Ahmed Mohamed, the Texas teen detained for bringing a homemade suitcase clock experiment to school that resembled a bomb, appear together in a Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) promotional video with the terror-tied organization’s controversial co-founder Nihad Awad.
The boy’s Sudanese immigrant father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, a failed presidential candidate for that country, also appears in the 30 second video, “Come Meet Ahmed Mohamed – ‘The Clockmaker’.” It promotes Ahmed’s appearance at CAIR’s 21st Champions for Justice banquet held tonight at Arlington, Virginia’s Marriott Crystal Gateway.
Awad, a known Hamas supporter, also rejects Israel’s right to exist. Even in the face of the Islamic State’s rampaging terror and slaughter, Awad called the Jewish state the biggest threat to world peace and security. Breitbart News reported he once publicly declared his support of the “Hamas movement.” Hamas, the radical Islamic group, is a United States designated terrorist organization. CAIR was charged as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing case in U.S history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.
