Fahad al-Thumairy worked as a Imam at the King Fahad Mosque in Culver City CA and a diplomat at the Saudi Arabian consulate in the United States, although he was known for his extremist views. Thumairy was found deceptive and suspicious by the US government, and he was in regular contact with Saudi agent Omar al-Bayoumi, who met with Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi and helped the two of them in moving to San Diego. Thumairy's role in the 9/11 attacks led to the United States denying him re-entry in 2003 for having ties to terrorist activity.
“The FBI investigated Imam Anwar al-Awlaki from June 1999 through March 2000 for possible fundraising for Hamas, links to al-Qaeda, and a visit in early 2000 by a close associate of “the Blind Sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman (who was serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center attack and plotting to blow up NYC landmarks). The FBI’s interest was also triggered because Anwar al-Awlaki had been contacted by al-Qaeda operative Ziyad Khaleel who had bought a satellite phone and a battery for Osama bin Laden’s use in the 1998 US Embassy Bombings in East Africa. Ziyad Khaleel had been rooming with Imam Muneer Arafat in the St Louis area andwho took over the Mosque in Sarasota Fl in March 2000, near the 9/11 hijackers flight training ground in Venice Fl who showed up in June 2000.”
The Sarasota Herald Tribune never reported the November 2002 arrest of Imam Muneer Arafat by Federal Agents in Sarasota Fl for overstaying his visa. 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 procurement agent and 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.
Muneer Arafat was the Imam at the Sarasota Bradenton Islamic Center Mosque at 4350 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd Sarasota Fl from March of 2000 to the end of 2003. Mohamed Atta and other 9/11 Hijackers followed Muneer Arafat to the Sarasota area in June of 2000. The Sarasota Saudi al-Hiijjii Family 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. In St. Louis, from 1996 to 2000, Muneer Arafat became a well-known Jihad preaching 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 was preaching terrorism, OK to be a suicide bomber. From open court records in Tampa during the Sami al-Arian trial 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 to spy (wear a wire) on a group of Muslim businessmen in Sarasota Fl during 2002.

Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat’s prior roommate in Columbia MO, Manchester, MO and St Louis was Al-Qaeda agent Ziyad Sadaqa aka Ziyad Khaleel who purchased and shipped a satellite phone for Osama bin Laden to be used in the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Africa. Sarasota Imam Muneer Arafat and Ziyad Khaleel aka Ziyad Sadaqa were fund raisers who gathered up $20,000 for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) in Texas. On May 27th, 2009, U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis sentenced the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) and five of its leaders following their convictions by a federal jury in November 2008 on charges of providing material support to Hamas a designated terrorist organization. HLF was incorporated by Shukri Abu Baker, Mohammad El-Mezain, and Ghassan Elashi. Mufid Abdulqader and Abdulrahman Odeh worked as fund raisers, they received individual prison terms from 15 years up to 65 years, Muneer Arafat for some reason got a pass.
