A convoy of police vehicles entered the isolated northern village of Gornja Maoca, known to be inhabited by many Wahhabis Muslims, and officers wearing black masks and camouflage uniforms surrounded several houses, according to an Associated Press video. The reporter saw the security forces enter some homes before officers asked him to leave.


17 MUSLIMS ARRESTED IN SERBIA October 29th, 2011...Serbian police yesterday arrested 17 people in the Muslim-populated area of Sandzak after a suspected radical Islamist opened fire on the US embassy in Sarajevo, local media reported.


“This morning at 5am a [police] operation was launched against the extremist Islamist Wahhabi movement in the territory of Novi Pazar, Sjenica and Tutin,” Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic told the Tanjug news agency. All three towns are in southwestern Serbia with large Muslim communities.


Seventeen people were arrested, one of them from Bosnia,” Serbian police chief Milorad Veljovic told the private B92 TV channel. The arrests came after the attack on the US embassy by a Serbian national with ties to the local Wahhabi community, a radical branch of Islam. “Police will determine whether there is a need to detain more people,” Veljovic said.

The suspected radical Islamist, a Serb national from Novi Pazar identified by Bosnian police as Mevlid Jasarevic, was wounded and arrested after opening fire on Friday on the US embassy in Sarajevo. A police guard was wounded in the attack.

PRIOR RAID AND MUSLIM ARRESTS...Serbia: Eleven Muslims jailed for terror plots.Belgrade, 3 July 2011 (AKI) - A special Belgrade court on Friday sentenced 11 members of a radical Islamic Wahabi movement to more than 60 years in prison after they were found guilty of planning terrorist activities and illegal weapons possession.


Fifteen members of the group were arrested in Serbia’s southern Sandzak region, which has a substantial Muslim population. The trial started in January last year but 12 members of the group refused to engage defence lawyers, saying they did not recognise a Serbian court and could be “judged only by Allah”.

Leader of the group, Senad Ramovic, was sentenced to 13 years, while another ten members received from six months to eight years in jail. Three members of the group were acquitted and one is being tried separately. The group operated a terrorist training camp on Ninaja mountain near Sandzak’s regional centre of Novi Pazar and police discovered a large cache of weapons, explosives and ammunition at the camp.


Police also discovered maps and photos of buildings they were planning to blow up including the US embassy in Belgrade. According to the indictment, the group also planned to kill the head of Islamic Community in Sandzak Muamer Zukorlic, after accusing him of being a CIA agent.

Congressional Investigators Want 9/11 Suspects Eyad al-Rababah and Daoud Chehazeh Questioned About Anwar Awlaki Links to Al-Qaeda Agent Ziyad Khaleel.



FOX NEWS..House Homeland Security Committee investigators want the 9/11 suspects questioned about the American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and his possible role in the murder of nearly 3,000 Americans, Fox News has learned.

In the letter, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, wrote to Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is responsible for directing interrogations of detainees in military custody at Guantanamo, including the self-described architect of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

King asked the agency to question detainees involved in plotting 9/11 about the possible roles of Eyad al-Rababah of Jordan, Daoud Chehazeh of Syria and Awlaki in the terror attack.

The House Homeland Security Committee initiated the investigation into the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and whether he was an overlooked player in the terrorist attacks of 9/11; the 3-page letter from committee chairman Representative Peter King (R-New York) to Attorney General Eric Holder argues that a decade after the worst terrorist attack on the United States, the full story of 9/11 has not been told.

The letter says the committee is also seeking “files, reports, analysis, assessments, memoranda, notes and presentation in all forms” that are related to long-closed FBI investigations of Anwar al-Awlaki in 1999. In that case, the San Diego terrorism task force was investigating an alleged link between al-Awlaki, Usama bin Laden and a “known procurement agent named Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa…(who) had previously purchased a satellite phone for (bin Laden) for use in the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Africa.”


U.S. LOOKS FOR LOCAL TERROR TIES, SOURCES SAY; 2 MOSQUES, FUND RAISING DRAW SCRUTINY OF FEDERAL GRAND JURY.(NEWS)

Article from: St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)
January 20, 2003


Byline: Karen Branch-Brioso, And Peter Shinkle Of The Post-Dispatch; A wide-ranging federal grand jury investigation in St. Louis is looking into possible terrorist connections in the Muslim community here, according to people familiar with the inquiry. Among the subjects of the investigation are two small mosques, Muslim businessmen and fund-raising efforts for Palestinian groups. 
 
