Watch leaders refuse to let Fox News in at ‘open press’ Muslim conference

Nothing says “we aren’t hiding anything” like barring “certain types” of media from your event.

Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters attempted to gain access to the “Stand with the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas, Saturday, but was rebuffed — even though he filled out all the proper forms and purchased tickets.

“There’s a certain type of media allowed,” a man told him outside of the conference and “‘The O’Reilly Factor’ is specifically barred from coming inside.”

While he waited for hours, unable to gain access, he asked attendees questions from outside the conference center. Some of the answers were startling.

“Seems to be a lot of turmoil in that part of the world. Lot of beheadings, stonings of women. Why is that tolerated in the Muslim world?” he asked one man.

“Because that’s what we believe. It says in the Koran that women shouldn’t be able to go out in public, you know, wearing regular clothes,” he replied.

Watters then asked him point-blank if he wanted Sharia law in America, to which the man said “Yes, that would be nice.”

The man told Watters he was going to hell and that he should come to the mosque.

“They won’t even let me in the conference,” Watters said.
