Does Your Local Bank Have a Muslim, er . . . “Arab Affairs Manager”?

By Debbie Schlussel

I probably shouldn’t have used the term “local” in the title of this post, since there really aren’t many local banks anymore.  But there are, in fact, plenty of national ones that pander to shakedowns by ethnic minorities.


Sadly, Comerica Bank is one of those.  Comerica has a specific department catering to Muslims, and it’s headed by an extremist.  Amal Berry-Brown is Vice President and National Arab and Chaldean Affairs Manager for Comerica Bank.  I’m not sure why a bank would need one of those, other than to placate minorities interested in a shakedown.  I checked, and Comerica doesn’t have an Italian Affairs Vice President and Manager, nor an Irish Affairs Vice President and Manager, nor one for any other ethnic group.  And to be honest, Berry-Brown is really the Vice President for Muslim Affairs at the bank.  Her title is just a euphemism for that.  Does your bank have a VP for Catholic or Evangelical or Jewish or Hindu affairs?  Not likely.

This is a sop to groups like CAIR, which was involved in a lawsuit against Comerica for pretending it was going to try to close the bank account of LIFE for Relief and Development, a Muslim charity that funds HAMAS and Al-Qaeda.  It’s also a sop to them because CAIR and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad and his ADC (the Muslim dominated Arab group) boycotted Comerica for sponsoring a Friends of the Israel Defense Forces dinner.

Ms. Berry-Brown is a devout Muslim, anti-Israel and an extremist, whose family back in Lebanon is in the highest echelons of Hezbollah.  Given that, it’s no surprise that she is a strong supporter of sharia banking and is pushing it on Comerica.  Gee, I wonder how many Chaldeans (Iraqi Christians), whose “affairs” she’s also supposed to be manager of at the bank, support this Islamic banking idea.  Not many, I’d bet. Some of her past statements have included this:

Sharia banking is an idea “that is long overdue in this country. At the same time, there really is quite a bit of work to be done.”

Berry-Brown is on the board of ACCESS–the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services–the Muslim-dominated welfare agency that committed Medicaid fraud, providing fake social security numbers and shelter to thousands of pregnant Muslim aliens, so they could have their kids here (and obtain U.S. citizenship for them), courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.  ACCESS is also an open supporter of Hezbollah, HAMAS, etc., and helps illegal aliens get into and remain in the U.S.  Yup, that’s what Comerica’s VP of Islamic Affairs (as her title should really read) stands for. (Berry-Brown’s dhimmi husband is an obese Irish Catholic American engineer who has agreed to raise their kids Muslim. Whipped to the nth.)

Find out what your bank is doing to appease Islamic minorities and engage in sharia banking.  I know I won’t be banking at Comerica any time soon.

It is so wonderful to have race or religious based banking. It is the return of segregation.

Worry01 on March 15, 2010 at 3:37 pm

I’ve noticed almost all the Wachovia branches in Northern Virginia are staffed by Muslims.

JM on March 15, 2010 at 3:49 pm

How ironic that you note this outrage! Perhaps Comerica has a new jihadi partnership going. Comerica called my commerical building mortgage loan in the crummy economy last year, despite all payments having been made on time for several years–I could not refi under the cricumstances –and they sold the building in a fire sale to muslim named Mo (despite having other offers)–now they are demanding me to pay for an inflated shortfall on the math!!

I don’t have the cash to fight these guys legally, but I am glad you are letting people know what they are doing. Yes, let’s go muslim in Comerica–your local bank of the jihad.

This is nauseating.

DS_ROCKS! on March 15, 2010 at 4:49 pm

Koran prohibits collecting interest on loans.
Why would any bank want their business?
It’s against their religion to pay interest !

William on March 15, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    IS it NOT written in scripture that any & all interest is usury?
    So is it NOT usury for Hebrews and Christians too, regardless of what is written in the Koran?

    Who cares? on March 16, 2010 at 5:44 pm

And of course the other customers will be paying higher bank fees to support this lunacy.

[Find out what your bank is doing to appease Islamic minorities and engage in sharia banking.]

It is my understanding that to be Sharia compliant the financial institution must give “Zakat” (A word that I believe is based on the Hebrew Tzedaka that many translate as Charity although it really means more than that) to an approved organization.

Those individuals who decide what is approved for “Zakat” have approved many terrorist front groups. In fact CAIR, the leading public Islamic terrorist organization boasts they are approved for Zakat.

Is this legal??? Why should banks have separate Muslims depts when they don’t have Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Buddhists or atheists?

bejenin on March 15, 2010 at 7:32 pm

So the Chaldeans are the beard for this operation?

KingSlav on March 15, 2010 at 8:13 pm

Not long before they put Muslim prayer rugs in each bank….maybe a pic of Nasrallah as well…, maybe a contest to win free a trip to the Haj,,,,etc, etc.

Not Ovenready on March 15, 2010 at 9:20 pm

why would they use a woman since she has no opinion or rights in islam. (except to breed more bombers)

ender on March 15, 2010 at 9:21 pm

The muslim mortgages have no legal”teeth” for the banks. Borrowers are only responsible to opay based on their muslim oath. How do shareholders in the bank feel about that?

