About That Op-Ed in Today’s Detroit Free Press: WITHOUT My Permission, Detroit Paper Guts My Op-Ed To Remove All Terrorism References to Protect “Former” Islamic Terrorist, U.S. Attorney

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE #2 – Free Press Editor Stephen Henderson displays more ignorance and shows more true colors; Now, Islam is a “race.” ****
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE – Free Press Editor Stephen Henderson shows his true colors ****
Some of you may have seen “my” Op-Ed column in today’s Detroit Free Press. I say “my” in quotation marks because it is NOT MY WORK. I DID NOT WRITE IT. Had I seen the draft of what ran, I’d have said, “DON’T run it.” But I did not get that chance.
This whole experience has been very enlightening to me, because it shows me just how much the Freep sees itself as the protector of Islamic terrorists and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad. It’s eye-opening. I also shows me the extent to which Free Press editors will go–they lied and made up allegations about me–to keep my opinion from getting exposure. Sorry, guys (and gals), but the Internet isn’t owned by you, and you can’t stop me.

Detroit “Free” Press: On Guard For Islamic Terrorists, Imad Hamad, & U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy for 100-Odd Years

I can say, without qualification, that I’ve never ever submitted a comment to the Free Press website. I don’t do that. I comment on THIS website. But many of my Detroit-area readers have posted my work or links to it in the comments section of the Free Press site. I have nothing to do with that, and it’s beyond my control. The pan-Islamist Free Press news editors don’t like that. You can’t have another point of view than the one they express that “Islam is peace,” etc. But the reason my many Detroit readers–without my involvement or encouragement–post my work or links to it on the Freep site is that they’re sick of the Islam co-opted “news” they get from most Free Press reporters.
I feel bad for Stephen Henderson, because I believe he’s a good guy who tried to do the right thing. He does try to put in all points of view on his op-ed page. But the PC forces at his paper over-ruled him and put him between a rock and a hard place in running my work. That’s standard practice, apparently at the Free Press, and for the Mainstream Media, and why I’ve had to have my work on what’s going on in Detroit run in other papers, like the far more read/far more prestigious Wall Street Journal and New York Post–both more open to many points of view.
And then, there’s the standard practice at the Free Press. In February, for example, Detroit Free Press Reporter Dan Cortez initially reported on the Freep website that Michigan State Police detectives and federal agents said that a giant food stamp fraud ring they foiled was likely tied to Hezbollah and that they were investigating that. Those two paragraphs were removed from the story by Detroit Free Press editors Theresa Mask and Ritu Sehgal to protect to the Detroit Muslim community and hide this from readers. And not a single name, of the 18-21 Muslim food stamp fraud ring members, was mentioned in the story.
When I asked Mask and Sehgal why they did this, both responded, “I don’t have to answer that. I’m an editor for the Free Press. I don’t have to tell you why we removed it.” Both hung up. Complaints to their boss, Detroit Free Press Editor Jeff Taylor, their boss, were dismissed. He said the issue “is far more complicated than you think.” Um, not really. Whenever they tell you it’s “complicated,” that’s an elitist exercise in camouflaging something that’s actually very simple. They just want the protesting “little people” to forget about it and go away.
Henderson says that Detroit Free Press editors tell him that Hamad says I’ve been “stalking” him. That’s interesting to me, since I’ve never in my life contacted the guy, yet I have many unanswered, creepy e-mails sent to me from Imad Hamad, in which he begs me to meet with him and/or have a “dialogue” with him. While I never responded, he didn’t get the message and kept sending ‘em. Someone at the Freep desperately needs to consult a dictionary on the definition of stalking. I’ve been stalked by Hamad, NOT the other way around. Writing about and exposing an Islamic terrorist, which is not stalking. If reporting the facts is “stalking,” the Freep editors can rest assured that they are NOT “stalkers,” especially not editors Mask, Sehgal, and Taylor.
Here’s the e-mail sent to me by Stephen Henderson, Deputy Editorial Editor of the Free Press explaining the PC-whitewash of Islamic terrorism from my piece:

