Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat Linked to Al-Qaeda Agents in USA Prior to 9/11 Turned FBI Informant Appears to be Now In the Federal Witness Protection Program, WTH?

Saturday August 17th, 2013

Is FBI Rat, Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat, now in the Federal Witness Protection Program, where’s Muneer?  Muneer Kazem Arafat was the Imam at the Sarasota Fl Mosque in March 2000 and then the Boca Raton Fl Mosque in late 2003, Muneer Arafat was born in Kuwait, the family eventually moved to Jordan. Muneer Arafat claims he is a Jordanian born in Kuwait of Palestinian decent and not related to Yasser Arafat. Muneer Kazem Arafat arrived in the USA during 1988 and immediately was involved with assorted terrorists including Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa.

Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat says Samia Al-Arian tried to recruit him into a faction of Palestinian Islamic Jihad in 1988 but he was already a PIJ terror member with the Tamimi faction, Arafat also lied about being a US citizen, was the roommate of an al-Qaeda terrorist, solicited funds for terror organizations and worked for the FBI as a paid confidential informant in Sarasota Fl.  Muneer Arafat, 47, said he had spent months and months talking to a Sarasota suspect in another case (used car scam shipped to Middle East) at the request of the FBI, which collected much of the evidence in the Al-Arian case, Muneer Arafat was paid $35,000 by the FBI. Under oath, Muneer Arafat admitted that he was a member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist rganization. Muneer Arafat’s faction of the PIJ, which he called “part of Al Jihad Al Islamia,” was the Tamimi faction, he said.  In the summer of 2002, according to Muneer Arafat’s testimony, he saw Al-Arian when he “came to Tampa to give condolences for the death of Al-Arian’s father.” Muneer Arafat said that Al-Arian said something at that meeting about “operations,” which Arafat believed, from experience, was code for “terror attacks” by the PIJ in Israel.

Muneer Arafat was the Imam at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) Mosque from early 2000 to the end of 2003, at the time it was a little wood frame house on N. Lockwood Ridge Rd, he showed up just prior to Mohamed Atta and the rest of the 9/11 terrorists in nearby Nokomis Fl in June 2000. 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”. Muneer Arafat had a roommate and associate by the name of Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa in Columbia MO prior to Muneer Arafat’s March 2000 arrival in Sarasota Fl.  Mohamed Atta and several other 9/11 Hijackers arrive in the Venice-Sarasota Fl area in June 2000. Imam Muneer Arafat has advocated suicide bombers in his sermons, see one such given at the Islamic Institute of Orange County; Dec. 23, 2005 Sh. Muneer Arafat – Friday khutbah 31 minutes 5.24 MB. 

“Muneer Arafat who for years was a vocal cheerleader for suicide bombings and had the reputation as a traveling Jihadi Imam ends up in Sarasota Fl in March 2000 just prior to Mohamed Atta and several other 9/11 Hijackers”.  In St. Louis, 1996 to 2000, Muneer Arafat became a well-known lecturer at different Masjids and built up quite a following. He gave lectures at local mosques that almost exclusively focused on jihad week in and week out and this got him into trouble with Sheikh Muhammad Nur of the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis who at one point banned him from giving lectures at the Gateway Masjid.

At another local St. Louis Masjid where Muneer Arafat used to give lectures he gave a wild-eyed and enthusiastic support of suicide bombings during a lecture in response to a lecture condemning suicide bombings by a local St. Louisan who had studied at the Islamic University of Medina, Report by Umar Lee who knew Muneer Arafat while in St. Louis; Posted: 8/4/2005 11:37:20 AM .
 Muneer Arafat, 50, the Sarasota Imam and Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel’s prior roommate was arrested by the FBI on Nov 22nd 2002 in Sarasota Fl (6 days after I took the surveillance photo of his vehicle in Sarasota, seen above) for over staying his visa on immigration charges, the FBI shipped Muneer Arafat back to St Louis MO to face a Grand Jury.  Muneer Arafat had registered his 2000 Isuzu Trooper SUV in East St. Louis IL and was driving around Sarasota Fl with Illinois plates.

