Muslim Brotherhood supporter gets Homeland Security promotion

Mohamed Elibiary Twitter

A controversial Homeland Security advisor who was recently promoted to senior fellow is a self-declared Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and Mohamed Morsi supporter.

Mohamed Elibiary, who was appointed to the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council by then-Secretary Janet Napolitano in 2010, tweeted Thursday that his appointment was renewed and his position elevated:


Elibiary’s tenure on the advisory council created controversy almost from the start. About a year after his appointment, PJ Media reported that he used his new federal security clearance to download information on the Texas Department of Public Safety and sell it to left-leaning media outlets as proof of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s “Islamophobia.”

The media didn’t bite; the proof existed only in Elibiary’s mind.

U.S. Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, joined three other congressmen to raise alarms about Elibiary and others in the Obama administration with apparent ties to, or at least sympathies with, the Muslim Brotherhood. The response was that the concerns smack of McCarthyism, according to a PJ Media report.

MB saluteSo is there any truth to the claims?

Perhaps the most distinctive feature of Elibiary’s Twitter profile photo is the black four-finger salute on yellow background located on the lower right. The Muslim Brotherhood adopted the logo to symbolize the Aug. 14 “martyrdom” of pro-Morsi demonstrators in Cairo, according to Front Page Mag.

If his sympathies were still in doubt, on Sept. 6, Elibiary re-tweeted a photo “with love” depicting a Cairo pro-Muslim Brotherhood rally as it made its way on a bridge crossing the Nile.


All those holding public office require the trust of the people they serve. That’s why they must avoid even the appearance of impropriety. But Elibiary is not being held to that standard, and the consequences are being felt around the world.

The people of Egypt regard the Obama administration as pro-Morsi and pro-Muslim Brotherhood, although the president has been silent on the subject, even to the point of not calling the recent change in government a coup.

It’s long past time to clean house, beginning with Elibiary, and risk the cries of McCarthyism and “Islamophobia” that will surely follow. The government’s relations with Middle East countries can no longer afford this “advisor.”

    All I hear is bitching.. No one is doing anything.. Just working their middle class jobs, paying their taxes so that we can take care of welfare babies, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Syrian FSA and Al Nusra. You want change? Make it happen!!!! Stop TALKING.
