Dearborn continues its weary slide into Sharia, with no American authorities showing any sign that they particularly care. “American Muslims Stone Christians in Dearborn, MI,” from Answering Muslims, June 26 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
The Dearborn Saga continues.
There’s no questioning the fact that Ruben Israel’s group came to the Dearborn Arab Festival to provoke a response from Muslims. But their actions were protected by the U.S. Constitution. The violent response they received from Muslims, however, was illegal. Every bottle, rock, or milk crate thrown was an assault.
I’m no fan of Ruben Israel. Indeed, I’m appalled at some of his group’s antics. Yet I can’t help but think that the city has brought this on themselves. Why did Ruben Israel come to the festival? Because Dearborn Police started arresting Christians (myself included) for peacefully sharing the Gospel in 2010. Thus, Ruben’s message is: “If you’re going to start messing with Christians, you’re going to have to deal with us.”
And so the Dearborn Arab Festival has become a beacon for anyone who wants a confrontation with Muslims. If festival security hadn’t started entrapping and assaulting Christians in 2009, and if Dearborn Police hadn’t unveiled their strategy of arresting Christians in 2010, I doubt Ruben would have ever set foot in Dearborn….
