What is with these Syrian "business men" trying make a fast buck and ruin the city in the process. Abraham Atiyeh is a slum lord, plain and simple. His last name used to be associated with sports...now it is simply associated with CRIME. Get an injunction for every scam this guy proposes. But watch out for his many, many "cousins" on the East Side of Allentown....

I am pround to say that has been 1yr & 4 mo. sober. If it wasn't for faciltities like the one proposed, I would probably be dead or in jail. This whole "Not in my back yard" Mentality s**ks. If it was one of your kids or Fam. members you "people" would be all for it. The entire time I was in treatment not one Police call was made, 1 person left the property & was immediately removed from the faciltiy. I do think that security needs to be increased though. Everyone makes mistakes. They should have the right to at least try and make amends. Im talking about Life issues not murder,rape or things like that. Alot of residents in "upper" class nieghborhoods want to turn a blind eye to their own issues. Look yourself in the mirror & swallow your pride. You are no better than I.

You are missing the point this treatment facility will house the overflow of inmates from Northampton county and other surrounding county prisons. First it will start off as "NON" violent offenders and then it will be what ever they have.

By the way, where is your house located?

What else can you absolutely tell us all about what WILL BE in the future Miss Cleo? Have any good lottery numbers for us.
Now that you KNOW what will happen, why not post what your beloved NY teams records will be at the end of 2009.

As far as where I live, I live in the same community as you do based on past posts you have made, and I'm not a bigot or hater to those who have an illness and need treatment. More than it appears you are capable of being.

"Let he who is without sin" and "Judge not" or are YOU the almighty so you can judge others less fortunate than you?

This guy is a shakedown artist scumbag, like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. He's using drug addicts as his "minority victims".
