As I’ve noted previously, in the early 1980s, a number of Muslim-owned gas stations were caught ripping off customers in the Midwest, particularly in Michigan.
They were giving customers far less than a gallon for each gallon of gas they paid for and thought they were getting. Many of them, including members of the Hezbollah Safieddine family, were prosecuted, as were Muslims with ties to the P.L.O. Federal agents and investigators from the Department of Agriculture found that the money from this scam was being funneled to Palestinian terrorists groups and factions of the PLO, and some of it is believed to have gone to Hezbollah.
Well, the gas fraud–even in the time of $4 gallons–continues. Michigan Department of Agriculture investigators have been inspecting gas stations and found that many owners are defrauding their customers. If you live or buy gas in Michigan, read this list of gas stations near you whose pumps gave customers less than a gallon of gas for each gallon of gas they purchased. Not all of the gas stations are owned by Muslims, but most of them are. Cheating the Infidel still isn’t wrong and never will be. And–whaddya know?–Hezbollahs Safieddine family is up to its same old tricks and has several gas stations on the list.
These investigations are not the result of spotchecks. Unfortunately, in Michigan, investigations are only complaint-driven. No complaint, no investigation. So there are plenty of others who’ve gotten away with it and continue to cheat unwitting customers.
Check your own state agencies to see who investigates gas stations and which ones you can’t trust to give you the amount of gas for which you paid. You’d be surprised. Sadly, some of the stations on the Michigan list are stations I’ve patronized.
And I’m sure Michigan drivers aren’t the only ones being ripped off.
