About Mohammad al-Massari Dr. Mohammad Al-Massari is an exiled Saudi physicist and political dissident who gained asylum in the United Kingdom in 1994. He runs the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights and is an adviser to the Islamic Human Rights Commission. Mohammed Al-Masari fought deportation from the United Kingdom in 1996. During the trial of individuals charged with roles in the bombing of the American embassy in Nairobi evidence was made public that an Exact M 22 satellite phone purchased by another Saudi dissident Saad Al Faqih, and given to Mohammed Al Masari in 1996, to aid in his deportation fight, received a call from one of the Nairobi suicide bombers eight days before the attack. The phone was all reported to have been used to make calls to arrange an interview of Usama bin Laden by ABC News World News Tonight. There are reports that attribute to Mohammed Al-Masari the assertion that Iraq's leader Saddam Hussein contacted Afghan Arabs in late 2001, following the American invasion, inviting them to find refuge in Iraq. In its report of this assertion the Middle East Online noted that other experts disputed the claim. He has been known to declare British troops in Iraq to be legitimate targets for militants, and has hosted videos of bomb attacks and beheadings on his website. He runs a radio station with similar messages, including songs calling for a jihad (holy war) against coalition forces. Although some government officials have expressed concern over the content of his broadcasts, Dr. al-Massari insists that his radio station is not broadcast in Britain and therefore is not under the jurisdiction of the British government. He got his professorship from University of California, Berkeley after he invented a solar-energized car in Germany. He was one of the most outstanding students in Berkeley and his name is written in the Hall of Fame. He also was the chairman in the physics department in King Saud University at Riyadh and taught in the university. Al-Massari and his Tajdeed web site get a few mentions in a 2006 analysis of the use of graphics in Islamist terrorist propaganda. The Tajdeed website was taken down in July 2007, possibly in response to publicity generated by a MEMRI report about that site and others like it. He is the former head of CDLR and currently the head of the Party for Islamic Renewal.
