Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout linked to IAP/ Hamas whines to FOX"Why should we (Muslims)pay for idiot terrorists doing something in England?"

Terrorist linked head of AMANA tells Fox News "We feel this country is ours" "The American flag is mine" "I'm going to fight for it"
August 8, 2005

MIM: Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout head of the American Muslim Society of North America, was pictured together with terrorist wannabe Husain Osman, and 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta on the FOX News website.

Zakkout announced that: "We feel this country is ours"..."I'm going to fight for it".

The AMANA director's affinity for terrorists has prompted him to host fundraisers for groups like Islamic Relief and become vice president of the Health Resource Center for Palestine- which openly solicited funds for the IAP on it's website. Besides hiring the father of dirty bomber wannabe Adnan Shukrijumah, Sofian also frequented mosques where terrorists worshipped such as Dar Ul Uloom in Pembroke Pines. Zakkout claims that he is a 'volunteer consultant to law enforcement' which really means he tells them that every terrorist he meets is a victim of discrimination and profiling.

MIM: In 2003 Zakkout told a journalist that:

I saw (El Shukrijumah, Padilla and Mandhai) at different times in different mosques, and I always said hello. Does that make me a terrorist?"

Zakkout made Gulshair El Shukri (aka Shukrijumah) a director of his Shamshuddin Islamic Center in North Miami Beach. Zakkout was also a spokesman for the Shukrijumah family after Gulshair's demise.

Together with terror linked Imam Ibrahim Dremali of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (whose congregant was recently jailed for pledging allegiance to Al Qaeda).. Both proclaimed Hassoun's innocence to the press, saying he was a victim of bias.

MIM: Excerpt from "Transit Attacks Revive Profiling Debate"

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,165006,00.html

"...But what some derisively call political correctness is simple fairness to many others. Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, director of the American Muslim Association of North America, says Muslim and Arab-Americans have been penalized enough for the acts of a few extremists.

"We are American Muslims. Let the Muslims in that country worry about making the land safer," he said, referring to the London attacks. "We paid for 9/11 big-time and are still paying. Why should we be paying for a few idiot terrorists doing something in England?"

But rather than asking Muslims and Arab-Americans to give up their sense of comfort and protection, AMANA's Zakkout, who volunteers as a consultant to regional and federal law enforcement, says other Americans should more actively develop partnerships with his community.

"You should stop complaining about us and start working with us to prevent terrorism," he said. "We get rejected many times [when we] come forward to help. You should take advantage of us."

Zakkout said despite the prejudice his community has encountered, he and other Muslim Americans should never stop reaching out and trying to help.

"We feel this country is ours. The American flag is mine. Some Americans may not like me, but I don't care I'm going to fight for it."
