Thanks so much. Please tell your sources I will do everything in my power to protect them and their identities. In terms of the video, if I could at least see it (not necessarily air it) that would be a big first step. Do you know when this rally took place? The NYPD may have shot the rally and my sources could help dig it up.
I look forward to working with you.Best,

SEE UPDATE SPET. 4TH, 2010……..Reporter Charles Leaf Fox News 5 New York Troubled Past Includes a “Willful Physical Attack Against A Councilwoman”, a Lawsuit and Misrepresenting Himself to Get an Interview, Unprofessional Behavior.

Information from my confidential informant in lower Manhattan NY indicates that there is a video of Ground Zero Mosque developer Sharif El-Gamal at an Anti-Israeli rally in NYC yelling inflammatory statements over a bullhorn. This video supposedly will be made available in the following weeks leading up to the 9/11 anniversary on September 11th, 2010.

More from my confidential informant in lower Manhattan, it appears that the General Manager (GM) for another one of the upscale mid-town restuarants that Sharif El-Gamal had worked for (there are many) at Michael’s on West 55th Street is willing to come forward and reveal the problems he had with Sharif El-Gamal before he fired him.There are also indications that the “dealings” of Sharif El-Gamal out of the “SOHO Grand Hotel” on West Broadway were not exactly on the up and up, we are going to have to verify or “X” out this story.

From informaton obtained from 4 confidential informants in the New York City area a composite profile has surfaced on Sharif el-Gamal, his photo above.

EXCLUSIVE Sharif El-Gamal Bio, Hustling Cell Phones at The Roosevelt Field Mall in LI to Mega Real Estate Deals with Hisham Elzanaty.

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Recent photo of Sharif el-Gamal at his office SOHO Properties 552 Broadway, New York, NY, it looks like he is ready for a quick get away as he has yet to hang his framed pictures on the wall, one is still sitting on the floor, el-Gamal has been at this location for years?

From informaton obtained from 4 confidential informants in the New York City area a composite profile has surfaced on Sharif el-Gamal.  These 4 confidential informants in the New York City area are former employers, waiters, clients and classmates from a Long Island high school, information from these 4 confidential informants has been passed along to reporter Charles Leaf at My Fox News 5, New York City,  “Mosque Developer and Financial Backer” see more info click here.

Reporter Charles Leaf at My Fox News 5, New York City is providing information on “Ground Zero Mosque Developer Sharif El-Gamal from an investigation started by private investigator Bill Warner.

Sharif El-Gamal has a bizarre bio, from schooling in Long Island and in Monrovia Liberia a hot bed for Al-Qaeda activity since at least 1998.  15 years ago Sharif el-Gamal was hustling cell phones at the Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island NY, anything for a buck. During the late 1990′s and up to 2002 Sharif El-Gamal was waiting tables at Serafina’s Restaurant and Michael’s on West 55th Street in New York City and brother Sammy El-Gamal was waiting tables at Tao Restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan NY, from there they both broke into the real estate business by renting apartments on commission, they were not selling any properties at this time.There is word of a investigation that is ongoing into Sharif El-Gamal of the SOHO Properties real estate business by the NYS Division of Licensing Real Estate in Manhattan for non-payment of apartment rental deposits to customers that were supposed to be in escrow…The NYS Division of Licensing Real Estate in Manhattan will neither confirm or deny that there is a investigation into Sharif El-Gamal and SOHO Properties that started in May of 2010.Sharif el-Gamal’s guarantor’s (co-signer) on a $39 million mortgage, Hisham Elzanaty, is evidently the same person listed as having contributed $1,000 to Obama’s campaign, as well as numerous other donations to other politicians, including recently to Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a mosque supporter. Hisham Elzanaty is the owner of several medical companies run out of a building in the Bronx. East Tremont medical center is a clinic. In the reception area, there is a picture of Elzanaty proudly posing with his staff.  But as state records show, Hisham Elzanaty was ordered to repay more than $331,000. An audit showed that one of his companies was overpaid by Medicaid, see more info below.
 
