Safe Mode: On
Muslims Judge Let's Muslim Crminal Go Free

Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest
Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween
parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie
Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to
his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an
open-and-shut case. That’s not what happened, though.

defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were
illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in
any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year
old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his
young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.

The case went to trial, and as circumstances would dictate, Judge Mark
Martin is also a Muslim. What transpired next was surreal. The Judge
not only ruled in favor of the defendant, but called Mr. Perce a name
and told him that if he were in a Muslim country, he’d be put to death.
Judge Martin’s comments included,

had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in
predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the
faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge
you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and
walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you
start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little
bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and
Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries
something like this is definitely against the law there. In their
society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in
their society.

Judge Martin then offered a lesson in Islam, stating,

is not just a religion, it’s their culture, their culture. It’s their
very essence their very being. They pray five times a day towards Mecca
to be a good Muslim, before you die you have to make a pilgrimage to
Mecca unless you are otherwise told you can not because you are too ill
too elderly, whatever but you must make the attempt. Their greetings wa-laikum as-Salâm (is
answered by voice) may god be with you. Whenever, it’s very common
when speaking to each other it’s very common for them to say uh this
will happen it’s it they are so immersed in it.

Martin further complicates the issue by not only abrogating the First
Amendment, but completely misunderstanding it when he said,

what you have done is you have completely trashed their essence, their
being. They find it very very very offensive. I’m a Muslim, I find it
offensive. But you have that right, but you’re way outside your
boundaries or first amendment rights. This is what, and I said I spent
about 7 and a half years living in other countries. when we go to other
countries it’s not uncommon for people to refer to us as ugly
Americans this is why we are referred to as ugly Americans, because we
are so concerned about our own rights we don’t care about other
people’s rights as long as we get our say but we don’t care about the
other people’s say”

But wait, it gets worse. The Judge refused to allow the video into evidence, and then said,

that aside I’ve got here basically.. I don’t want to say he said she
said but I’ve got two sides of the story that are in conflict with each


“The preponderance of, excuse me, the burden of proof… “


has not proven to me beyond a reasonable doubt that this defendant is
guilty of harassment, therefore I am going to dismiss the charge”

The Judge neglected to address the fact that the ignorance of the law
does not justify an assault and that it was the responsibility of the
defendant to familiarize himself with our laws. This is to say nothing
of the judge counseling the defendant that it is also not acceptable
for him to teach his children that it is acceptable to use violence in
the defense of religious beliefs. Instead, the judge gives Mr. Perce a
lesson in Sharia law and drones on about the Muslim faith, inform
everyone in the court room how strongly he embraces Islam, that the
first amendment does not allow anyone ” to piss off other people and other cultures” and he was also insulted by Mr. Perce’s portrayal of Mohammed and the sign he carried.

This is a travesty. Not only did Judge Martin completely ignore video
evidence, but a Police Officer who was at the scene also testified on
Mr. Perce’s behalf, to which the Judge also dismissed by saying the
officer didn’t give an accurate account or doesn’t give it any weight.

Here is a link to the video that includes the audio of the Judge during the trial:

Here’s coverage of the incident from the local ABC affiliate

Needless to say, this is totally, completely and unequivocally
unacceptable. That a Muslim immigrant can assault a United States
citizen in defense of his religious beliefs and walk away a free man,
while the victim is chastised and insulted by a Muslim judge who then
blamed the victim for the crime committed against him is a horrible

This reeks of those cases we used to read about where a woman is blamed for her own rape because she “was asking for it” by virtue of the clothing she chose to wear, and then having the Judge set the rapist free.

I can promise you this, you have not heard the last of this issue. Not by a long shot.
