Mohamed Elibiary, diagnosis a member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council, is under fire for tweeting that America is “an Islamic country,” reported the Washington Free Beacon.
After a Twitter user asked Elibiary last Thursday to “show me just ONE example of an Islamic country where non-Muslims are treated with equality,” he responded with the tweet: “America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!”
The back-and-forth between Elibiary and the Twitter user, who identified himself as Tim Lee, started when Elibiary said the conservative perception of Islam needed to “evolve.”
According to the Free Beacon, Elibiary has served on the department’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group, as well as its Faith-based Security and Communications Advisory Committee. He is also a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Neither the Department of Homeland Security nor Elibiary responded to the Free Beacon’s request for comments.
