Who is Mario Fundarski?: Anti-Semitic Nazi Flag-Flyer Was Muslim-Endorsed Candidate; Dearbornistan Hts. Hezbollah Judge to Decide Case

By Debbie Schlussel
For the past couple of months, people all over the Dearbornistan area have been asking me about Mario Fundarski and the anti-Semitic Swastika/Israeli flag (and Saudi, Lebanese, and Palestinian flags) and banner high atop his house, visible from one of the Detroit area’s major thoroughfares, Telegraph Road (near the intersection with Van Born Road).
I’ve seen the flags for myself, as it was not far from my late father’s office, which I spent the last four months cleaning out.


Watch the Video to get the “full picture”:

The flags have also been the subject of several news stories on Detroit local TV. They try to portray Fundarski as a nut, but he is anything but. Neo-nazi groups are posting pics and videos (including the one above) of Fundarski’s banners and flags all over the net. And, likewise, the other new Nazis–the Muslim and Muslim Arab communities–take him seriously as an ally, so we all must take him very seriously as an enemy.



I’ve been on the trail of Mr. Fundarski for over a decade, as he’s lived in each of the Detroit area’s three counties and run for office (and lost) from each of the communities in which he’s lived (and he once came up to me at a Jewish community event and tried to shake my hand and harass me). Each time his literature was not just about Israel and “Palestine,” it was blatantly anti-Semitic. His literature spoke of how we must “stop the Jews” and their political influence. That openly anti-Semitic statement when he ran for Congress was so appealing to Arab Muslims in town–who claim they are “not anti-Semitic, just anti-Israel”–that they endorsed him for office.
Fundarski was endorsed by the Muslim-dominated Arab American Political Action Committee (AAPAC), of which the most prominent of 11 members include “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad, Wayne County Prosecutor Abed Hammoud, Arab-American News editor and publisher Osama Siblani, convicted felon Neal AbuNab a/k/a Nael AbuNab, and Holocaust-denier Lola Elzein (who threatened to rape, torture, and kill me, my parents, and granparents). All are open supporters of Hezbollah and HAMAS.
Although no-one can stop Fundarski on this due to free speech laws (the First Amendment), the City of Dearbornistan Heights has cited him on violations of city ordinances regarding signs and banners only because neighbors have complained about the eyesore.
This is, after all, Dearbornistan Heights–home to the second most concentrated population of Lebanese Shi’ites and Hezbollah supporters outside of the Middle East, so the content really wouldn’t offend too many there.
And whaddya know?–Fundarski lucked out in drawing the Hezbollah Judge–David Turfe–to hear his case. As I’ve noted Turfe is a Hezbollah supporter and I watched him campaign at a Hezbollah rally in summer 2006 at the Bint Jebail Cultural Center, named for Hezbollah’s South Lebanese stronghold. At the rally, his father, Hajj Mohammed Turfe, Founding Chairman of the center, which is known as the “Hezbollah Social Club”

gleefully and repeatedly spoke of how “only a few thousand Jews will survive Armageddon.” This mantra, repeated often throughout the event, got raucous, deafening applause and cheers.

In case you were wondering, Fundarski is not Polish, as his surname would suggest. He changed it from Fundaro. And he changed his middle name to Nesr, Arabic for eagle, in honor of the anti-Semitic love he gets from the Arab Muslim community.
I love how Detroit-area Anti-Defamation League (ADL) chieftess Betsy Kellman is all up in arms about Fundarski’s flags, since she’s arguably more anti-Semitic than he is. She told a friend of mine in a phone conversation that she believes Orthodox Jews will incite violence against Muslims in the Detroit area and start riots. When my friend asked why she’d say that, she replied, “Well, you know how they [Orthodox Jews] are.” When the friend asked her to elaborate on what she meant by that, she declined. It’s incredible this organization is condemning Ann Coulter (or Fundarski, for that matter). Kellman need to clean their own house of this vermin-ette. She reminds me of light-skinned Blacks who are racist against dark-skinned Blacks.
Also, I’d love to know where Kellman was when her Islamist friends Hamad, Hammoud, Siblani, etc. at the Arab American PAC–with whom she’s very tight and always having “dialogue” over falafel–endorsed Fundarski for Congress, with his openly anti-Semitic campaign lit. Where she demand they condemn him? Don’t hold your breath. Frankly, I think she should be consistent and “dialogue” with him, too. After all, if she treated him the way she treats Hamad, Siblani, Hammoud, and Elzein, she would say he’s not anti-Semitic and that we just need to understand him, look beyond our “differences,” and get along. You know–like Rodney King used to say.
Kellman told the Dearborn Press & Guide she’s “speaking out” on the flags and banner because

People call us when they’re offended by something.

