Waitress @ Jihad IHOP: Schlussel Is Right; Egyptian Muslim Owner Knowingly Hired Illegals

By Debbie Schlussel

Today, I heard from a woman who says she worked at one of the Islamic Jihad IHOPs raided today by FBI and ICE agents in the Joint Terrorism Task Force.  The woman said I was absolutely correct in my opinion that the owner of the raided IHOPs, Tarek Elkafrawi a/k/a Terry Elk a/k/a Terry Elks, is an Egyptian Muslim.  That means he’s a Sunni and most likely funding HAMAS with the money laundering. Alhamdillullah [praise allah]. She also said that he knowingly hired illegal aliens. Below is her e-mail, but I am protecting her identity because Islamic terrorists are scary people and do a lot of “interesting” things to witnesses and potential witnesses.

Hi! Just read your article and wanted to let you know that you ARE correct! They have already published his name in the IHOP location that is in our area, Tarek Elkafrawi or also known as Terry Elks. I used to be employed there. And I do know for a fact that he allows illegal immigrants and he knows about it. I even know of one person he allowed to use a couple different names just so he wouldn’t have to pay child support! I have no idea about the money laundering because I was just a measly server…but illegals….yes. And, yes, he is Egyptian.

I also heard from customers, like Yael, who are upset they unknowingly spent money that likely went to HAMAS. Here’s what she wrote:

We’ve been to the Central Ave and Talmadge restaurants many times for coffee. I’m absolutely sick we’ve given money to this man and the thought it’s funded terror acts on fellow Jews. Keep speaking the truth!!!!

No, we have never met the owner, Tarek Elkafrawi, but the last time we were in there the Miss Ohio competitors were in the back room with him, the manager (also an arab and the reason we stopped going there), and a lot of media coverage of the event. You may be able to find pictures/video of it. On a side note while all this is going on, there is a mock UN and “lecture” going on this week at the UT supported by the “Students for Justice in Palestine” . I guess you can call Toledo “Toledostan” officially now.

Toledo has long been swarming with Muslims funding HAMAS and Hezbollah, including the “Red Wing terrorists.” I’m not surprised by any of this. Muslims funding and supporting terrorist are all over America.

That’s why it’s soooo important to find out who owns the businesses you patronize and not fund Muslims who, even if they don’t finance Islamic terrorism, morally support it.

You know, Debbie, THIS is the kind of reporting and analyses you do better than anyone.

Debbie, as I said about 3 weeks ago or so, you are like “PI Bill Warner” (he happens to be on your own blog-roll) who does good/great investigative work and DON’T sit on your two hands and wait for the MSM to break news. Ironically, I haven’t heard this story on any news broadcast, whether it’s any talk radio show or any cable news network!

Debbie awesome reporting! I found you thru a link from the comment
section in the Evansville Courier. I will be following this IHOP story here also.

Jesse on September 20, 2011 at 9:22 pm

Hat tip Debbie. The two inextricably intertwined stories expose ‘the elephant in the room’ that the politicians are avoiding, Immigration/illegal employment.

PsychoCheese’s posting:
“The thing no one ever talks about is how do all these foreigners come to the USA and buy up all these franchises and businesses in the first place? Why is it easier from some “poor wretched third worlder” to come to the USA and buy a 7-11 franchise than it is for a US Citizen from birth? Why do black people not own the various bodegas, convenience stores, liqueur stores, etc. in their own neighborhoods? Notice how many cash businesses are owned by foreigners? Methinks some audits are in order…”

The mini-cab business is huge and supports PsychoCheese’s argument. As America falters down the financial plug hole looking for taxes surely the ‘black market/cash business/no taxes’ should be investigated. Breaking the law to employ illegals as an excuse for ‘all businesses will go under’ is plain dumb. Illegal workers-poor pay- is akin to slave labour with reduced Rights.

The DSK ‘rape case’ hi-lighted employment of illegal migrants. So will the Sofitel Group go under without illegal employment, don’t think so…

Thought this is what the CHANGE was going to bring, Equal Rights for ALL…….

    Very interesting post, Eyes.

And I cannot believe that none of the conservatives in talk radio mentioned this story today (I’m sorry to say this, even my man Michael Savage didn’t bring this story to the plate today on his show), and most of the conservative bloggers didn’t bother write this story, all of them are doing the same crap of “Democrat bad, Republican good”, “Obama’s a marxist”, “Obama’s ruining America” (all of that is a fact, but til an extent it gets old, boring, tiresome, & un-original). And the samething can be said for the left wing MSM, they haven’t said anything of this story either, but I expect that from the liberal media, not from the conservative media!

Sean R. on September 20, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Sean, maybe the reason Rush and the other hosts (except Savage) don’t discuss Islamic fifth columns in this country is because as Debbie has pointed out,some of the financial backers of terrorism have connections to Republican politicians – some of whom may be friends of Rush and his fellow hosts.

    I don’t listen to Savage or other talk shows that often, but I have heard Savage at least discuss the internal Islamic threat.

