I’ve written about Arab convenience store and gas station owners stealing winning lottery tickets from customers, before. Most of them are Muslim, though some are Christian Arabs. Third World values of ripping off “dumb American infidels” die hard. And, as many state and federal law enforcement officials have told me for years, a good deal of the winnings is suspected of going to Islamic terrorist groups “back home,” in addition to lining the store owners’ pockets. If they can find a way to rip off non-Muslims and make extra money to finance terrorism, it’s what they do. It’s called “halal money.” And it’s one of the many reasons I’ve given you for not patronizing Muslim-owned businesses (read my tips for deciphering which business are owned by Muslims).
Muslim Store Owners Ripped Off Many Lottery Winners, Including Milledge McCassell
Here’s the latest of many, many more such scams to come–another reason NOT to buy a lottery ticket (from a Muslim), this one in Jamaica, New York. In many cases, as in this one, the lottery winners ripped off by the Muslims are Black. There is tremendous racism in the Arabic and Islamic worlds, and they feel extra-empowered to take advantage of Black people.
The deli clerk who tried to swindle a grandfather out of a $14 million lottery ticket was the shopowner’s son – and he claims it was all a mistake, a source familiar with the case said Saturday.
“‘It was just an accident! It was just an accident!'” clerk Salem Al Saidi, 18, told investigators, according to the source.
Uh-huh. Sure, it was. Just like John Dillinger’s bank robberies were “just an accident.” It’s funny–the last time I wrote about this the Arab store owner also said it was “an accident.” Wow, a lot of “accidental” cheating of people out of their lottery winnings. Maybe they should take out “accidental” lying about lottery tickets insurance.
Milledge McCassell, 72, handed his ticket to the clerk Aug. 25 after a self-scan machine at the Dynasty Deli and Grocery in Jamaica told him he was the “Big Winner.”
But Al Saidi allegedly told the retired transit worker that the ticket wasn’t what he thought and gave him “a few dollars,” lottery officials said.
“You didn’t give me the big-winner ticket,” the teen told the retiree.
Al Saidi’s brother, 16-year-old Hashi, claimed yesterday that his brother wasn’t trying to rip off anyone and insisted the whole thing “was a mistake.”
“He was tired and threw out the ticket by accident,” the teenager said, recounting what his brother told him.
“The guy came back and they looked for the ticket in the trash and couldn’t find it,” he said. “Then, the cops came and they found it.”
He said his brother had been working full-time at Dynasty until he was fired two days ago over the missing lottery ticket.
That differs from the story McCassell and investigators are telling. McCassell says he went back three times and was turned away by Al Saidi and his brother Abdullah Al Saidi, 33, who claimed they “couldn’t find it in the garbage,” the source said.
Investigators went to the store to question the clerks and review electronic information. When the data cast doubt on Al Saidi’s story, the ticket suddenly reappeared, lottery officials said.
PUH-LEEZE. We all know what’s going on here. The Arab Muslim deli owners deliberately lied to the Black guy (they refer to Blacks as “abed” or “abeed”–slave or slaves), took his lottery ticket, and were going to cash it in for themselves, stealing his millions. That’s what they do. This isn’t the first time. And it definitely won’t be the last, alhamdillullah [praise allah].
McCassell finally got his big $8.7 million lump-sum payout on Friday – nearly a month after winning.
Queens prosecutors were investigating. No charges had been filed as of yesterday afternoon.
The deli has been banned from Lottery sales, and a source said state police were building a case to get Salem Al Saidi indicted.
About time. Some questions:
Who are the Al-Saidis? Where are they from? Where does the majority of their money from their all-cash business go? Will they denounce Hezbollah, HAMAS, and the Taliban? How much of their money is going to one of these groups or another Islamic terrorist group or a radical mosque or Islamic school right here in America? What fraction of it did they actually report as income on their taxes?
I would bet money that this family is under investigation by the feds for more than trying to cheat poor Black grandfathers out of millions in lottery winnings. But, per usual, the feds probably won’t do anything, so these people will probably do probation–if anything at all–for this massive attempt at stealing.
“Religion of Peace” and stealing much more than a piece of your lottery winnings.
