I imagine every Muslim school student is dreaming up ways to scam the system in a similar fashion.
Unbelievable. This makes 1984 look like a children’s story.
The 14-year old all-American schoolboy clockmaker who didn’t make a clock at all and is the son of a belligerent Muslim activist and perennial Sudanese presidential candidate whose brother runs a trucking company amusingly called Twin Towers Transportation (Mark Steyn)
He invented nothing. He took apart a digital clock and stuffed into a briefcase, making something resembling a time-bomb.
He knew it looked like a bomb. Ahmed Mohamed told the Dallas Morning News, “I closed [the ‘clock’] with a cable, I didn’t want to lock it to make it seem like a threat … so it won’t look that much suspicious.”
Clockmed’s father was the “defense attorney” representing the Quran in a mock trial opposing Terry Jones. He’s been trying to hit the islamophobia jackpot for some time. His moment has arrived.
The clockmeister’s father, Islamophobia huckster Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, declared, “I know you know the story and the world knows the story,” his father said. “But we will repeat it and repeat it until justice is done.”
Justice? This kind of justice — gofundme page to the tune of 100K.
Also in 2011, ElHassan debated Robert Spencer on the question of “Does Islam Respect Human Rights?” Clearly, he was trying to score a victory against a famous “Islamophobe” and thus win a name for himself. ElHassan has been looking for publicity and chances to fight against “Islamophobia” for a considerable period. Now he has seized it, going so far as to claim his son was “tortured” by school and law enforcement officials.
He received thousands of dollars worth of Microsoft equipment in the now famous goodie bag.
Clockmed is heading to the UN to meet with foreign dignitaries.
“Texas teen arrested over homemade clock heads to United Nations,” By By Lisa Maria Garza, OANN, September 22, 2015
DALLAS (Reuters) – A Texas teenager who became a global sensation after he was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb will be meeting foreign dignitaries at the United Nations this week, a family friend said on Tuesday.
Ahmed Mohamed, 14, a Muslim student who dabbles in robotics and attended a Dallas area high school, touched off a social media firestorm with many seeing his the arrest as being tied to his religion.
He also won support from President Barack Obama who personally invited him to the White House for an astronomy night and Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, who said, “having the skill and ambition to build something cool should lead to applause, not arrest.”
Mohamed, a bespectacled ninth grader with a penchant for wearing NASA T-shirts, attended Google’s science fair on Monday at its Mountain View campus in California.
He will be at the United Nations in New York with his family on Wednesday, according to Alia Salem, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations.
The boy’s social schedule has been draining, his father told the Dallas Morning News, saying his son has not been eating or sleeping well.
The father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, also told the paper his son does not feel comfortable returning to MacArthur High School, where the incident happened, and will withdraw from the school district.
Ahmed Mohamed was accused of making a hoax bomb, handcuffed and questioned. He received a three-day suspension from the high school over the clock he put together to impress his new classmates and teachers.
No charges were filed and police said they would review the decisions officers made in his arrest.
Police did not call out the bomb squad and the school was not evacuated.
