Women’s Mag Whitewashes (& Cheers) Hezbollah Spy

By Debbie Schlussel

I’ve often decried the dumb women’s magazines some of your wives, girlfriends, sisters, and daughters read.  These magazines are for morons with vaginas.  And so it goes with the latest issue of Marie Claire. Amid articles about, “The Orgasmic Potential Written All Over Your Face,” and “Is Outweighing Your Husband Hazardous to Your Marriage?” (they need a magazine to answer this question?!), November’s Marie Claire whitewashes and cheers on Nada Nadim Al-Aouar DeLaDurantaye Valley Prouty.  Remember Prouty, the illegal alien CIA/FBI agent who spied for her Hezbollah financier brother-in-law, indicted fugitive Talal Chahine?  She’s BAAAACK.  And a column I wrote for the New York Post about her is referenced and dissed.



Marie Claire’s Nauseating New Hero: Hezbollah Spy Nada Prouty

Prouty wrote a BS book, “Uncompromised: The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of an Arab American Patriot in the CIA,” proving what we already know:  that there is no shortage of chutzpah in America, and that there is especially no shortage of chutzpah among Arabs in America. No shortage of rich fertilizer either. But, hey, it works, as evidenced by the 15 raving reviews for Prouty’s book by some of the most moronic and gullible Americans alive. That quote about the birthrate of suckers was conservative. I personally am waiting for the book, “Uncompromised:  The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of an American Patriot in Haute Cuisine” by The Ghost of Jeffrey Dahmer, but that’s not the segment of America that’s in the chutzpah biz.  I’m not quite sure how spying for your Hezbo family members and pleading guilty to accessing the FBI database on their behalf (as well as naturalization fraud), then crying “I Wuz Robbed!” comprises either “redemption” or “patriot[ism].”

The book and her associated publicity tour is an attempt to whitewash herself and the fact that she illegally accessed the FBI database to feed Chahine the details of the federal investigation of his money-laundering to Hezbollah from his Mid-East restaurant chain.  And women’s magazine, Marie Claire, is helping Prouty do the whitewashing.  The magazine is upset that a New York Post column I wrote references Prouty as “Jihad Jane,” when that’s exactly what she is and more.

As you’ll recall, last year, Prouty’s lawyer, Mark Zaid, got her on “60 Minutes,” where CBS News’ Scott Pelley did her bidding and whitewashing.  Pelley presented a picture of her brother-in-law with the late Hezbollah leader, Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, and she claimed she didn’t know who it was.  (Zaid also threatened to sue me, but never has because he has no case–she did everything I’ve accused her of . . . and pleaded guilty to most of it.)  As I’ve previously pointed out on this site, if you are a counterterrorism agent and you don’t know who the head of one of the world’s three biggest Islamic terrorism groups is, you should be fired for incompetence.  It’s impossible for Prouty, a Hezbollah native and sister-in-law of Hezbollah’s chief American financier, not to know of Fadlallah.  It’s like an American music fan in the 1980s claiming not to know who Michael Jackson is.  She knew exactly who Fadlallah was and lied about it.  The rest of Pelley’s segment was equally appalling, with him presenting this Hezbollah spy and immigration and marriage fraud perpetrator as some sort of American Arab patriot.  She’s playing the same card in a ridiculous “interview” with writer Abigail Pesta in the November 2011 issue of Marie Claire, blaming her prosecution on the fact that she’s an “Arab-American.”  Total bullcrap.

Even more sickening is the fact that Marie Claire NEVER mentions the essential facts:  that Prouty’s brother-in-law was Chahine, who was indicted for money-laundering over $21 million to Hezbollah;  that Prouty accessed on more than one occasion the FBI database to inform her brother-in-law on the status of the agency’s (and other agencies’) Hezbollah investigation;  and that she pleaded guilty to doing so.  None of this is mentioned.

