Out with the police … in with 'Sharia patrols'?

Minneapolis 'City of Lakes'A Messianic Jewish leader is warning that if left unchecked, an evil alliance in Minnesota could result in complete devastation of the Twin Cities.

In the wake of the May 25th death of George Floyd while being arrested in Minneapolis, there have been calls to completely disband the Minneapolis Police Department. In fact, the Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously today approving a radical proposal to change the city charter to allow dismantling of the city's police department.

"Doing so would first require amending the city charter," AP reports. "Draft language of the amendment posted online would replace the department with a Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention, 'which will have responsibility for public safety services prioritizing a holistic, public health-oriented approach.'

"The amendment goes on to say the director of the new agency would have 'non-law-enforcement experience in community safety services, including but not limited to public health and/or restorative justice approaches.' It also provides for a division of licensed peace officers, who would answer to the department's director."

Jan Markell is founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, which is based in Minneapolis. During an appearance on American Family Radio Thursday, Markell said the area's roughly 200,000 Somali refugees in the area have their own idea of what will replace the police.

"And that would Muslim patrols. You could call them Sharia patrols," she stated. "They have this in Europe. It doesn't work, of course, but nonetheless this is what they've implemented in parts of Europe.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"If they think that's going to solve any kind of police harassment or brutality issues, [they need] to wake up."

Markell argues that the freedoms of Minnesotans are being threatened by the what she sees as a "Red-Green Alliance" – red being communism and green being Islam – which has already wreaked destruction in the Twin Cities.

"Islam and communism are coming together to do ultimate destruction – and you know what the outcome is going to be," she offered. "It's going to be complete devastation. And this can be coming to any 'Blue' city [or state]. Elections have consequences."

According to The Associated Press, the proposed amendment before the city council was expected to be approved, but it's just a first step. It now goes to a policy committee and to the city's Charter Commission for formal review.
