HUH? Detroit News Endorses Hezbollah Muslim for Judge “B/c He Speaks Arabic & is Lebanese”

By Debbie Schlussel

As more and more Muslims enter America and have a gazillion kids, you will see more and more ridiculous endorsements of them as they run for office across America and seek the power to change our Western way of life. And so it goes with the Detroit News’ endorsement of a judicial candidate on the sole grounds that he speaks Arabic.

I’ve written many times before on this site about sleazebag Detroit News Editorial Page Editor Nolan Finley, who turned the Detroit News editorial page from one of the most recognized conservative opinion pages in America (under his classy predecessor Thomas Bray) into the playground of open Muslim anti-Semitism. Finley welcomed to his pages Imam Mohammed Elahi, Ayatollah Khomeini’s former Navy imam, making him the first open Iran/Hezbollah agent columnist for a newspaper in North America. And Finley regularly published Elahi’s vile, Third-Reich-esque attacks on Jews. Finley published columns by anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist Mohammed Alomari, author of books and articles attacking the United States’ very existence as a “Zionist plot” and denouncing the Bush administration for having too many Jewish employees. The petty, insecure Finley also wrote an editorial attacking me for 1) having more success and recognition than he does and 2) coining the accurate term, “Dearbornistan.” (Then, the morons who run Detroit-area Orthodox Jewish school, Akiva Hebrew Day School, honored this schmuck, Finley, with the Lover of the Jewish People award. Katz told me, “well, we live in a Muslim city, and that’s the best we can do. And don’t you dare quote me on that.”) Now, Finley is at it again with more of his idiocy. He endorsed a Hezbollah-supporting Shi’ite Muslim, Adel Harb, for Wayne County Circuit Court Judge for the sole reason that Harb, “as a native of Lebanon, is a fluent Arabic speaker, a skill that could be useful.



Detroit Newsistan Pan-Arabist Nolan Finley (Left) Endorses Hezbollah’s Adel Harb “For Speaking Arabic”

HUH? HUH? HUH? We live in the United States of America. We speak English (for now). Judicial proceedings are in English (for now). NOT Arabic. Wayne County is the most populated county in Michigan. It is where Detroit and Dearbornistan are located. As an attorney, I’m in the courthouse with some frequency. There are plenty of Arab litigants there, and guess what? All Michigan courts have the ability to use interpreters. Most litigants in that courthouse are NOT Arabs, and the vast majority of them ONLY speak English. We do NOT elect judges on the basis of languages, other than English, that they speak! Saying he’s a good choice because he’s from Lebanon and speaks Arabic is a euphemistic way of saying the real reason they endorsed him: he’s Muslim.

Let me tell you about Adel Harb. He’s a Shi’ite Muslim who supports Hezbollah and Iran, hates Israel, and is an all-around extremist. Harb is a donor to the Arab American PAC (AAPAC), which is run by the likes of Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad (who committed marriage and immigration fraud, is a member of the PFLP terrorist group, and openly supports HAMAS and Hezbollah) and Hezbollah agent Osama Siblani, whose family members work for Al-Manar a/k/a Hezbollah TV. AAPAC endorsed a candidate for Congress who flew a swastika outside his home and whose campaign literature openly attacked the Jews. Adel Harb was a guest of honor at a recent anti-Israel rally held by Lebanese Shi’ite Muslims, at which Siblani called on attendees to vote for Harb for judge.

Oh, and Adel Harb is proud of the support he’s getting from Azzam Elder, the deposed Palestinian Muslim, who is part of a giant Muslim-dominated corruption scandal in Wayne County, Michigan, which I told you about on this site a while ago. He was Deputy Wayne County Executive and orchestrated a scam to give a Shi’ite Muslim crony, Turkia Awada Mullin, $200,000 in taxpayer money. He is currently under FBI investigation for his part in the scam, including document fraud. His support of Harb is yet another major reason why Harb should NOT be endorsed by any newspaper. But the language and birthplace thing is just ridiculous as a reason to endorse anyone for office . . . any office in the United States.

That the Detroit Newsistan–and, yet again, you know why I call it that–would endorse a candidate because he was born in an Arab Muslim country and speaks Arabic (or any language aside from English), is beyond absurd. There are plenty of Arabs who were born in Lebanon and speak Arabic, living in our midst. That doesn’t make them qualified to be judges. And in many cases, the backward extremist views that brings–as with Adel Harb–is the very reason they should NEVER be elected to anything.

Anyone who still thinks the Detroit News Editorial Page is conservative (and it ceased to be in 2000, when Finley got Bray fired so he could get the job), is just plain vacant. Just like Nolan Finley and his incompetent, stale, old deputy, Jeffrey Hadden, who together made this absurd endorsement.

If you live in Michigan’s Wayne County, DO NOT vote for Adel Harb.

OMG! Why would he support a M U Z Z I E ?

How much money was exchanged?

What’s next? Is Finley going to endorse stupid people for judge because stupid people end up in court?

