Michigan: Muslim doctor gets 45 years for poisoning 500+ victims, netting $35M in medicaid scheme

The Muslim Chemo Doc Called ‘Most Egregious Fraudster’ in U.S. History should have been facing manslaughter or murder charges. via Dr Farid Fata who scammed millions of cancer patients is jailed for 45 YEARS | Daily Mail Online.

A doctor who netted millions of dollars by putting more than 500 patients through unnecessary and grueling cancer treatments and then billing insurers has been sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Dr Farid Fata, who worked in suburban Detroit, Michigan, poisoned around 550 victims – many of whom did not actually have cancer – by giving them excessive chemotherapy and other treatments.

His actions wrecked his patients’ health, with many sustaining chronic health problems such as brittle bones and fried organs. Other victims lost their homes and jobs, and were forced into bankruptcy.

‘He preyed on our trust, our exhaustion, our fears,’ said Ellen Piligiam, whose late father, a doctor, was administered powerful drugs he didn’t need for a tumor in his shoulder.

Federal prosecutor Catherine Dick had asked for a 175-year prison sentence. ‘It is not mob justice. It is appropriate for this crime,’ the prosecutor told the judge, referring to the extraordinary request.

However, Fata’s defense team had sought 25 years for the disgraced doctor, saying he had been abandoned by his family – who are no longer in the U.S. – and had not been visited since his arrest.

Outside court, many former patients were disappointed with the punishment, deeming it too short.

‘Prosecutors did a fantastic job – and he got 45 years. It’s a lifetime sentence for the rest of us,’ said Monica Flagg, 53, who was treated for cancer before doctors examining a broken leg found she had no cancer. ‘What about all the grave markers out there that all the victims’ families have to look at?

Liz Lupo, meanwhile, held a picture of her mother, Marianne Lupo, who died in 2007 at age 62.

She believes Fata’s treatments hastened her death. ‘It’s not justice at all,’ Lupo said.

Another woman tearfully told ClickOnDetroit.com: ‘It just wasn’t enough.’

The government identified 553 victims of Fata’s crimes, including one man who lost both of his legs due to excessive treatment. Meanwhile, Medicare and insurance firms paid out millions.

Fata’s clinic, Michigan Hematology Oncology, had seven offices in the Detroit area and a related business that performed tests to look for cancer. Testifying for the government, two experts from Harvard medical school said they were troubled after looking at a small portion of patient files.

The court heard Fata administered ‘stunning’ doses of a powerful, expensive drug to his patients, exposing them to life-threatening infections. According to Dr Dan Longo, a Harvard medical professor, a drug called Rituximab can weaken the immune system if overused on patients.

It’s typically given eight times for aggressive lymphoma.

One patient got it 94 times. Another got it 76 times.

There were more than 9,000 unnecessary infusions or injections.

‘There is an aggressive approach to treating cancer,’ said Dr Longo.

‘This was beyond. This was over the top. It’s a stunning number of injections of that drug.’

According to federal prosecutors, Dr. Fata, of Oakland Township, ‘systematically defrauded Medicare by submitting false claims for services that were medically unnecessary.’ He apparently defrauded the federally funded healthcare program out of roughly $35million over a two-year period.

Fata will get credit for about two years served in custody since his arrest in 2013.

His stay in the federal prison system also could be shortened with good behavior.


He actually pled guilty to $91M Medicare fraud.

 

Michigan: Dearborn Heights Police Adopt Sharia Law for Booking Muslim Criminals Wearing Hijabs

via Dearborn Heights Police Update Policy On Dealing With Women In Hijabs « CBS Detroit. h/t TROP

DEARBORN HEIGHTS (WWJ/AP) – The Dearborn Heights Police Department has a new policy on booking and photographing people who wear religious head coverings.

The policy went into effect Monday with a U.S. District Court judge’s order. The change comes after Malak Kazan filed a federal lawsuit in January.

Kazan said she was forced to remove her hijab, a traditional Muslim head scarf, in the presence of men during booking and while in custody after being arrested last year in Dearborn Heights for driving with a suspended license.

