Amr Elgindy, “The All American Boy”
By Gary Dobry
* new! unsealed court docs added on 1/13/08! (links below)
Apple Pie, Baseball and the Muslim Brotherhood
Ken Breen is a partner in the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski LLP. He was formerly an Assistant US Attorney who, according to his vitae published on Fulbright’s website, following 9/11, “served as Coordinator of the Capital Markets Unit of the Terrorist Financing Task Force in Washington, D.C.” His unit “…investigated whether profiteering occurred in the financial markets in anticipation of the September 11, 2001 attacks.”
Breen was selected by the US Attorney’s Office to litigate the US's criminal racketeering and stock fraud case against short-seller/informant, Amr "Tony" Elgindy, and his criminal enterprise.
Amr Elgindy was a resident of California. He ran his criminal enterprise from there. Why was Elgindy being held in a Brooklyn detention center while awaiting his trial in New York?
New York City was the site of the 9/11 and 1993 World Trade Center terrorist attacks. The Able Danger operation linked 9/11 hijacker, Mohamed Atta, to an al Qaeda cell and “refugee center” in Brooklyn, al-Kifah, which according to the Wall Street Journal was named by US prosecutors as the, “locus of the 1993 conspiracy to bomb the World Trade Center”.
There must be reason the US Attorney’s office chose a prosecutor with Breen’s background to try the Elgindy case, and in that particular jurisdiction.
Former FBI agent, Jeffrey Royer was a reputed member of Elgindy’s racketeering ring. Royer was indicted for stealing classified information with the intent to commit stock fraud.
Royer testified that his participation in Elgindy's ring was solely to "prevent 9/11” and that other agents had informed him Elgindy was a suspect in a “terror probe". Royer testified that by being indicted as a member of Elgindy’s racketeering ring, he was not being "allowed to do his job".
Another Elgindy co-defendant, Derrick Cleveland, was questioned by Breen, in the fourth full day of testimony in United States District Court in Brooklyn, about a “mid-September 2001 FBI investigation into Mr. Elgindy”. When Cleveland responded the investigation was related to "terrorism", Judge Raymond J. Dearie halted the proceedings.
Dearie instructed the jury that, as reported by Eric Dash in the NY Times on November 9, 2004, "This case has nothing to do with terrorism, You will hear no evidence that Mr. Elgindy or others were involved in 9/11."
Elgindy has denied any ties to 9/11. On November 2, 2005, on a Silicon Investor message board titled, “Dear Anthony”, Silicon Investor owner, Robert Zumbrunnen, posted one of many rambling manifestos penned by Elgindy from prison in which he denied any pre-knowledge of 9/11,
“Amazingly, and maliciously without a single shred of evidence to support and mountains of evidence to refute, Mr. Breen accused, Anthony Elgindy, an American who attended USC, played football, wrestled, and graduated an Illinois State Scholar, of being the one person on the planet who knew about Sept 11th!!"
Is Amr Elgindy really the All-American boy he claims to be? Or, is there really evidence, like Breen, Royer and Cleveland alluded to under oath that ties Amr Elgindy to 9/11?
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded by Hassan al Banna in 1928. Al-Banna was an advocate of Adolph Hitler. Under Hitler, al-banna and the Muslim Brotherhood served as a covert operation killing British troops for Hitler’s Nazi's in Egypt.
In the 1950’s the CIA hired Otto Skorzeny, former head of Hitler’s SS, to train secret police in Egypt, according to Burton Hersch in "The 'Old Boys'".
The Brotherhood (“Arab Nazis”), were deeply hidden in cells.They slipped under the radar of US military. They were of significant interest to the CIA because the Brotherhood opposed the alliance Egypt had formed with Communists in the USSR.
During WWII al Banna organized a Muslim Brotherhood branch in Palestine. This branch of the Brotherhood would later give to the world the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP).
Sami Al-Arian was a co-founder of IAP. Many Brotherhood fronts were offshoots of IAP, including the ones patriarchs of the Elgindy family were involved with, as we shall see.
IAP was incorporated in Chicago, Illinois, Elgindy's hometown, in 1981. FBI Counterterrorism chief, Oliver “Buck” Revell, was quoted in the Washington Post claiming, “IAP” was a “Hamas front.” Before IAP, Al-Arian was involved with another violent faction of Palestinian students called the Islamic Society (aka Muslim Brotherhood Palestine), best known as, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). The PIJ was cast out of Egypt because of its ties to a Brotherhood faction that made an assassination attempt on Egyptian President, Anwar Sadat.
