My Interview with Al-Arabiya

By Debbie Schlussel
Today, I taped a lengthy interview with Dubai-based Arabic TV network, Al-Arabiya, a rival network to the Terrorist News Network, Al-Jazeera (which I’ve also done). (Here’s a BBC profile of Al-Arabiya.)
It was for a September 11th fifth-year anniversary program to air on September 15th on “The Third Eye.” The interview will be part of an in-depth piece on America’s Islamic community, profiling, etc. post-9/11.
We’ll see how I come off after the editing process.

****UPDATE: Forgot to mention that the reporter and producer told me that the Islamic community in Dearborn does not like that I go undercover to some of their events. Too bad. If there weren’t two faces to their message, I wouldn’t need to go behind the mask of PR spin that is their public message to show you the real one.
The difference between their events and ours is eye-opening. If a Muslim came to our synagogues or fundraising dinners under cover, they would not hear hate toward Muslims–as I hear at their events toward Jews, Christians, and Americans. They wouldn’t hear prayers and moments of silence “for the martyrs” and various terrorist groups. We don’t have prayers and sermons about those things.
Our prayers are about bringing peace and prosperity to our community, our greater community, and our country, which is America. At the Islamic events I’ve gone to, it is sometimes questionable which county is their’s, but it’s usually quite evident it isn’t America.

Yeah, they’ll doctor up your images (like CBS did with The Perkster), only, in your case, they’ll put horns on your head, smoke coming out of your ears, and a pig snout of your face (Jews, after all, are descendants of pigs).
Then, they’ll play around with the soundtrack to make it appear that you’re a mental case, and as someone who endorses necrophilia and incest.
Don’t ever trust a Muzlum. Their religion REQUIRES them to lie to the infidel.

debbie will be an audio clip on your site to watch since the united states will not see this clip

That’s funny Debbie. They don’t like you to go into their mosque wearing a hijab, or whatever they wear, yet they’ll pitch a fit if someone wants them to take off their burka for a passport photo because of security concerns.

Everyone thought that Detroit had seen bad times due to the manufacturing sector suffering a recession. Seems to me that Detroit has bigger problems than just the loss of automobile jobs. How did this city become so unlucky?

Debbie, maybe they want you to wear the t-shirt that says, “We will not be silent”.
This Arabickering idiot wore a t-shirt that said “We will not be silent” and the airline officials made him remove it. That mohammeden snake complained to the omnipresent ADC which has “ordered an inquiry”.

Maybe you should not wear any t-shirt. Just continue going there in your burka — or else you will never come out of that rathole in one piece.

You need to start wearing audio/video equipment like they do in those Dateline stings and post this stuff on Youtube.

Debbie notice here that Seattle and San Francisco, two left wing cities, have spawned home grown Jihadist attacks. That’s probably no coincidence.

Speaking of Dubai, I just saw on a Islamic site that they are considering depositing 10% of their money into Euro-dollars. If something like this happened Arab-wide, would it damage the value of our dollar?
Here’s a simple prayer for Islamists to start:
Pray for the peace of Jersulam!
I offer this as to allegience to America: I’m sure most have seen it and I can not credit it (Debbie Might have written it)? :-)
Is Muslim-American an Oxymoron? Can a devout Muslim be a loyal, patriot American?
A) Theologically? NO. His allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Aribia.
B) Religiously? NO. No other religion is accepted except Islam (2:256)
C) Scriptually? NO. His alligiance is to the 5 pillars of Isalm and the Koran.
D) Geographically? NO. Must face and bow to Mecca to pray 5 times a day.
E) Socially? NO. He is forbidden to make friends with Christians or Jews. (Should do well with Liberal Dems).
F) Political? NO. MUST submit to the mullah’s (spiritual leaders). They believe in the annihilation of Israel (Lil Satan) and the destruction of America, The GREAT Satan.
G) Domestically? NO He is instructed to maryy 4 woman and beat and scourge a wife who disobeys him. (Has anyone seen the beating death by her parents of their U.S. daughter for not complying with tenants – my wife told me it was on Ct. TV, Discovery, or one of them)
H) Intellectually? NO. He cannot accept the Constitution, since based on BIBLICAl principles and believes the Bible corrupt. (AGAIN, should prosper under Liberal politicans).
I) Philosophically? NO. Islam, Muhammad, and the Koran do NOT allow freedom of religion and expression. (Will be Leading the charge for Liberal voters now)!

Apparently it’s just me (and Thee_Bruno whose opinions I usually agree with) but I am completely baffled by why you would do this interview on Al-Arabiya or why you did the one for Al-Jazeera for that matter. What in the world makes you think that they would not use you in some negative way to further their own hate of Jews and others? Or even to inform American Muslims how to be a bit craftier with their behaviors here so as to better go unnoticed by various authorities.
I’m not being facetious here, but do you actually think they would portray you and us in some sympathetic way? Or as some means to a better understanding between our nations? I’m obviously missing something here. I just don’t see their point for having you on other than to further their own cause.
I would sure like to see a transcript if one will be available. I can also read Arabic if that is available.

Also considering what Grateful1 said above proves the insanity (read greed) of the INS for allowing these people into our (or any Western) country to begin with. It guarantees a clash of cultures and bloodshed. All countries must necessarily have a dominant culture that makes the laws, establishes customs, norms of behavior, ad infinitum.
As Grateful1 has pointed out they will not, in fact, cannot submit to ours. A clear recipe for disaster.

In my first comment I asked:
“I’m not being facetious here, but do you actually think they would portray you and us in some sympathetic way?”
Let me ask this in a different way:
“ArenĂ­t you concerned that they will just use you as propaganda in some way?

Did you know Debbie that in the Arab world both of those stations are accused of being Zionist …
So where is the truth ….
wierd stuff … also Jazeera is hosted by Qatar emirate which is virtually occupied by the US. So seems to me there is more to it.
They hosted you debbie … so there goes
Stay well

Moslem religion requires one to be truthfull to ALL people including not only – so called – infidels – but also to atheists. In addition people of the holy books ( Jews and Christians ) are acknowledged as spouses and good neighbours ).
If that is not practiced somewhere , it is a different story. I am not a scholar in Islam nor am I a zealot. But hey …. let us not slander …
Keep it civilized and set an example
Stay well
