All-American Terrorists: How Dearbornistan Boys Went From Football Field to Islamic Terror; TracFone Detonators & Passenger Lists

The next time you’re told that all-American Muslim boys play football and are “just like us,” think again.
Take Ali Houssaiky of Dearborn, Michigan, currently residing in a holding cell in an Ohio jail.

On the Football Field & Off:

Islamic Terrorists Osma Sabhi Abulhassan & Ali Houssaiky

In 2003, he was an Honorable Mention on the Michigan Class-A All-State Football Team. The Fordson High School Football Team he co-captained was hailed in USA Today for its observance of Ramadan fasting. In 2004, he got a full scholarship to play football at Grand Valley State University. And now in 2006, this All-American running back is a pot-smoking Islamic terrorist.
Just like us?
On Tuesday, Houssaiky, age 20, and his friend, Osma Sabhi Abulhassan (Osma is pronounced “Osama”), also 20 and also from Dearborn, were caught in Marietta, Ohio with several cellphones and about $10,000 in cash. They admitted to buying over 600 pay-as-you-go TracFone cellphones, removing the chips, and selling them to their “boss” for $5 (each) over the cost of the phones. The chips are used in bombs by Islamic terrorist groups and have been used to detonate many carbombs. And their “boss” is the subject of an open investigation by the FBI.
Washington County, Ohio Sheriff Larry Mincks–whose men arrested the two–says there are frequent visits to the area by Middle Eastern men driving rental cars usually from Michigan or Virginia, “trying to purchase as many TracFones as they can,” and shipping them to the Middle East. Now, I know why it’s so hard for me to find a TracFone. Store clerks at CVS et al say Arabs all over the Detroit area have been buying them out in bulk amounts.
Houssaiky and Abulhassan had a map with Wal-Marts that sold the phones circled all the way to North and South Carolina. And they lied to police about why they bought the phones. And they admitted to smoking pot, the least of the circumstances of concern.
Most disturbing, the two had private flight information, passenger lists and information, and other information concerning airport security checkpoints and flights in the American skies. For now, they have been charged with “money laundering to aid terrorism,” after initial arrests for obstructing official business after lying to police.
Their travel path for purchasing the phones is similar to that of convicted Hezbollah cigarette smugglers, who also traveled by vehicle from Michigan to North Carolina and back to launder money and send it to Hezbollah. But this time, it appears that more than laundering was being planned.
What were the two 20-year-old “All-American” kids going to do with the flight and passenger information? Why did they have it on their persons if they were driving, not flying? Were they planning a flight later on to another location along with the bomb-detonating cell-phone chips? Were the detonators meant for Iraq car bombs, bombs in Lebanon against Israeli soldiers, or for Americans right here on our shores?
After an arraignment hearing in an Ohio courtroom, Houssaiky shouted to reporters that he was “doing my job.” Just what was his “job”? Do Homeland Security and the FBI want to face facts that these are not the only two Muslim All-American boys raised in this country performing that “job”?
Houssaiky’s alma mater, Dearborn’s Fordson High School, is the most Muslim populated public high school in America. Hate is prevalent in the tax-funded school, and many of its students have been participating in the pro-Hezbollah rallies in town. The school is “Hezbollah High.” Did Houssaiky learn it is okay to participate in this “job” from his peers there? From his mosque? Or some other Dearbornistan institution?

Diana Houssaiky:

Whining Sister of Dearbornistan Terror Boy Ali Houssaiky

In the face of mounting evidence against her brother, Diana Houssaiky claims the arrest of her brother is discrimination because “his name is Ali and his friends name is Osma.” Actually, the discrimination is that Washington County, Ohio Deputy Sheriffs–instead of immediately cuffing the potential terrorists–gave them bottled water and let them sit in the grass to drink it.
The Houssaiky family has called the Michigan American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee to complain about the arrest and ensuing investigation. The organization, headed by “former” Islamic terrorist and FBI award revokee , is telling people “not to rush to judgment.”
600 cellphone chips. A boss under investigation by the FBI. $10,000 in cash. Passenger lists from flights and info on airport security checkpoints. Lying to police about it. They hail from Dearborn, home to thousands of Hezbollah-supporting Islamists. And we are not supposed to “rush to judgment”?
Actually, it’s proof that we’re not rushing to judgment enough in America.
And proof that playing football or being raised in America doesn’t always mean you’re “just like us.”
Sometimes it means you’re a terrorist in development.

