    A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Irving ISD, the city of Irving and several others filed by the father of a teen who was arrested after bringing a homemade clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb. The federal lawsuit alleged Ahmed Mohamed's civil rights were violated in September 2015 when Irving police officers took him into custody at MacArthur High School and charged him with making a "hoax bomb." The then 14-year-old was also suspended from school for three days.

    Ahmed Mohamed and his "clock" The child exploited by CAIR and President Barack Hussein Obama to create the false impression that America is a seething hotbed of Muslim-hatred had his nonsensical religious discrimination lawsuit tossed by a federal judge in Dallas. I am referring to Ahmed Mohamed, the teenaged poster boy for “Islamophobia” whom the Council on American-Islamic Relations relentlessly pimped as a victim. In fact, Mohamed is a bomb hoaxer called Clock Boy by some.

    Remember Ahmed the Clock Boy? He was the high school student arrested and suspended last year when he brought a disassembled clock to school in Texas because it was suspected to be a bomb. Young Ahmed Mohamed was hailed in much of the mainstream media at the time as a genius because he supposed made a digital clock. Well, that turned out to be completely untrue. Far from being a budding Einstein, Ahmed merely removed a clock from its plastic casing and then placed it into a pencil case. After loudly drawing attention to his "invention," he was sent to...
  • “The talk”: 6 Muslim parents on what they tell their kids about Islamophobia

    On January 5, the Council on American-Islamic Relations offered a new service for the Muslim American families among its members: It released a guide titled "A Muslim parent's guide to talking to children about acts of violent extremism." It was meant to help parents guide their children through a new world in which the tide of Islamophobia, as well as the threat of violent extremism, is growing. The guide reflects a difficult new truth: Muslim parents in the US and Canada today no longer just have to worry about giving their kids the "birds and the bees" talk. They must...

    Within days of demanding a total of $15 million from the City of Irving and the Irving Independent School District, “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed announced in a long distance phone interview from Qatar, he is homesick and wants to come home to Texas now. In October, Ahmed accepted a fully-funded education scholarship from the Qatar Foundation, an organization with reputed ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, over an invitation to MIT, which is among the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the world. The family announced they would relocate to Qatar to accommodate his education, which they did. Dallas’ KTVT...
  • Television news coverage of Ahmed Mohamed $15 million lawsuit?

    I just finished watching about an hour of local news on the local NBC affiliate, and then the NBC Nightly News, and I believe that they didn't cover the $15 million lawsuit to be filed by Ahmed Mohamed's family. I've been reading articles on the internet at the same time, but don't think I would have missed mention of the case if any of these programs had covered it. It makes sense that the television news wouldn't want to draw attention to this development, just as they never reported other facts in the case, starting with Ahmed not actually making...

    DALLAS (AP) — A 14-year-old Muslim boy who was arrested after a homemade clock he brought to school was mistaken for a possible bomb will be moving with his family to the Middle East so he can attend school there, his family said. Ahmed Mohamed's family released a statement Tuesday saying they had accepted a foundation's offer to pay for his high school and college in Doha, Qatar. He recently visited the country as part of a whirlwind month that included a Monday stop at the White House and an appearance Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol. "We are going to...

    “Clock kid” Ahmed Mohamed and his family announced Tuesday in a news release that they will move to Qatar, less than 24 hours after the 14-year-old met with President Barack Obama at the White House….is this not peculiar? THIS is what we know! “Our family has been overwhelmed by the many offers of support we have received since the unfortunate incident of Ahmed’s arrest. From the White House to Sudan, to Mecca, we have been welcomed by a variety of individuals, businesses and educational institutions, which have all provided Ahmed with real encouragement and the ambition to continue to work...

    It's really easy to sucker the knee-jerk left -- a group so broad that it includes President Obama, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Sergey Brin of Google, and Bill Nye the purported “Science Guy.” Ahmed Mohammed (or maybe his dad) just proved that by pulling off the Great Clock Caper in Texas, and now they are taking the money and running – to Qatar. Taking apart a 1980s-era digital clock and putting it into a pencil case so that it bore some resemblance to a bomb, and then bringing it to school for a science fair was guaranteed to trigger...

    Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old teenager who rose to fame after he brought a disassembled clock that looked like a bomb into class, is moving to the Islamic supremacist nation of Qatar. […] Notably, the foundation sponsoring Mohamed’s residency in Qatar has been accused of funding the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas; leading the world famous soccer team Barcelona to dump its sponsorship deal with QF in 2014. … The teenager has often accused America of being a racist nation. […] But regardless of what Ahmed actually faced in America, he is virtually guaranteed to experience no anti-Muslim biases in Qatar. That’s...

    After Ahmed Mohamed was detained by police for bringing a homemade clock to his Texas high school because school officials thought it looked like a bomb, President Obama invited the tinkering Muslim teen to bring it to the White House. “Cool clock, Ahmed,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.” Despite the ninth-grader’s repeated insistence that the device was not a bomb, Ahmed was handcuffed and driven to a juvenile detention center, and police considered pressing charges against him over...

    ... Ted Cruz on Sunday said that Ahmed Mohamed, the MacArthur High School freshman arrested for bringing a homemade digital clock to school, was being used as a tool by President Barack Obama to “divide” the country. “President Obama, at every stage, tries to politicize what happens, whether it is this teenager here in Texas, whether it is the shootings we saw in the Pacific Northwest,” Cruz said before participating in a presidential forum in Plano. “Over and over again, sadly, he seeks to try to divide us, to try to tear us apart. The president really ought to be...

Obama is hosting Astronomy Night and invited Mohamed after news broke that he had been detained and handcuffed by police for bringing the hoax device to school. ** Mohamed will not be bringing the hoax clock to the White House as he has not retrieved it from Irving, Texas police, even though police say he has...

    A Texas teen’s journey from handcuffs to presidential handshakes reminds us how far some remain from understanding this nation’s founding ideals, a lesson a former president – and inventor – might help us understand even as 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed visits the White House at the invitation of President Obama. A month ago, the Irving, Texas, high school student was arrested for demonstrating ingenuity while Muslim by inventing a clock. Like Ahmed, Thomas Jefferson was an inventor. Coincidentally, he also helped imagine our concept of religious freedom. Jefferson, like the Texas teen, also loved a new gadget. In 1806, while a...

    The Muslim teenager from Texas who was arrested for bringing his home-made clock to school was a “weird little kid” that could have a future in crime, one of his former teachers said, according to the Daily Mail. Ralph Kubiak, a retired teacher from the Sam Houston Middle School, said that 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed was a troublemaker in his younger years. “He’s one of those that could either be CEO of a company or head of a gang,” Kubiak was quoted as having told the Dallas Morning News. […] The clock debacle wasn’t the first time Mohamed raised eyebrows in...

    Teenage clockmaker invited to Qatar by an organization with ties to the terror group The story of Ahmed Mohamed, the Dallas schoolboy made famous by the reaction to his arrest for bringing a homemade clock that resembled a suitcase bomb to school, has taken another curious turn. According to the Dallas Morning News, Ahmed and his family have accepted an invitation extended by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development to visit Qatar. Their sister institution, the Qatar Foundation International (QFI) was founded by Sheikh bin Al Thani, who also created Al Jazeera. QFI has links to the...

    Everyone was expecting North Texas’ most famous teen to return home from his national tour this week. A Dallas public relations firm hoping to sign Ahmed Mohamed had even made plans for a limousine to pick him up at the airport when they flew in from New York. But they’ll have to wait a little longer, because Ahmed and his family are detouring for Qatar, per a statement the family released this morning. “The last few weeks have been truly life-changing for my son Ahmed and for our family,” Mohamed Elhassan Mohamad said in a prepared statement announcing the trip....

    This is something odd about the case that occurred to me earlier in the day. How often do you see minors who have been suddenly catapulted from ordinary anonymous life into national and international fame by some incident, and they are apparently routinely interviewed by the media by themselves? No parents or other family with them during the interviews, and no attorneys either. I've seen two videotaped interviews of him, one with the Dallas Morning News, and the other on Al Jazeera, and read other interviews, and so far it seems like he does the interviews alone. I do remember...