Monday, November 1, 1999 Passengers aboard Flight 990 included Egyptian parents of Hisham Elzanaty. Just hours after Hisham Elzanaty, 40, of Searingtown, New York, put his parents on their plane home to Cairo Egypt, he was awakened with the news that their flight was missing.  “We spent last night together until one in the morning. They prayed for us, and we wished them a safe flight,” he said. All 217 people on the EgyptAir flight from Los Angles to Cairo are believed to have perished when the Boeing 767 fell into the Atlantic Ocean off Nantucket Island.

Below is a document that was found that is addressed to Hisham Elzanaty, 51, of the New York Neuro and Rehabilitation Center at 930 East Tremont Avenue, NY NY. The State of NY Office of the Medicaid Inspector General sent Elzanaty a letter on Nov. 9th, 2009, informing him that an audit revealed that his agency billed for unsubstantiated services in the amount of $331,336.

Children as young as 14 were being used to sell illegal and counterfeit cigarettes around the country.

01301010_1004

Governments World Wide ‘complacent’ over cigarette smuggling.

Anti-tobacco groups have accused the Government of complacency over the use of children by organised crime gangs to smuggle cigarettes into Ireland.

Ash, the Irish Cancer Society and the Irish Heart Foundation said they were shocked and outraged at the investigation aired this week by RTE’s Prime Time , which found children as young as 14 were being used to sell illegal and counterfeit cigarettes around the country.

The investigation found that the smuggled cigarettes were on sale openly in casual markets and estimated that each carton of 200 sold on the black market represented a loss of about €65 to the exchequer.

“In the Dáil yesterday, Finance Minister Brian Lenihan appears to have ruled out a tobacco price increase in the forthcoming Budget even though it would yield an estimated a badly needed €420 million to the Exchequer, without any significant impact on inflation. Instead the Minister, in a letter to us, has cited the excuse of smuggling as a reason not to increase tax on tobacco, even though there is compelling evidence to show that such an increase would deter young people from starting and encourage smokers to quit,” said Irish Cancer Society chief executive John McCormack.

Cigarettes have particular appeal to potential smugglers because taxes often account for a large share of their price (which Brack Obama in the USA has recently raised again), making them a highly profitable product to smuggle. Economic models of smuggling are used to develop techniques for measuring the extent and nature of the worldwide cigarette smuggling problem.

See my prior post, Friday, March 27, 2009, Cigarette Smugglers in St. Louis, New York City, Charlotte and Tampa Funnel Money to Terror Groups like Hezbollah.

The ICS said it was shocked by the Government’s attitude to what it described as “a major public health issue”. There are an estimated 7,000 deaths every year related to tobacco, with 1,700 people dying from lung cancer.

Chief executive of the Irish Heart Foundation Michael O’Shea said the organisation was angered by the Government’s “apparent inability” to control the smuggling of illicit tobacco products into Ireland.

“The failure by government to tackle the growth in smuggling is not a good enough reason not to protect the health of our children from cigarette smoking. This is a national disgrace,” he said.

“It is not acceptable to let criminal activity dictate social measures to protect the health of our children and young people. It is not acceptable to say there will be no increase in tobacco prices – a proven deterrent to new and existing smokers – because smuggling will increase.”

He called for the Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern to increase resources to deter smugglers through measures such as increased penalties and prosecutions.

Cigarette Smugglers in St. Louis, New York City, Charlotte and Tampa Funnel Money to Terror Groups like Hezbollah.

cigarette_smugglers-vvvvvvv
 
Cigarette smuggling is generating millions of dollars every year that can be reaching terrorist groups, including Hezbollah, Hamas and Al Qaeda, according to law enforcement sources. In a single case, $100,000 was sent to Hezbollah.
 
