After being escorted out of a Christian conference for protesting with foul language, Ehab Jaber of South Dakota went on Facebook Live to show off the weapons he carries in his car while telling viewers that they should be “terrified.”
Formerly from Saudi Arabi, Jaber, a Muslim, showed up at the Christian Worldview weekend conference at the Hilton Garden Inn in Sioux Falls on April 9 just as they were discussing the Islamic persecution of Christians around the world, according to a report in The Blaze on Tuesday.
When confronted by a retired police officer who was working security for the event, Jaber said he was “the Muslim John Smith” and was immediately escorted out of the building.
The closed, ticketed event was attended by approximately 500 men, women, and children, which Jaber makes note of in the Facebook video posting.
“We didn’t have enough volunteers to be checking everyone coming in throughout the event,” said one of the event’s speakers, Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim, now Christian pastor. “This guy came in after the event started so the way the hotel was set up, there were just too many ways to get in. This was a private event, a closed event for Christians, but that’s how he got in because we just didn’t have the manpower to be checking everyone.”
Wearing a t-shirt that proclaimed, “I’m American, I’m a Muslim, I open carry, I conceal carry, and I’m dangerous only if you’re stupid,” Jaber showed up to the event with a Koran in his hand and began disrupting the proceedings and live streaming the conference on his phone, according to reports.
After being kicked out of the building, Jaber got into his car and, while sitting in the parking lot, went back to Facebook Live where he began ranting about how the parking lot was so full. He then said, “Ya’ know, if you want to be really scared?” before reaching behind him to pull out various handguns, including an AK-47, each time saying “be scared.”
Near the end of his post, Jaber pulled out an extended magazine and an AR-15, saying, “Be f***ing terrified.”
The Daily Caller reported that “representatives of the FBI and South Dakota police subsequently interviewed Jaber and determined that he had not broken any laws,” and he was not arrested.
