Anti-Islam Speech-Facebook Threat
Sioux Falls man accused of threats faces federal gun charge
The Associated Press - May 18, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A South Dakota man accused of livestreaming himself brandishing weapons and making threats outside an anti-Islam event last month is now facing a federal gun charge.

Authorities say 45-year-old Ehab Jaber of Sioux Falls possessed five firearms in April while being a drug user. He was indicted last week for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. Federal court records don't list an attorney for Jaber.

Jaber also faces state charges of making terroristic threats and possessing meth after allegedly making a Facebook video after he was kicked out of an April 9 event called "Sabotaging America: Islam's March Toward Supremacy."

Authorities say he was then arrested again in April after testing positive for meth, a violation of his bond, and charged with felony ingestion of a controlled substance.
