It seems that the Christians who were attacked by a mob during an Arab-American festival were not quite so innocent as we were led to believe.
This is one of the signs that they were carrying before the crowd started pelting them with stones and garbage:
And the leader of the group was holding up this:
Whatever sympathy that I may have had for these "Christians" is entirely gone. You do not go into a heavily Arab-Muslim community like Dearborn, Michigan, during an Arab-American festival, and get directly in their faces with the kind of atrocious nonsense that we see above.
I do not know that those guys deserved to be stoned, for chrissake, but the outrage of the community is more than understandable.
I need to learn to respect my initial instincts on stories like this. As I wrote yesterday:
I post this with some reluctance, but I've never seen anything quite like it.
It seems that my reluctance was justified and the Arab-Muslim community in Dearborn is owed an apology.
They have mine.
