Demonstrations against Islamic law led to arrests, tense confrontations and physical fights in some U.S. cities Saturday amid several rallies sponsored by ACT for America, which the Southern Poverty Law Center designates as an anti-Muslim hate group.

The "March Against Sharia" was scheduled to take place in more than 20 cities, including New York, Dallas and Atlanta, and was projected to be ACT for America's largest protest against Islam.

We only resort violence in self-defense. Sometimes we employ preemptive self-defense.
Preemptive defense would be turning back the clock a few decades. The US effectively partnered with Islamic fundamentalists during the Cold War as a proxy against the Soviet Union. Now would be the time to cease inspiring a new generation of them. It's not like we can just go kill everyone in the Middle East. We of course could try (not that I would want this), but the rest of the world would turn on us in the process.

But when his family sued Teen Challenge in 2012 hoping to uncover what had happened, they quickly hit a wall. When he was admitted to the program, at age 20, Mr. Ellison signed a contract that prevented him and his family from taking the Christian group to court. Instead, his claim had to be resolved through a mediation or arbitration process that would be bound not by state or federal law, but by the Bible. “The Holy Scripture shall be the supreme authority,” the rules of the proceedings state.