Former U.S. Justice Department attorney, John Loftus, claims the CIA evacuated the Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt, sending them to Saudi Arabia. Once there, he claims, the Brothers commenced teaching Jihad to Saudi youth in schools and universities where they combined the doctrines of Nazism with an Islamic cult called Wahhabiism. Wahhabiism is a puritanical form of Islam. Its’ most famous follower is the mastermind of 9/11, Osama Bin Laden.
Khaled Elgindy, Amr's brother, and Abdurahman Alamoudi co-founded the American Muslim Council (AMC), an offshoot of IAP. Alamoudi announced publicly the AMC supported Hamas. Sami Al-Arian's daughter, Laila, and Khaled Elgindy, both contributed to the AMC’s Legislative Agenda for the 107th Congress. Khaled Elgindy was not only “defining” AMC, Brotherhood, "agenda" to the US Congress, he was also serving a member of Congress, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.
Khaled served as McKinney's press secretary. McKinney’s staff included members of CAIR, Council on American-Islamic Relations, and its’ parent company, IAP.
Raeed Tayeh, a McKinney aide, was a member of IAP’s executive board. Tayeh was also a researcher for United Association for Studies and Research (UASR). In 1993 a convicted Hamas operative testified in an Israeli court that the UASR was the “political arm of Hamas in the United States.”
The Elgindy’s also appeared to have ties to Osama bin Laden’s terrorist network. In 1998 Khaled Elgindy was in Iraq under the auspices of delivering "aid" to Iraqis with the International Relief Association. The International Relief Association is also known as the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO). US intelligence reports claim IIRO is a "Saudi humanitarian organization that operates in Canada" and “has ties to Osama bin Laden."
US Intel also reported that a “Muslim World League” was involved in the 1998 US embassy bombings and that the bombings were financed by money laundered through IIRO. Special CIA Agent David Kane cites Canadian immigration documents as evidence that IIRO also operated under the name of Muslim World League (MWL). In 1996, a State Department report disclosed evidence of the IIRO's support of terrorism and funding of Hamas and that, "one funder of the Bojinka plot to blow up airplanes over the Pacific was the head of the IIRO office in the Philippines". Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law, Mohammed Jamal Khalifa.
On February 23rd of 1998, six months before the embassy bombings in Africa, Osama bin Laden proclaimed Jihad against the US. The very next day, February 24th, several signatures appeared on a document entitled "Open Letter To President Bill Clinton", released by a group called the “Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf.”
The group demanded that the US government "support a military campaign to overthrow Saddam Hussein.” They called for "carpet bombing" Iraq and for “financial and military support for the Iraqi National Congress (INC).” Seymour Hersh in the New Yorker reported exile groups, “ supported by the INC”, conducted “sabotage operations inside Iraq.” Iran-Contra war criminal, Elliott Abrams’ name was among the Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf signatures on the “Open Letter” to Clinton.
Khaled Elgindy, while serving on Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney's Congressional staff, and while contributing to AMC Congressional Reports defining Brotherhood “agenda” to Congress, was simultaneously serving Elliot Abrams’ staff, as a research analyst on Abrams' US Commission on International Religious Freedom.
It appears the All American Boy’s brother, Khaled, had his fingers in a lot of pies, not all of them “apple pies”. While Abrams’ "Peace and Security" committee was calling for "carpet bombing" Iraq, Khaled and the IIRO were delivering "aid" to Iraqis that Abrams wanted to "carpet bomb".
Financing the “American” Dream
How did our All American Boy, Amr Elgindy, end-up in Albania as an agent of a humanitarian front?
Humanitarian fronts were a major source of financing for bin Laden’s terror network. As noted, Khaled Elgindy went to Iraq with IIRO under the auspices of “humanitarian aid". According to Robert Baer in an article titled, "The Fall of the House of Saud," (Atlantic Monthly, 2003), the brother of bin Laden’s deputy, al-Zawahiri, also worked for IIRO, in Albania. Fatos Klosi, the head of the Albanian Intelligence Service, was quoted in the London Times claiming that bin Laden used “humanitarian agencies” as “fronts” to “muscle into Albania.”
