This is a video of Nabeel Qureshi and David Wood asking questions at Arabfest, in Dearborn, Michigan.
Why in America, are American’s not protected by their own Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
A booth at the festival hung a banner titled "Islam: Got Questions? Get Answers." From their table, Nabeel and David picked up a pamphlet claiming that Islam promotes peace. The pamphlet was filled with error so the two decided to make a video refuting it. As they approached the booth with the pamphlet that was given to them they were hoping for an opportunity to discuss there claims. What takes place next is a real eye opener.
We ask you, is it a coincidence that the city with the highest percentage of Muslims in the United States is the city where Christianity is not allowed to be represented (let alone preached) on a public sidewalk? Is it coincidence that in this city, people will say "No way!" when we say "This is the United States of America"?
Is this what will happen when Islam takes over the United States?
Law enforcement caved to Islamic demands of supremacism, in breach of our inalienable rights guaranteed to us in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
"The Arabic Christian Perspective (ACP), and Pastor George Saieg attend the annual Arab International street festival there every year handing out Christian material to Muslims. They do this along the public sidewalks that run along the street, where the festival is conducted. It is open to the public and admission is free. Business establishments along the street remain open during the festival. It is a bold thing to do, but in the five years ACP has been going there, it has never encountered any problems."
The Dearborn Police Department has asked ACP to stand on a single corner, where they would be unable to freely mingle with festival gatherers and unable to reach their intended audience. This is a violation of the group's First Amendment rights.
Bill Becker had filed a lawsuit and the Thomas More Law Center, based in Ann Arbor, is assisting in this matter.
COPY OF COMPLAINT
Becker said, "The relevance of our lawsuit is based on the idea that in Iran, we applaud what the people are doing to express their objection to the election, but in the U.S., police officials are restraining my clients' rights to practice its free speech liberty."
Our freedoms are being eroded, our very way of life torn asunder by Islam.
This is free speech under siege. These folks were harassed and intimidated, aided and abetted by law enforcement.
As reported by the Chicago Tribune,
A federal judge Thursday denied an evangelical Christian group’s request for permission to hand out literature on sidewalks at an Arab festival in the heart of the Detroit area’s Middle Eastern community.
U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds denied Anaheim, Calif.-based Arabic Christian Perspective’s request for a temporary restraining order.
The group describes itself in its court filing as “a national ministry established for the purpose of proclaiming the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ to Muslims … (that) travels around the country attending and distributing Christian literature at Muslim festivals and mosques.”
A lawyer for the group said it would seek a permanent injunction against the city of Dearborn.
“It’s not over,” said Robert J. Muise of the Thomas More Law Center, an Ann Arbor-based Christian rights advocacy group.
Another lawyer on the case said the Dearborn officials action could be part of what he described as a broader Muslim legal attack on critics of Islam in our “Judeo-Christian nation.”
“Muslims are using the courts in this country to stop our free speech rights,” said William J. Becker Jr., a Los Angeles attorney who has represented a number of prominent critics of Islam. Click on link for the full article.
