Sterling Heights Gets Jihadist Fliers

From The Macomb Daily this past Friday:

Anti-Jewish, anti-Christian fliers found on cars

Police said anti-Jewish and anti-Christian fliers were found on cars parked in a lot on the northwest corner of 15 Mile and Ryan roads.

Sterling Heights police Detective Sgt. Paul Jesperson said three separate complaints were filed by residents Tuesday who found the fliers on their windshields.


He said the flier said: "Kill Jews and Christians if they don't believe in Allah and Mohammad."


It further advises people to "Fight those who do not believe."


"I really don't know what it means other than suggesting violence to Jews and Christians," Jesperson said. "We certainly have no intentions of stifling someone's religious beliefs but it is most certainly a violation of the law if you're condoning violence with this hate literature."


Jesperson said police received three complaints and the fliers were seen on at least 15 other cars in the parking lot.


He said there was no damage to the cars and no one else filed a complaint.

"I would imagine many people thought this was some type of advertising flier and didn't even read it," Jesperson said.


Sam Richardson, who was shopping at the Kroger store on Tuesday, saw the flier on his windshield while walking to his car and asked his 11-year-old daughter to remove it.


He said she walked toward him while she was reading the flier and then she started crying.

"She asked me what the flier was all about," said Richardson, an electrician at General Motors. "I tried to explain to her what it meant and I then had to explain it to my 7-year-old son."


The operators of the New Sahara restaurant, located near the Kroger store, said they are Chaldean Catholics and do not condone violence against others who have opposite religious beliefs.


Jay, a longtime waiter at Sahara, said he was unaware of the fliers.


"These are touchy times and I don't want my name used," said Jay. "But we are peace-loving people who love the United States and feel all people can live here harmoniously."

Richardson said it is hard for a parent to explain to his children why some people want to kill others simply because of religious disagreements. He told his son and daughter that regardless of their feelings about another individual, a person in the United States has a right to practice any religion.


"We try to protect our children but we cannot shield them from all of the hate in this world," said Richardson, a Sterling Heights resident. "The person who put this flier on my car saying someone should be killed understandably upset my daughter and son."


Police said they will continue to investigate the fliers.

Now, imagine the same story except substitute muslims as the intended targets. Can you say FRONT PAGE NEWS??? Picture the same story except substitute blacks as the intended targets. Are you beginning to see Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson leading a parade of we shall overcomers?

Since christians and jews are the intended targets, it will get no airplay, it barely warrants an investigation. This story has been around for a few days and it hasn't even merited a one liner crawl on the bottom your tv screen while watching the latest coverage of Brittney's missteps with the courts.

If I find one of these leaflets on my car, the first thing I will do is call the media. Get them out there with their cameras to film my next call, which will be to the FBI to inform them of my fear that my vehicle may have been rigged to explode. It certainly would not be beyond the realm of believability, nor would it be wise to treat it in any other way but extreme caution, given the affinity muslims seem to have using car bombs to attack their enemies.

I'm afraid it's just a matter of time for it to happen here and I'll be damned if I will be their first victim.

Billy,

You know you are exactly right. That is what we are all missing. I have witnessed conferences of the NAMA where they encourage Muslims to keep cell phones with cameras on at all times.

If an infidel should be bothering you, like smoking a cigarette or showing too much skin - You are encouraged to speak to them about their behavior and how it is displeasing to Allah. If, said Infidel, becomes displeased with you and begins to yell = get that camera phone and start taping while your family members call CAIR, FBI, & local media.

We are even too afraid to speak when under attack. It is because we really don't want to believe they LITERALLY want to hurt us. We fool oursevles into believing they are just letting off steam.

It makes me angry that so many believe this way. I also understand how fearful the reality is and sometimes wish I could go live "underground"

I agree anonymous. People are too afraid to speak or see what is happening. They have been injected with multicultural and politically correct novacaine.

Multiculturalism and PC, possibly the Mephistophiles of our time. Conjured by liberals who are now either unwilling or unable to see their reality.

BTW - Kudos Mr. Clancy for the IQ quiz - prompted me to review some history and literature that were learned too long ago for immediate recall!

"KILL CHRISTIANS AND JEWS"
and the Sterling Heights police detective doesn't understand what that means?

It certainly DOES NOT mean a "suggestion of violence" - where do they get these people? They should write for SNL weekly news updates.

suggesting violence - Oi, Oi, Oi, Vey, Vey, Vey