If they are permitted to lie to non-muslims, can they also cheat us?

Marilyn on March 15, 2010 at 9:32 pm

Debbie- thank you for all of the hard work that you do. I can’t imagine how exhaustive and time-consuming it must be to track down and bring to light the dark underside of these truths.
That you’re courageous and blunt in presenting them makes your efforts all the more commendable.

Jason on March 15, 2010 at 10:07 pm

As Benejin’s post asked, is such a thing even legal in America?! Maybe some conservative organization should do a reverse ACLU and take the whole matter to the Supreme Court.

To be sure, your website gives me the impression of being over the top. Either an anti-Muslim hate-fest, or coming close. If someone dared go on like you do against Jews or African-Americans, their life would be made hell.

But I still read it to learn how others think. As an Indian-American, I would actually protest if a bank openly did the same thing using Indians or Hindus. I resent any attempt needlessly to separate me from the rest of the American people.

But you only seem to post complaints about Muslims. Do you believe there’s no such thing as a positive Muslim? I’d like to know your opinion of Anwar Sadat.

Vivek Golikeri on March 15, 2010 at 10:09 pm

Did you know that Comerica Bank got bailed out to the tune of $2.25 billion?

Jarhead on March 15, 2010 at 11:04 pm

I can answer Viveks question. 1. Yes ( there is no such thing as a positive muslim.)

This is right in line with all of the SVP – Diversity positions, and the SVP – Community Relations, etc. I’ve been in banking for over 30 years and I have been sick to death of all the “special programs” banks are required to provide for “minority” customers – except the only minority customers who need apply are black. Now they’re giving the sop to the Muslims, who probably learned from their black brothers before them that the way to get this kind of special treatment is to file BS class-action lawsuits against enough big banks that the courts and then the government will require the banks to set aside millions of dollars earmarked to be handed out to the special interests.

I’m still waiting for the SVP – Middle-Aged-Norwegian-Women position to be posted…

I hope that everyone who reads this realizes that you’re reading for an extreme racist author who has a professional degree in creating lies about Arabs and Muslims. She probably forgot that Michigan, where she received her education at, has 1.4 Million residents in the SE Michigan area of Arabic descent. These people contributed to the economical booming for the state over a full century in the fields of engineering, medicine, and industry.

I would suggest for D Schlussel to relax and drink a cup of coffee (from Caribou if you like). Hopefully she’ll wake up off her imaginations.

GA on April 24, 2010 at 9:42 am

The article is wrong at so many levels:

1. Claims her family to be in the “high echelons” of Hizbullah – but gives no proof? Why should we believe you?

2. The woman is married to an “obese Irish Catholic”! Muslim women are NOT allowed to married non-Muslim men. So if she did, she is not religious and certainly not extremist.

3. She does not cover. How does that make her an extremist? Oh I forgot, what is the definition of extremism here?

She promotes Shariah banking – what is wrong in that? All major banks in the world are promoting this – Citi, HSBC etc. There is a large population of people who do not want to deal with interests so they deal with interest-free banking – which by the way, only means that the bank mostly invests their funds in “commodities” instead of money lending or other interest bearing activities – but of course there is no such thing as a completely interest free bank.

D. Schlussel, it’s good to be passionate about your causes but it’s also good to be a little more open to people, counter check your own thoughts – and may be contribute to making the world a better place. You are equivalent of Muslim fanatics who encourage kids to go on suicide bombing and hate all western people.

Alex on July 21, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    I agree, this woman has no morals or respect for herself. She also sleeps with married men. I know this to be fact because she slept with my husband..add home wrecker to her list of good deeds..

    Hester prynne on June 28, 2011 at 11:17 pm

Oh and despite my comment above, I must say, you are a very pretty woman! 🙂

Alex on July 21, 2010 at 3:20 pm

This article is very accurate. I have worked through other organizations here in Detroit with Comerica and some of the mentioned charities. This is all very true. Do not forget that other companies like DTE Energy had the first Arab Community relations manager and Comerica copied from them.

Don Dulah on August 23, 2010 at 7:55 am

She may be married but not for much longer if she keeps sleeping with married men. How much more can her catholic husband take. No one who claims to be religious would dishonor their vows and disgrace there own faith. How do you sleep at night knowing you lied and chatted for months? I wouldn’t want to walk a day in your shoes.

Scarlet on June 28, 2011 at 11:30 pm

Does your family know yet. Cheater

Scarlet on June 28, 2011 at 11:32 pm

She goes after successful men oh and married men she likes best. Sleeping with other women’s husbands is going to catch up with you some day…karma…

Miranda on June 28, 2011 at 11:35 pm

How do you look at your husband knowing you slept with mind. I wouldn’t want to be you. Muslim woman cover not cheat when they have a husband and kids, are you proud you wrecked my family and my kids no longer see there dad as a hero but. Cheater. Hopefully you want better for your daughter.
