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.
MEANWHILE: Buffalo NY Islamic School Principal Mohammed Memon Ousted over Sex Allegations. Mohammed Memon, a 47-year-old married father of seven who has helped run the ISLAMIC school since 1991 with his father, the school’s founder Ismail Memon. Darul Uloom Al-Madania is a private Islamic Seminary in Buffalo, New York that is devoted to producing Islamic scholars and Huffaz. Dr. Khalid J. Qazi, president of the local chapter of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, expressed disappointment over Memon’s “inappropriate and intimate relationship.” “Parents have trusted their best assets, their children, to Imam Ibrahim Memon, and he has broken that trust,” Qazi said. Memon denies marrying or engaging in physical contact with Khan. He claimed to The Buffalo News only to have listened to Khan’s problems over the telephone when he should have referred her to her father. However, Qazi said Memon signed an agreement admitting “intimate, clandestine and highly inappropriate” relations with Khan from August 2006 to July 2008. Memon did so at an Aug. 17 meeting organized by local Islamic leaders and Khan’s family. It was held in Johnson City, west of Binghamton, to accommodate three school donors. A former Madania student, who wished to remain anonymous, also told The News she had a relationship with Memon several years ago as a student. Days after accepting his marriage proposal, she said, Memon told her he married them both in front of two witnesses she came to believe never existed.
AND ALSO, A GRADUATE OF DARUL-ULOOM AL-MADANIA BUFFALO CHARGED WITH SUPPORT OF TERRORISM: Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan, 76, was arrested Saturday May 14th, 2011 at the Miami Mosque, also known as the Flagler Mosque.

They have been indicted in the Southern District of Florida on charges of providing financing and other material support to the Pakistani Taliban, a designated foreign terrorist organization. Imam Izhar Khan graduated in Islamic Studies and Hifz-e-Quran from Darul-Uloom Al-Madania in Buffalo, New York, the largest and oldest Darul-Uloom in the North East, he is the current Imam at the Jamaat Al-Mu’mineen Mosque in Margate Fl.
