IHOP Jihad UPDATE: Raided Managers Were Previous Terror Suspects

By Debbie Schlussel

Another update on the jihadist IHOP franchises owned by Tarek Elkafrawi a/k/a Terry Elk a/k/a “Terry Elks.”  While you watch this video (the station doesn’t give embed codes, so you have to click on the link to watch) remember that these morons in local Midwestern TV news don’t know what they are talking about.  (The aging fratboy reporter can’t even pronounce the name Tarek properly.  It’s “TAHR-ik,” not “Tuh-REEK.”)  In fact, these Egyptians were never “cleared” or “exonerated” of involvement with terrorism back in 2001.  They merely weren’t charged because there wasn’t enough evidence to convince an O.J. Simpson/Casey Anthony jury or because we need to be kind to Muslims who take advantage of us.  Also note that YES, in fact, the raids on the IHOPs in Ohio and Indiana, yesterday, were connected to a terrorism investigation.  I know this FOR A FACT.  I know that the Joint Counterterrorism Task Force headed up the investigation and I even know the names of some of the agents and what they work on.  So, ignore these morons when they say it’s “not” connected to terrorism.  I know a lot more and that will be forthcoming in the next few days.  Stay tuned.


Also in the video, note the moronic senior citizen couple who, when informed what’s going on, still want to return to the IHOP to eat.  Idiots.  This is why we will never win against the Islamic threat.  That aging couple is more concerned with getting their fill of pancakes than ending their support for a business that hired illegal aliens and money launders to terrorists.  If that isn’t proof that there isn’t Islamophobia in America, I don’t know what is.  We are a nation with zero resolve.

Today’s IHOP raids are reminiscent of the case of the Crazy Tomato restaurant on Green River Road a month after the terror attacks of 9-11.

And there is a connection.

The manager of the IHOP in Evansville, Tarek Omar, was one of the nine men detained in the Crazy Tomato case.

The men were Egyptian and about half of them worked for the Crazy Tomato. They were suspected of having material information on terrorist activity. But after being detained and interrogated in Chicago, they were exonerated and released.

Again, they were never “exonerated.” That’s just BS.  And, as I said, I’ll be telling  you a whole lot more about this very soon.

Once again, you nailed it, Debbie. These filthy interloping terrorists will never rest easy while you’re on the job.

Debbie IHOP goers are not by and large an impressive lot, but they can typically eat enough carbs in one sitting to feed a small African village for a week. You’re not shomer negiah (a nun) are u?

Nice stuff, Debbie. Bravo.

skzion on September 21, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    I went to one of the IHOP’s in Toledo last year on 9/11 and there was a lot of suspicious behavior going on between several individuals. It really freaked me out, and my brother told me that I was just being silly, that nothing was going on.

    Cassy on September 22, 2011 at 2:47 am

The telephone number for IHOP’s “guest relations” is (866) 444-5144.

Call and tell them that you will not eat their crap unless they remove the franchises from this lout.

Spread the word to Boycott IHOP until criminal ownership of the IHOPs ends.

Jonathan E. Grant on September 21, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    Not every one is an ethical or law-abiding franchisee. But yes, its still the company’s fault. It should be bad for a business to break the law. That’s the bottom line.

    IHOP needs to clean up its act. This blog can shame it into doing the right thing.

    Debbie, keep up the good work!

    NormanF on September 21, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Just another restaurant I won’t eat at. Denny’s started the ball rolling years ago when they caved to Jesse. Shame on these guys. Don’t they vet their potential franchisees?

JeffT on September 21, 2011 at 7:12 pm

That couple probably isn’t willing to sacrifice because there’s no United States to sacrifice for, anymore. Everyone seems to be accepting that the US is nothing but a public park and the whole world has a right to come here and do whatever they want to it.

David Lanham on September 21, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Folks, I never in my life ordered or purchased foods and beverages from IHOP in my 30+ years of exist (I’m in my early 30s), over the last 24-36 hours I kinda doubt that I’ll order and buy any stuff from IHOP because of this scandalous story with Mr. Elkafrawi’s money laundering from muslim countries overseas! And once again, I haven’t heard or seen this story bought to the table by either the liberals and the conservatives (I’m more disappointed in the righties for NOT mentioning this story, I expect the lefties to cover it up and not mention it.).

So, is sausage and ham on their IHOP menu?

Marisa on September 21, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Awaiting delivery instructions….

    Lord Egbut Nobacon on September 21, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    If you’re thinking about their food – its not halal or kosher. Keep that the next time you hear how pious Muslims are about what they eat and drink. That’s also a scam.

    NormanF on September 21, 2011 at 11:33 pm

Why are people so down on strange foreigners?
Its not like they are ever any trouble.

sg on September 21, 2011 at 8:18 pm

Thank you Debbie for being on top of this story. I am looking forward to your follow-up material.

I also hope that NormanF at 7:56 pm is correct in saying that Debbie will help to shame IHOP into cleaning up its act and do the right thing.

JeffE on September 21, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    She is reporting facts you won’t find anywhere else. The owners of these IHOPs were up to no good. One expects better from a brand name company than to look the other way. I support the free market. And I also firmly believe it needs to be policed. Sunshine from blogs like Debbie’s is the best antidote to people victimizing innocent Americans for nefarious ends. If I patronize an IHOP restaurant, I expect good food for a reasonable price. I don’t unsuspectingly want my money to be diverted to fund terrorism against Israel and America. IHOP has two choices: it can serve food or it can fund jihad but it should NOT be allowed to do both. Period.

    NormanF on September 21, 2011 at 11:27 pm

      Amen, NormanF.

