Earlier this week, everyone’s favorite fake teenage victim, Ahmed “Clock Kid” Mohammed resurfaced in the headlines with his family’s $15 million demand for restitution over the infamous fake clock incident. He and his family continue to push their narrative that Mohammed was the victim of “anti-Muslim discrimination” by both the school and law enforcement authorities.
But new information has just emerged — thanks to the work of Breitbart Texas — that reveal a very different picture of the school Mohammed claimed discriminated against him for being Muslim. In fact, if true, these new details cast further doubt on an already-shady story Mohammed and his family — aided and abetted by the liberals and their media — continue to propagate.
In fact, the details — from none other than the school’s Muslim valedictorian from 2015, Amena Jamali — completely undermine Mohammed’s narrative and suck further credibility (if there’s any left to begin with) from the hot air he and his cohorts have been spewing.
A Muslim student shared unexpected revelations about the same Texas high school attended by “Clock Boy” Ahmed in documents Breitbart Texas obtained through an open records request. The documents reveal a viewpoint unheard so far because Irving Independent School District officials cannot voice their side of the story due to federal privacy laws connected to the Mohamed family’s not signing a waiver to allow this information to become public.
Amena Jamali, a Muslim female and MacArthur High School’s 2015 valedictorian, reached out to “Mac,” short for MacArthur, family upon reading about Ahmed Mohamed in a truncated article that linked to the Dallas Morning News. The news story retold the Islamophobia victim version of the clock-in-a-box story with Ahmed’s father Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed claiming the arrest happened “…because his name is Mohamed and because of Sept. 11, I think my son got mistreated.” McArthur High School is the school attended by “Clock Boy” Ahmed at the time of the incident.
One of the documents Breitbart Texas obtained is Jamali’s lengthy Oct. 1 email to MacArthur High principal Dan Cummings, which completely dismantles the leftwing attack narrative that Ahmed’s Sept. 14 arrest was racially motivated. Jamali describes the opposite picture, calling “Mac” the place that changed her life, where she felt “respected as a Muslim.” She dubbed Irving ISD a place “that taught pride, accommodated Muslim prayer and dietary needs” and where “students of my religious community, including me, (are granted) two weeks every year to attend a religious ceremony.” Jamali wrote they allowed her to take “a whole month of school off and go for Haj.”
Jamali clearly excelled in the cultural environment at the place she calls “Mac.” Along the way to becoming class valedictorian, she was recognized nationally for her accomplishments. in June, 2013, she travelled with some of her teachers and classmates to New York City where she competed as a finalist in the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge. Jamali and her teammate Juan Ramos created a software game named “Better than History.”
In May, 2014, she and Ramos were invited to Washington, D.C., to participate in a science fair competition. The White House said the two teens are “Changing the World through Online Games.”
Now a college student, Jamali acknowledged she did not know first-hand what occurred at MacArthur with Ahmed, then underscored, “…Mac is a place where there is no or very little prejudice.”
She gushed about former teachers, one who told her to “come to him if someone ever bullied me for my dress (and NO one ever did)” and about another, “who stopped and waited for me to pray at so many UIL events.” Jamali described an environment that “taught me that I should be proud of being Muslim and that I can contribute to society WITH the uniqueness of my background, not in spite of.”
To hear Jamali’s account, the school Ahmed “Clock Kid” Mohammed attended was not only NOT Islamophobic — it appears to have bent over backward to make accommodations for Muslim students. And given that Jamali shared her account directly with the school — without intention of trying to get publicity (unlike another Muslim student we know) — why would we have reason to doubt the veracity of her comments?
Jamali’s narrative about the school both she and “Clock Kid” Mohammed is in direct conflict with his narrative — and that of the media’s. And because the school has been gagged from commenting, Mohammed has been able to get away with this — though, of course, many of us stopped buying his story long ago once the facts around the incident started to become clearer.
Kinda inconvenient, then, for Mohammed and his family to have the likes of Breitbart still digging for the truth — and the likes of us helping them to spread the truth around. This whole sham being perpetrated by Mohammed and his family is just shameful. While the media and our own president have already rewarded this hoax with widespread publicity that’s also resulted in financial gain — we can only hope the city of Irving, Texas does not fall prey to the family’s attempts at extortion.
