Only in Omerica. Four Christians were arraigned today for handing out leaflets at a Muslim festival in Dearborn. Passing out leaflets is "disturbing the peace." Uh, disturbing the peace is Islam's job. Perhaps if these young men had demanded that passersby convert or die and subsequently beheaded those who refused to convert, they'd get more respect.
Here is the story of the arrest back in June.
This is so patently dangerous and wrong and unconstitutional that it's hard to know where to begin. The Department of Justice won't prosecute Black panthers for wielding night sticks at polling places on election day, but these young fellas were breaking the law? Whose law? Sharia law?
"NOT GUILTY": Christian Missionaries Arraigned Today
ANN ARBOR, MI – The four Christian missionaries arrested on criminal charges of breaching the peace were arraigned on Monday at the 19th Judicial District Court in Dearborn, Michigan. This was the next step in what has been described as police enforcement of Sharia law in a city dominated by a large Muslim population. ...Read More
They are being represented by the same courageous legal eagle, Robert Muise of the Thomas More Law Center, who is representing me in my suit against the city's department of transportation (SMART) for banning my pro-freedom bus ads. Stay tuned, we go to trial tomorrow.

4 missionaries charged in Dearborn festival proselytizing The Detroit News
Dearborn -- Four Christian missionaries were arraigned today on misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace following their June 18 arrest at the Arab International Festival.
Negeen Mayel, 18, of California; Nabeel Qureshi, 29, of Virginia; Paul Rezkalla, 18 of New York, and David Wood, 34, also of New York, face fines of up to $500 each and up to 93 days in jail. Dearborn authorities said the four "chose to escalate their behavior, which appeared well-orchestrated and deliberate" as they handed out religious literature and talking with people at the festival. The woman and three men are members or founders of a group called "Acts 17 Apologetics."
Law enforcement turns a bind eye to the vile, harassing and menacing jihadists at anti-Israel rallies. I have covered them all. You have no idea how dangerous those haters and race-baiters get, but hey, it's a free country for them.
But Ann Arbor attorney Robert Muise, senior trial counsel with the Thomas More Law Center, said their constitutional rights were violated and they engaged in no illegal behaviors.
"The encroachment of the First Amendment is just astonishing," said Muise, who said police confiscated the video cameras and have yet to return them, despite repeated requests. He said he would take the case to trial.
"We're not going to plead to anything because we didn't do anything wrong," Muise said.
City officials said police received a complaint of the members of Acts 17 Apologetics "harassing and intimidating patrons of the festival and that a large crowd was gathering."
The behavior of these individuals drew and incited a large crowd to a point where they were in violation of city ordinances, including breach of peace and failure to obey the lawful order of a police officer, according to the city's public relations department.
Drew a crowd. Did they want to convert the Christians, or kill them?
