With the upcoming tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, it is as important as ever to stay vigilant as a community against extremist behavior. If suspicious activity is observed or suspected by someone in your community, reporting such activity to the FBI is imperative. In addition, one of the FBI’s missions is to protect civil rights and liberties.Accordingly, it is also important to report any criminal acts taken against a place of worship in, or a member of, your community.Working together in this fashion will help solidify the safety of our community.I am writing to you in hopes that you will spread this message to your partners at AMANA and, that they, in turn, would share the message with their respective people.
The 24 hours-a-day telephone number for FBI-Miami is (305) 944-9101.Thank you for your assistance in this meaningful endeavor. Kyle Scheatzle Special Agent FBI-Miami [/wpcol_1half] [wpcol_1half_end id=”” class=”” style=””]
Br. Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout’s statements
Dear AMANA members, friends and associates, Muslims and other respected community members.
I recently received an official communication from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Special Agent Mr. Kyle Scheatzle that I encourage you all to read at the bottom of this message. I agree with Mr. Scheatzle communication and respect his approach to our community through AMANA’s door that is a proven means of rapid and effective communication through our Miami, New York and Puerto Rico offices with our community of Muslims in America.
Working together with the FBI and other public and private agencies in safeguarding our communities is a must from all American citizens who care about the safety and the security of our nation. I sure that the American Muslim communities around the nation have been working very hard in educating the general public on how to keep America safe and secure. We at AMANA will always call and work for a healthier society to promote a stronger nation.
Echoing our associate, FBI Agent Mr. Sceatzle, AMANA urges you to send this message to all your friends around the nation. In AMANA’s message we urge the FBI and the other public and private agencies around the nation to be more alert and give special attention in preventing hate crimes from being committed against the Muslim and the Arab communities, especially these days.Sincerely, Br. Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, Director of AMANA, the American Muslim Association of North America,