Subject: edited column.
Hey Debbie, there have been some late changes to your column that I need to explain.
We think that, given your recent rather personal run-ins with Imad Hamad on our forums [DS: Again, this never happened. I DON'T comment on Free Press forums. I comment HERE on MY site. But, now, it's official--the Freep is the official guard for Imad Hamad.], it’s probably not a great idea to have you commenting on “Islamic terrorists” in your Fieger piece. Frankly, it will only cause you grief and detract from the excellent point you’re making about the frivolity of campaign finance laws. Without those comments, you can’t even rationally be accused of being anti-Arab or anti-Muslim; any detractors will have to focus on your arguments alone.
I’m sorry for that, and sorry for the late notice, but it’s better, in our judgment, to have you avoid commenting on that issue for us.
So I had to do a little surgery with your piece . . . I think it hardly reads any different..

Um, “a little surgery”? More like a heart transplant. No, make that a mastectomy.
To say I’m PO’d is an understatement. But it is instructive, just how occupied by PC and Pan-Islamism the Detroit Free Press pages and leadership is. I abided by the 650-word limit and sent the piece in, early Monday Morning. Then, at 5:19 p.m. yesterday, I was sent a completely different version, which I never saw or approved. I first read it, along with you, this morning.
Compare what I sent the Free Press, with the completely terrorism-whitewashed BS they ran. Here’s what I, in fact, wrote, which was set to run until 5:19 p.m. The deleted parts are in bold:

By Debbie Schlussel
Who is a bigger threat to America–Geoffrey Fieger or Islamic terrorists?
If you listen to the feds downtown, the answer is the former.

While soldiers are dying overseas and crime is at its highest levels in Detroit, we are focusing on the extremely dangerous . . . sub-rosa campaign contributions by Fieger to a failed Democratic Presidential candidate?
When FBI agents raided Fieger’s offices and his employees’ homes, they outnumbered FBI agents who searched for Osama Bin Laden in the caves of Tora Bora. While the U.S. Attorney’s Office has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars prosecuting Fieger, Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse finds that U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III–a Bush nominee to the federal Bench–has one of the country’s lowest rates of pursuing terrorist cases referred to him by federal law enforcement agencies, and an even more paltry rate of convictions in the few cases pursued.
Yet, confidential informants and furtively taped conversations at the Fieger law offices surpass the energies in any local federal terrorism case pursued to date. Fieger was pursued with far more vigor and faces far more time in prison than Nada Nadim Prouty, a Hezbollah spy in both the FBI and CIA.

As a conservative, I could not disagree more with Fieger’s politics and career achievements–representing Dr. Death and expanding America’s litigation explosion. But I appreciate the trial going on at the federal court building as a waste of federal firepower–a politically–motivated burn of resources that won’t achieve much for the citizens of the Eastern District of Michigan, regardless of outcome.
Fieger and law partner Ven Johnson are accused of violating federal campaign finance laws and the $2,300 limits they impose on donations per Presidential candidate per cycle. The Justice Department claims that Fieger illegally reimbursed employees for donations to John Edwards to get around the limits.
It’s not the first time U.S. Attorney Murphy squandered federal tax dollars on this kind of prosecution. Amongst the accusations leveled at Carl Marlinga–who was ultimately acquitted–were allegations that Marlinga induced some contributors to launder campaign contributions through family members to get around federal limits for his Congressional run.
But these laws are inconsistently applied and anachronistic. That’s why Fieger’s donations aren’t a hot-button issue. Talk radio is not exploding with callers angry about what Fieger and Johnson allegedly did. Wealthy Americans routinely skirt campaign finance limits by legally donating thousands more through their under-aged children. Also legal are the myriad independent expenditure campaigns, which spend millions for and against candidates, whose donors’ identities are often murky and unknown until after the election. The same goes for millions of dollars in free campaign publicity Oprah Winfrey gave Barack Obama on the campaign trail, in her magazine, and on her daytime talk show–worth well over the $2,300 limit.
No-one’s indicting Winfrey. So, why is the government going after Fieger? Wouldn’t it be better if we did away with campaign finance limits? Not that I will ever be able to give anything approaching $2,300 to a candidate. But campaign finance limits drive wealthy donors underground, encouraging them to hide donations through third parties. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Now, more than a decade into the internet age, with instant candidate campaign finance reporting, it’s time to do away with Byzantine, anachronistic campaign finance limits and equally backward prosecutions. If Geoffrey Fieger wants to donate over $100,000 to a candidate, let him. So long as there’s full reporting, campaign opponents can always use that information against the willing recipient.
Campaign finance rules began after insurance executive W. Clement Stone donated $2 million to Richard Nixon’s re-election effort in 1972. Jealous politicians and the loyal opposition balked. And now here we are.
I’m not sure it’s so bad if a candidate is “bought,” so long as there’s full disclosure of who’s doing the buying.
Prosecuting Fieger is just “bad priorities.” It’s the litigation equivalent of digging for Jimmy Hoffa.

