Michigan Federal Judge allows Muslim violence against Christians; Dearborn stoning caught on video
Jihad Watch ^ | 5-16-13

Posted on 05/16/2013 5:09:14 AM PDT by SJackson

A severe blow for the freedom of speech, and victory for the advance of Sharia blasphemy laws here. "Michigan Federal Judge Allows Muslim Violence to Suppress Christian Speech; Immediate Appeal Filed," from the American Freedom Law Center, May 14:

A Michigan federal judge today dismissed a civil rights lawsuit brought by several Christian evangelists who were violently assaulted by a hostile Muslim mob while preaching at an Arab festival last year in Dearborn, Michigan, which has the largest Muslim population in the United States. Video of the Muslim assault went viral on YouTube. The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed the lawsuit against Wayne County, the Wayne County Sheriff, and two Wayne County Deputy Chiefs for refusing to protect the Christians from the attack and threatening to arrest the Christians for disorderly conduct if they did not halt their speech activity and immediately leave the festival area.

Judge Patrick J. Duggan, sitting in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, granted Wayne County’s motion for summary judgment, dismissing the lawsuit. The judge also denied AFLC’s motion requesting that the court issue an order preventing the Wayne County Sheriff and his deputies from restricting the Christian evangelists from displaying their banners and signs on the public sidewalks outside of this year’s Arab Festival, which will be held in June. In the ruling, the judge stated the following: “The Court finds that the actual demonstration of violence here provided the requisite justification for [the Wayne County sheriffs’] intervention, even if the officials acted as they did because of the effect the speech had on the crowd.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented: “The First Amendment was dealt a severe blow today as a result of this ruling. Indeed, this ruling effectively empowers Muslims to silence Christian speech that they deem offensive by engaging in violence. And pursuant to this ruling, the Christian speakers are now subject to arrest for engaging in disorderly conduct on account of the Muslim hecklers’ violent response to their speech. In short, this ruling turns the First Amendment on its head.”

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added: “This fight for our fundamental right to freedom of speech does not stop here. We have filed an immediate appeal of this ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. While Judge Duggan may have been the first judge to rule on this issue, he won’t be the last. Indeed, we are prepared to take this case to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary because it is imperative that our free speech rights not be subject to mob rule. This is the United States, not Benghazi.”

At least for now.

They weren't preaching!

THIS is the lie and cover that they use to soil the integrity of men that were marching in and around a bunch of enemies to America.

I'll look around for the video, but the one I saw showed (it's about an hr long, IIRC) a group of about 8 or 10 guys with a sign and they had bibles in their hands and maybe tracts (I can't remember), and the mere presence of Jesus in the midst of Satan's mob was enough to provoke them to commit violence on innocent men.


They weren't preaching .... they brought the witness of Jesus to the imprisoned and the prisoners rioted.

I understand why federal judges were given lifetime appointments, but as it has played out over time, think it was a terrible idea. They really come to think they are gods, and are as political as, or more political than, anyone who serves in elected office.

I play softball in Dearborn. There is one arab team in the league, and everyone fights with them. We’ve actually had bench-clearing brawls more than once. They are arrogant douchebags, and by the way they SUCK SUCK SUCK at softball. It’s a double-digit arse kicking every time.

An armed citizenry is the solution to the vacuum of justice.

My thoughts exactly. If police will not defend the exercise of the First Amendment against violence, it's time to resort to the Second Amendment. There are logical ways to arrange that so that the intolerant thugs are not intentionally provoked by the armed parties but so that it is lawful to use deadly force in the defense on another person's life.

The law took a look at the political speech of those who would support life and concluded that the First Amendment right was as nothing compared to the sensibilities of the women who might seek abortion and the sensitivities of their would be abortionists.

Rather than vindicating the principle of speech speech the First Amendment was sacrificed to the subjective feelings of these individuals.

I think it was John Adams who said that our republic would be a nation of laws, not men.

The liberal version of political correctness has turned this principle upside down, now the law has no value if you go against what is deemed "uncool" by whatever is the current progressive zeitgeist.

What's currently "cool" is how this judge came up with this ruling; the obvious and clear way he should have ruled on this case, if he had gone by a clear reading of the law, the ruling would have by necessity gone the other way.

A nation of cool, progressive men, not laws.

Allowing this to continue is suicide!

Allowing a government to shield our sworn enemies is suicide.

Allowing a government to use the IRS to attack us is suicide.

The list goes on and on and mark my words it will never stop until a Thomas Jefferson moment takes place and if government succeeds in further eroding the 2nd Amendment they might as well take Jefferson’s name out of the history books.

had they retaliated, they would have been arrested and charged with (attempted) murder.
the problem with mob violence is that you typically can’t see your aggressor. if you’re surrounded by 100 people, how do you pick out which one hit you in the back of the head with a bottle?

it’s not limited to muslims in MI either. there were a number of assaults at a pro-union rally recently where a number of anti-union counter protestors (including one of my friends) were assaulted, had personal property stolen or destroyed, and were threatened with grevious bodily harm (my friend had his phone stolen, and his wife received a number of death threats). cops would not allow charges to be filed as there was “no proof” of which individual committed the crime (never mind the pics and videos and numerous eye witness accounts).

Either there is the rule of law or there is tribal warfare. I say American-Americans go tribal. Muslims have no place here unless they are quiet and respectful of freedom. Their abettors in the courts, need a tribal justice visit. That or we can be raped and murdered by the p.c. protected British victims. This is life.

Islam and Sharia law will come to America in one generation by the stealth invasion equivalent to a modern version of the “Trojan Horse”, by Muslim immigration. Unless good men and woman speak up now.

Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men”. When our mainstream news will not inform you of one of the main issues of the 21st Century, due to political correctness, then it’s time not to be silent anymore.