That’s funny. I called her when Lola Elzein of the Arab American PAC sent me anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying torture, rape, and death threats to myself, parents, and grandparents. Believe me, I was offended. I still am.
And Kellman did nothing.
That was almost as offensive.
ADL’s Kellman says that Fundarski’s banner and flags are not about the free speech rights that she enjoys under the First Amendment because

This isn’t about the First Amendment – it’s about human decency.

Hmmm . . . like the human decency of her statements about Orthodox Jews and her silence when my and my family’s lives were threatened by a member of an extremist Islamist organization with whom she’s friendly?
Uh, sorry, this is exactly about the First Amendment . . . and how our enemies within and their enablers and their supporters take advantage of it because they know they now have too many who not only tolerate their extremism, but support it wholeheartedly. That includes the phony posturer atop the bogus ADL.
Stay tuned for details on how easy the Hezbollah judge is on Mario Fundarski. A pox on all of their houses, especially Fundarski’s house.

I agree the ADL is a schizophrenic organization.
In Florida, for some reason they felt it necessary to be an outspoken apponent of a bilingual Hebrew charter school as it tried to from. In Florida, illegal immigrants and teacher’s unions have destroyed the public schools, so private entities are allowed to found for-profit schools and receive state funding in the form of parent-directed vouchers. A group of Jewish parents (primarily Israeli expats) decided that a Hebrew charter school would be an ideal alternative to very expensive Hebrew day schools run by local synagogues. The “hitch” is that the school may not teach religion as per US and Florida constitutions. Apparently, some of the teaching materials did contain religious references originally, and had to be changed for the local school board’s approval. That was eventually done, and the school, Ben Gamla, is now in full bilingual operation.
There was a small stir as the original religious content of the teaching materials made the local papers and was softly debated. For example, words like “shabbat”, Hebrew for Saturday but also The Sabbath, were carefully scrutinized. The ADL actually took a high profile position AGAINST the school. Why the ADL got involved in this case, which did not involve an iota of defamation or racism, is completely beyond me. I understand that separation of church and state is tangential to their purpose, but this was a little rediculous. I agree 100% with your assesment that Abe Foxman and his crew disdain any Jews more “jewish” than themselves. Unfortunately they do occasionaly do good things, and they’re the only show in town.

This is an outrage. I saw this banner about a week ago and haven’t caught anything on the news about it, though I must confess I don’t follow much of the local news lately anyway due to the lack of quality in recent years. I am amazed that in this time of war that some red blooded American hasn’t ripped it down or done some other type of vandalism to this a-holes house. If not for this being the age of video cameras I think it may have already happened. It’s a shame that as the greatest generation dies off that this type of thing makes such a strong come back. As a veteran I am double sickened!

I did e-mail Debbie Ann Coulter’s column about the ADL. She’s right; its a very liberal organization. Judging from the way it has dealt with REAL anti-semites who threatened Debbie and her family, I would go so far as to say it puts Jewish rights dead last. But its enormously concerned when a conservative calls for Jews to take their own religion more seriously. The Left doesn’t want Jews to take their religion more seriously. That would get in the way of the their alliance with Islamofascists. Its ironic liberal Jews are more worried about the prospect of Christians converting them they are about Islamists seeking to kill them. The world has changed and its time Jews pay attention to who their enemy is now.

