Many Democrats laughed at the idea that conservatives believed President Barack Obama was filling his administration with radical Muslims. They seem to overlook Mohamed Elibiary, a former Obama official at the Department of Homeland Security, who just celebrated the deaths of Egyptian Christians at the hands of ISIS. He recently tweeted about his joy over the murders (shown below), stating “what goes around comes around.”
Mohamed Elibiary founded the North Texas Islamic Council and was appointed to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council. where he was named a Senior Fellow. He advised both DHS and the FBI on counter-terrorism issues. He is also a radical Muslim sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood.
In 2013, while he should have been working in our government to protect us from Islamic terrorists, Elibiary posted this tweet.
Elibiary left DHS the next year, but his Muslim sympathies have become even more radicalized. Even today, his Twitter account states “MB=OK, ISIS=bad.” MB stand for Muslim Brotherhood, and is hardly as “OK” as Elibiary claims.
A former Obama administration official at the Department of Homeland Security said Sunday that when it comes to the Islamic State slaughtering Egyptian Christians, “what goes around, comes around.”
In a tweet posted Sunday, Mohamed Elibiary, who formerly served as senior member of the DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council, stated, “Reading ISIS’s latest mag ‘otherizing’ Egypt’s Copts. Subhanallah how what goes around comes around. Coptic ldrs did same to MB Egyptians.”
Despite Elibiary’s assertion, there is no evidence Coptic Christians in Egypt have attacked or killed Muslim Brotherhood Egyptians.
The Daily Caller explains the significance of one particular word in the tweet.
“Subhanallah” is Arabic for “Glory to Allah,” and so in this tweet, Elibiary is expressing praise to Allah for the fact that ISIS is killing Egyptian Christians as apparent retribution for Coptic leaders doing the same to members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
In early May, ISIS published issue 9 of its magazine “Rumiyah,” which is the publication Elibiary is referencing in his tweet.
The first article in the new issue is titled “The Ruling on the Belligerent Christians,” and explicitly praises the recent ISIS terror attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt, also calling for more deadly attacks against Christians and their property. Elibiary referred to this call and other contents in the article as “otherizing” in his tweet.
The Obama administration let Elibiary go from his position in September 2014. Elibiary has a long history of controversial remarks, including statements that the return of the Muslim caliphate is “inevitable,” and also that America is “an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution.”
Regarding his Sunday tweet, Elibiary told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement: “It’s a shame Egypt & the Egyptian social fabric was destroyed to this degree by the entry of the military into politics & economics.”
