Homeland security promotes Mohamed Elibiary despite Muslim Brotherhood alleged ties
The Obama administration has promoted a Homeland Security adviser, who is a self-declared Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood supporter, to senior fellow within the Cabinet-level department of the federal government.
Mohamed Elibiary, who was appointed to the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council by former Secretary Janet Napolitano in 2010, tweeted Sept. 12 that he has been reappointed to the position and promoted.
Elibiary’s Twitter profile photo features a “Rabia sign,” a yellow square with a black, four-finger salute and “R4BIA” in the lower corner. According to Front Page Mag, the symbol was adopted by the Muslim Brotherhood to represent the Aug. 14 “martyrdom” of pro-Morsi protesters in Cairo.
“The R4BIA sign is not a benign peace symbol; it is a symbol of resistance, Islamism, martyrdom, and a visual call to arms comparable to the black flag of jihad,” Front Page Mag explained.
Elibiary spoke at a Texas conference in 2004 and honored Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini as a “great Islamic visionary.”
Elibiary fervently endorses the teachings of Egyptian writer Sayyid Qutb, who is widely considered the father of the modern Islamic terrorist revolution
