Open Carry Muslim Posts Video with Weapons, F-Bombs at Christian Event ~ VIDEO

By Dean Weingarten

Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- An American Muslim who open and concealed carries weapons got into trouble for a facebook live video.

He filmed and posted the video outside of a Christian event that some called “anti-Muslim”. The event occurred on April 9th, 2017.

Ehad Abdulmutta Jaber bought tickets for the event and was wearing the T-shirt pictured above. The Shirt says:

  • I am an American
  • I am a Muslim
  • I open carry
  • I concealed carry
  • I am only dangerous
  • If you are stupid.

Ehad entered the event wearing the shirt and openly carrying a holstered pistol. He was concealed carrying another pistol in an ankle holster.  One account said he was filming the event, but he was only there for a few minutes.

Ehad was approached by a security guard and asked to leave, as firearms were prohibited at the venue. By all accounts, Ehad was asked to leave politely, and he politely left. It was after he left the venue and was inside his van in the parking lot, that he made a serious error.

He posted a live facebook video of himself, speaking of the event.  Here are links to the video.  I found the dailymail link easier to view, it is not a reverse image.

Ehad has First and Second Amendment rights. He says that he is an American citizen who has lived in Sioux Falls for 25 years. The T-Shirt is clearly a political statement.

The video may have been a bridge too far.

In the video, Ehad says that he was at the event. He is upset, and uses considerable profanity.

He says “And now if you really want to be scared, be scared,” he then briefly displays four semi-auto pistols, an AR-15 type rifle, and an AK type firearm that might be either a pistol or a rifle.  He shows that he has ammunition. He says “be terrified”. Up to this point, the video may be taken as sarcasm.

A Police officer said that Jaber was not arrested at the rally. The officer is quoted as saying that there was no direct threat.

From kdlt.com:

“He had a lot of guns with him, but he wasn’t breaking any laws. 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,” says Officer Sam Clemens of the Sioux Falls Police Department.

Police say Jaber does have open carry and concealed carry permits. They also spoke with him, so did the FBI. Police say the information was sent to the Lincoln County State’s Attorney’s Office and no charges will be made.

“You have to have some type of specific threat or manner, just having a gun just because it alarms people doesn’t constitute a threat. That doesn’t mean you are going to harm people,” says Clemens.

But Jaber’s last statement on the video may make a significant difference. His last sentence was “F*ck all ya all.

I have written, read, and participated in open carry and Second Amendment events over considerable parts of the country.  I have some sympathy for Ehad Jaber. Posting a video in the parking lot of an event that you are protesting, showing a number of legal weapons, while telling people to be scared, to be terrified, is extremely unusual and provocative.

Then to say “F*ck all ya all.” is over the line. I have never seen anyone at any of the events I attended or wrote about, or read about, tell people to be scared and terrified, as they handled weapons, or to make the F-bomb threat. Those are dozens of events over the years.

I could follow the sarcasm up to the last F-bomb. Then it became ambiguous.

After a little study, the Lincoln County AG made the decision to arrest Jaber and charge him with one count of a terrorist threat. From argusleader.com:

A man who authorities say brought weapons to an anti-Islam event earlier this month has been arrested on charges that he made a terrorist threat, according to a release from the South Dakota Attorney General.

Ehab Abdulmutta Jaber, 45, was arrested Friday and charged with one count of terrorist threat, despite an earlier indication from Sioux Falls police that the man would face no charges.

When Jaber was arrested, a search was made of his residence. Law enforcement reports that they found methamphetamine.

A SWAT team was dispatched along with local police, Forster said, but once they arrived, Jaber was taken into custody in a “standard operation.”

During a search of Jaber’s residence, the release said, law enforcement seized firearms as well as methamphetamine.

The methamphetamine find seems fortuitous for law enforcement; but it might explain the rant and poor choice of words in the facebook video.

To look at this objectively, consider if the religions were reversed. Suppose a Christian had worn the shirt with “Christian” instead of “Muslim” to a Muslim event. Suppose a Christian had made the facebook video. My experience is that the Christian would quickly have been arrested.

That is why you do not see such activity at other open carry events. There are many open carry events that you can see on the Internet. The participants are polite to the police, as was Ehab. They do not go to a van in the parking lot of an event they are protesting, and then post a video that can easily be taken as threatening.

