Amal Alamuddin: George Clooney’s Anti-Israel Druze Arab Chick; My Encounter w Her & Alamuddin Family – EXCLUSIVE

By Debbie Schlussel

Over the past few months, actor George Clooney’s been photographed all over the place with Amal Alamuddin, a very anti-Israel Lebanese Arab who worked for the United Nations and represented Wikileaks’ anti-American former chief, Julian Assange. The Lebanese legal book she authored is extremely anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian. Alamuddin, who was Clooney’s date to the Obama White House last month, is not Muslim. She’s Druze, which is an offshoot of Islam. I’m familiar with Ms. Alamuddin (pronounced “Ah-lah-muh-DEEN”) and her family because I met her and them at the wedding of her cousin in the mid-1990s. They are extremely anti-Israel, and I was subjected to their absurd, non-stop anti-Israel questions and comments as the only non-Arab (other than the bride and her family) at a dinner the night before the wedding.


Amal Alamuddin: George Clooney’s Anti-Israel Sharmutah

I went to law school with Alamuddin’s cousin (who has the same last name) and the cousin’s wife. I was friends with the cousin’s wife (who is not an Arab), and when they were dating in law school, I repeatedly heard from him about how he hated Israel and sided with the Palestinians and the P.L.O. Later, when I was invited to the the Alamuddin wedding, I was on the receiving end of more of that. As I noted, I was the only non-Arab at the pre-wedding dinner at Chicago’s now-defunct “Uncle Tonoose” restaurant. They all knew I was Jewish, and the conversations and questions directed at me were a mix of myself as both Jewish museum exhibit and target of anti-Israel questioning. Clooney’s future girlfriend was there, too, and she was in her late teens at the time (I was in my mid-20s).

The situation with the Alamuddin family was surreal, as I was asked repeatedly about “Jewish Europeans” “invading” Israel, er . . . “Palestine.”

That was funny, since at least a third of the Arabs at the table–the extended Alamuddin family and their friends–were blondes whose mothers were Swiss, Scandinavian, English, or of other European extraction. That’s especially true of those who were engaging in this cross-examination on alleged Jewish eugenics in Israel, er . . . “Palestine.” One of them, Nabil, was so blond he was what I would call “white blond,” and had bright green eyes. Many of these individuals lived in and were brought up in Europe in chalets, upper crust London flats, and at fancy boarding schools. They were more European than 75% of the citizens of Israel at the time–those who were kicked out of Arab countries and those who descended from families living in Israel for centuries. I was introduced to one of the guys at the table, an Alamuddin who was the first cousin of the groom and is also a cousin to Clooney’s latest moll. The guy was blond with blue eyes, as was his sister. I was told that this guy is a colonel in the Lebanese Air Force (such as Lebanon even has one of those). He and his sister grew up in Switzerland. But, yeah, let’s harp on the “evil European Jewish interlopers” in Israel. The irony–no, the utter hypocrisy–was thick.

The Alamuddin clan also asked me about alleged “racism” in Israel by Ashkenazic Jews (primarily Jews from Europe) against Sephardic Jews (primarily Jews from Arab countries, Africa, and Asia). I pointed out that, in fact, the reason there are so many Sephardic Jews in Israel is that they were treated a whole lot worse–expelled, and before that raped, murdered, and so on–by their “fellow” citizens in Arab nations. I also responded that they are treated a whole lot better in Israel (and nowadays, it’s really not much of a distinction at all anymore in Israel). Predictably, there was no response by the Alamuddins to how they and their countrymen, for instance, treated the Jews of Lebanon. If you need a refresher on this, check out my work on “What Happened to the Jews of Lebanon?” and learn about the deadly fate of Sephardic Jews like Ibrahim, Yehouda, and Yossef Benesti and Isaac Tarab and Haim Halala Cohen. Mr. Benesti’s “crime,” by the way, was handing out free candy from his store to children of all religions (including Muslims). Oh, and being a Jew. Needless to say, I held my own with this table of Jew-haters, whose disdain for and amusement with me, as the token “minstrel Jew” at the table, was quite apparent.

The Alamuddin family is a very wealthy, prominent Lebanese family that helped found Middle East Airlines and owned a good deal of Lebanon’s utilities. The family is also very prominent in the leadership of the Druze sect. The Alamuddin family patriarch, Sheikh Najib Alamuddin, became Chairman and CEO of Middle East Airlines in 1951, and he was very pro-Palestinian because a Palestinian-owned bank was a large investor in the airline. Alamuddin also blamed the 1967 Six Day War (and Israel’s impressive victory in it) for the near collapse of the airline. The Alamuddin wedding and reception I attended were so fancy and lavish, it looked to me like the festivities easily cost several hundred thousand dollars. All of it took place at Chicago’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Everyone there was “Sheikh” So-and-So or “Sheikha” So-and-So. It was like being at a Gulf State palace.

