The Company Feds Keep: Friend of Bush’s Detroit Feds, Judicial Nominee Murphy Publishes Tribute to Terrorist Mastermind of Israeli Yeshiva Massacre; UPDATE: Fixed Graphic

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE: I posted this earlier today, but had technical problems with the photo I posted. The JPEG of the Arab American News’ and Osama Siblani’s tribute to the terrorist who masterminded the Jerusalem school massacre of young boys, and call to terrorists to continue in this “work” is now fixed and visible below. Remember, the man who published this is tight with Bush’s new nominee for U.S. District Court, Stephen Murphy III. ****
Yesterday, President Bush announced the nomination of U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III a/k/a “Abu Porno” to a Federal Judgeship in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.
I’ve repeatedly detailed on this site how Murphy allowed Hezbollah financiers from the Hammoud and Chahine families to leave the country, then indicted them once they were conveniently out of reach. I’ve written about how Murphy has the worst record of prosecuting terrorists of any U.S. Attorney in the country. I told you how his tight friendship with Islamic terrorism financiers is so tight that, last month, he had to recuse himself and his entire office from the prosecution of Saddam spy Muthanna Al-Hanooti of HAMAS/Al-Qaeda charity, LIFE for Relief and Development, with whose officers Murphy is close.


Stephen Murphy: Bush Federal Bench Nominee

Soft on Terrorists, Friends with Them

I’ve also detailed how Murphy repeatedly praised Ayatollah Khomeini’s former Navy imam, and clapped vigorously when the Imam said, “What’s going on in the South of Lebanon [Hezbollah], that’s not terrorism. That’s legitimate resistance.” At the same gathering, Murphy stated he was unsure why Hezbollah was on the State Department Terrorist List and that it was merely a “humanitarian group that builds hospitals and orphanages.”
Murphy stated that he came to this conclusion about Hezbollah while lunching with his good friend, Osama Siblani, publisher and owner of the Arab American News. As I’ve noted on this site, Siblani was identified as an American agent of Hezbollah by the Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Seyassah.
But last month was a new low for Siblani and his paper (which is believed to be subsidized by Hezbollah). The paper–which practices Arafatian deception in publishing one set of “moderate” articles in English and another set of pro-terrorist ones in Arabic–published a glowing, Arabic tribute, pictured below, to Ahmad Al-Balboul, head of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade terrorist group and the man who planned the shooting murder of eight kids at the Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav school in Jerusalem. Al-Balboul was killed in March by Israeli counterterrorism agents.
Siblani was asked to and did post this tribute to terrorist leader Al-Balboul by his terrorist family. So, you see, Siblani uses his newspaper as a messenger for Islamic terrorist groups all over, not just his own Hezbollah. And this terrorist messenger–encouraging terrorists to keep on keepin’ on–is the confidant of Bush’s latest federal bench nominee. Splendid.

This Call to Terrorists Was Published in the Arab American News

Here is the English language translation of what Siblani–future Judge Murphy’s friend–wrote in his newspaper:

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
From the Koran: “Do not think that the people who were martyrs are dead, but they are alive in the eyes of Allah.”
The word of Allah is the truth.
[Picture of Ahmad Al-Balboul]
We bring the news from the Balboul family in Palestine and all immigrants the martyr of the leader of the group of Shohdaa El-Aksa [Al Aqsa Martyrs], the courageous Ahmad Balboul and his friends from Saraya El-Kodos [The Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Brigades], the martyrs Mohamed Shehata and Imad El-Kamel and Issa Marzook [DS: three other terrorists assassinated] the ones that have been murdered by the aggressive hand of the Jews in the city of Bethlehem on Wednesday March 12, 2008. Their martyrdom affects all the Arab and Islamic Nations and condolences came from Lebanon and other Arabic countries to the families of the murdered.
To all our innocent martyrs and to all Lebanon martyrs and to all the people of Islamic and Arabic nations forever glory.
From Allah we come and to Allah we shall return.

This is the “work” of Osama Siblani, friend of Bush’s current U.S. Attorney and choice for federal judge.
Check out this picture. It’s worth a thousand words.

The Company Stephen Murphy Keeps . . .


