From this article, there was a previous pro-Islam event at the same site. The event site supports the freedom of both perspectives:

"In January, the Culwell Center had been the scene of dueling protests during a pro-Muslim Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect event. Some protesters then called for peace and understanding, while anti-Muslim demonstrators argued that extremists’ beliefs threatened the U.S."

Maybe older, historical IBM products worked well and were stable, but all the products I've had the displeasure of using within the past few years were unstable and full of bugs. Often, their own consultants didn't even know how to fix the bugs, until multiple severity 1 tickets were issued to light a fire under them to encourage them to fix it. IBM generates the same amount of cold, spine-tingling horror that Amdocs used to. Seems like someone in upper management has a buddy at IBM, with all the times we've been burned and yet keep using their crappy products and over-priced consultants.
