Christians Jailed for Preaching Christianity to Muslims in Michigan

Note: This story also appears on Emerging Corruption.

We have seen this played out around the world. Christians are jailed, beaten and even murdered for their beliefs. But that can’t happen in America, or could it?

If you live in Dearborn, Michigan not only can this happen, it did happen. Twice!

The first incident occurred on June 18, 2010 when Dr. Nabeel Qureshi was observed by police discussing his Christian faith with a group of Muslim youths. Dr. Oureshi, a former Muslim who converted to Christianity, was engaged in a peaceful discussion when the Dearborn police decided he was breaking the law. The incident was caught on this video. Judge for yourself if Oureshi was “breaching the peace”, which were the charges he faced, along with three others, David Wood, Paul Rezkalla, and Negeen Mayel.

The second incident occurred two days later, on June 20, 2010.

Rezkalla and Josh Hogg were standing on a public sidewalk handing out the Gospel of John to those willing to accept the booklet as they passed by. It only took a couple of minutes for the Dearborn, Mi. police to swarm in and put a stop to this violation of Sharia Law.

The pair were “brought them to the police command trailer located inside the festival where the Christians were admonished, photographed, and ordered to stop their peaceful religious activity.”

The person recording the video of the event was ordered to stop, and one police officer placed his hand over the lens of the camera. Fortunately, this video shows his face.

Fortunately, the Thomas More Law Center has decided to file a lawsuit on behalf of the Christians who were deprived of their rights by Dearborn, Michigan’s finest.

According to the Thomas More Law Center’s website:

The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) announced today that the City of Dearborn, its Mayor, John B. O’Reilly, its Chief of Police, Ronald Haddad, 17 City police officers, and two executives of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce were named as defendants in a ninety-six page federal civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court in Detroit this morning.

The lawsuit, brought by TMLC and co-counsel and Sharia law expert, David Yerushalmi, stems from two separate police actions at the June 2010 Dearborn, Michigan Annual International Arab Festival.

Richard Thompson, TMLC President and Chief Counsel, commented, “Muslims dominate the political and law enforcement process in Dearborn. It seems that police were more interested in placating the Mayor and Muslims than obeying our Constitution. Sharia law makes it a crime to preach the Gospel to Muslims. This is a classic example of stealth Jihad being waged right here in America. And it should be a wake-up call for all patriotic Americans.”

Robert Muise, TMLC’s Senior Trial Counsel who is handling the matter, stated, “While the videos of the police violating the fundamental constitutional rights of our clients are utterly shocking, it is perhaps even more shocking that City officials, including the Mayor, would engage in a propaganda campaign to smear the good reputation of these Christians even after they were acquitted by a jury of the bogus criminal charges. All of this is strong evidence of the fact that Sharia is negatively influencing the City and its officials.”

The United States of America was founded on Religious Freedom (among the other freedoms we hold dear). The intolerant nature of Sharia Law is simply incompatible with the Laws and Constitution of this country. People are free to follow the religion of their choosing, or none at all. The government simply cannot decide that one religion has more rights than another. While Sharia Law may be the Law of the Land in other countries, it is not the Law in America. Muslims are free to practice their religion, but when Shariar Law conflicts with the American Constitution, the Constitution must prevail every time.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
