Reuters Quotes Schlussel on Obama’s, Cops’ Islamic “Outreach” & Homegrown Terrorists

By Debbie Schlussel

You’ve probably read about Barack Obama’s allegedly “stepped-up” outreach to Muslims in America (and elsewhere).  So far, it’s no different than Bush’s disgusting Islamo-pandering, and it’s just as bad.  It’s something I’ve been upset about since Bush’s first run for President when his ass-kissing was so fierce, he beat out Al Gore for the Islamic endorsement (which didn’t help him much at all).  And now, of course, it’s just as execrable coming from Obama.  Also, as you probably know, federal and local law enforcement are also doing the uber wet butt-kiss to Islam (when they should be doing a Butkus tackle on Islam).



So, recently, Reuters interviewed me on the topic for it’s “Special Report: U.S. Shifts Gears to Tackle Homespun Terrorism.”  And here’s a tiny chunk of what I said, as the only non-Muslim and non-appeasement proponent:

“Outreach is a joke,” said conservative commentator Debbie Schlussel, who advocates being tough on mosques and immigration. “Muslims don’t respect people who kowtow to them. I think they respect those whom they fear.”

I don’t recall adding the “I think” part. Because it’s not an “I think” kind of thing. It’s fact to anyone who knows anything about the Arab and Islamic worlds.

“Outreach” is baloney.  There’s no point in it, other than to alert Muslims that you’re weak and will do anything to get them to pretend to like you.  While you’re removing your shoes at the door and eating greasy, fried falafel, they’re laughing at you, and getting emboldened. They respect those whom they fear. Not those whose endless fawning seeks to empower Muslims at the West’s expense. Been saying this for over a decade, since well before 9/11.

And that goes to the point of one of the others quoted in the article, Imam Husham Al-Husainy.  You’ll remember him.  He’s the one I first wrote about here on this site and in a New York Post column (then others jumped on the bandwagon and ripped it off – that’s you, Sean Vannity) after I risked my life going undercover to the indoor Hezbollah rallies he organized.  The guy is an agent of Iran, to which he regularly travels, switching planes in London.  His 16-year-old son usually follows him to Iran a few days later.  So it’s interesting that Al-Husainy whines about being held up at the U.S.-Canada border and how he worries for his son.

Well, if we had any guts, instead of pandering to them, we’d have stripped Al-Husainy of his citizenship and deported him or locked him up for the multi-million dollar terrorism money-laundering ring in which he and his mosque are involved and which was initially under investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), but lazy ICE superiors–especially Michigan/Ohio Special Agent in Charge Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz”–dropped the ball.  I know because I was initially an informant consulted in the case.

But instead, he’s operating as usual, and we’re kissing his ass.  First, Bush kissed his ass, then Bush”s Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff kissed his ass, and then Obama’s CIA Director Leon Panetta kissed his ass.  Like I said, “Outreach is a joke.”  Period.

And I probably made a mistake even mentioning Al-Husainy (not his real name, by the way) to the Reuters reporter.  Because, then, instead of mentioning this stuff in his story, he did his own “outreach” to Al-Husainy, and we got his “woe is Muslim me” BS.

And then there was the obligatory repeat of myths long ago busted.  Sadly, they are uttered by a guy I’d previously admired, Clark Kent Irvin (the first Inspector General of Homeland Security), who I thought got it.  I guess not.

He said that common factors that contribute to leading impressionable minds down the path to violence are: a lack of economic opportunity; a limited education; strained family ties; a sense of impotence; alienation and grievance, plus a desire to be a part of something big and noble.

PUH-LEEZE. This didn’t fit Nidal Malik Hasan, a doctor, or Houssein Zorkot, a then-medical student. It didn’t fit the Washington, DC area dental student and the other very educated, middle-class American Muslim men, all five of whom are being held in Pakistan.

No, Mr. Irvin, there are only two factors that contribute to violence from impressionable minds: Islam and hatred. Oh wait, that’s really only one factor.

And, of course, there are the usual excuses for the Obama-niks:

Obama and Napolitano came under fire for their handling of the failed December 25 bomb attempt, which fueled Republican criticism that the president is weak on national security.

The expected reaction from the right, some say, has made the Obama administration nervous.

