The Return of the Abdrabbohs

Remember Fatina Abdrabboh? She was the young woman who wrote a rather silly column in the New York Times about how everybody was staring at her hijab one morning at the gym, but that her faith in America was restored when she dropped her keys on the treadmill and the gentleman behind her was kind enough to pick them up and hand them to her. Miracle of miracles, it was Albert Gore!

Well, the last name of Abdrabboh is back in the news today. Debbie Schlussel, writing in Front Page Mag discusses some of the plaintiffs in the ACLU's lawsuit attempting to find out who was wiretapped by the NSA:

I'm referring to ACLU lawyers Noel Saleh, Mohammed Abdrabboh, and Nabih Ayad, the ACLU Plaintiffs named in the yesterday's Complaint, attorney William Swor, a member National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and Nazih Hassan -- all named in the lawsuit. They are exactly the kind of people whom the federal government should be watching, but probably isn't. One of these men admitted to funding Hezbollah, one was accused of tampering with a witness, and a third signed a document contradicting statements he made in the lawsuit. Not to mention, one of these men engaged in exactly the same "spying" (on me) that he now opposes when done by the NSA.

Abdrabboh is heavily involved with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, which openly praises Hezbollah -- the terrorist group that murdered over 300 U.S. Marines and civilians in Lebanon. In the West Bank, Abdrabboh made a career of legitimizing Palestinian terrorists in his work for Al-Haq, the Palestinian version of the ACLU (only worse, if that's possible). In work for the United Nations, he co-authored a report on the "Syrian Golan." (The Golan is in Israel.) Clearly, this man has a political agenda, not friendly to the United States or our key Mideast ally.

Spying? Taping phone calls? Abdrabboh doesn't have a problem with that either, when he's the one doing it. On September 7, 2004, the same day he filed his phony grievance against me, Abdrabboh had one of his friends, a man identifying himself as "Casey Khalil" call me and try to entrap me in a taped phone call. But it didn't work. The man, whose number came up as "Khalil Companies" on my caller ID, claimed he was a client of Abdrabboh for his mortgage company's problems with the State of Michigan and wanted information on him.

The ACLU lawsuit claims:

88. The Program has inhibited communications between Mr. Abdrabboh and his family and friends because he is less candid about his political views and avoids saying things that are critical of the U.S. government over the telephone or through email.

Puh-leeze. Abdrabboh is a vocal member of the Michigan Civil Rights Commission, appointed by Michigan's left-wing Democrat governor, Jennifer Granholm. There was a meeting of his commission since the NSA program was disclosed in The New York Times, and he is as vocal as ever. All of these attorneys had a press conference in Detroit, yesterday, upon the filing of the suit. Contrary to being silenced, they couldn't seem to shut up.

Okay, let's see if we can connect the dots. Bingo.

“My mom told me I have to stay indoors,” says daughter Fatina, who explains that her parents were afraid for her physical safety right after the attacks. “And I was like, ‘I have to go to class.’ She goes, ‘No, you’re not going to class. You’re staying inside.’”

That’s because the headstrong college junior refused to take off her traditional Muslim head covering.

“Taking off your scarf is not gonna do anything but satisfy ignorance,” says Fatina. “And it doesn’t help anybody. It just satisfies them.”

“You know, I have unwavering loyalty to my country,” says son Mohammed. “And it just kind of hurts that people who would never question it before Sept. 11 seem to have a different attitude now.”

A proud Arab-American and a lawyer, Mohammed is disturbed by the fact that more than 1,000 men — mostly Middle Eastern — have been detained by U.S. authorities. He has more than 20 new clients now who have all been “invited” in for questioning.

Okay, so Fatina and Mohammed are brother and sister.

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
