Mohamed Elibiary co-founded the Freedom and Justice Foundation (F&J) in November 2002 to promote a Centrist Public Policy environment in Texas by coordinating the state level government and interfaith community relations for the organized Texas Muslim community. In 2005, Mohamed spearheaded the launching of the Texas Islamic Council (T.I.C.) as an F&J program for Muslim congregations, which has quickly grown to become the state's largest Muslim network encompasing 100,000 Texans. As Coordinator of the T.I.C., Mohamed developed working relationships with similar faith-based entities around Texas including the Texas Conference of Churches, Texas Catholic Conference and the Baptist General Convention of Texas. In 2006, the 16 largest Muslim congregations and civic organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area followed this example by creating a collective representative body called the North Texas Islamic Council (NTIC) and Mohamed was elected to its 7 member executive governing body. Since 2005, Mohamed, as a National Security Policy Analyst, has been advising intelligence and law enforcement agencies (ex. FBI, DHS, NCTC, ODNI, etc.) on various Counter-Terrorism (CT) issues (ex. Domestic Intelligence, Strategic Intelligence Analysis, Information Sharing and Radicalization).

Mohamed Elibiary, Advisor to the Homeland Security Enterprise advises the Muslim community about Wired Magazine's, Spenser Ackerman’ s expose on FBI Counter-Terrorism training at Quantico. "As a liaison between the FBI and the Muslim community, I can attest that there is nothing new in Spenser’s reporting and could add volumes more to it of FBI wrongdoings; none the less, it has been disquieting and demoralizing for someone in my position to watch the ripple effects upon our community’s psyche."

Elibiary: It’s a Mistake to Assassinate Anwar al-Awlaki (with Foreword by Yasir Qadhi)

The news of Al-Awlaki's pending assassination circled the globe and included long discussions in the media about whether or not such a murder is "constitutional," if it even constitutes "murder" and on Al-Jazeera it was dissected as a possible window into the Obama administration's decision making process.

Muslims for McCain, Muslims for Obama: Can Muslims and the Media Handle it?

Last week I was up in DC for some government-relations work, and was a bit shocked to receive a request from FOX News for an interview on the Presidential Race. Generally speaking, whenever the issue came up in my conversations with national Muslim leaders over the past few months, I have been relaying my personal preference for McCain over Obama, ...

What would you say to America’s leading Islamophobes if given the opportunity?

This past weekend I flew back early into Dallas from a 160+ years in-the-making Baptist Convention, intended to heal Race Relations amongst White and Black Baptists, just so that I could attend a Conference of what we Muslims call America's leading Islamophobes. With folks like Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, Caroline Glick ... Read More »

BUBBA responds to possible “Honor Killing” in Dallas

What a trip the past two weeks have been? The last week of December as well as the first week of January is usually dead without much going on in the socio-political world I work in. In fact I looked forward to two weeks of unwinding time from the stresses of convention-filled December, reading and reviewing my New Year's resolutions ... Read More »