Hmmmm….connected to the breaking news about the foiled aircraft plot(s) in England?

RogerB on August 10, 2006 at 2:12 am

On the terrorists caught in England, which terrorist group was that? I’ve heard al-Qaida mentioned, but Hezbollah has been the group doing the recent threat making.
On this topic, I hope some group is pushing to have this schools funding dropped. The idea that we Americans are funding the education of future terrorists is beyond the pale.

Bill Faith on August 10, 2006 at 5:59 am

‘600 cellphone chips’
That doesnt really prove anything. They just might be engaging in some illegal business activity.
‘A boss under investigation by the FBI’
Employees are not vicariously responsible for the activities of the employer.
‘$10,000 in cash’
‘Passenger lists from flights and info on airport security checkpoints’
This is pretty damning! unless they come up with a credible explanation on why they had the lists.

lawman on August 10, 2006 at 8:28 am

Lawman I hope you’re being sarcastic, otherwise you are a certifiable moron, and that’s being kind.

Steverino on August 10, 2006 at 9:13 am

Oops sorry Lawman, got it.

Steverino on August 10, 2006 at 9:19 am

Debbie, this is more Jihad Denial Syndrome at work. C’mon now, home-grown Muslim-American boys are NOT terrorists until they are officially credentialed. In the meantime, the Feds keep looking the other way. Mustn’t offend the delicate sensibilities of the followers of the Religion Of Peace, y’know. Even if they happen to hail from Dearborn.

NormanF on August 10, 2006 at 11:12 am

Muzlums are Muzlum firts, second, and last. They owe their allegiance ONLY to Islam, and Islam is all about conquering and annhilating every other culture but their own.
BTW, Lawman is a Muzlum. He also works for the ACLU.
“The ACLU was founded in the 1920s by Roger Baldwin and Crystal Eastman, described as a “progressive” and “the perfect feminist.”
Earl Browder was general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States from 1930 through its dissolution in 1944. When the party was reconstituted as the Communist Political Association later that year, Browder was chosen as its president. Browder proudly proclaimed that the ACLU functioned as “a transmission belt” for the party.”

Thee_Bruno on August 10, 2006 at 11:26 am

This whole issue of being too PC to target Muslim fanatics is going to kill our country. The Islamo-fascists laugh at us because we are so PC that we don’t even protect ourselves! What part of “looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck” is so hard for the pussy-liberals to understand? Answer: they don’t want to “understand”…they want America to be a big version of France…and that means we are then just around the corner from dominance by the Muslims. If you want to pray to Mecca 6 times a day…let’s keep doing what we’re doing. If you want to have your own “religion of choice”, then our leadership better pull their heads out of their collective butts and start acting IN AMERICA like we are IN the war we are IN. Debbie…you are being a true patriot for keeping the truth in front of everyone. Now we just need some real leadership…

Ziggy Spaz on August 10, 2006 at 12:07 pm

I bet someone in Hollywood right now is writing a screenplay based on this for something along the lines of “Remember the Titans” or “Friday Night Lights”.
Speaking of “Friday Night Lights”, did Debbie ever do a review of that one? I hated it. If I remember correctly it was based on a book by Molly Ivins. I think that was the only reason it was made, so liberal Hollywood could pay Molly Ivins alot of money for a crappy story.
We’ll call this as yet written one “Remember the Turbans”, and will depict Fordson High School’s transformation from a regular high school into one run under sharia. All females in burkas and forced to have clitorectomies, of course. When one of the heroes scores a touchdown, he & a couple of his teammates cut off the head of a defender, helmet still on, and spike it in the end zone instead of the ball, prompting Keith Jackson to yell “Allahu akbar!” instead of “wo, Nellie!” At halftime the band does something like “Script-Ohio”, only they spell out something in Arabic that curses their infidel opponents.
And if people don’t go to the theaters to see it, then hey, HBO will pay alot to whoever produced it so they can run it a few times every week.

CornCoLeo on August 10, 2006 at 2:33 pm

“a pot-smoking Islamic terrorist.”
Pot smoking. Oh no. Maybe they listened to Rock and/or Roll, too.

