Obama adviser says again that the USA is an ‘Islamic country’

An Obama adviser who ruffled feathers last year claiming the U.S. is “an Islamic country with and Islamically compliant constitution” is reportedly at it again.

Mohamed Elibiary is a senior fellow of Obama’s Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council.

According to a report from the Investigative Project on Terrorism, or IPT, Elibiary revisited his October 2013 tweet in which he claimed the U.S. was an “Islamic country,” explaining in another tweet Saturday (reportedly since deleted), “I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country. Pls study up on the difference b4 attacking me.”

IPT reports a source close to Elibiary explained the Homeland Security adviser meant to say that he feels there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution and the American system that runs contrary to Islam…

@1776son America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!
