It's hardly surprising that the people trying to impose Sharia law on American cities are willing to not only disobey basic laws, but also resist police procedures.
Dearborn Heights, MI is near Dearborn in suburban Detroit, which has the second highest Muslim population in the United States, trailing only New York City. Dearborn's Muslim population is well over 29,000. As to Dearborn Heights, the city's mayor says Arab immigrants make up 25% of the population.
So, it's no shock that Muslims in that neck of the woods feel like they own the place and can do whatever they like.
Muslim woman Malak Kazan was arrested in Dearborn Heights for driving with a suspended license. After all, what is a little thing like a state-issued drivers' license? Allah makes the rules, right?
When Kazan was booked and it came time for mugshots, police officers insisted she remove her hijab, the cloth that Muslim women use to cover their heads. This is perfectly reasonable. A mugshot is only useful if you can see the perpetrator's face.
Now, Kazan is suing Dearborn Heights police because she claims she was humiliated and defiled because she had to uncover her head in front of men.
"We don't always have enough female officers present in the station," Dearborn Heights Police Chief Lee Gavin told WJBK. He said hats and other head coverings "can contain concealable items that could pose a threat or chance of injury to the cops or to themselves," but Kazan's attorney, Amir Makled, scoffed at the suggestion, saying her client was "only doing a booking photograph."
She claims this was a violation of her freedom of religion. A freedom, it's worth noting, that Muslim countries don't extend to Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, or atheists. It's also a freedom that she and her ilk in Michigan would love to destroy by imposing Sharia law.
It becomes more and more difficult to pretend that Muslim radicals want to live peacefully in the United States. It becomes more and more difficult to pretend that they aren't here to destroy our way of life.
