Jailed for Jesus in America...Michigan police arrest Christians for talking to Muslims

Jailed for Jesus in America...Michigan police arrest Christians for talking to Muslims

  • Jailed for Jesus in America...Michigan police arrest Christians for talking to Muslims
    Four Christians were arrested and jailed for talking to Muslims about Jesus, by order of police chief Ronald Haddad of Dearborn Michigan, who defended the arrests one week after the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered those same police to let Christian evangelist George Saieg preach openly at a Muslim festival there.
    "We didn't distribute literature, or preach anything," said one of the four jailed evangelists.  "We spoke only to those people who first approached us, we talked only about Jesus' love...and within minutes we were handcuffed and jailed."  But Haddad was unrepentant.  "We did make four arrests for disorderly conduct," Haddad told Worldnet Daily. "They did cause a stir" [with their free speech about Jesus].  Is talking quietly about Jesus now disorderly, just because some Muslims get angry?
    "Allah Akbar!" shouted two Muslims as the Christians were taken away in handcuffs, by police who also seized the Christians' video camera evidence and refused to return video footage of the arrests.

    Live video is now on YouTube of another group of three evangelists being detained by the same police the very next day, because they distributed the Gospel of John on a public sidewalk outside the Muslim festival.  This new video got 15,000 hits in 3 days, after the police told those being held that city policy states Christian literature is not allowed within 5 city blocks of the Muslim festival, creating a "banned-Bible zone" in violation of the First Amendment.  Let's demand an FBI investigation by petitioning Congress. 

  • "The police are enforcing Sharia law in America," said one of the four arrested Christians, explaining that Muslim Sharia law is not just about putting Burkas on women, but also prohibits anyone from talking to Muslims about Jesus, and prevents listeners from escaping Islam by converting to any other religion.

    Giving Peace Advice to Terrorist Can Be Illegal

    by Bob Egelko
    WASHINGTON - The government can prosecute private citizens for giving advice to a foreign organization - on how to negotiate peace or take its case to the United Nations, for example - if the group is on the U.S. terrorist list, the Supreme Court ruled Monday.
    In the most important foreign policy and civil liberties case of their 2009-10 term, the justices ruled 6-3 that a law prohibiting "material support" of foreign terrorist organizations can be used against people who claim to be providing only peaceful, humanitarian assistance.

    "It also importantly helps lend legitimacy to foreign terrorist groups - legitimacy that makes it easier for those groups to persist, to recruit members, and to raise funds - all of which facilitate more terrorist attacks," Roberts said.
    Dissenting Justice Stephen Breyer protested that the majority's interpretation "would deny First Amendment protection to the peaceful teaching of international human rights law," on the grounds that it might enable terrorists to conduct sham negotiations.
