Police Chief Ron Haddad has obviously imposed sharia law in Dearborn, Michigan. What else explains why Nabeel Qureshi was arrested for merely speaking with Muslims at an Arab festival there, along with three other Christians whose only “crime” was filming? As Qureshi puts it, he was arrested for, “preaching the Gospel to people who had approached me and asked me to share my message with them.” (Islam’s sharia law prohibits proselytizing to Muslims.) Festival attendees cheered and several yelled “Allahu Akbar” as the four were led away in handcuffs. Unsurprisingly, Chief Haddad has been appointed by President Barack Obama to the Department of Homeland Security’s advisory board; there is no word of when Haddad and Obama will apologize to the ‘Muslim world’ for offending the faithful.
Freedom Radio spoke with one of the four arrested, David Wood of AnsweringMuslims.com, last night. He explained that “they were waiting for us” after he and his group were “roughed up” at last year’s festival. We also asked David about his earlier video commentary [Ed. — 1,740,000 views to date] on the planned Cordoba House mosque at Ground Zero:
The Thomas More Law Center has agreed to defend the four; their first court appearance is schedule for July 12. TMLC President Richard Thompson stated:
“These Christian missionaries were exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn, where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus. It’s apparent that these arrests were a retaliatory action over the embarrassing video of the strong arm tactics used last year by Festival Security Guards. This time, the first thing police officers did before making the arrests was to confiscate the video cameras in order to prevent a recording of what was actually happening. … Contrary to the comments made by Police Chief Ron Haddad, our Constitution does not allow police to ban the right of free speech just because there are some hecklers. Not all police officers approve of the way their department treated these Christians.”
