TWO OF A KIND: Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat, 58, and 9/11 Boss Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), 56, born in Kuwait City in early 1960's both were members of the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization at the same time during the late 1970's and early 1980's. KSM joined the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood in 1980. KSM was the son of an Imam, KSM had been a member of the Islamic group Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood since he was 16 or 17. Muneer Arafat has admitted under oath in the Sami Al Arian terror support trial in Tampa Fl that he was a member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Muneer Arafat's conduct, associations, and background has given rise to questions concerning his ties to terrorist individuals or groups whose chief purpose is the overthrow of our government and the destruction of Israel.
Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat, the former roommate of Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa in Manchester MO and East St Louis IL. Muneer Arafat is a Palestinian who was born in Kuwait City. 'You don't live with an al-Qaeda agent like Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa prior to 9/11 unless you are al-Qaeda, Imam Muneer Arafat"! Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was born on May 10th, 1963 in Kuwait City. Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel, 57, who had Palestinian parents, was born in Kuwait City on June 23rd, 1964. 9/11 boss Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), 56, was born in Kuwait City on April 14, 1965 (according to Red Cross records). Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel was a member of the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood along with Muneer Arafat and 9/11 boss Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) at the same time, one big happy terrorist clan. Imam Muneer Arafat came to Sarasota and the ISSB in March of 2000 after being banned in St Louis for preaching Jihad!
were al-Qaeda operatives Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi in Sarasota
on the day the USS Cole was attacked in Yemen by other al-Qaeda
operatives on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) at 11:18 am? These
two bastards, these two monsters Atta and al-Shehhi were in the Sahara
Cafe on the Tamiami Trl in Sarasota celebrating the murder of 17
U.S. Navy sailors and 37 severely injured U.S. Navy sailors on the USS
Cole, knowing full well that they had bigger plans for America on 9/11.
Did Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi meet with Sarasota Imam Muneer
Arafat on Oct 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) at the Sahara Cafe? Muneer
Arafat's roommate on Oct 12th, 2000 was the head cook at the Sahara
Columbus Day was originally observed every October 12th since 1892 in the United States. Christopher Columbus intended to chart a western sea route to China, India and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia. Instead, on October 12, 1492, he landed in the Bahamas, becoming the first European to explore America. In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison issued a proclamation encouraging Americans to mark the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ voyage on October 12th every year. Anniversaries are important in al-Qaeda terrorist attacks, al-Qaeda terrorists associated Oct 12th with the discovery of America by a sailor, thus the attack on the sailors on the USS Cole on Oct 12th, 2000.
On Thursday October 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi are at Sahara Cafe 1121 S Tamiami Trail, Sarasota Fl where they meet someone, they use SunTrust Visa card 4011-8008-4050-7778 to pay the tab of $23.43 for their food and drinks, as seen above in FBI 9/11 hijackers timeline. Apparently the use of the Mohamed Atta - Marwan al-Shehhi credit card at the Sahara Cafe is a mistake and draws attention to the cafe. On Oct 12th, 2000 Khalid Suliman the roommate of al-Qaeda linked Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat is/was the main cook at the Sahara Cafe. "Sahara Cafe serving Sarasota fresh & delicious Mediterranean food since 1998, incorporated in 2002". In Oct 2000 Imam Muneer Arafat was listed at a condo complex called Bella Villino 4130 Central Sarasota Parkway Sarasota Fl, so was Sahara Cafe cook Khalid Suliman. Possibly Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat and Abdulaziz al-Hijji met Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 at the Sahara Cafe. This is the only instance where Atta and al-Shehhi use their Suntrust credit card at Sahara Cafe in Sarasota Fl, this does not discount the use of cash for other meetings or other meetings paid for by Abdulaziz al-Hijji.
Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 (Columbus Day) the same day al-Qaeda
terrorists Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi show up at the Sahara Cafe
in Sarasota, the USS Cole is attacked by al-Qaeda suicide terrorists at
11:18 am EST in the port of Aden Yemen. Seventeen U.S. Navy sailors were killed and thirty-seven injured. The Sahara Cafe is open from 12 noon to 2:00 am daily, Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi would have been in the Sahara Cafe after the USS Cole was the target of a suicide bombing at 11:18 am EST on Oct 12th 2000. Thursday Oct 12th, 2000 is now
a day of celebration for al-Qaeda terrorists and many radical Muslims.
