A Muslim man escorted out of a Christian Conference in South Dakota went out to the parking lot and filmed himself on Facebook Live flashing multiple firearms, telling viewers they should be “terrified”. Police said he would not be arrested since “he wasn’t breaking any laws”.
Ehab Jaber from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, showed up at the Worldview Weekend Christian Conference on April 9, and began filming. 500 people were in attendance. A security representative asked him to stop. Jaber went out to his car where he videoed himself displaying three pistols and two assault-style rifles. Each gun was accompanied by profanity and the threat, “Be terrifed”. Jaber was wearing a t-shirt with the words, “I am a Muslim”, “I open carry”, and “I am only dangerous if you are stupid”.
Event organizer Brannon Howse posted stills from Jaber’s bizarre video on Facebook with the question, “Ask yourself if a white ‘Christian’ did this at a Muslim conference would he be arrested or charged?”
“He had a lot of guns with him, but he wasn’t breaking any laws,” KDLT quoted Sioux Falls Police Officer Sam Clemens as saying.
“He didn’t threaten anybody directly. He didn’t threaten any groups of people, anything like that, and it’s not illegal to carry guns or have guns with you,” he explained.
