David Wood: The Islamisation of America: Why Christians were Arrested in Dearborn, Michigan

mp3 available here

David Wood, Evangelical Christian apologist to the Muslims, will address the theme: "The Islamisation of America: Why Christians were Arrested in Dearborn, Michigan".

On June 19th, Christian apologists David Wood and Nabeel Qureshi of the Acts 17 Apologetics Ministry, and two other Christians, Negeen and Paul Rezkalla, were arrested for proselytizing Muslims... "Where did this arrest take place?", you might ask... "Was it in Saudi Arabia?"... "Iran, perhaps?"... No... It happened right here in the good ole USA!

These Christians were on their annual visit to the Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Michigan (see, and, according to David Wood & Nabeel Qureshi, were in complete compliance with the rules set by officials there.

As Qureshi described it:

"At one point, we came across a festival volunteer who seemed to take issue with us simply being at the festival. We could tell he had a problem with us, and so we asked 'What are we doing wrong?' He said 'Put the camera and microphone down, and I'll tell you.'... So I obliged, handing the microphone to David and asking him to not record the man... About 20 minutes later, to shouts and cheers of 'Allahu Akbar!' we were all being led away from the festival in handcuffs..."

You can view the story on YouTube here:

Our guest tonight, David Wood, is a former atheist who converted to Christianity based on the historical evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus. David now debates both atheists and Muslims and is co-director of Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries, an organization he founded with Nabeel Qureshi, a convert from Islam to Christianity. David also contributes to, which he considers to be the very best resource available anywhere, bar none, to discover and learn the true history and teachings of Islam. He personally operates the blog site

David's ministry comes very highly recommended by frequent "Iron Sharpens Iron" guest, renowned Christian apologist and biblical scholar Dr. James R. White of Alpha & Omega Ministries. You can listen to other interviews with David Wood on "Iron Sharpens Iron" on free downloadable MP3 format

Waiting for the MP3 file on this one. Hopefully it will appear soon.

There was a power outage just before the broadcast. Chris quickly moved the show to another station. Hopefully, he recorded a CD backup.

Still no MP3 file, so perhaps Chris didn't have a backup CD?

Hi James

Sorry for pressing you but could you please upload this file (if available)

Long shot: Is there any other site where we can listen to it?
