Are U.S. Police Enforcing Sharia Law?
Video has recently resurfaced showing an incident that happened a few years ago in Michigan. It is relevant because it illustrates the tension now growing in the United States and around the world between Islam and the Judeo-Christian culture, and between Sharia law and our cherished legal system.
The Conservative Tribune examined the case in a recent article:
Four evangelical Christians were detained, arrested and had their camera confiscated in 2010 at an Arab festival in Dearborn, Michigan.
They were cited and arrested for “disorderly conduct” yet as shown in the video they were in no way disorderly nor were they even IN the festival area. They were polite enough to stand outside of the festival area.
Their only crime? Preaching Christianity instead of Islam in America.
The four men were doing nothing more than handing out Christian literature on a public sidewalk when they were surrounded and accosted by a dozen officers.
There has never been a more clear-cut and blatant abuse of police powers, on top of the First Amendment violation of the four men by what can only be described as a disgraceful police department. We support our local police, but only when they do their jobs to protect us from criminals — not enable Islamic radicals.
One of the biggest problems and the reason why these “no-go areas” exist is because under the socio-political system of Islam, many laws and freedoms of countries clash with the cultural law of Islam.
The Muslim immigrants in these countries don’t assimilate and arrogantly require that the countries not interfere under “religious” laws.
Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana has spoken out about the Dearborn case as well as no-go zones in the United States and other western countries.
“They’re coming as the Muslim population grows,” said Jindal. “We already see areas such as Dearborn, Michigan: It isn’t a no-go zone- police don’t fear to enter there and non-Muslims aren’t menaced for non-adherence to Shariah norms- but police did the bidding of the Muslim community…and arrested some Christian missionaries solely for the crime of preaching to Muslims. A Shariah crime, not a crime according to any U.S. law.”
The City of Dearborn settled the case in 2013, offering an apology and paying restitution to the four men. Here’s the original video:
