Is that festival not being held on public property? Now, I will admit that this Christian group goes to the Arab American Festival every year to
stir-up a violent reaction by Muslims. However, the Muslim attendees are responsible for their own actions. That Christian group is not invading
private property, but are attending a public event held on city property. Anybody can attend and say what they want. The Muslim attendees are just
going to have to ignore them and settle for it. This is not Baghdad or Cairo, but an American city.
People have freedom of speech. Nothing is stopping the Muslim attendees from protesting at Christian events or counter protesting at the Arab American
Festival. The folks who are wrong here are the ones that resort to violent behavior. Throwing blunt objects? I don't care about the obscenities being
hurled in their direction. However, I am against throwing things at people that could cause bodily injury. I realize the Christian attendees may be
there only to incite a violent reaction. Why do the Muslim people of Dearborn get so upset over this? Just ignore them, and go about their business.
They are eating right out of the Christian's hands. I say that, because they go in there expecting a violent confrontation to pull the martyr card.
Why give them the satisfaction?
edit on 26-6-2012 by Jakes51 because: I changed "Muslim Festival," to "Arab American Festival," as to not
generalize the attendees and to reference it by the proper name.