Prosecutors also have asked grand jury witnesses about Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel, a former resident of Columbia, Mo., and the St. Louis area who bought the satellite telephone that al-Qaida leaders used to plot the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. Ziyad Sadaqa, who was never charged in the bombings, raised money here for Palestinian groups. He reportedly was killed in an auto accident in Saudi Arabia last year, but federal authorities apparently suspect he may still be alive.  "The feds thought that this Ziyad Khaleel guy faked his death at hajj (the pilgrimage to Mecca) to get out of legal trouble," said a source familiar with the prosecutors' questioning.
Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel had been roommates with Imam Muneer Arafat during the time period when he was obtaining communication equipment for Osama bin-Laden.  Imam Muneer Arafat came to the Islamic Society of Sarasota-Bradenton Mosque as thier 'holy man" in March of 2000, just a few months before Mohamed Atta and two other 9/11 Hijackers show up in nearby Venice Fl in June of 2000.

FOX NEWS..Congress to Probe Suspected Connection Between Anwar al-Awlaki, 9/11, Ziyad Khaleel and Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat. Osama bin Laden al-Qaeda Agents Prior to 9/11 in Sarasota Fl Were Imam Muneer Arafat And His Roommate Ziyad Khaleel. Law Enforcement Sensitive, Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa and roommate of Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat is verified as a procurement agent of Osama Bin Laden, why did Muneer Arafat get a pass. 

Muneer Arafat was the Imam at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) Mosque from early 2000 to the end of 2003, he showed up just prior to Mohamed Atta and the rest of the 9/11 terrorists in nearby Nokomis Fl. Imam Muneer Arafat quotes “I’m not opposed to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s goal of destroying Israel and replacing it with an Islamic state”. “Muslims need to stay unified, and they should support the Palestinian uprising known as the intifada.

WASHINGTON – The FBI long has contended that not one al-Qaida operative in the United States collaborated with the 19 hijackers in the Sept. 11 attacks. Yet the commission investigating the attacks has identified two Muslim men who might have had advance knowledge of the plot. 

At the Falls Church VA Dar al-Hijra Mosque, Anwar al-Awlaki the imam, introduced two of the 9/11 hijackers to a Jordanian, Eyad al Rababah, who helped them find an apartment.Eyad al-Rababah helped two of the 9/11 hijackers find an apartment and get VA drivers licenses. In its report, the 9/11 Commission described his actions and concluded, "We have insufficient basis to conclude that Rababah knew the operatives were terrorists when he assisted them." He was sentenced to six months in prison on a fraudulent drivers license charge.
 
On May 8, a Jordanian called Eyad al Rababah went to Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hanjour’s apartment to pick them up for the trip to Connecticut where he thought they may want to settle with the local Arabic-speaking community. There he says he found them with new roommates—9/11 hijackers Ahmed al Ghamdi and Majed Moqed. These two men had been sent to America to serve as muscle hijackers and had arrived at Dulles Airport on May 2. Eyad al Rababah drove Hanjour to Fairfield, Connecticut, followed by Hazmi, who had Moqed and Ghamdi in his car.

After a short stay in Connecticut, where they apparently called area flight schools and real estate agents, Eyad al Rababah drove the four to Paterson to have dinner and show them around. He says that they returned with him to Fairfield Conn. that night, and that he never saw them again. Within a few weeks, Hanjour, Hazmi, and several other operatives moved to Paterson and rented a one-room apartment. When their landlord later paid a visit, he found six men living there—Nawaf al Hazmi, now joined by his younger brother Salem, Hanjour, Moqed, probably Ahmed al Ghamdi, and Abdul Aziz al Omari; Hazmi’s old friend Khalid al Mihdhar would soon join them.

Daoud Chehazeh

Daoud Chehazeh (Syria, born 1951) his Visa expired in 2001; detained from October 1, 2001 to August 26, 2002 in USA; moved to five dfifferent detention centers over one year; no charges ever filed; released in 2002 and subsequently received political asylum.

Appeals Court to Let Judge Cite Islamic Law in Islamic Education Center Of Tampa Mosque Ruling, Mosque Director GHASSAN MANSOUR Arrested By ICE Last Month.

 
FOX NEWS....A Florida appeals court has rejected a request to block a Hillsborough judge from upholding Islamic law in a case involving the former trustees of a local Tampa mosque that has garnered the national spotlight.