    I prefer not to defend Obama, but if you or other people are going to throw the “Marxist” label around, then we can assume you’re familiar with the communist manifesto and can document proof of how Obama is setting up a “dictatorship of the proletariat”.

    Like most Americans (probably including you),Obama has a hodge-podge combination of capitalist and socialist ideology.

    Social (socialist) Security, food stamps,student loans,FEMA, AFDC, Workmans comp,etc,etc are ALL socialist programs which MOST Americans support some or all, which means most Americans have to at least SOME socialist leanings.

Close the borders.
Send everyone back and make them apply for citizenship.
Make English the official language.
Govern by only two documents: The Constitution and The Bill of Rights.

    (The Bill of Rights is part of the Constitution.)

I’m still waiting for all those throngs of peaceful muslims to come out and condemn islamic atrocities. I wonder what’s keeping them.

David Lanham on September 21, 2011 at 1:41 am

Hey Guys, you just don’t understand anything. As the “UNDERWEAR BOMBER” says, as reported in the Detroit News –
no one understands because they don’t understand the Qur’an / Koran. Furthermore, as Kaddafi has said on occasion, ISLAM IS ISLAM…IT IS WHAT IT IS.


Gee, that’s too bad for U-W-B. Perhaps he should familiarize himself with our LAWS, especially the CRIMINAL CODES. And for the rest of you wannabee bombers, terrorist supporters, and common no-goodniks…leave your little book at home to collect dust or be a door-stopper.

ps: I purchased “SATANIC VERSES”, Rushdie’s novel, back in the ’80s, but never read it. Recently, I started reading and it is funny, interesting, and reminds me of James Joyce’s novels. So, if you’re into reading, forget the Qur’an / Koran and get S V instead.

Pretty much all the talk show hosts play to the bulk of their auds—who definitely seem to like the same thing every single day. Besides, it’s a lot easier that way coming up with the content.

Just remember, the content exists solely as filler between the commercials.

Deb will never go mainstream precisely BECAUSE she has hard-hitting content, and doesn’t care whom she offends. Most regulars here know of a few other sites that operate in this manner–but there are none too many.

Red Ryder on September 21, 2011 at 8:41 am

Any company that hires illegal immigrants, the CEO should be flogged by police, on TV.

Truth on September 21, 2011 at 9:50 am

    Illegal alien workers are this century’s slave labor. That’s all there is too it. They are not here to do jobs “no one wants to do”. They are here doing jobs unskilled/low-skilled people, like TEENAGERS, USED to do, until illegals came along and do it cheaper…and yes, sadly, sometimes better. Although the toilets at my office building haven’t been cleaned for a couple of weeks…

    PsychoCheese on September 21, 2011 at 1:42 pm

      PsychoCheese: The majority of mini-cab drivers in Atlanta are foreign coming from Nigeria, Somalia and other Muslim related enclaves of Africa. Very rarely will you ever find an African cab driver from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia Atlanta. Africans with a tribal heritage are rarely found in this commercial environment. However, the former group are tied in to hotel reception desks with every personal detail including credit cards available to them. They operate on the ‘scratch-back’ system.

      Skilled migrants they are not but they have wormed themselves into the system, availing themselves of USA social privileges and created ‘anchor families’ whilst cash leaves the country to further nefarious organisations elsewhere. If you think the Mafia mob were a closed chapter of mayhem, these have surreptitiously cornered the market with a deeper, darker agenda. The tried and tested model is now in place for replication elsewhere, so who needs franchising, concessions and all that other business malarky with regimentation and laws of business. They just make their own….The cherry on the top is the blanket of Amnesty. What an easy mission, hey, with buckets of CASH coming in.

      ‘Evil flourishes whilst good men look on”….but only the paranoid survive.

this is one of the exceptions to Oscar Wilde’s statement “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”

those insidious cartoons

The former president of Afghanistan – a major figure who was leading peace talks aimed at ending the war – was killed in his home Tuesday by a suicide attacker wearing an exploding turban.

Burhanuddin Rabbani died when he hugged his assassin, who triggered the bomb, officials said.

That does it. I’m going back to Aunt Jemima and Bisquick.

Everytime you eat halal meat, you’re chipping in for terrorism. New Zealand lamb is almost always halal. Rocky’s chicken is halal, but it’s not on the label, just the organic, grass fed stuff which appeals to the nutty crunchy types who have no idea what they are actually eating.

Adam on September 21, 2011 at 11:17 am

    The problem with purchasing ANYTHING from muslims, even the westernized ones who don’t really follow the koran and hadiths, is that if any of them give the zakat (charity) as required by one of the pillars of their faith, they could be unknowingly funding terror as they have no idea who is really behind the many islamic “charity” organizations or what they do with the dough.

    PsychoCheese on September 21, 2011 at 1:46 pm

To Scott here’s you’re quote that I agree with dude:

“Maybe the reason Rush and the other host (except Savage) doen’t discuss Islamic fifth columns in this country is because as Debbie has pointed out, some the financial backers of terrorism have connections to Republican politicans-some of whom may be friends of Rush and his fellow hosts.”

