Thomas More Law Center Represents Four Christian Missionaries Arrested at Arab Festival in Dearborn

ANN ARBOR, MI – In what some have described as police enforcement of Sharia law at the annual Dearborn Arab International Festival, last Friday night Dearborn Police Officers arrested four Christian missionaries and illegally confiscated their video cameras which were recording the events surrounding their arrests. The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, today announced it is representing all of the Christian missionaries.

Arrested on charges of Breach of the Peace are: Negeen Mayel, Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Rezkalla, and David Wood. Mayel, an eighteen year old female, whose parents emigrated from Afghanistan and a recent convert from Islam to Christianity, was also charged with failure to obey a police officer’s orders. She was approximately 100 feet away and videotaping a discussion with some Muslims when her camera was seized.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented, “These Christian missionaries were exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn, where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus. It’s apparent that these arrests were a retaliatory action over the embarrassing video of the strong arm tactics used last year by Festival Security Guards. This time, the first thing police officers did before making the arrests was to confiscate the video cameras in order to prevent a recording of what was actually happening.”

Thompson continued, “Contrary to the comments made by Police Chief Ron Haddad, our Constitution does not allow police to ban the right of free speech just because there are some hecklers. Not all police officers approve of the way their department treated these Christians.”

Robert Muise, Senior Trial Counsel with the Law Center in charge of the case, yesterday faxed a letter to Chief Haddad demanding that the three video cameras and tapes illegally seized from the missionaries be immediately returned.

The Law Center is also representing Pastor George Saeig who was prohibited by the Festival and Police authorities from distributing religious material at last year’s festival. That case is ongoing.

  1. Followed your link wakeup to see what you were talking about and saw the source of your discontent with the Thomas More Law Center.

    Debbie does some very good counter terrorism work but she also has a pattern of attacking a number of people personally within the counter terrorism groups now adding the TMLC to the list.

    The TMLC provides pro bono legal assistance to anyone whose Constitutional rights are violated. In this climate of the Islamists gaming our legal system with “lawfare” the TMLC is the first line of defense when under legal attack.

    On our 6/22 Radio Show we have a 45 minute uninterrupted interview with David Wood that everyone should listen to who is interested in this case -go to

    Because of this attack on Mr. Wood’s 1st Amendment rights, he will incur a heavy time and financial burden. The TMLC will cover his legal expenses, which could easily have run into the six figures if he was forced to utilize private counsel. David and his team will personally incur their travel and outside deposition expenses for the entire team – which over the course of the trial could run well over $10,000.

    Knowing the arrest possibility as being a legitimate reason for not attending the Arab Festival would have been enough for most people to not take the risk. David and his team knew the risks and still went in knowing that our 1st Amendment rights and the destructiveness Shariah law has on our fragile republic outweighed any concerns for personal safety or potential legal ramifications.

    David and his team along with the TMLC are true Patriots in every sense of the word.

    If you or Debbie ever want to discuss these matters as they relate to counter terrorism you have a personal invitation to call the show and we can talk about it.

  2. wakeup, you need some sleep. the “tmlc” are fighting for our liberties. sad that the police are protecting islam by violating our freedoms. keep preaching the truth, shine the light on sharia compliance,

  3. This is a Christian nation under Republic laws based on Christianity not Muslim law. We do not belong giving every cult in the world preference, if they want to live here live under the existing rules and laws. They can go back to their own country and practice their idealogy, not here.

  4. I say we flood Dearborn nexy year and make them arrest 1,000 of us in 2011 and the 10,000 of us in 2012. I’m willing to go to jail.

    • exactly – hindus, jews, christians, buddhists, atheists, gays – all those persecuted by Muslims around the world should stand up and make a loud, public statement the police, the public, and the media can not ignore – all on video

  5. How can this government be so stupid as to welcome
    a takeover of sharia law in Dearborn by defending
    them against Christianity?

  11. I have just a few questions. Is it a Dearborn city ordinance that public gatherings have to be seperated by “x” distance? If so, that would be why the cops asked them to move down the street? If Muslim faithful were standing just outside a Christian festival would the same thing happen? The churches in Dearborn should join together and have an event, get a parade permit, dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s, and see what happens.

  12. This is pathetic and rediculous to allow people to come here to our nation and then they try to subvert it to be the way they want it instead of going by our Constitution and Bill of Rights which says we have Freedom of speech and Freedom of Religion for all not just a select few. These Christians need to be released since they did nothing wrong for speaking to others and giving out literature so people can go to God’s heaven . Since God sent his Son , the Lord Jesus Christ to die for all our sins on the cross , and he was buried , and rose from the dead the third day, was seen of men , and went back up to heaven. And all who will repent of their sins and trust him as their personal Saviour and Lord God can have God’s gift of eternal life in heaven by faith. , Sincerely ;

    • Oh no. Instead Allah guides the people to the pedophile, Mohammad so that he may select the youngest of the children to serve as his sex slave until they reach the ripe age of 9 years old so he may marry them and they may give birth to the next generation of suicide bombers and bloodthirsty devil spawn of Islam.

  18. It is time for Americans, about 100,000 of us, to arm up and appear at this festival. Take your cameras and open carry. Let’s see how they like It! We need to do this for real.

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
