Me on ABC Family/TBN/Christian Broadcast Net, Today (Various Times)–Abu Moskowitz/Roberts/Murphy Update
By Debbie Schlussel
Inspired by my research into extremist Muslim cleric, Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi, an agent of the government of Iran and the Hezbollah terrorist group, my friend, Erick Stakelbeck–Christian Broadcast Network’s (CBN) outstanding terrorism analyst and correspondent–came to Detroit a month ago to do a story on Mr. Elahi and why all the top feds in town kowtowed to Elahi at his mosque–as I detailed here. I was interviewed for the story, which Erick saw on Jihad Watch.
The story airs repeatedly today on the ABC Family Channel at 11:00 p.m. Eastern (runs twice–check local listings), CBN’s “700 Club” (listings here), and TBN. You can also view it online at CBN’s site (click on “700 Club”) , (the segment comes on about 10 minutes in; first, there is also a promo for Billy Ray Cyrus (from mullets to Muslims)). Read the script, here.
Strangely, the feds either wimped out of talking to Stakelbeck or set very strange conditions for interviews. Take Brian Moskowitz, a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz”, the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) Special Agent in Charge for Michigan and Ohio. He was at the Hezbollah Mosque feting Elahi, but he refused to do an interview about it with Stakelbeck–hemming, hawing, and stuttering about it and making all kinds of excuses about how he doesn’t judge people’s points of view and needs to do outreach. Since he doesn’t judge, we suggest he next do outreach to David Duke and the Klan. It’s not nice to judge.
Abu Moskowitz pimped his colleagues, U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III, the Justice Department’s top official in Detroit, and Daniel Roberts, FBI Special Agent in Charge for Michigan–saying that he should interview them instead. They, too, were at the radical Muslim pander-fest.
Abu Murphy’s press person, Gina Balaya, and Abu Murphy’s other personnel refused to return Stakelbeck’s phone calls.
Then there’s Abu Roberts, who heads the FBI here in the heart of Islamic America (Michigan). His press person, Special Agent Dawn Clenney, told Stakelbeck they’d only grant him an interview, if Elahi was not mentioned specifically and no questions were asked about him. Yet, off-camera, Roberts consistently praised Elahi, and said he had to meet with him because “he knows a lot of people and has a lot of followers.” Again, David Duke knows more people and has a lot more followers. So we look forward to covering Roberts’ meeting with Duke.
Shame on Nolan Finley, Detroit News editorial page editor, who hired Elahi to spew his pro-terror hate as a regular Detroit News columnist. For this, Finley gets a Schlussel Jihad Journalism Award, for helping the forces of hate get respect, legitimacy, and exposure for their extremist views. Abu Finley gave the same absurd, phony asnwers as Roberts et al. Where’s David Duke’s Detroit News column?
Imam Elahi should be deported. He became a U.S. citizen under false pretenses. He was sent here by the government of Iran and Hezbollah to radicalize Shi’ite mosques, and he succeeded. It’s time to strip this evil man of his citizenship and deport him. But, unfortunately, the men in charge of doing this are–you guessed it–Abu Moskowitz and Abu Murphy.
Who’s watching the watchers while they party with Hezbollah and Iran’s U.S. agent?
Watch Erick Stakelbeck’s report tonight.