The state's 2nd District Court of Appeal on Friday denied without comment a petition filed by the mosque, known as the Islamic Education Center of Tampa, which is challenging Hillsborough Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen’s ruling in March that he intended to cite “ecclesiastical Islamic law” in the case, the St. Petersburg Times reported.

The former trustees have been suing the mosque because they claim they were unfairly removed as trustees. Nielsen said in March that based on testimony, “under ecclesiastical law” and pursuant to the Koran, “Islamic brothers should attempt to resolve a dispute among themselves.”

The two parties reportedly agreed ahead of time to use an imam and Islamic Law to resolve any potential differences through arbitration. So Nielsen only referenced Islamic law in deciding whether the two parties could resolve their differences through arbitration. He ruled they could.

The arbitrator ruled in favor of the former trustees, an outcome that would give them control of $2.2 million in mosque funds if the decision is upheld, the newspaper reported, READ MORE HERE.

Lindsay Lohan's dad, Michael Lohan, Arrested and Jailed in Tampa Fl on Battery Domestic Violence Charge, No Bond, See Booking Photo.

TAMPA - The father of actress Lindsay Lohan was supposed to be at a Sarasota County court hearing today, but he might not show up because he is in jail in Tampa on domestic violence charges. Michael Lohan, 51, and his on-and-off girlfriend, Kathryn Major, 28, were scheduled for a domestic violence hearing at 2 p.m. today in front of Circuit Judge Rick De Furia in Sarasota Fl.

Kathryn Major applied for a domestic violence injunction against Lohan on Sept. 28 in Sarasota Fl, and De Furia granted a temporary injunction Monday October 24th . Early Tuesday morning, officers arrived at Major's condominium to respond to a domestic violence call. They could hear a woman yelling “stop” and “leave me alone.”

MPO C. Miller and myself responded to 2021 N. Lemans Blvd. #1411 in reference to a domestic dispute. As we approached the door, we could hear a female yelling "stop" and "leave me alone". We knocked on the door and the def (MICHAEL LOHAN) opened the door. He was wearing only shorts and was out of breath/sweating. He immediately got defensive saying "everything is ok and nothing happened here". The victim ( Kathryn Major) started yelling in the background for us to help her because he was lying. We separated the two at this time. I interviewed the victim and MPO Miller interviewed the def. The victim was crying and was afraid. She was shaking and having a hard time catching her breath. She had some redness on her arms with minor bruising on her arm and knee. I saw the victims cell phone which was smashed. I saw the victims closet which had jewelry/clothing thrown everywhere. I saw the bathroom door to have a dent consistent with the height of the def's head. Sgt. Miller responded for photographs. The def filled out a written statement which I placed into property. We looked up this injunction (Sarasota County) but weren't able to find it in the computer.


Sarasota County also couldn't advise this injunction to be current/valid. When the victim looked it up, it showed the injunction was removed on 10/24/11 for an unknown reason. She was very unhappy about this as it was supposed to be valid until the court date today. I advised her to tell the judge about this mix up when she went to court, and to let the judge know everything that happened the past two days.The def was taken into custody for domestic violence battery. He complained of chest pains so he was transported to St Joes Hospital. He was hoping this would prevent him from going to jail, and in fact signed himself out of the hospital soon after he thought the police left. After he signed himself out, he was transported to booking (JAIL).

Money Trail In Sarasota Property Flips Leads to Mortgage Bankers Who Helped Street Hustlers Like Rich Bobka, R. Craig Adams and Neil Husani


"Sarasota Fl the Mortgage Fraud Capital of the USA". The Sarasota Scammers Saga Continues with inside help provided by Mortgage Bankers for real estate street hustlers like Rich Bobka, R. Craig Adams and Neil Husani, their photos above.

Orion Bank Ex-Executive Jerry Williams Steep Fall Result of Sarasota Commercial Real Estate Scammer Neil Mohamed Husani.   According to a 44-page Federal indictment, between May 2004 and June 2006, commercial real estate scammer Neil Mohamed Husani aka Nail Husani defrauded Mortgage Bankers at Orion Bank, Mercantile Bank, Bank Atlantic, Coast Bank, Fifth/Third Bank, Wachovia Bank and First State Bank out of $82.8 Million.

