Spencer: Great Moderate Muslim Hope Mohamed Elibiary Leaks Intel Documents

In Human Events today I discuss the dangers that the avid quest for moderate Muslims opens us up to:

Mohamed Elibiary is that hottest of commodities:  The moderate Muslim who will stand forthrightly against terrorism.  Youthful, engaging and well-spoken, Elibiary’s star has been on the rise for years.  In October 2010, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano named him to the Homeland Security Advisory Council.
 
But as so often happens with Muslims that the media or government rushes to anoint as the Great Moderate Hope (remember, the New York Times praised Anwar al-Awlaki as a moderate after 9/11), Elibiary is now under a cloud.  He is suspected of leaking highly sensitive intelligence documents to a media outlet—and Napolitano is stonewalling.
 
Investigative journalist Patrick Poole reported at PJ Media last week that “Elibiary may have been given access to a sensitive database of state and local intelligence reports, and then allegedly shopped some of those materials to a media outlet.”  According to Poole, Elibiary approached “a left-leaning media outlet” with reports marked For Official Use Only that he said demonstrated rampant “Islamophobia” in the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).  The media outlet declined to do a story, but what was Elibiary doing shopping them Official Use Only documents in the first place?
 
Poole checked with Steve McCraw, Director of the Texas DPS, who “confirmed that Elibiary has access to the Homeland Security State and Local Intelligence Community of Interest (HS SLIC) database, which contains hundreds of thousands of intelligence reports and products that are intended for intelligence sharing between law enforcement agencies.”  Said McCraw of Elibiary:  “We know that he has accessed DPS documents and downloaded them.”
 
Questioned last week about Elibiary’s activities by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R.-Tex), Napolitano professed ignorance and didn’t even seem to know who he was—which strained credulity, because she swore him in to the DHS Advisory Council.  The DHS website still carries a press release proudly listing his accomplishments, and the record is impressive indeed:

Mohamed Elibiary 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’ Homeland Security Advisory Council Countering Violent Extremism Working Group, and currently serves on the Texas Department of Public Safety Advisory Board.
 
Elibiary has been working along such lines for many years.  Yet there have been questions about his moderate bona fides for a number of years as well.  He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.”  The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.
 
When questioned about his appearance at such a conference, Elibiary claimed that he hadn’t known what kind of conference it was going to be, although he did not explain why he went ahead and appeared there anyway once he found out.  Among those who found this explanation wanting was journalist Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News, whose skepticism angered Elibiary.  The great moderate subsequently threatened Dreher, telling him:  “Expect someone to put a banana in your exhaust pipe.”

    All Muslims are required to support jihad or be killed as apostate, there are just different ways to support jihad. Some Muslims quietly support jihad financially or passively (i.e., not calling the police or testifying against other Muslims when they commit a jihad crime such as murder or plunder of non-Muslims). Mohammad’s doctrine of taysir ONLY lifts the requirement to enforce Sharia law (enforcement of Islamic principles) when there are not enough Muslims/Muslims in power to enforce it. That means that, when possible, Sharia law enforcement is required by Islam. That defines “moderate” “peaceful” Muslims as merely passive.

    When taysir is lifted, ALL Muslims are required to support Sharia enforcement or be killed as apostate. Those trapped in Islam against their will who refuse to support Sharia risk being killed as apostate from Islam themselves. It is a gamble to count on the majority of Muslims risking their lives and their families’ lives to rebel against Islam and not enforce Sharia. Sharia law claims worldwide jurisdiction, on Muslims and non-Muslims alike, because Mohammad declared enforcement of Islam to be Mohammad’s Allah’s “divine” law. And, Mohammad interprets the Qur’an by his actions/sayings in the Haddith and Sira, not the U.S. Government or Liberal elitists or Christian clergy.

    Homeland Security is just following its leader, President Obama, who has placed many global jihadists into office and positions of power and authority. Obama’s outreach to the Muslim world even opens up NASA’s missile technology to them, so why would law enforcement be protected by him?

    These facts are similar to the story about Hilary Clinton’s high-ranking aid, Huma Abedin, wife of disgraced ex-Congressman, Anthony Weiner. In that case, too, when information surfaced that Abedin was a devout Muslim and a spy who, through the doctrine of taysir, had managed to worm her way up the ladder in the service of Hilary Clinton, from the time when Clinton was First Lady, to the present, not a damn thing was done about it. There was never any news of an investigation and the MSM’s failure to pursue the story assured that it would soon be forgotten (which is exactly what happened). The obvious parallels between the mishandling of Abedin’s case, like the case at hand, is a total DISGRACE – the one commodity of which the Obama White House apparently has an endless supply.
