“Heavily Armed Muslim Man” story making national news, while he claims he was waving guns around to act “against stupidity.”

The story on the man who showed up at the Sioux Falls Christian Rally brandishing weapons, and going out to his vehicle and making a threatening video telling people to “be scared” is making national news, as noted by this story on CBS-Los Angeles:

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – As the national manhunt for alleged Facebook killer Steve Stephens comes to a close, another disturbing Facebook Live video has surfaced showing a self-described Muslim man making apparent threats toward attendees at a Christian conference.

A video posted April 9 by Ehab Jaber shows a man believed to be Jaber filming a copy of the Koran before scanning the crowd with his camera during a portion of the Worldview Weekend rally in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Read it here.

When someone waves guns, and tells people to “be scared,” it just adds fuel to the fire when people express concerns about radicalized muslims within the country’s borders. And the CBS Report comes on the same day as a story on the “FBI Investigating Radical Terrorists in All 50 States:”

Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike “each and every single day.”

The FBI has “open terrorist investigations in all 50 states,” according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.

Read that here.

What was the video makers side of the story? As related on KSFY News last night, he admitted he was armed. But claimed it was “against stupidity:”

Jaber also said that he wasn’t threatening anyone in particular.

“I’m not armed against the regular citizen,” he said. “I’m not armed against Christians or Jews or against women or children. I’m just armed against stupidity and oppression.”

Despite all of the negative attention, criticism and even death threats, he said he’s received …

“I did it, I’ll do it again and again just like any American,” he said. “I didn’t go to a conference, I went to an anti-Muslim rally.”

and…

Jaber said the FBI visited him later that week to talk to him about the video.

Hadian said in the next city he and Howse visited, the FBI was waiting for them at their event location to make sure the pair knew about the video and “forced” them to hire off-duty police officers at their event, in addition to the security and police who were already going to be there.

Read that here.

So, Jaber he claims he was acting “against stupidity”  when he waved several guns around, using profanity, and telling us to be scared. No, I think what he was doing was the actual definition of stupidity.

If Mr. Jaber wanted to communicate that we shouldn’t be afraid of Islam, as he tried to explain on KSFY news last night, he did an awful job in doing so.

    The Argus Leader, which isn’t much better than butt wipe these days, is hiding what is really going on here.

    Dana Ferguson is so politically correct she won’t even say what this Muslim was up to. All she does is write about gays and lesbians

      Or, you know, he could just let the FBI and SFPD handle it. If he wasn’t before, I’m pretty sure this clown is on the ‘Watch List’ now.

    Lora Hubbel is now calling this American a terrorist and is going full Hubbelmania on this. What next Lora ISIS C-130’s flying in to Sioux Falls for an armed takeover?

    Protesting with 7 guns and a rant about the people inside needing to be terrified is clearly the lack of good judgement. Islam is not a a peaceful religion and Ehab Jaber helps to confirm that. Wasn’t the man who killed people at the FL nightclub on the Watch List? Hopefully the SFPD will do their best to watch this creep and Wollman will make a decision to prosecute based on the law. We consider the videos he made threatening and he seems to be on the verge of actually killing people who do not believe the Koran. Is he headed to our schools or churches next? We saw the post where he talks about watching our teens at the club; does anyone know where this “club” is? Want to make sure our teen stays far away from events he is at.

      While I do not agree with what Ehab Jaber did the hysteria and xenophobia is not helping. There is a great deal of fear being generated and with your comment about Islam not being a peaceful religion Christianity does not exactly have a perfect track record either. Actually many religions don’t. It appears with all the hysteria people on all sides are arming up out of fear. Next thing it takes a life of its own and someone acts out with terrible consequences. At least the guy who traveled from another state to rescue the supposed victims in “Pizza Gate” did not harm anyone.

      Stop this nonsense and reach out rather than fan the flames!

                As we should! Adding to what has been mentioned I have noticed on two occasions that those with red hair and happened to be left handed have been charged and convicted for various crimes. We need to keep at least one eye on those redheads that are left handed.

        Please tell me which Christian groups do the horrendous things Islam does? Do you know about the Koran? How about women’s rights in Islamic communities? Islam is NOT a peaceful religion. Immigration without assimilation is invasion. Take one look at Europe. A man with 7 guns, making threatening rants is pretty scary. How about you have this guy over for some conversation, I will pass.

          “he horrendous things Islam does? ‘— Islam doesn’t DO anything any more than christianity does anything, it is some of those many factions of each that do evil things…. You tell me if YOU and every person claiming christianity are the same as these extremest CHRISTIAN groups—– If no, that is exactly what you people are doing to every person of the islamic faith…. It is called ignorant bigotry

          A few christian extremist groups…..

          Christian-Identity Church
          Kingdom Identity Ministries
          America’s Promise Ministries
          Lord’s Resistance Army
          National Liberation Front of Tripura
          Antibalaka
          The Christian Identity Movement
          The Army of God
          Eastern Lightning, a.k.a. the Church of the Almighty God
          The Phineas Priesthood
          The Concerned Christians

            I am looking at that list of churches I have never heard of, suspecting that none of them adhere to the doctrine of Apostolic Succession, which would mean any claim of being Christian is invalid.

              1. Anne Beal

                The Wisconsin Evangelical Lutherans believe the Pope is the Antichrist, Catholics aren’t Christians, and women are barred from leadership positions.

            1. Jaa Dee

              Can you not understand the point? These Christian groups are to christianity as radical factions of Islam are to the vast majority of muslems.— Can you people not understand something that basic?

              BTW — you make an assumption then decide which christians are not “real” christians”— You do know who does that? The extremist groups above and in Islam it is groups like the taliban, isi

              s, al qaeda.. etc—congratulations on making the lists..

