UPDATE: Monday, January 25, 2016, Sarasota Herald Tribune Never Reported Arrest of Imam Muneer Arafat or His Testimony at a Federal Grand Jury Terrorism Investigation in St Louis or His Undercover Work For FBI in 2002. The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported that after his November 2002 arrest Muneer Arafat was required to give testimony at a Federal Grand Jury Terrorism Investigation in St Louis concerning links to the 9/11 attacks and information about his former Al-Qaeda linked roommate Ziyad Sadqua aka Ziyad Khaeel. “One witnesses was Muneer Arafat, who formerly lived in the St Louis area and moved in 2000 to Sarasota, Fla where he was the Imam of a mosque, Arafat is a Kuwaiti of Palestinian descent”. The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported on the undercover work (wearing a wire) Muneer Arafat did for the FBI in 2002 regarding a group of Sarasota Muslim businessmen and their links to a terrorism support network. The Sarasota Saudi al-Hiijjii Family, LINKED TO THE 9/11 HIJACKERS, had been members of the Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center Mosque, where Muneer Arafat was the Imam, from at least 1996 until their departure in August 2001. It would not be unreasonable to maintain that Muneer Arafat also visited the 4224 Escondito Circle house as he was the al-Hiijjii family’s Imam or Holy Man from March 2000 to August 2001.


Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was the subject of a article today on FrontPage Mag by Joe Kaufman whereby Kaufman claimed:In January 2002, a decision was made by ISSB to hire as its full-time imam Muneer Arafat and have Arafat relocate from New York, where he had a residence at the time“. This is a total fabrication by FrontPage Mag and Joe Kaufman. The Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center Mosque at 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl hired Al-Qaeda and Hamas linked Imam Muneer Arafat in March of 2000, he had been preaching Jihad in the St. Louis area up to the end of 1999, he was not in New York City. Muneer Arafat and a co-signer purchased a dark blue 2000 Isuzu Trooper SUV in early 2000 in East St Louis Illinois with plate number 3678625, the vehicle had been previously registered in St Louis MO on the other side of the Mississippi river which divides St Louis, Muneer Arafat drove this vehicle to Sarasota Fl, I obtained surveillance photos of this vehicle in Sarasota Fl in 2002 with the same Illinois license plate number, this vehicle had not been in New York City. Muneer Arafat was living in Maryville IL in 1999 and 2000, he purchased his Isuzu Trooper SUV in January 2000 in Maryville IL which is about 15 miles north of St Louis MO and East St Louis IL, he was not in New York City. Imam Muneer Arafat moved into a apartment complex at Central Sarasota Pkwy unit #1813, Sarasota, FL 34238 on 02/25/2000.

  • Vehicle: 2000 ISUZU LS

  • Plate State: ILLINOIS

In a conversation with Joe Kaufman on January 21st 2016 I told him that Muneer Arafat come from the St Louis area to Sarasota Fl in March of 2000, this fact is well documented, Kaufman appears to have disregarded the facts and fabricate the story about Muneer Arafat coming to Sarasota Fl in January 2002 from New York City, a total lie. There is no way in hell Imam Muneer Arafat could have had a vehicle with Illinois license plates parked on New York City streets from March of 2000 to January 2002 without causing attention by the NYPD. You must get your car registered with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (NYSDMV) when you move to New York. The car must be registered within 30 days of establishing residency, and you must get New York car insurance before you register the vehicle. Munner Arafat did not have a valid drivers license during the time frame of March of 2000 to January 2002, this vehicle was not insured or registered in New York City. I photographed Muneer Arafat’s vehicle in Sarasota Fl on November 16, 2002 it still had the same East St Louis Illinois license number 3678625 as purchased in early 2000, this vehicle had not been in New York City as Joe Kaufman claims. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was Linked to Al-Qaeda Agent Ziyad Khaleel in the USA Prior to 9/11, Imam Muneer Arafat Turned FBI Informant and now Imam Muneer Arafat Appears to be In the Federal Witness Protection Program.