Jaime R on August 10, 2006 at 2:55 pm

I tend to agree with Lawmans points. Plenty of people engage in buying bulk cellphones — especially tracfones. just look on ebay. Most are sold in the US by the thousands per month. this is legal.
What is going on is tracfones are sold in the US at a substantial subsidy and low minute intial purchase phones are way cheaper than buying phones outright.
Tracfone works on GSM and it is easy to remove the chips, unlock the phones subisidy lock (not in itself illegal) and ship the phones for a good profit. Indeed a HUGE number of new unlocked tracphones are sold in the US on EBAY everyday for about $20 over retail. bulk buying in lots of 10 to 20k is at $25 a unit.
Looking at walmart this week they had a tracfone on sale for an unusually low $15wiht calling credits — and this phone is currently on sale on ebay for $60 new unlocked.
The chips are removed becasue they typcially have a $20 residual value IN THE US. Just look on ebay.
So yes they are used by drug dealers, terrorists etc but but 99.99% of the time this exact same scheme on a much larger order of magnitude is used in the US, stays in the US, and has nothign to do with anything criminal and is just taking advantage of a price differential caused by the phone subisisdy. In markets this is called — arbitrage.
Indeed on slickdeals and fatwallet such deals on tracfones are noted regularly some people do it with one or two phones or any othe product, but ebayers do it by the hundreds and thousands.
A $30 differential on the phone, plus $20 calling credit value on the chips (for perfecly legal uses in the US) is $50 per phone. fro the scheme it looks like the kids were getting $5 plus the cards or $25×600 units which would be $15,000 gross minus gas, minus labor and ebay fees or amaybe $3000 a piece for spending a week driving to different walmarts. this is good money but not stunning.
The cash is used to make the puchases because walmart, best buy, circuit city maintain “devil customer” lists and ebayers prefer cash so they don’t get placed on such a list and have their puchases blocked as obvious ebayers.
Just ask anyone in electronics retail. often chains will put a item on sale and the first couple of guys in in the morning might buy 100 units at a clip and drive to the next store in the chain and empty out their stock as well and so on. they then go up on ebay.
I had to laugh at the sttement by the sheriff on thephones: “They are digital and can be used to detonate car bombs.” Allphones are now digital and phones pass though amatuer buying groups by the hundreds of thousands per year.
As far as the airline information the two suspects have said the papers are old and the vehicle belonged to a relative who works for the airlines. If that is false then it is suspect. If it is true this is just a bunch of guys going after a gray market like tens of thousands of ebayers and small exporters.

FrankLev on August 10, 2006 at 8:33 pm

Ya See Frank…none of that logic will be paid attention to. If your scenario turns out to be the case it’ll be flushed down the memory hole and never mentioned again.
Like the Miami terror suspects who weren’t even Muslim. Or the credible threat of the guy who was going to take down the Brooklyn Bridge, with a blowtorch. It ruins these people’s narratives. In their minds they are brave, ever vigilant, America defending heroes instead of the seething angry cheeto stained Travis Bickles they really are, where “One day a real rain” will wash away the camel jockeys…if only they could get off the swivel chair to do so.

Jaime R on August 10, 2006 at 9:21 pm

My earlier post referencing “Friday Night Lights”. I guess I didn’t remember correctly because the book wasn’t written by Ivins. I seem to remember her doing a similiar project though in the 80’s and it being featured on 60 mins back then.

CornCoLeo on August 10, 2006 at 10:56 pm

FrankLev, why do I get the distinct impression that you are a defense lawyer?
Jaime R, do you really think that they were smoking pot? I think that was a distraction from their real mission, obtaining the chips for questionable ends. As for logic, I fail to see how your advocacy for some alternative view makes you any smarter than those law enforcement officials in Ohio. All it does is make you smart in your own eyes. The rest of us look at you as a space alien.

