Dearborn No-Go Zone: Where Islam Rules and Christians Are Stoned
By now, close to 270,000 viewers have seen the video (see below) of the Christian street preachers being assaulted on the streets of Dearborn, Michigan. They were walking in public areas of the annual Dearborn Arab Festival on Sunday 17 June 2012 (Father’s Day), carrying placards and wearing T-shirts bearing mild statements of their belief in Jesus Christ.
An unruly crowd of many dozens of Arab Muslim Festival-goers, both men and women, old and young, and including children became verbally abusive and then physically violent with the Christians, pushing, shoving, and hurling objects at them that included bottles, eggs, and rocks.
Clearly visible on the video are images of dozens of these projectiles that came flying at the Christians, whose grunts of pain at being struck are as clearly audible as the shrieking mob’s chants of "Allahu Akbar.”
Repeatedly, the Christians asked for protection from Wayne County Sheriff’s Department (WCSD) officers who were present at the melee and, repeatedly, they were denied that protection. WCSD Deputy Chief Mike Jaafar, whose implausible excuses for inaction were caught in their entirety on the video, steadfastly refused to provide even one or two law enforcement officers to defend American citizens who were clearly in imminent danger of physical injury.
Assault and battery are the least of the possibly applicable charges that could have been and ought to be brought against numerous individuals among that mob; dereliction of duty and misprision of assault and battery are among the potential charges that come to mind for Deputy Chief Jaafar and Ms. Ursula K. Henry, Director of Legal Affairs for the WCSD, who was also present. This was as clear-cut an example of law enforcement failure to defend the First Amendment rights of American citizens as will ever exist. (...)