Most likely al-Qaeda terrorists Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi had
foreknowledge of the USS Cole attack on Thursday Oct 12th, 2000
(Columbus Day). In Jan 2000 the CIA failed to put one of the 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar on a watch list, he had been filmed
at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur to plot the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen on Oct 12th, 2000.
United States of America v. Sulaiman Abu Gaiyth: Al-Qaeda terrorist Sulaiman Abu Ghaith aka Sulaiman Abu Gaiyth, 56, the son-in-law of Osama bin-Laden, was a member of Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait at same time as Imam Muneer Arafat, 58, Ziyad Khaleel, 57 and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), 56. This gang of 4 Kuwaiti's all end up top guys in Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda in one way or another. Kuwaiti Imam Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, 56, born December 14, 1965 in Kuwait City. Muneer Arafat, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), Abu Ghaith and Ziyad Khaleel are about the same age, 56 to 58. Abu Ghaith was a high school teacher and preacher at a mosque in Kuwait. He fought in Afghanistan, accused the U.S. government of killing children in Iraq through UN sanctions, and joined Muslim guerillas fighting in Bosnia -Herzegovina in the summer of 1994. In the late 1990s, the government banned Abu Ghaith from the mosque where he was preaching because he strayed from officially approved religious themes and preached Jihad. While Abu Ghaith lived in Kuwait before September 11, 2001, his mission was to recruit elements for training in bin Laden’s terror camps in Afghanistan. According to documents in the unclassified dossier from Abdull Mohssin Al Zamil's Combatant Status Review Tribunal, Kuwaiti Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was also a founder of Al Wafa al Igatha al Islamia aka 'Wafa Humanitarian Organisation', a charity that the USA asserts provided a front for al Qaeda's fund-raising efforts. Wafa was a component of Al-Qaeda (QE.A.4.01) in 2001. The WAFA Humanitarian Organization is a key Saudi charity and Pakistan-based organization financing al Qaeda. WAFA was a militant supporter of the Taliban. Documents found in WAFA’s offices in Afghanistan revealed that the charity was intimately involved in assassination plots against U.S. citizens as well as the distribution of “how to” manuals on chemical and biological warfare. U.S. officials have described WAFA as a key component of bin Laden’s organization. The well-endowed Saudi Arabian charity supporting al-Qaeda is the Saudi al-Wafa Humanitarian Organization initial address Jordan House No. 125, Street 54, Phase II Hayatabad, Peshawar, Pakistan. al-Wafa headquarters was in Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2001. This NGO was one of only two organizations quoted in the 9/11 investigation. One of the allegations against Abdull Mohssin Al Zamil, who was also accused of being a founder of al Wafa, was that he helped Abu Ghaith's family leave Afghanistan around the time of the attacks of 9-11. According to 2004 court testimony posted by AP, Kuwaiti Imam Abu Ghaith founded Al Wafa, the "humanitarian organization" sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council for its ties to al-Qaeda.
Kuwaiti BFF's Muneer Arafat and Zihad Khaleel end up as roommates in the East St Louis IL area in 1996-1997 and then again in 1999. Muneer Arafat, 58, left Kuwait City in 1981 when he was 18 for college in the USA, so did Ziyad Khaleel, 57, and so did KSM, 56. 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) was born in Kuwait City, he is of Pakistani parents. KSM was born on April 14, 1965 according to information provided to the Red Cross during his trial in Gitmo. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) left Kuwait City for the USA in 1983 to go to Chowan College (now Chowan University) in Murfreesboro, NC.
1980: KSM joins Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood when he was, 16, following his brother Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh, who had become student leader for the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood at Kuwait University (hot bed for terrorism). Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh is the older brother of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM). KSM attends training camps and studies the anti-Western, anti-modernity teachings of Islamist theorist Sayyid Qutb. Zahid is reported to have collaborated with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in planning Operation Bojinka, a 1995 plan to hijack 12 airplanes over the Pacific. Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh is also reported to have shifted careers to the direction of non-governmental organizations that 'provided aid' to refugees, fronts for support of terrorism. KSM, visiting Pakistan for the first time in early 1987, traveled to Peshawar where his brother Zahid introduced him to the famous Afghan mujahid Abdul Rasul Sayyaf, head of the Hizbul-Ittihad El-Islami (Islamic Union Party).