As part of Muslim beliefs, the hijab — which, unlike the niqab or burka, covers the hair and neck but not the face — must be worn when in the presence of any males who are not family members.

Must be? According to whom? What?

According to the updated policy, a female officer will stand present while the arrestee removes her hijab if requested. The policy also states that the removal will be done in a private area, if possible, and photographs will be taken with the hijab both on and off.

With no men present. Next step, no kuffar present.

Attorney Amir Makled told the Detroit News it “could be the model policy” for other communities. He filed the lawsuit on Kazan’s behalf.

Sharia should not be a model policy for any community in the U.S. If you want to live under sharia law, go to a sharia-dominant country.

Meantime, a similar lawsuit was filed in neighboring Dearborn last month. In that case, Maha Aldhalimi said she was forced to remove her hijab in the presence of several male officers while in custody for an unpaid parking violation.

Aldhalimi said she was crying while explaining that removing the scarf in front of male strangers would violate her religious beliefs, and that she finally agreed to remove it under threat.


She wasn’t crying when she broke the laws that got her arrested though. 

Michigan: Non-citizen arrested in Dearborn, accused of being serial rapist

Diversity alert, via Dearborn man charged in Detroit sexual assault cases is facing more charges. h/t Dee

DETROIT (WXYZ) – Ali Nasser Alriashi, 31, continues to remain behind bars accused of raping several women in southwest Detroit over the last four months.

Alriashi went before a judge Thursday morning to learn he’s being charged with one count of first degree criminal sexual conduct, felony firearm possession and one count of kidnapping.

These three new charges are in addition to the ones he faced earlier this week.

The sexual conduct and kidnapping charges both carry maximum life sentences.

His bond for these three charges was set at $750,000 cash.

The judge also told Alriashi during his arraignment that he can’t have any contact with his alleged victims and she also had another message for him. She said that she received information that he is not a U.S. citizen. So, if bond is posted, Alriashi’s passport would have to be surrendered.

Police say Allriashi has been preying on women in southwest Detroit in an area just south of Springwells.

We’re told he’s a father and husband, but when we tried to reach his family, they did not come to the door of their Dearborn home.

Alriashi is due in court next week for his probable cause hearing.

 

Comcast pimps “It’s Ramadan” commercials in U.S. as Muslims go on worldwide Ramadan killing spree

“The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers.”

its-ramadan

In many other zip codes around the world, Muslims are killing as many as possible during Ramadan. via Dearborn company’s Ramadan commercial casts new light on Muslims – News – Press and Guide.

It isn’t every day that you see positive images of Muslims on television. But this Ramadan, a new commercial is changing that.

The Ramadan commercial aims to show the real image of everyday American Muslims and a glimpse into their lives during Ramadan. Dearborn company Piximotion created the first-of-its-kind commercial with Comcast.

“A part of the message is to show that Islam is very diverse,” said Wissam Bazzi, of Dearborn Heights and founder of Piximotion. “Islam in the mainstream media is not the only perspective.”

The 30-second clip features Muslims of various backgrounds, including scenes of families gathering for iftar, the time to break fast. The commercial highlights thankfulness, discipline and family as some of the key components of what makes Ramadan a special time for Muslims.

The commercial, which can be viewed at http://www.itsramadan.org, ends with the message: “It’s Ramadan. A month of human values. From your Muslim friends and neighbors, happy Ramadan.”

Bazzi said the project shows the humanity of Muslims, and Ramadan is a great time to do that.

The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers. More than $5,000 in funds for the commercial were raised through crowdfunding site LaunchGood and about $25,000 were raised altogether. Bazzi said the interest was so great that people even stopped into his office to support the project.

“It’s a beautiful effort of our whole community coming together. The unification of so many different individuals,” Bazzi said.

Supporters will be glad to hear that the project doesn’t end when Ramadan does. Bazzi said they are planning for a bigger commercial next year.


If the start of Ramadan is any indication, humanity is non-existent among followers of Islam. But hey, “It’s Ramadan!”