In January 2003 St Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Karen Branch-Brioso interviewed the then acting Imam at the Islamic Society of Sarasota and Bradenton to obtain information about Imam Muneer Arafat for her article “U.S. Looks For Local Terror Ties, Sources Say“, this is where she obtained the timeline of Muneer Arafat coming to Sarasota Fl from the St Louis area in March of 2000: 
U.S. LOOKS FOR LOCAL TERROR TIES, SOURCES SAY; 2 MOSQUES, FUND RAISING DRAW  SCRUTINY OF FEDERAL GRAND JURY.(NEWS)..Article from: St Louis  Post-Dispatch (MO) | January 20, 2003 | Branch-Brioso,  Karen; Shinkle  St. Louis Post-Dispatch…Byline: Karen Branch-Brioso, And Peter Shinkle Of The Post-Dispatch   A wide-ranging federal grand jury investigation in St. Louis is looking into  possible terrorist connections in the Muslim community here, according to people  familiar with the inquiry. Among the subjects of the investigation are two small mosques, Muslim businessmen and fund-raising efforts for Palestinian groups. Prosecutors also have asked grand jury witnesses about Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel, a former resident of Columbia, Mo., and the St. Louis area who bought the satellite telephone that al-Qaida leaders used to plot the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in  Kenya and Tanzania. Sadaqa aka Khaleel, who was never charged in the bombings, raised money  here for Palestinian groups. He reportedly was killed in an auto accident in  Saudi Arabia last year, but federal authorities apparently suspect he may still  be alive. “The feds thought that this Ziyad guy faked his death at hajj (the pilgrimage  to Mecca) to get out of legal trouble,” said a source familiar with the  prosecutors’ questioning.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Fagan, who heads the St. Louis anti-terrorism  task force formed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, would not discuss or  even confirm the existence of the investigation. One of the witnesses was Imam Muneer Arafat, who formerly lived in Manchester IL...Muneer Arafat is a Kuwaiti of Palestinian descent, Arafat was arrested in November 2002 in Sarasota Fl for overstaying his visa…a Sarasota Mosque official, Husni Albarguthi, filling in as Imam at the Sarasota Mosque in Arafat’s absence said Muneer Arafat came to the Sarasota Fl Mosque in March of 2000 from the St Louis area and moved into a apartment complex at Central Sarasota Pkwy unit #1813, Sarasota, FL 34238 on 02/25/2000.

On 20 FEB 2004, Special Agent Scott McAllister and FBI Special Agent Tom Baugher interviewed an individual (Muneer Arafat) who has agreed to testify at trial, who provided the following information: From 11/23/04 until 1/21/04 Muneer Arafat was in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)  (so did Muneer Arafat at one time)attempting to raise money for the Islamic Center of Sarasota and Bradenton (ISSB). The ISSB requested that Muneer Arafat travel to raise money for a new mosque that they hope to build in Sarasota (they did). For his efforts, Muneer Arafat was promised 20% of all monies raised. Muneer Arafat’s plane ticket cost $1,800 and the ISSB paid half of this amount. As a general matter, Muneer Arafat was unsuccessful in raising any money. Muneer Arafat explained that the UAE is making it extremely difficult for its citizens to donate money to Muslims in the United States due to a fear that this acts will be criminalized under new U.S. anti-terrorism laws and also out of a general sense of retribution for the U.S. restricting its citizens’ donations abroad. Husni Albarguthi is the current Imam of the ISSB. Albarguthi is working for free. Albarguthi is married to Ishaq Abuayyash’s sister. Ishaq lives at 101 Nature’s Circle, Sarasota, Florida. Albarguthi also bought Wissam Hammoud’s former store, Budget Mobile, for the sum of $10,000. Khalid Sulieman moved out of Muneer Arafat’s house in September 2003 and is slowly paying back the money he owes Muneer Arafat. Sulieman was the main cook at Sahara restaurant and worked as a detailer at Gulf Coast Auto. Muneer Arafat has an offer from the Boca Raton Islamic Center, P.O. Box 3364, Boca Raton, Florida 33427 to be the Imam and principal of the elementary school (he took offer). Source’s salary would be $3,000 per month. see http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/FDLEShukrijumah.pdf
Sarasota Imam Muneeer Arafat was arrested on May 10th 2003 (his birthday) at the intersection of Bee Ridge Rd and Route 41 in Sarasota Fl for running a red light and having no drivers license, see copy of ticket above, he was booked into the Sarasota County jail. Imam Muneer Arafat was driving the same dark blue 2000 Isuzu Trooper SUV that he purchased in early 2000 in East St Louis Illinois with the same Illinois license plate number 3678625, this SUV had not been in New York City from early 2000 to January 2002 if it had been it would have had New York State license plates. The claim that Muneer Arafat was living in NYC and came to Sarasota in January 2002 is a total fabrication by FrontPage Mag and Joe Kaufman.

