The Usual Suspects (With a Twist): US Muslims Use Kosher Deli for Fraud

By Debbie Schlussel

So, three Mohammeds and an Islam start a kosher deli . . . and use it for massive tax fraud against the U.S. No, it’s not the beginning of a bad joke. It’s the beginning of a bad reality perpetrated by a ring of several Florida Muslims.

This is one of those times when Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar can leave the room, as can anyone else who still refuses to face facts.  Because this involves not just ONE guy named Mohammed–but THREE of them–and another guy named Islam . . . and a particular religion of the same name whose adherents make up a significant percentage of those involved in fraud by convenience store and gas station owners–numbers way beyond their percentage of the American population.  But, hey, I’m sure the fact that half of ’em are named Mohammed or Islam is well . . . as the French would say, Quelle Coincidence!  Right?


Three Mohammeds & an Islam Perpetrate Massive Tax Fraud

What isn’t a coincidence is that these Muslims used a kosher deli to begin perpetrating their massive fraud. (New here, but not in Israel, where Palestinian Islamic terrorists frequently dress up as Orthodox Jews to conduct terrorist attacks.)

At least eight Palm Beach County residents – including the two alleged kingpins – are among 23 people arrested this morning in a 5-county sweep of 13 South Florida convenience stores and service stations that authorities say withheld more than $1 million in sales, unemployment and corporate taxes.

Arrested were 22 owners or employees of stores, all Bangladeshi natives, as well as the operation’s Delray Beach-based accountant, according to a 131-page affidavit that details a 3-1/2 year investigation.

Agents said employees at the stores – none were in Palm Beach County – would sell taxable items but ring them up as tax-exempt, or would round totals down to even numbers.

All the arrestees were charged with racketeering and other offenses.

Mohammed Khan, 53, the alleged head of the operation, and his wife Jharna Khan, 47, were arrested at their home west of Delray Beach by Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agents and booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail, according to Mike Driscoll, resident agent in charge of the FDLE’s West Palm Beach office.

Khan’s number two man, Mansural Islam, 49 and his wife Pervin Begam, 45, were among five suburban Boca Raton residents booked into the Palm Beach County Jail.

The other three: Mohammad Abu Samad, 51, Mohammad Sohid, 39, and Rana M. Khan, 27 . . . .

According to the affidavit, filed today in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, the Florida Department of Revenue began investigating the operators in February 2007 because they consistently reported suspiciously low sales on state tax returns.

The summary says Mohammed Khan and Mansural Islam began working in South Florida convenience stores in the 1980s and, in April 1990, opened the Manzu & Khan kosher deli and market in Delray Beach.

Over the next three decades, the two and their wives set up more than 118 corporate entities to own or control convenience stores, in some case using imaginary people as partners.

In several cases, the partners would buy a store and, where possible, the land under it, and then offer to sell the business – but not the real estate — to partners or employees, even helping them with financing.

That allowed them to continue as landlords, the affidavit said.

And, it said, in many cases, the new owners were simply “straw owners” for the two heads of the operation.

“Manzu & Khan kosher deli?” Sadly, what was really coming out of there was “halal money”–Islamic money made from ripping off infidels.

Ain’t nothin’ kosher ’bout that.

Brian Kilmeade states all terrorists are Muslims and will be forced to make a retraction on Monday per FOX Senior VP.

Fox News SVP of Programming Bill Shine says Kilmeade will address the comments on Monday.
“Brian was talking about the events on ‘The View’ yesterday and was referring to the radical extremists who killed Americans on 9/11,” Shine told the Huffington Post. “Obviously, not all terrorists are Muslim and Brian will clarify this point on television and radio on Monday.”


Prince Al-Waleed demands you, Brian Kilmeade, to hand over your testicles.

CS: FYI, Bill Shine is Sean Hannity’s Best Friend, and he got Hannity that job. DS

    CS, that PAWNN for you… Brian Kilmeade is being made to acknowledge who signs his paycheck. Same reason that Bill O’Reilly hastily apologized on “The View” yesterday. When it comes to Islam, with dhimmis, money talks louder than principle.

