FBI Report Reveals Sarasota Saudi Family’s Involvement with Local Support Network For 9/11 Terrorists Mohamed Atta, Ziad Jarrah and Marwan Al-Shehhi in 2000. Wealthy Saudi businessman Esam Ghazzawi and his son-in law Abdulaziz al-Hijji at 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota Fl had multiple visits by 9/11 terror pilots Mohamed Atta, Ziad Jarrah, Marwan Al-Shehhi and most wanted Al-Qaeda leader Adnan El-Shukrijumah during the time period of June 2000 to August of 2001 prior to the 9/11/2001 attack.
9/11 terror pilots Mohamed Atta, Ziad Jarrah, Marwan Al-Shehhi show up in Sarasota County Fl during June of 2000, during the first several weeks they use bogus addresses and finally in July 2000 Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi rent a small house on W. Laurel Rd in Nokomis Fl which they use as their base of operations up to an including January 2001, a six month rental. The small house on W. Laurel Rd in Nokomis Fl that Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi rented is only a short 15 min ride north on Rte 41 to the home of wealthy Saudi businessman Esam Ghazzawi and his son-in law Abdulaziz al-Hijji at 4224 Escondito Cir Sarasota FL, Esam Ghazzawi and his son-in law Abdulaziz al-Hijji were on the terror watch list. According to security people at the Prestancia gated community in Sarasota the license plates of vehicles owned by Mohamed Atta, Marwan Al-Shehhi, Ziad Jarrah, Wissam Hammoud and Adnan El-Shukrijumah had been to 4224 Escondito Circle Prior to 9/11 Attack.
Wissam Hammoud, Abdulaziz al-Hijji and Mohammed Mezroub Link To Sarasota Mosque on Lockwood Ridge Rd and Al-Qaeda Linked Imam Muneer Arafat Prior to 9/11. According to Sarasota cell phone store owner Wissam Hammoud, Mohammed Mezroub, his photo above in Sarasota Fl was one of Abdulaziz al-Hijji pals in June of 2000 to August 2001, they had talked of going to Afghanistan and fighting for the Mujahedin against US Forces. Mohammed Mezroub was arrested numerous times by Sarasota County Sheriff’s office with multiple Battery Charges, see just one at link https://cms.sarasotaclerk.com/BenchmarkwebCAPS/CourtCase.aspx/Details/944680?digest=j7Qbq7ksYYwguSe3Ns5Icg .

“HOLY MAN” MUNEER ARAFAT TERROR LINKS. Imam Muneer Arafat first began his career in the US in St. Louis and Columbia, MO. In St. Louis he 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. They would butt heads over and over again about other issues including Arafat’s dishonesty about his religious education and immigration status. Imam Muneer Arafat first shows up in Sarasota in March of 2000, he had been hired by the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) mosque. Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat was driving a blue 2000 Isuzu SUV with IL license plate 3678625 in the Sarasota area between June 2000 to Jan 2001 with no drivers license when Mohamed Atta was living at his rental house on W. Laurel Rd in Nokomis Fl and when Mohamed Atta and his pals where visiting Abdulaziz al-Hijji at 4224 Escondito Circle Sarasota Fl, I don’t know if Al-Qaeda linked Imam Muneer Arafat also visited 4224 Escondito Circle but since Wissam Hammoud and Abdulaziz al-Hijji were members of his Mosque I think it is highly likely he did.
Muneer Arafat, 50, the Sarasota Imam and Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel’s prior roommate was arrested by BICE on Nov 22nd 2002 in Sarasota Fl (6 days after I took the surveillance photo of his vehicle in Sarasota) 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 IL license plate 3678625 and no drivers license, flying under the radar. Before arriving in Boca Raton during 2003 at the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR), Muneer Arafat was the Imam of the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB) mosque. Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR) made national headlines when one of its congregants, Rafiq Abdus Sabir, was caught plotting to go overseas and aid members of Al-Qaeda. In addition, one of ICBR’s current Directors, Bassem Alhalabi, was a research assistant for Sami Al-Arian and published materials with Al-Arian at the University of South Florida (USF) all the while Muneer Arafat was their ‘Holy Man’.
