Is Muslim Boy’s Clock Invention A Hoax and Fraud?

An engineer debunked a Muslim boy’s claim that he built a clock from scratch.   Ahmed Mohammed gained worldwide notoriety when he brought the clock to school and was later arrested for bringing what appeared to be a suitcase bomb.  Mohammed received praise from praise the Muslim world, President Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, and was offered an internship at Twitter.

In excess of $25,000 has been donated to Mohamed through GoFundMe, LaunchGood and other organizations.  His family have not commented about claims that the clock is a hoax, and they are still planning on keeping thousands of dollars in donations and taking legal action against the school and the police.

Judge Andrew Napolitano said

If the parents were involved in the hoax, now you now have a fraud going on” because money has been collected on false pretenses .. If this was part of a purposeful stunt and if the parents were involved in this, and everybody from Mark Zuckerberg to President Obama fell for this, this is not good. This is people overreacting because of his last name, or his skin color, or the atmosphere of fear. We saw a clock, we assume it’s dangerous. The kid who made the clock, or brought it in, has a Muslim ancestry. I wish race could be out of this but all of that goes aside if this was some sort of a purposeful stunt.