Instead, the magazine presents a different to the airheaded women who read it:  that Prouty was a poor college student who was forced to commit immigration fraud so she could stay in the U.S. or be forced into an arranged marriage, that she went on to become a patriotic FBI and CIA agent who helped stop terrorism (she didn’t–she, in fact, helped her brother-in-law, a major terrorism funder–know when to flee the US), and that people who didn’t like Arabs went after her strictly for the marriage fraud.

Reality check:  Prouty’s brother-in-law, Chahine, was a multi-millionaire who could have given her the money to stay in college.  This wasn’t about that.  It was about staying in the U.S. and doing it the quick and easy way:  phony marriage.  In fact, Chahine was the one who apparently provided the fraudulent marriage partners–men who were supposedly cooks or dishwashers in his restaurant chain–for Prouty and another Lebanese Arab woman.  There is no evidence that Prouty ever stopped any terrorists, but the people and places she named in the “60 Minutes” interview were all Sunni.  She, a Druze Arab, was allied with Shi’ite Muslims–her sister (who converted to Shia Islam) and her brother-in-law, Chahine, Hezbollah’s top American money man.  She was doing their bidding in helping bring down Sunnis.  In terms of fighting terrorism, I’d love to know how it’s “fighting terrorism” or “patriotic” to tip off America’s top Hezbollah donor that the feds were on to him and how far along they were, enabling him to flee the country at just the right time.  Remember, Hezbollah is the group that murdered over 300 U.S. Marines and Embassy officials in Beirut.  And it worked with Al-Qaeda to target Americans in blowing up the Khobar Towers and setting up IEDs in Iraq.  And Prouty helped their top American sugar daddy, while she had a gun and a badge and was supposed to be working for the U.S. government.

Here is the Marie Claire Magazine interview, in case you need to vomit and don’t have ipecac available. Note that above it is a picture of a poor African Muslim woman walking through the desert looking for water (hey whatta coincidence!):

You should note that this same issue of Marie Claire contains an article that blames violence by women in August’s U.K. riots on their boyfriends and poverty. PUH-LEEZE. Yup, for Marie Claire, women are never violent and they’re never spies for Islamic terrorist groups, betraying America. It’s always everyone else’s fault.

If you find this farce of an “interview” as disgusting as I do, tell Marie Claire (owned by Hearst Magazines–hey, maybe they have Patty Hearst/SLA Stockholm Syndrome) what you think about whitewashing an agent for Islamic terrorists as some sort of “American patriot” and victim of “discrimination.” E-mail:, which is the address given in the magazine’s letters to the editor page.

Here are some documents Marie Claire wants us to ignore. Does this sound like an “American patriot done wrong” and “discriminated against for being Arabic” to you?

Marie Claire must be watched. They are cheering on these stupid and dangerous dopes more and more lately. I am keeping a keen eye on them (I have yet to see the November issue) because they act like they are above all the “celebrate your slutty vagina” crap these rags print up each month yet they still “celebrate skanky vaginas” as well try to seem so internationally Liberal and above it all by printing vomit like this. They are a big supporter of that freak Amy Waldman you quite rightly took to task a few months back.

I try to “read” all these dumb rags to see what effluvia they spread and most, just as you said, are for morons with vaginas. I usually end up looking at the pictures and wonder how in 2011 THIS is all magazines have to contribute to the rotting culture and the rotting female role in society. If there were a TRUE feminism, the feminazis should be outraged. BUT MC tries to play cute. I think they are in love with the concept of “creeping sharia”.

I will NEVER forget the March 2011 Vogue’s puff piece on Asma Assad of Syria. It bothers me that even NOW they would prolly still print that waste of paper for their beauty-obsessed and brain-dead consumers who couldn’t tell the difference between Sephora and Syria if it depended on a lifetime of FREE “La Mer” creme.

Glorifying Prouty and trashing Cain in a presser. All in a day’s work for our media.

Hey, they know which side they’re on.

Low-life scumbags. Journalism, our own Debbie Schlussel excepted, bears a close resemblance to the world’s second oldest profession.

Truth is not their stock in trade, its sleaze.

And its vile and disgusting!

