Cool Clock, Ahmed! You’ve Inspired Al Qaeda.

Remember Clock Boy? The Muslim kid who claimed to be “racially profiled” after bringing a “clock” to school that looked exactly like an explosive device? Well, Ahmed Mohammed is back in the news. And no, it’s not because he “peacefully” opened a charity for underprivileged children seeking guidance in math and engineering. Rather, Clock Boy appears to have aroused radical Islamic terror group Al Qaeda. Shocker.

In the latest issue of Inspire, the group’s propaganda magazine, Clock Boy is revered as a source of inspiration. PJ Media reports:

The new al-Qaeda issue featured a picture of the two meeting as well as the clock bomb, with the notation: “Obama, ‘because of his sensitivity towards Muslim discrimination,’ sees an opp to further his PR by acknowledging a brilliant 14 yr old Muslim boy (who in fact even inspired us in a way).”

The Inspire issue features step-by-step photos of how to build a parcel bomb, a magnetic car bomb, and a door-trap bomb.

The magazine is distributed by Al Qaeda’s main affiliate in Yemen, known to Western security officials as AQAP, or Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Inspire’s latest cover features a large headline reading “Professional Assassinations,” with articles entitled “Home Assassinations,”instructing potential recruits about the logistics of killing Americans in their homes in the dark of night.

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, the issue “provides detailed information and instructions on preparing for and carrying out various targeted assassinations. It stresses that an assassin should possess different options to carry out an attack, which gives him or her a greater chance for success, and elevates the operation to a more ‘professional’ level.”

In recent months, Ahmed, aka Clock Boy, has done quite a lot to tear into the Leftist allegation that he’s somehow an innocent victim of big bad American racists. Actually, Ahmed has single-handedly undermined the myth of the moderate Muslim. After suing the Texas police department, he fled to Qatar, an Islamic hellhole infamous for its abuse of women and subjugation of religious minorities. So much for tolerance. When reports surfaced that Ahmed had met with Muslim Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir, we all thought it couldn’t get worse. Well, it did. As The Daily Wire reported, Clock Boy’s “moderate” Muslim father may actually be a 9/11 truther and anti-American agitator.

All of this comes as the White House continues to sow racial strife and propagate the false narrative of “Islamophobia.”

After all, President Obama was Ahmed’s number one fan. He invited him to the White House. Remember this?

Maybe hindsight is 20/20. The problem is Obama is a stubborn social justice warrior. He’s unlikely to change to change his tweet to something more appropriate, something more in sync with reality, something like: “Cool Clock, Ahmed! You’ve Inspired Al Qaeda.”
