There have been questions about Mohamed Elibiary’s true allegiances for years. 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 I questioned him 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 didn’t 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.”
Yet despite all this, Elibiary still got his appointment to the DHS Advisory Council, and has now been promoted. Mohamed Elibiary has risen as far as he has without ever being properly vetted because government and law enforcement officials, and the media, are so avid to find a moderate Muslim who will stand against Islamic jihad terrorism that they will accept virtually anyone’s claim to be just that, no questions asked."Reporter has 'Jewish demeanor' on Fox News," by Aaron Klein for World Net Daily, October 20:
The unusual comment came in an email exchange in which Klein had asked Elibiary to comment on a recent tweet in which he warned the tea party against attempting to change the U.S. political landscape through “Christianist Xenophobia.”
Elibiary further charged some “white identity/privilege types” have a problem with a “black president” and “brown Mexicans.”
“If #TeaParty wants US revived then we must swing Blue seats Red & that is only achievable thru Libertarianism, not Christianist Xenophobia,” Elibiary tweeted.
Asked by WND to clarify his remarks, Elibiary replied, “Christianist” refers to “Christians who mix theology and nationalism. Christianists view today’s politics through a theologically influenced (Calvinist) view of America’s founding.”
Elibiary identified WND as falling into his definition of “Christianist.”
“WND certainly would often times fall in this camp as well as perhaps a subset of Christianists that political scientists refer to as ‘Christian Zionists’ because of its foreign policy worldview through a dispensationalist end-time theology.”
Klein, who has written for WND since 2004, replied that he is Jewish and not Christian.
Elibiary wrote back saying he assumed Klein was Jewish “with the last name of Klein and your demeanor in (sic) video I saw of you on Fox. But I also know WND (sic) ubber [sic] Christian.”
Klein inquired, “What about my demeanor on Fox would say I am Jewish?”
Elibiary responded that “most Jews are less alarmist, more reserved. Most Christianists go overboard trying to emotionally sway their audience.”
