Blame it on Christmas: MSM, Detroit Free Press Lie About Shi’ite Muslim Murderer Ihab Maslamani; Falsely Claim He’s Christian

By Debbie Schlussel

Last week, I told you about Ihab Maslamani, the 17-year-old Shi’ite Muslim illegal alien from Lebanon, who stayed here illegally for 9 years, and just over a week ago, murdered pizza delivery guy Matthew Landry, robbed a bank, and carjacked more than one person (including Landry).  As I noted, the mainstream media refused to disclose his background or even spell his last name correctly.  Because I did on this site (and we were atop google all week for the story, where we remain as I write this), I pushed them into doing something . . . but not the right thing.


Ihab Maslamani: Contrary to MSM Reports,

He’s MUSLIM, NOT Chaldean

While the Detroit Newsistan and the Detroit non-Free Press finally spelled the guy’s name right and finally disclosed the news I broke well before them–that Maslamani is from Lebanon–they tried to pretend he’s a Christian, lying to readers.  It marks the first time in history that the Detroit Free Press–which constantly tries (via politically correct, deceitful editors Ritu Sehgal, Theresa Mask, and others) to shield Muslims in its news coverage of terrorism, cigarette smuggling, money-laundering, mortgage fraud, and bridge card fraud cases–has ever identified the religion of an Arab in a crime story (obviously to try to respond and obscure what I accurately reported, which tops that paper’s coverage on Google).  Oh, and they mentioned the WRONG religion.

The Freep lied,  telling readers that Maslamani is a Chaldean, an Iraqi Catholic, writing this:

Ihab Maslamani was a Christmas baby whose 17 years have been a chilling arc from childhood victim to icy predator. . . .  Maslamani was born into a Chaldean family on Dec. 25, 1991.

But that’s completely false–utter bunk.  In fact, court and social service documents back exactly what I was the first–and still the only one–to report to you:  Maslamani is a Shi’ite Muslim whose family is in Hezbollah.  The documents identify the mother who gave birth to  him (and later abandoned him) as Zeinab Hammoud, from the famous South Lebanese Shi’ite Muslim Hammoud family that is the bulwark of Hezbollah.  His family also spent time in Hezbollah-sponsor/terror host state Syria–not the place where there are any Chaldeans.  Court documents also identify Maslamani’s father, “Isam Masolmany” (spelled incorrectly again) as a terrorist on the run from Lebanon, where he was facing a death sentence.  (And Maslamani spent time with Shi’ite Muslim relatives in Dearbornistan–not the place where Chaldeans live–who facilitated his illegal alien stay here.)

Sorry, but there are no Chaldeans in Lebanon.  They’re in Iraq.  And there are no Chaldean terrorists on the run from Lebanon, where they face death sentences.  And there are no Chaldeans named Zeinab Hammoud.

Ihab Maslamani is a Muslim, whose family is in Hezbollah.  And he is an illegal alien who–as I noted–was coddled every step of the way by Ismael Ahmed, who headed the tax-funded, pan-Hezbollah ACCESS, the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services, which–according to its own documents–tried to get Maslamani a green card and shielded him from immigration authorities who would have deported him, and the same Ismael Ahmed, who now heads the Michigan foster care system, from which Maslamani constantly escaped and was never closely monitored despite a life of crime.


Ismael Ahmed: Extremist Muslim,

Medicaid Defrauder & Guy Who Failed w/Maslamani . . . TWICE

There is just one religion whose name fits in the Ihab Maslamani story:  Islam.  But, sadly, it’s the one religion the Detroit mainstream media go out of their way not to mention and to vehemently protect.

Interesting, though, how the Detroit Free Press went out of its way to lie and defame another religion:  Christianity–by mentioning the word Chaldean and claiming, falsely, that Maslamani comes from it.  Interesting, too, that they mention that this guy (who is MUSLIM) was born on Christmas.  So what?

