4 Christians Arrested for Sharing Their Faith – Watch Now!

ANN ARBOR, MI – In what some have described as police enforcement of Sharia law at the annual Dearborn Arab International Festival, last Friday night Dearborn Police Officers arrested four Christian missionaries and illegally confiscated their video cameras which were recording the events surrounding their arrests.  The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, today announced it is representing all of the Christian missionaries.

Arrested on charges of Breach of the Peace are: Negeen Mayel, Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Rezkalla, and David Wood.  Mayel, an eighteen year old female, whose parents emigrated from Afghanistan and a recent convert from Islam to Christianity, was also charged with failure to obey a police officer’s orders. She was approximately 100 feet away and videotaping a discussion with some Muslims when her camera was seized.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented, “These Christian missionaries were exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn, where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus. It’s apparent that these arrests were a retaliatory action over the embarrassing video of the strong arm tactics used last year by Festival Security Guards.  This time, the first thing police officers did before making the arrests was to confiscate the video cameras in order to prevent a recording of what was actually happening.”

Thompson continued, “Contrary to the comments made by Police Chief Ron Haddad, our Constitution does not allow police to ban the right of free speech just because there are some hecklers.  Not all police officers approve of the way their department treated these Christians.”
Robert Muise, Senior Trial Counsel with the Law Center in charge of the case, yesterday faxed a letter to Chief Haddad demanding that the three video cameras and tapes illegally seized from the missionaries be immediately returned.

    This is how it starts. The take over of a country. Look at France and how they are held hostage to the demands of the the Muslim community. Look what has just happened in NY with the building of the mosque near the sight of WTC attacks. Wake up!!

    I watched these same crimes being committed by Muslims at this same “public festival” to these same people. Wouldn’t you think mainstream media would be all over this?!? Wouldn’t you think the ACLU would be in the middle of this because of religious discrimination?!? WHERE ARE THEY?!? Where is AMERICA and AMERICANS??? This our country and yes IT CAN HAPPEN HERE just as it has happened in Europe…sharia law has crept in there and now its trying to do the same here in bits and pieces starting with sharia finance!!! If you are looking for good websites to keep up with this madness (This is the REAL Prince of Persia at work the one that fought on the spiritual plain with Michael the archangel as accounted in the book of Daniel 10:10-21) See ActforAmerica.org, JihadWatch.org, and Islam-Watch.org
