Funny how you haven’t heard this from anywhere in the mainstream media, isn’t it?
“Dearborn Muslim Charged with Nine Counts of Attempted Murder for Trying
to Kill Street Preachers Outside the Islamic Center of America,” from Answering Muslims, July 2:
I heard about this when I was still in Michigan, but I didn’t want to
post anything until I had some documentation. I waited for the Detroit
Free Press and other local media to report the story, but I gave up
after more than a week of searching. Fortunately, Gadi Aldeman (GA)
interviewed Ruben Israel (RI) and posted the disturbing news over at Front Page Magazine.
On Sunday, June 17th, 2012, Ruben Israel’s group of street preachers went to the Islamic Center of America (the same mosque I had visited two days earlier).
While the group was preaching, a Muslim emerged from the mosque, got
into his SUV, and tried to run them over. Mosque security naturally
blamed the preachers for provoking him.
Everyone should take note here. Ruben Israel’s presence at the Dearborn
Arab Festival was national news. The media jumped at the chance to show
images of intolerant Christians harassing Muslims (check out Niraj Warikoo’s coverage
over at the Detroit Free Press). While I have no objections to calling
attention to (and criticizing) the actions of Ruben Israel and his
associates, we should all be horrified to realize that nine counts of
attempted murder by a Muslim targeting Christians isn’t even considered
newsworthy by local media in Michigan.
