Taken in that context, the pelting that these people take is enraging. Even more so is the seeming lack of concern from the Dearborn police.
But there is something that this video, and much of the reporting on it, does not mention as the most likely culprit in the anger of this crowd. What has not been mentioned, or shown, is that one of the members of this group showed up with a pigs head on the end of a stick (there are glimpses of it at about the 4:34, 4:55, 8:54, 10:46, 11:00, 18:51 mark of the video), which I can only conclude was meant to taunt, or enflame the Muslims.
I don't agree with the violence by the Muslims in the crowd, but I fail to see how a hogs head on a stick, at a Muslim festival, is "Christian outreach". In my opinion, this group wanted to cause a scene, get it on video, and post it to YouTube for publicity.
It is quite possible that the crowd would have reacted to this group in exactly the same way even without the hogs head on a stick. But, by having it, their credibility of purpose is now questionable, and groups out there like CAIR and others are going to point this out as proof of widespread Islamophobia.
"Christian" groups like this, and people like Terry Jones, cause more harm than good in the battle to point out the true dangers of Islamists and Sharia in America.