A little more about the Druze. Their religion is secretive, and they believe in the transmogrification of the soul. Their only similarities to Islam are the proscription against the consumption of pig products (which Muslims got from Judaism) and their observance of the two Muslim “eids” or festivals. Their bible is not the koran but the “Kitab Al Hikma” (Book of Wisdom). They are usually loyal to the country in which they live. One of my closest and most trusted friends is Druze and risked his life thousands of times to help Israel against the bad guys. Then, he did the same for America against the same bad guys. Whenever I’ve needed his help, he’s been there.

The Druze in Israel, for example, are very loyal to Israel and are allowed to serve in the Israeli Army. A Dr. Ruth Westheimer-narrated documentary, “The Olive and the Tree: The Secret Strength of the Druze,” about Israel’s Druze population (primarily in the Golan) is a great testament to Israel’s diversity and tolerance which is unmatched anywhere in the Middle East. (I could not find a link to the DVD for purchase, so the above link is to the companion book.)

However, the Druze in Lebanon, including the Alamuddins, are loyal to . . . ? Well, that depends. Sadly, the leader of the Druze in Lebanon, Walid Jumblatt, is something of a whore, and he’s all over the map. He’s gone back and forth from supporting Syria and Hezbollah, then the Christian-Sunni coalition opposing them in Lebanon. He cannot be trusted. Even though the Syrians murdered his father, Kamal Jumblatt, who was then the leader of Lebanon’s Druze, Walid Jumblatt had no problem allying with, aiding, and abetting the Syrians and their henchmen in Hezbollah. Some Druze are also active in the Syrian National Socialist Party, a terrorist group that set off car bombs and attacked Israel.

The Alamuddins have similar allegiances. But they are definitely very anti-Israel. As I learned in my own experience at the Alamuddin wedding.

And, so, I suppose it’s very fitting that far leftist, Obama superfan George Clooney would have a virulently anti-Israel Arab girlfriend.

I wonder if she gets satisfaction knowing that she’s just the latest sperm receptacle, er . . . concubine, slated for future disposal when he quickly gets sick of her and his Hollywood liberal elite Arabian Nights fantasy becomes boring. Just like all the others in the “George Clooney Harem Diaspora.”

Hmmm . . . maybe she should wear a Clooney slave bracelet. Just sayin’.

Heh. šŸ™‚ Very good, Debbie.

Barb on March 20, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    In the author’s mind, ‘hating’ Israel equates any and all opposition to the brutal repression that country has inflicted on the Palestinian people. You’re either a blind supporter of their brand of apartheid, or you’re a ‘hater.’ That’s all.

    paul s. s. on April 26, 2014 at 7:42 pm

      there is no Apartheid, only the propaganda that is used by you pieces of shit, I hope you and those like you get what you deserve in this earth

      k on April 26, 2014 at 8:19 pm

    Guess what? She’s gorgeous and George Clooney just proposed to her. So what if she supports Palestinian people’s right? Most people I know do. I don’t think she ever said she’s for the desstruction of Israel, etc. When people like you fly off the handle and try to engage in character assassination, you just end up making yourself look stupid and petty.

    kevingq on April 26, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    My what a biggoted rant I’ll say one thing she is gorgeous but your story is nasty

    Stephen Healy on April 26, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    For the uninformed..”sharmuta” is Arabic for whore, or prostitute. So a classy jew like “Barb” is entitled to slander and besmirch anyone’s reputation and character if they happen to oppose Israeli apartheid and ethnic cleansing policies. She left out another anti-Arab epithet popular among Jews and promoted by another classy Jewess, Pam Geller. At least she didn’t call her a savage “sharmuta”. As I said..”barb” is one classy Jew. Bet this won’t even make it on the board…

    Tom Harry on April 26, 2014 at 8:46 pm

Amusing but I have little interest in the various desert tribes. All 3rd worlders.

Morty on March 20, 2014 at 5:58 pm

Clooney is strongly interested in politics and
could be a danger to America and Israel if he ever ran for high office.

leecampbell on March 20, 2014 at 6:09 pm

    Thank you again Debbie for telling the, now widely verified, truth about Amal Alamuddin and her Anti American -except for the $$$ – arm dealing family.
    I appreciate your courage. George and Amal are not liked in England either and I cannot imagine George will do too well in Hollywood now.

    Maybe Bollywood?

    Cheryl on May 30, 2015 at 10:03 am

George Clooney likes to shop around, and Amal is the latest dollar store special.

Clooney is just another liberal who, in the end, treats women like garbage.

Jonathan E. Grant on March 20, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    Maybe it’s the other way around. Maybe women are using Clooney for his money and fame, and then leaving him. At any rate, the man’s politics are irrelevant.

    Seek on March 21, 2014 at 7:07 pm

Thank you Debbie, for the ongoing education.

