Arabic Christian group sues City of Dearborn after police restrict its First Amendment rights

By Robert Spencer from Jihad Watch:

I received this email from my attorney, William Becker. It is a sad day when American law enforcement officials restrict the First Amendment rights of Americans in order to accommodate Muslims. As you know, Dearborn, Michigan, features the most highly concentrated population of Muslims in the nation. My clients, Arabic Christian Perspective (ACP), and Pastor George Saieg attend the annual Arab International street festival there every year handing out Christian material to Muslims. They do this along the public sidewalks that run along the street, where the festival is conducted. It is open to the public and admission is free. Business establishments along the street remain open during the festival. It is a bold thing to do, but in the five years ACP has been going there, it has never encountered any problems. Now, the Dearborn Police Department has asked ACP to stand on a single corner, where they will be unable to freely mingle with festival gatherers and unable to reach their intended audience. This is a violation of its First Amendment rights. The Thomas More Law Center, based in Ann Arbor, has agreed to assist me in this matter. Today they filed a complaint, and sent a letter to the city attorney. I will keep you post
