Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne: Clockboy Ahmed Mohamed Told Reporters a Lot More than He told Police
I reminded everyone last week that clockboy Ahmed Mohamed is in the same town as the brouhaha that bubbled up earlier this year regarding a bill that would stand against all foreign law in Texas. At that time, Mayor Beth Van Duyne came under fire by Muslims in the area who wanted Sharia in Texas, but she wouldn’t back down. Now, she is opening up about the fraudulent little clockmaker Ahmed and claiming he had a whole lot more to tell reporters after the incident than he did police when they arrived at his school.
While a guest at the Arlington Republican Club, Van Duyne, who mostly spoke about Sharia and the criticism she received over her stand for American law, said, “In my own conversations with the police is that he was not forthcoming with information, but I just think common sense prevails. Does it make sense? And if not, why?”
She claims that from what she understands from police that Ahmed’s response to them was “evasive.” However, because he is a juvenile, his records are sealed and cannot be looked at.
“The family has been non-responsive to their requests to sign off that they can release that information,” said Van Duyne. “So right now, we’re waiting to hear back from the parents that we can release that information and have transparency out in the public.”
She also took time to speak to BlazeTV and said, “He told a lot more to the reporters than he ever told to the police. There’s a problem with that.”
She added, “If your child was in that school, and you saw something like this come in, you would want to make sure…. It is our priority to make our children safe in school, period.”
I agree with her assessment, but as I have said on numerous occasions, the safest place for children to be is in their homes, not “gun free zone” public indoctrination centers. However, since they are there, it mostly certainly should be a priority to make sure children are safe and not in danger of some Muslim misfit making a dry run with clock he didn’t even build!
She said that Irving is one of the safest cities in the country and though that is the case, she blasted the “misinformation” disseminated by Barack Hussein Obama as resulting in death threats to members of the police department and school district. That is par for the course for the agitator-in-chief though, who then invited Ahmed to the White House.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.

And why were these death threats issued? According to the mayor it was “for doing their jobs.”
Jim Hanson from the Center for Security Policy echoed Van Duyne’s comments and added, “I don’t think there’s any question that this latest event was a PR stunt. It was a staged event where someone convinced this kid to bring a device that he didn’t build, as you mentioned. It’s a RadioShack clock that he put in a briefcase, and in a briefcase it looks like a bomb. You know how I know that, Glenn? Because I’ve built briefcase bombs and blown them up. That’s what they look like. So, anyone who looked at that was reasonable in assuming that that was a dangerous device. They did that to create the exact scenario that played out. They wanted people to react, and they wanted to portray this kid as an innocent victim.”
“I think he was a pawn of potentially his father,” he continued. “His sister actually claimed that she was suspended. His sister told MSNBC that she was suspended by the same school district for making a bomb threat years ago. Don’t know if that’s true yet, but she said that in her own words. So, there’s a vendetta from them, and they’re tied, as you mentioned, with CAIR, and CAIR is Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas tied. They’re basically involved in civilization jihad, so I think you’re right.”
Ahmed was not charged, but did receive a three day suspension. Since that time, he has withdrawn from the school, and though he claims it has “torn the family” and “makes us very confused,” that isn’t stopping the whole family from flying to New York to address the United Nations and then go on the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca. When they come back, Ahmed says “we’ll visit President Obama.”
The question that lingers in my mind is, will that be to get further marching orders in his new school?
This has been nothing more than a testing of the cities vigilance against Islam and against Sharia. So far, the city hasn’t backed down nor should they.