Zahid Al-Sheikh Mohammed (ZSM) aka Zahid Al-Sheikh al-Qaeda boss and front man: Jelazee Refugee Camp was a terror training camp in Pakistan, near the Afghanistan border. American intelligence analysts alleged, during the Administrative Review Board hearing of Guantanamo detainee Adel Hassan Hamad, that the camp was directed by Zahid al-Sheikh Mohammed (ZSM), an older brother of senior al Qaeda planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) aka Zahid Al-Sheikh. American analysts allege that Zahid Al-Sheikh was also an extremist with ties to terrorism, al-Qaeda. Mercy International, the charity Zahid Sheikh Mohammed helped run, funded Al-Qaeda. Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh, the brother of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), works as the head of the Pakistani branch of the charity Mercy International in 1988. Mercy International founded in Canada in 1980 as a subsidiary of the Muslim Brotherhood and Incorporated in the State of Michigan in 1989. Several humanitarian organizations such as the Mercy International Relief Organization (Mercy), played central roles in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Africa. At the New York trial of four men convicted of involvement in the US embassy attacks, a former al-Qa'ida member named several charities as fronts for the terrorist group, including Mercy. Documents presented at the NY trial demonstrated that Mercy smuggled weapons from Somalia into Kenya, and Abdullah Muhammad, one of the Nairobi bombers, delivered eight boxes of convicted al-Qa'ida operative Wadi al-Haji's belongings--including false documents and passports--to Mercy's Kenya office. Kuwaiti Ziyad Khaleel, the former roommate of Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat, purchased the satellite phone and shipped the satellite phone used by Osama bin Laden to coordinate the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Africa, small world, eh?
Sulaiman Abu Ghaith aka Sulaiman Abu Gaiyth, 56, the son-in-law of Osama bin-Laden, was a member of Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait at same time as Muneer Arafat, 58, Ziyad Khaleel, 57, Zahid Sheikh Mohammed and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), 56. Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh the older brother of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), works as the head of the Pakistani branch of Mercy International a front for financial support of Al-Qaeda. Mercy International (MI) originally went by the name Human Concern International (HCI), Mumtaz Akhtar was the chairman of the board of Human Concern International in 1988. Its purpose at that time was to support the Afghan jihad against the Soviet Union, and to help Afghans who had fled the war in their homeland and taken up residence in Pakistan. In 1989, HCI changed its name to Mercy International-USA (MI) and established its new headquarters in Michigan, USA. The organization also maintained branch offices in such far-flung locations as Albania, Bosnia, Canada, Kenya, Dublin, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Switzerland. Some of these regional chapters had names that differed slightly from one another; e.g., the Canadian branch was known as the Mercy International Relief Agency. Sheikh Safar al-Hawali, a Saudi Arabian who is listed as a director of the Dublin branch of Mercy International, is an Islamic fundamentalist and scholar and author of The Day of Wrath, which asks if the Intifada (holy war) is "only the beginning". In MI's earliest days its Pakistan chapter was headed by Ahmed Khadr, a close associate of Osama bin Laden. Khadr was succeeded in this post in 1988 by Kuwaiti Zahid Sheikh Mohammed (ZSM) aka Zahid Al-Sheikh, the older brother of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
1983: KSM, chosen by his older brother Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh, is sent to Chowan College in Murfreesboro, North Carolina. It is likely KSM was harassed and bullied by American students. KSM transfers to North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University in Greensboro to study mechanical engineering.
1986: KSM Graduates with an engineering degree and returns to Kuwait City, Kuwait. His former high school teacher, Sheikh Ahmed Dabbous, would later tell New Yorker journalist Terry McDermott that KSM returned home radically changed, harboring a stalwart belief that Americans were depraved bigots who hated Islam.