Create your own “It’s Ramadan” video and we’ll post it!

Things are so bad in Michigan they need a “Middle Eastern Affairs Commission”

Because assimilation is not an option. via Appointments made to Middle Eastern Affairs Commission.

DETROIT — The newly-formed 15-member Middle Eastern Affairs Commission (MEAC) will act in an advisory capacity to the governor and the director of the Department of Civil Rights.

The organization is the successor to the 10-member Michigan Council on Arab and Chaldean American Affairs, created in 2013 to replace the 33-member Advisory Council on Arab and Chaldean American Affairs.

A statement from Gov. Snyder’s office said the latest reorganization and name change reflects the growing diversity of new Americans who have come to Michigan from the Middle East. The MEAC was established by executive order.

“I think the establishment of such a commission is indicative of the growing significance of the state’s Arab and Chaldean communities,” said Royal Oak businessman Michael Bsharah.

Bsharah said he hopes the commission focuses on issues that impact both communities, including immigration and civil rights.


Massive Muslim immigration will not end well in Michigan or any other state in the U.S.

In a dragnet spanning from Miami to Los Angeles — the feds launch a major crackdown on medicare fraud.

Sixteen doctors from metro Detroit are included, accused of ripping off taxpayers for over $100 million.

In the federal complaint, the FBI claims that doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other licensed medical professionals are responsible.

On Thursday the door was locked at the clinic for Doctor Rizwan Qadir in Sterling Heights. The FBI says he is part of a $19 million scheme.

No one answered the door at Qadir’s home in Bloomfield Hills. Investigators say he billed Medicare for unnecessary tests and paid a recruiter to bring him patients.

He would then allegedly order unnecessary tests for those patients.

Attorney Todd Perkins is defending Dr. Mohammed Bazzi, a Dearborn pharmacist who is also being charged.

“He is charged with a series of charges that 15 other individuals are charged with a host of different medical offenses,” Perkins said. “Medicare fraud, money laundering, structuring, different charges of that nature.”

The complaint describes the biggest Medicare takedown in FBI history. The sweep charged 243 people.

Those charged will not be allowed to perform Medicare work as this case moves forward. They stand as charged but not convicted.

“In America everyone is innocent – that’s why you have bail, until proven guilty,” Perkins said.

In the Detroit cases 24 bank accounts have also been frozen for now as the investigation continues.


Last week, another criminal Muslim doctor in Michigan was deemed, “the most egregious fraudster in the history of the country.”

 

Dearbornistan: Police to Enforce Curfew During ‘Month of Jihad’

It’s the official month of jihad in Islam and that means trouble in sharia paradise. Even in the Islamically occupied territories in the U.S.

via Police: Curfew to be enforced during Ramadan.

DEARBORN — During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, parents and minors should be reminded that a curfew will be enforced.

In Dearborn, where many residents observe Ramadan, the city never sleeps. During this month, fasting Muslims congregate at sundown to eat and pray and some stay up until dawn to prepare for the next day of fasting. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. During the holy month, Muslims are religiously mandated to refrain from consuming any food or drink during the day.

Residents staying up late means some businesses open longer and bakery shops are always open.

Because people of all ages will be up late, Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad advised parents to be especially aware of their children’s whereabouts during the time from the sunset meal “iftar”, through the pre-dawn meal “suhur”, both of which fall during the curfew times and when many Muslims observing Ramadan are active in the community.

Unless accompanied by a parent, Michigan’s Code of Ordinances make it unlawful for minors under the age of 17 years to “loiter, idle, or congregate” in any public area between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. from Sunday through Thursday. On Fridays and Saturdays, the curfew takes place from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. This curfew is ongoing and not specific to the month of Ramadan.

“When we find them in curfew violation we take them home the first time,” Haddad said. “And the second time, we give them a ticket

He added that police will add special patrolling around the places of worship and community centers during the holy month.


Chief Haddad is the same guy who enforced sharia law on Christians in Dearborn and has on numerous occasions been caught violating the rights of Christians in favor of the sharia. Dearborn was then forced to apologize and pay court costs.
