hurt scores of honest decent people. But human nature being what it is, I feel that a vast and growing number of americans from all backgrounds and walks of life are growing more intolerant of rhetoric the government continues to spread to its citizens.

You spewed”To Frankie Avalon,
“Keep moving. There’s nothing to see here. Keep moving, there’s nothing to see.”
Frankie Avalon must be another Muzlum lawyer working for the ACLU.”
You must have thought that joke was so funny that it needed to be posted twice. I beg to disagree. Adding Frankie in front of his name is weak, uninspired, and just downright boring. Not at all like your normal stuff bruno. You losing your touch?

I see Descent, the Internet security expert, is still posting from work, using his employer’s equipment, and on their time.
Gee, you must be REALLY busy.

*********BTW, how are your fellow employees treating you lately, hmmmm?**********

Thee_Bruno on August 15, 2006 at 5:16 pm

Wow, Fox News being slammed from the Right!

gregdn on August 15, 2006 at 5:43 pm

*********BTW, how are your fellow employees treating you lately, hmmmm?**********
Uhh, they’re giving me a raise, actually. Why do you ask?
Also, I see that you must be real busy at your job seeing as you’ve been posting during normal work hours…

Descent on August 15, 2006 at 8:50 pm

By the way, how hard did you have to beg your supervisor at wal-mart to let you use their display computers to post?

Descent on August 15, 2006 at 8:50 pm

To Descent into the Bowels of Darkness,
LMFAO!!!!!!!
I use my employer’s computer on my employer’s time. You know why? Because I am my OWN employer. That’s right, I’m self-employed, asswipe. And I work later at night to offset the time it takes to refute your asinine arguments.
ROTFLMAO!!!!
You fell right into my trap!
BWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…………..

Thee_Bruno on August 16, 2006 at 10:36 am

To Descent into the Cesspools of Life,
BTW, have you been taking care of/seeking proper medical treatment for that “condition” you have?

Thee_Bruno on August 16, 2006 at 10:38 am

Hey, gregdn,
Have you noticed that there’s still no word on FNC about the two FNC reporters kidnapped by Hezbollah? Maybe that’s why they’ve been putting on Muzlum apologists lately.
