Absurd But the Usual: US Taxpayers Financed Terrorist Zazi’s Financial Jihad

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s not the first time I’ve written about Muslims coming to America and committing financial jihad against American corporations and, ultimately, U.S. taxpayers and consumers.


Americans Financed Najibullah Zazi & His Terrorist Operations

For example, Nemr Ali Rahal and his wife, Rania Rahal–Shi’ite Muslim aliens from Lebanon and members of Hezbollah–used their Dearbornistan supermarket and house to commit mortgage fraud, real estate fraud, credit card fraud, bank fraud, etc., all designed to rip off Americans to the hilt (and all while they were apparently recruiting members for Hezbollah).

Now, in a little reported aspect of the story of recently arrested terrorist Najibullah Zazi, it appears he was committing a similar financial jihad against Americans.  And you financed it through the bank bailouts.

Karl Denninger of the Market Ticker noted this part of a New York Daily News story on the arrest:

Between 2005 and 2008, he opened credit card accounts with Bank of America, Chase, Capital One, Discover and Citibank and ran up a debt of more than $50,000.

When he filed for bankruptcy, Zazi said he hadn’t worked in two months.

Writes Denninger:

Hmmm…. $50,000 in credit card debt eh? Let me guess – this guy had a $200,000+ annual income? He was some sort of professional? Had a lot of money? That’s what you’d expect, right?

Uh, no. . . .

So we have a 25 year old Afghan immigrant, presumably here legally but probably not a naturalized citizen. He didn’t own his own business, he drove a delivery vehicle for a shuttle company. A decidedly pedestrian line of work, and one that doesn’t pay all that well (can you say “taxi driver”?)

Yet our banks – the ones that have received federal bailout money – gave this guy $50,000 worth of outstanding credit on multiple lines, which he all drew down and spent (presumably on whatever he was up to here) prior to filing bankruptcy. . . .

This is an OUTRAGE. Not only did this guy effectively stick the US Taxpayer with the $50,000 in debt it appears he may have been using the freaking money to plot some sort of terrorist attack as part of an Al-Quaida cell INSIDE THE UNITED STATES?


Sadly, what Karl Denninger notes isn’t just limited to the case of Najibullah Zazi, who was planning to blow up fashion shows and sporting events with backpacks full of explosives.

Nope, this is what goes on every single day all over Islamic America. All over Dearbornistan. And everywhere else. We easily grant fraudulently obtained credit to these people. We give them Medicaid, while they drive Hummers and Mercedes.

Not only won’t we crack down on our borders and whom we let in. We don’t crack down on them once they’re here.

And so it goes. Yesterday, Nemr Ali and Rania Rahal. Today, Najibullah Zazi. Tomorrow, Mohammed Tabbouli Al-Baba Ghanouche.

Yup, Lenin was right about us selling our enemies the rope on which to hang us. Except we’re financing that, too. And our enemies don’t have to lay out a penny. We’re essentially giving the rope away and helping them hoist our necks inside it.

If we “cracked down” on them once they arrived illegally, they wouldn’t be coming.

This is super pathetic for sure.

    goldenmike4393 – the unfortunate part about all of this is most of these people come here legally, but once here, they overstay their visas and break the law.

    I don’t understand that in today’s world why the U.S. doesn’t profile people and do thorough background checks on everyone who seems the slightest suspicious or who appear to have Muslim roots or come from predominently Muslim countries. It is a PRIVILEGE to enter the U.S., not a right or an open invitation to let anyone in who feels like coming here. You can call me a bigot if you like, but the people who have been commiting terrorist acts worldwide are almost exclusively Muslims. We should target all of them that try to enter the U.S., and those that are here should be monitored. Just go to the local mosque and take pictures and ID them. Hell, that is what the Justice Department and lefty groups are doing to us “Right Wing Extremists”.

      Jarhead: You’re way too nice, as usual!

      I would NOT allow any muzzie into this country. We know who they are and why they are here, why allow them?

      They have no “right” or privilege to come here. NOW GET OUT!

      goldenmike4393 on September 22, 2009 at 1:39 pm

        goldenmike4393: Yeah, I guess I am too nice of a guy. lol

        How about we give these Muslims who try to come into the country the “Pork Test”? We have a good ol’ pig pickin’ at the immigration station, with a pig on a spit rotating over some coals. If they are willing to go over and eat a nice big chunk of pork, they are allowed in. If not, they go home.

You’re going to have to crack down on the “legal” ones, just the same.

Philistines upon you, America.

Shy Guy on September 22, 2009 at 12:32 pm

The truth is nothing is going to change. I doubt even a Super 9/11 will be enough to shock Americans into taking action to save their country. If 3,000 Americans massacred one September morning in 2001 wasn’t enough to make it happen, what will? America’s Islamo-pandering can lead to no good result down the road.

There are many financial institutions that were bailed out that have one or more investment vehicles that are Sharia compliant.

One of the requirements these firms must meet to offer an investment that is Sharia compliant is called “Zakat”. That is supposed to be charity (or so we are told …). In reality many of these “charities” are terrorist fronts collecting money to be used by terrorists all over the world but mostly in Israel.

Many of the people who decide whether or not the investment is Sharia complaint are known to have relationships with either the so called “charities” or the terrorist organizations that get funded.

The “Holy Land Foundation” was one such charity (out of the way too many) that the feds were actually able to shut down and convict their leadership.

We are aiming our own guns at ourselves and don’t even realize it.

Yup…with the election of BO they got their ‘hope and change’ they needed to put our guard (or actually bowed down) down as demanded by our ‘fearless’ leader!

Yeah Right on September 22, 2009 at 4:57 pm

Does anyone know Zazi’s religion? Before you say “Duh!” check out the news reports!

Today, “Counter-terrorism officials are warning mass transit systems around the nation to step up patrols because of fears an Afghanistan-born immigrant under arrest in Colorado may have been plotting to detonate backpack bombs aboard New York City trains.”

Read the article:

Guess the religion!

There is NO Santa Claus on September 22, 2009 at 5:14 pm

They deliberately omit the religion. The only clue the media leaves is to tell you is where the person was born. The MSM is is both dishonest and manipulative in telling people about Islam. And yes – the details are relevant to the alleged crime.

NormanF on September 22, 2009 at 7:11 pm

With our present form of government and current leadership, I cannot see any improvement.

More likely, continued immigration, folowed by high birthrates, such that this country will be lost without a fight, just like the collapse of the Roman and British Empires.

What needs to be done now, will never be done.

How depressing………

Where do we start?

This guy is just a symptom of a greater problem with banking in the United States. It isn’t just limited to Muslims. Obviously he was bent on destroying us with the same financial institutions that easily give credit cards to illegals and people with wrecked credits. Again these are the people the banking industry lobbied for. They want illegals and others to get credit cards without verifying residency. You are right he worked a system but the system was created by the banks he defrauded because the banks knew we would bail them out.

Remember the late night infomercial dudes who said you can buy a house with no credit and no money. Carlton Sheets comes to mind. Just get tons of credit cards. Voila, you instantly have assets in the half million range.

Poor American tax payers! They even financed the war planes and tanks to a recognized international war crime country to kill a lot of innocent people. Now this is not $50,000. How about adding 5 more zeros to it?

Waht is new? on September 22, 2009 at 11:43 pm

“The ringleader of a multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud ring was sentenced this morning to 30 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections.

Uto Essien, 45, a Nigerian national, will be deported after completing his sentence.

Essien was convicted in July of four felony counts related to the use of shell corporations and false invoices to skim money off the top of nearly three dozen real estate transactions.”