I wish Ehad well, but fear he has made a mistake that will haunt him for the rest of his life.  When you are politically active for both the First and Second Amendments, there is no room for foolish bravado.

Lying and cheating in the Arab World is not really a moral matter. It’s called Taqiyya. “The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims” [Warner MacKenzie, Understanding Taqiyya – Islamic Lying for the Sake of Allah-April 2007] The article by Mr MacKenzie can be read at the address… Read more »

JP,

Taqiyya simply means that moslem lies and deceit are justified under the Qu’ran if doing so furthers the tenets of Islam.

Gil

So what? It’s a basic principle that war is based on deception. Do you feel you have to tell the truth to the enemy?

DAN III

Gil,

You obama/soros/bloomberg trolls are truly fools.

If we are at “war” as you implied with your beloved moslems, then why are we allowing millions of the enemy into this country ?

Gil

You say the Koran permits believers to lie to their enemies. But everyone believes they have no duty to be honest with their enemies. Are you some cherry tree-chopping Christian who couldn’t EVER tell a lie even under pain of torture and death? Even though the Commandment in question says to not lie to fellow believer only?

DAN III

Gil,

Answer my original question of you before you ask ME a question.

Heed the Call-up

Gil, Christians and most other people, with the exception of those of your ilk and Muslims are honest with others without having to be tortured or otherwise forced. We tend to treat others as we would like to be treated; it’s one aspect of civility, a concept clearly foreign to you.

Gil

No I don’t remember war being declared against Muslims. Lying to you enemies is redundant as saying “murder is wrong” since murder is defined as wrongful killing. No one lies to those they like and respect. Hence saying people lie to those they don’t like and don’t respect is stating the obvious.

DAN III

Gil,

I am honest with my enemies as I consider the likes of you to be both my enemy and the enemy of Freedom and Liberty. Given the appropropriate events and circumstances I would gladly provide you the opportunity to wear a hemp necklace as your feet dangle from the Tree of Liberty.

BTW….is tomorrow Soros/Bloomberg payday for you ?

Wild Bill

III, I know of a large woods where no one goes.

Wild Bill

It is a basic technique of war. So for it to apply, you have to admit that we are at war, or it is irrelevant. Are we at war with the moslems that we are letting into our country?

Gil

Are you hoping for a war with Muslims? Dan III says Muslims can lie to their perceived enemies? So what? Do you care if God is going to punish a Muslim for lying to a non-enemy?

Wild Bill

@Gil,
It is a basic technique of war. So for it to apply, you have to admit that we are at war, or it is irrelevant. Are we at war with the moslems that we are letting into our country?

JP,

Do not dismiss the treasonous mentalities of dhimmis like the moslem endorser here, Gil. Read his remarks and know the left is actively working to compromise the heritage and Freedoms of this once, Christian nation.

Gil

If the Founders wanted a Christian nation then they would not have installed freedom of religion into the Constitution yet they did.

Ben

I think Ehab made some poor decisions that day, from what I read here he was very provocative in his choice to attend an anti Islamic event boldly stating he was Muslim. Then making the video that was probably the exact reason there exists Islamic Phobia in the U.S., namely intentionally trying to induce fear. We can all read the history of Islam, and see its impact on events today. You would think that if not ALL Muslims were dangerous there would be more of them standing with Love in their Hearts condemning the atrocities of their Brothers throughout the… Read more »

Heed the Call-up

Ben, a phobia is an irrational fear, we don’t *fear* Muslims, just as we don’t fear bears, but having a healthy awareness of who or what is potentially dangerous is always wise. We know there is a certain percentage of them that are dangerous, we just don’t know from looking at them, just like bears, which ones they are. We know that their Qur’an tells them that lying to and deceiving nonbelievers is acceptable and encouraged. It therefore is reasonable to be wary. I bet the coworkers at the Christmas party didn’t expect to die at their hands, either. I… Read more »

@Heed and Old, Even the term radical Moslem is a deception. Even a liberal Moslem is more radical than a moderate person from the U.S. Ehab was clever that day, he wore his insults on his T-shirt. If any thing happened he could maintain that it was not his words, it was just a saying on a T-shirt.