By December 20, 2002 someone had paid Muneer Arafat’s bond in St Louis (or the FBI flipped him) and he was back in Sarasota Fl, see surveillance photo above. Ziyad Helmi Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa was at the Univ. of Missouri and was a roommate of Muneer Arafat in the St. Louis MO area during 1996 to 1999. Public records show U.S. addresses for Khaleel going back to 1993 in Columbia, Michigan and ORLANDO Florida.

Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa purchased a $7,500.00 satellite phone and 400 min. of time and had it sent to Osama bin-Laden for use in the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.  Ziyad Sadaqa AKA Ziyad Khaleel purchased the satellite phone (in Columbia, MO) for Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights in Saudi Arabia and shipped the phone to Khalid al-Fawwaz in London who is directly linked to Dr. Mohammed al-Massari of the CDLR and Osama bin-Laden.  A native of Kuwait, Khaleel aka Sadaqa moved to the U.S. in the early 1980s to attend school in Michigan. He moved with his wife to Columbia MO around 1994, to attend Columbia College. As early as 1996, he began using the name Sadaqa instead of Khaleel.

In May 1998, Sadaqa bought a battery pack for the phone, and shipped it to Bin Laden via a man in Washington (Tarik Hamdi), prosecutors said. They said Sadaqa next bought 400 additional minutes for the phone on July 30, 1998.  While living as a U.S. resident during the mid-1990s, Hamas Military leader Abu Marzook also had a series of disturbing connections through family and personal associates to a known al Qaeda activist living in the U.S. named Ziyad Helmi Khaleel. Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa set up numerous web sites for the Palestine movement and especially Hamas in Orlando Fl, from 1999 to 2000 approx. At various points in the late 1990s, according to Internic/Network Solutions database records, Ziyad Khaleel was the administrative and billing contact of the official Hamas Web site ( ), the Algerian Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) Web site ( ), the Web site of Liberty for the Muslim World ( ), and the Palestine Times Web site (

The House Homeland Security Committee “has initiated an investigation” into the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and whether he was an overlooked key player in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a letter from the committee chairman to Attorney General Eric Holder said. The House committee investigation is seeking “all documents … in the possession of the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or any other DOJ entity or component” that pertain to al-Awlaki that are related to long-closed FBI investigations of 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 (Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat’s prior roommate)…who had previously purchased a satellite phone for Osama bin Laden.” MORE FROM THIS SOURCE..

FBI double cover up in San Diego CA and Sarasota FL of Saudi support network and Al-Qaeda linked Imam’s that helped the 9/11 Hijackers. Al-Qaeda Imam Anwar al-Awlaki directly linked to Khalid Al-Midhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi in San Diego. Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat shows up in Sarasota in 2000 just priorto 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta and his pals.  Al Qaeda in Yemen Headed Up by Anwar al-Awlaki Who Linked to Ziyad Khaleel in Orlando and Muneer Arafat in Sarasota prior to 9/11/2001. Name and vehicle information for hijackers Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah “fit that of drivers and cars entering Prestancia Sarasota on their way to visit” the Saudis’ Sarasota home.  Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his family hastily left their upscale home at 4224 Escondito Circle in the gated community of Prestancia Sarasota, and the country, about two weeks prior to the terrorist attacks, leaving behind numerous personal items and a trail of suspicion and mystery.
Today the little wood frame house that was the Sarasota Mosque on N. Lockwood Ridge Rd is a multi-million dollar palace where the funds for such a project have been kept secret.  Every place Muneer Arafat shows up, like in Sarasota Fl with the 9/11 hijackers, so do Al-Qaeda agents.  Muneer Arafat was the roommate of Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel, and a member of the Mosque he ran in Boca Raton, Dr. Rafiq Sabir, joined Al-Qaeda and was arrested and convicted on terrorism charges.