“The DHS is very, very skittish about outreach,” said a former government counterterrorism official who spoke on condition of anonymity. “They are being overly tentative because there are plenty of people on the right who want to portray the Obama administration as soft on terror.”

Uh, no-one needs to portray them as soft on terror. They are doing a pretty good job of demonstrating it all on their own. Just as Bush did. New Boss same as the Old Boss.

Don’t Get Fooled Again.

Bush never bowed to muslims prince, Bush called them what they are TERRORIST, Islam/muslims is NOT a religion they are a cult and they should be outlawed as a cult. They are very dangerous to every living being in the world including themselves. They begin to teach little boys age 7 to 9 to behead someone by giving them a large knife drugging a living man holding the man down to let the little boy hack away at his neck until he is beheaded then the little boy holds up the head by its hair to PROUDLY display his trophy. THIS CULT NEEDS TO BE OUTLAWED AROUND THE WORLD.

G: Perhaps you are talking about your fantasy Bush. Definitely not the real Bush who did none of what you claim and everything I detailed and documented. Wow, someone needs to return to reality and take a refresher course, including this:

      SG, well done, and how revolting. Bush certainly paved the way for bowing, didn’t he?

      Dernon Ruton on April 21, 2010 at 7:15 am

        Wrong. It started with W.J. Clinton’s shaking hands with Yasser Arafat in the 1990s, not to mention – of course – Jimmy Carter, who has proven himself to be an all-around idiot, anti-Semite and HAMAS symapthazier.

        M: Uh, actually, if you’re gonna be such a stickler, it started with Bush I as CIA Director pandering to the Arab world and giving them anti-Israel intelligence. And Ronald Reagan stepped it up by giving away a slot on our space shuttle to the incompetent Saudi Prince. I know you like to be a partisan and blame these things on Dems, but Republicans had their fair share of amping things up in Islamo-butt-snorkeling. The sooner you wake up to that, the better off America will be. DS

    This Bush?

    You’ll have to read past the headline to get to the mention of Bush.

    I’ve said this before:

    In my opinion, until now, US presidents (Bush father & son included) have befriended the Arabs to a measurable extent for self-served interests.

    In contrast, Obama tries to befriend them for the commonality he views himself as sharing with them.

Bush called Islam the “Religion Of Peace” and sought to convince Americans after 9/11 that Al Qaeda had “hijacked” it, as if we know of any other kind. His Homeland Security Department implemented the politically correct screening policies at our airports that made sure Muslims were not given the due extra scrutiny they deserved. Various advisers conducted “outreach” to the Muslim World in search of the fabled, non-existent “moderate” Muslim. Yes, with Dalia Mogahed and his own crew, Obama is just giving his own spin on the above Bush Era policies. Which goes on to show that brown-nosing Islam crosses ideological divides and party lines. Few Americans know of the danger that Islam presents to the country. Debbie has encountered grief for her views from both the Left and the Right. The truth is that America is not yet ready to get tough on those bent on bringing jihad and mass murder to our shores – and on those already here who have perpetrated it.

The more things change…

[Debbie – New Boss same as the Old Boss.]

I disagree. While the Bush administration never actually tried to hide they were doing this Obama and his administration has been a lot more open about this both before and after the election.

I_AM_ME on April 21, 2010 at 8:17 am

I’m guessing that “outreach” equals vastly increasing the number of Muslims allowed to immigrate to America and placing them into powerful positions in government using affirmative action. If we are constantly attacked by the “religion of peace,” then we need more of them on our shores for more “outreach.” If Muslims are slaughtering soldiers on our military bases, then we need more Muslims in our army for more “outreach.” Muslims must be laughing at how easy the jihad is against Americans.

Well said, Ms. Schlussel.

Obama’s “outreach” to all comers under the green banner of Islam may vary between the mawkish and the disgusting, but “outreach” by the CIA, for example, is downright scary. Check out all kinds of Arabic-language newspapers printed in Dearbornistan & elsewhere, and. like as not, you’ll see a full-page English-language recruitment ad inside the back page.

