Back in June, four Christians were arrested in Michigan for passing out leaflets at an Arab festival. Remember this? The Christians were arraigned and are being represented by the same brilliant legal team that brought my free speech lawsuit against Detroit, the Thomas More Law Center.
Yesterday, Muslims were proselytizing and passing out Islamic leaflets at a fair in Minnesota. The AP plays it this way: Muslims Take to Minn. State Fair to Repair Image (hat tip Her Royal Whyness). The police did nothing. Why two sets of rules for Muslims and non-Muslims? The sharia (Islamic law).
So based on that - why weren't these Muslims arrested?
Muslims Proselytize at Minnesota fair
FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. Despite the smells of fried dough and roasted meat wafting from the Minnesota State Fair, Salim and Zuleyha Ozonder were focused on the people who were leaving, not the food or festivities beckoning from across the street.
Each time a new wave of people exited, the young Minneapolis residents who hadn't eaten all day tried to press into their hands a small, glossy card that read "Islam Explained" on one side. On the other, it had about 180 words of background on a religion whose adherents fear is being misunderstood by too many Americans as violent and depraved.
"You just want people to take the card, spend a minute reading it and say, 'Oh. They're not terrorists,'" said 27-year-old Zuleyha. She and her husband, like other Muslims, were fasting during daylight hours for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
For most fairgoers, the last thing on their mind is religion particularly the renewed controversy over Islam in America amid tension over plans for an Islamic center and mosque a few blocks from New York City's ground zero. But volunteers with the Minnesota chapter of Islamic Circle of North America saw the mostly white, Christian fair crowd as just the type of audience that might benefit from greater understanding.
The "Great Minnesota Get-Together" is one of the largest and best-attended state fairs in the country. Every day for 12 days through Labor Day, hundreds of thousands of people stream onto the fairgrounds north of St. Paul to scarf highly caloric food, stare at farm animals, clamber onto carnival rides and enjoy concerts by country singers and classic rock dinosaurs.
"What are they doing here?" said Paulette Kahlstorf of Zimmerman, who declined a card from Zuleyha as she left the fairgrounds with her husband. "I didn't come here for that."
A minute later, Kahlstorf elaborated that she didn't have a problem with all Muslims: "Just the radical ones." And she said she didn't mind their decision to hand out the cards, which include a toll-free number that anyone can call to request a free copy of the Quran.
"You know, I guess we let all the politicians come out here and schmooze, so we might as well let these folks as well," said Kahlstorf. "Doesn't mean I need to listen to them."
They're the support personnel.
I can't believe this hasn't been tossed out yet to save embarrassment to the idiot cops that arrested them, and the Sharia mongers apparently now in control in Dearbornstan.
The difference is Minnesota vs the socialist state of Michigan. In Minnesota they still respect the rights of everyone.
sharia law coming one step at a time.
Don't expect any consideration.
Tolerance means I cannot hit them with a bat. That’s it.
Understanding or empathizing is not required
And yes... If Christians were arrested (with?? Why??) then so should these people
terrorism is winning big time...
Watch the video, they read the “official police report”... and then show how the video contradicts they police report.
Its simply another case of cops acting stupidly, and lying to justify their actions, I doubt it had anything to do with Christian or Arabs.
The video/audio complete discredits the lies in the police report.
Haven’t heard much about the Huttaree Militia lately either.
Ever heard of The Zebra Killings?
The media never wanted you to know about them.
I read about them a long time ago. I re-researched them tonight when reading about the “Beat Whitey Night” at the Des Moines Fairgrounds just recently, where blacks are getting away with crimes that whites would NEVER get away with.
The Zebra Killings: (snip)-”Several of the murderers turned out to be Nation of Islam members who believed that killing white people would ensure them a spot in heaven.”
Hey, folks.....let’s not coddle those that wish our death, ok? “PC” is for “pathetically comatose”.
if we mess with muslums they will sneak up and kill us
