Ahmed ‘Clock Boy’ Mohamed and his father were ordered by a Texas court to pay Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro’s attorney’s fees and other court-related expenses after filing a defamation lawsuit against him in 2015 (per EAG News).
Shapiro covered the boy and his family following the infamous incident in which the boy brought a homemade clock to school and his teacher mistook the contraption for a bomb.
Shapiro accused the boy and his family of creating a setup.
Check it out:
Mohamed’s politically active father, who has ties to terrorist-sponsoring foreign regimes, then took the boy on a world tour and was photographed with wanted war criminal and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir before visiting the White House at President Obama’s invitation. Obama tweeted support for Ahmed as police investigated the situation.
Activist groups including the Council on American Islamic Relations and others, meanwhile, accused officials of Islamophobia while the Center for Security Policy, Glenn Beck, Shapiro, Fox News and other news organizations investigated and opined on Ahmed’s story.
Many of those folks believe the case is an example of “civilization jihad” promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood.
