Obama Administration Appoints Pro-Khomeini Islamist to Homeland Security Advisory CouncilTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Mohamed Elibiary, one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas entitled "A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary," Ayatollah Khomeini, has been sworn-in by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to the Homeland Security Advisory Council. When Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News called him on his speaking at the pro-Khomeini conference, he threatened Dreher, telling him: "Expect someone to put a banana in your exhaust pipe."
In what is indeed a "Fox Guarding Henhouse Alert" - "Secretary Napolitano Swears in Homeland Security Advisory Council Members," from the Department of Homeland Security, October 15 (via Atlas Shrugs):
Washington, D.C. - Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in three new members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) during her latest tri-annual meeting with HSAC, which took place at DHS headquarters this week. The HSAC is comprised of experts from state, local and tribal governments, emergency and first responder communities, academia and the private sector who provide recommendations and advice to the Secretary of Homeland Security on a variety of homeland security issues.Pamela Geller says she's met Mohamed Elibiary and that he is a "slick fellow."
The new members include: former New York City Police Commissioner and Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton, who will join as vice-chair to former CIA and FBI Director Judge William Webster; Massachusetts General Hospital Director of Police, Security and Outside Services Bonnie Michelman; and Freedom and Justice Foundation President and Chief Executive Officer Mohamed Elibiary.
[...] Mohamed Elibiary is the President and CEO of the Freedom and Justice Foundation, and has advised numerous federal, state and local law enforcement organizations including the Texas Department of Safety and National Counterterrorism Center Global Engagement Group on matters relating to homeland security. Recently, Elibiary served on DHS's Homeland Security Advisory Council Countering Violent Extremism Working Group, and currently serves on the Texas Department of Public Safety Advisory Board. In December of 2009 he helped establish the Texas Fusion Center Policy Council to enhance information sharing, analytical capabilities and community relations at the state and local law enforcement levels.
You can read here his dancing and obfuscation about deception in Islam and other matters, in a long exchange we had here at Jihad Watch. Read it carefully, noting the questions I ask him and the answers he gives to them, and ask yourself whether he really ought to be on the Homeland Security Advisory Council.This seems like the right time to ask just what the hell the administration is thinking - or are they?
Elibiary once asked me to post his explanation of his appearance at the Khomeini tribute conference. You can read all about that here.