OMG Scott, you might be correct about what you typed bro, it could be that the reason why Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Inghram, etc. have talked VERY little of the risk of islamisim towards this country is because of what you type. And let’s not mince words and kid ourselves here, the muslim lobbyist are NOT just backers of the Democrat, they’re also backers of the Republican party as well, and Debbie to her own credit has written numerous articles/columns on this blog in the past. And that’s why DS is disgusted with the GOP, in which ironic, Debbie happens to be a registered “Republican”!

“but I have heard Savage atleast discuss the internal Islamic threat.”

You got that dude, to his own credit, Michael Savage has pointed out the threat of islam to our borders and shores. But unfortunately for Dr. Savage, he’s not quite aware of some of the Tea Party speakers being paid off by some muslim front groups in this country and being financed from islamic terrorist groups in the ME. And I don’t think he’s aware of Grover Norquist being in bed with the muslim lobby groups?

To Red Ryder, here’s you’re quote that I also agree with:

“Pretty much all the talk show hosts play to the bulk of their auds-who definitely seem to like the same thing every single day.”

Couldn’t agree with you anymore buddy, and to be honest with you dude, I’ve been listening to very few talk radio shows these days, because it’s the same BS everyday, “Republicans great, Democrats terrible”, “Conservatives terrific, Liberals evil”, “Obama’s a socialist”, etc. Most of what their saying is true, but til a degree it gets boring, old and very tiresome.

“Deb will never go mainstream precisely BECAUSE she has hard-hitting content, and doesn’t care whom she offends.”

You also got that right man, the reason why DS left WND and a few other sources was because those louts “plagarized” off of her and NEVER gave the woman any credit for her own original work. And I also pity some of those clownish conservatives who uses all sorts of propaganda against DS and lie about her, etc. I believe some of these moronic conservatives agree with plagarizing by stealing other peoples work? And BTW, I am glad DS is NOT PC!

A few years ago I met with a friend near her residence at the IHOP located at 101 S Randall Road Elgin IL 60123-5551 847-289 4801. My friend wanted to share her experience on a recent trip to Israel. We ordered a drink and I couldn’t help but notice that there was a person cleaning the spot of flag- decorated glass near us. My friend was with her young daughter shoeing me the pictures. At one point the manager engaged into our conversation and disapproval of the State of Israel. He voiced his complaint that trips to visit his family were even difficult as he couldn’t take the shorter route instead a longer trip around for ten hours. He continued to voice his dissatisfaction until he asked me if I was Jewish. I affirmed. His frame of demeanor changed immediately and he asked us to pay for our drinks and leave the store making a huge uproar. Because there was a child with us we decided not to call the police in what we agreed was an assault that could had escalated if we didn’t leave. My friend and I called IHOP Corporate,, but our calls were forwarded over and over to the store where the incident happened. My friend and I were both educators in the City of Elgin and felt disenchanted that IHOP corporate dismissed our claims and brushed the situation even providing our information to the sane person who had acted in a vile manner. I have retained the receipt of the incident and and my friend and I have made the commitment not to go to any IHOP not ever for a “Kosher” drink.

Sean, I think Scott (above) was threading too fine a line on your remark that ZerObama is a Marxist. He is correct on his summation (USA has a tic of Socialism here and there) but he knows what you mean about him being a Marxist. And I believe he is a Marxist. Everyone in his life (Mummy, Daddy, REAL Daddy FMD and his good pal Bill Ayers) is a Marxist. If one follows the TRUE path of Zero (and not the construct that is as fake as The Wizard of Oz) it’s Marxism here, there and everywhere. One does not have to site the CM line and verse to come to that conclusion.

Red was spot on in his post. Laura Ingraham was interviewing a CAIR freak this am. She let the sputtering fool get by with lots of untruths (taqiyya, anyone?) and was hardly impressive. I do NOT appreciate it when moderate talk-show hosts have a CAIR freak on and they let the interview fall into “we report…YOU decide” mode. With Islam, there is NO room to give them ANY legitimacy. And especially an organization that in an unindicted co-conspirator. But then again LI has Pat Buchanan on as well that rude puke Jonathan Alter. I think I will stop listening to her show. It’s more out of habit (and expediency) than anything else.

Rush is worth listening to because he is spot-on about Zero and was calling it loooooong before anyone else would and did. Line and verse. (And although I have long been a Rush fan, I did not listen to him regularly ’til Sept 2008).

Try “Quinn & Rose” (free podcast available on iTunes) because that is one of the most hard-hitting shows (and I strongly prefer them) that tells it like it is on Islam and everything else. I also REALLY like Brett Winterble now. I listen to his podcast and he is VERY hard-hitting and not filler like Vannity.

I think I am gonna re-tool my talk show listening. I am getting sick of shows I used to like (like Ingrahams) because I see how soft-ball they are. And like you said, none take on the Islamic threat.
