Islamic Law Comes To Dearborn

by Pamela Geller - June 23rd, 2010 - Human Events

Is it illegal to preach Christianity to Muslims in America now?

Acts 17 Apologetics, a Christian evangelistic group, was banned from passing out fliers at this year’s Arab Festival in Dearborn, Mich., but they went to the festival anyway and ended up getting arrested.

On Saturday, I got this message from David Wood of Acts 17: “Muslims threatened to kill Nabeel [Qureshi, an ex-Muslim and David’s colleague] and me if we showed up again at Arab Fest in Dearborn, so we went there yesterday. They didn’t kill us. Instead, police arrested us and we got to spend a night in jail (along with two others who were video recording us).”

Wondering if they were arrested for passing out fliers in defiance of the ban, I asked David about the ban. He answered, “Yes, we’re banned from handing out literature, but we didn’t do that. We followed the rules, and still got thrown in jail. They flat out lied about us. We can prove they lied with the video footage (just like last year), but the police took our cameras and won’t let us have the footage. There’s major oppression of anyone who criticizes Islam.”

Can you imagine what would happen in the MSM if any group of Muslims was treated the way these Christians were treated? Why do the police get to arrest someone for simply video taping a public event? When did the right to peaceful assembly get converted into a right to ban other people from a public place? Especially when did this become a basis for the right to arrest them? What gives the police the right to seize video that will prove whether the defendents were obeying the law and then refuse to release it?

What is happening in America is the subversion of all rights for Christians and whites. Only blacks and Muslims have rights.