That this version didn’t run is absurd. But, sadly, I couldn’t avoid the PC-police at the Detroit Free Press. And, as I noted, it’s not the first time the Detroit Free Press has whitewashed Islamic terrorism out of what you read.
The Detroit Free Press’ slogan is “On Guard for [100-odd] Years.” Needs to be changed to:

On Guard for Islamic Terrorists and Imad Hamad.


**** UPDATE: Earlier today, above, I wrote that Detroit Free Press Stephen Henderson was a good guy, but based on his responses to some of my readers, I’ve re-evaluated that assessment. While he was nice to me and told me he wanted to write the piece as is, it appears that he was either not telling me the truth or has changed his story as a stuck response to readers. Either way, instead of defending his paper’s absurd PC, pan-Islamist editorial censorship policies, he’s attacking me.
Here’s an exchange between Henderson and a righteously disappointed reader:

Subject: RE: Gutting D. Schlussel op/ed
Are you joking? You obviously know nothing about the newspaper business.
EVERY op/ed is subject to editing. Every one. Debbie’s was changed less so than any I’ve touched in the past three weeks.
She is whining about three grafs that were excised, essentially to protect HER from charges that she has some wanton anti-Arab bias that infects everything she writes.
That’s what editors DO, my friend, always have, and always will.

Nice elitist, patronizing response. Very defensive, too. Interesting way of elevating a profession that ain’t rocket science and telling my readers they “just don’t understand.”
Um, no, Stephen, editors EDIT. They don’t editorialize, unless they, themselves, are writing an editorial or commentary. What Henderson and his editors above did was change the point of view of what I wrote. That’s NOT editing. That’s writing, in my name, something I didn’t say, because they don’t want people to read what I really wrote.
Hey, Stephen, whatever happened to those “Sunshine Week” editorials you wrote about the public’s right to know everything? As we now know, they were total BS and complete hypocrisy.
One other thing, my writing is NOT anti-Arab. I’ve praised many Arabs on this site. I write about Islamists, something Henderson would know if he had even the slightest interest in accuracy, which he apparently does not.
Hilarious that a guy who is the deputy editorial page editor of a major newspaper in the heart of Islamic America, still–6.5 years after 9/11–doesn’t know that there is a difference between Arabs and Muslims. Hello . . . ?
Still, good to know that he and the Freep see themselves as the guardians of all things Arab. Best to see anything they “report” in that vein, ie., propaganda and advocacy, NOT journalism.
**** UPDATE #2: Hmmm . . . getting more and more examples of responses to readers from an angry Stephen Henderson, op-ed page editor for the Detroit Counterterrorism-Free Press. Boy, was I ever wrong in my assessment that he was a good guy. Thought I was a good judge of character, but you know what they say about exceptions to every rule.
Now, I’m a “racist.” Islamic terrorism is a race? Since when? What color are they? Playing the race card–the 2nd to last refuge of a scoundrel; the first refuge of Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson . . . and Detroit Free Press op-ed page editor Stephen Henderson.
Oh, and now Henderson is saying that all terrorists are Arabs. I wrote in the piece about Islamic terrorists. Again, the dude needs a clue on the diff between Arabs and Muslims, which living in the Detroit area is really like knowing how to read at a first-grade level. And again, Arabs–whom I do NOT attack on my site and whom I’ve praised (Michael Monsoor, Mayor Allan Monsour, Brigitte Gabriel, Edward Masry, etc., etc., etc.)–are a “race”? What an ignoramus.
It’s all in this exchange yet another reader, Joe, had with Henderson. Joe says, “Debbie, he claims to be saving you from yourself. Helluva nice guy.” Yup, Joe has him pegged. I love his face, all two of them:

