One only has to consider that when any of our rights as outlined by our Constitution and Bill of Rights is suspended in favor of Sharia law – that Sharia law is in effect to that degree.
This has happened and continues to be the case for Dearborn, Michigan. Let’s take a look at 3 instances…
First, take the case of Nabeel Qureshi and David Wood. They and 2 other evangelical Christians were arrested for “disorderly conduct” at Dearborn’s Arab festival in 2010 for simply passing out Christian literature on the sidewalk outside of the festival. As you can clearly see in the video they were hardly being ‘disorderly’, they were only exercising their freedom of speech and freedom of religion on an American street, and act protected by our Constitution.
But in Sharia law, it is forbidden for a non-Muslims to openly proclaim their beliefs to Muslims and Muslims can’t leave Islam under penalty of death. As Sharia law is the guiding force for Muslim behavior – we ultimately have the makings of conflict as Sharia law is not completely compatable with our Constitution.
If Sharia law commanded that Muslims respect the laws in whatever country they immigrated to, we would not have this conflict. But, quite to the contrary, Sharia law commands that Muslims not just rebel against, but actually kill ‘the infidels’. In this case, it commanded them to take control of the local community and the local police dept. in order to cease violation of Sharia by these ‘Christian infidels’.
These Christians tried passing out their literature and were quickly arrested, even having their camera illegally confiscated, by a dozen officers. In order to do exercise their rights, they were told they had to be many, many blocks away from the Arab festival.
This is clearly a violation of the Constitution in favor of Islamic Sharia law.
We have another example from 2012 in Dearborn where exercising one’s Constitutional rights was deemed ‘creating a disturbance’.
The incident happened once again at the Arab International Festival. A handful of Christians decided to walk through the festival carrying banners and literature promoting Christianity and were promptly bloodied with rocks and bottles thrown at them by the Muslims in attendance.
Walking around any part of the U.S. proselytizing any religion you want is protected by the highest law of our land, except in Dearborn. Cops on the scene didn’t protect these Christians being assaulted or their rights, instead they sided with the Muslims, threatening the Christians with arrest if they didn’t leave.

Finally, there is the case of George Saieg, who was awarded over $100,000 in attorney’s fees by a Detroit judge after being attacked and arrested at this same festival (more to read on that below the video):
No, there is not yet Sharia law in full bloom in Dearborn. If that were the case we would likely have seen beheadings in the street already, just as what recently happened in Saudi Arabia (see video below).
But we obviously have the beginning of Sharia – on more than one occasion local police violated our Constitution in favor of Muslims acting in accordance with their laws.
Coming to America? Here’s the public beheading of a Burmese woman in Saudi Arabia after getting accused of murder and sexual abuse of a 7 year old girl. Convictions with punishment of death can occur with the testimony of one witness, often by the employeer of a maid who refuses to convert to Islam.

More On The Saieg Case:
A Detroit judge has awarded over $100,000 in attorney’s fees in the case of a Christian, George Saieg, who was attacked and arrested at the festival.
“This case is a stunning example of the pernicious influence of stealth jihad and Shariah law in America. The city of Dearborn is now a serial violator of Christians’ constitutional rights and has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and costs defending its insidious conduct. Apparently, in Dearborn, where Shariah and jihad is advocated openly, it is a crime to preach the Christian gospel. AFLC is committed to stopping this attack on our Constitution. And the ruling today allows us to do just that,” said Yerushalmi, an AFLC attorney.
A federal judge in Michigan has decided to allow a civil-rights claim against the city of Dearborn by four Christians arrested at the city’s Arab festival to move forward.
In that case, the city was told to pay the fees on behalf of Christian Pastor George Saieg, who had been arrested at the 2009 event. Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen said his recommendation was for fees and costs totaling $103,401.96 to be awarded in the case that was handled by attorney Robert J. Muise.
The American Freedom Law Center said the four Christians were arrested by Dearborn police officers while speaking about their faith to Muslims.
The Christians spent the night in jail and were accused of “breaching the peace.” However, Muise won acquittals from a jury for all the defendants in a criminal trial.
After the trial, Muise, along with Yerushalmi, filed a 96-page civil rights lawsuit against the city, Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Chief of Police Ronald Haddad, 17 police officers and two executives from the American Arab Chamber of Commerce. The plaintiffs are Acts 17 Apologetics, Nabeel Qureshi, David Wood, Paul Rezkalla and Josh Hogg.
“The judge’s ruling today is a huge victory for these Christians,” Muise said. “It allows the civil rights claims for the most egregious constitutional violations to proceed against the city and its officials. AFLC is committed to ensuring that our Constitution and not Shariah law, which makes it a crime to preach the Gospel to Muslims, is the supreme law in this country.
The city had argued that festival worker Roger Williams’ complaint to police about the Christians gave officers a reason to arrest them.
Muise and Yerushalmi, on behalf of the Christians, argued the ruling does not preclude the civil rights claims because it was based upon fabricated allegations, and the Christians did not have a full and fair opportunity to challenge the claims in the police reports prior to the ruling.
The federal judge agreed with the AFLC attorneys.
