MUSLIMS ATTACK CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA OVER SHARIA LAW AND CHRISTIANS WIN LAWSUIT! Just days ago a Detroit judge awarded over $100,000 in attorney's fees in the case of a Christian, George Saieg, who was assaulted by Muslims, and then falsely accused and arrested by Dearborn police officers at the Arab Festival. Now a federal judge in Michigan has decided to allow another civil-rights claim against the city of Dearborn by four other Christians, who were also assaulted and arrested at the Arab festival, to move forward. The four were arrested by Dearborn police officers while speaking about their Christian faith to Muslims. The Christians spent the night in jail and were accused of "breaching the peace." However, all four won acquittals from a jury in a criminal trial. After the trial, a 96-page civil rights lawsuit was filed against the city, Mayor John B. O'Reilly, Muslim 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 all Christians who are featured in this video. The judge's ruling is a huge victory for ALL Christians, and it allows the civil rights claims for the most egregious constitutional violations to proceed against the city and its corrupt officials. We are 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.

Opening statements in a long-awaited civil trial, accusing Arab Bank of providing material support to the Palestinian militant group Hamas, begin in U.S. federal court. Full Story: Arab Bank Plc was accused of providing extensive and substantial material support to the Palestinian militant group Hamas, as a long-anticipated civil trial against the Jordan-based bank began on Thursday in U.S. federal court in Brooklyn. In opening statements in U.S. federal court in Brooklyn, lawyers for the plaintiffs said the Amman, Jordan-based bank provided "extensive and substantial" material support to Hamas. A lawyer for Arab Bank told jurors the evidence will show it did not knowingly support the Islamist group, which runs Gaza and is currently locked in a military conflict with Israel. Close to 300 U.S. citizens who were the victims or the family members of victims of 24 attacks allegedly carried out by Hamas in Israel and the Palestinian territories between 2001 and 2004 sued the bank in 2004. They accuse Arab Bank of violating the U.S. Anti-Terrorism Act, which allows victims of U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations to seek compensation. The State Department designated Hamas a terrorist organization in 1997. "We hope that if the jury comes back with a liability verdict that this will be a powerful deterrent to international financial institutions who may currently be doing business with financial terrorist organizations," said plaintiffs' attorney Gary Osen outside of the courthouse. The case is believed to be the first civil court terrorism-financing case against a bank to go to trial in the United States. Lawyers for the plaintiffs said evidence will show that Arab Bank maintained accounts for Hamas operatives and processed more than $35 million (USD) in payments for the families of suicide bombers and those imprisoned or injured during the Second Intifada of the early 2000s. They also said the bank shared Hamas's ideology, and that executives have referred to Israel as the "enemy." "This will finally bring out to the public's attention the kind of business that banks have been doing with forbidden companies and terrorists," said plaintiffs' attorney Mark Werbner outside of the courthouse. "I think the jury is already starting to see records that in black and white show this bank was intentionally dealing with Hamas terrorists." Arab Bank has said it did not cause or provide material support for the attacks. In his opening statement, Shand Stephens, a lawyer for Arab Bank, called the 24 attacks "horrific," adding, "Our hearts go out to the victims." Most of the people and organizations the plaintiffs claim were affiliated with Hamas, and who received banking services from Arab Bank, were not designated as terrorists during the period in question, Stephens said. The bank could be liable for millions of dollars, according to a lawyer for the plaintiffs. The bank is somewhat limited in its defense because a judge overseeing an earlier phase of the case sanctioned it for failing to turn over certain documents. The bank claimed foreign bank privacy laws prohibited it from providing the records. As a result, jurors are allowed to infer, if they wish, that the bank's failure to do so meant that it had knowingly provided financial services to designated terrorist organizations. The trial comes as U.S. federal and state governments increase pressure on international banks' cross-border transactions, leading some to curtail transaction services.
