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.

U.S. District Court Judge Stephen J. Murphy III stated, “It is a reasonable inference from their allegations that [city officials] knew Williams’ complaint was pretextual.”

The federal judge noted that “[t]he indirect evidence of this conspiracy that was developed in state court and is already a part of the record in this case — including the videos and the testimony given by [city police officers] at their trial — elevates [the Christians’] accusations above the threshold of plausibility. ”

The federal judge also said, “The [state] district judge appears to have presumed the police reports submitted were truthful, and staked his probable cause determination on that presumption. Plaintiffs had no opportunity to either cross-examine the officers or take the stand themselves to contest the reports.”

And he ruled, “Finally, the district court was inattentive to the effect plaintiffs’ claims of First Amendment protection might have on the probable cause determination. . . . The Sixth Circuit has warned on previous occasions that Michigan’s ‘breach of peace’ statute is prone to such abuse.”

“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.

    its about time that the federal Judges stand up for the Constitution of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND NOT the pig shit laws of the sandbox ragheads country of iran and all the sleazy muslims law. its also about time that the feds told the muslims that their law will not win. i think we need to start standing up to the muslims like other countries. And the newest country to stand up to the muslims was Nicaragua they overtook the country and ran off the muslims president and now they are doing to the muslims what they did to the 100,000’s Christians and either they are on the run and leaving the country or they are being killed. I SAY GOOD ITS ABOUT TIME TO SHOW THE RAGHEADS WE ARENT PUTTING UP WITH THEIR PIGSHIT.

      The men in this country are all talk. I’ve yet to see any of them do anything to help our country out of this mess. Our ancestors would have gone to Washington by now, and yanked the politicians out of our government buildings by the scruff of their necks.

  9. Jay Dillon says:

    Is the work of the Muslims protected under the First Amendment, namely, is there any right to preach and lobby for “shariah law” (unconstitutional law), and is there any right to preach and work for “jihad” (seditious and treasonous speech, and work and operations supporting sedition and treason, to destroy the USA and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, to destroy the US government and people)? Do Muslims have a right to commit sedition and treason against the USA and the people of the USA? I don’t think so. This organizing of Muslims in Dearborn Michigan and elsewhere is criminal activity; it should be prosecuted under the RICO Act, as organized crime. As for the religious freedom of Muslims: This “freedom” does not apply to Muslims and Islam, because Muslims and Islam violently oppose and attack those of all other religious beliefs, faiths, and ways of thinking, including agnostics and atheists. Muslims and Islamofascists organize and raise money for the purpose of destroying all other religious groups and peoples, and to destroy all other cultures, and to destroy all national governments, replacing every government with a “worldwide caliphate.” Because Muslims and Islam oppose freedom of religion for anyone and everyone, including themselves, they represent a seditious and treasonous force, a group working to overthrow the US government, and should be banned completely from every nation on Earth.

    • Jay Dillon says:

      Supporting “freedom of religion” for Muslims and Islamofascism, is actually working against “freedom of religion” for everyone, including Muslims themselves. It means supporting fascism, and supporting treason and sedition against the USA and other Western democracies.

    • Have you read the bible? There’s a verse in there that says all non Christians should die. Whereas is the Quran there is also a verse that says the same thing, but there is also a verse on religious tolerance. Do native Americans blame EVERY white person for what happened to them? You cannot judge many based on the acts of few.

  10. As the neo-Communist take over more and more of America gets replaced with their sick globalist-negativity.
    It is time for Nations to be saved from the great whale that is devouring them.

  11. Anti ObamaHolder says:

    All Muslims should be loaded on a ship and set out to the ocean and when far off shore blow the boat to hell and back. I am sick of our rights being trampled on by these hateful morons who have infested our society with their hate and violence against Christians and Americans. It is time to take back AMERICA.

    • mother f ****** says:

      TRUMP 4 PRESIDENT 2016 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • You can’t take back a country that isn’t yours nor can you fight for land that you stole.

      • Anti ObamaHolder says:

        I was born and raised in the United States of America so this is as much
        my country as anyone’s. I serve in law enforcement and have worked hard
        for what I have and I will be damned if I will let illegals or Muslims
        come into our nation and take what they want and get benefits that Vets
        and others who have served in the armed forces and given so much for but
        are ignored by this Muslim Terrorist-Treasonous Dirt-bag in the white
        house so he can give Muslims and illegals our rightful benefits, the
        fool who lied to get elected, and still lies to the American people
        every time he speaks. This is so wrong.

  12. Hey let’s not fight over land that we had to steal to get initially.