Loser on August 10, 2006 at 11:33 pm

Lawman and FrankLev needs to get an education in Islam. Y’all can start off by studying
These 20 year old punks had no business carrying $10,000 cash in a rental car. They obviously were not up to anything good….just some type of criminal activity. I’d like to know where they got the money along with the passenger list. The mother should be in jail also.

greenchili on August 11, 2006 at 12:46 am

“My earlier post referencing “Friday Night Lights”. I guess I didn’t remember correctly because the book wasn’t written by Ivins.”
I guess getting all your facts straight before posting isn’t exactly your bag, is it Corn?
“Lawman and FrankLev needs to get an education in Islam”
– I guess your are unable to refute their theory. The answer “Islam is evil”. You know nothing about Islam. Reading a book written by people who hate Islam telling you why you should hate Islam does not make you an expert on Islam. Look back and the Bible. Mohammed’s laws for unbelievers pale in comparison to what the Old Testament calls for.
“Jaime R, do you really think that they were smoking pot? I think that was a distraction from their real mission, obtaining the chips for questionable ends”
-I was mocking Debbie’s mention of them smoking pot. She felt it was relevant. I’m glad you see it is not.
Not a SINGLE one of you has refuted any of what Frank wrote. Will you apologize and retract when you are proven wrong? Lie, believe the lie, get proven wrong, ignore and move on to the next lie.

Jaime R on August 11, 2006 at 1:43 am

i am new to debbies sight and it is refreshing to see someone diffusing the “pc police”. In 1969 i had a room mate in ft worth tx by the name of fuad abasa we called him “fred” he was here attending flight training school at meacham field ft worth tx he and about 30 other arab etc. people. They enjoyed the nightlife our freedom etc. but they had a spiritual leader that completely controlled them. fred always had plenty of money and did not work. he told me that if he strayed from his “mission” here that the end result he and his family would die. “his mission” which he related to me in a drunken stupor one night was to learn to fly so he could help to remove israel from the face of the earth. i have been watching this “peace loving” religion now for over forty years and firmly believe they have one goal to remove any one not connected to their “peace loving” religion. to all, be vigilant, do not let the pc nuts convert you to their “religion” your heads are in the balance.

texas red on August 11, 2006 at 6:50 am

Debbie, Iam appauled by your ethnocentric comments. How dare you slanderize the city of Dearborn and the middle eastern people. What have you contributed to society with your ethnic bias? Please be more open-minded and more understanding to what is happening in the middle east. It is unfortunate that the state of Ohio portrays itself as a one with primiative mentalities dating back to the days of confederacy in the south. How many Arabs are you aquainted with? Obviously not many. I presume that you are a biggoted neo-conservative with nothing better to do than print articles which are hardly factual or intellectual in any way. You are not the next Ann Coulter and you will never be either. You are nothing more than a small town girl, writing articles for small and very narrowminded audience. By the way Iam not a Muslim, so dont think of me as a religious extremist, Iam a Orthodox Christian, born and raised in the U.S. my family is well educated and Iam pursuing a degree in Eastern Studies and Law. My goal is to educate the masses and deter them from reading unfactual bias articles such as this one. I feel sorry for your children and further generations of your supporters.

Lebanon on August 11, 2006 at 1:10 pm

They bought TracFones claiming they were for re-sale and a legitimate business… Yeh right.
I have one and and it’s a huge pain in the ass to authorize, get running, add additional minutes, etc. The coding sequence is complicated and tedious. It appears to me it’s already at a rock-bottom price-point. I bought it because it was the cheapest POS cellphone I gould get.
You can buy them on-line and get air-time cheaper than at WalMart or Target, except then you need an address for shipping…
I chose it because I hate cell-phones and I got it on-line because I saved $10. Added up that’s a lot of savings.
The reception and sound quality is poor but I don’t care, it’s only used to call my wife and tell her I’m coming back from the shooting-range or dirt-bike riding. Since she hates phones too I’m usually just calling our damn answering machine.
I don’t see how anybody could make money off them legitimately, even if you send them back to Pakistan – but evidently they’re easy to hack and re-program the EPROM, or just yank the chip and use it for a detonator.

DirtCrashr on August 11, 2006 at 1:26 pm

Observe what the pussy-liberals are accusing others about, and you will know what they themselves are doing. This theory works for any kool-aid drinker.