The first large-scale cigarette trafficking case tied to terrorism was prosecuted in North Carolina in 2002. A federal jury in Charlotte convicted Mohamad Hammoud, 28, of violating a ban on providing material support to a terrorist group by funneling profits from a multimillion-dollar cigarette-smuggling operation to Hezbollah. The jury also found Hammoud, whom prosecutors described as the leader of a terrorist cell, and his brother guilty of cigarette smuggling, racketeering and money laundering. The two men, natives of Lebanon, were accused of smuggling at least $7.9 million worth of cigarettes out of North Carolina and selling them in Michigan. Hammoud was sentenced to 155 years in prison.

According to a Federal 2008 report, citing federal and New York state law enforcement sources, nearly 70 percent of all convenience retail outlets in New York City are now Arab-owned, primarily families of Lebanese, Yemeni, Jordanian and Palestinian descent.

Cigarette trafficking is difficult to stop, partly because tobacco is a legal commodity. Smuggling cigarettes becomes a federal crime only when more than 60,000 cigarettes, or 300 cartons, are purchased to avoid payment of state tax, said Jerry Bowerman, chief of the ATF alcohol and tobacco enforcement branch.   New York law enforcement authorities announced the arrest of Queens resident Rafea al-Nablisi for smuggling 12,000 cartons of cigarettes a week. It was not the first such arrest, and thanks to New York’s latest cigarette tax hike, it will not be the last.
 
As the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said in September 2002 of New York’s cigarette smuggling, “Traditional organized crime is involved, terrorist groups are involved, and street gangs are involved.” Rivalry among these groups has resulted in numerous shootings and homicides.

The connection to terrorism is no exaggeration. When New York police cracked another smuggling ring in 2005, they uncovered a multimillion dollar flow of funds from New York City to unknown individuals in the Middle East. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly gave voice to the obvious conclusion: Terrorists probably got the money.

Just a few weeks before that 2005 bust, Buffalo-area businessman Aref Ahmed had been sentenced to three years and a month for cigarette smuggling. The feds said he’d used the racket to fund “scholarships” at terrorist training camps in Afghanistan during the spring of 2001. Going back to 1993, counterfeit cigarette stamps were found in the apartment of the first World Trade Center bombers.

Fourteen people operating a cigarette racketeering ring out of five St. Louis convenience stores to send money to Palestinian territories have been indicted on federal racketeering and related charges, the FBI and the U.S. attorney’s office said Tuesday. The Hamed Organization, comprised mostly of family members, sold stolen infant formula, computers, Global Positioning System devices and cigarettes out of its convenience stores in St. Louis City and County and used couriers to send money and jewelry to Palestinian territories, said U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway.

According to Lance Newman, Florida Department of Law Enforcement special agent in charge and, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee, RDSTF co-chairs, intelligence collected by law enforcement agencies throughout the United States indicated that the proceeds from the sale of stolen property, particularly SMUGGLED CIGARETTES and BABY FORMULA in convenience stores, have allegedly been forwarded to foreign groups associated with funding terrorist organizations (like Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which has numerous links in Tampa). 

In February 2004, the Tampa Bay RDSTF received information from the Jacksonville RDSTF that a Tampa resident, Adil Abdel Hader, 58, was allegedly involved in an organized criminal enterprise that purchased stolen cigarettes derived from “smash and grab” burglaries throughout Central Florida. Through a series of undercover operations, agents identified suspects, including Hader, who purchased stolen cigarettes at prices well below wholesale value and resold them through convenience stores whom Hader either controlled or with whom he was associated. Smuggled Cigarettes totaling approximately $45,000 in value were purchased by suspects who were told they had been stolen.

A list of suspects arrested and charges follows (these men pled out and were put on Florida State felony probation):
Abil Abdel Hader 08/19/47 Solicitation to Commit Sexual Battery Dealing in Stolen Property.

Khaldoun Khalil “Tony” Khawaja 03/28/64 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Salim Yousef Suleiman 01/14/62 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Said Ibrahim 11/24/55 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Tariq Hammad 01/01/87 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Victor Javier Reyes 11/02/77 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.

SAC Newman stated that “while we are not accusing anyone of terrorist activity, we want to send a clear message that the RDSTF is proactively looking at people and businesses that engage in activities that have historically supported groups sympathetic to terrorist organizations.”
