FDLE REPORT On 8th DECEMBER 2003, Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat follows the radical teachings of AL-BAZ, who is Shaikh Abdul Aziz ibn al Baz (1911—99). Shaikh Abdul Aziz ibn al Baz was the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia from 1993 until his death in 1999. Students of Sheikh bin Baz and those who came after them, especially Jihadis in Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), understood from these edicts that the Saudi regime is at the forefront of the regimes targeted by the edicts of two clerics, ibn Ibrahim and bin Baz. In part thanks to this foundation, the late bin Baz still ranks among the most influential Saudi clerics on the web, even from beyond the grave. Islamic historian Reuven Paz notes that the cleric was renowned for his “persistent attempts to move Saudi Arabia in the direction of strict and severe fundamentalism.” For example, Shaikh Abdul Aziz ibn al Baz memorably ruled that women who study with men are equivalent to prostitutes. Aqeel al-Aqil, a Saudi national placed under U.S. sanctions in 2004 for leading an organization alleged to have aided al Qaeda in more than 13 countries, was one member of the Shaikh Abdul Aziz ibn al Baz Foundation’s board under Saudi King Salman.
FDLE REPORT On 8th DECEMBER 2003, The source provided information regarding WISSAM HAMMOUD (Threat net case # 03-38). WISSAM HAMMOUD allegedly recently traveled to the Middle East, along with Jaleel “George” SAAD, reported to be the head of the Syrian Socialist Party. The purpose of the trip was for WISSAM HAMMOUD to possibly export olive oil to the United States. The source reports that the Syrian Socialist Party is similar in beliefs as the Nazi party was in the 1940’s. Jailed Sarasota cell phone store owner Wissam Hammoud said al-Hijji “entertained Saudis at his residence” at “pot parties” that he himself did not stay for because – unlike al-Hijji as he remembered him – he “did not drink or smoke cannabis.” One Saudi Hammoud identified as an al-Hijji “friend” he brought to a soccer game at the Sarasota mosque in 2000 or 2001 was Al-Qaeda boss Adnan el-Shukrijumah. Wissam Hammoud’s wife and sister-in-law confirmed during interviews that they too knew the al-Hijjis and are familiar with elements of Hammoud’s account.
FDLE REPORT..Mrs. Hammoud, who asked that her full name not be used, got the impression from comments al-Hijji made that he was “anti-American.” Hammoud himself, speaking from prison, said al-Hijji “had a lot of hatred towards everyone in America.” He said he had thought al-Hijji “nuts” when he asked him to go fight in Afghanistan. Wissam Hammoud’s 2003 charges were solicitation to commit murder, retaliating against a witness, use of a firearm during a crime of violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, he could have got LIFE. Wissam T. Hammoud is currently in the Federal Correctional Insititute in Milan MI, a low security federal correctional institution with a detention center, with a release date of 2023, he will be 57. Hammoud agreed to cooperate in unspecified investigations.
Imam Muneer Arafat was also linked to the Masjid Al-Ihsaan Mosque at 977 Fulton St Brooklyn New York for a period of time in 2005 and then again in 2007, Muneer Arafat was last known to be in the Miami Fl area after an eviction in Palm Beach County. NY Rep. Peter King cited a San Diego terrorism task force which investaged an alleged link between Anwar al-Awlaki, Osama Bin Laden, and Ziyad Khaleel, the former roommate of Muneer Arafat. Khaleel had bought the satellite telephone that al-Qaeda leaders used to bomb the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.