Terrific article and nicely written Debbie, I remember Ms. Prouty being a spy for a islamic-terrorist group while working for the CIA a number of years ago. At the time when that story broke a decade ago, I heard and seen it on the news, but about a decade ago, I wasn’t into politics and/or world events. This woman (Nada Prouty) sounds very shady and she’s writing a book and expects us with a brain to take her serioulsy? And add insult to injury, Marie Claire is covering up and ignoring all of the negative stuff she did when she was CIA here before she was fired by them for being a islamist spy!

Who publishes Marie Claire? Is there any Arab money behind the publishing house?

And who would read magazines that write articles about how to give your vagina that “new car smell?”

JEG: Hearst Magazines, as I note toward the bottom of the post. DS

    Jon, I’m sure you’ve seen the Allred presser today.

    Liberals used to say what happened between two consenting adults was a “private matter.”

    Now its alleged rape.

    What really bothered me was after it allegedly happened, the woman went to her alleged harrasser/possible sexual assailant to ask him to help her get a job.

    I think if someone does something immoral/borderline criminal, the last thing on earth a woman would do is go that person to get assistance with her career.

    And if you are forced to have unwanted sex, its rape – a felony. Why weren’t charges filed?

    It smells of a political hatchet job and as Debbie pointed out the other day, if men harrass and molest women, this doesn’t suddenly happen in their 40s.

    With Cain, this plays on the oldest American meme, the fear of what an oversexed black man can do a white woman. And I thought we put race behind us with the election of Obama.

    I was naive.

    From my understanding, Marie Claire in the U.S. is published by Hearst – which is also involved with HOprah magazine.

Lovely folks, these. But we shall still triumph against those who rape little girls.

There’s an interesting reference to Prouty in Ronen Bergman’s “The Secret War with Iran”. (Bergman is a security and intelligence analyst with Israel’s Yediot newspaper.) It involves creation of a sleeper cell in Montreal connected to master terrorist Imad Mughniyeh.

“Officials in the United States, Canada, and Israel worked together to gather evidence against the new cell in 2005. The operation was dubbed “Double-Edged Sword,” and it continued for several months, with hopes that the men could soon be arrested. But precisely when enough incriminating information accumulated to make that possible, in the late summer of 2005, all of the suspects vanished into thin air. They left their homes and jobs abruptly. Operation Double-Edged Sword was blown. The Israelis and the Americans are convinced that someone from inside the investigation must have tipped off the terrorists.” (p.211)

Bergman then introduces Prouty and notes information she passed on to Hizbullah helping some of the suspects to escape, as Debbie has well documented. Then there’s this: “In both Israel and the United States, intelligence circles were convinced that Prouty was not alone, and that within the system … a far more dangerous mole was at work, passing information to the sleeper cells.” (p.212)

We may not yet have a full picture of Prouty’s activities.

Everytime I see a story about Prouty I wonder how it was she was hired by the FBI and CIA in the first place given the prominence of her direct rel;atives in major terrorist organizations… and I’m afraid of the answer.

I am getting sick of this “conservative” radio talk show host Jim Bohanon – self-styled conservative, yet provides gracious interviews with Grover Norquist and Nada Prouty… and yet, also the Center for Security Policy Frank Gaffney – and on the one hand the radio talk show host sort of decries the Muslim Brotherhood (or so he says) and on the other hand he give Nada Prouty a free pass on any hard questions. Just as Sibel E. was an asset for the group that financed 9/11, and played cards delat to her politically for her handlers. Wonder what Rita Katz has to say about all this.

A: HUH? Rita Katz supports a Palestinian state and obeyed her liberal Jewish hosts when she spoke at an event for the Detroit Jewish Welfare Federation and wouldn’t answer questions about Rashid Khalidi because she got paid thousands of dollars. Who cares what she has to say about this? She knows nothing about it and is compromised. I’ve said what needs to be said here. I’m the expert on this topic, no one else. Jim Bohannon is no conservative and why are you still patronizing his show by listening? DS

Her last name Prouty – I have always wondered about a possible connection to Fletcher Prouty, he’d be spinning in his grave.