Ziggy Spaz on August 11, 2006 at 4:38 pm

I don’t understand the term “pussy liberals.” I am a combat vet and voted for Geroge Bush twice.
What I am pointing out is hundreds of white anglo saxon american kcollege kids are doing the same thing this summer. buying large quanities of tracfones for resale on campuses, gas stations etc. this is extremely popular and well known in immigrant communities and college campuses.
You need to do the purchase in cash. You remove the chips and resell the chargers.
The crime these guys commited is Zero. the evidence they are invoilved in terrorism or support of terrorism is zero.
Buying more than three tracfones on sale by going to diffeent stores is no different than buying a dozen stereos or 100 hard drives when the store says limit five per customer. it isn’t a crime, it is a violation a stores policy. you can’t even get fined.
We also know now the on kids mother works at the airport and her supevisor stated that the paperwork in the car was from a training seminar and not in the least bit classified secret or controlled.
Let’s get this straingt. A jittery cop made an understandable mistake. An incompetant prosecuter engaged in racist discrimination by charging these kids wiht a felonies whne it is evident none were committred. A few people here jumped on this as some kidn of proof.
I like Ms Schlussels site, but I wonder will she apologize when the charges are dropped and everyonelearns theactivity is indeed done by hundreds of college kids over the summer to make a couple of thousand bucks?
There are people who are threats. Most are muslems. but the converse isnt true

FrankLev on August 11, 2006 at 6:55 pm

FrankLev…sorry…wasn’t referring to you with the term “pussy liberals”. Most people who are prior-service…and especially combat vets…aren’t koolaid-drinking automatons who believe the DNC talking-points.

Ziggy Spaz on August 12, 2006 at 3:21 pm

Lol! This article is hilarious. Really, it made me chuckle a few times.
But seriously, no. No to every assumption this article has made. The author does not know these boys, in fact most people do not know them, so what gives anybody the right to assume things. More importantly, to take this incident and make generalizations about a whole entire high school is out of line and just plain old silly. “Hezbollah High”?! You have got to be kidding me. Really, if you do not have a full grasp on the story, do not bother reporting it.

AreyouSERIOUS on August 12, 2006 at 7:22 pm

Lol, how weird. Seriously.

AreyouSERIOUS on August 13, 2006 at 11:58 am

Michigan: Muslim Nation BUST

It seems three, ahem, Middle Eastern men (transaltion: Muslims) were caught in Michigan with 1,000 cell phones. Michigan home of Dearbornistan. It’s morning in America! Three Middle Eastern Men Found With 1000 Cell PhonesAround 1:00am August 11th three…

Atlas Shrugs on August 13, 2006 at 12:06 pm

Yeah well word from “the Islamic community” is
“wait til next year”-as it’s been a horrific year for Islamic athletics.These football players,the ones trying to blow all the planes up(without question-at least huge soccer fans)-and the world’s most obvious “real Moslem” and England’s second most well known athlete-after Lennox Lewis-‘Prince’Naseem Hamed,former world champ boxer,sentenced-and currently making license plates for a horrific hit and run in England.

jaywilton on August 13, 2006 at 12:27 pm

Buy High, Sell Low – that doesn’t get any traction. Most college kids I know aren’t that stupid, especially when you can by from the Internet source directly for cheaper than in stores — but *that* requires an address for shipping. There’s no financial incentive, and the quality of the product is low, thus the rock-bottom pricing.
And they don’t come with chargers, that’s an additional expense. I didn’t pay it, I bought a charger at Target.

DirtCrashr on August 13, 2006 at 11:35 pm

If you’re going to make an attempt to write an article, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.
Firstly, as a graduate of Fordson High School (2003), let me say this…WE HAD NO TERRORIST TRAINING. Are you insane?! Do you honestly think an American school would allow that?! NO! How stupid could you honestly be?! And if there was terrorist training (which there wasn’t), the staff at Fordson is predominately of NON-Arabic descent, so it was “your” people training us to be “terrorists”. Think about that now, Debbie.
Secondly, the marches you mention are NOT PRO-HEZBOLLAH MARCHES, they are PRO-LEBANON MARCHES. I should know, I live right by a main street where most of them took place. Most of the people in Dearborn are from Lebanon, and most still have family over in Lebanon (my family included). People were marching to support our families over there that are being slaugthered by the Israeli military. C’mon now…Israel BOMBED A HOPSITAL.
Thirdly, I don’t see people like you writing these hate-filled articles about AMERICAN TERRORISTS, who killed AMERICAN PEOPLE, on AMERICAN GROUND—Timothy McVeigh, Charles Manson, the Uni-Bomber, or hell, to throw a group in there, the KKK! What’s up with that! Think that your own folk can do no harm? HA.
Lastly, I am incredibly disgusted by your laziness to collect CORRECT information for your article. If you are going to write on a subject, at least be somewhat informed on whatever it is your writing! Fordson at least taught me that… Might I add, I am Lebanese, but my fiance is “white”…he is also in the United States Air Force, just so you know, he is risking his life to protect YOUR right to write this non-sensical bullshit. Think about that for a second…
Always need a scapegoat for the World’s problems, eh? It’s the Arabs’ turn….