            2. C. Ermle

              So-called Christians who adhered to “the doctrine of Apostolic Succession” actually slaughtered thousands of Hutterites and Mennonites, burning many at the stake, during the hey day of so-called “Apostolic Succession”. Even many Protestants joined in the killing spree to keep the faith pure, all in the name of Jesus, of course. It’s a nasty history. The sixteenth century mindset of these so-called “valid” Christians (many of whom were in the Apostolic Succession) was evil. I suggest such “Christianity” was totally invalid, and had nothing in common with Holy Scripture.

            The difference is what you are calling Christian are fakes. The Muslim Brotherhood is authentic Islam.

          “How about women’s rights in Islamic communities?”– Tell me about it—then I will show you some bible passages about how women and kids are supposed to be treated according to your bible that you evidently ignore..

          ” Islam is NOT a peaceful religion”— Tell me WHEN christianity has been a “peaceful religion” as you and other’ promote hate and insightful ignorance toward an entire population because of their religion… How many people are slaughtered in your bible? For what reasons were they ordered to be slaughtered?—————-“” Islam is NOT a peaceful religion”— I’ll give you just one example of hundreds of your oooooh so peaceful religion—In 1936, Germany was 96% christian..

            Islam is NOT a peaceful religion. Maybe you’ll get it one of these times. You are really reaching Jaa Dee. Are you willing to let Muslim refugees into your home? Ask some of the Aberdeen residents or people living in MPLS. It is you that is ignorant. Call me what you will, the Islam religion is the one of hate & death to all infidels.

    This guy was also being critical of the so-called anti-Muslim conference because it was causing Christian to be in fear of Muslims. There was a Muslim who showed up and participated in the Q&A, which proved what the conference presenters told us…we should not be concerned about Muslims, we should be concerned about the brand of Islam that is being pushed worldwide by the Muslim Brotherhood.

    This guy shows up with a Quran and uses his guns live on Facebook to promote us being “scared” and “terrified”, only proved that there are some Muslims that we need to be concerned about, and that we need to protect our communities from. Our governmental authorities need to take a serious look into what this guy was doing. It was definitely counter productive if his mission to dissolve our fears about Muslims. So that leads me to believe that he had another agenda.

    We also need to take a serious look at the Sioux Falls Islamic Center, Teensa Islam, and others in order to determine if they are really fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood. If they are, then we need to put extra focus on what they are up to. Islamic Jihad is worldwide, including America and South Dakota. This guy’s actions only proved it, especially when he converted his bacon bullets into Allah bullets with a blessing after he went home the night of the conference. Sadly the South Dakota media is not addressing that important element of this saga.

      Hey dude, show us your honesty— If the topic of that circus were reversed and it was appealing to muslems with a christian speaker inciting rage; hate and fear toward christians, AND the christian religion what would you be saying?

      If the guy in the car doing exactly as the muslem guy was doing were a christian upset about the christian bashing going on inside the “muslem event”, what would you be saying?

    It’s pretty pathetic when the Argus Liar out-liberals a CBS affiliate in Los Angeles. The Argus called it an anti-muslim event, and the CBS affiliate called it a Christian conference. So is the Argus that stupid? Yes, yes it is.

    1. Jaa Dee

      Hey genius, it could be both—just like a klan rally could be called “christian conference”— How much hate and religious ignorance was promoted at that “christian conference” ? How many guns were there?…

      The guy will be watched, but it is the nra puppets that made every thing he did as an American legal and tried to make it even easier…. Laws apply to all. Y’all wanted it y’all got it with the usual ignorance of the ramifications…live with it.

        Responsible gun owners do not do stupid things like this guy did. I know of no gun owner who puts their arsenal in the car and attends an event that they do not agree with. Bet he is not an NRA member. Is it not clear to you that he did not break any gun laws? Pretty sure he broke the law when he started threatening people. The law should apply to all.

        1. Jaa Dee

          “Responsible” gun owners” kill people every day out of stupidity… “responsibley” gun owners openly carry guns into businesses which is as stupid as what this guy did—

          “. Is it not clear to you that he did not break any gun laws? “– WHAT???

          ” Bet he is not an NRA member.”— wtf does it matter..?

          “The law should apply to all.”– Exactly right and that is why you people are pissed…

        Thanks for calling me genius, although coming from you it doesn’t mean much.

        It is a liberal trait to mock, belittle, and malign Christianity, so my point was correct; the Argus Liar outdid a CBS mainstream media affiliate from one of the most leftwing cities on the planet.

        The speaker at the conference was there to promote Christianity as he believes it is the true faith; at least he isn’t waving guns around like the idiot wearing the hate-filled t-shirt who is giving South Dakota such good press with his antics.

        Thanks again for your oh-so-insightful post.

            “How about the laws in this state apply to everybody?”

    Regardless of what the guys religion was he was clearly worked up and trying to cause a stir. His video where he tells people to be **** terrified tells the entire story. That doesn’t mean he was going to hurt someone but I also don’t think he could walk in a room and yell FIRE! and get away with it so posting a video showing a bunch of guns and then telling people to be terrified each time he showed a new weapon should maybe fall under the same law as yelling FIRE!

    Or maybe I’m wrong. Either way the desire is to insight panic and fear for simple pleasure.

    Your arrogance and condesending attitude doesn’t help sway people or open people up to your perspective. Maybe you don’t care but why waste your time here if you don’t?

    This gentlemen has waited tables in Sioux Falls for about the last 20 yrs I believe. Regardless, he has damaged his reputation and I personally wouldn’t hire him based on his mental stability. His religion is relevant to the story because he made it an issue. He needs help.