JP

There are many “Red Flags” here. Now you can call me as many names you like, it makes no difference to me, but you need to ask yourself what his intentions really were. It doesn’t seem to me that he would load up all of those weapons and ammunition, put on an “In your face ” T shirt proclaiming his Muslim faith and drive to a Christian event just to sit in his vehicle and make a video telling everyone to be afaid while pulling out and displaying quite a variety of semi auto rifles and handguns in addition to… Read more »

Rattlerjake

You hit the nail on the head!

BLG

We truly need to simplify situations like this and de-escalate all the tension. To me, this person is just plain not happy here. We should just send him to his choice of any Muslim country he chooses to live. Perhaps there he will adjust or if not so he can wear descriptive angry T-shirts and come to their “gatherings” with multiple weapons to any one of the multitudes of Muslim Jihad groups there.

Jimbo66

I didn’t feel threatened by his video. I could tell he was upset about being kicked out and I wouldn’t have gone that far but. I can see where he’s coming from. Had he been a problem he would have been a problem long ago because I doubt he bought all those tools on his way there. Obviously they’re in an open carry state so why the no weapons at the rally? I hope they had a big enough sign because it doesn’t look like he saw it. Me, I don’t go to restricted events anyway. It’s like having a… Read more »

WBArmy

Why would he be upset about being kicked out? Signs were posted which said that firearms were prohibited. I do not even GO into places where firearms are prohibited unless I have to. So to begin with, he did break the law if he walked in with a weapon easily visible. Why was he not arrested then? And if he broke that law, then the police could easily have gotten a warrant and searched his house while arresting him. He was stupid for breaking the law, posting a video showing that he broke the law, and making a mild threat… Read more »

Wild Bill

@WBArmy, maybe he was trying to get beat up so that he would have a huge law suit.

JoeUSooner

WBArmy, I’m not sure about the laws in South Dakota, but here in Oklahoma his initial action (entering a posted “no guns” area) would not have by itself been illegal. In this state – aside from a few locations, like prisons or courthouses, that are actually specified in statutory legislation – the signs carry no legal weight (they are simply an indication of property owner’s wishes). If a licensee’s concealed carry is somehow discovered in a posted area, the property owner can only ask the licensee to leave… and when asked to do so, the licensee must indeed immediately leave,… Read more »

DAN III

Joe,

In my neck of the “Woods” a no guns” sign on private property means only one thing. That is, if asked to leave by the private property owner/representative/employee and you refuse, one can be charged with trespass. Other than that, the No Guns/Knives sign only serve to validate the owner’s anti-Freedom, statist mentality.

Rattlerjake

You’re an idiot! The Constitution was written to limit government, NOT individuals – has nothing to do with being anti-Freedom or statist. On private property the land owner IS the sovereign ruler and doesn’t have to allow freedom of anything! As a property owner I do not have to allow you to speak about your religion, or carry a gun, or not discriminate based on race, gender, etc. If I tell you to leave for ANY reason (I don’t even have to have a reason), it is my property and you are trespassing if you refuse to leave! BUT, the… Read more »

Did the search warrant state the badged ones were looking for drugs, legal or illegal ? If not, the drug find is inadmissable evidence. In fact, the entire search may be compromised.

Don’t get me wrong. The moslem is certainly a threat. But, it is this kind of “police work” that will be and has been foisted upon Americans by the those enforcing the tyranny of government.

Remember Jose Guerena.

Webfoot Logger

There are ways to deal with unexpected findings during a search; most states allow the police to get a second warrant as long as the first is valid.

DAN III

Webfoot, So, as the scum we call “government” has compromised 2A and “shall not be infringed”, you are stating that your beloved “government” types can readily, easily and wantonly circumvent the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution ? Freedom and Liberty….it is pretty much gone in Amerika. Courtesy of mentalities such as yours. Specifically, that the scum of government can do whatever they want. They only have to be creative, eh ? BTW….the badged thugs finding of the illicit drug is not probable cause to issue another warrant. The entire first search is invalid and a judge doing his job… Read more »

Heed the Call-up

Dan, so you would rather have a drug-crazed lunatic roaming around armed with an assortment of loaded firearms? Whether or not the search and seizure of his illegal drugs is ruled legitimate or not, I am still glad they took the drugs and him off the street. I hope he will at minimum lose his CC permit. We don’t need people like that to be armed.