Deana A on August 14, 2006 at 9:16 am

I’m new to this site and am admittedly a liberal, But I definitely understand why everyone would be so upset/scared about these boys and just have to say something.
We keep worrying about preserving everyone’s rights, and letting criminals slip right thru our fingers. As the 9/11 anniversary approaches, tempers run high. Truth is, some of these Middle Eastern Countries live with what we experienced on that day every day of their lives. I’m not saying that makes it okay, but thats the truth. This situation (which I believe we have made worse in the middle east and at home) has gone on too long and everyone is ready for it to be over. We don’t want another attack, and so we rush to judgement. Personally, (don’t tell the ACLU I said this because I am a card carrying member) I would rather we arrested a couple of wrong people, and found that out later, than not arrest the right people and lose more innocents.
Hey Deane, tell your fiance we said thanks. We are scared of all muslims right now, because the terrorist don’t wear signs. It is hard to identify who they are, but nationality (for the most part) and religion seems to be something these particular one’s all have in common. Nobody is saying we don’t have crazy’s in America. There are way too many terrorist of any kind out there. We have (to a certain extent) stopped the KKK from what they did to the African Ameicans in the past. McVey was tried and convicted. When we catch em, we try to take care of it so innocents don’t get hurt. Don’t see too many lynchings nowadays. As for thinking every Arab, Middle Eastern, is a terrorist, Muslim– of course not. But enough of them are to scare the crap out of us.
Lawman & FrankLev, you have valid points. Problem is, the circumstantial evidence against these boys is pretty incriminating. And, just so you know, I am in college & it is not common knowledge that Trac-fone’s are the bonanza you have indicated. Exchange students (hmmmm), drug dealers and rich white boys are the only entrepreneur’s on our campus. The theory makes sense, but buying them online would make for a better profit margin.
I hate the fact that the whole town of Dearborn is called such hateful names. It isn’t necessary & insults everyone. As for the high school. Is it a breeding ground? who knows? until someone knows for sure, you might want to remember that those children are someone’s babies, and quit calling them names.