Fred Taub on July 31, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Fred – I was thinking a little bit like you did. I think that next he will be endorsing mobsters for judge. Hey, they may even speak Italian …

Debbie, thanks for the article maam, to me this sounds like “Affirmative Action”, the Detroit News is endorsing this crazy, religious nut-bag judge because he’s from Lebanon, speaks fluent arabic (I know you speak, read and write fluent arabic Debbie) and a “muslim” and yes, he’s also a jew-hating anti-semite as you pointed out in this piece DS!

This judge doesn’t sound qualified for the job, if heaven-forbid during the course of a lawsuit or so, where a muslim involved in the case, the judge will probably introduce islamic dogmatic policies for the muslim client(s)? You never know, but that’s my assumption.

I agree with Sean R. It kind of reminds me of races where Blacks (of course not Black Republicans) run for office and 99% of Black voters vote for them because they are Black — like Obama. The Detroit News seems to be accepting the same type of mentality for Muslims — as long as they are the right nationality and religion, with minimal political credentials, i.e. not being against CAIR, etc., they are fine.

Kudos to Debbie, once again, for revealing the jihadist sympathies that lie underneath so much of what passes for “conservatism.” I’d liked the Detroit News in the Nineties when Tom Bray was at the helm; his daughter wrote some pretty good bylines back then, too. Maybe I was too engrossed in my work, but I wasn’t aware Bray was overthrown in a Nolan Finley-orchestrated coup. No wonder the News has fallen fast since! Finley and allies are a truly dreadful bunch.

Seek on July 31, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Aside from the fact that judges should be selected for judicial wisdom and fairness – not “special skills” – this scumbag Finley must hope that when the great American Jihad comes about, he’ll be spared beheading by them. Personally, I think these useful idiot muslim cheerleaders will be the first to go.

DS_ROCKS! on July 31, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Ummm….don’t courts have TRANSLATORS for people who don’t speak English? I’m actually more concerned about what “decades of varied experience” is supposed to cover up. Should we elect judges in the southwest US because they’re Latino and speak Spanish?

Sean M on July 31, 2012 at 3:43 pm

DS I wonder if the lefty rag The Detroit News will endorse YOU for Judge since you speak fluent Arabic…”a skill that could be useful”. That means they would endorse YOU by means of their sole preference. You’d have my vote!

The Mooooooooslim pandering just gets more and more nauseating.

How many times have you heard the disgusting ball-less words…” …And don’t you dare quote me on that.” That also makes me disgusted. No wonder why you fight as you do. You live in a weak world where others are too character-less and wimpy to join you to fight the good fight. It becomes more clear everyday!

In a micro sense I knew of this mentality years ago but to see it in a macro sense really upsets and disturbs me. I’m glad you do what you do!

Skunky on July 31, 2012 at 4:57 pm

If that’s a qualifier, why not hold out for a judge that speaks Farsi?

P. Aaron on July 31, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Debbie you are the cutest person ever. However I am a bit hurt that you come down here on business and don’t drop by and kick it at casa A1. I’ll collect you at the airport, take you to a Glatt Kosher/ Chalav Yisroel/ Shomer negiah/ reasonably priced felafel joint, and then show you my most prized Jewish possession at my pad. And don’t worry Debbie my hood is safe and my mezuzahs are in good working order.

A1 on July 31, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    A1, you scum, you can’t even get hookers. I’m surprised your mezuzahs don’t melt when you walk by.

    skzion on July 31, 2012 at 7:52 pm

      LOL, not bad. Except I would’ve told him that he couldn’t get AIDS.

      Statusmonkey on July 31, 2012 at 11:53 pm


Kudos for reporting these events that get ignored by most everyone else.

I’ll reiterate a point I made yesterday in your blog about Romney; Where is the Christian Right when truly dangerous things like this are occuring? Why aren’t they raising A LOT more commotion over Finleyesque dhimmis surrendering our nation to Islamists? Why aren’t they up in arms when fellow “conservative Republicans” get into bed with Arabists and Islamists?

It’s truly unfortunate that “Jews” such as Katz have surrendered.

Third World immigration to this country must be dramatically reduced to ONLY people GENUINELY facing persecution and who DON’T pose a threat to the US.

Scott on July 31, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Scott, I am not sure why you are seeing only this problem with the “Christian Right” and Conservative Republicans. 11 years after 9/11 is seems the majority of US citizens (and others who are not citizens) are on total “walkabout” when it comes to Mooooooooslims and dhimmitude.

    In fact lately, I have been quite alarmed at how many so-called Conservatives are totally out to lunch. That is why we have Mitt Zombie. We had a good chance but not enough to get someone else other than the Republican establishment pick.

    Also, the so-called conservatives who are suppose to know better have Mohammed Zudhi Jasser and Walid Shoebat and other frauds on their shows. If you ask me the whole country is being either zoomed or are pandering to Mooooooslims. Even the host who I have heard be most real about Islam tempers his words a bit…which neuters his intent. (Jim Quinn)

    Brett Winterble just said that he thinks “somebody got to Issa” regarding “Fast & Furious” (because he seems on walkabout too!). If he was reading this site more religiously he’d know that his assertion is a big laugh…I have been saying for years Issa is doing the rope-a-dope…from stuff I have learned HERE! He’d find out what a Syria & Lebanon supporter Jihad Darrell is and he’d be able to put it alllllllll together. But nope, they wanna keep thinking of the sunny side of the street.

