Elibiary has a history of making controversial remarks on Twitter. In November of last year he faced a fierce backlash from critics for saying that he considers America to be “an Islamic country.”
Elibiary also stated at the time that “sociologically speaking” the Christian right is “similar” to the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that he has described as “pragmatic” and “non-violent.” Elibiary also has argued in the past that the Muslim Brotherhood poses no threat to the United States and once referred to former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as “Egypt’s Mandela,” a reference to the recently deceased South African leader.
Elibiary’s controversial rhetoric and support for the Muslim Brotherhood has drawn criticism on Capitol Hill from lawmakers such as Reps. Michele Bachmann ( R., Minn. ) and Louie Gohmert ( R., Texas ).
Elibiary also has experienced financial difficulties with his non-profit group, the Freedom and Justice Foundation, which had its non-profit status revoked by the IRS due to the organization’s refusal to file transparency forms revealing the sources of its funding.
Elibiary did not respond to an email request for comment and explanation of his tweets. A DHS spokesman also did not respond to a request for comment on the comments.