Hijack?
We excised THREE grafs on a topic that, frankly, she has NO credibility on. [DS: Um, he wishes I had no credibility.]
Her piece got the lightest editing of ANY I’ve touched in the last three weeks. What a whiner.
Everyone knows she’s anti-Arab. . . they would simply have disregarded her very, very strong points about the First Amendment and political prosecution if that other stuff had stayed in.
That is one of the paramount roles of an editor: to save authors from themselves, when necessary. [DS: I don't need saving, but when I do, I'll ask for Prince Charming, not Prince of PC.]
Sorry you think that is “murdering” a “dying” industry. You’re just wrong.
As a point of example, take a look at the comments underneath her piece on our website:
http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/articleAID=/20080502/OPINION02/805020337/1068/OPINION#pluckcomments
No one is trashing Debbie for her well-known racist rants; they’re arguing the merits of her argument in the piece. That’s not an accident, and owes entirely to the editing we did.

So much for Henderson’s dumb “We Changed Debbie’s Opinion Column to Save Her From Her Opinion on Islamic Terrorists, So No-One Would Attack Her On That” Defense. Check out the Free Report From Thursday, which reported on what I wrote about Ali Jawad’s ties to Hezbollah. No comments there attacking me in the way he claims (not that I can’t handle it if they did–what am I, a powder puff?):

Maybe the readers that take exception to what she writes about are from the vast Islamic extremist bastion of Dearborn. Maybe they are too blind to assess the threat around them and the importance of the case for our national security. I guess if a lot of people that want more lenient sentences for guilty helpers of terrorist write enough comments in your paper, it just shows the clientele that has become your audience. I’m not one of them. I’m not a sheeple. Your credibility with your extremist supporters is obviously intact. She has gone undercover into mosques and community centers, risking her life for her country. That is credibility.
Her work is on display everyday and credits sources. Just because she’s Jewish doesn’t mean she’s without credibility.

Slow day at the dying paper today, huh? You got right back to me in like 95 seconds. There has to be more important anti terror stories out there to expose. Guess that’s not your main priority these days. Good job.

Although I did not ask Joe or the other reader who wrote Henderson to write, I think the letters and the responses they got are enlightening, especially to me. Henderson was dishonest with me and played good cop/bad cop, claiming that he did not agree with the views of his fellow liberal Freep editors about my writing. But, with the plethora of immature, baseless name-calling about me, which he’s very unprofessionally engaged in with my readers, he’s betrayed that claim. And I just have one name to call him: liar.
Joe got the better of this guy and pointed out why the Freep and other mainstream newspapers are losing their appeal and their circulation is nosediving.

I’m all for anti-Islam, its about damn time we started calling a spade a spade. For all the atrocities being committed under the unbrella of Islam-(the religion of peace) I have yet to see any critical admonishments from the followers of the rightous Islam religion we keep getting shoved down our throats.
If you don’t condemn the acts of your followers of your same religion, then you must apparently harbor their same feelings and beliefs.
PC just means we are not allowed to identify our enemy, and I for one am F***ing sick of it!

Perhaps, but as long as people continue to say “islamic” and “terrorism” that means your blaming the muslims for violence against non muslims.
I for one am tired of hearing “Islam is a religion of peace” and then they turn right around and kill people to prove that.

This is a telling article that was in the Canadian Free Press-not sure why its not on national television-I guess it has to do with that PC bull sh*t
A tree grew in Brooklyn.
No longer.
It has been uprooted by the Masjid At-Taqwa and other radical mosques that have sprouted up like huge mechanical mushrooms throughout the borough.
If you tarry in front of the Masjid At-Taqwa in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district and dare to take a photo, you might get hauled away by a group of angry Muslims in Islamic attire to the basement of the facility where a group of twenty ìsecurity guardsî in karate suits will interrogate you.
This sounds preposterous.
But it happened on a weekend in late April at 3:00 in the afternoon.

