A Detailed Explanation of the Video
On June 21st, I moderated a peaceful public debate between Mary Jo Sharp and Ehteshaam Gulam. After the debate, Nabeel, Mary Jo, and I went to the Dearborn Arab Festival, which had already become an open celebration of persecution against Christians. The festival organizers had declared that Christians could not distribute materials on the public sidewalks or street, and, when the matter was brought before the courts, the judge agreed that Christians could not freely distribute information during the festival. (Note: This decision has been defended in the media by claiming that the “no-distributing-materials” rule applied to everyone, and therefore wasn’t unfair to Christians. However, anyone who was at the festival knows that this is not true. People were walking up and down the sidewalks distributing pamphlets and brochures, right in front of security. The rule was only enforced against Christians, and therefore only the rights of Christians were violated.)
Muslim security guards (one of whom had “Hezbollah” tattooed down his forearm) took things a step further and wouldn’t even allow Christians to talk about their beliefs openly. Security guards also repeatedly entrapped Christians in an attempt to get us to violate the court order.
This even happened to me, despite the fact that I wasn’t talking to anyone about Christianity or Islam. I had a pamphlet in my front pocket, and one of the Muslim security guards walked up to me and said, “That looks like a really interesting pamphlet. Could I have it?” She even had her walkie-talkie in hand! Fortunately, I had already heard about this woman and other Muslim security guards doing this repeatedly at the festival, so I didn’t fall for it. That’s when Nabeel and Mary Jo entered the tent in an attempt to question a group of Muslims about a horribly inaccurate pamphlet they were distributing. What happened next may be outlined as follows:
Fortunately, we got most of this on tape! See the video at the top.
- We see a booth that is specifically for answering questions people have about Islam.
- Nabeel walks up to the booth and attempts to ask a question.
- When the Muslims don’t want to talk on camera, Nabeel begins walking away.
- One of the Muslims (a former member of Tupac’s crew!) then invites Nabeel back for a dialogue.
- Security grabs our camera and forces MJ to turn it off. Security then breaks up the discussion, despite the fact that the Muslims at the booth agreed that we could record the conversation.
- We leave the tent and ask a police officer if we are free to record; he responds that we are in a public area and can record all we want. He also says that it is illegal for anyone to touch our cameras or force us to turn them off.
- We walk up to some non-Muslim security guards and ask if we can record a dialogue; they reply in the affirmative.
- Nabeel attempts to reestablish the discussion, but this time the Muslims at the booth don’t want to talk on camera.
- We leave the booth, and I see the woman who had grabbed the camera and forced MJ to turn it off. I begin recording the woman (in case we need to identify her later), at which point she gets on her walkie-talkie and informs her fellow Muslim security guards that we are harassing her.
- Following their pattern of entrapping Christians at the festival, the Muslim security guards convince two teenagers to strike up a conversation with Nabeel and snatch a pamphlet from his hand.
- While one of the teens distracts Nabeel with a conversation, the other snatches the pamphlet from Nabeel's hands.
- Within seconds we’re surrounded by a mob of Muslim security guards.
- The Muslim security force slaps our cameras, threatens us, shouts profanity at us, openly proclaims that our rights as Americans are meaningless, pushes us, kicks and tries to trip Nabeel, and lies to the police.
- The head of security then informs the police that we must be removed from the festival.
Now think about this. We insisted on our Constitutional rights to (i) ask a question at a booth, and (ii) record in a public place. This was enough to get us banned from a public sidewalk in Dearborn, Michigan (the city with the highest percentage of Muslims in the U.S.). By comparison, the Muslim security guards openly harassed, intimidated, bullied, threatened, entrapped, and assaulted Christians; they openly proclaimed that they don’t care about our rights as American citizens; they used profanity as they insulted us; they lied to police. This behavior was perfectly welcome in Dearborn, even at a family festival! (There were other examples of open hatred as well.)
I have contacted the Arab Chamber of Commerce (the organization responsible for planning the festival, selecting the security team, and deciding that Christians are no longer free to distribute information in public places). I have asked for an apology and for their thoughts on how such horrendous treatment of Christians will be avoided in the future. They have not responded.
Going back to the time of Muhammad, whenever the population of Muslims becomes significant, followers of other religions are suppressed, and the proclamation of non-Muslim beliefs is forbidden. This second-class status for non-Muslims is prescribed by Sharia, and the victims are called "dhimmis." Welcome to Sharia in the United States, my friends.

