The head of a messianic Jewish ministry says Americans prefer their country over the Muslim prophet Mohammad.

"Americans don't want to see Mohammad defended. We want to see American defended," says Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries.

She made her remarks to OneNewsNow after the controversial "Stand with the Prophet" conference that was held in the Dallas-Ft. Worth suburb of Garland.

The speakers included key note speaker Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, The Washington Times reported. Thousands of protesters also stood outside the event, the newspaper also reported. 

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"We're a nation of immigrants," says Markell, "but most immigrants, except Muslims, assimilate into our culture. And then they defend America."

Americans are fed up with political correctness that allowed someone connected to terrorism to speak at that conference. 

"I think we're tired of the mentality that says that someone who was a part of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center should be a respected member of any activity in America," Markell tells OneNewsNow.

She says she was pleased that thousands showed up to protest the conference, including one individual who held up a sign that read, "Go home and take Obama with you."