1993 World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef’s real name was Abdul Basit Mahmoud Abdul Karim, an ethnic Pakistani born and raised in Kuwait City, Kuwait, educated in Wales, with a specialty in electronics. Ramzi Yousef born April 27, 1968 was the nephew of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed also born in Kuwait City Kuwait. Ramzi Yousef was a member of Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood.
Oct 10, 2002 KUWAIT AL-QAEDA TERRORISM INCUBATOR. Two Kuwaiti men — Anas al-Kandari, 21, and his 26-year-old cousin, Jassem al-Hajiri — opened fire Tuesday from a pickup truck on Marines engaged in urban assault training on Failaka, an island 10 miles east of Kuwait City, killing one Marine Lance Cpl. Antonio J. Sledd, 20, of Tampa, Fla and injuring a second. Several Kuwaitis have been tied to Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. Most notably, Al Qaeda spokesman Sulaiman Abu Ghaith who is married to one of Osama bin Laden's daughters he was stripped of his Kuwaiti citizenship in October 2001, and Kuwaiti-born Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), the Sept. 11 mastermind and his Kuwaiti-born nephew Ramzi Yousef the 1993 WTC bobmber.
9/11 boss Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, 56, Imam Muneer Arafat, 58, terrorist Ziyad Khaleel, 57 and terrorist Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, 56, were all members of Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood at same time in Kuwait City during 1980's, they are all about the exact same age, 56 to 58! Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, who was an al-Qaeda spokesman after 9/11, has been sentenced to life in prison at Super Max ADX Florence in September 2014 for terrorism-related charges at a trial in New York. Kuwaiti Imam Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, 56, born December 14, 1965 in Kuwait City is the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on US soil since the attacks and convicted.
In June 2000, Imam Sulaiman Abu Ghaith left Kuwait for Afghanistan, where he met Osama bin Laden and joined his al-Qaeda organization. Sulaiman Abu Ghaith attended al Qaeda's airport training camp with Anas al Kandari and Faiz al Kandar the two Kuwaiti's that killed Marine Lance Cpl. Antonio J. Sledd of Tampa. Kuwaiti Imam Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was captured in Jordan in 2013, and brought to the US. In March 2014, a jury found Sulaiman Abu Ghaith guilty of conspiracy to kill Americans and aiding al-Qaeda. Kuwaiti Imam Sulaiman Abu Ghaith the al Qaeda spokesman admitted to FBI agents that he knew Fayiz al Kandari, a Kuwaiti who is detained at Gitmo. Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, 56, was a long time member of the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood during the same time frame as 9/11 boss Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, 56, Imam Muneer Arafat, 58, and his sidekick Ziyad Khaleel, 57, they are all about the same age and they were all born in Kuwait between 1963 and 1965. Small word, eh? "There ain't no coincidences in terrorism".
CNN March 2014, KSM LIES TO PROTECT KUWAITI IMAM: The admitted mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks has issued a rambling defense of Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, on trial in New York for allegedly being al Qaeda’s propagandist in the wake of the attacks. In a rare statement made public, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, 56, said Sulaiman abu Ghaith, 56, (both KSM and abu Ghaith born in Kuwait and members of Kuwaiti Muslim brotherhood at same time) an Islamic preacher whom the United States has charged with conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals and providing material support to terrorists – is falsely accused of being involved in al Qaeda’s military activities. Mohammed said abu Ghaith was more of a visiting celebrity who preached the Quran to al Qaeda recruits, (BULL CRAP they are pals, BFF's).
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) August 2013— Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has fired the director of an Islamic TV channel for his role as the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait. He wrote Sunday on his Twitter account that he sacked Imam Tarek Al-Suwaidan "for admitting he belongs to the Kuwait Brotherhood terrorist movement." Al-Suwaidan, a Kuwaiti, was the director general of Al-Resalah channel, which belongs to Alwaleed's Rotana Group — a large pan-Arab media conglomerate based in Riyadh. Kuwait has been vulnerable to extremist ideology promulgated by its domestic Muslim Brotherhood arm, and to terrorist attacks perpetrated by nationalist Palestinian, Shiite, and Sunni fundamentalist groups—including the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Tampa's Osama Sam Mustafa who links to the 9/11 hijackers in San Diego, is a high ranking member of the PFLP, he is currently in prison doing 20 years. Prominent Kuwaiti cleric, Imam Hamid al-Ali, regularly comments on a variety of social and political subjects, and is believed to heavily influence Muslim opinion. He has issued fatwas approving suicide bombings and the attack tactic of crashing airplanes into buildings. Ali was designated as a terrorist by the U.S. Department of the Treasury in December 2006 for providing financial support to al-Qaeda-affiliated groups “seeking to commit acts of terrorism in Kuwait, Iraq, and elsewhere.”
