Muslim mobs in America are becoming a real problem.
Check it out:
The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit has decided to review a First Amendment complaint brought by Christians who were assaulted by a rock-throwing Muslim mob at an Arab festival in Dearborn, Michigan.
The case arose from the annual Arab International Festival in June 2012 when Wayne County sheriff’s deputies stood by while a Muslim mob threw rocks at Christians, bloodying them.
The officers then threatened the Christians with arrest if they didn’t leave the event.
The Christians brought a lawsuit against Wayne County over its officers’ actions, and a three-judge panel dismissed it.
But a majority of 6th Circuit judges has agreed to re-hear the case.
The case, shepherded by the American Freedom Law Center, isn’t the first time that Muslim mob violence has erupted at the Arab festival. Earlier, a group of Christians was awarded more than $100,000 in damages because of attacks there.
In the latest case, Robert J. Muise, senior counsel for the AFLC, called the decision to re-hear “great news for religious freedom and the freedom of speech.”