    And the proles of Kardashian Nation haven’t a CLUE about the Islamic threat and many would be cowed by PC sensibilities anyway. So I see your query more broad than you presented it.

    And the reality is depressing.

    Skunky on July 31, 2012 at 10:03 pm


      I mentioned the Christian right and conservatives because those are the groups who should be expected to be sounding the alarm, and if they’re not,then you have to wonder who will.

      As Debbie has pointed out,there’s no shortage of dhimmi conservatives who are flopping into bed with Islamists with money to throw around.

      As far as someone “getting” to Issa, with his criminal and sleazy business background,he’s probably someone who’d be easy to “get to” by blackmail.

      Scott on July 31, 2012 at 11:48 pm

        Agreed Scott. It’s depressing to see our side so wimpy.

        Skunky on August 1, 2012 at 12:01 am


Kudos for reporting these events that get ignored by most everyone else.”

Amen, Scott.

Interesting, and significant, that the surname “Harb” is Arabic for war, as in dar ul-harb (house of war), which is the Muslim term for those parts of the world where Muslims do not yet rule, and where warfare must be waged until Islam is victorious. Muslims view us infidels as “harbis,” or peoples who must be fought against and conquered. At the rate we are going, Muslims need not resort to armed combat to destroy our civilization – unrestricted Muslim immigration, high birth rates, and stealth jihad (e.g. election of Muslim politicians and judges, and non-Muslim politicians pandering to growing and increasingly influential Muslim constituencies) will ultimately accomplish this without a shot being fired.

So, Debbie, who would YOU endorse for 3rd Circuit Court? Do you agree with DetNews on Gillis? Then there is: Somers; Sullivan; Whitaker; Braxton; Cox; Hathaway; Mitchell; Morrow; and Ramsey…?

Dot in Michigan on August 1, 2012 at 9:48 am

    DS – Or how about judges for 6th District in Oakland: Christ; Housey; McDonald; Pernick; Sakwa…?

As long as Americans sit there on their asses and have a circuitous talk about this freedom and this freedom with out any qualifications, they will wake up one day and find themselves without any freedom at all. Muhammad knew he was garbling junk. The only way his cult can grow is through births. That is why he encouraged his followers to marry two, three four and more wives just to spned their time screwing around and creating babies who grow up to be closed minded Moslems. If Americans do not wake up this will be repeated here in America.

New Jersey’s “conservative” governor has also appointed Muslim Jihadist-supporting judges to the state bench.

This is no accident. Muslim lawyers will continue to play on American political-correctness to be appointed or elected to various benches. This is a career path to Federal appointments and will reach its conclusion when a pro-sharia Muslim is appointed Attorney General or to the SCOTUS. Think about it: If your goal is to replace the constitution with sharia law, what better career path can you choose than being an attorney?

Phil on August 1, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Gov. Chris Christie is an enigma. He’s a decent guy, knows economics and stands up to New Jersey’s public-sector unions. But like the closet liberal he really is, he wants to be seen as “fair.” And if fairness means giving an aggrieved minority a place at the proverbial table, he’ll cave in. Muslims, perpetually aggrieved, are natural candidates to win over his sympathy. Hence, they get appointments.

    S: There is NOTHING decent about Chris Christie. Wake up. He’s for HAMASniks, Sharia judges, global warming, and limiting our Second Amendment right. Hey, sounds like Obama minus the tan . . . plus 450 pounds. DS

Ya know, from what I’ve seen of our Judges, they make their living making children Fatherless simply because that is what the other parents petitions the court for. From what I’ve heard about the Muslims, they don’t go for that nonsense and thus, I’m not so sure I wouldn’t vote for this guy. The Judges we have currently certainly aren’t doing the Father-Child relationship any favors.

ThrownAwayDad on August 1, 2012 at 1:44 pm

What is it with this country that our so called “leaders” are so mezmerized with this Islamist bullsh^t? when will the people rise up and say enough? or am I just dreaming?

Gene on August 1, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Great article, Debbie! Thanks for keeping us informed!

Dave on August 2, 2012 at 4:04 am

Thanks to your hateful articles and your spread of hatred, people are DEAD tonight in Wisconsin. You have blood on your hands Debbie.

I implore everyone reading these articles to think twice about how spreading this kind of hatred is affecting YOUR life. Imagine if you had been waking past that TEMPLE. WHICH IS NOT EVEN MUSLIM. Or imagine your children were walking past it.


Your spewing of hatred is a complete disgrace. Stop blaming muslims for all of your problems. Muslims have spent the last few weeks praying 5 times a day. AMERICANS are killing AMERICANS. All thanks to their hatred and ignorance.

Forget civil war in the Middle East. The United States is in the midst of a civil war.

I would be ashamed to be American on this day.

God Bless America.