DAN III

Heed,

He was a vindictive moslem. Not a “drug crazed lunatic”. Again, you give a pass to the moslem scoundrel who will lop your left-leaning head off when you don’t comply with Sharia.

The very same poLICE actions you condone will be and have been used against my fellow Amerikans courtesy of the badged thugs. Your selective protections guaranteed by the 4th Amendment are indicative of your leftist mentality.

Heed the Call-up

Dan, I did not give him a pass. You are the one giving him “a pass” by wanting the search to be invalidated. I condone legal searches, this seemingly is such. It’s ironic that you keep calling me a Leftist or left-leaning. You clearly are confused. Have you been reading my posts? So, in your mind, he can’t be a drug abuser because he’s Muslim? Regardless of the reason he did what he did, I still would not want someone like him to be roaming the streets armed. He is either a potential threat due to his beliefs or due… Read more »

The Dude

The meth. may have fallen out of one of their pockets. Nothing better to disarm a person than a felony drug conviction.

Heed the Call-up

The Dude, so he was acting psychotic without being on drugs? Then he needs all his firearms taken from him. Although it is unlikely he will get a felony conviction from that. Most of the time, especially first offenses are plead down to misdemeanors, and then he will still be allowed to keep his firearms. I personally would rather have someone that threatens violence not be allowed to own weapons, especially firearms.

Jorge,

Write in English. This isn’t WalMart.

Paul G.

Repent of your ungodliness DAN lll. Your condescension toward Jorge is sickening and not uncommon on this site which is also sickening. You are the one who is a threat!! What you write in English is the problem!!

Heed the Call-up

Dan’s attitude is uncommon here, and so is Spanish. Jorge clearly reads English, if he expects to be understood on an English language website, it is reasonable to expect him to write in English.

As far as what he wrote, again, not much substance, but written in Spanish.

He wrote, which I assume was directed at Gil, that he is a type that needs to be monitored 24 hours a day.

DAN III

Heed,

An what is “uncommon” about my “attitude” ? Enlighten me.

Wild Bill

I just thought that he meant uncommonly concise and humorous. It is easy to be verbose and preachy.

Heed the Call-up

Dan, your intolerance of someone posting in Spanish on this site is what I was referring to, and your flippant comment about people in Wal-mart was uncalled for.

DAN III

Heed,

It is your left-leaning mentality that makes me pause and wonder if I have enough rope to hang the treasonous asses of those like you when the SHTF.

It is often spoken of “the enemy among us”. Certainly, your expressed dhimmitude is evidence that there are a multitude of Amerikan traitors who deserve their noose hoisted from the Tree of Liberty.

Heed the Call-up

Dan, you are amusing, stating I have left-leaning tendencies. I can’t recall ever being accused of that. I guess what you perceive as such is my being tolerant of others. Even though I am not a Christian and not religious, that is a quality that Christians believe in.

As I stated in a previous post, you don’t even know where in the world Jorge is. He might not be an American and he might not be in USA. You should learn to relax a bit and enjoy life. Your pugnaciousness doesn’t serve you well here.

DAN III

Hey Paul,

Perhaps you should understand that there are still some American men left who despise the attack on our heritage and our way of life, soon to be former. As globalists and emasculated males such as yourself, embrace the attack on American culture and history, our country is spiraling down the drain, faster and faster with each passing day.

Heed the Call-up

Dan, I agree with you on that, but posting a comment on this site in Spanish is *not* an “attack on our heritage and our way of life”. You don’t even know what country the guy is living in.

DAN III

Paul G,

Please spare me your righteousness. I wasn’t being condescending to your pal Jorge. I was attacking his blatant effort to ridicule here, at an American blog.

As far as my ungodliness goes, so what ? That is your biased opinion and in the scheme of my life, means nothing.

So explain to me, rather than spouting meaningless rhetoric:

1. How am I a threat ?
2. To whom am I a threat ?
3. Explain now what I wrote in plain, ol’ American English is “the problem” ?

