Last month, on September 12, Mohamed Elhassen Mohamed, father of Texas ‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Mohamed, posted on Facebook a photo of the World Trade Center Twin Towers shrouded in raging smoke in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The photo appeared on his Sudanese National Reform party page on the day after the 9/11 anniversary.
The post appeared as recently as Thursday morning but has since been taken down. It sourced to the Sudanese Military Establishment and asserts a truther philosophy that 9/11 was an inside job, calling these “so-called” events a “rumor.”
Through the social media site’s Arabic translation, the post also describes 9/11 as “just an American industry media” that “some tried leveled terrorism ‘Islamist.” Conversely, it also alleges America deserved the Al Qaeda perpetrated attack, calling it the “egg that lays golden eggs for America has terrorism” that “came to her on a plate to invade Muslim countries.”
Presently, Mohamed tours the Middle East with his clock-making son, but he is also a Sudanese Reform Party activist and the repeatedly failed Sudanese National Reform party candidate for president of that country, although he and his family reside in Irving, a Dallas suburb. Two days after the 9/11 truther post, on Sept. 14, son Ahmed Mohamed was arrested for bringing in the unassigned homemade clock-in-a-box that appeared to be a suitcase timepiece hoax bomb to school district officials and local law enforcement, although charges were dropped.
Again, on Sept. 28, Mohamed’s National Reform Party Facebook page posted a 15 minute English language video chockful of 9/11 conspiracy theories insinuating the collapse of the Trade Center’s twin towers was because “explosives were placed in these buildings before the attacks.”
The industrial style video purports “the fact that the towers collapse in 10 seconds” as conspiratorial evidence that 9/11 was an ‘inside job.’ The video’s original poster posts 9/11 is “all a lie.” It also goes after the collapse of the Trade Towers’ Building 7 as “suspicious” because it was not hit by an airplane but its collapse mimics demolition of buildings “brought down by explosives.”
The footage then flashes to an after-collapse clouded debris filled lower Manhattan street shot and a image of former President George W. Bush while narrating: “There is a tremendous amount of evidence that the government was involved in the September 11 attack.” It also asserts its proof of conspiratorial theory is “speculation” but says the rest of it is “scientific fact” and then blames the mainstream media’s ineptitude to report accurately on this topic the result of them being controlled by a “small group of people.” It even claims that Western journalists, intent on “manipulating emotions,” only broadcasted photos of Osama Bin Laden and “this creates anger towards Arabs and fools people into thinking the Arabs are responsible for the attack.”
The lengthy propaganda footage also attacks Penn & Teller’s 2005 debunking of 9/11 ‘truther’ conspiracy theories. They list them among news media or television shows that “try to make us look like idiots.” Also, the video blames “US military officials, television executives and some Israeli and British government officials” for the attacks, according to Townhall. It charges that other 9-11 ‘truth seeker groups are part of the conspiracy to withhold information.
On Sept. 16, the elder Mohamed professed his love for America on his front lawn when the Dallas chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) hosted a press conference, two days after Ahmed’s arrest. Mohamed previously annnounced he wanted to take the teen clockmaker on a pilgrimmage to Mecca. On Monday, Ahmed tweeted, “Qatar is Amazing!”