U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy w/Islamic Terrorism Supporters Osama Siblani, Shereef Akeel, Imad Hamad & Noel Saleh

The men pictured, above, with a smiling Murphy are (from left) Murphy’s close personal friends Siblani, publisher of the openly pro-homicide bomber Arab American News (which proudly supports, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and Louis Farrakhan). The taller man standing in the back is Shereef Akeel, a lawyer for Islamic terrorist groups and charities. Beneath him and to Murphy’s right is “former” Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist Imad Hamad. To Murphy’s left is Noel Saleh, who openly stated that he gave money to Hezbollah. Saleh is an ACLU attorney who filed the lawsuits challenging the Patriot Act and NSA wiretapping. The are pictured at their monthly love-fest at Murphy’s office.
Write and call the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to tell them what you think of President Bush’s “stellar” choice for the Federal Bench.
Remember how they told us the reason to vote for Bush was his judicial nominees? They lied.

Debbie There is a large graphic file that is not positing on this story at 3:00 PM–please fix.
I am glad you are keeping the lights on this idiot, Mr. Siblani. How this man gets taken seriously as a legitimate “news” publisher of the “Arab American News” is mind blowing. Last week I caught on their web site a story posted as an anti-Israel op ed–it seemed like total BS. I checked the source and sure enough, the woman cited as the author of a current op ed story had died 8 years ago. Siblani will reach for any bottom of the barrel thing he can to defame Israel and to advance Hizbollah and Hamas terrorists as though they are legitimate. It is shameful and he is shameless.
As you point out–he and Mr. Murphy are a match made in hell.

So, we’re paying the salaries of these people, they don’t go after Muslim terrorists, they don’t go after illegal aliens, this is Government over the people, not of the people or by the people.

Stephen Murphy should be under investigation for fraternization with known criminals and for having social contacts with targets of a LE investigation.
Where is the US Attorneys Office of Professional Responsibility?
Murphy is violating every single tenet of ethics within the Law Enforcement community. He has ongoing relationships with the possible targets of criminal prosecution and known terrorists.
Or, has the US Attorney Office become immune from these rules?

So, Debbie… if George W’s judges are so bad…. wait till you see Barrack Huessein Obama’s nominees!!

Congratulations to the Israeli anti-terror forces who took out Ahmad Al-Balboul and the three other sub-humans on March 12th, striking with an “aggressive hand.” Wish we’d see much more of that from our own leadership (so-called), instead of the nomination to federal judgeships of terrorist-enablers and BFF’s of these human debris, like Abu Porno.
Karen: While you’re absolutely right about Usama bin Obama’s judicial nominees being infinitely worse than anyone GWB has or will ever put into nomination (in fact, “Barry” will utterly destroy this nation within his first four years in office, along with his “lovely” wife, Michelle “The Contemptuous One,” so he won’t even need to run for a second term upon being named “Maximum Leader” and “Dictator for Life” by the then-dissolved U.S. Congress), that doesn’t change the fact that this inept, incompetent, terrorist-loving, ass-kissing moron will soon be a U.S. District Court Judge. I AM amazed that Abu Porno wasn’t picked over John Roberts to be the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, when GWB had the chance! Ah, what could have been . . .

This is article I found on Siblani’s web site–The Arab American News.

The author died 8 years ago. It is such a bunch of BS. Yet Siblani puts this as a lead story in his propaganda rag (I wrote them asking about the author and he took it off the front page the next day). He is a true muslim indeed. It’s scary to think that such ignorant people will load their minds with anything that makes Israel look bad.

YOU FUCKING BITCH! thats my uncle your talking about you pathetic piece of shit. i hope you rot in hell, and even though people wont see this, i hope you fucking get your ass beat one day and thats as deep as your hatred for palestinians, fucking bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK first things first…this is Dana, which you called in your blog a “terrorist”. If you had any peace of mind you would understand that a loss is a loss to anyone, regardless of how you view the person; family members were devastated at this crime. Its sad that PALESTINE had to lose one of its most powerful freedom-fighter. Yes, I said it, FREEDOM-fighter, not a terrorist, which is probably the only term you know. And the American news broadcasting system says Muslims embed hate into their children. You’re the reason “hate” exists you dipshit. And you have no evidence whatsoever that he was the so-called mastermind in the Yeshiva massacre. I’ll tell you something the world doesn’t know and you probably do know, but insist on denying; Israel is responsible for war crimes. The violated the Geneva Conventions by targetting civilians, ignored recent ceasefires with Hamas, and used improper military responses. Debbie you obviously know israel is committing all the wrong and majority of these freedom fighters fought for the freedom they didn’t have: the rights Israel refuses to give them. I think that’s why you’re so FUITH (fucked up in the head), because you know Israel has done their justice wrong since day one so you insist on manipulating the minds of simple-minded people to think otherwise of Israel. It’s ok the truth hurts, but in your case the truth is hidden. It’s pathetic people like yourself that don’t need to exist in this world. And just to give you a little side note. I don’t hate Jews, I hate zionists. Or in other cases you.
