Controversial Homeland Security Adviser Defends Use of Muslim Brotherhood-Associated Icon on His Twitter Profile

An adviser to the Department of Homeland Security — who was recently promoted — is defending his use of the controversial “R4BIA” four-finger salute symbol associated with the Muslim Brotherhood as decor on his Twitter profile, a choice that elicited criticism on Sunday on the social media site and from one Israeli blog.

Mohamed Elibiary, one of 28 members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, insists the symbol is “bigger than” the Muslim Brotherhood and that to him it means “Freedom4All.” In his Twitter profile, Elibiary describes himself as not only associated with Homeland Security but also as a “proud American” who “hearts” Egypt.

…..Elibiary was in the news two years ago when he was accused of leaking confidential documents from the Texas Department of Public Safety to the media in an alleged effort to show the so-called “Islamophobia” of agencies operating under Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in Elibiary to her advisory council while she was still serving in that position.

Last month, he announced via Twitter that he had been promoted by the Department of Homeland Security. “I’m honored to be reappointed to Secretary’s Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) and promoted to Sr. Fellow position,” he wrote.

In an interview with Glenn Beck on TheBlaze TV in mid-September, Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy, said Elibiary “makes clear his affinity for the Muslim Brotherhood. He makes clear it is his purpose to stop the prosecution of people in connection with material support for terrorism.”

“He’s on the wrong side and that’s not something I believe we need informing our Homeland Security Department,” Gaffney added.
