Christian conference threatened by Muslim man flashing firearms on Facebook Live
A South Dakota Muslim who was escorted out of a Christian conference after protesting it with foul language took to Facebook Live to tell viewers they should be “terrified” as he flashed multiple firearms in his car.
The man in the video is identified as Ehab Jaber is a South Dakota resident who is self-described as being formerly from from Saudi Arabia. According to World Net Daily, Jaber infiltrated the Christian Worldview Weekend conference at the Hilton Garden Inn in Sioux Falls on April 9th, 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.
It was a ticketed event but we didn’t have enough volunteers to be checking everyone coming in throughout the event,” said Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim turned Christian pastor and one of the speakers. “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.”
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.”

According to the Daily Caller, FBI representatives and South Dakota police have interviewed Jaber, and determined that his actions broke no laws during his display.
