Mohammed Noseeir Q&A session with MFI President Dr Ahmad on May 11, 2009 as part of our brown bag lunch series. Mohammed Nosseir is Chair of the Secretariat of International Relations and a member of the Election Committee of the Democratic Front Party, established in 2007 to promote liberal democracy in Egypt. In these two roles he is working to establish relationships with international liberal organizations and parties and, additionally, to recruit and promote candidates for the 2010 parliamentary elections with the goal of advancing liberalism, political participation, and globalization. Mr. Nosseir also has extensive experience in the private sector, and is general manager of Global Marketing Consultancy, which he founded in 1997. During his fellowship, he hopes to gain insights to advance his political reform work through meetings with U.S. politicians and elected officials to discuss their campaign strategies, communication protocols, and fundraising; with national NGOs focused on good governance; and academics specializing in American electoral politics.

Azim Noordin Khamisa brown bag lunch at a Minaret of Freedom Institute on April 4, 2009. Azim Noordin Khamisa, an author, activist and inspirational speaker was born in Kenya, Africa and had early training in mathematics, economics andinternational finance. A successful international investment banker with over 35 years experience, he hasconducted business in Africa, Middle East, Europe and Asia. Committing his life to halting the continuing cycle of violence among the youth, Azim became a social activist after his 20-year-old son Tariq was senselessly murdered while delivering pizzas in January 1995 by Tony Hicks, a 14-year-old gang member. Out of unspeakable grief and despair, Khamisa was inspired to transform his loss through the miraculous power of forgiveness. Believing that there were “victims at both ends of the gun,” Azim forgave Tony and founded the Tariq Khamisa Foundation to break the cycle of youth violence by saving lives, teaching peace and planting seeds of hope in their future.