When will you realize, all groveling to muslims is based on one simple principle: White people jumping whenever ANY non-White says ‘boo’. You are wasting your time trying to document and footnote why you are correct. You are obviously correct. But Whites don’t have the courage to admit that a social war is happening right in front of them, and it is racial and ethnic. It is a fight to the death, with the winner taking territory, and the loser whining until his gene line stops. The muslims will deny there is a war, because they are winning without fighting. Same with the other groups.

At last count, over 80% of US mosques and islamic centers were financed with Saudi money, and under the influence of the Wahabi murder cult. Of course, $0 US goes to indoctrinate Muslims in the Saud terrorist entity because only Islam can be practised in that tyranny. Saudi and Oprah cultivation of agents of influence in the US political system is legal; loose interpretation of US election law is illegal. Makes sense to a moron.

Nice elitist, patronizing response. Very defensive, too. Interesting way of elevating a profession that ain’t rocket science and telling my readers they “just don’t understand.”
Well said Debbie. I am so glad that you cut through all the BS for us. When I read Henderson’s first couple of lines, I thought, well maybe that’s how it works, eh? Your response really addresses that spin crap.
“What Henderson and his editors above did was change the point of view I wrote. That’s NOT editing. That’s writing in my name something I didn’t say, because they don’t want people to read what I really wrote.”
I think that is so well said and it is exactly the truth. I don’t think they know who they are dealing with in you, Debbie. The idea that such edits would go unapproved by the author is very scary.
Thanks for “truthing” them out here. This episode, though aggravating for you perhaps, shows clearly the way things are compromised to islamists at the Freepistan, just like the islamic terrorist pandering Newsistan.

BB on May 2, 2008 at 7:56 pm

Stephen Henderson is a patronizing prick. He went on the defensive because he was so wrong. Obviously, Henderson knows NOTHING about the truth. The Detroit Free Press panders to terrorists and has ZERO credibility. (and almost zero circulation) Henderson is a protector of Islamic terrorists in general and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad in particular. Henderson lied and made up allegations about Debbie Schlussel to keep her opinion from getting exposure. Henderson, does not understand the newspaper business. There is a huge difference between editing and editorializing.

That is so true. Muslims are attempting to make themselves the “Arab race” so they can claim racism if you oppose Islam’s methods of “spreading” around the globe.
There is this Palestinian jihadist in the Virginia Tech English department (I wonder if he taught Cho Sueng-hui), Steven Salaita http://www.english.vt.edu/directory/s.html, who has written a book where he claims there is rampant anti-Arab bias in America. He keeps winning awards about this crap and has become a hero in the Palestian “liberation” movement. I don’t know anyone who is against Arab Christians coming to America. But they want to confuse the issue:
http://www.english.vt.edu/alumni/feastfall2007.pdf (see page 6)
They are the racists because they claim that Islam equals being Arabic.

I guess the Free Press has never heard of the First Amendment and feels that is ok to edit ones opinion and not ask for approval before doing so. They completely changed her opinion piece then published it without her permission.
Her original article made the point that U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III has one of the lowest rates of pursuing terrorist cases and does not seem to think Islamic Terrorists are a threat to America.
This country was founded on freedom of speech but apparently, the editors at the Free Press never got the memo. This is exactly why most Americans do not trust the Mainstream Media anymore, they cannot even trust them not to censor a private citizens opinion.

One response from Henderson will convince you that I am correct in my assessment of this mental midget. Henderson is an antisemitic, racist prick. Next time I will tell you how I REALLY feel about this terrorist apologist.

So Islam has joined the race game! They can now partner with ìHispanicî and the re-classification of pre-American aborigines and their descendants as Native Americanóartifacts to be revered and served. The designation (Hispanic) was shaped and proposed by a Trilateral Commission member (the late Caspar Weinberger) to make a basket of third world nationalities appear as a noble historic entity. Our Constitution says regardless, not regardful of race, creed and color. America was founded to become a civilization, not a mere culture-zoo.