Elgindy proclaimed on Silicon Investor that he was an "agent" of an Albanian humanitarian organization called the Mother Teresa Humanitarian Organization (MTHO). MTHO was an al Qeada humanitarian front operated by the KLA, Kosovo Liberation Army.
On April 4, 1999, Elgindy posted on Silicon Investor that he met with "the chief of the local Mafia" in Macedonia who "guaranteed" him "safe passage to and back from Albania.”
One of the "refugees" that Elgindy was able to get “into the US” was a high-level member of the KLA, Rexhep Hoti. Rexhep Hoti was senior advisor to the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Bajram Rexhepi. Rexhepi was accused of war crimes during the 1998-1999 conflict in the Balkans in which he served as a KLA field surgeon for Mother Teresa.
Elgindy posted a letter on Silicon Investor from Rexhep Hoti. In the letter Hoti claims that he met Elgindy at a refugee camp in Macedonia called “Stankovec” and that Elgindy informed him that he would personally provide him with “financial help” and assistance getting into the United States.
Once in the US, according to Rexhep Hoti, Elgindy paid the Hoti’s living expenses. What money was used to “assist” the Hoti family? On June 2, 2000, Elgindy addressed, on Silicon Investor, the matter of “$14,000” he “collected” on Silicon Investor as an “agent” of MTHO.
Elgindy posted there were “two reasons” he was made an agent of MTHO - to, “direct donations to MTHO”, and to “handle and disburse the funds raised for refugees.”
Elgindy eventually disclosed to donors that MTHO’s tax ID # wasn't valid. SI donors could not claim their donations as tax deductible. To resolve the matter, Elgindy gave donors two options, “…take your money back” or allow him to, “spend it on refugees…”
Elgindy posted, “with only one exception among the 53 donors, nobody wanted their donation back…”
Amr Elgindy, our All American Boy, “assisted” Rexhep Hoti (senior advisor to a former KLA leader) realize the American Dream. A dream financed by message board posters on message boards Elgindy’s ring used to move the markets they traded in.
The Amazing Karnack
Coincidence, or not, Amr Elgindy ceased posting on the message boards after the arrest of AMC co-founder Abdurahman Alamoudi on September 28, 2003. All subsequent messages from Elgindy, after Alamoudi's arrest, were posted by Silicon Investor's Robert Zumbrunnen and Jeffrey S. Mitchell.
One month after Alamoudi's arrest, the Boston Herald reported Alamoudi's "palm pilot", seized by British police, contained names of "global terrorists".
The Herald also reported there were meetings between Alamoudi and "top leaders of Hamas". CNSNews.com reported that a senior government terrorism official told them Hamas was merging with elements of bin Laden's "all inclusive military arm ... that will carry out military strikes" against the US.
Amr Elgindy's father, Ibrahim, the press reported, had ties to another global terrorist linked to Hamas, Mohammad Salah. On July 19, 2003, three months before Alamoudi's arrest, a poster using the alias "salemshexnwo" posted:
On September 10, 2001, one day before 9/11, "SalemsHex12" predicted "lost operatives", "biosuits/helmets/goggles" and "silver bullets",
AUSA Breen told the judge, at a pre-trial detention hearing, that Elgindy had telephoned his broker on September 10, 2001, the same day SalemsHex12 posted his eerie 9/11 prediction, and asked him to "liquidate his children's $300,000 trust account.”
Breen claimed that Elgindy, "made a comment predicting the market would drop to 3,000 at a time when the Dow Jones stock index was at 9,600. Perhaps Mr. Elgindy had pre-knowledge of the Sept. 11 attacks. Instead of trying to report it, he tried to profit from it."
Like Judge Dearie, at the trial that followed, Magistrate Judge John Houston instructed the court he was going to "disregard" the suggestion Elgindy had anything to do with the 9/11.
The counts against Elgindy were in regards to committing stock fraud. The Court wasn’t interested in any of Elgindy’s reputed ties to terror.
What Markets did Elgindy Trade?