bluegrassview on August 17, 2006 at 5:48 pm

What is Sad is that so many intelligent people become unitelligible beasts in the face of fear. So if one person or a thousand for that fact are a certain way, then that means the whole is predisposed to act and behave a certain way? I remember that line of thinking.. I read it someplace before , actually three places 1. Tuskegee Doctoras in the U.S. Army Experimenting on Black civilians and soldiers and not disclosing thier actions. IT was justified by saying “The current loving conditions and social realities of the subjects ,allow us a ltittude in such experiments and allows us anonymity of sorts in our DuckBlind obeservations” 2. a Very Werid Austrian Man with a bad hair cut said this “As a nation, we must stand up and protect our selves, these gypsies these Jews are burden and a curse to our fair country , and we must remove them or become sickened and with out a home like them” 3. A roman Senator a few centuries ago said this “They are of little consequence they, fight and squabble amongst them selves, they kill one another in this supposed religion of love” This was probably sai before he threw them into the pit with the lions, and Gladiators.
the lesson should be not to pre judge all , but look closely and observe the difference between some and another and then find someway to limit or remove them from the majority. But that would be far too easy, it’s easier to hate , and curse and claim expert and intimate knowledge on something we have no understanding of, then take broad sweeping action , then go OOOPS DID I DO that MY BAD !!! That is NOT what America is about, that is not why so many Brave Men and Women are dying and have died for. Maybe we should temper the Free Speech and PC bullcrap from both sides of the Liberal / Hardliner nonsense with some common sense, and look at what divison of purpose has done to divide and splinter Islam into what the world sees now as solely a Terroist factory, from what it was intended to be. Pick up a book turn over the soap box Read up on your opponent before you punch them in the face.
Maybe if the liberals and hardliners stopped fighting long enough you would hear the people of Middle Eastern Descent in our communities that are frustrated by the continued conflict, but are not listened to, or even considered as important by those in thier communities that weild impressive power. There lies the true problem, leaders doing what they will at the expense of those they are supposed to represent, and in doing so Besmirching those peoples names and thier good deeds.
Now is not a time for saber rattling or flag burning or stem cells or none of that, we have a country about to explode from social issues of race, of Education , of economic, and even religious strifes. That is our true enemy, We pay attention to the Skunk in the living room and don’t even notice the elephant sanding right next to us.
One last thing : The WHole TracPhone thing , FYI People in urban and rural areas that do not have good credit that need to communicate , and do not have a home phone, for whatever reason choose to use the tracphone as thier means of communications, does that then mean that all these people are involved in some sort of Criminal undertaking, just because they buy the same cheap phones as Drug dealers , and convicts and welfare cheaters. That to me seems like a broad brush in which to paint so many people. Oh and those bombs the terrorists use could be made from any radio received device, RC cars (Lets go ban TYCO) Wireless Remote controls, Garage door openers, Keyless entry fobs, You name it. Sometimes if it walks like a Duck and Quacks like a duck it could be a Platypus, or someone with a Duck toy.
May God Bless and Forgive us Our Ignorance
May GAN See in his Wisdom we are simple and see little
May Allah understand we are scared and Judge all his Children without talking to them from our hearts
May Jehovah See this and forgive us the sins of Murder.
OOO Look I just Called GOD other names, People do you think GOD is Worshipped in a VACUUM. HIS name is mighty his reach far.

DarqueM on August 28, 2006 at 5:10 pm

Yea so these two men were aquited of all charges. The flight information they had, hmm did anyone stop and realize that one of the boys mothers works for Jordanian airlines? O and off all the people smoking pot in this country you guys just have to point out these two arab men right? O no not pot!
Another point to make, I am a current student at Fordson High School and there is NO TERRORIST TRAINING WHATS SO EVER! These PRO-HEZBOLLAH MARCHES that you talk about are PRO-LEBANON MARCHES, as DirtChashr mentioned above. I also went to these marches in which arab-americans, americans, and jewish-americans all attended. So that makes every person that went to these marches/rallies a terrorist too huh? Then your calling your own jewish peers terrorists as well and every american/person who opposed the war.
Debbie your the terrorist, and all you do is sit behind your desk and make type these articles about us being terrorists right?

O and you call Diana Houssaiky a whiner huh? Sorry that she defends her innocent brother. Your the whiner.

Zeina on December 22, 2006 at 9:41 pm

I just wanted to say that you are afraid of what you dont know. You cant call people anything when you dont even know them. The fact that you jump to conclusions and write things such as hezbolla high really makes you look like an insecure,immature person who just wants attention. You are probably a weak person who is easily affected by propaganda. To tell you the truth, what most people say like you usually doesnt affect the muslims it probably makes them laugh at how small people can be. Thanks for your time.

These guys had all charges against them dropped. You should be sued for this article full of lies.
No group of people on this earth are bigger whiners than Jews. And the mother of all terrorists can be found in one counrty ONLY – Israel.

Debbie, are you being serious? Get your facts straight before you bash our city. I graduated from Dearborn High School, and was trained to hate Fordson because they were our rival. I hail from this town, I don’t even like Fordson, and I am still appalled by your comments. “Hezbollah High??” Are you kidding me!! Most of the staff there is white. Are we the ones training them to be “terrorists?” There is no pro-hezbollah anything there. There is the annual Arab-American festival and various other ethnic related festivals that take place. Oh, and sorry, but there are barely any people here that hail from Afghanistan, so if you’re going to make a half-ass attempt to slander my hometown, you could have at least called it something more appropriate to the population like Dearbornanon. Thanks.

