The local newspaper in Sarasota Fl published an article yesterday about the new 'Imam" at the Islamic Center of Sarasota and Bradenton pandering to a Mosque that has hosted convicted terrorists like Sami al-Arian and hired an Imam in 2000 who was the roommate of Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel. The Herald Tribune called their puff piece "The Face of Islam in Southwest Florida", and gushed over the new Imam, a guy who uses the name 'Yousuf Memon' aka 'Brother Yousuf' a 24 year old from Buffalo NY who no online presence and very little is known about his background. Memon, who prefers to be called “Brother Yousuf,” was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, where he attended an Islamic school that taught him theology, translations, the meaning of scriptures and their appropriate context. In Buffalo there is a Muslim Seminary called Darul Uloom Al-Madania that graduates would be Imams, it is run by Mohammed Memon and his father Ismail Memon. One of the graduates of the Darul Uloom Al-Madania, Imam Izhar Khan, 24 years old,was indicted in the Southern District of Florida on charges of providing financing and other material support to the Pakistani Taliban.
The real face of Islam in Southwest Florida is Al-Qaeda linked Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat at the Islamic Center of Sarasota and Bradenton.
Muneer Arafat came to the Islamic Center of Sarasota and Bradenton in March of 2000 from the St Louis area where he had been banned from the Grand Mosque for preachjng Jihad, Mohamed Atta and other 9/11 Hijackers followed him to the Sarasota area in June of 2000. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat’s prior roommate in Columbia MO, Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel, purchased and shipped a satellite phone for Osama bin Laden to be used in the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Africa. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat says during the Sami Al-Arian trial that Al-Arian tried to recruit him into a faction of Palestinian Islamic Jihad in 1988 but he was already a Islamic Jihad terror member with the Tamimi Faction. Muneer Arafat lied about being an US citizen, solicited funds for the Hamas terror organization, was arrested by the Feds in November 2002 in Sarasota and put in front of a St Louis Grand Jury investigating Terror Ties in the USA and worked for the FBI as a paid confidential informant on an international stolen car scam in Sarasota Fl during 2002 to 2004, a very busy boy who should have testified in front of the 9/11 Commission, but did not.