Osama bin Laden's brother, Hasan bin Laden, once served as a director of a US telecommunications company backed by Motorola called, Iridium. Motorola sells telecommunication equipment to Binladin Family Group. Saudi Binladin Group’s, Baud unit resells telecommunications equipment. Motorola hedged its investment in Iridium by negotiating a finance deal with Motorola where Iridium would have to purchase its communications equipment from Motorola. Iridium, in turn, could then sell the equipment to Baud, at reduced prices, in liquidation, if Iridium ever went bankrupt.
Iridium, in 1999, was a troubled company and a good short. Elgindy shorted it mercilessly. The shorting campaign against Iridium by Elgindy and his Silicon Investor flock sped-up the Iridium death spiral to bankruptcy.
When the 9/11 attacks took down standard means of communication, Iridium’s satellite-based phones were suddenly in demand. Iridium Satellite LLC, a privately held company, is the successor to the Iridium (IRID) Elgindy shorted. Iridium satellite service was re-established in 2001. Iridium’s private investors “profited” on 9/11 by default. The Iridium satellite system is being used by the US Department of Defense.
Iridium filed an application with the FTC for a transponder in the US. The application disclosed that Iridium was controlled by Sheikh Khalid Abdullah, a brother-in-law of the late King Fahd. After 9/11, Crown Prince Abdullah blamed Royal Family members for the attacks. The Crown Prince said, "… It was those brothers-in-law and some stupid young princes.” Which “brothers-in-law” was the Crown Prince refering to? The Ibrahims? Khalid Abdullah?
The phone just keeps ringing…
At the 2001 embassy-bombing trial, prosecutors cited telephone records showing that bin Laden's “satellite phone” was in contact with the mobile phone of Mercy International Relief Agency director Ahmad Sheik Adam. Mercy was one of many charities that served as fronts to aid the 9/11 attackers.
Elgindy allegedly wired money to Mercy International, which is reputedly affiliated with the Bank Al Taqwa, the financial arm of the Brotherhood. Elgindy co-defendant Derrick Cleveland claims Royer told him that investigators were looking into “$6 million that Elgindy had liquidated from two brokerage companies shortly before Sept. 11.” Royer claimed the government was “examining the money Elgindy gave to Mercy International.”
Soliman Biheiri is reputed to be a major figure in terrorism investigations of IIRO and Mercy International (both companies the Elgindy’s were allegedly involved with) according to 1993 embassy-bombing trial prosecutors and the FBI. A company Biheiri founded, BMI, was defined as a “financial conduit for several known Hamas and al Qaeda moneymen.” Biheiri was subpoenaed by the FBI who discovered that, “the true principals behind BMI were actually Musa abu Marzook and Yasin Qadi.”
Marzook was a powerful Hamas leader who lived stateside. Qadi was a reputed terrorist financier. Through the Muwafaq relief organization, Qadi allegedly funneled millions to al Qaeda.
Back in the Elgindy’s hometown of Chicago, the shit was hitting the fan. Al-Ali and IIRO had allegedly funneled millions of dollars to a chemical company in Chicago run by a director of Mercy International.
The FBI raided this company in 1997 amidst allegations of “terrorism support and suspicious chemical compounds.”
Global Chemical Corp was jointly owned by the IIRO and an entity called, Abrar Investments Inc. Al-Qadi had investments in Abrar and was also the director of its parent company. The FBI discovered Abrar gave Global Chemical more than half a million dollars, and the IIRO gave Global over $1 million. The president of Global Chemical, Mohammed Mabrook, was a suspected Hamas operative.
The FBI discovered Global was storing highly toxic chemicals in a warehouse but wasn’t selling them. In 1996, two years before the embassy bombings in Africa, an FBI chemical weapons expert examined the stored chemicals and concluded they were for “manufacturing explosives”. While no direct evidence of any bomb making was found, investigators knew a Hamas associate of Marzouk, Mohammad Salah, had previously trained US recruits to work with “basic chemical materials for the preparation of bombs and explosives.”
Elgindy’s father, Ibrahim, led a 1998 protest for Salah on behalf of Muslim Americans for Civil Rights and Legal Defense in front of the Federal Office building in Chicago. The FBI seized Salah’s assets with the assets of the Quranic Literacy Institute, another front Ibrahim Elgindy and Salah were involved in. Al-Qadi allegedly transferred $820,000 from a Swiss bank account to the Quranic Literacy Institute.
