@AmericanAir recognizes Hamas leader for 'leadership'
While I did pick up the American Way magazine on my flight from New York to London two weeks ago, and I do recall seeing this article, I had no idea that one of the four employees to whom American Airlines gave a 'leadership award' in June is also a leader in a different organization: Hamas.
The September edition of American Airlines’ magazine – American Way – revealed Mohamed El Sharkawy received the 2015 Earl G. Graves Award for Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion “for (his) work in making a lasting impression in the workplace.”
The award was given to Sharkawy at the end of June, but was published in American Airlines’ American Way in September.
Mohamed El Sharkawy was previously the Director for Hamas in Arizona, doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations or CAIR. Evidence, some of which is listed below, reveals CAIR was created by the US Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas) in 1994 to be a node for Hamas in America to provide the Hamas cause with “media, money, men, and all that” meaning propaganda, fundraising, recruits, and all else that comes with waging jihad.
Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).
Is this the kind of individual who should have access to sensitive areas of Phoenix Airport or American Airlines?
American Airlines Public Affairs Office refused to comment on El Sharkawy’s employment, but encouraged UTT (Understanding the Threat) to contact the FBI if threat information exists.
El Sharkawy is also serves as the Chairman of the Arizona Muslim Police Advisory Board.As many of you know, I do a lot of flying on American and its partner airlines. I've traveled to the US on those airlines five times this year (2015) and eleven times in the last two years. Time to make a change?