So BFF's, Al-Qaeda 9/11 boss Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, 56, and Al-Qaeda procurement agent Ziyad Khaleel, 57, Imam Sulaiman abu Ghaith aka “Abu Ghayth”, 56, and Imam Muneer Arafat, 58, were all born in Kuwait City, Kuwait during the same time period, they all grew up together, same mosques, same schools, they were all members of the Kuwait Islamic Brotherhood as teenagers, they all migrated to different Universities in America (except Abu Ghayth) at about the same time, and they were all part of Al-Qaeda in one way or another. Jihad preaching Imam Muneer Arafat was hired to be the Imam at the Sarasota Mosque in March 2000, just 4 months before Mohamed Atta and two other Al-Qaeda 9/11 terror pilots showed up, small word, eh? "There ain't no coincidences in terrorism".
Muneer Arafat, 58, Ziyad Khaleel, 57, and KSM, 56. are all about the same age, 56-58, and they all lived in Kuwait City at the same time from 1963 to 1983. It appears that Muneer Arafat, Ziyad Khaleel and KSM were all members of the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood in the same time period, late 1970's and early 1980. The Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood's Lajnat al-Daawa al- Islamiya (Islamic Call Committee) was designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States Government. Muner Arafat has been verified as to belonging to Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood's Lajnat al-Daawa al- Islamiya (Islamic Call Committee). Prior to his birth, Khalid S. Mohammed’s parents immigrated to Kuwait from Pakistan’s Balochistan province.
Badawiya Kuwait, the neighborhood where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) grew up, sits between the sand and the sea on the southernmost edge of Fahaheel, a suburb of Kuwait City. Mohammed’s parents moved to Kuwait from Pakistan in the nineteen-fifties, at the beginning of the country’s oil boom. His father, his father’s brother, and their young families came together; the brothers, both religious men, had been recruited to head mosques. Mohammed’s father became the imam in Ahmadi. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, according to the information he provided to the Red Cross, was born on April 14, 1965. KSM was rebellious in secondary school Kuwait; he told interrogators that he and his nephew Abdul Basit Abdul Karim (later internationally known as Ramzi Yousef, the man behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center) once tore down the Kuwaiti flag from atop their schoolhouse. KSM was raised in Kuwait, attending public high school there, and he became a member of the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood as a teenager (16) in 1980, so did Muneer Arafat and Ziyad Khaleel. 9/11 terrorist financier Ammar al-Baluchi was born in Kuwait City, Kuwait, August 29, 1977, and is the maternal nephew of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed organizer of the 9/11 attacks and cousin of Ramzi Yousef, the organizer of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The al-Baluchi family moved to Kuwait in the 1960s when/where KSM was born. 9/11 terrorist financier Ammar al-Baluchi had been "groomed since boyhood" by his cousins and uncles "to join their clandestine war against America.
The Kuwaiti Brotherhood has ties to several high ranking, prominent extremists, including notorious 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Kuwaiti television personality Tariq al-Suwaidan, listed by U.S. federal prosecutors in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a U.S. terrorist financing trial. According to reports. The Kuwaiti Brotherhood is represented by Tariq al-Suwaidan, date of birth November 1st 1953, a controversial Muslim Imam implicated in a U.S. terrorism financing case. In May 2007, U.S. federal prosecutors named Suwaidan as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, convicted of financing Hamas, Muneer Arafat and Ziyad Khaleel were fund raisers for Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. Radical Kuwaiti Imam Tariq Al-Suwaidan was trained in the classical Islamic sciences in his youth and lived and studied in the United States from the age of 17 in 1970 and remained for in the US for 20 years. He graduated from high school and received a BS in petroleum and natural gas engineering from Penn State University in 1975. He is a long time member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) joined the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood at the age of 16 in Kuwait before joining al-Qaeda
in the late 1990s. KSM’s brother Zahid Sheikh Mohammed aka Zahid Al-Sheikh, once head of the Kuwaiti chapter of
the Brotherhood, is believed to have financed KSM for years. The first iteration of the Kuwaiti Brotherhood, the “Islamic Guidance
Society,” was formed in 1952 by Abd al-Aziz al-Mutawwa, an associate of
Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.