I was looking this morning at the new Al Qaeda magazine Inspire. A slick production on behalf of evil. When you think about it, no wonder they don’t live by their own rules. And this exaggerated respect for Islam shows we won’t even call them on their own hypocrisy.

They are laughing at us while they disregard their own piety – in the South Florida case literally all the way to the bank. Ain’t nothing halal about it.

Muslims running a kosher deli. You can’t make this stuff up (Dave Barry).

Muslims break our laws because they consider their Sharia to be superior to every one else’s rules. Judaism in contrast, says the law of the land must be obeyed as long as it doesn’t contradict Jewish law – and it instructs Jews to pay for the health and welfare of a non-Jewish ruler. That is how Jews have adjusted through thousand of years to living as a minority throughout the Diaspora. In Islam, there is no such accommodation with being a minority and if there is one it is only an expedient one. In their eyes, our system of government, our laws and our freedoms are illegitimate. They do not consider themselves bound by our social compact. So why are we surprised when they engage in racketeering, tax fraud and terrorism? We shouldn’t be.

    what you said on Judaism is the exact same thing Islam says. I am a prould Muslim. I am not a terrorist. Not wveryone with a turban is a terrorist. U know that these motherfuckers who did the fraud were motherfuckers. I agree too. Understand that Muslims are regualr people believe in one GOed like jews and christians. we believe in most of the holy men as you do. also other religions do these type of things a lot. It seems like the writer specifically pin pointed Muslims. I hope you understand
    Peace of god upon you

    Saeed Ahmad on December 6, 2011 at 8:53 pm

      Mr Ahmad

      Dear Sir,
      open your Koran and cite chapter/verse teaching following
      universal prohibitions all Muslims must observe.

      1. don’t steal
      2. don’t murder
      3. don’t lie
      4. don’t kidnap
      5. don’t have sex with animals
      then positive injunctions :

      6. create courts and choose honest judges
      7. anything on animal husbandry
      8. anything on farming

      The Koran lacks basic rules needed to create
      a functioning society.

      If you don’t do well finding the basics mentioned above required to function intelligently as a society, please explain why you compare it to religions that do establish laws that promote the welfare of everyone equally based on them finding practical positive and negative teachings in their canonized books.

      Last question to you sir, name any country one earth or beyond that shouldn’t have shariah law imposed after we just pointed out the Koran is missing every basic rule needed .

      also please refrain from using profanity defending your religion

      thank you

Big deal, like this is some kind of shocking news. People of all religions and nationalities have been trying to defraud the government of tax revenue for as long as it existed. Must be a slow news day.

IGNYC on October 15, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    totally agree with u

“Bangladesh”???? What possible reason could there be for needing to import Bangladeshis in the US?

When will liberals learn that muslims are a pox on humanity. All terrorists are indeed muslims. While I will admit that not all muslims are terrorists, it is a fact that all (or just about all) terrorists are muslims. They and their religion, Islam, is equaled to the excrement from a camel’s anus. This world would be better if muslims and Islam were forever removed from the world and Mohammad, their prophet can kiss my lily white ass.

Steve S. on October 16, 2010 at 12:15 pm

These evil damn Muslims are used to living in countries without laws.

As if no one could ever figure out why foreigners have bought up all of the cash businesses? News stands, convenience stores, liqueur stores, laundromats, etc etc… has anyone been able to compare Hudson News’ bank accounts against their tax returns lately?

Doda McCheesle on October 18, 2010 at 10:20 am

You fight people who label jews for being rich and greedy like Bernie Maddoff, yet you do the same thing to Muslims.

Dont eat at the Halal cart. They might bomb your pita.

The Duckman on October 19, 2010 at 12:09 am

United States of Sharia,

You know what the reason is; We like to act as fools and think it is funny.