Ibrahim Elgindy was chairman of another “chemical” company, Linex Misr Company. Linex promoted an “anti-terrorism bomb blast protection” coating called “Paxcon”. CBS’s 60 Minutes aired a feature (10/31/04) entitled, “GIs Lack Armor, Radios, Bullets.” The feature showed US troops refusing missions because they lacked “anti-terrorism bomb blast protection.” Paxcon, per Linex, is a “coating approved by the US Air Force for anti-terrorism bomb blast protection.” So, with a $400 million defense budget, why don’t US troops have it?
Iridium was once run by bin Laden’s brother. Its’ successor company, Iridium Satellite LLC, was controlled by a Sheikh that Crown Prince Abdullah suggested may be one of the “stupid young princes” responsible for 9/11. This same company provides the satellite network the Department of Defense uses to communicate. This same company supplied US troops in Iraq with phones that had to be returned because they emitted a signal revealing the caller’s location.
Amr Elgindy, our All American Boy declared being an agent of an al Qeada “humanitarian front” that “assisted” high-level KLA members get into the US with donations from message board posters – the very same message boards his criminal enterprise used to move the markets they traded in.
Perhaps Breen’s Terrorist Financing Task Force, that investigated whether there was “profiteering” in anticipation of 9/11, could shed some light. The Elgindy trial sure didn’t.

NEW UNSEALED COURT DOCS, 911 - ADDED 1/13/08
Case 1:02-cr-00589-RJD Document 717 Filed 07/19/2007
Page 779, Line 6...
...The FBI was looking into whether Elgindy had a brother who worked at the Pentagon and left just prior to the attack there.more 9/11 stuff
Now, I know the FBI was looking into it but. as I understand it as well, there's absolutely no proof of that and it adds nothing. It adds nothing. The fact --the critical fact here is that there was an investigation; according to the government's evidence, that the news of that investigation was shared by Royer with Cleveland and a little bit of it with Elgindy. That's the important point.
The other thing on paragraph four reads: Elgindy had given money to Middle Eastern charities with ties to Al Quaeda. That last phrase, out, out. No reference to Al Quaeda, we don't need it .. The question is there was an investigation, information was relayed to Cleveland.
And then, finally, a member of Elgindy's wife's family had reported that Elgindy might have ties to terrorism...
Case 1:02-cr-00589-R.JD Document 717-7 Filed 07/19/2007
Court quashing terrorist ties
In addition to demonstrating the nature of the charged criminal activity, the 9/11-related evidence is also necessary to demonstrate the obstruction charges. The obstruction charges relate specifically to the Investigation which was initiated on September 18, 2001. While the focus of that investigation evolved over time, it began as a terrorism matter. To prove the nature of the obstruction, ,the information that was communicated by Royer and Wingate to the other enterprise members, the actions taken to obstruct the investigation, and the nature of the investigation must all be described for the jury. Further, as discussed in our previous submission, the specific, secret and
unique nature of the information cooperating witness Derrick Cleveland obtained about the Investigation provides crucial corroboration for his overall testimony. Moreover, Royer's endeavors to impede the Investigation both constitute the obstruction itself and also buttress the evidence of Royer'S other actions in showing his intent to use his position to benefit the enterprise.
Finally, the defenses' argument that even the mention of ~Middle Eastern Charities6 creates incurable prejudice is illconsidered.
The federal criminal justice system both before and after the attacks of September 11, 2001 has conducted numerous proceedings and trials that have involved terrorism and terrorist-related topics. Whether these cases relate to the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the Embassy bombings in Africa, terrorist financing, or a host of related activities, these matters were not and are not beyond the federal criminal justice system's abi!i~y'tq handle. As this case does not raise issues that even approach those faced in the~aforementioned cases, in which the charged crimes were actually terrorism, the concerns are even more reduced...
...Additionally, without the introduction of the fact of the 9/11-related aspects of the Investigation, the events of this case will si~ly not make sense to the jury. The jury will naturally question why Royer was interviewed by the FBI and what Royer and Wingate were searching for in the FBI computers or what caused Royer's concern about Elgindy, or Wingate's emotional reaction to the information. Further, the evidence also demonstrates that Royer actively misled the Investigation and other governmental actors, including a District Court, about Elgindy. Such evidence will be key totha--~rDment"-..!.~rOQf~...!U..__ corrupt purpose and their efforts to impede the Investigation is also key to the government's case.
