Between 100 to 1000 protesters are expected to show up on Saturday at an Islamic fundraiser in Texas, but due to threats made on social media, organizers are worried about violence. Threats specifically mention bullets and dynamite.
Bullets for the Lawd!
According to ABC News, the protesters are objecting to an event held by the Chicago-based Islamic organization called Sound Vision.
The event called Stand with the Prophet Against Terror and Hate, will have approximately 500 people in attendance.
The event is being held in a building rented from the Garland school district.
Social media is being monitored by police.
Executive director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Texas, Alia Salem, said they have asked for more police protection after threats were made on social media sites.
“We reported those to law enforcement,” Alia Salem said. “They have taken every possible measure to ensure this is going to be a safe event.”
Salem explained that the event aims “to educate others about Islam and Muslims for the purposes of combating Islamaphobia, terrorism and hate.”
Police confirmed they are aware of hostile language but said there were no viable threats made.
When a dozen protesters arrived in Richardson, as Muslims came for prayers at the Islamic Association of North Texas, it gave organizers and the police a glimpse as to what to expect.
About 10 protesters carried signs quoting Christian scripture, according to WFAA.
The protesters screamed through a bullhorn as worshipers entered the mosque.
“Time to repent,” Ruben Israel, a street preacher, yelled. “Islam is filled with murder! This is your wake up call.”
He shouted through a loud speaker, “How many of you Muslims are terrorists?”
When WFAA asked Israel if he saw a distinction between families going in, and terrorists who committed the murderous attacks in Paris, he said, “I see common ground.”

Because that’s exactly what Jesus would not do. That would be like us seeing no distinction between Domestic terrorists and his group of screaming protesters.