I’ll wait.

Paul G.

Dan lll,
You are the “fool” identified the the book of Proverbs. Because of that, you are unworthy of being answered, for to do so will only increase your condemnation. Therefore, for me to no longer be an outlet of your ungodliness is actually an act of mercy on my part. Repent and believe the gospel, Jn 3:36

Heed the Call-up

Dan, Jorge was not ridiculing you, but you were attempting to be denigrating to him. That is low-class and uncalled for. Jorge was commenting on, I assume Gil, stating he needs someone to watch over him 24 hours a day, which he is probably correct about.

B. Terclinger,
Not a chance, according to your self-serving definition!
Are you also going you abuse this site by showcasing that you are an enemy of Jesus the Christ?!
No one should be talked down to because they communicate on this site in other languages. This place should be a haven for respectful “gun talk” for folks from all over the world. I would hope that all people/language groups could benefit from the information found in the articles and not fear being abused because they choose to communicate with others in a different language. Something most Americans are incapable of!

A rally can override the law and Constitution?

Heed the Call-up

The author stated the man was not arrested at the rally. He made no reference to the law and the Constitution pertaining to anything concerning the rally. He only stated that “Ehad has First and Second Amendment rights.” He has no right to threaten anyone, and he was asked to leave the rally. If he didn’t leave, he would be charged with trespassing. He left, posted a threatening video, then was arrested later on. Illegal drugs were found in his house. He should now have his CC permit revoked. Threatening violence is not a lawful act, and he gives anti-gunners… Read more »

I don’t know about AZ, but in NC the law states that if you must purchase a ticket to attend an event, you CAN NOT carry concealed. This also applies to attending a church service or function. When he held a weapon and said, “Be afraid.”, he was showing what to be afraid of and thereby making a threat.

TS

F7cking idiot. The police did absolutely the right thing by charging him with a terrorist threat. He was asking for trouble and he got it.

Heed the Call-up

Agreed.

SuperG

I really don’t know what to make of the video. It is obvious he was angry though. I can’t infer what he said was a threat, as he could have been referring to the hypocrisy of our country and the Islamophobia that so many citizens exhibit. I can say that many a person has ruined their lives by posting to Facebook or being a Twitter twit. You can probably add one more now too.

Heed the Call-up

It isn’t “Islamophobia”, that implies an irrational fear, which it is not; just read the news, such as this story for example. Remember the two Muslims that went to an event in Texas with weapons and were shot dead before they could start their massacre? Remember San Bernardino where two Muslims brought firearms to a Christmas party and did cause a massacre? Situational awareness tells us to be aware of potential threats and trust one’s gut instinct. Yes, most Muslims do not do that, but just like our military is less than 1% of the US population, it doesn’t take… Read more »

True, how many is 1% of 1.6 billion? 16 million. That number alone should scare the tar out of anybody with sense.

Fact is that muslimes hate Christians and have NO BUSINESS attending a Christian event! That in and of itself is reason to suspect the worst!

But he is an American. Does that not count for something? Until he states what precisely he was ranting about, we do not know. That was all that I was saying. But we do have fear of Islam in this country, as well as a hatred of muslims. But we’ve always done that to the arriving immigrants. First the Irish, then the Italians, then the Germans, then Puerto Ricans, etc. The beauty of our culture is that we assimilate their children into it. You can be whatever flag you want, but your kids and their kids will grow up American.

Heed the Call-up

Evidenced by the Muslim children born and/or raised the US committing terrorist attacks and/or joining ISIS, etc., they are not assimilating, which is being true to Islam.

It isn’t hatred and fear when they really are attacking us and others in every country they inhabit. Again, all as according to Islam and as written in the Qur’an.

B. Terclinger

Those other immigrants didn’t come here “worshipping” a “religion’ whose entire premise is predicated on the destruction of America and everyone and every nation associated with the Judeo-Christian Capitalist West.

What do you think “Allah akbar!” means? “Our God Is the Greatest!”
IOW, GREATER THAN YOU AND YOURS.

Maybe our immigration law should have a clause in it that says: For every immigrant that is accepted, two must be sent packing! Great way to get rid of all those useless government dependent douches!