      JeffE on September 21, 2011 at 11:49 pm

I’ve never eaten at IHOP. Besides the terrorist activities, it sounds like a nasty place to eat.

Ilan on September 21, 2011 at 11:24 pm

Wait I just go to work and take care of my kids at night before passing out with my wife, wake up repeat.

Is this mostly a hate site against Islam or is it tracking terrorism?

Also, IHOP sucks.

Muslim on September 22, 2011 at 2:15 am

    “I this mostly a hate site against Islam or is it tracking terrorism?”

    Well to answer your own question, it’s the second one, this blog is refuting and giving out the facts about risk of islamic terrorism, period. It’s NOT a “hate site”, and it’s NOT a muslim bashing site either, if you’ve been here long enough you’d realize it already.

Great article. Thanks.

Let’s keep the crime scene tape around all ihops until the criminals are removed from the scenes.

Lars on September 22, 2011 at 9:24 am

Schlussel is wrong on one point. Islam will loose and with time die. And Schlussel is one of the very best executioners of Islam. More importantly, she broadly disinfects western civilization of a number of ills.

philososky on September 22, 2011 at 11:34 am

Debbie is the best consumer guide we have to identifying business fronts for Islamic terror organizing and fundraising. Keep up the good work.

What’s with IHOP anyway? Even if these were franchise rather than corporate outlets, headquarters is supposed to maintain oversight on this sort of thing.

Seek on September 22, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Great info. ANOTHER attack probably averted now. Total media blackout on the opening of the mosque in NYC. I wonder if the IRS can attach this mosque/building contents later on for all the tax liens these people do owe in back taxes to our government. IRS should attach assets of the Kahns, Gamal, and everyone else associated with this travesty. The original name Cordoba House speaks volumes about its symbolic triumph over America on 9/11 and in future.

CJ on September 22, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Hey Debbie-

Any idea if they knew the Akl’s?? I would venture a guess and say yes. And probably the guys that were running that used car dealership/terror cell too.

Yael on September 22, 2011 at 3:55 pm

Debbie, here in Evanspatch most people are not aware of radical Islam as they should be. However this resident and his friends are!

Jesse on September 22, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Wow! I am glad that everyone knows what happened with the owner of those Ihops. I thought that the records were sealed. Whatever happened to “Innocent until proven guilty”?

Val on September 27, 2011 at 12:28 am

This Blog is very racist and people on here should be ashamed of themselves. One blogger asks if this is an information site or a Muslim trashing site. It’s clear to me it is a Muslim trashing site. I’m glad to see there are clear headed Americans like Stephanie, Be Justice, Anne and Val who are not so quick to judge. It’s very interesting to me that such a large raid regarding the safety of our country has not been plastered all over the country. Debbie states that IHOP would have told her the name of the owner if the name had been Bob or Sherri. Then goes on to imply that Tarek had something to hide because he was going by a shortened version of his name. Really? I’m willing to bet that most men who go by Bob are truly named Robert. Richards go by Rick, James go by Jim and so on. So now we need to worry about people with nicknames??? Or is it ok if it’s an American name? Why is it that Debbie, who is all in the know, hasn’t posted a single fact since this happened? It’s been 6 days! Which by the way she was so quick to post accusations. She says that IHOP has told her that this is not a terrorist investigation then promptly says not to believe that B.S. She has the info from the FBI. As well as childishly and racially changing the name of IHOP. Grow up Miss Debbie. Just because 7 IHOPs are owned by Muslims does not mean they all are. I am not Muslim but I am glad this Muslim was able to own the IHOP and provide jobs for Americans. Debbie states that Tarek is cooperating and makes it out that he is only doing so because “he got caught”. Of course it can’t be that he is cooperating because he is willing to show them that he is innocent. Some of the posts on here are from employees of Tarek. They are not trashing him. Hmmm, could that be because he is a Good American? That he has earned their loyalty? But then I guess it’s a lot more exciting to assume the worst and be hateful. If there were such a concern for the security of America because of Tarek, then why have there been no arrests? I know this family and I am proud to stand by them as I believe in their innocence. No, I am not Muslim, nor am I Islamic. I was born and raised in this country and have many family members who have gone to war so the people in the other countries would be treated fairly. Then we turn around and treat them with suspicion in our country. This is not the way America is supposed to be. It would be nice if people truly knew the facts before spouting so many accusations and hatefulness.

Sherry on September 27, 2011 at 3:17 am

Who in God’s name do you think you are? It’s because of people like you that there is so much hate in this world. God is who we answer to and boy will you have alot of answering to do. Shame, shame, shame on you for taking away the food from the children of these families that probably won’t have a job anymore because of people like you. These employees of these IHOP’s need their job’s so that they can take care of their families. How could you love hate so much that it doesn’t bother you to know that a child may not be fed because of you or that a child might not have their daddy no more because of the lie’s that are being published. To all those that won’t go back to these restaurants, I wonder how many of you claim to be Christians. You know what, I am a Christian and I have different cultures in my family and I Love every one of them, unconditionally. I pray for you Debbie Schlussel and all others who have so much hate in them that it doesn’t bother them that they break a child’s heart. God forgive you.

yannes on October 29, 2011 at 4:09 am

I’m glad there’s a picture of debbie at the top of the blog wo everyone can see what a dumb blonde she is. That way they know not to take anything thats written here seriously.

Because otherwise this would be seriously offensive.

Ever heard of standards in journalism? This is a two-bit tabloid operation and all of you suckers that donate to this garbage are worse than money laundering terrorists.

No worries, you’ve already marginalized yourself and your website into ridiculous obscurity. You’re ignorance is your own worst enemy.
