According to Israeli security officials, Iranian-born American lawyer Fatima Mohammadi was one of five (5) ‘activists’ allegedly having ties to Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist groups who traveled in last week’s intercepted Mavi Marmara Flotilla to Gaza.

Mohammadi lists “intermittent travel between the U.S., U.A.E. and Iran” since 2007 on her LinkedIn profile while working as Legal Counsel for the German-based PEDEX Germany International, FZCo.

The Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported that the Israeli Defense Forces (‘IDF’) reportedly learned that Mohammadi intended to bring “illegal electronic devices into the Gaza Strip.”

Mohammadi denied the allegations in an e-mail interview with The New York Times, calling the allegations “illegitimate and unfounded.”

Mohammadi told the Times that:

I have no idea what they’re referring to as the only electronics I had in my possession or in my bag were personal items: a camera, a video camera, and my personal phones. All electronics, including laptops, were confiscated at our arrest while on board the ship and none have been returned.