In 1961, following Kuwait’s declaration of independence from Britain,
the group rebranded to the “Social Reform Society,” or SRS.
The SRS maintained formal organizational links with the Egyptian Brotherhood until 1991. Kazakh government has claimed that the Kuwaiti Brotherhood’s charity
arm, the SRS, has financed terrorist activities and engaged in “armed
jihad.” According to a press release from the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs (IMAMS), Endowments, Call and Guidance, Prince Dr. Bandar bin Salman bin Mohammed Al-Saud was identified as the Head of (Islamic) Call Committee in Africa. Kuwait Lajnat Al Daawa Al Islamiyya (a.k.a. Islamic Call Committee; a.k.a. Lajna Aldawa terrorist organization. In the 2000s, Kuwait-based individuals and institutions supported and financed al-Qaeda and al-Qaeda-affiliated groups. "No coincidences in terrorism" as Sarasota FBI agent Thomas Baugher told me on several occasions during meetings at the Sarasota Police Dept Intel Unit with Detective James LaPlante in 2002 and 2003.
FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT INVESTIGATIVE REPORT, Case Number: FM-48-0040 Serial #:228
Author : McAllister, Scott F. Office: Ft. Myers
Activity Start Date: Dec 08, 2003 Activity End Date: Dec 09, 2003
Description: Source Debrief on HAMMOUD/ARAFAT
On 8 DEC 2003, Special Agent Scott McAllister (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) along with Special Agent Tom Baugher (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and Detective James LaPlante (Sarasota City Police Department) interviewed a confidential informant, under control of the Detroit office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. According to a FDLE report of December 8, 2003 given by Sarasota FBI agent Thomas Baugher, The source (CI) spoke to Muneer ARAFAT as the Imam of the local Sarasota Mosque and that Muneer ARAFAT was a member of the Kuwaiti Islamic Brotherhood in Kuwait same time as 9/11 head of operations KSM. Muneer ARAFAT follows a radical belief and teachings of Saudi grand Mufti ALBAZ, and wishes harm to the United States”.
On 20 FEB 2004, FDLE Special Agent Scott McAllister and FBI Special Agent Tom Baugher interviewed an individual ("Source"- Muneer Arafat) who has agreed to testify at trial, who provided the following information: From 11/23/04 until 1/21/05 Source (Muneer Arafat) was in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) attempting to raise money for the Islamic Center of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB). The ISSB requested that Source (Muneer Arafat) travel to raise money for a new mosque that they hope to build in Sarasota. For his efforts, Source (Muneer Arafat) was promised 20% of all monies raised. Source's plane ticket cost $1,800 and the ISSB paid half of this amount. Khalid Suliman moved out of Source's (Muneer Arafat) house in September 2003 and is slowly paying back the money he owes Source (Muneer Arafat). Muneer Arafat was listed at 4130 Central Sarasota Pkwy, Sarasota, Fl, so was Khalied Suliman. Khalied Suliman was the main cook at Sahara Cafe restaurant where Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi met on Oct 12, 2000. Khalied Suliman also worked as a detailer at Gulf Coast Auto Sarasota. Source (Muneer Arafat) has an offer from the Boca Raton Islamic Center, P.O. Box 3364, Boca Raton, Florida to be the Imam and principal of the elementary school. Source's (Muneer Arafat) salary would be $3,000 per month in 2005. None of that is on Muneer Arafat's current online resume.
Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat had direct ties to a Al-Qeada agent Ziyad Khaleel (roommate) prior his to arrival in Sarasota in March 2000, just 3 months prior to Mohamed Atta and 2 other 9/11 hijack pilots arrival in July 2000. Ziyad Khaleel, also known as Khalil Ziyad, Ziyad Sadaqa, and Ziyad Abdulrahman, was a Palestinian al-Qaeda member born in Kuwait, based in the United States, primarily in Colorado, Florida, Michigan and Missouri.
Ziyad Khaleel, also known as Khalil Ziyad, and Ziyad Sadaqa had been identified as a “procurement agent” for Osama bin Laden, arranging the purchase and delivery of “computers, satellite telephones, and covert surveillance equipment” for the leadership of al-Qaeda, as well as administering a number of radical Islamic websites as webmaster, including the website of the terrorist group Hamas. Ziyad Khaleel was also directly linked to Imam Anwar al-Awlaki who assisted the two 9/11 hijackers in San Diego and then again in Falls Church VA.
Muneer Arafat was arrested in Sarasota Fl on November 22nd 2002 and sent to face a Grand Jury investigation into his ties to terrorism in St Louis. Muneer Arafat was not in Brooklyn or the NYC area in November 2002 as he indicates in his online resume. Imam Muneer Arafat's arrest by the FBI and ICE was not made public in the Sarasota area. There was no TV or Newspaper stories of Sarasota Muneer Arafat's arrest in Novemeber 2002.
Muneer Arafat was in the Jennings City Jail 5445 Jennings Station Rd, St. Louis, MO from November 22nd till December 18th, 2002 on a HOLD by US Marshals until he testified before the St Louis Federal Grand Jury concerning his ties to terrorism and his al-Qaeda procurement agent roommate Ziyad Khaleel. Muneer Arafat and Ziyad khaleel grew up together in Kuwait City they are about the same age and childhood friends. Muneer Arafat's arrest was Federal that's why he is still listed on the Federal Bureau of Prison website.
When Muneer Arafat returned to Sarasota on/or about December 20th 2002, see photo above, after spending 30 days in the Jennings City Jail, it appears the FBI flipped him (he and his wife faced deportation) and he supposedly was working for them. Muneer Arafat was wearing a wire for the FBI and was involved in a FBI terrorism investigation from December 2002 to end of 2003 in Sarasota Fl. Imam Muneer Arafat bragged about working for the FBI and made public his activity in Sarasota from December 2002 to end of 2003 when he was called as a witness in the Sami Al-Arain terrorism trial in Tampa. Imam Muneer Arafat told the court he was working as a confidential informant (snitch) for the FBI and they paid him $35,000 for his efforts in a unspecified case in Sarasota Fl. The only Sarasota FBI terrorism investigation I am aware of that took place in 2002 involved Abdulaziz and Anoud al-Hijji who just happened to have attended the same Mosque where the Imam was Muneer Arafat from March 2000 to Feb 2004 and it became known that Arafat later worked for the FBI as an undercover CI wearing a wire in late 2002 through 2003.

Dr Rich Swier writes: Fast forward to Sept 16, 2016 and we find Sheikh Monzer Taleb, someone with links to the terrorist group HAMAS, sitting with Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton mosque leaders for a fundraiser in support of the organization Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD). The Islamic Society of Sarasota published the attendees list for the event. The list included: Speaker Ali Syed, Speaker Imam Monzer Talilb, Speaker Suleiman Salem, Speaker Tariq AbuKhdeir and Poetry by Remi Kanazi. Monzer Taleb was an unindicted Co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, identified by Federal prosecutors as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a covert U.S. MB organization with a responsibility for supporting and financing Hamas.

Congressman Pompeo, a member of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee says Sheikh Taleb pledged his allegiance to a terrorist organization. "Sheikh Monzer Taleb has been very clear personally in the things that he has said that he was a part of Hamas," said Pompeo. "That the destruction of Israel is something that he would like to see happen and he has made no bones about it." Sheikh Taleb has proudly sung as part of a pro-Hamas group that calls for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people, even declaring on video: “I am from Hamas.” His other extremist ties are also significant and damning: In the 2008 terrorism-financing case against the Holy Land Foundation, Taleb was named an “unindicted co-conspirator” for his deep association with Hamas. The case resulted in guilty verdicts on all 108 counts against leaders of the Foundation.