Watching that video, I feel absolutely sick to my stomach. I knew there was talk about establishing Sharia courts in America just like in the UK (I've almost finished my research paper on the idea of a Westernized sharia and its incompatibility with the Constitution), but I had no idea that "Islamization" is actually happening in these kinds of areas. I hope that the police saw the video, because security blatantly assaulted you and they had no grounds to do that. It's hard to imagine freedom of speech being indispensable, but evidently, it's happening; sadly, the idea of "trans-nationalism" as a way to interpret the Constitution is a major contributing factor. It seems undeniable that Muslims in America do get preferential treatment while Christians, Jews, etc. are consistently demonized and thrown under the bus, yet it's something that most don't acknowledge. Honestly? I fear being a Christian in America right now. But that's not going to prevent me from speaking out. Good for all of you who spoke out and maintained your innocence throughout this strange ordeal. I, for one, would not want to be the dhimmi either! :P
Islam strives for world domination but has any moslem ever thought a bit deeper and figured out what that would mean for the human race and the world? - all Jews on this world will be exterminated, not only the ones in Israel. - the same fate will be for all dogs, pigs and any other unclean animals. - freedom of speech is gone. - critics of islam are put to death - Christians are forced to convert. - apostates from islam are killed. - lives of Christians that do not convert will be made miserable. - moslems can have slaves again... Christians. - all other religions and atheist must convert or loose their head. - homosexuals will be hung or thrown from a tall building. - the history of the world will be re-written in islamic friendly terms. - women will be taken out of the work force. - child rape is permissable - thieves will lose their hand. - adultres women will be stoned. - women will be forced to give birth to as many children as they can. - women can be beaten again. - all women need to wear their penguin suit. - women and girls are not allowed to go to school. - all western literature will be destroyed. - libraries will be destroyed. - technical, medical and science subjects on schools will be banned because these contradict with the quran. - society will get a shortage of doctors, engineers and technicians. - hospitals run out of doctors and nurses. - no more medicines, camel urine is in high demand. - no more inoculation against diseases. - diseases that were eradicated are back. - the average life span drops from 80 years to End of 19th Century levels, about 37 years. - factories run out of people that can run the processes. - factories, refineries and utility plants run unsafe and need to be closed. - the western industrial system collapses. - you don't want to know what the unemployment rate is. - no more electricity. - no more gasoline or any other fuels. - no more telephone, TV, radio and Internet. - cars, trains, ships, planes and agricultural equipment can not be built anymore. - fertilizers and pesticides are not produced anymore. - farm land needs to be cultivated by hand. - there are not enough Christan slaves to do the manual work in the fields. - the quran does not give instructions to the moslems on how to grow food or work the land. - the farmers can not even produce one tenth of what is produced currently. - enormous famine will occur. - all domestic and wild animals will be slaughtered for food - people will fight and kill each other for food. - Christians will be in the minority and will be murdered first. - human population will shrink to levels before the industrial revolution, about 500 million. - for ages to come, the whole world will resemble current Somalia and Sudan. - although moslims are misguided in thinking that they will go to heaven, they shucky darn won't. - only islam is known to the world therefore nobody will go to heaven anymore. - the world has been made in a living hell. - separation between good and evil has occurred. I wonder, why didn't allah foresee this? Or maybe he did... In the end the choice is to the American people, expell moslims from your lands or eventually face the above mentioned consequences. Have a good day.Meanwhile, a survey by the Pew Forum reported in 2007 that 26 percent of American Muslims under age 30 think suicide bomb attacks are justified.
What happens when Islam takes root in an American city? Dearborn, Michigan, where some 30 percent of the city’s 98,000 residents are Muslim, may offer a clue. The Muslim call to prayer can be heard on Dearborn streets where many billboards, street, and storefront signs are in Arabic. Grocers stock "halal" food items prepared in adherence to Islamic rules. In 2004, some Muslim residents of Dearborn held an anti-American, anti-Israel demonstration in which pictures of the late Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini were displayed.
A year later, the local public high school is estimated to be 80 percent Muslim.
Islam is not compatible with a republic

When I first started writing for WorldNetDaily, almost three years ago, I wrote "Is Islam compatible with a republic?" My thesis then was to use the Constitution, reason, history and philosophy out of the Judeo-Christian traditions of intellectual thought, including Natural Law, to state authoritatively why Islam is not compatible with a republic. Why? Because Islam contains none of the essential components of what philosopher Booker T. Washington called the "fundamentals of civilization."
What are some of the fundamentals of civilization?
* Belief in God (the moon god, Allah, is a very different entity);
* veneration of the intrinsic value of all life;
* the rule of law;
* A written constitution based on truth, equity, liberty and morality;
* laws that don't discriminate based on race, creed, wealth, gender or national origin;
* Freedom of religion.
These are just a few of the fundamentals of civilization Islam under Shariah law has no conception of and utter contempt for.

