Introducing New MM Specialist: Mohamed Elibiary (Founder of Freedom & Justice Foundation)

Published

We are excited to announce that Br. Mohamed Elibiary is joining MM as a specialist writer.

He will blog on politics, especially as it relates to US-Muslim World relations and the GWOT (Global War on Thinking). Br. Mohamed walks the talk and has established a first-class non-profit organization in Texas, Freedom & Justice Foundation (F&J), and goodwill around it that is unmatched mashallah. F&J works to enhance Centrist Public Policy development and implementation in Texas through civic and interfaith engagement. Many people may know F&J from the annual Texas Muslims Legislative Days that F&J organizes (we blogged about this year’s successful event here) and the Muslim scholarships (blogged here).

His short bio is below. Knowing Br. Mohamed’s various time-commitments, we are humbled that he is willing to take the time to share his ideas on our common platform. Please take a moment to welcome Br. Mohamed to the blogosphere!

Mohamed “Abu-Hamaid” Elibiary grew up in Dallas, Texas. He’s been politically active for more than half his life, getting his start in the Conservative Movement at the age of 16. In 2002 after some research Mohamed co-founded the Freedom and Justice Foundation (F&J). Since that time, he’s published numerous Op-Eds, given media interviews and speeches as well as advised policy makers on US-Muslim World Relations, Political Islam/Islamic Revivalist Movements and US Counter-Terrorism Policy. Even in serious gatherings like this breakfast at the Whitehouse, Mohamed finds amusement by taking pictures like this one he calls “Holy Bush” where the spotlights created a natural halo around the President’s head.

    I’m humbled to join other distinguished and accomplished Muslims and greatly appreciate everyone working behind the scene I haven’t met yet helping establish this platform for all of us to write and expand the horizon of our readers and ourselves. As Tiny Tim said, “God Bless everyone”. :-)

    Salaam,
    ME (Mohamed Elibiary)

    I think it’s about time MuslimMatters.org started to branch off into sub-divisions

    politics.muslimmatters.org

    islam.muslimmatters.org

    social.muslimmatters.org

    etc.

    :-D