Orion Bank of Naples run by CEO Jerry J. Williams was easy pickings for commercial real estate scammer Neil Mohamed Husani, they were primmed to make the ‘big deal”. Orion Bank of Naples had 4 banks in the Sarasota-Bradenton Fl area. During Florida’s real estate run-up, Orion Bank aggressively grew its commercial real estate and acquisition, development and construction lending. In 2007, Orion Bank lost $6.09 million, but issued $28 million in dividends. As the largest shareholder, CEO Jerry J. Williams received the bulk.


Orion Bank aggressively tried to get back some of the millions scammed by Neil Husani and his crew, they sued in Sarasota county court and obtained a Judgment for $14,339,738.00, but what the hell, there is no one to collect from, Neil Husani took the majority of the cash and headed to Amman Jordan where he is now living the high life and "laughing all the way to the bank" and thumbing his nose at the FBI.

 FBI most wanted flipper Neil Husani was part of a group of real estate speculators in 2003 made up of  Michael Tringali, Larry P. Nardelli and closing attorney John Yanchek. That's evident from a lawsuit filed in circuit court in Sarasota County in 2005 by Mary Jane Smith.

The suit says that Smith, who owned a beachfront home on Siesta Key, was befriended by one of Husani's associates, John D. Burke, in July 2003.The couple started a romantic relationship, and it wasn't long before Burke convinced her to sell her home, buy a new one and move in together, the suit says. Burke handled all the transactions. He sold Smith's Siesta Key house for $975,000, bought another in Silver Oaks Estates for $750,000 and put it under his name. Smith said she never saw a penny.
"As part of the closing, Burke's business associate -- Mr. Husani -- was for some reason paid $18,922. But Smith doesn't know what for," the suit says. Attorney John Yanchek and Stephanie Arnett were the two who "witnessed" the transaction. Less than a year later, Burke resold the home for $1.25 million. He then bought a house at 412 Pheasant Way on Bird Key from Husani for $875,000. It was a lucrative deal for Husani, who had bought the house the same day for $520,000.


SARASOTA October 23rd, 2011 - When Craig Adams, Rich Bobka and their associates needed fresh loans to keep their fraudulent property flipping scheme going, they had a friend on the inside. Former Washington Mutual loan officer Craig Whitehead pleaded guilty last month after federal officials charged him with wire fraud and conspiring with Adams and Bobka to provide lenders false information to get loans. 

Seventy other lending institutions — some employing executives with close ties to Adams, Bobka and others facing federal charges — provided the group with more than $300 million in loans, according to a Herald-Tribune review of more than 600 loans. Some of the bankers involved still hold key positions at local banks and are considered prominent members of the community. The Whitehead indictment raises the possibility that these individuals will face scrutiny from federal authorities in one of the largest cases of mortgage fraud in Southwest Florida history.


Law enforcement officials have contacted Sarasota mortgage banker Mark Leetzow, who referred requests for comment to his Sarasota criminal defense attorney, Stephen Walker.  Mark Leetzow previously worked at Countrywide and National City, two of the top lenders to the Adams-Bobka group, according to the Herald-Tribune's review.

To determine which banks and bankers might be questioned by federal investigators, the Herald-Tribune looked at 601 mortgages totaling $322 million provided to Adams, Bobka and their associates between 1997 and 2007. While some of those loans are likely legitimate, the list included nearly 100 that federal authorities say are fraudulent in court documents.  The indictment against Whitehead also mentions similar fraud involving Countrywide, even though Whitehead worked for Washington Mutual.

William Budd Moore, a longtime associate of Adams dating back to their days at Riverview High, helped Adams, Bobka and their associates get loans while at his own mortgage company, Moore Mortgage Group. He was later employed as a regional manager by Countrywide and National City. Mark Leetzow, Moore's onetime top assistant, followed Moore to Countrywide and National City.

Linda Martin McConnell, a former Countrywide branch manager, said Mark Leetzow was close to Bobka and other indicted members of Bobka's family. She said he was also friends with Jonathan Glucker, who was indicted in February and has pleaded guilty to being part of the conspiracy.

The Herald-Tribune identified roughly 27 Countrywide loans totaling $14.3 million given to the Adams-Bobka group while Moore and Mark Leetzow were with the company. The FBI has called more than half of them fraudulent in court documents.

After Moore and Mark Leetzow left Countrywide in early 2006, they went to work at National City Bank where Adams, Bobka and their associates received 16 loans totaling $7.3 million over the next 16 months. Before the arrival of Moore and Mark Leetzow, National City had only provided six loans to the group, totaling $1.3 million. One of the National City loans is tied to a property that became a key piece of the FBI's criminal case against the group.