You better pray that we do not meet Fundarski. Some Italian you are… Actually your family is probably from the north. I have some friends from Sicily I would like to introduce you to Why don’t you justg cop to being an angtisemite. At least you wouldn’t be the lieing piece of filth that you are.

lonewolf on November 4, 2007 at 2:15 pm

BTW Funda, I am of German background. NAZI Rauss!

lonewolf on November 4, 2007 at 2:17 pm

Nothing a late-night-drive-by Molotov cocktail couldn’t handle.
Not too much fuel…just enough to burn up a flag. No need to do any structural damage to the home. That would be excessive and in poor taste.
Wear a mask and pop off your license plates a few blocks prior, in case of cameras.
Come on Dearborn. This guy sounds like a real ass.

dmbream on November 4, 2007 at 3:30 pm

    This dude DMBREAM won’t do a dmn thing! You are talking all hard, wait till I report your IP address for threats. You want to burn this guys house down, bet you don’t have the balls to do it-but you will pay for what you said. This whole page is BS..F ALL OF YOU

This loser’s house looks so ghetto. It’s right on the road. He probably blames the Jews for not earning enough to afford decent housing.

lexi on November 4, 2007 at 6:27 pm

Funny that he would confront you Ms. Schlussel and not someone like Mark Levin. He’s about his age and would make short work of him as well. Any man would make short work of a sissy like this nut.

samurai on November 4, 2007 at 8:00 pm

Debbie these left wing Jews like the ADL lady resemble the Jewish leaders in Europe as the Nazis came to power. I guess that mollifying the enemy while disparaging Jews that refuse to do so may seem like a prudent approach, but I doubt it will work out much better this time around. Part of the problem is that religious Jews still refuse to be politically active, and they leave the left wing secular Jews to set the agenda. Maybe they are afraid too?

Anonymous1 on November 4, 2007 at 11:13 pm

Oh, let him have his banners, I’d like to know what he has to say. You’re not going to stop your enemies with the law, anyway. The law is what’s destroying us. The government is going to tie your hands from using real force while it allows the muslims and other enemies to ‘win’ by letting them flood into the country, breed, and completely subvert our civilization.
It’s so stupid how this guy is upset by, I guess, Israeli ‘oppression’, while he loves the palestinians and saudis. What a moron.

steve ventry on November 5, 2007 at 1:10 am

We can’t stop this as long as we treat Islam as a “relegion” rather than the death cult/crime syndicate that it is.
See my proposal to ban Islam in the US via Constitutional Amendment at:
Heres a taste
Be it resolved that the following Amendment to the Constitution be adopted:
Article I
The social/political/ideological system known around the world as Islam is not recognized in the United States as a religion.
The practice of Islam is therefore not protected under the 1st Amendment as to freedom of religion and speech.

From a legal standpoint, how does the recent decision against a homeowner association’s ban on flying American flags effect this situation? I know it is from a different jurisdiction, but I was wondering if you could briefly outline how zoning laws and homeowner association rules are limited regarding flag flying, and if those flags can be of any ilk. Thanks

dm60462 on November 5, 2007 at 10:38 am

I wonder why the ADL remains a tax exempt organization? Same with the naaLcp? These are hardly politically neutral orgs.

Please see: Oppose Fascist Rock Star’s US Tour with the Truth (Part 1)
You’ve probably heard about the major feud beween LGF and some other sites about allegations of neo-Nazis and racists in various anti-immigration political movements. I have my doubts about whether people are serious about doing something about neo-Nazis, or whether they are just trying to make themselves look good and to take swipes at other people.
So I posted a request for people to protest a GENUINE, AVOWED, flagrantly overt and violent Croatian Nazi musician who is right now touring the US and Canada.
To make things easier for everyone, I have added some contact information at the beginning of that article about protesting against the admission of ìThompsonî to the US and to Canada. However, the US State Department website form works only some of the time…
Iím beginning to wonder if this creep is getting a free pass because he is yelling and screaming for people to ìkill Serbs.î As a Serbian-American, Iíve been getting the impression that if somebody promises to rid the world of us pesky Serbs, then whatever else they doñno matter how bad it isñgets an automatic stamp of approval. In addition, though I am not Jewish myself, I do have some Jewish relatives. So I admit it, I do want a piece of this particular killer clown, big time…grrrr…
Anyhow…you and your readers might want to take a look at this.
Thanks very much!