uhmm first off, i don’t know why the author
kept repeating “just like us”
when no one really wants to be like
“us”. please if anything “us” is worse than what
you guys are assuming and accusing these two
gentlemen of, when there is absolutely no
evidence of the authors accusations. and yeah
you guys are all discriminators, i can bet a million dollars that if these two gentlemen names weren’t ali and osma, then there would be no thoughts of terrorism in this situation. so if you decide you want to be racist just like the author is and anyone who goes along with this article, then keep your bullshit to yourself, because no one else really wants to hear it !! and on top of that, most of Dearborn is Muslim, whats your point ?? when you come up with one, let me know, cause I’d love to hear all your thoughts and racist bias and comments on Muslim. and fordson high school is a better high school than the one you went to, and thats a fact. this article is freaking hilarious, you don’t understand how much humor is in this article, as you can see everyone else doesn’t agree with this bullshit article, so when you decide to make up another fake article on Muslims and terrorism, don’t post it up, cause the only thing your going to be receiving is comments on how ridiculous and humorous you sound.!!

and honestly, let me tell you something debbie.
your full of bullshitt, how the hell are you going to sit here and talk about his sister being a whinner, when in deed your the one whinning about this humorous situation. “Hezbolla High”, are you joking rigiht now !!?? maybe i should just call the school you went to “White bOy SChool” or “the school of Discriminating Bullshitter” as you have your opinion, everyone else does. and again you need to get your shit straight before you make any assumptions or accusations on Muslims and sit here and waste your life writing a bullshitt article. wow there are so many things i wat to say to you right now, but then again im not going to snoop down to the level you went at to write this article. your the whinner, your the terrorist, your everything you wrote about in this article. so go back to talking about your own people, and leave Muslims the hell alone.
my email:
–need anything, let me now

DontWorryAboutIt on June 20, 2008 at 12:20 pm

That is a very interesting point! And a very creative way to put it. Thank you for the thought provoking article.

Dear author,

You are SO ignorant and full of shit. Go read a book about Islam or talk to a Muslim person before writing such judgemental things.

Talk about full of shit, anonymous, YOU are.

Islam is a religion of peace like I am queen

Try going to Pakistan or Egypt and practice
Christianity. Say good bye to your life after the
Animal muslims rape your wife and daughter
And then kill them while you watch.

Yes, they do that you idiot. You’re a dumbass
That really needs to learn to talk out of your
Mouth instead of your ass

All Muslims are terrorists. Everybody with a brain knows that.

This lady is plain STUPID.

John on May 24, 2011 at 4:53 am

I live in Dearborn, and honestly, I have not met 1 Muslim who wanted to hurt America or it’s people.

EJT on May 26, 2011 at 10:28 am

all i wanna say is believe watever u want to believe, diana and your followers, but in the end who’s right and who prevails? YOU even know the answer that is muslims, and the american people who love them, and arabs. you guys do an amazing job at making people hate you and you pass at making up lies, too. when will you realize how stupid you’re making yourself look? DEBBIE SHIT-HEAD is the racist, not the muslims or arabs. and for some reason, you forget to mention that some americans are muslims. Hmmm, how about that?!? well, have a nice life you discriminating asshole.

diana on July 9, 2011 at 5:41 pm

Just because you are Paranoid it does not mean that someone “is not out to get you”

Robert Mclean on August 4, 2011 at 7:56 am

so… yeah… u wanna maybe follow this up with an apology to these innocent boys? and how dare the sister whine, right? unbelievable…

so.... on September 27, 2011 at 6:31 pm

All American muslims. Three stages of Jihad. 1. Win Muslims are outnumbered they will preach tolerates and peace. 2. When there are a enough Muslims and resoures their tune chances koran 22:39-40. 3. Engage in offensive Jihad surah 9:29. Muslims create problmes than paly victims and divert the attention to other people. if you think. muslims will moan phobia. That is propaganda or a smoke screen for sympathy to divert. people from looking at the real culprits. Muslims.

Hey Dave, This is a ptrety smart way of handling the problem at hand. I’ve been trying to apply this technique to a jQuery slideshow instead of a single image though. Basically have five images inside a single ‘slides’ div which cycles through the images. I tried keeping the markup semantic as I could and applying this technique to the ‘slides’ div, with no luck. I also played around with adding an extra ‘slides-img’ div around each of the five images and still couldn’t get that to work. Any thoughts on the subject? I’ve been trying everything I can think of over the last few days. Any comments or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, -TM