Debbie, instead of your “Don’t Get Fooled Again” line, how about this one:

” fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” (Courtesy of W)

It was somewhat “refreshing” to hear CNN get a muslim nut on the streets of NYC to admit he believes 911 was “justified” and openly state that “the koran clearly calls for muslims to TERRORIZE disbelievers as a command from allah.”


The story was in relation to the South Park Story threat warnings, which Debbie posted about yesterday. Apparently this rag-head missed the taqiya lessons at the mosque. (No, I don’t usually watch CNN).

BB on April 21, 2010 at 12:37 pm

W.R.Fawn writes, “Check out all kinds of Arabic-language newspapers printed in Dearbornistan & elsewhere, and. like as not, you’ll see a full-page English-language recruitment ad inside the back page.”

Today’s CIA verges on clueless, as they, DHS and the FBI recruit among the Muslim communities of the US. By way of contrast, when almost 30 years ago I was under consideration as an intelligence analyst with one of those three-letter agencies, someone doing a background check in my old neighborhood asked one neighbor if he thought I might be a “Zionist”. I suspect today it’s easier for a Muslim to get such a posting than a Jew.

To the individual who commented on CNN piece and the South Park episode which insulted Mo…The CNN reporter immediately aired a snippet from Jeffrey Toobin (CNN’s lawyer commentator) who immediately assured everyone that having a website posting the picture of the South Park episode, followed by a picture of a dead person (I believe it was a picture of the murdered Theo Van Gogh) — is unproblematic. Toobin supported the website saying that it’s perfectly within the paramaters of Free Speech. Thus, according to Toobin, showing visual threats is “protected speech” under US law. (Frankly, I have to laugh — this is the same CNN which has been going ballistic about “Rightwing militias” in the U.S. — virtually every single day, for at least 20 – 30 times per day, there’s a “news” item on “rightwing militias.” I don’t live in the States (but I suspect it’s CNN’s political “outreach” to the Obama administration.) I recall CNN had a freak out about some “right-winger” yakking about “them Green Helmet guys” (I think the “right winger” may have been referring to UN people?) invading America…and how one needs to protect oneself against some “New World Order”, etc. (Personally, I could hear no actual “threat” of violence, and I thought it was well within Free Speech limits), but the CNN people were all hot and sweaty and outraged, etc. It’s just the usual CNN double standard. One for Muslim extremists, yet another for “right-wingers.”

J.S. on April 21, 2010 at 2:40 pm

I’m not promoting CNN here in my above post–just pointing out that they had this muslim on the street (present tense) who is explaining that muslims are duty bound by the koran to be terrorists. It’s somewhat shocking for me to see–because USUALLY they will say “that terrorist action is all against the koran–that 95% of muslims disown such conduct” sort of BS.

I know that CNN is usually part of the problem as you note here. Yet in this one case, it seems some truth got through.

BB on April 21, 2010 at 5:49 pm

As I recall, Bush originally said we’re going on a “Crusade” against Islamic extremism. I thought, […yeah, ok- King George the Lionheart!] Then, the PC police went to work, reminding him of history and its implications of the term Crusade. Then he punked out.

Patrick on April 21, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Excellent post, Debbie. Congratulations on your being mentioned in Reuters, even if you were slightly misquoted by them, “I think”. ‘)

I voted for Bush, and there are some things about his Presidency that were good, and some that were disappointing. Bush’s Islamo-pandering, undisputingly falls in the latter category. George W. Bush deserves all the criticisms that are being made of him in this thread. The photos of George W. Bush kissing Saudi King Abdullah, provided via links by both Debbie and Shy Guy, both at 6:21 am post above, are sickening. A warning should have been posted about its nauseating nature. George H. W. Bush was even worse, and please, don’t get me started on Clinton and Obama.

JeffE on April 22, 2010 at 1:09 am

The thing at the end of my first paragraph should have been a wink.

JeffE on April 22, 2010 at 1:11 am

You dicks. This whole Islamic terrorist vipers nest was stirred up by US foreign policy treating people of other nationalities like 2nd class citizens in their own countries. Supporting corrupt dictators, financing civil wars and insurgencies to further the US interests overseas. Reap what you sow, fools. 90% of the non Americans I speak to find your current predicament and hysteria hilarious – enjoy the slide into irrelevant mediocrity or start WW3 – those are your real choices…