He’s a M-U-S-L-I-M.  Do you think the Free Press would mention it, if Maslamani was born on Ramadan or Eid Al-Fitr?

The day on which he was born doesn’t have a thing to do with his life of crime and total disregard for non-Muslim, American lives.

His religion does.  And once again his religion is ISLAM.

Once again, good job. Funny they should try and slander Chaldeans, making him one of them. A Christian is a Christian but watch out for offending the islamic hordes.

Joe on August 18, 2009 at 12:28 pm

They don’t stop, do they? And people? Fall for it or they wouldn’t be spinning this murderous muzzie into a Christian.

There’s NOTHING Christian about him.

goldenmike4393 on August 18, 2009 at 12:36 pm

I don’t know if this was in the original, but the article now states:

“Maslamani was born into a Chaldean family on Dec. 25, 1991, but even that is clouded with uncertainty. Some court and state records reviewed by the Free Press place his family in Syria, others place them in Lebanon and Libya. One report even puts them in Liberia, a nation on Africa’s west coast.”

Isn’t it interesting that the Detroit Free Press is owned by Gannett Company, Inc.? Yes, the same Gannett Company that owns USA Today and various other liberal media sources. There doesn’t seem to be any conservative thought in this media giant. This is the same USA Today that published a story on the same bogus Bush National Guard documents that Dan Rather relied on for his story at CBS right before the ’04 Presidential election.

These liberal media outlets are a disgrace to what is supposed to be an objective and unbiased source of information. How many high ranking Dummycrats do you suppose are pulling the strings of these media sources and feeding them false stories to print? Yeah, I’m sure no one in the Odopey administration has anything to do with it. I’m soooo very confident that they aren’t told what to or not to print.

goldenmike4393 – you are right about the spin. I would really like to know who the source was that told the Detroit news outlets that this scumbag Muslim nutjob was a Chaldean? Guesses anyone?

Jarhead on August 18, 2009 at 1:54 pm

The mention of him being a “Christmas baby” is extremely bizarre. These liberal yellow “journalists” are literally melting down in psychosis from having to constantly lie and, most damaging to their psyches, having to actually think and write insane contradictions in fact, but pretend and interact as though nothing was wrong.

If you end up checking the facts at these 2 rags,leave a link to here,so people can read the truth.

    @nick, Hitler and son of sam we’re both crazy. But I don’t think either one of them was urged to do what they did by their Religion/Holy Book/ Priest or Rabbi!!

    RichieRich on January 21, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Sorry .menat the rags as
send em here fro the truth.

If I managed to “take back my country,” I would put every single Congress member from 1988 to present on trial for every single rape and murder that’s been perpetrated by illegal immigrants in this country. When convicted, as they clearly would be, the punishment would be to die like Mussolini.

The juvenile court documents from a psych evaluation state the following. This came from his court file in Wayne County Circuit Court.

“Isab Maslamani is a 15-year, 7-month old Chaldean American male.”

To Detroit Free Press Reporter Ben Schmitt: As you also know, the court report is wrong, and you chose not to mention his mother’s name, Zeinab Hammoud, a clearly Shi’ite Muslim name. As you also know, there are no Chaldeans in Lebanon. Regardless, your story really stresses the incorrect Christian thing, by starting out with a first sentence telling us he was born on Christmas. The whole thing is very interesting because the Freep goes out of its way to delete all references to Muslims, Islam, and even Hezbollah from all of its local crime and/or negative stories. Why did you go out of your way to stress this (incorrect) Christian religious claim? Why was it relevant? To respond to my article on Maslamani? Appears so. You even admit in your article that it really isn’t clear whether he’s Chaldean, so why put it in? Bottom line, Ihab Maslamani is a Shi’ite Muslim. Will you or the Freep correct your article online and print a correction? I’m not betting on it. DS

What Debbise said is the complete truth. He has relatives on both his mother’s and father’s sides that are members of the terrorist group Hezbullah. Actually one of them is in charge of an intelligece unit in that group and is very dangerous.