Thank you for being brave and blunt.

Thank you for exposing George Clooney. I have despised him for a long time.


I love you.

“Predictably, there was no response by the Alamuddins to how they and their countrymen, for instance, treated the Jews of Lebanon.”

Textbook progressiveness – just go silent or whip out the well-worn race-card instead of addressing the question of facts.

DS_ROCKS! on March 20, 2014 at 9:34 pm

Say it ain’t so Mr. Wholesome.
If they’re not trying to win you over they’re trying to discredit you. They all do their Palestinian solidarity dance and for a lot of people that’s becoming a genuine multicultural experience.

Frankz on March 20, 2014 at 10:07 pm

Mr. Wholesome – Clooney that is

Frankz on March 20, 2014 at 10:11 pm

The $60,000 question is, how long will both George Clooney and his new girlfriend, Amal Alamuddin be together? Will it be, 2 years, 3 years or less then that?

BTW, Debbie, good article as usual, and it must’ve hurt and been a little annoying to put up with the Alamuddin’s cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy when you were at their wedding ceremony and reception many years ago!

Sean R. on March 20, 2014 at 10:31 pm

Not only are Druze “allowed” to serve in the IDF, many have reached high ranks. The Consul general in Atlanta when I lived there in the 80’s was a Druze and we have several MK’s who are Druze and very anti-Palistinian.

Unfortunately, the discrimination against the Sefaradim continues. I have experienced it personally and Sefaradi girls are still perceived as less moral and less religious than their Ashkenazi cousins. Ashkenazi kids are consistently forbidden from having Sefaradi playmates and if you look at advertising and other cultural symbols, they are ALL Ashkenazi types, particularly of the blond variety. Preference is still being given to Russian goyim pretending to be Jews in jobs and school placement. Sadly, a good bit of this discrimination comes from the Anglo [english speakers of all stripes] Ashkenazi community.

Meira on March 21, 2014 at 5:27 am

The worst part of this caustic piece, which exhibits the writer’s vile prejudice throughout, is the end where a woman speaks about another woman in that fashion. Shame on you.

Eimear Murphy on March 21, 2014 at 7:26 am

    Poor Eimear can’t figure out that her stupid criticism would apply more to the Mooooslima Amal than to Debbie. You know, that bit about a womon [sic] attacking another womon. What a moronic concern troll that Eimear is. She hates the Jooos as well, of course.

    skzion on March 21, 2014 at 1:44 pm

So with Muslims, as with most Blacks, you can only feel comfortable at their social gatherings if you agree with them.

Little Al on March 21, 2014 at 9:03 am

Debbie, aren’t you being a little hard on Clooney? NAH !!!

John Collignon on March 21, 2014 at 9:09 am

I’m confused.

Pray Hard on March 21, 2014 at 9:22 am

Clooney’s over 50 now. He’s better get all the young stuff he can while he can. Another few years, he won’t even care and they won’t either.

Pray Hard on March 21, 2014 at 9:32 am

    I always thought that Clooney was a bi-sexual. SO that would make that Isreal hater gal, his latest BEARD!

    One of George’s cousins in Kentucky is known to me by his nickname: “Bubba Lobba” and he used to say back in the early 1990s that,

    ” Cousin George has lots of secrets in HIS CLOSET.”

    It's me again on March 21, 2014 at 11:02 am

In any litigation, I would want you on my side.

marblenecltr on March 21, 2014 at 9:40 am

Debbie, you outdid yourself with this one????

Dina k. on March 21, 2014 at 9:50 am

Great piece, Debbie, as usual. Clearly the narcissistic Clooney is doing research for his next anti-Israel film. No one should be surprised when he drops this “resource” as soon as the script is complete.

Joan on March 21, 2014 at 10:27 am

Probably yells “allah hu akhbar!” when she orgasms….and I’m sure George loves that.

CharlesMartel on March 21, 2014 at 10:39 am

“Charp looking Peeg”….or so says my security guard Julio.

#1 VATO on March 21, 2014 at 11:16 am

Clooney needs to stick with women his own age.

john on March 21, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Oh, please. The tendency for high-status men to successfuly mate with much younger women is a process as old as the human species itself. Any competent anthropologist can tell you why. Donald Trump, Strom Thurmond and Norman Mailer are just as “guilty” as George Clooney.

    Seek on March 21, 2014 at 7:12 pm

Clooney tried throwing Israel under the bus when Israel destroyed bombs making plant in Khartoum, Sudan, addressed to Tel Aviv..he helped finance the expose….then it all went quiet…….Debbie, thanks for all you do

HK on March 21, 2014 at 3:24 pm


A friend forwarded me this link. I don’t remember you attending Darcy’s and my wedding (back in 1995), although I will give you the benefit of the doubt. I’m not going to bother responding to the bevy of misstatements, misrepresentations and outright slander of my friends and family in this article, except to point out one little error: I have only one female cousin, and her name is Lina, she lives in D.C. and she most certainly is not dating George Clooney. I don’t even know an Amal Alamuddin.)

