Bilal Philips BackgroundIslamic cleric Bilal Philips has been in the headlines lately, after the Australian government barred him from entering the country to speak at a conference. Philips, who has publicly condemned terrorism for the record, was linked to several figures involved in the 1993 World Trade Center conspiracy. Philips was involved in converting U.S. soldiers to Islam during and after the Gulf War. Names from that Saudi government-sanctioned program appear to have redirected to terrorist recruiter Clement Hampton-El. The details are here.