Last Monday I drove down to Columbus, Ohio, to attend a rally for the 17-year-old Christian convert, Rifqa Bary, who was tricked to come back from Florida where she had fled in mortal fear. She returned to her native Ohio to attend a juvenile court hearing that may force her to move back with her family, who are devout Muslims from Sri Lanka. Rifqa fears that her father will perform an honor killing upon her for "blasphemy against Islam" because of her conversion to Christianity.

The event was organized by my friend, Florida radio host and publisher Pamela Geller. One of the speakers, Nonie Darwish, also a Christian convert from Islam, made this profound statement:
This [Islam] is not religion. It has nothing to do with religion. Religion is a relationship with God. ... Islam is a relationship with the State. Islam is a one-party, totalitarian system. It's a one-party State that will not allow you to speak. And it will kill anybody who challenges or questions.

Last Tuesday the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ordered Lynne Stewart, a convicted terror-coddling civil-rights lawyer, to begin serving her prison sentence.
Stewart, 69, was convicted over four years ago, in February 2005, of conspiracy and providing and concealing material support of terrorism for her actions in smuggling messages from "blind sheik" Omar Abdel-Rahman to his followers in the Islamic terror group Gama'a al-Islamiyya.
As irony would have it, last week President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, brought five terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to be tried in a criminal court in New York. This act is tantamount to treason and is essentially overturning 230 years of American constitutional law and over 400 years of common-law traditions by permitting enemy combatants caught on foreign territory waging war against American soldiers to have full constitutional rights rather than being speedily tried by a military tribunal.
Last year I wrote a book, "The Nuremberg Trials: Last Tragedy of the Holocaust," on this very issue of coddling extreme war criminals and clogging up our criminal courts with people as irredeemably wicked as the Nazis, who, after World War II, should have all been tried by a military (not an international) tribunal and summarily hanged in the public square as a lesson to future would-be dictators that the civilized world means business.
They didn't. Instead, in November 1945 the civilized world at the Nuremberg Trials miserably failed to dispense swift, comprehensive justice against Hitler's Nazis. Now, their anti-Semitic allies then and now, the Muslims, seek to finish what Hitler started.
Obama and Holder's decision to bring these religious fanatics to New York is an insane policy that no constitutional lawyer worth his salt could tolerate, but instead of a unified front against this double-crossing policy from the American Bar Association, the National Trial Lawyers Association and the ACLU, all I hear is the sound of shekels jingling in moneybag of Judas as legions of shyster lawyers from NYU, Columbia and Harvard are lining up to become the next Lynne Stewart – the next traitorous terrorist lawyer who will get 24/7 media coverage and a king's ransom for defending these murderers.
Islam is not compatible with a republic.
The Obama administration at every opportunity is bending over frontwards and backwards to convince the world that America is a nice country since GWB left office and Obama is in charge. Conversely, this Neville Chamberlain policy of appeasement has only demonstrated to the world our societal decadence, our duplicity and our utter lack of moral resolve to fight an avowed enemy like radical Islam with the same passion and merciless tactics they have leveled against the civilized world.
As Nonie Darwish said, Islam is a totalitarian political ideology feigning as a religion; indeed, Islam is anti-religion. It has no belief in a God of love, but in Allah, the pagan moon god that predates the prophet Muhammad and the Quran. Islam has no respect for the intrinsic value of all life, but is a cult of death that celebrates death by promoting homicide bombers and "killing the infidel where you find him."
America's republic respects a written Constitution based on God, Natural Law, liberty and truth; therefore, truly just laws should not discriminate based on race, creed, gender or wealth (within biblical traditions, of course). However, Shariah law under Islam openly discriminates against others based on every conceivable difference. In other words, according to the Quran, everyone not a Muslim is considered a second-class citizen or worse, can be abused, sold into slavery or even summarily killed. The Quran commands: "A Muslim must not enslave another Muslim but is free to do so with a non-Muslim."
And that's why, in my opinion, Islam is not compatible with a republic.
