The news in this post hits just a little too close to home. Dearborn, Michigan is considered by many to by the Muslim capital of the USA. There are mosques and many Muslims living in and around this city in northern America.
On June 19, three Christian men were witnessing at the Arab International Festival. During an intense, yet respectful dialog, the police arrested Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, David Woods, and Paul Rezkalla.
According to the Persecution Times article, Steven Atkins, a resident of Toronto, Canada, said, “I never thought I would see this in America." Mr. Atkins went on to say, “When Dr. Quereshi was arrested I heard people clapping and applauding, and some said ‘Allahu Akbar.’” There appeared to be a crowd of around 15-20 people listening to the discussion and then witnessing the arrest.
Mr. Atkins also said, “It was an intense discussion, but it was not unruly. There was no threat of violence. It’s becoming more restrictive here than in Canada.” I believe things like this will become more and more commonplace here in the "land of the free." Pray that God will protect these gentlemen and that many Muslims will find Jesus.
