SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a South Dakota man who was asked to leave an anti-Islam event is facing a felony charge after he livestreamed himself brandishing weapons and making threats to the public.

Attorney General Marty Jackley and Lincoln County State’s Attorney Tom Wollman said Friday that 45-year-old Ehab Abdulmutta Jaber of Sioux Falls has been charged with one count of terrorist threats.

Authorities say Jaber was escorted out of the event April 9 after he was observed filming on his cellphone and carrying a pistol. Officials say he was later found to be streaming threats to the public and brandishing guns and ammunition.

Authorities say law enforcement seized guns and methamphetamine during a search of his home.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Jaber has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Muslim Who Threatened Christians in Facebook Live Charged As a Terrorist

CBN News previously reported that Jaber was at the Worldview Weekend rally, filming the event via Facebook Live. He was also carrying a Quran and a handgun.

One of the event’s off-duty police officers noticed Jaber and asked him to abide by event rules and stop filming the conference. When the officer asked for his name, Jaber lied, calling himself  “John Smith, the Muslim John Smith.”

Jaber left the event and later posted two more Facebook live videos of himself sitting in a car parked outside the conference. He pulled out several weapons and repeatedly told the camera “be scared” and “be terrified.” He taunted believers in a speech laced with profanity.

The conference, held on April 9, addressed the extreme dangers of Islamic teaching.

Pastor Sharam Hadian, an ex-Muslim who converted to Christianity, and Brannon Howse, a Christian author and radio host, spoke to the crowd of about 500 men, women, and children. They didn’t know Jaber was secretly recording them.

Hadian and Howse told that Capital Journal, a South Dakota newspaper, they were not anti-Muslim, but concerned with those who use Islamic teachings to promote violence.

Jaber was among 70 conference protestors. He wore a shirt with a printed message that read “I am a Muslim,” and indicated that he “conceal carried” a handgun.

Police officers later found guns and methamphetamine in his home, and the Minnehaha County state’s attorney is prosecuting Jaber for possessing meth.

When asked why he filmed the event, Jaber replied, “Because I can. Because I am an American citizen.”

“There’s a lot of people out there who are going to think that because I’m Muslim I shouldn’t have that right, but tough,” he said. “Build a time machine, go back in time and change the Constitution and we’ll talk about it then.”

Howse views the incident differently.

“With each brandishing of the five weapons, including two assault rifles, he would say ‘be scared’ or ‘be terrified,’ ” Howse wrote in a Facebook post. “Ask yourself if a white ‘Christian’ did this at a Muslim conference would he be arrested or charged?”

  1. Ehab Abdulmutta Jaber of Sioux Falls is a direct threat to others as should by his videos. He belongs in Jail for 500 counts of Threatening people who did nothing to him. 1 year for each count. When you hit a 200 year sentence it automatically gets converted into a Death Penalty by Firing Squad to be carried out within 30 days. Sick of wasting money of these people who will never be rehabilitated. Just the lawyers getting rich off of the appeal money.

    • I agree, but the way things are today when it comes to Muslims don’t be surprised if this maniac sues and wins a sizable sum of money because this is clearly a case of “Islamophobia” according to the insane Liberals who support everything connected to Islam. I thought the definition of phobia was an irrational fear? having a fear of Muslims is very rational, especially in light of the atrocities they have been and still are committing on innocent men women and children for the past almost 1400 years.

  2. Liberal Judge will likely say he did not mean it and he’ll walk, may even send it to a sharia court, would be great if every liberal judge is removed from the bench,

  3. This is only the begging of things to come. The democrats along with muslim’s wants to rule the world thru any ways possible. Muslim’s have infiltrated America with the help from the Demo’s and Mexico Drug Cartels. If America falls the world will be thrown in destruction. Europe is mostly under muslin control and Canada are on their way with their muslin elected leader. The only chance we have is for Americans to stand up against the muslim’s Democrats and soros .

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