Imam Muneer Arafat was linked to the Masjid Al-Ihsaan Mosque 977 Fulton St Brooklyn New York address in 2005 and then again in 2007. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat was listed at an apartment complex on Central Sarasota Pkwy, apartment #1813, Sarasota, FL 34238 on 02/25/2000, see address locations for Muneer Arafat in the USA below:

Before coming to the Islamic Society of Sarasota Bradenton 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl in March of 2000, Muneer Arafat was the Imam at various Mosques in St. Louis and East St Louis. In the St. Louis area, from 1996 to 2000, Imam 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.

“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 pror 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. Louis an 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  http://umarlee.com/

“Holy Man” Muneer Arafat shows up in Sarasota/Venice Fl area in March of 2000, Mohamed Atta and some of the 9/11 Hijackers show up in the Sarasota/Venice area in June 2000, small world! The Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center Mosque at 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl hired Al-Qaeda and Hamas linked Imam Muneer Arafat in March of 2000, he listed local address’s on Central Sarasota Pkwy and at Nature Circle Sarasota, FL during 2000 to 2001. From open court records during the Sami al-Arian trial in Tampa it has been revealed that Muneer Arafat had become an informant for the US Department of Justice and they had paid him $35,000, but was Arafat working both sides of the street at the same time? 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. Muneer Arafat is an al-Qaeda operative he is paid member of the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights (CDLR) same as Tarik Hamdi is a CDLR member and Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel, Muneer Arafat’s ex-roommate, was a CDLR member, same as Rafiq Sabir the “Doc” who was arrested at the Boca Raton Mosque that Arafat was the Imam in 2003. Muneer Arafat the Sarasota Imam and Ziyad Khaleel’s prior roommate was arrested by the FBI Nov 22nd 2002 in Sarasota Fl for overstaying his visa, (immigration charges) and shipped back to the St Louis MO area (he had registered his 2000 Isuzu Trooper SUV in East St. Louis IL) to face a Grand Jury. Muneer Arafat, said he had spent months and months talking to a Sarasota suspect in a used car scam shipped to Middle East originating in Sarasota Fl, 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.

See surveillance photo above of Muneer Arafat’s dark blue Isuzu SUV on 12/20/2002 on Beneva Rd Sarasota, he traveled to the UAE in the Middle East on 12/08/2003 to solicit funds for a new Grand Mosque in Sarasota Fl. From open court records in Tampa it has been revealed that Muneer Arafat had become an informant for the US Department of Justice (FBI) and they had paid him $35,000, but was Arafat working both sides of the street at the same time? Every place Muneer Arafat shows up so do Al-Qaeda agents, he was the roommate of Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Khaleel, he shows up in Sarasota Fl in March 2000 three months later 9/11 hijackers Mohamed Atta and his pals show up in June 2000 in the same area, 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.
