Dr. Phil v. Katherine Lester, This Week: Girl Who Fled Small-Town Michigan for Sharia Islam & Palestinian Psycho

By Debbie Schlussel
Readers of this site are familiar with the story of Katherine Lester, about which I’ve written a great deal. She’s the young small-town Michigan girl who met “Abdullah Psycho” a/k/a Abdullah Jimzawi a/k/a Abdullah Jinzawi on MySpace. At 16, she ran away from home to convert to Islam, wear a hijab, and marry this Palestinian (who lied about his age online) in Jericho, Israel. She was stopped by the FBI in Jordan. But now she’s 18, and in September, she went back to be with Mr. Al-Psycho.



Dr. Phil Meets Katherine Lester:

From Cute Small-Town Teen Girl to Islamic Palestinian Brainwash-ette


As I noted, Dr. Phil did a show on this, and it runs this week. It’s actually a two-parter airing tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday. Although I’m no fan of the follicularly-challenged know-it-all or Bride of Phil a/k/a Mrs. Phil, from the trailer (click on Wednesday), it looks as though the slant on this story is finally the right one (ie., that she’s in danger there and needs some sense knocked into her, which she didn’t get from her father and stepmother, who encouraged and glamorized this dumb relationship). The other media outlets–from “Good Morning America” to Seventeen Magazine–all portrayed it as a tender Romeo and Juliet love story.
Still, from the summaries the Dr. Phil show is sending out, that he’s still kinda clueless (thanks to reader Debra for sending these). For starters, she’s in Jericho, which is in Israel (some say, it’s the “West Bank”), NOT Gaza. Abdullah is at least 25, NOT 20, and claimed he was much younger on his MySpace page. And her father and stepmother encouraged the online relationship for two years, so it didn’t “continue secretly”:

Daughter in Danger?

When Shawn’s daughter, Katherine, was only 16 years old, she made international headlines when she ran away to the Middle East to be with 20-year-old Abdullah, whom she met on MySpace — a man she never met in person but was convinced she was in love with. The FBI intercepted her in Jordan and escorted her back to the United States. Unbeknownst to her family, Katherine secretly continued a relationship with Abdullah via the phone and the computer for two years. After turning 18, Katherine said goodbye to her family and left to be with Abdullah in the war-torn Gaza Strip. Katherine’s family is terrified that she’s never going to return. They think Abdullah is lying to Katherine and possibly even brainwashing her. They say when she calls, something doesn’t sound right. Is she afraid for her life, but unable to tell them? Is she being held against her will? Dr. Phil talks with Katherine via satellite from Palestine, and has some hard questions for Abdullah about his real intentions with Katherine.

A Daughter in Danger? Part 2

Dr. Phil continues the story of a young woman who made international headlines when she ran away to Palestine to be with a man she met on the Internet when she was just 16. Katherine was stopped by the FBI and brought back home, but two years later and now an adult, she’s left the United States again to be with Abdullah, the man she says she loves and wants to marry. Katherine’s terrified family thinks she is being brainwashed, and may never be allowed to return home. They say they’ve witnessed Abdullah’s violent temper when he’s verbally abused her over the phone. Now, in an exclusive interview via satellite, Dr. Phil speaks with Katherine and Abdullah together. Is Abdullah lying about letting Katherine return home? Is this couple already married? If you are a parent with a child who has access to the Internet, you can’t afford to miss this show!

A Palestinian Muslim boyfriend has a “violent temper” and is “verbally abus[ive]”? Shocker.
I will watch and give you the scoop, if there’s any to be had. But I think I’ve pretty much covered this story, on this site.
Still, I think the line in the trailer in which Katherine’s mother talks about her daughter sums it up:

She’s so stupid.

Yup, stupid and stuck in Greater Islamia, which knows no borders.
Sadly, in the last two years, Katherine Lester was not in the custody of her mother, Shawn, and her sister. Instead, she was in the custody of her father, Terry, and stepmother, Krista, who pimped her out and encouraged this horrific relationship.
Could this be your daughter? If you read this site, probably not. You know how to be a parent, especially in the face of Islam.

Debbie: Jericho is not unfortunately in Israel. It is under control of the so called Palestinian Authority. It it were in Israel then Abdullah Psycho would be an Israeli Arab (a citizen of Israel). Yeah I know all about Eretz Israel but lets face facts – Israelis left Jericho in 1993 to the tender mercies of Yasser Arafat.

She is not the only gullible dolt that fell for her arab boyfriend’s/husbands charms. Its an unfortunate phenomenon in Israel where jewish girls constantly elope with their arab boyfriends.Some are lucky to escape from the arab villages they live in once they discover the hot-tempered abusive nature of their spouses for for others it may be too late.This all stems from dire a lack of parental guidence and vigilance but the proclaim renown Dr. Psycho Phil couldn’t come up with that hypothesis despite his psychological brilliancy.

I hate to kick a loser when she’s down, but she looks like white trash. Let her stay with the arabs and don’t let her return to the US.

It is really hard to understand that level of stupidity, isn’t it? But we have it here in Israel, too. As someone pointed out, Jewish girls go with Arab boys into the territories and only the lucky ones get rescued and brought back into civilization.
Stupid stupid stupid. This story needs to be widely broadcast. Whatever you think of Dr. Phil, at least he is not afraid to cover it.

Unfortunately, she will be lucky if she ever gets out of the country. Anyone with any common sense saw this coming when Debbie first wrote about this ridiculous case.
As I recall, the mother wrote Debbie telling her off. I wonder what she has to say now?

Lol, the whole 3 series show was orchestrated to humilate that dumb guy, as an individual he was a retard, but you’re all laughing cos it reinforces your superiority to a whole nation of people. On a happier note the Chinese are the next world leaders and we won’t have to put up with this facsism and ignorance for much longer. BRING IT.

You people are such racist pigs. She loves the guy and age in a relationship doesn’t mean jack shit. anyone can be with anyone of legal age..(which she is now)..if he/she wants to. You people can’t even live your own lives properly, you wanna tell her what she can and cannot do. I wish you people get executed by your own fellow countrymen…the murderers and serial killers you guys have there in that crazy country called America. You guys are the real wackos, then you say that the wackos come from the middle east. You people do so much wrong…you are all going to burn in Jahannam for all your sins. I rather not say anything…God will judge between us on the Day of Judgement. You colorless apes are gonna be deep fried in the flames of Hell. You people are just jealous because you cannot stop the suicide guys who are killing you. There’s nothing that you guys can do to be safe. You caused it for yourselves, now die in regret. Not all Muslims are terrorists…get that into your thick flippin heads. You guys are just rascist pigs and I am glad that you guys are dying like flies at the hands of the terrorists around the globe.

Allah (SWT) knows all and leads who He wants to lead into the light. Who are we to question His authority? We are nothing compared to Him. Why interfere with her life and get involved in her relationship? Stop the racism and let her be with who she wants to be with. You do not know any more than she does, so how can u people judge her? F*ck all of you filthy, evil people…and f*ck your parents too for not teaching you not to be racist.
