    U.S. Police Encourage Muslims To ‘Stone’ Christians At Public Event

    http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/06/muslims-stone-christians-in-dearborn-mi/

    Ok, for those who still think Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance, take a look at this year’s Muslim Arab Festival. This went on in America people! It happened in Dearborn, Michigan. Notice how the police see the quiet restrained Christians as a threat to public safety, while the bratty little Muslim kids assault them with milk crates, glass bottles, eggs and whatever they can find.

    The police are complicit in the behavior of the Muslims at the festival. They encourage their rioting and their provocation.

    The police also say they cannot spare just two officers to stay with the Christians, but notice at the end they have about 15 officers that come to escort the Christians out.

    I’ll also note that I didn’t see any preaching going on per se. The Christians here were simply silently holding up signs. Personally, I believe if you are going to go, then preach, but I think probably one to one would have worked better. Yet, there is absolutely no reason for the Muslims to react this way towards anyone.

    The policemen in this clip should also discover what actual law enforcement is. they turned blind eyes to the real culprits in all of this and if you will notice they don’t have “free speech zones.” Let me ask, where in the Constitution is it declared one must have a free speech zone to exercise the right of free speech? It doesn’t. In fact, the very officers that were there were supposed to be protecting everyone’s right to free speech, including the Christians. Sadly, they failed miserably.

    UPDATE: Joel McDurmon over at American Vision News supplied additional information:

    The non-uniformed police officer who pokes his head into the discussion is Wayne County Deputy Chief Mike Jaafar. He would later state that ”[It's a] great family-oriented festival. . . . The atmosphere right now is phenomenal–all the kids are having a good time, and we’re doing our best to keep everyone safe and I think our guys are doing a great job at it.”

    While having an Arabic last name, it is not known whether Mr. Jaafar himself is a Muslim or not.

    He can be reached at the sheriff’s office at [email protected]

    Interesting how one young man screams that he's an American citizen and knows his rights; apparently, he's completely unaware of the rights for ALL Americans, including those of "freedom of speech."

    Islam is both secular and religious, much like the Holy Roman Empire of the dark ages. I believe that Islam may well be the final manifestation of the beast/false prophet of Revelation!

    Me, too. For years, I heard it espoused by many that it was the Roman Catholic Church. After 09/11 and the events thereafter, upon further research, I came to the conclusion that it is islam - that is the religion that has the false prophet as it's main figurehead, the false prophet mohammed. Interesting, too, is that people will be beheaded for Christ. What religion preaches beheading, none that I know except islam.

    Well first off I think that the Christians were handling it wrong. While they had the right to be there legally it is clear that the law was not interested in protecting them. Second to go there and blaspheme Islam they were asking for trouble. They were using the cloak of Christianity as a tool of unrighteousness.
    What they should have done is go as participants and if the chance arrived witness to someone from a one on one bases.
    Their persecution in my opinion was not godly persecution, but from their own evil. They were not there to promote Christ. They were there to slander Islam by using Christ as their tool to carry out their unrighteousness. Bottom line the Christians were in the wrong from a scriptural standpoint.
    That being said I would hope that they did report the police for their lack of protection and something is done about that.

    Is it "Christian" to go where you are not wanted and wave signs which you know will incite trouble?

    No Bill it is not. Legally they have the right, but they were clearly in the wrong from a biblical standpoint.

    You got any Scripture to support that view?

    I wonder what would happen at most churches in the US if a couple of Muslim guys showed up and started yelling heretical accusations, blaspheming Jesus Christ, and calling out our Christian hypocrisy?

    These guys handle this stuff wrong. There is a better way.

    It is more of an overview in method as how we are to handle spreading the gospel. If you watch the video it is clear that they were not there to spread the gospel by the signs they had. They went there to confront and condemn. Paul shows us how we are to do it in places like that when he went to mars hill.
    These people were just wrong all the way around and got what they got, scorn. The police were clearly wrong and should have been removed from their positions but the Christians were in violation of of biblical principles in what they were claiming to do. What they did was not done in a loving manner so it was not biblical.
