Further Update: According to Debbie Schlussel’s site, these fractious people from Iraq are Chaldean Christians, and not Muslims.
It’s yet another example — remember the Assyrian Christian “youths” in Södertälje? — of atavistic tribal behavior, which is not always dependent on religion.
Update: Video has been Youtubed. Thanks, Vlad!
The text of this article (which is from a British paper, but concerns events in Michigan) doesn’t identify the ethnicity of the wedding-store brawlers. However, even if you don’t watch the embedded video, you’ll recognize the trademark clan-based Muslim behavior as described in the report: the offended female phones her family to report a perceived slight, and all her male relatives descend en masse to wreak violent mayhem in the store and repair the damage to the family honor.
I can’t embed the video, so be sure to open the article and watch it. The store owner identifies the brawlers as from “the hills of Iraq”. Here’s the news story from The Sun:
Bridezilla Erupts in Wedding Shop
THIS shocking video shows an angry bride-to-be trashing a wedding dress shop after an argument with staff.
The woman and her pals were caught on CCTV after entering the store to purchase a dress.
A staff member refuses to make alterations to the woman’s frock — and an almighty brawl ensues.
Owner Hekmat Putruss said when he told the “bad-mouthing” bridezilla to leave she flipped out.
He said: “She started threatening me, saying ‘you don’t know who I am, I’ll call my husband to kill you, to teach everyone here a lesson’.”
Three men later turned up at the shop and burst in while it was filled with customers.
The video footage shows one of the men shoving Mr Putruss into a showcase and tackling him to the ground.

Another man spits on Mr Putruss’s wife and slaps her face.
Mannequins in the store in Oakland County, Michigan, US, are picked up and used as weapons.
Police finally arrive at the store and arrest the three men who were later charged with assault.
Mr Putruss said he and his family sustained injuries from the attack and the estimated damage bill would come to around £10,000.
He said: “They just attacked without notice … this is a clothing store, a women’s clothing store, we don’t expect things like this to happen.”
