“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 forÂ provoking him.”— (BCF)
Christians attacked at Arab Festival
The Islamic States of America?
By Bill Muehlenberg
Picture this: crowds of angry Muslims pelt Christians with stones, hurling abuse and chanting praises to Allah. Sudan, right? Indonesia, right? Egypt, right? Nope: the United States of America. We now have Muslim enclaves in various parts of America which are effectively no-go zones for non-Muslims.
Of course many English and European cities have had this problem for years now. Entire sections of major cities there are simply not safe places for non-Muslims to dare set foot in. Even police and firemen cannot enter some of these Islamic hotspots.
But when we see this very thing happening in America, then you know we are in a bad way. Creeping sharia and stealth jihad are occurring all over the West, and America is certainly not immune from it all. What is happening in Dearborn, Michigan for example should deeply bother every one of us.
The best way to appreciate just how bad things have become in this city is to watch the shocking video clip which I link to below. But let me offer a bit of prose reporting on this. One account begins this way: “Hundreds of angry Muslim children and adults rioted against Christians, throwing chunks of concrete and eggs at their heads, spraying them with urine and cursing at them â€“ while police stood by and threatened theÂ Christian victimsÂ with ‘disorderly conduct.’
“The city of Dearborn, Mich., hosted its annual 2012 Arab International festival on Father’s Day weekend. As can be seen in a video of the attack, a group of Christians holding signs were viciously assaulted by an angry mob of Arabs â€“ as the crowd chanted ‘Allahu Akbar!’ â€“ Arabic for ‘God is the greatest!’”
In an editorial note we read this: “Dearborn Michigan has become almost completely Islamicized, and bears little to no resemblance to an American city any more. Dearborn was one of the major cities targeted by Obama and his 2008 campaign, and in accordance with the Sharia he was raised under, Obama has well seen to its destruction. Further, we at NTEB do not feel that the actions of the police in this video are typical of American law enforcement in non-Islamic American cities.
“The Dearborn Deputy Police Chief Mike Jaafar is himself a Muslim and this may very well account for the actions of his squad regarding their unwillingness to properly police the crowds and protect the street preachers. But we present this video not as a criticism of law enforcement, but to show you the very real and present threat that Islamic Americans pose to anyone who dares to speak out against Islam.”
Bear in mind that Muslims as high up as at the UN level have been introducing resolutions which would forbid any criticisms of Islam. Consider the United Nations Human Rights Resolution 2005/3, “Combating Defamation of Religions,” which was passed in April 2005. This resolution stated that “defamation” and criticism of Islam was not to be permitted. I discussed this resolution here:www.billmuehlenberg.com/2011/09/03/islam-appeasement-and-western-suicide/
And this is certainly not the first time such things have happened in Dearborn. Recall what I wrote a few years ago about four Christian evangelists who were actually arrested and jailed for daring to share Christianity in their own city. I wrote about that case of American dhimmitude here:www.billmuehlenberg.com/2010/09/29/dhimmitude-in-america/
And of course these things are occurring right around the US. Consider another shocking example, this time from the east coast. The story begins as follows: “Two Christian evangelists were arrested in West Windsor, New Jersey early Tuesday morning after preaching the Gospel without obtaining permission and for attempting to record the encounter with police.
“Robert Parker and Don Karns state that they have been preaching at the Princeton Junction train station for several years, which is a part of the New Jersey Transit system, a provider of public transportation. They explained to Christian News Network that after they had finished preaching and witnessing to those waiting for trains, and were leaving, they were approached by Sergeant Kathleen Shanahan and Officer Sandy Crowe. Parker and Karns said that Shanahan was ‘extremely hostile.’
“The officers stated that the evangelists had violated the law for speaking at the train station without a ‘permit,’ and demanded identification. Parker and Karns attempted to record the encounter with their cell phones, but were ordered to turn them off, which they did. [Sergeant Shanahan] started repeatedly saying, ‘Put the phone down; put the phone down,’ Karns recounted. ‘You guys are big guys, and I’m just a little officer. You know how scary it is when you have a camera in your hand. How do I know you’re not terrorists? I have no way of knowing that’s not a bomb.’
“Karns said that Shanahan explained that she had just been to a class last week which showed cell phones being used as weapons, and informed the men that it was against the law for them to film her. She later told Parker that she also had concerns about his backpack, which was searched for train tickets after it was confiscated by police.
“While Parker provided identification, Karns asserted his right to privacy. Parker’s ID was not acceptable to the officers. ‘She demanded ID, and I said, “What law am I breaking?” and she said, “I’m going to take you to jail”,’ Parker remembered.
“The men were then taken into custody and transported to be booked and charged. As they were separated, Parker states that he overheard the officers disagreeing over which cell to place him in. ‘There’s a pervert in there; we’ll put him in that one,’ he heard Shanahan say.
“The evangelists spent three hours in jail and now face criminal proceedings for three offenses: defiant trespass, and two counts of obstruction for recording with a cell phone and declining to provide identification. ‘They treated us like terrorists,’ Karns stated.”
This is really scary stuff folks. So the moral of the story? If you are a Christian living in the Christian West, and dare to share your faith in public, you will likely get arrested and thrown into jail. But if you are a Muslim who rejects democracy, the rule of law, freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, and all that made the West great â€“ including its Judeo-Christian foundations â€“ then you are most welcome to do whatever you like in public.
The Islamisation of the West is proceeding apace, with more and more dhimmitude and creeping sharia occurring every passing day. How long before we find ourselves living in the Islamic States of America, or Ameristan?
Sleepers awake â€“ your freedoms are being stripped away from you, right under your very noses. Either wake up, speak up, and stand up, or simply submit and embrace your dhimmitude status.