Next time when you decide to attack George Clooney for his political views (which of course is your perogative, please stick to the facts and leave me and my family out of it.

Thanks, Sari.

[FROM DS: Sari’s memory is quite faulty on all counts. I was invited, I attended, I was there, and I know exactly what I’m talking about. I remember it as if it was yesterday. On the contrary, there is no slander, misrepresentation, or misstatement here at all. And that is exactly what troubles Sari. He and his family are extremely anti-Israel. DS ]

Sari on March 21, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    ” Iā€™m not going to bother responding to the bevy of misstatements, misrepresentations and outright slander of my friends and family in this article, except to point out one little error:”

    So, first you’re saying there’s a “bevy” of misinformation then you say there’s “…one little error.”

    Sounds to me like you “(didn’t) bother responding” because everything was spot-on.

    DS_ROCKS! on March 21, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    It’s amazing how every once in while on here a person claiming to be closely related to a story will show up and say it’s all nonsense.
    Almost like there’s people alerting them or then again maybe just one person.

    Frankz on March 23, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    Hahaha! Debbie got caught in another lie. So typical of conservatives like deb. Went to law school and now has a blog as a movie reviewer. Deb is a failure in her professional life and is clearly jealous of those who have succeeded, like Alam.

Sorry Sari, but only the best tasting tuna get to be . . .

Halalkist. LOL!!!

Seems to me as though former Army Sharpshooter DS_ROCKS! landed one right between your eyes.

You SURE you have nothing else from the menu regarding the “bevy of misstatements, etc.?”


Oh, and Sari, I’m SORRY to tell you that Debbie didn’t have to go to your wedding to hear a bevy of misstatements, misrepresentations and outright slander of Jews, but I’ll bet it helped. One can get together with friends in NYC or just ride the subways to hear things like that. I believe what Debbie said in her article, though. Nice try, but no dice.

Sari, put your sari back on, and while you’re headed off the web site, please pick up a copy of Debbie’s bio, and don’t forget to get the store card for five bottles of Coca Cola for five dollars* at Stop & Shop this week. I know our hostess is extremely displeased with the hard Halal turn they made during the Super Bowl, but I’m poor and don’t drink plain water or fruit juices. Beer’s on my menu, though.

Coke by itself or poured in to ice cream during eating is wonderful. Has caffeine, too. Will help you stay up late at night trying to figure out more lies to tell about your family tree and Islam in general. Just a “few extremists,” right? Did I get my line okay, or you want me to try it “with more feeling?” ROTFLMAO!!!

*Excluding appropriate sales tax and bottle deposit.

Debbie, thanks for the continuing education about the various tribes and sects of the Middle East.
You need a March Madness type chart to keep track of who came from who and who hates who and which group hates this group, but will join together if fighting that other group.
I know you don’t have lots of free time, but maybe just such information would be a great reference book.
Information that you take for granted, others of us out here would love to know.
I’m always impressed when you spout off that a person’s name is Sunni or Shiite or Iranian or Lebanese.

Perhaps at the wedding they weren’t “anti-Israel” but just anti occupation? I’m just saying, one can be against war and occupation and killing, without being anti-israel.

Pulica Frinaru on April 4, 2014 at 1:11 pm

Druze are not an offset of Islam. Get your facts straight please. Druz are neither Muslim or Catholic. They have their own religion, even though Druze were actually punished and forced to join Islam against their own will then eventually diverged from Islam. Their beliefs are not at all related to Islam.

Robyn on April 26, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    Very god Robyn you are 1000% right finaly some real facts but dont tell debbie she has no fuckin clue what that is…,

    Druze on April 28, 2014 at 10:47 pm

I don’t see a point in your ultimately pointless rant. People have the right to love and marry whoever they wish and it’s none of our effin business. The world would be a much happier and more peaceful place without organized religion. As Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg put it – “With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion”.

Max Frisch on April 26, 2014 at 6:40 pm

Very obscured racist article! Thank God you are not the only one who can write in English. Try in French maybe Amal Alamuddin would care more.

H Ma on April 26, 2014 at 7:35 pm

Debbie, you are just a horrible person. Why do you care that she is Anti-Israeli? Does everyone have to love Israel or they are some kind of racist or bigot? Why don’t you just mind your own business and let him marry a Muslim. Obviously he is well traveled and understand a heck of a lot more than you do about other cultures, religions, traditions! It’s called being “understanding”, something you need to learn! I lived in Dubai for a couple of years and traveled all over the Middle East. Amazing people, traditions, and culture.. Why don’t you go there and learn a thing or 2.
