Bye-Bye, Clock Boy: Ahmed and Family to Move to Qatar

After meeting with a genocidal dictator and lamenting about how hard it is growing up in America, the “Clock Boy” and his family have decided to leave the United States and move to Qatar.

“After careful consideration of all the generous offers received, we would like to announce that we have accepted a kind offer from Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) for Ahmed to join the prestigious QF Young Innovators Program, which reflects the organization’s on-going dedication to empowering young people and fostering a culture of innovation and creativity,” Ahmed’s family said in a statement. “This means that we, as a family, will relocate to Qatar where Ahmed will receive a full scholarship for his secondary and undergraduate education.”

Ahmed said he was “really impressed” with the Qatar Foundation.

The Qatar Foundation has ties to Hamas, the anti-Semitic terrorist organization.

“I got to meet other kids who are also really interested in science and technology,” Ahmed said. “I think I will learn a lot and also have lots of fun there.”

Ahmed and his family moving to Qatar is fitting. His dad, Mohammed Elhassan Mohammed, has said that “Islamophobia” is the reason why his son was arrested for a bringing a clock that looked like a bomb to school, appears to be a 9/11 Truther, and said the incident involving his son will be used to “spread Islam.”

The Qatar Foundation has ties to Hamas, the anti-Semitic terrorist organization. In fact, Qatar is the home of the leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, where he gets royal treatment in a five-star hotel. Qatar also finances Hamas and allows their political leadership to operate in Doha. Additionally, Qatar finances and shelters many other Islamic terror groups, including ISIS and al-Qaeda:

There has been support among the royal family for radical Islamist groups, including ISIS’s predecessor network and Al Qaeda. According to The New York Times, one royal family member, Abdul Karim al Thani, operated a safe house for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who eventually established and led AQI [which became ISIS], when he was traveling between Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 2000s. Abdul Karim also provided Qatari passports and more than one million dollars to finance Zarqawi’s network. Another royal family member, Shaykh Abdullah bin Khalid al-Thani, who held top ministerial posts over a period of two decades through mid-2013, sheltered on his farm other al-Qaeda members including Khalid Shaykh Mohammad, and welcomed Osama bin Laden there twice, according to a Congressional Research Service report. Khalid Shaykh Mohammad eventually became the mastermind behind September 11.

Qatar’s regime is authoritarian, according to Denis MacEoin at the Gatestone Institute. “Although non-Muslims are free to worship there, Qatari law bans any form of proselytization or outward show of faith (such as crosses on churches),” MacEoin writes. “There are severe laws against homosexuality, adultery (technically a capital crime, with provisions for flogging and stoning), and public criticism of the regime.”

The “Gitmo 5” released in the Bowe Bergdahl trade — all of whom were considered high-level threats — were given a hero’s welcome in Qatar.

Ahmed and his family will love living in Qatar. They won’t be victims of any more “Islamophobia” and his dad and the Qatari government share the same goal: to “spread Islam.”

So long, Ahmed, we hardly knew ye.
