Muslims yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ at breach of peace arrest of Christians at Dearborn Arab fest

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.”

Freedom Radio, 8 PM EDT SUN: Diana West, Tim Brown on GZ mosque; Bill Roggio on Shahzad, Taliban

Join Pat, aka Honest Conservative, 8 PM EDT Sunday evening, for the May 16 edition of Freedom Radio.

Update: Here is Tim Brown’s interview from Sunday evening:

Retired FDNY firefighter and 9/11 survivor Tim Brown of theBravest.com joins us to discuss the plan to build a sharia-complaint ‘Cordoba House’ within sight of where 19 followers of sharia law slammed Flights AA 11 and UAL 175 into the Twin Towers.

We’ll discuss with Diana West her latest column on TownHall.com, ‘Do We Deserve a Mosque at Ground Zero?’

The second attack on the World Trade Center is coming. It will stand 13 stories high, cost $100 million dollars and include a mosque. Known as Cordoba House — the name echoing an early caliphate that, of course, subjugated non-Muslims — it will be located two blocks away from where our magnificent towers crashed and burned, easy wafting distance for the Islamic call to prayer.

Maybe we deserve such a mosque at Ground Zero. It will serve as the perfect monument to post-9/11 America, a shining reproach to a nation that long ago capitulated through loss, or worse, absence of will. Not that it will be widely seen that way. Aside from the torment and seething of survivors, both family and professional family of the 9/11 dead, aside from blog noise and tabloid venting, the phony narrative of Cordoba House as a kind of healing outreach center — pure deception — appears ready for chiseling into stone. And that’s not because Cordoba’s flimflamming Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf obfuscates everything negative about Islam (jihad, for instance), and promotes everything antithetical to Western liberty (Sharia), often with jarring Western references. (“To Muslim ears,” he writes, “Sharia law means … the conditions necessary for what Americans call the pursuit of happiness.”) That is, it’s not only the efforts of Imam Rauf that are the problem. It’s because nearly nine years after 9/11, we are still stupid enough to buy them.

Bill Roggio of the LongWarJournal.org received an email from the Taliban within 8 hours of the May 1 attempt by Faisal Shahzad to set off a car bomb in Times Square. On April 30, the day before the attempted attack, the Taliban put their web site online and uploaded a video of their taking credit. Bill will explain what happened next and detail the players at the Pakistan end of the plot.

Unfriendly Fire; let’s end America’s lawfare against our troops

Last night on Freedom Radio, retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel Robert Weimann talked about his open letter to Secretary of the Army Pete Geren. Within it, ‘Capt Roger Hill Case: Mister Secretary, it’s time to end the double standard,’ LTC Weimann demonstrates that political considerations have endangered the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan and resulted in more than a few unjust prosecutions of our troops.

Battlefield evidentiary requirements will be addressed within a revamp of the Military Commission Act (that was nearly hidden within Friday’s White House announcement). With due respect to President Obama, those few select Members of Congress with whom he is negotiating, and the lawyers involved, if the Rule of Law overrides the Laws of War, that revamp will be reckless legislation.

This is America’s war and America’s sons and daughters are the ones fighting it. If the vast experience of front line troops is not sought and considered — especially from those who have fought this war at the company level — during the revamp of the MCA, a countless number of our troops will die and their missions will fail as a result.