Muslim refugees from Somalia and other “warzones” to the tune of 500,000 being relocated to America is the issue. Forget about being labeled a racist, bigot or being politically correct, silence won’t turn back the tide. This immigration is a real and growing and is a threatening danger to America. Just look at Europe today folks. 60 million Muslims immigrated to Europe and 80% are on some sort of public assistance, bankrupting the towns, cities and countries. Due to Muslim immigration France is now bankrupt and a welfare State. Is America next?

The time has come to speak up and take a stand folk, for America. Awareness is the issue as most families are simply far too busy, working two jobs, raising their children and do not have a clue or the time to research the issue. Islamic forces are destroying Europe; they’re in a fight for survival. The root cause is the inevitable consequences of multiculturalism and immigration plus the alarming birthrate of Muslims now an average of 8.1 children in each Muslim family. Europe has literally been invaded. Europe will become an Islamic state due to the immigration and sheer birthrate of Muslims.

I have done that for you, if you Google “TheProjectMuslimBrotherhood” you will find that this is their doctrine to destroy America and West from within by stealth jihad, and lies. Guess what, the doctrine is over 20 years old, and they are making substantial progress. We are now approaching 2400 Mosques along with approximately 2.7 million Muslims here in America.
“We will conquer Europe! (They are almost there) We will conquer America! Not through the sword but through Dawa (proselytizing) Yosuf-alQarawi, Muslim Brotherhood.”
“We love death more than you love life.” Quoted from the Fort Hood massacre killer. Islamists seek civilization Jihad and will stop as they literally follow the Quran. Although you can find peaceful passages, the Quran speaks violence throughout it. It is no Bible.

Massive immigration and multiculturalism is literally destroying most of Europe today. There are over 700 “Islamic No Go Zones”, within France, England and Germany, where police cannot enter. Take a look around you Dearborn, Michigan, Maine, Tennessee, Minnesota, (has the majority of Somalia refugees and a Senator who took his oath and placed his hand on the Quran refused the Bible.) New York, California, Colorado for examples of the immigration resettlement program, and very soon coming to your State. Over 90% of them are illiterate and in need of public assistance. Have you been to Paris or Sweden recently? Immigration is bankrupting much of Europe.

I have no problem with the “peaceful Muslims” that wants to integrate into our culture and follow our laws. The problem lies in that the militant Muslims dominate the peaceful ones and eventually wants to force Islam and Sharia law upon us all. They agitate and campaign to dominate the rest. Why should America be forced into adapting to their culture? They must adapt to our culture. The Boston bombers were motivated by extreme militant Islamic beliefs. Our mainstream news is in denial of the danger of understating the issue of the Muslim/Islam problem in America today. Many of the Mosques are breeding grounds for home grown terrorists. Today in our prisons over 18% of the prison population are being converted to Islam by recruitment by extremists. Islam berg, in New York is a breeding ground for over 30 militant training compounds in America today.

The media has yet to uncover the truth. For the truth is that there are no so called “moderate” Muslims. “Islam is one religion following Koran and Sunna” I have also read the Koran cover to cover. It is not a peaceful religion as they would have you believe.
Sad to say, they are making inroads into every facet of our lives and trying to change our culture, under the guise of the first amendment. Already, they are changing our schools, universities, cities, towns and even our own government has been infiltrated. They want Sharia law and will stop at nothing to see that it happens. School textbooks are being changed to put Islam in a more favorable light. Have you been to a school board meeting recently? Food menus are being changed to accommodate all of them.

The Saudis “oil money” contributes to schools, universities and politicians so they can put Islam in a more favorable light in America. Their intent is to destroy us from within, not by “war” but rather by stealth jihad and intentional deception and front organizations like “CAIR” who support Hamas. They are gradually succeeding folks. There are now over 50 Islamic organizations within our own borders. Concessions made to Muslims are growing everyday in America. You are just not aware or do not care. Recently, in a Catholic University, a group of Muslims is suing for discriminating against them for not allowing them to “pray” in a room without a crucifixion, how absurd, let them go elsewhere.

When Jews, Christians, Priests, Infidels are being slaughtered and murdered, and churches are being burned down did you ever wonder why the so called peaceful moderate Muslims, never speak out against these atrocities? Europe is losing the battle and America in less than a generation will be next. Where is the condemnation from the nearly 3 Million Muslims that are here, have you heard a word from them? Their silence speaks volumes on their real intent to destroy us from within and have no intention of ever living within our culture. They want Sharia law in America today folks, and they will not rest until they achieve that goal.. They want to wage war against freedom and democracy and have America continue to make concessions for them. You give them “one inch” and they will take a mile in support of their goals to establish Islam as the dominate religion in America and for the eventual mandate for Sharia law to take over our court system.
Sharia law is a real threat to America’s freedom folks. They just accomplished that fact, in England this week. We can learn a lot from just watching what is taking place in London.

Islam is a political ideology; it is the antithesis of a free society. One generation of silence on the issue due to political correctness is all it takes. What you do today and tomorrow will affect your children and grandchildren and future generations of America, yet unborn, you have a responsibility toward them.. Stand up and be counted to defeat this real threat from within. Voice your opinion, let your congressmen, senators and school boards know how you feel on the issue. Our freedom and liberty is at stake, be part of the solution folks.

Forget about being labeled and simply do what is right for America. We need a permanent solution, time is running out. Let us not become the next Europe. As for me I refuse to be silent on the issue. One person can make a difference, but think if were united, what a difference we can make to turn back the tide and doctrine of the Muslim Brotherhood. Enough is enough folks, if you do just one thing today, Google “TheProjectMuslimBrotherhood” and see for yourself their intent to destroy America from within. Thank you, and please forward this to millions. Let me know your opinions.
