In a flyer created for a “Positive Parenting Skills” conference, Islamic scholar Dr. M. Rateb Al-Nabulsi was listed as a “special guest speaker” at the event, which was held by the Security Advancement Center (SAC), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and Aisha Cultural Center in Orlando. Al Nabulsi, the Muslim extremist guest speaker has publicly called for the killing of gays and Jews and advocates for Islamic suicide bombings on his website.
Conservative journalist Laura Loomer drove to Orlando to report on the event, which was described on the flyer as being open to the public. Besides being a public event, the event was hosted at a public tax payer funded Florida Middle School, which gives any member of the public and the press the right to come on the property.
When Loomer approached the table to enter the event, event organizers and an official from CAIR refused to admit Loomer and her cameraman into the event and she was threatened with arrest by officers from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
