Breitbart (h/t Calpax) In a Facebook Live video allegedly filmed in a car outside a Christian conference in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the Muslim man identified as Ehab Jaber brandishes numerous guns and warns people to “be scared.”
The Blaze Ehab Jaber is a South Dakota resident who is self-described as being formerly from Saudi Arabia. According to World Net Daily, Jaber infiltrated the Christian Worldview Weekend conference on April 9 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Sioux Falls, as they were discussing the Islamic persecution of Christians around the world. The event was being attended by around 500 men, women, and children.
Jaber, wearing a shirt that read “I’m American, I’m a Muslim, I open carry, I conceal carry, and I’m dangerous only if you’re stupid,” and carrying a Koran reportedly began disrupting the proceedings and live streaming the conference on his phone.
A retired police officer who was working security for the event confronted Jaber, who told him he was “the Muslim John Smith.” The officer promptly escorted Jaber out of the building.
Jaber went to his car, and still sitting in the parking lot, once more took to Facebook Live where he began complaining about how many people were in attendance. It was then that Jaber asked “ya know, if you want to be really scared?”
Jaber then reached behind him and began displaying various handguns and an AK-47, each time saying “be scared.” Pulling out an extended magazine and an AR-15 he added “be f***ing terrified.”
