Minnesota: The ‘Islamic Republic’

Monday, September 13th, 2010

A Messianic Jewish leader is outraged that officials at the Minnesota State Fair recently gave a group of Muslims great access to fairgoers so they could distribute Islamic propaganda.

[Jan Markell, founder and director of Minnesota-based Olive Tree Ministries] is also upset that the Muslims were given better access to the fairgoers than permitted for Christians who were trying to hand out gospel tracts.

“They’re almost always told, ‘If you’re going to do it, you’ve got to go many, many blocks away,'” she reports. “So now we see that Muslims were there handing out tracts right at the gate — special privilege. They’re not sent a long way away.”

The Olive Tree Ministries founder decides that this favoritism awarded to the Muslim couple is just another example of the bend-over-backwards preferential treatment given to the Islamic population of her state, prompting her to call it “The Islamic Republic of Minnesota.”