What a suprise. He supports the dictator Hugo Chavez also.

adam6275 on November 5, 2007 at 9:29 pm

Oh, hey, this is nothing. Now, if you were to dress up as a black person in a prison outfit at a Halloween party, THAT would be a serious crime of bigotry and a threat to free people everywhere, necessitating calls to various black organizations to “inform” them of the sin and grovel and beg forgiveness:,2933,308402,00.html
What is our country coming to?

AmericanJewess on November 6, 2007 at 6:23 am

The banners were down today. Let’s hope the moron keeps them down. He is a multi-faceted idiot–dumb from every direction possible. A Mario Fundarski!

BB on November 6, 2007 at 6:51 pm

Debbbie in no way am I anti-semitic, i have never been anti-semitic i am a staunch anti Zionnis obviously i do not support the state of Israel. The swaztika is not an anti-semitic symbol. The swaztika in and of itself is a symbol of good fortune, and good health to everyone. The Nazi party adopted the swaztika as its political party symbol in 1920, it is the Nazi’s who made it a symbol of oppression, not only to Jewish people but the polish people and all people that the Nazi’s opressed. I have many Jewish friend who are also staunch amit Zionnis like my-self that alos want to change the U.S. policy towards Israel.Many of the statements and photo’s concerning myself that you have made and placed on your webpage are inaccurate, i do not dislike anyone but do not support the state of Israel.

MF: You are a liar. You have repeatedly made statements against the Jews, including when you were running for Congress and had literature making statements against the Jews and their alleged political power. DS

According to Zionists anything that does not agree with their agenda must be anti-Semitic. Playing the race card or the Holocaust card cannot possibly cover up all the crimes committed by Zionists under the cover of Judaism. One thing is clear though, is that Schlussel is a racist in the most elemental and bare-faced terms. For years now if it is anything Arab at all it is a Schlussel hate target. If hate begets hate then all I have to say is that she deserves everything that comes her way.

DB on July 11, 2011 at 11:36 am

“According to Zionists anything that does not agree with their agenda must be anti-Semitic.”

You just proved you’re true colors you neo-nazi, you are a f__king anti-semite, simple as that!

“Playing the race card or the Holocaust card cannot possibly cover up all the crimes committed by Zionist under the cover of Judaism.”

Nice try you anti-semitic cockroach, you’re NOT fooling me with you’re hateful comment and hateful thinking. Martin Luther King Jr. once said in his time, “Those who are anti-zionist are indeed anti-semitic” and that’s you DB and you’re jew-hating ilk!

“One thing is clear through, is that Schlussel is a racist in the most elemental and bare-face terms.”

*YAWN* (an angry yawn BTW), how many times have I read such propaganda crap like this against Debbie’s reputation? She is NOT a racist, she has friends from all racial and ethnic groups stupid, and you’re the one who’s the racist here you vile moron.

“For years now if it is anything Arab at all it is a Schlussel hate target.”

Once again, *YAWN*! Debbie is NOT an arab-hater dumbass, in fact, she has some arabic friends who immigrated to this country from the middle east and she speaks fluent arabic BTW. And you’re pathetic comment is completely “LIBELOUS” towards Ms. Schlussel’s character. And she does NOT deserve any type of hatred coming towards her way, as a matter of fact, NOBODY deserves hatred towards them, I don’t give a rats ass who the hell they are! For you to say that DS deserves hatred at her proves how vile, disgusting, repugnant and despicable you really are DB. Don’t comment here EVER again, and don’t you dare log onto to this website EVER again you’re pathetic miserable life you neo-nazi, now go back and stay with the low-lives on “stormfront” you hatemongorer.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on September 29, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Sean R you realize that the ones responsible for the Rwandan genocide also used the term “cockroach” to rally people and successfully kill off nearly 100,000 people 3 times faster then the rate of people dying in the holocaust. If your going to post about someone being a hatemongorer you should probably change your rhetoric so as to sound not so hate full. Anyway the Israeli covered in swashticas is extremely fitting as their policies are very similar. 1) Everyone you don’t like you force out of their homes to live behind walls. 2) If any retaliation comes from the Palestinians themselves or any other Arab states say a bombing, then they are punished collectively by an Israeli airstrike or artillery bombardment. This way of operating is exactly the same as Hitlers SS troops.