This guy 100% disgusts me. He is in no way a Christian. I’m not in any way saying that there aren’t all different walks of life in every religion, but to try and pin this on Christians to cover up who he truly is makes me completely mad. I believe that he deserves to rot in hell. You can try and tell me I’m not a true Christian for that, too. If you’d like. I believe so far that Islam is behind every terrorist attack thus far and our system is failing us every single day by not doing a thing about it. They are undeniably covering everything up and by doing so are protecting them. I am proud to be an American, don’t get me wrong. But it is past time to stand up and do something about it. Something far worse than 9/11 is brewing and it almost seems as though everything is being done to try and cover this up. We send soldiers overseas to fight, what about those of us left over here on American soil, who are being left open to such horrible things that happened to that pizza delivery guy. But, when you allow such corrupt people to have more power than they need or any power at all, I guess things such as this will occur. When will it end? When will someone finally stand up and say “Enough is enough.” When will someone take the much needed steps to delve deeper into where the problems really are and do something about it. A wise friend once told me “All terrorist should be skinned and let loose in the desert.” Thank you for letting me vent. -Daisy

Debbie, when my local paper describes wanted criminal suspects, they’ll say what they are wearing, facial hair, tatoos, size, etc., but rarely mention race, and only if they aren’t Black. I have to agree that telling a bunch of mostly Caucasian readers to look out for a Black guy is probably pointless, but we’ll never know unless we try. Also, I will no longer make reference to pretend dating you or beg for pictures. I have my pride, Debbie. Now that we have cleared that up, who are you dating instead of me?

Ihab Maslamani is a criminal who seems to have an inordinate number of supporters. His apparently Shiite family cared little for him, and he inevitably took a downward spiral.

Jarhead: goldenmike4393 – you are right about the spin. I would really like to know who the source was that told the Detroit news outlets that this scumbag Muslim nutjob was a Chaldean? Guesses anyone?

It is not only one source, there are sources. Officials, cops, politicians and what have you, are in bed with Muslim business men and restaurant owners. It seems to me that any of them will sell his own mother from a couple of FALAFEL.

Figure the rest America.

Daniel on August 18, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    “It seems to me that any of them will sell his own mother from a couple of FALAFEL.”

    You should go back to school – it’s for free! It should say: “It seems to me that any of them will sell their own mother for a couple of FALAFEL.”

Debbie, Ben Schmitt is a lost case, absolutely worthless as a reporter. He is better off working for Ahmadinejad’s government propaganda newspaper than any American newspaper.

Why do you have to say he is Moslem or Christian, he is a murderer,when an Illegal Mexican commits a crime do you say he catholic, why don’t you refer to Hitler as Christian or the Son of Sam as a Jew

Nick on July 10, 2010 at 10:54 pm

Yes, Christians, every day…people walk into post offices…people walk into post offices, they walk into schools, that’s what Columbine was. I mean, I could do this all day long. There are so many more examples of Christians — and I happen to be a Christian, that’s back to this notion of your idealizing Christianity in my mind, But Ihab is a Muslim. does it really matter. A killer is a killer and will go to Hell for it. Cristian, Muslim,Catholic, Jews all you kill you go to Hell repent or not

Selma Tuniya on September 18, 2010 at 7:31 am

@tuniya? Really? Christians every day are murdering people? Really? I’m sure there are some christian loons out there but to compare them to Murders commited every single day in the name of Islam?? Really? Why don’t you go comment on some website where brain dead morons like yourself actually believe that crap! More people are murdered in a single day in the name of Islam than have probably been killed in 20 years by the kind of random nutjobs you’re referring to.

RichieRich on January 21, 2011 at 3:55 pm

Debbie, wish you would edit out the above morons with their idiotic insights that sound like the flip side of Hezbollah. This is why I chose not to partipate lately. When you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas and it does nothing to help Israel’s position not to mention your own credibility.
