When filling out his application for “top communications official” for the Muslim Brotherhood, his connection with The Clinton Foundation must have gotten him the job. Much of his official work with the Brotherhood actually took place while still claiming to be employed by the Clinton Foundation according to his LinkedIn profile.
El-Haddad gained a reputation for pushing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.
He was raised in a family of prominent Brotherhood supporters and became the public face of the Islamist organization soon after leaving his post at the Clinton Foundation.
The Egyptian government is coming down on those loyal to the former President Mohamed Morsi. Gehad el-Haddad and his father had deep ties with Morsi, working closely as an adviser to the then President.
“It was only a matter of time before Gehad el-Haddad was arrested,” Egypt expert Eric Trager told the Washington Free Beacon. “Many of the other Muslim Brotherhood spokesmen have been apprehended, and in addition to decapitating the organization, the military-backed government has been specifically targeting the Brotherhood’s media wing, including by shutting down its T.V. stations at the time of Morsi’s ouster on July 3.”
Of interest is the knowledge Haddad claims to have gained working at the Clinton Foundation which helped him in his work on a project called the Renaissance Project with the Muslim Brotherhood.
While working for the Clinton Foundation,
He “setup the foundation’s office in Egypt and managed official registration,” “supervised policy-making workshops & presented foundations views,” and “presented projects to high-level government officials,” among many other duties.
So much conflict of interest, it hurts!
