If Terry Jones or anyone else can’t burn a Muslim scripture because city fathers are afraid of a riot, haven’t we destroyed his right to assemble and freedom of speech? Courts have ruled that burning an American flag or a Bible is legal because it’s an expression of freedom of speech, no matter how repulsive that may be to honest and good Americans.
Apparently, Muslims have taken over a U.S. city and are exercising their political muscle. Are we going to let them get away with it without negative comment, at least? No. They are still in the minority in America and are bound by the U.S. Constitution and local law. Deerborn, Michigan can set what the law is about burning a Koran, and if a group of people don’t like it they can file a suit and let the courts decide if it is legal or not. That’s the American way. 
Might doesn’t make right in this case or in any other. At the threat of a riot, city fathers caved. If I were mayor or a councilman of that city I would warn them about breaking the law, then would say go ahead and riot. Following the riot I would send the lot of them to jail for disturbing the peace and destruction of property. Then I would send them and the Muslim Brotherhood who directs their activities a big bill for the property damage. If they won’t pay it, have the judge sentence each of them to ten years in prison and/or begin extradition proceedings on all of these irresponsible, misinformed Muslims who won’t pay for damage they create. It’s the American way. 
I don’t believe all Muslims bad. But those who riot should be subject to the law in America, not to some foreign country’s idea of right and wrong.
The story below comes from American Vision and introduces a very serious problem for America if this is how it goes in every city where if Muslims don’t like something and they threaten to riot and destroy property. If I were the mayor I would say, go ahead and riot, but the destruction, injuries loss of life, and the cost of added police protection for innocent citizens is on you. Then enforce your words as per the above. If they can’t demonstrate in a peaceful manner get them out of here. They should be in jail long enough for them to remember where they are. 
This is America, land of the free, not Iran where people can demonstrate against anything American and get away with it. Jones has a right to burn a Qur’an if he paid for it. It’s a form of freedom of speech in America. We are not subject to Sharia law and should fight this kind of double standard intimidation at every opportunity. Elected officials of the City of Dearborn should be  taken to task and roundly criticized. Next election, these gutless wonders should be thrown out of office.  ________________________________________________
Dearborn, Michigan has become a Sharia enclave, much like those populating many European countries. The city of Dearborn, Michigan denied a permit Wednesday for Qur’an-burning Pastor Terry Jones’ planned protest outside the Islamic Center of America on Good Friday.
Islamic supremacists were handed a victory for their violent intimidation and threats. City spokeswoman Mary Laundroche said that Jones’ permit had been denied for “public safety reasons.” In other words, they’re afraid Muslims will riot. And so the rights of free Americans have to be curtailed.
Terry Jones burned a Qur’an. So what? What happened to the freedom of assembly, the freedom of speech, and the freedom of expression? Terry Jones is prohibited from rallying in Michigan for fear of Islamic violence. Is that how far down the Sharia rabbit hole we have gone? Why is it that any time American law comes into conflict with Islamic law, it is American law that has to give way?
